Fictional variations and real-life counterparts

The aircraft in this game are upgraded models of aircraft from the 20th century as there was no major conflict in USEA to justify the development of a new generation of airplanes. All active aircraft are refurbished and renovated with the COFFIN system and other improvements due to technological advancement.
