- —Kait Diaz and Delmont Walker, whilst being pursued by a Vulture
The Vulture was a large fixed wing, four-engine turboprop military aircraft employed by the Coalition of Ordered Governments in the post-Locust War era. Similar to the Condor, the Vulture was not only capable of deploying DeeBees from the air, but also functioned as a bomber and assault aircraft. It was armed with firebombs and a total of six machine gun turrets mounted on its wings. Its rear primary engines and wing-mounted secondary engines were vulnerable to small arms fire, and opening the cargo bay door would expose its vital engine core.
The Vulture was developed from the Condor transport aircraft some time after its introduction between 17 A.E. and 42 A.E. The only known instance of a Vulture being used in combat took place at the end of the Outsider Movement, when a team of Outsiders led by former sergeant Marcus Fenix was attacked by one of Vultures and managed to destroy it, following the assault on the Stroud Estate.
Behind the scenesEdit
- According to The Coalition weapon and vehicle artist Benjamin Day, "the Vulture is an old COG plane re-purposed by the new COG as a troop transport / bomber plane for DB balls and napalm canisters."
