Following World War III and the initial success of the Gabriel Program, the Vatican reinstated the Knights Templar with the sole task of creating a better solider. It did not take long with the aid of the original schematics to design and implement the Gabriel MK II.
Given a jump system integrated with the wings and a new gunblade that could be reassembled into a straight edged sword on the fly, the Mk. II became whispered of in horror stories around the guerrilla encampments on the fringes of the Holy Empire. It was said that it could kill from over a mile away with nothing but a sword.
So my computer died about three weeks ago and severely hindered my progress on this. Overall I think I'm actually rather happy with the way it turned out. There are little improvements I could make here and there I'm sure, but I think it's time to put this one away for now after spending so much time on it.
Thanks to those who critiqued it for me earlier and helped me push it this far. I learned a lot from the comments and I hope to carry the lessons with me into my next project.
