Darkwing Storm Eagle (Stealth Raven)
The Darkwing was a specialized variant of the Storm Eagle used by the Raven Guard during the Horus Heresy and the Great Crusade. These craft were constructed on Kiavahr and the technology that made them was not shared with the greater Adeptus Mechanicus.
This aircraft was extremely stealthy and possessed systems barely understood to the Imperium such as rad-shrouded armour and quantum field repellors. The space these systems took up however reduced infantry-carrying capacity. Thus, these craft were often used to insert small elite units deep into enemy held territory.
