Description

The Last Curtiss

The Curtiss XF-87 Blackhawk was built as a replacement for the P-61 Black Widow night/all-weather interceptor. However, the contract with the USAF was terminated with Curtiss-Wright when Northrop’s F-89 Scorpion demonstrated better airworthiness and role suitability. This deal-breaker sunk the company, all assets were purchased by North American. The F-87 was slower than expected, and quite large, as well, but had a ‘respectable’ 1000-mile range. This model is slightly undersized and slow, but is fairly maneuverable.
Built in the SPH in KSP version 1.2.2.

Here you will find everything that trails black smoke, jettisons fuel, and runs on liquid oxygen and ammonia. Oh, 20th Century aviation development, where art thou?
