As a matter of fact, the Blackfish is almost exactly the size of C-130.

Very cool project, this reminds me of what I attempted to do some years ago regarding VTOLs

Keep up the good work!

Why  don`t you try to get these models in Arma 3?  They will fit neatly in the time frame of it.

Hey everyone, just wanted to drop a note to say we are still around.  We are closing in on an alpha so we can get some game testing done.  But it is sloooow.  RL continues to interfer.

That is an early artwork from BI for the Blackfish that came out with Apex DLC.

So things are slow, but since everyone wants WIPs...

This is the MAV-85 Omaha, Special Operations version of the V-280.  It carries up to 12 Operators, and can be loaded with 12 DAGR, 2 Griffin missiles or 2 SDB, or 2 AGM-114.  It has a 20mm turret (pilot or co-pilot) and two 7.62 mini-gun at crew stations. The 7.62 mini-gun of the crew are remote operated (CE and gunner) and able to auto-track targeting solutions.

Minor curiosity: are the tails slightly shorter and less swept back?

Yes the "V" tail we use is swept differently than those on the V-280 demonstrator.  We used the tail section from the graphics and drawings of the V-280 as Bell expected the initial version of the aircraft to look like if fully developed for the military.  it is very likely that the final version of the real aircraft will differ from the demonstrator and the version we picked if it is fully developed.  As an example, compare the Lockheed/Martin JSF prototype to a USMC F-35C.

@QuakeIVSorry for the delay on answering.  Unfortunately, no.  Because Arma VTOL are in the "plane" class of Arma, the AFM does not apply.  One of the reasons for the length of time is that we have been working on the flight qualities to give the aircraft the flight qualities that the U.S. Army is asking for with the real aircraft.

These models are GORGEOUS. Glad to see someone is giving these awesome airframes the recognition they deserve. Hopefully this makes it's way to the steam workshop some time so it can get some more attention.

Hey folks, know there are many waiting for this mod. The very small team working this effort all have very demanding day jobs and families as well.  We would love to put this out tomorrow, but the available time to work it just ain't there.  It will be a while yet before we can put it on the street.  Thanks for the patience.
