After the announcement of the retirement of the F-50I and downsizing of AF-50IB/FR fleets, the North Kerbin Air Force issued a requirement for a new, lightning-fast fighter-interceptor. Krowing submitted a modified F-3E Twin Falcon, with ACR Aerospace submitting a prototype for the complete redesign of the F-30A, named the F-30IDS.

Stated to be capable of high Mach 2; Mach 3 under certain conditions, the F-30 was declared the winner of the competition for favourable turn performance even when not performing in it’s usual interceptor role.

ACR used it’s much-loved variable geometry wing, as with the F-9 series, earlier F-30A and F-17T, granting it a good turning radius while sacrificing G-limits and high-alpha performance.
