The Daitōjin Aerospace Industry
« on: October 30, 2022, 05:28:51 PM »
THE DAITŌJIN AEROSPACE INDUSTRY

   The Daitōjin Aerospace Industry has thrived since before the Great War. Though it saw difficulties in the late 1940s and early 1950s, during which time the Empire devoted itself to rebuilding, it was revived as cold war-era tensions arose, rising like a phoenix to reclaim its place in a world of giants. Companies such as Aizawa-Shinoda, Zayasu, and Negishi have become well-regarded for their innovative designs and cutting-edge hardware, while newer companies aim to carve their own space in the international market.

   It should be noted that, while the primary focus of this thread is on military aircraft, room has also been made for civilian vehicles, for the discerning customer of course.

J-7O Tora
ManufacturerZayasu
RoleAir Superiority Fighter
Crew2 (Pilot & RIO)
Length19.13 m
Max SpeedMach 2.36 (2,891 km/h, 1,561 kn)
Range3,300 km
Service Ceiling16,000 m
ArmamentGuns: 1 × 20 mm M61A1 6-barreled rotary cannon, with 675 rounds
10 × hardpoints, 7,000 kg capacity
Other CapabilitiesCan operate off of carriers
LITENING targeting pod capable
Cost$38 million
BackgroundThe J-7O is an upgrade of the baseline J-7, which in turn was a Daitōjin-produced variant of the Tytorian AS-51 Cobra. The J-7O is indeed the same airframe as the baseline J-7, however,
it has been heavily upgraded, notably making use of J-110-UT-129 turbofan engines, upgrades of the already in-use J-110-UT-400s, to grant the vehicle the ability to supercruise without
afterburner at around Mach 1.3 and providing the aircraft with enough thrust to improve its payload capacity dramatically. The aircraft also features an improved sensor suite, with its
AN/APG-71 radar in particular seeing upgrades. Finally, the aircraft is now capable of carrying more modern weaponry, such as AIM-120 missiles.

J-20 Daitora
ManufacturerZayasu
RoleMultirole Fighter
Crew2 (Pilot & RIO)
Length19.47 m
Max SpeedMach 2.46 (3,014 km/h, 1,628 kn)
Range3,500 km
Service Ceiling17,000 m
ArmamentGuns: 1 × 20 mm M61A1 6-barreled rotary cannon, with 675 rounds
Hardpoints: 4 × interior hardpoints in main weapons bay, 2 × interior hardpoints in secondary bays, 8 × wing-mounted hardpoints, 7,400 kg capacity
Other CapabilitiesLimited stealth characteristics
Engines with Thrust Vector Control
AN/APG-81 AESA
Equipped with EOTS FLIR & IRST
Cost$96.3 million
BackgroundAt a glance, the J-20 may appear to be just a variant of the J-7, however, appearances aside, the two aircraft are entirely different. The J-20 is the culmination of Zayasu's efforts
to modernize the J-7 platform, featuring limited stealth characteristics to improve its survivability on the battlefield of the future. Though more expensive than its predecessors
on the surface, maintenance costs of the J-20 are noted to be far cheaper, owing to numerous pieces of equipment, infamous for their considerable maintenance costs, being
replaced with improved and simpler designs. There has been talk that, when the technology matures enough, the J-20 would be a prime candidate for the implementation
of Ceramic RAM technology, which would bring the already-highly capable airframe into the realm of 5th Generation Fighters.

Max Speed706 km/h (300 kn)
Range4,150 km
Service Ceiling13,700 m
ArmamentGuns: 1 × 30 mm GAU-8/A rotary cannon,1,174 rounds
Hardpoints: 11 × hardpoints, 7,260 kg payload capacity
Other CapabilitiesCan carry AN/AAQ-33 Sniper XR or LITENING pods
Cost$10.1 million
BackgroundA single-seat ground attack aircraft, the G-10 Meguro entered service in 1976 and has, though with upgrades over the years, remained in service ever since.
Through the years, it has earned a reputation as an incredibly durable aircraft, though perhaps it is more famous for its powerful 30mm cannon. Despite this,
there has been talk of possibly retiring the aircraft, though it has been suggested that the aircraft could be used in other roles to keep it relevant in the modern
 day, for example, by carrying decoy missiles to suppress air defenses.

P-13 Haitatsunin
ManufacturerNegishi
RoleStrategic Heavy Bomber
Crew5
Length48.5 m
Max Speed1,050 km/h (560 kn)
Range16,327 km
Service Ceiling15,000 m
ArmamentGuns: None
31,500 kg mixed ordinance
Other CapabilitiesCarries LITENING or Sniper Advanced Targeting Pods
Can carry under-wing missiles
Cost$84 million (NOT FOR EXPORT)
BackgroundNoted for its resemblance to the Achkaerinese Swallow and occasionally derided as a copy of said vehicle, the P-13 Haitatsunin was designed first and foremost as a
long-range strategic bomber, hoped to carry nuclear weapons had Daitō been able to develop them before the program was cancelled. The aircraft's designation is
notable as it uniquely kept the number it had under the older system of aircraft designation used by Daitō, when it was known as the P16N Type 13 Bomber.

Despite its age, the Air Force intends to field the ever-dwindling number of P-13s until the mid-2050s.

P-2 Yoichi
ManufacturerZayasu
RoleSupersonic Strategic Heavy Bomber
Crew4
Length45 m
Max SpeedMach 1.25 (1,335 km/h, 721 kn)
Range9,400 km
Service Ceiling18,000 m
ArmamentHardpoints: 6 × external hardpoints, 23,000 kg
Bombs: 3 × internal bomb bays, 34,000 kg
Other CapabilitiesEquipped with Sniper Advanced Targeting Pod
Currently the only designated bomber in Daitōjin service capable of going supersonic
Cost$265 million (NOT FOR EXPORT)
BackgroundBuilt as part of an escalating arms race, the P-2 Yoichi was the successor to the XP-1 Tengu, which suffered a high-profile accident during its development which resulted
in said program's cancellation. The P-2—the P-2A—was first built in 1973, however, the aircraft did not enter service until 1986. Between the P-13 and the P-3, the P-2I is
often overshadowed, however, despite this it is often seen as the workhorse of Daitō's bomber fleet.

BackgroundThe Negishi P-3 Yajirushi is Daitō's first stealth bomber, designed for penetrating dense anti-air defenses. Though it entered service in 1994, it only saw combat for
the first time in the mid-2010s. its successor, the P-4, is intended to enter service in 2025, while the P-3 could remain in service until around 2032, owing to the
small fleet of aircraft being expensive to maintain while said P-4 being better in practically every regard, including maintenance costs.

BackgroundOwing to its age and it no longer being in production, the IDAF determined that it would need to replace the E-3 Eihei.
Early proposals included updating the radar of said aircraft and fitting it to a Zayasu 560, however, by 1999, it was
decided that an entirely new radar would be used. That radar would fly aboard a Zayasu 530, becoming the E-4 Bōrō,
or Watchtower. It entered service in 2012, and is currently in the process of replacing the E-3.

second aircraft to be adopted by the Air Force, the first being a trainer. It was ordered as a result of the IDAF realizing that, among its fleet of
aircraft, none quite fit the role it was looking for in 2000, other than the rapidly-aging L-8.

BackgroundPerhaps less spoken about than its armed "sibling", the L-5 Kumo's claim to fame is in its age, as the design has, with numerous alterations over time, been in production since the mid-1950s.
Despite numerous attempts to do so, it has not been replaced, although as the airframe approaches its seventh decade, it has become clear that it will be phased out in the coming years, likely
alongside the L-16.

Other CapabilitiesThe Q-7 currently holds the record for fastest Ground Effect Vehicle
Capable of operating from virtually any environment
Cost$98.7 million
BackgroundBuilt to complement the current fleet of Q-6s in service, the Q-7 Suirō is a Ground Effect Vehicle, or GEV which began entering service in 2022. Lacking the range and speed seen on the Q-6,
it makes up for it with its larger payload, smaller crew, and most importantly, its price. Zayasu has claimed that the vehicle will serve as a proof of concept as much as it will an actual vehicle,
hoping to eventually develop larger vessels for service within the Imperial Daitōjin Armed Forces and as civilian vehicles.
