      CHANGES:
      I highly recommend to overwrite previous files decals/weapons/guns- or best is delete the old one and put new files.
      YOU NEED TO DELETE OLD AIRCRAFT FOLDERSfrom previous Yasur pack.  Many things were changed and as tested Overwriting may cause some problems...So delete old ones put new ones.
      The rest (except Aircraft folders) are same can be overwritten without fear.
      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.
      Added simple bump and specular maps. Also added damage tgas.
      Major changes in the cockpit - now it is much more correct. Although probably not everyone cares ore will see a difference. Anyway.
       
      ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
      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. (except yasur2025)
      S-65 was an export version based on HH-53C model.
       
      All serials are correct but not always represents specific units (although I've put a lot of effort to sort serials - and it's really hard as always in all Israeli serials from 60-80 period)
      I've split this pack into few sub-variants.
      Long story in short:
      Israel received the first batch S-65 C-3 in august 1970.(some sources give date 1969) already with two-digit numbers. Later re-serialed with added prefix 1 to numbers. This batch was called 'Series A'
      The second batch of Yasur helicopters was delivered in July 1971. 5 aircrafts with serials started with 2 (although for some time it carried prefix1) it's called 'Series B'.
      The third group consisted of 6 aircrafts were delivered between 1972-1973. Aircrafts received prefix 3 and were called 'Series C' also there were few differences in avionics and all 6 aircrafts were equipped with starlight nvg system.
      The fourth group was named 'Series D' and prefixed 4. Delivered after 1973 war. Eight helicopters from USMC surplus. The most prominent difference between S-65C-3 is an absence of refueling probe and auxiliary fuel tanks. Also different avionics and different armor plates in various points of the airframe. In the late 80s (probably) four of them were upgraded into late Yasur S-65 version called 'Series G' and serials prefixed 7,(aux fuel tanks and upgraded avionics).
      Other four remained unchanged to keep the 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 standard 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 an 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 airframes of old CH-53A without aux fuel tanks and refueling probe) Visible difference is an addition of support braces on fuel tanks pylons.
      In game aircrafts will appear 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******************
      FakePilot mod needed to run this mod. 
      As always.
      Standard commands:
      ANIMATION 1 - cargo ramp half open
      ANIMATION 2 - cabin windows
      ANIMATION 3 - wipers outside/inside
      ANIMATION 4 - refueling probe
      ANIMATION 5 - nvg on some models
      Hook - changes position when refueling to see the tip of the spear.
      rescue op:
      Open "bomb bay" doors - cargo ramp and right side hatch/door
      ANIMATION 8 - Open side doors, lower jungle penetrator
      ANIMATION 9 - deploy PJ
      ANIMATION 10 - lower/raise hoist.
      Animation 8, 9 and 10 have a 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.
      Normally throttle vector control on 88-89 degree increase power 70% then slowly more and more, wait and it will take off.
       
      Cockpits.
      new upgraded much more correct cockpits.
      Yasur 2000 pit is much more correct now.
      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.
      Have fun.
      Edit your way.
      And report bugs.

      FakePilot mod needed to run this mod. 
      As always.
      Standard animation commands HH-53 C:
      LANDING GEAR - Nose light deploy/retract at any speed.
      ANIMATION 1 - cargo ramp half open
      ANIMATION 2 - cabin windows
      ANIMATION 3 - wipers outside/inside

      Cockpits.
      One cockpit for HH-53C and CH-53C equipped with RWR and one cockpit for earlier non rwr HH-53B. Historically not all HH-53C airframes were equipped with RWR. BUt this mod covers RWR mod installed.
      Skins.
      All serial numbers are based on available photos and are historically correct and few versions of one unit for each helo.
      Few versions of one unit for each helo.
      CH-53C 21st SOS
      HH-53C 37th and 40th ARRS
      HH-53B 37th and 40th ARRS
      Weapons.
      The only "offensive" weapon is left/right side gunner equipped with GAU-2 minigun. Well, it is quite a defensive weapon.
      Unlike in pack 'Over Europe' here CH-53C can't be equipped with a refueling probe (small ini tweak will do the trick). 
      Fuel Tanks 450 US Gal. for CH-53C and HH-53C and 650 US Gal. for HH-53B
      There is a separate weapon station called SandyStation - with allowed all sort 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 to tu construction of this mod, it is better to use collision and landing on NORMAL setting. On hard, you may have some complications on the airfield - especially with underslung cargo load.
       
      Pilots - best to use is OldDiego's pilots.

      This mod represents Sikorsky model of RH-53D. 12 aircrafts were ordered by Imperial Iranian Navy. Only six delivered before revolution. Add then all six remained in newly formed Islamic Republic of Iran Navy Aviation. 
      CHANGES:
      I highly recommend to overwrite previous files decals/weapons/guns- or best is delete the old one and put new files.
      YOU NEED TO DELETE OLD AIRCRAFT FOLDERS CH-53A and CH-53D_70. Many things were changed and as tested Overwriting may caouse some problems...So delete old ones put new ones.
      The rest (except Aircraft folders) are same can be overwritten without fear...

      Small changes in skins. Also No longer fake weapon "no gun" is needed - thanks to The Trooper. He pointed small fix in data.ini.
      Added simple bump and specular maps. Also added damage tgas.
      Some changes and rearrangements in the cockpit

      ******************IMPORTANT******************
      FaAkePilot mod neede to run this mod. 
      As always.
      This addon works with my CargoPACK (included in rar file). All of the 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 available. 
      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 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.

      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.
      Newly upgraded cockpit based on NATOPS manual. Mirrors working now and showing correct image.
      Fuel usage is not super perfect but compared to all previous H-53 models released here fuel gauges are working.

      Skins.
      All serial numbers are based on available photos, are historically correct. 
      Weapons.
      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 available. 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.

      Cargo loads.
      I am releasing this cargo load in the current condition. So maybe some skins needs to be adjusted.
      Cargo loads includes few cargo crates for cargo bay and hook, howitzer, MUTTs. Skins for MUTTS - Thank yo The Trooper.

      IMPORTANT - 
      Due to construction of this mod it is better to use collision and landing on NORMAL setting. On hard, you may have some complications on the airfield - especially with underslung cargo load. 
      Skins.
      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.
      Good to add nations ini entry regarding new "nation" created - Islamic Republic of Iran Navy /Imperial Iranian Navy.
      otherwise, you will have to change nation name to Iran.

      Pilots - best to use is OldDiego's pilots.  

      Have fun.

      ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
      This mod represents Sikorsky model of RH-53D. It was used mainly by US NAVY Mine countermeasure units. At the end, of service time RH-53D were passed to USMC reserve units, where served as transport/heavy lift helicopters. Some were still used during Desert Shield/Storm operations in 1991. Finally, RH-53D was written off from units in 1996.
      12 aircrafts were also ordered by Imperial Iranian Navy. Only six delivered before the revolution. Add then all six remained in the newly formed Islamic Republic of Iran Navy Aviation. 
      CHANGES:
      I highly recommend to overwrite previous files decals/weapons/guns- or best is delete the old one and put new files.
      YOU NEED TO DELETE OLD AIRCRAFT FOLDERS RH-53D_70. Many things were changed and as tested Overwriting may cause some problems...So delete old ones put new ones.
      The rest (except Aircraft folders) are same can be overwritten without fear...
      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.
      Added simple bump and specular maps. Also added damage tgas.
      Some changes and rearrangement in a cockpit

      ******************IMPORTANT******************
      FakePilot mod neede to run this mod. 
      As always with my mods.
      This addon works with my CargoPACK (included in rar file). All of the 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 available. 
      Standard commands:
      LANDING GEAR - Nose light deploys/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 a tip of the IFR probe.
      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.

      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.
      Normally throttle vector control on 88-89 degree increase power 70% then slowly more and more, wait and it will take off. 
       
      Cockpits.
      Newly upgraded cockpit based on NATOPS manual. Mirrors working now and showing correct image.
      Fuel usage is not super perfect but compared to all previous H-53 models released here fuel gauges are working.

      Skins.
      All serial numbers are based on available photos, NAVY and USMC documents and are historically correct. 
      Weapons.
      The only "offensive" weapon is left/right side gunner. Well, I'm 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 available. 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 beginning of service, this aircraft has only provisions for refueling probe.

      Cargo loads.
      I am releasing this cargo load in current condition. So maybe some skins needs to be adjusted.
      Cargo loads includes few cargo crates for cargo bay and hook, howitzer, MUTTs. Skins for MUTTS - Thank yo The Trooper.

      IMPORTANT - 
      Due to the construction of this mod it is better to use collision and landing on NORMAL setting. On hard, you may have some complications on airfield - especially with underslung cargo load. 
      Skins.
      All serial numbers, as far as I know, are based on photos and US Army docs and are historically 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. 
      As bonus there is Eagle Claw folder -easy to find. Inside - skins for sand repainted RH-53D  - also replacement file for lod and deta.ini file -       this wil make EAPS dissapear. So backup original lod and data file before using Eagle Claw mod.  So yo were warned.

      Have fun.
      Edit and report bugs.
      Jarek Hereda.
      Thanks.

      This mod represents a Late model of CH-53D with installed EAPS and auxiliary fuel tanks. I've split this model into two versions. Early with RWR blisters and AN/ALE-39 flare/chaff dispenser and late with some more blisters, 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.

      CHANGES:
      I highly recommend to overwrite previous files decals/weapons/guns- or best is delete the old one and put new files.

      Two parking animations included one for 'on land base' and other for 'on board' parking.
      I'm 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 a data.ini file. 
      Those ships are limited only to those used during the Vietnam War on WestPac/SEA cruises.

      Cockpits.
      New upgraded cockpit based on NATOPS manual.
      Fuel usage is not super perfect but compared to all previous H-53 models released here fuel gauges are working.

      Few differences between models mostly in humps/bumps/sensors dispensers.

      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 finally retired.
      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. 
      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, I might never fully finish.

      Copy all files to specific folders in your game mod directory. 

      ANIMATION 1 & 2 - cockpit doors.
      open bomb bay - open cargo doors - you will figure out why/how etc. 
      This is beta file. Some small ini edits might be needed. 
      I was planning to make it bigger but I've lost 'thing' for it..but of course you can play with it.
      For now and in near future I will not work on it - so honestly, I am abandoning it.
      Better to share than keep it on a hard drive.
       Aircraft include my generic Bell Huey cockpit.
      Pack includes one helicopter with 1 very generic skin and PSD templates so anyone can create any skin desired.
      Flying.
      As with all my previous helos flying is quite easy. With little practice, you can even hoover. Without fake flaps and airbrakes.
      Important here to control is using rudder and vector thrust control.
      Normally throttle vector control on 88-89 degree increase power 55% wait little and then increase to 100% and helo will take off nicely.

      Have fun.
      Hope you will enjoy it same as me when working on it.

      This mod represents Late model of CH-53A already with instaled EAPS and early models oF CH-53D with uprated engines.
      A model 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 the 90s.

      I highly recommend to overwrite previous files decals/weapons/guns- or best is delete the old one and put new files.

      Cockpits.
      One cockpit based on NATOPS manual, an early model for both A and early D model.

      Both models are similar. The only difference is in engine power. D model is 'stronger' so it's easier 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 historically correct. 
      Weapons.
      The only "offensive" weapon is left/right side gunner. Well, it is a quite defensive weapon.
      Ah.. there is Napalm barrel bombs. Used in Vietnam War. Inside _WingsOverVietnam_Only Addon Folder
      ...BOOM.
      Cargo loads.
      I am releasing this cargo load in current condition. So maybe some skins needs to be adjusted.
      Cargo loads include few cargo crates for cargo bay and hook, howitzer, MUTTs. Skins for MUTTS - Thank yo The Trooper.

      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 minesweeper. It is just interim mk105. V.2 is under development.
      To see Mk105 open cargo bay.
      IMPORTANT - 
      Due to construction of this mod it is better to use collision and landing on NORMAL setting. On hard, you may have some complications on airfield - especially with underslung cargo load. 
      Countermeasures.
      I've deleted Countermeasures from weapon loadout. 

      Skins.
      All serial numbers, as far as I know, are based on photos and US Army docs and are historically 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 believe 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 fro 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 a trip to Japan and one 1973 during Operation End Sweep.

      Pilots - best to use is OldDiego's pilots. 
      This mod still needs some work. Will be working on it. 
      Have fun.

      Flying.
      As with all my previous helos flying is quite easy. With little practice, you can even hoover. Without fake flaps and airbrakes.
      Important here to control is using rudder and vector thrust control.
      Normally throttle vector control on 88-89 degree increase power 55% wait little and then increase to 100% and helo will take off nicely.
       
      Pack includes one helicopter with 1 skin

    11. 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!

    12. AH-64 Package for SF2 Ver 1.1

      This is my AH-64A Apache and AH-64D Longbow Apache for SF2. (should work in Gen 1 but is untested)
       
      DDS skin version and Photoshop templates are also included.

      VERSION 1.1 CHANGES/ADDITIONS
      -----------------------------
      -New cockpit glass reflection texture.
       
      -Changed AGM-114L to CGR and added Hellfire rails to the 3d
      model to overcome the issue of engaging moving targets.
      (Thanks to WhiteBoySamurai for this idea and thanks to
      FastCargo for letting me use the 3d model of his Hellfire rail)
       
      -Changed loadout types so the AH-64A cannot be loaded with the
      AGM-114L Longbow Hellfire.
       
      -Changed the Specular and Glossiness levels to make the skin
      look more matt.
       
      -New hangar and loading screens.
       
      -Some FM and performance tweaks. (Thanks to EricJ for some
      suggestions)

      rocket pod, Hydra rocket with a M229 warhead and Hydra APKWS with
      a M151 warhead.
      For mode info and details on the APKWS look here:

      ANIMATION 10 - rear door.
       
      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.

    14. 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.

      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

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

      Florian - BIG thanks for model.

      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.

      ANIMATION 8 - unfold hoist
       
      ANIMATION 10 - lower/raise hoist.
       

      This is beta file.
      Better to share than store on hard drive.
      If someone wants to improve something let me know.
      Templates for pit or skins are available on pm request.
       

      Aircrafts include cockpit files.
      This is beta cockpit version. Not fully finished. So perhaps there wilbe update one day.
       
      Flying.
      As with all my previous helos flying is quite easy. With little practice you can even hoover. Without fake flaps and airbrakes.
      Important here to control is using rudder and vector thrust control.
      Normaly throtle vector control on 88-89 degree increase power 55% wait little and then increase to 100% and helo will take off nicely.
       

      Pack includes
      set of skins to represent early Luftwaffe and Army models.
      serials and codes covers all V43 used in Germany by all units.
      All serial numbers and codes are historicaly correct.
      .. As far as I know.
       
      This mod is not covering late V43B and sole V44 models.
       
      Same cargo 'weapons' as in previous pack included plus one new German style.
       
      Have fun.
      Hope you will enjoy it same as me when working on it.
      Edit and report bugs.

      ANIMATION 10 - lower/raise hoist.
       

      This is beta file.

      Aircrafts include cockpit files for C and B versions.
       
      This is beta cockpit version. Not fully finished. So perhaps there wilbe update one day.
       

      Flying.
      As with all my previous helos flying is quite easy. With little practice you can even hoover. Without fake flaps and airbrakes.
      Important here to control is using rudder and vector thrust control.
      Normaly throtle vector control on 88-89 degree increase power 55% wait little and then increase to 100% and helo will take off nicely.

    19. 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.
       
      ---------------------------------------------
      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 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.

    20. 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.

    21. 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.

      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.
      Report bugs.

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

      FUJI AH-1S COBRA Ver 1.0 for SF2
       
      July 2016.
       
      This is a third party add on of the AH-1S Cobra of JGSDF 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:
       
      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.

      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.

      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.

      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.
