Intro

The Switcorp GR-9 was originally designed in the year 2007. It is a multirole, potentially carrier based jet. The plane was intended to be a modernized hybrid between the F-8 Crusader and the Sepecat Jaguar. In 2009, the USAF ordered its first GR-9s. It is currently the only variable incidence wing fighter in service with the USAF.

Notes From the Designer

  • When landing on carrier, be sure to come in almost level with the deck and as close to stall speed as possible

  • Wings automatically lock in place when VTOL is at zero, so make sure it gets there before high speed flying

  • Don't put VTOL down

I hope you enjoy!

    No probs man! Thank you so much! Also, I saw that you were tagging a bunch of people in one comment. I think you can only tag like 4 people on one comment to notify them all. So if you want to notify them, simply make more comments with like 4 tags in each one.@switdog08

    Very cool looking jet, I’d insert more wings to increase lift or disable drag in some parts as it fall like a brick when you kill the throttle. Neat looking build though!
