Phantom-Class Interceptor

design by Idiot/Savant

An advanced TL-6 / early TL-7 design, intended for use as a supersonic interceptor and fighter/bomber. The aircraft is fitted with multiple plumbed hardpoints and an inflight refuelling probe to increase endurance, and has a corrosion-resistant airframe and strengthened landing-gear for carrier use. Both crewmembers are provided with ejector seats.

Typical load is four 200 kg TL-6 radar-designated AAMs on fuselage hardpoints (1700 kg), two 100 kg TL-6 IR-homing AAMs on the outboard wing hardpoints (400 kg), and two 1500 kg drop-tanks on the inboard wing hardpoints (3000 kg), increasing endurance to three hours and range to 3690 km. Alternatively, the inboard wing hardpoints can each carry a pair of 100 kg TL-6 IR-homing AAMs plus a 1000 kg drop-tank, freeing up the outboard wing hardpoints for decoy dispensers and EW jammer pods.

The plane was designed with Fire Fusion & Steel.
