This is a fighter built for HB Stratos and servo's competition, and I submit it here too!
This is meant to be a carrier-based 4th gen fighter, with a lot of inspiration from actual aircraft.
This well maneuverable fat ass plane uses two overpowered afterburner turbofans to carry the following weapons:
- 1 cluster bomb (from me)
- 4 unguided missiles (from HB Stratos)
- 6 guided missiles (from IMLL1)
It can overpass the speed of sound when you're starting to gain altitude, max speed: 850m/s
I think it fits well as a heavy interceptor for both attack and defense, don't forget that you can change its weapons for all missions needs personal notes
During the building phase, I had a lot of fun messing around fairings using some magic to fit all my needs, increasing my skills with fairings. Oh, and I build it without plans, the best way to build things in ksp

This plane is a STOL 4.5 gen fighter, equipped with 6 missiles, 2 drop tanks, and even 2 drogue chutes!
Developed at the end of the cold war by 4 countries from Europe, this versatile fighter was meant to be flown in a formation of 5 in a V shape, the goal is to focus the main objectives and destroy them as fast as possible. Sadly, due to the small budget allowed for this aircraft, it doesn't include thrust vectoring at all, relying entirely on its tail fins for its maneuverability. Because of the same reason, it is single-engined. The way the air is collected is completely new: the sidelines are collecting passively the air through really small holes, allowing the craft to be much lighter and a bit more stealthy without those pesky intakes.
This ultra maneuverable delta wing configuration plane uses a single overpowered afterburner turbofan to carry the following weapons:
- 4 HVAR unguided missiles (from HB Stratos)
- 2 Mavericks unguided missiles (from HB Stratos)
It can overpass the speed of sound when you're starting to gain altitude, max speed: 800m/s Personal notes
It was pretty fun to build, and ultra fun to fly! If you're afraid of the lag, you can unarm it, dropping to the part count to ~110 parts, making it more maneuverable at the same time! Personal notes
