- ―Harry's description of this plane in the shop.
The Mitsubishi F-1 (Sometimes nicknamed "Supersonic Rei-Sen", "Rei-Sen" being the Japanese term for the famed A6M5 Zero) is Japan's first domestically developed and built supersonic military jet. Although resembling the Jaguar, this craft is independent from that (though it uses the same engines). The aircraft was primarily suited for anti ship warfare, though it was also developed to be a trainer aircraft. It was introduced in 1978, and had an impressive service life of 28 years, being retired in March of 2006. Seventy seven were built. This aircraft only appears in Airforce Delta Strike, where it is only usable by Brian Douglas.
As noted, this aircraft bears a mild resemblance to the Jaguar. The aircraft has decently large wings, low underslung engines located beneath the stabilizer, and a single vertical stabilizer punctuated by two rear wings.
One of Brian's better aircraft, and that's actually somewhat sad since it's not... Overly impressive otherwise. The aircraft has decent mobility, good defenses, and a reliable special weapon. It's a tad slow, but it still has afterburners, so it's not overly slow. As Harry notes, it's quite good at anti ship combat due to the fact it has ASMs. It'll serve you fine until you unlock the Su-34.
