Order has been confirmed, due to the small ammount fo aircraft to be delivered, we don't deem neccesary to pay on stages, so the full payment has been transfered to the forementioned account at EngolBanc.
It's been a pleasure to do business with you.

For further requests please send direct telegrams to our office.

The LIRAT (Light Recon/Anti-Tank) Aircraft

Primary Mission

Customers have had nothing but rave reviews for performance of the LIRCAS in operations, but one area where it has been reported to fall short is in armor interdiction. LIRCAS survivability in an attack on a well AA-defended armor column, as inadvisable as that action is to begin with, is quite low. This has spurred on SDS to develop the LIRAT variant. The LIRAT is more armored to withstand groundfire and the modular mounts are modified to carry heavier loads in order to hit enemy armor fast and hard.
A light titanium alloy skin covers the wings, fuselage and tail for a durable armor that can deflect most ground fire and air to air fire.

Using the same light airframe as the LIRCAS, the LIRAT is modified to hold R-12 rocket pods, Rafutar air to surface missiles, mine dispensing munitions, or other customized modular systems on each wing and a larger caliber 30mm cannon mounted in the nose. While limited in ammo carrying capability, the LIRAT can perform quick strikes and possibly neutralize up to 4-5 tanks or armored vehicles in one pass. When in larger formations, a mass flight of LIRATs can enact a large amount of devastation on an enemy armored front, quite possibly stopping it cold in conjunction with other support forces.

Due to the amount of ordnance carried at full load and extra armoring, the LIRAT tends to operate at considerably slower average speeds than its sister LIRCAS.
This does enable it, however, to make a more focused pass, but the downside is that it opens the LIRAT up to more ground fire.

The LIRAT is still the lightest, fastest, and most economical anti-armor option a force could have in its arsenal. It is much more compact and low maintenance than most traditional multi-role and ground attack fighters, but still built to get the job done.

Secondary Mission

Once ammo is expended, the LIRAT can operate in its original design capacity as a recon aircraft. Even with the anti-armor modifications, it is still able to pack a considerable amount of electronic scanning systems and optics.

Like its sister recon plane, the LIRCAS, the LIRAT is equipped with light sensor and passive electronic wavelength monitoring equipment, as well as high resolution cameras that work over several spectrums, including infrared, thermal imaging and can operate day or night. Data is transmitted almost instantly in constant digital encrypted bursts to command and/or control centers far removed from hazard.

I'd like to remind applicants that they need to write an IC letter, ideally like that of Terre des Gaules, but at the very least, like New-Lusitania's post, which just makes standards. This is an IC thread that shoots for some semblance of realism. IC requests for tender to a military defense contractor do not just come shouting out of the ether, non-attributable to any military or government agency and without any named official as a contact. Please try to do better.

In the meantime, Advit and Awesome Imperium will be ignored until edits are enacted.

Additionally, Awesome Imperium, those products you listed belong to Riysa's Defense contractors to sell, not Schwyz Defense Systems, even though they use SDS parts. Maybe one day I will have the rights to sell them, granted by Riysa, but until then, I can't help you there. Sorry, bruh.

May I ask the stock for this Company?

Advit and Awesome Imperium: At this time, I have verbal permission to sell Riysa's military products on this storefront, but not a NS post, even though they may utilize SDS parts. I'm working to change that, and expect to sell some QAR-ISA (Riysian products) soon. Please submit orders with IC letters the next time you attempt to patronize this storefront, as stated in the OP, otherwise I will ignore your orders.

Earth Allies: See above about IC letters. Please submit one with inquiries and requests. This is an IC thread. There are currently no shares available of this company. The Neu Engollian government will not allow SDS to go public.

HISTORIC PARTNERSHIP NOTHING NEW FOR SDS


By Rosen “Ross” Reffet

SCHWARTZGARTEN, GRISBENDEN, NEU ENGOLLON

At a press conference today in Schwartzgarten, Martin Trembecht, founder and CEO of Schwyz Defense Systems (Schwyz Deferung Systemas), broke the news that his company, along with NEDI, would be working with Blackstone Aviation of Port Ember on a joint project to develop a new line of helicopters for the Neu Engollian and Port Emberian militaries.

Trembecht stated:
“While, we have had joint projects in the past with many international companies that have worked with us to create some of our signature products, this is a major step in a new direction, as it will open up a whole new line of products, in an area that is not as oversaturated as was once thought.

I have always hesitated to develop something like a heavy armored, tracked vehicle, or next generation fighter aircraft, because the market is simply oversaturated with solid, quality models of such key pieces of military hardware. I thought the same was true of military attack and utility rotorcraft, but upon further research, we were wrong. There are just not a lot of quality options out there in the defense industry and we aim to change that with this new line.”

Along with Trembecht, also in attendance at the press conference were the Neu Engollian Minister of Defense, Marshal Jacques Fernand; NEDI (Neu Engollian Defense Industries) President Yves D’artolli; CEO & President of Blackstone Aviation Pty Ltd., Varrick Blackstone; and Marshal Fernand’s counterpart in Port Ember, Defense Minister Jan Breytenbach. All stood to make their own statements about the agreement.

Minister-Marshal Fernand, who announced earlier this year that he would be retiring at the end of the year, had this to say about the project:
“This will put Neu Engollon further along in our goal to strengthen our military by relying on quality defense suppliers closer to home, if not entirely domestic. We have an aging wing of rotorcraft from far overseas that are quite expensive to obtain parts to maintain, with no domestic source for parts and updated expertise. This new joint project will close that gap for both our nations…”

The Neu Engollian Defense Air Force currently relies on the UH-1Z Vipers for gunships and V-22 Ospreys as VTOL transports/ground support from a North American supplier (re-designated as the NEH-1Z Viper and NEV-22, respectively) and AS332 Super Pumas from Europe as the main utility and transport helo, re-designated as the NEH-332 Super Puma.

“Furthermore, this will strengthen our bond with our friends in Port Ember, as three of our premier defense suppliers work together to create a line of rotorcraft that will meet the needs of missions much farther into the 21st Century.”

Trembecht, D’artolli, and Blackstone all commented on what each company was bringing to the project, with NEDI developing the armoring and some ordnance, SDS providing much of the electronic systems, and Blackstone providing a lot of the mechanical, and hydraulic systems, as well as the airframes.

Blackstone revealed the prototype plans with basic schematics shown on a nearby screen:
“There will be four different series of airframes in the project, in order to serve all the rotorcraft needs of both militaries, with three of the airframes having lots of practical use for the civilian sector, excepting the BASD-1 gunship airframe, which is only applicable to the military sector, of course. The gunships will have variants depending on climate operational needs, while there will be transport, utility, naval/ASW, and a ground support variant in the BASD-2 series. The BASD-3 series will be a very large frame, capable of heavy lifting, and bulk transporting, with variants for mobile headquarters, and medical/mobile hospital models. The BASD-4 series will be small compact airframes, suitable for recon, rescue, and other civilian and military needs.”

Trembecht added later,
“It should be noted that while we may be officially announcing the commencement of production of the prototypes soon, we have been in the planning and development stages with NEDI and Blackstone Aviation for some time now on this project, greenlighted by both governments.”

This confirmed rumors of the partnership which have surfaced over the last few months.

NEDI and Schwyz Defense Systems, the two primary domestic defense suppliers to the Neu Engollian military, have had a strong partnership for some time, with NEDI supplying its expertise in ordnance, rocketry, firing, targeting and missile guidance systems to SDS products like the LIRCAS/LIRAT planes, and Akua series UUVs.

Additionally, NEDI produces the AM-203 mobile mortar platform under license from QAR of Riysa, which partnered with SDS and NEDI on that project.
Similarly, NEDI will have a hand in producing the first domestic variants of the BASD helicopter series, with BA and SDS engineers on hand, while Blackstone handles those duties in conjunction with SDS engineer teams in Port Ember.

Fernand elaborated on the Neu Engollon Defense Force’s plans to introduce the new helos.
Eventually, the NEH-1Z Vipers, NEV-22 Ospreys, and NEH-332 Super Pumas will be cannibalized for parts as they will no longer order more, phased out due to attrition or, least likely, sold off, as BASD helicopters enter full mass production after finishing testing stages.

Asked if and when the BASD series would be available for wider international sale beyond the two partnered nations, Trembecht fielded the question, remarking:
“Almost immediately after NEDF and PESF initial orders are fulfilled, however, both governments will have a heavy hand in selecting which clients will be allowed to purchase the new aircraft, especially the BASD-1 gunship series. As Marshal Fernand mentioned, this is all dependent on rigorous testing before we can fulfill orders.”

Most testing in the Confederacy occurs around Semnoz, at secure government facilities, with test flights mostly observed over the lower half of the country.

Another dual conference is expected to happen in the Gold Coast Borough of the Port Ember Megalopolis in the next few days, with many of the same officials in attendance.
[Ed: Due to security concerns, they won’t release this exact date and time out to the public.]

Kahrivstani Union - Department for Military Purchases

To: Sales Director Selma Kanderschmidt
From: Raul Tanokich, Purchasing Administrator of the Military
Subject: Purchase of LIRCAS and LIRAT Aircraft


Greetings Director Kanderschmidt. I am Administrator Raul Tanokich and I represent the Kahrivstani Union, the true government of Kahrivstan. First, I would like to congratulate your company on your partnership with Blackstone Aviation. The BASD Gunship series sounds quite revolutionary and I am excited to read about all of your other collaborative endeavors as they make the news. Now, to address my business, I believe that your reconnaissance aircraft could play a key role in our ongoing counter-insurgency operations and would like to place an order for the following eight units:

x1 (One) LIRCAS Aircraft (Standard recon package)

x5 (Five) LIRCAS Aircrafts w/ four additional armament pods
  • x1 (One) RAFUTAR ATS (Air To Surface) Missile Pod
  • x1 (One) RAZEK Rocket pods
  • x2 (Two) Chain Gun Pods
x2 (Two) LIRAT Aircrafts w/ four additional armament pods
  • x1 (One) RAFUTAR ASM
  • x1 (One) RAZEK 12 Rocket pod
  • x2 (Two) Chain Gun Pods
I have high hopes for these vehicles. If production times and our reports on the performance of the LIRCAS and LIRAT aircraft are favorable, we would be pleased to continue doing business with you.



I look forward to hearing from you as soon as possible,
Raul Tanokich
Purchasing Administrator of the Military of the Kahrivstani Union

Unless stated otherwise, this nation does not reflect my personal views. With that being said, if there is an issue with the portrayal of this nation please let me know. It is one of the major factions fighting for dominance in the Modern Tech failed state of Kahrivstan. I will not use more than one faction in a single thread without permission and generally all of the factions will want to fight one another. Within reason, you do not need my permission to defeat me or kill my characters. I prefer the roleplaying opportunities that losing offers.

Deciding that the country needs a new military, the Ministry of the Armed Forces of Lytrovia will place a large order. Should this be accepted, an even larger order can be expected, after reviews and scrutiny have taken place.

-50 RCC Barons
    -2 Decoy Launching Packages with it
-200 Heavy Machine Gun Pods

-65 RAFUTAR ATS missiles

-20 LIRCAS Aircraft

Please respond with your reply. The Ministry awaits this order to be accepted.

To: Minister of the Armed Forces, Lytrovia
From: Selma Kanderschmidt, Director of Sales, Schwyz Defense Systems





Armed Forces Minister of Lytrovia,

We thank you for contacting us and also for your confidence in us.

Upon investigation of funding for your armed forces and your nation's solvency, we were able to determine that you couldn't possibly be able to afford the NSD $ 36.3 Billion cost for 50 RCC Barons with decoy packages, nor are you likely to for decades into the future. This is not even taking into account the other products requested. In this day and age, our company cannot operate on credit (unsecured promissory notes) and deferred payments of that magnitude. For that reason alone, we must outright deny the full order of 50 RCC Baron aircraft.

Additionally, I believe that you might have misunderstood the product descriptions of the Baron, as the majority of modern day militaries across the world might certainly have the need for a few, maybe even a dozen, of such aircraft, but literally zero nations come to mind that are in need of a whole air wing of Barons. As they are not only EW and AWACs capable, but also Command and Control essential, a little bit goes quite a long way with such aircraft.

After review from the Company Board and the NEDF Oversight Committee, we have decided to ACCEPT your order based on the above conditions.
Therefore...

We will have your order:

  • 2 RCC Barons
    -including 2 Decoy Launching Packages each
  • 200 Heavy Machine Gun Pods
  • 65 RAFUTAR ATS missiles
  • 20 LIRCAS Aircraft

...Ready in 6 months time.
Should this be acceptable, you may deposit the initial fees with our account at EngolBanc.

We look forward to the continuance of a successful business partnership. Let us know what we can do to provide further defense capabilities to the People's Republic.

Sincerely,

Sales Director Selma Kanderschmidt
