It is designed for and works only in SF2 series. And will never work in SF1. ************************************************************* This is FREEWARE-DONATIONWARE and it CANNOT be distrubuted unless permissions are granted by myself. The original readmes, if any, and all other pieces of the package MUST remain intact. The names of all contributors, modders, suppliers, etc =MUST= be listed in any new readmes. This package and any part of it may NOT in any way, shape or form be used in any payware additions. See the original readme documentation, if any, for further allowances and restrictions Any persons wishing to make further modfications, contact me first. Any persons wishing to make further modifications, MUST remember to put everyone's name in it. Bribes and donations are accepted; ************************************************************* ************************************************************* THIS AIRCRAFT MOD OR ANY PART OF IT MUST NOT BE HOSTED OR POSTED FOR DOWNLOAD ON ANY OTHER WEB SITE WITHOUT MY EXPRESS PERMISSION, OR USED FOR ANY OTHER PURPOSE THAN THIRDWIRE FLIGHT SIMULATORS, AND MUST NOT BE SOLD OR OFFERED FOR SALE BY ITSELF OR WITH ANY OTHER FILES OR MODS. ************************************************************* Jarek Hereda ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ 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.

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.

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.

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. Edit and report bugs. Jarek Hereda. Thanks. Thanks to everyone who helped me with this. daddyairplanes,331Killerbee,76.IAP-Blackbird.
