KA-2A Avenger

11.3k LiamW  4.9 years ago

The Avenger is a 2020s-era close-air-support platform optimised for transonic flight. Even with full armor and payload, this surprisingly small aircraft can still reach supersonic speeds in short bursts.
The forward-swept wing and canard configuration allow for extreme maneuverability and excellent slow-speed handling.
Twin 25mm cannons that unleash 130 rounds per second between them are capable of obliterating the toughest of tanks with disturbing ease.

Specifications

Range: Medium-ish
Top Speed: probably a bit over mach 1
Stall Speed: Rather low

AG Armament:
2x compact boom 50
8x Brimstone AG missiles
2x 25mm Gau-8 derivative

AA Armament:

Also, it can land and launch off carriers with the aid arresting hooks and catapults because why not

    Well here's my CAS challenge entry. The successor system broke because I uploaded an unlisted version first. I tried and failed to fix it @mikoyanster
