Well that's just the fuel tube and side supports, but the pylon is missing.

Well, I am a bit of a maniac about aircrafts loaded with drop tanks :grin:

So I spent some time looking into the issue and here are 2 solutions:

 

Solution 1 - go get the new drop tank by Spillone104

 

Solution 2:

- do not Spillone104's tank, but keep the stock one;

- extract the MiG-17_DATA.ini, open it;

- go to the weapons stations entries and edit as follows:

[LeftTankStation]

........

ModelNodeName=LeftWing_OuterPylon <-- it exists in the model, but is missed (intentionally or not) in the data.ini

 

[RightTankStation]

........

ModelNodeName=RightWing_OuterPylon <-- it exists in the model, but is missed (intentionally or not) in the data.ini

 

Now, when you select the stock drop tanks, these will appear loaded on a pylon, not just hanging on a fuel pipe and side supports. :drinks:

 

P.S. Spillone104, sorry I noticed this just now... Had it been earlier I would not have bothered you biuld another drop tank. I am sorry!

might want to let TK know about that over at the 3rd Wire site .. so he can fix it BEFORE SF2NA comes out

 

nice catch!! (and thanks for the walkaround book ... didn't have that one in my collection!)

:dntknw:

The outer pylons are there only on the MiG-17 and deffinitely missing on the MiG-17F and MiG-17PF.

So, for MiG-17 one can either choose to edit the ini and still use the stock pylons or go for Spillone104's tank.

For the later models - 17F and 17PF, only Spillone104's tank with built-in pylon does the job.
