I figured it was high time I uploaded a proper GEM moc. So here is the Firebird, a favorite design of mine.
About this creation
The Close Air Support mk. 9, featuring vertical take of and landing, was designed to provide heavy fire support to ground troops, even in difficult fly conditions and areas, such as an urban battlefield. Do to its powerful twin missile launchers, often equiped with napalm, it was nicknamed the Firebird.






This picture shows the mechanism that gives the engines a full 360 degree spin. They are currently angled to slow the craft while moving into position.


"The missile launchers are on the side covered by the grey smooth pieces, with over 80 missiles stored inside the craft.

That pilot is enjoying a very good view of the battlefield! Looks like this puppy could chew up some serious armor! Great job.
