Like the mythical birds fought by Herakles, the Stymphalion gunship and bomber is death from the skies.
Agile with both Boreas turbo ramjets for rapid changes of direction and unequalled atmospheric manoeuvrability and twin Hellion EDX-3 fusion engines for speed and brute strength, it is heavily armoured but with enough power to compensate.
It is also very heavily armed. It has twin Uranos ion eradicators on its turtle-shelled back, under slung axial Scythia-2 kinetic cannons, a pair of Chimaera fusion carbines under each wing, and the new Telemachus laser cannon on each wingtip. It also carries a cargo of Prometheus fusion bombs in the hold, ready to gift Greek Fire to its enemies.
Stymphalion pilots tend to be - to quote their colleagues - evil bastards who love watching things burn. They revel in their near-invulnerability and unparalleled ability to cause chaos below them.
