View Full Version : It must be something wrong with the TB3

12-28-2005, 11:47 AM
i was bored, so I made a Onlinemission, Start at the carrier, I tried to start a TB3 from a carrier, and the plane raise in the middle of the Ship, then I tried it again, this time with 4x FAP1000 + 14xFAP50 + 100% Fuel. And the plane raise in the middle of the carrier again.
Is that normal?

TB3 is modelled according to very acccurate and stict TsAGI tests as the most soviet planes in the game.
So, altough the answer looks like NO, more likely should be YES..in the game.

The TB-3 can take off with a full load at around 100-110kph in the game. Now if you are starting from a moving carrier, you are already travelling around 55kph, so it takes very little for the TB-3 to get off the deck.

Plus, have you seen the size of that things wings? They are monstrously large, and the aircraft is relatively light, which means two things: there is an enormous amount of lift generated from the wings, and secondly, because the aircraft is relatively light, the lift generated gets tha taircraft into the air much faster.

Whether the TB-3 could have actually taken off from a carrier in real life, I don't know, but it is certainly fun to do it!

I've a track of TB3 taking off, and shortly after completing a full loop with 2 I~16's attached.

You don't mean a TBF, by any chance?

They might mean the TBM-3. The TB-3's wingspan is huge, too huge for a carrier.

No they don't.

And no it's not.

And yes you can take off a TB-3 with a full bombload and fuel from a stationary carrier.
