Just a different paint scheme while trying my hand at Camouflage for INKY00's Avatar Scorpion.
Can't improve on the Brilliant work.
Thanks again Inky00.
Background information for the AT-99 Scorpion Gun-ship "Avatar"
The AT-99 “Scorpion” Gunship (or simply Scorpion) is a VTOL gunship and the designated term for a fire-support aircraft of
the RDA. It is equipped with ducted-fan rotors that are similar to the Aerospatiale SA-2 Samson's.
It was built for use on Earth as terrorists and insurgents began gaining access to EMP (Electromagnetic pulse) 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.
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).
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.
