[ Soviet twinjet light (torpedo) bomber derived from the Tupolev '73', the failed competitor to the Ilyushin Il-28 'Beagle'. Exported to China]

Controls:

1 Open/Close Weapon Bay (Activate Bombs)
2 Carpet Bombing (Only when Bay is open)
Fire Air to Ground Rockets RATO Rocket Assist for TakeOff (Bay Closed only)
3 Eject RATO
5 Landing Gear Airbrake (Default ON)
6/7 Engines (Default ON)
8 Lights ON/OFF
VTOL down Flaps (2 fixed positions)
FireGuns Rear Turret /FireWeapons - Front Cannons


Features

Basic Interior

(W - Warning light/Alarm)
Fully functional, 100 parts (including the navigator camera)


Rear Turret aka "Butt Gun"

Formula fromNagisa/AsteroidB. Formula is huge, 4000 chars, Do not open the turret rotators menu, they will glitch and turn into floppy.
Insane accuracy sometimes, can destroy one mach target at a distance of 5-7 miles, sometimes cannot hit anything. It works best with close targets with a similar heading.
Turret is a fun addition. It shoots fast (bullet accuracy) and deadly accurate (most of the time). If you want realism, you just can forget about the turret. In real life was almost useless. Human handled, it can hit only fighters that get in guns range. When the air to air guided missile was invented, the turret role was kaput


Accurate Flight Model

Realistic takeoff distance/speed also landing angle/speed.
Realistic maximum and climbing speed. Thanks to PointlessWhyshouldi
Realistic Roll, Pitch and Turn rate. (I hope). Also plane loses energy on hard turns.

Complex Construction
Most of it. Custom everything, from wings, control surfaces (and tabs), custom interiors for cockpit, bomb bay, landing gear housing etc... WarHawk95 helped with all kinds of details, insisted on weapons specs too

(Bomb Bay Interior)

RATO

Rocket Assist for TakeOff - Ideally, you should use it only for takeoff on short runaways. If you start airborne, eject them with Ag-3. Or not! RATO provides extra acceleration for 12 seconds, after that it self-ejects.

    This is amazing. My dad (rip) was Russian and lived in the Soviet Union, he had a story of him swearing one of these flew over his house. (Apartment if you will)
    All that aside, amazing work. I am honestly impressed with the detail you put into this, everything about it is just amazing.
    Great work, Bogdan.
    (And to the others that helped!)

    My grandpa would tell me stories flying this plane. He'd always have fun with his comrades in arms inside the plane. Now he's dead. I miss him.

    @WarHawk95 How does the delayed landing gear work on the plane and does it require XML?

    I hope you don't mind but I'm using this for screenshots with my MiG-9. I'll probably put a gyro on it for AI use.

    This is amazing! All of the great stuff this has with only 748 parts, that is awesome. The interior is great too with all functioning gauges. Overall this features great realism yet still maintains a simple design. Once again, great job! ;)

    I’ve found that the glass nose assembly is a brilliant place to retrofit Snowflake’s bombsight!
