Fa 29 Thunderhoof by lonewolf3878 Fa 29 Thunderhoof by lonewolf3878
Finally got the digital version done. Made some changes to the description.

This is my take on the FA/29 plane from :iconkalashnikovmarine: 's Stormriders fanfic. The basis for it is the SU-34, which has some of the features of the FA/29 including cockpit entry from the bottom. It also adopts stuff from the F-14, F-15, and FA/18. It's about 10% larger than the SU-34.
For weapons, the storm cannon is housed just behind the nose, and extends out from the bottom when the system is activated. It also has a 20MM Vulcan cannon above the air intake on the right side. It's huge engines allow it to carry up to 26,000 lbs of external ordnance and fuel on 11 hard points. The lazer designator is located just behind the nose gear.
It's avalable in both single and 2 seater versions (on the 2 seater the 2nd crewpony has to enter by opening the rear canopy).
A small radar in the rear of the plane between the engines makes threat detection from behind easier. The controls are a wired in body system that fits on the pilot so the plane basically becomes part of them.

I added some extra details to the plane (hatches, seams, etc.) so it looks more like an actual plane (nice thing about freelancing: You don't have to worry about getting details wrong).

I'm actually working on a spinoff of Stormriders with ~kalashnikovmarine's approval. I was wondering if you were willing to work on a striker design for it?

I figured this was the striker version. If it's different i'd need a little info on what to add/remove, but yeah I can do it.

It's based on the A-10 Thunderbolt II. I'll note you with the details.

Laser is spelled with an s. (LASER being short for Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation)

lonewolf thou shalt be rewarded, Chapter 11 is in editing right now and it's a little more then 4000 words of pure asskicking and adrenaline.

I take it that's what you had in mind for what the Thunderhoof looks like then? ;P

Looking forward to C-11!
