About This File

Sud Aviation/SNCASE SA.341 and SA.342 Gazelle Ver 1.0 for SF2

 

This is a third party addon of SA.341 and SA.342 Gazelle helicopter.
This is orignal model by BPAo moded by me.
The original flight model is standard as on many free to download helicopters modified by me. I am not using airbrakes or flaps but flying fast and slow is stil possible, even hovering with little practice.
It is designed for and works only in SF2 series. And will never work in SF1.

 

Please read this as some info from here might be useful in game.

This is highly modified SA-341 Gazelle by BPAo (TMF). Lucky, thanks to Crusader I had access to original max file. So I could work a little on this great helo. At first I was planing only to rebuild middle east Gazelles to have some balance of power in Wings Over Israel game. But having oportunity to work on file brought me at this point. And I decided to go with French Gazelles first.
Generaly model is almost the same as old one. My work was to add some parts here and there (rwr,cable cutters, new athos, some internal parts, skids etc..). Rearanged animations and added new. Weapons/pylons are part of airframe. Ive added new rotor. Also I've rearanged UVW mapping. So basicaly skins are 70% new.

 

I was putting some hangar/loading screenies but finaly it covers only few models. Rest must be done in future.

 


This mod represents few versions of Gazelle.
Unarmed called 'Lisse'. Early 1973 version without APX-397 sight and late already equipped with 'Athos'
Armed with 20mm cannon called 'Canon' and Version armed with HOT missiles usually called HOT but here it is split into two models; one with Athos sight and second with Viviene.
Also you can find here Air to Air escort version -early called 'Celtic' and late called "Mistral"
Mistral/Celtic version is set as attack role and has similar aircraft dutties as attack version plus escort. Thing is that you may consider changing role only to recon/escort as it will not perform well agianst ground targets.

 

 

 

******************IMPORTANT******************

 

This addon works with my WeaponPACK (included in rar file). Most of pylons/launch rails are part of airframe. So in weapons folder you have to put only ini files. All of weapon stations are made as specific station code and will work only with this cargo pack. Of course you can edit and use any other weapons availalbe.

 

Weapons included:

 

SA.341F2 'Canon'
NC621 20mm automatic canon. Two verson low and high RPM rate.
By default in loadout.ini it is low-rpm always. Better do not give hi-rpm to wingman.

 

SA.341M 'HOT' Sometimes called as SA.341F 'HOT' first model equipped with HOT missiles. Only 40 build because of underpowered engine. Somehow it was in use and passed form unit to unit until 90's - HOT-1,2,3 missiles.

 

SA.342L1 'Celtic'/'Mistral'
Mistral Air to air missiles.

 

SA.342M and M1
HOT-1,2,3 missiles.

 

All late versions have stations for flare launchers, suppresed exhaust and/or engine intake filter.

 

 

 

IMPORTANT THING ABOUT WEAPONSTATIONS.

 

F2 'Canon' and M/M1 version 90 and 93 have weaponstations calling for use Mistral ATAM.
THIS IS NOT for use on those helos. It is to have possibility to assign L1 Celtic/Mistral for wingman to have Air to air escort. So do not use it on F or M version as it will not apear there.

 

Cocpits.
All versions have dedicated cockpits. It is simplified and unified version of Gazelle cockpit.
In every pit you can switch from pilot to co-pilot/weapon operator seat.
On co pilot seat you have access to 1x "binocular" sight Athos/Viviane. By choosing radar on you will have "sniper" zoom. I dont know how many x zoom is that. It's zooming. And it is acurate somehow. With little practice you can even hit targets from 1-1.2 km.
aiming crosshair is 'what if' since I never found the look of real one

 

In HOT equipped version by selectiong HOT missile sight will lock on target as all HOT missiles are made as EOGR.

 

As Mistral and Celtic are escort versions ther is not much features in cockpit.

 


Animations and standard commands:

 

LANDING GEAR - Nose light deploy/retract at any speed.

 

ANIMATION 1 - right side door.
ANIMATION 2 - left side door.
ANIMATION 3 - rear doors.

 

Thereis also parking animation that works only when aircraft will be placed by game engine on airfiled as parked aircraft.

 

Flying.
As with all my previous helos flying is quite easy. With little practice you can even hoover. Without fake flaps and airbrakes.
Important here to control is using rudder and vector thrust control.
Normaly throtle vector control on 88-89 degree increase power 55% wait little and then increase to 100% and helo will take off nicely. 341 version got little less power in engine.

 


Skins.
There is just few skins but lot of use of it in few units. So it is more about decals assigned.
All serial numbers are based on available photos and ALAT documents and are historicaly correct.
I was trying to put all real units with real codes/numbers for specific year. Not always easy.
There is still some numbers missing.

 

Inside there is seperate folder Called "Operation_Dauget'
Inside you will find skins made for use with ODS mod for SF2.
It contains skins and decals for some units during French part of Operation Desert Storm. French codename for his operation was Dauget.

 

Only thing you have to do is coppy all files exept skin folders and use it in you ODS mod. Also specific loadouts for this period are provided. Due to hot climate/engine power, ALAT used only two HOT missiles. Same thing nearly ten years earlier during operation Manta in Tchad.
