Fictional Strategic Bomber Challenge:
Deadline: 17th December 2018**
Unfortunately the deadline has to be moved back to the 3rd of January due to work related issues
Hello everyone! This is my first challenge, and today, I would like you to develop a long range, strategic bomber! There is one catch to this challenge though; the bomber must be fictional, it may bear resemblance to pre-existing real life aircraft, however there must be enough of a difference to tell it is indeed fictional.
The rules are rather simple:
It must be an original build of your design. If you want to use an aircraft you've designed previously, please modify it.
It must be a successor to this challenge, I would prefer not to go through a maze to find a participant.
Entries must be realistic in their performance, Maximum Speed is 2,100 MPH and must have a realistic flight performance.
Aircraft under 150 parts and over 700 parts will be disqualified
a bomb bay must be present and functional for your bomber, no bombs may be allowed on external pylons unless in the form of nuclear warheads or encased in pylon pods - see my B-93 Deltarrow or NARSSB-01 Hydra as examples.
Avoid using mods. XML is allowed and expected, except: drag, gravity, health and infinity fuel.
Each contestant may submit up to 3 aircraft
The description is mandatory and it will be specified: 1) Year of introduction, 2) Nation of origin 3) Brief history of plane, 4) Options and specifications
No national markings are required, however the more in-depth and detailed your aircraft is, the higher your score.
You may choose to use jet engines or prop engines... or both for that matter!
The Aircraft must be from the eras of 1950's through today (2020-ish)
