BAE Systems Broadsword [Cancelled]

Auto Credit Based on mikoyanster's 007 Challenge 2019 [CANCELLED]

Rainier and BAE System's now-cancelled British F-36 variant, designed by Rainier, built by BAE exclusively for a particular British agency and spy. Although those darn tea-sipping Brits now cancelled the contract. I guess the British government wanted a full home-grown fighter (the BAE Systems Tempest) instead of a "re-badged" american fighter...

OPERATIONS:

AG-1 = Afterburner
AG-2 = Master Arm On/Off
AG-3 = Tactical Laser & Ram-Air Electrical Generator System On/Off
AG-4 = Discard External Fuel Tanks (Non equipped on this build)
AG-5 = Formation Lights On/Off & Activate EMP Pulse-Shield-Defense Pod
AG-6 = Open/Close Canopy and Extend/Retract Boarding Ladder
AG-6 + VTOL Up = Activate APU and VTOL controls APU power output.
AG-7 = Discard ALL External Stores
AG-8 = Turn On/Off All Light Systems

SPECIAL FUNCTIONS:
VTOL = Controls APU Power Output & Rotates Laser Turret Depending on Which AG is Active
AG-2 + fireGuns = Fire 20mm Vulcan Gatling Gun
AG-2 + fireWeapons = Open Internal Weapons Bay Doors and Fire Weapons

VARIANTS/PAINT JOBS:

Paint Scheme 2

Well if anyone is in the market for two 5th generation border-line super-fighters with advanced weaponry Rainier has 2 examples for sale.

    It's a minor detail/feature you don't usually see anyone add on their builds in SimplePlanes.

    The canopy opening, boarding ladder, or the APU? If your asking about the APU, it doesn't really do anything. AG-6 + VTOL Up turns on the APU which is located on the right side of the aircraft. When your on the ground and press AG-6 to open the canopy + boarding ladder, you'll see a little air inlet pop up on the right side of the aircraft. That inlet leads to the APU (which is right under the little air inlet). The APU is basically a generator turbine that provides power to the aircraft without it's engines running. In SimplePlanes on the F-36, the APU doesn't actually do anything other than just consume your fuel a little and make noise to sound like the jet really does have an APU.

    Well my specific cockpit was born out of being a ground-based cockpit/command module for UCAV's, dubbed "S.L.I.M." (Secure Link Iinterface Module). Now its evolved to being a fully-fledged set-up for manned fighters such as the F-36, and I intend on using this cockpit style on more fighters I have in the works, and maybe even some bombers or logistics aircraft.

    I didn't create the style or anything, so you don't really need permission for that sort of thing (and no need to credit me as well, unless your directly using components of my cockpit). It's a simplistic-yet-informative design that follows the same "minimalist" philosophy as Tesla in having few instruments, buttons, screens or monitors, yet the few monitors that are available display a ton of info. Keeps the cockpit nice and clean.

    Thank you! The gold-tinted canopy helps in reducing electronic interference (especially since the F-36 contains very sensitive electronics and AI systems). The big white flash in the 2nd picture is an EMP pulse generated by the pod mounted on the back of the Broadsword. It generates an EMP pulse which causes incoming missiles to explode. In SP it's pretty much a 3-second shield to block incoming missiles. It can also be used offensively to damage or destroy aircraft, ships, or ground vehicles by flying near them and blasting an EMP pulse. Realistically the thing would just fry the electronics and not cause any major explosions but this is SP. lol

    This is super cool, it looks absolutely beautiful, and the detail is just incredible! I love how you did the cockpit, very glossy. Also, what's that big white thing in the second picture in the description?
