XB-57 Vulture 'SledgeHammers'

24.1k agnanSatrio  2 months ago

The Lockheed XB-57 "Vulture" is a long-range, High Speed Cruise Missile Carrier aircraft that was operated by the United States Air Force. It was developed as a Phantom project from the Lockheed DPHSB aircrafts in the 2020s .

During Deep Penetration High Speed 'Bombing' Run, the XB-57 operated at high speeds and altitudes to allow it to outrace threats. If a surface-to-air missile launch were detected, the standard evasive action was simply to accelerate and outfly the missile (Actually you can do it in this game).

The Design of the XB-57 was Partly based on the SR-71. The XB-57 has been given several nicknames, including "Vulture", "Boat Busters", and "Sledge" , Living Up to it's Name (Sledge/SledgeHammer), It carried a Massive Amount Of Fire Power, Enough To Take Down Several Ships and Heavy Fortifictation At Long Range.

Controls:
-VTOL UP to Open Bomb bay door
(Warning, PItch is very sensitive in mid air, so turn Gently, or it will stall)
-DO NOT Launch Cleavers if the Bombay is closed, or it will be stuck in the Fuselage and Destroy your self
-DO NOT Do anything Ridiculous, or it'll have mind of it's own and Turning everywhere

Feel Free to leave me some critiques and Tips, it'll help me get much better at building planes, Thanks

    Nice, but it keeps damaging itself. When I tried to attack the USS Beast, it spiralled out of control.

    Cuz, it's not realy a "bombing run", more like missile salvos

    Looks very good. I think the hind landing gear could be moved to a more advantageous place on the plane. Perhaps custom landing gear would be nice, too. Otherwise, this is an excellent design! Makes me want to make a large aircraft, like a bomber or gunship.

    Is this supposed to be an SSTO in-universe? Also, why is the word "Bombing" in "'Bombing' Run"quotation marks? Other than that, great plane!
