[Stock] XFA-33 FENRIR replica attempt

Greetings :D

Yesterday, I decided to try to replicate the XFA-33 FENRIR, a fictional multipurpose next-gen combat aircraft from the Ace Combat series.
I made multiple versions, but I think this one is the best one.

So, the Fenrir. A large multipurpose fighter, originally equipped with functionalities such as S/VTOL capacities, high tech weaponry (a high-power microwave canon that can burn the fuel inside the target's tanks, a super powerful long-rage shockwave missile...), the COFFIN system (COnnection For Flight INterface) allowing a neural interface connexion between the pilot and the plane, and even a ground-powered invisibility system. A cheaty beast.

Okay, in KSP, for economic reasons and others, we couldn't put all of this in a plane. No COFFIN, no hi-tech weaponry, a FENRIR without options (if you're not happy, add mods ! :P)

This full-stock aircraft weights 22 tons and is propulsed by 3 Panther engines equipped with afterburning system, and 2 of them also have thrust-vectoring capabilities (the middle one doesn't move because, normally, it's this one that swings 90° down (like a F-35B) to allow VTOL, while the other 2 provide thrust-vectoring on the yaw).
Stable, maneuvrable, and easy to fly, it can even land and take off from the water without any problem. The only bad thing is that its max speed is Mach 1, while the original one tops at Mach 2.3 or something like that.

Anyways. I did as I could, but I'm pretty happy with the result. (this pod-thingy under the cockpit was a pain in the poophole to get right)

Very nice craft ValCab, great job!

I forget exactly who it was, but someone made a nice and simple stock VTOL hinge for F-35 replicas.
 Maybe you could replicate that (AFAIK it was just a Spider hinge with some docking ports)

 

That was Giggleplex's design, check out that particular craft at Zepto Eagleworks here.

I'll try, but I think it will mess with the rear's design.

This craft took me a while to make but i think the result is  pretty good. I buffed up the thrust to 500 and 1000 for afterburner, i did that because before i was playing 1.0.4 and the thrust were 700 or something very powerful. After updating all the planes felt weak. I like tweaking the game for convenience, some people might say "you can stack the engines" but i don't have a killer cpu so i want to keep the part count as low as possible.Here is my Falken BTW

I just played Ace Combat X's mission 15 to confirm how fast really is the XFA 33. I was pushing its limits and the end result of the speed of Fenrir is above 3000 mph, in Mach speed its above Mach 4... But I do love Fenrir and your work for researching how Fenrir works and replicating it :D
