Description

A mod aircraft called F-30 Wyvern. Built with 65 of the finest parts, its root part is Mark2Cockpit.

Built in the SPH in KSP version 1.0.4.

The F-30 Wyvern is my entry into Agonarch’s KSP Kollaborative Warfare Subscriber contest. The contest is for dogfighter aircraft. Guns only, no missiles. And it is an elimination bracket style contest. For more details, rules, and submission guidelines, see the video linked below.

With the Wyvern my design priority is maintaining energy, lift, and turning capability. Or in other words - the E-M theory of fighter design as outlined by John 40 Second Boyd. Plenty of engine power to gain or maintain energy, low wing-loading to help maintain energy in a hard turn. The Wyvern has a TWR of over 2 and can accelerate very VERY fast. Even if it loses significant speed in a turn or stalls out, the engine power will let it recover and regain lost energy very quickly. I didn’t include turrets in the design because I felt that with the Wyvern’s ability to turn, it might be redundant. But we shall see how it fares in the contest!

In the future I will upload a version of the Wyvern with a more traditional weapoons layout with guns and missiles both.
