The Fletcher Aero Corporation had been the main contractor and supplier of aircraft to the Atlantean Navy since the First World War. In 1940 the Canard designs were to be fitted with jets. This project was handed over to Francis Wattle who had been testing jet engines since the early 1930's. The fighter variant was to be fitted with a single jet engine producing 3500lb of thrust. The bomber variant had two 2500lb thrust engines.

With the engines fitted I figure about 480-500mph with very quick handling reactions for the fighter. The bomber I think would make approximately 390-400mph.

I kept the single gun turret on the Albatross to match what was carried on the US Avenger types during this period.
