WRITE, standing for "Wing in Rear Interceptor Technology Experiment," was a platform to test multiple different technologies Moxjet was developing. It tested the effects of putting the majority of the wing behind the fuselage and engines, thrust-vectoring technology, as well as weather forecasting technologies to better prepare the craft for any weather it may be coming up on. The results of tests did not provide the results that the company was looking for, so development of this craft into a real fighter was cancelled. It did, however, provide amazing data for scientists.

For me, this craft helped me test how to make VTOL nozzles rotate only one direction. I tried to put one of Sarapintu's cockpits in the front, but i realized that id have to completely scrap my aircraft to do it :/

Tips:
-Be careful on takeoff...
-Be careful on landing, its not very manuverable without thrust...

Enjoy! -M
