Description

A jet I made inspired by the real life F-15 STOL/MTD, probably also my best looking plane so far.

I tried to make the flight model on this more realistic than on my older jets, so you probably won't be able to do any 40g turns with it.


Payload

Weapons: 1x M1A1 Vulcan, 2x SRAM, 4x LRAM
Other: 3x Fuel Tank, 48x Flares, 48x Chaff


Controls

Trim: Trim
VTOL: Flaps
Brake
—[While on ground]: Canard Brakes
Throttle
—[0–90%]: Normal Power
—[90–100%]: Afterburner
AG1: Lights
AG2: Canopy
AG3: Speed Brake
AG4: Disable TVC
AG5: Jettison SRAM
AG6: Jettison LRAM
AG7: Jettison Fuel Tanks
AG8: Arm Weapons

Inputs not listed don't do anything special.

Notes

  • Take-off is easier if you disable the TVC since you won't have to deal with tail strikes.
  • I removed the roll functionality from the engines since it was basically useless.

    Thanks, I'm glad y'all liked the plane.

    Gotta admit, it’s a nice aircraft, very well designed. Only thing is, I didn’t notice any improvement on maneuverability at higher speeds even with TV turned on. Checked my physics settings and they’re turned high.

    @IceCraftGaming I always end up forgetting something, at least this is an easy fix with the XML Update button.

    @IceCraftGaming Using reference images while building makes a big difference it seems.
