Version 1.1

Description

Performance through speed. Version 1.1

12017.12.28 Update: More Mig-25 like with duel tail, added detachable tri-missile racks, fuselage batteries, small aesthetic changes.

High speed interceptor can easily do over 1200 m/s fully armed. Well flown it can strike and dash away, dodging and outrunning missiles.

Combat procedure: fly towards and down to target at supersonic speed between the altitudes of 3-15 km, fire missiles, then fly past, away and slightly upwards, once 30 km away turn around either vertically (between 6-9 km) or horizontally (<6 km) and repeat.

If missile is ahead: aim for missile and accelerate beyond 500 m/s then pitch up when < 3 km from missile, missile will not be able to match pitch.

If missile is behind: Just keep accelerating away.

If missile is on side: Keep going straight and then turn away when < 2 km from missile, good luck.

A mod aircraft called Caracara. Built with 56 of the finest parts, its root part is Mark2Cockpit.

Built in the SPH in KSP version 1.3.1.
