Little is known about these new starfighters, even within the ranks of the Britannian military. Prototypes were first spotted on test flights around remote military bases at about the same time that Admiral Blackdog returned from the T.L.A. homeworld of Refuge, where he had been stranded since the end of the Britannian invasion attempt. Official documents are heavily censored, but do reveal that the fighter is known as the Typhoon.
Visual inspection suggests several similarities between the Typhoon and T.L.A. fighters. The sleek, blended wing/body aerodynamics are a major departure from standard Britannian design, but a common feature among T.L.A. aircraft; likewise the engines and windowless virtual-reality cockpit appear similar to those found on T.L.A. fighters such as the F.L.A.S.H.. Rumors are that Admiral Blackdog managed to steal a tremendous amount of T.L.A. design data during his escape.
The Typhoon's armament is somewhat more conventional, similar to that found on the Spitfire light fighter; it carries a set of six light machine guns that are highly accurate and destructive at short range, but lack any sort of armor-piercing capability. Some aircraft have also been observed with a rocket pod mounted on top of the fuselage.
In addition to its extremely powerful main engines, the Typhoon is equipped with two secondary wingtip thrusters for extra speed and agility.
No one knows exactly where this fighter originated, but if it represents the future of Britannian technology, then the Queen's armies are about to become more formidable than ever.
Just one random act of violence can brighten your day. Especially if it involves explosives.
