- "It's a Bugatti spaceship!"
- ―Young Oakland Kid
T'Challa and Okoye took a Royal Talon Flyer for their mission to rescue Nakia from a gang of traffickers. While Okoye remained in the air with the aircraft, T'Challa left it and was propelled down to the ground, where he took down the bandits, assisted by Okoye. Once the mission was completed, Okoye flew the Royal Talon Flyer with T'Challa and Nakia back to the Golden City, where Ramonda and Shuri awaited them.
T'Challa, Okoye and Nakia took a Royal Talon Flyer to Busan in a mission to arrest Ulysses Klaue. The mission ultimately failed, and the Wakandans returned home with a heavily wounded Everett Ross in the Royal Talon Flyer.
During the Battle of Mount Bashenga, Shuri planted a Remote Access Kimoyo Bead on the Royal Talon Flyer so that Ross, who remained in Shuri's Lab, could remotely control the aircraft and chase two ships carrying Vibranium weapons sent by Erik Killmonger and escorted by Dragon Flyers.
Ross successfully took down the first two ships, which caught the attention of the Dragon Flyers. Despite being attacked both with damages caused directly on the ship and with one Dragon Flyer attacking the lab from which Ross controlled the Royal Talon Flyer, Ross was able to take down the two Dragon Flyers restraining the Royal Talon Flyer by using the aircraft's sonic overload. He then flew the Royal Talon Flyer right into the last transport ship, destroying both aircrafts.
Journey to Oakland
Another Royal Talon Flyer was built and taken by both T'Challa and Shuri to go to Oakland, where T'Challa planned on building the first Wakandan International Outreach Centre. Before they departed from Oakland, T'Challa deactivated the ship's cloaking while it was landed, revealing to the eyes of nearby children who expressed amazement to the aircraft.
Design and Capabilities
The Royal Talon Flyer is an advanced aicraft with a triangular shape with round angles. The aircraft is capable to fly at high velocities. It also features a cloaking technology rendering it invisible to the naked eye. Moreover, the Royal Talon Flyer is extremely resistant, with the hull being able to withstand shots from Dragon Flyers.
The Royal Talon Flyer is equipped with several weapons, including dual cannons and the ability to unleash a sonic overload powerful enough to destroy nearby aircrafts. However, this particular weapon triggers the reboot of the flight systems, causing the aircraft to be uncontrolled and free falling for a few seconds.
