Work In Progress
Aircraft of the E.B.S.I.S.
Between the Global Civil War and the Rain of Death, only a small percentage of Russian/European Fourth generation aircraft survived. Of the Fifth generation, they could virtually be counted on your hands and there are no Sixth generation aircraft known to exist. As with all things, the burgeoning Soviet state took the most rugged and tried examples of available airframes combined with what manufacturing base they had and built a fleet that, with numbers, could hold its own against the RDF, Zentraedi, and Hi-Tech Bandits around the world. Second only to Mecha, the E.B.S.I.S. is in the market for advanced aircraft designs, aircraft, and avionics.
What follows is what will be most commonly encountered in the field. Europe was hit much harder than the Russian Federation so few airframes from countries such as France, Germany, or the UK exist. Most common would be Russian and former Soviet designs (of which there were many).
