About this creation
MQ-30 Raven Specs:
Top Speed: Mach 1.1
Weight: 2.4 Tons
Armor: Composite of Carbon Aluminum, Titanium, and carbon fiber
Primary Armament: 10x hard points (shown here with 4x Aim-11 viper AMRAMs, 4x GKL-40 AT rockets, and 2x quad M51 20mm chaingun pods)
Secondary Armament: optional nose mounted GAU-21 15mm minigun (not shown)
Power Plant: 4x FT-196 scramjet engines (2x rotating base)
Combat Range: 10,700 miles
Crew: 1 remote pilot


The heavily armed MQ-30 represented a quantum leap for drones from primarily recon platforms, to dedicated close air support aircraft.


The MQ-30's low profile makes it hard to spot for enemy fighter pilots and is perfectly capable of engaging them with up to 10 AMRAMs.


The flying wing design and RAM give the MQ-30 limited stealth capability, allowing it to slip through some radar systems


Actually able to fly backwards due to its reversible engines, the MQ-30 can stop at top speed in a mere 3.5 miles


4th wall: The wings are actually the J-32s wings just modified a bit and reversed, I liked the shape so I reused them.


The reverse sweep of the wings make the MQ-30 very maneuverable and a highly capable dogfighter.


On each wing tip there is a small rotating radar beam, giving the operator a perfect view of everything with in 10 miles of the MQ-30 even under less than ideal conditions.


Spinny engines!


All the possible weapons: Red and white are the GKL-40 AT rockets, green and gold are ASM-14 harpoon anti-ship missiles, white and blue are the 4x Aim-11 viper AMRAMs, the quad M51 20mm chaingun pods are obvious, the green and tan are HOG-4 bunker busters, and the thing in the middle is the GAU-21 15mm minigun, (you lose one camera if this is mounted).


These are how the missiles look loaded and fired in case you're curious.

EDIT: Sorry, the uploader messed up the order of the pictures, should be easy enough to figure it out though
