UKSAF F-12 Panther JSF.

-Used as an all purpose fighter jet by the UKSAF

-Built by Kockhead Martian for the UKSAF’s Joint Strike Fighter Program

-14 weapons mounting points, 2 of which can be used for external fuel tanks(I recommend firespitter’s external fuel drop tank system), and another 2 can be used for system pods. 4 of these points are on the rotating internal weapons bay. You can mount any weapon in the bay as long as it fits inside the cargo bay. Hot Keys for it are as follows: 6 opens the bay, 7 closes it, 8 rotates the weapons rack. On each wing their is a Trident 2 missile rail system. They are meant for missiles only, if you put free fall bombs on them you may experience rapid plane break-up and explosion. For the Trident 2 system to work correctly the missiles should be set up a de-couple speed of 2 and a drop time of .6 Anything else may result in rapid plane break-up and explosion.

-VTOL Capable(Set main engine thrust to 90 to do so, then change to 100 once horizontal flight is achieved) Hot keys, 9 and 0 are the change to VTOL mode keys.

-The F12 is a joint project by the UKS Armed Forces to build and maintain a single fighter jet capable of being used by all of the branches for most mission types in order to cut costs. This project has been riddled by cost and time overruns as more and more requirements were piled onto the aircraft. The total cost to the UKSAF for R&D was around $480 billion and unit cost has increased from an expected $25 million to a massive $45 million since the project began. The plane has also lost a large portion of its stealth abilities, its advanced thrust vectoring system, and lost an engine due to the VTOL requirement. Then plane is also not able to utilize any of the UKSAF’s system pods due to a computer system not recognizing them. Originally the F-12 JSF was supposed to be able to share what its powerful radar can see with the other UKSAF fighter jets but that system was also sacrificed for the VTOL requirement.
