Auto Credit Based on FireDrake's AV-49 Wasp (teaser version)

A relatively new installment to the UNSC's arsenal, the AV-49 is a CAS VTOL craft designed to replace the Hornet and some remaining Sparrow-hawks.

The craft features 2 gimbal mounted turbines equipped with afterburners, and a central turbine that exhausts through two vectored nozzles on the aft end of the craft.


It was designed to be produced in large numbers, so the armoring is very limited to curb costs and weight.

    @Potkuri VTOL up to control altitude (between the second and third notch) and you should be lifting off the ground if not, I’ll look into it.

    Edit - Sorry for the confusion! I forgot to initially put controls in the description. It does fly, I just didn’t go the traditional route.
