In 2018 we asked you to design a fighter aircraft, your entries were brilliant.

Now it’s 2019 and we have a new contest for you. Your concept will be judged by an expert panel on effectiveness, originality and aesthetics. Submission deadline: August 30th 2019.

Submission should take the form of no more than 4 illustrations or diagrams (one is fine) and a small amount of text to explain the type.

Choose one of the following design briefs:

Requirement 560

Design a fighter aircraft using only technology available in 1970. The aircraft must have a range of at least 400 nautical miles. It must have a minimum top speed over Mach 1.8. It should carry at least one cannon and four air-to-air missiles. The type should have a good dogfighting performance.

Requirement 570

Design a fighter-bomber aircraft using only technology available in 2019.  The aircraft must have a range of at least 400 nautical miles. It must have a minimum top speed over Mach 1.6. It should carry at least one cannon and four air-to-air missiles/and/or 7000kg of munitions.. The type should be relatively cheap to build, easy to maintain, and a short development period.

Requirement 680

Design a supersonic civil passenger aircraft using only technology available in 2019. Minimum top speed 1000mph. Range 2500 miles. 100 passengers plus reasonable baggage. Extra points awarded for economy of operation and lower noise levels.

Requirement 750

Design a close support aircraft using only technology available in 1985. Minimum top speed 400mph. Must capable of carrying at least 5000kg of munitions and carry internal gun. Must be low-cost, highly resistant to ground-fire and have minimal ground support requirements. STOL or rough-field capability a plus.

Requirement 760

Design a fighter aircraft using only technology available in 1938. The aircraft must be a capable dogfighter. Armament is to be four cannon. Aircraft must have a top speed higher than 380mph, be easy to repair and maintain and offer a high level of battle damage resistance.
