The primary goal of OPRF is realistic military aviation with an emphasis on combat. The aircraft in the OPRF fleet must meet certain criteria to uphold this goal. If a plane does not meet any of these criteria, it will not be eligible. Planes that are already in the fleet but do not comply will have one month to rectify any issues before being removed from the fleet roster.


* Real-world military application. In order to be included, a plane (or it's closest real-world analogue if the plane is fictional) must have been used by a real-world military at some point in history. For instance, a Cessna 172 is ineligible, but a Cessna T-41 (with appropriate liveries and engines) would be.
* FDM's must be as realistic as possible. We will not discount planes on whether they are based on YASim or JSBSim. If the plane is fictional, it must be reasonable based on the plane's intended role and real-world analogues. Things to look out for are maximum height, maximum speed at varying heights, acceleration, lowest stable speed, maximum and minimum G, cornering speed, and fuel consumption.
* Damage code must be taken from this repository location. It is important to verify that systems fail correctly, especially engines in YASim-based planes.
* Radar code must not be able to see through terrain. See the Viggen or the MiG-21bis as examples. In addition, radar code must also factor in notching if applicable, and RCS. In other words, make radar real.
* Missile guidance code must be taken from this repository location, or the derivatives found on the F-14b, F-15, or Mirage 2000. It must be kept up to date.
* Weapons code must be the standard OPRF weapons code (if applicable), and the weapons should be affected by flares and chaff.
* Blackout and redout are required.

Current aircraft not in compliance:

FDM is not accurate enough, specifically it's top speed at low altitudes (and possibly it's climb rate?)

Eurofighter Typhoon
Guided missile code needs updating. This will be very nasal-intensive. It would probably be easier to do a full JSBSim conversion and write a new payload script for it.

RC-137R and EC-137R
Right most screen of the radar view can see through mountains.

About the RC/EC we will remove the screen for now and maybe a new radar system in canvas might be introduced to replace the current one.
E-8R has a ground-pointing radar, so maybe that can be left but yet improved.
Breakin' the sound barrier everyday!
Peace through superior AIRPOWER

The RC and EC -137R no longer contain this screen, as it seems to have failed ;)

Kind Regards,
