"All right ladies and gentlemen, though I use the term loosely for you animals..."

*muffled laughter*

"This here is the McDonnel-Douglas F-58 Black Eagle Multi-role fighter, kindly purchased by the bean-counters at great cost to the American public for you to fly in. And lucky you, these particular birds are all made solely in Los Angeles."

*murmurs in the background*

"That's right, LA or otherwise as the City of Angels, the city that can crap out MDC materials in their sleep and make a sophisticated piece of military hardware in the same time it takes to make a car."

"So they're cheap, sir?"

"Yep. Lucky you."

Recording of briefing of newly reformed 57th Fighter Wing of the United States Air Force introducing the F-58 'Black Eagle' Multi-role Fighter.

McDonnell-Douglas F-58 'Black Eagle' Multi-Role Fighter

After the Hours, the United States military was in a sorry state as they attempted to replenish their badly battered forces after battles with Fictions and super-powered Post-Vanishing terrorists.

One thing that had become clear was that conventional military armor materials, especially those for aircraft, could not stand up to the threats that were now running rampant across the world and when Los Angeles re-entered the world stage with its ability to cheaply manufacture quality MDC materials, the United States Air Force jumped at the chance to get a better multi-role fighter and update their current fleet of aircraft.

McDonnell-Douglas is one of the military arms manufacturers that has an unlimited duration lease to the massive underground factory-geofronts of Los Angeles after the Silence ended and immediately got to work.

The result is the swept-forward F-58 Black Eagle, designed as a cheap and capable multi-role fighter that could make use of the advanced technologies that were now available and after intense competition, won the contract to supply the USAF with their new plane while also selling to interested buyers outside the country as well.

Nowadays, F-58 Black Eagles are everywhere and it is thanks to their STOL capabilities, ease of maintenance and modification and the cheapness of the aircraft that even the poorest air-force can afford at least ten of these planes and duplicates are everywhere but only the ones produced in Los Angeles have that distinctive black MDC skin when you peel off the paint.

-1x pilot

-MDC Nano-composite plating with Energy Absorbing Material nano-chemical lacing.

-2x General Electric GE-1900D Pulse Detonation Engines capable of top speeds of Mach 3.5, Mach 4 when unloaded.

-Military radio W/scrambler
-Military ECM and ECCM
-Satellite uplink
-Full visual suite
-Ejection seats
-Damage control
-Fire extinguisher
-Laser detector
-Laser Designator
-12 hours life support
-Navigation systems
-Cybernetic linkage
-Military radar with target ID and look down
-Radar detector
-Laser communicator
-Chaff and flare dispenser
-Multiple Targeting System
-Environment control

Due to the numerous duplicates out there, the following data is based on a production F-58 manufactured in Los Angeles.
-4x Lasers in 2 fixed forward mounts with twin-linked firing systems, comparable in power to a HLR-12 Kaneda Laser Rifle at full power
-or 2x 20mm Cannons in fixed forward mounts.
-10x Hardpoints; 1 on each wing-tip, 4 per wing and 4 belly mounts.

-Los Angeles Production Model: $4.9 million
-Duplicate planes: Typically run from $6.5 to $48 million depending on manufacturer and quality. The last price is based on an attempt by McDonnell-Douglas to produce an F-58 outside the city of Los Angeles with the same materials.

you do realize thats an SU-47...a russian plane in real life, right?

The SU-47 is a plane from the early nineties. AKIRA is a comic book from the early eighties. By that time, USSR developed their planes in absolute secrecy so most probably Katsuhiro Otomo had the Grumman X-29 in mind when he designed this plane, with some touches of F-14/F-15/F-16/F-18 from the same period.

So, apart from turning Kaneda's bike into the Nod Recon Bike in Tiberian Dawn, the boys at Westwood Studios possibly turned this jet into the Allied Black Eagle for South Korean in Red Alert 2. Gotta love their ideas more compared to the crap ideas the idiots at EALA thought off (which lead to the death of Command and Conquer series ;_; ).

Yes, I'm a CnC fan.
