LatioSU-31 by Dekus LatioSU-31 by Dekus
The army has build an autonomous jet fighter inspired by minor legendary pokemon Latios. :D
Saw this exact image in my head last night at 03 AM - took my phone and sketched a quick scribble.

Photoshop CS6
Wacom Intuos 4
4 hours
Hand-painted with 2 brushes.
Some reference pics for Latios and some jet fighters.
Streamed entire process on my UST channel.

Should I make my own RC toy company and start producing flying RC pokemon jets? :)

COFFIN, is a system that allows the pilot to see 360º inside the cockpit, and in the outside, it looks the plane is a drone! epic, isn't it :D? The early name, COFFIN, came because in the early concepts, the pilot would use the aircraft while lying down in the cockpit, and controling the plane with his neural system. If i remenber, AC2 and 3, had the most COFFIN aircraft in all games. You should try AC4 and 5 from the PS2! such a great story.. Check it up in Acepedia for more details! :D

Oooh cool!! :)
AC2 on PS1 only had one futuristic looking airplane as I remember. Maybe 2 at maximum.
Thanks for the info.

I always knew that Latios and Latias resembled Aerodynamic planes. But not in a big scale like this before :love:

Latios/as were based off jet fighters.

its funny im writing a story of a demension hopper who chooses to gaurd ash and uses a mecha latios form thats powered by the souldew, this picture really fits the design in a more realistic way sept my design has a lowering undercage area that carries twin vulcan cannons powered by the souldew so it acts like bullet seed, allowing him to overwatch and defend from range with this rotating and gimbling gun aseembly.

Yep.. many people said it would be cooler for LatioSU-31 to have 2 miniguns at his "arms" positions.. I agree..

:iconakanakageki:
Akanakageki Featured By Owner May 3, 2013
well a uav's gotta have flexability in its armament, course with my design the mecha keeps its arms for the obvious need for them seeing as he cans till carry things and lift people.

What's top speed and max service cilling? And do they plan on doing a maned fighter version of this jet too?
Reply
:icondekus:
Dekus Featured By Owner Apr 21, 2013
I haven't really taken care of figuring those out while doing this.. wich I definitely should have done..
But lets say this drone can fly in Stratosphere at 30 000 meters and maximum speed would be Mach 2 because it's so small and light. I bet it would not be very stable at speeds over that one. It would require a massive wing surface area and minimum drag.

Some people did require I'd do a manned version of this too.. Who knows.. If I get some great idea in my mind - maybe I'd do one.

And I just noticed that this drone would have to fly just above the hard deck to avode being picked up by radar stations because the LatioSU-31's has a few places were there are 90 degree angles to it flight surface.

nope, not at all.. I was s HUGE jet fan when I was a kid.
Then I became a huge car fan after junior high school.
Now I'm an artist and I like all vehicles.

the same here and I'm still a fan for jets especially the US Navy's Flight Dimstration team the "Blue Angels" or as they're called during WWII "Devil's Angels"
