English Electric Brisbane B-MK1 5.4

144k RamboJutter  11 months ago

Completely fictional build

With the progression of the cold war, the success of the English Electric Canberra and the need for a high altitude aircraft (to avoid missiles and interceptors) English Electric went back to the drawing board and came up with the Brisbane B-MK1. This innovative design featured a large forward swept wing which reduced tip stalling and allowed for decent manoverability at high altitude in the thin air, combined with 5 Rolls Royce Avon engines (with re-heat) it was capable of 2000mph at 60,000ft and could fly higher as required. Designed around the ability of carrying 1 nuclear device in an internal bomb-bay, it filled a niche in the British arsenal.

2 people crew - pilot and nav/bomb aimer
Max speed - 2000mph+
Cruising speed - 700mph
Range - 3000mi+
Loaded weight - 30000lbs+
Armament - 1 nuclear bomb (0.5kt)
Takeoff speed when armed - 230mph

AG1 - flaps (deployed on spawn)
LandingGear button - landing gear funnily enough
AG2 - Undercarriage doors
AG3 - Bomb bay doors and retractable bomb aimers position
AG4 - Nav lights
AG5 - engage re-heat fully VTOL up - airbrakes

flaps down 1 Undercarriage retracted 2 Undercarriage doors shut, bomb bay open and bomb aimer position deployed 3 70k ft at 1968mph 4 airbrakes deployed
4.1

    For some reason the position of the cockpit bothers me lol. But aside from that this is awesome.

    @RamboJutter Yeah, you're right. But seriously, my OCD level is going through the roof
    Also, why wouldn't anyone want to comment that this plane has exactly 707 Parts

    @BogdanX yep, and too far back to actually work as flaps, should go up to act as an elevator, essentially its a delta so they wouldnt have flaps at all but hey ho.

    @Ryn176 I like offset cockpits, a proper British aircraft characteristic of cold war aircraft.
