5 6 7 - Eject Ordinance
VTOL Down - Flaps (Half for takeoff, Full for landing)
TRIM - Trimming
8 - Lights ON/OFF


Features:

  • [DCS] simulator used for inspiration and flight model
  • Max speed limited by ordinance drag (Eject to reach 600mph at sea level)

    How do you make the right and the left rocket pods fire at the same time?
    also great plane you got here.

    @TheXDimension32 Sorry, man. I will never touch/help people again, had some horrible experiences.
    People I've helped a lot turned against me and insulted me. Not expecting gratitude, but at least keep things civil. There are like 4 of them, i won't name them (forum rules).

    so, ik your really good at fighter flight mechanics, would you mind helping me fix the a-10 i'm working on?

    @ainanen i know about Encyclopedia. Thank you

    @BogdanX BTW, I own the following planes in DCS:
    F-14
    Su-33
    A-10C
    M-2000C
    F-15C
    The reason I am telling you this is because I will be glad to contribute to your builds in some way using these. I can record footage and take screenshots of specific things at request. If you plan on making some of these in the future and you cannot find a good image of something online, just ask me :)
    Another thing is that DCS comes with detailed 3D models of all aircraft that have modules made of them, FOR FREE. You do not need to buy the aircraft to view their external model. You can simply select Encyclopedia from the main menu and view a turnaround of them. There are also models of many aircraft that do not yet have modules, but they are to a lower level of quality.

    @WNP78 the only solution for plane to bleed "speed" on pitch or climbing, is Chichi solution. Like a hidden airbrake that will activate on pitch and/or trim.

    @Jim1the1Squid only the major details are here. The important ones

    @WNP78 there is a huge difference between DCS physics and SP.
    In DCS, after you jettison the payload, the plane needs like 3-4 (and more) minutes to reach max speed. In SP, even with slowest acceleration possible, it will get there in less than a minute.
    If you increase drag, to counter that, no more gliding. To get some gliding, must increase the wing area. If i increase the wing area, you'll complain the plane handles like on rails. So, last solution. Make a super slow acceleration, so i must decrease power and increase throttle range, that will mean high fuel consumption. And Chichi will complain about that.
    The A-10 you like, it doesn't accelerate at 60 degrees angle, but it also doesn't slow down. It stays somewhere at 200 mph.
    That's because is a slow plane, it has a 440 mph max speed at sea level. While the Su-25 has 600+. That difference in power cause the acceleration.
    I just cannot see a way to please everyone and cover every aspect.
    This build weapons have drag, so it will go even faster after you jettison them.

    Probably one of the most detailed planes I've seen...

    @BogdanX I don't expect perfection from you, or anyone for that matter. I wouldn't have commented, had it not been for the previous excellent performance of your builds (such as the A-10, of similar role which had an excellent flight model and I still like flying) and past tendency to rather heavily lay down criticism on other's builds. As for turn radius, a metric you like to use a lot, you never consider the g-force stresses on the plane or the pilot. You'll never see a jet irl pull a 20g turn since it would fall apart and/or kill the pilot. SP doesn't simulate this so of course your perceived performance is better than you'd expect at first glance. At some point I might make a mod for at least simulating G-blackouts.

    @BogdanX yes I've seen it in CIWS. Bright pink ones.

    @EliteArsenals24 red coloring is NATO's. Well, they are kinda pinkish.

    @BogdanX @BogdanX oh. Didn't know that there are types of ammo like that. I've seen red colored one but not green. Did a bit of research and it seems that they are fired every fifth bullet or so also that is what I noticed in your build. Guess my knowledge in weaponry is not so wide after all lol. Thanks for the info!

    @EliteArsenals24 russian tracer color... they use green.
    The Su-25 uses this type of ammo

    @WNP78 the same old discussion. I am so tired explaining to you that in SP, a game with basic physics, you must compromise.

    But be my guest, nail 100% of flight model on SP. Good luck. You tried on the EEL and failed.
    Go and match all those: The landing/takeoff speed, max speed 600mph at sea level, the right acceleration on tarmac and air, glide ratio, turn ratio, stall speed.
    How about you make a plane in SP that has a perfect flight model, i would love to see that!

    It's nice, but I struggle to believe you used DCS for the flight model testing... In this 60 degree climb it's accelerating. I tried this in DCS, and even with no ordinance and fairly little fuel, it falls right out of the sky.
