Blackburn Firebrand TF Mk. IV

19.6k KingOfTypos  2.2 years ago

A proposed Fighter for the Royal Navy, but due to its poor performance for its intended role (as well as being too late to cancel its development), it was decided to be used as a Torpedo Bomber in replacement of the Fairey Swordfish.

Controls:

VTOL - Flaps (Downward for increase lift)
AG7 - Arresting Hook

IMPORTANT NOTE:

-Increase throttle to 20%-30% to prevent nose from leaning forward too much.
-When tail is airborne, go full VTOL and Throttle.

Version with Missing Dome and antenna here

    @Pnicks15 No, no. It handles fine. I mean in real life the plane was dangerous and unsuitable for combat! But what you've done here is really quite good and I really like it.

    @F104Deathtrap thanks. Originally my plan was to build either one of the Westland Wyvern, Blackburn Firebrand, or the Sea Fury. As for the performance of the plane ingame, its most likely because of how light it is than the real one.

    You've done an excellent job here. In fact, I am convinced that your replica is actually much more than this plane deserves. In real life it was rubbish. Congratulations.

    @X4JB Oh well I guess I'm a frog ^^, but hey I it was a joke or a fact ? Saying that this plane WAS (and not "IS", that's why I thought you were talking about the build and not the plane) terrible is a fact not a joke. So please learn what a joke is, stay polite and have a nice day.

    @ollielebananiaCFSP It was a joke you imbecile. You can even see that I upvoted this build, but no, you just jumped on the fucking hate train calling me "mean". This plane in real life is terrible. That's why I said that it's terrible. I can't believe I'm dissecting a fucking frog right now, but when we can't even appreciate a basic joke any more I have to say something about it.

    "cursed the spotlight limit..."


    That looks really good, the smoothness and the paint job also looks nice
