CHANGES:

I highly recommend to overwrite previous files decals/weapons/guns- or best is delete the old one and put new files.
YOU NEED TO DELETE OLD AIRCRAFT FOLDERS CH-53Cand HH-53C and HH-53B from Vietnam pack.  Many things were changed and as tested Overwriting may cause some problems...So delete old ones put new ones.
The rest (except Aircraft folders) are same can be overwritten without fear.
Small changes in ini files, corrections on fuel loadout, changes in cockpit ini. 
Small changes in skins. Also No longer fake weapon "no gun" is needed - thanks to The Trooper. He pointed small fix in data.ini.
Added simple bump and specular maps. Also added damage tgas.
Major changes in the cockpit - now it is much more correct. Although probably not everyone cares ore will see a difference. Anyway.


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

FakePilot mod needed to run this mod. 
As always.

Standard animation commands HH-53 C:

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

ANIMATION 1 - cargo ramp half open
ANIMATION 2 - cabin windows
ANIMATION 3 - wipers outside/inside
ANIMATION 4 - refueling probe
Hook - changes position when refueling to see the tip of the spear.

rescue op:
Open "bombbay" doors - cargo ramp and right side hatch/door
ANIMATION 8 - Open side doors, lower jungle penetrator
ANIMATION 9 - deploy PJ
ANIMATION 10 - lower/raise hoist.
Animation 8, 9 and 10 have a speed limit. So you can't hoist on full speed.

With little practice, you can even hoover. Without fake flaps and airbrakes.
Important here to control is using rudder and vector thrust control.
Normally throttle vector control on 88-89 degree increase power 70% then slowly more and more, wait and it will take off.

 

Cockpits.
One cockpit for HH-53C and CH-53C equipped with RWR and one cockpit for earlier non rwr HH-53B. Historically not all HH-53C airframes were equipped with RWR. BUt this mod covers RWR mod installed.

Skins.
All serial numbers are based on available photos and are historically correct and few versions of one unit for each helo.
Few versions of one unit for each helo.
CH-53C 21st SOS
HH-53C 37th and 40th ARRS
HH-53B 37th and 40th ARRS

Weapons.
The only "offensive" weapon is left/right side gunner equipped with GAU-2 minigun. Well, it is quite a defensive weapon.
Unlike in pack 'Over Europe' here CH-53C can't be equipped with a refueling probe (small ini tweak will do the trick). 

Fuel Tanks 450 US Gal. for CH-53C and HH-53C and 650 US Gal. for HH-53B

There is a separate weapon station called SandyStation - with allowed all sort of offensive weapons. Purpose of this station is to fly with Sandy (or any other USAF aircraft) as wingman fully loaded. Same way can be added Sandy fuel tanks.
IMPORTANT -
Due to tu construction of this mod, it is better to use collision and landing on NORMAL setting. On hard, you may have some complications on the airfield - especially with underslung cargo load.

 

Pilots - best to use is OldDiego's pilots.

 

Have fun.
Edit and report bugs.
