RJ Bumblebee 2.5

217k RamboJutter  14 days ago
Auto Credit Based on asteroidbook345's Tri-engine Challenge [Open]

Introduction

"No, an F-104 with 2 JATO rockets is not a trijet" but 3 Tunnans put together with F104 wings / tail is =)

(no i haven't copied my fuselage from a previous build - all new fuselage here)

3 Engines - tick,
Jet aircraft - yep.

Big, bulky and made of lots of tubes we have the RJ Bumblebee. Armed with 6no 50mm cannons, it packs a punch but its hardly a fighter due to the weight and size, used primarily as an attack aircraft but also for bomber interception etc. Its not fast, its not really slow, Pretty much an "average" aircraft in all flying characteristics but fun to play with.

Shown in the "display" colour scheme just to be different

Controls

Basic controls, VTOL dn = flaps, LG = landing gear, barring that all as simple as can be.

(I was going to seperate the engines onto a different control group for each but as they are so close together there was no discernable benefit to doing this)

    Swedes:

    Tunnan is outdated, we need to replace it with something better

    RamboJutter:

    3 barrels are better than 1 barrel

    This by far is the best example of "why the hell not" I have ever seen.

    ... Yes that's a WH40k reference. And also yes, the intakes looks rather... unnerving, at least to me.
