    1. CH-124 Sea King

      CH-124 pack for SF2
       ______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
      Based on the SH-3D AND SeaKingMK41 made by Florian. 
       ______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
       
      This is the CH-124 Sea King as used by the RCAF for the SF2 series of games.
       
      The skins represent the schemes used by the RCAF on their CH-124 Sea Kings.

      The serial numbers in this skin pack along with planes numbers are real one's. 

      You will get the following skins in this package :
      CH-124A        circa 1963
      CH-124B        circa 1974
      CH-124B        circa 1991
       
      * Note : I did not touched the model, so visually only the CH-124A 1963 variant will look like the real one.  Thanks to Florian who made a change to my CH-124A lod, i am able to depict a CH-124B look alike as the dome radar has been put on the modified LOD. So unless someone is doing modeling work on this bird to add the RCAF goodies like the Flir, sunoboys launchers and a few other things someday, only the skins for the 1974 and 1991 variant will reflect the real birds.
       

      I HIGHLY recommand to install the complete aircraft as follow.
      COMPLETE AIRCRAFT :

      Copy the CH-124 Objects/aircraft folders content to your game aircraft folder.
      Copy the CH-124 Objects/decals folder content to your game decals folder.
      Copy the CH-124 Objects/pilots folders content to your game pilots folder.
      Copy the CH-124 Objects/weapons folders content to your game weapons folder.
      Copy the files in the CH-124 Objects files to your game objects folder.
      Copy the CH-124 Sounds folder content to your game sounds folder.
       
      Credits:
      - Thirdwire
      - Florian for the great SH-3D model AND SeaKingMK41. But more for having modified the LOD file so i could depict the ''B'' version.
      - Myself for the decals and rework :)
       
      Happy flights!

      ANIMATION 4 - floaters. (only if loaded)
       
      Like in previously realased Cayuse family aircrafts here you can also fly low and slow.
      I am sugesting to fly low on 40-50% of throttle. around 45degree vector control, use pulse rudder to control left right, it is realy easy. With little practice you can even hoover and follow ship with same speed and height. Without fake flaps and airbrakes. Important here is to control using rudder and vector thrust control.
       
      Skins covers aircrafts used by 6 escuadrilla of Spanish Navy from 1972 untill late 90s. Later they repainted remaining aircrafts with grey scheme.
      All numbers are historicaly correct and are based on available photos. Including losses of airframes.
       
      Have fun.
      Edit your way.
      And report bugs.
      you should probably thank acesfakia who asked me to do this.

      This is a third party addon of Sikorsky helicopter S-65 (and CH-53A).
      The original flight model is standard as on many free to download helicopters modified by me. I am not using airbrakes or flaps but flying fsat and slow is stil possible, even hovering with little practice.

      ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
      This is part that no one will read..but feels like I need to share this:
       
      This mod represents Sikorsky S-65 C-3 models used by Israeli Air Force
      History of Yasur in Israel air Force is somehow complicated. I was trying to represent all sub-models that served until now. (exept yasur2025)
      S-65 was export version based on HH-53C model.
       
      All serials are correct but not always represents specific units (although Ive put lot of effort to sort serials - and its realy hard as always in all Israeli serials from 60-80 period)
      Ive split this pack into few sub variants.
      Long story in short:
      Israel received first batch S-65 C-3 in august 1970.(some sources give date 1969) already with two digit numbers. Later reserialed with added prefix 1 to numbers. This batch was called 'Series A'
      Second batch of Yasur helicopters was delivered in July 1971. 5 aircrafts with serials started with 2 (although for some time it carried prefix1) its called 'Series B'.
      Third group consisted 6 aircrafts was delivered between 1972-1973. Aircrafts received prefix 3 and was called 'Series C' also there were few diferences in avionics and all 6 aircrafts were equipped with starlight nvg system.
      Fourt group was named 'Series D' and prefixed 4. Delivered after 1973 war. Eight helicopters from USMC surplus. Most prominent difference between S-65C-3 is absence of refueling probe and auxiliary fuel tanks. Also different avionics and differnet armor plates in various points of airframe. In late 80s (probably) four of them vere upgraded into late Yasur S-65 version called 'Series G' and seirals prefixed 7,(aux fuel tanks and upgraded avionics).
      Other four remained unchanged to keep ability to recover UAV (MARS method).
      Next fifth batch of 18(17) aircraft serials prefixed with 5 and 'called Series E' delivered somewhere in 1974-75 It was standard S-65C3 variant but with Titanium blades and again changes in avionics.
      Series six were two aircrafts purchased from Austria in May 1991. And prefixed 6. Right after delivery it received all Yasur 2000 standart upgrades.
      Next and last batch of delivery is again USMC surplus CH-53A airframes delivered after Gulf War (April and September) 1991. Around 10 airworthy airframes. (Plus around 8 airframes in 1993 that were used as spare parts - not received serials nor designation) All aircraft were prefixed 8. And remain in service in standard USMC grey/black/green scheme, until some of them (seven) were designated for upgrade to current Yasur standards.
       
      In 1992 IAF started Yasur 2000 program. During this upgrades each helicopter that underwent conversion serial number was changed. S-65C3 plus two ex-Austrians received prefix 0. All other helicopters that were still in service were upgraded to Yasur 2000 variant and received prefix 9. (those are aiframes of old CH-53A without aux fuel tanks and refueling probe) Visible difference is addition of support braces on fuel tanks pylons.
       
      This is where ive put my "experimental mod" - decal on node.
      In Yasur 2000 mod aircrafts have invisible support braces. BUT airframes with serials started with 9 have decals assigned to braces to make them visible. Its not perfect - but for now only known for me way to make it work. (As i want to distinguished 0 / 9 serials).
       
      in game aircrafts will apear with following years of service:
       
      Yasur CH-53A Sea Stallion (1973-1992)
      Yasur S-65 C3 '69 (1969-1985)
      Yasur S-65 C3 '86 (1985-1992)
      Yasur 2000 (1993-2050)
      ******************IMPORTANT******************
       
      Standard commands:
       
      rescue op:
      Open "bombbay" doors - cargo ramp and right side hatch/door
      ANIMATION 1 - side doors
      ANIMATION 2 - left hatch cabin windows
      ANIMATION 3 - wipers outside/inside
      ANIMATION 4 - refueling probe -extend
      ANIMATION 9 - deploy PJ (only if loaded via loadout menu)
      ANIMATION 10 - lower/raise hoist.
      Animation 8, 9 and 10 have speed limit. So you can't hoist on full speed
       
      With little practice you can hoover. Without fake flaps and airbrakes.
      Important here to control is using rudder and vector thrust control.
      With heavy cargo load probably you need little run on A model as engines on A are little underpowered.
      Normaly throtle vector control on 88-89 degree increase power 70% then slowly more and more, wait and it will take off.
       
      Cockpits.
      new upgraded cockpit compared to earlier models.
      Yasur 2000 pit is much more as guesspit.
       
      Few differences between models mostly in humps/bumps/sensors dispensers.
       
      Weapons.
      The only "offensive" weapon is left/right side gunner.
       
      Skins included covers several years of use in Israeli 3 color, first brown and late 80s light brown and unique USMC 3 clolor scheme.
       
      Pilots - best to use is OldDiego's pilots.
       
      This mod probably still needs some work. But I am afraid that if I will not upload it, I might never fully finish.
      Have fun.
      Edit your way.
      And report bugs.
       
      Jarek Hereda.
       
      Thanks to everyone who helped me with this.
      And thanks for all support.

    5. HS.9 SeaKing. Arma Aerea de la Armada Española

      This is simple remod, of Florian's Sea King model
      Representing Spanish Navy Sikorsky HS.9 SeaKing.
      Model itself is Florian work and all hail to him for his work.

      ---------------------------------------------
      The names of all contributors, modders, suppliers, etc =MUST= be listed in any new readmes.
      This package and any part of it may NOT in any way, shape or form be used in any payware additions.
      Any persons wishing to make further modfications, MUST remember to put everyone's name in it.

      You need FakePilot mod to use this addon/
      Model itself is untouched by me.

      All decals are made by me and are based on available documents and photos - historicaly correct.

      Skins represents only operator - 5 Escuadrilla of Spanish Navy. Repreents only early paint / model version from 1966 to early 90's

      This helo got new ini work. So if you have old Florian SeaKing - do a backup. Becasue this is new and you might not like it.
      new aircraft data ini with new flight model, and few differences
      animation keys reassigned.

      Right side rear slide doors are opened as bomb_bay
      left side slide door as ANIMATION KEY 1
      Rotor brake ANIMATION KEY 7
      Folding rotor ANIMATION KEY 8

      Ive put some speed limits for animations up to 30 kts for doors,and rotor animation so you can fold onboard vessel.
      Flying is done same way as in my helos. Vector thrust controll, etc.. it is pretty simple.

      Last thing:
      There is new cockpit. As replacement ive done some simple generic cockpit for SH-3. Since there is lot of versions of SeaKing lot of pits, this is generic and simple build, that should fit here.
      Consider it as beta, few things are not working there.

      ***************
      THIS COCKPIT FOR SH-3 SEA KING OR ANY PART OF IT MUST NOT BE HOSTED OR
      POSTED FOR DOWNLOAD ON ANY OTHER WEB SITE WITHOUT MY EXPRESS
      PERMISSION, OR USED FOR ANY OTHER PURPOSE THAN THIRDWIRE FLIGHT
      SIMULATORS, AND MUST NOT BE SOLD OR OFFERED FOR SALE BY ITSELF
      OR WITH ANY OTHER FILES OR MODS.
      ***************

      Unpack the files.
      Drop all files into your mod folder the way they are set in this pack.

      Credits:
      Florian - BIG thanks for model.
      Yakarov79 - me: INI work , skins, decals and cockpit. HS.9 "fake pilot" mod.

      Have fun.

      This is a third party add on of the Israeli version of Hughes 500 model helicopter using models and cockpits created by me.
      The original flight model is standard as on many free to download helicopters.
      I have just modified it a bit.
      It is designed for and works only in SF2 series.

      This is second version of my previous Lahatut.
      It is updated in lod, data.ini,skins,decals etc.
      New decal sets covering all 36 numbers.
      I have added also Lahatut 500E unarmed version.
       

      Ive named both aircrat diferently than previous ones to avoid confusion.
      Highly recomended to delete old one.
       
      Do not mix old and new files...as it will not work well.
       

      ******************IMPORTANT******************
       
      This addon works only with my WeaponPACK (included in rar file). All of weapon stations are made as specific station code and will work only with this weapon pack.
       
      Animations.
      LANDING GEAR - Nose light on/off at any speed. Don't forget to retract before shooting.
       
      ANIMATION 8 - front left door (ext and cockpit view)
       
      ANIMATION 9 - front right door (ext and cockpit view)
       
      ANIMATION 10 - rear door. (disabled in _data.ini file)
       
      ANIMATION 1 - If needed you can activate old XM70 sight to aim hydra rockets. In fact MD500 defender was offered for sale also with M27 Minigun and XM70 sight but I am not sure if IAF ever bought minigun subsystem.
       
      Like in previously realased loaches here also you can realy fly low and slow. This helo got little more power due to higher weight compared to old OH-6A
      I am sugesting to fly low on 40-50% of throttle. around 45degree vector control, use pulse rudder to control left right, it is realy easy. With little practice you can even hoover. Without fake flaps and airbrakes.
      Important here is to control using rudder and vector thrust control.
       

      Skins.
      All numbers are historicaly correct and are based on available photos. But I am not sure if those numbers are 100% correct for specific unit.
      Tayeset 160. First operational unit of Lahatut. It was used by 160Sq during first Lebanon War with AH-1S(mod)
      Tayeset 161.
      Tayeset 190. Formed in 1985 with aircrafts transfered from 160 and 161 sqns.
      Flight School also aquired few aircrafts in mid 90s.
       
      Weapons.
      TOWs - BGM-71 A/B/C/D.
      M260 7 tube rocket launcher with several different warheads.
       
      Weapons are the same as in previous helicopter packs, so if you downloaded AH-1S(mod) no need to copy weapons.

      As with all my previous helos flying is quite easy. With little practice you can even hoover. Without fake flaps and airbrakes.

    10. Sikorsky CH-53A / CH-53D Sea Stallion

      Sikorsky CH-53A and CH-53D Ver 2.0 for SF2
       
      This is a third party addon of early models Sikorsky helicopter CH-53.
      The original flight model is standard as on many free to download helicopters modified by me. I am not using airbrakes or flaps but flying fsat and slow is stil possible, even hovering with little practice.
      It is designed for and works only in SF2 series. And will never work in SF1.

      ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
      This mod represents Late model of CH-53A already with instaled EAPS and early models oF CH-53D with uprated engines.
      A never received aux fuel tanks and were used until 1992. At the end of service mostly by reserve units.
      D model early was used also until around 1992. Not every D model was upgraded so in this config they were flying until 90s.
       
      ******************IMPORTANT******************
       
      This addon works with my CargoPACK (included in rar file). All of weapon stations are made as specific station code and will work only with this cargo pack. Of course you can edit and use any other weapons availalbe.
       
      CHANGES:
       
      I higly recomend to overwrite previous files - or best is delete old one and put new files.
      Small changes in ini files, corrections on fuel loadout, changes in cockpit ini.
      Small changes in skins. Also, no longer fake weapon "no gun" is needed - thanks to The Trooper. He pointed small fix in data.ini.
       
      Standard commands:
       
      LANDING GEAR - Nose light deploy/retract at any speed.
       
      ANIMATION 1 - right side hatch and door.
      ANIMATION 2 - left hatch cabin windows
      ANIMATION 3 - wipers outside/inside
       
      Parking animations.
      Two parking animations included one for 'on land base' and other for 'on board' parking.
       
      Im including two vessels moded as USMC nation.(same as in AH-1J pack) so you can practice start and land.
      Those ships have moded catapults, deck and arresting cables in data.ini file.
      Those ships are limited only to those used during Vietnam War on WestPac/SEA cruises.
       
      You can fold tail and rotor by enabling animation in data.ini file. But it looks silly. And my intention for this animation was eye candy on board vessel.
       
      With little practice you can even hoover. Without fake flaps and airbrakes.
      Important here to control is using rudder and vector thrust control.
      With heavy cargo load probably you need little run on A model as engines on A are little underpowered.
      Normaly throtle vector control on 88-89 degree increase power 70% then slowly more and more, wait and it will take off.
       
      It is possible to land on board two included ships. don't forget about hook.
       
      Cockpits.
      One cockpit based on NATOPS manual, early model for both A and early D model.
       
      Both models are similiar. Only diference is in engine power. D model is 'stronger' so it's easyier with heavy loadouts. And only D can tow 'experimental' Mk105 minesweeper.
       
      Skins.
      All serial numbers are based on available photos, and USMC documents and are historicaly correct.
       
      Weapons.
      The only "offensive" weapon is left/right side gunner. Well it is quite defensive weapon.
      Important - if there is no gunner - fake weapon (no gun/empty) must be loaded. For now it must be this way.
       
      Ah.. there is Napalm barrel bombs. Used in Vietnam War.
      ...BOOM.
       
      Cargo loads.
       
      I am releasing this cargo load in current condition. So maybe some skinnse needs to be adjusted.
      Cargo loads includes few cargo crates for cargo bay and hook, howitzer, MUTTs.
       
      in 1973 USMC joined NAVY in operation End Sweep and equipped their D model (HMH-463 only) with minesweeping stuff. So here you can "tow" Mk105 mine sweeper. It is just interim mk105. V.2 is under development.
      To see Mk105 open cargo bay.
       
      IMPORTANT -
      Due tu construction of this mod it is better to use collision and landing on NORMAL setting. On hard you may have some complications on airfield - especialy with underslung cargo load.
       
      Countermeasures.
      In mid 80 there is available CMDS. If you got AH-1J pack from me you don't have to copy these weapons.
      Or you can overwrite. It is just data ini files, as lod for dispenser is part of airframe.
       
      Skins.
      All serial numbers as far as I know are based on photos and US Army docs and are historicaly correct.
       
      CH-53A in vietnam used by HMH-463 and HMH-361.
      In mid 80s A model was still in use by some units. One of the last unit to use CH-53A was HMH-772 until 1992 when they send A to AMARC.
      Also in mid 80s ( I belive it was in middle or late) US Navy composite squadron VC-1 was using old ex-marine CH-53A until 1992 when they send them to AMARC. I think they were using only these two aircrafts.
       
      CH-53D
      Few paintings for different years, early green early 80s green and tri-color mid 80s.
      HMH-361, HMH-362, HMH-461, HMH-461 - two schemes one - 78 from trip to Japan and one 1973 during operation End Sweep.
       
      Pilots - best to use is OldDiego's pilots.
       
      This mod still needs some work. But I am afraid that if I will not upload it now, I might never fully finish. BUt I am still working on it.
      Hope I did not mess up things here too much.
       
      Have fun.
      Edit and report bugs.

      This mod represents Late model of CH-53D with instaled EAPS and auxiliary fuel tanks. Ive split this model into two versions. Early with RWR blisters and AN/ALE-39 flare/chaff dispenser and late with some more blissters, new doubled CMD dispensers and ALQ-144 IR jammer on fuel tank pylons.
      Ant this will be the last model of Sea Stallion from me.
       

      ******************IMPORTANT******************
       
      Standard commands:
      LANDING GEAR - Nose light deploy/retract at any speed.
       
      ANIMATION 1 - right side hatch and door.
      ANIMATION 2 - left hatch cabin windows

      Normaly throtle vector control on 88-89 degree increase power 70% then slowly more and more, wait and it will take off.
       

      Cockpits.
      new upgraded cockpit compared to earlier models.
      Just few differences between 80 and 99 version.
      Fuel usage is not super perfect but compared to all previous H-53 models released here by me - fuel gauges are working now.
      Soon all prevous pack will be updated also.
       

      Few differences between models mostly in humps/bumps/sensors dispensers.
       
       
       
      Weapons.
      The only "offensive" weapon is left/right side gunner. Well it is quite defensive weapon.
      Unlike in previous models here countermeasures are part of aircrat and no need to load them via weaponstations.
       
      Skins.
      All serial numbers are based on available photos, and USMC documents and are historicaly correct.
      For model 99 all serial numbers are correct and seems like correct for specific units. But modex numbers might not be correct - numbers depends on deployments/operations/etc.
      All serial numbers as far as I know are based on photos and US Army docs and are historicaly correct.
       
      One specific folder for Desert Storm Mod Fans. Including one of two units operating D model during Desert Storm - HMH-462
       
      Model 80
      two generic paints green and 3color paint scheme.
       
      Model 99
      HMH-362, HMH-363 and HMH-463 operating CH-53D at the end of service of this aircraft. In 2012 CH-53D was finaly retired.

    12. Agusta ASH-3 Sea King Over Persia

      This is simple remod, overhaul of Florian's Sea King model
      Representing Agusta ASH-3D Sea King as delivered to Iranian Navy.
      Model itself is Florian work and all hail to him for his work.

      This package and any part of it may NOT in any way, shape or form be used in any payware additions.
      Any persons wishing to make further modfications, MUST remember to put everyone's name in it.
       
      This mod represents Agusta ASH-3D and ASH-3D/TS Sea King as delivered to Iranian Navy in 1978.
      Via fake pilot ive added radar dome to D and D/TS versions.
      Iran oredered 17 D versions and 3 D/TS.
       
      Model itself is untouched by me.
       
      Ive made skins similiar as in RH-53D representing 3 colour schemes. early white/grey 1978, 1990 grey paint and current blue camo paint
       
      All decals are made by me and are based on available documents and photos. So lets say - historicaly correct.
      Iranian Navy is using only 3 aircrafts model D/TS and 17 D version.
       
      This helo got new ini work. So if you have old Florian SeaKing - do a backup. Becasue this is new and you might not like it.
      new aircraft data ini with new flight model, and few differences
      animation keys reassigned.
       

      Right side rear slide doors are opened as bomb_bay
      left side slide door as ANIMATION KEY 1
       
      Rotor brake ANIMATION KEY 7
      Folding rotor ANIMATION KEY 8
       
      Ive put some speed limits for animations up to 30 kts for doors,and rotor animation so you can fold onboard vessel.
       
      Flying is done same way as in my helos. Vector thrust controll, etc.. it is pretty simple.
       
      This aircraft is using same nation as previously released RH-53D for Iran Navy - called IranNavy.
       

      Last thing:
      There is new cockpit. As replacement ive done some simple generic cockpit for SH-3. Since there is lot of versions of SeaKing lot of pits, this is generic and simple build, that should fit here.
      Consider it as beta, few things are not working there.

    13. Sikorsky SH-3 Sea King SF2. re-mod.

      This is simple remod, overhaul of Florian's Sea King model.
      Model itself is Florian work and all hail to him for his work.
       
      ---------------------------------------------
      The names of all contributors, modders, suppliers, etc =MUST= be listed in any new readmes.
      This package and any part of it may NOT in any way, shape or form be used in any payware additions.
      Any persons wishing to make further modfications, MUST remember to put everyone's name in it.
       
      This mod represents SH-3D and some versions of SH-3A used by US Navy for CSAR operations.
       
      Althoug Florian's SH-3 represents something between A-D Generaly it fits here but are not hundred% correct.
      There were also two D versions with small differences...but this is different story.
       
      This is version 2 uploadaed with smaler size of skins.
      You can also download only skins in seperate rar file.
       
      Model itself is untouched by me. Only in A version ive removed few bits by ini work.
      Using Florian's skins ive made templates and new skins.
       
      In this pack SH-3D skins are:
       
      HS-4 'Black Knights' USS Ticonderoga 1971
      HS-5 'Night Dippers' USS Wasp 1970
      HS-11 'Dragonslayers' USS John F. Kennedy 1976
       
      SH-3A is made for Wings over Vietnam mod.
      It represents only one unit:
      HS-6 'Indians' USS Kearsarge 1966-1968 at Yankee Station.
      Plus additional one skin with shortly used camo paint.
       
      All decals are made by me and are based on available documents and photos. So lets say - historicaly correct.
       
      This helo got new ini work. So if you have old Florian SeaKing - do a backup. Becasue this is new and you might not like it.
      new aircraft data ini with new flight model, and few differences
      animation keys reassigned.
       
      Sonar and MAD operations are same as before, ANIMATION KEYS 3,4,5
      Right side rear slide doors are opened as bomb_bay
      left side slide door as ANIMATION KEY 1
       
      Rotor brake ANIMATION KEY 7
      Folding rotor ANIMATION KEY 8
       
      Ive put some speed limits for animations up to 30 kts for doors,and rotor animation so you can fold onboard vessel.

    14. AH-1F /S(MC) Cobra ver.2016

      BELL AH-1F / S(MC) COBRA Ver 1.0 for SF2
       
      January 2016.
       
      This is a third party add on of the AH-1S(MC) / F Cobra using models and cockpits created by me.
      The original flight model is standard as on many free to download helicopters.
      I have just modified it a bit.
       
      It is designed for and works only in the SF2 series.
       
      WeaponPACK for this model is also included.

      ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
       
      This addon works only with included WeaponPACK. All of weapon stations are made as specific station code and will work only with this weapon pack.
       
      Standard commands for activating Cobra features:
       
      AIRBRAKES - sun filter/shader on off - just for fun no airbrakes so empty animation slot for use.
       
      ARRESTING HOOK - jump from pilot station to gunner station.
       
      LANDING GEAR - skid search light on/off at any speed. Dont forget to retract it because you wil be not able to shoot.
       
      ANIMATION 8 - ammo bay dooors
       
      ANIMATION 9 - gunner door (ext and cockpit view)
       
      ANIMATION 10 - pilot door (ext and cockpit view)
       
      ANIMATION 1 - NVG (It is not nvg but some greent filter) If you don't like it disable it in cockpitini file.
       
      AH-1F was Step 3 upgrade program of Army Cobra. This variant was originally known as the AH-1S(MC) – Modified Cobra. In this model Army Cobra featured the three -barell 20mm M197 automatic cannon mounted in XM97 universal turret. The AH-1F also featured an improved rocekt management system for 2.75 inch rockets, an improved sighting system, and a more powerful electrical generator to support all new systems. It was later upgraded with engine inlet deflectors to allow using WFAR rockets with Mk66 motor.
       
      For take off: Around 75% of throttle vector - and then increase power to 70-85% (or more for quick lift) and pull controll stick little and snake will take off. Then reduce throttle vector as needed and reduce power to 69%. It should fly around 110kts now. 69% is about cruising speed.
      When on the ground you can see rotating blades for pitch and roll. Just additional and unnecesary thing (not visible so much when flying) but it is possible so it is there. Not working like i want but better then nothing.
       
      There are two different pylons on inboard stations one for rocketpods one for gunpods. Just to have a proper angle of fire with GP. It is not proper for real model but in my opinion best what can be done for SF engine. Rocket pods are ok with correct angle on inboard stations.
       
      NVG.
      Unfortunately there is no NVG in this game.
      I just added green "filter" to cockpit and you can activate it by default Animation 1 key.
      In external view ther will be little change in cockpit- unfortunately not moving with pilot/guner head.
      In copit view there is green glow and filter It is definitely not helping during night flight but this is beta version. Maybe one day real nvg will be possible here. If you dont like it disable it in cockpit.ini file. This feature apears only in National Guard 85 model and bonus,
       
      Skins:
      This pack is divided into two parts for Wings over "anywhere" and Desert Storm.
       
      For Desert Storm there is seperate model with 3 skins / units:
      C-troop 1st Sq(Air),7th Cav.
      2nd ACR.
      1st Sq(Air),1th Cav.
       
      Other wings over Europe, Asia anywhere
       
      Early F model as delivered to Army in early 80s
      4th Sq(Air),7th Cav. Budingen Germany 1988
      1st Sq(Air),17th Cav.'Urgent Fury'Grenada 1983
      163rd ACR Utah ANG, 1983
      163 ACR Aggressor MAWTS-1, FINEX-1988
       
      Late F model with intake deflectors
      1st Sq(Air),1th Cav.
      1st Sq(Air),1th Cav. IFOR Bosnia, 1995.
      1/150th Avn Bn. New Jersey ARNG.1998
       
      All serial numbers are proper for S(MC) / F model but am not sure if these numbers appeared in specific units.
      some seiral are taken from available photos and are matched to units. Some are just placeholders but are correct for model block buid.
       
      As far as i know all numbers in Desert Storm mod are correct.
       
      Weapons.
       
      Most of the weapon are same as in previous packs and are common to G/Q/S/P/E model.
      Including XM158 and M200/M260/M261 launchers and for smoe late models M260 and M261 with Mk66 motor rockets.
      TOWs BGM-71A/B/C/D
      There is additional optional Suppressed Exhaust loaded via weaponstation.
      Also here there is new M197 automatic cannon loaded via weaponstation.
       
      One more thing. I am using mostly standard weapon effects.
      Make sure to edit it your way if you decide to use this weapons.
       
      Pilots:
      I am using helopilots by OldDiego.
      Some pilots models might be too big for this helo.
       
       
       
      Enjoy.
      Report Bugs.
      Edit your way.

    15. Sikorsky RH-53D Sea Stallion

      Sikorsky RH-53D Ver 1.0 for SF2
       

      This is a third party addon of Sikorsky helicopter RH-53D.
      The original flight model is standard as on many free to download helicopters modified by me. I am not using airbrakes or flaps but flying fsat and slow is stil possible, even hovering with little practice.
      It is designed for and works only in SF2 series. And will never work in SF1.

      This mod represents Sikorsky model of RH-53D. It was used mainly by US NAVY Mine countermeasure units. At the end od service time RH-53D were passed to USMC reserve units, where served as transport/heavy lift helicopters. Some of it were still used during Desert Shield/Storm operations in 1991. Finaly RH-53D was written off from units in 1996.
      12 aircrafts were also ordered by Imperial Iranian Navy. Only six delivered before revolution. Add then all six remained in newly formed Islamic Republic of Iran Navy Aviation.
       

      ******************IMPORTANT******************
       
      Standard commands:
       
      LANDING GEAR - Nose light deploy/retract at any speed.
      ANIMATION 1 - right side door.
      ANIMATION 2 - left hatch cabin windows
      ANIMATION 3 - wipers outside/inside
      ANIMATION 4 - Refueling probe - H key (hook by default) will change seat position to see tip of the spear.
      ANIMATION 10 - Winch
       
      Parking animations.
      Two parking animations included one for 'on land base' and other for 'on board' parking.
       
      You can fold tail and rotor by enabling animation in data.ini file. But it looks silly. And my intention for this animation was eye candy on board vessel only.
       
      With little practice you can even hoover. Without fake flaps and airbrakes.
      Important here to control is using rudder and vector thrust control.
      With heavy cargo load probably you need little run on A model as engines on A are little underpowered.
      Normaly throtle vector control on 88-89 degree increase power 70% then slowly more and more, wait and it will take off.
       
      Cockpits.
      One cockpit based on NATOPS manual.
      Can mirrors show actual mirrored position ? Or it si embeded in game to show image above head ?
       
      Skins.
      All serial numbers are based on available photos, NAVY and USMC documents and are historicaly correct.
       
      Weapons.
      The only "offensive" weapon is left/right side gunner. Well im straffing convoys with it with great success.
      Important - if there is no gunner - fake weapon (no gun/empty) must be loaded. For now it must be this way.
      Same as default should be loaded Mk103 minesweep. This is allowing top cargobays to be seen.
       
      This addon works with my CargoPACK (included in rar file). All of weapon stations are made as specific station code and will work only with this cargo pack. Of course you can edit and use any other weapons availalbe. Here is experimental Mk105 minesweeper sled different than in previous CH-53D pack. This one is only for RH-53D. To see Mk105 open cargo bay.
      Also you can add refueling probe. At the begining of service this aircraft has only provisions for refueling porbe.
       

      IMPORTANT -
      Due tu construction of this mod it is better to use collision and landing on NORMAL setting. On hard you may have some complications on airfield - especialy with underslung cargo load.
       
      Skins.
      All serial numbers as far as I know are based on photos and US Army docs and are historicaly correct.
       
      US Navy
      - HMH-12 'Sea Dragons' 1977
      - HMH-16 'Seahawks' 1979
      - HMH-14 'Vanguard' 1981
      - HMH-18 'Norsemen' 1987
      - VR-24 World's Biggest Little Airline, Helos on COD duties.
       

      USMC - special for use in Desert Storm mod if needed:
      - HMH-772 Det.A
       
      Pilots - best to use is OldDiego's pilots.
       

      Have fun.
      Edit and report bugs.

There is 6 serial numbers 9-701 to 706. (Before revolution serials started with 6-). Somewhere in 2008 another RH-53D apeared on photos with number 708. And this brought some speculations about overhauled RH-53D that was left in Iran on Desert One site during Eagle Claw operation in april 1980.

      Parking animations.
      Two parking animations included one for 'on land base' and other for 'on board' parking.
       
      You can fold tail and rotor by enabling animation in data.ini file. But it looks silly. And my intention for this animation was eye candy on board vessel only.
       
      With little practice you can even hoover. Without fake flaps and airbrakes.
      Important here to control is using rudder and vector thrust control.
      With heavy cargo load probably you need little run on A model as engines on A are little underpowered.
      Normaly throtle vector control on 88-89 degree increase power 70% then slowly more and more, wait and it will take off.
       
      Cockpits.
      One cockpit based on NATOPS manual.
      Can mirrors show actual mirrored position ? Or it si embeded in game to show image above head ?
       
      Skins.
      All serial numbers are based on available photos, NAVY and USMC documents and are historicaly correct.
       
      Weapons.
      The only "offensive" weapon is left/right side gunner. Well im straffing convoys with it with great success.
      Important - if there is no gunner - fake weapon (no gun/empty) must be loaded. For now it must be this way.
      Same as default should be loaded Mk103 minesweep. This is allowing top cargobays to be seen.
       
      This addon works with my CargoPACK (included in rar file). All of weapon stations are made as specific station code and will work only with this cargo pack. Of course you can edit and use any other weapons availalbe. Here is experimental Mk105 minesweeper sled different than in previous CH-53D pack. This one is only for RH-53D. To see Mk105 open cargo bay.
      Also you can add refueling probe. At the begining of service this aircraft has only provisions for refueling porbe.
       
      IMPORTANT -
      Due tu construction of this mod it is better to use collision and landing on NORMAL setting. On hard you may have some complications on airfield - especialy with underslung cargo load.

      Skins for 1977 Imperial Iranian Navy
      Islamic Republic of Iran Navy Aviation with 3 skins 1979 paint inherited from IINavy, Grey paint introduced somewhere in 90's and late current azure blue salamander camo.
      Iranian Navy Aviation.
      Good to add is nations ini entry regarding new created "nation" Islamic Republic of Iran Navy /Imperial Iranian Navy.
      otherwise you will have to change nation name to Iran.

      It is designed for and works in the SF2 only.
       
      WeaponAdd for this model is also included.

      WARNING!
       
      This is totaly new file. I highly recomend to backup your old files. OR just delete all old files. Even weapon folders. It is updated here.
      This is totaly new files and will not work in many parts with old.
       
      This model is based on previous J model with little modifications. Representing J International model exported to Iran. And J TOW International Cobra - modified J Cobra TOW capable aircraft. Only user of this model was also Iran and South Korea which used 8 aircrafts between 1978-2004.
       
      Pack includes 3 aircrafts as I made it specific for Iran and South Korea.
      Cockpits included.
       
      This addon works only with included WeaponPACK. All of weapon stations are made as specific station code and will work only with this weapon pack.
       
      Standard commands for activating Cobra features:
      With some differenced compared to G model.
       
      AIRBRAKES - jump from pilot station to gunner station.
       
      ARRESTING HOOK - deploy arresting hook to land on aircraft carrier.
       
      LANDING GEAR - belly light deploy/retract at any speed. Don't forget to fold before shooting.
       
      A2A mode - gunner station guncross for turret.
       
      A2Ground mode - pilot M60 gunsight cross.
       
      ANIMATION 7 - turret doors
       
      ANIMATION 8 - ammo bay dooors
       
      ANIMATION 9 - gunner door (ext and cockpit view)
       
      ANIMATION 10 - pilot door (ext and cockpit view)
       

      For take off: Around 75% of throttle vector (small needle on RPM clock in cockpit should be like 65degree up) - (default ctrl + ) and then increase power to 70-85% (or more for quick lift) and pull controll stick little and snake will take off. Then reduce throttle vector as needed and reduce power to 69%. It should fly around 110kts now. 69% is about cruising speed.
       
      When on the ground you can see rotating blades for pitch and roll. Just additional and unnecesary thing (not visible so much when flying) but it is possible so it is there. Not working like i want but better then nothing.
       
      There are two different pylons on inboard stations one for rocketpods one for gunpods. Just to have a proper angle of fire with GP. It is not proper for real model but in my opinion best what can be done for SF engine. Rocket pods are ok with correct angle on inboard stations.
       

      All serial numbers are historicaly correct for each country.
       
      Nations.
      I've set nation name for Iran. In my instal Iran - Islamic Republic of Iran Air Force. Same with J Tow model and plus SKorea- which is Republic of Korea Air Force.
      You might want to add new nation as It should be - Islamic Republic of Iran Army Aviation
      And Republic of Korea Army Aviation - ROKAA not ROKAF.
       
      But as always you can mod it your way.
       
      Skins:
      I've included skins for Iranian Army Aviation for both J and J TOW model representing early Imperial Iranian Army Aviation and post revolutionary Islamic Republic of Iran Army Aviation.
      Also South Korean Army Aviation is represented by early and late type of painting.
      During Iran-Iraq war Iranian army did some test with launching AGM-65 missiles. But reports says airframe sufers structural damage.
      Here I made possible to load Mavericks for Iranian AH-1J.
       
      Pilots:
      I am using usnpilots by OldDiego. Not included.
      Some pilots models might be too big for this helo.
       
      Instalation:
       
      Copy all files into specific folders.
       
      Sounds:
      For M197gatling sound copy the lines from SOUNDLIST ADDON to your soundlist ini file.
       
      Enjoy.
      Edit your way.
      Hope everything is working fine.

    18. Fuji AH-1S Cobra Over Japan.SF2

      FUJI AH-1S COBRA Ver 1.0 for SF2
       
      July 2016.

      This addon works only with included WeaponPACK. All of weapon stations are made as specific station code and will work only with this weapon pack.
       
      Standard commands for activating Cobra features:
       
      ARRESTING HOOK - jump from pilot station to gunner station.
       
      LANDING GEAR - skid search light on/off at any speed. Dont forget to retract it because you wil be not able to shoot.

       
      ANIMATION 7 - turret doors
       
      ANIMATION 8 - ammo bay dooors
       
      ANIMATION 9 - gunner door (ext and cockpit view)
       
      ANIMATION 10 - pilot door (ext and cockpit view)
       
      ANIMATION 1 - NVG (It is not nvg but some greent filter) If you don't like it disable it in cockpitini file.
       

      AH-1S(MC) was Step 3 upgrade program of Army Cobra. In this model Army Cobra featured the three -barell 20mm M197 automatic cannon mounted in XM97 universal turret. The AH-1S(MC) also featured an improved rocekt management system for 2.75 inch rockets, an improved sighting system, and a more powerful electrical generator to support all new systems. It was later upgraded with engine inlet deflectors to allow using WFAR rockets with Mk66 motor. Japanese Fuji Factory built 92 aircrafts under license for JGSDF. While USArmy and other users were using F designation for this model JGSDF remain using S symobl for Fuji Cobra.
       
      For take off: Around 75% of throttle vector - and then increase power to 70-85% (or more for quick lift) and pull controll stick little and snake will take off. Then reduce throttle vector as needed and reduce power to 69%. It should fly around 110kts now. 69% is about cruising speed.
      When on the ground you can see rotating blades for pitch and roll. Just additional and unnecesary thing (not visible so much when flying) but it is possible so it is there. Not working like i want but better then nothing.
       
      There are two different pylons on inboard stations one for rocketpods one for gunpods. Just to have a proper angle of fire with GP. It is not proper for real model but in my opinion best what can be done for SF engine. Rocket pods are ok with correct angle on inboard stations.
       
      NVG.
      Unfortunately there is no NVG in this game.
      I just added green "filter" to cockpit and you can activate it by default Animation 1 key.
      In external view ther will be little change in cockpit- unfortunately not moving with pilot/guner head.
      In copit view there is green glow and filter It is definitely not helping during night flight but this is beta version. Maybe one day real nvg will be possible here. If you dont like it disable it in cockpit.ini file. This feature apears only in National Guard 85 model and bonus,
       

      Skins:
      Generic skin for all 5 attack helicopter units plus 2 special anniversary paint/decal set.
       

      All serial numbers are proper for Japanese Fuji S model but am not sure if these numbers are 100% correct for specific unit.
       

      Weapons.
       
      Most of the weapon are same as in previous packs and are common to G/Q/S/P/E model.
      Including XM158 and M200/M260/M261 launchers and for smoe late models M260 and M261 with Mk66 motor rockets.
      TOWs BGM-71A/B/C/D
      There is additional optional Suppressed Exhaust loaded via weaponstation.
      Also here there is new M197 automatic cannon loaded via weaponstation.
       
      One more thing. I am using mostly standard weapon effects.
      Make sure to edit it your way if you decide to use this weapons.
       
      Pilots:
      I am using helopilots by OldDiego.
      Some pilots models might be too big for this helo.
       
       
       
      Enjoy.

      This is second part of my Tzefa over Israel pack.
      In early eighties Israel received E and F model Cobra. Later all E models were upgraded to F standard.
      All Tzefa were divided into 160 and 161 squadrons.
       
      For take off: Around 75% of throttle vector - and then increase power to 70-85% (or more for quick lift) and pull controll stick little and snake will take off. Then reduce throttle vector as needed and reduce power to 69%. It should fly around 110kts now. 69% is about cruising speed.

      This addon works only with included WeaponPACK. All of weapon stations are made as specific station code and will work only with this weapon pack.
       
      Standard commands for activating Cobra features:
       
      AIRBRAKES - sun filter/shader on off - just for fun no airbrakes so empty animation slot for use.
       
      ARRESTING HOOK - jump from pilot station to gunner station.
       
      LANDING GEAR - skid search light on/off at any speed. Dont forget to retract it because you wil be not able to shoot.

       
      ANIMATION 8 - ammo bay dooors
       
      ANIMATION 9 - gunner door (ext and cockpit view)
       
      ANIMATION 10 - pilot door (ext and cockpit view)
       
      ANIMATION 1 - NVG (It is not nvg but some greent filter) If you don't like it disable it in cockpitini file.
       

      This pack includes foreign users of F and E model Cobra.
      Royal Bahraini Air Force
      Jordanian Air Force
      Republic of Korea Army Aviation
      Thai Army
       
      All serial numbers are historicaly correct. As far as I know.
      If someone got some corrections to serials let me know.
       
      AH-1F was Step 3 upgrade program of Army Cobra. This variant was originally known as the AH-1S(MC) – Modified Cobra. In this model Army Cobra featured the three -barell 20mm M197 automatic cannon mounted in XM97 universal turret. The AH-1F also featured an improved rocekt management system for 2.75 inch rockets, an improved sighting system, and a more powerful electrical generator to support all new systems. It was later upgraded with engine inlet deflectors to allow using WFAR rockets with Mk66 motor.
       
      For take off: Around 75% of throttle vector - and then increase power to 70-85% (or more for quick lift) and pull controll stick little and snake will take off. Then reduce throttle vector as needed and reduce power to 69%. It should fly around 110kts now. 69% is about cruising speed.
      When on the ground you can see rotating blades for pitch and roll. Just additional and unnecesary thing (not visible so much when flying) but it is possible so it is there. Not working like i want but better then nothing.
       
      There are two different pylons on inboard stations one for rocketpods one for gunpods. Just to have a proper angle of fire with GP. It is not proper for real model but in my opinion best what can be done for SF engine. Rocket pods are ok with correct angle on inboard stations.
       
      NVG.
      Unfortunately there is no NVG in this game.
      I just added green "filter" to cockpit and you can activate it by default Animation 1 key.
      In external view ther will be little change in cockpit- unfortunately not moving with pilot/guner head.
      In copit view there is green glow and filter It is definitely not helping during night flight but this is beta version. Maybe one day real nvg will be possible here. If you dont like it disable it in cockpit.ini file. This feature apears only in National Guard 85 model and bonus,
       

      Weapons.
       
      Most of the weapon are same as in previous packs and are common to G/Q/S/P/E model.
      Including XM158 and M200/M260/M261 launchers and for smoe late models M260 and M261 with Mk66 motor rockets.
      TOWs BGM-71A/B/C/D
      There is additional optional Suppressed Exhaust loaded via weaponstation.
      Also here there is new M197 automatic cannon loaded via weaponstation.
       
      One more thing. I am using mostly standard weapon effects.
      Make sure to edit it your way if you decide to use this weapons.
       
      Pilots:
      I am using helopilots by OldDiego.
      Some pilots models might be too big for this helo.
       
       
       
      Enjoy.

      In 1995-96 Turkish army decided to upgrade old P model. It was sent to Israel for upgrades. And it was brought to late Israeli F model standard.. But still in official documents and info plates on helicopters it is P model. Aircrafts received new electronics, HUD and all israeli F model upgrades.
      All serial numbers are proper for Turkish P model and historicaly correct.
       
      For take off: Around 75% of throttle vector - and then increase power to 70-85% (or more for quick lift) and pull controll stick little and snake will take off. Then reduce throttle vector as needed and reduce power to 69%. It should fly around 110kts now. 69% is about cruising speed.

    22. AH-1J SeaCobra Over the Seven Seas ver.2016

      BELL AH-1J SEA COBRA Over the Seven Seas Ver 2.0 for SF2
      April 2016
       
      This is a third party add on of the AH-1J Sea Cobra using models and cockpits created by me.

      Jarek Hereda
      ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
       
      WARNING!
       
      This is totaly new file. I highly recomend to backup your old files. OR just delete all old files. Even weapon folders. It is updated here.
      This is totaly new files and will not work in many parts with old.
       

      Also new cockpits included for both 69 and 80 versions.
       
      This addon works only with included WeaponPACK. All of weapon stations are made as specific station code and will work only with this weapon pack.
       
      Standard commands for activating Cobra features:
       
      AIRBRAKES - jump from pilot station to gunner station.
       
      ARRESTING HOOK - deploy arresting hook to land on aircraft carrier.
       
      LANDING GEAR - belly light deploy/retract at any speed. Don't forget to fold before shooting.
       
      A2A mode - gunner station guncross for turret.
       
      A2Ground mode - pilot M60 gunsight cross.
       
      ANIMATION 7 - turret doors
       
      ANIMATION 8 - ammo bay dooors
       
      ANIMATION 9 - gunner door (ext and cockpit view)
       
      ANIMATION 10 - pilot door (ext and cockpit view)
       

      For take off: Around 75% of throttle vector (small needle on RPM clock in cockpit should be like 65degree up) - (default ctrl + ) and then increase power to 70-85% (or more for quick lift) and pull controll stick little and snake will take off. Then reduce throttle vector as needed and reduce power to 69%. It should fly around 110kts now. 69% is about cruising speed.
       
      When on the ground you can see rotating blades for pitch and roll. Just additional and unnecesary thing (not visible so much when flying) but it is possible so it is there. Not working like i want but better then nothing.
       
      There are two different pylons on inboard stations one for rocketpods one for gunpods. Just to have a proper angle of fire with GP. It is not proper for real model but in my opinion best what can be done for SF engine. Rocket pods are ok with correct angle on inboard stations.
       
      To take off from ship.
      Increase throttle realase brake.
      Or.
      Incrase throttle around 75% of throttle vector controll and then realase brake.
      Landing on ship.
      Aproach. Reduce speed using throttle vector controll. Realase hook. Slowly aproach matching speed with vessel and reducing altitude to deck height. Hit deck. Needs practice but it is easy.
       
      Catapult on deck are set 10cm higher than regular deck level. So aircraft is 'hovering' 10cm above deck. It must be this way since these vesseles are not supportin aircraft carrier operations. It is just fooling game engine.
       
      All serial numbers are historicaly correct and based on available documents.
       

      I divided models into three sub packs. Weapons,guns,sounds are common to every part.
      Models 69 and 80 in diferent packs are still same model it is made this way for specific game mod.
       
      Vietnam pack 69 model.
      HML-367 'Scareface' Marble Mountain 1971
      HMA-369 'Marhukers' Operation MARHUK USS Cleveland, USS Denver
       
      Desert Storm pack 80 model
      HMA-773 'Sea Cobras' USS New Orleans 1991
      HMA-775 'Coyotes' Camp Smith, Saudi Arabia 1991
       

      Wings Over Europe/North Atlantic/Mediterranean Sea and anywhere.
      69 model:
      HMM-263© Det.HMA-269 USS Guadalcanal 1975
      HMM-162© Det.HMA-269 USS Guadalcanal 1976 (I am not sure if BuNos and modex are 100% correct here)
      HMH-362© Det.HMA-269 USS Guadalcanal 1976
      HMM-262© Det.HMA-169 USS Tarawa 1979 (I am not sure if BuNos and modex are 100% correct here)
       
      80 model"
      semi fictional skins (serial numbers are correct for J mode but not sure all of them apeard in HMA -169
      HMA-169 'World Famous Vipers' Two skins early green and mid-late 80s tri color version.
      This unit used AH-1J until 1986. This skin is based on photos but serial numbers are not 100% correct. Those are real SeaCObra numbers but fictional for this unit. However numbers started with 159 were present in this unit.
       

      Optional files:
      Two navy ships LHA and LPD class. Converted to USMC service. So in single mission, player flight will start from ship. (Water map needed)
      Both with landing deck.
      Experimental lights on deck of LPD class ship. Credits to Fubar for his carrier lights pack.
       
      Weapons included.
       
      One more thing. I am using mostly standard weapon effects.
      Make sure to edit it your way if you decide to use this weapons.
       
      During late 70 Marines tested scoop exhaust like US Army on G model. There are just a few photos with this mod.
      Here in game it will apear for a while in 1976-1978. It doesn't do anything. Since there is no IR suppresion in game. It is just for look and fun factor.
       
      In 80's model there is ALQ-144 IR Jammer. Since ther is no IR Jamming in game it is just very weak jammer. you can turn it on but don't count on jamming.
       
      Pilots:
      I am using usnpilots by OldDiego. Not included.
      SOme pilots models might be too big for this helo.
       

      Instalation:
       
      Copy all files into specific folders.
       
      Sounds:
      For M197gatling sound copy the lines from SOUNDLIST ADDON to your soundlist ini file.
       
      Squadrons:
      Add specific entrys form Squadronlist addon to your squadron list.
       

      Enjoy.
      Edit your way.

      This addon works only with included WeaponPACK. All of weapon stations are made as specific station code and will work only with this weapon pack.
       
      Standard commands for activating Cobra features:
       
      AIRBRAKES - sun filter/shader on off - just for fun no airbrakes so empty animation slot for use.
       
      ARRESTING HOOK - jump from pilot station to gunner station.
       
      LANDING GEAR - skid search light on/off at any speed. Dont forget to retract it because you wil be not able to shoot.
       
      A2A mode - gunner station TSU guncross for turret.
       
      A2Ground mode - pilot M73 cross.
       
      ANIMATION 8 - ammo bay dooors
       
      ANIMATION 9 - gunner door (ext and cockpit view)
       
      ANIMATION 10 - pilot door (ext and cockpit view)
       
      ANIMATION 1 - NVG (It is not nvg but some greent filter) If you don't like it disable it in cockpitini file.
       
      AH-1E was Step 2 upgrade program of Army Cobra. This variant was originally known as the „Up-Gun AH-1S or AH-1S(ECAS) – Enhanced Cobra Armament System. In this model Army Cobra featured the three -barell 20mm M197 automatic cannon mounted in XM97 universal turret. The AH-1E also featured an improved rocekt management system for 2.75 inch rockets, an improved sighting system, and a more powerful electrical generator to support all new systems. It has new 2nd version of flat plate canopy with bulged side glass panels. 98 new-built AH-1Es were delivered in 1978 and 1979. This was used only by US Army and NG. Plus six in basic configuration was ordered by Israel. Israel upgraded E to its own version of F model it will be part of different pack.
      Small changes in pit insturments compared to S(Prod)
      For take off: Around 75% of throttle vector - and then increase power to 70-85% (or more for quick lift) and pull controll stick little and snake will take off. Then reduce throttle vector as needed and reduce power to 69%. It should fly around 110kts now. 69% is about cruising speed.
      When on the ground you can see rotating blades for pitch and roll. Just additional and unnecesary thing (not visible so much when flying) but it is possible so it is there. Not working like i want but better then nothing.
       
      There are two different pylons on inboard stations one for rocketpods one for gunpods. Just to have a proper angle of fire with GP. It is not proper for real model but in my opinion best what can be done for SF engine. Rocket pods are ok with correct angle on inboard stations.
       
      NVG.
      Unfortunately there is no NVG in this game.
      I just added green "filter" to cockpit and you can activate it by default Animation 1 key.
      In external view ther will be little change in cockpit- unfortunately not moving with pilot/guner head.
      In copit view there is green glow and filter It is definitely not helping during night flight but this is beta version. Maybe one day real nvg will be possible here. If you dont like it disable it in cockpit.ini file. This feature apears only in National Guard 85 model and bonus,
       
      Skins:
      One generic carc green skin for three units. Not much individual paintings here.
      1st Sq(Air),17th Cav. 82nd CAB. 1978
      B/1-123rd Avn Brig,7th Inf.Div 1989.'Just Cause'
      4th Squadron "Longknife Squadron" 3rd ACR.
       
      All serial numbers are proper for S(ECAS) / E model but am not sure if these numbers appeared in specific units.
      some seiral are taken from available photos and are matched to units. Some are just placeholders but are correct for model block buid.
       
      Weapons.
      Most of the weapon are same as in previous packs and are common to G/Q/S/P model.
      Including XM158 and M200 launchers.
      TOWs BGM-71A/B/C/D.
      There is additional optional Suppressed Exhaust loaded via weaponstation.
      Also here there is new M197 automatic cannon loaded via weaponstation.
       
      One more thing. I am using mostly standard weapon effects.
      Make sure to edit it your way if you decide to use this weapons.
       
      Pilots:
      I am using helopilots by OldDiego.
      Some pilots models might be too big for this helo.
       
       
       
      Enjoy.
      Report Bugs.
      Edit your way.

      This mod represents USAF's rescue helicopter HH-53B HH-53C and USAF's cargo, support, special operations helicopter CH-53C.
       
      ******************IMPORTANT******************
       
      This addon works with my CargoPACK (included in rar file). All of weapon stations are made as specific station code and will work only with this cargo pack. Of course you can edit and use any other weapons availalbe.
       
      Standard animation commands HH-53 B/C:
       
      LANDING GEAR - Nose light deploy/retract at any speed.
       
      ANIMATION 1 - cargo ramp half open
      ANIMATION 2 - left hatch cabin windows
      ANIMATION 3 - wipers outside/inside
      ANIMATION 4 - refueling probe
      Hook - changes position when refueling to see tip of the spear.
       
      rescue op:
      Open "bombbay" doors - cargo ramp and right side hatch/door
      ANIMATION 8 - lower jungle penetrator
      ANIMATION 9 - deploy PJ
      ANIMATION 10 - lower/raise hoist.
      Animation 8, 9 and 10 have speed limit. So you can't hoist on sull speed.
       
      Standard animation commands CH-53 C:
       
      ANIMATION 10 - lower/raise hoist.
      ANIMATION 1 - cargo ramp half open / right siede door,
      ANIMATION 2 - left hatch cabin windows
      ANIMATION 3 - wipers outside/inside
       
      With little practice you can even hoover. Without fake flaps and airbrakes.
      Important here to control is using rudder and vector thrust control.
      With heavy cargo load probably you need little run on A model as engines on A are little underpowered.
      Normaly throtle vector control on 88-89 degree increase power 70% then slowly more and more, wait and it will take off.
       
      Cockpits.
      One cockpit based on CH-53 USAF and NATOPS manual
       
      Skins.
      All serial numbers are based on available photos and are historicaly correct.
       
      Weapons.
      The only "offensive" weapon is left/right side gunner equippe with GAU-2 minigun. Well it is quite defensive weapon.
      Important - if there is no gunner - fake weapon (no gun/empty) must be loaded. For now it must be this way.
      Fuel Tanks 450 US Gal.
      Flare Dispenser.
       
      There is seperate weaponstation called SandyStation - with allowed all ssort of offensive weapons. Purpose of this station is to fly with Sandy (or any other USAF aircraft) as wingman fully loaded. Same way can be added Sandy fuel tanks.
      IMPORTANT -
      Due tu construction of this mod it is better to use collision and landing on NORMAL setting. On hard you may have some complications on airfield - especialy with underslung cargo load.
       
      Countermeasures.
      In 80s there is available CMDS for HH-53C and CH-53C
       
      Super Jolly Green in Europe skins
      few versions of one unit for each helo.
      CH-53C 601st TASS Sembach, Germany.
      - early SEA and late EURO1/ hi viz painting.
      HH-53C 67th ARRS Woodbridge, UK.
      - early SEA and EURO1 camouflage scheme plus additional one grey before 67th moved to Woodbridge.
       
      Pilots - best to use is OldDiego's pilots.
       
      Have fun.
      Edit and report bugs.
