I would imagine this guy would have the same function as the A-10 Warthog, and therefore would benefit from a gatling cannon for Close Air Support. If it is 'light' then it would have the same armament as a Bell UH-1H  with mounted machine guns but without the bombs and small missile pods.

Joined wings! Another one of the concepts I love, and here it's executed beautifully. I really enjoy how you mix unconventional design with practicality. Great stuff!

ok, I like this attacker! engine nacelles like the a10, and those wings.... looks like it can get somewhere fast, slow enought to lay a lot of firepower on a target, and glide longer then other attackers.

I question the aerodynamics of this craft.

Many questioned the aerodynamics of the A-10, but it still fly's... ^_^

Looks good!
Is it just me or is the perspective of the nacelle a little wonky?

Agree, the left one looks higher then the right.

Nice design but aren't the engines a little exposed to hostile fire where they are?

its the same with the A-10, Its just not many targets are left to shoot back. [link]

And, like the Warthog, this isn't an aerial combat unit, it's a ground attack ship. It has to be slow in order to engage ground units effectively. It will lose against even a moderately fast jet fighter. That's why it probably has to be fielded with a fighter escort. It's the price of specialization.

A10 (more commonly called warthogs) are something you don't want to see if you in an tank or if you just see the thing flying at you

Yes, you right.
I think more about STOL with rotated engine nacelle, than save engine from fire)

Fair enough but the way there positioned if ones hit the other one stands a good chance of surviving, still it an awesome design man, I would love to have a shot of one for the day
