Hmmm...@Silverwind Blade Light combat aircraft allowed? Jet powered of course.


You mean something like a Hawk (as an example); light fighters or combat-capable trainers? By all means, yes.

Sorry I've been sitting on the fence about this rp, and then came down really ill the last couple of days.

I think I've intimidated myself put of this one a bit. The mecha one I'd feel more comfortable panting my way through, hut I just don't have the knowledge of real world military stuff, and feel like I'd hold everyone back. I'd be more comfortable doing so in a Sci-fi mecha setting...

Honest word, if I'm the player that decides if this gets off the ground then I'll do my best, but otherwise I think I might bow out and focus on other projects.


That's fair enough; we should still have enough people to keep it going, and if you'd like to join in, you would still of course be welcome.
I am still planning on going ahead with the mecha-based game, but it's just taking a bit longer to hammer out the setting and make it work than I'd like, plus I've also been busy.

No I meant helicopters powered by jet engines.

Yeah. Light fighters, combat-capable trainers, or combat variants of trainer aircraft.
Had found such an aircraft and really liked it. But didn't put much work into the sheet as I wasn't sure if they'd be allowed. Will get working on it. Downside now is deciding on two characters or the backseat computer option.

The F-111 is absolutely allowed; multirole aircraft are perfectly fine. Won't all be air-to-air combat in the slightest.
The F-111 almost straddles the line between Strategic Bomber and tactical aircraft, but it's been used as both, so I don't have a problem with it. I debated choosing one myself, actually.

<Snipped quote by sly13>

No problems, was just getting a bit antsy since I had a good few people on the Int Check, and then nobody seemed to follow across to the OOC. Good to see you're here now, though.


Just wanted to double-check because of that line. but

Approved! I really like him, and look forward to having him in the game :)
I'm a big fan of the F-111 too. I always regret I never got to see one flying, especially with its 'dump-and-burn' show-stopping maneuvre at airshows.

@Silverwind Blade I suggest trying to find one in an airshow, that and the A-4, beautiful planes and majestic in all accounts. I saw a few when an Aussie group and some diggers came here to the states for training when I was doing a FoI on a local base, and she sounded beautiful.

Unfortunately, there aren't any flying anymore since the Australians retired theirs, so I'll never get to see one flying now. But I've seen a couple of them in museums over here in the UK, and admired them since.

@Silverwind Blade They still fly here in the States sometimes during airshows, specially in the South. They are beautiful, I wish I could have seen them in action. But, I guess airshows are a lot more prevalent here in the states than in the Old World.

I have been looking at something that i feel stands out for 4th gen but never took of ground, however i can see it taken out of mothball and brought up to modernization of western tech to make her comperable to other craft current in the group. For the I am really liking as my number one choice being the Yak 141. with modernization and upgrades from western group bringing this craft out of storage would be awesome, she can be modified to use air to air and air to ground weapon systems and keep hold of her VTOL. just feel like it will be a unique aircraft. Another Aircraft I'm looking into is the SU-27/SU-33.

F16XL
Super Viper





Would likely be a better fit with the other plane types

Hey there. It's been forever since I see an AC-style RP. Is it alright if I can partake?

I'm surprised to hear that; everything I've read has said that all the F-111's had been retired a long time ago. I've been lucky to see B-1's at airshows which are the next nearest thing, and one of my other favourite aircraft. A bit out of scope for this RP though xD

And yeah, not surprising really. The USA is much, much bigger geographically than the UK, and with a much better year-round climate that allows for more airshows year round. Not to mention a much higher budget for putting on airshows, with or without military participation. There's a good amount here in the UK, especially from the spring to the summer, but a lot of them are small 'air festivals' locally. Still, I usually go to the biggest one in the country every year.

This is exactly the kind of thing I had in mind and was imagining with the mention of prototype and 'never flew' aircraft, so I'd be absolutely thrilled to see a Yak-141 in the game.

The F-16XL was one of the other aircraft I was considering myself, actually! It's a good choice, and a personal favourite plane, too. I know that Slypheed was originally considering it too, so it's a good choice. And I'd love to have you onboard too, you're certainly more than welcome to join us.

I can certainly go down this route and bring this plane in, I can imagine a plethora of upgrade and maybe increased hard points mixed in with compatibility with western tech and/or alien tech, improved engines to be able to carry more weight and of course be able to use air to air, anti ship, air to surface and bombs to help bring her more in line withthe other craft. other than the 141 the SU33 was my other go to, what you think for the 141 idea? not to much i hope or over the top?

Oh, I'm so sorry - I didn't actually see it! I don't think the site notified me of it, or it came up just as I was posting a reply or something, so I actually missed it completely.
I am very happy for you to participate, we're certainly still open for people at the moment, so please feel free to put a character together and post them up for approval.

Ok thank you! I will finish reading through the lore and cobble up together a character. I will likely be going for one of the Sukhois, maybe the Su 27, so hopefully I won't crash in with the other guys here.

No problem at all; there's no rush at all. I'm not going to be starting until we have a couple more characters; in the least until everyone who's said they're going to post one or join in has done so, or said that they are/aren't interested still.

I'll also be on holiday next week from Saturday - Friday, but I should still be checking in while I'm away (I'm actually not going that far from home, funnily enough, but it does feel like somewhere much further away). If things do get posted and caught up, I'll get the IC up as soon as I can after.
