The F-94 Starfire was the first U.S. all-weather jet interceptor. Although it bears a striking resemblance to the P-80 Shooting Star, the F-94 was a large upgrade. It was the first U.S. fighter to feature an afterburning turbojet, and had a slimmer shape than the P-80. It also featured two pods with 24 anti-air rockets each, allowing pilots to fill the sky with lead to take down enemy bombers.

The F-94 also holds the unique distinction of being the only jet to be killed by a biplane ever. In Vietnam, the Viet Cong were using Russian Po-2 biplanes as low-flying, slow-moving bombers with a low radar signature with moderate success. They flew so slow, that one F-94 stalled out trying to intercept one and crashed into the jungle.

This version only features two rockets, but they have the power to take out the VAB, so fire away.
