Antonov Supersonic Fighter (Fighter Jet Challenge)

5,447 AircraftoftheRedStar  9 months ago
Auto Credit Based on Ayvieyation's Fighter Jet Challenge(finished)

Note: this aircraft is not fictional in any way

Thanks to Ayvieyation for getting me back into making jets.

Features:

  • Three 30mm NR-30 cannon (One to port, and two to starboard)
  • Two K-6 missiles (Guardian missiles)
  • Custom landing gear

History:

In December 1952 the Design Bureau of Oleg K Antonov had another go at fighter design when it began studies for this supersonic interceptor project. The Central State Aero- dynamic and Hydrodynamic Institute at Zhukovskiy (TsAGI) had supplied research data and information relating to the theories of low-aspect-ratio wings and the resulting preliminary project was based on this material. The drawing showed a tailed, low delta-winged airplane of small span, a nose intake and one Lyulka AL-7F engine, plus three 30mm NR-30 cannon mounted internally. Preliminary estimates indicated that the aircraft would achieve a top speed in the region of 1,800km/h to 1,900km/h (1,119mph to 1,181 mph) at a height of 10,000m (32,808ft). It would reach 15,000m (49,213ft) altitude in three minutes, have a ceiling between 19,000m and 20,000m (62,336ft and 65,617ft) and an endurance of two and a half hours on its internal fuel. TsAGI looked on the project with favour but the Ministry of Aircraft Industry (MAP) refused to put it into its experimental aircraft program for 1953, so the design stayed on the drawing board.

    @AircraftoftheRedStar Alright, I had heard about stuff like An-12, just curious about other areas. I had heard about that K-6 is a SALH missile, looks strange but still...not working.

    No. Actually Antonov excels at cargo aircraft. This was one of their first designs in the Cold War era in 1952. At that time, missiles were still a new concept, and most Soviet jets only carried 2 missiles into about the mid-sixties. Radar was also planned for this aircraft, but never made it into the blueprints, so the missiles had to go as well. @YangzhouAvionic

    @AircraftoftheRedStar Thanks for that, but just interested, is antonov OKB a pro at fighters? 2 K-6 SALH missiles looks a bit light

    I decided to take a shot at a challenge. Turns out I've never been in one before. Your entry is actually very good for a player with your amount of points. @YangzhouAvionic

    Great work, I guess I will be smashed in the challenge.

    @AircraftoftheRedStar are you iOS only? The best way of building up wings without sacrificing performance is drag modding—but it can be done.

    Nice, simple. Probably flies about as well as the real thing would have (high takeoff speed, fast and not the quickest turn rate, but realistic nonetheless).

    XML modded parts can be used by all devices, the mods can’t be used by iOS @AircraftoftheRedStar

    I’m on iOS, but I have the non-weight one
    I can give you one

    I’ve wanted non-weight fuselage blocks for a while, but I run iOS, so that’s not really possible for me to make them. Although I have done fuselage blocks on the wings, they reduced my airplane’s performance drastically @Spectre2520

    How do you put images into the descriptions? I’m an idiot.

    I recommend that you start putting non-weight fuselage block on the wings, then start getting the patterns on the wing
    That would be so cool @AircraftoftheRedStar
