CMAU Incorporated proudly presents to you our most maneuverable fighter platform ever! We combined the power of reaction wheels with cool wings and lots of control surfaces to make a jet that can pull turns in excess of 10 gees at speeds of under a hundred meters per second! It can pull up from a dive from 10,000 meters at full afterburners in just 200 meters or so! With afterburners on, it can literally balance on its tail as the thrust to weight ratio is greater than one. Its ultra-low stall speed of ~25 meters per second and its ability to maneuver at that speed is what makes this plane ultra maneuverable. Users should be aware of the fact that its inverse dihedral, while adding greatly to the coolness, made the plane less roll stable. Pilots are not advised to use the yaw controls.

Jebediah was majorly impressed by the plane’s speed and maneuverability. He said he could out maneuver any plane ever. (Mortimer was seen to snort at this comment.) Jeb was also pleased that it had the speed to destroy the VAB, but was annoyed to discover that it had no weapons. Order yours today!!
