The Goblin wasn’t so much a jet fighter as it was a flying roll of toilet paper. It was so pathetic and turd-shaped it could barely fly on its own, and had to be carried by a larger, more competent aircraft.
That’s right, the Americans got bored of dropping bombs on people and instead decided that they wanted to drop little airplanes on their enemies. Unfortunately however, on the test flight, the pilot nearly killed himself trying to fly the goblin back into the actual plane, because you know, they didn’t even equip it with landing gear. We’re pretty sure the Goblin was designed to punish pilots who lost their actual jet fighters in battle.
