The Northrop Grumman A-61b Peregrine is a single seat VTOL OrDASh (Vertical Takeoff/Landing Orbital Drop Attack Ship) designed for the USCMF in the year 2063. Deployed from orbital strike platforms or large space naval vessels, it was designed to drop in and neutralize anti air batteries for the larger dropships and assault forces to move in and execute objectives. It was soon realized that additional strike forces were not necessary as the Peregrine could perform these tasks on its own and is now used for ground strike operations and anti-mech duties. Primary armorment
consists of two 50mm high yield depleted uranium railguns that can angle down 30 degrees for higher accuracy, four Hedgehog 40mm air-to-ground rocket propelled grenade launch tubes just inboard of the engines, and a chin mounted Mjolnir 20mm caseless MG which can rotate back 160 degrees for aiming and to relieve stress on the barrel during drops.
An onboard AI system called GRETA (General RADAR Elimination and Targeting Assistant) monitors up to 200 radar signatures as well as airframe integrity, subsystem status, and weapons systems.
The A-61 is named for the fastest animal in the world, the Peregrine Falcon, which can reach speeds of 273mph in a dive. Its silhouette also slightly resembles a diving falcon with its wings tucked back.

Wow, this is the essence of cool :) What stands out to me most is the time you must have put into imagining out each detail and ability for the air-craft. The vehicle profile really rounds out its character and makes it extra unique. Good MOC!
Oh man!! this is just so right, the wings, the engines, the air intakes, the rear radar thingy... every single detail is just nicely done... I don't know but for some reason I love those holes at the rear... besides; the design of the wings is very unique! all in all, another great addition to your amazing pages! by the way the roof is turned out very nice, I changed the whole technique for it, thanks to you of course, any thing else need to be fix!? keep in touch buddy >>> peace.. Firas ;)
