Skytractor (of the people)
« on: May 06, 2017, 10:59:40 PM »
Comrades of our glorious Motherland, we,  the 'Totally free thinking commissariat for the profitable production of porcine produce & perfectly legal aviation observation in foreign nations, have been hard at work with the 4077th Military & Agricultural Services Hegemony, designing and producing the new weapon/machinery to protect and feed the motherland.

Using many ready to hand materials of building, we, the TFTCFTPPOPP & PLAOIFN and the 4077th MASH, proudly present;

The SKYTRACTOR.
Capable of ploughing, seeding, harvesting crops, muck spreading, crop spraying by land and air, bombing, strafing, rocketing and
aerobatics, we offer this design to the nation.
If I don't plan it, it can't go wrong!

If it's great, I did it. If it's naff, I found it.

Test pilot Igor Bashatestoff was so stunned by the performance that he crashed the first prototype.  We fully expect a good report from replacement pilot Rogerkov Ramjetski, who has flown the Skytractor successfully, just as soon as he sobers up. (About a week?)

This tractor is in the colours of The Red Ploughers, please note the glorious red star hidden on each wing.

Glorious Monument to Valiant Soviet Tractorist who defended the Motherland in the Amur River Border Incident against cowardly Chinese counter-revolutionists!
Cheers,

Just great and had me laughing to no end!

They used to say the Soviet version of My Mother the Car was called "My Mother the Tractor". Well now it seems we have the Mother of All Flying Soviet Tractors!

Take a bow, Mr Flyer! This one is a real wonder!

Love this build  :-*

... Capable of ploughing, seeding, harvesting crops, muck spreading, crop spraying by land and air, bombing, strafing, rocketing and aerobatics ...

... and, later on, the TFTCFTPPOPP & PLAOIFN/4077th MASH developed a multi-role version  ;D
