Socrux S.F-190 Flecha

A design that dates back to Socrux's earliest attempts at supersonic interceptors, the Flecha (Arrow) has seen several updates during its service life. The last operational variant features canards for enhanced maneuverability, provisions for IFR, and extra fuselage hardpoints for air-to-ground weaponry. Shown here is the aircraft in pure air-to-air configuration with two drop tanks.

Air-to-ground configuration

The Flecha shows its age, lacking in advanced systems and with limited countermeasure capability. True to its legacy as an interceptor aircraft, its internal fuel capacity is rather limited, and as a result the aircraft relies on two large drop tanks to increase its operational range, which drastically limit its performance. Nevertheless, once the tanks are jettisoned and the aircraft is properly trimmed, the Flecha is a responsive and decently agile aircraft, able to hold its own in combat against newer designs when in the hands of an experienced pilot.

    Thanks a bunch, I'll try to stick as close to that as I can, though 3-6PM CET is a bit early for me most of the times. Still got one to go today though.

    @FlyingHueman umm I would say between 3-6pm CET is the time I usually post since I’m in Europe and I get off college and work around then. Also around 10pm CET is a good time too but it’s less reliable I find

    @Mustang51 At the risk of sounding tiresome, mind giving an estimate of more or less how many hours + or - from now that would be? Usual times could be different and besides, college has kind of destroyed my sense of time, lel.

    @FlyingHueman nice idea man! Try to post them around the times people from the US and central Europe get out of work and school. That usually is the best time to post it in my opinion. I’ll try to help you through spotlighting because you need more recognition!

    @Mustang51 Well, I've only started posting stuff just now so I didn't really expect much, wasn't really surprised. What did surprise me, though, was this comment! I'm really glad you enjoyed it.

    This is one of my older designs from a long time ago, I've got a fair amount of things I have yet to post. Per site rules, one can only post three per day though, so over the next days I'll be trying to send these out as best as I can.
