The design of a precision attack bomber aircraft is presented in this paper. Design requirements were selected from market analysis. The minimum requirements for aircraft design, extracted from market analysis were: - range: 1140 nm, maximum Mach number: 1.05, ceiling: 55000 ft., payload: 47000 lb., load factor: ranging from +6 to -2.5. The aircraft should be capable of carrying one crew members. The aircraft had to materialize a certain mission profile. This mission profile contains the flight segments like taxi, take-off, climb, cruise, cruise (payload dropping), descend and landing. The basic disciplines of aircraft design like aerodynamics, propulsion, engineering design, flight dynamics and management skill were carried out during design process. Initially in conceptual design phase, configuration of the basic components of aircraft such as wing, tail, propulsion system, fuselage, landing gear were selected through figure of merit analysis.
