The Pinto Attack VTOL is a speedy VTOL that went into full production in 3055. It is popular amongst the Explorer Corps and the Com Guards in general. Following the conquest of Terra by Word of Blake in 3058, Krupp Armament Works continued to produce the Pinto for the Word of Blake Militia. The Pinto is well-armored for a VTOL with four tons of ferro-fibrous armor. It also has a ton of cargo space that is usually used to transport a squad of infantry.[1]

Weapons and Equipment[edit]

The Attack VTOL has three Blankenburg Technologies medium lasers that it uses to make high-speed passes at enemies. In instances where close-range combat is not desirable, it can still participate with its Magna Longbow-5 LRM-5 launcher that is guided by an Artemis IV FCS.[1]
