Quite a lot of designs are coming out of Gothia works and they don't have a government to subsidize them if they are in need of cash. Foreign sales are reasonable, but probably not enough is coming in to create masses of new designs. There'll probably be a shortage of design staff as well.

You never know where all the money is coming from.
*secretly sends lots of money to GW*

... I completely forgot that I created the AFSG (Anonymous Financial Support Group; a group of extremely wealthy people) back when we were about halfway in the 1920s. Some of its members could be financing GW.

I have to admit, RA has a good point.

There are more designs coming out of GW than all Atlantean firms combined.

Not really, Italian/Atlantean/SAE/ Other State manufacturers design towards an official specification while an independent company must release a lot of studies to get sales and many prototypes remain that. Of 11 studies so far presented by GW 1 has entered production and two are about to. Once a study has generated enough interest and perhaps orders it advances towards production status.

True but designs still cost money to produce. unless you have a state funding them or at least purchasing your existing more successfull designs you'll run out of money fast.

With GW I'd expect more multi purpose designs. Bombers designed from civilian airframes, Torpedo bombers that can be used as scouts ect. that would be a huge cost savings measure and would free up cash for actual prototypes to be built as well.

Which is why studies are made to see what is generating interest if positive then it goes to detailed/production design
customers show firm interest then it goes to prototype/demonstrator. And in WW I have yet to see a civilian airframe posted.
