For the 4th Generation Fighter Challenge

In 1974 American Aircraft Industries began private development of a supersonic attack aircraft. In early 1976 they had a design and it was proposed to the USAF. The Air Force liked it and provided funding for a prototype. In January 1977 the prototype was unveiled to the public. By March that year it was ready to take its first flight. On March 21st 1977 the prototype A-33A took off at 12:33 pm for the first time. The USAF ordered 750 of them. In 1978 it reached it's initial operational capability. That year several other countries placed orders. West Germany ordered 204, Japan ordered 120, South Korea 98, Belgium 20, and it was proposed to Canada but it wasn’t ordered. It was able to carry nukes as well as provide close air support which made it great for reducing the number of types of aircraft in any Air Force which made it a very practical aircraft.

Armament (This configuration only):

1x GAU-8 Avenger
4x Mk.84 General Purpose bombs

Flight:

This is probably my best Aircraft not just in detail but in flight characteristics. Unlike some of my other builds this is possible to land without much practice. It has the most realistic performance and is also the most stable.

Controls:

Ag.1: Afterburner
Ag.2: Wheel steering unlock
Ag.3: Jettison fuel tank and weapons
Ag.4:
Ag.5:
Ag.6:
Ag.7:
Ag.8: Lights
VTOL: Flaps

    @Darkhound I haven't found out its exact speed but at around 1000ft it will do around Mach 1.5

    @Mtech Thank you. I’m not a newbie to the game but I am to the site. I’ve had the game since October 2019. The F-143 was my first build where I spent a lot of effort and actually figured many of the features out.
