Ho-XII/MB-2 Ka-Spirit
The Horten Ho-XII is the Luftwaffe's successor to the BatHawk. OR, for Diplomats and Legions, it is Egypt's deadliest aircraft design.
About this creation


MANUFACTURER: Horten Brothers Aircraft Company (circa 2035)/ Pet-Khaw Inc.

POWERPLANT: stealth turbojet with Cliffe/Weagle Magnetic Thrust Vectoring

MAXIMUM SPEED: mach 3

MANEUVERABILITY: well, it has magnetic thrust vectoring... so I'll give it a 10/10

CREW: pilot, on-board artificial intelligence control-assistance system (AICAS)

ARMAMENT: four internal air-to-air missiles, hardpoints for four more, two 20mm vulcan guns

NAVIGATION/TRACKING: radar, advanced aerial sonar, heat wave detection system


Designed to replace the inferior BatHawk, the Ho-XII is an advanced aircraft with advanced capabilities.

Its magnetic thrust vectoring allows it to perform insane maneuvers, while its three types of navigation/tracking systems can track any target. Maintaining all of this, it is also undetectable by radar and completely tailless.

Magnetic Thrust vectoring works by injecting iron pellets into the jet engine's combustion chamber. The pellets are immediately liquefied and mixed in with the thrust, thus magnetizing it. Electromagnets positioned behind the thrust nozzles concentrate the thrust and force it through somewhat small, ceramic-insulated nozzles. The magnets can then rotate and spin to vector the thrust in virtually any direction. Developed by myself and A.C. Weagle.

The shape is perfect, but the fuselage parts... eh. If you redid this I'm sure it would be pure awesomesauce.

This flying-wing type of platform will become common in air forces of the future, but alas, not in the form of manned fighters. Drones of this shape will replace our fly-guys and gals. A shame, but much safer (for the attacker that is!).

Probably one of the most epic flying wings ever, not including Awe's of course.

I would like to look at my comment in "By The Word of The Emperor." Oh, and a very awesome creation too.

In response to Cole: Flying wings (at least the Horten's WWII era jet) are extremely manouverable. By 2035, the technology used on the F-16 would probably be widely used to keep aircraft from falling out of the sky. Also flying wings are capable of extreme up-and-down maneuvering because they have very little drag. They are also extremely efficient feul/speed wise. Flying wings can also climb at amazing speeds due to their little resistance. All in all, very nice plane =)

She is a beautiful aircraft if I do say so myself!!!!

Quoting Architect of Vonthako Hey Cliffe, are you into Stargate at all? They have a lot of Egyptian-themed stuff in that sci-fi mythos. http://gateworld.net/
Looks very good, but also looks very complicated. Sorry, but I don't think I have the time to get into it...

Well It looks like a great fighter, you'll need it over the Prussian Skies, but I can hardly see it, you could use some more light when taking pictures. ~T

Quoting Dr. Spontaneous I see, I see. Still I can't help but think upon the injection there would be some flaw in coagulation upon the injection unit if the lead was indeed smelted down instantly, or nearly instantly, upon injection granted the heat would unbearably mold the lead around the said unit. Plus, during maneuvering the lead particles would be given some leeway and start coagulating yet again if they ever made it away from the injection unit. Plus ceramics generally shatter once they've been subjected to repetitive shock. Maintenance would be quite tedious. Don't get me wrong, your method is ingenious, but not entirely thorough in my opinion.
Thanks; I agree, it isn't a completely thorough system. Maintenance is tedious, and very very thorough. But it works!

Quoting Architect of Vonthako Love the flying-wing design! The overall look of the aircraft reminds me of the starfighters from Stargate. I'm guessing it can be used as an anti-ground bomber too?
Actually, that sounds like a great idea...

The photo makes this look like it has wooden wings, not that's there's anything wrong with that.

OOPS! SORRY SPONTANEOUS! I really didn't mean to delete that, I tried to reply to it.. Anyway, I forgot to mention the fact that the thrust is concentrated through small, ceramic-coated nozzles via the magnets. It greatly improves fuel efficiency as well as speed. And for the residual buildup? Again, the magnets guide the thrust through the resistant nozzles and make sure it doesn't stick to anything else. The nozzles are cleaned every eight days.

Quoting Cole Atelian Much better build than your past fighters but two comments. One flying wings are extremely unstable so any extreme manuver would send it into an uncontrolable spin, and two the machines guns on the outside of the fusalage would ruin the stealth profile.
I honestly didn't think the miniguns would ruin the stealth profile seeing as though they are round, small, and hugging the wings. And with MTV, stability is no problem. You can even split the thrust to stabilize the plane.

Quoting Dr. Spontaneous Vile am I? Anyhow, a great improvement from your simple modifications, but still a tad on the bland side. That's the problem with prefabricated parts. Also, Mach 4 would tear those wings apart. Oh, and would you mind enlightening me on your Magnetic Vector Thrust? All-in-all, a fair build.
Thank you, Dr. A very good review considering it's from you. :-) And, I changed those problems. I included an explanation of Cliffe/Weagle MTV, which I had planned but forgotten, and I reduced the speed to mach 3.
