MXY-7 Ohka "Cherry Blossom"

260k SavageMan  8 months ago

For the Pacific War challenge. Built with the blueprint mod, thus the shape is very accurate.

I knew that it looks simple, and probably is not going to be very much high rated, but I did put a lot of effort on this just in order to make it fly correctly.

Instructions:

Spawn In Air!!
AG1 to activate engine and close canopy.
Notice that once it is activated, the canopy cannot be reopened and the engine cannot be turned off, which is exactly how it works during the war.

Max speed: 650km/h at level flight, 800km/h when diving

Credits

Credit to @SnoWFLakE0s for the funky tree fuel indicator! The indicator is located in the cockpit that shows how much fuel you have left, which is pretty much a timer of 222 seconds. When carrying out an attack, make sure you check the timer closely.

    In some cases, pilots would actually have thousands of pounds of explosives stuffed in the cockpit with them as well. They made sure that it was a one way trip by posting fighters with the plane until it could no longer return to land. With the cockpit being sealed, it assured that the pilot would run into the ship. Pretty sad story.

    Ok lol. Your wings looks really nice, in fact, quite a bit better than the average wing on the sp site. But I'm glad you're trying it out!@QingyuZhou

    Nah dude it looks fine. It was just a suggestion. But honestly the internal and exterior detail of your build makes up for it. Besides, builders shouldn't feel obligated to build a certain way just because others think they should.@QingyuZhou

    No I mean it's a good airfoil, don't get me wrong. I just mean you should try and make an airfoil like BogdanX's. With custom control surfaces that sit more flush with the wing. With your skill and talent of building, I figured it wouldn't hardly be very challenging for you. But you don't have to, just a suggestion.@QingyuZhou

    Out of curiosity, will the number of upvotes be a determining factor? Because I know for sure that this is not gonna be even close to those most popular entries.
