English Electric Ecdysiast 3.0

144k RamboJutter  1.5 years ago

With the development of rocket technology and the success of the recent Saunders Roe rocket interceptor, English Electric decide to get in on the act.

Follow these carefully (unless you really like explosions):
Ag1 raises the launch platform, then activate ground attack rockets and hold the fire button until you are confident they have all fired, then press
Ag2 to lauch,
Ag3 will release the booster rocket and its balance weight (has 60 seconds fuel but the flame wont stop) as well as retracting the flaps (can be reused later), Ag4 released the main rockets either when the fuel has ran out ( 5mins) or when you want to,
landing gear lowers the single recovery wheel,
brake for airbrakes,
Ag6 for ejecting the pilots if you have ballesed it up =) First person to give me the defiinition of the name wins a medal (or an upvote mby)

    @sheepsblood the detacher has 3 connection points, from memory the small bit goes to the plane, the long back has a connection point for the custom missile to attach to.

    @RamboJutter
    Quote: I had to xml edit them not to auto destruct and increase the fuel, then you get a detached and attach the upright bit to your plane with the rocket on the bottom and voila it works.

    Followed you on your instructions up until the point where you said "get a detached and attach the upright bit"

    What is a detached? Are you saying a detacher? Also, what is the upright bit?

    @Toxicareonuatics wheels like any other plane, they are just retracted to start with.

    I say, old boy; would you be terribly put out if one were to - ahem - borrow one of the rocket packs from this kite, for use in another? All credit shall be given, I trust you understand? @RamboJutter

    This was still an amazing build though, despite its name’s meaning. Two thumbs up! @RamboJutter (LOL)
