The Next Sky Cup Should Be a Sky Battle
I've got some fighters I really want to use to blow others out of the sky with. Which means I am (and others) proposing the next Sky Cup be a "Sky Battle!"
Here are the rules as I see them: The basic limitations on plane entries are the same as any other tournament. The difference is we add three new classes;
Gunfighter (guns only)
Top Gun (missiles and guns)
Flight School (missiles and guns with mods).
Combining these class names with the current class names we end up with events like "Prop Class: Top Gun," "Unlimited Class: Gunfighter," or "Mod Class: Flight School." For each event two planes fight at medium distance in 2 min bouts, best 2 out of 3 wins. In the event that time runs out and all 3 rounds are a draw the plane that fired it's guns/had a weapons lock the longest wins. Why? Because the plane that fired/had a lock the longest is the one that held a superior angle of attack the longest.
Other possible events could include things like "Scramble" where the planes have to start from the ground and/or flight deck of the ships and quickly get into the air to face each other.
Another possibility is if all three rounds are a draw a flurry of SAMs are launched at the end of the third round. Last plane alive is the winner.
