Eurofighter Typhoon FGR.4

Auto Credit Based on SajabAerospace's Eurofighter Typhoon FGR.4 SP1 Release V1.0

The time has finally come!

I’m uploading my Eurofighter Typhoon, which I’ve built in several phases over the past seven years. It’s a very distant descendant of my original Eurofighter, available here: https://www.simpleplanes.com/a/5cZb7Z/Eurofighter-Typhoon


Ewww.


Another version, ZJ914 “Blackjack” has now been released and is available here: https://www.simpleplanes.com/a/1o7x5y/Eurofighter-Typhoon-FGR-4-ZJ914-Blackjack.


This version is equipped with guided bombs, a targeting pod and bombsight system. The old basic cockpit has been upgraded to a more complex cockpit interior including a HUD. This required a rebuild of the entire front fuselage.

New cockpit

Heads up display

Angle of attack indicator helps with speed control during approach.

A Funky Trees flight control system has been added, making it quite effortless to fly. It’s (mostly) resistant to stalling during hard manoeuvring, controllable at low speeds and at high angles of attack. Almost no trim input is needed, it practically flies itself. During aerial refuelling control sensitivity is reduced making it easier to contact the drogue and maintain formation with the tanker.
Manoeuvreable immediately after takeoff.

Weapons include a 27mm autocannon and guided bombs as well as Interceptor and Guardian missiles. It’s also equipped with a targeting pod and additional fuel tanks.

Using the targeting pod to bomb the convoy.


They never stood a chance.

Built with the help of photos and blueprints, to achieve the best possible scale and proportion:


Remind me again, which one is the real one?

Credits

Some features, such as the bombs, targeting pod and HUD, were made by other members of this community, however I can’t remember who to credit, as I downloaded these quite a long time ago and can’t find them on the site anymore. If you recognise your own work as part of this build, tag me in the comments with a link to your creation.

    @Galaxyace Not a priority at the moment, because:

    a) We have a carrier catapult in game now (no such thing when I built my own, that’s why I made it).

    b) It was a total nightmare to get working well, we’re talking several hours of minute adjustments to a single part to make it work without exploding.

    c) I’m working on this now: https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/53775473747dc7710b9a9o_d.png
