Can we not use a faster more maneuverable platform for A2A interception.
Does anyone here have any dimensions available for the 129? I would appreciate it as I want to kitbash a 1/72 scale model of it using the Italeri's MQ-1 as a base.

All I'm after is the fuselage Diameter, Wing span and length. Just the basics.
