Description

The McDonnell FH Phantom was an early subsonic fighter-jet, being test flown just as World War II was coming to a close. As it was McDonnell’s first successful jet fighter, it established their name as a supplier of military aircraft for years to come, and proved the viability of a carrier-borne jet fighter. Its development lead to the F2H Banshee, a widely successful plane that saw combat service in the Korean War. The FH’s sleek embedded-in-wing engine design proved very efficient, and folding wings made carrier operations familiar to deck hands used to piston-engine fighters of the war. Only 62 were made, but it proved to be an excellent proof of concept.
This recreation handles smoothly, but loses speed in long, sharp turns.

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?
