Dassault Mystère IVA

Dassault MD.454 Mystère IVA

Click for version with fixed rudder

The Mystère IVA was a French transonic fighter jet which first flew in September 1952. It served the French, Israeli, and Indian armed forces and they were used extensively in combat until the 1980s. Some of the action they saw was during the 1956 Suez Crisis, the 1967 Six Day War, and during the 1965 Indo-Pakistani where they achieved scores of air to air victories.

This is my personal favourite version of the Mystère and possibly one of my favourite aircraft from its era. I tried to make it as true to scale as possible but of course there are some errors (1:1 scale in SP is challenging as I just learnt).

Through quite a lot of tweaking, I managed to make its flight characteristics as similar to what I believe the characteristics of this aircraft were like. It flies most realistically between 500-6500ft. It will bleed off speed the harder you pull back or push on the pitch control (it bleeds off more when you pull back like it should in real life) and it accelerates slowly the way a jet of its era should. The speed does become too fast once you are above 7500ft though but due to the way SP works, you have to decide whether you want it optimised for lower or higher altitude.

Thanks to @RicardoAs1515 for the awesome screenshots!

I do hope you enjoy it! Please leave your feedback :)

    @CrushburnHQ pretty thin. If you want an exact number you can click on them and see the dimensions. You can make them as thick or thin as you want. I added them separately after I made the main fuselage. Also feel free to leave an upvote if you like it hahaha

    @masotan15 maybe I misunderstood what you were asking. Can you explain one more time if my answer didn't make sense?

    @masotan15 its just division. Use a calculator or google for it instead of doing it mentally. If you type 33,721/5,910 into google it will show you the answer. Otherwise you can put in 33,721 ÷ 5,910 into a calculator. I hope this helps :)

    @masotan15 do you mean 33,721/5,910? If yes it’s equal to roughly 5.71
