USN SAM pack


This is a complete package of SAMs used by the United States Navy from the early cold war era to present. Currently 33 different missiles are included.

I have meticulously researched, modified, tested and compiled these weapons so that I and other ship modders have a selection of realistic standardized missiles (one might say "Standard Missiles":D) to work with.

 

The medium and long range missiles have been assigned updated efects from SF2NA, as well as new sound effects (included in the package), which sound much more appropriate than the default sound. I'm particularly proud of the VLS launch effect, which I made by ripping and editing official footage; I think it adds to the immersion tremendously.

 

Note that two stock weapons, the RIM-2F and RIM-66B, are replaced by this package. I usually try to avoid this, but the RIM-2F model did not sit on launchers correctly, and both weapons had some wildly incorrect data.

 

Optional data files for a few stock and third-party USN ships are included which adds new weapons as appropriate and adjusts radar strength to more realistic levels.

 

Please see the readme for instructions, credits, and other details. If you have any questions, comments, concerns, or constructive criticisms regarding this model, please do not hesitate to contact me. Thank you!

      F-2 Banshee Updated data pack v1.0
      by FANATIC MODDER
      This is a further update of the DATA.inis of the RAZBAM F-2 Banshee.
      In this updated data pack, there are changes in the data.ini, trying to achieve realistic performance specs.
      So changes are done in almost every aspect of the specs (weight, flightdata, engine thrust etc) for being as close to the real thing as possible.
      For using this pack you need to have downloaded first:

      - the original RAZBAM Banshee (Go to RAZBAM website for more details)
      - the Banshee Tweeks Pak -for Razbam Banshees of Wrench
      https://combatace.com/files/file/14889-sf2-kaw-f2h-2-banshee-tweeks-pak-for-razbam-banshees/
      https://combatace.com/files/file/15415-sf2-f2h-3-banshee-tweeks-pak-for-razbam-banshees/
      https://combatace.com/files/file/15417-sf2-f2h-4-banshee-tweeks-pak-for-razbam-banshees/
      - the Thunderflash Superpack 0.2 of Gunrunner
      https://combatace.com/files/file/12401-rf-84f-thunderflash-superpack/
      For the Destroyed Model Only.
      If you don't want to bother with an extra download, you can use the stock F-84F Destroyed Model which is good enough.

      Credis should go to
      - RAZBAM for the original release
      - Wrench for making this really usable in missions/campaings
      - Spillone for - at least - some of the sounds
       
      - Gunrunner for the Destroyed Model (not included)

      Thoughts for further upgrades
      - The AltitudeTableNumData & DryMachTableNumData are really very limited and are restricting realism. Please give me help to correct them.
      - The F2H-3 (F-2C) is without wingtip tanks but in reality all the -2,-3,-4 models had the capability of carrying wingtip tanks.
      I am planning to substitute the LOD of the -3 with the -4 model (since these two were identical externally) but for doing so I am waiting your feedback.
       
      Remember this is a freeware!

      View File RSS SA-2 Guideline Pack Beta 0.41
      RED SIDE STANDARD SA-2 Guideline Pack 0.41 Beta
      ============================================
       
      This is a public test version. Please try out equipment playing from both sides. This pack has been tested against stock planes on stock terrain. Mostly on VietnamSE due SAM site density and fast loading time :)
      About 1000+ launch tests have been done on planes with various types with or without jamming equipment at low and high altitude. Ballistics have been also checked with HoneyFox's Missile Range Simulator.
       
      Introduction:
      -------------
      To follow the philosophy behind Red Side Standard Weapons Pack (RSSW) I made an attempt to standardize the SAM systems as well. The first of such, the SA-2 Guideline or System-75 family. Using multiple reference materials (both english an russian) we tried to fine tune the effectiveness of all the weaponry for satisfactory player game experience while keeping as much realism as possible. This provides more challenge playing on the blue side.
      Effectiveness for guided missiles and radars have been tuned to provide realistic hit rate within the proper launch requirements. Because of game limitations, this means some technical parameters and values may be different from real world data.
      We kept as much stock reference as we could to provide compatibility with original game standard (Naming, Types, etc).
      Yet, there are no new ground objects included, but many new equipment is WIP for the final version.
       
      Contents:
      ---------
      - The latest 3D models of the SA-2 family missiles from Spillone104 with thoroughly revised characteristics (FM, Guidance, Ballistics etc)
      - Weapon (and folder) names use common standard for convenience, clarity and simplified looks
      - Most objects use the stock TW 3D models
       
      Important changes:
      ------------------
      - All missiles have been changed from Beam Rider to SAHM guidance, as a work around the faulty "tail chasing" game logic also present with Rear60 IR seeking missiles. Also, "Beam Rider" guidance does not allow lead targeting of the missile.
      - All Fan Song radars have been set to their instrumented range, now it is fully up to the RCS, altitude and noise jamming values to determine the range of detection.
      - Target tracking range has been made equal to the search range - what the Fan Song can see can track immediately - launch is still limited by the missile parameters.
      - Missile Turn G and Seeker FOV has been toned down to (almost) real life data. It gives a chance to "Dance of Death" - outmaneuvering the missile in early planes. AI however will be still toast, though.
      - Now all missiles have new 3D models and new skins, thanks to Spillone104
      Credits:
      --------
      Ground objects: TW
      SA-2 missile family: Spillone104
      In-game testing: Everyone who gave us feedback and shared game experience! Thank you very much! I do count on more testing with the SA-2 and upcoming systems as well.
       
      Work in progress:
      --------
      New Fan Song 3D models (with correct size and antenna types)
      Various auxiliary vans or SAM site contruction
      New Search/Height inding radar 3D models associated with the sites on regimental level
      Experimental complete SAM site objects for terrains

      View File Su-27 Fictional Skins: US Navy Volume III - Adversaries
      This is a collection of 13 skins of the Su-27 Flanker in US Navy and Marine Corps Adversary paint schemes. Commands represented are:
      VFC-12 Fighting Omars VFC-13 Saints VMFT-401 Snipers Naval Strike Air Warfare Center (NSAWC, parent command of TOPGUN)

       

      The pack includes various combinations of camouflage and splinter patterns in air superiority blue, desert, arctic, woodland and one Su-34 fullback paint scheme based on a 2016 VFC-12 endeavor.
       
      Most markings have been westernized, and the pilots have been given USN/USMC flightsuits with Naval Aviator wings and squadron patches. The helmet remains Russian made.
       
      Be sure to download Volumes I and II:
      Volume I
      Volume II
       
       
       
      For Compact Installations - A Note About Autoexec.cfg:
       
      Rather than copying texture files to their respective livery folders, I prefer to use a series of common texture folders along with unique filenames. This allows a single instance of many of my common textures, and keeps the hard drive footprint to a minimum (especially nice if you run a SSD for your system drive).
       
      The installer will add a series of folders to the DCS Texture path; if you do not have these folders created, then it is no problem. The autoexec.cfg included will automatically point to the Texture folder in your Saved Games\DCS folder, and regardless of whether you run the Open Alpha, Open Beta, or Release version of DCS, the path will always point to your Saved Games\DCS\Texture folder. Again, this saves space on your hard drive.
       
      If you use your own Autoexec.cfg, then when prompted to overwrite you can click "no". This will create a file called autoexec.new, and you can manually make the updates as you like. Just don't modify the top line with the file date; this is used by the installer for version control. However, feel free to include it in your existing autoexec.cfg, so you don't get prompted to overwrite until there's another update to the autoexec.cfg.
       
      If you inadvertently overwrite your autoexec.cfg, it is actually backed up as autoexec.old. Just open it and copy the appropriate information to the new file.
       
      For Traditional Installations:
       
      If there is an issue with textures not displaying, it is likely a problem with the installer. Please let me know what textures are missing so that I can troubleshoot the issue.
       
       
       
      If you have any squadron requests, please PM me. If possible, provide top and profile views of the aircraft, preferably line art (much easier to extract color), and for CAG/CO birds, a close up of the tail fin is greatly appreciated.
       
      You are free to use any of these skins in other projects as long as proper credit is provided in the readme file.

      View File US Navy Attack Squadron 97 (VA-97) "Warhawks" Skin Pack
      VA-97 was commissioned in 1967 and flew the A-7 Corsair. In 1968, the squadron deployed to Vietnam as part of Carrier Air Wing 14 (CVW-14) embarked on the USS Constellation. VA-97 conducted a second combat deployment with CVW-14 in 1969, where they flew over 2500 sorties. VA-97 conducted two more Vietnam combat deployments in 1971 and 1972. The Warhawks returned to Vietnam for a fifth time in 1975 in support of Operation Frequent Wind, the evacuation of Saigon. In early 1980, VA-27 provided air cover for Operation Eagle Claw, the failed attempt at rescuing the American hostages in Iran.
      In January 1991, the Warhawks transitioned to the F/A-18 and were redesignated Strike Fighter Squadron 97 (VFA-97). Today the Warhawks fly the F/A-18E Super Hornet out of NAS Lemoore, CA, and they are slated to be the first fleet squadron to transition to the F-35.
      This is a fictional skin pack of Su-25Ts painted like the A-7E Corsair II in accordance with MIL-STD-2161A(AS) with VA-97 markings circa 1986. There are four different skins with unique Modexes (side numbers) and historically correct BuNos (serial numbers). This allows you to create packages of unique aircraft. Each skin has a "normal" version and a weathered version. Weathered skins have a bleached effect as if the aircraft were heavily exposed to the sun for months on end. Normal skins include pilots with green flightsuits, while weathered skins include pilots with desert flightsuits.
      Most markings have been westernized, and the pilots have been given US style flightsuits with US markings. The helmet remains Russian made (but with a black oxygen mask).
       
      Note: this skin pack uses an EXE installer that creates common texture folders and an autoexec.cfg (if you already have one, you can make manual changes). I would like your feedback on this system; if it works I intend to apply it to my other skin packs.
