Here is another quick preview this time of the Ki-98 ground attack plane, never reaching production dew to the end of the war this plane showed great potential & should be able to chew threw enemy armour with it’s 37mm & twin 20mm cannons in the nose.

BTW these rotating 3d images are easy to make so if there is any specific units you would like to get a better view of just say & I’ll post one of it :p

Me likes. Does that thing at the back connecting the two.. things have an historical purpose or is it just there for 'niceness' or something? Just curious heh.

The bar connecting the two booms controls the aircrafts pitch, i.e. makes it go up & down.

Ah okay thanks, don't see how that technically would work, but eh, it's a mod, not a physics lesson :p. Still, nice work :lol:.

Don’t know much about aerodynamics do ya, I’m fighting the urge to do a long post on aerodynamics & the 3D movement of aircraft now :p

I know a bit of it, only what I've been explained at secondary school, which in fact included the wings itself, no rear parts like that one.

But without the titanium protection. Now the P-47 was a real terror against ground targets: Massive firepower and a s*** load of armor.

This program, though reasonably normal at times, seems to have a strong affinity to classes belonging to the Cat 2.0 program. Andre 2.7 will break down on occasion, resulting in garbage and nonsense messages whenever it occurs. Usually a hard reboot or pulling the plug solves the problem when that happens.

Ground attack and I think of Stukas and Sturmoviks... And tankbusters, I think of Typhoons (not euro)... Ki-98 and I think of Nice and That'll be cool to use.

well it does seem similar to an A10 when looking at it from the front.

it's pretty nice :) is this there definite ground attack plane or is it just for coolness/different game mode?

This is their post-war ground attack plane, the Ki-51 being used in pre/early war, the Ki-45 mid & Ki-102 in late.

Ground attack, I think of A10. Sorry, but it's first thing into my head. That, or an Apache gunship :) Besides, from the front, that thing does look rather A10-ish with the stubby wings and the meaty machinegun on the front.


Still, a very nice looking model. Surprised a prop behind the main fuselage like that would work, tbh.

The back thing acts like a single giant elevator. On a normal plane, there'd be two tail-end 'wings' (this thing doesn't have them so has one big one connecting the two tail booms) so that thing pushes upwards to generate more lift and make it go up (as air pushes against the elevated surface and forces the back end down), or pushes downwards to make the craft descend (by pushing the back end upwards).

The tail rudders will do the same thing to make it go left and right in a yawing motion, and the ailerons situated on the wingtips generally work in opposition (one goes up, the other down) to allow a bank turn.

I know stuff :p

I still say that the HS 129 B-3 with the 75mm PAK 40 gun from the Panzer IVS still is a better tank killer than this jap machine.

Contradicting yourself a bit there Posted Image The fastest prop driven plane of WW2 used a pusher configuration, going as fast if not faster then most jets of the time. The biggest plane used by the USAF used rear facing props too :)

Well, I said I know stuff. Didn't specify WW2 stuff, as that would be a complete bare-faced lie. I would have just anticipated that the fuselage would've provided a 'barrier' for the air to reach the blades...and so it wouldn't have been able to provide as much thrust as a result.

I suppose rear-facing props would be a sensible idea, but I was more thinking in terms of the prop's position. Fit them along the wings, and this wouldn't be an issue, but the aerodynamic profile of the fuselage would be a bit inhibitive, I'd have thought.

But fair enough :p I'm not gonna argue with ya :)

The fastest prop driven airplane of the USAAF was not of a pusher/tandem configuration but rather it was the a specially modified P-47 thunderbolt with an emergency warrating pratt and whitney around 3,280 hp war service rating allowing it to get more than 504mph. In fact the fastes USAAF production aircraft fighter of the war was the P-51H series which achieved over 500 production models built. In fact mig the biggest airplane with rear facing props constructed in prototype form was the b-36 series (built in mock-up and few prototypes) and not the douglas XB-19 which was shamelessly obsolete by the war and it was rather relegated to a transport role for which its massive engines served it well.
