Historical Background.

After its glorious revolution in which the New Republic of Vanadia gained its independence, it was clear that a serious re-arming program was in need. While Vanadia was victorious in its war of independence, it came at no small cost. A specification for an aircraft that would be easy and cheap to develop as well as produce while still being of a high quality to fufill the ground attack /close air support was put out by the Vanadian Aeronautical Research and Defense Association (VARDA). Several contractors were selected to compete. However, an independent engineer by the name of Roland B. Acon (erryone just calls 'im BaconRoll tho) pitched the idea of using a cancelled Polish project called the PZL-230f "Skorpion". The PZL Skorpion was developed in the '90s to satisfy Polands need for a modern fighter aircraft that was produced domestically. The project was cancelled after several design complications as well as cost concerns. While the Skorpion might not have failed in Poland, in vanadia there was no room for such failure. The project would continue under the designation BNRV- 230f. The was the perfect design. Its compactness used a minimum of resources. Its sturdy design gave it the ability to carry payloads as varied as they were heavy. It had the latest and greatest electronics array, and it had fantastic maneuverability that surpassed any other fighter in the world. It even boasted a small amount of stealth capabilities, but this was not a priority as the BNRV-230f was intended for operations below radar level. Speed was not exceptional but still impressive with a top speed of over 1000mph at 50,000 feet.

    This reminds me of that Polish attack jet concept that never made it past the mock up stages.

    @Zippy6 yeah you pretty much have to fire the infernos not at a straight angle, but everything else is awesome! The compact, stubby, yet extremely sleek airframe is amazing!

    My only issue with this is that the Infernos sometimes blow up the plane when launching
