F-21E Super Viserion

Yes, I do realise that the main gear was misplaced, I am very sorry about this problem as I only found out about it hours after uploading.

F-21E Super Viserion

The F-21E is an advanced fifth-generation semi-stealth multirole fighter. The F-21 was developed by Maxwell in order to supplement and eventually replace the F/A-56 that is currently in service with the Royal Emmerian Air Force. The F-21 first flew on 7 July 2020, and it entered service in November 2028.
The F-21 was designed to replace the aging fleet of F/A-56 Alpha and Charlies in service with the the REAF, the F/A-56s were deemed too expensive to maintain, and since the economic crisis of 2018, the REAF received a budget cut that severely limits it’s ability to maintain the fleet of F/A-56s. In response, the Joint Chiefs of Staff started a program to develop an aircraft that will replace the F/A-56s. The program was called the Tactical Strike Fighter (TSF) Program. The goal of this program was to develop a semi-stealth multirole fighter that has the same qualities of the F/A-56.
The F-21E is an upgrade to the previous F-21 models, namely the Alpha, Charlie and Delta models. The F-21E features a more powerful Rolls Royce T109 turbofans, more advanced avionics, and an AN/APG-98 Active Electronically Scanned Array.
The F-21E is armed with a single 20mm M71A2 mounted on the starboard side with 220 rounds of ammunition. The F-21E has external hardpoints to carry missiles, bombs, and drop tanks at the expense of increased radar cross-section, and thus reduced stealth. The F-21E also has an internal weapons bay with four weapons stations.

    Can you help me prepare a screenshot for my new aircraft ?

    @BillyTheKid1138 To be fair, the pitch is exaggerated, but the roll rate is realistic.

    This is an incredible plane! Turns extremely quick, but the roll rate is very slow. Can you bump up the roll rate a bit, so it can keep up with its incredible pitch rate? I would do it but I have no idea how to edit these kind of planes. I think it would be a great improvement.

    Might I also add that the typhoon needs extra pitch authority due to it's relaxed stability, to broaden the range of safe AoAs

    @BogdanX yes, the typhoon does have elevons but they are nothing like the effectiveness of a fully moving tail. And since the wing shape of this plane looks nothing like a typhoon, I'd consider the Su-34 a much better comparison.

    @WNP78 nope, EF-2000 has also big elevons, from wing tip to root, doesn't rely only on canards
    and the observation was for majority of his planes (check his list), most rely only on canards

    @BogdanX EF2000 relies entirely on canards for elevator authority whereas this also has a tailplane, so they are not needed as big. See the Su-34 for instance.

    Since you asked for criticism:

    1. Visuals: not much to criticize here, plane is beautiful. Not much eye-candy crap, overall shape looks plausible
    2. Construction: quality of paneling, nudging, fuselage lines, decorations/text is good. Fuselage is smooth. Parts count is acceptable, even is double as i use. But i am the guru of the mobile friendly builds.
      Problem: Main Landing Gear is positioned to far behind COM. It belongs somewhere at the half length of the main wings.
      Problem2: You used inlets for flaps and ailerons, you should use them for rudders too, i don't like those curved shapes.
    3. Functionality: Here are some issues: Roll is too slow, pitch is exaggerated even for 5th gen fighter.
      A Su-27 or a F-15 can do a complete 360 degrees sustained turn in 13-15 seconds. Your plane can do it in like 5 or 6 seconds.
      Landing is easy. Flaps max angle is not enough: it has to be at least 25-30 degrees.

    Btw: i see you like canards... you build them too small to be effective. I compared yours with Eurofighter and there are like 60% as they should
