The Sentinel features a tailhook to assist in performing carrier takeoffs and landings, and can also have its wings folded to allow for easier storage and transportation aboard carriers.

Features Edit

Arma3-Sentinel-Loadout

Sentinel pylon configuration

The Sentinel has an internal bay that has two pylons that support dynamic loadouts, and each pylon can be fitted with one of the following:

  • Macer II (2×)
  • GBU-12 (1×)

The Sentinel's laser designator can also be used for self-designation in order to guide its own GBU-12 bombs.

TriviaEdit

  • The Sentinel is based on the X-47B, which was developed by Northrop Grumman for the U.S. Navy's now-cancelled Unmanned Carrier-Launched Airborne Surveillance and Strike (UCLASS) system.
  • It also bears a resemblance to the X-47B's successor, the MQ-25A Stingray, which incidentally is also developed by Northrop Grumman for the U.S. Navy's follow-on program to succeed UCLASS, the Unmanned Carrier Aviation Air System (UCAAS).
  • The Sentinel is currently the only fixed-wing jet aircraft in ArmA 3 that uses a flying wing design.
