A-27 'Thunker'

24.7k Walvis  8 months ago

With enough finesse even a brick can fly.

Description:
Here she is; the A-27 'Thunker' is designed as a the Eastern Federations main heavy CAS airframe. Her capacity to carry multipole metric tonnes of ordnance makes her a force to be reconned with. Besides the many ATGM’s, bombs, and unguided rockets, the ‘Thunker’ carries a set of AAM’s and two 20mm wing mounted miniguns. Along with her great offensive armaments, she posses of a lightly armoured skin and hundreds of flares.

Although the A-27 is a mighty beast of destruction and survivability, this does come at a severe cost to manoeuvrability. Her immense weight of almost 28 metric tonnes (about a quarter the weight of your mom, for those who do not use metric) means the Thunker has more resemblance to a flying brick than a tradition airplane.

Features:

Controls:
VTOL Down: Flaps

AG6: Ditch external weapons
AG7: Navigation lights

Note:
This is the first time ever that I made custom wings using fuselage blocks. If you have any tips or feedback, please share them with me!

    @DinoRoar65MYA Hi there! I'm really sorry, but I am honestly too busy to help this week; to much uni stuff. However, clicking here will redirect you to the biggest SimplePlanes Discord server. There will probably be somebody there who can help. :)

    Walvis, just wondering if I could have some help with simpleplanes on balancing the planes and how to make all these custom fuselage parts, I'm not that new (I had SP years ago) but I still don't know much. If you can help me I would appreciate it a lot.
