About This File
This aircraft mod represents Mikoyan-Gurevich's Ye-8 experimental fighter and its fictional updated "M" variant. There are slight variations compared to the actual prototype and the pits are pure fictional as there are no pictures that show how that looked in its original form, so its a mix of various systems used or developed in that time frame that the aircraft was developed.
This package comes with 3 skin set for each variant, with decals for Soviet aircraft, since birds for LSK and Czechoslovakia use stock decals.
This model is meant for SF2 games only, and SF2 Europe is required as some of the skins use stock decal numbers.
Install is the regular dropping the contents in their respective places.
Please note: The model might gets heavy on FPS in large formations on weaker machines, so if required, either resize skin files or use lower lod "_nd" as lod1.
New weapons are provided - some type specific - beside these the model uses the general Soviet weapons.
Be aware - In the 1970's and later when AA-8 can be selected, manually double loadout of these can happen.
Make sure to read the manual included with the package.
