Welcome to Naval Attack Challenge

Welcome to the Naval Attack Challenge. On this occasion you will have to develop a plane or helicopter equipped with anti-ship missiles. The aircraft can be replica or fictitious, it can be jet or turboprop. Each aircraft will be tested on a secret map in which there will be a predetermined combat route. Prepare your aircraft to participate in the Naval Attack Challenge.


Video Challenge available

Updates

  • 1 - The Naval Attack Challenge and its rules of participation are published!

Deadline 25 December 2019


Basic Build Rules - XML Edition Allow! Read rules please!

  • VERY IMPORTANT! The design and behaviour of the aircraft must be realistic
  • Must be successor of this post
  • Must be a new post, no reuploads
  • Can be both fictional and replica
  • Max 3 entries per person
  • XML is allowed and expected
  • Your entry must be more than 230 parts and less than 750 parts
  • The weight and drag of the details can be 0
  • Max Flares (50 units) Max Chaffs (50 units)
  • The description is highly recommended and it will be specified: 1) Year of introduction, 2) Manufacturer, 3) Options, Specifications, Features

It will be judged

  • Ease of maneuver - 30pt - Your aircraft handles well, flies at a speed suitable for the type of aircraft, turns well, has a smooth flight, works well at all speeds, quickly gains altitude.
  • Realistic model - 40pt - If it looks realistic or plausible, you will gain more points
  • Details, paint and accesories - 10pt - Do you have good looks and details?
  • Realistic weapons and behaviour - 20pt - It has weapons according to those currently available. Is the behavior of the weapons realistic? Do the missiles have realistic reach, speed and behavior? Do you use guns based on real or similar weapons?
  • Build quality - 20pt - Your aircraft has been built with quality, paying attention to detail, has a good finish
  • Mission Fulfillment - 50pt - Destroy the two frigates, without suffering damage + Fire the anti-ship missiles within 100 feet + Complete mission between the 5 best chronos + Back to base + Destroy secondary objectives
  • Fair play - 20pt - If you meet all the rules you will earn 20 points, otherwise you can lose up to 20 points

How is the test on the secret map?

  • All aircraft participating in the challenge will be tested on a secret map.
  • Airplanes and helicopters will have predetermined combat routes. They will have to overcome the air defenses in their path, until they reach two frigates that they must destroy with their anti-ship weapons. The anti-ship attack will launch less than 100 feet high.
  • The elimination of other objectives, add points, also return to the base.
  • The test video will be published on YouTube.
  • Finally, the secret map will also be published.

    Are there any other specifications on fair play? Does low observable (stealth) count as fair play?

    @TMach5 That's what I did in order to make the plane a successor. Do you think I could do it again and it would be fixed?

    That happened to me once. I resolved it by making a sub assembly of my plane and then opening it in a new file.@asteroidbook345

    For some reason my AS-17 started having autoroll issues as soon as I added armament. The problem is, that armament is weightless and dragless.

    @MasterLobster I just added a "state of the art targeting pod" and modded the missiles accordingly. At least I came up with some cool stuff, even if it's not realistic.

    @MasterLobster It's mildly concerning, but I've usually trusted his judgement before. I think he meant within 100 feet of the water's surface too.

    I'm less bad at overload now so I might be able to make the Baba Yaga work. If it doesn't I have a backup entry.

    There's a few things that I find concerning:

    Fire the anti-ship missiles within 100 feet

    Are you sure that you meant to say 100 feet? That's seriously way too close for any missile in real life

    Complete mission between the 5 best chronos

    This one pretty much takes out of the equation any realistic plane, you can't just fire an anti ship missile at mach 2, and those planes that fly realistically and aren't supposed to cruise at supersonic speeds stand absolutely no chance.

    Do the missiles have realistic reach, speed and behavior?

    Does this mean we can have missiles that can launch from miles away?

    If it looks realistic or plausible, you will gain more points

    I'm guessing replicas can't get points from this one

    Your aircraft handles well, flies at a speed suitable for the type of aircraft, turns well, has a smooth flight, works well at all speeds, quickly gains altitude.

    This would go against the rule that it should handle realistically if we're making a heavier plane, especially a modified bomber.

    @FlyingHueman it´s allowed re-edit aircrafts, but must be new features and some new design elements, not equal to original plane.

    Is it allowed to make a new/adapted version of a previously posted aircraft? As a sucessor to this post, of course. I only ask because, while that would would technically not be a reupload, it wouldn't be completely brand new either, so I fear it'd be on a bit of a weird grey spot on the rules and I wanted to make sure.

    The reason I ask is because one of the ideas I had on my mind for the future would fit almost perfectly here, but some adaptations would be required (namely on the countermeasures, and perhaps some extra detailing for good measure since I don't usually do much of that).
