SM Falcon Bomber

30.5k TheAceOwl  1.2 years ago

A older warbird put to good use, this seaplane has been around for 20 years and is still in use with the Serpent Marauders. Known for its good payload, decent speed and great range, its used as a long range raider, cargo plane and sometimes troop transport.

Crew-5, Pilot, navigator/bow gunner, engineer/top gunner, bombardier, near gunner(works both guns).
Payload- up to 4000Lb of bombs/2 torpedoes/2000Lb of cargo. Can carry up to 15 passengers.

Controls- Trim for flaps, VTOL for turrets. 1=lights, 3 drops the payload.

I spent a good 5 hours making and reworking this one and its a lot of fun. Word of caution, make sure when you're in the air, not to nose over too quickly or it will dive forwards. If this happens, throttle down and pull up, giving opposite rudder if spinning.

Enjoy!

    This was a fun one to play with! I don't know why it didn't get more attention. It's appearance is unique, the turret arrangement is neat, I liked the staggered bombing control and she's really smooth to land and take-off. Great work!
