Republic P-47D-22 Thunderbolt (PLATINUM SPECIAL)

60.4k EpicPigster1  3.5 years ago

SPECIAL THANKS TO @Weaverfish FOR THE GUNSIGHT!!! Also many thanks to all my testers, you guys are awesome!

Well, it took more than a month, but here it is, my 25K points special. The best thing I have ever made. This is a remake of my first ever plane, and boy, am I proud of it. It is quite possibly the best P-47 on the site and the first with a true full cockpit. Gunsight is functional, the gauges work, the stick and levers move, and a light comes on when you drop the drop tank! She flies like a beaut too, super smooth, and does a realistic 410mph. Put it in a dive, however, and it will do almost 650mph. Quite simply, this is the most realistic thing I have ever made.

CONTROLS:
VTOL: Flaps
AG1: Jettison Drop Tank

If this thing hits 100 upvotes (yes, a massive target), then I will make more of these.

Enjoy!

SPECIAL THANKS AGAIN TO THESE GREAT PEOPLE FOR TESTING AND ADVICE!!!

    @Sarpanitu Thank you so much for the feedback! I will definitely use those suggestions for my upcoming Hellcat, especially the brake torque and wing scaling as said by you and SpiritusRaptor.
