What is the difference between a ship and its static twin on a map/terrain? I noticed the static ones have the same weapons. Thanks

Static ships are declared in the types and targets.ini of each Terrain:

So, is mandatory to declare them in both files, in order to appear as targets ? I know how to put them in Types file but I don't know to put them in targets file, I don't know to write the exact coordinates for them.

One more problem if you please: I downloaded a static aircraft but it has no data.ini file, it has just the ini file, the LOD and  the bitmaps for it. I never saw it in game. Does it need a data.ini file manadatory ?

Yes, to have them as a terrain target, they must be declared in the Types and Target files.

To add them to a target, use this:

The static aircraft you mentioned:

All files go in the terrain folder, no need for a data.ini, if this is so. The declaration in the Types file will be slightly different, for example:

[TargetType251]
Name=Wessex-Static
FullName=Parked Helicopter
ModelName=Wessex-Static.LOD
TargetType=MISC
ActiveYear=0
TargetValue=20
UseGroundObject=FALSE
DamagePoint=0.1
ArmorValue=0.0
ArmorType=0
RepairRate=10.0
StartDetectChance=100
StartIdentifiedChance=0
IncreaseDetectChanceKey=0
MaxVisibleDist=5000.0
DamagedModel=Wessex-Damaged.LOD
DestroyedEffect=SmallExplosionEffect
DestroyedModel=Wessex-Damaged.LOD
SecondaryChance=100
SecondaryEffect=VehicleFireEffect
CollisionMesh=
ZBufferOffset=
FlatObject=
