Been thinking of total lift for the vehicle and Id rather have more then needed then not enough. After studying some of the photos I have of the movie versions of the HK heavy, there is a large area on the back spine of the craft that has a lot of louvers. This area is highlighted in red in the pic below.

This looks like a perfect place to hide a forth decent size fan unit. It wont be the same size as the 5 gal home depot buckets, but still a lot bigger then a 90 or 120mm ducted fan.

I was able to source a smaller bucket from work that is probably a 2.5 gal bucket. I can fit a 9" diameter prop in it so thats what Im planning on doing.
Might as well design the ship to have it from the start then mod it in afterwards
