Jud's R-Wing is a reconditioned military fighter, which he found at an auction for dirt cheap. It could barely start when he found it, but now purrs like a kitten. The military called it a Rotary-Integrated Tactical Assault vehicle. Jud just calls her RITA, for short. During her hey day Rita was used to drop in and provide cover fire for troops. She has three powerful dual laser cannons on each rotor, as well as two heavy guns above the cockpit. Now, Jud uses her when he thinks he might be in a situation where he needs to make a quick get a way, and have the fire power to back it up with.
The rotors move by an internal motor and battery pack. Watch the video on flickr as she takes off!
Good Luck Si-Mocs and the other builders, can't wait to see the ships.
