Demon I.A.S. by welcometothedarksyde Demon I.A.S. by welcometothedarksyde
Improved from the earlier Banshee design. This production VTOL Demon is optimized for stealthy ground attack. The profile was minimized to reduce radar return, doing away with things such as wings, or tailplanes. Opting instead for a lifting body design, and thrust vectoring. The turbofan's bypass air is diverted to 360 degree rotating nacelles. Therefore the pressurized air can be use to control the orientation of the aircraft. Weapons are housed in an internal bay to reduce radar return
*This is something I've been working on for about a month. It's gone through several stages of development that made this final design. The original was largely the same safe for the cockpit and rear end. I also have a light-up brick that I can easily install in the cockpit, but I can't find it

Reminds me of blade runner a bit...

I've never seen that movie, and this design wasn't based on anything

Even better!

Please don't take "..." out of context, friend.

It's a relatively common Technic piece. I seem to recall that the blue Container Truck came with one in black

I love the technojargon. It almost makes you sound like you know what you're talking about.

I do :XD: I'm really interested in airplanes so I've studied much about them. I can't say that this thing would actually work, but in theory it should

Fact: You strap big enough ramjets onto something, and it'll travel in the direction you point it in regardless of how aerodynamic it isn't.

I find that fact dubious, as ramjets require mach 3+ speed to compress air using other air. Besides, this thing would use high bypass ratio turbofans
