The Cobra Firebat is fast and nimble. Typically, it is launched from Firebat silos, as seen in some Terror Dromes, but can alternatively take flight via catapult as on Cobra's Flying Fortress or even with standard take-off.
I've given it a more fiery orange color for its name, and added standard landing capable gear. The fuselage was inspired by the BD-5J.

The Cobra Rattler is the deadliest aircraft within Cobra Command's arsenal. MARS R&D is combined with illegally acquired Fairchild A-10 Thunderbolt II airframes to create these beasts. It features all the capabilities of the A-10, with the added VTOL functionality and a turret to watch its back.
In addition to giving attention to the A-10 features of the Rattler, I've also heavily borrowed influence from a General Electric turret, as can be seen on the B-25 Bombers. The ordinance array for this image uses a mixture of toy Rattler-influenced bombs and actual ordinance.
