Tu-225 Barracuda
The Tu-225 Barracuda bomber/attack/close air support aircraft.
About this creation
The Tu-225 Barracuda.

Due to inefficiency in combat, the turrets and wing guns have been removed. One minigun has been left in the left wing root, and the 30mm Gatling gun is the primary gun. The rear turret has been deleted completely, and the fuel tank has been elongated to fit the gap. The lighter weight greatly increases maneuverability and turn-rate, and the added fuel increases range immensely.

After these modifications, the Barracuda has been left with a payload of 11 hardpoints, (as seen on the Mk. II photos) The hardpoints are able to carry rocket pods, thermal-imaging, laser-guided or unguided bombs, cluster bombs, laser or thermal imaging guided Anti-Tank and Anti-shipping missiles, heat seeking Air-to-Air missiles, drop tanks, or gun pods. With limited modifications, the Tu-225 is able to carry ECM pods and guided torpedoes.
UAC Technology has recently modified Tu-225s to carry Radar guided missiles. Due to the fact that the Tu-225 has no radar, this is only effective when used in co-ordination with a craft carrying radar. Using this technology, Ukrainian AWACs are able to guide missiles fired from a Tu-225 to target. This technique has never been used in combat, but has been used with deadly efficiency on drones during testing.
The 30mm cannon has 1,700 rounds of depleted uranium armour piercing exploding rounds, and the 50cal minigun has 1,000 rounds of jacketed lead-point anti-personnel strafing rounds. These combined with the stunning ruggedness of this beast make the Tu-225 one of the most effective killing machine in the skies.


























P.S. The Barracuda Is also very good at close air support, or in other words, low level bombing and strafing. Tu-225 Barracuda Mk.2. I want to make it look like it's firing S-13 122mm Rockets. At Michael's AHMCAV... The Tu-225 Mk.2, featuring a new tailplane, (providing more lift) new more powerful engines giving it the ability to fly with one engine blown off, and new wingtips, (giving the Tu-225 a greater roll rate) and markings. More pics can be seen on Flickr, and maybe if I get some spare time I'll post 'em here. Enjoy!

Is it OK if the Philippines would acquire such an aircraft from our Ukrainian comrade?

It looks a little too much like an A-10...no offense though it is an awesome fighter/bomber jet.

I love it! This is a well built fictional aircraft. It looks quite authentic. Also I made a fictional plane using an engine design similar to yours. Great minds think alike. ;-)

Actually no, Its not the A-10...It looks like it, but so do some other Attack/Bomber aircraft out there. Good Job!

i like the overall shape, but an aircraft that size wouldn't be able to hold the weight of all the projectiles. still pretty good though

There's quite a story behind this one, pretty much it's a Russian cross between the B-25 Mitchell of WWII and the modern A-10 Thunderbolt II (Warthog/Tankbuster) that it so resembles. As somebody stated, the weapon load is probably too much, but some of these can go on the Fafnir (Su-51 Fafnir, fictional stealth fighter under construction). As I said in real life, it STILL needs to be smoothed up a bit, and the engine attachment is a bit weak, the regular complaints with your stuff. ;-) Overall, great design, good work! -- -- Michael

Good plane, I realy like that it looks like the A-10, Russia and NATO have a habit of having similar designs, look at the B-1B and TU-160. And even the Concorde and TU-144!
