Some examples for inspiration F-86 Sabre, F-100 Super Sabre, Dassault Mystère, FMA IAe 33 Pulqui II, Supermarine Swift, Havilland Venom, F-86D Sabre ,F-9 Cougar, Hawker Hunter, MiG-15, MiG-17, F-84F Thunderstreak, Saab 32 Lansen, F3H Demon, F2H Banshee, Havilland Sea Vixen, Supermarine Scimitar, Saab 29 Tunnan

  • Can be fictional or replica.
  • Max 2 entry per person.
  • XML is allowed and expected.
  • Your entry must be more than 300 parts and less than 650 parts.
  • The weight and drag of the details can be 0.
  • The description is highly recommended and it will be specified: 1) Year of introduction, 2) Manufacturer, 3) Options, Specifications, Features.
  • Infinite fuel or negative weight is not allowed.
  • Instrumentation Mod is allowed

G-Force and Performance

  • Maximum G-force allowed in the aircraft, 7.5Gs
  • Maximum Speed, 1.000mph at 34.000feet

How to limit the G-Force of your plane


G-Force roll limited to 7.5G


G-Force pitch limited to 7.5G

It will be judged

  • Realistic model - 150pt - It is evaluated if the airplane has a behavior similar to reality, maneuvers correctly, its acceleration and speed are in accordance with the model, flight stability, operation of all its systems, correct air resistance. Does it fit the challenge rules for the type of aircraft?
  • Realistic weapons and behaviour - 30pt - The weapons used are those indicated in the challenge instructions. If yes, you have 30 points. If not, 30 points are subtracted.
  • Details, appearance, paint - 30pt - The general appearance of the plane is valued, if it could be a real plane even if it is fictional, details, color scheme used.
  • Build quality - 30pt - Is the plane construction correct? Have all the control surfaces been included to fly the plane well? There are no badly assembled parts?
  • Fair play - 30pt - Are the rules of the challenge respected? Fair play gives you 30 points

Tests

This challenge is special. We will test each aircraft to confirm that it is capable of performing the following maneuvers:

  • Stall spin. Your aircraft is capable of stalling when the aircraft has a critical angle of attack. +25 points

  • The hammerhead. Can your plane do this maneuver? +25 points

  • Tailslide. It will be tested whether the plane can fall over its tail. +25 points

Rewards

The 2 best aircraft from the western bloc (USA, Europe) and the 2 best aircraft from the eastern bloc (Russia, China) are chosen and will compete for the next prize.

  • Winner :: 5 Upvote + 3 Spotlight
  • 2nd place :: 5 Upvote + 2 Spotlight
  • 3nd place :: 5 Upvote + 1 Spotlight
  • 4nd place :: 5 Upvote

These four aircraft will be used in the multiplayer air battle to be held soon at SimplePlanes. Videos of the entire process, tests and especially the air battle with the winning planes will be recorded.

Hurry up!! what are you waiting to participate!!

    @mikoyanster
    Would you mind if I used the British De Havilland 'Fire Streak' missile? It was put into service a year after the AIM-9. I would have to build it myself, but I think I can make it a low part count.
    Is that okay?
