Design of the Aircraft from [link]
main purpose is scouting/recon and small package deliveries, unarmed by default, but capable of being armed
extremely fast, light, manuverable but barely armored and vulnerable.
cockpit and internal components protected by light gravity field to counteract amplified g-force from extreme speed (this tech developed many years before this aircraft was developed in its setting's timeline)
Pilots of the seeker have also created a unique technique of "Drifting" where the seeker would be able to rotate up to a offset of 135 degrees horizontally without changing its vector.
Other techniques intentionally and unintentionally made possible with its unique design are:
- barrel rolls with/without vector change
- near instantenous 180 degree turns at maximum atmosphere velocity in rapid succession
- flying in reverse for brief moments
Its extreme manuverability and speed completely offsets its vulnerability, but the extreme physical and mental stress imposed on all its pilots in order to execute the required maneuvers (excluding a select few) are too severe to maintain continuous operation.
to my embarassment i have not figured out how it would land itself back into the hangar ~lol D:
if you'd like to make suggestion as to how to achieve that through either not changing the design at all or changing the design to create a unique method of landing (not landing itself onto a landing strip with landing wheels/gear) feel free to leave some in the comments
~Feedback is appreciated~
