AR-15 Drone Air Superiority Fighter Turbine
With the emergence of converted machinery adapted for warfare upon the battlefield, commanders on both sides knew it would be only a matter of time before the first aerial assets followed suit. The very first of such assets was the AR-15 Drone. A two seater turbine whose original function was that of aerial survey and airborne load transferral in the construction zones. Stripped of superfluous industrial load out and sensory equipment the Drone became lighter and subsequently faster. Internal Sensory computers were relocated to the pilots cockpit as an addition to his function and with the introduction of a tail gunner a VM-5 Blitzer cannon mounted in the rear cockpit area seemed only fitting.
Turbines have experienced a rise in popularity with field commanders, their role becoming exponentially more vital as pre-Kontagion planetary defense weapons and anti-aerial batteries get gradually knocked out of commission freeing up the ability to manoeuvre and function in airspace with reduced threat of being shot down.
Drones often carry one of numerous load outs of under-slung wing mounted weapons systems. Grudge missiles, Crackbombs and additional Blitzers are all common sight.
This is a pic of our pre-production model, it is a multi part resin and white metal kit.
Merry Christmas everybody!
