Offering an extensive variety of game modes to chose from, with quick, action-oriented instant play, or the opportunity to experience an immersive story-based campaign, Vector Thrust offers something for everybody, appealing to both players wanting to get straight into the sky and those who want to experience something deeper.

Adding custom skins, changing a parameter of a unit or creating full-blown battle scenarios is easy and open to anyone. With over 16 different fanmade mods and addons already avaliable for download, ranging from paint schemes to HUD revamps and even completely new aircraft, Vector Thrust offers near-unlimited expandability and adaptability.
Above all, Vector Thrust delivers a tactical, intelligent AI, where every unit works to complete its mission in a dynamic ever-changing battlefield that is never played the same way twice.

This time there is something different to talk about.
You all know VT already offers an insane amount of aircrafts right?
But sure, we still want more, or would have preferred if some families were added instead of others.
But this time the issue is different. Some days ago I came to a realization.
A game with such large selection surely will have a few overpowering super aircrafts, right?
Ok, even if is not a wicked design, I bet there is some special aircraft that can be unlocked after clearing a campaign, right?
And that’s the issue.
While the game as a large quantity of aircrafts, it has very few original ones and those are quite balanced will all other aircrafts making them almost indistinguishable from the rest.
For a game like VT is like almost mandatory to have at least one super aircraft.
To address that, new aircraft could have been quickly conceptualized and added to the game, but that is the standard procedure.
Instead of that, I want to keep the tradition of VT hearing the community, so I prepared a contest that allows all players to submit their own design:
Here are the rules in simple text:
You can find the dedicated forum page here:
Tip: consider that this super aircraft may be eventually used against you, so it must be beatable.
And here is an example how to submit a design to the contest
Sub weapon: GSh-30-1
Main weapon: R-60
Special weapon 1: R-77
Special weapon 2: R-60M
Special weapon 2: Kh-29T
And that’s all, good luck for all interested in summiting their designs, and I look forward to see your creativity.
If anyone has any question related to the contest, it can be asked here in the comment section

Highest Rated (11 agree) 10/10
I am sorry I couldn't give it a 10/10 out of euphoria; but this is still an alpha; I am glad that such a ace combat pandora box has been opened; i was very pleased, really; and the only reason i cannot be more precise is the state of advanced sleep deprivation my brain is suffering from. The musics seem sometimes to be out of place and we can barely see what the entire game will be; but...... This is a godlike game. Really. I have never been so hooked on a game this "young" since years. Not even…
