In a parallel universe somewhen

His Majesty's Aircraft

Lethal Tide

Take-off

AG1 on, AG2 off. VTOL down half way to set Lift Canards for take-off. Apply full throttle and pull up during take-off run; Unstick occurs quickly at 160mph. Once airborne and climbing, VTOL centre to raise Lift Canards.

Maintain full throttle for gentle climb and maximum speed, otherwise throttle back and apply Trim as required.

Landing

Use 10% Throttle for final approach and landing: on approach, when speed drops below 180mph, VTOL down fully to lower lift canards. On touchdown, Throttle off.

Water Taxiing

AG1 off, AG2 on. Use Pitch for forward and reverse. Use Roll to turn.

Crew 1

Built by: Pilot and crew, using the salvaged fuselage of a land-based fighter.
Sponsored by: Cortland Ropewalks, Cortland Traders' Guild and Slyvan Freight.

AG1 on, AG2 off Main Propulsion.
AG2 on, AG1 off Taxiing Thrusters; use Pitch and Roll.
AG3 Cannon.
AG4 Rockets.
AG5 Torpedo.
AG6 Landing Lights.
AG7 Detach outer rocket pods (inner pods remain attached for safety)

Nose machine guns always available at speeds over 60mph.

His Majesty's Aircraft “Lethal Tide” is a heavily armed, medium speed Naval Strike aircraft.

The craft fulfills the need to fly fast and low towards its targets, and to attack using a variety of weapons.

The craft's short take-off run allows it to operate from lakes and rivers if required.

Footnote

Tail is close to the water. Call it a Treadmill Feature!

Apologies for the Torpedo behaviour; tinkering with size and mass seems to upset it: it just skims along the surface of the water for some reason. Still goes boom though…..

    Thanks! Yeah but looks more comical when they are larger. The animation for the prop looks awful as well!@ThomasRoderick

    That's just how in-game torps work... Regardless the mass and size...

    @Treadmill103 Flying boat torpedo bombers are always cool.
