Mukha Class Hydrofoil

Anti-Submarine Boat

Here I present a very different kind of build, and the smallest seacraft I've built in a while. Fun fact I was originally building the original Sokol, only to realize the Ref I used was actually for the ship built off its hull. Thus we have it here! My first time doing an entire bow with Paneling, and it looks a bit rough but it came out alright.

Features

1)Real Hydrofoil Function: Uses modified wings to lift out of the water, maintains stability through those wings as well as proper weight distribution in the build. No Gyro!

2)Incremental Aiming System: Both guns use WASD in a manner that allows incremental adjustment of aim just like with VTOL and Trim, only with much greater precision and ease of use.

3)Anti-Submarine Torpedoes: My standard specialty, fully maneuverable and submersible weapons for killing submarines.

Basic Controls

1) Throttle: Throttle, go forward!
2) Yaw: Rudder steering.
3) VTOL: Hydrofoil control. Set at full until Hydrofoils break the surface, then set to half. Set to full in turns to keep them above the water.
4) AG1: 76mm AK-176
5) AG2: AK-630 CIWS
6) AG3: ASW Torpedoes
7) AG7: Activate Active Sonar
8) FireGuns: CIWS, Ship and Torpedo Sonar.
9) WASD for Gun Aiming and Torpedo Control

    @switdog08 It's as simple as using structural wings, setting them to allow control surfaces, and exploiting an element to where increasing the span of wings and scaling them down makes them still act like they're wide. Thus you can increase a wing's lift while keeping it to a certain size without losing that lift.

    Awesome!
    I've been thinking about how you would go about making a hydrofoil in SP
