3,655 KangaKangaTheRoo  3 months ago

This build is fictional and not a real aircraft.

Known for her snake like movements on the catapult, snake toungue looking catapult connecter and snake like agility, The yellow bellied sea snake is the plane to fly!

  • RAAF Commander 'Gill' first sortie 26th squadron

In a desperate act to help drive ground forces away from Allied airbases, the Sea Snake was intended as a surprise towards enemy aircraft. With an excellent climb rate and top speed thanks to it’s contra rotating prop engines, this aircraft was highly successful for it’s first run, coming home as an ace in a day and scoring 7 ground targets. It launched from HMAS Melbourne and had a long lifespan as a Naval fighter / Bomber and eventually a trainer after 20 years of service with the Air Force and navy. It was retired in 1986 in favour for the Pilatus PC-9/A.

Controls
Group 1 Raise catapult connecter
Group 2 Airbrakes
Group 3 Flaps

From there it’s usual flight controls.

Armament

x2 Cannon (40 Rounds per cannon)

Good luck out there!

    @Mustang51 Alrighty, Thanks for the feedback, that was really helpful. I'm working on a CAC Boomerang and I might see if I can tag you and Hedero on an unlisted version of it.

    Quite a cool looking aircraft! The idea behind its shape is quite neat, sort of like a dh hornet. I would say that the proportion sizes are a little off though. The cockpit looks wrong for its size and placement. The wing is also quite wide. Other than that I do like it and the engines are quite cool too. They could do with some more cooling intakes though for their size

    @Mustang51,
    Hey bud, could you give me some advice on this build? It didn’t do all that well but I put a fair bit of work into it. I didn’t have much time to build it so that’s why custom control surfaces are only at the front end of the plane.
