Description

Kairbine’s Letandash project was devised to replace the old Trinikerm and exceed it in flight range, fuel efficiency and passenger capacity. Unsurprisingly, Kairbine also designed the Letandash to outperform the upgraded versions of Jebedastar’s Triassic and Koopy and Kerbolair’s Kerssic.
The Letandash powered by the CMF56 engines, first used in the Joolen jumbo jet, and with a capacity of 6,520 liters of fuel, was assigned its official registration A7-180P-100 when passing all flight tests. After the 100 version, the new 18CF6 engine was available to aeronautical companies, being the A7-180P-200 Letandash the first to use them. Although the new engines were less powerful than the CMF56 turbofans, they were more efficient, so the solution to solve the thrust problem was to decrease the plane’s fuel capacity by 2,000 liters less. A short time after the 18CF6 engines release, the super powerful J-90 high bypass turbofan, designed to power heavy aircraft, began production. However, Kairbine decided to use the new engines in the A7-180P-300. The J-90s were so powerful that only 20% of the power was needed to reach cruising speed, making the Letandash the most efficient airliner. Nevertheless, the new engines were very heavy, so the 300 version could not carry the 6,520 liters of fuel that the 100 version had, so it had to be lowered to 5,520 liters.

Action groups listed. Use elevons assist pressing 8 for smooth landings. Caution with tail strikes on takeoffs, in real life the rear fuselage would not be so straight after the middle section.

Built in the SPH in KSP version 1.8.1.
