The first concepts for a near future military dropship, swooping into warzones under heavy fire to enter or extract troops and light vehicles.
Sketches of a military dropship. I tried to keep the shapes relatively realistic and not too steeped in fantasy while still trying to explore some unique shapes. I tried to find different balances between large bulky armour and sleek speedy ships. The main requirements are a large cargo area for troops/vehicles and VTOL ability - either via turbines or rotating jet engines.
