FORTRESS

5,488 MTakach  6 months ago
Auto Credit Based on MTakach's FORTRESS 2.0 TURRETLESS

Updated version here

This is the most detailed (and hopefully accurate) "Fortress" bomber yet. here are the exclusives:

With the help of a "Color Editor" (link below) and screenshots of the aircraft's animation I have replicated the "weathered effect" that the bomber has by mitch-matching gray's- and lighter grays.

Features

AG1-outer engines
AG2-Front two turrets
AG3-middle turrets
AG4 Rear turrets
AG5-Belly turrets
AG6-bombs

the bombs are all on the same AG but with the new adjustment to the pylons (courtesy of Jundroo's latest update), they are all timed. so be careful!

The wheel system has been updated with its odd setup.

HAVE FUN!!!

    @Being
    hey man, I saw that someone was hating on you on one of your builds.

    don't be discouraged at all. you do (excuse my language) fucking amazing builds, you have gotten to silver(almost gold) faster than anyone I have ever known.

    keep it up. don't let people who are jealous discourage you.

    @Mickk I didn't need them, plus I'm working on an improved version of this, with more lifting space+ extras

    Much better than the one I made.
    Nice work.

    EDIT: Flies OK, but you really need to have the outer engines working to get it off the ground.
    Looks great in the air too.

    @MTakach try and double up the wing like i did on the Ar-77. The stats will be weird since you would have one wing but twice the surface but it helps alot

    @MTakach well i tried miving the center of mass back, that helped alittle but it seems like its a lift issue. The wings are barely enough to keep it up. Id help but i have a big project on my table right now and all i can do is give advise till after im done with my new bomber.

    @TheOwlAce how about this do what you can to make it to where fly straighter and so and then I'll do whatever with your version but with the trim

    @MTakach yes, he did one, but I see that you can make pretty good replicas, so you could give it a go.
    Just saying, you can take this idea if you're nearly as bored as me

    @MTakach also you could try to do the fighter from this video, you've already made the best replica of the bomber

    Maybe I could make the frag bombs from the video, but I wouldn't dare putting bombs that'll be something like 100 parts each in a 370 part plane
    At least not on my phone
