Su-24M

17.5k QuitePossiblyMangled  one month ago

Intro:
Hello! I’m back again with another build. This is my first good attempt at adding camo to one of my builds. It was so much easier than my previous attempts thanks to the addition of fuselage slicing. The camo in question is from the Syrian Air Force, as seen with the Syrian flags and roundels. For my first successful attempt, I think it turned out great. Hope you enjoy my new build!


Background:
The Sukhoi Su-24 (NATO reporting name: Fencer) is a supersonic, all-weather attack aircraft developed in the Soviet Union. The aircraft has a variable-sweep wing, twin-engines and a side-by-side seating arrangement for its crew of two. It was the first of the USSR's aircraft to carry an integrated digital navigation/attack system.[1] It remains in service with the Russian Air Force, Syrian Air Force, Ukrainian Air Force, Azerbaijan Air Force, Iraqi Air Force and various air forces to which it was exported.


Stats:
- Wingspan 58.1ft (17.7m)
- Length 82.1ft (25.0m)
- Height 21.5ft (6.5m)
-Takeoff speed (flaps extended): 160mph
-Minimum air speed (flaps extended): 122mph


Features:
-Wide array of functional custom weapons with irl stats
-Syrian Air Force camouflage
-Custom landing gear
-Aerial refueling


Weaponry:
-3x Kh-29D standoff missiles
-4x FAB-500S-E satellite guided bombs
-40x S-8 rockets in 2x B-8M1 rocket pods
-1x GSh-6-23 (500 rounds)

-200x Chaff and flares


Controls:
-VTOL: Wing sweep
-Trim: Trim
-Brake: Extend air brake

-Act1: Activate afterburner
-Act2: Extend refueling probe
-Act3: Extend flaps
-Act4: Jettison ordnance
-Act8: Turn on navigation lights

Final Notes:
After building the entire fuselage of the aircraft, I realized my blueprint for the build was terribly off. It was so bad that I had to go and use a new blueprint to try to salvage the nose, wings, and cockpit. Keep in mind this is definitely not a 100% accurate Su-24M and stuff may be missing.

The main point of this build was to test the fuselage cutting and how it could be used for something like camo. While a bit rough, I learned a lot from this build about the limitations of fuselage cutting. This is also why the build has no cockpit, as I felt the part count was getting too high.

For the FAB-500S-E, try to use it where you and the enemy has a long stretch of line of sight. The bomb takes a while to reach its target. The same applies to the Kh-29D as it is a stand off missile rather than an anti tank missile.


Conclusion:
I hope you guys enjoyed my build. I tried to include a more diverse range of weaponry and I think nailed it. Anyways, have a great day or not, the choice is yours.

Sincerely, Mangled

    Wow, what a great plane. It also gives me access to different weapons. Seeing how I use a tablet, I don't have access to a lot of missiles and bombs.

    Well you see this aircraft was built to primary test the new features in how they can be used in making camouflage. Things such as realism, accuracy, and other things were left on the back burner. Tho I appreciate and will look into it for my future builds. @ChrisPy

    The original blueprint I used was terribly off, so I had to use another one to salvage the shape of the build. @Bird6369
