'Lahatut' Hughes 500E/500MD TOW Defender Ver 2.0 for SF2

 

This is a third party add on of the Israeli version of Hughes 500 model helicopter 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.

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.
