Consolidated Vultee XP-81 Silver Bullet

47.9k Hedero  14 days ago

Credits to BogdanX for letting me use his FT code for the nose landing gear steering. Follow him and upvote his aircraft!

The Consolidated Vultee XP-81 is a development of the Consolidated Vultee Aircraft Corporation to build a single seat, long range escort fighter that combined use of both turbojet and turboprop engines. Although promising, the lack of suitable engines combined with the end of World War II doomed the project.

Controls

1=NavLights
VTOL=Flaps
G=LandingGear

Armament

6 WingGuns (I couldn't find any evidence of any other weapons)

[DISCLAIMER] This aircraft may be slower than the real aircraft, however, I have tried my best to replicate a more realistic speed. But I do not know how to increase speed, but keep a good acceleration. The aircraft does however feature scaled proportions. I got as close as I could to a realistic size.

    Yeah I tried tomake it takeoff a bit slower than normal because I didn't know what was realistic and what wasn't. But hey, I'm learning I guess lol. But thanks for the support my dude!@ChiChiWerx

    Well, it doesn’t fly unrealistically, though it accelerates like a snail and it’s not fast enough (to your credit, you already pointed this out). It takes off and lands nicely, it has a lot of wing, probably more than the RL plane, which makes it float on landing. But it does look good, is a very interesting subject and doesn’t skew ridiculously towards any extreme and the insignia are fantastic! Nice work!

    Oh dude I was literally kust considering an xp-67. However, the shapes of the wing and fuselage were just strange anough that I didn't think that I could replicate it nicely. However, I might eventually have the courage to take a shot at it!@asteroidbook345

    I scaled it to as close to the right size as I could. Check the real life size.@DragonLady
