Suisa Defence Aeronautics


Recommended Posts


Suisa Defense Aeronautics (SDA) currently produces aircraft modules, components, munitions and retrofit kits for pre-existing SDA models still currently in service with the Iverican Air Force, Fulgistani Air Force, and Girkmandian Airforce. It formerly produced jet fighter aircraft from its establishment in 1951 by renowned automobile and aircraft engineer, Tomas Suisa, to its acquisition and downsizing by the Toledo Group in 1995. In October of 1995, SDA announced that it would no longer design or manufacture new jet fighter aircraft. Instead, the company functions under the Toledo Aeronautics Division, working to retrofit existing aircraft when needed and design new aircraft modules for civil and military applications. The company still produces over 50% of its 1995 inventory at limited production.

Suisa Defence was born out of the violent fracturing of Spano-Suisa Automotive and grew on the back of the Iverican Air Force's demand for a domestically owned and produced combat aircraft manufacturer. Tomas Suisa was never known for the aesthetic beauty and comfort of his products, instead, he is widely respected in engineering circles for his innovation and daring in highly-functional, cost and space efficient design. Much of this is reflected in the aircraft still in operation today.

"It may look like my wife, but it works harder than your ass."

-Tomas H. Suisa




Multi-Role Fighter

  • [SeT-91A] "Halcón"


Multi-Role, Future-Proof Adaptable, Low-Maintenance 

The Suisa ét Toledo 91 "A" variant, was a multi-role, single-seat fighter designed for use by the Air Force of Iverica. It was designed as part of SDA's "Raptóra" Fighter Program which started in 1979 as an attempt to standardise the production of a series of fighters. The Raptóra Program aimed to create a group of fighters using a single base design for the purpose of being virtually future-proof by its adaptability to new systems, and ease of maintenance and production. The SeT-91's airframe became the base design for the "A", "B", "C", and SeT-201 fighters.

Length - 16.1 metres
Height - 4.73 metres
Wingspan - 11.4 metres
Powerplant - 2 x THI RD-33 afterburning turbofan
Max speed - Mach 2.25
Range - Ferry: 2000 km; 3000km with 3 drop tanks.
Service ceiling - 16000 metres
Crew - 1

Guns - 1 x 30mm autocannon with 150 rounds
Hardpoints - 9 × underwing pylons with a capacity of up to 5,500 kg (12,100 lb) of stores and provisions to carry combinations of Rockets, Air-to-Air, Air-to-surface, Anti-ship, Anti-radiation missiles, TV-guided, laser-guided, unguided bombs.

-Fortis 9M201 radar

Air-Superiority Fighter

  • [SeT/TA-201] "Àguila"


Stealth-Capable, Stand-Off (Beyond Visual) Superiority, Vector-Thrust Agility

The TA-201, was released in 1999 and entered service in the Air Force of Iverica in 2002 as it's premier Air-Superiority Fighter. It features significantly greater thrust-to-weight ratio, manoeuvrability, avionics, and range of detection than the previous SeT-91 models.The 201's only drawback is its decreased weapons payload and ferry range. The 201 has two other variants, the 201S, and 201V, both prototypes for stealth and thrust-vectoring respectively. 

In 1995, the project was put on hold when Suisa defence experienced several major fire accidents in their development facilities. SDA was eventually fully acquired by the Toledo Group after nearing bankruptcy. The project was finally finished by the Toledo Aeronautics Division (TAD) in 1999 and underwent trials and production not long after. The SeT/TA-201 is the last aircraft ever produced by Suisa Defense Aeronautics, as the company announced it would halt further new development indefinitely.

Carrier-Based Fighter

  • [SeT-91C] "Falcó"


Multi-Role, Takeoff Anywhere, Vector-Thrust, Folding Wing

The SeT-91C,  is a two-seat variant of the 91 series with folding wings and STOL capability. It is the Armada Air Corps' primary carrier-launched fighter aircraft. The 91C features Thrust-Vectoring engines to support greater manoeuvrability, and launch from the short runways of the República-class hybrid carrier. The 91C took the longest and cost the most resources to develop owing to several recurring problems (melting flight decks, thrust vector control)which had to be addressed before entering service.



Gound-Attack Aircraft

  • [SA-21] "Voltor"


Swing-Role, Takeoff Anywhere, Quick-Swap, Heavy Ordnance

The SA-21, is a single-seat, twin-jet engine ground attack aircraft designed for the Air Force of Iverica. It features a configurable armament loadout (gun pods, missile pylons and other hardpoints), the capability to operate in rough airstrips and the República-class hybrid carrier. The Voltor with the 2015 retrofit can carry up to 8 metric tons of ordnance. It is typically configured with x1 30 mm autocannon, x6 AGMs, x2 240mm rocket pods, and x2 AAMs for defence. It can alternatively be configured with modules from the Raptóra program, such as the gimbal-mounted FLiR optic, an electronic warfare suite, and a compact air warning-and-control system.




  • [SAR-24] "Cérvol"


Gunship/Transport/Cargo, Heavy Armour

The SAR-24M, Super Cérvol is an updated variant of the much older SAR-24. It features updates twin-turboshaft engines, folding rotors for carrier use and easier transport. The Super Cérvol can carry up to 6 metric tons of payload ordnance, an additional 1.5 tons of external cargo, and a troop complement of 6 persons or additional cargo. It is armed with a nose-mounted gimbaled 30mm autocannon, wing-mounted 240mm rocket pods, tv-guided missiles and other AGMS. For air-defence, the Cérvol can carry 2 AAMs and countermeasures. The SAR-24M's most unique feature is the armour alloy basin surrounding the cockpit layered with titanium and ballistic ceramic. It is known to be resistant to 20 mm AAA fire, and a low volume of non-shaped charge explosive ordnance fire. Its protective rating, utility, considerable manoeuvrability, and top speed of 300 kph make the Cérvol an ideal multi-role helicopter for all branches of service.


  • [SAR-25/26] "Barracuda"


Stealth, Hunter-Killer, Agile

The SAR-26 Barracuda was designed as a light, compact, two-seater, folding rotorcraft for use as a ship complement and security. The design began to incorporate more advanced electronic countermeasures such as radar jammers and IFF scramblers with its already formidable soft-kill anti-missile system, anti-thermal coating, superior agility, and smart weaponry (AGM and Smart Rockets) to create a dedicated stealth gunship. The Barracuda is marketed towards special forces and rapid response naval units looking for a high-end hunter-killer option.

Variants for Anti-Submarine, Anti-Ship, and Reconnaissance are also available.



  • [SUR-46] "Cavall"


Heavy Lifting, Mass Transport, Folding Rotor

The SUR-31 Cavall is one of the largest and most powerful rotorcraft in production. It can carry a passenger load of 90 armed troops or 60 stretchers. Alternatively, it can lift a total 20 metric tons of cargo internally, or sling-load larger armoured vehicles such as the UC-42 Léon in its light-weight configuration.

  • [SUR-17] "Gavina"


Assault Transport, Weapons Platform, Folding Rotor

Designed originally for the Marines, the SUR-17 is a tried and tested rotorcraft used by all branches of the Iverican RAS. It is capable of carrying 24 troops and can deploy them with extreme expediency through two flank doors and one rear ramp. The Gavina is also capable of mounting crew-served weapons on all doors and carrying out-board mounted rockets. As a utility craft, the SUR-17 can carry a total of 9 metric tons of cargo (internal+external sling).
