Description

Originally envisioned as a high-speed, high payload bomber, the ‘Skyline’ has potential for much, much more. 3 internal weapon bays and 6 external hardpoints mean that you will be able to make that grocery trip in one run, and look great doing it.

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.

I don’t need no rocket science.
