F-2H Banshee Updated data pack v1.1

This is a further update of the DATA.inis of the RAZBAM F-2H Banshee.

In this updated data pack, there are changes in the data.ini, trying to achieve realistic performance specs.

So changes are done in almost every aspect of the specs (weight, flightdata, engine thrust etc) for being as close to the real thing as possible.

For using this pack you need to have downloaded first


- the original RAZBAM Banshee (Go to RAZBAM website for more details)

- the Banshee Tweeks Pak -for Razbam Banshees of Wrench

Credis should go to

- RAZBAM for the original release

- Wrench for making this really usable in missions/campaings

- Ravenclaw_007 for the AN-M30 bomb

- Spillone for - at least - some of the sounds


Thoughts for further upgrades

- The AltitudeTableNumData & DryMachTableNumData are really very limited and are restricting realism. Please give me help to correct them. DONE

- The F2H-3 (F-2C) is without wingtip tanks but in reality all the -2,-3,-4 models had the capability of carrying wingtip tanks.
I am planning to substitute the LOD of the -3 with the -4 model (since these two were identical externally) but for doing so I am waiting your feedback.DONE

INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS

- Overwrite everything above v1.0. Place the banshee f2h4.LOD (which you can purchase from the RAZBAM website) in your F-2H3 folder.


What's new in v1.1

- The Destroyed Model now it's the stock F-84F one.

- The F3H-3 (F-2C) now uses the F3H-4 LOD. Indeed, the -3 also used more the wing tip tanks than not, since they had a minimal effect on overall performance.

- Further updated engine data.

- Corrected ground clearence for the F3H-2.

- Corrected loadouts. Now the wing pylon can be loaded with bombs (historical).

- Small touches here & there for better overall result.

Issues

- The -4 used a different radar than the -3 model that had also a different radar screen with different symbology (not a successful one, as it often mentioned).
However, it seems that we have the -3 style radar screen for the - 4 model too.

- In some sources it's stated that the -4 had 20% more range than the -3 model. I am not convinced for that.
Most likely it had to do with the need for full throttle/max power more often than the -4 model
in combat conditions, something which indeed reduced endurance. Therefore I kept the same radius for the -3 & -4 models.

- The Canadians seldom used their wing tip tanks. I had a hard time to spot canadian F-2s with wing tip tanks when in actual service.
The most likely explanation is that with the small canadian aircraft was too much to handle the take off of the approx. extra 1 ton of weight with the wingtips on the weak -3 model.
If someone wants a tank-less RCN F-2, I can update the pack. However the final solution will be to add the tanks as loadouts.

I highly doubt being the author of the destroyed model, if you used the one in the RF-84 pack WIP, the author of the model is, probably, Florian (but I'll have to check, it should be in the readme anyway). IF you used any of my work, it might be because I built a new rudimentary template for the Banshees, which I think was included in the Colourful Korea pack I released at some point.

Anyway, congrats on the release, the 50's era really can do with some more love.

No, in this release there are only ini files.

Thanks, I HAD TO do this, F-2 was an excellent design, the one that established McDonell as a major US manufacturer. Very modern in its systems for its day, pleasant to fly, also very fast for a straight wing plane.

I 'll correct the credits if you feel that it's necessary.

Damn, I wish I still had the Banshee, and any other Razbam plane I once had...
My divorce and PC breakdown made me lose all, and the RAZBAM d*ckheads
never even bothered listening to my request. Those of you who have it,
you are lucky bastards! ;-)
