To be fair they're not wearing pants in that clip.

That's shorts and skirts. :Smile-_tongue:

I watched the first episode and this was my general reaction:

Then I watched the other anime airplane thing running this season: Kouya no Kotobuki Hikoutai, later that same day. Thus the fate of Girly Air Force (stupid name imho) was sealed as far as my anime viewing free time was concerned. The difference was night and day, or one that more resembles the difference between a large steak and cow dung. Kotobuki was the steak and had far more personality displayed in the first 3 minutes than Girly Air Forced managed in its entire first episode with it's bland generic characters.

The designs remind me of the arp stuff in game (never watched/saw it), the way they control things and other elements of the look remind me of what I've seen of Macross Frontier. 

And kinda weird aircraft choices I think. I mean, the F-15 makes sense, as Mitsubishi license builds them for the JASDF, but the F-4 and the one that I can't fully ID but closest I find is the JAS 39 gripen, kinda scratching my head.

You are correct. She/It's a SAAB Gripen.

Speaking of planes, anyone else notice the Beriev MBR-2 seaplanes on the Archipelago map?

Oh, it's not so bad. I'm watching both, and while it's true that Kouya no Kotobuki Hikoutai is far more enjoyable, Girly Air Force is also somewhat interesting. I don't find GAF to be that bad enough to drop & stop watching instantly. Of course, it's all subjective so I don't blame you for not liking it, but I say it's not as terrible as you make it out to be.

When she first popped out of the cockpit and kissed the MC, I said to my friend "Wait, are we watching Darling in the Franxx?"
I lost interest pretty quick, the only part I found interesting was that main character and his GF being Chinese, it's an interesting change

MC is actually Japanese. A bit of spoilers:

Spoiler

His mom got work in China as a flight instructor or something, and took her son with her, years prior to the event shown in first episode.

Too bad his GF has such a tiny role, as the show goes along.

They modeled the Type 054A frigate nicely in the first episode, plus some J-7D, which in real life has long been retired.  Even modeled the AAM-5.

 

However they modeled the wrong missile coming out from the 054A's VLS.  Instead of the HQ-16 SAMs, the show modeled the YU-8 ASROC and launched it like a SAM.

 

 

Look how similar that scene is to this real picture.  Except for the missiles which they picked the wrong one.

Oh they were not hard to catch.   These were in the opening scenes where the MC and her girlfriend are fleeing China on a convoy to Japan.
