TL-5 2T Fighter

design by Idiot/Savant

A fairly basic low-tech fighter aircraft, armed with eight wing-mounted 7mm machine-guns. The aircraft is usually used as an interceptor, but its underwing hardpoints also allow it to be used as a light fighter-bomber. Common variants increase firepower by replacing some or all of the machine-guns with 15mm cannon.

The plane was designed with Fire Fusion & Steel.
