Description (Specifications)[edit]

This is a fighter which can operate off aircraft carriers. It serves as an escort for the Quanah Bomber squadrons. They must be vectored to their targets, as they lack sensors to find enemy planes.

This Quanah (world) designed plane has a crew of 1 pilot in a complex cockpit fitted with an ejection seat. The transonic airframe is locally manufactured with powered controls and is equipped for short take offs and landings.
