Dassault Etendard IVP

31.0k WarHawk95  8 months ago
Auto Credit Based on ollielebananiaCFSP's Dassault Etendard IVM

Wait for it plz...`

Quick history :

The Etendard IVP was the reconnaissance/tanker version of the Etendard IVM naval attacker.
ollielebananiaCFSP made an Etendard IVM a while ago so I decided to turn it into a IVP and put my flight refueling system on it.
So, you guys can consider it as a collab.
I really enjoyed working on this, except for the drogue part that kept exploding mid-air :/
Also don't play it on low physics
And use 'Realtime' reflections for better effect

My entry for @FireFast212's In-Flight Refueling Challenge!

Controls :
AG2 : folding wings
AG3 : hook
AG4 : airbrakes
AG5 : refueling drogue
AG6 : when AG5 on, stabilize drogue; when off, jettison tanks
AG7 : YEET SEAT
AG8 : lights

Half the credit goes to my homie ollielebananiaCFSP (go check him out he's awesome :) )

Featuring

The most complex and realistic flight refueling probe and drogue ever on SimplePlanes !
The probe is the standard NATO refueling probe, 1:1 scaled, you'll never find a better one (I took all the measurements on the probe of a Mirage IVP strategic bomber). It is fully functional and opens only when you put it in a drogue.
The drogue was made after the probe and features all the characteristics it is supposed to have (basket, drogue, pod, etc.)

Also featuring a working sling, that will detach automatically when the plane leaves the catapult of the Beast.
Surely the only sling on this website.

Edit : This build is ranked 5th in the challenge. Yay.

    @WarHawk95 I learned it the hard way jeje, I'm spending 4 neurons to see how I can do to put an AI and that automatically when it appears, her release the drogue, activate the magnet and see if I reach it.

    @PatriARG what do you mean ? You can't manage to plug in the drogue ?

    @WarHawk95 ok it's just the wish to be precise enough to send a small part of the plane to the drogue

    @KnightOfRen Roger.
    I confirm that I put "yeet seat" to refer to the pilot ejection system or ejection seat in the description of this aircraft.
