Brief History

In altenative universe
1944.
June.
D-Day became complete failure...It was one way trip for most...Second
front cant be opened without ground attack...

Allied Air Forces keeps English Channel under control, but no bomber can reach enemy factories, airbases or any other valuable object.

Luftwaffe seem ready to change the balance of power...They know that great amount of Allied forces concentrated in Britain...So it is perfect time to strike.


Creation of aircraft

In jule of 1940 Germany attacked Britain, but the efficiency of that operation was quite questionble. But that didnt meant that Luftwaffe would not strike there again with even greater forces.

So the german engineers had created whole new airframe to the May of 1943.
It was flying wing concept powered by pulse jet and supposed to be used in conjunction with V-1 rockets as escort and kamikaze,so it lacked landing gear and vertical stabilizer
But a number of tests revealed its potential in slightly different role.

In the beginning of 1944 Luftwaffe received first 49 machines of revised contruction(changes include : jet engine was installed as well as vertical stabilizer, new ailerons and landing gear) , which were assigned for Atlantic Wall defence as a fast response vehicle , interceptor of some kind (thanks to climd rate and overall dynamics).

In Jule of 1944 during Second Battle of Britain was used 313 machines of both modifications (B-1 and E-5).

Notes

Approx. Takeoff & Landing speed : 170 & 190 km/h IAS (full Flaps)

Stall appear on ~ 170 km/h IAS But can be lowered via Flaps & Engine thrust to ~ 140 km/h IAS

Full throttle on IAS ~ 140 and less leads to Flatspin. To return to normal flight engage Airbrakes, cut Throttle and Yaw in opposing direction until stable

Cruise speed om 1000m : 560 km/h TAS

Service ceiling ~ 7500m

Rear LG loses integrity on ~ 700 km/h IAS

Armament consist of 2x MG-13-24K (Heavy machine guns capable of taking down hostile bombers and light (and not so) naval targets)


Was listening to :
Hey-o, here comes the danger up in this club
When we get started man, we aint gonna stop
We gonna turn it out, till it gets too hot
Everybody sing, hey-o


The End

P.s. dark, grim - check
P.s.s. remove VTOL engine in air intake - check
P.s.s.s. I am not a historian
I Feel the Calcium!!!

    @MAHADI
    Cool, for first ever participated challenge
    Thrust produced by jet engines on 0% throttle (it is not from hidden prop) was left to simulate taxiing.
    Still need to upload lower part counts version (hmm, nop)


    Mood in nutshell (Warning, partially loud)

    however, the propeller engine inside causes the plane to auto move forward slowly even without throttle. you should fix that.
    also the turn rate should be a bit reduced.

    Absolutely Clever! I liked the way you made the exhaust, innovative flaps, moth like wings. The cockpit feels like home! Great job!!

    Am i the only one here, to explain you the definition of insanity, hmm?
    it just started as :
    Hmm... What if Me-163 would meet Ho-229...
