Aalternate data GK-M163-VADS_Data.rar  for M163 VADS.  Reduced range of effective fire and added capability to target and attack AIR_AND_GROUND. Effective range is somewhere between real range against air and ground targets. and some minor adjustments....

Looks like I have changed the name of ini file (compared to the original GKABS one) - just to make modding more complicated.

M163 PIVADS  is designated somewhere from 1984..when Product Improvement program was introduced. Before it was officially M163 VADS. And in Vietnam was mainly used to support ground units. 

By the way, google.books have a 1976 manual if someone is interested.

It doesn't matter to me actually, but the USS Pegasus looks interesting.

can hydrofoils actually be modeled??? Meaning, as it speeds up, "deploying" the foils, and riding them with the hull out of the water????? (just thinking out loud)

I don't know but It's worth trying.:wink:

hmm.... deploy at "X" speed. could the animation be that of raising the hull, and having the foils stay on the surface??? or raising the entire ship so the foils are exposed??? :dntknw: Sort of like "automatic aerodynamic load" for slats and such

or maybe a low speed, low altitude aircraft, with the hydrofoils as a fixed landing gear. make the max speed 2-3 knots over takeoff speed and in theory you dont have a gunboat cruising at 5000 ft agl

but keeping it from flying away could be tricky, and it would jack up use of the guns  for surface engagement iirc

still, its a thought

Wrench, and daddyairplanes? thank you for your feedback I will consider your suggestions when I start modeling the Pegasus, but first I need to decide whether to make the Combattante I or the Pegasus.

The more the merrier I say, I'd be interested for a target at least.

Have you ever thought of doing the A variant of the much vaunted SA-8 'Gecko' vehicle? There only seems to be the B model available for SF2.

I made a new one some time ago together with late vehicles (SA-8B). The thing is we used only the late one in ODS30, so early (A) somehow stayed untouched on a drive.  When time allows I  will put together SA-8 pack and upload it.

Okay, I will start making the BM-30 Smerch first as I don't think it will be so much of a hassle as I have some of the parts made from other Russin models.  This is what I have currently, if anyone finds a clear one please can you share it with me.

Thanks.

      Speaking to Breaking Defense, Ali Al Hashim, a Kuwait-based defense analyst has said that the US Marine Corps (USMC) is interested in taking over kuwaiti F/A-18s when they are retired from service (the country is currently fielding 27 legacy F-18 Hornets, plus six F-18D trainers).

      Malaysia and Tunisia are said to be interested in acquiring those legacy Hornets, however, the USMC will have priority as approval is required from the US government before Kuwait can sell the jets to other nations.

      “Kuwait cannot sell the legacy Hornets to another country without the prior approval of the US Navy,” said Hashim. “There are reports that the US Marines command appears to be interested in acquiring the Kuwait fleet of Hornets, and negotiations were underway between the two sides.”

      According to Alert5, the USMC is planning to retire its F/A-18s in 2030 and has given its existing F/A-18 fleet some upgrades such as a new AN/APG-79(v)4 radar and ejection seats.

      The Kuwait Air Force received the first two of 28 Typhoon jet fighters being built by Leonardo were last December, while the 28 F/A-18E/F Super Hornet block 3 were reportedly delivered last September by Boeing to the US Navy. Kuwaiti pilots training on the Typhoons will start flying the fighters to Kuwait during this year and well into the next one.

      Hashim explained that transferring the Super Hornets to Kuwait will take longer than planned due to the delayed infrastructure work at Ahmed Al Jaber Air Base because of the pandemic.

      According to Abdullah Al Foudary, the former Kuwait Air Force commander, selecting the Super Hornet to replace the Hornets was a “natural and logical move.” Instead he said that the additional selection of the Typhoon came in line with a policy to “unify the platforms with other members of the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC),” an alliance of Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates, Kuwait, Qatar, Bahrain, and Oman.

      "Saudi Arabia and Oman had procured the Eurofighter Typhoon and Qatar was considering it and recently proceeded with the purchase,” Al Foudary pointed out. “The idea here is that GCC air forces would be easily interoperable and will also be able to support one another with spare parts if they all purchased the same platforms.”
