A-10 Fairchild Republic Thunderbolt II (WIP)

Recommended Posts

Hey All First post here, so i thought i would start with an A-10 cause i just love that plane.

The Design is still in the making i have to work out a few bugs, like when taking off it loves the drift to the left then roll and well explode.....

More information, pictures and videos to come..

Ok issue i seem to be having is related to the B9 Part Pack and well more the Procedural parts they seem to be putting the center of lift off to the left by a huge amount.

If you're making such an aerodynamically screwy aircraft as the A-10, and you're having problems with the stock aero system, then I'd recommend checking out FAR. (procedural parts were made for FAR anyway)

Yea the default Aero Physics is a bit screwy, Cause after i had finished the wings i placed the rudders down and the arrow went nuts, it was pointing down towards the left....

Just If you want't to know air to air missiles go on the outside of the wings and targeting pods near the body of the aircraft

I don't believe that the BD Armoury pack makes a correct impression of the GAU-8:

Like, the A-10 is literally a GAU-8 wrapped in a tube. In fact, the GAU-8 decelerates the A-10 when firing. If a second GAU-8 was added, and the A-10 cranked its throttle up while firing, the GAU-8s would push the plane backwards. (No it won't) I believe that the A-10 Thunderbolt should be renamed as the GAU-8 Thunderbolt.

The GAU-8 makes 4000 lb-f.

i've seen figures for 10000 lb-f - or 45kN for the gau-8A recoil, vs the TF34's 40kN (~9000lb-f) of thrust for each of the A-10's engines :) (don't mix kg-f and lb-f ;))

in practice, the recoil only slows the plane for a few km/h when firing, because you also have to take inertia into account :)

i prefer the gsh-6-30 though :wink: with a rate of fire up to 50% faster than the GAU-8, while it's lighter :wink: 

relevant xkcd ^^
