Got it. curently BAD-1 is -1, SM3 Kestel is -4, and RBF-6 is -1.

Why not just create a Straw poll and link everyone to it in the OP? That might help sort things out.

I built one for this week:

Congratulations, have a shiny badge!

Now, onto the next week's plane.

Week 2:

Class: Military Vehicle Transport

You are to design a Aircraft capable of transporting and air-dropping the new GUA-1 Anti-Air Artillery Rover to the KSC2. (The rover can fit in a MK3 Cargo bay) It should be able to take off before the third set of white stripes on the runway, and land in about the same distance. it must also have at least one weapon hardpoint.

Pics and download of the rover:

Weight: maximum 80 tons (not including rover)

Speed: No minimum

Payload: at least one GAU-1 Rover, and at least one weapon hardpoint

Range: at least able to reach KSC2

Crew: at least 2

i'll actually do the assignment in time this week, I promise!

Wow, strangely similar to my original C-1 before changing to a Mk3 cockpit. I deleted the prototype, but here's the thumbnail.

I didn't mean for it to turn out this way, but it really looks like a Dolphin to me, so I just named it that way

Nice planes! @NotAnAimbot it doesn't look like you're airdropping the right rover though.

I have a problem with the download of the rover

@MiffedStarfish Can you provide a KerbalX link?

Also, can I use KSP 1.3 ?

Damn I'm late! I'll join (again) :P 

Also could I edit the rover a touch? If you want extra info I will PM you :D

Yup, that's a plane made for Hatbat's series aidropping the ATH-105.

I'm currently working on my airdrop system for your vehicle.

Unfortunately I'm using Kerbalism so craft (the missiles) need a separate antenna to function

Could you clarify a bit on that problem? And any version is fine.

If you don't make it smaller or lighter, then ok. (PMing might be a good idea)

You won't actually need to fire the missiles at any point, so it probably doesn't matter.

Here's my entry, the C-2 Albatros

Spoiler

Aidropping the GUA-1 using a rocket system. The plane carries two of them.

Landing distance if the plane touches the start of the runway. Take-off distance is just before the third set of strips.

The download is a bit different since I added extra tanks. 1 toggles flaps, 3 toggles thrust reverser and 5 toggles the cargo bay. Dropping is done by staging.

That looks great! In the assignment, you will have to pick one up as well, so I would reccomend everyone uses docking ports.

Done, updated the craft. It now uses a clamping port to grab the first rover and drops the second by the back door.

I'm in. Going for a RATOL with FAR.

ED: Oops. Incompatible with my KSP 1.2.0. What the heck? There is no FAR for KSP 1.3!

Welp. The craft is finished, and I tested it with some of my rovers. Unfortunately, as I said, the rover isn't compatible with my version, but why is that? Were there even new parts added in 1.2.1 - 1.3?

Hmm. What you have to do is open the rover config file, and change the first line to your version. I built it in 1.2.2, and the game won't load anything built after the version your on.

When dropped, the rover falls at just over a 90 degree angle.

Edit: Anyways, I'm finalising my design now: 0HFcI2X.jpgThe engines need to spool up before the brakes are released, but it can take off just before the second/third set of stripes (not sure if you are including the different-looking ones)

Damn, I must have not balanced the parachute right. Anyway, plane looks great, does it have a name to enter into the poll?

It is called the SMU-1 'Mallard'
