Alternate name: snotwing. This fighter/bomber is cool.
About this creation
For this build, the main focus was on the snot technique used in the wings (S.N.O.T.= studs not on top, for those who don't know).
This is a conventional jet and so it requires a large intake to achieve supersonic speeds.
Here is a detail of the bottom, the Warhawk is equipped with two 30mm gatling guns. two autocannons, and can carry one large or two smaller bombs on a hard rack.
These are the rear landing skids.
It just so happened that they fit perfectly here when they are folded up.
This shot shows the few exposed studs on the Warhawk, they are up under the engine. This shot also distorts the wing length; it looks a lot better in real life.
Just a rear shot, showing how the relatively small elevators, immersed in the exhaust path, manage to control the craft.
The nose is a little messy, but I think it looks pretty cool any way.
That is an auxiliary fuel pod.
When it is empty, the pilot can jettison it.
The hard rack can also hold this bad boy. It can act as a booster and a bomb, and is capable of penetrating ten meters of concrete before exploding and annihilating anyone who is within a 180 meter radius.
Also, the Warhawk can hold both the fuel pods and the bomb.
Finally, a couple of comparison shots with the Stryker.
I am very pleased with the low number of exposed studs on the Warhawk. I suppose this is one of the bigger reasons to use snot in builds.

Clean piece of build, I like the way you made the rear section, well done.
Thank you! Oddly enough, when I first built the Warhawk, I thought that I liked it more than the Stryker. The Stryker has since grown on me and I am sad to say that I am going to take apart the Warhawk to assemble some new thing, preferably with REALLY big engines. Peace.

I really like those dark grey stripes on the winds. Well-done!
The sad fact of the matter is that I simply couldn't find any light grey 1x4 bricks. If I'd had the parts, I was planning to have the yellow stripe run across the wings, right where the stripe is. That said, I didn't have the heart to disassemble the Styker without more of an idea of how to put it back together, should the need arise.
