Converted from a long range cargo jet platform, the ARES has been retrofitted to haul a massive cache of ballistic systems and their munitions. Often deployed defensively, the weapons mounted on the ARES were modified for use in an assault configuration. This heavy, circulating aircraft can deliver volumes of air-to-ground ordinance at a greater rate than any weapon previously known to man.
