Thanks to guuruu for testing my Fragata Niteroi F-40 Frigate and for fixing the Exocet-40MMB2 missile data.  I have updated all the models with the new update.

Thank you @guuruu for the fix :friends:

Thanks, Stratos, yes I really enjoyed it, I have been locked in Kuwait for almost 2 years.  It was nice to change the scenery from just going back and forth between home and work. :friends:

I worked today for about 6 hours, therefore, I think it's coming along nicely. I still need more work and tweaking to get it completed.

That external tanks, not used in combat. 

Yes, you are correct, but they can be dropped before engaging the enemies, and that is the Russian tactics if I am not mistaken.  also, I made them for the static model. :)

What I'm trying to explain to you, nowhere in the war in the former Yugoslavia, I've never seen an M-84 or a T-55 in action with those tanks. The reason is simple, they are not armored and that is why they easily catch fire, that is, they explode.

I totally agree with you.:friends: I was just referring to the Russian doctrine for tank battle. :wink:

About 80% completed, I  need to add some more details, then the UVW and making the texture. Big thanks to @Nightshade/PR for helping with searching for more information for the tank.

This has been an interesting search........

Here's link to a 3-D model (Yugoslav) without all the modernization's. Finding a blueprint of the Kuwaiti version has proved quite challenging.

Worked for about 10 hours to get the UVW completed, next I need to work on the textures I will make 4 skins. Two for the Kuwait army before and during the Gulf War, and the second after the liberation and the other two will be green and the other one tan.

      View File Crotale SAM system
          
          CROTALE mod by GKABS

          1) Historical background

         The Development of the Crotale Surface-to-Air Missile system began in 1964.
         The Crotale is a very short range SAM system (Sol-Air à Très Courte Portée or SATCP).
         It was said that South Africa paid 85% (France: 15%) of the first step development 
         costs of this SAM System. The Crotale was named "Cactus" for South Africa.
         Thomson-CSF for the radar and the electronics, and Matra (Engine division) for the 
         R440 missile were the two prime contractors.
         South Africa received the first systems in 1971.
         In 1971 France placed the first order for operational tests: 1 Acquisition Unit and 
         2 Firing Units.
         The Armée de l'Air bought this SAM system in order to protect their airfields.
         The Crotale in this first opérational version (Crotale 1000) was above all engaged 
         for the Egypt-Libya and Angola wars in the 1980s.
         Further developments were launched for several customers among the 15 ones which 
         ordered this system.

          2) Installation in your Strike Fighters 2 installation(s)

         There are 2 options :
          - The "Sand" version in order to put in any "Desert" type SF2 install,
          - The "Green" version for any "European" type SF2 install.

         So you'll find them into 2 separated packs ready to play :)

          3) Credits
