18th Deep's Foreign Legion Profiles: The A-11 Razorback; a CAS/Interceptor
Based off specifications issued by the UNE for a strike aircraft for Close Air Support (CAS) and anti-mech roles, the 18th Deep puzzled over the design, eager to prove themselves in the new alliance. Arising from the metal forges of Tiber comes this neat, compact aircraft that surpassed expectations on both parties. It was a whole 25% smaller than the smallest aircraft in service with the UNE, yet it was so much more versatile. Impervious to many AA weapons of traditional UNE enemies (due to the impressive skill of the works of Tiber), battlefield casualties remain amazingly light, by a huge margin over its contemporaries. Lighter and more agile than many enemy interceptors, the A-11B Mercenary was developed as a light interceptor. Because these two varients look identical in every aspect but weaponry, total surprise is achieved when a formation of fighters attack what is thought to be a defenseless formation of Razorbacks to find it bristling with interceptors.

Notable actions:
Operation Switchback;
The RAAF (Royal Australian Air Force) had been pounding strategic targets for weeks almost exclusively with Razorbacks. Mercenary interceptors of course escorted them, but they were a full minute's flight ahead, per protocol. It did not take long for the enemy to realize that for a full two minutes, the Razorbacks were vulnerable to fighters until the escort showed up. Three times the Razorbacks were caught unprotected and suffered heavily for it. Before they went up the fourth time, Col. Reginald ordered the two formations to switch order, with the Razorbacks leading followed by the Mercenaries. The trick worked completely due to the identical look of the two formations. When the enemy fighters popped up to attack, they found themselves tangling with heavily armed interceptors. Overcome by surprise, the enemy suffered many losses before making a break. After that, fighter attacks became less frequent until they stopped altogether.



Airbrake engaged. I actually built that and then realized what it could be used for.

The engine exhaust port is fully articulated, allowing for maximum maneuverability and agility (similar principle with the F-22).





The Razorback is actually a VTOL. Handled properly, it can take off at a very steep angle. It is, however, incapable of hovering.



Using the latest 'Fire-and-forget' missiles, almost any aircraft can be taken down.

I see you like the downswept wings. A favorite trait of mine. This is a fantastic build, and a pretty sleek looking fighter. I also agree that your set up is especially well made.

Quoting DarkKnigt88 U.N.E. Tech Commander Nice fighter, I really liked all the details. That is exactly how any military moc should be posted, even mine don't meet up to your standards, in the future I'll keep that in mind. I liked the way you built the air brake before realizing it could be used for the air brake. I also like the thrust vectoring, a great addition to any multirole fighter. I also like the main picture where its flying away from a straffing run and having destroyed a vehicle. Great fighter.
Wow, thanks!
