Mu idea is a projectile that burns the place when it hits, like a napalm strike, but this projectile got a system inside that stay fixed on the floor on hit, this system throw lava around the place it is standing.
It is called the "Phoenix" because the victims who is near the landing place get blind by the projectile strike, them when they can see again everything around is fire, and in the middle looks like a strange creature that came from the ashes of all that fire.
Please tell if I'm on topic.

ok ive narrowed down on a sketch for the design , im getting to the final line drawing stage, heres a WIP >>

idea : The phoenix is a quick , stealthy , lower altitude range craft which deploys drone-mines in enemy territory and ecapes just before these timed mines explode . Ill make the idea clearer visually soon , must finish this first
feedback will help ..
more progress >>
im not sure about those purple transparent shield like things inside each circle ... any help ? i was thinking something like that or smthing else sci-fi-ish inside those circles , any help would be great ...

I like the purple but mainly because it adds some interest. The connections between the circles and the main body could be a bit more secure and interesting- look a bit like they're going to fall off right now - even just another strut or two.

Cool concept. I like the vortexes in the circles, I think its working. It might be cool to make them glow bright orange or yellow, to make it look more like a "phoenix". Right now it just looks like a cool ship. Also, and I understand if it is too late to try and fix this, but right now, as it sits, its hard to tell which end is facing forward. Maybe try and thin up the front end to make it look a little more "aerodynamic"
