Known more readily as just “Hawk”, the Sparrowhawk is a formidable air to ground armor busting support aerodyne. The Hawk first saw actual combat against the Covenant on the surface of Harvest in the final months of that campaign.

The Sparrowhawk is a United Civil Defense Force VTOL aerial support aerodyne that appeared in
2430.

History:

The Hawk is a formidable air-to-ground anti-tank aerodyne. It is used by the UCDF in a ground support and anti-armor role to hunt tanks and support advances. Developed during the early years of the Human-Covenant War, it first saw action on Harvest during the end months of the Harvest Campaign.



Appearance

The Hawk has design elements from a mixture of modern VTOL aircraft, most prominently the Harrier Jump-Jet, and attack helicopter gunships such as the AH-64 Apache and the AH-1 Cobra.The cockpit is forward mounted, and the tail section juts out from behind the fuselage at a downward angle. Each wing incorporates a Ducted Air Fan for lift and thrust, and carries three missiles/rockets on pylons and a twin auto-cannon on each, with a Laser weapon mounted underneath the cockpit.

Performance:

"Hawk, ready to fly!"
—Anonymous Hawk Pilot

The Hawk is a fast and maneuverable aircraft, much more so than the AV-14 Attack VTOL that it is an upgrade of and therefore replaces. Rather than thrust-vectoring jet thrusters, like most UCDF aircraft, the Hawk makes use of ducted fans in the wings to provide lift and thrust, and is equipped with wing-mounted GUA-23/AW/Linkless Feed Autocannons as well as a nose-mounted Weapon/Anti-Vehicle Model 6 Grindell/Galilean Nonlinear Rifle, allowing it to engage enemy infantry, vehicles and aircraft, making for an aircraft of extreme tactical versatility.
Too cool for you.

well our largest is the DS-450A its a converted cargo plane it can have 10 15MM miniguns or up to 4 heavy cannons

another is the DS-320A which is a converted duel rotor helicopter with a similar armorment

and the one with the highest manuverability is the DS-180A it uses anti gravity systems to modify its load and inertia stablizers to better contol its direction its main prepulsion is a twin ion engine which is fully sustainable for long trips its top altitude is outer space and its top speed is mach 15, as for weapons 4 30mm autocannons and a classified missle system you dont want to be on the wrong end of ;)

Light attack helicopter-74 Lioness attack helicopter

The lioness attack helicopter is one of the cheaper models of the Bear attack helicopter, but is still used as a mobile helicopter for infantry on the move. It came into service in 1974 when our rivals were starting to produce a large number of tanks. It was originally equipped to hunt down tanks and destroy them.

Crew-1
Weapons- 4 hellfire rocket pods, and a 40mm automatic cannon
Max speed- 350 miles per hour
Amour-60mm on fuel tanks and around cockpit.
Number made- 2,000 both military and paramilitary

Medium attack helicopter- 87 Firefly attack helicopter
The firefly attack helicopter is one of the lest used attack helicopters in our army at the moment. This was our main anti ship, air and ground helicopter till 2002 when its bigger brother was introduce to the army. The firefly saw action in South Cammer when we invaded to protect our peace at mind. It was used as a transport helicopter and attack helicopter later in the war.

Crew-3
Weapons- 2 sparrow anti ship missiles, 2 .50 door mounted machine guns , 6 ANZA anti tank missiles in two pods, 40 mm auto cannon
Transport cap- 12 soldiers
Amour- classified
Mass speed-360 miles per hour
Number made-800
Heavy attack helicopter- 94 Bear model 4 attack helicopter AKA Stalker

The Bear attack helicopter came into service when our armed forces were able to take down enemy tanks easier, and when producing the firefly became too much for a cheap helicopter. The Bear is one of the most heavily armored and armed helicopters to date in bonnafulian history. The bear has seen serve in anti terrorism campaign and intervention in civil wars. It is currently being used by all branches till the newer model comes out.
Crew 2
Weapons 60mm cannon, 6 hellfire missile pods, 4 fire and forget missile pods and 2 Zebra missiles (anti infantry.)

Our reconnaissance gunship is the RAH-66 Comanche. We use it to accurately guide swarms of AH-64D (or AH-1 Apaches, depending on the unit) Apache gunship.

Our law enforcement agencies (save for the Federal Guard, who have access to AH-64s) use the AH-1Z Viper.

Oh, then there's the AC-130.

Commonly Patroling the wastelands in New Robotalica, they are decently fast, having 2 rapid-fire-gatling-lasers, and one Plasma burster, they can be used for border patrol aswell. The ammo feed is kept next to the core. if its shot down, it will Explode completly. This method will make reverse-engineering nearly impossible. They are controlled by AI, making "Shoting the Pilot" technique Impossible. They can go on for 2 years without a recharge, thanks to the circulative power core that will die down much slower than common ones.
