Tilt-wing aircraft are fixed-wing aircraft that can alter the incidence of their wings and perform vertical take-offs and landings. These craft have traveling ranges comparable to traditional fixed-wing aircraft, yet they can hover and make vertical landings like helicopters.

Vector Thrust Craft

Thunderbirds

Type Cost Availability Similar Models Advantages
Aztechnology Lobo Medium Scout LAV 4 Controlled McDonnell-Douglas Precursor LAV heavily armored, well-armed, advanced electronics, intimidating
This low altitude vehicle functions as a scout, but it's more than capable of taking care of itself. The heavily armored, well-armed craft has taken out or evaded craft well out of its class. The Lobo made its debut in the UCAS, and models were purchased by several corps and paramilitary organizations within a few years.
GMC Banshee 4 Controlled Ares Firebird, McDonnell-Douglas Interceptor high-speed, maneuverable, sensor equipment, reliable
The Banshee is a light thunderbird, designed and used as a reconnaissance and courier vehicle. Despite early fuel injection problems, the line was well-received by the industrial and military industries. The Banshee can outrun everything in the sky short of a tactical fighter.
GMC "Harpy Scout" LAV 4 Controlled Ares DR-270, USS Caravan-Class maneuverable, long-range sensors, advanced electronics, repairable
The Harpy Scout is somewhat misnamed as a "scout." It can certainly fulfill that role but is more often used for security patrol or deployed when unauthorized aircraft enter claimed airspace or "no-fly" zones. The Harpy is particularly popular in South America, where older aircraft tend to be the status quo and the newer Harpy has a sizeable advantage.

Also known as low-altitude vehicles (LAVs) or "t-birds," thunderbirds have no wings and rely entirely on jet propulsion to provide life and thrust. Without adequate power, t-birds become flying (or more precisely falling) bricks. Consequently, thunderbirds generally have short ranges and tremendous fuel requirements. In most militaries, thunderbirds are used for short-range close air support, as well as armor support in terrain not suited to tank maneuvers.

Jump-Jet Fighters

Type Cost Availability Similar Models Advantages
Federated-Boeing Eagle 5 - Sikorsky-Bell Rapier military jump jet
Designed to play many roles, the Fed-Boeing Eagle is generally classified as a VTOL mid-range tactical fighter/bomber. The jet has enough speed and precision to tangle with most high-performance fighters, while retaining the carrying capacity for a respectable bomb payload. Currently, the UCAS has the largest number of Eagles in their arsenal.

Jump-jet fighters are similar to standard fixed-wing jet fighters, but have additional vertical vents for vertical landings and takeoffs and hovering
