This is the updated V4.0 version of Dave & Sundowners original Tornado GR1 & GR4 series. This pack is a combination of the previous V3.0 pack by Dave & Sundowner, the 2 extra Updates I released (V3.1 and V3.2) and my unreleased V3.3 Update, which included the improvements seen above. This pack can either be used as a Standalone (if you don't have the V3.0 pack) or as an Update of your existing Tornado pack.

 

This has been designed to work on everything from a Stock Game (July '13 patched) to a fully Modded install with NATO Fighters V etc. The new weapons are standalone and will not affect other weapons packs, however you may see other weapons from your pack are available. Please use the ones labelled "RAF (WEAPONS NAME)" (they're all grouped together for ease of use) as these have all been designed and/or modified for this Tornado Pack specifically, even though the Weapons may seem to be identical to ones you already have.

 

INSTALLATION

------------

 

Copy and paste the 4 folders into your Mod folder (usually C:\Users\YOUR NAME\Saved Games\ThirdWire\StrikeFighters2 Europe\) to add or update everything.

 

 

Aircraft Specific Info (in-game, not accurate to real life timeline) -

RAF TORNADO VERSIONS

---------------------

 

GR1_82 (1982-1989) - Carrys Unguided 1000lb Slick/Retarded Bombs, BL-755 Cluster Bombs, JP233 & ALARM.

 

GR1_90 (1990-1997) - The LGB years when the TIALD Laser Pod came into service which allowed it to carry 1000lb GBU-123 LGB's.

 

GR1DS_90 Desert Storm (1990-1991) - Year limited for Op Granby (Desert Storm) only. It can carry the same weapons fit as the GR1_90 above.

 

GR4_98 (1998-2005) - A complete systems overhaul of the GR1_90. Although massively upgraded from a GR1 due the RAF's lack of Hi-Tech weaponary this kept virtually the same weapons fit until 2002 when the RAF purchased their 1st truely Smart Weapons, the 1000lb Enhanced Laser/GPS Guided Paveway II and the Bunker Busting 2000lb Enhanced Laser/GPS Guided Paveway III.

 

GR4_06 (2006-2020) - 2006 saw the RAF finally get the advanced set of weapons they needed which included new Litening III Designation pods, 500lb Enhanced Laser/GPS Guided Paveway IV, Laser & IIR Brimstone Anti-Tank Missiles, Storm Shadow Cruise Missiles, ASRAAM and the RAPTOR recon pod. Due to their higher collateral damage risk the larger Paveway III was phased out for the the new Super Weapon the Storm Shadow, a Stealthy 500+ mile ranged Cruise Missile. This weapons update makes it the most advanced combat load currently carried by any aircraft in the world.

 

ROYAL SAUDI AIR FORCE VERSIONS

-------------------------------

 

GR1_93 RSAF (1993-2005) - The Royal Saudi Air Forces version of the standard GR1_90 with the same capabilities.

 

GR1_06 RSAF (2006-2020) - A modernisation program in 2006 brought their GR1_93's to a GR4-"Lite" standard (although still called GR1). It can carry IIR Brimstone (but not Laser) and Storm Shadow but none of the other advanced weapons/pods that a standard GR4 can carry.

 

 

OTHER INFO

-----------

 

Loadout Screen -

--------------

 

Because the Tornado carrys all of it's offensive weapons underneath please view the 3 loadout pictures included to understand which drop-down menu is used for each type of weapon.

 

GR1 (82) - The Top loadout box shows empty but it's the fuel tanks and ECM pods, DO NOT TOUCH!

 

GR1 (90) & GR1 Desert Storm - The Top loadout box shows empty but it's the fuel tanks and ECM pods, DO NOT TOUCH! Also it shows 4x ALARM fitted but it's actually 2x ALARM and 2x AIM-9, again DO NOT TOUCH!

 

GR4/RSAF - The Top loadout box shows empty but it's the fuel tanks, AIM-9/ASRAAM, ALARM and ECM pods, DO NOT TOUCH!

 

 

Issues -

------

 

1. There is still no animations for the Refueling Probe or Nose Wheel Steering and the Airbrake Jacks aren't modelled.

 

2. In the cockpit mirrors you can "just" about see the undercarriage through the model.
