US Modern Military Pack 3 Airforce
My third modern military pack, this time: Airpower. Also, I have an idea, what if I did a modern military CYOA? If you think yes or no please leave it in a comment.
About this creation
B-49 Specter Specs:
Top Speed: Mach 4.2
Weight: 88 Tons
Armor: Aluminum and Titanium alloys
Primary Armament: 12x 1000 lbs JDAMs
Secondary Armament: 4x Gau-19 .50cal Miniguns AR-8 100mm railgun
Power Plant: 6x Pratt & Witney F-3780 Ramjet engines
Combat Range: 186,000 miles (infinite with midair refueling)
Crew: 1


A supersonic complement to the B-2 Spirit bomber, the B-49 is the premier bomber of the US Airforce.


Its bomb load is smaller than that of the B-2, B-1, or B-52, but the railgun equipped on the B-49 is primarily used as a ground attack weapon.


The B-49s four miniguns are seldom used since they rarely encounter interceptors. However, in an incident of Turkmenistan in the spring of 2017, a B-49 engaged and shot down 3 Mig-29s.


Four tail fins give great stability and control even at top speeds.


Due to its ramjet engines, the B-49 is launched from a purpose built railgun to accelerate it to a point where its engine can engage.


Many enemy fighter pilots at first mistook B-49s for fighters due to their maneuverability, speed, and firepower.


The last thing many enemies of the US ever see.


Bomb bay doors open to show the bomb rack and railgun.

AV-8 Harrier Specs:
Top Speed: Mach 1.1
Weight: 6 Tons
Armor: Aluminum and Titanium alloys
Primary Armament: 4x hardpoints, shown here with 2x Aim-9x sidewinder missiles, 2x GM-90 Ground attack missiles, 2x VM-270 AP missile pods, and 2x R-12 Anti-material missiles
Secondary Armament: Gau-12 25mm Minigun
Power Plant: Rolls-Royce F402-RR-408 (Mk 107) vectored-thrust turbofan
Combat Range: 2,000 miles (infinite with midair refueling)
Crew: 1


Still seeing limited use by the US Marines after over 30 years of service, the Harrier is slowly being replace by more advanced aircraft.


Mostly used for close air support, Harriers still pack a deadly punch.


The variety of weapons able to be carried by Harriers has kept the relevant, even in the age of stealth, precision guided munitions, and railguns.


4th wall: I am building this for real right now, I just need to find the right colored parts.


4th wall: This is version 7 of the Harrier, version 1 was built in 2007 (it was pretty bad).


Missiles galore.

F-47 Aurora:
Top Speed: Classified (believed to be around mach 3)
Weight: Classified
Armor: Classified
Primary Armament: AR- 40 250mm railgun
Secondary Armament: Unknown
Power Plant: 2x Pratt & Witney F-3780 Ramjet engines
Combat Range: Classified (believed to be over 100,000 miles)
Crew: 1


Development started in 1958 as a hypersonic spy plane, but soon the military realized the potential of a hypersonic fighter.


Still above top secret, the Pentagon released a statement in early 2015 that this aircraft existed. Only the X-47 has been seen and photographed by the public, leaving the specs of the production variant a mystery. It is estimated that prior to the public statement, less than 900 people ever knew of the F-47's existence.


Like the B-49 (which many believe is based on the F-47) it is launched by a specialized raigun.


4th wall: this is my favorite in the pack, version 3 of the aircraft, again the other versions are pretty bad.


4th wall: only aircraft in this pack with retractable landing gear, I was forced to sacrifice lots of weapons for this.


Many expect to see the F/A-47 making an appearance in Turkmenistan by summer 2018.


Railgun deployed, believed to be both for ground and air attack.



Landing gear retracted, ta-da.

AC-130 Specs:
Top Speed: 350 Mph
Weight: 65 Tons
Armor: Aluminum and Titanium alloys
Primary Armament: 120mm rifled cannon
Secondary Armament: 2x 40mm bofors auto-cannons and Gau-1 40mm minigun
Power Plant: 4 Allison T56-A-15 turboprops
Combat Range: 4,500 miles (infinite with midair refueling)
Crew: 13


Like the Harrier, the AC-130 is still alive kicking after its many years of service.


The Navy Seals, Airforce PJs, and Marine Recon operate most, though some are still used by the Army.


New sensory packages and countermeasures have kept the AC-130 alive for over 30 years, an impressive feat for a prop-driven aircraft in 2017.


4th wall: I did not make an AC-130w since I like the other AC-130 variants better.


AC-130s have seen some action in Turkmenistan, but many commanders are reluctant to use them after a disastrous night raid in the spring of 2017 in which three were lost to AA fire.


The landing gear cannot fully retract, I'm working on a solution for that, any advice is appreciated.


The deadly arsenal of the AC-130


C-130, only change, weapons are gone and the crew is reduced. Still in use by the US military in 2017 since it is so versatile.

AH-15 Wasp Specs:
Top Speed: 210 Mph
Weight: 4.7 Tons
Armor: Aluminum, Titanium alloys, and kevlar
Primary Armament: 30mm chain-gun
Secondary Armament: 4x 20mm chain-gun, 2x TRM-40 "Krakatoa" missile pods, 8x tubes for munitions (shown here with 4x Hellfire Mark 2s and 4x M2 .50 cal HMGs), and 2x hard points (shown here with 2x Aim-9z Super sidewinders).
Power Plant: Dtm-74 jet turbine engine, powering 2x independent fan blades
Combat Range: 1,200 miles (infinite with midair refueling)
Crew: 1


Covered with weapons and able to pick out targets 4 miles away, AH-15s can devastate any target moving under mach 2.


Originally intended to be a lightly armed scout helicopter, the AH-15 soon took on a much larger weapons package and began to become a dedicated attack platform.


The unique rotor-capsule design better protects the rotors and gives added lift by the condensation (not water making) of the air around them.


Able to turn on a dime, any would-be attack for behind can be foiled by the AH-15 in no time.


Smaller than virtually all other helicopters, AH-15s are being tested in a C-130 or C-17 launch and retrieval maneuver.


kevlar lines the belly to prevent bullets or shrapnel from entering the cockpit.

AH-1zx Ultra Cobra Specs:
Top Speed: 290 Mph
Weight: 6.1 Tons
Armor: Aluminum, Titanium alloys, and kevlar
Primary Armament: 30mm gatling gun
Secondary Armament: 8x hardpoints (shown here with 2x quad hellfire pods, 2x hydra AP rocket pods, and 4x TMR-8 AT rockets)
Power Plant: 2x A-390 jet turbine engines powering 1x main blade and 1x stabilizing blade.
Combat Range: 4,500 miles (infinite with midair refueling)
Crew: 13


The AH-1zx Ultra Cobra is the Marine Corps latest and greatest incarnation of the classic attack chopper.


Seeing plenty of action in Turkmenistan, AH-1zxs have proven themselves to be effective against any and all ground targets and many air targets.


Though aging and slowly becoming obsolete, the Cobra will likely be fighting until at least 2025, when the AH-20 (a planned larger version of the AH-15) will likely become the premiere attack helicopter of both the Army and Marines.


Capable of delivering all manner of fire power to the battlefield, AH-1zxs are a favorite of small squads on patrol in hot areas.


4th wall: shaping the cobra is not easy, I've been trying to build one for close to 2 years. Still not 100% on this design, but I'm satisfied enough to post it. Also, I know it has no skids, LDD crashed every time I tried to put them on for some reason.


AH-1zxs have to-date a perfect kill:loss ratio, no AH-1zx has every been lost to enemy or friendly fire.

UH-6 Little bird Specs:
Top Speed: 180 Mph
Weight: 1 Ton
Armor: Aluminum and Titanium alloys
Primary Armament: Attack variant has 2x M164d miniguns
Secondary Armament: Attack variant has 2x hardpoints
Power Plant: 1 One T63-A-5A powering 1x main blade and 1x stabilizing blade.
Combat Range: 500 miles
Crew: 2 and 6 passengers


Another aging warbird, the UH-6 is only used by US Navy SEALs, but the AH-6 model is used by US Navy SEALs and US Marine Recon.


I've always wanted to build one since there are so many great ones out there.


Fun, quick build, this UH-6 may be built sometime by me in real bricks since it is so small and requires only a few parts.


UH-6s used by SEAL teams are often coated in RAM and used for small night raids.


Sorry, not much to say about this one, I may build the AH-6 version for a future pack.

MQ-1 Predator Specs:
Top Speed: 135 Mph
Weight: 1 Ton
Armor: Aluminum
Primary Armament: 4x hardpoints (shown here unarmed)
Secondary Armament: none
Power Plant: 1 Rotax 914F
Combat Range: 1000 miles
Crew: 1 remote pilot


Drones! The two colors are for the UAV and Counter-UAV from COD.


Forced into limited use due to public disapproval of drones, many commanders want to see them in more roles and with more firepower.


Cheap, silent, and somewhat disposable, Mq-1s are perfect for high risk recon missions.


The single prop makes the MQ-1 slow, but provides a quieter platform and allows for more lingering at a target.


These may also be put to bricks since they are small like the little bird.


Personally, I like the usage of drones since they keep our people out of harms way and at the end of the day, they are no different from a conventional plane except for the fact the pilot is else where, too many people think they control themselves and that they can make decisions, this is not true, they are basically, really big, armed model planes.

LDD files is for F/A-47

Great work, especially on the Harrier, but to me it seems too flat. Maybe work on it a bit, it'll look great. Keep up the good work :)

Hearing that in and of itself is a reward. This is one of the major reasons I build. Thank you for validating a 15 year obsession nobody else in my life gets. XD

Quoting Zach Eli "Sierra" Sykes I see some of my techniques on the B-49 XD. Any chance you downloaded my A-120?(engines and bomb bay look the same)
Interestingly, I came up with that engine technique on my own, and then saw that you had it as well. As for the bomb bay I did download several of your mocs, and I liked the rotating bomb rack you had and the overall shaping of many of your aircraft. I did not steal any of your designs or techniques, I was more inspired by your solutions.

Quoting Daniel Bozarth three things. First the x-47 is a drone. Secondly, could use a bit of work on the cockpits. Finally, great overall designs. Also, the F-47 looks just like the G-9 Eclipse from Just Cause 2.
I should have realized the x-47 is also a drone, and I did not intend for the f-47 to look like anything else. I know many of them need work, but I plan to continually upgrade them until I feel they are the best they can be.
