The weapons industry in Eiffelland has quite an interesting history. About 90 years ago, several Eiffellandian companies decided to bundle their efforts in producing military planes and military vehicles upon initiative of the government, which decided to take a share in the Eiffellandian defence industries as well. Meanwhile, the Eiffellandian defence industry developed into a conglomerate of companies producing everything from tanks and APCs via various kinds of artillery to planes and missiles.

Currently, the weapons industry in Eiffelland consists of the following companies:
  • Military planes (Raimer und Rathenau Flugzeugwerke (RRF)): This is a joint venture between the Eiffellandian car manufacturer Raimer and Rathenau Militärausrüstung; also the Eiffellandian government and the Royal Family are involved.
  • Artillery, tanks and armoured vehicles (Magarus; the Eiffellandian government and the Eiffellandian Royal Family are involved).
  • All-terrain vehicles: Raimer.
  • Missiles and rocketry: Factories owned by the Eiffellandian government and Rathenau Militärausrüstung.
  • Radio and radar equipment: Rathenau Militärausrüstung.
  • Optical equipment (e.g. binoculars, telescopes, periscopes, cameras): Karl Seiff GmbH and Agfas.
  • Hand weaponry: Beck & Böhm GmbH.
  • Naval vessels: Rheinmund Schiffbau GmbH.
Any foreign purchase from the Eiffellandian defence industries has to be approved by the government of Eiffelland.




Raimer und Rathenau Flugzeugwerke (RRF)

This company produces fighter planes, tanker planes, reconnaissance and transporter planes, and helicopters.

The is RRF’s newest fighter plane, capable of starting from the smaller type of aircraft carriers currently in Eiffellandian service. Multirole planes can perform many tasks, but not all. The Fallwind is what we call an omnirole plane; it is fit for every task that can be asked from a fighter plane.
The Fallwind has 14 hardpoints (13 in the naval version), and can carry up to 9500 kg of external fuel tanks, bombs or missiles. It has a top speed of 2223 km/h / 1381 mph / 1200 kn / Mach 1.8 at high altitude, 1390 km/h / 860 mph / 750 kn / Mach 1.1 at low altitude. Its combat range is up to 1850 km / 1150 mi / 1000 nmi, its ferry range is up to 3700 km / 2300 mi / 2000 nmi, its service ceiling is 15,835 m / 51,952 ft, its g limits are +9 −3.6 (+11 in emergencies), and its rate of climb is 304.8 m/s / 60,000 ft/min

It can carry up to 37 tonnes of cargo over a distance of 3300 km / 2100 mi / 1800 nmi. With 30 tonnes of cargo, its range is 4500 km / 2450 nmi; with 20 tonnes of cargo, its range is 6400 km / 3450 nmi. Its maximum speed is Mach 0.72; its cruise speed is 781 km/h / 485 mph / 422 kn.

Radar systems

The LSR family is a family of long-range radar systems. The abbreviation LSR stands for Langstreckenradar. This family of long-range radar systems consists of four members.
The (where the D stands for “Digital”) is a digital-antenna-array radar system that is capable of simultaneously fully automatic detection, track initiation and tracking of up to 1000 targets at 400 km (250 miles) distance. It is able to detect stealth targets, and can track outer-athmospheric target as well.
The (where the ASS stand for “Active Scanned Solid”) is an active electronically scanned array solid state radar system. The first version came on the market in 1995. The current version has a range of up to 900 km, and can detect simultaneously up to 30 objects flying up to 3000 m/s. It discriminates targets from natural clutter and countermeasures. Combined with an anti-missile-system, it can guide the antimissiles.
The (where the AP stand for “Active Phased”) is an active phased radar system. It is generally used in combination with the LSR-D. It can simultaneously track up to 200 air targets at 150 km distance, up to 150 surface targets up to 32 km distance. It has a horizon search out to 75 km and can perform volume search up to 150 km distance to back up the LSR-D. It is able to give surface naval gunfire support, and can guide up to 32 missiles at a time. It can also perform electronic counter-countermeasures.
The (where the PS stand for “Passive Scanned”) is a passive electronically scanned array radar, designed to be the principal radar system of medium and large sized naval vessels. The flat face rotates at 60 rpm, providing an almost continuous 360 degrees view. This system offers full search coverage, low altitude and surface search, the tracking of multiple targets and the capability to combine information for missile guidance.


Surface-to-air missiles

The is an anti-ballistic-missile-system. It consists of the antimissile Pfeil 2, the LSR-ASS radar system, a battle management and command centre, and a launch control centre. A recent extension to the ARS is the antimissile . This is an exo-athmospheric hypersonic anti-ballistic missile which can hit ICBMs outside the athmosphere, which can also be used against satellites.

The is an anti-air warfare system. It was specifically designed for the use on naval vessels, but a land-based version is available as well. The naval version uses the LSR-D and LSR-PS radar sytems, and the missiles. The land-based version uses a network of the LSR-D and LSR-ASS radar systems with the Komet missiles. There is also a truck-based version of the Komet-missile launching system.

The is a portable SAM missile.


Surface-to-surface and air-to-surface missiles

The is a portable fire-and-forget anti-tank missile.

The is an air-to-surface missile against many kinds of tactical targets, such as air defence systems, armour, ships, ground transportation and fuel storage facilities.

The was designed as an anti-ship missile. One SR-2 is enough to sink a complete destroyer or corvette, and only a few SR-2 missiles are needed to sink an aircraft carrier.

The is a cruise missile that can be fired from fighter aircraft.

The is a surface-to-surface / tactical missile produced by Rathenau Militärausrüstung. It is fired from the ground, and can be used against many types of ground targets. It can also be used for shooting cluster bombs. This missile can be launched by a multiple rocket launcher, for instance our . We can deliver these missiles stand-alone, but also combined with Magarus’s or mounted on an army truck.

Future development consists of cruise missiles to be fired from submarines.

OOC: One remark with the ships: Of course all the radar systems in use on them are systems from Rathenau Militärausrüstung. Should the Wikipedia page indicate that a ship contains something else than what I RP as a Rathenau techniques, please presume that the IC ship only contains the Rathenau Militärausrüstung technologies.

The Government of Bajororzság wishes to convey its interest in the purchase of the Magarus family of armored vehicles. This includes both the IFV and the MBT. If possible, members of the government would like to process a bid for roughly 50 of the MBT and 25 of the IFV. It is our hope to travel to Eiffelland for a overview of the vehicle’s capabilities and hopefully cement a purchase agreement.

Thank you,

The Government of Bajororzság is entirely impressed by snorkel abilities of your product, as well as the bridge layer capable units. As such, we must inquire additionally about the purchase of bridge layers. The Government wishes to purchase five of them.

Our representatives and military specialists are pleased with the demonstration and wish to confirm the purchase of the MBTs and IFVs. It is the feeling among our people that the bond between both Bajororzság and Eiffelland is strong, and our ability to maintain peace between each other for generations as something that is without question, the finest example of neighborly relations in the world.

We thank the representatives from Magarus as well for their support.

Our final question is one of production and logistics. How quickly can we expect the first deliveries of our order?

Thank you,
Pál Granat

We thank Beck & Böhm for the invitation extended. A representative groups of ballistics experts, procurement officials and military representatives will travel to Eiffelland to assess the BB products. Should these tests be positive, we would then proceed to invite BB representatives to present their weapons to use in a desert scenario here in Elbaron, the most likely combat scenario for the Elbarone Legion.

We look forward to working with your ballistics experts, and will make sure that we won't disappoint them. The Eiffellandian armed forces use the SG2 in Al-Magrab, with full satisfaction, so we have full confidence in testing the wapon in desert scenarios.
