Many people know about the famous VC-25 aircraft. However, this plane is just as important, possibly even cooler with more cool features and has many unique capabilities. But what is it?
About the plane
The Boeing E-4B is essentially the plane that should, God forbid, Doomsday shall come, the US government shall hop on and command the US from it. It has a unique analogue cockpit with just 2 glass displays and a navigation station. It’s interiors also are unique in that it less resembles a plane and instead the whole interior is set up to be able to command the country. It is also designed to be able to carry up to 182 passengers and crew on board, and has refueling capabilities.
How I think that this would be implemented
The plane would probably have to be a separate model due to the differences. The cockpit would be similar to the current VC25 and 747-200 cockpits, but it would also have the navigation station and the 2 glass displays, and the refueling bump at the top. These would be the major differences, but it would also have the features from the DC10/MD11 and the CRJ update. It would have the new gear and steering mechanism, opening doors, refueling capabilities, high quality cockpit, and perhaps most exciting of all, an interior similar to the CRJ. It would be unique in that we would have views likely from the lower and upper deck, and the interior that simulates the look of all of the computers and such. No, you wouldn’t have the ability to control the USA xD xD xD but it would have the same look on the inside, which would definitely look great at night.
Why this would make a great addition to IF
This is one of the most unique planes in the USAF, and has so many capabilities and potential. Many people would love it’s unique interior and cockpit, and it’s refueling capabilities and range means that there are so many missions and possibilities out there. Plus, this adds on to the military section of IF, which needs more planes and reworks. Overall, this is a plane that people would love to fly, to have, and is just so cool. Plus, the livery isn’t too shabby either ;)
