Talk:List of Jet Fighters
Jet aeroplanes seem to be squirreled away in the unlikeliest of locations. Here is the master list of everything I have found. Feel free to edit information and add any I don't know about. Geoff
- I believe CSDS might had supplied Iraaq with jet planes during the Persia-Iraaq War or even previously during communist inspired Abdul Karim Qassim regime.--Pedromoderno 00:12, 13 September 2008 (UTC)
- Duly noted. Thank you! Geoff
- Not likely, since the first production jet didn't enter service until well after the fall of the CSDS. Dalmatinac 18:09, 6 September 2009 (UTC)
- Quite. I eventually worked that one out. - Geoff 20:07, 6 September 2009 (UTC)
There is a Czech-built L-159 Alca jet fighter *here. I added the Wikipedia article link, but it looks way too modern to be IB's L-159 Alka. Should the name be modified a little, or is this just another IB example of convergence? Geoff 08:08 US Central Time, 13th September 2008
- Could be convergence--but it's otherwise far too modern, given that everything as far as jet tech goes is more in line with the mid 50's, late 60's. BoArthur 13:59, 17 September 2008 (UTC)
Dassault Mirage 2000
Can we add the French Dassault Mirage 2000? I think around 7-8 countries here have them. Misterxeight 14:24, 13 September 2008 (UTC)
- The Mirage 2000 is a lovely plane. But take a look at the links to the primary-world equivalents. Jet technology is in its infancy; the jet designs appear to be 1940s/1950s aircraft. Perhaps we might add the Dassault Ouragan, but that would be speculation. What I've done for this page is to assemble all of the jet fighters detailed all over the Wiki and other places into one location, for convenience. That way, potential designers can be IB-appropriate in the technology level they use, and people looking for a jet to grace their air force with have a single location to see what's already available. Also, this way we can see when we need to get some updated designs (in a few years' time, I should think). Geoff 10:00 US Central Time, 13th September 2008
Additional nations that probably produce their own jets
Possibly most of the most advanced military powers by now already have their own jet planes industries.
Among those I believe which already produce jet fighters there are:
Australasia, because a country capable to deploy atomic bombs in 1947 surely is technologically developed enough to produce jet fighters right now.
Some of the constituents of the Holy Roman Empire, notably Prussia, Bavaria and Saxony, as I believe they are also developed and are military powers strong enough although these ones might have some limitations due to post-Second Great War conditions. Or maybe these ones were just allowed to have civilian jet planes in consequence of the Great War 2.
Possibly many countries are rght now importers of foreign jet fighters, notably some militaristic ones and some of the oil rich nations which might have money enough to pay for them and might want to protect their resources from possible foreign invaders.
And perhaps also Grand Fenwick, just kidding.--Pedromoderno 00:15, 14 September 2008 (UTC)
- Prussia certainly was kept from having a full-fledged military, only a defense force. (The specifics of the treaty are toward the bottom of the Prussia page.) But you know, if jet fighters weren't around in 1950, Prussia could be buying a few: after all, the treaty doesn't say anything about jets, does it? Then again, I wouldn't be surprised if there was a "no combat aircraft" clause that couldn't be broken. Benkarnell 15:35, 14 September 2008 (UTC)
I think it makes sense for jet engine development to go as it did *here* considering the first jet planes were a product of the rampant militarisation prior to World War II. Perhaps fàr less extensively used, but certainly not a nascent technology! Unless Germany has had A.) jet fighters for a much longer period of time than any other country or B.) its jet planes destroyed after GWII as per the "castration treaties", or unless some sort of moratorium was called on airplane development after some Arschloch thought it was a good idea to fly a plane painted with rocket fuel of all things, there's no real reason to have jet technology be so basic. I know IB is not exactly known for advanced technology, but bloody hell, jet engines being this new is practically medieval! Juan Martin Velez Linares 14:23, 11/4/2016 (CDT)
