The To-199 Neophron is the primary light attack and Close Air Support aircraft used by Mediterranean CSAT forces.

OverviewEdit

  • Role:
    • Ground attack
« The To-199 Neophron is a new addition to CSAT air forces. An agile single-seat aircraft is used for close air support but can also take down air threats. It cannot carry as much payload as NATO's A-164 and has to rearm more often, but it can take-off from even the roughest terrain, not being as dependent on air bases or aircraft carriers.

Design Edit

Arma3-Neophron-Loadout

To-199 pylon configuration

The To-199 is a twin-engined light strike aircraft that uses a conventional swept-wing design. In addition to its primary role as a ground attack jet, the To-199 is nimble enough to perform either combat air patrol or reconnaissance roles if necessary.

By default, the To-199 is armed with a 30mm cannon that is loaded with 500 rounds of high-explosive (HE) ammunition.

The To-199 has ten pylons that support dynamic loadouts.

  • The two wingtip pylons (1, 10) support either of these two types of missiles:
    • Scalpel (1×)
    • Sahr-3 (1×)
  • In addition to the above two missile types, six of the central pylons on both wings (2-7) can support any of the following:
    • Scalpel (1×)
    • Scalpel (2×)
    • Scalpel (4×)
    • Tratnyr HE (20×)
    • Tratnyr AP (20×)
    • Skyfire (19×)
    • Sharur (1×)
  • The two inner pylons (8-9) closest to the main fuselage may only carry specific types of munitions:
    • Tratnyr HE (20×)
    • Tratnyr AP (20×)
    • Skyfire (19×)
    • Sahr-3 (1×)
    • Sharur (1×)
    • LOM-250G (1×)

The targeting pod also has a laser designator that can provide self-designation capability when used in-conjunction with the To-199's LOM-250G precision bombs.

In terms of performance, the To-199 has a much higher stall speed compared to its NATO counterpart, but is lighter, and can attain its top speed much more quickly. In addition, the To-199 has an airbrake located on the top of its fuselage and has two sets of air intakes for its engines: frontal for normal flight and on top, which it switches to during low level flight (during both take off and landing).

Sensors Edit

The To-199 has an array of sensors optimised for ground attack missions:

Active Radar Edit

The To-199 lacks an active radar as it does not utilise any radar guided munitions.

Infrared Search and Track/Visual Sensor Edit

IRST detection extends out to a maximum range of 5 km against aerial targets and 4 km against ground targets.

Visual detection is maximised at a range of 4 km for aerial targets, while ground targets can only be detected within 3 km.

Both sensors have a minimum detection range of 500 m, an azimuth coverage of 50 degrees, an elevation coverage of 37 degrees, and target recognition is limited to a range of 2 km.

Radar Warning Receiver/Passive Radar Edit

The RWR has a 360 degree detection radius and a target recognition range of 12 km.

In place of an active radar, the To-199 utilises an anti-radiation radar instead that can detect radar emissions in a 90 degree cone, with a maximum detection range of 8 km.

Laser Spot Tracker Edit

Laser markers and infrared strobes can be tracked within a range of 6 km. It has an acquisition cone of 180 degrees.

TriviaEdit

  • The Neophron is based on the real-life "Yak-130" designed by the Yakovlev Design Bureau, a subsidiary of the United Aircraft Corporation.
  • It is one of the few fixed-wing aircraft that are actually light (and compact) enough to be slingloadable by heavy transport helicopters like the Mi-290.
