Lockheed F-104 Starfighter Version 2.0

Hi everyone, I’m back from Kazakhstan!

Updates:

  • All moving tail plane.
  • Thin main wings.
  • Replaced chute with arrester hook.
  • Added catapult attachment.
  • Engine and flight refinements.

The catapult and arrester hook are awesome!

Controls:

  • AG1 for canopy and activates weapons and systems.
  • AG2 for rocket booster (careful this drinks fuel).
  • AG3 manual release of missiles.
  • AG4 to drop external tanks.
  • AG5 to turn on RCN’s for near obit manoeuvres.
  • AG6 arrester hook.
  • VTOL down for Flaps.
  • TRIM for trim.
  • Countermeasures.
  • Brake - Air brakes.

Notes:

  • Stable up to 50,000 ft, however it can reach much higher. You will need to activate the RCNs and use pitch, roll, yaw to rotate.
  • The rocket booster will dip the nose down a little at first, but it will fly even without the need for Trim.

Enjoy
SR

    I’m on mobile. I know. I’m a pathetic mobile user. Can’t download mods, can’t use multiplayer. Love my life :D@SpiritusRaptor

    It has autoyaw and autoroll. Other than that it’s great aircraft. Might wanna fix that autoroll though.

    I’m doing well. No time to play these days, but I want to get back into it. Walrus Jr. has become quite the cello player, I still race around in my Evo. Thinking about buying a surplus Humvee to boot around in. Got more serious into target practice. Having fun when I can. Still living in Texas. @SpiritusRaptor

    Heli blades, arresting hooks, full graphical redo, the USS Beast now looks and acts like an aircraft carrier, gyros, parachutes, damage updates, hollow fuelsalage... an uncountable amount of things you will undoubtedly use. @SpiritusRaptor

    Oof, I was looking for one of these and didn't find one, so I was making the 'Avril' version from Ace Combat

    Nice plane though, I love the Starfighter

    AG5 give you RCNs, so you can manoeuvre with engines off.
