Post-Apoc Close Air Support (CAS). Captain Adrian Powers was in the Air Force before the world hit the fan. But that was three years ago, and he had valuable experience to offer the New Republic, in the way of air power. Building this aircraft from scratch, he surprised even himself at how well it worked. Through use of air support, the Republic was able to destroy even the most powerful enemy and win the day.
About this creation
Captain Powers returning from a raid. Note the radio antenna on the upper right wing.
The Skyraider, so named after the USAF tactical bomber a few years ago, is armed with a heavy minigun under the fuselage and two cannons beside the engine.
Cockpit view showing the rudimentary heads-up display (HUD) located on the upper wing above the cockpit. The HUD contains a compass, airspeed and direction indicators; nothing as good as the GPS, radar, and infared targeting system he was used to, but it'd have to do.
