The Maelstrom is a rhino class vessel and like all other Free State Alliance planes, co-opted from civilian use. Formerly used by the Independent State of Swift in its mail cargo fleet to run packets and parcels from island state to island state. Modified to deliver bombs to drone factories, air strips and launch pads. The heavy guns on this craft are for taking down the Empire’s flying fortresses. The added armour has done nothing for speed but makes these craft sturdy.
Flying in squadrons following the reconnaissance planes, these heavy hitters never leave a target standing.
This MOC was built after more experimentation with parts. Somewhat styled after Lancaster Bombers and other planes of that ilk. I used the dark blue purely because I like the colour and my large Agents collection supplied a lot of useful parts.
