E-3 Sentry 2.0 (1:1 ish Scale)

1,484 AJosh92FS  2.2 years ago
Auto Credit Based on weebabyseamus's KC-10 Mobile

Been inactive for the past six months, so this is my little comeback. This a modified version of @WeeBabySeamus 's KC-10 Extender 2.0 (Sorry I used your aircraft as a base again, but it just looks so tempting). I made it to be an AWACS E-3 Sentry. Big thanks to @WeeBabySeamus for the KC-10 2.0 as I used as the base, @HellFireKoder for the awesome fine tuner mod, @Cedy117 for I am using the infinite rotators again, and @SpiritusRaptor for the Flares.
List of modifications (many are using the fine tuner mod, and some are XML edited)
- Added 3 more engines
- Added the rotators and AN/APY-1 Radar
- Added Bulges an details to make it look like E-3
- Added Flares
- Added GPS Map (You need to install from steam workshop, GPS Map by WNP78) You can see the maps on the additional camera inside the aircraft.
- Changed the Elevator systems, to allow rotators used for trim and increase in elevator tab area for better pitch due to heavier weight

List of controls
AG 1 Flaps
AG 2 air brakes controlled by VTOL and reverse thrust activated with brakes
AG 3 Pitch trim by VTOL
AG 4 Empty
AG 5 Flares
AG 6 Navigation lights
AG 7 Landing lights

Trim controls the roll, use it to compensate the aircraft as it tends to roll to the right a bit. Besure to use rudder on take off or it will go off course.

Sorry if I make E-3 again, but it's just I like the looks of this military plane so much :)

    @TMach5 I see.. so that's why it feels so heavy moving around this aircraft. Thanks, great find.

    IDK why it is not listed as successor to the KC-10 Extender 2.0 ....

    Beautiful! FYI, to anyone having trouble flying this beauty because of weight, open the XML file and change all instances of massScale="5" to massScale="0.5" . That will lighten the load on the engines. Great post, @AJosh92FS
