RDS YF24.3 Ptilopsis

Finally posted something after a long time lol


'Sup.

4.5th gen fighter with top-notch manuverability. Has a relatively short range, and was designed as a defense fighter, intended to protect the country it is serving. It is designed to pin down any aerial hostiles relentlessly.

A fighter built purely to absolutely hammer down intruders, aerial or not, the aircraft possess a superior payload capacity and MToW than an average fighter as well as superb manuverability in exchange for small operational range of just 780km*. However it can be launched from a carrier (YF-24.C3 Tidalwave) or refueled mid-air, greatly extending it's strike reach.

*Note: In-game range does not correlate with In-lore range.
