AV-8B Plus Harrier II (Marina Militare)


AV-8B Plus Harrier Marina Militare

This is the AV-8B Plus Harrier in service with the Italian navy. 

Basic modding skills are required to run this mod.  (copy/paste, mod folder structure etc.) A fake pilot is needed to run this mod. 

It is designed for and works only in SF2 series.

 

Skin is in 4096x4096 format. So you can easily resize down.  If you have problems running this in game. Resize skins to lower resolutions

All serials are correct for the Italian version of Harrier II. 

Animations:

1= canopy open - close

4= refueling probe - beware of a speed limit

3= night vision mode - not really helping but it is there - inside and outside animation.

************************************************************************************

You can exlplore ini files for some additional features like in cockpit "FLIR" feed on HUD .

AAQ-28 can be loaded only on station number 5 and centerline

AIM-120 can be loaded only on stations 2 and 6.

ECM also activates RWR on digital display indicator - even if ECM pod is not loaded.

If you have yakarov79´s AV-8B Harrier already  - some files are same so simply overwrite. 

for proper sound work you should add these lines into soundlist.ini

 

SoundFileXXX=USMComm_1
SoundFileXXX=Equalizer

[Equalizer]
Priority=NORMAL
Looped=TRUE
NumBuffers=2
3DSound=TRUE
DopplerEffect=FALSE
MaxDist=1000.000000
MinDist=100.000000

A "small" edit to work with Garibaldi CV and Italian Navy task forces.

Edit the AV-8B data.ini like this:

[MissionData]
NationName=ItalianNavy
ServiceStartYear=1993
ServiceEndYear=2030
AircraftRole=ATTACK
AircraftCapability=DAY_ONLY
Availability=VERY_COMMON
Exported=FALSE
PrimaryRoles=CAS,STRIKE,SEAD,ARMED_RECON,
SecondaryRoles=FAC,ANTI_SHIP,
NormalMissionRadius=370
MaxMissionRadius=670
Ceiling=27209
MinBaseSize=SMALL <---------------------------------------------------
CarrierBased=TRUE
CarrierParkSpan=2.0
CarrierParkAnimationID=2

Now with great Angelp's ships you will have italian task forces in Libia terrain when using this plane.

:ok:

      View File Caporetto V2 (Terrain & Campaign)
      Caporetto Terrain WW1 V2.0
      *******************************
      INTRODUCTION
      The Italian Front during WW1 refers to a series of battles fought between 1915 and 1918 in northern Italy between the armies of Austria-Hungary and Germany against Italy.
      Italy hoped that by joining the countries of the Triple Entente against the Central Powers it would gain Cisalpine Tyrol (today's provinces of Trentino and South Tyrol), the Austrian Littoral, northern Dalmatia and some areas of western Carniola.
      Italy had hoped to begin the war with a surprise offensive intended to move quickly and capture several Austrian cities.
      Well, the war soon bogged down into trench warfare similar to the Western Front fought in France.
      The included terrain represents the situation around September/October 1917, just before the battle of Caporetto.
      The Battle of Caporetto (also known as the Twelfth Battle of the Isonzo, the Battle of Kobarid or the Battle of Karfreit) was the greatest defeat in Italian military history. The battle was fought between the Entente and the Central Powers and took place from 24 October to 19 November 1917, near the town of Kobarid (now in north-western Slovenia, then part of the Austrian Littoral). The battle was named after the Italian name of the town (also known as Karfreit in German).
      Austro-Hungarian forces, reinforced by German units, were able to break into the Italian front line and rout the Italian forces opposing them. The battle was a demonstration of the effectiveness of the use of stormtroopers and the infiltration tactics developed in part by Oskar von Hutier. The use of poison gas by the Germans also played a key role in the collapse of the Italian Second Army.

      2. TERRAIN INSTALLATION
      2.1 FIRST EAGLES 2
      - This terrain uses the stock wwiCambrai.CAT file, You must have the "wwiCambrai" terrain from First Eagles for the wwiCaporetto terrain to work properly.
      - Look into your personal Windows folder like 'C:\Users\<username>\Saved Games\ThirdWire\FirstEagles2', e.g. your MODS Folder - create the folder 'terrains' within if not already there
      - Move the 'wwiCaporetto' directory from your temporary folder (like 'c:\temp\caporettoV20\Terrain\wwiCaporetto') to 'C:\Users\<username>\Saved Games\ThirdWire\FirstEagles2\terrains\', e.g. your MODS Folder
      - Move the folders within 'GroundObject' directory from your temporary folder (like 'c:\temp\caporettoV20\Objects\GroundObject') to 'C:\Users\<username>\Saved Games\ThirdWire\FirstEagles2\Objects\GroundObjects', e.g. your MODS Folder

      3. CAMPAIGN INSTALLATION
      3.1 FIRST EAGLES 2
      - Look into your personal Windows folder like 'C:\Users\<username>\Saved Games\ThirdWire\FirstEagles2', e.g. your MODS folder - create the folder 'Campaigns' within if not already there

      Description:
      Terrain_wwiCaporettoFolder_oldCarst.zip
      - I've repainted the carst region tiles to make them look more like limestone in this new version. If you like more the previous look, then just extract this file and overwrite the tiles within the wwiCaporetto folder.
      Terrain_wwiCaporettoFolder_oldIsonzo_trench_dry.zip
      - I've added wet fields and water filled shell holes in this new version. If you like more the previous look, then just extract this file and overwrite the tiles within the wwiCaporetto folder.

      - If you like a bit more exciting musing in the main menue. Just drop this file into your 'Menue' folder.
      PilotDataFolder_Additional_PilotImages.zip
      - These are all the portraits of all aces on the Italian front during 1915-1918. Quite a lot of work went into this. If you like a more historical approach then use these and drop them into your 'PilotData' folder.
