The T-28 Trojan will never be a considered a beautiful aircraft like sleek piston powered fighters such as the Mustang and Spitfire. The aircraft was initially created as a two seat trainer for the US Air Force with the first aircraft flying in 1949. The aircraft had a short production run with the last new T-28 delivered in 1958.

The original A model had a miserly 800 horsepower, 7 cylinder radial engine and a two bladed prop. The Navy became interested in the aircraft and ordered 491 B models which had the considerably more powerful 1425 horsepower Wright Cyclone R-1820-86 9 cylinder engine. The C model followed a few years later and this was modified with a tail hook for carrier operation. A shorter prop was installed on the C to prevent prop strike. Some of the original A models were modified with a larger engine and became the D model. These D models saw combat in various regions around the world.

This aircraft is based upon the T-28D “Huff ‘n’ Puff” from Warbird Aviation at Archerfield Airport.
 

The initial release is only for the T-28D. It may be possible that in the future the A,B and C models will be done (stay tuned!)

Typical cruise speeds for the T-28D are 180 to 200 kts with 30 in Hg of manifold pressure and 2000 rpm. Climb rates can approach 4000 fpm.

    I was waiting a long time for this one to be released. It is a unique military aircraft and when Ant decided to make it, I was thrilled. I am happy to report Ant has done a superb job on this model. It is his largest aircraft made to date and quite possibly his best so far. If you love the classic miliatry props, get this!
