F-2H Banshee (Razbam) Updated data pack


F-2H Banshee Updated data pack v1.1

This is a further update of the DATA.inis of the RAZBAM F-2H 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/15417-sf2-f2h-4-banshee-tweeks-pak-for-razbam-banshees/

Credis should go to

- RAZBAM for the original release

- Wrench for making this really usable in missions/campaings

- Ravenclaw_007 for the AN-M30 bomb

- Spillone for - at least - some of the sounds


Thoughts for further upgrades

- The AltitudeTableNumData & DryMachTableNumData are really very limited and are restricting realism. Please give me help to correct them. DONE

- 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.DONE

INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS

- Overwrite everything above v1.0. Place the banshee f2h4.LOD (which you can purchase from the RAZBAM website) in your F-2H3 folder.


What's new in v1.1

- The Destroyed Model now it's the stock F-84F one.

- The F3H-3 (F-2C) now uses the F3H-4 LOD. Indeed, the -3 also used more the wing tip tanks than not, since they had a minimal effect on overall performance.

- Further updated engine data.

- Corrected ground clearence for the F3H-2.

- Corrected loadouts. Now the wing pylon can be loaded with bombs (historical).

- Small touches here & there for better overall result.

Issues

- The -4 used a different radar than the -3 model that had also a different radar screen with different symbology (not a successful one, as it often mentioned).
However, it seems that we have the -3 style radar screen for the - 4 model too.

- In some sources it's stated that the -4 had 20% more range than the -3 model. I am not convinced for that.
Most likely it had to do with the need for full throttle/max power more often than the -4 model
in combat conditions, something which indeed reduced endurance. Therefore I kept the same radius for the -3 & -4 models.

- The Canadians seldom used their wing tip tanks. I had a hard time to spot canadian F-2s with wing tip tanks when in actual service.
The most likely explanation is that with the small canadian aircraft was too much to handle the take off of the approx. extra 1 ton of weight with the wingtips on the weak -3 model.
If someone wants a tank-less RCN F-2, I can update the pack. However the final solution will be to add the tanks as loadouts.

      A Note from Menrva
      I started this project back in May of 2020. When I invited some of the most renowned modders to contribute to it, I would have never expected such an amazing support from many of them. After roughly 8 months of development, we have produced a high-quality total conversion for Strike Fighters 2, all for free. Driven by passion and teamwork, we managed to achieve new heights and set new standards; this modification is most likely the most complete ever anthology of the Gulf War in any flight sim to date. 2020 has been a difficult year for so many all over the world due to an unprecedented pandemic. It has been a very difficult year for me as well, unrelated to the pandemic. I am extremely proud of what I started, but without the support of the team I managed to form, I would have never accomplished this amazing modding project with success.
      I want to dedicate this to my beloved girlfriend, Alessandra. With her love and support, I have come to realize my potential and value as a human being. Così adesso lo sai...

      Trying to Razbam's Banshee off of White Boy Samurai's CV14 carrier.  But the landing gear doesn't work right. Front wheel breaks off and wing gear won't retract. Is there a reason or fix for this? Thanks.

      I found this manual on eBay, never had seen anything like before or since.
      It's a short document but helpful if you are making historically-accurate torpedo attacks in your favorite simulator.
