Westland Wyvern S.4

12.5k KingOfTypos  14 days ago

History

The Westland Wyvern was designed to be a Strike Aircraft, originally carried the powerful Eagle piston engine, but due to its canceled production, it was fitted with the "just as powerful" Python Turboprop Engine for its later variants and received contra-rotating propellers. It saw limited production before being discontinued in 1958.

Controls

AG1 - Arrestor Hook
AG2 - Airbrake
AG7 - Folding Wings
AG8 - Cockpit Canopy
VTOL - Flaps
Trim - Trim

Constructed with EternalDarkness Fuselage slicing technique for added airfoil realism. All my builds starting from the FW190A8 in 1.11 update now featured this.


Added Gyro Gunsight from brains1209

Outro

The aircraft was a bit out of scale, but thanks to Tsuchiisan on teaching me on scaling aircrafts, i was able to "near" perfect its size and weight. Ive used the landing gear parts and "Airbrake"(hinge rotator) from Costr's Westland Wyvern to make it less tedious for me to build the entire aircraft. So credits to him for those parts!

Please feel free to rebuild the cockpit and tag me for me to see and download the successor! :D

    @Unrealgaming wait, again? weird, the last time i checked, it works fine on the catapult.

    Edit: apparently it only explodes when you outright choose the USS Beast catapult spawn location, not when you attach it on the move.

    @EternalDarkness i think this build shows how flexible your fuselage Slicing Wings technique are in terms of making paint schemes.
