Z.D.I. AIM-300 'Viper' Short Range Air-To-Air Missile
The Charger of Air Warfare. The Final Killer above the clouds.

Image

UNIT COST: $700,000 per missile
DPR: $4,500,000,000

The Zeus Defense Industries AIM-300 'Viper' is a short-range air-to-air missile designed for use by fighter aircraft and helicopters, though the latter is to a limited degree. Its design featuring similarities to the IRIS-T and the AAM-5, the AIM-300 Viper features extensive maneuverability through thrust-vectoring and other revolutions in its structure to become the final killer of aircraft in air-to-air warfare. It is also equipped with state-of-the-art sensors that can detect and track enemy aircraft with greater accuracy and from greater range.

Compared to legacy missiles such as the AIM-9L, the AIM-300 Viper features better range, better ECM-resistance and flare suppression, which has been made possible through technological superiority and an onboard computer distinguishing flares and the aircraft. Its enhanced connection capability and lock-on-after-launch technology makes the AIM-300 suitable for stealth fighters, which will have to aim the missile while the internal bay is in, and let the missile seek the target after it is outside the internal bay. In addition, unlike most previous missiles, it is even capable of engaging targets behind the aircraft: this is made possible with better agility and superior sensors. Ultimately, the missile was evaluated to be on par with the AIM-9X Block III in terms of range and capability, while it may be superior than the AIM-9X in terms of maneuverability, due to the employment of thrust-vectoring.

Variants

  • AIM-300A 'Viper': Standard variant.
  • AIM-300C 'Super Viper': A variant currently under development. Estimated to feature even better capabilities than the AIM-300A in terms of sensor accuracy and range.
  • RIM-300D 'Sea Viper': Ship-launched version of the AIM-300A. Features range of 18 kilometers.

Specifications

  • Weight: 97.6 kg
  • Length: 2.98 m
  • Warhead: HE/Fragmentation
  • Engine: Solid-Fuel Rocket
  • Operational range: 250 m to 40 km
  • Speed: Mach 3.2
  • Guidance: Infrared homing
  • Launch platform: Fighters, Attack Aircraft, Helicopters (limited)

AGM-302 Lightning Short-Range Air-to-Surface Missile

Postby Atlantica » Sun Apr 26, 2015 9:58 pm

Z.D.I. AGM-302 Lightning Air-to-Surface Missile
Unbelievably Capable. Unbelievably Versatile.

Image

UNIT COST: $150,000 (AGM-302A), $120,000 (AGM-302B), $150,000 (RIM-302A)
DPR (Combined): $10,000,000,000

Also a part of the Joint Air Warfare Weapons System (JAWWS) Program, the AGM-302 is a short-range air-to-surface missile intended to be a competitor to the famous AGM-114 Hellfire and replace an array of missiles of its type, though namely the aging BGM-71 TOW and the AGM-65 Maverick. Featuring longer range and devastation than its predecessors, the AGM-302 Lightning is definitely capable of offering a powerful punch against surface-based enemy targets.

A notable difference between the AGM-302 and other previous missiles is that it primarily uses dual-mode seekers. While the AGM-65 Maverick and the BGM-71 TOW used one method of guidance, the Lightning employs a dual-mode seeker, consisting of a millimeter-wave active radar and a laser seeker. The millimeter-wave radar system comes with autopilot software, allowing the operator to use fire-and-forget tactics against its target. In general, the missile's dual-mode seeker ensures not just greater accuracy but better ability to engage even moving targets - something that wasn't so easy to engage in earlier days. Furthermore, the sensor package enables the missile to be programmable to certain situations, makes it capable of identifying friendly forces in the area and even allow it to self-destruct if needed.

Since the dawn of anti-tank missiles and rocket-propelled grenades (RPG's), armored vehicles of the modern era have used reactive armor to counter shaped charges and high-explosive munitions. To nullify this, the AGM-302 Lightning employs a high-explosive tandem-shaped charge (TSC), which consists of two charges. The first charge, a much smaller one compared to the second, first hits the vehicle, activating (and terminating) the reactive armor, until the more explosive and destructive second charge hits the armor, penetrating the base armor. The AGM-302 Lightning is capable of offering solutions to modern armored warfare, where composite armor and high-explosive munitions have proven to be common.

Variants

  • AGM-302A Lightning: Standard variant with dual-mode seekers.
  • AGM-302B Lightning-C: Low-cost, single-mode seeker variant. Only equipped with the millimeter-wave radars.
  • RIM-302A Lightning-M: Navalized variant meant to counter swarm boats and smaller surface ships.

Specifications (AGM-302A)

  • Weight: 48.3 kg
  • Length: 1.8 m
  • Diameter: 17.7 cm
  • Warhead: HEAT tandem shaped warhead (TSC)
  • Engine: Solid-fuel rocket
  • Operational Range: 25 km (fixed-wing launched), 14 km (rotorcraft launched)
  • Speed: About Mach 1.28
  • Guidance System: Extremely High-Frequency Millimeter-Wave Radar and Laser Seeker
  • Accuracy: CEP of less than 1 m
  • Steering System: Flight Control Surfaces
  • Launch Platform: Fixed-Wing Combat Aircraft, Helicopters, Ships

AGM-303 Thunder Gliding Air-to-Ground Weapon [WIP]

Postby Atlantica » Sun Apr 26, 2015 9:58 pm

Z.D.I. AGM-303 Thunder Gliding Air-to-Ground Weapon System
The Bringer of Revolutionary Bomb Tech. The Bringer of Doom with Precision.

Image

UNIT COST: $200,000 (Standard), $280,000 (Booster)
DPR: $12,000,000,000

The AGM-303 Thunder is a gliding air-to-ground weapon system meant to fulfill strike missions within the 50 km ~ 100 km range without resorting to high-cost missiles. Similar to the Raytheon Small Diameter Bomb (SDB) in a number of ways, the AGM-303 Thunder is meant to increase the strike capability that a single aircraft can handle: thanks to its small size, a single aircraft can carry more of it, resulting in an increase of targets that can be attacked per mission.

One of the most notable features of the AGM-303 Thunder is in its gliding wings - something that makes its range of at least 70 kilometers possible. Aided by its guidance system (explained below), the Thunder glides down towards the target for several kilometers and eventually strikes down upon it, with a high angle-of-attack being an option. During the process, the Thunder actively seeks its target, correcting itself on the way using its gliding wings and control surfaces. Its range is further extended when using boosters - if fitted with boosters, the booster propels the munition in its initial launching phase, resulting in faster speeds before it is gliding down.

The AGM-303 Thunder is primarily guided with a GPS/INS guidance system and can also use datalinks, like many of the recent munitions out on the market today. However, it distinguishes itself from other bombs through an Integrated Guidance Sensor (IGS) on the front of the munition, which provides guidance in two additional modes: millimeter-wave radar and infrared. The Integrated Guidance Sensor enables the munition to counter GPS jamming and home onto its target, making it able to correct its path in the process. This technology is exceptionally useful when countering moving targets - against targets whose locations change, the IGS definitely proves its worth.

Another advantage that the AGM-303 Thunder offers is in its numbers. Previously, many precision-guided bombs, such as the Joint Direct Attack Munition (JDAM), had been larger - this meant more destructive power, but this also meant that smaller numbers of those can be carried on a single aircraft or within a limited payload. In fact, larger sizes haven't proven to satisfy the needs of fifth-generation aircraft, which have even more limited space to carry munitions. However, the AGM-303 Thunder is smaller than other munitions, at about 250 lbs: as a result, more of them can be fitted within a single aircraft, resulting in more targets that can be engaged with the same number of sorties.

Specifications (Standard)

  • Weight: 210 lb (95.3 kg)
  • Length: 1.75 m
  • Diameter: 15.9 cm (0.159 m)
  • Warhead: 110 lb (49 kg)
  • Operational Range
    • Standard: 100 km against fixed targets, 70 km against moving targets
    • w/ Booster: 140 km against fixed targets, 90 km against moving targets
  • Guidance System: GPS/INS Guidance System, Integrated Guidance Sensor (IGS), Datalinks
  • Launch Platform: Various Fixed-Wing Aircraft

AIM-400 Avenger BVRAAM

Postby Atlantica » Sat Sep 19, 2015 8:35 am

Z.D.I. AIM-400 'Avenger' Beyond Visual Range Air-To-Air Missile
The Lance in Air Warfare. A Key to Air Superiority.

Image

UNIT COST: $1,200,000 per missile
DPR: $7,000,000,000

The Zeus Defense Industries AIM-400 Avenger is a beyond visual range air-to-air missile (BVRAAM) designed to take out enemy targets from longer distances and with greater accuracy than its predecessors, namely the AIM-120 AMRAAM. To achieve such, the AIM-400 Avenger is equipped with a multi-shot capability against long-range maneuvering targets in a heavy electronic countermeasures (ECM) environment, countering the enemy's every move. Its ducted ramjet engines, as well as its aerodynamic design, makes its maximum speed of Mach 4 and range of 160 kilometers possible.

The AIM-400 Avenger uses a multi-function active radar homing seeker, developed by Paladin Systems. Improvements from previous seekers enable the missile to be launched in an active "fire-and-forget" mode, making a 'hit n' run' tactic possible. Advancements in datalink technology have made the missile possible for mid-course updates and even retargeting, receiving feedback from friendly forces via datalink. Once the target is within 25 km from the missile, the missile turns into active radar homing, finally striking the target with a high-explosive blast-fragmentation warhead. Considering the possibilities of a target breaking lock from the missile, its host radar system maintains computed target information in case the target breaks the missile's lock-on.

Specifications

  • Weight: 180 kg
  • Length: 3.62 m
  • Diameter: 0.174 m
  • Warhead: High explosive blast-fragmentation
  • Engine: Ducted rocket
  • Operational Range: At least 160 km (Rumors claim 300+ km)
  • Speed: Mach 4
  • Guidance System: Inertial Guidance, mid-course update/retargeting through datalink, terminal active radar homing

AGM-501 Thor Cruise Missile

Postby Atlantica » Sat Sep 19, 2015 8:35 am

Present all orders to the Corporate Home and do not post in this thread. Failure to do such will result in negligence of the order. Thank You.

Z.D.I. AGM-501 'Thor' Cruise Missile
Redefining the Art of Cruise Missiles. Redefining Naval Warfare.

Image

UNIT COST: $2,000,000 (air-launched) - Prices May Vary
DPR (Combined Cost for All): $25,000,000,000

The Zeus Defense Industries AGM-501 'Thor' is a long-range, all-weather, supersonic cruise missile/anti-ship missile capable of carrying out anti-ship and anti-surface strikes. Starting production in 2009 as the first supersonic cruise missile to be in service of the Greater Eastern Imperium Defense Forces, the AGM-501 Thor was to replace many of the aging cruise missiles on the 300km range, as well as subsonic anti-ship missiles such as the Exocet and the RGM-84 Harpoon. Though initially designed as an air-launched cruise missile, it remains capable of being launched from surface platforms, including land-based truck launchers, ships and even submarines below the surface.

The AGM-501 'Thor' redefines the art of cruise missiles in three ways. The first factor is in its supersonic stealth capability. Supersonic capability within cruise missiles has been brought to reality by already-existing missiles, such as the Japanese XASM-3 and the famous Russian-Indian BrahMos missile. Stealth within anti-ship missiles has been achieved through existing examples as well, such as the Kongsberg Naval Strike Missile (NSM). However, the AGM-501 Thor, achieves a maximum speed of Mach 3 through the usage of high-efficiency ramjet engines, while it has unique design characteristics to absorb or block radar and infrared signatures while retaining the speed. This is a large leap forward in the art of cruise missiles - it is an intersection of supersonic speed and stealth.

The second factor in which the AGM-501 redefines cruise missiles is in its AESA radar. Unusual to most missiles today, the AGM-501 is fitted with an advanced AESA radar on its nose, making it capable of not just detecting seaborne targets but also ground-borne targets - in fact, thanks to its AESA radar and other sensors, it is capable of accurately identifying the target ship's characteristics like an image and finding the optimum target spot. This is another leap ahead in terms of cruise missiles - the AGM-501 partially brings what a high-tech fighter can do today.

The third factor comes from its unique warheads. Getting its original ideas from gun-launched grenades and shotguns in infantry warfare and MIRV's from ballistic missiles, the AGM-501 has a three-stage warhead that is all launched within the missile initially. One of the warheads is an armor-piercing shrapnel shell capable of penetrating ships, while the other two are configured with high-explosive rounds that can cripple the ship's sensors or strike a different location. Though the warheads can be switched into other types of warheads (thermobaric, area-denial, anti-personnel/anti-vehicle heatseeking cluster submunitions, nuclear, multi-staged warheads, delayed or sensor-fused weaponry), the three-warhead signature is retained. To apply all this in naval warfare, it can be said that the AGM-501 can strike a warship's missile launchers, propulsion and its sensors - all with one missile. In other words, the AGM-501 can attack multiple targets with a single missile - another great advance forward for cruise missiles.

  • AGM-501 'Thor': Standard air-launched variant. Can be fitted with boosters to increase range.
  • RGM-501 'Thor-S': Surface-launched variant. Can be launched from warships and land-based launchers (trucks and silos).
