ADF-11F Raven (1:1 Replica w/ FAR)

Recommended Posts

I've been tackling this plane for sometime, although it has proved itself to be troublesome, and the project took way longer than expected(still haven't really finished by this point).
Anyway, presenting the ADF-11F Raven:

The ADF-11F Raven is an advanced unmanned air superiority fighter boasting phenomenal maneuverability, laser weaponry, and ridiculous loitering time. Designed with "ultimate survivability" in mind, the Raven is actually an ADF-11 drone nose unit with a RAW-F air supremacy wing unit attached, together forming the ADF-11F. The combined Raven would always attempt to take damage with the RAW-F wing unit, and when being damaged beyond combat capable, the nose unit would detach and retreat, bring back crucial combat data for further tactical advancements.

The Raven is unmistakably MASSIVE, even surpassing the Tupolev Tu-28 in maximum takeoff weight. Detaching the ADF-11 from the Raven is like ejecting a Dassault Rafale on top of an F-22. 
For a size comparison, we've asked Jeb to roll the Aeris 3A in front of the SPH for a photo shoot:

Jeb even agreed to pose for a photo:

And don't trust the blue ball, it can and will deceive you...

The delta platform is rather stable even without vertical tails. Bit of a surprise for me there.

I mean,
WOW

Arsenal Bird Awesome Bird.
I suppose I need Ubio wielding for this to work, no?
I'm running KSP 1.5, would be a shame if I can't get 517 tons of awesomeness to work.
(Though I think ubio wielding works just fine in 1.5)

I would be more worry about FAR
If you can see in the video it's pretty glitchy already in stock aero. it sometimes randomly accelerates to the speed of light and explodes.

Well, the big bird is just too good to pass. I'll see if I can't get a nice photo.
