The Convair B-36J Peacekeeper was an early long-range bomber designed during the Cold War. The massive bomber was designed to carry the smaller F-85 Goblin fighter in its massive bomb bay. However, docking the parasite fighter was impractical, and ultimately no B-36s were ever used in war, as they were rapidly outclassed by faster, longer range bombers like the B-52.

The B-36’s unique combination of six pusher radial engines and four jet engines came about because the turboprops weren’t powerful to get the B-36 off the ground without additional help. My recreation actually flies fairly well, though the wings are pretty floppy (time warp is a no-go).

The included Goblin is capable of being recovered in-flight, but like the IRL version, it is insanely difficult. That said, I have managed it before :D.
