BELL AH-1Q COBRA Ver 2.2 for SF2
January 2016

 

This is a third party add on of the AH-1Q Cobra 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.

******************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.

 

Standard commands for activating Cobra features:

 

AIRBRAKES - sun filter/shader on off - just for fun no airbrakes so empty animation slot for use.

 

ARRESTING HOOK - jump from pilot station to gunner station.

 

LANDING GEAR - belly light deploy/retract at any speed in late models
- nose lights activate/deactivate in early model. Lights must on.

 

A2A mode - gunner station guncross for turret.

 

A2Ground mode - pilot M73 cross.

 

ANIMATION 7 - turret doors

 

ANIMATION 8 - ammo bay dooors

 

ANIMATION 9 - gunner door (ext and cockpit view)

 

ANIMATION 10 - pilot door (ext and cockpit view)

 

Added eye candy parking animation.

 

WARNING!

 

This is totaly new file. I highly recomend to backup your old files. OR just delete all old files.
This is totaly new files and will not work in many parts with old.

 

There is still old file available to download.
New file is named AH-1Q_Ver2.5_SF2_2016.rar

 

For take off: Around 75% of throttle vector (small needle on RPM clock in cockpit should be like 65degree up) - (default ctrl + ) and then increase power to 70-85% (or more for quick lift) and pull controll stick little and snake will take off. Then reduce throttle vector as needed and reduce power to 69%. It should fly around 110kts now. 69% is about cruising speed.

 

When on the ground you can see rotating blades for pitch and roll. Just additional and unnecesary thing (not visible so much when flying) but it is possible so it is there. Not working like i want but better then nothing.

 

There are two different pylons on inboard stations one for rocketpods one for gunpods. Just to have a proper angle of fire with GP. It is not proper for real model but in my opinion best what can be done for SF engine. Rocket pods are ok with correct angle on inboard stations.

 

 

 

There is skin only for 11 ACR in Europe. Well Q was upgraded to S(MOD) quickly so not much info to find about Q in units.
All serial numbers are proper for Q model but am not sure if these numbers appeared in 11th ACR.
15086 for sure was there.

 

Weapons.
All weapons are reskined. TOW models are new.
Most of the weapon are same as in previous packs and are common to G/Q/S/P model.
Including XM158 and M200 launchers.
TOWs BGM-71A/B

 

One more thing. I am using mostly standard weapon effects.
Make sure to edit it your way if you decide to use this weapons.

 

CHANGES to previous version:
New skins, fixed some details on model, fixed some ini lines.
TOW Weapons redone.
Changed loadouts,
TOW launchers are part of airframe, now it is loaded diferent way then before and not using weapon rack.

 

Pilots:
I am using helopilots by OldDiego.
Some pilots models might be too big for this helo.

 

Instalation:

 

Copy all files into specific folders.
