What If Screenshot Thread.......

Recommended Posts


"What If" you could model the over 20,000lbs thrust on the Mig-21 Bis that was available below 4KM/13123ft?

One thing you could do is a loop right after take off. You could also burn all of your internal fuel in less than 3 minutes.

Open beta tester will be uploaded soon.

Intriguing.  I really like what you did here, looks so JASDF.

That said, required screenie.  This time the F-15SE packing a lotta bombs:

Catch me if you can....

Nice XIII Sqn Skin!

Did you ever get around to releasing an TSR ADV? I remember seeing one (I think it was from you) on here a few years ago.

No, I never did. When I had my 18-month sabbatical I stored all my 'Strike Fighters' stuff on an external hard drive that has stubbornly refused to work when I went to use it so I've lost the lot. That 'ADV' was inspired by a 'what if' article in a mid-1970's RAF Yearbook that referred to a TSR.2 ADV and needed a specific TSR.2 LOD with IRM pylons on the main inner wing pylons. The Skyflash were simply faux semi-recessed. In reality, the radar dish size was way too small as was the wing area... but it certainly captured my 14-year old imagination!

A subtle one here... there are changes to the Vixen as well but none are visible bar the missiles. 

Knocked the jet into an FAW.3... pinched the engines from a  Lightning, the radar from a Phantom and a nerw pit from a Lightning F.6. Also turned the Firestreak into a Blue Dolphin by ini tweaks and a crude over paint of the seaker head. she'll now do Mach 1.2 and really is all weather capable.

Inspired by the F-15X, I loaded up an F-15SE with 20 external A2A missiles (4 AIM-9Xs, 16 AIM-120Ds).  The only weapons pylon suitable for the CFT stations that I could find was one produced by the F-14Z team that I had to tinker with slightly.  Even then, the undercarriage does slightly clip the CFT missiles.

Still, it's one heck of an arsenal bird!

This is awesome and I dare you to do this to a regular F-15E Strike Eagle and if possible the F-15C since the F-15 Advanced models will keep the tails at the same angle as the A-E models.

That said, I have some experience with pylon modifications and the JAS-39C Gripen.  I know how hard it is to get working...

It was actually easier than I expected, although only certain weapon racks work without clipping and the gear doors for the rear undercarriage always seems to get clipped.

And finally, a few shots of the F-15SE flight I was in (including my wingman limping home after a missile hit):

Perfection!  I feel this is quite accurate to the F-15CX concept.

With that, here's a what-if... of a JAS-39C Gripen in desert/forest blend digi-camo.  Oh and yes, I am working on adding a blue tint to this for the Dhmari... so while you wait:

Again, thanks for the hard work on the F-15CX!
