Petlyakov Pe-8(ASh-82FN)

70.2k Alisuchanka  one month ago

FAB-1000 bomb load version here!


Controls In Craft Instructions:


Short Description:

The Pe-8 are the Soviets' only four engined heavy bomber series made and used during WW2. This variant uses Shvetsov ASh-82FN engines.


Features:

  • Turrets rotate according to the camera angles of their respective camera views. This plane is basically my testbed for camera controlled turret like this. It uses the camera variables.
  • Realistic mass, scale, wing loading, and wing area
  • simplified cockpit for VR use
  • Guns automatically activate whether their camera views are used. Rear defense view allows using all rear facing guns for defense.

Armaments:

Turrets:
- 2x 7.62mm ShKAS machine guns(750 rounds per gun, 10 sec reload) on nose turret
- 2x 12.7mm Berezin UB Machine guns(200 rounds per gun, 10 sec reload) turrets on each of the underwing nacelles
- 20mm ShVAK cannons(230 rounds per gun, 10 sec reload) on tail turret
- 20mm ShVAK cannons(200 rounds per gun, 10 sec reload) on dorsal turret
Bomb Load:
- 1x 5000kg FAB-5000 inside the bomb bay.

Thanks to:

  • SnoWFLakE0s for the bomb sight

Notes:

  • This would be my first massive, ambitious project as it is a heavy bomber, and composed of 1000+ parts.
  • the guns do deactivate if the camera angles are out of reach, but the guns don't deactivate when it's aimed on the plane parts. My little brain can't add another FT expression on my already complex FT code because of fear of breaking it.

Happy Bombing!

    about the Turrets' camera aiming
    Well, if you want to make a variable for your camera, select the camera, open the rotate window. The variable button should show up above the part transform button. There, you can name the variables from your camera. After naming the variables, you can use it as an input divided by the rotator angle if you're using a rotator.

    @Jellybacafan t isn’t a rip off of the B-17 it hardly looks like one and u can’t say it’s a rip off.the Soviet Union made the PE-8.the PE-8 is a completely different design then the B-17 so it’s not! I know history about war.I know alot about war! I watched history when I was 4 yrs old now I’m 8 yrs old and I still watch war history now!
