WW2 Heavy fighter

6,434 LEOPARDtec  3.1 years ago

Later in the war, the British government decided that Britain needed a fast, agile, heavily armoured and heavily weaponised fighter to counter the latest German jet fighters. It took inspiration from captured German machines and added to them in a spectacular fashion. The distinctive wing layout enabled the fighter to have a greater spread on its guns and have more of them. It can be flown from the co-pilots seat in the case of an emergency.This was truly one of the greatest piston engine fighters of the war.

-3 or 4% throttle when taxying and use yaw
-full throttle in flight
-camera for the co-pilot's seat

Hope you enjoy!!

    @Treadmill103 For the wings I wanted to make something that stands out and that's a little unorthodox and different.

    @Treadmill103 Thanks mate!! I took a bit longer on the gun pods; they're simple but look good.
