Union class dropship by Punakettu Union class dropship by Punakettu
This thing has been collecting dust for a while so I decided to finally finish it up. Or at least make it look decent enough for display. The camo pattern may not have been the best choice for displaying features now that I look at it... Maybe I'll update it later with something better.

So yeah, it's a dropship from Battletech. 78 meters tall, 3600 tons heavy and capable of carrying 12 mechs from orbit to planet surface.

i never understand why everything in mechwarrior is so light, is it because other planets gravitational force makes them so?

Because a machine of this magnitude would be way heavier, so would the mechs... 100 tons? pfft, more like 2k tons+

Hi Punakettu, I just wanted to let you know I've used your fantastic dropship in a picture I created for a casual Mechwarrior RPG campaign I'm running for my local gaming group. If your interested you can find it here: loclif.deviantart.com/art/Nort…

Keep up the great work!

Very cool! Lots of 'Mechs get done, but DropShips and rarely get illustrated. Nicely done :clap:

I have a Union, Shearling, featured in my own BattleTech novel [link] :)

When I first saw this in your gallery, I read the title as "Onion class dropship".

Brings back memories of playing "Mechwarrior- Mercenaries" on my old Windows '95. Thank you!

Them goddamn Gauss cannons knocked the shit out of my mechs.

These things are a bugger to kill.

I've been pondering about making a scene based on the mw2 mercs intro video for a while now so I can put this thing in to some use. Who knows... ;)
