The Grumman X-29 was an American experimental aircraft that tested a forward-swept wing, canard control surfaces, and other novel aircraft technologies. The X-29 was developed by Grumman, and the two built were flown by NASA and the United States Air Force. The aerodynamic instability of the X-29's airframe required the use of computerized fly-by-wire control. Composite materials were used to control the aeroelastic divergent twisting experienced by forward-swept wings, and to reduce weight. The X-29 first flew in 1984; two X-29s were flight tested over the next decade.

In the near future, Arrow flew the X-29A on his first mission upon his return to H.A.W.X. Project, Smoke on the Water.

NotesEdit

  • In real life, only two were built for testing, not combat.
  • It is not one of the required fighters in the first game's campaign.
