B-25J-5 Mitchell "Apache Princess"

48.9k CoolPeach  3.7 years ago

Overview:
The glorious B-25J Mitchell, renowned for its versatility on all fronts during the Second World War. This creation is a replica of the B-25J-5-NC SN-43-28059 “Apache Princess”. She’s been replicated to the finest detail, with a fully detailed interior, exterior and cockpit, all recreated to historical accuracy. Source used for this research: MAAM.

Flight characteristics are realistic, turn rate, speed ect. As such, don’t expect loop de loops or high energy manoeuvres as you will stall. (*Note, it’s suggested that you always have trim pitched up).

Hot Tips:
- If you do lose an engine, do not deploy flaps to full, you will stall because of the drag, much like the real thing
- 7 forward facing guns can rip through enemy planes
- Bombs should be released slowly to avoid jams, check for clearance

Cockpit Functions:

Controls:
AG1 - Bomb Bay
AG2 - Open hatches/doors

VTOL/Trim + AG3 - Nose Gun Left/Right | Up/Down
VTOL/Trim + AG4 - Dorsal Turret Left/Right | Up/Down

More information:

The North American B-25 Mitchell is an American twin-engine, medium bomber manufactured by North American Aviation (NAA).

The design was named in honor of Major General William "Billy" Mitchell, a pioneer of U.S. military aviation. Used by many Allied air forces, the B-25 served in every theater of World War II and after the war ended many remained in service, operating across four decades. Produced in numerous variants, nearly 10,000 Mitchells rolled from NAA factories.

    My grandma's uncle was a tail gunner in this plane during ww2, unfortunately he was shot down and died when the g-force made it impossible for him to bail

    The landing gear only works on High Physics, the suspension acts funny on lower physics, especially on mobile. @Notrjmm

    Nice. I have been working on a B-25 for a while myself. Only thing I found a tad wrong was I noticed the controls are in the wrong positions in flight after watching a old video on how to fly a B-25

    Just increase the deflection angle of the wing pieces in the back if you wish

    Best way is keep it simple. Attach wing pieces were you want them with the control surfaces and then just scale them down and nudge them in. Keep the wing area close to the actual plane (measure it without the vertical stabs tho), it’ll keep the handling realistic. @Johndfg
