P-55 Ascender

Description:

P-55 Ascender is a fighter-interceptor designed in USA in 40s.
The performance of the XP-55 was not very impressive and was often inferior to that of more conventional fighter aircraft already in service.
But here, in Simple Planes, I made it quite controllable and maneuverable.
On the plane there are 4 machine guns 12.7-mm.

Contolls:

  • first group - headlight
  • the VTOL controlls pitch

Spotlights

    Awesome crafting! I really like the addition of the vibration when you shoot the gun. Gives it that realistic feeling. Nice detail and it is easy to fly.

    Oh wait nvm I see what’s happened. You’ve accidentally sat trim to go the wrong way on one of the horizontal stabilisers. Still, very nice plane. :)

    Desperately needs trim since it has a habit of pitching down, but that’s my only complaint. Very nice!
