RI-5 Uranaisha
ManufacturerKasori
RoleUnmanned Surveillance and Reconnaissance Aerial Vehicle
Crew0 onboard (3 remote: Launch and Recovery Element (LRE) pilot, Mission Control Element (MCE) pilot, and sensor operator)
Length14.5 m
Max Speed629 km/h (310 kn)
Range22,800 km
Service Ceiling18,000 m
ArmamentUnarmed
Other CapabilitiesCan remain airborne in excess of 34 hours
Cost$99 million
BackgroundThe RI-5 Uranaisha is a high-altitude, remotely-piloted surveillance aircraft operated by the Imperial Daitōjin Military. Produced by the Kasori Corporation,
it provides a broad overview and systematic surveillance using high-resolution synthetic aperture radar (SAR) and electro-optical/infrared (EO/IR) sensors
with long loiter times over target areas. It can survey as much as 100,000 km2 of terrain per day. Per the Imperial Daitōjin Air Force, the platform's superior
surveillance capabilities allow for more precise weapons targeting and better protection of friendly forces.

R-2 Zuijin
ManufacturerZayasu
RoleReconnaissance Aircraft
Crew1
Length19.2 m
Max Speed804.67 km/h (434.5 kn)
Range11,280 km
Service Ceiling24,000+ m
ArmamentUnarmed
Other CapabilitiesCan carry a payload of 2,300 kg worth of surveillance equipment
Endurance of 12 hours
Cost$60 million(NOT FOR EXPORT)
BackgroundOnce billed as the "future of aerial reconnaissance", the R-2 Zuijin did not live up to the hype. Nonetheless, even though it promised much and under-delivered, it has
remained a capable platform, with it, unlike the R-4, having no confirmed date for its retirement. As such, the R-2 spy-plane will likely remain in service indefinitely.

R-3 Fukurō
ManufacturerAizawa-Shinoda
RoleReconnaissance aircraft
Crew2 (Pilot & Reconnaissance Systems Operator)
Length22.43 m
Max SpeedMach 3.2 (3,920.3 km/h, 2,117 kn)
Range6,296.8 km
Service Ceiling28,651.2 m
ArmamentUnarmed
Other CapabilitiesFeatures limited stealth design elements
Fastest aircraft currently in (limited) service in the IDAF
Cost$315.18 million (NOT FOR EXPORT)
BackgroundDesigned as an attempt to replace the R-2, the R-3 Fukurō is a reconnaissance aircraft designed by Aizawa-Shinoda. Making use of (at the time) cutting-edge
materials, the aircraft was the first operational aircraft in the IDAF which featured design elements now commonly associated with stealth aircraft. Despite it
being made in an attempt to overcome the shortfalls of the R-2, its attempts to reduce its RCS were counteracted by its contrails, which unfortunately reflected
on radar. Nonetheless, its other capabilities, such as its incredible service ceiling and speed permit it to serve as a capable reconnaissance platform, though an
expensive one. It is due to that expense that the R-3 is expected to be retired in late 2023, though no replacement is currently known of, as would be expected.
It took nearly twenty years for the Fukurō to be declassified, after all, and rumors abound of a potential successor.
