Descri-BRRRRRRRRRTT

Once again overhauled, it’s now lighter and faster, with a lower part count and gaudy noseart.
Designed to take major damage and give out much more, the ‘Blitzen’ is ideal for flying low over a field, losing half a wing, and landing on a flat patch of dirt after. Just don’t expect to be going fast at all, armour comes at a heavy price.

Blitzen has a few layers of redundancy, including rudder-braking, aileron flaps, and secondary landing gear.

In more extreme cases, otherwise critical damage can still be managable. Asymmetric loss can be mitigated through ‘Manual Coersion Mode’; in this context forcing half the airbrakes to reduce lift on the remaining wing.

I don’t need no rocket science.
