DESCRIPTION

The Halcyon Arms designed and built UH-78 Rider is an all-weather medium-lift utility helicopter, designed to be a workhorse helicopter and fill a large variety of roles. It is powered by two turboshaft engines and utilizes two four-blade rotors in a counter-rotating system. While unnecessary due to it's counter-rotating rotors, it also utilizes a NOTAR (No Tail Rotor) airjet system in the tail, allowing for 360o maneuverability of the tail and additional forward thrust. The helicopter is powerful for it's size and can fill most cargo roles of similar classifications of helicopter.

The traditional UH-78 is the most versatile, and can be fitted with most features found in variant aircraft to include a Rescue-Winch, undercarriage radar, the smaller class of winglets (shown above), Mast Mounted sensors, and Wire Strike Prevention Systems. Most models come with the Nightwatch Fire Support system as a part of an idealized military with most units capable of supporting each other in targeting, communication, and data transfer.

To assist in troop transport into combat environments, the UH-78 and MH-78 are fitted with in-floor rappel doors, allowing troops to fast-rope down into combat with doors closed to improve survival chances.

Landing gear are configured in a tricycle pattern and, during flight are retracted into the fuselage for higher speed and to prevent damage.

    Warfare Roles of the Rider
  • Attack (Air-to-Ground)
  • Limited Air-to-Air
  • Reconassiance
  • Troop Transport
  • Cargo Transport & Resupply at Sea
  • Anti-Submarine Warfare
  • Search & Rescue
  • General Utility
  • Firefighting
  • Command & Control
  • Medical Evacuation

DESCRIPTION


The Halcyon Arms designed and built MH-78 Knightrider is a all-weather medium-lift utility helicopter specializing in Special Operations missions, though it can fill a variety of roles. It is powered by two turboshaft engines and utilizes two four-blade rotors in a counter-rotating system. While unnecessary due to it's counter-rotating rotors, it also utilizes a NOTAR (No Tail Rotor) airjet system in the tail, allowing for 360o maneuverability of the tail and additional forward thrust. The helicopter is powerful for it's size and can fill most cargo roles of similar classifications of helicopter.

Normally fitted with a wide array of reconnaissance equipment, the MH-78 is designed to insert troops stealthily behind enemy lines. While typical configurations would specify that the winglets be fitted with external fuel tanks for endurance flight, they may also be fitted with weapon systems to enable support of ground forces, or for Air-to-air defense roles, though limited in range.

To assist in troop transport into combat environments, the UH-78 and MH-78 are fitted with in-floor rappel doors, allowing troops to fast-rope down into combat with doors closed to improve survival chances.

Landing gear are configured in a tricycle pattern and, during flight are retracted into the fuselage for higher speed and to prevent damage.

    Warfare Roles of the Knightrider
  • Attack (Air-to-Ground)
  • Limited Air-to-Air
  • Reconnaissance
  • Troop Transport & Special Forces Insertion
  • Cargo Transport & Resupply at Sea
  • Anti-Submarine Warfare
  • Search & Rescue
  • General Utility
  • Command & Control

DESCRIPTION

The Halcyon Arms designed and built EH-78 Lightrider is a all-weather medium-lift Airborne Early Warning helicopter specializing in Electronic Warfare, though it can fill a variety of roles. It is powered by two turboshaft engines and utilizes two four-blade rotors in a counter-rotating system. While unnecessary due to it's counter-rotating rotors, it also utilizes a NOTAR (No Tail Rotor) airjet system in the tail, allowing for 360o maneuverability of the tail and additional forward thrust.

DESCRIPTION


The Halcyon Arms designed and built AH-78 Paverider is a all-weather medium-lift attack helicopter specializing in assault missions, though it can fill a variety of roles. It is powered by two turboshaft engines and utilizes two four-blade rotors in a counter-rotating system. While unnecessary due to it's counter-rotating rotors, it also utilizes a NOTAR (No Tail Rotor) airjet system in the tail, allowing for 360o maneuverability of the tail and additional forward thrust. The helicopter is powerful for it's size and can fill most cargo roles of similar classifications of helicopter.

Normally fitted with a wide array of reconnaissance equipment and weaponry, the AH-78 is designed to support the insertion of troops into combat situations. The AH-78 is lightly armored, but fills the role of gunship effectively as a small but effective helicopter. It has one 20mm chin-turret, which is directed by the gunner (second pilot) and is ideally fitted with a pair of door machine-guns. Unlike the other variants of the Rider, it can also fit larger, "standard" missiles normally found on fixed wing aircraft, though each hardpoint can only fit one of each type for a maximum of 8 larger munitions. Fitting these also prevents operation of door-guns until expended.

Though normally considered unwise for combat insertions, as the duty is normally left up to other aircraft, the AH-78 can also deploy or exfiltrate a squad of soldiers.

Landing gear are configured in a tricycle pattern and, during flight are retracted into the fuselage for higher speed and to prevent damage.

    Warfare Roles of the Paverider
  • Attack (Air-to-Ground)
  • COIN (Counter-Insurgency)
  • Limited Air-to-Air
  • Reconassiance
  • Troop Transport
  • Limited
  • Anti-Submarine Warfare
  • Search & Rescue
  • General Utility
  • Command & Control

DESCRIPTION

The Halcyon Arms designed and built OH-78 Scoutrider is an all-weather medium-lift reconnaissance compound helicopter, designed to be a scout and fire-director. It is powered by two turboshaft engines and utilizes two four-blade rotors in a counter-rotating system. While unnecessary due to it's counter-rotating rotors, it also utilizes a NOTAR (No Tail Rotor) airjet system in the tail, allowing for 360o maneuverability of the tail and additional forward thrust. Additionally, for forward thrust it has two six-bladed wing-mounted rotors, giving the Scoutrider speed and rate-of-climb not normally attainable by a helicopter. The helicopter is powerful for it's size and can fill most cargo roles of similar classifications of helicopter, fitting a larger pair of engines than the typical Rider.

The OH-78 features a variety of reconnaissance and spy equipment, and serves it's role best as a fire director for artillery, other aircraft, or warships to ensure proper target acquisition and confirmation of destruction. It is fully capable of night operations utilizing multiple radars and infrared imaging systems. The Scoutrider also is equipped with a high definition Wide-Array Real-time Advanced Multi-Spectral Imaging System, allowing it to capture a high volume of high-resolution images at great distance simultaneously, giving the singular helicopter the capabilities of numerous spotters.

Landing gear are configured in a tricycle pattern and, during flight are retracted into the fuselage for higher speed and to prevent damage.

    Warfare Roles of the Scoutrider
  • Attack (Air-to-Ground)
  • Limited Air-to-Air
  • Reconnassiance
  • Troop Transport
  • Cargo Transport & Resupply at Sea
  • Anti-Submarine Warfare
  • Search & Rescue
  • General Utility
  • Command & Control
