The coalition's inner atmosphere support craft. the Kestrel has roles in both combat and transit. Though mostly serving as an Ariel combat platform providing fire support to advancing infantry and armored units.
About this creation
The Kestrel sports dual magnetic cannons as well as a pair of gunner operated miniguns. Equipt with a nose mounted laser scanner and rangefinder the kestrel can pinpoint units through often dense urban terrain.
Another unique feature of the Kestrel is its tail engine, which can rotate this allows for thrust to be supplemented to the pair of forward engines. This setup allows for greater speed and mobility than the average VTOL can achieve.
crewed with both a pilot and gunner the kestrel excels at tank hunting proving especially effective in the dense urban terrain as mentioned above.

Quoting Awesome-o-saurus The Not-So-Great
Impressive. Wish I could build things like this, but a small selection of grey often inhibits me. Also, are those colors on the tail designation squadron or something?
