The Jackal is a fighter jet capable of combat in air and in space in Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare.
It was originally developed as part of India's space program in conjunction with the multinational Solar Associated Treaty Organization fleet and was classified as a tri-positional-wing multi-role combat aerospacecraft, but it is usually referred to as the "Jackal". Eventually, the Jackal became the primary air/space-interdiction fighter used by SATO.
The Jackal has a top speed of 3,231.13 mph (5,200 km/h) and its rocket boosters enable it to reach escape velocities of up to 49,709.70 mph (80,000 km/h), much faster than its opponent, the Skelter. The Jackal features flare countermeasures to counter incoming homing missiles as well as omnidirectional infrared countermeasure systems.
The Jackal is measured at 62 ft. (19 metres) long and 10 ft. (3 metres) high. It is capable of VTOL (Vertical TakeOff and Landing), and its variable-geometry wings and tail control surfaces can extend or retract based on the aerospacecraft's need, whether in atmospheric flight (ATMO), achieving orbit (LAUNCH), or in space flight (SPACE).
The Jackal is equipped with two 50mm cannons and two 30mm cannons and air-to-ground (AGM) missiles. Furthermore, its cannon armaments are mounted on a "modular articulating ballistic system", with retinal tracking pivots, meaning that the cannons will automatically aim according the pilot's line-of-sight while flying. Its tandem-seat cockpit has a maximum occupancy of a pilot and a copilot.
