About

The final production variant of the Spartan attack jet, the KA-3C is named the Cobra because the intakes look like a Cobra's hood when ready to strike.
The final model of the Spartan is pretty much the same as the last models but is slightly more enhanced and upgraded, plus it is actually aircraft carrier capable, unlike the B. Currently the Cobra is replacing the A and B models on the frontlines in the Middle East, Korea, and the Pacific.

    @Strikefighter04 3) In the old days, biplane fighters (and even early WW2 aircraft) had machineguns located in the cockpit so that the pilot could manage them himself. But these were small, hunting rifle sized bullets.

    Modern aircraft cannons fire huge bullets, the size of an arm bone. Some rotary cannons have suprisingly light recoil for their size but it's still a cannon and the low-recoil ones are much larger and heavier than the lighter, recoil-driven ones that shake so bad they literally tear the plane apart.

    There are jets that carry their cannons close to where you've put yours, but they're usually 3 or 4 feet further up the nose.

    3 complaints:
    1) False advertising. Plane in screen caps is visibly different from upload.

    2) You ran the intake ducts through the cockpit, probably not very healthy for the pilot.

    3)The unfortunate location of the rotary cannon means it's too short to properly accelerate its ammunition, blinds the pilot when fired and damages nearby cockpit instruments.
