Description

The T-21 Rattlesnake Was developed for the KDAF under the Maneuverable Bomber Program in 2078 along with the T-47 to fill a gap in the bomber force.

The T-21 is designed for use on the battlefield for use as a ground attack aircraft and recon bomber. The T-21 is supermaneuverable, can carry a huge payload for its size at the cost of range, overall is a amazing light bomber. Its roles range from a short range nuclear deterrent to a reconnaissance aircraft to a ground attack Strike Fighter.

History

Starting in 2078 when Russia threatened the KSC and The Republic of North American Kerbin, sparking an arms race.
Korthrup Grumman, Kaytheon, and Lockheed Kartin were selected to submit concepts, producing around 175 designs. Lockheed Kartin’s concept was selected for prototyping and production. The M-21 prototype was developed, after a long and protracted development, it finally flew in 2084. But despite the long and protracted development, the KDAF ordered 750 of them. The T-21’s combat debut came in 2094 during Operation Congo, along with the T-47, defended the Florida Keys from a Samaritan invasion. During the Operation Congo, The T-21 excelled as a tank and bunker buster and a low-level recon platform, destroying nearly 3600 tanks, 5000 IFVs, and 6000 Artillery pieces.

Another Time where the T-21 excelled as a anti-ship strike fighter is when it was deployed in the 2112 War of the Mexican Gulf, where the KDAF and the KGDF battled with invaders from Russia. Where it sunk numerous ships and landing craft near Texas. It was also used to bomb a Manitobain insurgency in Canada.
