Centauri Dynamics FAI-291B Orca

The Orca is a simple multirole fighter interceptor that was inspired by the Jaguar series of British designed aircraft, she features a pair of bomb launchers and six air to air missiles that have a wide field of lock and rapid locktime.

She's not my most maneuverable design but she's fast at low altitude and can turn well at high speeds, her turn rate is similar to a souped up F-4 Phantom, and should you find yourself in a dogfight with a more maneuverable adversary I suggest you either study up on top gun tactics or run like hell.

The aircraft is unique in the fact that her vertical stabilizer behaves like an all-flying tail to provide roll control, this is to counter the unprecedented yaw given by the elevator due to it's negative wing angle, which makes it behave like a v-tail.

AG-1 toggles the gyros, trim controls pitch to behave like autopilot.

I gotta give credit to KCFerrari for that flight reticle, and to the creator of that WD F-13 Viper for the gun pod.

Enjoy.

    I agree with @jamesPLANESii but at the same time the blackish grey looks very cool not to mention the plane styles!

    Yeah, but it doesn’t really attract the eye very well on SP, @CenturiVonKikie

    I would agree, but isn't that the point with military combat gear? To have them blend in?

    If I were you, I wouldn’t make your planes that dark grey colour. It blends into the background way too easily. With military planes, try using mid-tone greys with coloured trim.
