F-11A

Auto Credit Based on MAHADI's COLD WAR Challenge [CLOSED]

What is the F-11

The F-11 is an early supersonic capable(not at sea level.) carrier based fighter aircraft.
It was in service between 1956 and 1961 but it also flew with the Blue Angles Flight Demonstration Team until 1969.
This thing... was an abomination, not because it had one big flaw, it was just littered with many.

This plane shot itself down for example.

This was Grumman's first supersonic aircraft, so a few flaws aren't really surprising.
Anyhoo, let's move onto gameplay stuff.

Controls

AGs
1: Activate all lights on the aircraft.
2: Airbrakes.
3: Arresting Hook
4: Activate AIM9Bs.
VTOL: Flaps.
TRIM: Trim -dUh-
>95% Throttle for Afterburners.

Weaponry

AIM-9B


"Sidewinder on it's way to annihilate a Twin Prop."
The AIM-9B Sidewinder, in this build will take 4 seconds to activate after you turn Action Group 4 on.

"Imagine shooting yourself down, cringe."
4 20MM Colt MK 12 Cannons. They hit like a truck and have a decent fire rate.
Just don't shoot yourself down.

How to fly and not suck

Takeoff
Flaps down, full afterburner.
Get to ~270kph (125 knots) and pitch up, near 300kph, you should take off.
Retract your gears,
you are ready to soar.
Landing
Gear down, flaps full and airbrakes out, slow down as much as you can, that usually being near 330kph.
Pitch up whilst trying to maintain a slight descent, that way, you can touchdown smoothly.

Credits where it is due!

Me: Built the plane.
One2: Been a good friend along the way and also helped with flight testing and methodery.

    @MrEarth I’ll have to try your speed brakes with G trick; I’ve used speed brakes with AoA, but your technique works really well. I also forgot to say that this build certainly looks great, nice aesthetics, I can see you had to make some tough choices wrt the livery, making it presentable without adding another hundred parts. Have to say, nice work with this.

    @ChiChiWerx double ping, but, I made the slats a bit complicated with the deployment, so they only deploy with flaps, lol.
    Speed loss during turns was achieved by an airbrake that extended more the more G's you pulled (It would extend fully at 13 or 15 i think.)

    However, I am not aware of the problem with the stall speed, when I tested, it felt fine so I didn't feel the need to tweak it any further.
    Thanks for your feedback :)
