The AT-99 “Scorpion” Gunship -Avatar 1:48

It was built for use on Earth as terrorists and insurgents began gaining access to EMP weaponry to counter drones and other combat machines, whose combat hulls and external electronics were hardened against EMP weaponry, but the "soft" CPU remained vulnerable, short-circuiting and leaving the drone both harmless and helpless. The RDA realized it needed a manned attack craft to negate the obvious disadvantages that would come with the short-circuiting of a drone's CPU, in that a human would remain unaffected by EMP weaponry, while the Scorpion's hardened hull would remain steadfast and flying.

Navigation and imaging

FLIR, radar, IFF, no active flux shielding.

Propulsion

Dual co-axial ducted-fan rotor systems with a total of four 3-bladed prop-rotors. Twin Magnussen KE-76 turbine generators driving counter-rotating annular ceramic motors. This gives the scorpion an effective combat range of 800 kilometers at 100 mp/h cruise or 140 VNE (in pandoran atmosphere).

Weaponry

The gunships lack the basic cargo-carrying capacity and side-door guns of the Samson, but more than compensate for this with superior frontal firepower, while not lacking in the Samson's impressive speed and maneuverability.
It is armed with four gimbal-mounted .50 caliber guns with 700 rounds per minute cyclic rate of fire as close range primary weapons. The Scorpion has two pair of stub-wing pylons to carry its armament. Scorpion carries 190 TK-411 WAFAR (Wrap-Around Fin Aerial Rocket) in ten 19-tube rocket launchers. The use of the rocket varies according to the warhead that can range from tactical applications to impact-based sensor systems. Eight Hawkeye HELLFIRE (Helicopter Launched Fire-and-forget) are used to engage air-to-air targets in conjunction with the nose-mounted sensor suite.
Weapons fire is constrained by an IFF (Identification Friend/Foe) Lockout system, which prevents friendly fire incidents in complex engagements with multiple aircraft and targets. Essentially the gun refuses to fire if the projected probability cone of a friendly vehicle’s flight path will put it in the trajectory of the bullet downrange. All air vehicles in Pandoran service can track each other in a battle theater in real time, using IFF beacons, and this data is integrated into the weapons systems via IFF Lockout.

Trivia

  • The Scorpion fills the role of heavily-armored VTOL weapons platform, similar to the Mil-24 Hind and AH-64 Apache.
  • The Scorpion has a similar design to the UNSC Hornet VTOL gunship in Halo 3.

  14. Great Model, I especially like that clear tape trick for the cockpit, real clever. Are you planning any more vehicles from Avatar? This model should look good next to the Aliens paper models I have from another site. I uncompressed the file and found that it is in PDF format, this means that anyone wanting to add detail painting/texturing can easily do so using either Adobe Photoshop or Adobe Photoshop Elements, both of which can open and print PDF files. You can find training for Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Photoshop Elements at www.howtogurus.com

    ReplyDelete
  28. what about 1:72 scale? I am plastic modeler and I work exclusively in 72.

    ReplyDelete
  29. yo is it possible that you could post the 3dsmax model? I want to make a model of this, stick a couple of motors, servos, and a controller together to make it fly. I can't exactly do this with a paper model, but I might be able to 3d print the thing. I'll send you a vid of the final product if/when I finish it!

    ReplyDelete
  30. Just make a SB paper model and fill it with epoxy glue, then paint. I'll do it in that way.

    btw: what about 1:72 scale comment is mine, I've rescaled it myself now.

  49. Very interesting concept design for an attack craft helicopter. Is this based off a design of an actual helicopter in the US military or from a science fiction game or movie? I wonder if military strategy in today's world could use such a weapon?
