History

The Biao, or Dart in English, is a sixth generation Chinese fighter and at the edge of being completely obsolete. It is however still quite common around the world though during the Early Space Era. They still fare favorably to to advanced western aerospace fighters like the Sunglider Aerospace Fighter as long as they are in low altitude. At higher altitudes they cannot maintain their speed and maneuverability edge.

Physically they are fast, agile, and have good endurance at lower altitudes. It makes use of dual scram-jet engines in later variants, but even so the engines are much faster and more powerful at lower altitudes and cannot reach orbit on their own. For weapons it has two primary missile bays armed with six-pack launchers and two single shot missile bays, all of which are behind covers.
