Profiling by JP Vieira - New profiles 2017
« on: December 11, 2011, 11:40:42 PM »
Hello
First of all thanks to Greg and all other that contributed to make this forum a reality.

I will post my work in this Thread.
I will start with new works and, perhaps in the future, post some old works (until then you can check them at my what-if site at http://what-if-world.webs.com/index.htm.

Here is the first
In the late 1960's and early 1970's france decided to modernise its air force; the adopted strategy was to field small numbers of large twin-engine interceptors alongside more numerous single-engine aircraft.
The larger aircraft was a twin-fin, twin-engine interceptor, the Dassault Orage


The smaller aircraft was the Dassault Eclipse


Both aircraft were also exported to many countries.

Excellent work, Mr Vieira! I especially like the neat angle of the Eclipse. Fitting you'd post that as we've just had our last full luner eclipse for the next couple of years last night.

I love the Orage! Looks to me like a fusion of F-15, F-104 and... something else I can't quite place. Aha, your creativity! :D

Thanks for the comments!
Actually (you may not believe it) but the starting point for the design of the Orage was the Mirage IV... It was so transformed that it resembles nothing of the original IV.
I thought that Eclipse was a fitting name for a Dassault aircraft...

Hello
The Orage was developed in a series of versions: one of those was the Orage II, a twin-seat, strike version. This aircraft was used by the Armee de l'Air and exported to some countries, namely Egypt

And What-if  the Tornado was designed in the 1950's, early 60's...?
More of a subtle differences, but I think it looks well
Here is the Tornado of a earlier generation:

That "namtoe" could be even remote controlled by Phantom WSO... What about something more subtle? like F-104 rebuild by Germans during Cold War as a missle, and put under... other Starfighter? With under-wing fuel tanks, and single nuke that can be fitted into drone nose, what range that "Mistel" could have? And naext give it ZELL pack for more fun :)
