The USSNSR wishes to know what the estimated stats for this aircraft are. If they're good enough, the USSNSR would then like to help fund and join in the development.

Nice work digging up the pic :P I say go through with full dev, although it doesn't look as heavy as the Hornet.

(In a way reminds me of a replacement to the F16)

I deeply suggest not selling to Unified Sith. He is classified as a terrorist by many nations.
24-03-2004, 02:03
I am indeed interested in this plane. Looks very interesting. Any stats on it?

This does look quite interesting indeed.

Looks good but is it a VSTOL?
Neo-Soviet Russia
24-03-2004, 13:28
Wet, unsure but I don't believe so. Doesnt seem to show any signs of it.
24-03-2004, 17:29
STOL. VTOL would have made too clumsy in straight line flight.

is this aircraft on the production line ? if so the armed republic of challenger 2 would like 25. I will wire cash when the products are delivered. i wait for a telegram confirming this order, 250 thousand nukes should cover the cost 8)
24-03-2004, 17:53
Too bad you dont have 250,000 nukes
24-03-2004, 19:53
Phoenixius! Stop hijacking my thread!

Challenger 2! What are you on about? If nukes are you currency, we don't accept them.

NOW just 20 million USD
24-03-2004, 19:55
I may buy some, just let me compare the stats to other fighters.

25-03-2004, 08:32
For $20m, it's not a bad deal.
25-03-2004, 08:35
here ya go.

If you need another angle/scene, just ask. All I did was modify an F-15 model... which is basically what your plane is. Still way cool though
25-03-2004, 17:42
come on…… 20 million!

The Armed Republic of Challenger 2

"Supreme Firepower is the Key to Victory !"
UN Category: Psychotic Dictatorship
Civil Rights: Unheard Of Economy: Fair Political Freedoms: Outlawed
Location: mechinised warfare

The Armed Republic of Challenger 2 is a large, safe nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape. Its compassionate, cynical population of 23 million are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded government devotes most of its attentions to Law & Order, with areas such as Religion & Spirituality and Social Welfare receiving almost no funds by comparison. The average income tax rate is 20%, but much higher for the wealthy. A robust private sector is led by the Automobile Manufacturing industry, followed by Cheese Exports and Woodchip Exports.

Scenic mountain valleys are flooded with water as damming projects get underway, organ donation is compulsory, psychological disorders are a taboo subject, and libraries are bulldozed to make way for internet cafés. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. Challenger 2's national animal is the haggis, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its currency is the nuke.

OOC: 99th post :D

Another question.

Could you possibly make a two-engined version. I don't usually see single engine planes as safe for naval aircraft. Its always good to have a back up. So what do you say? I'd definetly purchase some if you made a two-engined version.

Though I will purchase 200 of the current design, for my Air Force.

OOC: I never thought I'd see this thread again. :D
