I'm fairly sure this thread is in the proper spot - if not, then my apologies in advance.
Anyhoo, I was looking at some of the ROC vehicles today and while I like most of them, the Cobra Gunship has consistently given me a wierd feeling. It seems like a free-floating anti-gravity vehicle, since there isn't any spinning blades or thruster jets to keep it in the air... this highly futuristic concept struck me as something I had seen before... but where??
Then it hit me... The Cobra Gunship is nearly IDENTICAL to the Helghast Dropship from the Playstation Killzone series!
The Cobra Gunship:
The Helghast Dropship:
Items to note:
*Metal color scheme
*The grated landing struts
*The defensive weapons on the sides and front (difficult to see in the Killzone picture, but the weapons are both missiles at the sides and guns on the nose)
*Troop compartments on the sides
*The 'fish tail' at the end
While I'm not accusing Hasbro of copying the concept, it DOES provide me with a new love for this vehicle. I dont play video games often, but those of you who have played Killzone know that the Helghast Dropship means trouble - troopers repel down from them en masse and you have no chance of destroying them at any time. I now view it as serving the same role for the Cobras - their own blackhawk, dropping off Vipers and doing some damage on the way in and out.
Opinions? : )

I think that the ROC Cobra Gunship looks more like the Resolute Dragonfly....

yeah, unless they do some serious splain'(in the movie) the "gunship" is just a fictional weird magical craft that make no sense in my mind. not unlike the skyhawk or trouble bubble...if you have the newest free floating techmology, what is the point of having any of the arcane techmology? who cares? they're just toys. or a religion, if your'e so inclined.

Looks like a stubby rotorless Comanche, to me. I still think it looks cool, despite its aerodynamic impossibilities.

if by identical you mean nothing at all, then yes, I agree, they are identical.

After a 12 hour shift, a bottle of wine, two beers, taking my contacts out, and squinting in the dark....Yep looks just like it.

I thought the ROC was more akin to the Chopper in Arnie`s film about cloning "The 6th Day"
