DA3: DSN Ornithopter Ground Attack Aircraft
MILPO-CAT10 Ground Attack Aircraft Duggonian Space Navy model FG-222 "Ornithopter"
About this creation
Hi all, this build is for the game Decisive Action 3, for one of the military categories, so if you appreciate the build feel free to toss me a like and raise my military power!

As you can see, it is digital which I don't do much anymore... but I was in Japan for two weeks and I had to build!! So I went BIG.


It is heavily based off of a model I found online of the Ornithopter from the book Dune (one of the top books of all time). This is a craft that would fly partly by flapping its wings, which I thought was a pretty neat idea! Thus my design has articulation in two joints on each wing.

Here's the rules I had to meet:


CATEGORY 10: Ground Attack Aircraft (MILPO)

In DA3, the Ground Attack Aircraft is used to attack targets on the ground with greater precision than strategic bombers. They are modern attack aircraft that may be expected to function in high threat environments where enemy air defences preclude the use of strategic bombers.

Your Ground Attack Aircraft MOC must comply with the following 4 SPECs:

1. Your Ground Attack Aircraft MOC is minifig scale and must accommodate 2 pilots.

2. Your Ground Attack Aircraft requires wings that must be photographed at 2 distinct angles. (up/down, straight/swept back, etc.)

3. Your Ground Attack Aircraft must feature 3 distinct weapon systems.

4. Your Ground Attack Aircraft must include at least 1 air intake.

Two pilots in a cutaway:


Wings in multiple positions (see above pictures for standard position and below picture for folded transport mode and picture in your mind the whole thing flapping and flying like a maniacal bird):


Weapons:
A. Tail laser cannon thing
B. Fuselage mounted repeating cannons
C. Wing strake (inboard) mounted missile launchers

And air intakes are also visible via this picture.



Couple of bonus shots:
First is the back of the aircraft, you can see there's a hatch that folds down.


Finally I made a version with the opposite side of the crane gantry held up so it would be sure to meet digital build specs for the game. Let me know if you need to see any other details, I'll also include the file. It's not a really sturdy solid build, but everything should be obvious that it would work in real life!

Haha thanks Patrick! That's actually why I swapped out the main picture from the overall view. Everything looked so tiny in that one.

Thank you general Andrei! I kept deciding to grow it since it's digital and it isn't too hard to repeat or add huge chunks :)

Quoting Zach Sweigart Doug, my man, you've outdone yourself. This is amazing! The ship itself is cool. Reminds me of a more symmetrical B-Wing. The hangar is just the perfect setting.
Thanks Zach!! I realized I never posted the link to the source material, but yeah the designer had a lot of cool ideas so I tried to stick to it pretty closely.

Above and beyond, well done General Hughes your Ground Attack Aircraft is specifications-accurate and ready to vie for air superiority in the unfriendly skies of DA3. Good luck!
