Gladius

"Gladius" 6th generation stealth fighter concept

Gladius is a recent concept Rainier created, utilizing a lifting body "pincer" design that houses room for tons of fuel and weapons giving Gladius an incredibly long range.

Due to part limitation and xml-modding being barred from the challenge, Gladius is severely nerfed, but the official version (which I plan on making) will only have 2 powerful turbofan engines, twin pulse lasers, and rotator-controlled flight control surfaces.

This is actually a tribute or "homage" to the XF-0002 Phosphorus (aka Vic Viper), a super-fighter from an old Xbox air combat game called "Air Force Delta Storm", which was the first aircraft-related game I ever played and fell in love with.

    Wish the thumbnail wasn't so dark. I was trying to get the sun to pop-out more in contrast against the sky and I noticed you can achieve that by switching between different weather themes. However to capture the effect you have to be real quick in closing the settings window and hitting F9 and F12 to capture the screenshot. Unfortunately it appears the thumbnail is too dark to make out the outline of the aircraft... RIP
