105k SimpleFlow  5.6 years ago

Hey guys here us the 4th of my bomber project

This is the short stirling
Hopefully you enjoy

Note: DONT FLY CLOSE TO THE GROUND WHEN YOU DROP THE BOOM 50'S, THEY WILL CAUSE A CHAIN REACTION AND BLOW YOU UP!!!!!!!!!
And this needs a lot of runway to takeoff

Anyway

Controls:
1-3 + Vtol=Turrets
Also has:
25 Boom 50's
25 Boom 25's

History:


The Short Stirling was the first four-engined British heavy bomber of the Second World War.
The Stirling was designed by Short Brothers to meet an Air Ministryspecification from 1936. When the preferred design from Supermarine had to be abandoned, the Stirling was ordered for the RAF. It entered service in early 1941 but had a relatively brief operational career as a bomber, being relegated to second line duties from late 1943, when other more capable four-engined RAF bombers, specifically the Handley Page Halifax and Avro Lancaster, took over the strategic bombing of Germany

    @SimpleFlow Sweet, can't wait to see her! She partly inspired the Ukkonen Strategic Bomber I released. XD

    @SimpleFlow Oooh okay, still, you made a good choice though to make her wings a bit longer because I don't think SP's physics would allow it to take off even on a long landing strip if you had made it 1:1 scale. The Stirling's weakness was her short wingspan, being underpowered and having a relatively low service ceiling as a result. That's what happens when beaurocrats get involved in the specifics of an aircraft. Her short wingspan was the result of a prerequisite that the wingspan was to fit within a standard RAF hangar. <.<; lol 20 more bombers?! That's it, you've got a new follower!! XD

    Dude i just build her like that I didn't scale anithing

    Very nice, I've been asking for one of these! :-D Your's is a tad overscale but that can't be helped due to the weight of parts and fuel. However if you hadn't have scaled her up I highly doubt it would have been able to take off from our runways with a 99.08' wingspan using our game mechanics! lol
