- Detailed 3D model of the E-8C Joint STARS in United States Air Force - USAF - paint scheme.-
- The model is provided with many parts that can be animated such as spoilers, flaps, ailerons, slats, elevators, rudders, landing gear, wheels, landing gear doors, fans and thrust reversers. Model is currently not rigged.-
- Textures are included, applied and mapped so, the model is ready to render.-
- Polygon count for Lightwave, Cinema 4D and Maya files:
Faces: 206475 Vertices: 211054
- For .obj file, you may need to reassign an opacity map applied to a small part of the fuselage and adjust the values of reflections.-
- The scenes are NOT included. The model is delivered with all its parts in a static position and the landing gear down.-
History ********* The E-8 Joint Surveillance Target Attack Radar System (Joint STARS) is a United States Air Force Airborne ground surveillance, battle management and command and control aircraft. It tracks ground vehicles and some aircraft, collects imagery, and relays tactical pictures to ground and air theater commanders. The aircraft is operated by both active duty Air Force and Air National Guard units and also carries specially trained U.S. Army personnel as additional flight crew.
The E-8C is an aircraft modified from the B707-300 series commercial airliner. The E-8 carries specialized radar, communications, operations and control subsystems. The most prominent external feature is the canoe-shaped radome under the forward fuselage that houses the side-looking APY-7 passive electronically scanned array antenna.
The E-8C can respond quickly and effectively to support worldwide military contingency operations. It is a jam-resistant system capable of operating while experiencing heavy electronic countermeasures. The E-8C can fly a mission profile for 9 hours without refueling. Its range and on-station time can be substantially increased through in-flight refueling. (From Wikipedia)
