Extremely maneuverable, it was designed as the EXF-26 by RAC Aerospace (now Aevance Defence) and the North Erandian Munitions Factory for the EIX-II Aircraft program, as a competitor to the EXF-25 "Halberd".

The ADF-05 is capable of reaching speeds of 3000KM/H, and has a range of 1250KM on internal fuel,and 3000KM on external fuel.
The ADF-05 is capable of pulling Extreme PSMs, and can outmaneuvere even the Ferulian Air force's SF-251 and Erandian ADF-02s. It is one of the first aircraft in Erandian inventory to be equipped with All-moving units.
It is Pre-equipped with a C-52 Missile Countermeasure package, and a 30mm Cannon. The aircraft also has 4 external wing hardpoints. The plane is equipped with a EVM-26 AESA radar and a MK3 Electronic warfare system. It is the first aircraft in the Erandian Armed forces to be linked into the Skydrive integrated combat coordination system.
Testing on the ERN Lightoller, the Erandian navy's training carrier.

Do not exceed 30% thrust on takeoff or landing. Thrust vectoring will automatically turn on when landing gear is retracted. Landing Flaps will automatically retract what craft is 6 metres or more fr the ground.
The ADF-05 took some time to complete, but it was worth It. I learnt a number of new building skills from this. It is also the first build with a Half-cockpit, which was inspired by ALRXs half-cockpits. The ADF-05 is a combination of the SU-57 and the YF-23. What do you think? Constructive criticism is welcome, and do slap an updoot on the way out!
