Xenonauts Corsair by pvtskwerl Xenonauts Corsair by pvtskwerl
Commissioned painting for Xenonauts: [link] Original aircraft design by Francois Cannels and base 3D model by the xenonauts team. I took some liberty to change the original design a bit. Changes include an added gun port and modified wings geometries so they look closer to generation v aircraft's design. Lastly an alien jolly roger skull as my tribute to the Jolly Roger tail insignia =D

Looks awesome and it's better looking than the F-35 in my opinion! :)

I love the geometry of this craft.  Like the beautiful lovechild between an F-14 and an F22.

Interesting design composition. Overall silhouette reminiscent of the YF-23. Swing-wing from the F-14/F-111/B-1.  Thrust vector similar to the F-22. Gun placement similar to the F-15. Very cool.

Problems/Solution/Rebuttal:
P: Most of the weight of the aircraft gets transmitted through the pivot joint of the wings, making the pivot the most stressed piece of the craft.
S: Fixed wing
R: swing wings look cool

P: Presumption: gun is USAF std. 20mm Vulcan. The gun placement interferes with the pivot mechanism of the wing.
S: move gun/change gun/fixed wing
R: its fiction and looks cool.

P: Gun exhaust gasses feed directly into visible engine air intake.
S: move gun/build baffle that directs gun gasses around past air intake/visible is bypass only, primary intake actually on bottom of craft.
R: its fiction and looks cool.

Yea for example the basic xenonaut fighter is the F-17 Condor and upgraded F-16, uograded in a sense that it has greater survivability against alien plasma weapons

If that's not Sand Island down there, it looks like the tiny chain of islands near where you take down the Arkbird.

Wow that's a really really nice aircraft design. Obviously reminiscent of the F-14, but much more sleek and streamlined.
I bet the maintenance for those wings is insane, haha...

But really, this is a beautiful painting. When I need an aircraft design commissioned, you're the first person I'm going to come to for that. :)
