    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.

    Thanks to everyone who helped me with this.
    And thanks for all support.

    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
    ANIMATION 4 - refueling probe

    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.
     
    Have fun.
    Edit and report bugs.

    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 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 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.
    Edit and report bugs.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    CHANGES:
    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.

    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.

  8. 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!

  9. HS.13 Cayuse. Arma Aerea de la Armada Española. SF2

    HS.13 Cayuse / Hughes 369HM Spanish Navy. Ver 1.0 for SF2
     
    This is a third party addon of Hughes 369HM 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.

    ANIMATION 9 - front right door
     
    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.

  10. 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.

  11. Lahatut Over Israel SF2

    'Lahatut' Hughes 500E/500MD TOW Defender Ver 2.0 for SF2
     
    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.

  15. 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.

  16. 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.

    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

    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.
    Here on Defender will apear when switching to AG mode. In TOW Defender gunsight by animation key 1.
     
    By pressing Arresting Hook activation key you can switch do TOW gunner.
     
    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 ac using rudder and vector thrust control.

  18. AH-6F / MH-6E Six Guns & Little Birds

    Hughes AH-6F and MH-6E Ver 1.0 for SF2
     

    This is a third party add on of the first LittleBird AH-6C 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. It will not work in SF1 series.

    This addon works only with my WeaponPACK (included). All of weapon stations are made as specific station code and will work only with this weapon pack. Of course you can edit and use any other weapons availalbe.
     
    Standard commands:
     
    LANDING GEAR - Nose light deploy/retract at any speed. Don't forget to retract before shooting on hard weapons settings)
     
    ANIMATION 10 - Show/hide doors. If ever you will fly in cold enviroment and feel uncomfortable, you can fly with front doors instaled, It doesn't do anything. And will not help you. It's just for different look in winter.
     
    ANIMATION 1 - 'NVG'
     
    You can realy 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. Without fake flaps and airbrakes.
    Important here to control is using rudder and vector thrust control.
    Fun is skiding between buildings in cities.
     
    Fuel. Remeber it is small chopper. And it can carry only around 54 US Gals of fuel. I belive it is enough for around 2 hours of flight here maybe little more.
     
    Cockpits.
    Since photos of interior of this two early 160th SOAR birds are extremly rare and usualy low quality for now cockpits are just "guess" cockpits. Based on these low quality photos, some MD500D, Hughes 369D manuals, guessing.
     
    AH-6F.
    Based on MD500D series. 9 airframes aquired by 160thSOAR probably in 1984 since all airframes are build in 84. AH-6F still used old M27 subsytem with M134 minigun. And same mount as earlier AH-6C for 7 tube launcher.
     
    Skins.
    All serial numbers as far as I know are based on photos and US Army docs and are historicaly correct.
     
    Weapons.
    XM27 – M134 Minigun
    M260 7 tube rocket launcher. First years of operation with mk40 rockets and later Mk66 rockets.
     
    There is no gunsight for this helo. Acording to one of the pilots they were using "grease pencil mark on the windscreen, . And practicing shooting this way ". So here it is embeded to windshield. During night with 'nvg' it will glow a little.
     

    MH-6E.
    Special Forces insertion/extraction variant of MD369MD. Introduced in 1981. No weapons.
     
    Skins.
    All serial numbers as far as I know are based on photos and US Army docs and are historicaly correct.
     
    Weapons:
     
    Here you can load experimental beta version of specops.
    Operator with M4 or M4/M203.
    You have to land select "weapon" and deploy them on the ground and get away.
    Remember this is beta. Lod model is "ehmm" and animations is just for try. I did not even finish skin. So do not expect fireworks.
     
    There is also two weaponstations to carry M27 subsystem and M260 launcher. It is not to be used on MH-6E !!!
    I added it here so player can pick AH-6C/F as wingman and have cover by wingman. Just fun in single mission.
     

    MH-6E participated in Urgent Fury with AH-6C. It was not used in inital attack but used later for extraction wounded 82nd Airborne members to USS Guam.
     

    Pilot by OldDiego poorly repainted by me.
     
    Have fun.
    Edit and report bugs.

  20. OH-6A Loaches in NAM

    Hughes OH-6A CAYUSE Ver 1.0 for SF2
    ver. 0.95
    This is a third party add on of the OH-6A CAYUSE using models* and cockpits created by me.
    *External model is build by my friend Tomek Wachowski and me, years ago for differnt purpose. Fortunately he found some early work files on his hard drive and brought to me. With some work i was able to bring it back to life. Technicaly it is 80% new model compared to original old one flying somewhere out there.
    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.
    Few thing still needs to be done here. But I decided to upload it already.

    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.
     
    Standard commands for activating Loach features:
     
    OH-6A Loach:
     
    ARRESTING HOOK - jump from pilot station to gunner station.
     
    LANDING GEAR - Nose light deploy/retract at any speed. Don't forget to retract before shooting.
     
    A2Ground mode - M70E1 gunsight.
     
    In OH-6A Cayuse model XM70E1 gunsight will apear in cockpit and external model only when gun is loaded on weaponstation.
     
     
    OH-6A Cayuse only:
     
    ANIMATION 8 - front left door (ext and cockpit view)
     
    ANIMATION 9 - front right door (ext and cockpit view)
     
    ANIMATION 10 - rear door.
     
     
    This helicopteris build in two variants. First is ‚clean’ out of factory OH-6A Cayuse. Just small scout chopper. This is additional aircraft to main file here.
    OH-6A Cayuse as seen on many photos from Vietnam War. Known also as Loach.
    In this model you can switch to rear gunner positionand actualy really hit ground targets with M60. You just have to aim throug rear – front sight line. Like in real gun.
    It is not prefect but this game as you know is not supporting choppers, double cockpits and many many more things. So this time again it is just to have at least good feeling.
     
    Gunner is made as internal weapon not weapon station. This way is better. Gunner is set as SECONDARY GUN by default.
     
    You can really fly low and slow. And in Pink Team just mark targets for Cobra wingman.
    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 her to control is using rudder and vector thrust control.
     
    Fuel. Remeber it is small chopper. And it can carry only around 54 US Gals of fuel. I belive it is enough for around 2 hours of flight here maybe little more.
     
    Skins.
    All serial numbers are historicaly correct.
    Paint schemes and markings. I was trying to be acurate as much as possible in paint schemes and markins. Some skins for unit are generic because there were some little diferences within unit itself. Plus this schemes represents aircrafts used bu units during 2-3 year of service.
     
     
    OH-6A Cayuse standard olive green paint with two serial numbers.
     
    OH-6A Loach. Here i was trying to match my AH-1G Cobra.
    All serial numbers are historicaly correct.
    D Company 227th AHB
    11th ACR
    C Troop 1/9 Cavalry
    D Troop 1/4 Cavalry
    D Troop 3/4 Cavalry
    C Troop 16th Cavalry
    F Troop 4th Cavalry
     
     
    Story about Weapon systems.
    Internal. Gunner with M60 400 round of ammo.
    No flash by default. Because with cocpit movement on gunner station it apear somewhere on elbow. better when it is not there. It can be easy changed by setting entry on M60 in aircraftdata.ini to TRUE
     
    Additional Weapons.
    - Weapon Station 1
     
    XM27E1 – M134 Minigun
    M27 - as above redesignated an unfaired Minigun M134 since 1969.
    XM8 – M129 40mm automatic grenade launcher. Not seen in Vietnam.
     
     
    Plus some extra weapons that were spotted on photos from Vietnam War.
     
    - Weapon Stations 2 & 3
    Up to two single tubes for Mk40 FFAR rockets attached on skids, with different warhead rockets. M151, M156, M229, M255A1, M259, M257, M247.
     
    - Weapon Station 6
    Experimental quad launcher unit developed by Rock Island Arsenal attached inside cargo compartment. Similiar to system mounted later in exported versions of H-500 Series. Very rare, seen on few pictures from Vietnam War but it was there.
    Do not mix Weapon station 2 and 6 on loadouts menu. Meaning to be correct 2 or 1 single tube OR Quad launcher.
     
    - Weapon Station 7
    Most interesting is 7 tube XM158 launcher attached to XM27 susbsytem instead of 7.62mm minigun. Very rare field mod probably instaled only on one aircraft (no. 67-16321). I just used two versions with M151 and M156 warheads.
     
    - Weapon Stations 4 & 5
    Smoke grenades. DO NOT GIVE THEM TO WINGMAN.
    Just five colours of smoke grenades, Yellow, White, Green, Red, Violet. I am not sure if this will support available color smoke effects. So probably wil need to create new smoke effects or mod smoke grenades.
     
    - Weapon Station 8
    Exhaust modification in late Loaches. Starting 1972 when SA-7 was threatening US crews this mod was often instaled on scout choppers. Same purpose as on late G Cobra models. I will apear on aircraft by default starting 1973 due to loadout.ini file.
     
    - Weapon Stations 9, 10, 11, 12.
     
    Not to be used on OH-6A !
    Purpose of this is to play Pink Team on single mission with armed AH-1G Cobra.
    In single mission on loadout menu you can change wingman aircraft to any available AH-1G Cobra and arm it with designated weapons for Cobra. If you don't like this option you can easly disable this by puting \ mark in data.ini file in front of weapon station entry.
     
     
    Have fun. Enjoy.
    Report bugs. Mod it your way.
    Hope I did not miss anything here
    Regards.
    More to come in OH-6 category.

  21. Purple Foxes

    This skin for the CH-46 is in tribute to HMM-364. I served with the Marines in Vietnam (69-70). I was stationed at a little Combat Base named An Hoa south of Da Nang in an area called "Arizona Territory". When things got tough and the ceiling was low these guys could be depended on to fly from Da Nang to An Hoa with amo, supplies and mail. The emblem on the tail was a purple fox surrounded by the moto they lived up to - "Give A Shit"
