World of Warplanes Supertest: U.S.A XF-85 – Fighter

The McDonnell XF-85 Goblin was an American prototype fighter aircraft conceived during World War II by McDonnell Aircraft. It was intended to be deployed from the bomb bay of the giant Convair B-36 bomber as a parasite fighter. The XF-85’s intended role was to defend bombers from hostile interceptor aircraft, a need demonstrated during World War II. Two prototypes were constructed before the program was terminated.

XF-85 will be introduced as a Tier IX in the near future, all stats are from Supertest and subject to change.

    1. It was a parasite fighter prototype. It’s wings folded, and it would fly in the bomb bay of B-29s and B-36s. It would hook up back again. It got scratched when they noticed refueling planes mid-air was a much more viable option

  1. I wish Wowp was like Warthunder in the aspect in that .50 cals arent completely useless and have a bonus of setting enemies on fire. As a player of both games, I just want a fun and balanced game.
