Year of introduction:
2035


Manufacturer:
Krachenburcher Enterprises


Armament:
4x Cleaver

Background:
Since people in 2035 actually get along and have no traditional need for weapons of mass destruction, Krachenburcher Enterprises was forced to create a series of war games to stay in business. In these events, teams use unmanned, remote-control vehicles to wage devastating destruction on each-other's artificial archipelagos on one of Jupiter's moons. And thus, the KVA-1A 'Bear' was born.


It can be folded down to fit inside carriers, cargo planes and hidden bases.

It is equipped with parachutes to be used in the event of engine failure or paradrop operations.
image


Rear-mounted auxiliary turbojets enable medium range operations and speedy getaways.
image


Ordinance is hidden in either interior bays or external pods.

    Hello again! It's been awhile since we have last talked and I haven't been posting regularly, but I intend to once I can find participates. I took into consideration what you said. If you are looking for a more reasonably weaponized version of the "Black Phantom (UCAV)" aircraft, then please visit this link: https://www.simpleplanes.com/a/yuuWUR/Black-Phantom-2-UCAV
    Read the description for more information. Controls for this new aircraft are the same as the old one and performance was not compromised. Thanks and enjoy!

    I trust that you have had a day to try out the new "Black Phantom (UCAV)"? What do you think? How did I do? Did I make it your dream aircraft, or did I just ruin your life with this horrible machine and you never want me to post ever again. Seriously now, I want your honest opinion. I value your feedback, and it helps me to progress in what I do! I look forward to hearing back from you soon. Thanks again for allowing me to work on this marvelous aircraft. Fly safe my friend! -SCIGUY101-

    @FLYGUY101 Just XML modding. If you have overload or an XML editor, just type "Activate1" into the input

    @LiamW
    Question, under "input control", you can choose an "activation group" and choose the "input" that you want it to run by. I've noticed that you have made some of the "input settings" run strictly by "activation groups". For example, when you you activate "AG1", the weapon bays open up. How did you set the "input" to run off of "Activate1"? Did you use a mod? If so what is the name of the mod that you used. If not, then how can I do that?

    Side Note:
    I've been reading the comments section lately, and I discovered that you tried to make the aircraft hover at 50% throttle. I will try my best to optimize the settings of the aircraft to get that wonderful number of 50! My goal is to make your dream aircraft, the kind of craft that you wanted to make. I will see what I can do and I will add it to the next update list that I post. That's all I wanted to say. Fly safe my friend!

    @LiamW
    I have been working on your aircraft for about 6 hours now, and it's starting to come along. I apologise for not posting a list sooner, but you know, life... it's busy. I still have a lot more to come, and I really think you'll like the improvements that I've made. Following this message, I will be posting a list of all the changes made to your aircraft. With this list will come different symbols. Here is what they mean. This symbol, "✓" means that something has been completed. This symbol, "•" means that something is under specific testing. This symbol "×" means that something has been abandoned or postponed. Anything with "×" or "✓" will be taken off of the next update list. This way, you will know exactly how close your aircraft is to being completed. Hope this helps!

    Thank you for allowing me to repost your aircraft. It might take me anywhere between 2 days to a week to complete this project. Please note that all my projects are done off of my Android device, and any changes made to your aircraft will be towards the benefit of it.
    If you're interested, you can view my most recent project, "Blue Fury" by "barreto2016". Read the comments section to understand the how to fly the aircraft. Here's the link: https://www.simpleplanes.com/a/r7tTF6/Blue-Fury
    Now I am new. I recently registered to the Simple Planes website in order to post some of my projects. I've been modifying people's projects for awhile now, and I thought I should start sharing them with the world. Anyway, enough of my ramblings, I best get to work! ;-)
    I will update you on the project as time goes by. You will receive a daily update list on the progress of your aircraft. I will post minor instructions later on to help you understand the update list that you will be receiving. This list will help you understand what components have been added to the aircraft, what components are being tested, and what has been completed. This way you will know exactly how close the project is to being ready to post. Thanks again!

    Hello fellow flyer! I would like to improve your aircraft. What I like to do is try to improve others creations to make something more user-friendly, or make it better overall, then I will repost their project. You see, I'm not the best at building planes from scratch, and I like the challenge of making something perform at it's best... So with your permission, will you let me repost your aircraft after I have improved it? I will include that you were the original creator and also include the aircraft's original name, if I decide to rename it. That's all! Thanks!
