Hey Gents,

 

I have an F-8 FN DLC Enhancement pack ready to upload.

 

Inside the pack there is the F-8P too, with new Denis Olveira 3D parts added ....

 

What I'ld need are some data/cockpit/avionics.inis tweakings to portrait this later model, anyone interested ? :biggrin:

Hello, very good project! You could add the Sherloc RWR system! I don't know the specifications, however I found this pic! What is your SF2 pit choice?

The renovated F-8E(FN) was designated F-8P for prolongé (extended

life). It was more of an overhaul than a modernization, although some

modern equipment was fitted. The entire electrical and hydraulic system was

replaced, and the structure was inspected for fatigue and reinforced. A

Martin-Baker Mk 7 zero-zero ejection seat replaced the older zero-120

model. The radar and flight control systems were reconditioned.

 

Only the avionics were really modernized. A VOR/ILS system was fitted,

as well as an IFF, a GPS, a TACAN, a radar altimeter and a Thompson-

CSF Sherloc radar warning receiver. The RWR was fitted in a rectangular

fitting on the aircraft's fin, which distinguishes the F-8P from its

predecessor. The cockpit layout was also changed and a new inertial

navigation system, similar to that of the Mirage F.1, was installed.

 

Despite the overhaul, the “Crouze” (as it was called by the French) was

obsolete: it was not adapted to modern warfare environments and

maintenance was increasingly difficult and heavy. The Crusader production

lines had been stopped a long time ago and the French Navy depended on

the Davis-Monthan AFB boneyard in Arizona for spares, when it didn't have

to manufacture them itself.

 

That's what I found.

 

Thanks Coupi I'll test the RWR.

 

No ECM on board? It seems not.
