ENA VL-900 Firewave
The new naval VTOL strike fighter
About this creation

The ENA VL-900 (also know as “Firewave”), is a supersonic vertical takeoff/landing (VTOL) fighter aircraft, initially built by the "Vila Disparador" Airplane Factory as "VL-800 Fireline” and later rebuilt by “ENA” as a new fighter, with more powerful engines, increased range, bombload and a large AESA multi-mode radar.

When the "Fireline VL-800" entered in service, it was soon discovered that it lacked the speed, range and firepower required for naval operations. While a more capable aircraft to replace the VL-800 was not created, it was decided to ask to “ENA Company” to refurbish the VL-800 into a new fighter, as the company had already done before with the Nemesis and its conversion to the Stealth fighter "Thanatos”. ENA withdrew the wing of the VL-800 by replacing it with a delta wing canard type, introduced a new more aerodynamic nose with a powerful AESA radar and the most important development off all, replace the main engine for a different model three times more powerful. The new fighter soon proved to be a 5 stars fighter for the Imperial Navy and the Fuzileiros Imperiais (Imperial Marines).

Apart from having a vectorable engine in the rear used for flight, two smaller and less powerful engines are housed in the front portion of the aircraft and used for take-off, landing and some combat maneuvers.
All three engines are controlled through an interlinked digital system, which is capable of controlling both engine start-up as well as modulating the thrust of all three engines during landing and hovering flight. Twin tandem reaction control jets are positioned at the wingtips, while a swiveling yaw jet is positioned under the nose.


The Firewave will probably be replaced by a new Stealth VTOL in the near future, probably a VTOL version of the new Gryphus Stealth fighter.

Quoting JS Can I like the colors, but it looks a bit frail or maybe the scale is off a little.
I tried to evolve the fighter as much as I could, while keeping as many previous parts I could. Therefore, it has some problems, but I still like it! ^^

Quoting claw paradox i think you should use SNOT wings next time for a smoother, less cluttered look. nice weapons!
I know, but the problem is that dark blue bricks are very rare and expensive. Thanks!
