Sonda Aerospaceís ASF-19 is a twin-engine fifth generation super-manoeuvrable, stealth fighter aircraft. In keeping with SAís concept for air superiority fighters, it is design to provide maximum speed and manoeuvrability above all else. As a result the plane is capable of mach 4 and has an operations ceiling height of 75,000 feet. Because of speed taking precedence over anything else, past air superiority fighters by Sonda Airspace sometimes lacked adequate payloads , combat range etc. However the ASF-19 was the first to not only have a record breaking top speed but additional capabilities. These include ground attack, electronic warfare, and signals intelligence roles.

This is quite an old model actually, I found it hanging out in some random corner of my pc so I thought Iíd put it up. Itís a pretty basic model really as it doesnít have any special maps, itís a just model with diffuse map. I did however get it into Hawx 1 a while ago, it was fun to play with .
I Designed this Aircraft two years ago as part of a project for my degree. Its a concept, all weather, twin engine, stealth jet fighter/high-speed recon aircraft. I did a Radar Cross Section (RCS) on the aircraft when I designed it and a received a very low return signature, which I was very pleased about. Maybe ill post it one day.

Designed to replace other utility helicopters, the surprisingly stable Dragon dwarfs most other helicopters, mainly in girth. It can even handle small vehicles in it's bay, provided the seating is removed or folded up. Needless to say, when supporting or transporting troops for ground combat missions, it makes an easy target. This aspect was sighted early on, and to counter RPG and other shoulder-mounted Anti-Air fire, it supports an enhanced TROPHY system, able to counter anything that might fire at it from the sides or below, though the top is still somewhat vulnerable from closer distances. It maintains enough personal weaponry within it's bays to clear out any SAM or Anti-Air sites on it's initial entry, as well as having it's 25mm chain gun for any enemy personnel that might stand in it's way, which is able to track nearly as fast as the gunner can move his head to target with it. With the advent of improved digital systems relieving much of the load of the operators, the gunner and crew chief both act as Electronic Warfare specialists as well, able to defend against enemy vehicles and SAMs.
For carrier operations, the AUV-50 Dragon can also maintain a good deal of the carrier's necessary Carrier On-Board Delivery Operators, though it's range is not as extensive as previous aircraft; new models are in the works for the UV-50B, which will cover such needs, as well as Midair Refueling, and an EV-50B, which will cover Midair Refueling and AWACS needs.
I love giant planes especially if they are like aircraft carriers but can FLY! Carrier planes flying over the enemy's territory and deploy their fighter planes. The landing platform is at the rear and the launch platform is at the side.
The SF-330 is a 5-gen light fighter aircraft. Some month ago comrade Roddy1990 ask me about my conception of fighter, that can be better as PAK FA, I not shure, that SF-330 can be better, but I think - this one have some chances in dogfight against any contemporary 5-gen fighter
The Raptor is a cross between a transport plane and a flying fortress, and serves as the EDF's mobile command. It is armed with a deadly array of missiles and pulse cannons, ablative radar absorbing armour, and space for any necessary aquatic or ground vehicles. It is equipped with a small slipstream drive which allows it to travel at Hypersonic speeds and a troop lift which allows it to quickly deploy crew and light vehicles onto the ground while hovering. It also has limited aquatic ability so it can launch from the EDF's undersea HQ.
This was the first serious vehicle I ever designed back when I was 15. It was meant to be the villains ship from a Thunderbirds fan film I never quite ended up finishing. When Guy and I began creating EDF in 2006, I knew I had to use this design again. Looking at it, it has all the hallmarks of been designed by a 15 year old, huge tail fin, massive wings etc. Almost like a hotrod Thunderbird 2 designed by Apple. Thats probably why I quite like it. Here is pretty much the original model, heavily cleaned up in photoshop and the original Microsoft paint textures updated a tad.
As we never finished the first EDF pilot and "Vanguard" it's only appearance to date is in "Into the Abyss". Its launch sequence is here [link] and a rather cool action sequence of it going head to head with a nuclear submarine: [link] ... Be kind we where 17 year olds
