HELLO

The beautiful (and famous for being bad) Gloster Javelin ! I did my best to make this plane as good looking as in real life and with good flight caracteristics, and I think I did it pretty well ! :D

Activate1 for the afterburner and maaaax speeeeed (this plane can't even reach Mach 1)
Trim for the Trim
VTOL for the flaps




Little page of history :

The Gloster Javelin is a twin-engined T-tailed delta-wing subsonic night and all-weather interceptor aircraft that served with Britain's Royal Air Force from the mid-1950s until the late 1960s. The last aircraft design to bear the Gloster name, it was introduced in 1956 after a lengthy development period and received several upgrades during its lifetime to its engines, radar and weapons, which included the De Havilland Firestreak air-to-air missile.

    @DanDaFreakinMan Yeah this plane really doesn't looks like a fighter. The lag may be because of the drag points and it's an old build, I know there are a lot of defaults on it. At the time I wasn't as good as now for making decent landing gears.

    Looks and flies great! I really like the look of Javelin. I keep thinking it's a bomber for some reasons. Despite being around 500 parts, this thing lags me quite a bit though. Also its landing are weak and will break if you land a bit too rough

    I’m pretty sure the rudder had a trim on top to prevent the elevator from smacking it in -G pitch, but it is amazing otherwize!

    @Alta2809 Oh this is a funny fact, so this plane could go supersonic only when the pilot isn't a pilot, why not

    Fun fact, this plane did go super sonic whilst the pilot wasn’t at the controls and was focused on an oxygen supply failure!
