"This is a special version of the AV-8B which features the same color scheme as the aircraft flown by Kim Aba, a character who appears in the Japanese comic, "Area 88". It features improved acceleration performance and turning capabilities in low speed ranges allowing it to make tight turns during air-to-ground attacks. In addition, it is a VTOL (vertical take-off and landing) aircraft making it suitable for carrying out search missions in harsh forests and narrow valleys."
