Gunship Challenge, 1K special (Closed)

5,006 Connster3  3.5 years ago

I have finally made it to 1,000! (Not a lot, I know). To mark the occasion, I am creating a challenge: make a gunship that can take out the convoy on Krakabloa and the USS Beast escort group.

The rules:
no guided missiles - only cannons (xml modded is ok), rockets, and guns.
Must have enough fuel to take off from Yeager airport, destroy the convoy, destroy the escort group, and land at Wright airport (no infinite fuel boxes).
Max 2 entries per account.
Part count must be between 100 - 450 (mobile friendly), no exceptions.
No mods besides xml.
Does not have to be a successor, but please try. If not, just tag me in the comments of your plane.

Scoring:
flight performance / speed - 1-10
Creativity - 1-10
Firepower / effectiveness - 1-10
Aesthetic / looks - 1-10

Due date: December 14, 2017 (my birthday!)

Reward: all entries will receive 1 up vote from me, however, because I am a small account, I cannot offer a grand prize, I will announce the top 3 in the comment section here on December 15.

Please share, Good luck, and Enjoy!

    Right. One issue. I cant download the challenge due to it being over 1000 parts. I get a “this will brick your phone” warning. This makes it impossible for me to make mine a successor. Wound you be willing to accept my entry if I upload it and tag you in the comments? @Connster3
