Brief History
The Fairei X11 Fire Comet is an experimental aircraft, created in secret for the RAF during the Cold War. It was feared that the USSR had supersonic cruiser bombers. The objective of this airplane was to ascend faster than any airplane and to demolish to high level both the enemy bombers, as their missiles and nuclear bombs. Due to this, a solid fuel rocket plane was designed, very suitable to overcome several times the speed of sound, but very unstable at high altitudes and pressures. Despite the risk that it posed for the pilots, it was observed that a smooth piloting, allowed to maintain acceptable safety levels. On the other hand, the plane could fire its missiles and shoot down any enemy in less than 5 minutes, maximum time of autonomy of the plane.
For all this, the British government gave the green light to the project, building only 10 units for the defense of the East Coast and London. Luckily they were never used and were sunk into oblivion in the secret hangar Farnborough Air Force Base.

Features
- High speed at high altitude
- Constant and immediate push
- All-weather operation
- Extremely short flight - 5 minutes
- Can reach easily Yeager from Wright and more
- Very light
- Good maneuverability, but dangerous

Price
500.000 Dollars

Controls
AG1 - Activate rocket engine
AG2 - Activate Gyroscope
AG3 - Landing parachute
AG4 - Emergency parachute

Please read before fly
- Use High physics to fly this plane
- It is an experimental aircraft, stability at high altitude and at high speed can be compromised. It is recommended not to put the G force limit on the aircraft, to avoid fractures in the rocket fuel tank. There have been reports of explosions, when the plane made very sharp turns or sudden changes in speed, for example when applying airbrakes at speeds above 1300 mph.
- It is recommended to maneuver gently, without sharp turns
- Use the airbrake when the rocket fuel is exhausted
- If you run out of fuel and are flying over the ocean, press AG4 to deploy the emergency parachute. The plane is ready to float on the water.

    I thought rocket engines didn't need air intakes?

    @AWESOMENESS360 Well, I understand that in a real situation, the plane would take off to intercept the targets and return to the base ... In this case of SimplePlanes, the plane has to exhaust all its fuel. (Keep in mind that the aircraft is based on a challenge in which engines can not be used). Therefore, this aircraft uses a Guardian missile that acts as a rocket propellant. When the plane runs out of fuel, you can plan to land at the air base. In case you are far away, you can maneuver the plane to a safe area and use the emergency parachute, which usually level the plane for a safe landing, even at sea.

    @mikoyanster I mean like, being able to park it in a hanger and have it sit there until it's next use. I'm talking about a real-life situation, I get that this is SimplePlanes and all, but the again that's just me being petty...

    @AWESOMENESS360 you can land with landing gear... and can use emergency parachutes, remember use High physics

    @mikoyanster what's to be sorry about? I love everything about it! I'm just asking if there's an alternative to landing, if the parachutes don't work properly.

    @AWESOMENESS360 sorry??

    @mikoyanster I understand you're supposed to use parachutes to land, but otherwise how are you supposed to get it to legitimately land, in other terms?

    @sexylips35 hmm, I don't know much about SCP's, so I just assumed the indoraptor would win, especially considering I just watched Jurassic World "Fallen Kingdom".

    @AWESOMENESS360 No, SCP-096 is nearly indestructible humanoid creature, SCP-096 can beat SCP-682 by attempting to tear some of SCP-682 parts, so SCP-096 had won the dinosaur fight, such as the Indoraptor loses.

    Super cool! Very fun to fly around with the rocket engine!

    @BroAeronautics use high physics... I test it and not explode. If you turn much probably explode. I will publish a video that demostrate this question

    Great design and concept, but it has a problem with exploding on takeoff
