Introducing the Thonker Speed. The Thonker Speed exceeds speeds of over 1500m/s and endures an immense amount of heat on the nose cones and the vertical stabilizers, Altera.Co advises you to take turns below 275m/s. The Thonker Speed was designed for water reconnaissance flying under 100m at supersonic speeds.

Explanation time! A Thonker is defined by it’s large vertical stabiliser, it’s multiple whiplash engines and it’s signature swept wings. All Thonkers were made for multipurpose missions but it’s mainly used for reconnaissance and a discoverer looking for new places for science labs

Altera.Co has fitted the new Thonkers with emergency abort systems in case of CF. Usually Thonkers would have their engines horizontally but adding adapters caused some drag but Altera’s engineers placed the 4 whiplash engines vertically to lower drag

Here is a photo of the EAS (Emergency Abort System) in use photographed by ██████.
