Convair NX-2 "CAMAL"

38.5k asteroidbook345  7 days ago
Auto Credit Based on HellWARRIOR's Cold War Challenge

Thanks to ChiChiWerkx for helping with the nose wheel's weird steering!

Act. 1 - Turn on turbojet boosters (for supersonic flight at altitude and extra takeoff power)
Act. 2 - Braking parachutes
Act. 3 - Bomb bay

The Convair NX-2 was Convair's proposal for the US Air Force's WS-125 nuclear powered bomber project. The idea was to make a bomber that could both travel at supersonic speeds, but retain the range needed for a heavy bomber. The NX-2's armament would have consisted of one 10,000lb bomb, but had it been produced other armaments would have been made available. This NX-2 replica features one of my smoother airfoils, as well as the best landing gear I've made thus far. It also features a B53 nuclear bomb built off of my Mk. 17.
