History

The Valkyrie Gunship is a squad support platform capable of carrying a dozen troops and provide fire support for them. it is related to the Cobra Dropship and fills a similar role. The differences between the two are mostly in the increased fire power carried by the Valkyrie and reduced cargo space compared to the Cobra. The Valkyrie can just barely carry a full dozen soldiers in armor and certainly cannot carry vehicles.

The Valkyrie carries 2 railgun turrets near the nose, 2 underbelly rapid fire conventional cannon turrets, and 8 underwing pylons. The pylons can carry either a single heavy missile, a trio of standard missiles, or a pack with a dozen small missiles. It uses four rotating engines to give it enhanced combat maneuverability.
