Dassault Mirage IVP

76.6k asteroidbook345  10 days ago
Auto Credit Based on WarHawk95's French Air Force Challenge



Act. 1 - Activate RATO - 10 seconds of sustained thrust, delayed activation. They will drop after 15 seconds, so it's best to activate them at about 100mph.
Act. 2 - Airbrakes
Act. 3 - Parachute
Act. 8 - Toggle nosewheel steering
No flaps, but you should be using trim liberally.

The Mirage IVP was the penetration variant of the Mirage IVA. Equipped with an oblique doppler radar underneath the fuselage, it was meant to carry out high speed penetration missions into Soviet airspace. Tests were done using an ASMP (Air-Sol Moyenne Portée) nuclear missile, but it was never used in combat. Instead, the IVP was mostly used as a recon aircraft with a large pod where the missile would have been. It could also carry optional drop tanks and ECM pods on the 4 wing hardpoints. The tanks were left out of this recreation because the more droppable things, the more the landing gear freaks out on landing. Mirage IVP "CF" served with the Escadron de Bombardament 1/91 "Gascogne" (later Escadron de Reconnaissance Stratégique) from 1964 to 2005. In its last year before retirement, it was redecorated into the C'est Fini livery to commemorate the final flights of the Mirage IV.

I had a lot of fun building this, and I hope you have fun as well!

    I tried to get the colors as close as I could, they look different depending on what picture you look at. I couldn't get them 100% perfect because I'm bad at hex codes lol. This was my first ever camo job so pardon the roughness.

    I really like this. Nice flight model, seems realistic enough to me...looks good overall, I’m sure the camo was tricky as I can see a couple of little compromises you made for it, but it looks like the RL jet.
