Samantha says as she points to the map on the table. It was very low tech compared to the digital display table she usually used, but you've only just arrived to Atlas' headquarters in Area B7R, the Pillar, and you and the rest of the Artemis team haven't had a chance to really settle in yet. "You'll be doing a combat air patrol on Atlas' northern boundaries."(cont)
>>38050489"Expected resistance?" Lilian asks."Pretty light. As long as you don't venture too far out of Atlas territory, it's not likely that Dahl or Hyperion flights will challenge you. However, that doesn't preclude hotheads on either side starting shit." Samantha shoots all of you a warning look. "We want to keep conflict to a minimum. Other than that, the most likely opponent you'll be facing will be recon UAVs. I know they're not very challenging targets, but we don't them having their way in our client's airspace.""Understood." You nod. "Anything else we should know?""You might get messages on the emergency band, either from Atlas facilities or independents." Samantha continues. "Of course, you're to put Atlas facilities on a higher priority. Actually, you're discouraged from responding to non-Atlas distress calls, but that's entirely your decision.">I would help if I can.>Understandable. We're not a charity.>Other
>>38050492>Understandable. We're not a charity.Best night of the week!
>>38050492>I would help if I can.Haha time to mix up tanks and planes
>>38050492>I would help if I can.Knight4lyfe.
>>38050492>>I would help if I can.
>>38050492>>I would help if I can.But we're still going to protect our primary objective
>>38050492>I would help if I can.
>>38050492>I would help if I can.The mission comes first, but I won't ignore someone in need.
>>38050492>>Understandable. We're not a charity.
>>38050492>I would help if I can.Anyone who attacks indies might start shit with us later on anyway.
>>38050492>I would help if I can.I wonder how the media would react to some mercenaries blowing up those "independants"
>>38050492"I would help if I could." You say."Heh, figured you would say that." Samantha chuckles. "You won't be getting any bonus for it, but at least you'd get the bounty for any enemies you down.""Heh, I wonder if we'll go up against those OB guys again?" Lara grins. "They were pretty tough opponents. I'd LOVE to fly against them again!""Of course." You roll your eyes. "Maybe we won't get our fighters totally wrecked this time.""Bah! That's half the fun!" Lara laughs as she slaps you on the back. "It's not exciting if there weren't some element of danger to it, right?""I guess." You sigh."Oh, also," Samantha adds. "Quint is here and has already set up shop to start gouging the Atlas guys on whatever crap he's managed to smuggle in with him. If you happen to need anything before the patrol, you better go talk to him now. That's it for the briefing, unless you have any other questions.">Question? (specify)>Head to the hangar.>Head to the shop.>Other
>>38051029>>Head to the shop.
>>38051029>>Head to the shop.Let's go buy us our Eagle/Flanker!
>>38051029>Head to the shop.
>>38051061I don't know which one I want. Help.
>>38051029>Head to the shop.Time for a super flanker
>>38051029>Head to the shop.I need a freakin dri--Mudhen.
>>38051029>Head to the shop.new plane time!so what are we getting, Eagle or Flanker, I can't decide, I like both, the Possibility of the Terminator is delicious but at the same time you can't go wrong with an Eagle.
Weekly reminder of our endgame.
>>38051092Super flanker is the correct answer.
>>38051092>>38051108Wouldn't mind a STOL/MTD, or a Terminator.
>>38051116Thats not a Fandance
Sorry for rough drawing.Weather here kinda bitch and they sap my stamina.Idolmaster knowledge is needed.
>>38051149Exactly, and it will eat them for breakfast.
>>38051116You got the wrong pic man.
>>38051158Nah, our plan is Eagle/Flanker-->upgrade to current gen Eagle/Terminator-->Black Widow-->AC superplane
I'm in the boat for an Eagle, personally. Solid workhorse.
>>38051186AC superplaneShinden 2 is endgame
>>38051116whatever our endgame plane is, i hope at least the rest of our team will get same or equal planes.
>>38051108I want the F-16 upgrade. I just love the Falcon.
>>38051213XL is love
>>38051150>Dat ProducerI laughed more than I should have10/10 would laugh again
>>38051213We're not upgrading our Falcon, we're way past that, but we will however be keeping our Falcon and not selling it.
>>38051206Need to get Amy out of the A-10. It's a 40 year old coffin strapped to a gun.>>38051255Agreed.
>>38051213>>38051253Nope, we're getting a new plane, our Falcon is already becoming obsolete as it stands now and upgrading it is not feasible.But as a compromise we at least won't be selling the Falcon.
>>38051150P-san has already a full roster of Cyberidols!
>>38051029"I'll stop by the shop. I'll see you guys later." You say. "Sure thing." Lara nods. "Have fun!"Well, you suppose now was a good time as any to check out what Quint has in stock. You've now got a fair amount of credits, and Quint is sure to have some new goodies in stock."Ah, Karla, it's nice to see you!" Quint smiles as you enter his makeshift shop, selling all sorts of "contraband" from cigarettes to candy bars to premium toilet paper. Items worth more than their weight in gold in remote facilities like this. "What can I do for you?SHOP LIST: http://pastebin.com/u7vr2FqWYou have 34800 credits to spend. Your Falcon is currently worth 10000 credits if you plan to sell it.>Do you purchase anything?
>>38051343>Need to get Amy out of the A-10. It's a 40 year old coffin strapped to a gun.So... whatever that Ground Raptor attack variant is named?>>38051371Didn't follow cyberidol, unfortunately... i realize i missing potential joke but eh.
>>38051401>F-15Remove Stove.>>38051343Get her a FregataIt's like a Warthog with less gun and four engines of Fuck You.
>>38051401F-15 Eagle - 30000
>>38051371>>38051150Not sure if they'd be combat idols, though.
>>38051401Oh god you are making me choose.>Su-27 FlankerI like the Terminator too much.
>>38051401god damnit I can't decide.Merc, what kind of upgrades can the Eagle and Flanker get and what are their stats like?
>>38051401>>Do you purchase anything?ugh, decision...decision...>buy F-15 Eagle>DO NOT sell F-16
>>38051401>Su-27 FlankerHaha we Yellow 13 soon.
>>38051401>F-15 EagleI hope that one day we can get or rebuild our Dads Flanker, it could replace our Falcon as our backup/joyride plane.
>>38051401Eagle, duh. Also part of me wants to load up a Mudhen in the future
>>38051401>>F-15Any upgrades for the Eagle?
>>38051401Can you at least tell us more about the planes than their cost and "Thei iz good flyers"?
>>38051401Buy the F-15.Though I hope we get more targets per mission so we can get more money per mission.
Also, if we really buy F-15, start calling our team with 'Buddy' and see their reaction.
>>38051401>F-16XL upgradePissin' against the tide.
>>38051555Manga plz.Also, where's the art with karla and pixy redoing the scene from monty python and the holy grail?
>>38051555We've been doing that since we chose to be Pixy in the airshow.
>>38051537We seem to be getting more fodder when we dont' encounter higher value targets or we get to choose between the two
>>38051614Probably because Knight route, right?
>>38051593Oh yeah, that. After Ice/Slider/Katya Lewd/outright H for SW89>>38051601...oh?
>>38051555Karla is pretty much this generation's Pixy anyway other than the founding a terrorist organization part.
>>38051665>other than the founding a terrorist organization part.not yet.
>>38051665>>than the founding a terrorist organization part.YET.
>>38051649Yep. Don't you remember?Anyway>>38051401>Buy dat EagleMaximum buddytimes
>>38051649>Dat [REDACTED]This pleases the Lewdites.
>>38051692>Don't you remember?My memory on that section mostly about how we almost get killed by those two Flankers and how Karla re-enact Solo Wing part, the rest is kinda blurry.
Hey MercMeeercThese babies when?
>>38051422>FregataSeems too A2A focused for her. Maybe an FB-22 or the YR-99, if we get crazy.
So, I'm not saying that we should figure out a way to combine FAEB bombs and LASM's.Oh wait, that's exactly what I'm saying.
>>38051766>Fregata>A2ANigga it's a pureblood attacker. On Speed.
>>38051746More importantly, when are we getting THESE babies?>>38051774EXPLAIN FURTHER
>>38051766The Fregata is the bomber version of the YR-99...
>>38051798That's the YRB-89, do you even Skies of Incursion?
>>38051796There's not much to explain. Figure out a way to put a fuel air explosive warhead on a anti-ship missile. Better yet, you could figure out some way to put it on a large version of 4AGM's for maximum warcrimes.
>>38051825Wouldn't it just be a LSWM at that point?
>>38051401Okay, just to confirm, you guys want to buy the F-15 Eagle?>Y>N
>>38051825So up-sizing link related?http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/RPO-A_Shmel
>>38051874I voted for the Su27 but we lost fair and square.>Y
>>38051874>NTo be honest, I hate the F-15 S/MTD.
>>38051874>NThe Eagle's boring. There. I said it.
>>38051899So do I. If we're going to go with an aircraft that we could eventually upgrade, I'd rather an F-14.
>>38051927But the 15 upgrades so very well.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/McDonnell_Douglas_F-15_STOL/MTD
>YIs our supplier trustworthy? Hasted Pic related.
>>38051972Boring. And ugly. And no gun either.
>>38051978Incredibly trustworthy. Super-duper trustworthy. Trust me on it, he's a guy you can trust.
>>38051978>Is our supplier trustworthy?Not with that nose. Nice job by the way.
>>38051978>Dat serious Karla>Dat large nosed QuintPERFECT
>>38051986this is strangereal, if we want it to have a gun, it'll have one.
>>38051978I don't get it, why is Karla talking with Igor's younger brother?>>38051986The NIGHTHAWK has a gun, why do you think the STOL won't?
>>38051978Great job, Mudhen!
>>38051927But the F-14 is a dead end past the D model...With the Eagle you can go towards the Active Eagle, or towards the F-15J Kai+ Slam/Strike/Silent Eagle path.Though I'm interested to know where the default Eagle stands, our Phantom was a 'Super Phantom', and our Falcon was roughly Block 30 equivalent, so that would mean the Eagle wouldn't be stock, but more likely an E model or something similar.>>38051986They actually made a conformal gunpod to get around that issue but by then the STOL/MTD became a testbed rather than a production fighter so it wasn't needed.Also in AC the S/MTD has a gun, like everything else in AC, including the fucking Nighthawk.
>>38052010>>38052016It's still boring though. And still ugly, like DAYUM.
>>38051978>That noseI think I saw it somewhere.
>>38051874"I think I'll take the Eagle." You say, pointing to the faded picture in Quint's catalog."Hm, solid choice!" Quint nods. "Just so happens we got one ready and waiting! Want us to get it out of storage? We can probably whip Smokey into getting it in place before your patrol.">I'll take the Eagle.>I'll stick with the Falcon for the moment.>Other
>>38051978Always pictured Quint like this.
>>38051978Nice. Though the positioning of the cane looks kind of awkward to me.
>>38052028Indeed I saw it elsewhere too, a pity that particular quest isn't around anymore.>>38052033>>I'll take the Eagle.
>>38052033>I'll take the Eagle.
>>38052023>But the F-14 is a dead end past the D model...Nope. Quickstrike and ASF-21
>>38052033>>I'll stick with the Falcon for the moment.One last ride.Plus, it won't have the proper paint scheme.
>>38052033>>I'll stick with the Falcon for the moment.Stick with the Falcon. Get the Eangle painted in the usual colors.
>>38052033Oh right, and:>EAGLE PURCHASED>EAGLE UPGRADES UNLOCKED>-$30000>$4800 remains.
>>38052033>>I'll take the Eagle.
>>38052033>I'll take the Eagle.Break the baby in>>38052023Probably the C, most AC games have the C as the first unlockable Eagle.
>>38052033>I'll take the Eagle.>>38052054Both of which can't even compete with the Terminator upgrades or the late/current variants and next-gen variants of the Eagle.
>>38051978Karla's glare is arousing...
>>38052033>>I'll take the Eagle.Let's break this bad boy in
>>38052069We don't want to 'break the baby in' on a flight where we might encounter resistance.
>>38052033>I'll take the Eagle.Nothing in the briefing screamed AtG.
>>38052033>I'll stick with the Falcon for the moment.Memories, so many of 'em.
>>38052033>I'll stick with the Falcon for the moment.We'll break it in later
>>38052074But you don't really need to have the super duper elite upgrades either, because Ace Combat. And even then, by the time you get to situations where an ASF-14 can't really cut it, that's when you get an F-22 or F-23 or whatever.
>>38052033>I'll stick with the Falcon for the moment.One last hurrah for the Viper...>www.youtube.com/watch?v=335GdTqtyLs
>>38052033>>I'll stick with the Falcon for the moment.
>>38052033>I'll take the Eagle.The odds are pretty good that we will need every AtA advantage we can get.
>>38052016Sort of a crap attempt at an Area88 joke. Probably shouldn't have rushed it though. >>38052005Oh good, I was worried for a minute. >>38052040That may be more appropriate! >>38052041Certainly not the only problem with it, haha. Just wanted to get it posted while we were still talking to Quint.>>38051150Almost missed this! Great work. >>38052033>I'll stick with the Falcon for the moment.
>>38052256>Area 88Now you made want to see Karla duel the Flaming Unicorn.
>>38052256Yeah I figured as much, but couldn't help but focus on the Super Schnoz.
>>38052295Now imagine...Karla is about to engage enemy. Four of them.As they getting closer, suddenly all of them are shot down, and a Lone F-8 emerge.Insert appropriate music here.
>>38052295>Implying they wouldn't team up to stuff OB with missiles.
>>38052064What are our Eagle Upgrades Merc? Can we shoot for an S/MTD? Because that's my Planefu and I want Karla to become Maneuverability Incarnate.
>>38052033>I'll take the EagleWe live dangerous, fuck a shakedown run.
>>38052426Why not go full Active past the S/MTD
>>38052033"I guess I'll take the Eagle." You say. "Ship it over to our hangar, okay?""Ha, Smokey's gonna throw a fit when he finds out he's gotta do last minute work!" Quint throws his head back in laughter. "All right, we'll get that baby ready for you in no time." Cheered up by your fresh purchase, you head back to your hangar, where you see a brand new F-15C Eagle being towed into the hangar. Goddamn, Quint worked FAST. Already, you could see Smokey throwing a fit. However, you knew he'd do the job out of professional pride. "You're a real piece of work, ordering a new plane at the last second like that." Smokey grumbles. "But you can do it, right?" You ask."Of course I can! Doesn't mean I gotta like it!" Smokey shakes his head. "Oh, nice! We got matching birds now!" Lara laughs as she hugs you from behind. "It's like we're sisters now or something!""Great, now we'll just have more trouble telling the two apart." Amy rolls her eyes. "Hey, you're one to talk. You're still flying the same Warthog you got when you joined up." Lara retorts. "Maybe you should upgrade, like to the Lightning-""YOU KNOW THAT PLANE IS A PIECE OF SHIT FOR CAS!" Amy bellows."Anyways." Smokey says, completely ignoring the duo. "What do you want to load up for? It's certainly going to be an AA mission.">4AAMs>QAAMs>Other

>>38052442our shakedown run will be a chill patrol against UAVs
>>38052453>QAAMsGet ready for an OB encore.
>>38052453>>4AAMsDon't think we need QAAM yet, and we are in air patrol.
>>38052453>>4AAMsAh Amy. A girl after my heart.Also, just sayin' but we should have gone with the XL. Then we could have both 4AAM's AND QAAMS.Or two sets of 4AAMs. But no, everyone has to go boring generic Eagle.

>>38052453>QAAM'sIf we run into any of those Round Table Ghosts or Galm 1 again I want us to be ready with Bullshit Missiles.
>>38052453>4AAMsMUH CROSS MISS I'LL MASSACRE>"YOU KNOW THAT PLANE IS A PIECE OF SHIT FOR CAS!" Amy bellows.Amy confirmed for hating F-35's.
>>38052502Bullshit Missiles? Really?
>>38052498>But no, everyone has to go boring generic Eagle.>But no, everyone has to go for the massively superior upgrade and I'm salty that we couldn't stay obsolete and underpowered and get shot down.
>>38052516If they're AC04 QAAMs, he's not wrong.
>>38052513is CAS a typo?
>>38052453>Amy confirmed for not knowing shit
>>38052498>>38052513Looks like Amy will be going for a Strike Raptor if she does decide to upgrade.
>>38052447Either works. I just want us to Fly one with those extra Wings soon. It's such a beautiful Aircraft, majestic even.
>>38052531CASClose Air Support.
>>38052498Eagle is better on air combat, and i will keep support anyone who want to upgrade our Falcon into XL in future.
>>38052520It's not "massively inferior" nor is it underpowered or even obsolete.
>>38052531Nope. Amy is just pointing out the f-35 is a joke as far as Close Air Support (CAS) is concerned.>>38052535Sounds nice. Though I prefer she'd Mudhen the place.
>>38052516The QAAM's are what you use when you want to fight someone who has a superior plane and has bullshit plot powers, they are made to fuck up boss characters.
>>38052560>Amy is just pointing out the f-35 is a joke as far as Close Air Support (CAS) is concerned.But that's wrong. Is the F-16 shit for CAS?
>>38052560And that it is also a piece of shit plane.
>>38052583Honestly, the Viper and Lightning are miles apart in terms of CAS performance.I'd much rather stick to the thin Viper over a "Muh Stealth" bird any day.>>38052593Muh wingmate.
>>38052612>Honestly, the Viper and Lightning are miles apart in terms of CAS performance.How so? Why do you think that? The evidence points that the Lightning is superior to the Viper in all ways for it.
>>38052612>>38052583Isn't this all pointless anyway, Amy's not upgrading anytime soon and we're not CAS fighters, so we're just pissing in the wind.
>>38052593Why is the F-35 shit?
>>38052633It's kind of a jack of no trades.
>>38052630Mate, I can't stand willful ignorance.
>>38052655Yep, without them being fucking speshul snowflakes demanding that they get their own fighters with retarded requriements the F-35 would be soo much better than it is.
>>38052653Good enough reason for me.
>>38052655Without them we would have the F-32 instead. We could have had the dopiest looking plane ever!
>>38052647Multirole aircraft are anything but useless. Do you think the F-16 or F-15E are bad planes? Do note that actual TACPs prefer the F-15E as their CAS aircraft of choice.>>38052655What, the F-35B has caused the fighter to be awful? Not really. The F-35 has got similar maneuverability to the F-16. The A and C variants both have good payloads.The F-35B also increases power projection capabilities by a substantial bit for a large number of countries. Now LHDs are even more effective. The Brits aren't stuck with AV-8s on their Queen Elisabeth.
>>38052680What the fuck am I looking at? It's like the Raptor wouldn't stop wolfing down hotwings or some shit.
>>38052735>It's like the Raptor wouldn't stop wolfing down hotwings or some shit.snrk
>>38052735>It's like the Raptor wouldn't stop wolfing down hotwings or some shit.I laughed.
>>38052735The X-32's VTOL system sucked.
>>38052735Happy stealth plane is happy, that's what is.Although I still don't get why the x-32 has a belly like that.
>>38052735You're looking at a better plane than the F-35B with massively improved VTOL/STOL capabilities, that actually made it in under budget, but lost because of politics and LM being corrupt as fuck.
>>38052735Don't worry, General Resource will revisit the design and improve it.http://acecombat.wikia.com/wiki/F/A-32C_Erne
>>38052765Funny how when they finally completed it after being shafted with getting less funding it actually outperformed the X-35B...
>>38052779>http://acecombat.wikia.com/wiki/F/A-32C_Erne>That Open MouthSo... it's an F-16 with Downs?
>>38052453"I'm in the mood for QAAMs." You say. "Never know when you might need them.""All right." Smokey says, and them mutters under his breath. "Right, and I gotta pain the damn thing too..."---"Okay, who's turn is it?" Lara asks."Ooooh! Oooooh! It's mine!" Amy says as she throttles up her Warthog.Currently, your flight was flying combat air patrol over the skies of the Round Table. However, all you could see was endless blue sky and endless brown desert. Hell, even your radar scopes were completely clear. Not even a single speck of cloud cover or flock of birds.So now, you were all basically relieving your boredom by downing the numerous drones you caught in the most creative ways you could. Lilian and Lara simply gunned theirs down, but you had the feeling Amy had something else in mind. You see her Warthog sidle up next to the target UAV, putting her left wingtip right under the drone's right win. Then, with a simple push of her stick, she tilts her wing up, sending the drone into an irrecoverable spin as it tumbles to the ground, shattering like glass on the desert sand below."All right, Valk, it's your turn." Amy says. "I think I saw another one just up ahead.Sure enough, you could see yet another recon UAV, just puttering along leisurely. >Be efficient. Take it out quickly.>Be show. Let them know exactly who they're messing with.>Other
>>38052779>>38052807Too stable, not enough firepower.>General Resource Shit/10
I wonder if it will be possible to purchase something BIG later, like REAL bombers. Hell, maybe something like B-1/2s or AC-130/b-52s? I know Ace combat is all about those dogfights and stuff, but seeing amy BLAZING THE EARTH to oblivion sounds fun, while the rest of the crew is dominating the skies with missile massacre.
>>38052832>>Be show. Let them know exactly who they're messing with.Fun
>>38052832>>Be show. Let them know exactly who they're messing with.

>>38052832>Be a Showoff, let them know exactly who they're messing with.Get in their faces, if they want to know what they're up against, let them. And let them know they're gonna need a bigger force than UAV's.
>>38052715I'm not saying multirole is useless, but the way the f-35 does it, it's barley an upgrade from our current 40 year old hardware. Sure it's got added stealth, but it's way to expensive. It's trying to do too many things, for too many people. It's all compromise.
>>38052832>Be show. Let them know exactly who they're messing with.
>>38052832>>Be efficient. Take it out quickly.no need to show off and attract unwanted attention on a simple CAP
>>38052832>>Be show. Let them know exactly who they're messing with.Style all over them.
>>38052789Oh really? This is coming from the plane that couldn't fly supersonic and take of VTOL.
>>38052832>>Be efficient. Take it out quickly.We Belkin.
>>38052832>Be efficient. Take it out quickly.Of course, we already have the BE POLITE and HAVE A PLAN TO KILL EVERY ONE YOU MEET down pat.
>>38052832>Be efficient. Take it out quickly.Not worth the effort, really.
>>38052715No. The Marines caused the F-35 to be worse than it could possibly have been.Look at it this way. Despite the hate between the two branches, for the most part fighters and ground ponders from both can be built well along the same lines. Big engines, strong frame, kickass avionics. But when you throw V/STOL into the mix and tie the entire program basically to the fate of that particular section, which I might add is not an easy thing to do when a plane is designed from the ground up for that, you make the project so big that it can't fail, and also have to make design sacrifices.What they should have done is had two separate programs. One belonging to the Navy and Air Force, one to the Marines. If you want to, you can share engines or avionics or whatever. Then, if you ran into a problem with either section, you don't bring down a big giant program spanning your entire military. Plus, each individual program would more than likely deliver better results.Granted, it's debatable whether the marines actually need their own aircraft.
>>38052832>Be efficient. Take it out quickly.Ger- er, Belkan efficiency.
>>38052453>QAAMsGood 'ol QAAMS, bullshit when you need them, and when you don't!Fuck NTDM QAAMshitters
>>38052923Of course. The STOVL design did cause some compromises. However, as you said, it only made it worse than it possibly could have been. One still needs to remember, despite not being all that it could be, it is still a very good aircraft. Once it reaches FOC, it'll probably be the best multirole on the planet.
>>38052975Additional things to remember, the B variant did not fuck up the A and C variants too badly.
>>38052832>>Be show. Let them know exactly who they're messing with.Burn them with afterburner!
>>38052832>>Be show. Let them know exactly who they're messing with.catch it in our jetwash or something
Man, I wish we can fly a shit plane again, like a Skyhawk or something.Also, apparently the Skyhawk was still part of the Ace Combat roster in AC2.
>>38052993Yeah it did, not only did it delay their production by half a decade or more, it also being a fucking retarded requirement of the same program meant both the A and C had to be built around the B frame which means they couldn't be optimized for their roles.Sure they are great, but compared to what they should be? Fucking nothing at all, and over budget and schedule by several orders of magnitude.
>>38052993Because it was designed that way.This is hard to explain because there's not really a project that you can point to and say "LOOK! This is MUCH better. We should have done this" but imagine what the Navy and Air Force could have done if STOVL wasn't a requirement.
>ACQ thread>Arguments about the F-35>AnotherNormalDay.png
>>38053217Merc Started it.
>>38053217I'm amazed there was no blood over the F-15/Su-27 purchase though.
>>38053259Most people were happy with either choice really. Plus we have a lot of Ace Combat Zero fans in here and nobody will turn down going more Pixy.
>>38053259We'll get Dad's Flanker or rebuild one like it later on, don't worry.
>>38053101>>38053106Seeing as it was designed from the get go with VTOL in mind, as well as the power projection VTOL provides, your best argument would be that the A and C should be on a different airframe. However, imagine how much more time and money that would have cost. Just look at the single purpose F-22. These things are insanely expensive even for just a single type. There are time and budget overruns. Another program would effectively double the cost, for not too much gain. Further, by purchasing fewer F-35s you drive up the unit cost of the F-35B by a prohibitive amount, as the program cost is not spread out over as many aircraft. It's what happened to the B-2 and, to a lesser degree, the F-22.>>38053259I'm still astonished at that bit.
>>38052832You don't really do anything fancy. You just line up the UAV in your gunsights and fire off a quick one second burst from your cannon. The gun barks for a moment, spitting a handful of rounds at the UAV, but that's all it needs. The UAV breaks apart under the assault, the pieces falling like leaves."Pffft, boring." You hear Amy snort."It got the job done, didn't it?" You reply coolly. "Awwww, this is no fuuuun!" Lara whines. "I want something to happen already!""You should know the saying, Lara, be careful what you wish for..." Lilian says cautiously. "Head up, girls, I'm picking up a distress signal on the emergency band. Apparently there's an independent mining facility under attack by OB forces." Loki interrupts. "Oh, this might be a problem.""What?" You ask."The signal's originating from an area very close to Dahl airspace." Loki warns. "If you head into that area, you might provoke a response from them.""What sort of opposition are we talking about here?" Amy asks."Mostly ground forces, with helicopter support." Loki responds. "No sign of fighters or other aircraft in the immediate area.">It's not worth the risk.>We'll take the risk.>Other
>>38053259If I could have gotten more people for it, I would have gone to the mat for a Tomcat.I stand by my position that Eagles are boring.

>>38053311>We'll take the risk.Angels inbound!
>>38053472We're likely going to upgrade to the S/MTD and then get the Black Widow after that.
>>38053463"Loki?""Yes, Valk?""Have you ever think to change your insignia?""Whats wrong with it?""We have to suppress the urge to shoot at it whenever we see you" "...that explain many things, actually."
>>38053482Seconding that S/MTD upgrade, but what exactly makes the YF-23 a better choice than the F-22?
>>38053515AND HERE WE GO AGAIN
>>38053515Alternative fighter, I guess?People here seem to like the relatively obscure planes
>>38053515The YF-23 was faster, more stealthy, and had superior avionics by far. The F-22 had maneuverability and the possibility of a naval variant.
>>38053557I'm serious, or even a PAK-FA? They're all Stealth Fighters, and we're prioritizing Mobility and Speed aren't we? Why not go with it if we don't give a fuck about Stealth?
>>38053573The PAK-FA doesn't look like it'll have a substantial edge over the F-22 in anything but avionics. The F-22 badly needs upgraded avionics.
F-22 Raptor>I wanna be MobiusF-23 Black Widow>Sexier RaptorPAK-FA>because Merc didn't give us Berkut.And Merc, did you receive my Email?
>>38053561the Black Widow was actually a better dogfighter, the Raptor more a BVR fighter.
>>38053674>Because Merc didn't give us Berkut.Damn Straight, if the Berkut was available I think we'd all be pulling for that.
>>38053573>Why not go with it if we don't give a fuck about Stealth?Because the PAK-FA is a piece of utter shit, and the Black Widow is leagues ahead of it in every aspect.
>>38053681You've got that reversed. The F-22 was chosen because it was more maneuverable and better in a dogfight. The reasoning behind this was that stealth would push down engagement ranges, so a confrontation between two stealth fighters would be a dogfight rather than BVR.The Black Widow having superior avionics and speed point to superior BVR performance.
>>38053692Nope, YF-23 a best.
>>38053706>The reasoning behind this was that stealth would push down engagement ranges, so a confrontation between two stealth fighters would be a dogfight rather than BVR.U wot m8? they built the raptor purely for BVR, it was another Vietnam saga where they completely ignored dogfighting and wanted to slap longrange missiles on it.
>>38053396I wonder.>>38053311"We'll take the risk." You say. "Just give us a heads up if you see anything incoming.""Roger that. Good hunting, Wild Cards." Loki says.Your flight then vectors farther north, past Atlas' northern boundary and into the contested space that lay between the three corps' territories. Out here, it was truly the Wild West, with the small independent groups out here trying to strike it rich in these barren sands, and braving both the elements and those that would try to take advantage of them. "Down there! Eleven o' clock!" Lilian calls out.You turn your head to see the telltale signs of tracers flitting back and forth. Plumes of dust and sand signified vehicles on the move, as darker columns of smoke rose from what looked like a walled complex built into the side of a large hill."-I repeat, this is Daybreak Point, we need immediate assistance!" You hear a scratchy voice screaming over an open channel. "We're under attack by bandits!"Bandits, One Belka, you suppose they could be pretty synonymous out here."Daybreak Point, this is Wild Card One from Artemis." Lara calls out. "We're here to help. Can you confirm that all hostiles are outside your perimeter?""Yes! Yes!" The panicked voice says. "Everybody's already taking shelter inside! Please, we have women and children with us!""Copy that." You say before keying the radio off. "Amy? It's time to do your thing.""Awww yeeesssssss." Amy says with glee."What about us?" Lara asks.>We'll stay on CAP in case any enemy birds come.>Let's take out those helos, at the very least.>Other

She lets loose a burst of cannon fire, peppering both helos and sending them spinning out helplessly to the ground. Meanwhile, you can hear Amy laughing maniacally as she dives into the swarm of light vehicles surrounding the mining facility. Rocket pots shriek and her GAU-8 roars, raining fire and death down upon the hapless ground forces below. Lilian assist by dropping several iron bombs as well, further scattering the ground forces as explosions tear great holes in the ranks.Meanwhile, you dive down and zero in on a pair of Apaches.

>>38054975"We'll stay out here for a little while longer." You say. "We're still good on fuel and ammo.""Roger that. "Wild Cars, this is Irons." You hear your employer over the radio. That was odd, having your client speak directly to you."Sir? What's this about?" You ask."Sorry to spring this on you so suddenly, girls, but we've got a situation." Irons says. "There's a plane that will be exiting Hyperion airspace shortly. Now, it is imperative that this plane leave Hyperion airspace and reach the Pillar safely. Is that clear?""Roger that." Lara says. "What's so special about this plane?""I'm afraid that's classified." Irons says sternly. "Just make sure it gets here.">Come on, we're putting our lives on the line here!>Roger that.>Other
>>38055188>Simply reconstructing them>Not combining the- Oh goddamnit >>38055211 you beat me to it
>>38055217>Roger that."I figured you'd say that, this is going to cost you extra."
>>38055217>Roger that.You know...this situation seems oddly familiar in real life. I just can't put my finger on it....
>>38055217>>Roger that.We can pry on it later.
>>38055217>Roger thatI'm sure we'll figure out what it is when we see it

>>38055217>>Roger that.Haggle for an increase?
>>38055276Karla: "Look at that. How unoriginal, just slapping things together."Other: "I think that's not the problem here, Valk..."
>>38055236Probably something like this:http://youtu.be/TE7YJ7E1ss8?t=4m24s
>>38055286It's an Aigleipnirhengecalibur with Varolac escortsI fail to see a problem
>>38055360Maybe the fact it costs more than the annual GDP of the entire planet?
>>38055360>I fail to see a problemAside of originality, its a problem if it aiming its gun/missile/laser to you.
>>38055381Again, I fail to see the problem. Remember, nations in strangereal have done more with lessHell, Estovakia was practically Afghanistan, and it still built the Estovakian Aerial Fleet>>38055383See, you get it mangafag. It's the ultimate airborne power projection tool
>>38055383Now is the gun/missile/laser seperate, or are they put together as well as some single macrocosm of a projectile?This is an important question

I am starting to believe OB is a combination of Grey Men, Gauron, and some Erusean moneybags.
>>38055425Forget Detlef Fleisher.That is Ork ultimate dream.
>>38055217"Roger that." You sigh. It's not like this was something that didn't happen. "Let's go."Your flight then heads on a northeast vector towards Hyperion territory. You've been warned ahead of time that Hyperion was much more aggressive in defending its territory than Dahl was, so you had to be wary."Picking up contacts on the radar." Loki announces. "One plane broadcasting a civilian IFF and six Hyperion planes. Possibly Flanker-types."You squint your eyes as you try to look ahead, and sure enough, as you HUD tags them, you can see a small private jet being tailed by six Flanker-Cs, no doubt trying to force it down."All right!" Lara grins. "How are we gonna do this?"You think for a second. You could open up with missiles, so you could engage them sooner and try to catch them by surprise. However, there was always the risk of accidentally hitting the civilian plane. Maybe you should go in for guns instead?>Missiles>Guns>Other
>>38055462>MissilesWe need to range them first
>>38055462>MissilesShoo away the flies
>>38055462>>MissilesOverwhelming first strike. And did we take the 4AAMs or QAAMs?
>>38055462>GunsOdd that we're being given the choice, so I'll choose guns.
>>38055462>MissilesQAAM should have less risk hitting the civi.
>>38055462>GunsThey might panic and shoot down the jet if their missile warnings go off.
When are we running into Mr. Trogue?
Rolled 3, 9, 5, 10, 5, 6 = 38 (6d10)>>38055462"Let's open up with missiles." You say. "And MAKE SURE you ID your target!""Jeez, what do you think we are, nuggets?" Amy snorts."Yeah, who'd make a stupid mistake like that?!" Lara laughs.There's an awkward silence."...you guys are mean." Lara mumbles."Come on girls, let's focus!" Lilian rallies you. "We're in missile range!">roll 3d10 (AtA roll. You need a 6 or lower.)

>>38053731Small nitpick, you NEVER say "repeat" on a military radio frequency. "Repeat" is a field artillery fire command that means "shoot the last fire mission again the exact same way", so saying it at the wrong time can get people killed.
>>38055696those were civilians calling for help. they dont know or care.
At least we halfed their numbers much better odds now.
>>38055590You're first to fire, your 2 standard missiles and QAAM lancing out to meet the enemy. They streak past the civilian plane and into the Flanker-Cs behind it. You see three planes explode instantly. Another Flanker-C panics and tries to break, only to swerve directly into his wingman, sending both planes tumbling to earth. "Did... did you just take out five planes with three missiles?" Amy coughs."That is quite unprecedented..." Lilian agrees."Niiiiiiice." Lara laughs.You, on the one hand, were very glad that guncams were a thing. You doubt anybody would believe what happened otherwise.Meanwhile, the sixth, and last, Flanker-C immediately pulls a hard 180 degree turn and flees.>Chase him down. >Let him go.>Other
>>38055732>>Let him go.Let him spread tales of our might!
>>38055732>>Let him go.

>>38055892>Brave Sir Robin intensifiesCome on, there's gotta be a cool moniker for Basara as a Round Table ace.Like Crimson Humbucker or something
>>38055732You throttle down, deciding to let the last Flanker-C go. After all, your objective was the civilian bird."Man, you're just way too nice sometimes, Valk." Lara chuckles. "Just letting enemy pilots go like that.""What, would you have chased?" You ask."Nah, it's not really sporting to shoot a guy in the back." "Hey, I could always use the extra cash." Amy grumbles."Magnet, your plane can't even catch up a glacier, much less another plane." Lara snickers."Why you-!""Now girls, I think we should focus on escorting this plane!" Lilian wisely interrupts. The rest of the trip is rather uneventful. Having taken out the pursuit force so quickly, it appeared that Hyperion just didn't have time to regroup by the time you were safely in Atlas airspace. During the entire way, the civilian bird doesn't even speak to you at all, nor does it respond to any of your hails. It just flies straight for the Pillar."Hey Valk, don't you think this bird is a bit... creepy?" Lara whispers, as if they could hear the conversation. "Like, why won't they talk?""Do they have any reason to?""I guess not, but it's kind of the polite thing to do, considering what we did for them!""Well, not everybody is polite." You sigh. (cont)
>>38055947With that, the civilian plane lands at the Pillar without a word, where it's ushered away to a hangar as quickly as possible. Even though you outwardly didn't show any interest, you were still more than a little intrigued at what this plane was about. Well, not like you could do anything about it. After you land and disembark your plane, you find Irons there, ready to greet you again."Good job, Wild Cards!" He smiles warmly. "You have no idea what you've done for us! Oh, I wish I could tell you, and maybe I will someday, but just so you know, you did a damn fine job! And Karla, that missile kill! Oh, that's going on the net tonight!""Um, thanks?" You blink."Well, anyways, good job, girls. You did good, and thanks to getting that plane home, we have BIG projects planned for the future." Irons smiles. "Very big plans."<<MISSION ACCOMPLISHED>>Kills2 AH-64: 300 x 3 = 6005 S-30: 1200 x 5 = 60001 S-30 (disabled): 1200 x .5 = 600Bonus Pay: 10,000Total:17,200Total Treasury: 22,000>And that's it for tonight!
