The Mk 86-B

With the introduction of the Mk 86-B, Imperial kills began to mount up in Yaisdra IX PDF Air Force were on the rise. The main difference seen on the Mk 86 to the Mk 86-B is the internal avionics and additional hard points; sporting two pairs of 37mm Autocannons. As well as replacing the rear gunner with a targeting servitor to help increase the micro management of the fuel and radar tasks on board the Mk 86-B. Late in the winter campaign the Ork warboss' Bombing campaign reached an all time high; scoring devastating hits on the local forge plant producing the Mk 86-B. With the lack of resources and the war continuing on, the 1st Fighter Wing's 94th Fighter Squadron's stock of Mk 86-B became very low. Favoured among Flight Leaders the Mk 86-B slipped down to just a hand full and reserved for the few Aces of Yaisdra IX who had seen the grizzled fighting from the beginning.
