Dark Talons are fighter aircraft used by the Dark Angels and their successors' Ravenwing formations. A close air-support aircraft armed with two Hurricane Bolters, a Rift Cannon, and a Stasis Bomb, the Dark Talon is thought to be the deadliest weapon in the Ravenwing's arsenal. It plays a pivotal role in the 2nd Company's eternal hunt. Dark Talons are ornately and finely decorated with artifacts recovered from Caliban itself. Dark Talons usually fly low in attack runs, following the contours of the surrounding terrain and hitting its ground-facing boot jets to hang in the air and more accurate its prey below.
The Dark Talon also carries a stasis-crypt holding cell used to transport captives and ultimately deliver them to the dreaded dungeons of The Rock.
