His Majesty's Aircraft.”Strange Encounter” joins the fleet to provide point defence and ground attack/interdiction capabilities. The craft, with its crew of 2, is armed with 6 forward firing machine guns, 2 forward firing rotary cannon and 6 missiles. The outer starboard turret houses a large calibre cannon which can be rotated downwards to fire at ground targets; this is operated by the rear crewperson via the sighting scope mounted to the fuselage.
For this build, I was hoping to find a way to “sight” the cannon turret from the small “viewing scope” on the side of the fuselage but couldn’t figure a way to do it. Compromised by nudging a camera into the turret itself with a view roughly level with the cannon barrel. Note to DEVS: camera with an adjustable POV please! Also didn’t use tracer in the cannon; looks weird in flight. Lots of fakery in this build!
