So I was wondering...

Recommended Posts


Simple answer ... they are always on correct side.

But seriously it is not question of regulations , but more tradition.

After World War I, most airplanes had rotary engines with left turning tendencies because it followed the torque of the engine. Therefore, turning left was easier than turning right. Because of this, pilots considered left turns as more convenient maneuver, and thus more experienced pilot started sitting on the left.

So .. same as US.

Not certainly in that way. Yes, you are right, this is not question of regulations , but more tradition.

But this tradition has nothing to do with engine type or torque. It was just that during takeoff, landing or taxiing, the large nose of the aircraft blocked the pilot's forward view. The pilot had to look out of the cockpit. The British decided that it was more convenient to look out from the left. Later, young pilots were taught this way, and very soon it became a habit and became the norm. Also the instructor stand on the left wing when teaching taxiing.

      -------------------------------------------------------------
      This mod was intended as an update to FastCargo's Super Vark Package (See link below), but it can be a standalone mod if you just want the USAF F-111s included in this pack. If you want to install both packs, FastCargo's pack must be installed first as that is the older pack.
      You can get FastCargo's pack here...

      -------------------------------------------------------------
      I recommend that you back up your mod folder (or just the Effects, \Objects\Aircraft\F-111F, and \Objects\Decals\F-111F folders). I just make a copy the mod folder, try the mod, if I like it, I delete the backup. If I don't, I delete the new/updated mod folder and rename the old backup/copy back to the original names to reset to my original setup.
      * To install, simply unzip and copy the contents of the "To_Mod_Folder" folder (the uncompressed "Effects and Objects" folders only) to your StrikeFighter2 mod folder and Overwrite.
      My StrikeFighter2 mod on Win97 64-bit was..(yours may be different)...
      C:\Users\<your_id>\Saved Games\Thirdwire\StrikeFighter2 Europe\
      Note: You should be able to install this mod into any SF2 series, it doesn't have to be StrikeFighter2 Europe.
      * To remove, simply delete the active "Effects and Objects" folders and replace with the back up copies you made prior to the install.
      -------------------------------------------------------------
      Add F111 SoundList
      -------------------------------------------------------------
      Lastly, Read the "Add F111 SoundList.txt" readme file on updating your your "Flight\SoundList.ini" file with the custiom F-111 sound files included in this pack.
