RJ/BAE Swallow FGR1 6.8

215k RamboJutter  1.6 years ago

Introduction

The swallow was the product of a joint venture by RJ and BAE to produce a small agile adaptable weapons platform. It utilised some aspects and equipment already availiable from the Harrier program. In this instance it is armed with 1 rotary cannon, 4 aim 9 Sidewinders and has 2 droptanks also attached. The harrier cannon pods have been left in situ but the cannons have been removed to allow for the fitting of other equipment (designators, cameras etc)

Controls

AG1 = reheat
AG2 = turns on engines and releases chocks
AG3 = Airbrake
AG5 = nav lights
AG6 = arrestor hook (when it wants to work...)
AG7 = eject sequence
VTOL dn = slats down

Note: pitch and roll move the pilots head which is where the cockpit/camera is located (which can have an interesting effect on camera views)

    Hey that's perfectly fine. I find manueverability quite challenging to perfect too. @RamboJutter

    @Hedero thanks, i still enjoy building, posting and typing the description is a chore though... Manueverability is always a compromise, most of ther time i build them too manuevrable and then tone it down to match my impression of the realistic aircraft.

    Honestly I don't really know. I think you're builds generally don't fly nearly as good as they should in real life. They lack a lot of manueverability. But that's perfectly fine, I think they look super good though. But as far as visuals go, they are amazing and high quality. And I sort of think of you as the staple of SimplePlanes camoflages. So just keep it up m8.@RamboJutter

    @NightmareCorporation its definitely bits of harrier but the rest I made up really, its sort of similar in places to f18, mirage 2000 etc but I didn't model anything directly on them.

    @RamboJutter if you want a supersonic VTOL, take the Mirage Balzac !

    He is quite bulky, like a Harrier, but he is quite pretty all the same.

    @DJ2keroni the original concept was to create a VTOL supersonic harrier with a delta wing but the VTOL bit frustrated me enough to abandon it in favour of this.
