Hey there boys

Lazy builder missing for 4 months speaking, I'm still bored and now I'm working on other stuff thats killing my time to make builds, so they will be more far apart than a build every 5 days like it was before, but despite this, i feel happy to remake this beauty, so enjoy my build. ;)


So now talking about the build...

"The Lockheed P-38 Lightning is an American single-seat, twin piston-engined fighter aircraft that was used during World War II. Developed for the United States Army Air Corps by the Lockheed Corporation." Wikipedia.

Features

•Based on original manuals (such as blueprints, performance and mass) not entirely accurate tho.

•VR compatible ( I hope, because yokes are tricky to work in other builds it seems).

•Mostly revamped flight model, (some parts are the same as the original.) characteristics and also fuel consumption.

• considerably reduced part count (Mostly the bombs, they were too detailed for their own good; they come from a corrupted old build btw).

•And finally, brand new decals... That's it.

Armament

Little homage...

4x AN/M2 Browning 50. Cal machine guns
1x Hispano-Suiza M2C 20mm cannon
2x AN/M64A1 General purpose 500lb bombs.

Commands

AG1/2: Engines
AG4/5: jettison Bombs left and right respectively.
AG8: front wheel lock( not accurate but helpful.)
VTOL: Flaps

VR

Everything in commands section are present in the cockpit, so read the tooltips and you'll be fine.

Notes

•Takeoff speed:140mph (Real life speed.).
•Best climb speed: 160mph ( Also real life speed.).
•Landing: around 120mph without flaps, less with them.
•While carrying payload, it's recommended to use trim, avoiding constant adjustments.
Now that's it, have fun :).

    @WolfHunter9111 they can out-climb and are faster but they can't out-manouver them, the F6F existence came because of this
