I started to mess with this old model some time ago when I was working on Israeli Peten. Just to make "balance of the CAS force" in my Over Israel mod.

But...i did not finish it.
Since I can't do everything at the same time I left it behind. But maybe it is time to bring it back. There is no new gazelle coming, and this one is not so bad.  So far.

So as for interim gazelle (model before any new will come) - maybe it is worth to put little work.

I made 'fake pilot' HOT sight and air intake filter. And new HOT launchers to represent SA342-L.

Moded also flight model, so far now it can fly nicely. Small bee.

 

I am looking for volunteers to bring it to Middle East skies. Skins are nice but in my opinion needs more proper colors.

Decals - need for proper arabian markings. As much as possible markings of real squadrons for countries that used Gazelle. Syria, Egypt.

Let me know if someone is interested.

 

Edit:

 

for reference.

Give me a bit to see how many users. Still have a few other projects on plate plus RL.Would be good for ODS as well as Europe. Might wanna look into ability to fit SNEB pods for RAF in tge Falklands.

 

For arabic, i think those are numbers. Should be in SF2I iirc

I (and JAT) still have the 3d max files of the TMF Gazelles

Dont know how much and what JAT has done with them

 

If you want to make a proper model without the fake method, let me know

So far small update.

As for Syrian gazelle I found few numbers.

Didn't check others yet.

 

I've added few slow/fast rotors, checking which one looks good (those on screens - not much)

Added pylons for HOT. And diferent  for rocket pods. But looks like Matra pods are little too big for it ?

Also new HOT missiles and tube launchers. So caps are removed after launch.

Some few changes into old model to keep mapping.

Hot sight added and alive.

The old TMF model are basically sound and accurate though they may sometimes need "smoothing", because we can afford more polies now than 10 years ago

Gazelle model is quite good. Not much to fix there.  Just added some bits here and there. And new pylons for HOT and RPs.

Upgraded skins. With few old pieces of old skins, mostly everything is new. uvmaping changed only in few parts.

For now only 3 countries, Middle East  users of high-skid, dust friendly Gaz.

Ive made templates in gimp, so its possible to made more skins. Only if someone will.

 

Do we have some nice HOT -1 and AS.11/AS.12  misiles somewhere to download.

 

"Evil" Gazelles.

My bad you're right I found an other SS.11 / AS.11 & models in the old Lindr SFP1 weapon pack but this one seems to be better.

If I find valuable informations perhaps Ravenclaw will add the AS.11 / SS.11 family to his weapon pack 3

For the Gazelle I can make the French Buzz numbers decals + the specific Hangar, Loading and Loadout screens for you if needed

Indeed It is needed.

Thanks. I will pm you later about my visions.

As for the weapons. AS.11 could be great but also new HOT-1,2,3  is needed.

When Armee de Terre started to use 3color camouflage on Gaz ? In Iraq 1991 it was stil green scheme (or overpainted green)

I will complete all the necessary search for this point + decals ASAP

I have already add the ALAT " Aviation Légére de l'Arméee de Terre" entry to my NATION.INI as new nation+ updated my SQUADRON.INI accordingly with all the ALAT units (old and modern)

Got this problem.

 

When on airfield before take off or after landing, Gazz is on skids. And its fine.

post-85812-0-88011100-1441830077_thumb.jpg

 

But randomly parked aircraft that apear at time to time on airfield is ...submerging.

post-85812-0-56242200-1441830205_thumb.jpg

 

Got this before on other aircrafts.  But I have no ideas now.

I got "one last fix" for this but its last and must be done in max. Any option in ini ?

 

And added 4 diferent rotors. - idle, slow, fast and parking.

 

meanwhile.

it's a world center thing, I think... lots of aircraft exhibit that when they show up on the "random generated parking" on airfield. I wouldn't worry about it.
