Greetings everyone, since Wowp 2.0 is in the works and is, as of yet, very well received considering it’s past. Blockhaj and I have decided to show some of the Tech tree proposals we have worked on in the last couple of months.
Today we start with the first part of the swiss tree as this is one of the 2 nations where we have the most information gathered, the other one being the swedish tree, there are however many other trees we have prepared as well.
However for the Swiss tree we are starting with the 2 fighter lines which will end in 2 tier 9 and 10s per line.
The fighter line, or in this case, Multi role fighter lines will be divided by manufacturer: Dornierwerke Altenrhein ( Doflug), later Flug- und Fahrzeugwerke Altenrhein ( FFA) and
Eidgenössische Flugzeugwerke Emmen ( EFW)
Note that this is merely a proposal so planes are subject to change.
Tier 1: Wild X
Fighter Designed by Alfred Comte for the Colombian air force and built in 1925. Historical information is sparse, however there’s enough information present for Wowp.
Compared to other tier 1 planes it is the slowest of them all with a top speed of only 190 km/h, but i could easily be buffed by a couple of km/h to make it at least competitive with other tier 1 planes.. It has the standard armament of 2x 7.5mm machine guns in the fuselage which is present on most tier 1 and 2 biplane fighters in WoWp.
EFW line: Slower multirole line but with better armament than the Doflug line.They resemble heavy fighters more than actual fighters in terms of armament.
Tier 2: Militär Apparat MA-7
Designed by August Häfeli in 1924. It was one of the 3 Militär Apparat planes ( MA-6, MA-7, MA-8) built and tested.
Stock top speed would be 235 km/h and it would have 2x 7.5mm MG11s
Tier 3: EKW C-35
It’s the predecessor to the C-36 series. Its a biplane attacker plane historically but its ground pounding ability is very poor with no rockets and less than 100 kg of bombs. Therefore we stuck it in the Multirole line. It has a 20 mm in the nose with 2x 7.5 mm machine guns firing through the propeller with a single 7.5 mm guner.
Tier 4: EKW C-3601
Historically a Ground attack aircraft, however later variants like the mass produced 3603 were capable to hold up to D-3801 fighter planes and BF 109 in trials in switzerland also it’s armament would have been lackluster for the Ground attack role in Wowp. These are some of the reasons why i put them in the Multi role fighter class in Wowp. The C-3601 and it’s Upgraded Fuselage C-3602 have fixed landing gear like the JU 87 stuka dive bomber. It has 1x 20 mm Hub mounted cannon and 2x 7.5 mm MGs in the wings as well as twin 7.5 mm rear guns in a single gunner mount.
Tier 5: EKW C-3603
Like EKW C-3601 however with retractable landing gear and a stronger engine. The first fuselage (pre production) has rounded wingtips like the C-3601 & 2 while the upgraded fuselage has clipped wings. As mentioned previously it could keep up with D-3801 and Bf-109 ( likely a D-1 or E-3 variant as the later BF 109s the swiss used were F-4s and G-6s which would have outclassed C-36 by a lot.
Tier 6: EKW C-3604
The most advanced Fighter version of the C-36 family. It had an even bigger engine as well as a 4- Bladed Propeller. It’s armament was also improved as it would now feature improved 7.5 mm guns, as well as an improved hub mounted 20 mm gun and an additional 2x 20 mm guns in the wings.
It’s rear gun was also tested a 13 mm mg131 (mod C-601), a 12.7 mm m2 browning (mod C-602) and a 20 mm cannon (mod C-603).
Tier 7: EFW Type 1
Post war ground attack/ fighter project. With a top speed of 600 km/h it could keep up with the Japanese fighters, it would however be less maneuverable but it would feature a fearsome armament of 4x 13 mm synchronized guns as well as 4x 20 mm wing mounted cannons.
Tier 8: EFW Type 2
Bigger, turbocharged engine, top speed: 650 km/h, still on the lower end of the speed scale, however it has a devastating armament of 8x 20 mm guns, 4 of them in the wings and 4 of them synchronized.
Here the line splits into the N-X line and the L-X line.
Tier 9: EFW N-10
Single engined jet fighter project from EFW with 6x 20 mm guns which for a fighter in Wowp is considered heavy armament.
Tier 10: EFW N-11
Different engine than N-10, it would be even faster with the same Armament.
Tier 9: L-10 IV
Light fighter project from the 50s. It was meant to be a lighter alternative to the very heavy P-16 and N-20.
As it would mount the Famous AS Saphire and would weigh almost half as much as P-16 which used the very same engine.
It would be very fast and very maneuverable, however it’s firepower would be very bad as it only mounted 2x 20 mm guns.
Tier 10: L-10 V
L-10 with twin Rolls Royce Orpheus Engines. It was calculated to have a top speed of 1150 km/h which would just make it just about the fastest fighter in Wowp if i gets implemented with historical speed, just faster than the FW 252 and F7U cutlass with 1100 km/h. It would however have the weakest armament of all tier 10 planes with only 2x 20 mm guns.
Doflug Line: The more “average” multi role fighter line with average top speeds and average armament.
Tier 2: Alfred Comte AC-1
While not being the first aircraft designed by Comte, that would be the Wild aircrafts. It is the first legit fighter as all the planes before that were built for recon purpose and only Wild X was a semi recon fighter.
AC-1 is a shoulder wing monoplane with a top speed of 250 km/h and a 420 hp engine.
Armament consisted of 2x 7.5 mm MGs
A further upgrade of the AC-1, called the AC-10 was an up engined AC-1 with a 480 hp Gnome- Rhone Jupiter.
Tier 3: Dewoitine D-27 III-R
Indigenous version of the Dewoitine D-27 and D-27 III, It has a different propeller and a more powerful engine. It had 2x 7.5 mm in the fuselage and had a top speed of 322 km/h.
Tier 4: Doflug D-3800
Licence built Ms. 406. It’s main armament featured a hub mounted 20 mm cannon and 2x 7.5 mm MGs in the wings it also had mounts for rockets and bombs
Tier 5: Doflug D-3801
Improved engine over D-3800 and some quality of life improvements such as a tail wheel instead of a skid. It had a top speed of 535 km/h and the same armament as the tier 5 one. Its climb rate makes up for its weaker armament since its 16.2 m/s which is really good.
Also something Anime related: the D-3801 is featured in the anime Shuumatshu no Izetta, it is mistaken with an MS 406, but as you can see above, D-3800 is based on the MS 406 which didn’t have a tail wheelbut a mere skid. Also the radio antenna on the Ms 406 was behind the cockpit and not infront as both D-3801 and the anime plane show ( and yes, the swiss MS 406 upgrade was the only MS 406 variant which has the antenna infront of the cockpit).
even the color sceme is very similar:
Don’t worry, i won’t be talking about anime in every article. Just wanted to point out a wrong name.
Tier 6: Doflug D-3802
The first real improvement. It had a 4- bladed propeller as well as a 1250 hp Saurer YS-2, it had a top speed of 638 km/h
The base vesion 3802 had 1 hub mounted 20 mm cannon and 4 wing mounted 7.5 mm MGs while 3802A had 1 hub mounted 20 mm cannon and 2 wing mounted 20 mm guns.
Tier 7: D-3803
Mounted with an even stronger 1430 hp Saurer YS-3 engine which gave it a top speed of 660 km/h, it also had a bubble canopy which allowed for all around vision. It’s armament was the same as D-3802 A.
Tier 8: P-12
Single engined jet fighter with a top speed of around 800 km/h and a base armament of 2 20mm guns as well as 16 120mm rockets and 800 kg worth of bombs.
Here the line splits into the P series which were maneuverable and the P series which were built more for speed than maneuverability.
Tier 9: P-14
Early P-16 concept, similar in design but with a much weaker Sulzer D-90 engine. Base armament was either 4x 20mm guns or 2x 30mm guns, with 400 kg bombs.
Tier 10: P-16
Probably the most well known swiss jet as it’s wings were the base for the Learjet 23 ( aka SAAC-23).
Powered by the massive AS Saphire Sa 6 it could go 1115 km/h. It was mounted with 2 x 30 mm HS 825 cannons.
P-16 also gives the American tree a possible tier 10 plane with the AJ-7, a P-16 with a different tail and a GE-J-79-11 A engine
Tier 9: P-15
Same as P-14, however this plane had swept wings which meant it could go faster, however it was less maneuverable.
Tier 10: P-17
Development of the P-16, with delta wings and a more aerodynamic nose. Unlike P-16 it doesn’t have a all around visibility canopy.
It would be similar to L-10 V, however it was much heavier meaning it would be less maneuverable. It had 2 30mm guns however which gives it better firepower.
