View Full Version : Colonial Marine Platoon Dropship Deck Plan (near future)

As promised yesterday when I posted the armored fighting vehicle object, the completed drop ship deck plan.

Space Colonial Marine Platoon Dropship (orbital engines and VTOL fans) with pilot, copilot, navigator (missing from this deck plan), loader, full platoon of 36 marines, 6 combat motorcycles and a 3 man armored fighting vehicle, able to launch from orbit. (Everything done in Xara Designer Pro 9, except VTOL fans which are rendered 3D images.)

Think of it, from an orbiting fleet or from L-5 colonies anything from a platoon with a single dropship or 200 dropships for a full marine division landing anywhere on planet in 10 minutes or less. Differing compliments such as 4 fighting vehicles and crews, main battle tank and troopers, a field hospital, a tanker of fuel, or submersibles and fast boats - any force for any mission required. This is the workhorse of the colonial marines.
