The Hyena Interceptor is a flexible attack jet of the GLA.
Formerly based on a fictitious concept, the Interceptor is now modelled after the Su-17 'Fitter' which was exported to Soviet client states in Africa and the Middle East. The new Interceptor, nicknamed "Hyena", will also be functionally different in that its default armament now consists of two externally mounted 30mm autocannons and UB-32 rocket pods.
Rumors that the GLA may soon replace the Su-17 with the recently retired SU-25 "Grach" are unfounded, as the Russians have been very careful to keep close tabs in their remaining stock of Frogfoots and ensure they do not get into the hands of the terrorists.
Order the unit to attack the target area.
Behind the scenes
Prior to 1.87 the Hyena Interceptor is simply named Interceptor (not to be confused with the old version which it replaces in 1.85) and can be upgraded with anti-tank missile or bomb loadouts once Aerial Ordnance GP unlock is obtained; both will replace its rocket pods.
The current design of the Hyena Interceptor was revealed in Blog Update 17.
