Sukhoi-Esque Fighter w/ Stock Missiles

Recommended Posts

The result of a bunch of random experimentation, this fighter craft ended up being heavily inspired by various Sukhoi fighters. It is also quite large, being 3 meters longer and having a 4 meter wider wingspan than an F-22. The craft has excellent low speed preformance, as well as a very high top speed and service ceiling. There is also an alternate version available which possess 4 small missiles. These missiles each utilize 8 seperatrons, they have probe cores and reaction wheels, are able to accelerate from 0 to mach 2, and have an effective range of 2-3 kilometers. These missiles would (obviously) function best in air-to-air applications.

Very interesting tail rudder, nice.

I'm not a fan of these make believe canopys to be honest, I like to see Kerbals actually fly planes.

Does the wings show any Z fighting ?

Depends, the tail fins do past Mach 1, and the entire craft does past Mach 2.5, though at that point it would be hidden by atmospheric affects.
