Al-Y-Li alloy? What the heck would you use that for?

Be careful: engineering Nazi.

Used in various engine components, along with low temperature parts of the airframe. Most notable aircraft for using it... is the F-35 Lighting II lol
The Shuttle external tank was made out of a similar material, Al-Li alloy due to its light weight. Al-Li is also used in many commercial aircraft and helicopters.

Fair enough. Sounds hard to machine and terrifically expensive... the wonders of the military industrial complex.

Indeed.
Most of it is used in the "cold" section of the engines, along with a few internal spars around the engine and landing gear for strength and lightness.

Yeh, not something you throw around liberally. Love your designs, btw, if I haven't said that before. Your Saber II is prime jealousy material for war-machine buffs everywhere.
