The UNADS F-29 Warrior is a family of Emmerian fifth-generation, single-seat, twin-engine, supersonic, supermaneuverable, all-weather stealth multirole fighter jets designed to perform aerial warfare, ground attack, electronic warfare, and signals intelligence missions. The F-29A standard Air Force variant, F-29B STOVL Marine Corps variant, and F-29C carrier-capable variant are all designed to replace the previous F-16 Fighting Falcon, F/A-18C/D Hornet, and AV-8B Harrier used by the United Republic of Emmeria and its allies. Built by a large aerospace industry team led by UNADS and Alliance Industries, the jet combines the unique and varied doctrinal requirements across the world into one all-round fighter jet.

The F-29 Warrior is the product of the Joint Dominance Fighter (JDF) program to develop a multiservice, multirole fixed-wing fifth-generation stealth fighter that fit the requirements of all services of the U.R. Defense Force. Although named the "Warrior", the F-29's design has no structural similarity to the previous F-16, which was often called Viper by its aircrews. It physically bears more resemblance to a stealth version of an F-15 Eagle, or more so to the conceptual Mitsubishi ATD-X stealth fighter program.

The F-29 Warrior is claimed by the U.R. Air Force to be a vital component of U.R. tactical air power. Its combination of stealth, speed, agility, precision, situational awareness, and blend of exceptional air-to-air and air-to-ground capabilities have led several nations around the world to adopt it as a versatile multirole fighter capable of providing advanced aerial dominance in the rapidly evolving warfare environment today.

The Joint Dominance Fighter (JDF) program was designed to replace a number of 4 and 4.5 generation legacy fighters after a strategic defense review determined that modern aircraft had significant capabilities for upgrade. It was initiated in the early 1990s by the United Republic, whose domestic United Aerospace Defense Systems (UNADS) won the contract to produce the aircraft. Other nations were invited in a joint effort to contribute to the program, including the Democratic Holy Empire of Phonencia, the Yhdistyneet Kansakunnat of Finorskia, the United Socialist States of America, the United Federation of the New Lowlands, and the Fascist Empire of Aquitayne. The American/Phonencian/Finorskian multinational firm Alliance Industries was a major development partner, currently the second-largest producer of parts for the F-29 (second to UNADS). The project dominated military-related politics throughout the 1990s and early 2000s, as the program's rapidly increasing costs controversially conflicted with the shrinking military budgets of all of its participating nations. A large number of issues flared during early testing, leading to further cost overruns and delays, in addition to several nations reducing their order. As issues were slowly resolved, the JDF program finally reached initial operational capability (IOC) in early 2006. This was followed by a number of larger orders, as full operational capability was declared in 2008 and large numbers of aircraft were procured. The cost of each individual aircraft at the time was well over USD $250 million; however, after several large orders, the cost rapidly decreased until it stabilized at roughly USD $97-120 million per aircraft. Although still considered high for a multirole fighter, it is relatively low-cost amidst other similar fifth-generation fighters with comparable capabilities, such as the F-35.

One of the intended goals of the program was to develop a high-performance fighter with advanced electronics and avionics systems that can avoid threats using its stealthy nature and defensive aids system, while being extremely survivable if detected. The fighter's abundance of redundancies allows it to stay in the air and land safely even with severe damage to critical components. For long-range interdiction or SEAD, the fighter is effective in that it is extremely difficult to detect due to its stealthy design and materials in construction, as well as its sophisticated sensors and electronic defensive aids which automatically detect incoming threats (such as missile launches or artillery) and act in the best way possible to defeat the threat.

The F-29 is in active service in the U.R. Air Force, Navy, Marine Corps, Air Colonial Guard, and Air Force Reserve Command. The United Republic operates a total of 2,443 aircraft—1,623 F-29A, 250 F-29B, and 570 F-29C. The largest operator of the F-29 is the Continental Navy of Aurenoria, which operates 58,000 F-29C EMLAR. The aircraft is employed by a number of other nations across the world.

The F-29 is an advanced fighter jet that incorporates stealth technology. Its dual afterburning UNADS F151-UNA (F-29A/C) turbofans or F152-UNA (F-29B) vectoring turbofans both incorporate fluidic thrust vectoring to enhanced maneuverability. In addition, the F-29B has a lift fan that opens up behind the cockpit. The aircraft can supercruise, in which state the F-29A can reliably maintain Mach 1.81 with superior fuel efficiency as compared to fighters without supercruise capability, which must employ the use of afterburners in order to fly at supersonic speeds. The engines are among the most powerful jet engines ever used for a fighter jet (behind the twin-engine PAK FA).

The F-29's incredible agility is supplemented with variable control surfaces, multi-axis fluidic thrust vectoring, and high-effect air brakes. In total, the aircraft consists of over three dozen control surfaces, ranging from multiple wing decelerons, canted vertical stabilizers (that also act as ruddervators and split rudders as an airbrake) with rudders as well, horizontal stabilators, six separate non-dedicated air brakes (using various FCS), intake blocks, and additional wing surface adjustment controls. These are operated by low-maintenance electro-hydrostatic actuators (EHAs) powered by the aircraft's integrated power management system. A majority of flight control surfaces simply act as redundancies as most flight maneuvers can be accomplished with thrust vectoring alone.

The F-29B is designed to be able to perform vertical or short takeoff and landing using its thrust vectoring and lift fan. The primary lift fan, located directly behind the cockpit, opens up when the pilot activates STOVL mode. This fan provides a powerful downwards thrust that helps lift the aircraft off the ground with ease when supplemented with the two rear engines being turned completely downwards. Due to its low fuel efficiency, vertical takeoff mode is usually reserved for short-range missions (or not used at all operationally); short takeoffs, however, are very common, particularly from amphibious assault ships and aircraft carriers without catapult launch systems. The URMC uses this capability to land on unimproved surfaces, particularly at forward operating bases. Hover mode is often used when the jet performs close air support, allowing it to aim its cannons at ground forces effectively. It can also be used to exit a stall, allowing the jet to fly at extremely low speeds for close air support operations; however, this leaves it vulnerable to anti-aircraft weapons.

The airframe is designed with advanced composites and integrated heat distribution systems to enable efficient supersonic flight in atmosphere. The advanced stealth materials (SM) include radar-absorbent materials, infrared signature reduction, and more. The aircraft is less detectable than legacy platforms across the electromagnetic spectrum. RCS-reducing fibers augment these materials, and are designed to reduce the intense heat from friction of air resistance across the airframe, which allows the airframe to withstand extremely high speeds. The airframe is constructed from a basis of advanced metal matrix composites, formed from high strength oxide fibers and a titanium/aluminum laminate matrix. This results in high strength crystal matrices, forming a strong, flexible, and light airframe.

The U.R. Air Force utilizes a "compass ghost" paint scheme, often associated with air superiority fighters, consisting of two shades of grey on the jet. The Navy and Marine Corps use different shades of a "multirole grey" scheme, consisting of solid dark grey. The Marine Corps's scheme is slightly darker. Specific squadrons may be cleared to utilize custom paint schemes, such as the deceptive "Dogfighter" scheme made famous by the Navy's VFA-41 "Black Aces", which gives a similar appearance on both the top and bottom of the aircraft to confuse adversaries during dogfights.

The aircraft is designed with survivability as a major priority. Its EHAs are all double redundant, as are the avionics systems. The landing gear is also full of failsafes, so should the EHAs fail, the wheels are hinged to the rear so that wind resistance can cause them to deploy. The fuel tanks are self-sealing and protected with fire-retardant foam, preventing them from leaking or exploding. The aircraft itself is claimed by UNADS to be able to fly, with assistance from the onboard computers, with half of an entire wing missing (due to its lifting-body principle-based design) and only operating on a single engine. The undercarriage is hardened against rough landings and the engines are ideal for taking off and landing from unprepared landing strips and are resistant to bird strikes. The canopy is bird- and ordnance-resistant, with a thick windscreen. The extensive survivability measures are intended to allow the aircraft to perform close air support at slow speeds effectively against enemy air defenses which, coupled with the aircraft's SPECTRA countermeasures system, makes it an effective replacement for the A-10, particularly in the URMC and U.R. Navy, who do not field the A-10 and rely on the F-29 to provide air defense and ground strike capability.

Overall, the F-29 is highly maneuverable at both high supersonic and low subsonic speeds. Its fluidic thrust vectoring, high thrust-weight ratio, and low wing loading allow it to turn tightly and perform extremely high angle of attack maneuvers such as the Herbst maneuver, Pugachev's Cobra, and the Kulbit. It can also maintain a constant angle of attack of over 60°, while continuing to maintain control of roll. The aircraft is claimed to have a rate of climb greater than that of the F-15, supplementing its overall dogfighting capability.

The use of internal weapons bays allows the aircraft to maintain a comparatively higher performance with a heavy payload as compared to other aircraft due to decreased drag. It can also intercept time-critical or rapidly moving targets that a subsonic aircraft would not have the speed to follow and an afterburner-dependent aircraft would lack fuel to reach, such as missiles or high-speed hypersonic bombers/interceptors.

One of the primary design attributes is the unique low-maintenance design of the aircraft. In order to ease maintenance and parts repair and replacement, almost 91% of the aircraft's parts are "one-deep", meaning no additional parts have to be removed to access the part in question. High-performance composite materials ease maintenance, and all parts are tracked and shared on a global scale as needed. Crew comfort is another major element of the design, with the aircraft being designed for long missions while retaining short-range mission capability.

Image

The F-29 features a complete 50x20 cm panoramic cockpit display (PCD) glass cockpit with a cockpit speech recognition system (DIVOCAR) to improve the pilot's ability to operate the aircraft. The PCD displays all vital flight information, and its information can also be displayed on the pilot's HMD while viewing through EO DAS mode. Its configuration is customizable through a simple menu, allowing the pilot to utilize the display to his or her preferences. The cockpit layout is minimalist and streamlined to be as simple and easy-to-use as possible, allowing the pilot to focus on making tactical decisions rather than be more concerned about controlling basic aircraft functions. The fighter lacks an inbuilt heads-up display (HUD), instead relying entirely on the pilot's helmet-mounted display.

The canopy is made of thick bullet-resistant polycarbonate with liquid glass coating and a stealthy tint, protecting the occupant from solar rays, laser dazzles, and electronic interference. It also provides limited protection against enemy fire. It is a frameless single-piece bird-proof bubble canopy uniquely hinged on the front, with no bow frame to increase visibility. The frontal portion is tapered to be thicker to allow resistance to bird-strikes and even ballistics. In addition, the ejection seat is elevated to provide a large field of vision to the pilot, and it is reclined to increase pilot resistance to G-forces. The canopy shatters upon ejection using integrated explosives, allowing the pilot to eject at extremely low speed, including while the aircraft is parked on the ground; this is referred to as "zero-zero" capability.

A demonstration of the JACES
helmet. Click to enlarge.
The integrated G-suit and helmet-mounted display system is the Vizispace Joint Aviator Combat Engagement System (JACES), consisting of a flight suit and helmet. This ensemble allows the pilot to view the battlefield through the aircraft's EO DAS system, providing him with a complete spherical view of the space around the aircraft in enhanced full-color or infrared mode. This system is preferred for use only during combat operations and provides pilots and CSOs with unparalleled situational awareness. The aircraft is designed without a built-in HUD display, instead relying completely on the pilot's HMD. The JACES is also capable of locking on to multiple targets simultaneously with simple controls, giving pilots significant overall combat capabilities. It projects a display that provides the pilot with vital flight information without looking down at the cockpit, providing the pilot with the ability to focus primarily on flying the jet. In addition, the G-suit provides resistance to G-forces of up to 9 g.

The helmet, in order to reduce weight and ensure compatibility with the Laertes IV ejection seat, is constructed from a metal matrix composite chassis with a carbon fiber polymer shell, and features lightweight polymer foam on the inside for shock absorbance. The helmet is connected via a short tube to the Laertes IV's suspended headrest, which in turn links with the seat's oxygen supply that is connected to the aircraft's facilities. This further reduces the weight load on the pilot's head to enhance endurance with high-g maneuvers.

The HMD provides the pilot with all necessary symbology required to fly the aircraft. The latest increment 2.7.4 software further updates the HMD for a unique "airstrike" mode which aids the pilot in operating air-to-ground weapons successfully. This system provides the pilot with the optimum airspeed and angle to perform an airstrike effectively, displaying the appropriate symbology on the HMD. The system also displays an "air highway", or "lanes" in the HMD, for the pilot to fly through in order to reach the necessary objective, thus reducing the need for the pilot to navigate manually. The software was developed initially for the United Nations Alliance's F-29s, although a subsequent software upgrade (i2.7.4) was distributed to all operators of the aircraft by UNADS that included the system ready for use.

The F-29 does not need to be pointing at its target for successful guided weapon deployment. Sensors on the aircraft can track, prioritize, and target nearby aircraft or ground units from all directions all the time, providing the information to the pilot. High off-boresight missiles allow the aircraft to aggressively attack hostile aircraft or ground units anywhere around the F-29, although this can significantly affect the range of the weapon. Sensors utilize combined radio frequency and situational awareness infrared search-and-track (SAIRST) to constantly track hostile aircraft and select and prioritize targets through the JACES. The pilot may select specific targets for lock simply by looking at them, pointing the HMD's reticle symbology at the target to achieve a lock.

These systems provide the F-29 with an edge in the OODA loop; its stealth and advanced sensors enhance observation while making the same difficult for the enemy, automated target tracking aids in orientation, sensor fusion drastically simplifies the incoming information to ease decision making, and the aircraft's fluid, simple controls allow the pilot to keep their focus on the targets rather than on controlling the aircraft.

The controls of an F-29 are arranged in a Hands On Throttle and Stick (HOTAS) side-stick configuration, allowing the pilot to operate almost all aircraft functions without taking his hands off the throttle and stick. The stick is usually to the right-hand side and the throttle left, although these can be switched with ease according to the pilot's preference. The cockpit features very few cockpit buttons and no analog flight instruments, with a majority of flight controls available via touchscreen, controls on the sticks, or direct voice input. Voice control is utilized for simpler maintenance and other tasks, while combat tasks utilize more conventional controls due to the split-second decision making required to perform them effectively.

F-29 fighter jets now feature a Symmetriad Laertes IV fourth-generation ejection seat, designated the SJU-20/A, produced under license by Universal Air Systems. This replaces the previous UAS SJU-19/B third-generation ejection seat in early production versions. The Laertes IV employs hybrid rocket propulsion for safe ejection, further utilizing protective netting to allow ejection at higher altitudes and airspeeds.

One of the seat's prime features is its enhanced ergonomics. It is adjustable in all three axes in order to accommodate almost any fighter pilot. It also features "G feedback", a special feature designed to optimize the ejection seat's position and actions depending on the present g forces. The armrests move alongside the rest of the arm according to the g forces acting upon the pilot at the time, allowing the pilot to move his arms without overwhelming difficulty. The seat also reclines during high-g or negative-g maneuvers while simultaneously moving forward to allow the pilot to maintain access to the controls, reducing the overall effects of g forces on the pilot.

The F-29 contains two primary flight computers: one redundant system and a liquid state primary system, all ruggedized and hardened against potential threats. The computers utilize a fly-by-light system that uses fiber optics, which is highly resistant to damage and interference, and is itself double redundant; this system is supplemented with a redundant hardened fly-by-light system. A primary advantage to using fiber optics rather than traditional wires (fly-by-wire) is that fiber optics transfer information faster and more efficiently, and their lighter weight reduces a significant amount of weight inside the aircraft.

The avionics are supported by all-purpose GPS with interference protection. It also features an array of cyber warfare systems designed to protect the fighter and can act as electronic warfare computers to jam enemy systems. This allows the aircraft to act as a dedicated electronic warfare platform without modification, although additional electronic warfare systems can be mounted in the aircraft's gun pods or hardpoints as well.

The primary sensor system is the Rayzero AN/APG-90 Sensory Combat AESA Network (SCAN), a multi-mode AESA radar system. This phased array radar is a highly advanced radar that is smaller than conventional radars and has no need for physical motion, making it more reliable and less demanding of maintenance than legacy systems. Its increased field of view, extremely rapid scanning rate, increased range, and the ability to track and engage a large number of air and surface targets simultaneously, in addition to its low probability of interception or detection and ability to function as an electronic warfare jamming system make it extremely capable. The system's synthetic aperture radar mode make it well suited for anti-ground warfare; although incapable of actually simultaneously tracking air and ground targets, the radar switches between the two so rapidly that it seems simultaneous to the pilot. The radar consists of a primary array in the nose and two secondary arrays in the cheeks, providing a wide angle of coverage. An additional rear-facing radar augments this capability, providing a large coverage zone to detect threats anywhere around the aircraft. The radar features several modes, ranging from stealth modes to aerial combat to air-to-ground. It also features "look down/shoot down" capability, meaning it can detect, track, and engage a target beyond the horizon, and it also is able to engage targets below the aircraft from long range. Three dimensional radar views or "situational awareness" 3D visual views (using LIDAR and radar as well as the EO DAS sensors) can be projected onto the HMD.

The radars are supported by an AN/ALR-82 radar warning receiver, which features antennas facing 45, 135, 225, and 315 degrees, providing 360° RWR coverage for maximum threat detection and interception.

In addition, the aircraft features an AN/AAQ-38 electro-optical distributed aperture system (EO DAS) that provides a 360° "sphere" of situational awareness through the use of an array of advanced sensors that provide hybrid thermal, visual, and light-intensified data. These sensors, placed around the aircraft, are integrated with laser warning receivers, infrared missile approach warning systems, and other sensors to provide maximum situational awareness without compromising the aircraft's stealth design. This serves many functions; it alerts the pilot or CSO of any threats and triangulates the location of the threats (such as the launch point or even potential launch point of a surface-to-air missile), predicts the target, provides information for the elimination of the threat, or reacts to the threat by deploying appropriate countermeasures automatically. In addition, connecting to the pilot or CSO's HMD, the system provides a spherical view of the battlefield with all vital navigation and target data, allowing advanced tracking and enhanced night operations capability. The system also contains several modes for pilot viewing; these include "full view" which replaces the entire view of the pilot with a spherical view through the EO DAS and a "canopy view" which provides superior visibility in all directions while retaining the aircraft's flight controls and displays in the cockpit.

EO DAS sensors form the basis of the aircraft's entire countermeasures suite, AN/ALQ-43 SPECTRA (self-protection electronic countermeasures, tracking, and response, aircraft). SPECTRA is an advanced self-protection system that greatly enhances an aircraft's survivability by using various methods of detection (EO DAS and STRIKE), jamming, and decoying to passively or actively defeat airborne and ground threats. It employs the aircraft's AN/ASQ-392 electronic warfare system, developed by Southard-Ackerman, and integrates the onboard Vehicle Countermeasures Package (VCP) (more information below) to defend the aircraft. In addition, the system features active radar cancellation, detecting wavelengths and intensity of incoming waves and generating matching waves of opposite phase that actively cancel the radar through destructive interference (part of the VCP). This process is entirely computer-controlled due to its complexity. SPECTRA as an overall self-protection system allows the aircraft to perform large-scale operations with little need to execute suppression of enemy air defenses (SEAD). This enhances the F-29's ability to perform interdiction missions, as it is able to strike deep within the enemy's territory while using SPECTRA to defend itself. SPECTRA also greatly enhances an aircraft's SEAD capability, useful when friendly aircraft cannot operate safely with enemy air defenses. SPECTRA is developed by an aerospace industry team led by Southard-Ackerman and Alliance Industries.

The aircraft features a Vehicle Countermeasures Package (VCP), which is a standardized countermeasure package. It features AN/VLE-10 laser dazzlers that deploy decoy laser beams; AN/VLQ-11 infrared countermeasures that emit modulating dazzling laser beams; AN/VLE-12 active radar cancellation systems; and AN/VLE-13 decoy launchers that can deploy high-powered infrared flares, ion flares, radar-defeating smoke generators, and chaffs.

When combined with advanced sensor fusion in the F-29's fusion engine, the fighter's sensory and avionics array makes it a comparatively difficult target to detect and destroy. The fighter alerts the pilot of threats (such as a missile launch) and their location (both through symbology on the HMD and through an auditory voice cue), and relays this information through datalinks to other allied units (including other F-29s) in the vicinity. The fusion engine then combines the array of sensory information to easily triangulate the launch point for the threat, attempts to determine the nature of the threat (IR missile, SAM, etc.), and provides the pilot with a recommended solution to evade the threat as well as deploying countermeasures (such as infrared dazzlers and flares for IR-guided missiles or employment of active cancellation and chaffs for radar-guided missiles). The goal is to simplify the information that must be processed by the pilot by attempting to perform a significant portion of the processing (such as combination of SAIRST, triangulation of missile launch points, etc.) through computer systems and providing the pilot with the output. The result is a significantly-reduced workload for the pilot (one of the key goals of the JDF program), allowing the pilot to commit to making tactical decisions on a fast-paced battlefield.

The F-29 also features an integrated AN/ASQ-144 Synchronized Target Relay Installation and Kill Emulator (STRIKE) electro-optical remote targeting system that is mounted internally under the nose. When deployed, it acts as a ground-observing full-color camera, hybrid phase thermal camera (all-direction FLIR), laser designator, laser rangefinder/LIDAR, and laser warning receiver/spot tracker. This allows the onboard tracking systems to identify, track, and engage targets at extended standoff ranges. The system is most commonly utilized as a laser designation system for dedicated ground attack aircraft while the F-29 is serving in a high-endurance loiter-type role or as an electronic warfare platform. However, it can be used to operate onboard laser-guided munitions, allowing a single F-29 crew to independently designate and engage targets with precision munitions. In addition, the targeting unit features a Low-altitude Navigation and Targeting Internal Network (LANTIRN) autopilot system, providing the pilot with "hands-off" terrain-following low-altitude capability in day or night, integrating onboard infrared and radar sensors.

Embedded in the right wingroot is a GAU-12 25 mm rotary cannon that is present on all models except the F-29B. However, it may be mounted in the form of a low-drag external gun pod on the belly of the aircraft in between the two weapon bays. Alternatively, the weapon may be removed and replaced with a comparable 20 mm or 30 mm rotary cannon.

The Warrior has two internal weapons bays along the bottom and sides of the fuselage (each containing three hardpoints), in addition to four underwing hardpoints and two near-wingtip hardpoints. Each hardpoint is rated for approximately 1150 kg, giving the F-29 a total payload capacity of about 9,200 kg, allowing it to store the heaviest of ordnance effectively; this makes the jet very capable in air-to-air or air-to-surface combat. The near-wingtip hardpoints are limited to a single air-to-air missile each, primarily short-to-mid range missiles such as the AIM-9X Sidewinder. The other pylons can carry these as well as the AIM-120D AMRAAM, other air-to-air and air-to-ground missiles, guided or unguided bombs, gun pods, guided or unguided rocket pods, equipment stores, and 1,800 L and 2,300 L external fuel tanks.

Internal weapon bays can also store a variety of ordnance. Up to two 2,000-lb (910 kg) bombs or four 1,000-lb (450 kg) bombs can be stored internally in the two bays combined. The bays also usually carry two smaller weapons, usually AIM-120D AMRAAM or AIM-9X Sidewinder missiles. Smaller bombs may be carried as well. Missiles are usually designed to fit in these bays, often with smaller foldout fins and advanced TVN. Using internal bays entirely, an air-to-air configuration of four AIM-120D AMRAAM missiles and four AIM-9X Python missiles is possible. Additionally, an air-to-ground configuration of two AIM-120D, two AIM-9X (for personal defense), and two 2,000-lb bombs is possible as well.

The F-29 is compatible with almost any missile or bomb designed to be operated with aircraft. This includes the MBDA Meteor missile, IRIS-T, JSOW, and more. Missiles stored inside its internal bays often have clipped or folding fins in order to maximize space efficiency.

The F-29's Sustainability Concept is designed to reduce the stress and cost of maintenance and parts replacement. All F-29 maintenance systems are "paperless" and all F-29 parts are tracked and shared on a global scale for rapid, efficient parts replacement. 91% of all parts are "one-deep", allowing maintenance and engineer crews to access a majority of systems without first removing other systems or parts. The entire aircraft is built in a "quick assembly" system, allowing major parts such as the entire fuselage to be removed and replaced. This allows damaged aircraft to more easily be returned to service, or provides the capability to easily scavenge surviving parts on damaged aircraft. The aircraft is built using more advanced composites and structural fiber mat, reducing the required maintenance. The maturation of several technologies has led to the reduced need for fragile materials such as stealthy coatings that are designed to overcome modern radars.

The F-29 contains a Self-diagnosis System (SDS) which tracks the status of all parts and systems, and it is capable of anticipating damages or the need for replacement; it then automatically orders the part that needs to be replaced. This reduces the cost of maintaining large stores of spare parts, with only limited stores required for immediate part replacement due to unanticipated damage. With the extensive logistics system associated with the aircraft, parts can be made available extremely quickly; in many cases, replacement parts were available on base before the aircraft even landed after diagnosing it to need replacement. The system also diagnoses parts damages that can be repaired by the maintenance crew, and provides all necessary data, including how to fix it, to the maintenance crew as soon as the damage is detected.

Companies that manufacture parts are also responsible for managing spare parts inventory and providing sustainment support. Each part contains an anticipated operating time, and the aircraft's operating time is tracked. The companies then manufacture specific parts as the ones on the aircraft approach the end of their operational life cycle. All parts and supplies are placed on the Logistics Information System, with their location and status tracked. This performance-based logistics system is enhanced and optimized for providing a minimal cost and maximum sustainability for the F-29.

Overall, the improved and networked maintenance systems, integrated pilot and maintenance training, the use of open-source software and programming, and parts commonality between services, are intended to reduce the aircraft's overall operating costs by 54%, as well as reducing the required maintenance to a mere 60 man hours per flight hour.

Upgrades to the F-29 are installed in increasing increments, with the current operating software being Increment 2.7.4. Three separate operational variants exist for the F-29.

United Republic

Since its introduction into active service in the U.R. Defense Force in 2008, the F-29 has served in a vital operational capacity for the United Republic, serving in every major operation involving air units, particularly alongside legacy fighters.

U.R. Air Force F-29A CTOL fighters were deployed to their first combat action in early 2012 to Mektavia to support the current regime against the Eastern Mektavian People's Army (EMPA) insurgents, aiding U.R. special forces units in the country in accomplishing their objectives. During the conflict the F-29 fighters flew a total of 1,300 sorties, mostly airstrikes against insurgent positions. An estimated 90% of the ordnance dropped by the fighters were laser-guided bombs. Due to their electronic warfare systems, stealthy nature, and the lack of sophisticated EMPA air defenses, no Emmerian fighters were shot down during the conflict.

A number of URN F-29C fighters were deployed aboard the carrier URS Orion to the People's Republic of Trotskytopia during the 2012 Trotskytopian Crisis after the coup to maintain a strike capability in the area should one be necessary. Although their sortie rate dropped after the de-escalation of tensions between ICE member nations and Trotskytopia, two fighters saw limited action during a last-ditch airstrike to eliminate a large number of Yandian rebels ambushing a convoy consisting of several Emmerian diplomats and Leo Transinsky, the self-proclaimed leader of Trotskytopia. Although considered "danger close", the airstrike was successful in drastically reducing the resistance facing the Emmerian body guards and Trotskytopian soldiers, who were later relieved by a Trotskytopian armored battalion.

The ensuing nuclear threat in Trotskytopia prompted the subsequent use of F-29 fighters to perform airstrikes on further rebel positions in Trotskytopia as U.R. special operations forces aided a newly formed Trotskytopian special forces branch to hunt down the nuclear terrorists.

F-29B and C fighters were then used as part of a multinational naval task force to enforce a no-fly zone over the Dominion of Bodobol Minor to prevent a conflict between both Bodobol Minor and the Empire of Myrten. The no-fly zone, which resulted in a total of over 10,000 sorties by F-29 Warriors, was successful in de-escalating the conflict and deterring both nations from entering a nuclear war.

A number of F-29A, F-29B, and F-29C fighters were deployed to the Territory of Kasavia, a Emmerian unincorporated unorganized territory on the Continent of Verktha. They are reportedly part of the ongoing Invasion of Kiska, a joint ICE invasion of the Old Beringian colony of Kiska along the southern border of Kasavia.

F-29A CTOL

The F-29A is the conventional takeoff and landing (CTOL) version of the aircraft, built primarily for the U.R. Air Force. It is, by far, the most conventional version of the aircraft, with a procurement cost of USD $112.3 million and a weapon systems cost of cR 132.4 million. The F-29A is the fastest, lightest, and most agile variant of the F-29 series, as it is designed for conventional use. The U.R. Air Force operates 1,623 of these aircraft.

The largest operator of the F-29A is the Onekawa-Nukanor Air Force (ONAF), which maintains and operates 9,360 F-29A fighters, over 6,000 of which were produced locally. These fighters provide a significant amount of ONAF's overall tactical air power.

F-29B STOVL

The F-29B STOVL is a short-takeoff, vertical-landing version of the aircraft, designed to operate from amphibious assault ships, carriers without catapult launch systems, and makeshift forward operation bases (FOB) off of unimproved surfaces. The STOVL version uses its own twin engine design, the UNADS F152-UNA, that pivots downwards up to a full 90° and couples with a lift fan behind the cockpit to lift the aircraft. This can allow the aircraft to perform extremely short or even completely vertical takeoffs (although vertical takeoffs are regarded as unnecessary and inefficient) and very short, often vertical, landings.

Due to the complexity of the lift systems, this version of the aircraft is by far the most expensive, with a flyaway cost of USD $138.4 million. It does not feature its own inbuilt gun pod for a cannon; when such a weapon is required, an external gun pod is fitted in between the ordnance bays below the aircraft. The F-29B is the slowest, least agile variant of the F-29, although still considered supermaneuverable, and has the least range and payload capacity.

The F-29B is primarily built for the U.R. Marine Corps, which operates 250 F-29B fighters to replace all legacy F/A-18C/D and AV-8B Harrier fighter jets. The aircraft's cost and perceived issues regarding its relatively experimental lift fan have led the URMC to fill the rest of the URMC's tactical fighter jet requirements with 90 F-29C fighters, which operate from U.R. Navy aircraft carriers.

F-29C EMLAR

The F-29C EMLAR is the electromagnetic launch but arrested recovery (EMLAR) variant of the F-29, designed to operate from aircraft carriers equipped with either electromagnetic or traditional steam catapult systems (although optimized for electromagnetic catapults, hence its name). It features larger wings with folding wingtip sections for superior lift and carrier storage, larger wing and tail control surfaces for low-speed control, stronger landing gear for the stresses of carrier landings (including twin-wheel nose gear), a reinforced undercarriage, and a tailhook for carrier-borne arrestor cables. The larger wing area results in decreased landing speed and superior range and payload. The procurement cost for a single F-29B is about USD $135.5 million.

Advantages to using steam or electromagnetic catapults rather than solely relying on non-catapult STOVL fighters are clear. The use of catapults expedites carrier operations, leading to a superior operational tempo for flight sorties. Catapults also control the acceleration of the aircraft (especially electromagnetic catapults) to place less stress on the airframe, extending the lifespan of the airframe. The F-29C is slower and less agile than the F-29A, although it is superior in both respects to the F-29B. Due to its lower wing-loading (due to a longer wingspan), the F-29C is the most maneuverable and features the highest payload capacity, as well as the longest range due to larger internal fuel carriage.

The U.R. Navy is the primary buyer of the F-29C, operating a total of 480 fighters. Due to the Marine Corps's concerns regarding the price of the F-29B, the URMC also operates 90 F-29C EMLAR variants for use with U.R. Navy aircraft carriers.

In order to accommodate its icy runways, Finorskia employs a special version of the F-29 with an integrated drag chute to enhance deceleration in slippery conditions. The FF-29 is available in all variants and maintains most of its parts commonality with other versions of the F-29.

The purchasing cost is the total systems cost, which includes the flyaway cost (cost required to manufacture the aircraft), its associated training costs, its inherent performance-based logistics costs, and the cost of each individual JACES system. This ensures that aircraft that are sold are constantly covered by the manufacturer, who will replace all damaged parts according to the F-29's sustainability concept. Exports of this aircraft are considered Restricted Level 2, meaning all purchases are subject to extensive review prior to acceptance by the United Republic Department of Defense. This is to comply with United Republic military export restrictions, and to ensure that our products do not fall into the wrong hands. Both we and the federal government of the United Republic have the right to deny any order without reason, although we generally prefer to avoid exercising this right.
  • Domestic Manufacturing License: USD $2 trillion per variant or USD $5 trillion for all variants
Weapon systems
Although compatible with legacy weapon systems, a number of Emmerian weapons were designed for use with the F-29; all of them are fully compatible with other fighter jets. These weapons may be purchased independently for use with any fighter if the customer desires. All weapons below, unless otherwise specified, are subject to the same Level 2 export restriction as the F-29.
    Air to air missilesAir to space missilesCombined DPR on entire Joint Weapons Program (except for munitions for which DPR is unavailable): $150 billion

Contract for Use

OOC Rules
  1. You may not godmod with the fighter. If you're confused about something, ask me or post it in the Military Realism Consultation thread.
  2. If you have a suggestion to add on to the fighter, please notify me and I may consider it.
  3. Don't worry about calculations; although they're extremely helpful, they aren't required as I will perform the calculations necessary.
    1. If I made a mistake on the calculations and you point it out, I'll give you a complimentary discount on the purchase.
  4. You may not edit, modify, or copy any of the facets of the F-29 without permission. A lot of its technologies are based on the F-35 JSF; as such, if it's not my own creation, you're free to use it.
  5. The fighter may be used for MT or early PMT; it'll be in active service in my nation up until around 2030, so with minor upgrades it may be used in RPs taking place anywhere from now until 2030-2050 (some nations are slow to retire their fighters).
Contract for Use
  1. The F-29 Warrior may not be resold to a third party organization under any circumstances. If the nation who purchased it wishes to replace it, UNADS is able to give them a 75% refund on the fighters for used aircraft.
  2. All purchases are redirected to and subject to review by the U.R. Defense Security Assistance Agency's Foreign Military Sales Division (FMSD), the U.R. agency responsible for foreign military sales. UNADS and the DSAA have the right to deny sales to any nation with or without reason.
  3. Any nations with oppressive civil rights ratings will automatically be denied in accordance with the Castilla Doctrine. Domestic manufacturing licenses will be strictly limited.
  4. Any custom additions to the fighter (such as indigenous avionics, electronics, etc.) may be requested from UNADS.
  5. Domestic Manufacturing Licenses may be requested for the prices listed above, in which case specialist staff of UNADS and other companies responsible for manufacturing the parts for the F-29 would be dispatched to oversee the production process to ensure a high level of quality and technological expertise as well as preventing classified information regarding the design from falling into the wrong hands. Overall this will ensure a high level of quality typical of Emmerian defense matériel.

[OOC: If you use this fighter in an RP, I'd like you to send me a link to the RP. I want to see how it's used in RPs and I'd like to establish a short Operational History section on this thread.]

Please present any orders to the main storefront and refrain from posting in this thread. Thank you.

Nathan Amlan, Director of Armarzin Modernization
Subject: Armarzian Military Modernization



In an effort to modernize the Armarzian military and consolidate the number of companies providing for the Armarzian military, the Armarzian Modernization project was established. After thorough investigation of your products in foreign nations and recorded conflicts, UNADS has proven itself to be reliable company committed to both quality and efficiency. Due to these finding, it has been decided that the New Armarzian military should adopt a number of military platform produce by your company to replace current Armarzian platforms in similar roles. We would like to purchase the domestic production rights of the following platforms:

-F-36C Super Viper


And a number of individual platforms for test trials:

-x5 F-36A Super Viper
-x5 F-36B STOVL Super Viper


The total for the purchase of the DPRs and the individual units is $1,001,103,000,000. New Armarzia wishes to have the best equipment to protect the homeland and your company seems to provide quality-aircraft. New Armarzia is in dire need of a more modernized carrier-based so we believe the DPR of the F-36C serves the best interest of the defense of New Armarzia. However, after testing the F-36A and F-36B variants I am sure that I will be contacting your company in the future about purchasing domestic production rights for those variants as well.

An Official Message from the Erucian Department of Defense



To: James M. Lyons, CEO of United Aerospace Defense Systems/ United Aerospace Defense Systems Representative
From: Minister of Defense Ronaldo Jensen, Erucian Department of Defense
Subject: Procurement of JDF



Dear Sir or Madam,

The Erucian Department of Defense is currently interested in the procurement of 5th Generation Multirole Fighter Aircraft, and has recently located the presence of the United Aerospace Defense Systems and the Joint Dominance Fighter. While we are not currently in great demand of a new aircraft (the Erucian Air Force, Navy and Marine Corps currently operates the F-35, while the EAF solely operates the F-23A Black Widow II and FB-22A Strike Raptor), the Department of the Air Force has shown keen interest with this project. Therefore, in the interest of keeping the Erucian Armed Forces up-to-date and flying the most current aircraft, the Erucian Department of Defense would like to make the following purchase.

-x4 F-36A CTOL Variants: Approx. $389.2 Million USD
-x4 F-36B STOVL Variants: Approx. $493.6 Million USD
-x4 F-36C EMLAR Variants: Approx. $482 Million USD

Total: Approx. $1.3648 Billion USD


The ordered aircraft shall be placed under the special care of the Erucian Special Joint Air Command, or ESJAC, and will be immediately evaluated in both peacetime simulations and actual warfare currently occurring in the nation of Adwest. If there are any flaws in our projected total amount of payment, please let us know and we shall correct it immediately.

We hope for a prosperous relationship.

-OFFICIAL INVOICE-


To: United Aerospace Defense Systems
From: Onekawa-Nukanor Ministry of Defence
Subject: Aircraft Acquisition
Encryption: Medium


The ONAF (Onekawa-Nukanor Air Force) is the primary aerial warfare component of the ONDF (Onekawa-Nukanor Defence Force). The purpose of the ONAF, since it's formation as a separate branch of the ONDF in 1912, is to ensure that Ngāti Onekawa-Nukanor retains dominance of the skies in any and all conflicts, a role in which it partly shares with the ONN (Onekawa-Nukanor Navy) carrier-based aircraft. The development of combat aircraft within the last twenty years has seen rapid strides in capability, efficiency and lethality in all areas of a combat aircrafts design. This rapid development in aerial warfare has required that changes need to be made in the way aerial forces operate in conflicts, and that many aircraft which served faithfully a mere ten years ago require replacement or will be annihilated by a superior, better equipped enemy. To this purpose, the ONAF is always prepared to introduce new aircraft in which they are expected to serve and meet the very high standards required by all equipment and personnel in the ONDF.

Multirole aircraft have always enjoyed a great deal of appreciation in the ONAF, being capable of destroying enemy forces in the sky and then, in the same mission, cripple an enemy's armoured column. With the development of air superiority aircraft such as the F-22A Raptor however, it quickly became clear the multirole aircraft in the 4-4.5 generation bracket would be unable to survive in hostile airspace against such foes, especially since 4-4.5 generation air superiority aircraft would be unable to survive, let alone mulatirole aircraft. In addition, the deployment of increasingly effective SAM weaponry, such as the S-400, have made the job of multirole aircraft and their crews, both in combat against aerial and ground forces, incredibly hazardous. Thus, the development and deployment of 5th generation multirole aircraft is of very high importance, especially against such threats that render older aircraft obsolete. The F-35 Lighting II was originally considered, in the early to mid-2000's a aircraft hat could perform that role. However, its lacklustre performance was considered to poor to meet ONAF standards. The F-36 Super Viper has, however, after an inital investigation period, been considered to be the best choice for the ONAF, with its unique blend of stealth, versatility, maneuverability and lethality considered to be amongst the finest in the world for its class. Because of this we wish to place an order, due to its size, we wish to inquire into a possible discount.

- F-36A CTOL Super Viper: 3,240
- F-36A CTOL Super Viper: DPR

Total Cost: $1,815,252,000,000

Subject: Armarzian Military Modernization



In an effort to modernize the Armarzian military and consolidate the number of companies providing for the Armarzian military, the Armarzian Modernization project was established. After thorough investigation of your products in foreign nations and recorded conflicts, UNADS has proven itself to be reliable company committed to both quality and efficiency. Due to these finding, it has been decided that the New Armarzian military should adopt a number of military platform produce by your company to replace current Armarzian platforms in similar roles. We would like to purchase the domestic production rights of the following platforms:

-F-36C Super Viper


And a number of individual platforms for test trials:

-x5 F-36A Super Viper
-x5 F-36B STOVL Super Viper


The total for the purchase of the DPRs and the individual units is $1,001,103,000,000. New Armarzia wishes to have the best equipment to protect the homeland and your company seems to provide quality-aircraft. New Armarzia is in dire need of a more modernized carrier-based so we believe the DPR of the F-36C serves the best interest of the defense of New Armarzia. However, after testing the F-36A and F-36B variants I am sure that I will be contacting your company in the future about purchasing domestic production rights for those variants as well.

From: Minister of Defense Ronaldo Jensen, Erucian Department of Defense
Subject: Procurement of JDF



Dear Sir or Madam,

The Erucian Department of Defense is currently interested in the procurement of 5th Generation Multirole Fighter Aircraft, and has recently located the presence of the United Aerospace Defense Systems and the Joint Dominance Fighter. While we are not currently in great demand of a new aircraft (the Erucian Air Force, Navy and Marine Corps currently operates the F-35, while the EAF solely operates the F-23A Black Widow II and FB-22A Strike Raptor), the Department of the Air Force has shown keen interest with this project. Therefore, in the interest of keeping the Erucian Armed Forces up-to-date and flying the most current aircraft, the Erucian Department of Defense would like to make the following purchase.

-x4 F-36A CTOL Variants: Approx. $389.2 Million USD
-x4 F-36B STOVL Variants: Approx. $493.6 Million USD
-x4 F-36C EMLAR Variants: Approx. $482 Million USD

Total: Approx. $1.3648 Billion USD


The ordered aircraft shall be placed under the special care of the Erucian Special Joint Air Command, or ESJAC, and will be immediately evaluated in both peacetime simulations and actual warfare currently occurring in the nation of Adwest. If there are any flaws in our projected total amount of payment, please let us know and we shall correct it immediately.

We hope for a prosperous relationship.

-OFFICIAL INVOICE-

From: Onekawa-Nukanor Ministry of Defence
Subject: Aircraft Acquisition
Encryption: Medium


The ONAF (Onekawa-Nukanor Air Force) is the primary aerial warfare component of the ONDF (Onekawa-Nukanor Defence Force). The purpose of the ONAF, since it's formation as a separate branch of the ONDF in 1912, is to ensure that Ngāti Onekawa-Nukanor retains dominance of the skies in any and all conflicts, a role in which it partly shares with the ONN (Onekawa-Nukanor Navy) carrier-based aircraft. The development of combat aircraft within the last twenty years has seen rapid strides in capability, efficiency and lethality in all areas of a combat aircrafts design. This rapid development in aerial warfare has required that changes need to be made in the way aerial forces operate in conflicts, and that many aircraft which served faithfully a mere ten years ago require replacement or will be annihilated by a superior, better equipped enemy. To this purpose, the ONAF is always prepared to introduce new aircraft in which they are expected to serve and meet the very high standards required by all equipment and personnel in the ONDF.

Multirole aircraft have always enjoyed a great deal of appreciation in the ONAF, being capable of destroying enemy forces in the sky and then, in the same mission, cripple an enemy's armoured column. With the development of air superiority aircraft such as the F-22A Raptor however, it quickly became clear the multirole aircraft in the 4-4.5 generation bracket would be unable to survive in hostile airspace against such foes, especially since 4-4.5 generation air superiority aircraft would be unable to survive, let alone mulatirole aircraft. In addition, the deployment of increasingly effective SAM weaponry, such as the S-400, have made the job of multirole aircraft and their crews, both in combat against aerial and ground forces, incredibly hazardous. Thus, the development and deployment of 5th generation multirole aircraft is of very high importance, especially against such threats that render older aircraft obsolete. The F-35 Lighting II was originally considered, in the early to mid-2000's a aircraft hat could perform that role. However, its lacklustre performance was considered to poor to meet ONAF standards. The F-36 Super Viper has, however, after an inital investigation period, been considered to be the best choice for the ONAF, with its unique blend of stealth, versatility, maneuverability and lethality considered to be amongst the finest in the world for its class. Because of this we wish to place an order, due to its size, we wish to inquire into a possible discount.

- F-36A CTOL Super Viper: 3,240
- F-36A CTOL Super Viper: DPR

Total Cost: $1,815,252,000,000

To whom this may concern,

The UNAAF (United Nations Alliance Air Force) would like to trial this aircraft to see if it will be used to replace the F-22 Raptor and F-35B Lightning II aircraft we already use, due to concerns that our newly created tech will make the maintenence cost fo said aircraft to high. Six of your aircraft should be enough, we just need the normal one (not VTOL or carrier-based varients). If our W&T R&D (Weapons and Tech Research and Development) Department can install our new equipment into even two of these jets without adverse reactions then we will hold it as a succes and shall deploy them to the front lines in our colony on Verktha for defenceive purposes. If you want I can send you the details and plans of the tech we wish to test with it so you can do your own testing.

The Joint Weapons Program was a multinational development program designed to produce a number of advanced and capable weapon systems for the Joint Dominance Fighter. The program eventually resulted in a number of advanced weapons that, while tailor-made for the JDF, were still compatible with upgraded legacy aircraft.

During the early stages of development of the F-29 it was determined that the capability difference of fifth-generation fighters as compared to 4- and 4.5-generation aircraft warranted the development of new weapon systems to replace a number of legacy weapons. The Joint Weapons Program was intended to establish a series of armaments specifically for the Joint Dominance Fighter that took advantage of the aircraft's own advanced sensory systems and technologies while minimizing its shortcomings, such as the need to pack weapons into the internal bays.

During the mid-1990s when the project became multinational, other nations became involved in the program. Several nations were already involved in foreign weapons programs whose results were intended for use with the JDF; however, a few nations were intent on remaining part of the JWP program to develop a series of advanced weapon systems. The program's intention was to attempt to integrate new and upcoming weapon systems into the F-29, and designing modified versions of the weapons that were more optimized for its type of aircraft. As such, the program did not technically begin with development of definitive results until 2009, well after the F-29's introduction into various air forces. However, its results produced a number of weapons specifically for 4.5 and 5 generation fighter aircraft that were designed to take advantage of the latest technologies. These weapons were improved versions of the AIM-9X (AIM-11X), AIM-120 (AIM-145), and other weapons, as well as specific weapons that were designed from scratch based on requirements.

Image
AIM-11X Python XSRM (short-range)
  • Type: Short-range air-to-air missile
  • Place of Origin: Image United Republic
  • Production
    • Manufacturer: Rayzero Aerospace
    • Unit cost: USD $90,000
    • Produced: 2010
  • Specifications
    • Weight: 95 kg
    • Length: 3 m
    • Warhead: 9.4 kg annular blast frag
    • Engine: solid fuel rocket
    • Operational range: 300 m to 42 km
    • Speed: Mach 2.5
    • Guidance: imaging infrared focal plane array (FPA); inertial mid-course correction datalink; LOBL/LOAL capable
    • Control: Clipped forward canards, thrust vectoring
    • Launch platform: Aircraft, helicopter gun ships
  • Description: The AIM-11X Python XSRM (Advanced Short-Range Missile) is a next-generation short-range air-to-air compressed-carriage missile designed for use by fighter aircraft. The missile's rollerons are completely clipped and its canards reduced in size, and it relies extensively on thrust vectoring for its incredible agility. This allows the missile to perform extreme maneuvers in close-range dogfighting environments. Its lock-on-after-launch (LOAL) capability allows it to be used by stealth fighters employing the missile in internal ordnance bays, as they may launch the missile before its seeker head has locked onto a target; this is because in order for the seeker to achieve lock, the missile must be deployed outside the internal bays, thus compromising the aircraft's stealth. An imaging infrared focal plane array guidance system improves the missile's resistance to countermeasures and allows it to more accurately pursue targets. The missile's range is improved from previous systems due to its improved efficiency. It differs from the AIM-9X in that it has increased range, no rollerons (although they may be attached in a folding-fin configuration), and increased high off-boresight capability.

AIM-145C Medusa XMRM (medium- to long-range)
  • Type: Medium-range air-to-air missile
  • Place of Origin: Image United Republic
  • Production
    • Manufacturer: Rayzero Aerospace
    • Unit cost: USD $700,000
    • Produced: 2011
  • Specifications
    • Weight: 155 kg
    • Length: 3.7 m
    • Warhead: 20.41 kg high explosive blast-fragmentation
    • Engine: liquid fuel ramjet
    • Operational range: 200 km
    • Speed: Mach 4.2
    • Guidance: Inertial mid-course correction datalink, terminal active radar
    • Control: Front wings, rollerons, thrust vectoring for terminal approach
    • Launch platform: Fighter jets
  • Description: The AIM-145C Medusa XMRM (Advanced Medium-Range Missile) is a medium-to-long-range air-to-air compressed-carriage missile system designed to replace the AIM-120 AMRAAM in U.R. service. Although it features similar control surfaces to the previous AMRAAM, these surfaces are significantly reduced in size as compared to the AIM-120D (whose control surfaces were already small); the missile compensates using thrust vectoring to achieve superior agility in a terminal approach. The missile is designed to hit targets at longer ranges than the AIM-11X, employing a liquid fuel powered ramjet rather than a traditional rocket engine. It is one of the most common missiles mounted on aircraft for the air superiority role, due to its long range and overall kill probability at such range. It features an 11% increase in range over the previous AMRAAM, in particular due to its unique engine. The front wings and rollerons, during compressed carriage, are folded in order to increase space efficiency.

AIM-160 Golden Eagle XLRM (long-range)
  • Type: Long/extended-range air-to-air missile
  • Place of Origin: Image United Republic
  • Production
    • Manufacturer: Rayzero Aerospace
    • Unit cost: USD $1,000,000
    • Produced: 2012
  • Specifications
    • Weight: 520 kg
    • Length: 4 m
    • Warhead: 50 kg high explosive blast-fragmentation
    • Engine: liquid fuel ramjet; solid fuel rocket
    • Operational range: 400 km
    • Speed: Mach 4.5-5
    • Guidance: Inertial mid-course correction datalink, semi-active radar; terminal active radar
    • Control: Folding front wings, rollerons, canards, thrust vectoring for terminal approach
    • Launch platform: Fighter jets
  • Description: The AIM-160 Golden Eagle XLRM (Advanced Long-Range Missile) is an extended long-range air-to-air missile system designed for the elimination of extremely long-ranged targets. The AIM-160 is a dual stage missile that forms the second phase of the two-part plan to replace the AIM-120 in U.R. service. The first stage features a liquid fuel ramjet to accelerate the missile away from the aircraft out to approximately 200 km, from where the second solid fuel rocket stage powers the missile at extremely high speeds to its target. Although the missile features greater range than that which contemporary radars (such as that on the F-29) generally posses, it is designed to strike larger targets (such as AEW planes, bombers, and long-range interceptors) which are more visible on radar from long ranges and it extensively uses the networked datalinks between the F-29 and various AEW aircraft. The missile's success often relies on the use of extremely-long-ranged radars from dedicated AEW aircraft. Although the missile performs rather poorly at close range, its long-range capabilities coupled with terminal active radar homing makes it a deadly weapon for targets up to roughly 400 km away from the launch platform. To increase the probability for a kill, the missile features a large 50 kg high explosive warhead that, if missing its target, explodes in close proximity to deal significant damage. The missile is essentially a radically modernized interpretation of the AIM-54 BVRAAM.

ASM-140 XASM (anti-satellite)
  • Type: Air-launched anti-satellite missile
  • Place of Origin: Image United Republic
  • Production
    • Manufacturer: Rayzero Aerospace
    • Unit cost: USD $350,000,000
    • Produced: 2011
  • Specifications
    • Weight: 1,052 kg
    • Length: 4.8 m
    • Warhead: Kinetic energy
    • Engine: solid fuel rocket (first stage); solid fuel rocket (second stage); miniature homing vehicle (third stage)
    • Operational range: 700 km
    • Speed: Mach 20+
    • Guidance: Imaging infrared focal plane array (FPA)
    • Control: Front wings, rollerons, canards, thrust vectoring; solid rocket motors for terminal approach
    • Launch platform: Fighter jets
  • Description: The ASM-140 XASM (Advanced Anti-Satellite Missile) is an air-launched anti-satellite missile designed to replace the ASM-135 ASAT in U.R. service with a cheaper, smaller, and more effective system using modernized technologies and systems. The ASM-140 costs only $350 million, an improvement to the expected $500 million and reality $5.3 billion cost of the ASM-135. The ASM-140 provides the United Republic with an inherent anti-satellite capability in its fighters not seen since the ASM-135 program. It makes use of three complex stages after high-altitude supersonic climb launch to achieve its goal of striking orbital satellites, then using a kinetic projectile warhead to destroy the satellite. Although too large to fit into the internal bays of the aircraft, the missile can be mounted externally albeit with a significantly detrimental effect to the F-29's stealthy profile.

An Official Message from the Erucian Department of Defense



To: James M. Lyons, CEO of United Aerospace Defense Systems
From: Minister of Defense Ronaldo Jensen, Erucian Department of Defense
Subject: Procurement of more JDF's and DPR



Dear Sir,

With recent testing of the CTOL, SVTOL and EMLAR variants of the F-36 Super Viper in simulated combat, real aerial combat with OPFOR aircraft and numerous other tests about the JDF's capabilities, the Erucian Department of Defense has received several rather joyful letters from military commanders within the Erucian Air Force, Marine Corps Aviation and Naval Aviation. Your company may be rather glad to know that the UNADS F-36 Super Viper has been officially declared a "primary fighter aircraft and essential piece of Erucian Military Aviation." Therefore, in the light of authorization from the President, Congress and the Joint Chiefs, the Erucian Department of Defense wishes to make the following order.

-x300 F-36A CTOL Variants: $29.28 Billion USD
-x120 F-36B SVTOL Variants: $14.808 Billion USD
-x240 F-36C EMLAR Variants: $28.92 Billion USD
-Domestic Production Rights to the F-36A, B and C Variants: $4 Trillion USD

Total: Approx. $4.72 Trillion USD

We immediately apologize for any mistakes done in financing our order, and will correct the mistake as soon as possible. Currently, our Air Force wishes to be the primary operator of the F-36 Super Viper, as the Navy and Marine Corps still wish to primarily operate the F-35.

We hope for the continuation of our prosperous relationship.

Subject: Test success

We would like to advise you that the tests of the Interagrated Targeting System was a success. All the F-36s we purchoused have been upgraded with this technology, and would like permission to build all varients the F-36 Super Viper in our factories and install those upgrades. We would also like to propose that we both research in improving the ITS, and making it fighter capable so we can provide more people with this upgrade. We gave the specs to the United Republic, which we assume you are a company in. We hope they have provided you with said specs so you can install it.

To whom it may concern or their representative(s) otherwise,

UNADS considers it an essential duty to serve military forces around the world by providing them with quality solutions to aid them in defending their people. However, we do realize that many forces desire make use of our equipment for committing unlawful acts which we would consider illegal. This is why we must extensively review all of our orders to confirm that the buyer is a worthy organization.

After such review by the federal government of the United Republic of Virana, your order of (50) F-36A CTOL, (25) F-36B STOVL, and (20) F-36C EMLAR has unfortunately been denied by various officials of the United Republic Department of Defense responsible for exported military equipment.

We understand that your nation was approached by UNADS sales representatives regarding the export of the F-36 Super Viper. However, such offers are arbitrary to those officials and are not subject to review through the United Republic's export restrictions, which are in place only when a piece of military equipment is being exported to another nation. To put in simpler terms, exporting the fighter to your military was something UNADS requested but was denied by the federal government, which cited several concerns. As a company that is inherently and proudly Viranian, we are not in a position to dispute the decision and are sorry to inform you that we support the Department of Defense's denial for export.

One of the elements of concern for the federal government of the United Republic was the lack of credibility in the Ovian Empire, which would subsequently be operating one of the premier fighters in the world. The Ovian Empire has not yet established itself as a nation that can be trusted with such a weapon. The move would be politically devastating to the United Republic and to UNADS as well, especially due to the blatant fact that world organizations consider the Ovian Empire to be a corrupt totalitarian dictatorship and supplying them would significantly hamper our reputation of devotion to defending human rights.

High-level UNADS sales officials were also disappointed in the fact that the Ovian Empire then went on to attempt to pay us with decades-old, obsolete aircraft (whose airframes are surprisingly still in tact) which are completely out of service in the United Republic and in most militaries around the world. We would like to state that the F-5E (USD $2.1 million) and F-4E (USD $2.4 million), both of which are third-generation fighter jets, are better off sold for scrap, as with most outdated aircraft. The Mirage 2000D (>USD $23 million) and F/A-18 Hornet (USD $29 million), both fourth-generation fighters, are significantly more appealing, although still both classes of fighters are considered obsolete by the United Republic which operates 4.5 and 5th generation fighter aircraft (such as the F-36, F-15SE, F/A-18E/F Super Hornet, and F-16V). The issue is that you would be paying UNADS (not the U.R.; we are the ones selling it, as a publicly-owned firm), and we have little use for payment in material value that has no subsequent use or resale value, especially if they have been hopelessly outclassed by more advanced products in the world—including those we manufacture ourselves.

In addition, we doubt that a nation currently still operating the F-4E and F-5E has the capability or budget to radically modernize its air force to accommodate the F-36. Such accommodations would include much more advanced training and more efficient maintenance facilities to successfully operate the fifth-generation fighter. The fighter also provides a perfect way of providing battlespace management using its advanced sensors and linking with allied aircraft to aid them in performing their tasks, but most older aircraft are incompatible with modern datalinks. We understand the desire to upgrade these to modernize your forces, although you would require a much more extensive and costly modernization program to operate the F-36 than if you adopted other modern aircraft. We are not sure you are willing to commit to such a long-term plan, for which your nation would be on its own.

It is with great regret that we were forced to deny your military the option to defend itself using the F-36 Super Viper. We hope you understand many of our concerns. This decision is unlikely to be overturned in the near future; however, should you wish to appeal the decision, please direct your concerns to the federal government of the United Republic.

Regards,
James M. Lyons
CEO, United Aerospace Defense Systems




You weren't denied because of personal reasons, so don't sweat it.

Truth is that you're a new player who hasn't proven himself to be very knowledgeable yet of how NS works. The goal of restricting the aircraft and denying specific nations is to keep godmodders and other new players that don't know much at all from buying it and godmodding with it in their RPs. I don't want people coming to me and saying "you gave that kind of tech to THAT GUY" citing that "that guy" is using the tech to godmod in his/her RP.

So you have to understand that I limit the sale of some stuff from newer players in order to prevent that from happening. Some people who sell military gear specifically make a slightly less-capable aircraft that they are more willing to sell to a new player (I am planning on doing that someday).

Not all new players are denied, though. I look at some of their RPs, I look at how their message was put. Generally I'm pretty lenient in these respects but I try to focus on the quality of their work rather than how long they've been a nation. Some new players come in and make their orders sounding like professional diplomats, and their RPs look like they've been playing for years. With most, however, it's really easy to tell they're new without even looking at the date their nation was created. Their way of speaking (in terms of language and sometimes even how many words they misspell per sentence, and also sometimes how bad they are at BBCode) often gives it away too.

I fully understand that you're disappointed with this denial, especially because I'm the one who offered to sell it to you. However, I don't pay attention to who I'm offering it to; if they're looking for the equipment, I'll offer it. But that doesn't mean I'll be willing to sell it to them until I've analyzed their work. And after analyzing your work, I regret to inform you that I won't be selling you the F-36. Sorry.

Don't take this as an insult or a personal attack. I'm not degrading you, I'm not making fun of you, I'm not doing any of that kind of stuff. I'm simply informing you that you've got a lot of work to do to get better at RPing before I decide that it's time to give it to you. And most people start off like that, so don't worry, you'll get better with time. Take this as a more senior player telling a younger player that he just needs to keep on improving.

Good morning.

After reading specifications, operational history and performance of the F-36 Super Viper JDF, we are interested in it as a potential low-cost alternative to the LY910, which has been reduced in service due to its staggering costs. As such I have been authorised to make a purchase of x36 such fighters in twelve sets per variant at a total cost of $4.0944 billion USD.

If possible we would like the deliveries to be made by sea to Portsdown Harbor for the attention of the Master Quartermaster of the Portsdown Garrison Reserve Depot (PoGARD) in a suitable condition for travel by rail, as the aircraft will be taken to the Bexhill Salt Flats Airbase for testing. We would also like to inquire if we could have engineers and, if possible, a pilot arrive at Bexhill to oversee testing and offer advice and training aid to members of the Air Force and Navy that'll be testing the fighters for maintenance capabilities and flight performance. Any members you would be able to send will be fully compensated for travel, stay and food expenses and will be paid for their services.

We hope to hear from you soon,

Yours.

To the esteemed Mr. Adjunta Tungsten or his representatives otherwise,

The United Republic would like to express its gratitude that a domestic firm's product has garnered interest on the international stage. As a result of the recent arms export act, all foreign military sales are to be conducted under the oversight of the Defense Security Assistance Agency (DSAA), the defense agency responsible for financial and technical assistance and transfer of defense matériel; DSAA officially acts as an intermediary between foreign nations and Emmerian defense firms. Emmerian foreign military sales are founded on the tradition of cooperation between the United Republic and other sovereign nations with similar values and interests in order to meet common defense goals. As such, we must perform an extensive review of each request in order to ensure that Emmerian companies are not manufacturing high-quality weapons and technology to be used by our enemies.

After such a review by various officials of the United Republic of Emmeria, your order of (12) F-36A CTOL, (12) F-36B STOVL, and (12) F-36C EMLAR for testing and evaluation purposes has been approved by the DSAA and various officials of UNADS. The order totals $3.89 billion United Standard dollars after the application of a 5% Pardes Elion Regional Discount. The DSAA will ensure that the logistics for the order are properly organized according to request. In addition, UNADS has agreed to dispatch a team consisting of various flight engineers, training officials, and test pilots to oversee the initial testing and training phases as per your request. We sincerely hope that our product suits your needs and that you are fully satisfied with its performance, and we wish to bid you good luck in your endeavors to improve your armed forces.

Construction for your order will commence immediately in one of our manufacturing plants in the United Republic, and it will be delivered as soon as the order is completed. Please contact us with any requests, inquiries, and/or questions you may have.

Thank you for choosing Emmerian. We hope to work with you again in the near future.

To whom it may concern,

The Nation of Snabagag has one moral objective above all in terms of diplomatic relations and that is to fix problems by rational means. However, not all nations agree with this simple prospect. Some nations have interest in damaging and ravaging the united nations of Snabagag.

The government of Snabagag in cooperation with EADOS believes that national defense is something vital to the life of a blooming nation like Snabagag and after rigorous debate, we have concluded that United Aerospace Defense systems can provide Snabagag with the tools for the job.

Therefore, on behalf of the Government of Snabagag and the EADOS, I hereby request the following purchases:
64x F-36B STOVL
64x F36A CTOL
32x F36C EMLAR

Yours sincerely

Continental Navy Contract [UADS]

Postby Taurenor » Mon Sep 24, 2012 10:29 pm

Continental Navy Statement
[Translation: Bahasa Taurenor to Aurenorian English]


Honoured representative,

My name is Raschid Alharoun, and it is in my capacity to represent the Freemasons' Naval Association of the Taurenori Continent with the writing of this letter, directed to the international sales and exportation division of your represented business: United Aerospace Defense Systems.

I would like to formally offer my utmost veneration and warm regard on behalf of the one hundred and twenty-seventh Grand Master James Pritchard, for the attentiveness of correspondence of your represented company pertaining to this missive, reciprocally written to your desk, and to the desks of your Board Directors.

My secretaries have recently noted your Global Economics & Trade index-listed storefront, and delivered the aforementioned available information for I to fully consider. It was then that the Kingdom of Belfras and the nation of Aquitayne - for more than thrice a generation's time maintaining their friendly relations with the Association - notified the Continental Navy of the apparent quality of your exported designs.

The Continental Navy is the oldest, and only existing military branch of the Freemasons' Association; historically instituted from a motley collection of various warships during the height of the late 19th century's revolution. As the only standing, professionally-led military force of the Association, the Continental Navy and its oceanic fleets have always provided the Taurenori continent with its first echelon line of defence in the face of possible foreign threats.

The reasoning behind why this letter has reached your desk today is, quite simply, due to the fact that the First Admiralty has decided to put forward a proposal of exportation contract with your represented business. Henceforth, in full accordance of the Freemasons' Grand Assembly's authority, and as verified by the Freemasons' Council of Foreign Relations, shall I - Grand Mason Raschid Alharoun, representing in full the Continental Navy - lodge my request upon the importation of the following;

  • 58000x UNADS F-35C 'Super Viper' EMLAR: US$6,989,000,000,000.00
  • Grand total: US$6,989,000,000,000.00
At the surmounting full monetary payment requirement of six trillion, nine hundred and eighty-nine billion in Universal Standard Dollars by foreign exchange standardisation and international denomination.
