Hello,

 

i tried to make the stock an-12 flyable, which works generally, but i have problems to create an

an-12_data.ini file. Just wanted to add a recon mission and eventually a bomb loadout, but i wasn't able to do so...

 

Is there someone who already did such changes to his An-12 ???

Or is it possible to download a "working" An-12 from somewhere ???

 

Thanks for your help !

So, i can fly it now. Thank you.

 

But what about the an-12_data.ini ??? Where can i get it ? I will need one, if i wanna change the Primary Missions and loadout, i guess...

 

Even don't understand where from the game get the informations about the plane without the An-12_data.ini...

There was similar prob like yours. You need extract An-12_data.ini from object.cat file. Look on post number two on that link

IIRC, The Wrench did this about four years ago, and even created a "what if" WWII Japanese heavy bomber using the An-12.

Don't I wish I was that clever 4 years ago!!!! :rofl:

No, that was somebody else; it's supposed to represent the Rita.

 

Ghostrider883 has an Indian AF mod of it here at CA, that carries "booms" in the cargo bay

The CA download link of the indian An-12 by ghostrider doesn't work anymore, so is there a other page where i could find it ? :blush:

 

I know I've seen a bomber version at another site, though, I'm a bit sketchy as to where it was. I was sure it was at Column5, but I'm at work and can't verify that. Give it a go, but I'll check my links when I get home and post the direct link if I can find it.

After extracting the An-12_data.ini i was able to do the changes and finally my An-12 is flyable in a B-52 pit and has the ability to hold 4 Soviet Bombs (max 12t).

Now I will fly some armed recon missions...

 

Thanks again for the (very fast) help !!!!!!

 

Good work, guys !

This is what is inside the An-12 external model. For a *very* quick test, I use a fast lashup job with A-4B panel. A-6 panels may be better, and a stock animated ThirdWire co-pilot can be added to the right crew compartment area.
