X-Plane 11.30+ Valiant B1 3.1.1. The Valiant was the first V bomber in service, and the first out of service! It was designed as a low-tech stop gap until the more risky Vulcan and Victor were brought into service. The Valiant didn't have the aesthetic beauty of its Vulcan and Victor stable-mates, so it's the lesser known V-bomber. This is a collaborative work using the existing build previously posted. It is released as a new plane because it has has significant added functionality. Major credits are to Daniel Grimes for his original framework, and also to Dom Henry for hours of detailed graphics work and subsequent object blending (particularly on the complicated intake area). Undercarriage, airbrake, intake geometry and bomb bay improvements were my own main contributions. Includes an operational 3D cockpit, seats and night lighting. Version 3.1.1: modified nuclear weapons for better free fall. Please see the included documentation for further details on this model. By Ray Hill.
