Aircraft Sheet: Favorites by Kryptid Aircraft Sheet: Favorites by Kryptid
This is a number of my favorite aircraft, where all of them are roughly scale to one-another. The accuracy of the length of each sprite has some dependence on how accurate the schematics were that I used as references for the aircraft. The wing spans should all be about right. In the case of the MiG 1.44, I found contradicting measures for its dimensions. For that reason, the depicted sprite may in fact not be accurate.

Since there are 72 pixels per inch in MS Paint (when not zoomed in), then that would make these aircraft sprites about 1:287.5 scale to the real aircraft.

Note: These sprites were 100% custom-made by me. They were not ripped from a game, nor were they modified from official sprites. They are completely original and therefore should not be reported as a copyright violation.

Some of the earlier designs for the MiG-25 did resemble the Arrow.

The story of the Avro Arrow is most instructive when contemplating the results of letting diplomacy and economy get in the way of aircraft development. The Arrow was quite simply the world's best fighter, but NATO had this control mentality and, in the end, an inferior American fighter (memory fails me as to which) was chosen.

It's too bad the Arrow got cancelled, given how long the Canadian ministry of defense seems to be holding out on getting new fighters(F-35), the Arrow would have remained in service until the early 90's.
She was big beautiful and I'm not proud that the man responsible for it's death hails from the same place as me.

Wonder what it was canceled for in the first place...

Officially it was cancelled because of development costs, and the fact that it was believed that new ICBMs would make supersonic interceptors obsolete.

That's the official story but the existence of supersonic interceptors like the F-15 seems to be somewhat contradictory, given the arrangement that Canada made with the United States after the Arrow's cancellation, preventing Canada from developing it's own weapons without U.S. approval and oversight.

It's most likely that Diefenbaker was under pressure from the Americans to cancel the Arrow and agree to a one-sided defense agreement heavily in the favor of the U.S. Basically the U.S. was top dog in North America and they saw the Arrow as a threat to their military dominance.

Basically a Conservative PM caving into pressure from the Americans is nothing new, Benett did it during the depression, Diefenbaker did it with the Arrow and the American missile defence plan, Mulroney did it with NAFTA, and now we're just hoping Harper is going to grow some balls and not let the U.S. fuck Canada over again, he can start by not allowing the construction of a pipeline from, the oilsands in Alberta to refineries in Texas taking all of the refining jobs and all of the tax revenue out of Canada.

Well, that's stupid. The US shouldn't be poking it's nose in everyone else's business.

I don't think I realized the similarity when I made this, actually. I did find out later, though.

S-37 (Su-47 Golden eagle) has got NATO code name? "Firkin"?))) Interesting, why give the code name to experimental plane, after all their will not build more, only one airplane... Similarly MIG-39 (the project 1.44), too only one airplane...

Amongst these plane MIG-25 I like more all, next MiG-39...

Apropos, never saw Su-33 in yellow-brown camouflage. Only navy camouflage, but yellow-brown camouflage was on Su-35 and Su-37(though between Su-33, 35 and 37 nearly not find difference)

Your pixel-art is very good ). Good work!

Thank you. Wikipedia says that the NATO reporting name is Firkin, so that's where I got that from.
