Mirage III & Nesher Gun Sight Fix.


Mirage III and Nesher Gun Sight Fix.

This mod corrects the Stock Third Wire Gun Sights for the Mirage IIICJ Shahak, Mirage IIICJ Shahak (71), Nesher and as a bonus the DLC 17 RAAF Mirage fighters.

I recently read the Osprey book Israeli 'Mirage and Nesher Aces' and 'Mirage III vs Mig-21 Six Day War 1967.' Both books are full of gun camera images of Israeli Mirage IIICJ and Nesher fighters killing MIGs.

From these I realised Third Wire has made an error on all the Mirage gun sights by aligning the (horizontally elongated) aircraft reference cross with the gun bore-sight and thus the gun piper. In the Nesher and Mirage IIIO that leaves the actual gun bore-sight cross sitting above the gun piper doing nothing.

This mod corrects the position and alignment of the aircraft reference cross, gun piper and gun bore-sight cross (Nesher and Mirage IIIO).

This correction should be applied to any other version of Mirage III, Mirage 5, Nesher or Dagger you have that uses a Third Wire Mirage cockpit and/ or Mirage gun sight.

CombatAce fair use agreement applies.

Cheers,

Dan.

Do you have a modified AVIONICS.ini file for the aircraft? The symbols on my cockpit HUD are TINY! :blind:

No but it sounds like you haven't put the cockpit folder with the modified .tga files in the right place

      View File Mirage F-1EQ4
      Mirage F-1EQ4 v1.0
      This mod is dedicated to BPAO, nothing would have been possible without him.
      During the late 1970s, Iraq placed an order for a variant of the Mirage F1, designated as the Mirage F1EQ, which were specially modified for extended range to perform strike missions. The EQ4 has the same capabilities like the EQ2 with the addition of In-Flight Refueling, buddy-pod tanker, large RPL201 2.200 L external fuel tank and the Harold reconnaissance pod.
      The cockpit is the EQ2 one, it doesn't have the correct EQ4 radar display.
      Covered unit :
      91st Squadron
      Installation :
      - Copy and paste the Objects folder in your mod folder.
      Crédits :
      - Aircraft : Flying Toaster, BPAO and Centurion-1.
      - Cockpit : Brain32, Centurion-1 and Crusader.
      - Skins : Ludo.m54.
      - Decals : Ludo.m54.
      - Templates : Brain32, ACE888, Coupi and Ludo.m54.
      - Avionics and data tweaks : Crusader.
      - FM : Baffmeister.
      - Interception light : Coupi
      - Weapons : Ravenclaw_007 and Denissoliveira
      - Hangars et loading screens : Coupi.
      A big thank to all on Combatace and C6 forums that helped us solving issues we encountered.
      Any omission in credits is totally unwanted, if I forgot somebody, let me know, I will correct this.
      This addon is and will in all cases remain freeware.
      Released under CombatAce Fair-Use terms.
      Enjoy
