I'm messing with a fictional scenario I created, "What do I do to my ww1-ww2 aircraft to use them to defend against a drone fleet?
The "drones" for convenience, think MQ 1 Predator.
The aircraft to modify are (any) fighter plane(s) of the ww1 - ww2 era. While it has to be based off of those planes, you have full access to any modern modification you need, just remember that the decision was made to cut costs, as upgrading the existing fleet was easier and cheaper than ordering another.
Because reasons, the engines of the aircraft are electric, delivering the same power, and all. The battery weight and all related inconveniences here, are simply a suggestion. No need to worry about that.
Things like "jamming equipment" (yeah yeah, unspecifics, my bad) are already installed,
I just need a way for these aircraft to get close enoeugh to said enemy drone to use its MGs to destroy it (personally, I'd prefer for MGs and against alternatives, like missles, but if needed, I'll use it)
With all that, what do you do to these aircraft to allow them to get close enough *without getting shot down by the enemy missle(s), so that their MGs get a chance?
