Bomber Dev Sketch 01 by MikeDoscher Bomber Dev Sketch 01 by MikeDoscher
This is a developmental sketch for a combination atmospheric and space bomber for my 'Spacecraft of the First World War' project.

The final version will be a full color plate in the book. Details to follow.

Technical pencil with slight digital cleanup.

at first glance i thought it was an A-10 thunderbolt II, aka the warthhog. www.badassoftheweek.com/wartho…

You and me both. I was kinda disappointed since the 'ole Hog is my favorite machine of war of all time, but this is really cool.

the warthog is basically a flying cannon capable of firing 30 30mm sabot rounds per second strapped to a flying tank equipped with heavy armor and hellfire and maverick ATGM missiles.

It's why I fell in love with it on first sight.

...but isn't ATGM missile redundant?

Wasn't exactly what I meant, but in retrospect that works, too.

Also, I remember a story where in the Gulf War, a pilot had his A-10 nearly shot to pieces. It was missing an engine, half of it's left wing and had fuel tanks full of bullet holes. He didn't notice the full extent of the damage till he climbed out of the cockpit. Apparently, he said it still flew fine.

It's one of several reasons I wanna get inside the cockpit of one. Nothing excites me more than the prospect of flying one of those fork tailed devils and blowing sh*t up.

Oh, yes. In this case it is, though I'm not sure if my description is technical correct. It's really just a 0.5 mm mechanical pencil.
