Description

Designed in the 1950’s, the Tiger is a carrier-based fighter aircraft built for the US Navy. 1 toggles afterburner.
The idea for this aircraft began as an update for the F9F-6/7/8 series as the XF9F-9, but developed into a totally different aircraft, implementing an area-rule fuselage for more stable supersonic flight. It lived a short 11-year U.S. Navy service life from 1956 to 1967, and served as Blue Angels demonstration planes until 1969. Top speed was 727mph, or 325m/s. This version can do well over 400m/s in a dive, though, making its supersonic flight characteristics more akin to the F-11-1F Super Tiger, which was a similar air-frame with a GE J-79 wedged in it as opposed to a Wright J-65 in regular Tigers. This model is physically similar and holds speed in a turn, maintaining 6 gees all day.
Built in the SPH in KSP version 1.2.2.
