The Icarus Jetfighter is an amazing feat of engineering and Art. Able to act not only as a Jet Plane, but as a near ground Hoverer. The pilots, known as Archangels are each perfectly attuned to their jet and can manouver it with micron level precision.

As members of the second Directorate, the Brotherhood Archangels are the Aerospace branch of the Brotherhood military force. Resplendent in spotless white flight suits and with long, flowing hair, the Archangels are defined by a consistent level of perfection that is applied to all aspects of their military career. Most members of this elite air corps are proficient in the Art of Mentalism which is said to allow them to become utterly focused in the heat of battle, thus making them the best pilots humanity has to offer. Just like its Archangel Pilots, the Icarus Jetfighter is a refined demonstration of the perfection all of Brotherhood’s pilots seek to achieve. Each Jetfighter is ‘owned’ by one Archangel and it is his or her responsibility to personally ensure the highest possible levels of maintenance. The pride an Archangel puts into their Icarus is omnipresent, the body and wings are kept mirror clean, and not a smear of dirt will be permitted. The weapons receive the same fastidious treatment. With the threat of Dark Symmetry on the minds of nearly all of humankind, the Icarus Jetfighter itself is the real pinnacle of human engineering and permitted technology. As a state of the art example, the Icarus Jetfighter is fitted with a mind-boggling array of fine handling controls and maintenance systems. Only the best pilots, gifted with a touch of the Art, are able to handle such a precision instrument. The Archangels are all too aware of their near super-human ability and take great pride in their superior aeronautical skills. Each Icarus Jetfighter is manned by two brotherhood crew, one being the Archangel Pilot and the other the Navigator. In surface battles the Archangel is focused on piloting the Icarus in ‘fist’ mode. In this mode the crafts wings act as a skirt, allowing a hovercraft like manoeuvrability, while minute feathering of the engine allow the vessel to pivot, or move subtlety in any direction. In such close combat situations the Navigator takes control of the weapon systems. With three armaments, the Navigator must consider the tactical viability of each payload and only apply it when it is appropriate. The weapons are designed for suppressive, anti-infantry attacks. The focal weapons are the ‘Cardinal’s Fury’ Gatling Guns, designed by the Blessed Engineers and mounted beneath each wing. Each Cardinal’s Fury fires at a rapid rate, ripping lightly armoured infantry to ribbons. The Icarus houses a Firefist Flamethrower which douses the enemies of The Brotherhood in cleansing flame and finally the craft can deposit timed trip mines protecting its rear engines from potential attack.
