Stringbag (Two seat version)-Class Biplane

design by Idiot/Savant

A two seat version of the Stringbag, used for artillery spotting, light bombing, and as a heavier fighter. Like its smaller counterpart, the Stringbag two-seater is limited to daylight missions, and those only in good weather. And again, there is no room for parachutes.

The plane was designed with Fire Fusion & Steel.
