The side guns that remind one of an AC-130 armament and the small gun pod at the nose of the craft are more defensive than attacking. The huge size of the craft and mass/inertia makes turning on a dime difficult.
The aim is to cover as many attack angles as possible. To further ensure survivability, 3 of these helicopters go in a wolf pack to attack heavily armed fleets head on, while large squadrons of smaller Allied craft swat out the enemy interceptors from the sky. [link]

The tail gunner pod at the rear, the 200mm (est) gatling cannon, and the twin 1800mm (est) main guns are for quick disemboweling of ships with standard ship armor (in this universe probably as thick as a number of feet).

That is one of the most ridiculously heavily armed helicopter/flying battlecruisers I have ever laid my eyes on. :)

unfortunately i dont have any points :(, but i can give you a llama badge?!

I saw the Llama badge and thanks for it. But I would still prefer some points instead.

By blowing up the image to A3 size, a lot of details that need correcting have showed up, so this is quite a project in itself. I can't upload a drawing with so many obvious errors into deviantart this way.

If you check out the price its around $7 for the most basic set of points. My donation pool is empty and no one seems to care, so some points would be greatly appreciated. If you can't then maybe you can talk some friends into donating some. Doesn't matter how big the donation is.
