BARD PAPER: VERA0014
design by Idiot/Savant
An early jet fighter. The engine is mounted in the fuselage,
and fed through a large air-intake in the nose, which also houses the
machineguns. While the Sabre is fitted with hardpoints for carrying
external stores, it is mostly used as an interceptor and thus the
hardpoints are mostly used for carrying drop-tanks. However, they can
also be used to carry bombs, or early AAMs.
The plane was designed with Fire Fusion & Steel.
