Cierva FB-75 "Wolf Spider"
The Cierva FB-75 "Wolf Spider" is the newest addition to the Costigarian Air Force. The project was a continuation of the successful FB-70x project, as the airframe proved to be exceptionally strong yet agile. The large, primitive turbojet engines were replaced with an internal hydrogen-fueled engine. This allows for a smaller fuel tank and thus the ability to house the engine inside the main airframe. The plane also features a V shaped tail, for less drag and a higher top speed. The reported top speed is around mach 2.7. The creation itself is inspired by all of Milos Jovanovic's airplanes, as they are all amazing creations. Lots of Credit to Tyro Cook!
About this creation








A view of the Wolf Spider's hydrogen fuel cells.




A view of the multitude of ordinance that the Wolf Spider can carry.


The 106mm cannon. Each cannon fires the same superheated tungsten rounds most Costigarian vehicles use. The ammo capacity is 100 rounds per cannon.


A duel missile pod. Each tube can hold chemical, high explosive, anti air, anti ground, anti shipping, armor piercing, or standard all-purpose missiles.


The Type 745 Cluster Bomb. The bomb itself houses four small packets, each containing thousands and thousands of tungsten balls, each superheated before the bomb is dropped. The process goes like this: 1. Bomb is primed (super-heating the balls) 2. Bomb is dropped 3. When the bomb hits either a set proximity or altitude, the bomb separates the four packets 4. After each packet is spread out, they burst open releasing the torrent of extremely hot tungsten balls. This whole process is effective at getting around CIWS systems.


A drop tank containing more hydrogen fuel rods for longer flights, or as an impromptu bomb, as the hydrogen is volatile unless in proper containment.


The Type 806 ECM pod.

You know, this bears a striking resemblance to the ME-262 file I gave you last year.....Now may I assume a certain someone simply forgot to give its original creator some credit for the long hours it took him to design and build? :p

Oops. I'll fix it when I get home. And yes, it is using the file. Deeply sorry.

Ah, so that's why it looked like a WW2 aircraft. XD

Oh, while technically there is nothing wrong with old shapes, there is a reason they aren't used anymore, and that's because other shapes are more areodynamic, stealthy, ect... I can see how the superheated tungsten could be effective, but you should keep in mind that at least I (and almost certianly other members) have vehicles protected by composite armor reinforced with carbon nanotubes, which have a very high meting point. (it's still not clear at this point exactly how high we are talking about but some estimates range up to 3,500c), In other words, it wouldn't be as dangerous as it would be on modern vehicles, although the threat would nontheless be quite real regardless.

Quoting Matthew McCall First off, nice work on the build, it looks well built. However, it also looks... outdated, with the shape of the plane looking like old jet fighters from the late 40's and 50's, and its shape really isn't a good one for high speeds. Anyway, a 60mm cannon is insanely huge for a fighter (the A-10's gun is only 30mm and considered to be huge), and there is literally no need for such overkill when a smaller gun with more ammo is just as effective. Finally, while the cluster bomb would be useful against infantry, since the balls ( BTW, superheating the tungsten balls doesn't make them more deadly in this case) would only be falling at terminal velocity they would unable to penetrate armored targets.
Ah, yes. Sorry about the delayed response, MOCpages doesn't seem to want me to comment on this. Anyways, here's the theory behind the heated tungsten ammo: 1. Since the ammo is heated to over 6,000 Degrees, the ammo will "melt" through armor. 2. While there are metals with higher melting points, Tungsten is also heavy, having a high mass. This allows the rounds to have higher momentum when fired. 3. In the case of the cluster bomb, it is meant to be used for both anti-ground and anti-air (against slower targets). Since tungsten has such a high melting points and is heavy, building a comparably high melting point armor would be inefficient, since tungsten weighs a ton (no pun intended). Of course, there are chemical compounds such as Tantalum hafnium carbide that have a higher melting point than Tungsten, but they cost incredibly large sums of money, and are considerably softer than tungsten.

Alright. I know there are a few shortcomings with the theory of the aircraft and the cluster bomb. I'll see if I can work something out with them. Anyways, thanks for commenting. Always nice to have comments by better builders then you. Also though, is there anything wrong with having a retro looking aircraft?

Alright. I'll try to fix up some of the technical details and such. I know the theory behind the whole thing is a little off, so I'll try to fix that too. I could also make a newer version, this time with swept back or delta wings to make it seem that it could actually get up to mach 2.7. Also, about the cluster bomb, when I say super heated, I mean it's heated up to over 6,000 degrees fahrenheit. Anyways, thanks for the tips, I'll try to fix it up. Always nice to have a creation of yours commented on by a better builder then you are; it really helps you become a better builder yourself (or in this case, myself).
