Sabre-Class Fighter

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.
