Description

A mod aircraft called KP-9001. Built with 36 of the finest parts, its root part is Mark2Cockpit.

Built in the SPH in KSP version 1.1.0. The KP-9001 is reportedly capable of exactly Mach 0.825758 in a straight line. It packs an extremely lethal armament of 4x 20mms and 6x 0.50cal machine guns. No, insurance does not cover Kerbals attempting to recreate the scene from Top Kun. Warranty void if exposed to light, air, or any other matter. Able to fly at 281 m/s (628.579 mph) at full throttle. Can fly for what the humans refer to as half an hour. Due to the wingsofduty uploading bug and KerbalX not accepting my Imgur pictures, I am stuck with no thumbnail……. Again.

Notes

It is suitable for prop-vs-prop dogfights, due to it’s stunning top speed, but is unable to compete with jets faster than the Me-262. This is due to it being quite unmaneuverable and it’s speed being no match for the power of the jet engines. Reports state that after the top speed is exceeded, the engine shuts off for safety reasons, according to our scientists. Why this is a danger is still being investigated by our scientists.

Maneuvers

Due to it’s high emphasis on speed over all else, there are limited maneuvers one may perform. One of Jeb’s favorites is turning on reverse thrust whilst being perused at high altitude. After you flip out of control, change to normal thrust and hope you don’t hit the ground. One may note it somewhat resembles the Firebrand, a British strike fighter during the WW2 era. One may also note it is fast, making low passes over ground installations both fun and impressive. One may simply fly below 50 meters and scare whatever is below you to death. Some prefer to do the same thing, but below 15m and inverted. One may also try to attach cargo or crew containers to the wings. Warranty will have expired by this point anyway……

Untested in FAR
