Description

The Vought F-8 Crusader (originally F8U) was a single-engine, supersonic, carrier-based air superiority jet aircraft built by Vought for the United States Navy and Marine Corps, replacing the Vought F7U Cutlass, and for the French Navy. The first F-8 prototype was ready for flight in February 1955. The F-8 served principally in the Vietnam War. The Crusader was the last American fighter with guns as the primary weapon, earning it the title The Last of the Gunfighters.

This craft flies really well. Top speed is 400m/s and maneuverability is something else. It can handle absurdly high angles of attack for long periods of time. Take off and land at 50m/s. Careful not to hit the engine on the runway.

A stock aircraft called F-8 Crusader. Built with 45 of the finest parts, its root part is Mark1Cockpit.

Built in the SPH in KSP version 1.2.0.
