F/A-27 Switchblade

About this creation
Firtst a 360 view





Profile view showing the angled cockpit. The pilot has a better view that way.

Cockpit, equipped with multi-mission avionics system includes a HUD, advanced radar, flight instruments, ultra high frequency (UHF) communications, and Tactical Air Navigation (TACAN). It also has an internally mounted, tactical electronic-warfare system, Identification, Friend or Foe (IFF) system electronic countermeasures suite and a central digital computer.

Air intakes for the Gurijev F200 turbojets.

For dogfights, it is equipped with a 20mm cannon with a high rate of fire.

Thrust-vectoring is giving it a better maneuverability. The turbojets also have afterburners. The F/A-27 can climb to 10,000 m in around 60 seconds. The thrust output of the dual engines is greater than the aircraft's weight, thus giving it the ability to accelerate in a vertical climb.

Missiles are stored in an internal bay. It fits 8 missiles, air-to-ground or air-to-air.

Low aspect ratio provides the least drag, enabling the aircraft to speed up to Mach 3. In this configuration the trailing edge becomes the leading edge, a section of the wing root becomes the new trailing edge.


Landing, this pic shows the retractable landing gear and air-brake.

Sorry to be commenting on this so much, but would you mind giving me the LDD file? I'm working on recreating the F/A-37, and I just want to see how you did a few things. If not it's okay.

I've seen the EDI, that was incredible, but like I asked earlier, can a use some techniques from this? Credit will undoubtedly be given.

Quoting Jack K I think I see some inspiration from the movie "Stealth", maybe? Very nice, mind if I use the method you have in the wings for a similar project I'm working on? I'll definitely give you credit for it.
Yep, Stealth, one of my favorite movies. There are improved versions (the Zeus and the Waverider) and another aircraft, the EDI UCAV. The UCAV turned out to be my best LDD aircraft. Check that out for sure.

Quoting Josh Cooper Pretty cool man! Nice job with the wings. Its not exactly a new thing since my Phoenix already has that though. I also like the slanting cockpit. The bottom is pretty blocky though, and i could appreciate the aircraft better if it had landing gear. And it is quite a bold statement to say that this aircraft puts you at the forefront of the arms race. Time will tell my friend.
Now it has landing gear.
