(UPDATE: Fixed a perspective issue with the tail and middle wings)
Issue 2 of Telikos Protocol is on it's way soon and it shows a lot more of the military hardware developed by E.D.G.E. This is the Hammerhead VTOL Gunship, a very nasty and very well armed piece of kit, it has many variants each one becoming progressively more nuts regarding it's load out.
The craft itself is rather large and is able to carry not just masses of weaponry but also masses of troops and other hardware. The large wings are fixed but have large slats running along them halfway down, these are vector thrust vents that allow fast moving air to be shot out of them which is produced by that massive dorsal jet engine which also produces it's forward thrust, basically it's very similar to how the Harrier Jump Jet works, only much fatter.
