  1. 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 8 - front left door
     
    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.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

    Credits:
    Florian - BIG thanks for model.

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

    ******************IMPORTANT******************
     
    Standard commands:
    LANDING GEAR - Nose light deploy/retract at any speed.
     
    ANIMATION 1 - right side hatch and door.
    ANIMATION 2 - left hatch cabin windows
    ANIMATION 3 - wipers outside/inside
     
    Parking animations.
    Two parking animations included one for 'on land base' and other for 'on board' parking.
     
    Im including two vessels moded as USMC nation.(same as in AH-1J pack) so you can practice start and land.
    Those ships have moded catapults, deck and arresting cables in data.ini file.
    Those ships are limited only to those used during Vietnam War on WestPac/SEA cruises.
     
    You can fold tail and rotor by enabling animation in data.ini file. But it looks silly. And my intention for this animation was eye candy on board vessel.
     

    With little practice you can even hoover. Without fake flaps and airbrakes.
    Important here to control is using rudder and vector thrust control.
    With heavy cargo load probably you need little run on A model as engines on A are little underpowered.
    Normaly throtle vector control on 88-89 degree increase power 70% then slowly more and more, wait and it will take off.
     

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

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

    Pilots - best to use is OldDiego's pilots.
     
    This moid still needs some work. But I am afraid that if I will not upload it, I might never fully finish.
     
    Have fun.
    Edit and report bugs.

  8. 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.
     
    ***************
    THIS COCKPIT FOR SH-3 SEA KING OR ANY PART OF IT MUST NOT BE HOSTED OR
    POSTED FOR DOWNLOAD ON ANY OTHER WEB SITE WITHOUT MY EXPRESS
    PERMISSION, OR USED FOR ANY OTHER PURPOSE THAN THIRDWIRE FLIGHT
    SIMULATORS, AND MUST NOT BE SOLD OR OFFERED FOR SALE BY ITSELF
    OR WITH ANY OTHER FILES OR MODS.
    ***************
     
    Unpack the files.
    Drop all files into your mod folder the way they are setup in this pack.
     
    Credits:
    Florian - BIG thanks for model.
    Yakarov79 - me: INI work , skins, decals and cockpit. fake pilot mods.
     
    Have fun.
    Edit and report bugs.

  9. 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

  10. Sikorsky RH-53D Sea Stallion

    Sikorsky RH-53D Ver 1.0 for SF2
     

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

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

    ******************IMPORTANT******************
     
    Standard commands:
     
    LANDING GEAR - Nose light deploy/retract at any speed.
    ANIMATION 1 - right side door.
    ANIMATION 2 - left hatch cabin windows
    ANIMATION 3 - wipers outside/inside
    ANIMATION 4 - Refueling probe - H key (hook by default) will change seat position to see tip of the spear.
    ANIMATION 10 - Winch
     
    Parking animations.
    Two parking animations included one for 'on land base' and other for 'on board' parking.

    Cockpits.
    One cockpit based on NATOPS manual.
    Can mirrors show actual mirrored position ? Or it si embeded in game to show image above head ?
     
    Skins.
    All serial numbers are based on available photos, NAVY and USMC documents and are historicaly correct.
     
    Weapons.
    The only "offensive" weapon is left/right side gunner. Well im straffing convoys with it with great success.
    Important - if there is no gunner - fake weapon (no gun/empty) must be loaded. For now it must be this way.
    Same as default should be loaded Mk103 minesweep. This is allowing top cargobays to be seen.
     
    This addon works with my CargoPACK (included in rar file). All of weapon stations are made as specific station code and will work only with this cargo pack. Of course you can edit and use any other weapons availalbe. Here is experimental Mk105 minesweeper sled different than in previous CH-53D pack. This one is only for RH-53D. To see Mk105 open cargo bay.
    Also you can add refueling probe. At the begining of service this aircraft has only provisions for refueling porbe.
     

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

    USMC - special for use in Desert Storm mod if needed:
    - HMH-772 Det.A

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

    Open "bombbay" doors - cargo ramp and right side hatch/door
    ANIMATION 8 - lower jungle penetrator
    ANIMATION 9 - deploy PJ
    ANIMATION 10 - lower/raise hoist.
    Animation 8, 9 and 10 have speed limit. So you can't hoist on sull speed.
     
    Standard animation commands CH-53 C:
     
    ANIMATION 10 - lower/raise hoist.
    ANIMATION 1 - cargo ramp half open / right siede door,
    ANIMATION 2 - left hatch cabin windows
    ANIMATION 3 - wipers outside/inside
     
    With little practice you can even hoover. Without fake flaps and airbrakes.
    Important here to control is using rudder and vector thrust control.
    Normaly throtle vector control on 88-89 degree increase power 70% then slowly more and more, wait and it will take off.
     
    Cockpits.
    One cockpit based on CH-53 USAF and NATOPS manual
     
    Skins.
    All serial numbers are based on available photos and are historicaly correct.
     
    Weapons.
    The only "offensive" weapon is left/right side gunner equipped with GAU-2 minigun. Well it is quite defensive weapon.
    Important - if there is no gunner - fake weapon (no gun/empty) must be loaded. For now it must be this way.
    Fuel Tanks 450 US Gal. and 650 US Gals for HH-53B
     
    There is seperate weaponstation 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 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.
     
    Super Jolly Green in Vietnam skins
    few versions of one unit for each helo.
    CH-53C 21st SOS

    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.
     
    Pack comes with two versions of Defender. First is basic recon version. Second is aircraft equipped with TOW missile system.
     
    Skins are generic for Republic of Korea Army Aviation.
    All numbers as far as I know are are historicaly correct and are based on available photos. Just few numbers, but can be updated later.

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

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

    This 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.

    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:
     
     
    LANDING GEAR - Nose light deploy/retract at any speed. Don't forget to retract before shooting.
     
     
    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. It needs practice.
    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 use 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 as far as I know are based on photos and arehistoricaly correct.
     
    Two birds flew during operation Urgent Fury 68-17191 and ...(dont rememr right now second bird number).
     
    Weapons.
    XM27 – M134 Minigun
    M260 7 tube rocket launcher. First years of operation with mk40 rockets and later Mk66 rockets.
    Since M260 could fire Mk40 and Mk66 rockets here are two types. Early ears older and later new hydra 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.
     
    Enjoy and have fun.
    Jope everything works fine.
    Report bugs. Will fix ASAP.
     
    More six guns and night stalkers will follow.

    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.

  19. 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.

    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.

  20. 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"
