*edit: changed the suspension of the fuel tanks.

The XXX is a heavy modular attack helicopter. The base version of the it is easily converted, to fulfill different roles. These include an artillery variant, a gunship variant for ground support, a long range laser variant to take down precisely heavy targets and an anti air version. With a crew of three it is meant to operate for extended periods being also able to form something like a flying wall, defending larger territories against air strikes or threats on the ground. Equipped with four hardpoints on the hull and two exchangeable wings for different roles it can carry a huge variety of sensors and weapons.
Medium armored it relies mostly on its passive and active countermeasure systems, being independent of other systems and needing not much support against missile, rocket and to an amount gun attacks. It carries his on ECM and ECCM system with a base version built in and two wing pylons reserved solely for ECM pods.
The version seen here is the laser variant, with additional fuel tanks to deal with the high energy consumption. It also has lesser APS systems than the normal variants as it flies normally much higher and is therefore less vulnerable to ground attacks.

The point defense variant can be seen here:…
A ground support version can be seen here:…

Couldn't come up with a proper name, just happy my Computer didn't break down while modelling this.

slightly different load out:

And as always hope you like it and comments and crits are welcome!!!

Just a rough sketch of how it lands and for a better understanding of size.
While the turrets lifts up a bit the legs rotate into the boxes on the side and have to telescope a bit to get the right lenght.
the mini-contest for designing a tank body is over and we got a winner. Only two entries but well.. I didn't expect any so it's more than nothing. :P Thanks to
:iconmrjumpmanv4: and :iconcadianconcript: for joining! Was nice seeing what other people had in mind, here you can see what they came up with!

:iconrob-cavanna: and I decided on :iconmrjumpmanv4:'s design, as it seemed to fit the overloaded feel of the turret best. Although I like the other designs as well. Especially the ship.
So congratulations to the winner and thanks for participating to both...:P
