A-4X Ultra Skyhawk 3D Model
Inspired by the Douglas A-4 Skyhawk attack fighter and its upgraded variants in foreign service still in use today, KSC’s Ultra Skyhawk is a low cost, high performance SSTO flight trainer capable of Mach 5.2. It is powered by 2 CR-7 RAPIER engines with optional closed cycle mode for “edge of space” operations.

The original aircraft’s streamlined profile is replaced by a beefy high capacity “space tuna” fuselage, providing vastly increased capacity for internal fuel and optional oxidizer for sub-orbital missions. The Mk1 cockpit is also retrofitted with a heat-pipe cooling solution, ejecting waste heat outboard of the primary air intakes. A modest array of structural parts around the intakes and engines, plus an added ventral stabilizer provide some measure of area ruling, decreasing transonic drag and improving high Mach stability.
