Convair F-106 Delta Dart pack upgrade

F-106A Delta Dart

The Convair F-106 Delta Dart was the primary all-weather interceptor aircraft
of the United States Air Force from the 1960s through to the 1980s. Designed
as the so-called "Ultimate Interceptor", it proved to be the last dedicated
interceptor in U.S. Air Force service to date. It was gradually retired during
the 1980s.

F-106A Project Six Shooter 1972

In 1972 F-106As were upgraded in Project Six Shooter that involved fitting
the F-106 with a new canopy without metal bracing which greatly improved pilot
visibility. Also added was an optical gunsight, and provision for a single M61
Vulcan 20 mm cannon. The M61 Vulcan had 650 rounds of ammunition in the center
weapons bay and it replaced the AIM-26 Super Falcon or Genie.

QF-106A Drone Pacer Six

Between 1 June 1983 and 1 August 1988 the Delta Darts were incrementally retired
and sent to the Military Storage and Disposition Center in Arizona.When the need
for a high performance Full Scaled Aerial Target Drone was required the USAF began
withdrawing Delta Darts from storage. Starting in 1986, 194 (F-106A and B) of the
surviving surplus aircraft were converted into target drones and these were
designated QF-106As and used for target practice vehicles under the Pacer Six Program
by the Aerial Targets Squadron. The last was destroyed in January 1998.The drones
were still capable of being flown as manned aircraft, such as for ferrying to a test;
during the test they were flown unmanned.The QF-106 replaced the QF-100 Super Sabre
drone; the last shoot down of a QF-106 (57-2524) took place at Holloman AFB on 20
February 1997 after which the QF-106 was superseded by the QF-4S and QF-4E Phantom II

The mod is great but I have one issue.

For some reason when I fire the Infrared falcons, the trapeze is animated, but when I fire the radar guided ones, it just clips through the hull.

Any way I can fix this?

It's a LOD issue (ie 3D model). The Weapon Bay has just one animation slot and you can assign one animation to just ONE weapon station... So the first one works, the second one do not.

It's a game engine limitation.
