The Starlifter transport was a quad tiltrotor aircraft that was cut from the final release of Generals.

Background[edit | edit source]

As the USA's primary heavy-lift transport helicopter, the Starlifter would essentially performed the same functions as the current Chinook, although it would have been capable of transporting more vehicles and infantry at a time due to its larger fuselage.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The real-life C-141 Starlifter is a fixed-wing cargo plane.
  • The Starlifter's design was likely based on the Bell Boeing Quad Tiltrotor, a conceptual aircraft concept proposed to the US military.
  • The V-120 Valkyrie from Tom Clancy's EndWar as well as the V-44 from Eugen System's Act of War: Direct Action strongly resembles the Starlifter, both air units capable of not only transporting vehicles and infantry but is also air units.
  • Non-canon fan modifications such as ShockWave and Rise of The Reds restore the Starlifter to its intended role.
