AG-33 Revenant by CrimsonFALKE AG-33 Revenant by CrimsonFALKE
Ryan Aerospace Industries, used several untested technologies with tried and true weapons to create its living ghost. The AG-33 uses a unique thrust vectoring system combined with twin gravity wells to act as the main method of lift. This system allows for a large sum off ammunition and advanced systems of radar and Lidar without needing to have a high output reactor similar to dropships and exo/endo-atmospheric fighters. Revenants serve as a combination of F/A-18s and AH64. The Revenant serves the EFMC and IMSF as a support gunship and air superiority fighter. The gunship can turn on a dime as fast as a 21st century gunship can turn its turret to bring the 4 barreled 30mm rotatory cannon on a target. All AG-33s can mount an advanced tracking module capable of increasing its air to ground attack range and with its multiple hard points mounted on the wings and canards can allow for a wide range of missiles and rockets besides using the internal storage rack. Ryan Aerospace's entry into support craft is one of the more lethal weapons an MEU strike force can deploy. The Revenant is superior is maneuverability, acceleration and maximum speed to the Serkin Specter, and many crews of Revenants have a hard time figuring out if they are CAS pilots of fighter pilots. Federal Military Forces as elite as the Interstellar Marine Strike Force to the Planetary Defense Force usually cross train pilots between fighters and the AG-33 Revenants. While all Revenants come with "Electric ink" active camouflage it is rarely beyond level 2, giving the flight crews an easy time in not having to ground a gunship for paint jobs every time a different combat situations arise. To conserve space on frigates and destroyers the Revenant features compact but durable landing gear, and folding tail sections.

From the description, the AG-33 is not an aerospace superiority fighter, but a ground attack aircraft that can be used to attack enemy ground attack aircraft, achieving localized air superiority. The fact it's not designed to function in space, means it can't be used to achieve true aerospace superiority.

Any fight between this and a true aerospace superiority fighter, will be like a fight between an F-15 Eagle and an A-10 Thunderbolt II. The AG-33's superior maneuverability and energy maneuverability (acceleration and deceleration) will let it slaughter any aerospace fighter that gets too close, but the aerospace fighter's superior top speed will allow it to engage and disengage at will. The aerospace fighter is also likely to have superior radar, which means it can use longer-range missiles. (The aerospace fighter pilot is unlikely to care if the radar is so big, it blocks the forward view. His windshield has to survive atmospheric reentry, and it must not melt during hypersonic flight- the aerospace fighter must be able to reach escape velocity, after all- that means it's unlikely to form part of a bubble canopy, and the pilot's field-of-view will be crap, with or without the big radar.)

To use the AG-33 successfully, your forces must deploy them with the TAF-68, so their own aerospace superiority fighters can counter the enemy's. Your pilots should be trained accordingly; the TAF-68 must not squander its superior speed by getting into dogfights with enemy ground attack aircraft, but should use its longer-range weapons like a sniper; and the AG-33 should not attack enemy aerospace fighters, unless the enemy pilot is incompetent enough to follow the AG-33 into the atmosphere, and get into a dogfight, which will squander the aerospace fighter's superior speed and longer-range weapons.

Yes that is very true, although these units also fly support of much larger ships that are also providing CAS, like the Warrior or Hue class Frigates

looks like a helicopter with no rotors.

Hahaha, i imagined you saying that unenthusiastically.  It really is a practical design, after reading the description, it would make for a great combat support vehicle.  Actually with the rotors out of the picture, it would make the thing safer, wouldn't have to worry about a tree or building as much as normal, the rotors of a heli, if they just tapped a building, could be catastrophic.

You got that right but honestly comments are better than no comments. Well yeah its much safer than helicopter although the draw backs of the design is the lack of a turreted cannon.

What do you mean, you could mount a turret cannon on it, can you?

you can but that the pilot would have a much harder time flying and it would have to be reduced to 20mm and that doesn't really have the rate of fire or power to do much to alien armor.
