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 [Fictional] Dassault Mirage 5FM 'Morocco'
      Dassault Mirage 5FM for STRIKE FIGHTERS 2
      This is a very simple mod of the stock Dassault Mirage 5F to give a fictional export version for the Royal Moroccan Air Force (Force Aérienne Royale Marocaine) in a Desert camo scheme with markings for Escadre de Chasse "Tigre".

      BACKSTORY
      The Mirage 5 was developed from a request made by the Israeli Air Force in 1964 for a simpler 'clear weather' version of the Mirage 3E tailored mainly for the ground-attack role with avionics reduced and repositioned, more fuel for attack missions and two additional ventral stores pylons located towards the rear fuselage. In September 1966 Israel became the launch customer for this important new line of the Mirage family when they placed an order for 50 Mirage 5J's. However, rising tensions between Israel and their neighbouring Arab states during the early summer of 1967 allied to General de Gaulle's increasingly pro-Arab stance led to a French arms embargo to Israel announced on June 3rd, 1967 just two days before the Six-Day war despite Israel having paid for the aircraft in full. 
      By this time, the prototype Mirage 5 had flown and production was in full swing with the now embargoed Mirage 5J's beginning to stockpile at Bordeaux-Mérignac. But following the Mirage's dazzling combat record in the hands of Israeli pilots during the Six-Day war the air forces of many nations knocked on Dassault's door and one such nation was Morocco (formerly a French protectorate) who wanted the Mirage 5J's to supplement their recently acquired but decidedly lukewarm Northrop F-5A's. General de Gaulle readily agreed to this sale and Dassault made some minor modifications to the 5J's to export them as Mirage 5FM's to the Royal Moroccan Air Force in late 1968 with initial deliveries going to Escadre de Chasse "Tigre" based at Meknes, Northern Morocco.

      INSTRUCTIONS
      1. From the AIRCRAFT folder drag and drop the Mirage5FM folder into your Aircraft folder.
      2. From the DECALS folder drag and drop the Mirage5FM folder into your Decals folder.
      That's it!

      As always, thanks to Third Wire for a great little game/sim.
      And, finally, thanks to everyone in the wider Third Wire community.

      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.
