Description

Mewt is Maltese for death, thus this is the Death Sparrow. Four Bumblebee radial engines in push-pull configuration give it crazy acceleration up to its top speed. However they’re very fuel hungry!

In the configuration to download, it has small drop tanks on the wingtips and a droppable ventral pod with two Vulcans and two 20mm ammo boxes. It can also be filled with fuel. Fuel priority is set to drain tip tanks first, gunpod, then the main tank. Two more Mark 0 fuel tanks can be attached to the rear of the tip tanks. When doing BDA combat it’s best to drop the tip tanks when battle begins. That increases maneuverability and top speed. You may get better results leaving off the belly pod. Less drag and the six Brownings in the nose can fire near continuously VS the delays between bursts of the Vulcans.

The missiles are all AIM-9 because the plane doesn’t have RADAR. Feel free to modify the weaponry, swap the nosecone for a radome. I have a version with Panthers on the rear, intakes on the front, pointy radome and loaded up with AIM-20’s. It’s not much faster but it burns fuel quicker. :)

A mod aircraft called Mewt Sparrow. Built with 75 of the finest parts, its root part is fighterinlinecockpit.

Built in the SPH in KSP version 1.3.0.
