Late 60s Design Contest by Birdfarm 2

Post by QueenAstrid »

28/8/1962
Due to the ever-increasing threat from hostile ground forces, it has been decided that within NATO we are to look at the selection of an aircraft to meet this threat. The aircraft needs to be capable of both battlefield and deep interdiction out to a range of 300 nautical miles from its home base with a loiter time over the target of 10 minutes. The selected aircraft will need to be capable of both conventional and nuclear strike. The weapons chosen will need to meet NATO standards and the nuclear armament needs to be both the B57 and WE117 with both having weights of 500lb. It has been decided that the aircraft is to carry twin 30mm or 20mm cannon with them being either the ADEN or M39 revolver cannon respectively. The designer will have to decide on the exact armament capability but it must be noted that the aircraft must retain a short/rough field capability due to war time constraints on the use of airfields. There is no requirement at this time for the aircraft to be supersonic although there is nothing limiting it from being so. The unit flyaway cost will be between 1 and 2.5 million USD including the engine. A prototype is expected to be ready before the middle of 1968 with a fly off occurring the following year.
A basic three-view design is to be ready before the 29/09/2017 with a full flying model to be ready before 11/11/2017

Models will be to the previous Birdfarm standard (HQP:GAC is also the same principles)

Actually no. It's the NBMR-3 requirement for a G.91and F-104 replacement with the VTOL requirements removed.

So, aircrafts from 1860–1967 allowed or not?

The point of this is to design a new airplane, not use one that existed.

What he said. Although extensive modifications of existing designs are accepted and partially encouraged the point is not to just take an aircraft and paint it. If anything as many if not more points are given to the thought put into the design as are given for the actual model. The point here is to design an aircraft in a sensible way. Not stupidity and all such entries would be excluded immediately.

Will you be able to make a model in time for the other competition deadlines? If not there is no prohibition against working in a group.
