I am back, everyone, with some new tricks up my sleeve, i've gotten some inter-mediate paneling skills which i showed off pretty well in this build, nothing sauce level but not bad none-the-less, also had to make some custom landing gear(which i think i could've done much better on).

The Sentinel, a ground support based drone, a predecessor to the Mk.II, and a test bed for various weapons, and hardware systems, was an infamous drone, being at the center of some conspiracy theories, who could be blamed, seeing as this is a storm jet made after the storm jet program "shut down" in 2039, its lack of a human controller added to this.
The jet was equipped with various weapons which were easy to switch out, making someone's death from this certain but unpredictable, nicknamed
"The messenger of the damned." or "Hell's Gatekeeper." by those on the buisness end of the gun, the only weapon that could not be changed.
The main weapon being a bjac.co 40mm "Scythe" Auto cannon, able to rip apart convoys in minutes alone. (Pictured below)
The development of the Sentinel was a rocky road road for sure, lasting for a short 6 years, starting in early 2039, ending in late 2045, the drone saw 9 long years of service after development. Serving in the bitter end of the Middle Eastern War, and in the South China Dispute.
Despite the storm jet Mk.III barely being able to hit mach 1, it had no issue evading SAM's, only 14 out of the 300 produced were shot out of the sky with SAM's, others were either disabled by EMPs, or slowly ripped apart by WWII-esc AA-gunners.
The Sentinel also saw use of over 1300 weapons in its weapon's hold, most were minute variations of each other, but still a very impressive number.
The sentinel was also used as a test-bed, which explains the ridiculous number of different weapons it has had in its bay, one of its more famous tests, or rather infamous tests was with a [REDACTED] which ended up with the Hackberry Incident.
The Hackberry Incident
In 2053 during a routine flight of the sentinel drone for test of a [REDACTED] in the Nevada Desert, the guidance system failed due to a faulty chip which caused the drone to crash 3km northwest of Hackberry, the crash was relatively silent but due to excess fuel left over in the drone, a tower of smoke grew above the wreckage, this prompted bjac.co to swiftly send out a search and recovery team, unfortunately to bjac.co's surprise there were many witnesses, some who got up close and started to take photos, these witnesses called the craft "of alien origin", this sparked some minor conspiracy theories, bjac.co ended up taking responsibility for the crash(which was called a cover-up by some), this soon hit the news causing the company to take a hit, the company struggled to find a contract the next year for failed compliance with heavily guarded info, not to mention the considerable reputation blast."
