C-50A Titan WIP 3 by Venom800TT C-50A Titan WIP 3 by Venom800TT
The C-50A Titan is an ultra heavy lift transport designed for both military and civilian needs. It is capable of transporting up to 1,145 tons of cargo ranging from oversized heavy equipment like mobile cranes, to M1A2 Abrams Main Battle Tanks. Like other large transport aircraft, it utilizes a roller based floor to allow for easy loading and unloading of palletized cargo. It also is capable of handling intermodal shipping containers, which allows for unprecedented versatility for such a large platform.
It has strategic range when used as a military transport, which allows it to carry nearly ship-like payloads Trans-Atlantic or Trans-Pacific. Due to the immense size of the aircraft, it is limited to only airfields with at least 250 ft wide runways and reinforced taxiways. It also requires a 10,000 ft runway length. Overall ground pressure is comparable to heavy lift aircraft such as the Boeing 747-8F, Antonov An-225, and the now cancelled Airbus A380F.

X-48 Much?

Not really.
Yes it is a BWB design, but the X-48 had no influence in the design. I was more so inspired by a Popular Mechanics rendering of a future BWB from 2003. Also was inspired by a BWB design I saw at the Hiller Aviation Museum back in 2006. My original drawing dates back to around 2005-2006, before I even joind dA lol...

I find that hard to believe. Here is an image of the X-48.

lol, shouldn't be hard to believe. The BWB concept actually dates back at least to the 1960's. If I can find the original drawing I did years ago, I will have to scan it.
Anyway I lack the more conventional tail that the X-48C has. Not to mention four engines rather than two. Also may go back to my older design with fuselage mounted engines rather than pylon mounted ones. My fuselage itself is also shaped quite a bit different than the X-48, as my fuselage is much deeper to allow for carriage of oversized items.

Nice work. Have read that a Navy variant will have a deeper section central body with special sealing landing gear doors so that it can land and take off on water as a flying-boat. It has been 40 years since the Navy operated flying boats. Can also be operated at heavier weights as a WIG craft over water, like the Ekranoplans. No worries about pavement then!

Thanks. I had been planning a similar, WIG only aircraft that was more of a flying boat. Closer to the Boeing Pelican in design, just a bit bigger lol...
I do have ideas for smaller Naval amphibious aircraft though. Need to make them 3d sometime...

NASA made a drone similar to the one in the middle

That would be the Boeing X-48, which is a Blended-Wing Body research drone. C-50 is indeed based off of that concept. Eventually the X-48 may lead to real aircraft very similar to my own C-50 :)
