Grumman TBF Avenger V2

60.4k EpicPigster1  3.6 years ago
Auto Credit Based on EpicPigster1's (1F)

MASSIVE THANKS TO @BogdanX and @BaconAircraft for testing and providing advice, and @CRJ900Pilot for those ship icons!!!
It's finally here! My remastered version of my very first featured plane, this Avenger is one of the best planes I have ever made. It's even capable of doing the torpedo run mission, and it is quite rugged for a plane in SimplePlanes. I completely rebuilt the entire plane, and I gotta say, I'm quite proud especially the elevators, they are exactly the way the real plane had them! It has a stinger gun, ball turret, Sto Wings and 2 1000lbs torpedos!
CONTROLS!
AG1 + TRIM: Ball Turret Up to Down
AG2 + TRIM: Ball Turret Left to Right
AG3 + TRIM: Bomb Bay Doors and Lower Torpedos
AG4 + TRIM: Sto-Wings
AG5: Activate Rear Guns
AG6: Lights
VTOL: Flaps
CAM1: Bombardier View
CAM2: Ball Gunner View
CAM3 and 4: Torpedo Views

This is the first plane in my Remastered series, and part of the Naval Wing Trifecta. Next up, the FM-2 Wildcat!

    @HeavyC22 thanks! yeah, i know it's a bit off, believe it or not the nose is the only part of the plane that I didn't make major changes to, still the same shape as it was when I built it 3 years ago as a silver :D

    Guess what? Doomsday.the Nauzene RJXC/NE600 "doomsday" is the plane that we used to make and drop 16 nukes on Russia and 13 nukes on China to end ww3 (of course that won't happen) this plane we first thought about in 1943 The plane was first equipped with 4 Nauzene EXE350's which were fast and a long range the range can stretch from San Francisco all the way to eastern Russia.its a regular bomber, but was doomsday for Russia in 2021 (that ain't real).
