If the Testors F-19 was built, I agree it probably wont be an agile fighter but a good attack/recce platform for low level sneaky night missions. I do
admit with you from some points, The Monogram F-19 does look a bit 'Blagg' Even my dad said too, But i think it depends what paint scheme it is in.
Still like the Testors one but the Monogram one is more 'Fighter' like, The F-19 Specter looks better in black/dark gray becouse it looks more like
some 'Evil Satanic' looking aircraft, Im not a Goth or anything but i like these Evil designs. The kit was also availiable in a 'Glow in the dark'
Well they were both Delta winged designs with extremeley rounded corners and shapes and both had front canards
In my head and on a drawing pad, I have re-designed the 'Specter's Air-Intakes by adding the same 'Engine Hump' underneath and the existing one
will be sealed off, Add a more heavy duty F/A-18 nose leg to the front and it will use two F-16 type engines, There will be three variants
F-19 Interceptor- Carries Sidewinder/Sparrow/AMARAAM Missiles
F-19 Fighter- Same as above but with a M61A2 Vulcan Gun installed in nose for the event of 'Dog Fighting'
F-19 Strike Aircraft- Can be used as Attacker/Bomber or Strike Fighter and Has Rotating Weapons Pallet installed. It will be used for surgical
prescicsion air strikes like the mission of the F-117 Nighthawk
Some variants are 2 seaters and they can also be 'Carrier Capable' since it has a tailhook installed
Afterall, it may be sound the way it already was!
Never mind all that, This project specTOR sounds different to the F-19 project specTER, I believe it could be a stealth UCAV or some secret
attacker/bomber project that may have been abandoned or under process.
What is this F-24 then? It must be a fighter more than a UCAV with the F designation, Could it be another ATF in progress or a secret black
Waynos, was the fighter jet image on the other thread an existing aircraft or just a blagg made up fighter jet?
If it is real, it may likeley be an F-24.
There was also a concept of a Rockwell ATF, It was a nice smooth design and it had an F-16 cockpit too.
