Kiev final weapons test, Yak-38 in holding pattern.

Recommended Posts

I've sent the final data.ini and .DDS-format skins (thank you, Brain32 Lindr, and Krizis) to Marcelo, so it may be out soon. The Yak-38's FM still needs to be tweaked to SF2-standards, and of course, it must be sent back to Krizis for final consideration and release.

ONLY FOR SF2, WHY ?!? :fool::sorry:

 

Marcelo & Krizis could well decide to release their works for SF1, though SF2 is currently multi-threaded, and the next expansion pack and subsequent patches will expand on this (it will, according to TK, finally utilize all cores of a quad or hexa-core CPU). The Kiev itself weighs in at over 119,000 ploys, and sports 4096x4096 textures (as does the Yak38). So, they're both best run on a 64-bit operating system (better RAM utilization), and a quad-core processor. Even after reducing the textures to .DDS format, they both still place a significant load on the CPU and graphics system.

Wow, a Red-side carrier and Yak-38, should be fun!

Any SF2 object can run in SF1 2010 (WOI addon), Textures can always be shrunk by the user to lighter weight.

Hi poly models cannot be adjusted by anyone but the author, but usually marcelo Supplies a good set of distance lod's.

One simple awnser:

Gen1 dies out...

No more support (patches, new work on Gen1 Sims) from Thirdwire.

Expansion for Wings over Israel was the last thing for Gen 1 sims... :-(

Great images!! Kiev carrier and Yak-38 is an interesting combination. :drinks:

 

About SF1 and SF2... I remember that there was a patch released for use the Su-25 Frogfoot from NF4+ in SF1, and it works good! Maybe they make another patch for use these Yak-38/Kiev combination also in SF1.

What loadouts can carry the Yak-38? Only 4 stations? as this sounds pretty poor.

 

From Wikipedia:

 

Armament

 

Guns: GSh-23L 23mm gun pod (GP-9). This gun could be carried in one or two PUK-23-250 pods fixed under the external pylons of wings.

 

Bombs: two FAB-500 or four FAB-250 under pylons, two incendiary ZB-500, or two nuclear tactical RN-28.

 

Rockets: various types of rockets (up to 240 mm).

 

Missiles: two anti-ship or air-to-surface Kh-23. Each missile weighed 285 kg, was radiocontrolled and had 10 kilometres of range. The Kh-23 requires a guidance pod on one of the pylons. R-60 or R-60M air-to-air missiles could be carried under the external pylons.

 

Other: external tanks.

The Kh-23 (Cha-23) was rubbish. Only one of 1000 launched missiles hit. Later the Yak-38 got the Cha-25 missile family. This were high accurate and deadly weapons. Used in Afghanistan very successfully (the missiles, not the Forger :grin: )

Time ago I read that only a few Forgers were tested in Afghanistan in the 80's. I found this camo skin, but I didn´t see a picture of the real plane with these colours. (I only saw real plane's pictures in Dark Blue paint scheme).

"The initial colour scheme worn by the AV-MF Yak-38 consisted of dark green anti-corrosion paint on the undersides of the aircraft, with dark blue upper surfaces. This was later replaced by a light grey over dark grey scheme, frequently associated with the Yak-38M. An unusual green-over-silver "tiger" camouflage scheme, reportedly seen on an aircraft onboard Leningrad in 1986, was probably applied for one cruise only. Special camouflage schemes may also have been applied to aircraft involved in the Romb-1 trials in Afghanistan in 1980."
