HIA TR-02 Aykma (Eagle) VTOL

Postby Machina Haruspex » Sat Jul 02, 2011 3:32 pm


The TR-02 Aykma (Eagle) is a tilt rotor design. The aircraft flies much like a conventional aircraft in most cases but the blades can be flipped upwards so that the aircraft can hover. The aircraft is much faster than helicopters in level flight but can hover just like a helicopter. The design fills many roles including transport, gunship, electronics warfare, and anti-submarine warfare.

The TR-02 'Aykma' can carry up to twenty troops or a variety of other cargo. The aircraft carries decoy launchers for self defense. Also, a maximum of eight missiles or a larger number of smaller ordnance can be carried on the wings except the airborne radar version of the TR-02 'Aykma'.

One role envisioned for the aircraft was to make missile strikes against enemy vessels when the threat assessment was low and fighters were not required. For ground attack roles, mini-missile ppds such as Hellfires are sometimes carried to clear an area before troops are landed. Usually, torpedoes would be carried on anti-submarine versions of the aircraft when operating in the anti-submarine role. Both the transport and anti-submarine warfare versions of the TR-02 'Aykma' have a cargo hook.

The anti-submarine warfare version carries a dipping sonar and magnetic anomaly detector (known as MAD gear) for submarine hunting. In addition, the aircraft can carry a large number of sonar buoys. A total of thirty-two sonar buoys can be carried in the cargo hold. The anti-submarine warfare version of the TR-02 'Aykma' has a crew of four with two of the crew acting as sensor operators.

The airborne radar version of the TR-02 'Aykma' mounts a small but powerful radar system above the main fuselage but is low enough that it does not interfere with the rotor blades. The airborne radar version does not retain the ability to fire missiles and does not have positions for side gunners although the doors remain. The crew of this version is even greater than on the Anti-Submarine warfare version with a crew of six with four of the crew operating the electronics which takes up virtually all of the cargo bay's available space.

Armaments for Combat Versions
1. Side Door Gunner Mounted LPGG-02 [Liquid Propellant Gatling Gun](2): The TR-02 'Aykma' has two positions for door gunner. These weapon systems are normally used when trying to protect the helicopter while it is dropping troops. Door gunner is exposed to fire when in positions. The door guns cannot be used if the vehicle is traveling over 100 mph (161 kph) and is not mounted on the airborne radar version of the TR-02 'Aykma'.

Liquid Propellant Gatling Gun: This weapon's primary purpose is use against infantry and other lightly armored targets. The weapon can fire all types of burst available to machine guns except extended bursts. The weapon uses a special liquid propellant which delivers about four times the force of nitro-cellulose propellant and the weapon fires an 8 mm round.

Maximum Effective Range: 3,000 ft (914 m)
Payload: 3000 rounds each.
Caliber: 8mm (Note this weapon is not available for export to the The Forgotten Lands Region, models manufactured to be sent there will be armed with the following:
GLM-01 LMG on pintle door mounts on left and right sides of the aircraft)

2. GSH 30mm Cannon: Unlike most rotary cannons, it is gas-operated rather than electric, allowing it to "spin up" to maximum rate of fire more quickly, allowing more rounds to be placed on target in a short-duration burst. Ignition is electrical.

Weight: 149 kg (328 lb)
Projectile: 390 g (13¾ oz)
Length: 2040 mm
Cartridge: 30×165 mm
Caliber: 30 mm (1.18 in)
Barrels: 6
Action: Gas actuated, electrically fired
Rate of fire: 4000–6000 rounds/min
Muzzle velocity: 845 m/s (2770 ft/s)
Maximum Effective Range: 4,000 feet (1,200 meters)
Payload: 2,000 round drum for 50 bursts.

3. Ordnance Hard Points (8): The aircraft has eight hard points with four hard points on each wing. Missiles, rocket packs, and bombs can be mixed or matched but all ordnance on a hard point must be the same type. The airborne radar version of the TR-02 'Aykma' does not retain these hard points.

Bombs and Missiles: The only restriction is that a hard point must carry all the same type of missiles or bombs. Both unguided and guided bombs can be carried. These are often replaced by torpedoes on the Anti-Submarine Warfare model.

Maximum Effective Range: Varies by missile type for missile type and varies by altitude bombs are dropped at.

4. Anti-Missile Chaff Dispenser: Located at the very tail of the aircraft are two chaff dispensers. When tailed by a missile, a cloud of chaff and other obtrusive particles can be released to confuse or detonate the enemy's attack.

Payload: Eight (8)

Sensors and Processing Systems
Internal Active Jamming Gear
E.S.M.: Radar Detector, Passively detects other radars being operated.
FLIR: Forward Looking Infrared. Allows pilot and weapons officer to get visuals on targets at night.
Laser Navigational System: Allow flight at low altitude without use of Radar. Gives a map of the Terrain.

Anti-Submarine Warfare:
M.A.D. Gear: This gear is normally only carried on ASW versions of this aircraft. This is special equipment that has the ability to detect metal objects. M.A.D. stands for Magnetic Anomaly Detector. This is very effective at detecting submarines. Range: 2 miles (3.2 km) to either side of aircraft.

Dipping Sonar: Dipping sonar is normally only carried on ASW versions of this aircraft. The sensor includes a passive sonar, active sonar, and an underwater communication unit. The active sonar and communication system can be detected by any vehicle using passive sonar if within their detection range. Sonar can track up to 24 simultaneously and identify up to 12 of them. The sonar equipment has a unit that can be lower into water while hovering or flying up to 30 mph (26 knots/ 48 km) per hour. Range: Passive Sonar: 4 miles (6.4 km) Active Sonar: 6 miles (9.7 km). Underwater Communication: 2 miles (3.2 km)

Airborne Radar:
VCI-6 Radar System: top mounted radar system with 360 degree coverage and can track both airborne and surface targets. Radar system has a range of 360 miles (580 km) and can track up to 256 targets simultaneously and can perform intercepts to up to 48 targets simultaneously. The system replaces all weapon systems and cargo capacity with electronic systems and requires 4 crew members to operate

Advanced Communication Package: Give the aircraft the ability of multi-direction communication of 500 miles (800 km) as well as direction communication out to 300 miles (480 km) to up to 16 individual targets. The system also has 16 laser/microwave communication systems that are only limited by line of sight (Range of about 100,000 miles / 161,000 km).
