GSX-K05R Grifone II
The Grifone II is a new-generation aerial suppression and security AF designed as a successor to the Stratus.
About this creation

After the development of the Varanus and Corsaire, Gestalt R&D had still failed to replace the aging Stratus. The Grifone was touted as a solid example of an aerial attacker, but was considered to be a logistical risk for its high production cost. The Grifone II combines the development philosophies of its predecessors to provide an airborne AF for the next generation.


Like the original Grifone, the Grifone II has an articulated jet engine system that allows for thrust vectoring. Unlike the first model's thrust bodies, however, the new jet fuselages do not also contain particle acceleration cannons.


To offset the reduce amount of beam weapons, the Grifone has a specialized beam rifle that is unique to its line as well as a brand new slug-firing gatling gun. While the concept of the gatling gun is somewhat outdated, its stopping power and rounds-per-minute are not to be taken lightly even if the enemy is fielding beam weaponry.


Here we have a comparison of the Grifone II with the two AFs that inspired its design and function.
