That A-23D is one serious-looking brute! Same radiator arrangement as the Sturmovik?

Hello Lauhof,

Would you consider giving the F3 a turbo-prop?  :)  Maybe couple of airframes are acquired by Pilatus and they convert them to turbo-props for the Swiss Air Force?  :D

Keep up the good work!

Regards,

CPT Mike

When the turboprop engine was developed end of the second world war, the US Navy and Marines were testing and having research to use the engine. Especially for fast takeoff and landingsprocedures on board carriers or on short runways or rough terrain. End 1949 two squadrons were equipped with the F3UL-5T. Here are two; from USN from VF-61 in 1949 and one from the Marines VMA-212 in Korea, were they were successful.

Hi Lauhof,

Once again you have created one beautiful aircraft...that turbo F3 is sleek, looks incredibly fast, and could probably give better than it recieves in a fight!  :D  Excellent job and thanks for taking my request... :)

Best regards,

CPT Mike

very nice :) where's the exhaust ?  Do away with the radiator tub & add a big pipe either on the nose or wingroot like the Wyvern too ?

Maybe the exhaust is on the starboard side of the fuselage...

Here is one from the starboard side with the exhaust pipe, from VF-14. Also the USAF tested the turboprop as A-23FT, here is one from 64th FS in Alaska.

Thank you for the compliment! The F3UL is made of lavochkin I-185 (wingand partly body), this T-version has a F2G corsair body and tailwing and an adjusted wyvern engine (turboprop)

Beautiful aircraft, though the exhaust location makes me think the pilot may need an especially cooled flight suit.
