Lieutenant Soren "Tex" Ericsson was a mercenary from New Denmark who flew his B-3 Loki for the East-Vietnamese colonial airforce in the war over the South German Ocean.
The Loki, part of a new generation of fighter designs, was wickedly fast but this speed was gained at the expense of maneuverability. However, its lightning fast dives and climbs, coupled with a large heavy weapons arsenal, made the Loki a formidable ground attack aircraft.
About this creation

From left to right: a rack of five laser guided Vulcan rockets, four medium caliber machine guns (two in each wing root) customised to fire at twice their production rate, an experimental - and temperamental - rail gun, and a heavy cannon.

Quoting David Roberts
A very original design. I think that the stack and staggered engines look brilliant. Where are the tail pipes though? I like the back story too, especially the mix of countries.
Thanks! You're the first to mention that the engines don't work in any conventional way. The planes with big propellor-style intakes don't actually have propellors, and even the ones that look like jet engines don't have any kind of exhaust. I guess they must have develloped some other some other type of propulsion.
I'd been thinking that if I had time I'd start writing a history of the war of the South German Ocean :)
