"Check this out. Forward swept wings give it great handling at low speeds, It's experimental, but armed and priced to move."
Harry's description of this plane in the shop.

The Grumman X-29A is an aircraft that was developed to test forward-swept wing technology. Two were built, and were flown by NASA and the US Air Force. It was built in 1984, and it was flown and tested until 1991. It appears in the PAL and NTSC-J versions of Airforce Delta Storm and all versions of Airforce Delta Strike, where it is usable by Ken Thomas.

Design

Design wise, this craft is nearly identical to the F-20; same body and single-engined design. However, the biggest difference is the trademark forward-swept wings of the craft. Outside of that, the design is the same, however.

Performance

Airforce Delta Storm

An okay plane. It's unlocked near the end of the first chapter, but stats are just... Average across the board. If you know how to find hidden air bases, you can have the F-15S/MT, which is superior to this craft in all aspects. So... Despite being a PAL/NTSC-J exclusive, it's simply just inferior to planes you can have available at this point.

Airforce Delta Strike

A very decent plane for Ken. It's got great mobility and anti-air, and it's unlocked semi early on. However, it's let down by poor stats everywhere else. The Su-27LL-UV(PS) and S-55 LFS all but replace it when you unlock them. The only advantage this craft has over them is the fact this plane is a very slight increase in anti-air (compared to the S-55) and the fact it's a very small plane, allowing it to fit in small passages, such as in Up Stream. Still, the S-55 can basically do what this plane can do, but better, so... When that's unlocked, this plane will probably hit the benches.
