Could this be our next COIN fighter?

Recommended Posts

 

 

I'm not suggesting outsourcing, but these little brutes have a usefull load of 8790lbs / 3987kgs. Check them out at: http://airtractor.com/Default.aspx?p=8723 They come one seat or two and floats even. I could see chasing the gomers thru the bush driving one of these in green lizard or desert warpaint gunned, up and some of our favorite ordinance on hardpoints. Well Doggies! :ph34r: CL

I remember reading a novel whereby some sleeper KGB operatives in the US used these AG-Cat aircraft to spray nerve gas at strategic locations in the US (NSA hq, Pentagon etc). Was a good story but I can't recall what it was called right now.

Oh Great! I hope this doesn't put me on some DOJ / DHS or what list. I just want to shoot the guns and drop the bombs from the computer sim airplane :ph34r: CL

Has anyone heard of this SM-27 Machete? it looks pretty cool as a concept COIN and tactical fighter, but I wonder what it would be like in real life?

There are models to download for Xplane on the site too. I wonder if we could get them into SF?

 

Here's one in USAF colours

And, of course, the obligatory IAF repaint :wink:

Wow! A ferrari with a gun. I was pondering how to have or put an internal GAU gun on a single engine prop. Nice cruise speed too.

There was something similar in Iron Eagle III. What was that black bad guy plane? And that was over 15 years ago!

 

Wow - not sure if the trailer for "Hot Shots" was that funny :biggrin:

That was Scaled Composites ARES. ARES stands for Agile Responsive Effective Support, so basicly its a close support/coin aircraft.

 

Here's some links to sites about the aircraft.

Just returned home to my desk top. I have Capuns' EMB 314 Super Tucano loaded on my WOV.

5 hardpoints, 2 x 50 cals in wings. 2 skins by Gramps. The usual gripe. No pit. It uses an A-4 cockpit. I keep getting splashed by triple a. I guess because I fly it like a skyraider. :ph34r: CL

I'm thinking we should start over. From scratch. Back to square 1. I'm spoiled by the works of Zure, Usafmtl, Razbam, and the Mirage factory. Capun has produced some great stuff. He builds planes that nobody else will touch. I don't want to criticize his work and I won't. A new ALX with a cockpit is where I think this should go. :ph34r: CL
