-Basic Description

This aircraft is best described as my interpretation of an A-Wing, as it shares very few things in common with the actual craft pictured in Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back. This jet has a relatively low TWR, only just maintaining vertical flight with the afterburners on. However, I think it fits the craft, since A-Wings were meant to be close ranged dogfighters. The pilot is fully capable of exiting the aircraft. It’s surprisingly maneuverable, given the total lack of frontal control surfaces, and is pretty fun to fly. Its body is composed of four Aeroplane wings, which gives it an enormous amount of lift. During one test of the craft I crashed into the VAB, destroying the 2 left Aeroplane Wings, yet it was still entirely controllable and I was able to land it back on the runway rather easily.
