RAH-42 Snowfox

32.8k Freerider2142  6 months ago
Auto Credit Based on Typhoon03's Observation Helicopter Challenge (Closed!)

The RAH-42 Snowfox is a medium weight Reconnaissance and Attack helicopter.
Designed to engage both at top speeds or from a set point and remain in cover using it's targeting pod extension.

This helicopter is designed with a small coaxial rotor diameter for Urban navigation and confined areas of operation.

Custom opening and closing canopy!

This helicopter is 1:1 scale in simpleplanes.

This is my first official helicopter upload, It's made to be easy to fly.
But it will punish you if you lose control.

This is the Full version.
For lower part count version (MP), without secondary cockpit screens and sensor pod: Link to lower part count version

Custom Dual cockpit, Pilot is seated in front, Gunner is seated in back.

Custom Azimuth indicator for gun/camera horizontal angle.

Custom weapon systems:
30mm Cannon has a selection of HE or AP rounds with 1000 rounds each.
AGM Hellfire as main missiles (I set up the weight and scale to be closer to the real ones.. tho not perfect)

Speedometer is IAS from 0-245mph Vne.
This helicopter is fitted with dampening system to prevent forward flight above 245mph.

Activation groups:
1= Engine on + Cockpit open/close
2+8 = Cruise flight adjust throttle to control altitude.
3 = Turret and targeting pod on
4 = Missiles and targeting pod on, Missiles adjust pitch with VTOL for TopDown launching capabilities.
5 = extent targeting pod & gun Night vision.
6 = lights, NAV Lights and anti collision lights
7 = Autohover, recommended at low speeds
8 = Gyro to help with control, can increase stability in autohover.

VTOL+TRIM = Turret and gunner cameras control,
Lading gear- landing gear for taxi or rolling landing.

Camera-1 - Gunner cockpit view control with VTOL+TRIM.
Camera-2 - Gun View
Camera-3 - Pod View 1
Camera-4 - Pod View 2 night vision

I made a lot of custom parts for this, and I could add a lot more...
but It's already reaching 700 parts and more isn't really needed with this helicopter for me.

known issue: some gauges shake..
I fixed the ones that I wanted to fix, the rest shake to represent helicopter shaking..

    I would have tagged MediocrePlanes about this sooner
    But here is another tip:
    You see that little blue "submit" button, quit pressing it, Stop pressing it, take a deep breath, go read a book or something.
    I find it rather disappointing that users aren't able to get along.
    .

    @Tully2001 i'm not both of these sides which i'm wrong nor right
    I just want this drama to be resolved too.
    .

    Edit: All three of you are breaking the website rules
    "• Please, just be courteous." Move this conversation to Discord or some other platform. You are all respected members of this community and
    It would be stupid for me that jundroo would had hire me as a moderator just to give you strikes.

    @Tully2001 Yeah, that's why I posted the last post and noted that I'm not going to respond to any more posts about the subject.
    And after that I didn't respond to any more post about it.

    I asked you two to stop arguing and you simply ignored it and carried on. Sometimes doing the right thing is to just stop and ignore people provoking you. If people don’t understand you the first time the likelihood is that they won’t understand you the second time @Freerider2142

    @Tully2001 Why was I striked exactly?
    And why was my message deleted?!?!?!
    I was only defending myself, I could have pointed out that I'm from Israel and take the whole German ancestors to a different direction, and be a Total jerk about it!!

    I thought the comment section is made so players can respond and have a conversation about builds, If you want to prevent this, you should have banned @Zanbradcr3per from making any more posts.
    As you could clearly see where the conversation was heading!!
