TO: The Bureau of Defence, Fulgistan. 

FROM: Darius Hiero, Senior Technical Sales Director, Vickers Weapon Systems. A Vickers-Carlyle Group Company. 

RE: Tender for a New Offensive Rotor Based Air Support. 

Esteemed comrades to our western reaches. I hope this tender proposal finds you well. I am glad to be assigned as your representative from the Vickers-Carlyle Group for all things defence orientated. We have years, no decades, no actually centuries of experience in the arms trade industry, and we have been delivering the finest equipment this region has seen. And today, we bring you our submission for tender. 

Firstly I would like to introduce you to our traditional solution to your offensive attack aircraft requirements. 

Comanche MkII RAH-66.5


Core Statistics:

  • Crew: two.
  • Maximum speed: 175 knots (201 mph, 324 km/h).
  • Cruise speed: 165 knots (190 mph, 306 km/h).
  • Range: 262 nmi (302 mi, 485 km)  on internal fuel (Can multiply this by 4 with external fuel tanks). 


  • 1× 20 mm XM301 three-barrel rotary cannon mounted in a Turreted Gun System (capacity: 500 rounds)
  • Internal bays: 6× AGM-114 Hellfire air-to-ground missiles, or 12× AIM-92 Stinger air-to-air missiles, or 24× 2.75 in (70 mm) Hydra 70 air-to-ground rockets
  • Optional stub wings: 8× Hellfires, 16× Stingers, or 56× Hydra 70 rockets

Comanche has long been a staple of the Adapton military for around the last two decades, and recently went through an upgrade cycle. Seeing the production of the Mk2 variant, with upgraded information systems, and cyber warfare support components integrated into the helicopters main weapons platforms. The Comanche's pray trick lies in it's sleek design. Weapons systems are self contained inside aircraft when in flight, unless mounted for heavy offensive capabilities. This, coupled with the radar absorbing outer armour, gives the Comanche a tiny radar signature, small enough to sneak past even the best radar system. This makes the Comanche an excellent reconnaissance aircraft, allowing for multi-role functions, in turn, saving you money in the process. This bad boy can fit so many weapons internally! You can't see it right now, but I just have to slap the roof of this thing it's so good!

But we aren't done yet. Since this is Vickers, and it's 2018. We thought you'd like to have a glimpse into the future of the air support defence sector. 

Aethon RAH-99


Core Statistics:

  • Crew: 0
  • Payload: 600 lb (272 kg)
  • Max. takeoff weight: 3,150 lb (1,430 kg)
  • Powerplant: 1 × Rolls-Royce 250, 313 kW (420 hp)


  • 6× AGM-114 Hellfire air-to-ground missiles
  • or 12× AIM-92 Stinger air-to-air missiles
  •  or 24× 2.75 in (70 mm) Hydra 70 air-to-ground rockets

Welcome to the future of light air support. The Aethon is our latest Unmanned Combat Arial Vehicle designed to fulfil the role of attack helicopters. Using a modular design, refined in the Comanche. It's weapon platforms are the same, however thanks to the lack of human pilots, the weight is drastically reduced, allowing the aircraft to deploy the same number of weapons systems, with a much smaller engine, and in turn allows for a much more efficient power plant. The other great advantage? You don't risk the lives of your pilots. They can stay very safe back at base. Deployable from ground, or sea based platforms, the Aethon is a versatile platform, that brings the future to your military. 

I hope this tender fits the requirements you're after. But please, don't let this small glimpse into the Vickers family fool you. If our offerings today are not quite to your level, then feel free to let me know, and we will present you a new offering. Our catalog is quite extensive!

Best regards!
