New Information Released For SOULSTORM Air Units

THQ released some new information today regarding the Space Marine Land Speeder Tempest, and the Chaos Hell Talon, two of the new air units available in Warhammer 40K: Dawn of War: Soulstorm.
Space Marine Land Speeder Tempest:

The Land Speeder has always been one of the most versatile vehicles the Imperium, and is one of the crucial advantages it has over its enemies. The vehicle can comfortably skim just a few feet off the ground and travel at blistering speeds. The ancient designs for this amazing vehicle were recovered by the famous Techno-Archaeologist Arkhan Land, and the vehicle was named in his honor.

The Land Speeder Tempest is a more heavily armored and fully enclosed version of the Land Speeder. This provides the lone pilot with more protection from enemy fire. The Tempest also has a more extended set of wings rather than simple stabilizers. This allows the Tempest to make sharper turns at high speeds, and to help contend with enemy interceptors.

Chaos Hell Talon:

The Chaos Hell Talon is one of the most effective aircraft on the battlefield, and is literally the most terrifying. The machine itself is an unholy merger of man, machine and demon. The engine literally tears the fabric of reality, and briefly exposes the horrors of the warp, and the aircraft itself wails and screams with the cries and curses of the damned souls sacrificed in the process of its creation. It is rumored that the Hell Talon was designed to fit the needs of Abbadon himself in preparation for his 13th Black Crusade against the Imperium.

The aircraft itself is piloted by three Chaos servitors (servitors: a mixture of man and machine). This means that enemy pilots must contend with three minds rather than one, and worse, minds that have no regard for their personal safety. The Hell Talon pilots fly with machine precision, and the reckless abandon of a suicide bomber.
