PZL-Mielec M-15 Belphegor

100k Hedero  8 months ago

Massive thank you to BogdanX, Warhawk95, and EternalDarkness for their help with FT codes and support through this build.




Brief History

The PZL M-15 was a jet-powered biplane designed and manufactured by the Polish aircraft company WSK PZL-Mielec for agricultural aviation. In reference to both its strange looks and relatively loud jet engine, the aircraft was nicknamed Belphegor, after the noisy demon. Wiki

Controls
1=Nav Lights
2=Landing Lights
3=Cabin Doors
4=(This activation group was for the sprayer, although, there is no great method for a sprayer technique. I tried rocket smoke, jet engines, and guns. Nothing as of right now works perfectly. So I figured this would look much better without the sprayer at all.)

Features
Simple yet pretty interior cockpit with very accurate touches to match the real thing
Beautiful exterior details for depth and visual complexity
Detailed landing gear
Accurate top speed, stall speed, and estimated takeoff speed
Custom airfoils

I'm guessing this came as a surprise to many of you. I had to take a break from complex aircraft that require ft codes. So I settled on this piece of garbage of an aircraft. It is officially declared as the "ugliest" aircraft in the world, although that term is highly subjective. But that's just what google told me. Something about ugly aircraft intrigue me, this one was very interesting. Although I am beginning to get tired of looking at this thing. It's name literally means "demon". Even it's own designers weren't fond of it's visuals. That's saying something to be sure. But I digress, enjoy this simplistic aircraft, I hope I brought back alive an aircraft that wasn't well known on the website, and gave this rustbucket a new home to some SP pilot out there. It wasn't treated very well back in the Soviet Union, and to be honest, I can't blame them.

    @AWESOMENESS360, Oh of course it's FunkyTrees, I use it too, thanks.

    @L0RR3B0RR3 It’s an abbreviation for the game’s coding language, Funky Trees. It’s basically one of the greatest things to ever be added to the game, almost every complicated build with rotators and other gizmo parts utilizes Funky Trees at this point.

    in the bio, you mentioned that you use "ft codes" when making aircraft. what are those?

    Very well made! Looks so cool! Also had no idea that this was based on a real aircraft. What a design!

    Why don’t you just use a countermeasure dispenser for the spray
