History

The AH-21 Khamsin helicopter gunship has become the close air support unit of choice for most of Asia and is now on it’s ‘21B’ version. It was a joint project between China and India. While all traditional Aerodynes are hopelessly slow compared to Aerospace fighters, the Khamsin can have up to sixteen air-to-air high agility missiles just for such threats.

The main weapon of the Khamsin is a underbelly railgun turret. However most of it’s firepower comes from it’s six wing pylons. Each pylon can hold one of several sets of weapons: A rocket launcher box which can hold thirty six (36) rockets. A Missile launch box which can hold eight (8) standard missiles. A set of five (5) heavy guided bombs. Finally they can carry a single heavy missile.
