I wonder what is meant by 'Long Altitude' and it says turboshaft but I can't see any propeller or ducted fan anywhere ---

It is Russ-lish?

Obviously something of an extraction.  The intakes render it subsonic and the projections on the wingtips do not help its RCS unless they hold some "cloaking device" or similar technology.  I think I'll pass.

I'll agree there.  'Twould take some modifications, but could be a good basis for one.

Yep, definitely see potential for sci-fi project.  I'll list it as a "maybe," after I get a Flying Dorito A-12.

I could see it either as an accompaniment for the F-302 in Stargate SG1 or perhaps as a Martian fighter.

Obviously. Just look at the name. Turboshaft Engine Interceptor  - it's a TEI-Fighter!  ;D :icon_beer:

Actually, some TIE Interceptor solar panels wouldn't look to bad on this.

It IS a little more streamlined than the usual Imperial product...I think "Long Altitude" is a mistranslation of "High Altitude" ( Stratospheric, donchaknow. )
