GH-34R "Wasp" Infantry Gunship

Manufactured by Integrated Weaponry Inc, and sharing a similar design and frame with the fabled GH-23 "Cricket", the Gaerlan-Heinz 34 "Wasp" was another deadly VTOL in the Corps' arsenal. The Wasp had heavier armor and was slower than the GH-23 yet carried a formidable loadout amd was often included in Marine land assaults. Whereas GH-23 Crickets would ferry Marines to the battlefront, Wasps stayed with the fighting force as vital air support. In addition, they could also provide support as CASEVAC (casualty evacuation).

 

 

(...apologies for the poor photography and lighting, this was just something I threw together as my girlfriend was napping this afternoon and I just wanted to get it photgraphed ...)
