Sort of reminds me of the original Zeon fighters/AWACS... though in a good way as those had some horrid design choices.

I love the update. The folding wings were always neat.

I was always a little disappointed that the games didn't let you play with aircraft. Plodding about in an Atlas is one thing, but using a dropship as a gunship sounds even more fun.

you can only do so much on a budget.

That's where people like the good folks at MekTek come in, if only they'd get the idea to do it, and the time to carry the idea out. Already they've got new Jump Jets in the works that will let Mechs literally fly around, and one video they showed of those in action showed the Mech in question fighting dropships.

I would like to see a pure-assault dropship that trades carrying capacity for godlike firepower. There's really no stopping that gracefully.

In one fanfiction I read, people modded a Leopard, taking out the mech-bays and turning it into a pure gunship. If they put that in a game, it would be quite the sight to see.

At one time I read about a certain type of dropship that was fitted out as you describe, but with a very light complement of anti-capital weaponry. Some were even disguised as commercial ships. I believe this is called a 'Q-ship'.

Well, here's hoping they put one in a game, then.
