Dear all,

I've been looking throughout all download sections and I could not find the ALQ-164 jamming pod used by Italian Naval aviation on Av-8 Plus Harriers.

Although I am able to "play" on the *.ini files to modify one existing model...t I am not able to create a new model from zero.

 

Wondering if somebody can assist me creating this Jamming Pod.

 

Thanks!

One thing i have learned during my Strike Fighters time is:

If you want a good mod, you need to have very good references.

References are detailed pictures and 1st of all blueprints & 3views with measures / dimensions. ;-)

Will try, but is a modelling forum, not sure they have such info's.

 

Anyway that will be my last try, if Pod can't be done, can't be done, period.

Hi, Regret, but I could not find any other details...just forget it,

 

I have the dimensions: 85" Long Diameter 16", weight 350 lb, two trapezoidal "winglets" on the side. It includes the jamming pod AN/ALQ-126B and AN/ALQ-162.  Can't get anymore info...I wrote to a former USMC Harrier IT technician and he could only give me the L x d and weight, all the rest is on internet.

 

Seems we're dealing with a mistery pod!  :biggrin:  

 

Never mind...thanks for help anyway!

Hi,

 

So I found more info's and shortly somebody is going to send me the 3views with all dimensions:

 

Practically the ALQ-164 is the "Outside Shell", it contains the element Sanders ALQ-126B Charger Blue which provides protection against pulse radars with conic scan from 1 to 10 GHz, from band D to J. Power is over 1 Kw. Main techniques are RGPO, mainlobe blanking, SSW, inverse con-scan (IG). The second element ALQ-162 Compass Sail/Clokwise jams the CW radar (continuos wave) on the bands H (6 - 8 GHz) and J (10 - 20 GHz). 

 

Hope this helps, shortly I will send also the 3-view

 

Thanks

Dear All,

 

As requested I managed to find out all information required to create the mentioned pod. Here below the 3-way plan (measures in cm):

And below the technical info:

 

ALQ-164 is the "Outside Shell", it contains the element Sanders ALQ-126B Charger Blue which provides protection against pulse radars with conic scan from 1 to 10 GHz, from band D to J. Power is over 1 Kw. Main techniques are RGPO, mainlobe blanking, SSW, inverse con-scan (IG). The second element ALQ-162 Compass Sail/Clokwise jams the CW radar (continuos wave) on the bands H (6 - 8 GHz) and J (10 - 20 GHz). 

 

Please let me know if by any chances I can get the model done.

 

Thanks!

Guys, any news?

 

Can't believe you made me ask half of the world to get these information and now that I got them, you're ignoring them?

Hey, hold on, real life is real life. Life is not only modding my friend.

Well...I would've appreciated at least somebody saying..."Ok thanks, I am working on it", just not to feel ignored.

 

I will be waiting humbly and silent...and anyway, I know what real life it!

Can you work Gimp? It is free, and a good way to startgoing from "guys could you...." to "hey check this out. It does appear the model is done just needing a UV map

I'd say it looks pretty good. How does it compare the photos of the real one?
