Lockheed A-35A Firefly

27.6k Armyguy1534  2 months ago

Holy shiitake guys, this took a long time. I initially made a WWII naval heavy fighter (that I built before I left for a year) and I was about to post but got distracted by making a Vietnam War variant. I was close to posting this many times as I was building but kept deciding to add more (which I do not regret), and decided to stop once I started getting 2 FPS. This very quickly became my largest build, in terms of part count.
It is a fictional twin engine Vietnam attacker based mostly on the A-37

Notes

  • Once you reach about 200 kts, raise the trim about half a notch
  • I understand the cockpit is in an awkward and unrealistic placement, but by the time I realized, it was too late to change
  • I'm sorry mobile players for the high part count. I may or may not make a mobile friendly version

    @Mikey101234 yeah sorry about that. That was a necessary sacrifice to get the cool gun smoke effect

    @LieutenantSOT Thank you very much.
    About the landing gear issue, that must have been a steep landing because I've come in heavy and its been fine

    @Armyguy1534 and oh, okay! Cool!

    This plane is super cool! I love all the details you added. The mini bomb bay, the landing gear (which I'll get back to in a second), and the cockpit. MWAH! All gorgeous
    The weapons load is amazing too
    .
    However, the controls are funky at some times. Pitch seems a little slow to respond, but that's okay, the roll is good. I used full airbrake and slat/flaps on landing, but upon landing, the front gear broke. Yes, I was coming in rather high so I can try again
    And it all and all is great at taking out enemy forces

    @LieutenantSOT 100 is the normal takeoff speed. I did forget to mention this is meant to have STOL capabilities

    @Armyguy1534 lol, you're good
    .
    If you take off with full flaps/slats/airbrakes, you can get off the ground at 80 mph (so maybe 70 nmph?)
