The main goal is to conduct a comparison of the results obtained from the application of a Linear Quadratic Regulator (LQR) and a Linear Time-invariant Model Predictive Controller (MPC) in an F-86 Sabre, while path planning techniques and a nonlinear guidance law are employed. The code accomplishes a blitz mission, bombarding a specified area with M117 Demolition Bombs. A Recursive Rewarding Adaptive Cell Decomposition (RR-ACD) algorithm is utilized in order to calculate a reference trajectory based on avoiding obstacles and respecting constraints, afterwards, a Smooth 3D Path Planning (S-3D-PP) algorithm improves the path and defines a velocity profile. The mentioned controllers and a nonlinear guidance law are key to fulfill the mission. An analysis about flight parameters, fuel mass consumption, bombarding accuracy and wind velocities is made.
