Missing Information aims to recreate Valve's original Half-Life 2 storyline found in Raising the Bar.
I wonder how is it gonna fly with such a little rotor?)
it looks very unbalanced even a combine synth gunship had its propeller approx in the middle and not in the rear
The Combine works in mysterious ways :)
That's probably why it was cut!
They could resize the rotor later.
rotor is probably for propulsion as it could very well be using a dark energy powered anti grav or super conducting electro magnetic levitation system that utilizes the earths magnetic field ... you know since the Combine are always being depicted as making the most of whatever resources they find in whatever environment they are in.
Not only this, but, regarding the way the Combine are depicted, this design also follows the general line of asymmetry that is so common for Combine structures, that's what makes them easily recognizable.
As for the balance, a rear rotor is not the only way a helicopter can be balanced. For example, a fluid moving in the hoop around the rotor, in the opposite direction in relation to the rotor, thus counteracting the rotating force, shall make the vehicle stable as well.
It has two rotors one in the front under the cockpit and the other in the back.

Glad to see you guys are still active!
I though they were dead tho i'm glad they are back up stronger than ever!!!
Don't you worry child :)
Amazing! It's not dead!
That is a beautiful machine.
I just got 1.6 today and here's a update. :D
> its not dead
OH MY GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOD
RTB mod NEEDS THIS
would be cool if both dev teams loosely collaborated together on both their projects ... would certainly speed up development.
We tried collaborating with other mods before, it does not work out. Our vision and methods are too different.
Had you ever considered collaborating with the Opposing Force 2 team? They're bringing back many cut concepts. I'd love to see some assets shared between both mods, you don't have to strictly follow the same storyline.
Doesn't look terribly different from the retail helicopter, besides the rotor, main gun, and a few peripherals. I thought no one would actually use this version of the helicopter, though it is quite nice to see it actually made. Great job, keep it up guys!
BTW, I really love this version of the main gun)) three barrels justify the rate of fire. Also it's more detailed than the vanilla one. Installing it on the standard helicopter would be great ;)
I'm not even sure things like this are called helicopters anymore (I think there is a separate name for it...).
I heard the Combine chopper was huge and heavy in the concept,maybe you can put a soldier near the chopper to compare
It's the same size as the retail one.
Holy **** am I in an alternate dimension? o.o
Woah, i thought this mod died after 1.6
