The XC-519 is a typical cargo aircraft. Small turbojets added for STOL capability. Main feature of this design - large sofisticated wingtip tank. It's shape I picked up from one old windtunnel report. Report stated some improvement in L/D ratio. Tanks may used for jet fuel, cryogenic fuel (such as liquid methane) or electronic warfare equipment.
You artwork is phenomenal! You truly poses imagination. so many of your designs are so far away from anything that exists now, it is utterly delightful to the senses to see. Very well done and please keep them coming. If I for some reason end up with enough money to create a video game, I will make you the lead designer. Absolutely fantastic work! Please, Please keep it up!
A very unique design ....... a looking presentation also.
It could be the STOL version of the Il-76 xD
It's a baby B-36!
