Autoflyer

On the Britannian controlled Fenia systems, civilians are constantly in danger from the daily genocidal famines and purges from the government, terrorist attacks, pirating and organized crime, border raids, riots, uprisings and beer shortages. Thus autos carrying vital cargo were given wings to soar above the daily carnage, weapons to protect against other people in the sky and armour to stop a size one gun from spilling beer into the street.

Image

Pilots see through a small blind in the steel windshield.

Image

The rear usually has a large machinegun to gun down rioters and clip the wings of other vehicles.

Image

This model has a complement of four rockets mounted underneath the bow.

Shitty engine pic.

This is a neat contraption. How is it supposed to fly, though? Do those little wings flap really, really, fast?

Also, there is no greater threat to public order than a beer shortage.

The two engines on the back. A smaller one used for ascension and turning and a larger one for forward moment. There is also a propulsion mechanism used for hovering. The wings are mainly used for steering, gliding, balance and ascension/descension.

This vehicle needs turbines to give it some lift. And they would look totally awesome.

I love the resemblance with the WW2 German Halftracks: Image

Nice build, Silvy.

Looks like he has them, but they're quite small.

Besides that, this thing is pretty cool.
