Third Wire MiG-23MLD update & flyable for SF2


Third Wire MiG-23MLD update & flyable for SF2

-    Made flyable with the MLD cockpit and avionics available here at CA by Stary 
-    Leading edge flaps fixed to now automatically deploy during manoeuvring as they did on the MLD with the type 3 wing.
-    Radar data and performance is corrected from the S-23MLA radar to the S-23MLA-II radar as fitted in the MLD.
-    KDS-23 countermeasure dispenser installed in the centreline drop tank pylon. This is a 12 shot chaff/ flare countermeasure dispenser that could be used once the drop tank had been jettisoned.
-    Ejection seat (from ODS mod) and more suitable pilot added.
-    Canopy can be opened and closed.
-    Primary and secondary roles expanded to reflect the evolution of the MLD version of the MiG-23 into a more multi role fighter platform.
-    Loadouts enhanced and corrected. Some Afghanistan specific ones added.
-    Used of Kh-25M air-to-surface missile and datalink pod added.
-    Fuselage AA-8 positions corrected.
-    Removed ECM jammer.
-    Updated weapons from the RSSW 099 mod.
-    Various Soviet- Afghan war skins added.

Great addition! Are you planning to do anything similar for the other MiG-23s? The cockpit by Stary should be good for most M versions.

      View File [Fictional] Republic F-7C Thunderstorm
      Republic F-7C Thunderstorm for STRIKE FIGHTERS 2 
      This is a very simple mod of the stock MiG-23ML/P to give a fictional Republic F-7C Thunderstorm in service with the 428th and 429th Tactical Fighter Squadrons in the Vietnam SEA style skin with 'Combat Lancer' rudder flashes. 
      The USAF SEA style scheme is a lucky find as it's one of the stock Czech camo schemes! Thanks TK!

      BACKSTORY
      During late 1958 the Langley Laboratory made the breakthrough that led to the realisation of a valid variable-sweep wing and by early 1959 Tactical Air Command (TAC) could see that this massive technological breakthrough could be the key to help them in their search for a tactical strike fighter to replace both the F-100 Super Sabre and the F-105 Thunderchief. Pretty soon however the numerical values for unrefuelled range and payload that TAC had attached to their mission requirements had the effect of turning all the paper studies from F-105 sized machines to much larger tactical bombers with a corresponding increase in cost and price and this reduced affordability was of great concern to TAC.
      In the Autumn of 1959 TAC wisely decided to split their requirement into a smaller tactical fighter to replace the F-100 and a larger tactical bomber to replace the F-105, B-57 and B-66. The larger aircraft would evolve into Specific Operational Requirement No.183 that would launch the important TFX (tactical fighter experimental) programme and eventually lead (via a tortuous route) to the outstanding but highly compromised F-111 family whilst the smaller aircraft would lead to Specific Operational Requirement No.182 or TAX (tactical aircraft experimental).
      Issued in March 1960 SOR182 called for a single-seat tactical fighter aircraft with “reduced dependence of paved runways” and with “the ability to carry a nuclear bomb at supersonic speed at tree-top height”. Requests for Proposals were immediately sent out to industry and Republic Aviation’s proposal soon gained the support of TAC by virtue of its use of a variable-sweep wing but also by the use of the existing J75 turbojet and F-105 avionics. With the end of F-105 production on the horizon Republic Aviation pushed hard for SOR182/TAX and in February 1961 they were rewarded with a contract for 24 prototype and pre-production YF-110 aircraft and 400 production F-110A machines and Republic wasted no time in bestowing the name of ‘Thunderstorm’ to the latest of their long line of fighter aircraft.

      Republic Aviation were fortunate in being awarded the contract before Secretary of Defence Robert S. McNamara had got into his stride and the programme largely escaped McNamara and his whiz-kids. Development moved swiftly and during 1962 the programme was re-designated F-7 under the new tri-service designation scheme and the first prototype took to the air on December 22nd 1962 a full year ahead of the F-111A. Entering service in June 1965 the F-7A was followed by the F-7B two-seat trainer version and the more advanced F-7C version that first deployed to Vietnam in March 1968 when a two-squadron wing transferred to Takhli Royal Thia AFB, Thailand in a deployment called ‘Combat Lancer’.

      INSTRUCTIONS
      1. From the AIRCRAFT folder drag and drop the F-7C folder into your Aircraft folder.
      2. From the DECALS folder drag and drop the F-7C folder into your Decals folder.
      That's it!

      Third Wire MiG-23 fighters made flyable & updated for SF2
       
      MiG-23M, MiG-23M (85), MiG-23MF, MiG-23ML, MiG-23MLA, MiG-23MLD, MiG-23MLD (Soviet-Afgan War), MiG-23MLDe, MiG-23P, MiG-23P (82), MiG-23MS
       
      This is a follow on from my "Third Wire MiG-23MLD updated & flyable for SF2" mod and completely supersedes it.
       
      - All are flyable with a modified version of Stary's MLD cockpit/ avionics with corrections by Crusader and myself. There are slightly different cockpits/ gunsights depending on the model of aircraft.
      - Wing spoilers are now working as they were always there just not activated. Thanks again Crusader!
      - Opening Canopy.
      - KM-1 Ejection seats added. Grey on most but black for Mig-23MLDe, MiG-23P and MiG-23P (82).
      - Loadouts enhanced and corrected. Some Afghanistan specific ones added.  Use of Kh-25M air-to-surface missile and datalink pod added.
      - Missile positions corrected, especially for the AA-8.
      - Single missile rail for the fuselage AA-8.
      - Improved/ corrected FM.
      - Improved engine sound and afterburner effect.
      - All Mig-23 have an ACM/ boresight radar mode but it is set straight ahead along the gunsight and does not move/ scan. The MLD and P (82) have an ACM/ boresight mode that scans vertically like the F-16 or F-15 etc.
      - MLD, MLDe and P (82) have KDS-23 countermeasure dispenser installed in the centreline drop tank pylon. This is a 12 shot chaff/ flare countermeasure dispenser that could be used once the drop tank had been jettisoned.
      - MLD Leading edge flaps automatically deploy during maneuvering as they did on the MLD with the type 3 wing.
      - MLD Primary and secondary roles expanded to reflect the evolution of the MLD into a more multi role fighter platform.
      - Removed ECM jammer from MLD.
      - Radar data and performance is corrected from the S-23MLA radar to the S-23MLA-II radar for the MLD.
      - Most if not all the exported and Warsaw pack ML aircraft were actually MLA models, this is an error in most publications, model kits and flight sims alike and has only been corrected in recent publications. The ML was operated by the Soviet airforce and by the time the export models were being built the production line had switched to the MLA. This is now corrected in the game.
       All skins updated with cockpit textures and various other minor details.
      - Grey undersides on Soviet Camouflage skins changed from grey to blue/ grey.  Additional dark green added in to the Soviet camouflage of later model MiG-23s. Lots of other texture corrections done.
      - Skins added for Iraqi, Syria (Late), Polish camouflage, Egypt, North Korea, Libya, Soviet desert (in Afghanistan) and Soviet Afghanistan veterans.
      - Corrections to decal size and/ or positions on various skins.
      - Additional MiG-23MLDe variant created. This is the Syrian and Libian specific export model of the MLD which did not have the IFF or aerodynamic enhancements (vortex generators) of the Soviet MLD and had a slightly downgraded radar. Syrian made countermeasure dispensers installed on either side of the tail fin.
      - Additional MiG-23P (82) variant created. This is the Soviet P model that was upgraded to the same standard as the MLD but without the aerodynamic enhancements.
      - Additional MiG-23M (85) variant created. This is a few squadrons of the Soviet M model that had its IFF upgraded some time between 1978 and the early 90's (Same nose IFF antenna as the MLD and P (82).
      - Additional MiG-23MLD (Soviet-Afgan War) variant created. This is the Soviet MLD but reflects the specific loadouts, modifications, countermeasures and markings of the MLD models that served in the Soviet Afgan war.
      - Updated weapons from the RSSW 099 mod.
