There is a mistake referreing the MC-130 as Talon, in fact is the Combat Talon as MC-130E Combat Talon I and MC-130H Combat Talon II. if what written in this article was true, they would be Combat Talon II and Combat Talon III after the T-38, and they are not --Jor70 (talk) 13:26, 3 November 2010 (UTC)
Anime - Macross and Simoun
Macross Mecha and Simoun things should be removed. The mecha are mecha, so should not be listed here. Simoun aren't "aircraft" either, they're mystical spirit things. 126.96.36.199 (talk) 21:05, 2 March 2011 (UTC) Agreed. I will Remove it. --188.8.131.52 (talk) 10:05, 5 June 2011 (UTC)
Why still here?
Not to make a big deal out of it but the topic of this article doesn't seem to be encyclopedic (could be classified as original research). The different items discussed are completely and entirely unrelated save for the fact that they all are theoretically aircraft and all are made up. If the article actually discussed the topic of inventing aircraft for fiction and used some of these individual cases as examples that could be considered encyclopedic (though notability would be questionable). But as it stands the article does not show merit either as a normal article (no clearly discussed topic) or as a list article (if it is a list then it is too detailed).
- I agree with you that this is a very weak article. A simple improvement would be for the title of this article to change to "list of fictional aircraft from fiction" or something like that. I did not read the list comprehensively, but this one caught my eye:
- Messerschmitt Me 263. In Aces: Iron Eagle III, the drug-dealing ex-Nazi villain flies this jet fighter aircraft, which was supposedly developed by the Germans towards the end of World War II. It was in reality a Scaled Composites ARES. In real life, the Me 263 was a prototype advanced version of the rocket-powered Me 163.
and I couldn't help but think that the Ace's author wished to use the idea of a real Me 263, but not having one available, the director used as a stand-in or a prop (as an actor ha ha) an aircraft that also exists; i.e. this is not a fictional aircraft but an actual one, with a different actual as a stand-in. 184.108.40.206 (talk) 05:04, 17 October 2013 (UTC)
May I suggest adding the Mk.2/Type 2 titan, the UD-12 Shepherd, the UD-6 Talon, the Type 4 Doragon, and the BTR-20 Yastreb? They are all aerial vehicles from the 2006 DICE video game, Battlefield 2142. 220.127.116.11 (talk) 14:54, 28 January 2012 (UTC)
