Description

The Vigilante RQ-4 Global Hawk is an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) that can carry out reconnaissance and surveillance missions using its high-resolution sensors as well as wide band satellite data links. It is operated remotely and comes equipped with a Rolls-Royce AE3007H turbofan engine.

This vehicle blueprint is flyable and comes fully rigged, including animated gears, rudders, ailerons, and spoilers. A destructible state model is included with damaged geometry, textures, fire & smoke FX. This asset also includes a dust FX that appears when flying near the terrain. The RQ-4 is ready for import into your DIS/HLA (RPR FOM) simulation projects and can be modified as needed to suit your purpose.

It is designed for simulations and supports movement from the JSBSim Flight Dynamics Model (FDM) library. This vehicle comes with two movement types, each with its own vehicle Blueprint: JSBSim integrated and projectile based movement.

JSBSim is an open source, platform-independent, flight dynamics model in C++, and the movement system uses data from its FDM, which can be easily replaced, as described in the documentation below. Also, the environmental clouds are utilizing the Volumetrics plugin from Epic Games.

A sample showcase/demo Blueprint has been included with an environment map and User Interface (UI). When you “Play” the map, the UI includes camera presets, sliders, and buttons to demonstrate the key functionalities of the vehicle. From this map you can also start flying the vehicle.

 

Disclaimer: This vehicle uses the Volumetrics plugin from Epic Games and JSBSim Flight Dynamics Model (FDM) from the JSBSim team for demonstration purposes only. The vehicle can be used and modified without these plugins enabled in your personal projects.

The Volumetrics plugin is used for the clouds in the scene by utilizing the volume creation and rendering tools therein.

The JSBSim FDM integrated movement requires an appropriate flight model in XML format. Vigilante LLC uses only the publicly available FDMs and does not provide actual airplane FDM itself.

All rights of the Volumetrics plugin and the JSBSim library are the exclusive property of Epic Games and the JSBSim team respectively. Vigilante does make any warranties, inferred or implied, regarding the use of Epic’s plugins nor of the JSBSim team’s library or flight models.
