The pinnacle of Balaclavan aerospace engineering, the F12A Sentry is set to be a record-breaker amongst jets. As you can see, it was heavily borrowed from the Westland Whirlwind.
About this creation
Pushing it at a top speed of just over 580 mph boosted by two large turbofan engines, the F12A can take on even the fastest of contemporary jets.
Not only is the F12A armed to the teeth with 8x 0.50 cal MGs and twin 20mm cannon, but it can also pack a ground-pounding punch with up to 1,000lbs of bombs or 6x "Holy Moses!" rockets in under wing pods.
The /B variant lacks the 2x 20mm cannon in favor of up to 1,500 lbs of bombs or 9x rockets.
Yes, I'm alive, it's just been ages since I've posted anything. School has not been fun, but I'm pleased that I'll be getting my Bachelor's Degree in Mechanical Engineering this month! WHOOO!! 5 years of my life is in that degree...

My biggest mistake was not finishing my Engineering degree when I was young. I had to go to work though. Anyway, all the best, and here's to designing planes or whatever for real!
Thanks, man, I appreciate that! Hey, it's never too late! Good to meet another engineer in these parts! I will, hoping to work as an engineer for a chemical company first, then on to other things.
Dude! Congratulations. My biggest mistake was not finishing my Engineering degree when I was young. I had to go to work though. Anyway, all the best, and here's to designing planes or whatever for real!
It is funny that you are building for the Balaclavan Military... I've actually lived near a place called Balaclava in Crimea.
Congrats on your degree. I just graduated with my master's in economics. Good luck in your job search.
Your jet has a cool late WWII vibe and I like the shape and how you used the engines.
