Brief History

The Bell XP-77 development was initiated by the United States Army Air Forces during World War II to produce a simplified "lightweight" fighter aircraft using non-strategic materials.

Controls
1=Nav Lights
G=LandingGear
VTOL=Flaps

Features
custom landing gear
real wing airfoils
authentic suspension
realistic top speed (at sea level, 330 mph)

Armament
Nothing, lol
(Note: the aircraft was intended to utilize a set of firearms attached to the aircraft, however, weaponry never was installed due to the aircraft's lack of performance and success for the request of a lightweight fighter. Therefore, the weapons intended for the design were never even installed on any of the prototypes.)


I hope you enjoy the Bell XP-77, this was sort of just meant as a low part aircraft to fly around and enjoy, it's also sort of intended for multiplayer fun, hence the low part count. Nothing too special about the aircraft and it's just in general a very simple design. Although it can reach speeds of 330 mph at sea level, so it's pretty quick as well, it works very well as a racing platform if you want to race your friends in a multiplayer match. And not to worry if your not the best pilot, this aircraft is fairly easy to land for any SP pilot.

    @Hedero almighty thrust-summoning combination of molecules designed and constructed by homosapiens using the power of mind to render troublesome and weak human-physiological propulsive methods obsolete and open the gates to the heavens by containing the immense all-consuming power of combustion that has aided the human population in survival for a significantly large portion of it's complex evolutionary history.

    Space-time consuming configuration of matter in which originated from the Big Bang designed and constructed by a highly intelligent species 13.8 billion years later to generate sufficient energy to drive or perform a challenging task for the intelligent species, thus reducing a massive physical load on said species to increase efficiency dramatically.@Starbound

    @Hedero disproportionately wide power-generating unit extracting sizable amounts of mechanical work from fuel energy, primarily avgas.

    slightly more spacius unit in which produces thrust at a cost of fossil fuel, namely "gasoline" @Starbound

    This is really well done!
    For some reason I cant explain...the design sparks some kinda nostalgia in me🤷

    @Hedero this
    its french and its very, very... interesting
    its quite fast for its era, but it, statistically, can only barely outclimb a wellington with minimum load. it was also deemed too dangerous to use in combat by the finnish airforce, which is BONKERS considering you are, as a pilot of the finnish airforce during ww2, literally being sent to an almost certain death.
    oh and your guns consist of 4 not-quite .30-cals that will struggle to take down a hot air balloon, even with incendiaries. and they jam like a 90s rock band. which is to say a lot.
