VH-AX.1 Wyvern

Auto Credit Based on UnmanagedResevoir's VH-AX.1 Wyvern

The Wyvern is a single-engine, contra rotating, tandem seat, light aircraft. It’s designed for observation, reconnaissance, SAR, and light attack roles in which the latter was rarely used due to its lack of precise fire control systems and light armor especially around the cockpit. Most Wyverns entered service away from the front lines and instead were mostly used for the SAR roles and observation. Wyverns also proved to be unstable during some maneuvers and ended up being a limited production aircraft with only 43 units built and all are in service with the VH Aerospace Division’s 34th and 35th Recon Squadrons.

I’ve had this design in my mind for maybe a month now. I just wanted to get this done as the ship is taking all my time- enjoy

    @typeZERO I see what you did there, and I might- but the weapons on it are only unguided bombs and two gun pods, as in lore, it doesn't have a radar or any fancy targeting systems. Well maybe a targeting pod will do

    Can you create an Armed Version of this plane?
    A "Strike Wyvern" perhaps?

    @UnguidedCylinder Oh, it makes a great jet too. I replaced the props with a BFE150 engine and it performs well. With trim it can fly around a fairly low speeds (170 mph or so, low for a jet)

    @Treadmill103 thank you! I spent several weeks trying to refine the design as the first one I came up with was a bit rough
