About This File
Dassault Mirage IIIO, RAAF
For SF2, Full-4 Merged -or, at MINIMUM!- SF2:E and/or SF2:I
*Note: it should be stipulated at this time, that this aircraft mod is being released as a "stand in" until the proper 3 versions are completed and released by The Mirage Factory. At such time, my reccomendation is to delete this mod, as the TMF versions will be the correct 'body type' for F, A and F/A III0s as used by the RAAF*
This mod creates a 'stand alone' aircraft, using all in-house/in-game stock bits, to recreate some of the Mirage IIIO (F/A) used by the RAAF. This makes this mod slightly historically innaccurate, as mentioned above, there were 3 versions. This sorta kinda combines them.
You MUST have, at the least, SF2:E to access the MirageIIIC lods, and SF2:I to access the Shahak's cockpit. Therefore, this mod is truely, ONLY reccomended for a Full-4 Merged install, as the Game Engine will have full access to all the bits needed from the all the Object cats.
The 5 Skins are included with the pak are:
75 Squadron, in Natural Metal in the 1960s (called 75SqdnOld)
76 Squadron, also in NM for the 1960s (called 76SqdnOld)
3 Squadron, in gray/green camo for post-1970 usage *
75 Squadron, also in G/G Camo
77 Squadron, also in G/G camo
(3 Sqdn not shown in screenie)
*note: squadron badge decal is active, when in Real Life it was not,according to what little photographic evidence I could discover. A simple edit of the decals ini will remove it for the Historically Correct practicioner.*
As all markings are decals, it should be a simple matter for other skinners to create other squadrons by simply shifting decals around (Example: a NM 3 Squadron).
All new, 100% historically accurate* serial number decals have been created for all aircraft. Data ini edits change (essentially) nothing, but nationalizing the aircraft to Australia, and adding landing lights. A new userlist is incuded . The canopy is activated via an animation key; use shift/0 to open and close it.
Avionics mods add an audio-only RWR, and the Ground Mapping radar seen on the "A" variant, which was added to all at various times, creating the Mirage IIIO F/A. It's active on ALL, so just pretend. Loadouts are standard 3rdWire. No weapons pak is needed, and it should work with any/all/or none (ie: stock weapons)
*My research has shown that pretty much ALL the 116 III0s served with pretty much ALL RAAF Mirage squadrons at one time or another. So, don't be surprised to see some serials duplicated.*
As always, READ the enclosed readme for full, detailed instructions. This package has been broken down into the various folders that SF2 needs/requires/should have to make it a LOT easier to install. Also, as usual, the expected 'Notes and Other Nonesense' comments by me.
NOTE: this pack became moot with the release of the Oz Mirage DLC package. However, this one WILL still work, some a little renaming edit to remove conflicting names, and/or these decals can EASILY be used on the DLC Mirage IIIO
