The YF-35 Warthog began life initially as an upgrade package for the VGF-14 Wildcat Variable Geometry Fighter. Ultimately the upgrade proved too heavy for the capacity of the airframe, so Earth Avionics initiated a development program for a new fighter designed around the planned upgrade to the older aircraft. The YF-35 was only designed with 2 modes of operation, Close-Combat Mode for Urban Warfare, and Fighter Mode, for air and space flight, but added an extra crewman for a dedicated Systems Officer along with the Pilot to help handle aircraft systems and sensors.
The Warthog quickly exceeded the expected test limitations and to the surprise of the Development Team, excelled in all areas of flight and systems trials. With such quick success, the UN Military agreed to fully fund extended testing and combat assessment, with the caveat that full transformation be added for Urban Combat. These alterations to the design would ultimately lead to the AVF-35 Advanced Variable Fighter, designed for Air and Space Superiority, and to rectify short-comings in the older VGF's currently in service.
After the YF-35 Warthog proved potent in trials, it was decided to give the green light to a limited pre-production run on the new Advanced Variable Fighter. Both the YF-35 Warthog and the new AVF-35 Wildhog have entered service with Elite UN Military JSOC (Joint Special Operations Command) units. The YF-35 operates for JSOC as a dedicated 2-mode Ground Attack/Support Aircraft, and the AVF-35 as a dedicated 3-mode Air/Space Superiority Fighter.
The YF-35 Warthog with its 2-man Crew makes an excellent ELINT/Deep Space Recon mecha, while the single-seat AVF-35 has received extra components to enhance its already fearsome Anti-Ship/Anti Spacecraft capabilities. When paired together with the YF-35 acting as a Forward Air Controller, the duo can make a truly devastating partnership. Also, due to the second Cockpit, the JSOC uses the YF-35 as an Advanced Trainer aircraft, for Pilots and Crews transitioning from the older VGF-14 to the new Wildhog AVF.
Eventually these 2 fighters will replace older VGF-14 aircraft in the UN arsenal, but for the time being only the Elite Special Operations crews get to Pilot these advanced types.
