Mikoyan-Gurevich MiG-31 'Foxhound' | Thanks for Gold!

11.8k DarthAbhinav  6 months ago

Thank you so much for gold! Consider this my gold celebration build.


Special thanks to Parshainaerospace for the nozzles. They are some of the best I've seen and the exhaust is, as a result, amazing. The plane just would not have been the same without it.

Furthermore, special thanks to BogdanX for flight testing and bug fixing. The plane would've been riddled with issues were it not for him helping me when my laptop was reduced to the state illustrated in the below screenshot.



Controls

AG-1: Afterburners

AG-2: Slats

AG-3: Landing Chutes

Armament

There are two choices for you to pick from.

Loadout 1 (already mounted on the plane)

1x Kh-47M2 Kinzhal Hypersonic Missile (Top speed: Mach 10.)

OR

Loadout 2 (in the trolley on the side)

4x R-33 'AA-9 Amos' Air-To-Air missiles.

2x R-60 'AA-6 Aphid' Air-To-Air missiles.

If mounted properly, should look like this:

Ignore the red circles.

Disclaimer: If you want to use the alternative loadout, please install a gun.

    @DarthAbhinav1 Oh, I see. There really are a lot of small parts in your nozzles. I think it would be better to use these parts to shape the body. Anyway it is a nice work!

    @Fei314 the nozzles add ~400 parts. Body + Wings are around 300-400. Details make up the rest.

    @BogdanX is right. Now that I look back, I believe I could've refined the build a lot more. It feels undercooked, unfinished. I'll keep all these pointers in mind for my next build and will ensure not to rush the upload.

    One last thing: Don’t use act groups for AB settings. It’s not realistic. Suprised you didn’t catch his 2 stage ab @BogdanX or does the 31 have a two stage?

    @232287168147825 great map 😉


    Your slats are inverted tho

    @ChisP that's a rip. As for the flight performance, the plane mustn't exceed 5Gs in low speeds, therefore, if SP physics is accurate at all, this is how the plane actually handles irl.


    @FuriousDream thank you.

    There are some flight model inaccuracies but I’m sure you tried your best. This is a HEAVY plane and heavies are hard to make good flight models for in SP. it should handle better at low speeds but again heavy plane +SP = don’t work
