Developed parralel to the famous Harrier, the Eagle was a blended wing (flying saucer) concept that utilised a central lifting fan (VTOL up) and 2 RR Avons with reheat for horizontal thrust. Designed primarily for Short Takeoff or Landing it did have just enough power to operate as a VTOL if pushed.
Takeoff procedure for short takeoff: VTOL full up, full throttle, press AG1, pull back on the stick.
Featuring automatic landing gear, gear doors and landing lights
Inspired in part by some artwork from cutangus on deviantart with my own development.
