MiG-21 SMT

33.9k Krmo  1.5 years ago

Presenting the Balalaika

Cheap, reliable, fast and forgiving, the MiG-21 was truly an aircraft worthy of its legendary appearance

The plane was adored by its pilots, having a tremendous flight envelope, all the way from 250kph at sea level to Mach 2 at 16 000m. It got its nickname after its similarity to the Russian instrument "Balalaika". As such, it featured a delta wing, supplemented by an all-moving tail, that was only added to decrease its stall speed as to accommodate the rugged runway requirements of the Soviet airforce.
It evolved from a pure interceptor to an air superiority fighter able to carry and deploy a various array of suspended armaments. This version features an improved engine and additional fuel. It was not as favored by its pilots as it had a higher positioned center of mass, thus being a bit harder to handle.

Features:

-a fully funky cockpit
-on point performance
-somewhat realistic handling
-custom missiles
-custom gun
-custom landing gear
-a non-boring non-silver camo
-working flaps
-stall horn
-AoA horn
-Engine startup simulation
-Compressor stall
-WEP mode
-G-simulation

    @GroBaleaze I'd say small is better for smoothness, but its easier to keep everything in place and shape with wider parts.

    @Krmo okay thanks, I used circular and the fuselage looked all 'wobbely'. I'll try to use hard corners. And what about the size, is smaller better or wider better

    @GroBaleaze I've used hard corners in the past, as they are easier to work with, but circular corners are way smoother. But it does take time and effort. For a sukhoi, I'd probably use hard corners, because it mainly has concave shapes.

    Yo, I was just looking at your older Mig 21 and noticed the paneling you did for the cockpit. So In checked out this newer Mig 21 and concluded that you mastered paneling. So the question is: Whats the best way to panel? I tried it with a Sukhoi but I really don't like it. Do you use Hard corners or circular? Whats the secret :p

    Whenever someone refers to the Mig-21 as the "Balalaika" it always reminds me of Back In The USSR by The Beatles.

    Very good But "gear" is very strange because The wheel part covers the gear cover part. (My "Gear" plane looks weird too)

    @Krmo Also. The Russian pilots hate this variant ! Because it is less maneuverable and harder to fly than most other MIG-21 variant ! That's why this plane was produced in very small number
