KESTREL AEROSPACE KC-100 DESIGN NOTES

 

The KC-100, designated 'Rhino' for its bulk, is a heavy-weight, medium-range airlifter with a maximum takeoff weight of 90 tonnes. It's capable of relatively short takeoffs with lighter payloads, and can also be landed in a short distance if its thrust reversers and flaps are employed. The Rhino was created primarily with rough-field landings in mind, and can thus deliver payloads to remote locations that would otherwise be inaccessible.

Empty Weight: 32.92 tonnes   

 Full Weight(1162LF): 38.74 tonnes excl. payload

Stall Speed: 40m/s     

Maximum Static Thrust: 480KN (4x Wheesley powerplants)

Maximum Return Range, with maximum payload: 650km

Maximum Range of No Return, with maximum payload: 1300km

 

OPERATION MANUAL: 

 

AG  1 - Switch engines on/off     AG 2 - Toggle Thrust Reversers     AG 3 - Toggle flaps     AG 5 - Lower/Raise Cargo Ramp

Welcome to our forum. 

Imgur updates keep breaking album links on our forum, so I've copied a link into your post to make the pics visible. 

 Nice plane. :D

Thanks for the approval, Vanamonde!

I've been messing around with the images/album from Imgur and can't seem to get anything to work. Should I just use images alone in future?

Yep, Imgur albums have never really worked right.  Best to just insert individual images.  If you've got a ton of them and want to save people from scrolling through, you can always put them in a spoiler section if you like.
