[COMPETITION] Maritime Patrol Aircraft

Post by Welshy » Sun Nov 19, 2017 4:29 am

27/10/1987

NATO Maritime Operations Working Group

It has been decided by a group of our member states that we are to seek a Request for Proposals relating to a new class of littoral maritime patrol aircraft. This aircraft must be capable of operating for two hours on station when 250nm from its base and be equipped to take on both Diesel-Electric Submarines and also small surface craft. The primary operating locations for this aircraft have been deemed to be similar to the Baltic, Mediterranean and Persian Gulf areas and therefore this aircraft is not intended to be a replacement for existing Blue-Water Maritime Patrol Aircraft such as the Nimrod or P-3.

Therefore, the member states have asked that prospective entrants consider the following:
  • Short Take Off and Landing performance
  • Ability to accurately track submarines whilst submerged
  • A mix of both depth bombs and Anti-shipping missiles
  • Ability to carry 2 Short-Range Air to Air Missiles for self defence
  • Use of off the shelf components in order to minimise costs (although this should not detract from advanced entries to the competition)
Entrants must consider that the first flight of the aircraft is scheduled for 1990 with entry into service no later than 1994.

--------------------------------------------

YSFlight Related Things
  • The entry should conform with Birdfarm guidelines as per the previous contest
  • Either sonobuoy deployment or an advanced sonar usage
  • The modding of the weapons is not required and we hope to have some weapons capable to be added to the aircraft to simulate the asthetic
  • Proposals should be submitted no later than 31/12/2017 with a flyable model no later than 14/02/2018 (All Dates are World Format not US)
  • The initial proposal should consist of a three view of the aircraft alongside some basic facts about the aircraft and the flyable model should be accompanied by a blurb regarding the aircraft and its development.
  • Points will be awarded for more detailed proposals and although the detail will not be a large factor it will never the less be considered when the decision is made.

I'm excited for the variety that this competition can generate. Rotary and fixed wing platforms both could fill the role

ARMAMENT
To satisfy the program requirements, a selection of NATO-standard weapons shall be integrated into the P-4A upon initial release to service; currently scheduled for 1994. The wide availability of these weapons will enable the P-4A to quickly enter front-line service using existing weapons stockpiles.
WEAPONS & STORES:
AIR-TO-GROUND WEAPONS
• GBU-12 or PW4 - 500lb class Laser Guided Bomb.
• Mk 81 250lb class bomb
o LGB kits are potentially available for such weapons.
AIR-TO-AIR WEAPONS
• AIM-9L/P/M Sidewinder IR Missile
o NATO standard by Mid-Seventies were the AIM-9L/P missiles, but the US would have the AIM-9M widely available by the early 1990s.
AIR-TO-SURFACE WEAPONS
• AGM-84 Harpoon – Medium range air-launched cruise missile.
• AGM-65 Maverick – Short-range air-launched guided missile.
ANTI-SUBMARINE WEAPONS
• Mk.46 Mod 5A Torpedo
o NATO Standard weapon with shallow-water modifications. First deployed in 1989.
OTHER STORES
• 100 Flares/Chaff for distracting IR and Radar guided missiles.

That's a serious aircraft there! Looks really cool. I like the soviet influences!

EDIT:

Okay here's a 3-view of my WIP model as it stands now.

The posting for this contest was posted on November 18th. Per the first post, the deadline for having a proposal design (could be a rough sketch of the plane with some general performance information of the proposed plane) for this contest was due on December 31st. The deadline for having a working model of the plane is due by February 14th. Don't worry though! There will be another design competition after this competition is over!

Welshy could correct me if I am wrong on any of these points.

Here's my concept. Doesn't have weapons yet as it's just the model for now. I'll have a DAT at some point.

RB-61 Proteus. I may change it if it doesn't conform to numerical standards.

Kinda disappointed no one came up with something along these lines, not this exact design of course but the general concept.

@Gunny I loosely based the RB-61 on the P6M. Mine is supposed to land on water and runway sorta like a mix of the US-1A.
