3,310 DatPorscheGuy15  10 months ago

Ag1 to ignite the engine (it is a rocket) and Ag2 to jettison the landing trolley. The SAC RK1 was a rocket powered interceptor based off the Messerschmitt 163 komet. The RK1 proved to be a good interceptor but unfortunately it was only able to hold enough fuel for around 6 minutes of powered flight due to its thirsty engine. It was also very dangerous and highly explosive. There were however some massive upsides. It was cheap to build, Had excellent climb rates and could go higher than any air breathing aircraft at the time. It was also capable of supersonic speeds at high altitudes. Equipped with a gun in the nose and two missiles.
