TR-3A ''Black Manta''

Auto Credit Based on ThePropellerIsAFan's No Vertical Stabilizer Challenge

The TR-3A “Black Manta” is a highly classified stealth reconnaissance flying wing aircraft, that often times is confused for the Black Triangle UFO. These two crafts are very much so different from each other. Anyway, here’s some pics, both the real TR-3A, and it’s SP Counterpart:

This one isn’t a real photo, just an art piece.

Controls:
Normal Aircraft controls, AG-1 for lights, and AG-8 for landing assistance. (gyro)
A weird thing I’ve noticed about this aircraft while I was making, it is that it flies just fine without any vertical stabilizers. Now obviously, we have lots of aircraft that fly just fine without vertical stabilizers, like the B-2 Spirit. In SimplePlanes on the other hand, the flight simulator requires aircraft to have atleast one vertical stabilizer in order to fly correctly, however, there are none on this creation, yet it flies just fine? Idk, maybe one of the smarter people around here can explain to me how that works.

Have Fun!

    @Subnerdica not exactly, the TR-3A is powered by conventional jet engines, has a similar, but noticeably different light pattern, and the rear section is also visibly different, I’m not entirely certain what the engineering advantage is with the design choice of the notches at the back for the exhaust ports, but it is a highly classified aircraft, so who knows.
