A thrust vectoring jet engine with two modes. The first mode, Dry mode, is similar to that of the wheesley, with a bit more thrust. The second mode, Wet mode, uses the afterburner to produce thrust almost equal to the Whiplash Turboramjet. This can make it a good alternative for when you want something that can be controllable and doesn't need excessive heat shielding, but still need to be able to go incredibly fast if necessary, at the expense of increase fuel consumption.

Product description

A high performance jet engine with a variable geometry thrust vectoring nozzle and an afterburner for extra thrust.
