MiG-17F "Fresco-C"


The Mikoyan-Gurevich MiG-17F (NATO reporting name: "Fresco-C") is a high-subsonic fighter aircraft produced in the USSR from 1952 and operated by numerous air forces in many variants. It is an advanced development of the very similar appearing MiG-15 of the Korean War.

The MiG-17 first saw combat in 1958 over the Straits of Taiwan and was used as an effective threat against supersonic fighters of the United States in the Vietnam War. It was also briefly known as the "Type 38", by U.S. Air Force designation prior to the development of NATO codes.

Fantastic!!! A real time consuming work. The pack is "almost" complete. Some skins are missing:

- Venusian Frescos

- Atlantis versions

- Vulcano ones.

I´m still waiting for them! :biggrin:

Cannot get the skins to show up on aircraft.  The only thing showing up in loadout is the patch and the skin name.  After game loads, aircraft has the Polish camo, not the Soviet Green 1.skin.  Any suggestions, everything looks to be installed correctly.

It seems You can haven't overwrited Mig17F.ini file and You're using a previous (yours) protected (only reading) one, Please take a try use that You have in the pack or right click on it and check out only reading (I don't know the exact words as I use an italian win 7) option.

Be sure to have patched your SF-2 (which one you use?) as the last skins are in JPG format.

Very beautiful mod! Many thanks Paulo!!! 

 

... I hope Thirdwire will modify the windscreen of the Fresco. I think about its very good TW MiG-15.

 

Best regards,
