Description

OH GOD
WHY

well I guess I don’t need to explain myself, its a replica of a soviet Pe-8 heavy bomber with almost 700 parts. it uses stock single speed props because two speed props involves switching to every propeller.

I kinda didn’t go into as much detail for the engines as I wanted, but my SPH crashed with my first wing design so I had to remake the WHOLE THING x)

its maximum SAFE speed on the flat is like 45m/s, and its max speed before the props redline is around 55m/s. The props breaking is kinda random at that speed, so I’m not sure what the issue is but at least it flies.

Its roll rate is absolutely horrid but pitch authority is great. Don’t try to pull more than 5 g’s or the props will leave the aircraft but by the time you rolled far enough for a 5-g turn you would’ve gone in 2 full circles already so I wouldn’t be too worried.

… there’s no way I’m doing something like this for a long time haha

A stock aircraft called Pe-8. Built with 689 of the finest parts, its root part is Mk1FuselageStructural.

Built in the SPH in KSP version 1.3.0.
