Lockheed F-117A Nighthawk

45.4k thealban  4.0 years ago

My take on one of the most iconic aircraft to ever fly - the F-117A Nighthawk. I started this prior to the updates but held on until the awesome new parts arrived. I'm now happy to share. I think it looks pretty good.

I'm making the push for Gold. Help me out, please rate.

Instructions:

VTOL Down: Open Weapons Bay
Group 1: Release Bomb #1
Group 2: Release Bomb #2

Built for Low physics.

Throttle to 100% for take off. Rotate at ~130MPH. When up to speed, reduce power to 80%. Land at ~15% power. Just like the real F-117, landing speeds are high. Try to keep at around 200MPH.

The Lockheed F-117 Nighthawk is a single-seat, stealth attack aircraft that was developed by Lockheed's Skunk Works division and operated by the United States Air Force (USAF). The F-117 was the first operational aircraft to be designed around stealth technology. The aircraft achieved initial operating capability status in 1983 but was publicly acknowledged much later in 1988.

    @kukimuki1234 Decades ahead doesn't mean good, it simply means it had potential and was a good train of thought.
    I'm not a fanboy, I'm informed and pay respect were it is due.

    @Me600 It was decades ahead of its time in steath, speed, and aeronutical design. also, it was one of the first planes to use computers to make it fly-able which was a landmark.

    @thealban Two wing pieces on different rotators will do that when they come together but you could add a slim fixed piece of wing to fill the gap and that won't affect the doors you already have.

    @Authros Thanks. The Doors got wonky as the folded into each other. Also it helps roll out the bombs.
