Kerbal Arms Race Program

Whatever you want to talk about, for whatever reason. Can't believe you don't want to discuss zombies though... shame on you.

I finally finished up with all my aircraft, though they're really quite boring and unimpressive I think.

Before I show them off, I'd just like to explain really quickly the nomenclature system that goes with all my aircraft. All my jet powered aircraft are organized into various series, starting with the Alpha series and ending with the Foxtrot series. All the aircraft in each series are designed to serve one particular role, except for the Foxtrot series which is where all multi-role aircraft go, though currently that series has no aircraft. I've also paired each series with a particular cardinal sin and each aircraft has an unofficial name given to it by pilots and ground crew.

So, here's a list of everything I've built, along with descriptions and photos of each aircraft.


Alpha Series
Pride
Dedicated fighter aircraft


Alpha-1 (Pride 1)
http://images.akamai.steamusercontent.c ... 60AA71670/
The first aircraft in the Alpha or 'Pride' line of aircraft. The Pride 1 is a light and small fighter. Fast and with excellent roll capacity, it is armed with air-to-air radar and heat-seeking missiles, as well as a 20mm cannon. Known among pilots as the 'Medusa' on account of its multiple wheels and rather rustic look.

Alpha-2 (Pride 2)
http://images.akamai.steamusercontent.c ... 1547ADABD/
The second aircraft in the Alpha or 'Pride' line of aircraft. The Pride 2 design differs heavily from that of its predecessor but maintains the same fast speeds. It is known, however, to have poor yaw capacity as a result of its unique design. Armed with air-to-air radar and heat-seeking missiles and a 20mm cannon, it also has anti-missile countermeasures. Known among pilots as the 'Mako'.

Alpha-3 (Pride 3)
http://images.akamai.steamusercontent.c ... 13EBC341B/
The third aircraft in the Alpha or 'Pride' line of aircraft, the Pride 3 design draws influence from foreign aircraft. It is a particularly stable platform with solid maneuverability. It is fitted with standard a anti-air missile load out and a 20mm cannon. Though currently resigned to the fighter role, there are plans to modify it to be much more versatile, making it the first multi-role fighter in the air force. Known unofficially as the 'Vulture'.


Bravo Series
Gluttony
Dedicated medium and heavy bomber aircraft


Bravo-1
http://images.akamai.steamusercontent.c ... 1A81C542D/
First aircraft in the Bravo or 'Gluttony' line of aircraft, this aircraft is a in fact a civilian design converted to serve as a heavy bomber. The imposing aircraft can carry a hefty bomb load. The bombs can be changed out for guided cruise missiles, and it is also designated as the premier carrier of the nation's nuclear weapons. Known by pilots as the 'Leviathan'.


Charlie Series
Wroth
Dedicated ground-attack aircraft


Charlie-1
http://images.akamai.steamusercontent.c ... 74B653C37/
First aircraft in the Charlie or 'Wroth' line of aircraft, the Charlie-1 is a very capable and much loved ground-attack aircraft. An armored cockpit and countermeasures improves aircraft and pilot survivability in dangerous skies. The Charlie-1 can be armed with a wide variety of ground-attack munitions and comes equipped with a 30mm cannon. Known among pilots as the 'Vampire'.


Delta Series
Lust
Dedicated interceptor aircraft


Delta-1
http://images.akamai.steamusercontent.c ... AD84FA287/
First aircraft in the Delta or 'Lust' line of aircraft, the Delta-1 is a high-speed, high-altitude interceptor. Meant to engage bombers and their escorts, the Delta-1 bears a full load of air-to-air missiles and two 20mm cannons. The aircraft is one of the fastest in the fleet, but is known to spiral out of control when maneuvering too violently to either side. It is an aircraft that only the most well trained pilots can fly, pilots who refer to it as the 'Viper'.


Echo Series
Envy
Dedicated reconnaissance/observation aircraft


Echo-1
http://images.akamai.steamusercontent.c ... E99BC4E01/
First aircraft in the Echo or 'Envy' line of aircraft, the Echo-1 is the fastest jet-powered aircraft in the air force. The Echo-1 has no offensive armaments. It's only defense is its capability to engage its flare countermeasures, climb to high in the mesosphere and throttle up to a speed of Mach 3.5. It is equipped with high-resolution live-video and photographic cameras to fulfill its ground observation and reconnaissance role. Alternatively, it can also be equipped for the electronic warfare role, with rumors that a nuclear capable variation exists. Known as the 'Owl'.


Foxtrot Series
Greed
Multi-role aircraft

You're definitely better at naming and organization than I am lol, although you'll need some ground forces if your army is to stand up to mine.

First off, here's Cerberus, named because of the three sets of three main weapons. It sacrifices almost all armor in order to carry more weaponry, but it's also run by a drone so it's not a HUGE loss if one's destroyed.

Mosquito Mk2, this variant is prop driven and while significantly slower, is much more maneuverable while being just as well armed as its jet powered brother.
Image

Another variant on my Ci-Jet, the Bi-Jet is a dedicated ground attack aircraft.
Image

My Expeditionary Mk3. This variant is designed purely for space combat, armed with three lasers, a complement of KV missiles and, obviously, a set of rockets to get it into orbit without sacrificing any of its own fuel to get there.
Image
Image

Dragonfly Mk1, a helicopter gunship capable of surprising speed and distance, armed with 4 .50 caliber turrets and one 30mm turret, alongside a small compliment of bombs.
Image

Dragonfly Mk2 or Super Dragonfly, this much beefier version is slightly slower, however in exchange it has a much more impressive array of weaponry including more bombs and a handful of missiles.
