Royal Engineering was not prepared to let their enduring design be consigned to history as work was done to strengthen the wings to carry heavy weapons, Royal Engineering Lid gave the case to the Ministry of War and Defence about turning the Falcon into a close support aircraft, with no jet powered close support design presented, it was conceded that the Falcon remain in service. The advent of plasma technology was not ignored as a possible upgrade of the enduring Falcon HWA, a plasma fuel battery and engine was installed to power the forward prop, and when weaponries plasma became available it eventually revolutionised weapon designs within the Royal Needlehelmian Armed Forces, the plasma cannons were created, and Royal Engineering did not hesitate to make provisions for the installation of plasma cannons on the wings of the Falcon HWA. The Falcon HWA is now facing a challenge by group of engineers within Royal Engineering to replace the old design, who proclaimed that the Falcon HWA is antiquated and needs a replacement, these engineers eventually designed the Stormbringer autogyro gunship that can carry almost the same weapon load as the Falcon HWA, even though the Stormbringer gunship is now in service, the Stormbringer had major flaws (like its size, speed, takeoff time) that the Ministry of War and Defence ruled that the Stormbringer could not possibly fill the role of the Falcon HWA When the war with Terranians began, the Falcon was the first aircraft to respond to the Terranian with a barrage of rockets that helped repel the attack, field commanders like this aircraft because of the low mythril supply requirements and the fact that the plasma weapons have a separate plasma batteries that contain weaponized plasma (carried in under wing pods) meaning that it wont be a drain on the aircrafts main plasma batteries.
