Halberd FL 1 WiP by Quesocito Halberd FL 1 WiP by Quesocito
Halberd Ground Attack UAV

Work in Progress.. Almost complete.

Depicted here with a load-out of 12 x Maverick II's, 2 x Jericho missiles (big ones) and 2 x 15mm Vulcan guns. The Jericho missile has a cut away view.

Based on a design from M.A.X. (1990's pc game)

unmanned a10! :D but i doubt it could fly with just one of the wing fans... :P

Yeah,almost complete..of course by now you still havenīt the replaced those ridiculous little cannons with the 32mm GAU cannon from granpa to make it a fully and completely worthy successor of her undoubted big idol.

Sorry Iīm a real freak for high cadence.

You know, since this is based off the A-10, did you know their making an unmanned A-10? It's designation is the A-10PCAS. Here's more info: [link]

Looks like the bastard child of an A10 Warthog and a predator drone.

I like it.

Very cool concept indeed! I could actually see the engines on the wingtips working just fine if they rotated forward after the turbines kicked in. The design would have to change slightly to reduce the drag but I think it would work.. again very cool. :)

Nice design. Based off the A10 Thunderbolt II? Either way, should be able to do some damage...

yes it is.. I love the A-10! its roughly the same dimensions as well, although the wings are slightly shorter.

Fair enough. So roughly as big as a full sized A10, remote/AI piloted with a respectable arsenal. Niiice...

Those fans would need to be a lot bigger. I like the A-10 inspiration though.

its supposed to somehow be using advanced technology to maintain lift with such small fans. if u consider the f-35, and how small its fan is(taking into account the jet nozzle as well), these are a lot larger..

Not necessarily bigger, but deeper. The ducts are way too shallow to generate any useful thrust.

But I, too, love where the design is going. Smooth detailing!

There's no evidence to support that shallow ducts mean no useful thrust. Look at WW2 planes - their propellers had no ducts at all yet pulled the aircraft quite strong didn't they?

The shallow ducts may mean lower efficiency due to turbulence at the edge of the fan blades not getting nullified but other than that this is a perfectly viable design.

The small fan diameter means a higher necessary air velocity in order to achieve the same thrust and this means somewhat lower efficieny but lower overall weight as well.
