Tomcat


Wiki

The Grumman F-14 Tomcat is an American carrier-capable supersonic, twin-engine, two-seat, twin-tail, variable-sweep wing fighter aircraft. The Tomcat was developed for the United States Navy's Naval Fighter Experimental (VFX) program after the collapse of the F-111B project. The F-14 was the first of the American Teen Series fighters, which were designed incorporating air combat experience against MiG fighters during the Vietnam War.

Authors notes

First things first, apologies for the low quality thumbnail I couldn't make it higher, anyways this build took around 2-3 months it was fun in the beginning but then it started to lag and it wasn't so much fun so I stoped a bit from losing motivation and then got back on it this is one of my best build yet on my list, the engine startup isn't 100% correct because some thing like "Ground Power” wasn't possible and other stuff also some of the buttons are name like "Button1, Button2 because I don't know what their exactly called, also the livery is fictional also the wing sweep is manual, and the slats activate when flaps is activated so make sure to not pitch up when retracting the flaps cause then the slats will get stuck, anyways I hope you enjoy this aircraft

Flight Performance

Takeoff

•Startup the engines
•Put flaps lever forward to 100%
•Throttle up to 100%
•Wait until you reach 185mph (TAS)
•After a few feet above retract your gear and your flaps

Landing

•Approach the runway at 200mph (TAS)
•Put flaps lever at 50%
•Lower your gear
•Lower your throttle a bit
•Use airbrakes, although not for a long time cause if you use airbrakes for too long you will stall and fall out of the sky
• Gently pitch up as you get closer down to the runway and touchdown

Carrier Takeoff

•Startup the engines
•Taxi to the catapult
•Put you flaps lever forward to 100%
•Activate the "nose strut” lever (which will lower the nose)
•Throttle up to 100% (afterburner isn't necessary)
•Then takeoff
•After takeoff deactivate the "nose strut” lever and get your gear up
•Then retract flaps

Carrier Landing

•Approach the carrier and line up with the deck
•Lower your throttle
• put flaps lever at 70% forward
•Activate your arresting hook, then lower your gear
•Maintain speeds of 190mph (TAS)
•Pitch up a bit
•Then touchdown, once you catch a wire quickly shutoff the engines by throttling down to 0%

    .
    Edit: apologies for some things that are wrong in this aircraft I will update some stuff such as the engine startup, the flight model, and some of the buttons placements and I'll try to get some of the names of the buttons there as well, also I might make a vid of a engine startup
    .
    Edit 2: Here is updated version changed the flight model a bit still flies horribly and it still has an engine startup, I suggest to not fly at supersonic speeds cause it rolls by itself idk why and I can't fix it
    .
    Edit 3: might remake this

    What the heck is going on with the comments ☠️☠️☠️

    I’ve found the problem! First, the maker forgot to set the activation group of the right engine, making it impossible to work. Second, there are two small wings inside the plane, between two vertical wings. The AOA of them are different, so the plane will bank right when the wings are deployed. Third, the angle of the wings’ joints are different, so the AOA of the primary wings will be different after they are retracted. The first two problems can be fixed easily, but the wings are too complex. I recommend mirroring one wing to the other side.

    I request something of a Retainment Gyro.
    One for a Roll problem.
    The other for the dipping problem when in flight.
    Wherever you direct your aircraft in will maintain it with the help of keeping the directory. Like Autopilot, but you maintain control of the aircraft.

    @X4JB.
    If you mean subduing an opponent's reasoning, making him look like a fool and making my point proven, then you can say I won an argument. I am proud of it.
