Peruvian ''flying'' plans

Hmm, I see you've updated your air force since last I paid attention. Would you still be interested in an indigenous design? :p

What-if RAF Aircraft

Quoted Originally posted by Red Admiral Nice drawings; there're some fighter versions of TSR2 in Damien Burke's recent book which I really like as well. TSR2 itself - significant technical problems, especially with mission systems, ballooning costs... It's a very expensive way of delivering 6x1,000lb dumb bombs. I'm glad we plumped the money into Polaris instead. HERESY! :p

Paris Air Show 1940

Quoted Originally posted by BruceDuncan If I understand you correct, I am in agreement with you: without even rudimentry stats and specifications to evaluate, the visualizations of the aircraft have little meaning. This is particularly important with the helicopters - which to my eye seem quite Athenic in their emergence in full-form. Weights, engines, performance parameters - how else can one evaluate the possibility of the design being realistic? You can make educated guesses. I suppose I cou...

Soko Zmaj Twin-Engine Attack Bomber

Next generation of WW tanks!

Extend the tracks to cover up the gap more and use different turrets and components from other tanks to give a better sense of scale, or at least less of a sense of an obvious photoshop.

Next generation of WW tanks!

RE: Help requested

Quoted Originally posted by HoOmAn Hi all.... I am working on the RSAF hardware. Regarding light and medium bombers I am not yet certain which designs to choose. So your input is most welcome. What I need is pictures/drawings first place as I intend to come up with home grown designs in the end. I do have an aviation background and I've been drawing original craft for some other players (mainly AVALMA), so I'd be more than happy to help.

ConstelaciĆ³n Viento

There's a difference between "soaring" and "gliding," and I could be wrong but I'm not aware of any sailplane that can truly "soar" before fiberglass sailplanes. On the other hand, an ab-intro trainer based on a glider is interesting.

Japanese Aircraft

Here, if I may offer something that may be a useful solution: I've been trying to help out AVALMA and some others with, among other things, offering aircraft designs drawn from scratch. I'm not much of an artist - I've got a very shaky hand and bad eyes - but being a member of Shipbucket has at least led me to be technically proficient in, shall we say, placing pixels. And on top of that, I have studied some bits of aerospace design at the college level, and I do have a college degree in the aer...

Various Aircraft and Tanks

Here, this is something that I originally helped AVALMA on for his Royal Netherlands Navy AU that he in turn adapated from some designs I gave him for here, and I have in turn further adapted it for the Greek dive bomber competition. Posting it here in case AVALMA feels there's some copyright contention:

Greek RfP

I would like to request that the Hellenic Air Force consider an independent tender, the end result of which could be produced either by domestic factories or with assitence abroad. I may also be able to ask to combine a tender with a nation or nationalized aeronautical firm that has yet submitted any tenders.

Hey Avalma, you sure you don't want to put my designs in production?

Nakajima B5N

This is a B5N2, btw. The B5N1 had an older engine in it, identifiable by a different cowling. The B5N1 was already completely phased out of frontline units by Pearl Harbor, though.

kleines Kettenkraftrad HK 101 (SonderKraftfahrzeug 2)

Quoted Frankly, I cannot answer the last question. As to the first comments, I will let the fact that in OTL more than 8,500 built between 1939 and 1944 speak for itself. I suppose that a Kettenkrad beats hauling gear by hand. In many respects the vehicle would be like todays ATVs - which can be seen as rather wacky. Kettenkrads were produced after the war across Eastern Europe under their original guise - as civilian agricultural vehicles. Supposedly, they handle well enough for a vehicle like...

A couple of retconned Ocean Liners

I know some sources say that Lexington and Saratoga were considered for conversion into very large ocean liners before becoming carriers. It may simply be confusion concerning this design, since Constitution was a name shared with one of the Lexington hulls at least at one point.

Future US BB design

Quoted Originally posted by ShinRa_Inc minor nit; date for the main guns would be 1916-20, to represent the old guns. Shouldn't really affect anything tho. And if that's the case, the Tennessees should have newer-style turrets, because their original turrets are busy being on a completely different ship!

Future US BB design

It more precisely dictates the importance of getting off the first shot and reducing your opponent's forces to gain a tactical advantage. For example, a smaller force can use the N2 principle to nullify a larger force's advantage if the smaller force is able to get the first volley off well before the enemy can. Or, in as simple a terms as I can put it, N2 law means "the more you make the enemy soldier's dead, the fewer soldiers they'll have to shoot back with."
