TROOP TRANSPORT CHALLENGE

Your goal is to build an aircraft or ground vehicle designed for carrying troops. Military transport aircraft are typically fixed wing and rotary wing cargo aircraft which are used to airlift troops, weapons and other military equipment by a variety of methods to any area of military operations around the surface of the planet, usually outside the commercial flight routes in uncontrolled airspace. Originally derived from bombers, military transport aircraft were used for delivering airborne forces during World War II and towing military gliders. Some military transport aircraft are tasked to perform multi-role duties such as aerial refueling and, rescue missions, tactical, operational and strategic airlifts onto unprepared runways, or those constructed by engineers.

Rules

  • Can be fictional or a replica
  • If fictional, you must provide info about when it would have operated
  • Keep it relatively realistic (use the various Quinjets from Marvel as a stopping point for how futuristic it can get.)
  • If you have a question about the build's qualifications, just ask
  • unlimited XML modding is allowed, however
  • No mod parts (ex. Instrumentation, smoke trails, weapons bay fuselage, etc)
  • Your craft can have weapons, but keep in mind realism
  • Part count must be below over 100 but under 1000
  • Must be a new build, no reposts
  • Must be a successor (unless you've got a good reason why you can't)

Judging

builds will be judged on a 50 point scale based on;
- Design (Realism for the provided time period) - 10 points
- Flying performance A. (realism for the time)- 10 points
- Flying performance B. (did I enjoy flying it, does it fly well?)- 10 points
- Build quality (are decals and details well made? are they present? does the build look sloppy?)- 10 points
- Description quality (if a replica, does it give basic facts? if fictional, does it explain the craft well and provide a time period? are the controls listed? are there screenshots?)- 10 points


Prizes

*each category is judged separately
- 1st place: 15 upvotes + a spotlight (if possible)
- 2nd place: 10 upvotes + a spotlight (if possible)

    One, I’m in; two, slight hint iff you can’t make it a successor, just remove all cockpits, add it as a subassembly, then glue it to this plane

    Hey man, for some reason this did not register as a sucsser to your challenge (maybe because I changed the name at the last minute but I don’t know) Here is my Aircraft submission anyway if that’s okay with you. I hope you like it. I made it just under the 1000 part count (I had to take a few useless parts off, but other then that it flies awesome).

    I am sorry. I will be entering my DHC-6 into Eternal’s GA challenge. The build fits better in that challenge.
    -Sorry, Chancey21
