    Modding, skinning, and specially, badass planes...
  1. Hey, how are ya'll, I got a problem and I hope someone can solve it: I got Bandidos Team's HAL Tejas mod, but when I started playing, I noticed that the plane starts 'wobbling' (pitching up and down) and becomes almost uncontrollable when near or past Mach 1. Has anyone been able to solve this and how? Thank you in advance...! Mariano
  2. Hi! Actually no, the IIICZ has a slightly modified skin, like the IIIO and other models, that's why you need the model...
  3. View File Dassault/FMA Rafale EA-2/DA BACKSTORY: In 2014, with the Mirage retirement in mind, Argentina started a competition to decide wich plane was going to replace it in the near future. Due to the strategic position of the country and the abundance of resources, the contest ended up having various options: the F/A-18E/F, the Tejas MK1 and MK2, the Gripen, the Su-30, the MiG-35, the J-10CE and the Rafale, all with unique variants to fill the needs of the Argentinian Air Force. The chosen plane was the Rafale. The Argentinian Ministry of Defence agreed on 18 planes, 12 Rafale EA-2s and 4 Rafale DAs. The Rafale EA-2 is an advanced variant of the Rafale F4, equipped with AESA radar and Conformal Fuel Tanks. It can fire the MBDA MICA missiles, along with some russian ordenance. This is because Dassault, Argentina and Russia agreed to replace the british parts with russian parts in the exchange of Argentina buying and equipping the Rafale with russian precise guided munitions. The Argentinian Rafale participated in various exercises with NATO and eastern side countries, like the "ECOAS I", where the Argentinian pilots showed its great ability to fly low, "sinking" the USS George Bush. Special thanks to JAT81500, for releasing the Dassault Rafale F4, wich is used as the Dassault Rafale EA-2 And ThirdWire, for this amazing sim, that I love and play almost everyday... I hope you enjoy this mod as much as I do. Have a good flight! Good hunting! Submitter 1309mariano Submitted 01/08/2022 Category What If Hangar

  5. Dassault Rafale EA-2: The Dassault Rafale EA-2 is an advanced variant of the well known Dassault Rafale, developed for Argentina to replace the Mirage. The Omnirole plane can compplete all types of sorties and has been in service since 2018. It is considered a whole new variant of the Rafale, since all the parts that BAe provided to build it were replaced with russian parts, with some of them being more powerful than its predecessors. It is actually in service with the 6th Fighter and Attack Group, belonging to the 6th Air Brigade. It has participated in the "ECOAS 1", a joint exercise with the US Navy, where the pilots were able to "sink" the USS George Bush, showing an exceptional ability to fly low and engage from long distance.
  6. Help required!

    I use keyboard actually, so is an FM problem, maybe is something on the drag numbers...
  7. Well, I got an SU-30 and 35 and a Gripen and both share the same problem: they do a little turn to one side (in the case of the russian boys, to the right, in the case of the Gripen, to the left). I think it might be a FM problem. Does anybody have the solution for that? Thank you!
  8. Sukhoi SU-30MKA (Modernizirovannyi Kommercheskiy Argentinskaya) from the 6th Fighter Group, based in Tandil, Buenos Aires, during its presentation tour around the country, visiting the Aconcagua near the border with Chile. The SU-30MKA is considered the most advanced variant of the SU-30, being matched only by the SU-30MKI, with advanced air-to-ground and air-to-air capabilities, it can carry Mk-series bombs and bomb racks, KAB-series GPS/laser guided bombs, Exocet anti-ship missiles and various air-to-ground missiles such as the Kh-29 and Kh-35. It entered service in december, 2021, and 33 airframes have been produced, with 3 more arriving in June, 2022. The MKA is considered the most advanced plane in Latin America, showing an outstanding performance against brasilian Gripens in the Carioca-Gaucho joint exercise. The Argentinian navy has considered acquiring at least 12 of these aircraft to equip the Naval aviation and complement the Super Etendard Modernisé bought in 2019.
  9. Hey, I'm Mariano, I made the skins of the J-10AR and the IA-16 Serpiente, I also made fictional skins of several planes for the Argentinian Air Force. If you need it, count me in

    Superb!
  11. View File Lockheed/FMA IA-16 "Serpiente" Lockheed/FMA IA-16 Serpiente: BACKSTORY: The year is 1998. Argentina starts showing its newly acquired A-4AR Fightinghawk, modernized to replace the old A-4Bs. While this was happening, it was clear that the Mirages had to be retired anywhere in a near future. So, the Fabrica Militar de Aviones, also called FMA, joins Lockheed Martin to develop a multirole, supersonic fighter, to fill the space that the Mirage will no longer cover. The result of this alliance is the IA-16 Serpiente, a multirole, supersonic and highly capable version, developed from the F-16. The Serpiente is very similar to the Japanese F-2, but they have some differences that make them unique: while the F-2 has a boom receptor for air refueling, the Serpiente has a fuel probe, being capable of refueling from the KC-130 owned by the FAA. The avionics and a lot of parts from the plane itself are made in Argentina, and before 2008, the plane could be made in Argentinian soil without importing a single manufactured piece. The first plane flew in 2002, and was introduced in the FAA in the year 2005. The plane is equipped with Python 5 and AMRAAM missiles. It also can be equipped with AIM-9Xs and, due to the open architecture, it can be equipped with MICA and Meteor missiles. In 2007, Argentina recieved a first batch of 24 Serpientes, with 12 going to the 5th Fighter Group and the other 12 to the 6th Fighter Group, and in 2015, with the retirement of the Mirages and Neshers, another 24 IA-16 Serpiente Block 2 were ordered, plus the modernization of the existing ones to the Block 1+ standard, matching the avionics of the upcoming versions. The nacionalization of the whole assembly proccess of the plane has opened the opportunity for exports, being offered to small countries, like Uruguay, Paraguay and El Salvador. These 3 countries allegedly planned to buy 12 units of the Serpiente each one, but pressure from the US (even though the Serpiente is a US derived product) made them decline the offer. The Serpiente has seen service in the FAA for 15 years now, and is expected to surpass 2040. The future of this plane looks bright, with several modifications planned for the next year, like a radar-absorbing painting, to have semi-stealth capabilities (coming probably next update). Special thanks to: Dels, the creator of the F-2. EricJ, who uploaded the F/A-18A and its HUD, which I used for this mod. SandMartin, who helped me to remake the cabin. ValAstur, who inspired me to make this mod, and for the Nachash, the starting point of this. Eagle114th, for the screenshots, which he took while I was isolated, and for taking the time to test everything (he tested absolutely EVERYTHING and helped me correct it) ThirdWire, for this awesome sim. CONTENTS: Lockheed/FMA IA-16 Serpiente and its decals. Rafael Python 5 and Hughes AIM-120-AR, the missiles of this plane. Fuel tanks. Pilot and refuel probe. NOTES: The cabin is bugged, and we couldn't fix it. We corrected the position of the seat, but some things dissapeared, as far as I know, the LOD of the cabin is bugged.

  13. (WHAT IF) THE ARGENTINIAN ZERO: During the 1990s, the F-16 was the predetermined fighter plane for every NATO allied country. Some countries even did its own versions: with the help of Lockheed Martin, Japan developed the Mitsubishi F-2. In the other side of the world though, Argentina was searching for a replacement of its ageing A-4s and Mirages. In the real world, they got the A-4AR Fightinghawk, but since this is a "what if" thread, I have the honor to introduce you to the Lockheed/FMA IA-16 "Serpiente". The Serpiente used the same blueprints as the F-2, but with some modifications on the avionics, and in the intake, to meet the requeriment of a plane capable of mantaining a low altitude flight regime without damaging the engine. Also, the Serpiente could be armed AIM-120 and AIM-9s, along with several multi purpose bombs and AG missiles like the Exocet or Martín Pescador. Painted in a low viz scheme, the Serpiente put Argentina among the top air forces in the world, competing with Japan, France, and the UK. These planes saw an extensive use in the FAA, participating in various drills and exercises along with countries like the UK, France, India and Germany. In 2015, the Mirages were retired, and Argentina made an order for 24 IA-16 Block 2, and upgraded the existing ones to the Block 1++ "Yarará" standard, to match the avionics and radar of the upcoming Block 2. The "Serpiente" is still in service today, with more than 25,000 flight hours in his record. Sorry for the quality, these were made in my laptop... IA-16 from the 6to Grupo de Caza, based in Tandil, Buenos Aires. IA-16 from the 5to Grupo de Caza, based in Villa Reynolds, San Luis.
  14. I remember seeing a Jaguar operating on a carrier. I think it was called Jaguar M, and was in the run with the Super Etendard... Nice model though, it looks very nice... Mandatory screenshot: what if Argentina had bought Rafales?
