Eurofighter C.16 Typhoon (block 5)

4,189 ZWLenning  9 months ago
Auto Credit Based on Mustang51's Help! typhoon tranche 1 -4

Typhoon of the Spanish Air Force, based on the first typhoon upgraded from Tranche 1 block 2 to block 5 delivered to the Spanish Air Force.
The typhoon itself is a fast, highly agile multirole aircraft designed originally as a pure air superiority fighter, with carrier deck capabilities also part of the design brief for the aircraft, though this has not been implemented yet.
(I have added an arrestor hook so you can land on the carrier anyway)
Also, if you're wondering why it's called the C.16 typhoon: It's the spanish designation for typhoon (like EF2000), which seemed fitting for a spanish aircraft.

The typhoon here has 3 real loadouts to choose from if realism is something you enjoy:
-- multirole -- consisting of:
-2x AGMs,
-2x Paveway IVs,
-4x fire and forget AAMs,
-2x semi-active radar AAMs,
-3x drop tanks
-- air superiority -- consisting of:
-6x fire and forget AAMs,
-2x semi-active radar AAMs,
-3x drop tanks
-- close air support (CAS) -- consisting of:
-18x Brimstone ASMs,
-4x fire and forget AAMs,
-2x semi-active radar AAMs,
-1x drop tank
(this is by no means all the configurations possible, I just thought it would be useful to have some loadouts there)

CONTROLS:
-- AG1 -- parachute
-- AG2 -- Drop tanks (obviously not for use when brimstones are equipped)
-- AG3 -- Drop left paveway (obviously not for use when brimstones are equipped)
-- AG4 -- Drop right paveway (obviously not for use when brimstones are equipped)
-- AG5 -- navigation lights and green strip lights
-- AG6 -- landing lights
-- AG7 -- arm missiles
-- AG8 + VTOL up -- close gear doors
-- AG8 + VTOL down -- slats and arrestor hook
-- Trim -- trim

Quick mention to @Mustang51 who managed to get the aircraft flying when I could not, and without whom this typhoon wouldn't exist today. A good 95% of the credit for flying characteristics goes to him, with my input being simply adjusting roll rate and CoM a couple of times. (this is also why the plane is 'based off' his build). Thank you!

So there you have it - a typhoon which behaves quite a lot like a typhoon. hope you enjoy!

    @rexzion yeah that is a departure from flight. It was just continuing in that way because of Newton’s first law of motion. It is pretty damn cool though

    I put a rocket trail on it so I could see the AoA and it can do 120 degrees, backwards cobra, fly backward sorta, I love planes that do that

    @rexzion it’s more of a departure from flight while maintaining velocity (thus moving in the same direction it was going while it was in flight)
