Focke-Wulf Fw BMW803 Fighter (UAF)

9,320 vcharng  1.2 years ago

For updated version please visit here
changelog v1.1:
- re-connected the stall warning siren, it should now sound normally.
- adjusted ammo counter in a more intuitive way; the MG151 has been moved to the wing roots, so their ammo are shown on the outer meters.

This is the first aircraft of my "parallel world series", a Focke-Wulf BMW 803 fighter with Union Air Force markings.
A full background story can be seen here.
The aircraft belongs to Wright Isle Squadron (hence the unit badge that resembles Wright Flyer). The yellow cross is the pilot's personal mark, referring to his knight ancestors.

Features:
- Good performance (740 km/h sea level, <9 second 360 turn)
- Capable of post-stall maneuvers (Pugachev's Cobra)
- Good weapon loadout
- Original paint job
- Authentic AFN2 navigation system and other functional instruments.
- FT constant-speed propeller with engine idling.

Control:
Normal flight control (NOT RECOMMENDED WITH KEYBOARD, NOT TESTED WITH MOBILE)
AG1: Flap
AG2: Supermaneuverbility switch (release elevator angle limit)
AG3: R4M rocket salvo (explode at 1.2km, suggest fire at about 1.6 km for head-on targets)
AG8: Engine ignition
Trim: trim

Armaments:
2x 30mm MK103 autocannon (50 rounds per gun w/ functional ammo counter)
2x 20mm MG151/20 autocannon (250 rounds per gun w/ functional ammo counter)
24x R4M "Orkan" air-to-air rockets

To enjoy the benefits of post-stall maneuvers to the maximum, I recommend adding a simple wing from the Simple Wings mod, and turn on the "wing for effects only" to enable high-AOA condensation effects.

    @TheOwlAce Well the actual plane was like that.... I'd agree that having a frame would look better though.

    Amazing work. Good detail. If any advice i could give is to maybe put a frame on the cockpit so its not just a big smooth bubble. Besides that. Great.

    Parallel universe setting? That sounds like a Mr. Stark level of genius. Hope it goes well! @vcharng

    @Notnoob1000 That's why I need to give this plane a parallel universe setting.
    In the parallel world there is a different set of physics (which is basically SP physics).

    Very nice, well done!

    Edit: Quite challenging flying it, a small amount of pitch may turn the plane 180 degree quite easly. I would add also a more smooth shock device of the landing gear to support the plane mass while landing. > Keep up the good work!
