The Jundroo military is fed up with rebel activity on snowstone island. You have been tasked to build a spy plane which must be able to complete the following challenge.

  1. It must take off from Wright airport, climb to 55,000ft and fly to Snowstone

  2. The plane will take surveillance footage of the rebel base in Snowstone

  3. The plane will then use its countermeasures to escape the missile systems

  4. It will return to base and land

The plane used in these examples is a modified version of my EA6-B Prowler 'Tigermeet'

The plane will be unarmed and will be judged according to the following criteria:

Challenge Score: */10 (How well it completes the task)
Flight performance: */5 (Maneuverability / realistic speed)
Design: */10 (how good does it look)
Extras: */5 (realistic cockpit, etc...)

Overall: */40

Requirements:
1. The plane will be a successor (exceptions will be made if reasons are given)
2. The plane must have countermeasures
3. The plane must have a camera
4. If you plan on entering, comment down below.
5. All successors will receive an upvote to confirm the entry

    @RMark1 hey, got the prototype for this challenge be ready! BUT you have to read the entire desc before taking it to a spin because this plane is super special and it's one of a kind, there's not many planes out there faster in its class!

    @VVarperro02 Ahh, obvio. pero no te creas que la cantidad de piezas sea algo importante haciendo aviones, en replicas si, pero si buscas funcionalidad no importa

    @Matimodel45 me refiero a que mi telefono me limita, se lague con aviones muy grandes o con muchas piezas

    hey, sorry but i wasted 5 hours trying to redo this and finish up, so i don't feel like going through the process of putting your cockpit in, but long story short, the final autocredited my W.I.P. instead of the challenge. @RMark1

    @Texasfam04
    I'd enter but I don't have a good design out yet. The closest thing I have to a good potential recon aircraft is my P8 Night Panther, but it's still in development and the project is on hold until I finish the NA-4 Storm Petrel.

    @Stingray It is a very nice suggestion that I shall allow in my next challenge, but I feel for this one, you truly lose the definition of a spy plane if you put missiles on the bottom. Talking about error prone... The video of my escape was cut short for a reason!

    A creative and amusing challenge. It’s easier to simply eliminate the Snowstone missiles with a single Cleaver (or custom weapon alternative) than use the error-prone Jundroo menu “countermeasures”. Suggest you allow for some creativity on how to scout Snowstone and defeat the nasty missiles, from multiple entrants. Just a thought.
