B-20C Wingfortress

24.5k Mustang51  2.4 years ago

The final version of the fictional B-20 bomber series, this version was considered to be the most efficient form of the aircraft. This flying wing was in production during the last year of WWII and entered service in late July 1945, just too late too see any service. However, like the other B-20s, it saw extensive service in the Korean War and flew as a frontline nuclear strike bomber until the 1960s. This variant, although considered better than the B-20B, only had 120 produced. This was due to the need for a jet production bomber aircraft, thus ending the need for B-20s.

Instructions: to fly normally, turn the VTOL control all the way up. This will change the angle which the engines are at it order for a more stable flight. Afterwards, deactivate AG8 as this is what controls the engine pitch.

    @VVMC Here is a flying wing you might enjoy that’s inspired by the YB-35, the predecessor to the YB-49

    @Dstabler not exactly. They were both being developed at the same time competing for who would be the new heavy bomber of the USAF and the B-36 won. This one lead to the YB-49 (the same thing but only jet engines) which many decades later was used to help develop the B-2. Its got a sort of complicated history but very interesting in my opinion

    So I read about it and found out that it helped lead to the b-36 which used both piston and jet engines.@Mustang51

    @Dstabler it’s actually inspired by the plane which inspired the actual B-2 spirit. It’s called the YB-35 and it’s development started during WWII but it first flew in 1946. It’s a very cool aircraft and I recommend reading up on it. Also feel free to leave an upvote if you like it hahaha

    @DickBrazen sure thing. I really don’t mind if people make something from my builds as long as they don’t pretend they made it themselves which I’m sure you would do

    @Mustang51, I hope you don't mind. I've been looking for a bomber with ball-turrets or something like that to bastardize with an idea that I have. This looks like it's just what I'm looking for. Killer design, too.

    @AceMcCloud Thank you! I have seen it but this was more inspired by the YB-35. Same concept though

    @StJiub it takes a lot of time. Look at my early builds! They not nearly as good as yours. I’ve also been playing this game since it was released for iOS so lots of experience here hahaha
