When I created the Convair 201 model I made an educated guess and added the wing and centerline pylons to it, because I felt the payload capability would otherwise be ludicrously small.Jemiba said:A more general question: How exact are those FS renderings, especially with regards
to weapons and payloads ? I just ask, because my son is playing a WW II simulation
in the moment and the aircraft are rendered really beautifully, but the choice of
weapons you have for each type often makes me laugh.
The Convair Model 200 was proposed in June 1972 to respond to the US Navy request for designs for a fighter/attack aircraft for the Sea Control ships. The VTOL aircraft would have used a PW401 engine with an afterburning 3BSD plus twin Allison XJ99 lift engines located behind the cockpit for added vertical lift forward of the center of gravity to balance the aft nozzle thrust.
To deal with ground environment generated by the combination of the afterburning rear nozzle and the high temperatures and pressures of the lift engines, ships from which the Sea Control Fighter operated would be equipped with special vertical landing areas with metal grates to allow the hot air flow to pass through.
And the F-16 and maybe the Sea Harrier. A common lightweight fighter across most of the western air forces and navies. And if the Model 200 is a production airplane that means you have to have the F401 as a production jet so you have the F-14B. Which means more than Maverick doesn't have a TF30 flameout and gets in the flat spin that kills Goose but that it is has far better flight performance. F401 could also mean a major F-111 MLU in the 1980s?sferrin said:Makes you wonder how things might have been different if they'd built this in place of the F/A-18A/D & AV-8B.
There is plenty of info/pics on the Convair 200/201 projects on this forum (a highly documented and illustrated topic of its own), but you can't just start a new topic and ask randomly for information when you're interested in a certain type without checking what's already there beforehand... The first thing to do is use the Search engine and IF the subject hasn't already been tackled THEN you can start a topic (and from experience I can assure you that there aren't too many projects that haven't...).WhiteDemon said:Hi ,i have images of the airplane and i need more images & info of this project...
Any relation? (The engine not the plane.)LowObservable said:Actually, the three-bearing nozzle was invented in 1967 for the AVS project, bering first shown on an RB.153-61 mockup.
