Archaeopter[3]

The Archaeopter is an aircraft used by the Adeptus Mechanicus.[1]

Overview

A workhorse of the Mechanicum, the aircraft has been at the forefront of Tech-Priest expansion for millennia. The aircraft is an agile, fixed-wing aircraft. Piloted by a Pteraxii whose legs and scapuli superior are hardwired into its controls, the nano-carbon fibre-weave of the Archaeopter's wings is capable of morphing - a property it shares with Pteraxii flight packs. This affords great maneuverability and enables it to operate within changing pressures.[3]

Variants

The Archaeopter's ancient design was eventually deemed holy enough to accommodate sub-roles, creating a number of variants.[3]
