About this creation
The LAF-1 Lightning is a Light Assault Fighter designed to be the main offensive spearhead in air attacks. Its main asset is its maneuverability, which is second to none. It is also fast, but not as fast as it is maneuverable. Both of the engines are thrust engines, they donít use afterburners. In other words, the engines donít inject fuel into the thrust. This means the thrust engines wonít produce as much thrust, but it also wonít produce as much heat, which makes it the LAF-1 almost immune to heat-seeking missiles.
For firepower, the LAF-1 can be armed with up to four missiles and two Electrically Charged Projectile Cannons (ECPC). The ECPC shoots electrically charged copper pellets with lead cores. These pellets have an extremely high electric charge in them, and are thus extremely hot. The lead gives the pellets some weight and momentum when hurtling through the air, thus aiding the pellet in ripping though metal.
