This is a design study for a future multi-role attack aircraft for the Alliance in the Destroyermen series. I went with a bi-plane design because with the low engine power available, you need a large wing to lift a heavy weight like a torpedo & carry it any distance. A large wing takes up valuable deck space on a carrier & folding wings add complexity & weight. So to save space & still have a large wing, I went bi-plane. To reduce drag & still be structurally sound, I went with a Beech Staggerwing setup & anchored the wings to the fuselage, with the outer struts being the engine nacelles. The outer wing panels are a cantilever setup similar to the P1C "Fleashooter". The Staggerwing was first flown in 1932, so our heros will have some familiarity with the design concept. This should be a strong but still quickish plane and capable of lifting any of their current ordnance. I also designed it to be multi-role, as a torpedo bomber it is quite capable of lifting bombs & she just needed some dive brakes to be an excellent dive bomber. With a reduced ordnance load & a centerline drop tank, she has the extended range for scouting also.
