An A/CV-2 Hybrid Vertibuck.

The V-2 Vertibuck from Fallout Equestria: Wings of Steel was originally put into service roughly one year before the outbreak of the Great War, serving as the workhorse for the Equestrian Air Force. They served as transports, gunships, and recon aircraft among others, their versatillity allowing them to fill nearly any role that was needed.

OperationEdit

Flight ControlsEdit

The yaw, pitch, and roll commands for a Vertibuck are controlled by a pair of specialized wing clamps, which fit over the leading edges of the pilot’s and co-pilot’s wings. These clamps are then in turn connected to a servo relay in the floor under the console, via a control rod.  When the pilot angles his or her wings, this causes the rudder, ailerons, and elevators to respond accordingly, allowing them to precisely control the Vertibuck.

The throttle, engine tilt, flaps, and other manner of controls are all controlled manually by the pilots from within the cockpit.  Some variants have the addition of a control yolk, which flips out from beneath the console.  This allows for both Unicorns and Earth Ponies to pilot a Vertibuck if needed, though it is much harder.

All models of Vertibucks are equipped with an autopilot feature, which, at the most basic level, will keep the Vertibuck in the air and on course.


Crew AssignmentsEdit

PilotEdit

The pilots are primarily responsible for flying the Vertibuck.  They are in charge of the Vertibuck, though they aren’t necessarily the highest ranking or most senior pony on board.  Other duties include being responsible for manning the secondary weapons, and doing routine maintenance.

Co-PilotEdit

The co-pilots are responsible for manning the primary weapons of the Vertibuck, and for flying it if the pilot is incapacitated or is not flying the Vert for some reason.  They are the second-in-command on a Vertibuck, regardless of rank or seniority.  Their other duties include doing the pre-flight checks, and helping the pilot with routine maintenance.

Crew ChiefEdit

The crew chief is an optional position on all but the C variant of the Vertibuck.  They are responsible for maintaining the Vertibuck, ensuring that it’s in good working condition.  In their absence, the pilot and co-pilot take responsibility for the position.
