The Aerospatiale SA-2 Samson is a light ducted-fan craft designed to carry out mostly non-combat missions. The Samson is armed with machine guns and rocket pods, and is used to transport cargo and personnel to and from isolated sites.
The Samson should fly well in thin or thick atmospheres or in extreme temperatures.
As a utility craft, the Samson's primary defense is its speed and maneuverability. The armaments usually seen on the SA-2 are a pair of M60 Machine Guns fixed forward to be remotely operated by the pilot and missile pods on pylons immediately aft of the cockpit.
The Samson uses a pair of ducted fans with coaxial propellers, increasing the lift efficiency while granting excellent maneuverability. Both fans are capable of rotating independently backwards and forwards. Left and right movement is possible by rotating the fans in opposite, forward & aft directions; the Samson moves forward by rotating its fans horizontally. As a result, the Samson is incredibly maneuverable.
