  1. Hellenic Air Force F-5A Volume I

    July 2020
    ===============
    Hellenic Air Force F-5A Freedom Fighter Volume I VERSION 1.0
    ------------------------------------------------------------
    F-5A variants included in the Package:
    HAF F-5A standard version (1965 - 1974)
    HAF F-5A with Martin Baker IRQ-7a ejection seat  (1975 - 1999)
    HAF Rf-5A reconnaissance variant with 4 K-92a cameras
    We are proud to present the F-5A HAF Volume I, the first of many to come, focusing on one of the most enduring American military aircraft designs ever produced during the Cold War period. This first Volume depicts the following Hellenic Air Force variants; the HAF F-5A standard, the HAF F-5A with the Martin Baker IRQ-7a ejection seat, and the HAF RF-5A reconnaissance variant. It has been our goal to provide to the simmer a highly detailed model and texture base which preserve the beautiful lines of this aircraft; and to engineer flight files and a cockpit/gauge file-set that are authentic and add to the immersion of the flying experience within the Strike Fighters 2 series.

     
    INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS:
    --------------------------
    1. Copy the contents of the "To Mods Folder(S)" to your SF2 Mod directory.
    Allow directory merging and overwrites, provided the overwrites pertain to "fake pilot" entries, as well as weapons made by ravenclaw_007, which are included in this and many other releases.
    2. Add the entries of "ADD_TO_SOUNDLIST.txt" to your SOUNDLIST.INI (located in the "user\Saved Games\ThirdWire\StrikeFighters2\Flight" folder).If one does not exist, then you will need to extract it using the 3rdWire CAT extract utility.  You are simply required to substitute the "XXX"s  with the next sequential number in the sound file section of the file.
     
      NOTE    1:
    ------------
    Both Regular and Higher resolution cockpit textures are included in their own distinct folders in the package.
    The user may alternate between the two by "commenting out"
    the relevant line in the F-5A_STANDARD_COCKPIT.ini

    [CockpitData]
    //Directory=cockpit      
    Directory=cockpit_Lo-Fi    <---This is the default

    In order to "activate" the higher resolution textures
    you would decomment the previous line and comment out
    the next line, thus:

    [CockpitData]
    Directory=cockpit          <---This is now Hi-Res
    //Directory=cockpit_Lo-Fi    

      NOTE    2:
    ------------
    Another frame-rate friendly option for those with older hardware is to use the Next level of Detail Model as the primary external model. This simply involves changing the first line in the F-5A_HAF.ini  from this..
    [LOD001]
    Filename=F-5A_STANDARD.LOD
    to this..
    [LOD001]
    Filename=F-5A_STANDARD_002.LOD
    Much effort was made to provide those with lower end systems an alternative lower poly-model to be able to enjoy the F-5a,  so please take advantage of this _002.LOD model should you experience frame-rate issues.  While not as "rounded" as the Higher poly version, it is nonetheless just as detailed and extensive.
     NOTE    3:
    ------------
    For those who may find loading times excessive, the .jpg files in the texture folders can be reduced to 50% of their size without sacrificing too much surface detail.

    ****************************************************************
    FEATURES:
    * Three model set including the HAF F-5A standard version (1965 - 1974), the  HAF F-5A with Martin Baker IRQ-7a ejection seat  (1975 - 1999), and the  HAF RF-5A reconnaissance variant with 4 K-92a cameras; each with their own custom loadouts.
    * Three, highly detailed external 3d models, including the RF-5A, whose nose was graciously modeled by ravenclaw_007.
    * Specular color and Normal (bump) maps on all models
    * Seven Level of Detail models (LODs) for each model, providing an almost seamless transition from distance to distance; and perhaps more importantly, ensuring that the frame-rate "impact" of the aircraft is as low as possible.
    * Two sets of highly detailed external Fuel Tanks by ravenclaw_007; both the Factory variety and the Sargent Fletcher variants.
    * Fine-tuned flight parameters in three distinct aircraft data configuration files  for all 3-D models, emphasizing the F-5A's agile and highly maneuverable characteristics - courtesy of  Baffmeister.
    * 8 high resolution texture sets; thoroughly researched historic depictions of the Aircraft fielded by many HAF Wings and Squadrons.
    * Quality sound-set included. Base sounds, by Guuruu, were sourced from existing recordings of various aircraft at air-shows and were modified  to match the prominent characteristics of the F-5A General Electric turbojets, the "buzz" of the M39 Pontiac 20mm machinegun, and the flap/Air-brake, undercarriage deployment and retraction sequences of the Freedom Fighter.
    * Super detailed  'Virtual Cockpit'  with animated throttle control, rudder pedals, control stick,  landing gear lever, canopy, canopy lever, drag-chute lever, weapons selectors and weapon station arming flick switches.
    *Accurate and functional representation of the Norair F-5A gun sight, with animated Mils selector and accompanying animated combining glass. (Mechanics by Crusader)
    * A full complement of highly (or should I say "insanely" detailed  HAF weapons carried by the HAF F-5A, all by ravenclaw_007.
    * Complex animation of canopy opening mechanism, and animated Turbine blades; both thanks to ravenclaw_007
    * GKAB's superb highly detailed crew figure with authentically modeled oxygen mask and flight helmet.
    * All new afterburner, emitter, and engine smoke effects by Guuruu.

  2. F-5GN

    F-5GN Sea Tiger (What if)
    *****************************************************
    This mod is made for SF2.
    ----------------------------------------------------------
    I. History (fiction)
    In 1969 there were decisive elections in West Germany. In reality, the Social Democrats won.
    A new foreign policy followed and a period of reduction of tensions between East and West.
    WHAT IF, the other side had won?
    What if the conservatives had won and Franz Joseph Strauß (an old bavarian Commie eater) would have become Chancellor of the Federal Republic of Germany?
    And so it starts.
    In 1969 Strauß was elected as Chancellor. A period of rising tensions between East and West
     started. To protect the sea lanes between Europe and America the west german parliament Bundestag decided to build up a west german carrier force consisting of 3 carriers.
    The american gouvernment was pleased and offered to sell 3 carriers of the Essex class (subclass Ticonderoga).
    The first ship which was handed over was CV-34 Oriskany in 1969. Renamed in R-22 Theodor Heuss it was core of the first west german carrier group. 1973 CV-38 Shangri-La became R-23 Heinrich Lübke (later renamed in Walter Scheel) and two years later CV-45 Valley Forge became R-24 Gustav Heinemann.
    The americans offered A-4 Skyhawk and F-8 Crusader as planes for the carrier group. The Bundesmarine accepted the A-4, but rejected the Crusader, because the Bundesmarine wanted a more multi role capable plane, not only a pure fighter.
    At this moment Northrop entered the competition and offered a navalised version of the brand new F-5E Tiger. Under the designation F-5GN (German Navy) it should be produced in America and Germany. The west german government accepted the offer and the serial production of the F-5GN started. During flight tests on the way the US Marines decided, that it would be a good idea to replace their old F-8 Crusaders with F-5GN planes. So the F-5GN became a Marine plane.
    Later, when the Marines retired their attack carriers the surviving F-5GN were transfered to Top Gun school.
    The F-5GN stayed in west german service till 1995. Then it was replaced by F-31 Mustang II.

  7. F-5F and F-5FM Brazilian Air Force

    The Northrop F-5A/B Freedom Fighter and the F-5E/F Tiger II are part of a family of supersonic Light fighter, initially designed in the late 1950s by Northrop Corporation. Being smaller and simpler than contemporaries such as the McDonnell Douglas F-4 Phantom II, the F-5 cost less to both procure and operate, making it a popular export aircraft. The F-5 started life as a privately funded light fighter program by Northrop in the 1950s. The design team wrapped a small, highly aerodynamic fighter around two compact and high-thrust General Electric J85 engines, focusing on performance and low cost of maintenance. Though primarily designed for the day air superiority role, the aircraft is also a capable ground-attack platform. The F-5A entered service in the early 1960s. During the Cold War, over 800 were produced through 1972 for U.S. allies. Though the USAF had no acknowledged need for a light fighter, it did procure roughly 1,200 Northrop T-38 Talon trainer aircraft, which were directly based on the F-5A.
     
    After winning the International Fighter Aircraft competition in 1970, a program aimed at providing effective low-cost fighters to American allies, Northrop introduced the second-generation F-5E Tiger II in 1972. This upgrade included more powerful engines, higher fuel capacity, greater wing area and improved leading edge extensions for a better turn rate, optional air-to-air refueling, and improved avionics including air-to-air radar. Primarily used by American allies, it was also used in US training exercises. A total of 1,400 Tiger IIs were built before production ended in 1987. More than 3,800 F-5 and T-38 aircraft were produced in Hawthorne, California.
     
    The F-5 was also developed into a dedicated reconnaissance version, the RF-5 Tigereye. The F-5 also served as a starting point for a series of design studies which resulted in the Northrop YF-17 and the F/A-18 navalized fighter aircraft. The Northrop F-20 Tigershark was an advanced variant to succeed the F-5E which was ultimately canceled when export customers did not emerge. The F-5N/F variants are in service with the United States Navy and United States Marine Corps as an adversary trainer. Approximately 500 aircraft are still in service as of 2014.
     
    In October 1974, the Brazilian Air Force (FAB) ordered 36 F-5E and 6 F-5B aircraft from Northrop for $72 million. The first three aircraft arrived on 12 March 1975. In 1988, FAB acquired 22 F-5E and four F-5EF second-hand USAF "agressor" fighters. A total of 15 of these aircraft were part of the initial batch of 30 aircraft produced by Northrop. In 1990, FAB retired all remaining five F-5Bs; later, they were sent to Brazilian museums around the country.
     
    In 2001, Elbit Systems and Embraer started work on a $230 million Brazilian F-5 modernization program, performed over an eight-year period, upgrading 46 F-5E/F aircraft, re-designated as F-5EM and F-5FM. The modernization centered on several areas: new electronic warfare systems, the Grifo F radar, an air-to-air refueling system, INS/GPS-based navigation, support for new weapons, targeting and self-defense systems, HOTAS, LCD displays, helmet-mounted displays (HMDs), Radar Warning Receiver, encrypted communications, cockpit compatibility for night vision goggles, On-Board Oxygen Generation System (OBOGS) and various new onboard computer upgrades. One important capability is the secure communication with R-99 airborne early warning platforms and ground stations.
     
    Externally, the new aircraft features a larger nose cone that accommodates the larger radar equipment. The first F-5EM was handed over on 21 September 2005. On 7 July 2003, four Rafael Litening III targeting pods were ordered at a cost of USD 13 million, to be used on F-5M together with three Rafael Sky Shield jamming pods ordered in 5 July 2006 at a cost of USD 42 million.
     
    In 2009, FAB bought eight single-seat and three twin-seat F-5F used aircraft from Jordan in a US$21 million deal. These aircraft were built between 1975 and 1980. On 14 April 2011, a contract of $153 million was signed with Embraer and Elbit to modernize the additional F-5s bought from Jordan, and to supply one more flight simulator as a continuation of the contract signed in 2000. These F-5s will receive the same configuration as those from the initial 46 F-5s currently completing the upgrade process. The first delivery of this second batch of upgraded jet fighters is scheduled for 2013 with expected use to 2030.

  8. F-5E Tigre Brazilian Air Force

    F-5E Tigre Brazilian Air Force (v.2.0)
     
    required F-5E Early Versions Pack 1.0 (cockipt and decals) to keep the original files and credits.
    http://combatace.com/files/file/15116-f-5e-early-versions-pack/
     
    I had problem with afterburner, so this using the stock files.
     
     
     
    F-5 Tigre Brazilian Air Force
     
    The Tiger in Brazil
     
    In Brazil, the history of the F-5 started in practice in March 1975, however, he was quoted to equip the FAB since 1965, in its version F-5A / B. In 1967, he was again contemplated, this time as a design vector SISDACTA. The preference was for the F-4 Phantom, but this was vetoed by the Americans, who in turn offered the F-5C (version proposed by Northrop with improvements based on the evaluation report made in Vietnam).
    The impasse U.S. favored the French, having acquired the FAB 16 Dassault Mirage III. A new international contest held in 1971 to replace the AT-33A, attended the Fiat G-91, MB-326K, Harrier Mk-50, Jaguar GR1 and A-4F, won by Northrop fighter now in his version F-5E. Began a long and successful history of the Tiger II in FAB, which still continues today and is expected to last until 2018. The FAB received six F-5B (FAB 4800-4805), 4 F-5F (FAB 4806-4809) and 58 F-5E (FAB 4820-4877) that were acquired in two separate batches. The first batch in 1973, factory direct (06 F + 36 F-5B-5D), the value of $ 115 million and the second batch in 1988, former USAF (04 F-22 F-5F and 5E), the total cost of $ 13.1 million. The first aircraft of "Operation Tiger", became known as the transfer of the first batch were delivered from February 28, 1975 in Palmdale. Were three F-5B, which arrived in Brazil on 06 March of the same year, followed by another three F-5B on 13 May. On June 12, 1975, came the first 4 F-5E to BAGL, starting an airlift that ended on February 12 of the following year, totaling 36 aircraft.
    In 1985, after much searching, we reached an agreement with the Reagan administration, which agreed to negotiate 4 F-5F and 22 F-5E, which would come from the ranks of the USAF, at a cost of $ 13.1 million, a trifle. Around September 2006, it was speculated acquisition of 9 aircraft F-5E Tiger II, used in Saudi Arabia, 6 F-5E and F-5F 3. This purchase, however, went no further, come to the Brazilian Air Force to acquire a lot of aircraft of the Royal Jordanian Air Force. In total 11 aircraft were purchased, and 8 single-seat F-5E and F-5F 3 seaters. The first aircraft coming from Jordan arrived in Brazil on August 19, 2008 and were sent to the Air Force Material Park of São Paulo (PAMA-SP). All the F-5 ex-Jordan should be converted to the standard F-and F-5FM 5EM.

  9. F-5E Early Versions Pack


    F-5E For Strike Fighters 2



    "Early versions pack"


     
    Version History:
    v.1.0: First public release. Early versions without later refinements like RWR.
     
    DESCRIPTION:
     
    This addon can thank its release to the work of two talented individuals, FastCargo and BPao. FastCargo created the F-5F two seaters and BPao was the man behind the original Mirage Factory F-5E model. I was fortunate enough to get permission to work on these source models, with the goals of marrying the F-5E front section to the F-5F engine and wings which were quite a lot more detailed. It was supposed to be a quick project.
     
    One year later:
    I have completely reworked the F-5E nose, added a lot of stuff on the original fuselage and detailed both original templates to have higher detail textures. Meanwhile Sophocles graciously allowed me to use his superb F-5A cockpit as a basis to build my F-5E cockpit, in which I have also used parts based on FastCargos unfinished T-38 cockpit.
     
    Included is two versions of the earlier production F-5E: a basic version dubbed '72 and an export specific version with a larger vertical stabilizator and spine antenna. This version is dubbed '74L (L for large vertical stablizator).
     
    Happy flying!
     
    Mats "Centurion" Liljeroos
     
    FEATURES:
    SF2 standard external model
    2048^2 textures with normal maps
    Realistic cockpit with avionics courtesy of Crusader
    FM from original MirageFactory F-5E which flies really good.

    INSTALATTION:
    Extract into mod folder of choice.
     
    This by and large replaces the old F-5E by TMF, so you can go ahead and delete the F-5E aircraft folder if you have it installed.
     
    NOTE:
    The _74L version references the _72 versions cockpit folder, so if you aim to use the 74L standalone in some installation, copy the cockpit folder and F-5E_72_cockpit.ini file from the _72 folder to the _74L folder. Overwrite.
     
     
    Stay tuned for more Tigers!

  11. F-5E and F-5EM Tigre Brazilian Air Force (Pack)

    F-5 Tigre Brazilian Air Force (Pack)
     
    The Tiger in Brazil
     
    In Brazil, the history of the F-5 started in practice in March 1975, however, he was quoted to equip the FAB since 1965, in its version F-5A / B. In 1967, he was again contemplated, this time as a design vector SISDACTA. The preference was for the F-4 Phantom, but this was vetoed by the Americans, who in turn offered the F-5C (version proposed by Northrop with improvements based on the evaluation report made in Vietnam).
    The impasse U.S. favored the French, having acquired the FAB 16 Dassault Mirage III. A new international contest held in 1971 to replace the AT-33A, attended the Fiat G-91, MB-326K, Harrier Mk-50, Jaguar GR1 and A-4F, won by Northrop fighter now in his version F-5E. Began a long and successful history of the Tiger II in FAB, which still continues today and is expected to last until 2018. The FAB received six F-5B (FAB 4800-4805), 4 F-5F (FAB 4806-4809) and 58 F-5E (FAB 4820-4877) that were acquired in two separate batches. The first batch in 1973, factory direct (06 F + 36 F-5B-5D), the value of $ 115 million and the second batch in 1988, former USAF (04 F-22 F-5F and 5E), the total cost of $ 13.1 million. The first aircraft of "Operation Tiger", became known as the transfer of the first batch were delivered from February 28, 1975 in Palmdale. Were three F-5B, which arrived in Brazil on 06 March of the same year, followed by another three F-5B on 13 May. On June 12, 1975, came the first 4 F-5E to BAGL, starting an airlift that ended on February 12 of the following year, totaling 36 aircraft.
    In 1985, after much searching, we reached an agreement with the Reagan administration, which agreed to negotiate 4 F-5F and 22 F-5E, which would come from the ranks of the USAF, at a cost of $ 13.1 million, a trifle. Around September 2006, it was speculated acquisition of 9 aircraft F-5E Tiger II, used in Saudi Arabia, 6 F-5E and F-5F 3. This purchase, however, went no further, come to the Brazilian Air Force to acquire a lot of aircraft of the Royal Jordanian Air Force. In total 11 aircraft were purchased, and 8 single-seat F-5E and F-5F 3 seaters. The first aircraft coming from Jordan arrived in Brazil on August 19, 2008 and were sent to the Air Force Material Park of São Paulo (PAMA-SP). All the F-5 ex-Jordan should be converted to the standard F-and F-5FM 5EM.

    O Tigre no Brasil
     
    No Brasil, a história do F-5 iniciou na prática em março de 1975, porém, ele esteve cotado para equipar a FAB desde 1965, em sua versão F-5A/B. Em 1967, ele foi novamente cogitado, desta vez como vetor do projeto SISDACTA. A preferência era para o F-4 Phantom, mas este foi vetado pelos americanos, que em contrapartida ofereceram o F-5C (versão proposta pela Northrop com melhorias baseadas no relatório de avaliação feito no Vietnã).
    O impasse norte-americano favoreceu os franceses, tendo a FAB adquirido 16 Dassault Mirage III. Numa nova disputa internacional, realizada a partir de 1971 para substituir os AT-33A, na qual participaram o Fiat G-91, MB-326K, Harrier Mk-50, Jaguar GR1 e A-4F, saiu vencedor o caça da Northrop, agora em sua versão F-5E. Começava a longa história de sucesso do Tiger II na FAB, que continua até hoje e ainda deve durar até 2018. A FAB recebeu 6 F-5B (FAB 4800 a 4805), 4 F-5F (FAB 4806 a 4809) e 58 F-5E (FAB 4820 a 4877) que foram adquiridos em dois lotes distintos. O primeiro lote em 1973, direto da fábrica (06 F-5B + 36 F-5E), ao valor de US$ 115 milhões e o segundo lote, em 1988, ex-USAF (04 F-5F e 22 F-5E), ao custo total de US$ 13,1 milhões. As primeiras aeronaves da "Operação Tigre", como ficou conhecido o translado do primeiro lote, foram entregues a partir de 28 de fevereiro de 1975 em Palmdale. Eram 3 F-5B, que chegaram ao Brasil no dia 06 de março do mesmo ano, sendo seguidos de outros 3 F-5B em 13 de maio. Em 12 de junho de 1975, chegavam os primeiros 4 F-5E à BAGL, dando início a uma ponte aérea que só terminaria em 12 de fevereiro do ano seguinte, totalizando 36 aeronaves.
    Em 1985, depois de muito procurar, chegou-se a um acordo com o governo Reagan, que aceitou negociar 4 F-5F e 22 F-5E, que sairiam das fileiras da USAF, a um custo de US$ 13,1 milhões, uma bagatela. Por volta de Setembro de 2006, especulava-se a aquisição de 9 aeronaves F-5E Tiger II, usadas da Arábia Saudita, sendo 6 F-5E e 3 F-5F. Esta compra, entretanto, não foi adiante, vindo a Força Aérea Brasileira a adquirir um lote de aeronaves pertencentes à Real Força Aérea da Jordânia. No total foram compradas 11 aeronaves, sendo 8 F-5E monoplaces e 3 F-5F biplaces. As primeiras aeronaves vindas da Jordânia chegaram no Brasil em 19 agosto de 2008 e foram enviadas ao Parque de Material da Aeronáutica de São Paulo (PAMA-SP). Todas os F-5 ex-Jordânia deverão ser convertidos para o padrão F-5EM e F-5FM.

    Readme for the Northrop 2 seater aircraft.
     
    ********************************* Version 2.0 Release ********************************
     
    This release combines all previous Northrop 2 seaters into one package and updates them to Jun 2010 standards. Only aircraft not included is T-38C due to lack of a suitable cockpit. Several enhancements to all aircraft have been added, including available bump mapping, new F-5A cockpit enhancements, various other tweaks and fixes.
     
     
    Thanks to the following folks:
     
    331KillerBee - For the skins, additional information and hanger/loadout/loading screens, SF2 weapons pack.
    ChampionsVA56 - For his early T-38A paint scheme.
    Deigo - For his very nice MODusaf pilot skin!
    EricJ - Textures, loading screens, readme construction.
    JAT81500 - For most of the avionics work on which the Saeqeh avionics are based.
    JSF_Aggie - Range addition for the NATIONS.INI.
    Jug - Flight evaluation and assistance.
    Lexx_Luthor - For the Airshow Smoke effect for the Thunderbird T-38A (borrowed from his missile exhaust effects).
    PappyChkSix - For the original skins, which unfortunately were lost when the models were remapped.
    Soulfreak - Reference materials.
    Sundowner - Tips, advice and help.
    The Mirage Factory - For allowing me to use the cockpit, effects, damage textures and sounds from the F-5A and F-5E FM based off of Mirage Factory F-5A and F-5E.
    TK - For the ThirdWire series of sims.
    USAFMTL - For beta testing and advice.
    Vampyre - Technical assistance.
    Wrench - Reference materials.
     
    To my fellow Combatace moderators - For helping me beta test and work out bugs.
    Any errors or mistakes are entirely mine.
     
     
    What you will need first:
     
    Strike Fighters 2/Vietnam/Europe/Israel patched to Jun 2010 standards. This is not for Generation 1 ThirdWire sims.
     
    Optional:
    JSF_Aggie's SF2 Series Range Terrain for the AT-38B single missions. http://combatace.com/files/file/11067-sf2-series-range/
     
     
    What is in this archive:
     
    1. This readme (duh!) and the Readme folder.
     
    2. Effects, Objects, Sounds, Flight folder.
     
    3. Alternate Hanger/Loading screens in the F-5B Vietnam Hanger Screens folder.
     
    4. AT-38B missions in the Missions folder.
     
     
    Instructions:
     
    1. Read and understand this entire readme FIRST!
     
    2. Copy the Effects, Objects, Missions, and Sounds folders to your SF2/V/E/I mod directory. Allow directory merging and overwrites (anything overwritten either belongs to me, is part of the SF2 Weapons Pack or is the exact same as the Mirage Factory F-5 effects and sounds).
     
    3. Optional step: Copy the 2 files located in the F-5B Vietnam Hanger Screens directory to your mods/Objects/Aircraft/F-5B directory and overwrite.
     
    4. Optional step: Copy the Flight folder to your SF2/V/E/I mod directory. Contains a NATIONS.INI file that changes Iran from Friendly to Enemy and adds the Range nation. If you have a modded NATIONS.INI already, you may want to insert the proper entry by hand. You will NOT need the Range NATIONS.INI.
     
    5. Optional step: Download and install the SF2 Series Range.
     
    6. That's it! You should see the aircraft in your selection screen.
     
     
    Aircraft Information:
     
    Consult the various readmes included here for specific variant information.
     
     
    Notes and Limitations:
     
    This uses the 'Open Cockpit' method to place the cockpit model 'inside' the external model. This also allows the ability to add flight controls to the cockpit, which originally didn't have them modeled for the F-5F. Downsides are the that during inclement weather, it will appear 'foggy' inside the cockpit.
     
    Capable of being flown from either seat through editing of the main aircraft ini file. Simply uncomment the lines that have the seat you want to fly in, and comment out the lines with the seats you don't want to fly in. The default is the front seat.
     
    The gunsight is new and part of the aircraft. You will not have a gunsight if you fly without a cockpit. Also, the gunsight has an ability not normally available to ThirdWire aircraft...use your thrust vectoring control to activate it (make sure your thrust vectoring control is in the neutral position before you start the mission).
     
    The FM is reasonably 'close' to the real thing...but defaults to being 'fun' vs being 'perfect numbers'. It gives a reasonable impression on how the aircraft actually flies...but don't expect to hit all the 'numbers' perfectly.
     
    This is FREEWARE only, NO money is allowed to be made on the contents of these files, in whole or in part. Released IAW the freeware accords at CombatAce.
     
    Feel free to redistribute, as long as the original authors are given appropriate credit.
