Tips and Features

  • Landing on carrier while carrying full of fuel and ammunition is dangerous, causing landing gear break. You have to lose enough weight before you land.
  • At high AoA, the plane will start Fluttering.
  • Can fly straight at high AoA of up to 30 degrees(High Alpha maneuver).
  • When firing Interceptor, the missile will goes upwards at the initial boost stage for increase range. Like real mid-long range missiles does.
  • Guardian has super maneuverability and off-boresight capability.
  • Inferno is Guided bomb. But you have to aim properly because it has no thrust. Also you can use Bomb50 for unguided bombing.
  • If you want more cleaner look and agility for dogfight capability, just erase the wing pylon parts.
  • You can use WNP78's Refuel mod, just put the probe part on the black tip left of canopy.

    I have to admit I am very impressed with the design, but I find it very frustrating to fly since I'm always fighting with it to maintain flight attitude, is there something I'm missing? Description doesn't help.

    This looks like it would be great for post-stall maneuvering

    I like this a lot. I really appreciate the time and effort that went into this. Super cool wing tilt, and overall just a really sleek and well made plane. Good job.

    Easily my favorite jet to fly now. Feels so much like a simulator flying this, and I love that. The amount of work you put into the flight characteristics really shines. Outstanding job, which has been the norm for you.

    This is such a sick design, I love anything with thrust vectoring, so may I suggest a sukhoi Su series? Maybe a Su 30sm or su 57? I shouldn’t really say much as I have like no experience in building, if u check my aircraft they are... crap.@Leehopard
