Stringbag (Two seat version)-Class Biplane
design by Idiot/Savant
A two seat version of the Stringbag, used for artillery spotting,
light bombing, and as a heavier fighter. Like its smaller counterpart,
the Stringbag two-seater is limited to daylight missions, and those
only in good weather. And again, there is no room for parachutes.
The plane was designed with Fire Fusion & Steel.
