At last, with a big delay due to me waiting for 1.7 parts, here is my build to celebrate 100 000 points. My most detailed work so far, and very functional.
Those of you who can't run this seven hundred part monster, find the simplified one at the end of my bio. It's called "FunSeries A-3 Cutlass"
Light attack aircraft designed for infantry support and swarming attacks over short and medium range. This nightmare of tanks is made of state of the art composites, with materials that significantly reduce its radar cross section. Fast and agile, and fitted with cutting edge electronic warfare equipment, this small aircraft has very high survivability on the battlefield. With armoured cockpit, and light 0 0 ejection seat, pilot survivability on this aircraft is estimated to 99.97%.
M.Corp A-3 Cutlass's usual weapon arangements are:
-Up to 4x19 unguided rockets in jettisonable pods;
-Up to 12 ATGMs;
-20mm or 30mm guns in pods;
-Up to 6 light anti-ship missiles;
-2x heat seakers, wide lock-on angle;
-Various unguided bombs;
-Various guided bombs.
Armament seen here is 4x19 rockets + 2x 23mm gun.
Features of this aircraft are:
-Full M.Corp Air Force insignia, with roundels, registration, and A-3 logo;
-Custom rocket pods, using new unguided rockets;
-Design based on F-5;
-Low takeoff/landing speed;
-Custom landing gear;
-Lots of xml edited parts. Take what you need, give credit for more complex ones.
-VTOL for flaps;
-V for flares;
-Activation groups to jettison weapons.
I have used this aircraft in various configurations to solve bombing training, bomber escort, missile training, bridge demolition, and rocket training missions.
Recommended usage against ground/sea targets: Slow down a lot, come in at an angle, and fire bursts of rockets.
Recommended usage landing: Fly slow. 1/2% power (with/without weapons), full flaps, come in at shalow angle.
I hope you'll enjoy this plane. If you do, please leave a comment. If you don't, tell me why.
