Feuer Zug

[GBW] - Free Build - PDSRE - Revolutionary air pilot

Recommended Posts

During the early 1960s, societal differences in the nation of Steinovania came to a head. The eastern section revolted due to policies originating from the ruling parties in the western part of the nation. The ensuing civil war was fought between the two sides. While the west had more equipment in better condition, the majority of the manpower came from the east. While extremely limited in aircraft, eastern pilots were far more aggressive. While the west should have had air superiority from day one, the eastern pilots managed to punch above their weight, obtaining localized air superiority when necessary for operations.

Here, we see Oleg Kovalenko, the leading ace of the eastern side next to his Steinovanian Flugzeug GmbH SFJ-2 first generation jet fighter. Oleg was credited with two dozen aerial kills during the civil war. The SFJ-2 fighter is equipped with a non-afterburning centrifugal turbojet producing 5,000 pounds of thrust. It is equipped with a pair of 20mm wing mounted cannons and has two hardpoints, one on each wing. It can carry bombs, rockets, or external fuel tanks on the hardpoints. By the end of the war, both sides SFJ-2s were tired and newer aircraft designs were coming online in the west. The newly formed People's Democratic Socialist Republic of East Steinovania had to carry on with their SFJ-2s longer and Oleg perished during a ground support sortie shortly before the armistice was signed.

Very Cool. Gives me hard MIG vibes, with the open snout and all, nice.

Truly! Kind of reminds me of a MIG-17.

Interesting design for the plane!

Danke. First generation jet fighters tried a lot of things. It gives one more options to experiment with the design.
