Can anyone give me, or point to, some solid information on the fighter planes in Yukikaze? For example, the great big fin that the Super Sylph has. What's it for? Any info would help. My online searches are only getting me synopses of the novels and images.
If you don't like the news then go make some of your own.
No problem Tachyon. To answer your question specifically about the Super Sylph's fin, it's called a TARPS (Tactical Airborne Reconnaissance Pod System). Depending on the mission, it can be configured with cameras, infrared sensors, imaging radar, or multi-band ESM (Electronic Support Measures - used to detect, intercept, identify, locate, record, and/or analyze sources of radiated electromagnetic energy for the purposes of immediate threat recognition). Very versatile.
