    After much procrastination and stress, I've finally gotten around to designing the second installation of my "Resurgam" series. This time around it's a dropship-type vessel.

    I tried to have the dropship be more like a precision-insertion pod a la WWII combat gliders or even the UH-1, hence its compact and squat design. The current 'theory' for the model is that it was designed for quick deployment of troops into a combat zone. With hardpoints dotting the sides of the vessel, missiles and precision guns can be installed quickly, turning the dropship into a close air support aircraft should the need arise. The craft seats about 10 legionnaires and can launch countermeasures such as flares or chaff to help deter any enemy fire the ships might encounter.

    Anyways, have some pictures as always.

    Rough silhouette sketches to get a general feel of what the ship would look like (note the reference pics of the Mi 24 Hind. )

    And the drawn pages (it's...depressingly simple.)
