Description

The astute would notice that this is just my previous upload, the FJT 2-04, without FAR. And they would be right. I copied it from my FAR folder to check how it would fair in stock. It worked fine, but I thought I could add some bells and whistles - extra wings, changed the gear, fixed the action groups. All in all, I’m stoked about this plane. It’s slower than MAPs 1 and 2, but its operational ceiling is just the same and it won’t pull Gs that would kill a kerbal. This jet was designed with profile flatness in mind, and, to that note, I think I did a pretty good job. Plus, this plane taught me something useful: the slightest tilting-up of the nose piece (about a degree or two) provides actual body lift at the nose, both in FAR and in stock (the light blue spikes).
A stock aircraft called J-X4iii MAP-3 (Stock). Built with 68 of the finest parts, its root part is Mark2Cockpit.

Built in the SPH in KSP version 1.0.4.
