Description

The XB-70 was a large, long-range strategic bomber was planned to be the replacement for the B-52. As in the B-58 program, the Air Force wanted new technology advances. To this end, the Air Force gave the prime contractor total weapon system responsibility. Competition between Boeing and North American for the contract occurred during the design phase. In 1958, the North American design was chosen and a development contract awarded. The Air Force requirement was for a Mach 3, high-altitude, long-range bomber capable of carrying nuclear and conventional weapons. (fas.org)

This replica is large and complicated. In my humble opinion, it is the best-looking XB-70 on KerbalX. It flies well, but due to the high drag, speed is limited to about Mach 1. Still, it looks pretty, which is the point of replicas of course. ;) Handling is okay for the size of the aircraft, but yaw tends to have opposite roll due to the anhedral wings. Have fun!
