    @IanTheCuberGamer sorry I forgot to reply.
    You have to set the xml value "firing Delay" for the rockets at a small amount of time, like 0.2 s.

    Really good but I feel it needs some more details like insignias decals and stuff to make it more realistic

    I like the look and clean lines a lot. Some nice features and obvious you did some good work here. Performance/flying characteristics pretty good...except for slight auto-roll that gets worse with speed. There are ways of correcting that, of course. Nice overall.

    1~ If you disassemble the whole engine section, you'll notice that there are both convention engines and a VTOL engine. The VTOL engine has the main characteristic of giving power "instantly", and in doing so it adds a realistic Afterburner effect.
    2~ You have to change its values via xml modding, or just using the Colour Editor mod by setting both the values "s" and "m" to 1.
    I hope I have been useful!

    I have two question.
    1)How do you make the jet engine to use maximum power when Group 1 is active??
    2)How do you make a fuselage Block reflex like a perfect mirror?

    @LeonardoEngineering stil, this is real world fiction. almost all aircraft manufactures give honor to previous aircraft with the the same name, and i know this obviously isnt a successor

    @MailboxIsMyGender not being a successor of the M.C.-200, no. I just liked the name because it fitted to the characteristics of the aircraft 😀

    It has auto roll. Other than that it’s great aircraft. Might wanna fix that auto roll though.
