Terran Confederation military aircraft represent the pinnacle of achievement in the latter half of the 27th Century. This is due largely to the two key principles responsible for each aeronautical effort. Aerospace Engineering evolved from primitive powered flight back on Earth. Now it is one of the most exact sciences in the universe. At the same time, Advanced Materials Manufacturing has exploded into an industry that continues to expand at a pace rivaling the airpeed of today’s top fighters.
An average of 8,000 man-years goes into the design and implementation of each ship listed in the blueprints below. As if this wasn’t enough of a challenge, Confederation scientists are required to perform aerodynamic miracles under the urgency of an ongoing war and in conditions hampered by scarcity of trained personnel and occasional material shortages. Despite these obstacles, these men and women are responsible for creating the most devastating flying weapons of destruction imaginable.
