Erm, i'm gonna take a guss here and say most, if not all, undercarriages were designed to withstand rough terrain.

Why would you design it any other way?

In the real world tail draggers handle the rough better than tricycle and bigger wheels and wider track on the main gear are a bonus as well.

I would say a 262 can't. It had a weak nose gear that would probably snap off. But yea other than that I'd say 99.9% could.

This is your typical "bush plane" intended for landing on rough or makeshift strips, note tail dragger with BIG wheels.

The short take off and landing contests with those are great fun to watch.

New Question...What if you had the tail-dragger version of the Me-262, and you drove on grass with it?

You'd quite likely set the grass alight. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/53.gif

Which is how the British photo interpreters determined if an airfield had been operating jet aircraft. They first photographed their own field that had been operating Meteors, compared them to GAF field in pictures for confirmation that this was in fact what they were seeing.

See Constance Babbington Smith's - Evidence in Camera.

There was one. There are a number of photos around the internet of this version.

Edit: there's an example here: http://www.meteorflight.com/wa.../pages/jet_age-me262 (http://www.meteorflight.com/waveplus/meteor.nsf/pages/jet_age-me262)

I always find on unpaved, go slower than 30 km, usually 30 km / hr has you bouncing around and then you get engine inoperable . .

haven't successfully taken off either . . .



tail dragger 262 just doesn't seem right . . .

logic has props are tail draggers so there's enough clearance not to run into interference.

but it'd be variety funny cool if the sim had one.

Oh and for owl's next question, which is about sea plane landing,

it is similar to land landings, just flare up a bit.


and some sea planes are AI only, which of course can be changed . . .

Yup, the original Me262 was a tail dragger :-
