    CHANGES:
    I highly recommend to overwrite previous files decals/weapons/guns- or best is delete the old one and put new files.
    YOU NEED TO DELETE OLD AIRCRAFT FOLDERSfrom previous Yasur pack.  Many things were changed and as tested Overwriting may cause some problems...So delete old ones put new ones.
    The rest (except Aircraft folders) are same can be overwritten without fear.
    Small changes in ini files, corrections on fuel loadout, changes in cockpit ini. 
    Small changes in skins. Also No longer fake weapon "no gun" is needed - thanks to The Trooper. He pointed small fix in data.ini.
    Added simple bump and specular maps. Also added damage tgas.
    Major changes in the cockpit - now it is much more correct. Although probably not everyone cares ore will see a difference. Anyway.
     
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    This is part that no one will read..but feels like I need to share this:
     
    This mod represents Sikorsky S-65 C-3 models used by Israeli Air Force
    History of Yasur in Israel air Force is somehow complicated. I was trying to represent all sub-models that served until now. (except yasur2025)
    S-65 was an export version based on HH-53C model.
     
    All serials are correct but not always represents specific units (although I've put a lot of effort to sort serials - and it's really hard as always in all Israeli serials from 60-80 period)
    I've split this pack into few sub-variants.
    Long story in short:
    Israel received the first batch S-65 C-3 in august 1970.(some sources give date 1969) already with two-digit numbers. Later re-serialed with added prefix 1 to numbers. This batch was called 'Series A'
    The second batch of Yasur helicopters was delivered in July 1971. 5 aircrafts with serials started with 2 (although for some time it carried prefix1) it's called 'Series B'.
    The third group consisted of 6 aircrafts were delivered between 1972-1973. Aircrafts received prefix 3 and were called 'Series C' also there were few differences in avionics and all 6 aircrafts were equipped with starlight nvg system.
    The fourth group was named 'Series D' and prefixed 4. Delivered after 1973 war. Eight helicopters from USMC surplus. The most prominent difference between S-65C-3 is an absence of refueling probe and auxiliary fuel tanks. Also different avionics and different armor plates in various points of the airframe. In the late 80s (probably) four of them were upgraded into late Yasur S-65 version called 'Series G' and serials prefixed 7,(aux fuel tanks and upgraded avionics).
    Other four remained unchanged to keep the ability to recover UAV (MARS method).
    Next fifth batch of 18(17) aircraft serials prefixed with 5 and 'called Series E' delivered somewhere in 1974-75 It was standard S-65C3 variant but with Titanium blades and again changes in avionics.
    Series six were two aircrafts purchased from Austria in May 1991. And prefixed 6. Right after delivery, it received all Yasur 2000 standard upgrades.
    Next and last batch of delivery is again USMC surplus CH-53A airframes delivered after Gulf War (April and September) 1991. Around 10 airworthy airframes. (Plus around 8 airframes in 1993 that were used as spare parts - not received serials nor designation) All aircraft were prefixed 8. And remain in service in standard USMC grey/black/green scheme, until some of them (seven) were designated for an upgrade to current Yasur standards.
     
    In 1992 IAF started Yasur 2000 program. During this upgrades, each helicopter that underwent conversion serial number was changed. S-65C3 plus two ex-Austrians received prefix 0. All other helicopters that were still in service were upgraded to Yasur 2000 variant and received prefix 9. (those are airframes of old CH-53A without aux fuel tanks and refueling probe) Visible difference is an addition of support braces on fuel tanks pylons.
    In game aircrafts will appear with following years of service:
     
    Yasur CH-53A Sea Stallion (1973-1992)
    Yasur S-65 C3 '69 (1969-1985)
    Yasur S-65 C3 '86 (1985-1992)
    Yasur 2000 (1993-2050)

    ******************IMPORTANT******************
    FakePilot mod needed to run this mod. 
    As always.
    Standard commands:
    ANIMATION 1 - cargo ramp half open
    ANIMATION 2 - cabin windows
    ANIMATION 3 - wipers outside/inside
    ANIMATION 4 - refueling probe
    ANIMATION 5 - nvg on some models
    Hook - changes position when refueling to see the tip of the spear.
    rescue op:
    Open "bomb bay" doors - cargo ramp and right side hatch/door
    ANIMATION 8 - Open side doors, lower jungle penetrator
    ANIMATION 9 - deploy PJ
    ANIMATION 10 - lower/raise hoist.
    Animation 8, 9 and 10 have a speed limit. So you can't hoist on full speed.
     
    With little practice, you can hoover. Without fake flaps and airbrakes.
    Important here to control is using rudder and vector thrust control.
    With heavy cargo load probably you need little run on A model as engines on A are little underpowered.
    Normally throttle vector control on 88-89 degree increase power 70% then slowly more and more, wait and it will take off.
     
    Cockpits.
    new upgraded much more correct cockpits.
    Yasur 2000 pit is much more correct now.
    Few differences between models mostly in humps/bumps/sensors dispensers.
    Weapons.
    The only "offensive" weapon is left/right side gunner.
    Skins included covers several years of use in Israeli 3 color, first brown and late 80s light brown and unique USMC 3 clolor scheme.
    Pilots - best to use is OldDiego's pilots.
    Have fun.
    Edit your way.
    And report bugs.
     
    Jarek Hereda.
     
    Thanks to everyone who helped me with this.
    And thanks for all support.

  2. P-15 / P-19 Flat Face pack V.1

    P-15 and P-19 radar objects for SF2 series game. This is mostly eye candy stuff. Just to improve the visual side of the game.
    Pack contains early P-15 Tropa on Zil-157 bed and late P-15 Flat Face P-15M2 Squat Eye and P-19 Dunay on Zil-131 chassis.
    In this pack, you will find new objects. But no worries nothing needs to be overwritten. 
    Basic modding skills are required to run this mod.  (copy/paste, mod folder structure etc.) 
    Mostly this mod is for modders, terrain builders.
    As some radar settings need to be adjusted for proper working with your installs. Radar family/network type needs to be adjusted and associated with your other SAM objects.
    Also, placement on terrains might be strange sometimes because of construction of the lod.  
    Userlist ini is very generic and not really 100% accurate.
    All ini files are beta....mostly to make the object working -  rotate radar mast, bend etc. All stations are set as EW radar and are connected to SA-3 radar network
    I'm hoping someone will do correct ini edits. Only if there are still some modders around here.....
    So do not complain if something is not working- just edit your way. You have working lod and skins...
    Basic skins green and tan. 
    All skins are in jpg format. Tga in 1024x1024. So you have to resize for your own preferred size.
    Play with it, and hope someone will do better ini for this.
    credits:
    model, ini edits ,skins - me  - JH.
    templates available upon request.

  3. F-21A Lion in USMC service.

    F-21A Lion US Marines loaned version of Kfir Canard used as adversary aircraft by VMFT-401.
    This files are designed for standard Kfir C1_77. So no need for DLC F-21A.
    Basic modding skills are required to run this mod.  (copy/paste, mod folder structure etc.) 
    It is designed for and works only in SF2 series.
    To run this mod you need also access to TW lod files from SF2:I (basic model lods for aircraft and cockpit also fuel tanks)
    I've edited ini files mostly in weapon stations to separate bomb stations from IRM, FT etc. Also removed some lines of unrealistic loadouts (like inboard IRM,lgb on belly station etc.)
    Loadout file is generally empty. Only fuel tanks are assigned. Have it your way in your adversary install. 
    All skins are done by me in 2048x2048 format based on templates by ludo.m54 => http://combatace.com...ge-5-templates/
    New Bump maps. 
    All decals are made by me. You will find 13 sets of decals (for 13 aircraft) so if you will choose to play with 14 or more aircraft that above 13...will be just blank...
    I am aware that this is not 100% accurate. But this is my way to represent those 13 colourfull aircrafts. 
     
    Pilot is from F-111 pack. I belive its from Florian.  
    Copy files to proper folders. 
     
    report bugs.
    Hope you will like it.
    Enjoy
    Jarek Hereda
     
    Personally, I am using another nation in my install USMC-agr - hope none of inis in this download contains such ini lines...if so...please change it to standard nations =USMC.

  4. AV-8B Harrier II Plus - SF2. ver.2019

    AV-8B Harrier II Plus /  Radar
    This is my humble rework of old AV-8B.
    Basic modding skills are required to run this mod.  (copy/paste, mod folder structure etc.) A fake pilot is needed to run this mod. 
    It is designed for and works only in SF2 series.
     
    Around 3 years ago - January 2016 -  KillerBee approach me with the possibility of updating bobrock's harrier,  and preparing  Night Attack version.  After some time, we had file ready for upload. Small changes here and there corrected a few things. And great skins by Killerbee.
    And then KillerBee disappeared from CA forum. Honestly, up to now, I have no contact with him. last - 4th May 2016. 
    So harrier stayed on drive waiting for his comeback. But .... I couldn't resist...And iI started to mod this again. Since I had no KB skin templates I had to do all new skins...and more.
    So now I am here...My standard AV-8B Harrier is already available for download same as Night Attack model. Both models recently updated,
    New cockpit and a whole set of new skins and decals on whole remodeled 'old' Harrier. - there is no single part of an original model that hasn't be touched/remodeled etc.
    First of all...If you want to count rivets...Do not. 
    Many things could be done other way....but I did it my way. So you have to bear with it.
    All skins are in 4096x4096 format. So you can easily resize down.  Generally, it is just a few skins.  If you have problems running this in game. Resize skins to lower resolutions
    Skins and decals are made to match most of the skins from Night Attack model pack. All VMA squadrons are equipped with a mix of both NA and radar model.
    Decals are based on my and KillerBee research. All serials are correct for the Night Attack version of Harrier II. Not always (but mostly) correct for a unit/year of service etc. But as always aircraft are rotating between units so its hard to track them down really.
    Big Thanks to Ravenclaw - He send me file with new ALQ-164 pod. Now it is part of the upload. 
    For some reason, I have added weapons that are present in Loadout.ini. 
    AIM-120 is specific for AV-8B via specific station code. To have proper year of apearance.
     
    Animations:
    1= canopy open - close
    4= refueling probe - beware of a speed limit
    3= night vision mode - not really helping but it is there - inside and outside animation.
    ************************************************************************************
    You can exlplore ini files for some additional features like in cockpit "FLIR" feed on HUD .
    AAQ-28 can be loaded only on station number 5 and centerline - in real - centerline come to use later and some units (VMAT) also moded wiring for use on other pylons. Nut in this mod only station 5 and 4 can carry AAQ-28.
    AIM-120 can be loaded only on stations 2 and 6.
    There are two stations for Intrepid Tiger II pod. In future.
    ECM also activates RWR on digital display indicator - even if ECM pod is not loaded.
    If you have my AV-8B Harrier already  - some files are same so simply overwrite. 
    for proper sound work you should add these lines into soundlist.ini
     
    SoundFileXXX=USMComm_1
    SoundFileXXX=Equalizer
    [Equalizer]
    Priority=NORMAL
    Looped=TRUE

  6. AV-8B Harrier II - SF2. ver.2019

    AV-8B Harrier II. 
    This is my humble rework of AV-8B.
    Basic modding skills are required to run this mod.  (copy/paste, mod folder structure etc.) 
    It is designed for and works only in SF2 series.
     
    Around 2 years ago - January 2016 -  KillerBee approach me with the possibility of updating bobrock's harrier.  After some time, we had prepared the updated file ready for upload. Small changes here and there corrected few things. And great skins by Killerbee.
    And then KillerBee disappeared from CA forum. Honestly, up to now, I have no contact with him. last - 4th May 2016. 
    So harrier stayed on drive waiting for his comeback. But .... I couldn't resist...And iI started to mod this again. Since I had no KB skin templates I had to do all new skins...and more.
    So now I am here...
    It ended with a new cockpit and a whole set of new skins and decals on whole remodeled 'old' Harrier. - there is no single part of an original model that hasn't be touched/remodeled etc.
    First of all...If you want to count rivets....Do not. 
    Many things could be done other way....but I did it my way. So you have to bear with it.
    All skins are in 4096x4096 format. So you can easily resize down. If you have problems running this in game. Resize skins to lower resolutions
    Decals are based on my and KillerBee research. All serials are correct for the first version of Harrier II. Not always (but mostly) correct for a unit/year of service etc.
    Big Thanks to Ravenclaw - He send me file with new ALQ-164 pod. Now it is part of the upload. 
    You will find separate upload soon with Operation Desert Storm skins and decals - Only units that participated in the operation.
    For some reason, I have added weapons that are present in Loadout.ini. 
    Animations:
    1= canopy open - close
    4= refueling probe - beware of a speed limit

  7. Meteors Over Korea. SF2.

    Meteors Over Korea
    Bunch of Meteors for the Royal Australian Air Force used during the Korean War.
    Basic modding skills are required to run this mod.  (copy/paste, mod folder structure etc.) 
    Install:
    Copy paste specific folders into a correct destination.
    Fake pilot is required to run this mod. Also, Thirdwire Meteor cockpit is required from the original game. 
    Fuel tanks- not to be afraid. Overwrite or just leave it. 100 gal tank is original TW tank. You can overwrite or just simply do not copy.
    175 gal tank also.
    Tanks are just ini files. Mod use tanks that are part of aircraft lod.
    Yes, again Meteors. 
    This is pack contains only F.8 and T.7 models used by RAAF.

    All skins are in 4096x4096 format. You can easily resize to needed resolution.  better to downsize than rescale to higher res.
    All decals are based on available materials and are historically correct.  Few nose arts included.
    I've made skins sets per year regarding loses and reinforcements in 77Sq. between 1951-1953. I was trying to be accurate as possible even with all game limits.  Loses /  reinforcements are credited per year..so loses from 1951 are not seen in 52 - but new planes are available as reinforcements arrived. 
     
    Credits.
    Veltro2k  - the original model early model.
    Me -  model rework into T.7 and F.8 and some other mambo jumbo like skins, decals, research...
     76.IAP-Blackbird - also T model re-working.
    Charles - original FM from original T.7 upload. 
    Nose art decals for Halestorm, Bow 'em Over, Cap'n Mac - from Kulbit's Gloster Meteor RAAF pack. 
    Seat - all credits o creator - unfortunately I don't remember who made this seat. I guess skin is by Kulbit.
    Pilots - I have no idea / don't remember who did it. All credit to him/her.  - one of my favorites figures in a game - I've added this to correspond with the data file.
    Weapons
    RP-3 rockets from Ravenclaw.
    This model is designed/checked only to work with ravenclaw's RP-3 rockets - so might be some strange positioning in other (stock) rockets.
     
    Have fun

    CHANGES:
    I highly recommend to overwrite previous files decals/weapons/guns- or best is delete the old one and put new files.
    YOU NEED TO DELETE OLD AIRCRAFT FOLDERS CH-53Cand HH-53C and HH-53B from Vietnam pack.  Many things were changed and as tested Overwriting may cause some problems...So delete old ones put new ones.
    The rest (except Aircraft folders) are same can be overwritten without fear.
    Small changes in ini files, corrections on fuel loadout, changes in cockpit ini. 
    Small changes in skins. Also No longer fake weapon "no gun" is needed - thanks to The Trooper. He pointed small fix in data.ini.
    Added simple bump and specular maps. Also added damage tgas.
    Major changes in the cockpit - now it is much more correct. Although probably not everyone cares ore will see a difference. Anyway.

    ******************IMPORTANT******************
    FakePilot mod needed to run this mod. 
    As always.
    Standard animation commands HH-53 C:
    LANDING GEAR - Nose light deploy/retract at any speed.
    ANIMATION 1 - cargo ramp half open
    ANIMATION 2 - cabin windows
    ANIMATION 3 - wipers outside/inside
    ANIMATION 4 - refueling probe
    Hook - changes position when refueling to see the tip of the spear.
    rescue op:
    Open "bombbay" doors - cargo ramp and right side hatch/door
    ANIMATION 8 - Open side doors, lower jungle penetrator
    ANIMATION 9 - deploy PJ
    ANIMATION 10 - lower/raise hoist.
    Animation 8, 9 and 10 have a speed limit. So you can't hoist on full speed.
    With little practice, you can even hoover. Without fake flaps and airbrakes.
    Important here to control is using rudder and vector thrust control.
    Normally throttle vector control on 88-89 degree increase power 70% then slowly more and more, wait and it will take off.
     
    Cockpits.
    One cockpit for HH-53C and CH-53C equipped with RWR and one cockpit for earlier non rwr HH-53B. Historically not all HH-53C airframes were equipped with RWR. BUt this mod covers RWR mod installed.
    Skins.
    All serial numbers are based on available photos and are historically correct and few versions of one unit for each helo.
    Few versions of one unit for each helo.
    CH-53C 21st SOS
    HH-53C 37th and 40th ARRS
    HH-53B 37th and 40th ARRS
    Weapons.
    The only "offensive" weapon is left/right side gunner equipped with GAU-2 minigun. Well, it is quite a defensive weapon.
    Unlike in pack 'Over Europe' here CH-53C can't be equipped with a refueling probe (small ini tweak will do the trick). 
    Fuel Tanks 450 US Gal. for CH-53C and HH-53C and 650 US Gal. for HH-53B
    There is a separate weapon station called SandyStation - with allowed all sort of offensive weapons. Purpose of this station is to fly with Sandy (or any other USAF aircraft) as wingman fully loaded. Same way can be added Sandy fuel tanks.
    IMPORTANT -
    Due to tu construction of this mod, it is better to use collision and landing on NORMAL setting. On hard, you may have some complications on the airfield - especially with underslung cargo load.
     
    Pilots - best to use is OldDiego's pilots.
     
    Have fun.
    Edit and report bugs.

  10. F-101A & C VooDoo. SF.2 2019 Redux.

    Reworked pack of F-101A and C VooDoo.
    Generally old good VooDoo in new dresses.
    There are some small changes in data.ini files mostly in weapon stations section - so Backup your original file. You might not like it.
     
    Despite VooDoo is extremely sexy aircraft it is much useless. Unfortunately. It was designed to be something different but had to serve in a totally different role. Nuclear Strike Aircraft. 
    Because I'm always doing mods my way - to fit my needs. I wanted to have squadrons that used  "fighting 101". So the thing is...this is one aircraft -  because squadrons contained a mix of A and C versions and this aircraft had very limited use I decided to make one aircraft to cover both A and C version.
    By default, I used A version limits.   Anyway, differences were only in the internal structure of airframe. 
    Airframe 54-1491 served as CO aircraft in 27th TFW. So in the early sixties, it will pop up in special markings for 78th, 91st, and 92nd squadrons. 
    If you want separate aircraft A and C you will have to do it on your own. Decals/serials for C are marked in numbers.lst with 'dot' .  
     
    All new skins in 3072x3072 resolution. New bump maps and specular maps. also in 3072.. plus decals to cover A and C models serial numbers.
    Pack contains 11 skin sets for early use by 27th TFW and then 81st TFW - all squadrons that ever used F-101A / C  (from different time periods to cover years of usage).
    All new decals consisting of 95 serial numbers for block 20-35 of A version and block  40-55 for C version. 

    Backup your original F-101 Folders. Also Decals!
    Pack also includes the Mk.7 Tactical Nuclear Bomb.  New model quickly made for purposes of this pack. 
     
    And an extra thing for squadron/wing geeks - set of skins for squadron hack. 
     
    Credits:
    Original models ErikGen
    yakarov - skins / decals / some small ini tweak / Mk.7 model
    Soulfreak - original skin for an extra thing. 
     
    Have Fun.
    May the VooDoo be with you.

  12. F-101B VooDoo. SF.2 2019 Redux.

    Reworked pack of F-101B/F VooDoo.
    Generally old good VooDoo in new dresses.
    There are some small changes in data.ini files mostly in weapon stations section - so Backup your original file. You might not like it.
    Pack contains three versions - In reality, IR sensor was applied to different airframes different block build - not really possible to cover in this game engine limits. To make it easier in this game it will be. This is mostly to cover in some right way decals I've made and units.
    VooDoo '59 without IR sensor - block build 65-96.
    VooDoo '65 with IR sensor  - block build - 100-120.
    VooDoo '69 ANG - same as 65 - just different set of skins.  (I have an additional nation in my install: USA Air National Guard - that's why I have it as a separate model - but in this pack, it is set as USAF bird).
    All new skins in 3072x3072 resolution. New bump maps and specular maps. also in 3072.. plus more than 1000 decals so the set is again huge after unpacking.
    Pack contains 17 skins for Air Defense Command - all squadrons that ever used F-101B (from different time periods to cover years of usage).
    and 7 skin sets for Air National Guard from different time periods. 
    All new decals consisting 451 serial numbers for blocks 65-120. Plus some buzz numbers decals - not all -  as Buzzes disappeared in mid 60's.
    Serial numbers cover B and F models. 

    Backup your original F-101 Folders. Also Decals!

    Some time ago (long ago) I started to use specific AIR-2 Genie for Voodoo - to accommodate it in weapons bay it is moded as specific stationcode=AIM4 - so to appear this Genie in a game you have to copy weapon AIR-2_Genie_101 also. Genie has new skin.

    Credits:
    Original models ErikGen
    yakarov - skins / decals / some small ini tweak 
    Plane Number (airbrake decal) for 132FIS ANG from original VooDoo pack by Dave.
     
    Have Fun.
    May the VooDoo be with you.

    So all serial numbers are historically correct. 
    National and squadron markings as always in my case are painted on skins.
    As weapons BAQM-34 - is EOGR missile - can be anything it will not work as drone anyway).
    Pylons are set as TLR - to accommodate EOGR  -but somehow there is an option to load one drone - do not use it. as it will appear somewhere in the middle of aircraft.
    Note:
    In this pack (unlike original Dels C-130) JATO is activated by vector thrust control (similar as in latest Tu-22 pack)
    If you have SEA version of DC-130A - probably you will need to rename pylons:
    DC-130_PylonInn
    DC-130_PylonInnBW
    DC-130_PylonOut
    to avoid conflicts with pylons of SEA versions - which have different colors.

  16. Meteors Over Israel. SF2.

    Meteors Over Israel 
    Bunch of meteors for SF2. For Isreal Air Force to be more specific. 
    Basic modding skills are required to run this mod.  (copy/paste, mod folder structure etc.) 
    Install:
    Copy paste specific folders into a correct destination.
    Fake pilot is required to run this mod. Also, Thirdwire Meteor cockpit is required from the original game. 
    Fuel tanks- not to be afraid. Overwrite or just leave it. 100 gal tank is original TW tank. You can overwrite or just simply do not copy.
    175 gal tank also.
    Tanks are just ini files. Mod use tanks that are part of aircraft lod.
    This is a highly modified Veltro2k model uploaded on CA somewhere in 2016 by paulopanz.
    Some time ago few guys decided (because they have a chance to do so) to rework this pretty aircraft. So, first of all, thank you Veltro2k.
    Although.
    There is just very few original parts of an old model. Most of it was remodeled. Added bits here and there.
    We changed mapping and we made new skins...and a lot of new stuff. You will see.
    That is part of a story...
    I took chance on modding this aircraft more and created some other versions.
    In this pack, you will find a few models available.
    F.8
    FR.9
    NF.13
    T.7
    T.7.5
    Skins covering all units from IAF service.
    All skins are in 4096x4096 format. You can easily resize to needed resolution.  better to downsize than rescale to higher res.
    In case someone will have some plans around FR.9 version - this is a specific model with added cameras via decals because only two Israeli FR.9 were recon capable. 
    I have FR.9 with glass nose also..to be uploaded...
    Credits.
    Veltro2k  - the original model
    Me -  model rework and some other mambo jumbo like skins decals, hangars
     76.IAP-Blackbird - also T model re-working.
    Charles - original FM from original T.7 upload. 
    Seat - all credits o creator - unfortunately I don't remember who made this seat.
    Pilots - I have no idea / don't remember who did it. All credit to him/her.  - one of my favorites figures in a game - I've added this to correspond with the data file.
    Weapons
    RP-3 rockets from Ravenclaw.
     
    And yes the pack is huge.
    Hope I did screw something here....
    Have fun

    Sikorsky RH-53D of Iran Navy Ver 3.0 for SF2

    This mod represents Sikorsky model of RH-53D. 12 aircrafts were ordered by Imperial Iranian Navy. Only six delivered before revolution. Add then all six remained in newly formed Islamic Republic of Iran Navy Aviation. 
    CHANGES:
    I highly recommend to overwrite previous files decals/weapons/guns- or best is delete the old one and put new files.
    YOU NEED TO DELETE OLD AIRCRAFT FOLDERS CH-53A and CH-53D_70. Many things were changed and as tested Overwriting may caouse some problems...So delete old ones put new ones.
    The rest (except Aircraft folders) are same can be overwritten without fear...
    Small changes in ini files, corrections on fuel loadout, changes in cockpit ini. 
    Small changes in skins. Also No longer fake weapon "no gun" is needed - thanks to The Trooper. He pointed small fix in data.ini.
    Added simple bump and specular maps. Also added damage tgas.
    Some changes and rearrangements in the cockpit

    ******************IMPORTANT******************
    FaAkePilot mod neede to run this mod. 
    As always.
    This addon works with my CargoPACK (included in rar file). All of the weapon stations are made as specific station code and will work only with this cargo pack. Of course, you can edit and use any other weapons available. 
    Standard commands:
    LANDING GEAR - Nose light deploy/retract at any speed. 
    ANIMATION 1 - right side door.
    ANIMATION 2 - left hatch cabin windows
    ANIMATION 3 - wipers outside/inside
    ANIMATION 10 - Winch
    Parking animations.
    Two parking animations included one for 'on land base' and other for 'on board' parking.
    You can fold tail and rotor by enabling animation in data.ini  file. But it looks silly. And my intention for this animation was eye candy on board vessel.

    With little practice, you can even hoover. Without fake flaps and airbrakes.
    Important here to control is using rudder and vector thrust control.
    With heavy cargo load probably you need little run on A model as engines on A are little underpowered.
    Normaly throtle vector control on 88-89 degree increase power 70% then slowly more and more, wait and it will take off. 
     
    Cockpits.
    Newly upgraded cockpit based on NATOPS manual. Mirrors working now and showing correct image.
    Fuel usage is not super perfect but compared to all previous H-53 models released here fuel gauges are working.

    Skins.
    All serial numbers are based on available photos, are historically correct. 
    Weapons.
    This addon works with my CargoPACK (included in rar file). All of weapon stations are made as specific station code and will work only with this cargo pack. Of course you can edit and use any other weapons available. Here is experimental Mk105 minesweeper sled different than in previous CH-53D pack. This one is only for RH-53D. To see Mk105 open cargo bay.

    Cargo loads.
    I am releasing this cargo load in the current condition. So maybe some skins needs to be adjusted.
    Cargo loads includes few cargo crates for cargo bay and hook, howitzer, MUTTs. Skins for MUTTS - Thank yo The Trooper.

    IMPORTANT - 
    Due to construction of this mod it is better to use collision and landing on NORMAL setting. On hard, you may have some complications on the airfield - especially with underslung cargo load. 
    Skins.
    1977 Imperial Iranian Navy
    Islamic Republic of Iran Navy Aviation with 3 skins 1979 paint inherited from IINavy, Grey paint introduced somewhere in 90's and late current azure blue salamander camo.
    Good to add nations ini entry regarding new "nation" created - Islamic Republic of Iran Navy /Imperial Iranian Navy.
    otherwise, you will have to change nation name to Iran.

    Pilots - best to use is OldDiego's pilots.  

    Have fun.
    Edit and report bugs.

    This mod represents Sikorsky model of RH-53D. It was used mainly by US NAVY Mine countermeasure units. At the end, of service time RH-53D were passed to USMC reserve units, where served as transport/heavy lift helicopters. Some were still used during Desert Shield/Storm operations in 1991. Finally, RH-53D was written off from units in 1996.
    12 aircrafts were also ordered by Imperial Iranian Navy. Only six delivered before the revolution. Add then all six remained in the newly formed Islamic Republic of Iran Navy Aviation. 
    CHANGES:
    I highly recommend to overwrite previous files decals/weapons/guns- or best is delete the old one and put new files.
    YOU NEED TO DELETE OLD AIRCRAFT FOLDERS RH-53D_70. Many things were changed and as tested Overwriting may cause some problems...So delete old ones put new ones.

    Standard commands:
    LANDING GEAR - Nose light deploys/retract at any speed. 
    ANIMATION 1 - right side door.
    ANIMATION 2 - left hatch cabin windows
    ANIMATION 3 - wipers outside/inside
    ANIMATION 4 - Refueling probe - H key (hook by default) will change seat position to see a tip of the IFR probe.
    ANIMATION 10 - Winch
    Parking animations.
    Two parking animations included one for 'on land base' and other for 'on board' parking.

    Newly upgraded cockpit based on NATOPS manual. Mirrors working now and showing correct image.
    Fuel usage is not super perfect but compared to all previous H-53 models released here fuel gauges are working.

    Skins.
    All serial numbers are based on available photos, NAVY and USMC documents and are historically correct. 
    Weapons.
    The only "offensive" weapon is left/right side gunner. Well, I'm straffing convoys with it with great success.
    Important - if there is no gunner - fake weapon (no gun/empty) must be loaded. For now, it must be this way.
    Same as default should be loaded Mk103 minesweep. This is allowing top cargobays to be seen. 
    This addon works with my CargoPACK (included in rar file). All of weapon stations are made as specific station code and will work only with this cargo pack. Of course, you can edit and use any other weapons available. Here is experimental Mk105 minesweeper sled different than in previous CH-53D pack. This one is only for RH-53D. To see Mk105 open cargo bay.
    Also, you can add refueling probe. At the beginning of service, this aircraft has only provisions for refueling probe.

    Cargo loads.
    I am releasing this cargo load in current condition. So maybe some skins needs to be adjusted.
    Cargo loads includes few cargo crates for cargo bay and hook, howitzer, MUTTs. Skins for MUTTS - Thank yo The Trooper.

    IMPORTANT - 
    Due to the construction of this mod it is better to use collision and landing on NORMAL setting. On hard, you may have some complications on airfield - especially with underslung cargo load. 
    Skins.
    All serial numbers, as far as I know, are based on photos and US Army docs and are historically correct.
    US Navy
     - HMH-12 'Sea Dragons' 1977
     - HMH-16 'Seahawks' 1979 
     - HMH-14 'Vanguard'  1981
     - HMH-18 'Norsemen' 1987
     - VR-24 World's Biggest Little Airline, Helos on COD duties.

    USMC - special for use in Desert Storm mod if needed:
     - HMH-772 Det.A 
    Pilots - best to use is OldDiego's pilots. 
    As bonus there is Eagle Claw folder -easy to find. Inside - skins for sand repainted RH-53D  - also replacement file for lod and deta.ini file -       this wil make EAPS dissapear. So backup original lod and data file before using Eagle Claw mod.  So yo were warned.

    Have fun.
    Edit and report bugs.

  22. Sikorsky CH-53D Sea Stallion (late)

    Sikorsky CH-53D Ver 3.0 for SF2
    This is a third party addon of late models Sikorsky helicopter CH-53.
    It is designed for and works only in SF2 series. And will never work in SF1.

    This mod represents a Late model of CH-53D with installed EAPS and auxiliary fuel tanks. I've split this model into two versions. Early with RWR blisters and AN/ALE-39 flare/chaff dispenser and late with some more blisters, new doubled CMD dispensers and ALQ-144 IR jammer on fuel tank pylons.
    Ant this will be the last model of Sea Stallion from me.

    CHANGES:
    I highly recommend to overwrite previous files decals/weapons/guns- or best is delete the old one and put new files.
    YOU NEED TO DELETE OLD AIRCRAFT FOLDERS CH-53A and CH-53D_70. Many things were changed and as tested Overwriting may cause some problems...So delete old ones put new ones.
    The rest (except Aircraft folders) are same can be overwritten without fear...
    Small changes in ini files, corrections on fuel loadout, changes in cockpit ini. 
    Small changes in skins. Also No longer fake weapon "no gun" is needed - thanks to The Trooper. He pointed small fix in data.ini.
    Added simple bump and specular maps. Also added damage tgas.
    Some changes and rearrangement in the cockpit

    ******************IMPORTANT******************
    FAkePilot mod neede to run this mod. 
    As always.
    This addon works with my CargoPACK (included in rar file). All of the weapon stations are made as specific station code and will work only with this cargo pack. Of course, you can edit and use any other weapons available. 
    Standard commands:

    LANDING GEAR - Nose light deploy/retract at any speed. 
    ANIMATION 1 - right side hatch and door.
    ANIMATION 2 - left hatch cabin windows
    ANIMATION 3 - wipers outside/inside
    Parking animations.
    Two parking animations included one for 'on land base' and other for 'on board' parking.
    I'm including two vessels moded as USMC nation. (same as in AH-1J pack) so you can practice start and land. 
    Those ships have moded catapults, deck and arresting cables in a data.ini file. 
    Those ships are limited only to those used during the Vietnam War on WestPac/SEA cruises.
    You can fold tail and rotor by enabling animation in data.ini  file. But it looks silly. And my intention for this animation was eye candy on board vessel.

    With little practice, you can even hoover. Without fake flaps and airbrakes.
    Important here to control is using rudder and vector thrust control.
    With heavy cargo load probably you need little run on A model as engines on A are little underpowered.
    Normally throttle vector control on 88-89 degree increase power 70% then slowly -more and more, wait and it will take off. 
    It is possible to land on board two included ships. don't forget about a hook.
     
    Cockpits.
    New upgraded cockpit based on NATOPS manual.
    Fuel usage is not super perfect but compared to all previous H-53 models released here fuel gauges are working.

    Few differences between models mostly in humps/bumps/sensors dispensers.
    Skins.
    All serial numbers are based on available photos, and USMC documents and are historically correct. 
    Weapons.
    The only "offensive" weapon is left/right side gunner. Well, it is a quite defensive weapon.
    Cargo loads.
    I am releasing this cargo load in the current condition. So maybe some skins needs to be adjusted.
    Cargo loads include few cargo crates for cargo bay and hook, howitzer, MUTTs. Skins for MUTTS - Thank yo The Trooper.

    Skins.
    All serial numbers, as far as I know, are based on photos and US Army docs and are historically correct.
    One specific folder for Desert Storm Mod Fans. including one of two units operating D model during Desert Storm.
    HMH-462
    Model 80 
    two generic paints green and 3color paint scheme.
    Model 99 
    HMH-362, HMH-363 and HMH-463 operating CH-53D at the end of service of this aircraft. In 2012 CH-53D was finally retired.
    IMPORTANT - 
    Due tu construction of this mod it is better to use collision and landing on NORMAL setting. On hard you may have some complications on airfield - especialy with underslung cargo load. 
    Pilots - best to use is OldDiego's pilots. 
    This mod still needs some work. But I am afraid that if I will not upload it, I might never fully finish.
    Have fun.
    Edit and report bugs.
    Jarek Hereda.
    Thanks.
    Thanks to everyone who helped me with this. daddyairplanes,331Killerbee,76.IAP-Blackbird. The Trooper

  23. UH-1H Huey. SF2. V1

    Bell UH-1H  Iroquois
    This is a third party add-on of Bell helicopter model UH-1H used by US Army Aviation and many many countries around the world.
    It is designed for and works only in SF2 series. And will never work in SF1.

    Copy all files to specific folders in your game mod directory. 

    ANIMATION 1 & 2 - cockpit doors.
    open bomb bay - open cargo doors - you will figure out why/how etc. 
    This is beta file. Some small ini edits might be needed. 
    I was planning to make it bigger but I've lost 'thing' for it..but of course you can play with it.
    For now and in near future I will not work on it - so honestly, I am abandoning it.
    Better to share than keep it on a hard drive.
     Aircraft include my generic Bell Huey cockpit.
    Pack includes one helicopter with 1 very generic skin and PSD templates so anyone can create any skin desired.
    Flying.
    As with all my previous helos flying is quite easy. With little practice, you can even hoover. Without fake flaps and airbrakes.
    Important here to control is using rudder and vector thrust control.
    Normally throttle vector control on 88-89 degree increase power 55% wait little and then increase to 100% and helo will take off nicely.

    Have fun.
    Hope you will enjoy it same as me when working on it.

    This mod represents Late model of CH-53A already with instaled EAPS and early models oF CH-53D with uprated engines.
    A model never received aux fuel tanks and were used until 1992. At the end of service mostly by reserve units.
    D model /early/ was used also until around 1992.  Not every D model was upgraded so in this config they were flying until the 90s.

    CHANGES:
    I highly recommend to overwrite previous files decals/weapons/guns- or best is delete the old one and put new files.
    YOU NEED TO DELETE OLD AIRCRAFT FOLDERS CH-53A and CH-53D_70. Many things were changed and as tested Overwriting may cause some problems...So delete old ones put new ones.

    Cockpits.
    One cockpit based on NATOPS manual, an early model for both A and early D model.

    Both models are similar. The only difference is in engine power. D model is 'stronger' so it's easier with heavy loadouts. And only D can tow 'experimental' Mk105 minesweeper.

    Skins.
    All serial numbers are based on available photos, and USMC documents and are historically correct. 
    Weapons.
    The only "offensive" weapon is left/right side gunner. Well, it is a quite defensive weapon.
    Ah.. there is Napalm barrel bombs. Used in Vietnam War. Inside _WingsOverVietnam_Only Addon Folder
    ...BOOM.
    Cargo loads.
    I am releasing this cargo load in current condition. So maybe some skins needs to be adjusted.
    Cargo loads include few cargo crates for cargo bay and hook, howitzer, MUTTs. Skins for MUTTS - Thank yo The Trooper.

    in 1973 USMC joined NAVY in operation End Sweep and equipped their D model (HMH-463 only) with minesweeping stuff. So here you can "tow" Mk105 minesweeper. It is just interim mk105. V.2 is under development.
    To see Mk105 open cargo bay.
    IMPORTANT - 
    Due to construction of this mod it is better to use collision and landing on NORMAL setting. On hard, you may have some complications on airfield - especially with underslung cargo load. 
    Countermeasures.
    I've deleted Countermeasures from weapon loadout. 

    Skins.
    All serial numbers, as far as I know, are based on photos and US Army docs and are historically correct.
    CH-53A in Vietnam used by HMH-463 and HMH-361.
    In mid-80s A model was still in use by some units. One of the last unit to use CH-53A was HMH-772 until 1992 when they send A to AMARC.
    Also in mid-80s ( I believe it was in middle or late) US Navy composite squadron VC-1 was using old ex-marine CH-53A until 1992 when they send them to AMARC. I think they were using only these two aircrafts.
    CH-53D
    Few paintings fro different years,  early green early 80s green and tri-color mid-80s.
    HMH-361, HMH-362, HMH-461, HMH-461 - two schemes one - 78 from a trip to Japan and one 1973 during Operation End Sweep.

    Pilots - best to use is OldDiego's pilots. 
    This mod still needs some work. Will be working on it. 
    Have fun.
