Dogfight tournament! [25 upvote prize] (WW2 Fiction & Replica)

Read all the rules before asking questions

Welcome to the WW2 dogfight tournament!

Basic Description:

In this Tournoment you will make a ww2 styled aircraft which will go up against other competitors using the AI in Dogfight mode.

How it will work:

your submission will be randomly paired against another submission. the in game AI will fly both planes and whichever one wins will pass to the next round and so on until there is only one left.

If that didn't make sense then use this

Build rules:

must be a successor to this post
must be a new upload
only propeller
realistic ww2 looking builds
can be fiction
no crazy xml stuff to make your plane invincible or stupidly manoeuvrable
no xml fuel
max parts 550
maximum of 4 wing guns (no miniguns)
maximum of 2 propeller engines
no missiles
For people building replicas:
1939-1945 only
no jets
if the plane you want to make has more than 4 guns in real life you can make it anyway but with only 4.
For people building fiction
Must be ww2 styled not just any old prop plane
all of the above rules

if you break any of these rules or find some silly loophole which is obviously unfair your submission will be disqualified but you can make another one.
if you break a small rule like having an extra gun or something, it will just be removed and your plane can still enter

Tips

Test your plane out using the AI feature, remember that the AI is flying it not a human

Tournament:

The first round will take place on 1/6/19. your plane will be paired against another random submission.

A forum post will be released every round showing who went against who and who passed to the next round.

1st- 25 upvotes

    Would a complete change of submissions be ok? I've been messing around and made a plane within the parameters that i think is much better than my previous submission. @belugasub

    Can I use the Blade 3000? It's for specific power and sound, as I'm doing the Curtiss XF-14.

    Hey belu,

    The aircraft that I’m building is a heavyfighter/light bomber
    And it has a rear turret

    Would it be ok if i put a wing gun there and just set it to AG-7 or something?

    @Trijets but by default using XML is a big advantage...

    I remember why I quit now

    No XML or bust.

    @belugasub - are you looking for WWII appearance, or do we have to have realistic WWII performance as well? My current build has the right look, but can hit 700 mph. If that's against the rules, I'll have to reduce the engine power before submitting it.

    @Oicraftian well my aircraft isn't "stupidally manuverable" or overpowered in anyway, soo I guess im fine

    Wouldn't XML for performance be cheating to begin with in an honest dogfight tournaments? @Trijets

    So if I XML mod my aircraft to be lighter, that isnt cheating of any sort, right? Because that is what I did with my Shortifre Mk.1
