SF-352 by TheXHS SF-352 by TheXHS
The SF-352 is a parasite microfighter. Extra-large turbofan engine in a small fighter give him excellent thrust-to-weight ratio.

I like the lay out, only issue with that large fan is no rear view. I like the rudder right behind the fan too, that'd give you great reaction from that surface!

Cool design!
Fan right in front of the tail surfaces effectively gives it thrust vectoring: very maneuverable. Can it carry missiles?

I see some brackets that must be for launching or handling. For docking with the carrier, there must be a bigger hook or prod. Maybe it is retracted somewhere in the top part.

They're probably also pretty cheap given high-bypass turbofans are mostly airliner engines. Not going to be all that fast though with such a high bypass ratio. I love how wikipedia makes me look omniscient.

It's only subsonic aircraft, and mostly airliner have maximum speed nearly 850-900 kmph)

They look like fast submarine attack crafts.

i like it ... though the bulbous back end makes it seem a tad unmanuverable ... as such i'd likely want to purpose it to be a high speed precision bomber ... meant to get in, take out a target, and get out with minimal exposure ... using it's power to weight ratio to generate speed that would make it difficult to get a bead on before it was in and out of range
