With the evolution of RAF requirements and equipment it was decided that the RAF required an aircraft with similar abilities as the F-22 program, the result was the BAE systems Cyclone.

    @Megamonster thanks :) bit of everything really, usually start with a real aircraft and just sort of build my own from there.

    How do you come up with these ideas? Do you make them up from scratch, take ideas from the internet or just modify existing planes or plans?Anyway , your planes are AWESOME!@RamboJutter

    @Dimkal yeah I wanted something pointy to match the plane, the sr71 has a pointy cockpit so I made something similar, a round cockpit just looked out of place. Rudder was an oversight... oops

    This looks a lot like the jets from Cal of duty : Advanced Warfare

    @RamboJutter General shape and configuration is amazing! Flight behavior is excellent, though I'd like to have some yaw control (pilot's POV speaking). The biggest WTF is the cockpit...it looks so unrealistic and funny! I bet the F-2 variant will incorporate some changes on that.

    @Mmdben bit this isn't one of those planes and it has massive advantages. I hate gear that clashes with doors, this fixes that perfectly, horses for courses and all that.

    Do you mind if I use your landing gear in my next build if I give credit

    @RamboJutter from you point of view you're right,but.......you said it it will conflict with the flight style on some planes ,so it's best to be avoided.

    @Mmdben I disagree, if this was say, a ground attack aircraft or a trainer then I could understand how there would be a conflict between auto gear and flight operability, but, this is a high speed/altitude interceptor. The only time it's going slow is for take off or landing, if it's flying low what's the point of the stealth design?

    @NANOMAN I have to say that perhaps using a permalink would make it easier to see where the comment is...

    @RamboJutter in more detail about why all the same automatic chassis is bad, I wrote under this post: https://www.simpleplanes.com/a/C7RWA4/F-15C-Eagle-Demon-Lord

    Great plane, but automatic gear isn't good, you can't fly low and slow with it......but it'll be great to have automatic flaps!

    @NANOMAN no it doesn't :p it lets me sequence rotation and opening/shutting of doors. If your landing at high speed you've got it wrong, if it retracts before your airborne you have overstressed the undercarriage due to speed I.e. you have got it wrong.
