Lift Ticket

Growing up, Lift ticket didn't know if he wanted to join the Navy or the Army. Both had the helicopter he wanted to fly as they were both from the same helicopter platform, the Sikorsky UH-60. He ended up going with the Army as they gave him a better deal for flight pay and more flexibility with what he wanted to do. He ended up getting his private pilots license and began flying the UH-60 for the Army. He then got tapped to fly the UH-60 for the 160th SOAR, the Nightstalkers. He ended flying with the Nightstalkers until after the battle of Mogadishu. Afterwards Lift ticket went to retire to fly passenger planes for Delta, before he could finish the application he was contacted by General Hawk to fly the new SH-60 helicopter the joe team just received. He also got additional training under every fixed wing plane the Joes had which included the F-15, F-14, F-4 phantom, FA-18 and the C-130. Lift ticket couldn't be happier with the way his life had played out.

He is a qualified expert in DMRs, shotguns and pistols. He carries an old family heirloom, an old Luger p08. On most missions he carries a Spas 12 and a modified SKS. He knows wing Chun, lewthei, BJJ, Judo and Karate. He holds a black belt in Karate, Judo and Lewthei and a purple belt in BJJ. He can also use a flare gun for an extremely effective grenade launcher. He is also CAS (Close Air Support) qualified as a JTAC.

So Lift Ticket is a favorite of mine. I was debating on giving him Naval Aviation or Army Aviation because they both us the UH-60 platform bit I ended up going with Army to keep in line with the original character. I also made sure lift ticket was on the rivine op team the Joes have, which is similar to the US Navy's RIVERON team, as he is their forward air controller when he isn't flying for the Joes. But overall I'm happy with the way he turned out, as it turns out I drew the drawing first when I wanted to update lift ticket to not just be a pilot but also an infantryman. In the drawing you can see all the weapons he would use that I don't currently have at the moment to go with him. It was a lot of fun to update an existing character through drawing and then finding the parts for it, like a scavenger hunt. I don't know I might go back and rewrite him to be Navy to switch things up, but if I did that he wouldn't be apart of the 160th SOAR so I think I'll keep it at Army pilot, the closet thing the navy has is HSC-85, which is a seal aviation unit. Also I might go back and switch his head out with Wildcard to have a unhelmeted head and then probably just add a Marauder inc, flight helmet. Then after spending a lot of time with the Joes, he would retire to be a commercial pilot after he's put on reserve with the Joes. For his reserve retirement he would be flying the PC-12 for private tours.
