The K-40 Cyclone is the most widely produced Talian fighter to date. This comes as no surprise as it is very easy to build and fly. While the basic design is in essence, very simple, it is lightweight and therefore very fast and maneuverable. Its supercharged Rolls-Royce merlin engine generates about 1,720 hp, which will have it going about 475 mph. Its great speed and maneuverability make it a capable dogfighter, and with 6 wing mounted .50 cal browning machine guns, it can lay down some serious firepower as well. While primarily employed by the Talian air force and navy, its is available for export to other countries.
About this creation
This one was a lot of fun to build. While normally I try to model my aircraft after existing ones to ensure buildability, I designed and built this one from scratch. While it did receive a heavy mental influence from the MiG-3, P-51, and P-40, I take full credit for it's design. That being said, thank you for checking out my aircraft, and be sure to leave me feedback. Thats my incentive to improve!
Good work and the speed is a tad fast but engine's like those merlin's can easily be tailored for faster speed,Not gonna say anything bad or what I think you need to improve because I dont want you taking it the wrong way.But the design is great,I see alot of Yak-3,La-7 and P-40 in this plane
Quoting Commodore Boris the active one
I definitely see the P-51, not so much the P-40 though. I agree win the others about speed, I suggest 450-470. I would also suggest a four if five bladed propeller, give it more lift. I like all the color schemes, great work!
I suppose I should update that, even though the stats don't matter unless somebody orders some.
