A little side project I worked on I saw that the snakeEye configuration hadn't really been done before(at least with working fins) so I thought it would be neat to build!
Fins are fully functional with an xml modded dragScale of about 30.
Also is built to 1:1 scale and with accurate weight to the real thing.

Deploys the flaps, I recommend also setting this as the detachment group


In low level bombing a common issue is that both the bomb and the aircraft arrive at the target at close to the same time, a solution to this is the SnakeEye configuration , where 4 high drag fins are fitted into one end of the bomb which slow down its overall speed allowing the aircraft to pass by safely

Comparison

Feel free to use this, just credit me in the description
Is all I ask!

    @Destroyerz117 I expected them to have a gradient like the mod rank, but they're normal

    @ssenmodnar You sure could ;D
    If you want to make a mobile-friendly version, you can just do that too and make it a subassembly for example. Just remember to have the chute and the detacher on the same action group I guess...

    Wait, if this is possible, then couldn't you just put a parachute on a bomb and get the same effect?

    @ChisP just attach it too a pylon, since launching it is with a detach group having no specific attach point isn't an issue

    @Foxway Well, as the bomb contains fuselage parts (among many other things), the destroyers assume that you have just damaged yourself with the explosion (or perhaps just ejected and the parts accidentally blew up the carrier). The only time they WILL shoot you is when you damaged them or the carriers with a stock weapon.
