What's a good plane for FAC on the Soviet side?

Recommended Posts

Hey Guys!

 

What's a good plane for FAC on the Soviet side? I'm using Yak-9 now...

 

Before that, I was having the Stuka (!) show up on my Soviet CAS missions :blink:

 

Thanks! <S!>

I'm sure it's not a priority but I would love to see a post WW2 Soviet prop job made.Somthing like a yak trainer would be usefull for FAC.or maybe a Mi-1 or 2 helo would be cool too.

There was a mod floating around a few years ago of the O-1 into a Yak-12 by someone-who-is-not-to-be-named.

 

It would be easy to duplicate, using the O-1E has a base: (mind you, the real one's were radial engined)

 

--NOTE: I have not personaly tested this mod, this is all off the top of my head---

 

d/l my mod of the L-19 Birdog, availabe at my site, or here at CA. This will give you an OD skin, and a mod of the P-39's cockpit to something you can fly and use. (yah, is says 'Cessna' on the dash...)

 

==ADVISORY: The flight model leaves something to be desired...==

 

Create new folder, call it "Yak-12"

Copy all the L-19 files into the new Yak folder

 

rename the L-19.ini to "Yak-12.ini"

rename L19_Cockpit.ini to "Yak12_COCKPIT.INI"

rename L-19_data.ini to "Yak-12_data.ini"

 

edit the ini as follows:

 

[AircraftData]

AircraftFullName=Yak-12 "Creek"

AircraftDataFile=Yak-12_data.ini

LoadoutFile=

CockpitDataFile=Yak12_COCKPIT.INI

HangarScreen=

LoadoutImage=L19_Loadout.bmp

AvionicsDLL=Avionics60.dll

 

Throw out the loadout ini, as we dont have any rockets like the US Army or USAF used for marking on the Red Air side. Actually if you want it as an AI only aircraft, you don't even need to cockpit stuff.

 

at the bottom, edit the texture info as follows:

 

[TextureSet001]

Directory=ODGreen

Name=ODGreen

Nation=Soviet

Squadron=

Specular=0.300000

Glossiness=0.000000

Reflection=0.000000

 

(note nation name change)

 

go to the ODGreen skin folder and do this to the textureset.ini:

 

[TextureSet]

Name=ODGreen

Nation=Soviet

Squadron=

Specular=0.300000

Glossiness=0.000000

Reflection=0.000000

 

Copy/paste this into a blank notepad, and save as 'Decals.ini' :

 

[Decal001]

MeshName=Fuselage

DecalFacing=LEFT

FilenameFormat=SovietNum

Position=-1.183,0.155

DecalLevel=0

DecalFacing=RIGHT

FilenameFormat=Insignia

Position=-2.9,1.25

Place it in the ODGreen skin folder. If prompted to overwrite, say "YES".

 

It should look something like this:

 

creek.jpg

 

 

That should hold everyone for a while. If there's any interest in it, I could easily put it together as a package for release. I'm sure I can find some kind of Soviet/WP rocket pod that'll work.

 

For another FAC alternative, may I also suggest Pasko's AN-2 Colt??? Not like the FAC function works anyway....
