Rebuilt from the ground up to be bigger, faster, stronger, and more agile. Somehow we also lost 3 whole tonnes.
Designed to take heavy damage and give out much more, the ‘Blitzen’ is ideal for flying low over a field and coming out full of holes, and landing at a runway after. Just don’t expect to be going fast at all, armour comes at a heavy price.

An A-30D dropping its full bomb payload
This A-30 sustained massive damage, resulting in the loss of half a tail, engine #1, and the FLIR pod. Pilot Glewise Kerman was noted as saying
she flew like nothing was wrong.
After landing wheels up and colliding with a fuel depot, this A-30D suffered non-critical damage to the airframe. Landing gear was found to be fully functional. Pilot Bill Kerman could not be reached to comment.
I don’t need no rocket science.
