German Aviation Perspective (List of aircraft)


Considering that the German Air Force is in a deplorable state, and the equipment to add it is getting smaller and smaller, I propose to create a list of weapons that can appear in the German development branch for ranks VII, VIII, and so on.

It is important that the list will be from German aircraft and helicopters, as well as projects in which Germany participated or equipment that makes sense of existence for other countries (For example, Argentina)

Will be completed a little later


We need this.


well there is a bit more f15 and f/a 18 versions then i was aware of, many salty people will not want them, could you add the reasoning where they got tested /evaluated ?

A little later I will add and correct everything, as I see some links do not work for some reason

With a lot of luck we could get a Polish F16C this update, i hightly doubt it. That would be to nice of gajin, but one can never stop hopping

damn i remembered Germany gets Argentinian vehicles so the jeff is also up for grabs!

Small correction: Its Lockheed Martin A-4AR Fightinghawk. Not Skyhawk.


Fixed, thanks

Germany definitely needs a little love on its air TT.

Note: The US government approved the sale of F-16A/B MLU B.15 and some B.10 to Argentine

I wanted to correct something, Argentina never operated Etendard. Only SUE and SEM.

Also thinking about rank VI, you could add some variants of A-4 (P, Q and C) and the IA.e 33 Pulqui II, very necessary between 8.3 and 9.3. Maybe some Canberra.
Also in rank VII Mirage IIIEA, IIICJ or Mirage V Mara.

Pampa 2000


@_Fleks I know that fighter aircraft from Hellenic it’s very good but not sure greece maybe sub tree for germany ?

Alpha Jet A 80’s better Alpha Jet A basic ?

Added, called F-16AM

Need some information on this then and are there any pictures so I can attach them to the listing?

While here is a list of the highest ranks (VII, VIII), the planes you named are lower than those named above. In the future, I’ll somehow make a list of mid-rank jets, but then

I did not include French planes, since they are not needed on the German tree. At the same time, players who play on French equipment will whine if I add

Considering that almost all of Greece’s weapons are German, and the latter is also modernizing Greece’s equipment, then yes

Which was modernized in the 80s, much better than the basic one, if only because of the flares

There are no images, because we never had Étendard.

I know, they are for rank VI. As a German principal I will tell you that we also need planes there. Pulqui II, for example, is designed by Germans in Argentina.
Although your search is oriented to the top level, that sub TT should solve the intermediate ranks as well (since the post-war).

I understand, perhaps Mirage IIIEA (Argentina exclusive variant, modified in the country) could be a squad vehicle.

As I said, I will consider creating a list for the middle rank a little later if it is not done sooner

Yes, in principle it is reasonable. I’ll look at the information about him in more detail, and if anything happens, he’ll appear on the list

I understand, actually my confusion comes from seeing the Pampa on the list. Pampa and Alpha Jet should not be on those lists. They are rank VI vehicles.


IRIS-T air-surface




God I hope they add the F20 and F15…


Here’s hoping we see something.

No Mi-24D? This is the hind that being widely used in NVA
