PAF F-7P Skybolt Interceptor For SF2
For SF2,Full-5 merged or at Minimum SF2E and SF2V(Required for Cockpit and HUD)
After nearly two years use of the F-7M, Pakistani Air Force (PAF) returned the 20 F-7M aircraft to China in the late 1980s with recommendations for 24 upgrades, including replacing the original GEC-Marconi Type 226 Skyranger radar with the Italian FIAR Grifo-7 radar, and AIM-9 Sidewinder capability.
The Italian radar weighs 55 kg, had a slot antenna planar array, and had a range greater than 50 km, while the British radar only weighs 42 kg, with a parabolic antenna, but only had range of 15 km. Both radars have a mean time between failure rate of 200 hours. J-7MP:is the design specially tailored to Pakistani requirements.
Alternative to J-7MG, similar to the J-7MG except with Italian FIAR Grifo-MG radar, which further increased the sector of scan to +/- 30 degrees from the +/- 20 degrees of Grifo-Mk-II on F-7P. The Grifo-MG radar has better ECCM, look-down and shoot-down capabilities than its predecessor Grifo-Mk-II, while the weight remained the same. The number of targets can be tracked simultaneously is increased from the original 4 of the Grifo-Mk-II to a total of 8 of the Grifo-MG. Pakistan and Bangladesh evaluated the aircraft, and evolved to F-7PG.
This mod represents the F-7P Skybolt in service with the PAF from the late Eighties.This version of the aircraft is not to be confused with the newer F-7PG with it's Double Delta Cranked wing profile.The base model used is the stock TW Mig-21 F-13 as it is exactly like the F-7P.All the texturing was done using Gimp2.6.The Skins were made by modifying the stock grey skin and include textures for:
CCS Grey(Kill Markings)
No.2 Squadron Lo-Viz
The Weapons loadout is completely revamped to include western munitions.The Aircraft still however,uses the stock fuel tanks.This F-7P is strictly made to be used for Air Defence.But,Ground munitions are still included for pilots who like to bomb.
