I was looking at the Forgeworld site and I saw that the Dark Eldar had a Raven flyer and access to the Void Dragon. Didn't htay also have one other flyer previously? I believe it was unique as it had a dual fuselage set-up.

Yep. The Razorwing. The model seems to be oop.

Yes, it was two Raven flyer bodies connected in Star Wars Episode 5 style (cloud City).

Or a p-40 (?) lightning.

Anyone recall what it was armed with?

Twin linked Darklance and twinlinked long-barreled Splinter cannon as well as a terrorfex. Hideously underarmed for its points - it is more expensive than a Landraider. .

Pretty much any non-Imperial flyer is very underarmed... but that holds true for a lot of vehicles I'm afraid. If it ain't Imperial, it ain't gonna kill that much! (Hammerheads aside!) I mean, take the Nightwing: 285 points for what's basically a twin-linked Falcon...

Actually, in Appocolypse, it is not twinlinked. Plus it has several other advantages other fliers don't get.

@Easy E: It's a P-38 (the lightning). First aircraft model I ever put together.
Like most FW stuff, the Razorwing is overcosted for what it can do. A mate of mine bought one ages ago (2001 or so), and would probably bring it out of retirement for apoc games if we pressed him.

P-38? Moar like Twin Mustang.

Easy E's question was about a P-XX 'lightning'. Thus, the P-38.
Agreed, however, that the F-82 twin mustang is a closer match for the Razorwing, though.
The F-82 had 6x .50 (BMG?) machine guns in the centre wing,
The P-38, however, had two Browning .50" (12.7mm) machine guns with 200 rounds per gun, two .30" (7.62mm) Brownings with 500 rounds per gun, and an Oldsmobile 37mm cannon with 15 rounds.
