P-23 Skywolf

Sky pirate Grant "Mad Dog" Hendricks piloting his P-23 Skywolf. A member of the feared Crossbones Gang they terrorised air shipping, stealing cargo and holding passengers for ransom until Hendricks was finally shot down by flying ace Betty Redwing with a lucky shot to the nose! The rest of the gang were rounded up and imprisoned except for "Ratface" Watkins who escaped and was never found. The plane was originally developed for the Kovlakian Air Force and carried six "Hades" shrapnel missiles but after several incidents of its missiles misfiring and blowing up the plane, they were quietly scrapped. A few found their way onto the black market where they were snapped up by sky pirates for whom their safety record wasn't a problem...
