First of all a big thank you to ChiChiWerx for his advice on the flight model

History

  • The T-88 Trident is a naval attacker similar to the Fairchilds Republic A-10 Thunderbolt designed and developed by the Greek aircraft manufacturer company EAB (Hellenic Aerospace Industry). Its history is connected with the need for a ship destroyer by the Greek Navy. After aborted efforts including licenced Mirage 2000 variants and other attempted improvements and joint developments, EAB worked entirely on its own, on a new design according to the specifications given at the time by the Hellenic Airforce. The resulting plane named 'Trident' was officially introduced at the Defendory Arms Exhibition in Athens in 2008. It features a SNECMA M53-P2 turbofan engine, 30 mm EBO rottary cannon 3 countermeasure launchers and the ability to carry 2 HSC-1 Macedon plus 2 AA Missiles. 8 of the 50 planes in service are modified with folding wing systems in order to be able to operate from NATO aircraft carriers.

some personal notes
Well this is probably my last build for the next 6 months and so i wanted to make it special. Unfortunately i dont have the time to make it look and function better since i have to solely focus on my studies for the final exams in june which will determine my real life career path.

There is some short of a bug that make the plane suddenly roll violently without reasom. hope thats my computers fault

Feedback of every kind is welcome

    Its nice but I would argue that this would be very vertically unstable in real life. But it looks great!

    Digital camouflage, one really nice custom cockpit and only around 500 parts for all that? You, sir, are a wizard.

    This looks, almost nostalgic really, which is quite ironic.

    Beautiful, although the lack of tail still kinda looks uncanny.
