The Zombite Fighters were used by the Zombites a mysterious tribe living in a lost pyramid.

It featured a normal turbojet with an extra turbo booster mounted under the fuselage.

The Zombite Fighter was armed with a laser cannon in the nose.

The series was designed by Gerry and Sylvia Anderson and first broadcast in the UK in 1965.

It would had been cool if the Zombites had made another appearance in Thunderbirds. Just imagine what if they had made an alliance with the Hood?   One fan imagine a TB fictionnal intro to imagine what if the Zombites returned. ;)  youtu.be/-OXoCB6BnTE

Ramjet fighter - It seems like something that makes sense, but never works out very well...

At the time, they only had a very limited idea about how ramjets actually worked.

These guys are using some pretty old tech, all that fighter is is a heavily modified F-104 starfighter. Nice work by the way.

Not old at all, but brand new cutting edge tech in 1965.  And thanks!

It's F-104 acestry is quite evident!
Claveworks's avatar
Exactly!  There is another fighter I am looking at which is suspiciously like a Saab Draken lol

It makes perfect sense though, in 1965 on a tight budget, why not adapt versions of the cool real fighters that were around then?

That and the 104 still looks like something out of sci-fi, all speed all sexy.  I am lucky to have gotten to see a flying demonstration of it some years back and it was amazing.

Just take a commercial model and stick some extra bits on?
