Omni Warrior Helicopter Challenge
« on: 13 April 2024, 23:44:32 »
Read this post in the voice of Dagoth Ur for maximum enjoyment.

Inspired by my own Omni Savannah Master idea from earlier, the idea of Omnifying other Introtech Vehicles wormed its way into my mind and won't go away. But I don't particularly care for making Omni configs, so I'm foisting this onto you all.

As the title says, Lockheed-CBM Corporation's H-7 Warrior Attack Helicopter is the base of this challenge. Stripped of it's armaments, it has a rather appreciable 10-tons of Pod space.

Rules:
1. It mustuse the same 50-rated ICE on the basis of simplicity and cost cutting, to Lockheed they'd want to let existign Warrior crews use their knowledge of Warrior systems to prevent mix up etc. from training on a whole new powerplant and the like.

2. Armor increase is optional

3. CASE is optional, I'm leaning toward it being Fixed if done so.

4. Try and keep Configs under 2 Million a piece if possible.

A dumb question; chin turret is not allowed, is it?

I'll say no to that.

An omni-fied Warrior chassis that sacrifices a ton of payload for a bit more survivability in the form of more armor and integrated CASE, the base chassis is quite flexible and can emulate most versions of the non-omni Warrior variants, albeit with some sacrifices.

My one would be somewhat odd. I think that since it lacks a turret(because warrior didn't had one at the first place) all it could would be something like yellow jacket - a casemate design that shoots the enemy and keep the distance with the enemy through the engagement. Since in this case the most threatening weapons they will face is gauss rifle, that surely have some chance to hit those, so I changed the armor points and make sure that it hits one gauss rifle shot and survives without any internal damage.

I don't think that its LB2X would cause noticeable damage but that's the only LB-X weapon on my reduced spare tonnage for the increased armor point.

It is intended to make the support fire from distance or harrass the enemy then retreat backwards, although short on ammunition. I did think that it should be used en masse so can only fire for six rounds shouldn't be much a problem, though, but it is indeed a problem.

This is indeed the most weird one, for I want to make an experiment design that uses modular armor. It is the only design on my suggestions that is expected to close the distance with the opponent willingly, and for the reason it gets more armors on its front and sides. With 30 points on its front and 25 points on each of its sides, it could soak several gunfires before perished and buy some time, or hold the line until the reinforces are arrives.

This is not a combat variant, but for protect the others from the missiles. The only 'weapon' it has is a TAG to aim down the enemy.
