Bomb Bay:
All the bomb carring planes have 4 "bomb bays". The first one can carry 24x250Kg bombs, the second 18x500Kg bombs, the third 6x1500Kg bombs and the last one could carry a single massive FAB-9000 or nuclear bomb.


All the models could carry SPRD-63 JATOs. Even if in reality it was only used in certification trials, all the aircrafts had provision to mount them.
Here you can use them as you like. JATO guns are part of the aircraft and the bottles are set as drop tanks. To activate, press the key assigned to Thrust vectoring down. To operate any kind of gun on the ground you need to have Weapons set to Normal or Easy in Gameplay options.
Start takeoff run and when the aircraft reach 200Km/h, activate the JATO rockets. Burn time is 15 seconds. Discard then the empty bottles, possibly not over populated areas.


This pack need SF2NA to work properly. It can also work in SF2 or SF2E but without KD and KPD models.


Red Side Standard Weapons Pack by Snailman is also required for the approriate bombs.

This is a great, fantastic pack that it took me some time to look at. The Tu-28 cockpit fits perfectly, like it was made for the Tu-22 in the first place.


The only problem I encountered is thay my wingman's wheels don't come up...any ideas?
