I've gotten a few submissions as of late that either skirt the definition of "Hard SF" or are actually "Soft SF". Most space fighter designs are for the most part Soft SF. Not all, ones that operate in both atmosphere and NEO or strictly orbital, are possible, but will have major restrictions. However, every space fighter that has appeared in SciFi movies are Soft SF. They are impossibly small, impossibly fast, carry massive firepower, and have a range of operation that would exceed most realistic spacecraft designs.

But instead of me ranting on, let me point you to the Atomic Rockets site:

Rockets Are Not Fighter Planes:

If it flies and maneuvers like a WWII fighter plane, it's not a spaceship.

I have small series (that will be expanded) of pixel art pictures about historic space crafts (here)
I would like to add them to this group, and there seems to be a proper category for it, bu t I can't submit them to this category...
Are there some limitations for this?

I would suggest putting them under "Real Spaceships".

I would do that, but this category is unavailable for me...
I have only hard, medium hard, cinematic hard SF and other hard space exploration.

I checked, and it should be available. So, instead, you can submit them to "Featured" and I'll move them to the correct folder. Not a problem.

Yes, within reason. We are looking for realistic designs.

I'd put it under "Other Hard Space Exploration". That would be a good fit for parts and assemblies.
