CONTROLS

VTOL up for flaps / VTOL down for sweep
AG1 / AG2 / AG3 for missiles / Camera 1/2/3
AG5 Drogue parachute
AG8 toggles autopilot while you control the guided missiles

WINGS

Use VTOL slider to control variable geometry wings. Up for flaps, down for full sweep, neutral for normal flight.

THROTTLE
Normal Operational setting is 90%
Afterburner engages at 100% throttle

HANDLING
Aircraft will lift off between 175 and 200mph IAS with full flaps
Stall speed varies but speeds below 400IAS are only recommended for takeoff and landing. Maximum speed with afterburner and full sweep is between 1200 and 1400mph IAS depending on circumstances.

To save fuel, normal flight parameters are as follows: Neutral VTOL position, 90% throttle

For supersonic flight, engage afterburner at 100% throttle and move wings to full sweep (VTOL down).

Landings procedure is 30-50% throttle as needed, flaps between half and full as needed. Approach speed should be 300mph with touchdown around 200mph. USE ACTIVATION GROUP 5 FOR DROGUE CHUTE

WEAPONS

This aircraft is armed with 3 Raduga Kh-22 standoff missiles capable of destroying surface targets from extreme ranges and beyond visual distance of the aircraft itself.

Launch Procedure as follows
-Set aircraft on a steady heading and into a mild climb
-Engage the LAUNCH AUTOPILOT by DISABLING ACTIVATION GROUP 8
-Select the proper camera and activate the missile.

Camera 1 / Missile 1 / AG 1
Camera 2 / Missile 2 / AG 2
Camera 3 / Missile 3 / AG 3

Tailgun
The twin barrel GSh-23 reciprocating autocannon is used to deploy chaff and flare countermeasures

    Dude, leave FeiWu alone. He makes good challenges, and credited james EVERYWHERE HE COULD for the C180. Its like you're hating on low point users. Btw, you blocked me on discord??!

    @KnightOfRen They designed the whole plane more like a fighter than a bomber in order to reduce drag. That's the revised ductwork. Originally it had inlets like the F-4 Phantom. Inlet design is crucial for supersonic performance.

    @F104Deathtrap Mind if I borrow your wings for a project. Not the fuselage wings, but the actual wing parts?

    @Ccdc I have all the control surfaces set to AG8 so that when you turn it off you basically disconnect the controls. I also have a gyroscope set up to activate when AG8 turns off, that way the plane flies nice and level instead of doing anything scary while the controls are turned off. Between the afterburners, wing sweep, flaps, missiles and trim, there's a lot to keep track of so I tried to make the controls as simple as possible. Funky trees makes it much easier, this is a great time to get into the game.
