Polikarpov I-163 Ramboski

Auto Credit Based on Othawne's Game Key / Bi-Plane Challenge! (CLOSED)

My fictional build. Based on the concept of the Polikarpov design bureau enlisting the help of a defecting Blohm and Voss designer, the Polikarpov I-163 came to being, equiped with an upscaled more powerful version of the Shvetsov ASh-62 engine, a similar design frame to the normal Polikarpov designs but now with the larger size to accomodate the second pilot and rear defensive gunner.

It has a similar cockpit orientation to late war experimental designs from the Blohm and Voss design team while having a tail and fin combination similar to an me110. As a mid-war bi-plane it is slow but manoeverable (fun to fly).

Controls are simple, trim for the elevator and AG3 enables the rear guns (AG8 disables roll and pitch for while you are using the guns)

    @Type2volkswagen things I didn't end up doing due to being close to part count limit, was going to have opening panels showing inner workings etc.
