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

a early A10 tankbuster i believe

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.

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

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.

Contradicting yourself a bit there 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

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 I'm not gonna argue with ya
