F/A-37 Queen Bee

17.1k Thelegitpilot13  2.6 years ago
Auto Credit Based on Thelegitpilot13's FA-37 Queen Bee -BLACKBACK-

After months of inactivity and work, I’ve finally completed it.

Armament:
2x AIM-120S SAMRAAM
1x Multirole Electromagnetic Launcher
1x M61A1 Vulcan Minigun

Grouping:
1. Ground Steering
2. EML Activation
3. AIM-120S Activation
4. Formation Lights
5. Catapult Hook Stowage (Activate immediately before takeoff on land, after takeoff on sea. Keep active)
6. Tailhook
7. Thrust Vectoring (must be active while wings are stowed)
8. Control Surfaces (must be deactivated when wings are stowed)


History:
The F/A-37 Queen Bee began as a project to incorporate stealth and supermaneuverability technologies. Using design features from the F/A-18 as a base, and technologies on the Su-47 Berkut, F-22A Raptor, and even the F-14 Tomcat, the Queen Bee project began on May 27, 2021. The intended goals were to command drones of similar design into battle as missile carriers, as well as carry an electromagnetic launcher/railgun system that allowed for targeting beyond visual range, provided a good aim. First flights began a year later, on June 7, 2022. With no delays, the project became the first stealth fighter to incorporate forward swept wing technology. It was introduced to service for the United States Navy in 2024 for sea trials, and introduced to the public a month later.


Variants:
A2A
A2G
UAV

I wish you extend a massive Thank-you to edensk, randomusername, and FranzPeterSiegfried for helping me in the initial steps of this project! Without them, this build would not be the way it is.

    @WSindustries Hmm... Well, that's certainly a crazy design. Since you haven't posted anything, just try your best in replicating what's in your head.

    @Thelegitpilot13 thanks for the advice i never thought you would respond but ok i will take my time instead of pumping out like 3 planes per day.

    @WSindustries Well, as you can probably see, I'm a pretty old user. I can see you're a fairly new user, so I'll give you some advice!
    .
    Quite a few of my builds took a few days to make, or maybe even a few weeks in relation to my latest project. Don't be afraid to just keep the build and work on it, rather than just push it out and expect results once it flies like other white users. Put details in to draw other users in, even if it does increase the part count. And make sure to show it off in some teaser forum posts to amp up the hype!
    .
    Also try experimenting with some crazy ideas! I mean, take this plane for instance. A tailless, variable geometry forward swept wing with thrust vectoring and stealth capabilities. It's a crazy idea, yet I was still able to make it something that got a lot of attention.
    .
    I can't wait to see what you make! Have a good rest of your day!

    @Diloph started as mine, I passed it to others to help me with XML. 1.9 didn’t exist yet, so I couldn’t mod yet. The only person that modified anything else was randomusername.

    @Thelegitpilot13 well, doesn't it auto credit someone else's build? if it is yours, looks fantastic!

    @Diloph Tagged yourself. This is me delving into higher part count builds, just to try it. Still mobile friendly as usual, as many of the parts don’t have drag or weight. Not sure what you mean by “this isn’t my build.” Others certainly helped me in key aspects, but this is still my design

    hold up, you are almost 10,000 already? just like two months ago your were silver. If I was going at your pace from when I started I would be platinum. @Thelegitpilot13

    @FranzPeterSiegfried I’d expect later, but my next build might help. It’s another usable fuselage art.
