MiG-27K (carrier based)


MiG-27K (K ... Korabelnui ... carrier based) for WoE

 

This is a mod of the stock MiG-27 of Wings over Europe.

It will not work with SFP1 and WOV because the lod files are not included.

If you want to use it with SFP1 or WOV you must extract the files MiG-27.lod

MiG-27_LOD2.lod

MiG-27_LOD3.lod

MiG-27_LOD4.lod

MiG-27_LOD5.lod from objects.cat of WOE and copy them in the MiG-27K folder.

 

******************************************************

INSTALLATION:

 

Unzip all files into your Wings Over Europe/Objects/Aircraft folder.

 

Thats it.

 

******************************************************

 

The MiG-27K was originally intended as attack plane of the soviet carriers of the Orel class. In the 70th the Orel was a high ranking aircraft carrier project of the Soviet Navy (Project 1153 if i remember right). It was canceled by Marshall Grechko who favored the Project 1143, the later Kiev class aircraft carrier.

The MiG-27K was build in 2 or 3 prototypes and were tested at the Saki facility (Crimea Penisula).

 

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

 

 

differences to stock MiG-27:

* modified flightmodel of the plane to improve the handling.

* added capability to land on aircraft carriers

* added some armour, so that the MiG-27 now can survive MG fire

* added on board jammer

* added 15 flares and 15 Chaff

* added Magos great MiG-21F cockpit (thanks for it Mago!)

* plane can now fly intercept and CAP missions

 

Known problem: You cant see the tailhook coming down.

 

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

 

 

Hope you enjoy it

MANY KUDOS Michael!!!! :clapping::ok::good:

 

I never thought of doing this! I'm adding her to my Soviet Navy campaign. She'll be a great stand in until a Su-39 is built.

 

THANK YOU!!!!!

The Mig-27K was actually a late-model variable wing variant of the Mig-27, not widely fielded. the carrier aircraft intended for the Soviet Fleet was the Mig-29K.

 

but I downloaded it and looking forward to trying it out.

Yes that is true but it is a "What if" aircraft.

The real K were rebuild soviet MiG-27 for export. K means there "kommertschnui". For the case of my "what if" K stands for "korabelnui" ship based
