it's a gunfighter and yours has 4 AIM-120s.

 I'll also enter the PLFP-II-3 in that category then, to add some competition.

Just replace two of the AMRAAMS by Sidewinders, or don't and let me do it later today. I'm very busy right now.

@MiffedStarfish I'm not entirely sure about your rules. How many/what guns are we allowed? Also how big is the competition range going to be?

I don't know, but I'm entering a craft into that category anyway, Fighter 5: https://kerbalx.com/53miner53/Fighter-5

Also, I'm updating Fighter 2 so it includes missles before it's used in the main category: https://kerbalx.com/53miner53/Fighter-2

And I would like to post an update to Fighter 3 here: https://kerbalx.com/53miner53/Fighter-31

Sorry, I should have been more clear. I'm about to run a load of fights, currently it's my MiG vs the F-10 Striker, then the victor of that fighting the PLFP II 3, then the victor of that fighting Fighter 5, then the victor of that fighting the Cessna 680, then the victor of that fighting the Spitfire II.

sorry @NotAnAimbot, your plane isnt showing up in the SPH. I edited the version and everything, but its just not working. Im going onto @53miner53s Fighter 5 for now.

Doh. I was putting it in the wrong save.

I'd be interested to see a guns-only category, probably just with old-style propellor planes

Oops, aircraft engagement was disabled on my GAU. Just realized that now.

Still, consider this a new entry. The AIM-9s were also added to replace AIM-120s.

Updated at 9h30 EST for final version of PLFP-II4. I considered adding an airbrake, but will probably keep that for the PLFP II-5

If you guys are interested, this is the PLFP-I (Just known as F-13 PLFP) and the bigger model next to it is the PLFP-III (A beefed up "naval" F-2F+)

They were both designed to replace the F-2F+ as a light/medium fighter, and the PLFP-II just borrowed the series name.

I didn't do anything today. I was playing war thunder.

No, I don't think so. Does it matter? If it makes a big difference, I'll rerun the dogfights.

I've deleted my 1.2, but if everyone is on it, I will go downloaded it again. 

There are some differences, gun power are buffed and missiles have longer range in BDA for KSP 1.3, but usually not enough to significantly affect the outcome.

 

Edit: I'd like to enter with my MiG-21, it's built in 1.3.

How big? Every plane I ran was built in 1.2.2, so none of them had any advantages by being built in the version it was used in.

New airframe of mine, does it look a little bit too sci-fi? Or are delta wings fine?

I built it specifically to counter the MiG-21, it has a little bit less radar profile than the PLFP.

, it's the proposed delta wing F-16

Not really, I have my own naming series for my planes and 16 happened to be the next number available (although I forgot that I never issued the F-15 designation.)

F1 is a MiG-21 like plane, F-2 to 4 are available in my old repository, F-5 is a VTOL prototype, 6 an interceptor, 7 a competition plane, 8 a large ASF, 9 will be the PLFP-III 10 is a naval fighter, 11 an unreleased prototype, 12 a SEAD/EW plane, 13 the PLFP-I and 14 a fighter-bomber.

There's a lot of lag in the latest one.

That F-18 was a replica converted into a dog fighter, so it's something like 260 parts. Interested to see the Spitfire II fight soon.
