With the need for a aircraft to fill the gap of our Air Force, VDS now presents the MCAP. The MCAP, or Medium Combat Aerial Platform, is a multi-functional airplane that is rugged and proven. Designed after the successful American AV-8B Harrier, the airframe is a well-built design that can take a few hits as well as deliver a few itself. The wings are angled as to provide additional lift during take-off and while climbing. Also, the MCAP is VTOL capable and almost fully automated while utilizing that capability. Most of the nose is filled sensor arrays and other electronic devices. The aircraft can lift 14,520 lbs. of munitions. MCAPs are generally armed with 7.62 Mk.II LRMG (7.62 Mk.II Light Rotary Machine Gun) and NVG package. The MCAPs are usefully found with the men on the ground providing air support; thus, giving it many names. Some being: "Super Sea Harrier", "Horned Owl", and "Lovely Dove".

No air-to-air missiles seem to be apparent, and I'm not sure of how well VTOL aircraft perform as air superiority fighters. Would this be considered one, or just a ground support aircraft?
If you notice, there are no attached armaments whatsoever; there additional just like all craft. VTOLs have their faults, but it is proficient in air-to-air combat.
Very detailed. I'm not liking the bottom of the jet, with it's large size, but the rest of the plane came out great! The angled wings are a very nice affect, and the cockpit's terrific. Good job on this one, you really are such a talented builder.

BTW, when is your b-day (I know it is soon)? I want to make a birthday moc for you, if that's alright.
The 21st. And thank you for the compliments and thoughtful idea. I would have done the same for you, but my family has a habit of wanting to do things when I wanna do something thoughtful. >_> Some excuse, right? Say "no". <_<
