The Fröhlichwaffe is the air force division of the armed forces of the Commonwealth of Essexia. It is controlled by Lord Jack of Essexia. Jack is the General of the Armed Forces and General of the Fröhlichwaffe.
The Fröhlichwaffe was established on the 8th of July 2018, when Lord Jack was contracted by King Terry to construct an aerial vehicle for the protection of Essexia. The result was the R/C-01 'Pelican', which couldn't fly, and was a hand-built glider. The name roughly translates to "Cheerful Weapons", or "Cheerful Air".
The R/C-01 'Pelican' was a hand-crafted glider built by Lord Jack for King Terry, however it has never left testing due to its inability to glide or fly.
The R/C-02 'Raptor' is a radio defence vehicle ordered by Lord Jack for the fröhlichwaffe. It has the ability to vertically take off and land, and is carrier-capable.
The R/C-03 'Bear' is a radio defence vehicle ordered by Lord Jack for the fröhlichwaffe. It has the ability to fly at relatively fast speeds horizontally, and is carrier capable. On the 27th of August 2018, the REQ Jaywick super carrier was fitted with a ski ramp to allow the R/C-03 'Bear' to successfully take off from the carrier for the first time.
This concept Multi-Role Jet aircraft featured a swing-wing, single after-burning engine, and slim cockpit design. It was based on aircraft such as the F-86 Sabre, and MiG-15.
Another multi-role Jet aircraft, the 'Wasp' concept features external canards, dual after-burning engines, and dual vertical stabilisers. It was based on aircraft such as the F/A-18 Hornet, Su-27 Flanker, and F-15 Eagle.
