The design is a lot better although far from perfect. The plane still pulls way too much AoA to be stable even with the AI although to fix it the changes are quite minor. Just pulling the wings back a little and disabling engine gimbal made the plane suprisingly competetive. You should try messing around with it untill you get satisfactory results. The AI optimizations are and arent quite there. The Idle speed is way too low (mine is set at max speed without afterburner), the high AoA setting only compounds on the stability problems but otherwise they are roughly fine random as they may seem. 

Also the AI doesnt know how to use different guns. You should have either 20mm's or 50 cal's.

Cheers I will update it when I can

Well the MK1 is screwed pretty much so here is the improved version aka Mk2 but the Mk1 can be a good naval fighter tho with low stall speed and other stuff. The Mk1 was rushed so it will fail badly but would be a good naval fighter with some stuff upgraded

 

But here is the Mk2 version with improved stuff

The Mk2 of MiV - 45:

At this point its pretty good. I can only tell you to perhaps increase the AoA a bit (the standard 35 is fine for most things) and I'd decrease the min speed as 140 is a bit high. Enabling engine gimbal on the current design should be fine.

Cough cough how much ECM did you spam to get that close?

Cough Cough 1, but it wasn't active due to the AI Pilot, the plane is stealthy Cough Cough

Welp Mk1 is pretty much screwed so can you tell me now?

Well basically, I am extremely busy (unprecedented work, I'm sorry), so the review post must go to tomorrow.

I'm sorry I just got slapped with a large piece of work

Do military drones count?

Yes, as a UAV.

Cough cough no stealth module cough cough

Cough cough then the AI probably turned the ECM on as you're not getting into aim-9 range from 15km without the AI firing atleast a few radar missiles unless you have no radar. Nevermind that trying to cross those 8 something kilometers without firing back would be quite lethal.

I have a question: can I sumbit wthout BDA or similar? my computer can't handle it but I think I have two planes that could be good.
(maybe someone could tell me if they work good with weapons?)
The first is my K-99 designed as an air superiority fighter with a top speed of 900 m/s (if you don't get reentry level heating you are not fast enough)

It is amazingly manuveurable and has a very quick take off and acceleration so it can somewhat double as an interceptor it could probably carry a lot of missiles since it has very good twr.

I also have another plane called the KARU-22 mostly designed for reconaissance and intercepting small targets It has a very quick take off making it carrier suitable when you don't have anything better.

Did I seriously forgot to sumbit the second plane download?
