Description

So, again i decided to update this jet, i originally planned to make a xml update with small changes like adding tooltips to levers but it eventually got too different from the original. I also made some improvements to the plane's performance so if you compare the older versions to this one, you will probably notice a difference.

    @MAHADI Idk, it's basically just 3 fuselage tubes connected together since I didn't know how to make the transition from inlet to fuselage smooth. Doesn't look bad I guess but I didn't expect people to like it so much, especially since this is the 3rd version of the same plane.

    This is by far my most upvoted and downloaded plane, I wonder why everyone likes it so much.

    @Korzalerke Maysia uses Mays, represented by M§.
    1 M§= 10 USD.
    We will pay 150,000 Mays for 2 units, and buy the rest at a later date.
