With the same powerplant as the X-4, the X-5 was built with a more narrow fuselage, narrow wings, and minimal drag to push the speed envelope to the limit. However, the X-5’s narrow wings required test pilots to perform landings at much higher speeds in order to maintain control. The X-5’s max recorded speed is 940 m/s at sea level, however Jeb was forced to reduce the throttle due to the engine being seconds away from exploding.

Action Groups:
[1] Toggles Afterburner
[3] Toggles Engine
[4] Toggles Cockpit Lights

Built in the SPH in KSP version 1.4.5.
