Arel A-17 "Bird Watch"

Description:
The Arel Manufacturing Company Arel A-17 is a 4-engine, all-weather, Airborne early warning and control aircraft made for the Kulsa Air Force, It is still being used today.


Abilities:
The Arel-A17 can perform Aerial reconnaissance, airborne electronic warfare, and weather reporting.


Activation groups:
AG1: turn on the radar dish (don't turn on the ground as it will rotate the plane, I don't know how to fix it).

Rest are normal controls.

"Hunter 1, multiple enemy fighters are approaching, engage with caution"

What is an AWACS?

Enjoy!

    @Rjenteissussy named because while flight testing, the crew turned on the side cameras and saw a bird flying alongside it.
