Python Patrol

The Conquest X-30 is a single-seat, twin-engine forward swept wing air superiority fighter, and is used by the G.I. Joe's top-secret U.S. Air Force support squadron. The Conquest is designed solely for air combat and carries no air-to-ground weaponry (although its "Light Sparrow" missiles can be fired against ground targets). It is armed with four "AIM-12 Light Sparrow" missiles, carries 11,000 pounds internal fuel and two 350 gal. external fuel tanks. Its gun armament consists of two 25 mm revolver cannon. Despite its higher series number, it is succeeded by the Phantom X-19. It uses square jet engine nozzles that, curiously, do not appear to be thrust-vectoring.

History

Python-Conquest

Python Patrol Conquest X-30

The Conquest was first deployed in 1986, where it squared off against the Cobra Firebat. In G.I. Joe Special Missions it was used to fight against the Night Raven. Slipstream would continue using the Conquest X-30 until 1989 when Darklonia managed to purchase several surplus Conquests. Cobra then used these Conquests in an experimental procedure that rendered the aircraft undetectable by radar. It became the primary fighting jet of the Python Patrol Cobra subgroup.

Despite its higher series number, The Joe X-30 is succeeded by the Phantom X-19.
