AAT-17 Hussar

The AAT-17 Hussar, also known by its NATO designation 'Flavin' is a tandem-seat sub-compact low-capability multirole fighter designed and formerly manufactured by Synnia-based Machinebuilding Group Bruzik AE. With simplified maintenance requirements, short takeoff and landing performance, and rapid readiness capability, the Hussar is suited to the higher gradient of counterinsurgency operations, able to quickly respond from distributed airfields while possessing greater survivability and mission flexibility than long-endurance counterinsurgency and general light-attack aircraft. Additionally, intermediate-range air-to-air capabilities enabled by primarily foreign munitions integration allow the AAT-17 to serve in the DSO (distributed STOL operations) operational concept, confounding an aggressor's attempts to secure complete control over domestic airspace. A tertiary role may be found in supersonic air combat training with the Hussar capable of matching the kinematic ability of select low and high capability fighter aircraft. Aircraft may be ordered in the trainer configuration or converted to such standard from fighter-attacker variants.

Electronics of the Hussar are of 4.5/4++ to 5th generational standard, enabling high networkability of the fighter with other battlespace elements alongside general enhanced independent combat performance. The AAT-17 makes extensive use of Gallium Nitride-based phased arrays in the EMA-50 radar and ESI Quiver defensive electronic countermeasures suite. An ERA-38 opto-electronic suite is integrated in a ventral mount to enable ground target search and track and includes lasing capability for select guided munitions. Provisions exist for mounting an ESI Cinnabite pod which offers optronic sighting capability across a wider portion of the electromagnetic spectrum.

Armaments consist of both Synnian and foreign manufactured precision weapons with a unique hardpoint configuration capable of taking on a number of pylon adapters for Synnian, NATO, and CIS weapons mounts. The Hussar employs most bombs with the Mark 80, MOD 35, and FAB unguided bombs as a "base" for adapter kits. Additionally, standoff capability is achieved through compatibility of compact cruise munitions such as SPEAR 3 or VMK-108 Bloodhound. Later air-to-air missiles of the AIM-9 and AIM-132 families serve to provide close to medium-sector self-defense capabilities with select variants of AIM-120 also integrated for longer-ranged protection. Against less sophisticated threats, a Kharman Paskal U/190 20mm revolver cannon is built into the lower fuselage of the AAT-17.





ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

The EMA-50 is a multi-mode active electronically scanned array radar designed by Inouye Electromechanical Industries. Its emitting face consists of 750 individually-steerable Gallium Nitride array elements arranged in a radial pattern with cooling vanes positioned accordingly. The array reaches a peak power of 37.5kW and matches the performance of midweight 4.5/4++ generation AESAs with reduced-observability targets detected from ranges up to 95km and typical 4th generation targets detected at 140km or more under expected conditions. In air-to-air modes, up to 60 targets may be simultaneously tracked with 8 engaged at once. In air-to-ground modes, the radar may operate as a synthetic or inverse-synthetic aperture, allowing for ground mapping/following and ground moving target indication/track. The EMA-50 possesses a higher operating bandwidth than most 4.5-5th generation designs and demonstrates high frequency agility. This allows the radar to both better evade detection by enemy receiver systems as well as conduct limited offensive electronic attack on high-band radar systems, typically of the fire-control type.


The AAT-17's defensive suite consists of numerous avionic components able to defend the craft from primarily low to medium-level surfaceborne threats. The ESI Systems Quiver is a pod-based defensive ECM system occupying two enclosed apertures on the Hussar's wingtips to provide omnidirectional coverage. Radio warning receivers are integrated with the pods which are able to detect and jam radar emissions from the S to Ka band. Such frequency range is enabled through Gallium Nitride emitter components which additionally enhance the pods' Counter-Electronic Counter-Countermeasures (C-ECCM) capability. To defeat shorter-ranged guided threats, General Vigil's D/AJI-51 modular directed jammer is incorporated into the airframe. A total of eight receiver-jammer micro-apertures are embedded in various locations of the AAT-17's frame and possess an ultraviolet receiver component and low power lasing system in order to independently detect and defeat incoming missile threats. An infrared-guided missile approaching from most given angles will be subjected to laser dazzling which will ideally degrade the seeker head to the point of inoperability until an overshoot. This serves primarily to counteract short-range shoulder-launched munitions but given the Hussar's armaments, we advise buyers to operate these aircraft above the flight ceiling of such missiles should the opposition be suspected to operate them.
