About one year ago I created list of fully and partially supported mods:

Mods which I am using to create planes are usually not supported by RP-0 so I'm creating custom support mostly for cockpits and BD Armory parts.

Any chance we can get a CF-105? Amazing aircraft that got cut down due to Govt' spending and poor business decisions. Nobody else in the KSP community has really done anything with it. Would be awesome to see.

F-15C? I'm a fool for this aircraft.

I chose F-15 E because I don't have AJE engine config for earlier variant.

I'm not interested in this plane.

 

 

 

McDonnell Douglas F-15 E Strike Eagle

The McDonnell Douglas (now Boeing) F-15E Strike Eagle is an American all-weather multirole strike fighter[4] derived from the McDonnell Douglas F-15 Eagle. The F-15E was designed in the 1980s for long-range, high speed interdiction without relying on escort or electronic-warfare aircraft. The Strike Eagle has been deployed for military operations in Iraq, Afghanistan, and Libya, among others. During these operations the F-15E has carried out deep strikes against high-value targets, combat air patrols, and provided close air support for coalition troops. It has also been exported to several countries.

Sukhoi Su-47 Berkut

The Sukhoi Su-47 Berkut (Russian: Сухой Су-47 Беркут—Golden Eagle) (NATO reporting name Firkin), also designated S-32 and S-37 (not to be confused with the twin-engined delta canard design offered by Sukhoi in the early 1990s under the designation Su-37) during initial development, was an experimental supersonic jet fighter developed by Sukhoi Aviation Corporation. A distinguishing feature of the aircraft was its forward-swept wing that gave the aircraft excellent agility and maneuverability. While serial production of the type never materialized, the sole aircraft produced served as a technology demonstrator prototype for a number of advanced technologies later used in the 4.5 generation fighter SU-35BM and current fifth-generation jet fighter prototype Sukhoi PAK FA T-50.

 

The Su-47 has extremely high agility at subsonic speeds, enabling the aircraft to alter its angle of attack and its flight path very quickly while retaining maneuverability in supersonic flight. The Su-47 has a maximum speed of Mach 1.6 at high altitudes and a 9g capability.

The swept-forward wing, compared to a swept-back wing of the same area, provides a number of advantages:

-higher lift-to-drag ratio

-better agility in dogfight situations

-higher range at subsonic speed

-improved stall resistance and anti-spin characteristics

-improved stability at high angles of attack

-a lower minimum flight speed

-a shorter take-off and landing distance

 

The forward-swept midwing gives the Su-47 its unconventional appearance. A substantial part of the lift generated by the forward-swept wing occurs at the inner portion of the wingspan. This inboard lift is not restricted by wingtip stall and the lift-induced wingtip vortex generation is thus reduced. The ailerons—the wing's control surfaces—remain effective at the highest angles of attack, and controllability of the aircraft is retained even in the event of airflow separating from the remainder of the wings' surface.

A downside of such a forward-swept wing design is that it geometrically produces wing twisting as it bends under load, resulting in greater stress on the wing than for a similar straight or aft-swept wing. This requires the wing be designed to twist as it bends—opposite to the geometric twisting. This is done by the use of composites wing skins laid-up to twist. The plane was initially limited to Mach 1.6.

Interestingly, the Su-47 has two tailbooms of unequal length outboard of the exhaust nozzles. The shorter boom, on the left-hand side, houses rear-facing radar, while the longer boom houses a brake parachute.

Even at Max takeoff weight TWR is still very high (actually a bit smaller than what MJ shows).

Lockheed SR-71 Blackbird

MzpFmLS.png

 

The Lockheed SR-71 "Blackbird" was a long-range, Mach 3+ strategic reconnaissance aircraft that was operated by the United States Air Force. It was developed as a black project from the Lockheed A-12 reconnaissance aircraft in the 1960s by Lockheed and its Skunk Works division. American aerospace engineer Clarence "Kelly" Johnson was responsible for many of the design's innovative concepts. During aerial reconnaissance missions, the SR-71 operated at high speeds and altitudes to allow it to outrace threats. If a surface-to-air missile launch was detected, the standard evasive action was simply to accelerate and outfly the missile. The SR-71 was designed with a reduced radar cross-section.

The SR-71 served with the U.S. Air Force from 1964 to 1998. A total of 32 aircraft were built; 12 were lost in accidents and none lost to enemy action. The SR-71 has been given several nicknames, including Blackbird and Habu. It has held the world record for the fastest air-breathing manned aircraft since 1976; this record was previously held by the related Lockheed YF-12.

I can see a good quality sr 71 replica here, well done sir.But even if this modded cockpit its modeled after blackbird one, i still think the overall shape of fhe nose section seen from top is incorrect. But i can understand the autor, trying to fit a sr71 shaped cockpit in a 2 mt piece is impossible.

Returning to your work, it's the best mod replica. May i ask you how do you paint your crafts please?

The problem is that craft files will not work without my entire gamedata folder where many parts from various mod makers (and from Squad) were resized, recoloured and adjusted to my needs.  Giving you link to them would be against the license. 

Here is my current mod list:  http://i.imgur.com/MP6cRoX.jpg

-Wings can be rocolured inside the SPH.

-new textures for Procedural Parts can be easily created using Paint.net or even Paint.

-For non-procedural parts I usually use KerbPaint or Paint.net and DDS Converter.

 

btw. I updated previous post with new pictures of Blackbird.

General Dynamics F-16 Block 52 C

Vo0H4Og.png

 

The General Dynamics F-16 Fighting Falcon is a single-engine supersonic multirole fighter aircraft originally developed by General Dynamics (now Lockheed Martin) for the United States Air Force (USAF). Designed as an air superiority day fighter, it evolved into a successful all-weather multirole aircraft. Over 4,500 aircraft have been built since production was approved in 1976.[3] Although no longer being purchased by the U.S. Air Force, improved versions are still being built for export customers.[4] In 1993, General Dynamics sold its aircraft manufacturing business to the Lockheed Corporation,[5] which in turn became part of Lockheed Martin after a 1995 merger with Martin Marietta.[6]

The Fighting Falcon has key features including a frameless bubble canopy for better visibility, side-mounted control stick to ease control while maneuvering, a seat reclined 30 degrees to reduce the effect of g-forces on the pilot, and the first use of a relaxed static stability/fly-by-wire flight control system which helps to make it a nimble aircraft. The F-16 has an internal M61 Vulcan cannon and 11 locations for mounting weapons and other mission equipment. The F-16's official name is "Fighting Falcon", but "Viper" is commonly used by its pilots and crews, due to a perceived resemblance to a viper snake as well as the Battlestar Galactica Colonial Viper starfighter.[7][8]

In addition to active duty for U.S. Air Force, Air Force Reserve Command, and Air National Guard units, the aircraft is also used by the USAF aerial demonstration team, the U.S. Air Force Thunderbirds, and as an adversary/aggressor aircraft by the United States Navy. The F-16 has also been procured to serve in the air forces of 25 other nations.[9] As of 2015, it is the second most common currently operational military aircraft in the world.[10]

North American XB-70 Valkyrie

RXmQJXM.png

 

The North American Aviation XB-70 Valkyrie was the prototype of the B-70 nuclear-armed, deep-penetration strategic bomber for the United States Air Force Strategic Air Command. In the late 1950s, North American Aviation designed the Valkyrie bomber as a large, six-engined aircraft capable of reaching Mach 3+ while flying at 70,000 feet (21,000 m).

At these speeds, it was expected that the B-70 would be almost immune to interceptor aircraft, the only effective weapon against bomber aircraft at the time. The bomber would spend only a few minutes over a particular radar station, flying out of its range before the controllers could position their fighters in a suitable location for an interception. Its high speed also made the aircraft difficult to see on the radar displays and its high-altitude flight could not be matched by any contemporary Soviet fighter.

The introduction of the first Soviet surface-to-air missiles in the late 1950s put the near-invulnerability of the B-70 in doubt. In response, the United States Air Force (USAF) began flying its missions at low level, where the missile radar's line of sight was limited by local terrain. In this low-level penetration role, the B-70 offered little additional performance over the B-52 it was meant to replace. It was far more expensive and had shorter range. Other alternate missions were proposed, but these were of limited scope. As the strategic role passed from bombers to intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBMs) during the late 1950s, manned bombers were increasingly seen as obsolete.

The USAF eventually gave up fighting for its production and the B-70 program was canceled in 1961. Development was then turned over to a research program to study the effects of long-duration high-speed flight. As such, two prototype aircraft, designated XB-70A, were built; these aircraft were used for supersonic test-flights during 1964–69. In 1966, one prototype crashed after colliding in mid-air with a smaller jet aircraft; the remaining Valkyrie bomber is in the National Museum of the United States Air Force near Dayton, Ohio.

There is a problem with the xb-70, "canards" should be placed almost on top of the fuselage, and not in the midle, other than that awesome.

Note i whrote "canards"because actually the valkyrie didn t used canards, but ailerons or flaps i dont remember the correct name sorry.

It looks ok for me, only windows on the cockpit are a bit too forward but I can't fix this.

This cockpit btw. is inspired by Concorde, not XB-70 but I don't have anything better.

I dont mean to move the canards forward, they are more on top of the fuselage on the real plane, look the craft from the front and you will understand

Tupolev Tu-160 "White Swan"

 

tCzCI4z.png

 

The Tupolev Tu-160 Beliy Lebed (or White Swan, Russian: Туполев Ту-160, NATO reporting name: Blackjack) is a supersonic, variable-sweep wing heavy strategic bomber designed by the Tupolev Design Bureau in the Soviet Union. It is the largest and heaviest Mach 2+ supersonic aircraft ever built and second only to the comparable XB-70 Valkyrie in overall length. It is the largest and heaviest combat aircraft, the fastest bomber now in use, and the largest and heaviest variable-sweep wing airplane ever flown.

Entering service in 1987, the Tu-160 was the last strategic bomber designed for the Soviet Union. As of 2016, the Russian Air Force, Long Range Aviation branch has 16 aircraft remaining, with fewer being airworthy and in service. The Tu-160 active fleet has been undergoing upgrades to electronics systems since the early 2000s. The Tu-160M modernisation programme has begun with the first updated aircraft delivered in December 2014.

For wings - just B9 proc. wings + Infernal Robotics.

Fuselage was made from Procedural Parts,  rescaled Firespitter cargo bays and two layers of Procedural wings. Cockpit is from Fantom Works and it's inspired by E-2 Hawkeye but I've build some sort of housing around to make it look more like Tu-160. Intakes and engines are from B9 with custom AJE config for the NK-32 turbofan. Specs are very similar to real one: Mach 1.95 top speed and 14000m service ceiling.

Finally yellow Proc. Parts were used as a tape measure:

Colour of the cockpit is slightly dimmed using Kerb Paint, wings can be recoloured inside the game. For the Proc. Parts I used already existing textures.
