VA-177 is a Saab 105-esque strike aircraft. Slightly larger in size, and heavier in mass.


This aircraft has two victim I mean pilot seats in the cockpit. It is also three times heavier than the craft it was inspired from, with twice the fuel capacity, 8 times the thrust, and it has 8 hardpoints - two more in total compared to Saab 105. But having more stuff isn't always better, the craft here flies like a cow. Not sure about the 105 itself, though.
I've prepared a preset loadout here, consisting of two drop tanks, two gun pods, two AGMs, and two AAMs. Why are there gun pods? Cause Saab 105 doesn't have built-in guns.

Activation Groups

AG 1: Engines
AG 2: Navigation Lights
AG 3: Strobe Lights
AG 4: Payload Jettison (jettisons everything attached to the hardpoints)
AG 8: Landing Gears

Saab 105 for comparison.

By the way, I think earlier variants of the Saab 105 was called Sk 60. There is barely any difference between both aircraft.


Note: The hardpoint payloads are only for aesthetics, they don't work. The external drop tanks are functional (Jet fuel is prioritized here), the missiles works partially (dumb missiles), and the gun pods are only dead weight.
