    1. Not sure what their name for the gunpod is, but those are Russian Hinds. The 2nd ugliest chopper in the world.

    6. @SumoSnipe-typical “squid” respose, does the US have a flying tank that can be used as an attack helicopter and still deliver a squad of troups while getting the shit shot out of it? Go get back in a hot bunk.

    7. @Heavymetal86:Apaches.
      @Recondomoe:My apologies, I forgot to state “In my Opinion”. I like Ugly. And no, the US doesn’t field a flying tank/apc, which I think is dumb.

    8. @SumoSnipe: So your saying the A-10 is dumb?

    9. Not at all. I’m saying it is dumb that the US hasn’t crossed an Apache attack chopper with an HH53 Jolly Green Giant. The A-10 is another so ugly its beautiful machine(to me). I meant flying Tank/Armored Personnel Carrier. A 2fer1 deal that the Hind is. We have flying tanks: Apache, Warthog. But they are lacking in extra seating and cargo space. The Sikorsky 60 series(Pave Low, Pave Hawk, Black Hawk, Sea Hawk, ect) can take some damage, but not like the Hind or Apache.

    10. I don’t really see how aircraft can be “attractive” or not…maybe cars…

      The stealth bomber is not “attractive” but it’s a multi-milliona dollar (or billion) machine…who the hell would try and make these look aesthetically pleasing?

    11. I’ve been told helicopters of any sort are terribly expensive and inefficient. Especially heavy brutes like this, but their mobility is a necessity. That’s why the US isn’t in any rush to fork out dough for a new toy when the ones they got work just fine… usually. Chinook gunships are pretty wicked cool anyway and they can be loaded with more weaponry than the Hind, carry like 30 troops and are still pretty fast.

      Personally, I say the Mi-28 Havoc is the ugliest.

      @casemods: Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, but what sort of primitive mentality can’t understand that everything and anything can benefit from aesthetics?

    12. @sylvanish: Of coarse, but why waste that money and effort on something that needs attention in other areas far more then looks?

    13. BHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAP

    14. Proof that ugly can indeed be sexy…

    15. Aesthetics aren’t just appearance, but also the harmonious beauty of form and function gracefully working together. Thus the sleek sweetness that naturally comes with aerodynamics…

      But it is always wiser to perfect the basic function before the trimmings.

      But then, in contemplating beauty, I remember that there is beauty in all things and it only takes the right perspective to see it. Heeyuk.

      I’m still sad the Comanche got canceled. Sure it was little more than an Apache with curves… but that’s why i loved it… and wanted a purple one… with neon green tiger stripes. I’d kill for that thing… and then I’d kill with that thing. (poachers mostly. and the Vatican, but i’d give them twenty minutes to vacate it first.)

      Anyone who gets me one for x-mas, can come along for rides and have me as a sex slave (so long as I still had ample time to fly it and hunt bad guys.) But I’ll settle for a Little Bird.

    16. The Apache is the flyest looking helo every d00d. If you think it’s ugly, then you suck.

    17. Yes I do. every time I breathe in.
      @Phyreblade:Thats what I was trying to say…
      @sylvanish:The Havoc is up there,but after the Hokum on my list… that one just hurts my brain thinking about the mechanics of it.And your choice of colors? That would scare the hell out of me, even without the weaponry.
