[SS] XF-04 [Refit]
There has been a major change in the game since the release of the XF-04, namely the drag torque changes. This put down the jet's speed from 130m/s to 90+m/s, the once dreaded jet is now an average flyer.

I have made a jet that is cheaper, but retains almost all the characteristics of the previous XF-04. I have made fancy wings, but all control surfaces, in adherence to my design philosophies, stay in the main hull. I have painted it with SS colours.

-115m/s, 10m/s less and not immune to vanilla missiles compared to the previous version in its glory days
- 4x 4-BLK missiles, all radar guided, falk exp, half frag at 60deg
-no directional flare defence
-sexier

I don't know which version, but i have in fact flown an XF-04, trying to shoot down a Chronos while listening to the Ace Combat 5 soundtrack.

More seriously, that looks quite good, though i'm sure it won't be long until i'm cursing it after needing particle cannons to kill them with.

5/7 it's awesome.


That said, needs MOAR JET for MOAR SPEED.
Though that might kick it back up to godly.

Hmm, yeah it is faster, and looks pretty cool too, better than the old.
But, its half the payload, it reloads very slow, and it never seems to fire on anything in the water. I tweaked its attack run distance and the firing constraints and it only slightly improved.

Overall, its draw backs outweigh the good and ill have to keep the original version.

Got it, I'll take note of the concerns for later designs!
