AV-22 Osprey

By Carmen

The AV-22 is a tilt-rotor maritime attack aircarft based on the present-day V-22 Osprey airframe. Inspired by Dale Brown’s Hammerheads novel, the AV-22 is armed with a belly mounted M230 chain gun, laser-guided Hellfire missiles and cargo ramp launched Viper Strike munitions derived from the USMC’s Harvest Hawk project.

Reinforced to withstand combat maneuvering, the AV-22 is capable of vectoring in forward flight and was evaluated in dissimilar air combat training against a DWG Flying Squirrel.

This uncanny ability to dogfight is meant as a defensive measure; the AV-22 was designed primarily as a maritime patrol / attack platform operating against armed Cuban smugglers. It has a very long flight endurance, with main rotor RPM controlled by the T and G keys. Left on Combat AI, the player can effortlessly loiter at low speeds below 200m altitude – the AI automatically tilts the nacelles to a 70 degree angle and maintains aircraft stability.

When encountering enemy aircraft at close range, the AV-22 will utilize asymmetric nacelle tilt for a Firefly-style “Crazy Ivan” maneuver while climbing in a vertical spiral.

  • Make wheel's models 1 block wide July 27, 2017
    Make wheel's models 1 block wide. It's just something small, but when building tanks, if you want sideskirts, the rims of the wheels stick out past thin blocks, like lights or AC plates.
  • [2.0] Light wheeled vehicles vibrate while driving July 27, 2017
    I think a similar problem has been posted. This doens't happened to me until the last update. Light wheeled vehicles vibrate a lot when driving, with only 4 wheels or with a lot of wheels. I have tested it with land vehicles of Ashes of the Empire and Dangerous Waters, and with my own vehicles. […]
  • Spiral without AI? July 27, 2017
    Hello there, The "Spiral" plane of the SS immediately goes into AI dead. Is that a story thing again? (I should really play the story myself at some point).
  • [WIP] HMS Starsaber July 27, 2017
    So... here's a new ship I'm working on. Unfortunately, I'm having a very bad case of writer's block, so I will show the ship off while it's being built. Armaments: 4 3x500mm "Bloody Mess" cannons, firing 8m HESH at 5 RPM 8 AA guns. They are crap. 10 100mm rapid fire Disruptor cannons, firing at […]

  • Custom stabilization script needed July 27, 2017
    I find myself in need of a custom stabilization script that only touches boat propellers, nothing else, at all. If I knew how to do it myself, I would, and too many other projects atm to be learning it just for this one script. All the other scripts available here on the forums all wrest […]
  • Particle Cannon Mirror block. July 27, 2017
    Quite simply a Particle Cannon block but mirrored. All functionality is the same except for the port positions, and mirror mode substitutes the Particle Cannon Mirror in on the other side of the mirror plane when placing a Particle Cannon and vice versa.
