Description

This is the final evolution of the Kru-33 Faker-D. The Block-16 features reworked avionics making it very agile and maneuverable. It comes with an integrated FLIR that allows it to perform in the Attack-role without sacrificing weapons stores or combat ability. The FLIR also doubles as a gun camera.

Balancing is critical when weapons are mounted. For optimal performance the centre of lift should be just within the centre of gravity and just ahead of it. This will allow the plane to pull the tightest turns even at full throttle with after-burners on and gimbals off. As the cockpit is slightly tilted, there is a more centre-lined probe core just behind the cockpit. Control the plane from it for best performance.

The 1 major flaw is that the design cannot surpass Mach; capping at about 325 m/s. This seems to be an issue of the design of the cockpit creating a lot of drag within the game’s aerodynamic model. If anyone can figure out how to let it hit Mach, that would be fantastic.

Built with 135 of the finest parts, its root part is structuralIBeam2.

Built in the SPH in KSP version 1.1.0.
