CAC CA-24 Cockatoo

7,876 Kangy  9 months ago
Auto Credit Based on LieutenantSOT's WW2 (Fictional) Fighter Challenge! [CLOSED]

Backstory:
The CA-24 Cockatoo was a strange design. Conceived with USAAF documents of a turboprop fighter and a larger P-51 airframe, a slightly larger wingspan and a high power engine, this was the ultimate fighter. It was notorious for its strange landing and takeoff speed and its landings (the plane appeared to want to stay in the air most landings!) it was dubbed the Cockatoo, mostly for being a strange design.

Thanks to its great MER (Manoeuvre Energy Retention) this plane was able to secure a quick 3 kills on Oscars over Port Moresby
The performance was so good that the plane was classified, and wasn’t seen in combat again.
American engineers were so impressed with their design, that they requested that they used some of the design for a possible jet.
Unfortunately the jet was scrapped due to the cost, but would’ve been a valid design.

Controls:
AG 1: WEP Boost
AG 8: Engine and Nav lights

Armament: x6 .50 calibre machine guns with AP-T ammo

Features:
Custom wings everywhere!
Custom Landing Gear
Funky Flaps and Turning formulai

Builder notes:Had a lot of fun making this :)
I really enjoy flying this around, performs fairly realistically, but it does overpull a bit.

Edit: I forgot to mention this, the roundles automatically change to black, please change the materials value in the XML to 14,14,13 not 14,14,-3
Thanks!

Hope you enjoy it too!

    @Bluebonbane haha that's a great story!
    I originally started out as Alta, then Alta2809, at the time I had been using the RAAF roundle as my gravatar (which is the site used to display your profile pic, i.e my kangaroo)
    And eventually I became known as KangaKangaTheRoo (which i'm sure you've seen the trend around here)
    By christmas i was KangaKangaTheRedNosedRoo and i chucked a santa hat on the raaf roundle's kangaroo
    eventually i made my character and that's how i became known as kangy!
    Also i could make you a wombat if you like :)
    you'll need discord for me to get it to you tho :/

    Oh and also before I go to bed I was wondering how you got a kangaroo as your avatar? My name (bluebonbane) is what I would call wombats when I was younger-I know weird right?-. And I want a wombats for my avatar. You don't have to reply to this one if you don't want to
