The Night Hawks have become a chapter adept at protracted hit and run warfare. Although much of their motor pool has been altered from fragile aircraft to more robust ground vehicles over the millennia, the Storm Talon gunship has continued to be an essential part of a Night Hawk Strike Force. In a chapter with almost no battle tanks save for the rarest of relics, the storm talon gunship fills a pivitol role. True to their nature and allegiances with the Adeptus Mechanicus, the Night Hawks have begun trials on a variant of the Storm Talon more suited for their preferred theatre of combat. The elongated wingspan provides increased lift at the expense of low speed maneuverability. This design has allowed the engines to function more efficiently at speed resulting in a reduced fuel demand while maintaining VTOL capability. The combined reduction in space requirements and weight of the craft permitted the streamlining of the weapon mounts which further increased lift and reinforced the boons of the initial redesign.
