The V-44's cargo bay can transport up to eight infantry units or two to three vehicles (depending on the size of the vehicles); it can also function as a limited gunship against enemy infantry, being equipped with nose-mounted twin Gatling machine-guns.
Although fast and has moderate resistance to enemy fire, it is still advised for it to stay clear from Anti-Air vehicles whenever possible.
A stealth upgrade is available for the V-44, making the aircraft invisible until opening fire, loading/unloading, or being detected by an enemy recon unit.
All V-44s will have stealth capability except when firing or loading/unloading units.
- The V-44 appears to be inspired by concept art of the Bell Boeing Quad TiltRotor.
