Air Tanker Challenge

This is my air tanker challenge. Your job is to design any aircraft (fictional or real) to fight fires. It can be jet powered or prop powered, it could even be a helicopter.

I know you can’t actually fight fires in simpleplanes.

The rules are simple, no more than 350 parts and no less than 80. You can exceed 350, as long as it runs on iOS. No mods, XML is welcomed and preferred. Has to be a successor or tag me with your aircraft or comment a link to it. You can’t use someone else’s aircraft.

Points you receive will be based on:
-looks 5pts (does it look good? Doesn’t appear to be hastily designed)
-performance 10pts (does it fly for awhile with no issues? Do I need to use a lot of trim? Is the CoL and CoM balanced?)
-creativity 5pts (is it a completely new design? Does it have a cool livery? Does it resemble the object you based it off of (if replica))

Deadline is October 7, 2019

Aircraft Already Submitted:
@TrislandianAlliance AT-25 Firehoser

@11qazxc Electric tanker

@Thelegitpilot13 C-65 Odyssey

    Not a gen; but a version. I have the first edition of iPad Pro, 9.7inch. The part count can go as high as you need, as long as it can run smoothly. @Thelegitpilot13

    @LordAidanYT what phone do you use? My 6S can handle 1000+ parts, if properly done.

    It has to run on iOS, thatʻs why. I mena you could exceed the limit but it still has to run on ios. I should change that @MaxB17

    Oh No, This Is Gonna Be Hard Because I Can't Go Below 80 Parts, Might As Well Uses @Randomusername ACS-53 Fletcher Spraying System And Change It With Water Instead Of "Fertilizer"
