The latest design out of the SOGP Corporation, the SOF-9 is a truly versatile fighter. Capable of both VTOL and super-sonic speed, the SOF-9 is very nice addition to the Sigma Octavus Airforce and Naval forces. The SOF-9A is the primary design, mostly used inland. The SOF-9B is slightly smaller than it's counterpart. The smaller size is meant for more fighters to fit on an aircraft carrier. Because of the simpler frame, the price of this fighter is fairly low.

Price: (APTO only special) $65,000,000 USD

(OOC: I watched a NOVA special on the US JSF program, and I thought this fighter was pretty cool.)
