CONCEPT:In the 22nd century, the Earth is divided into six sectors, with only one governing organ of law enforcement, an organization known as MAYA.
In order to be able to preserve order by controlling outbreaks of crime and violence across the entire Earth and its surrounding inhabited satellites (commonly referred to as the Earth complex), MAYA uses self-designed pilot-less aircrafts imbued with precision and speed previously unattainable for human-operated vehicles.
About this creation
XK-2 is the second aircraft in MAYA's XK series.
Its ability to alternate its shape and adjust to the situation is XK-2's strongest point.
Aero mode, in which the wings and the body are in the same horizontal line. First three pictures show how wings, onto which the dual particle cannons are attached, can spread to the sides with the help of Exo Force joints.

Communication relay, which all MAYA aircrafts use for receiving command transmissions from the base:
To demonstrate the second, Combat mode, I used a simple 3-axle stand:
Fighter mode, in which the cannons are positioned in a different angle from the body. Numerous pose variations can be achieved here, due to the flexibility of the stand and the wing joints. The idea here is somewhat inspired by the Star Wars Boba Fett's slave aircraft.
Thanks for taking a look, please rate and comment :) I am much more motivated to continue building if I know some of you like what I do.
