Cyclops Prop Fighter

27.8k SteadfastContracting  5.1 years ago

Well this turned out better than expected for me. I really like how this flies, it feels like it could be from WWII. This was my first try at making a custom-ish looking engine. Feel free to use the extra provided model, no credit needed although it's appreciated.

HISTORY/BACKSTORY-
-Meant to be an American equivalent to the British *Gladiator*, the *Cyclops* fighter was very capable and found many uses as a night fighter and level/dive bombing attacks. A bit outdated at the start of the war, it still saw plenty of action as it was already equipped as the standard plane for many bases and marine ships. Pushed out of service later on by the P-51's and Corsairs and other such planes, the survivors are still (fictionally) enjoyed in scattered air shows.

FINAL NOTES-
-It's fun to fly and I do hope you download and try the YAW. It works slower than the last plane with working YAW, but it's supposed to be from WII so..... yeah.
Have fun!

    Thanks for that, I have no idea how you saw all of these though. They are all so old.

    @SteadfastContracting I was looking at RailfanEthan's comments, the multiplayer mod, and the twin towers made by Tmach I think.So that's why I found you.

    @SteadfastContracting I up voted it because I liked the engine and it was very detailed. I also liked the Guns on the front. I came by your account when I saw you up voted anot her plane and I was curious too see your planes. So I clicked it, and here I found this!

    1. When something of mine gets attention, it prompts me to look at that person's planes for something I haven't properly looked at yet, so I often end up upvoting something old.
    2. It's great.

    The extra engine is a free copy of the one I made for this plane.
