The Ramandu Linsang was a biplane fighter aircraft of the Allied States of Inutoland from the World War 1 period, introduced in late 1915.
The Linsang was one of the better small single-seat fighter aircraft of the Inutoland Air Force in the period, with a good rate of climb and a relatively high operational ceiling making it superb against enemy dirigibles. To this end, many Linsangs were fitted with two "Hot Arrow" incendiary rockets under the lower wing for attacking zeppelin-type dirigibles.
Its twin forward-firing 7.91mm Inuto calibre machine guns fired through the propeller arc, thanks to an Inutolander-developed interruptor mechanism which sychronised the firing of the weapons to the propeller's rotation.
The Linsang's controls were responsive and fairly light, enough that inexperienced fliers often had problems making the aircraft behave. It had the advantage of a very soft stall, though, being able to almost "hang on its propeller" to shoot upwards from the blind spot beneath an enemy's tail. Its one major issue was a structural weakness that manifested itself when the aircraft was put into too steep a dive. Though this was corrected in the late 1916 model Linsang, the Ramandu aircraft retained its reputation as an aircraft to dive cautiously in.
