Don't get too excited...for those who don't know, these are not new aircraft, but aircraft that have had 'fuel tanks' in the shape of canards added to them.

 

They do not fly any different than their normal counterparts.

 

The F-15D you see using TVC is using independent controls...it is NOT pitch linked.

 

These were things I whipped up because I was tired of studying for my checkride (now complete).

 

Is there any interest in these things?

 

Again, the 'canards' will not move, and do not change the flying characteristics of the aircraft at all. The thrust vectoring is only done using a seperate control and is NOT pitch linked...which may not be a big deal if you have a HOTAS.

"Any interest?"

 

Do bears screw in the woods?

 

:clapping:

 

I'm always looking for unique stuff like this! (I guess that's pretty evident by my recent projects eh?)

 

... Reminds me of Flight of the Cheetah...

Day of the Cheetah

Patrick McClanahan is back at Dreamland, this time as a Lieutenant Colonel in charge of the Dreamstar and Cheetah projects. The test pilot of the Dreamstar turns out to be a deep-cover KGB plant, and the plane is stolen. The only aircraft that even has a chance against it is Cheetah, flown by J.C. Powell and McClanahan. The stolen Dreamstar shoots down the second Old Dog project, and this time McClanahan's wife is on board...The chase is on... An action-packed aerial thriller and must-read for all Brown fans..

- "They could take out a F-15/ACTIVE or M/STD with ease"...

 

wow...now that is speculation at its finest...and how do you base that theory?

 

 

Especially since the ACTIVE had 3D TVC and the S/MTD had 2D TVC.
