The YF-93 is a much-evolved Sabre, originally a design called F-86C which housed a larger afterburning engine. One could call it an ‘intermediate step’ between the F-86 and F-100, competing in the same trials that the XF-88 Voodoo won, even though the YF-93 received the contract. Much like most prototypes of this age, it was designed in the midst of rapid technological advancement, and was out of place by the time it was being produced. Research found that, at high angles of attack, the NACA-style intake ducts restricted airflow, causing loss of power. NACA used the two prototypes as chase planes for various programs until they were both scrapped.

This design was an early application of area-rule fuselage, as well, which made trans-sonic flight slightly more stable than its distant predecessors.
Built in the SPH in KSP version 1.2.2.
