EV-4 Guardsmen by ONI-Defense EV-4 Guardsmen by ONI-Defense
The United States replacement for the E-2 and E-3. In the world of UEA High Command the US has little money so few vehicles are built to perform one role. The EV-4 although smaller than the E-3 can perform its main job but also be used on carriers in the USN due to its VTOL tilt jet design. It has a crew of 19 (2 pilots and 17 equipment operators). I borrowed and idea from Yukikaze that is having the radar array under slung on the aircraft. I also tried out the layout of the X-22 a VTOL ancestor to the XV-22 and V-22. Two sets of wings with the front being shorter than the rear wing. The EV-4 has a hardpoint to carry a refueling pod to refuel some of the aging aircraft that do not use a clean fusion reactor for power. It has a CV-4 Motherbird variant for carrying up to 30 troops in seats or 40 floor sitting.

EV-4's have rear extending landing gear and a front ski/wheel the ski being for both balance and for landing in snow (the world's climate has dropped 50 degrees so winters are long).

Nice concept.

they played around with the twin wing tilt engine concept for a while I think...if memory serves me right it was just that technology, at the time, hadn't caught up with the concept.

I expect now that they have the bugs worked out of the tilt engine system there will probably be craft like this in the future.
