Brimlock Dragoon's Tornado Mk X

The Brimlock Tornado is a Yaisdra Campaign-era Imperial Guard turbojet-engine fighter aircraft. Developed for the Brimlock Dragoon Air Corp, the Tornado had distinctive twin booms and a central nacelle containing the cockpit and armament. Clustering all the armament in the nose was unusual and new in Brimlock Aircraft, which typically used wing-mounted guns with trajectories set up to crisscross at one or more points in a convergence zone. Nose-mounted guns did not suffer from having their useful ranges limited by pattern convergence, meaning that good pilots could shoot much farther. A Tornado could reliably hit targets at any range up to 1,000 yd (910 m), whereas the wing guns of other fighters were optimized for a specific range. The Tornado was used for interception, dive bombing, level bombing, ground attack, night fighting, photo reconnaissance radar and visual path-finding for bombers and evacuation missions, and extensively as a long-range-escort fighter when equipped with drop tanks under its wings.
