The EAGLE Strike-class Bomber is the primary bomber plane of UNION Weapons & Tech. The jet is a VTOL. The twin jump jets underneath are able to ascend the bomber in tight places with ease. The EAGLE can reach max speeds up to mach 3. This bomber carries two JDAMs (Joint Direct Attack Munition) or "Gravity Bombs", two joint-strike "Hellfire" anti-aircraft missiles, and a light mounted machine gun. The craft is intended mostly for bombing-runs, but can adapt to any situation in the skies. [END TRANSMISSION]
It took many tries, but I think I finally ended up with a decent LEGO plane/fighter. Feel free to leave a comment below. Tell me what you liked, or what you think needs work :) (Created: 4/5/10)
