Transvaal Ministry of Defense Arms Acquisition Program


Recommended Posts


The Ministry of Defense of the Republic of Transvaal is investing in the long term future of its armed forces, beginning with a complete overhaul of the Transvaal Air Force's inventory. With the destruction of the Transvaal Air Force in recent months and the defection of most surviving combat aircraft to the Union of Arctica, the Ministry of Defense is looking to purchase three sets of aircraft. Medium Multi-Role Combat Aircraft (MMRCA), Advanced Air Superiority Aircraft (AASA) and finally Advanced Jet Trainer Aircraft (AJTA).

Bidding will be open to all nations. Bidding contracts should include detailed specifications, combat history and price. The Ministry of Defense is looking to purchase the first flight of aircraft directly and the rest under license in Transvaal.

[b]Medium Multi-Role Combat Aircraft[/b]
Requirements: A medium (referring to cost and size), multiple role aircraft, preferably with multiple packages that can be configured based on air force needs. These aircraft should be capable of suppression of enemy air defense (SEAD), ground attack, and close air support (CAS) missions, while retaining the ability to adequately compete with enemy fighter aircraft in close combat. Bids should be of Generation 4 and higher.

The MoD is looking to purchase 126 aircraft, the first 18 directly from the producer and the rest produced under license.

[b]Advanced Air Superiority Aircraft[/b]
Requirements: Advanced (generation 4.5 and up) air superiority combat aircraft used primarily to achieve local air superiority as well as an interceptor. May be of the same aircraft type as the MMRCA, but in a specific air-to-air combat package.

The MoD is looking to purchase 64 aircraft with the first 10 being bought directly from the producer.

[b]Advanced Jet Trainer[/b]
Requirements: Advanced training aircraft for use by training squadrons that can adequately simulate combat and allow new pilots to get comfortable in air to air combat and flying high speed jet aircraft.

45 aircraft with the option for 25 more.

Cochin Chamber of Commerce offers Transvaal the Jadayu Mk.1 MRCA. Jadayu Mark 1 is the first variant of the Jadayu class of fighters. JM1 is manufactured by Gosree Aeronautics Limited and had been the mainstay of Royal Cochin Air Force. The advanced JM1T or Jadayu Mark 1 Transvaal is a new variant of the JM1 which would be customized for Transvaal purposes incorporating the latest advancements in aviation and defense technologies, making it comparable to the Jadayu Mk2 currently serving in RCAF.

The highly modular JM1 is capable of performing multiple mission types with same aircraft, same flight crew and same ground crew with the change of modular configuration with modular attachments for different combat roles.

Cochin Chamber of Commerce also bids for the Advanced Jet Trainer with is Mig35 Trainer version. The two seat jet trainer would be aptly suitable for initiating an aviator in the realm of high speed jet combat.

The Luftwaffe and its factories offer the Germanic Union models.

[i]Me 2.522 Irminsul (B2 bomber type)
EC 666 Barbarossa (Helicopter)
Me 2.616 Richthofen (Dedicated fighter-interceptor)
Me 2.208 Schwarze Rabe (Also suitable for ground attack)[/i]

The fighters are essentially the same from the VDL and GDR era, with minor enhancements and new names. There is also a flight simulator which supports these aircraft, but can also be programmed (And often is) to support any other aircraft.

All of these aircraft have seen actual combat and have been capable of fulfilling the roles. The Richthofen in particular is known to be somewhat superior to many designs, and equal to the top nations.

However, equipment is only half of the game. We would also like to send, given the opportunity, tactics and strategy specialists. Without excellent training, even these great aircraft would be nothing.

The UFE would like to offer special export versions of our the following units. Special export versions have some slightly older RAM coating than our home versions and have increased anti-piracy measures installed. However they are significantly more powerful than the normal export versions. Additionally our fighters are built to work as part of a combat network. We wonder do you have needs for air command and control assets as well that would dramatically increase our offerings combat efficacy. If you wish to develop your own system, our engineers can work with yours to develop the necessary soft ware.

All fighters built by the UFE are equipped for NBC warfare, and can survive EMP blasts as part of that.

We believe that all these units can fulfill the first two missions. We would recommend the F-68 as your MCR, however it excels at all roles except as a interceptor in air superiority as well due to the restrictions forward sweeping places on the top speed of the aircraft.


Unit Name: F-68 Snow Leopard
Unit Type: Multi-Role Stealth Fighter
Unit Specifications:
Super Cruise: Mach 1.4
Maximum Speed: Mach 1.8
Thrust/Weight Ratio: 1.4
Combat Radius: 800 nmi
Avionics: The F-68 Snow Leopard is equipped with a very powerful avionics package. It has a phased array radar and synthetic aperture radar allowing for long range first look first shot kills. The planes radar is extended beyond either of its competitors to 360 nmi. It is equipped with Electro optical infrared systems with a 110 degree search capability, also wider than either of its competitors and a secondary systems to defeat enemy chaff and other infrared counter measures. Highly resistant to jamming and detection itself, it is also capable of networking in with other craft and satellite for multi-static radar. The unit is capable of tracking up to 48 targets at once and linking that information in with other aircraft. It is equipped with the latest in radar jamming and infrared jamming technology to provide further protection against attack.
Maneuverability: The F-68 is among the most maneuverable sub sonic fighters. Its capability of executing turns with its manuvering canards, swept wing design, and thrust vectoring is as close to perfect as an aircraft can be. This means in evasive action or close range, the F-68's ability is unmatched by any other aircraft currently in the arsenal of the Chinese or their opponents, it is said to enjoy a 3:1 kill ratio over the F-65 in subsonic dogfighting, but not to be as strong in super sonic. The plane of course loses out here in speed, being the slowest by far of the other aircraft in both super cruise and afterburner speeds.
Stealth: The plane is a highly stealth aircraft, although the other designs, particularly the Super Widow can be rightfully considered super stealth, and thus this unit comes out behind. Its body has been shaped for maximum reduction of radar cross section. Its maneuvering canards are computer controlled when not in dog fighter mode, thus removing its principle weakness to detection. The engines on the plane are equipped with thermal and acoustic reduction features further eliminating their detectability.
1 Internal 25 mm Auto Cannon
10 Internal Weapons Bays (4 Short Range Weapons on sides, 6 Internally)[/quote]


Name: F/A-23 'Super Widow'
Unit Type: Multi Role Fighter
After Burner Top Speed: Mach 2.5
Super Cruise Speed: Mach 1.8
Thrust/Weight Ratio: 1.4
Range: 3000 nautical miles
Combat Radius: 1000-1200 nautical miles
Service Ceiling: 22, 000 meters
Electronic Systems: The entire plane acts as a sensor suite providing 360-degree coverage. Employing different types of radar including the latest phased array and synethic aperture system radar systems, which has a low probability of intercept of its own signals and is highly resistant to jamming. The plane is optimized to use both L-Band and X-Band radar signals. The plane is also equipped with an advanced radar-warning receiver designed to detect enemy radar including the phased array systems. The fighter is also equipped with the latest in LIDAR and infrared sensors. Secondary infrared systems have been added to the F/A model not on the F/B model for infrared spectrum which are capable of defeating enemy infrared systems and countermeasures such as chaff, giving it not only a shoot first advantage on the infrared spectrum, but also an accuracy advantage. The plane is equipped with the latest in jamming technology, it is designed to defeat enemy radar systems for deep infiltration missions, and is capable of if it so chooses, transmitting false radar signals using DRFM jamming to give the enemy a misrepresentation of where the plane is.

The plane's computing and tracking power is simply incredible, capable of acting as a miniature AWAC, it can track up to fifty enemy targets between the air and ground on the battlefield and relay them to all assets in the area for interoperable network centric warfare.

Stealth Features:
The shape of the plane is one of the most stealthy in the world of fighters. It exceeds that of all standard shape and canard fighter’s stealth (regardless of tech this was proven true in the test against the F-22 which is stealthier than any canard, and PAK-FA modeled fighters are more similar to the F-22). Its two ruddevators reduce the RCS profile considerably. There are only two large control surfaces as opposed to four. Another RCS reducing feature is the engines. These are mounted in nacelles in the wing that blend gracefully into the wing on the top, and form an extension of the fueslage on the bottom. The larger bottom fuselage lets it pack more missiles and other expendable weapons. The intake duct is angled up and inward to reflect radar beams and keep them from hitting the fast moving compressor face. The intake duct starts on the lower edge of the wing and moves through it onto the top of the wing. This feature can also reduce the RCS signature from a look down-shoot down radar from an aircraft flying overhead. Also reducing the RCS, is the way the leading and trailing edge of all surfaces are angled. All of the leading and trailing edges are angled the same. Therefore, the front of the right wing is parallel to the left wing's trailing edge, and the left section of the nose. For example, the leding edge of the wing is parallel to the trailing edge of the wing on the other side.
The unusual 'diamond' planform of the F/A-23 is a 2 major lobe design, as all major edges fall into groups of two parallels. The result of the low observables techniques was a major reduction in aircraft detectability by radar, and in the F/A-23, also detectability by Infra-Red Search & Track (IRS&T) systems. This will radically shrink the usable envelope of hostile radar guided weapons and in the instance of the F/A-23, also heatseeking weapons. Beyond the plane’s natural stealth features, the plane is equipped with a salt based honey comb Radar Absorbant Material. This greatly reduces the planes detectability further, and is designed to protect against both L-Band and X-Band stealth, and makes ultra high bandwidth radar virtually useless against it. These features combined with state of the art jamming, give the F/A-23 stealth advantages exceeding that of any other aircraft in the world maximizing its ability to engage targets even within the world’s most advanced Anti-Air Defense Networks.

Maneuverability: The F/A-23 is designed for both air to air and air to ground missions. The plane is equipped with thrust vectoring which means that it has less infrared protection than the F/B-23 but it is still exceeding most aircraft and on par with the low detection on most 5th Generation high end fighters that have thrust vectoring. In addition the planes extremely unconventional diamond shape design dramatically increases the instability of the plane and thus the maneuverability. This means that pilots adapting to the F/A-23 will have a hard time getting used to the plane, but once they are used to the plane, it is one of the most agile around, capable of defending itself in a dogfight or evading enemy anti-air weapons, however it is also the most difficult plane to fly.[/quote]


Unit Name: F/A-47-D 'Drake' Sino-Fighter
Unit Type: Stealth Multi-Role Fighter
Unit Specification:
Engine: Dual Turbofan with Thrust Vectoring
Crew: 1
Speed: Mach 2.2
Super Cruise: Mach 1.86
Thrust Weight Ratio: 1.26
Thrust Weight Ration Empty: 1.4
Combat Radius: 1000 nmi, 2000 nmi with external tank
Range: 2, 400 nmi , 4200 nmi with external tank
Service Ceiling: 30, 000 feet

The Sino-Fighter’s entire body is a radar system for its active phased array radar. It provides 360 degree lock on coverage. The Sino Fighter’s radar has a 290 nmi range, and is configured for high bandwidth across multiple band lengths, including newer used bands. Sino Fighters as with all Chinese fighters network together to share information and can in groups form a multi-static radar. The plane also has synethic apeture radar to provide high resolution radar imaging of the battlefield. It is equipped with forward infrared electronic-optical sensors which allow for 90 degrees of forward long range detection on the infrared spectrum giving it the ability to engage targets even with stealth on multiple bandwidths and get the first shot. It is capable of networking with space based radar to help detect enemy radar so that it can adjust its own sensors towards "blank spots" or work with other fighters to use multi static detection to find the enemy aircraft and either engage with specialized radar seeking missiles, infrared missiles, or autocannon depending on strength of stealth.

Beyond the difficulty of its own radar to jam, the Sino-Fighter features a built in ECM suite which is capable of jamming enemy radar and disrupting missile lock-ons to other units (or itself if they manage to break its stealth. Its sensors are also well attuned to detect enemy radar including phased array radar, both for evasion and engagement purposes. It is equipped with a new ECM system which had increased processing power. Its ability to flood enemy spectrum with false information made it further resistant to detection, and in fact was capable of emitting false data on its distance to target to the enemy radar operator causing them to scramble forces in the wrong area of a battle space should that be tactically preferable to avoiding detection entirely. The secondary EO system serves as a filter against IR countermeasures employed by a target aircraft - the seeker is capable of rejecting deployed flares by cross-referencing data regarding UV and optical wavelength emissions with the IR component. The plane itself was equipped with directional infared countermeasures as well as the standard suite of infrared countermeasures.


Being a multi-role fighter, strike missions are included in its profile. While less stealthy than the F-23 due to its maneuvering canards, its stealth is quite considerable. The entire body is a stealth shaped, except when hard points are mounted externally. Canards remain locked in place and computer controlled to minimize RCS profile except while in combat. With the upgraded computer processor power on the D-bloc, the canard stealth program is able to have more processing power allocated to it thus increasing the radar reduction of the craft by 15 percent. The Delta wing shape is slightly diamond shaped to further not only increase maneuverability, but also its stealthiness. It is equipped with an upgraded version of the honey bomb salt radar absorbent material seen in the Lu-67. This material was on par with the RAM on the F/B-23 and B-9, both extraordinarily stealth materials. The plane was thus capable of absorbing material on x-band as well as l-band spectrum and was highly resistant to even the most high output radar. It is equipped with super cruise engines which are given extra protection on acoustic, thermal, and infrared spectrum minimizing alternative detection, including advanced heat sinking to reduce thermal output.

It has an internal gun and internal mounts for six medium sized stand off or air to air munitions.


The Sino-Fighter’s compromise between the diamond and canard design decreases the stability of the aircraft but greatly increases its maneuverability. It’s a relatively light fighter making it highly agile. With its wing design it has a better angle of attack that most conventional shaped aircraft, and its loss of energy is fixed by the existence of maneuvering canards. Thrust vectoring further rounds out this aircraft making it a truly excellent light weight, high maneuverable aircraft. (aka its what the JSF should be).

25 mm Gatling Cannon
8 Internal Weapons Bays (can carry up to 6 weapons usually varied between stand off munitions, anti-radiational missiles, and air to air missiles, can be modified quickly to carry two large bunker busting munitions)
4 Attachable none stealth mounts for 8 external weapons.[/quote]
