The Pejitei Gunship [1] is a small, single-seater fighter plane.

It has two wings, with outboard vertical stabilizers, and no formal empennage (i.e. no vertical and horizontal stabilizers).

It's fast, maneuverable and armed with two machineguns or autocannons.

Piloted by Lastelle / Rastel's brother, Asbel, he attacks the Torumekian Forces [2], downing two Torumekian Transports until the gunship is shot down by Kurotowa [3].

It is reasonable to think the gunship was constructed from salvaged components found in the Pit of Pejitei due to the obvious fact that its overall design and shape are unorthodox compared to gunships of the time.
