FAL-40S Hipster Stealth Fighter

Background

The implementation of stealth technology seems become a widespread phenomenon in the 21st-century military. A lot of countries develop their own low observable, 5th generation fighter aircraft. Although we already have our own 5th generation fighter with our FAD-90S Galleon, the said aircraft is on the hi configuration, more like a heavy fighter focused on the air superiority mission even though has the multirole capability. Also, it has overall higher production and maintenance costs. What we need is more low-cost, higher production potential, and design-wise focused primarily on jack-of-all-trade, complementing the Galleon. By that, project Fighter Advanced Lightweight is commenced

Design and Description

The FAL-40S Hipster is a single-seat, single-engine, all-weather multirole stealth fighter intended for air superiority and attack missions. Designed with an emphasis on ease of maintenance, low-cost options, and multi-role capability, it follows the same design philosophy as the F35 Lighting. It uses a v-tail configuration like the SU-75 Checkmate for reduced weight, easier manufacture, and possible reduced RCS.

It has 3 main bays, 1 in the middle for main, and 2 neatly squeezing the engine for Short-range IR missiles. It also incorporates Electro-Optical Targeting System (EOTS) for guided munition.

In the nutshell, this thing is just like Galleon: could throw hands at bandits and serve knuckle sandwiches to someone down below just in a smaller package and lower cost

Role

  • Multirole
  • Air Superiority

Armament

  • 2 x BVR-21 Arjuna BVRAAM
  • 8 x SDB-75M StormFly
  • 2 x AIM-9X Sidewinder
  • 1 x 25mm rotary cannon

Features:

- Glimiter and Fly-by-wire

It has Glimiter and Fly-by-wire that will prevent over G and smooth flight. Rated for max 9G, where most naval fighter only for max 7G

- Electro Optical Targeting System

EOTS for targeting, based on SINTREX Targeting pod. Will track enemy, have a reticle and target data. Note: use zoom, otherwise, it will look weird

- Digital Ghost Camo

idk if its a feature or not, but I'm kinda proud of it lol. Available in grey urban and naval blue.


- Working stealth weapon bay

Automatically open and then closed when firing weapons without any input to maintain stealth

Control:

AG1: Toggle Afterburner
AG2: Toggle Hook
AG3 and Deactivate4: Arming weapon in the internal bay
AG4 and Deactivate3: Arming weapon in wing
AG3 and AG4: Open weapon bay (disarming all weapons)
AG5: Toggle fuel probe
AG6: Toggle EOTS motors
AG8: Toggle canopy and wing fold (Automatically toggle off when Throttle > 10%)
Trim: Trim
VTOL: Flaps

Weapon Briefing:

- SDB-M75 StormFly

Small diameter glide bomb type of weapon with high accuracy to reduce colateral damage. Small sized meaning could be carried more and could engange more target. One set of rack contain 4 Stormfly and FAL-40S carries 2 racks. 8 munition, 8 target. Comparable to GBU-53/B StormBreaker

Specification
Operational range: 75 km
Max targeting angle: 70
Guidance: GPS, Inertial, IR, Active radar homing
Weight: 96 kg
Warhead: 47kg

- AGMS-200 Bajak Anti Ship Missile


Your typical anti-ship missile. Powered by in-game jet so its looks and act like real-life jet engine-powered missile (no smoke trail). Comparable in dimension and specification to AGM-84 Harpoon. Available on beast mode

Specification
Operational range: 200 km
Max targeting angle: 50
Max Speed: Mach 1.5
Guidance: GPS, Inertial
Weight: 552 kg
Warhead: 152kg

- BVR-21 Arjuna BVRAAM

Beyond-visual-range air-to-air missile (BVRAAM), using air ducted rocket and ram engine to achieve longer range, similar to MDMA Meteor. Ideal for interception. Could be used in a dogfight but with limited performance.

Specification
Operational range: 210 km
Max Speed: Mach 4.5
Max targeting angle: 60
Guidance: Active radar homing

- AIM-9X SRAAM

Short air to air missile made by Blue0bull (KAI KF-6A Caraca). A very agile missile with 180-degree detection angle. Combined with aircraft maneuverability to achieve a formidable dogfighter.

Specification
Operational range: 20 km
Max targeting angle: 180
Guidance: IR

Note

  • Feel free to take the missile
  • I use high physics when building this so use the same setting
  • If your device cannot run this, try to set every quality setting to low

Author note

this thing should be an entry for Blue's Stealth Challenges 2022, but it seems it canceled. In any way, I hope he's doing fine.
Also, I wanna thanks this fine gentleman whose name that I cannot even read, gave better glimiter code in FT discord

I used to use PID as glimiter that I got from the forum. It works but have tendency to oscilate. I don't wanna tune PID lol

    @EngineerB I don't use it. That's probably the reason you can't touch down I guess? The problems are probably because I set the drag points to 2000 ish. That makes the aircraft kind of glidy but that's the only way to have realistic performance aircraft, sp physics works that way

    The reason I had to upgrade the stopping was on non firm surfaces, Every other part didn’t have any issues and
    I believe you did a wonderful job. But I have a question, When you were doing powered landings what power and did you have flaps or trim?

    @EngineerB well during making this , i dont have a problem on landing either powered or unpowered and never have the wheel explode on landing. But then, thanks for making improvement

    @DwiAngkasaAeronautics for you I have done what I normal do which is tweaking Aircraft to improve aspects. Here is the link to my upgraded version with assisted landing*

    Do you want to explode on landing or glide with no chance of abort?

    @EngineerB Can you tell me how you land it? I always nailed the landing both in high and low physics

    @DwiAngkasaAeronautics But does this work for all HUDs? because there are others

    @Brayden1981
    .
    @SMILEE You have to copy some variables. Using this as a guide, you have to access the variable list (green outline), and then copy each line of variable. The red outline is for HUD. The yellow is for radar. Theres some of the radar variables that contain variable from HUD

    Hey dude you can help me? I'm trying to put some parts like the radar and the improved HUD on my plane but these parts don't work, the hud doesn't have that crosshair that shows where the shot will hit and the radar doesn't show the enemy's position, and I'm seeing that many people can use these parts without problem, can you help me?
