Valkyrie
Valkyrie VTOL Spacecraft
About this creation
The inspiration for the ship came from several sources. The Cobra attack helicopter and the A-10 "Warthog". The name comes from the music played in "Appocalypse Now" when the Air Cav attack the beach. The piece is "Flight of the Valkyrie", by Vagner.

   The ship has a reputation for dependablity and has seen service in several military and law enforcement "urban passification" roles

   The ship has limited range due to weight restrictions despite the massive thrust
provided by its power plants. Its is capable of atmospheric flight but its flight time is greatly reduced as power is diverted to maintain level flight.

   The ship has air-to-air and air-to-surface missles in the side missile pods and the missles can be
targeted by ground forces or by the gunner. The side pods also house two ion cannons which are mainly used to soften or disable enemy shields and
then the target is eliminated with the more "conventional" weaponry on board. The turret on the roof houses four blast cannons which are used to
cover and protect the ship as it breaks contact or returns to target.

   The cabin is desgined from a train window which lines up nicely with the 1x2 panels of the sides. It allows for a very clean look.

   The ship is basically a flying ammo can with very limited cargo or storage capabilities.

   The ships main weapon is the minigun in the nose. Capable of 10,000 rounds
a minute of depleted Legonium rounds.

   The Gunner above the pilot configuration allows for a greater field of vision for the gunner.

   The narrow profile makes for a very small target when approaching a target head on.
