The Falcon is light ground attack craft, designed for close air support missions. Built around the Raven dropship chassis, the Falcon is able to loiter over the combat zone, presenting a constant threat to enemy ground units. It shares considerable commonality with the Raven, reducing construction costs and simplifying maintenance. The Falcon is just as fast and manoeuvrable as the Raven, although it is also lightly armoured. This makes it best employed against unfortunate, defenceless ground targets. The Falcon is armed with a pair of devastating UM-28 ‰Û÷Vindicator‰۪ Gatling cannons. These have been calibrated for focused, converging fire. The sheer volume of lead these shell-hoses can send downrange is capable of shredding a main battle tank in seconds.
