Description: The White Falcon is  Spectrum ATF or Advanced Tactical Fighter, piloted by the Angels. An ultimate all-around attack aircraft, the Falcon is a high-speed fighter plane powered by two of the very latest Halo pulsejets, with multi-step afterburners.  State-of-the art designed wing-tip geometry and variable multi-plane flaps make the Falcon  a supersonic strike fighter with uncanny speed and agility, that can outmanoeuvre any other known fighter plane.  
Because of  the incredible forces generated by the supersonic speeds and turning ability of  the Falcon, the Angel pilots need to wear specifically designed and fitted G-suits for their protection against G-forces in flight.
Armament comes in the form of twin 30mm Tempest cannons, front and rear, firing titanium-tipped ammunition. Stowed within the main fuselage of the Falcon,  a variety of air-to-air and air-to-ground missiles can be fired through internal tubes at any target.  
In the case of an emergency, the front portion of the plane, including the front canard wings, can disengage from the main body and become a self-powered escape pod. In the unlikely event of this pod failing or being damaged, there is still an ejector seat.
The White Falcon is a development of the Angel Interceptor, with an increased flight ceiling (required after the deployment of skybase whose normal cruising height was above the flight ceiling of the Angel Interceptor), improved manueverability, and increased weaponry.

It's a cutey isn't it.

I tried to balance the fact that the stated speeds and altitude range are far higher than those that Air Speeders (and ever starfighters) are capable of, by giving it only limited ammunition. The Angel Interceptor is more balanced than this one, but apart from speed, it doesn't have huge advantages really.
