(sorry in advance for long description)
This is number 4 of the "Blueprint Builds" and, while resembling the V-8 "Piranha", the V-9 has a slightly different design for a slightly extended purpose. The V-9 takes off like an ICBM rather than an standard jet and is not able to land. Had two types of attack, Dive and Ram.
AG-6 activates the dive chutes and AG-7 activates the drag chute and the aircraft has infinite flare and chaff which can be useful for both modes. The orange side is to easily identity the top of the aircraft from an exterior view.
DIVE MODE: (yeah it's copied and pasted from previous build, pls nu kill me)
"What dive?" I hear you asking.during Dive mode (tutorial here: https://youtu.be/4Ku_23TXl3A ), the aircraft is designed to fly high above it's target and when you are directly on top of the target cut engines and use AG-6 to deploy dive chutes. this will almost instantly stop the aircraft and put it into a slow dive.once in this dive, use pitch and roll (use it heavily; the aircraft is going so slow that simply rolling might take a while. maxing throttle makes this a but easier but makes your descent and strike time shorter) to aim at the target (cockpit view highly recommended) then start firing rockets. when you are done or when you start getting too close to the ground max throttle (if you haven't already) and deactivate AG-6 then pitch out of the dive.
Ram mode, however, works as I'm sure you can expect. You ram your target. The aircraft is loaded with bombs and torpedos for this purpose and all you have to do it guide the rocket to it's target. There is the standard diving for tanks etc. and there is also my favorite method, torpedo style for naval targets (Tutorial here: https://youtu.be/NggII4_C--I )
To perform this, takeoff as usual and locate your target. While still a distance away, cut engines and get close to the water, slowing to somewhere around 200-300mph. At this point, gently touch into the water and try not to take any sudden moves until you have stopped bouncing and slowed down to about 150mph (if you are bouncing). Then, max throttle (don't worry about the shaking. It will go away when you speed up) and start using roll very gently to turn towards target and glide across the water to ram it. (Overusing roll will cause the aircraft to roll over. Also, once in the water, you won't get out easily.)
