About This File

SA.341 B/C/D Gazelle Ver 1.0 for SF2

 

This is a third party addon of SA.341 Gazelle helicopter.
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.

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.
Generaly model is almost the same as old one. My work was to add some parts here and there (floaters, new sights, new pylon, 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.
This is third part of my gazelles rebuild. It represents Westland built versions of - Gazelle B, C and D used by United Kingdom military units.
Few changes to previous French model.

 


This mod represents few versions of Gazelle used in United Kingdom military.

 

HT.2 Training, liaison, transport helicopter used by Royal Navy

 

HT.3 Training, liaison, transport helicopter used by Royal Air Force

 

AH.1 Army Air Corps helicopter used as recon, liaison, light transport.

 

While HT.2 and HT.3 are pure slick and clean helos. AH.1 version saw some combat.
Thats why in this pack it is seperated in few parts.
First is main AH.1 general helicopter used by Army Air Corps and Royal marines. This is unarmed version, here can be found in 3 versions -early, late with Ferranti AF532 observation sight and late version vith external recon pod.

 

AH.1 as all british gazelles are unarmed helicopters used mainly for recon duties. However durin Operation Corporate some of Army Air Corps and Roya Marines helos were equipped with Matra six shot rocket pods (there were no aiming sight or anything like that instaled) Still due to reports it never saw combat use. Only training shooting.

 

 

 

******************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:

 

There is no weapons. It is only floaters, engine filter, suppresed exhaust and some other stuff that can be added to helo, just for look.

 

Only offensive weapon added is in seperate folder for Operation Corporate. Matra LRF2 Rocket pods.

 

NOTE.
In AH.1 - 86 ver. you have acces to recon pod and search light. By loading search light you will have search light "beam" while light are one. But unfortunately light source will apear also when searchlight is not loaded. Anyway this is just experimental thing here.

 


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.
ANIMATION 4 - Floaters for 'emergency' landing only below (40?) km/h and only when loaded on aircraft.

 

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 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.
Skins are made for early and late paint used by Army Air Corps and Royal Marines.

 

Inside there is seperate folder Called "Operation Corporate' and 'Operation Granby'
Inside you will find whole helicopter pack needed to fly in specific instal for Falklands and Desert Storm mods.

 

 

 

 

 


Pilots - best to use is OldDiego's pilots.
Two repainted versions of pilots are provided.
Those are repaint of OldDiego's great usn pilots.

 

Nation for this helo depends on version. There is Royal Navy (alos for Royal Marines) and RAF. Also new nation ARMY AIR CORPS is added in specific txt file. This should be added (by copy text from provided file) to nationlist.ini
