Columbiair F/A-26 Appaloosa (RAF)

4,683 HeavyC22  5 months ago

Britain, looking to retire their Eurofighter Typhoons after leaving the EU, reached out to Columbiair for a new multirole fighter/interceptor. With a powerful engine, large control surfaces, and a great climb rate, this aircraft fill the role of interceptor very well. The high lift design allows for a hefty payload to be taken along as well, as well as giving this aircraft a decent turn rate. Controls: AG1-6 : nothing, AG7 : jettison missile rack. I hope you enjoy! I had a lot of fun making this one.

    This is a pretty cool looking fighter! It looks sort of like a mix between an F-35 and a Jaguar but with canards. Turning with this plane is quite poor so maybe some more wing area would help since wing load is really high. Some more area to the elevator and canard would help as well. Other than this I really like it!
