The McDonnell XF-85 Goblin was a prototype parasite fighter developed in the late 1940s to protect bomber squadrons. The XF-85 was designed to be carried in the bomb bay of a Convair B-36J Peacekeeper (coming soon) on long bombing missions, where it would be deployed if enemy fighters threatened.
Ultimately the design failed due to its poor maneuverability compared to other jet fighters, as well as difficulties docking the craft back into the parent bomber. This was mainly due to the large amount of turbulence between the two craft, making controlling it a challenge.
The two XF-85 prototypes did not carry landing gear, and instead had to make belly landings when the docking failed. For usability reasons, my recreation carries some, and it can take off and land easily enough.
