NAF A-7 Thunderbird
Meet the newest member of the Nigerian Air Force!
About this creation
Good-whatever viewer, meet the newest Ground Attack Plane from the Nigerian AF: The A-7 Thunderbird, named after the bird from Native American Folklore.

Capable of dropping anything you put on it, the A-7 is the best and only plane for the job, armed up to the teeth with two Fire-linked Miniguns, and a 30mm cannon, this bird can rain a hailstorm of lead on Infantry and light-armored vehicles. To take out tanks and bunkers are the two missles near the end of the craft, and on the wingtips are two Air-to Air missles, just incase it has to defend itself from Afar. Finally, on the fuselage are two missle-ish things.

Changed to 30mm also I'm working on making a longer fighter variant of it.

Is your collection organized? Because that helps a ton.

Quoting Jake H. I think you could do much better. I'm sorry if I'm being harsh, but your APC was WAY better than this so I know you have it in you. Here's a few things you could improve. A. Make it bigger or unmanned, if this was for a sci-fi group it's size would be fine, but people seem to be pretty strict around here so things have to be realistic. B. Try using SNOT wings. This is a mildly advanced technique and one that I didn't start using until a few months after joining MOCpages, but trust me you can make some amazing things using SNOT. If you are having trouble with SNOT then just use plates for now, but try to be original. C. Cockpit this is something I had trouble with too, I found it's best if you start of with the cockpit then build the rest of the fighter.
I kinda don't have enough plates/slopes to make it look like a cow didn't barf on it.

Quoting Ultramarine . This isn't too bad. But might I suggest turning it into a copter? This has a good start for the front, but it has engines that are a bit on the sci-fi side for the 21st Cen and might garner some raised eyebrows. Plus, with conventional engines, I don't think this could mount a 70mm (Only the A-26 and B-25 in WWII were able to do that). Putting a rotor on top and a tail on the back would fix those problems. Hope this helps!
Yay, weird shaped jet engines for the win! I'll try the helicopter suggestion...

I hope my previous comment helps, to be honest, this is a great first try, but for the 21st century group, I don't think it's quite up to specs.
