* Convair B-36 Peacemaker "Troublemaker" on Tracks *
> Mr. Saturn28 > flight engineer <

**WARNING**
Due to huge size of this plane, editor freezes from time to time or crashes on weaker mobile platform. Also longer loading
Link to half-size, mobile friendly, lame version (clickable on first comment)

Features:
* Scale 1:1, realistic weight and performances.
* 2 functional bomb bays [VTOL]
* Functional tracks installed on landing gear
* Spoilers activated by [Brake] on tarmac, flaps with [TRIM]

Sorry for any inconvenience in editor, no problems in world map...
SP doesn't like blocks with size>5 or huge wings. So "Troublemaker" is the perfect nickname .
Plane is absolutely majestic, super-heavy, but stable. Did some tricks to keep a low agility, still flight is smooth.

    @BogdanX My phone literally heats up to the point when I can't hold it. But my laptop can handle it very well.

    @BogdanX Well, I've got both a computer and an Android phone. The phone sucks a lot, however.

    He's using a mod in the picture. They can make custom terrain, so he's downloaded one and put the plane there. @Stampede

    @MrMecha loaded weight was around 260, 000 lbs (120 tons)
    So it was unpowered, propeller engines couldn't handle it effectively. So they added 4 jet engines.
    The weight was the reason the tracks were researched/tested.
    Very few airfields on USA were long and reinforced to support this monster. Also for gravel or sand improvised runaways on remote airbases.
    The default landing gear was a giant wheel which had problems to sustain the planes
    The tracks did good on tests, but eventually they installed 4 wheels landing gear

    Wow, this is amazing. The red tail contrasts very well with the light blue fuselage. By the way, why does it use propellers in combination with jets AND tracks?

    @BogdanX Heya, I've been catching up on comments, but I was actually just writing about a rough (downhill!) runway in building in my new map.


    Let me know feedback about the rough landing base and we can build it up for the map, and I'll just make the designer off of that when we have it figured out.


    You can name it as well!
