Turn rate is under 6 seconds.

Should avoid AMRAAM's without a sweat.

Six seconds is.....quite slow....  .-.

It is still fast. Any more quicker would just bleed too much energy, since this is an attacker and not an ASF.

Is Tweakscale (used for wheels) allowed?

Yes.

Also, would anyone be interested in a badge for this? One for aircraft, one for ground. I have a couple designs if we have any takers.

Yes.

In that case, I'd like to contribute Paladin. It is one of the oldest military vehicles I have made, dating all the way back to Generation One, when my planes had the turn radius of small planets. (Current craft are Gen3). It's armed with an Oerlikon, but requires a fuel cell. (Just slap one on and activate upon launch. The thing literally has tons of fuel in it).

A badge would be cool, yes :D

Would you guys recommend fixed guns in a realistic sort of style, or turrets for the airplanes?

Hi,

I've got some AA tanks for you to lend-lease. Please return them in good order after you're done.

I'll need to patch them up before I can upload them, they're not used in a while, but they should be ideal for this; I've designed them with a similar challenge in mind.

Same here. I would do some videos of prelims, but CAD software is a heavy burden to bear at the moment.

I'd also like to enter for the Aircraft part of the competition. I have a ground attack aircraft that hasn't really been tested in that way and I'd like to try it out.

I'll bump my A-15 from the list to make room for you this round.

Also, pick one of you AA platforms and I'll add it to the list there as well.

Coolio, I'll get them ready. Have to fix BD Armory first to see whichever AA-tank is best :)

Well, your triple-A vehicle was good... but not good enough. See, by dumb luck, my A-26 Intruder finished off 2 of them alone in a 1v3.

Did you make sure to Spacebar and throttle up the MUVAs in your test? I tried on my end,  Intruder's bombs and missiles were not able to hit moving MUVAs.

@AlexClark Also an update which fixed how the previous version gets spawned sideways in the Vessel Mover menu, added some ammo as well.

Err, I thought I came up with a better design but after some more testing it seems that its early successes were due to luck.

I'll be putting in overtime tomorrow on testing, had a RAM slot die on the work rig today. Luckily the rig at home is the same model just stock. I'll be swapping components tomorrow morning and resume testing then.

I swapped Goal Keeper with Oerlikon and had a few amazing test rounds against the intruder, so I got excited and made a post, but turned out Goalkeeper is still better. 

Also, did you run your Intruder tests with my MUVAs on evasive maneuvers? In my tests of 3 Goalkeeper MUVA vs 3 Intruders, the Intruders were not able to hit the moving MUVAs with missiles or bombs.

I almost don't test moving land vehicles, since I didn't really know if they could actually move and not confuse that with flying.

Does AI actually fire rockets? it never did for me, so maybe swap those for bombs.

It fire the Hydra turrets, but not the other ones, I don't think.
