Auto Credit Based on ollielebananiaCFSP's Variable-sweep wing [TOURNAMENT]

The Tu-22M is a supersonic variable sweep wing strategic bomber developed by the Soviet Union in the 1960s and is the predecessor to the Tu22. The Tu-22M can be outfitted with air to ground mussels, anti ship mussels and conventional bombs. This tu22m is fitted with 2 kh-22 anti ship missiles, 18 boom 25s and 5 boom 50s. The aircraft is also fitted with a remotely controlled GSh-23 twin barreled auto cannon mounted on its tail to shoot down any aircraft that try to intercept you.

Flight characteristics and general stuff.
The wing sweep of the Tu-22M does a few things to the aircraft's performance in the air. When the wings are swept forwards it makes the aircraft slightly faster at high altitudes for the trade-off of turn performance. The wing sweep also acts as a trim for the aircraft, if you are finding that the nose its pitching up sweeps the wings back until the nose is levil.
The Tu-22M can reach speeds of over 2000km/h at altitudes above 10,000m the higher the faster.

Controls
VTOL up to sweep the wings back
Trim down for the flaps
Group 1 activates the cannon use the yaw and pitch to control when group 1 is turned on the plane will have no yaw and pitch control
Group 2 to open the bomb bay doors the boom 50s can only be selected when group 2 is activated
Group 3 is bomb salvo mode witch drops all bombs at once
Group 4 is for the drogue parachutes

    @NotAProRobo unfortunately a mobile version isn't really possible due to all the paneling on the aircraft. Even with all the internals removed the plane still as around 700 parts

    @ChrisPy that sounds like a good idea, ill probably try to implement that in future builds.

    The actual power multiplier should be about 1.7

    Very well done! One thing is acceleration. make sure your engines have the same amount of thrust as the real-life ones and then adjust drag points to make it speed up realistically high drag and high power don't work well. For this build, I would suggest drag points around 5-8k. BTW you can find the correct power for your engines by taking the rl engine power and dividing it by the power of the stock engine you are using.
