Scorpion tales

Now, whether or not it ever racks up any sales is a slightly different matter, but it’s not every day that you see an all-new (budget) strike aircraft unveiled, so, Textron AirLand’s new Scorpion jet is interesting on that basis alone. It’s not hideous, although nor is it a thing of beauty - it does appear to have scavenged components from other programmes and bolted them all together into some sort of Frankenplane. First flight is pitched for the end of the year. Note the lovely touch of the Stars and Stripes on the tailfin.
