Side notes:

  • For the sake of functionality, the wings(Fuselage) are weightless to keep the foldable feature, in return, if you hit the ground too hard and/or hit the wing on the ground, it will get messed up.
  • Be noted that this isn't as armored as you think, the fuselage of this thing only has 100hp(each).
  • No custom LG, shut up, I'm lazy.

Features:

20mm Gatling with smoke:

Inspired off of the GAU-8, I made a 20mm Gatling gun with the same "power" the A-10's GAU-8 has.

Foldable wings:

It can be carrier based, so obvs, why not?

    - A bit of an issue: If you fire countermeasures too fast, you're loadout will explode.

    I thought by foldable wings my non-working head quickly dismisses a swing wing

    @Beanz17 It was meant to be a remake of the A-10, but I thought of giving it a different look and model instead
