Hello, this is a thread to post what ROCAF or PLAAF aircraft could be improved with historical weaponry and what’s wrong with current aircraft. This is to pool information and gain interest so materials for reports can be gathered.
Also what aircraft/ variants you want to see in the game for either the ROCAF or PLAAF lines.
Aircraft that could have improvements (I’ll mainly be posting about ROCAF)
Hawk III - 1 x 0.50 cal in place of a 7.62
V-11 - internal bomb rack?, 20 x 14kg bombs
F-84G & F-86F- Napalm
F-104G- 2000lb bomb, various LAU rocket launchers, AIM-9P4, CD-1 chaff diespenser
F-16A MLU- AIM-9P4 for stock missiles
You guess dev consider upgrade F-16A Block 20 MLU in tech tree add 2 LANTIRN pods (AN/AAQ-19 Sharpshooter targeting pod & AN/AAQ-20 Pathfinder navigation pod), GBU-10/GBU-12 Paveway II, AIM-9P replace by AIM-9P4, AIM-9M replace AIM-9L, AGM-65G-2 Maverick & AIM-120 AMRAAM after Q2 this year ?
In game they can be most likely referred to as F-CK-1C (early) and F-CK-1C.
Only main difference being conformal fuel tanks for the F-CK-1C (early). This one can be a squad, event or premium vehicle. Or can also go in the the tech tree under a folder since gaijin is more pro foldering now.
