Description

A fully functional and realistically scaled replica of the British-made Short Sunderland flying boat.

The Short Sunderland was a flying boat developed from the S.23 Empire. It was used primarily as a patrol bomber and anti-submarine plane by the British during World War 2.

The Mk.3 version of the Sunderland maintains the improved M15A1 cannon from the Mk.2 Sunderland, but is also armed with more weapons and ordinance as a general upgrade in firepower. The camouflage scheme has also been repainted, switching from its naval colours to summer colours.

This schematic should be Movecraft compatible if a craft file can be written for it.

Crew:

This plane is operated by a crew of 8 players in the following layout:

2 Pilots
1 Cannoneer
1 Frontal gunner (Behind the pilots)
1 Bombardier
1 Waist Gunner (Operates both Left and Right guns)
2 Tail gunners (Upper and Lower gunners)

Can be skeleton-crewed by as few as 4, but not recommended.

Weapons and Armament:

Main gun:
1x Obsidia M15A1 Self Loading Howitzer.
An improvement over the previous model of weapon. This weapon is slightly longer in the plane's internal space, and has an increased range of up to 180 blocks forward.

Frontal Armament:
6x Fireball HMG. (Upgraded from 4)
Automatic dispenser machine guns Installed on the upper half of the plane, fire controls are behind the pilots' seats.

Defensive Armament:
2x Waist Guns, Left and Right sides.
These guns are powered by the same Redstone Pulser circuit. Turn the Comparators behind the Dispensers on or off to alternate between Left and Right guns.

4x Rear Guns (Upgraded from 3)
These tail guns are pointed backwards and are fully automatic. Lower half has 2, upper half has 2.

Anti Ground Ordinance:
6x Automatic Carpet Bomb Dispenser. (Upgraded from 4)
Six fully-loaded dispensers of TNT. Used for carpet bombing ground targets, ships and submarines.

Additional Notes:

> All weapons can be loaded safely from the inside of the plane.
> Crew quarters is in the lowest part of the plane.
> The plane contains 8 sets of custom armor and weapons for basic use.
> Contains 3 Command Blocks at the pilot's interface.

Place on airfields, in mid-air or on water (5 blocks or deeper) near coastlines for best effect.

Changes and Edits:
>Increased frontal armament from 4 guns to 6 guns.
>Added waist guns on left and right sides.
>Increased rear guns from 3 to 4.
>Increased TNT dispensers from 4 to 6.
>Naval colour scheme changed to Summer colour scheme.

IMPORTANT: Several blocks such as Stairs, Dispensers and Droppers may not rotate with the rest of the schematic if it is rotated, mirrored or flipped.
