The RAF aircraft are all identical to the shipborne aircraft and are regularly deployed on-board the carriers also.
It has been successful in gaining several major overseas orders such as the German navel air force the Marineflieger and is used by several other commonwealth airforces notably Australia were it beat the highly rated  F-18 in a fly off .

Kit's Rule 1 ) Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage
Kit's Rule 2) The backstory can always be changed to suit the model

The humpback gives it a really aggressive appearance!  :thumbsup:

Must, then, my projects bend to the iron yoke of a mechanical system? Is my soaring spirit to be chained down to the snail's pace of matter?
