    Sounds like a fun opportunity to explore some more of Kerbin. I think I'm going to see if I can get my F-35 VTOL working well enough to land in these spots.

    You could do that in a few minutes by just editing the .cfg files. And regarding FAR, I think in most aspects it's actually a lot more intuitive for plane building than the stock system, which essentially calculates drag based on part count. FAR *does* make control much more difficult, so you really need a fly by wire mod like Atmosphere Autopilot if you're going to do fighters with very low stability.

    Yep! @a10t2 I wasn't sure how FAR would effect the scores when I created the challenge, it looks like they're pretty even actually.

    That should probably count as a rocket engine, but i totally want to see how you're planning on doing it with ions lol! Well, @a10t2, I got you. Barely. Album Direct Hit 100 Attack Altitude 24 Mission Time -24 Radar Cross Section -15.25 Heat Signature -10 Cost Savings 10 TOTAL 84.75

    Y'all bring up some good questions. Its all for fun so I don't want to limit the possibilities too much, but in the interests of keeping scoring somewhat even, let's go with this: 1. The final weapon must be launched from an aircraft. 2. Mission time will be measured as touchdown of the aircraft OR impact of the weapon on the temple, whichever is last. @Pds314 @KenjiKrafts

    Well, @Kuznetsov Space program did launch his plane from an aircraft carrier here, so I'll allow that if you start from East of KSC. But the final weapon must be launched from a plane, it can't just be an ICBM.

    I think I have an aircraft that's fast enough to beat you, but I'm struggling with successfully deploying a missile at hypersonic speeds.

    Here's an F-22 design that I've been working on. Features working missile bays, shown here with two of my cruise missiles.

    @KingDominoIII nice! Looks like you forgot the heat signature penalty however? Should be 58.7 pts I think. EDIT: I see why you were confused by the wording of "during the strike", that's my bad. The intention was no afterburners during the entire flight.

    @epicman81 turn up the brightness, man! That's a cool drone design though.

    Yeah sure, that's what I did too.

    I did another entry with my new F-22 Raptor, but I got distracted and missed the first shot, so only 19.7 pts.
