Soko G2 Galeb


A bit of history:

 

Yugoslavia's Aeronautical Technical Institute began design work on an airplane, named Galeb, in 1957. The first flight of the prototype was performed on 31 July 1961. Soon, after a full-size wooden mock-up, the second prototype Galeb 2 was built The Air Force needed a trainer with secondary combat ability that could operate from unprepared runways. Not familiar with such requirements, the designers provided for landing gear strong enough to make the aircraft suitable for landing on aircraft carriers.

Production began in 1964, making it the first indigenous jet to enter mass production in Yugoslavia. The first production series G-2A was entered in the aircraft register of the Yugoslav Air Force on 30 July 1965, and the last one on 6 January 1981. Production of updated aircraft for export to Libya was extended until mid-1983. Soko produced a total of 248 Galeb aircraft, 132 of which were used by the Yugoslav Air Force. In the first Congo war, a total of three J-21 Jastrebs and one G2Galeb were delivered to the government, flown and mantained by yugoslav mercenaries.In early 90’s during the Yugoslav war, many airframes of dismissed Galebs were put in flight condition and used together with the single seater variant Jastreb as ground attackers from all sides.

 

Installation instructions:

Put the files in the respective folders.

There are some .INI files to be edited because not everyone have it in the same condition. For exhample: there are guns and a couple of weapons to be added to their respective WEAPONDATA.INI and GUNDATA.INI and then run the editors.

Plus extract or modify the SOUNDLIST.INI in Flight folder in order to have the JATO sound.

 

Flight Instructions:

This model have a simulated JATO rocket effect to help in take-offs especially when eavy loaded. To activate the JATO use the controls used for vector thrust. (down to activate - up to deactivate) This system works on the principle of the gun recoil so the "propellent" will empty when ammo finish. The rockets work for 14 seconds. Is recomended to not fire the JATO until 150 Km/h.

When the rockets shuts down you could jettison the spent bottles by Ctrl-D as droptanks.

 

Credits:

Well. If someone want to convert it to SF2 standards... why not.

 

 

It works fine on my SF-2I last patched (conversion is quite easy).

 

The Jato rockets are fantastic. :yikes:

 

Very good Job my friends !

Thx Paul,

 

the JATOS do work, their flames are visible, the bottles do show up in the loadout screen - yet they do not appear as a visual model. i put the bottiglia in the weapons folder, adjusted the weapons.ini - nothing. what is wrong ?

cheers

Hi !!

 

I have exactly the same problem.

In my full merged SF2 installation the plane sinks into the ground and explodes.

Strangly my wingmates are all ok and taxi to runway and take off.

When i start in the air the plane drops like a stone.

Has anybody an idea?

Weird. It works just fine in my merged install. Are you using a third-party terrain?
