Weight-wise it could lift it. CH-54A lift capacity was 25,000 lbs. The PACV weight was 15,660 lbs. I can’t find a pic of any such lift, but this is close. I can hear “Ride of the Valkyries” playing in the background.
It’ll be interesting to see how they mould the air cushion- was hoping they would show that in this update but I guess we’ll have to wait to see the sprues. Glad to see they’ve got the big monster grin/sharkmouth on the box art!
It’s about Time! this is the most( in my mind) unique vehicle. Ever snce I built Masterpeice’s models decades ago I couldn’t wait for an injection version. Granted there weren’t that many in use during the VietNam conflict it was still the scariest. Just imagine seeong this thing blowing through the reeds while you are in something smaller than a rowboat!
when isee that image of the CH54 picking up that PBR i can’t help but think of the film Apocalypse Now when LAURENCE FISHBOURNE watches the Air Cav helicopter picks up the little PBR and utters the line “Hey Clean, they’re picking up the boat”.
