BAC TSR-3 6.6

136k RamboJutter  10 months ago

Following on from the disasterous cancellation of the TSR-2, the British government realised just what a cockup they had made, the politician in question was investigated and found to be in receipt of bungs from General Dynamic and subsequently legal action was taken to revive the program, unfortunately by then the jigs and other equipment required to build the TSR-2 had been destroyed as required by the government.

The TSR-3 came into being as a smaller, cheaper development of the basic TSR-2 design philosophy but with the added advantage of rough takeoff ability and carrier capabability.

AG1 for flaps (not to be used over 300mph), AG2 for undercarriage doors, AG3 for arrestor Hook, AG4 for droptanks, AG5 for wing fold, AG6 for brake chute, AG7 for nav lights, VTOL up for airbrake, AG8 for reduced elevator throws at high speed.

    @RamboJutter yaw-induced-roll (especially at low airspeed) is a thing, don't shy away from it!

    @WNP78 thanks :) glad you liked it. The twin fins resulted in roll when rudder applied, I was going to cheat and hide 1 the fuselage but never got round to it... my bad. I should have put counter measures on ooops

    Excellent plane!
    Minor points:
    - Rudder ineffective
    - No countermeasures
    - The deceleration rate on the hook could be turned down a little bit.

    @ChiChiWerx :) Thanks, that's what I thought hence not tweaking the flight model, I like the slow speed handling bit, I nearly got it down on tiny.
