Vulcan F MK1 (Naval Heavy fighter) 8.6

FranticMatty video is here

Avro, in competition with DeHavilland who produced the Sea Vixen, came up with an all weather sub-sonic heavy naval fighter based on the success that they had had with the Vulcan.

This scaled down and re-designed Vulcan was powered by 2 Rolls Royce Avons with re-heat which gave exeptional acceleration while the overall design lead to an exceptionally stable weapons platform. Initially it was armed with 4 Redtop missiles and 2 20mm Aden Cannon.
AG1 = fold wings down (or up) and start engines
AG2 = Undercarriage doors LandingGear = wheel retract mechanisms
AG3 = Arrestor hook
AG4 = air brakes
AG5 = Nav Lights

I started by scaling the wingspan of a vulcan down to 2/3rds ish size so this has a smaller wing and more swept leading edge. I then scaled the whole thing down to suit a single cockpit.

    @Hyattorama if I did it like normal there will be 2 sets, 1 open by default (linked to landing gear button) and 1 set linked to airbrakes

    Hey man, where are the air brakes in this thing (the functional part, not the cosmetic/custom ones)? I’ve been looking all around in there so I can change the controls to better suit mobile play, and I can’t seem to find them...

    I know the part count is already a bit high, at least for mobile, but I’d love to see a cockpit in this! I was thinking about dropping one of @sarpanitu’s mini pre-fabbed cockpits in there, since they are awesome and it would be an easy install. @RamboJutter

    Absolutely. It takes some building experience to understand how difficult that is, and how well you executed it. @RamboJutter

    @Hyattorama thanks :) that wing drove me mad, it's 100 times harder to get looking right when we can't taper trailing edges, having to keep them with the same depth means loads of paneling to join the rest of the wing...

    @typeZERO the real Vulcan is a heavy bomber, my build is a single seat small version of It, hence it's a fighter.
