A-16C Scooter

Auto Credit Based on BaconRoll's Join My Air Force Challenge!

After the large success of the A-4 Skyhawk, The WIAF (Wright Isles Air Force) wanted their own lightweight CAS Fighter. Contracts were hard to come by so the WIAF designed their own, designated the A-16C. The Airframe was built completely new and came out almost better than the A-4. The nose cone features an advanced IR tracking sensor for rapid acquisition of the two Guardian Missiles. The wing roots contain the two 20mm autocannons. The underside has three strengthened pylons for heavier munitions such as nine Boom50s. The A-16C was designed to be compatable with the WIN (Wright Isles Navy) Aircraft Carriers, complete with a tailhook and launch bar. The nose also houses an extendable refueling probe. For emergency landings, the tail has a parachute hatch to quickly decelerate. Though not intentional from the start, the A-16C has very fast turn rates and can even out-maneuver the dreaded Snowstone SAM sites!

    @ChiChiWerx Thanks for the input. I usually disable mass/drag on blocks that are off-center or cosmetic. With the trim/flaps, I set them to the same axis mostly because I haven't yet mastered the art of custom rotator based flaps yet. They kind of work but setting the elevator trim with it brings the aircraft airborne faster. At the end of the day, it's just simpleplanes. It works, and it's fun. Someday I hope to build a realistic airliner or something with complex multi-part flaps. When it comes to the fuel, I just wanted to give it a nice bit so I can fly for extended periods of time on Multiplayer. I'm still working my way to building better planes but I'm glad you enjoyed this one!

    Well, I generally like it, I especially like the creativity and precision when it comes to the ailerons, the work on the rudder and the landing gear. I do have several inputs, if you'll humor me: Doesn't need near unlimited fuel, or the negative empty weight, really. Also, the trim and flaps being interconnected. You might want to stack two rotators on top of each other, one set to pitch, the other to trim. Other than those two gripes, this is great fun to fly. I also have to admit the Scooter is one of my favorite airplanes.

    @Texasfam04 Thanks! If Landing Gear and maybe weapon bay housing is what you're looking for, you'll be in for a treat. I'm working on a little something and it should be out by the end of the month or early December.

    @BaconRoll Sorry for the lack of correct colors. I already had most of it built with this color scheme so it just fit the aircraft best.
