IAR 80

337k BogdanX  11 months ago

[New update changed how custom weapons work, so actiongroup 99 no longer deactivates the weapon. HERE IS THE FIXED VARIANT!]

  Credit to Mod and ChichiWerx for information, testing and feedback.

[Romanian WW II low-wing monoplane, all-metal monocoque fighter and ground-attack aircraft. Comparable to Hawker Hurricane, Bf 109E and Zero]

This is the plane that ruined P-38 day over Ploiesti oil fields. (Story). Despite both sides account on kills/loses (influenced by propaganda), grandpa (who was part of the ground crews) told me that truth was somewhere in between. P-38 was inferior at low altitude to IAR-80 and Americans never repeated that dive-bombing mission profile.

Controls:

1 - Extend/Activate Bamb
3 - Eject bombing installation, back to fighter
7 - Lights OFF/ON
8 - Ground Crew Power ON/OFF (Invisible crew rotating plane on ground)
Big RED light on right wing tip
VTOL down - Flaps (50% on takeoff,100% on landing)
TRIM - Trimming

Features:

Info:

  • Perfect Stability (Plane only has small auto-roll when LG comes up because the asymmetric speed of LG retraction. Realistic, since LG has mass)
  • Hollow Landing Gear housing (Actual Wheels Wells)
  • Crew Power simulates the ground crew rotating the plane in the right position (since this model doesn't have a turnable landing gear). Cuts the engine power.
  • Careful on landing, this one starts to stall under 90 mph.
  • No airbrakes, but LG down and flaps down slow down the plane quite a lot
  • Plane matches the specs (turning rate, roll rate, max speed etc), blueprints and characteristics.
  • War Thunder color theme.

    @BogdanX That's the funny thing few people on here seem to realize: you're much harder on yourself than you ever are on anyone else.

    I just learned about this one the other day. I was surprised by how graceful it is (especially for a radial), and when I saw it was Romanian I thought "I bet Bogdan made one." You know I'm partial to your Catalina, but I think this might be your best work.

    This is the first plane I downloaded on this website and I would have to say also one of the best. It is such an amazing piece of architecture. I wish I could build like this. Great job!

    Hey, I love your builds. They're so detailed and perfect. I was wondering if you could build a Piper Cherokee 180. I grew up in that plane so thats why its special to me. If you don't want to or you just can't then let me know. I would completely understand your reasoning. Thank you. @BogdanX

    It's nice, but a cockpit with interior would make it even better (also glass should have more gloss value)
