The Skinook is a very basic some would say crude twin rotary wing aircraft used extensively by the Skinners to transport both troops and equipment around the battlefield. It is lightly armed but extremely rugged and is usually escorted by dedicated gunships capable of engaging both air and ground targets in its defence. The passengers sit in the open sided main cabin and have been known to add their own small arms fire to the aircrafts defence. A rear drop down ramp allows for easy loading of cargo and light vehicles like bikes.
Armament is usually twin heavy machine guns mounted in the nose and a door mounted light machine gun to port and starboard, but other armaments have been observed.
