Wing sweep is variable, but not in flight. Adjustments must be made in hangar to account for payload mass.

A test pilot engages the abort sequence and the cockpit is carried away from the doomed airframe.

Rotating bomb racks allow rapid deployment of various ordinance.

It’s got two wings and flies, is there anything else you need?
