This page is referring to the mock-up for a finalized X-32 that appears in Airforce Delta Storm and Airforce Delta Strike. If you're looking for the original test bed for the X-32, see JSF X-32. If you're looking for the version of this plane with V/TOL capabilities, see X-32B.
"The X-32 that emerged as the winner of the Joint Strike Fighter competition took on the name of F/A-24 and boasted stealth and vertical take-off and landing capabilities. This jack-of-all-trades proved a master of none, though, and only a few were produced. Its flaws were fixed, and performance enhanced, and it was re-christened the F-25."
Airforce Delta Storm manual description excerpt, page 27.
"It looks cute, but this light strike craft with advanced stealth technology has the goods. And it's the A, not SVTOL model."
Harry's description of this plane in the shop.

The Boeing X-32A (Given the fictional name of F/A-24A Acorn in Airforce Delta Storm) was a proposed fighter for the Joint-Strike Fighter program, developed by Boeing. However, it would lose to Lockheed Martin's X-35, which would become the controversial (at the time) F-35. This particular model is a mock-up for the finalized product. It appears in Airforce Delta Storm and Airforce Delta Strike, being usable by Ken Thomas in the latter.

Design

The X-32A is a fairly rotund craft, having large wings, a single rear engine, and two vertical stabilizers. The craft itself is fairly bulky, but that does lead to increased defense compared to other fighters, in-game at least.

Performance

Airforce Delta Storm

A big, bulky craft. Despite its bulkiness, the mobility stat isn't horrible. This is a decent craft, somewhat hamstrung by how late in the game its unlocked. It's got incredible defense, and decent other stats all around. Sadly, its positioning in the game hurts is viability overall. Its stats are all superior to the JSF X-32, so make of that what you will.

Aiforce Delta Strike

A fairly below-average craft for Ken. Stats aren't terrible all around, but it's fairly lackluster compared to his more better planes, like the Su-27LL-UV(PS) and the S-55 LFS, both of which you'll have unlocked by this point anyways. The internal bomb-bays aren't doing this plane any favors, either. Skip it.

Trivia

  • According to the manual, the F/A-24A has V/TOL capabilities; however, this is not the case in-game.
  • In addition, the manual also states that the X-32 won the Joint Strike Fighter competition; this would be proven incorrect, as the X-35 would win the competition.
