Axis Airpower Up Close

Here is an enlarged and more detailed image of the new Axis aircraft.

I expect the cockpit will have a transparent bubble in the final version, and I imagine the cannon (long thing sticking out of it) will get more detail, like a more detailed flash suppressor or a muzzle break. Also in this image you can see the machine guns.

Looking at the basic shapes it seems to be the bastard stepchild of the Horten 229, and the Gotha 60c, the tail stabilizers are the real wildcard here, as they don’t resemble any of the German World War II jet fighters.

Who else is looking forward to air to air combat?
