BARD is back with another beauty. The MAP-2 has decided to jump back in time to give us simple folks a taste of the future. Caution: Non-limited thrust may potentially result in G-sickness to the nth-power.
1) Toggle engines, 2) Toggle reaction torque, 5) Toggle cockpit lights, 10) Toggle ladder. Toggle RCS and press N (by default) to reverse.
So I was looking for the next cool thing to build and stumbled upon some super modern planes. I wanted to try to go for the KAI KF-X, but couldn’t find anything concrete to replicate. Then, I discovered the TFX C100 and thought I’d found the one. But, again, no luck on finding blueprints; just a bunch of comparison diagrams through Google Images sizing-up various modern jets. Finally, I found the picture I’ve shared in the album comparing the F-35 to the C100 and figured they looked too similar to bother replicating just one. Merging the two together gives us the DJ-X4ii MAP-2. Go ahead and give it your own nickname, I’ve resorted to calling it
the now-future plane. Did I mention it’s B.A.? Cuz it’s badS=true. Important things to note: many Gs such jet wow. If you wanna change the engines, (and I kinda recommend it, as I actually built the thing with the Wheesley first, but I figure folks like moar powah!) replace the Whiplash with the Wheesley, lower each tank to 60% fuel (840 total of 1,400), and tilt them downward on the z-axis, like only a degree or two, to bring the thrust vector more in-line with the center of mass (the bicoupler is tilted upward about that much, so I’ve tilted the engines to compensate). This should bring the TWR to about 1.21. Regardless of the engine, this jet lifts off on its own around 90m/s, and ~80m/s with pitching-up. There are sneaky-sneaky vernors for reversing; toggle RCS to activate and press N (by default).
A stock aircraft called DJ-X4ii MAP-2 (Stock). Built with 59 of the finest parts, its root part is Mark2Cockpit.
Built in the SPH in KSP version 1.0.4.
