Default [MiG-21bis] Updated GSh-23 Cannon Sound

[MiG-21bis] Updated GSh-23 Cannon Sound
Description
Everyone that has had the misfortune of hearing the terrible MiG-21bis cannon sound in external view can attest that it really needs to be changed. It sounds fake, lacks bass and doesn't sound like a GSh-23 firing 3,400-3,600 rounds/min like it should.

For some reason Leatherneck left the MiG-21bis gun as the default DCS "Plane Cannon" sound which sounds terrible in my opinion. This small mod replaces the sound of the MiG-21bis' gun with the sound of the UPK-23 gunpod. The UPK-23 uses the same gun as the MiG-21bis so this is the accurate sound of the real MiG-21bis gun.

I take no credit for creating the sound as this mod just overrides the "PlaneCannon.ogg" generic sound with the UPK-23 sound (No longer as of v1.2, now uses this sound edited by Rlaxoxo). I just figured this would be helpful for those that don't want to look through the DCS World filesystem.

Warning: This mod will also replace the gun sounds of the Mirage 2000C and SA342 Gazelle because they all reference the same sound asset (Why ED why). In my opinion it is worth it because the original sound is so horrible but let it be known.

Download Link v1.2: https://drive.google.com/uc?export=d...jByQ2lhTjA0M0U

v1.2 Changes:
  • Rlaxoxo (www.reddit.com/u/Rlaxoxo) kindly gave me some new beefy sounds from a real MiG-21bis GSh-23 cannon recording, these sound a lot clearer in the cockpit so I included them.
Older Versions:

v1.1
  • Now works with DCS v1.5.4.57288.170 after ED moved the location of the sound files
v1.0
  • Original Version

Install Instructions: Install as you would with any JSGME mod: http://forums.eagle.ru/showthread.php?t=98607

Don't think it changes the in-cockpit sound, I couldn't find the file to replace to have that happen.

Doesn't the gun pod house a pair of cannons where the mig-21 only has 1 autocannon?

It's the same GSh-23-2.

The weapon is twin-barreled by design.

Ah, I was wondering if one could somehow replace this awful sample with UPK one. Don't have to think about it anymore. Thanks!

You know I just played around with the sounds and I think the in-cockpit sound is correct even without the mod. Put on two UPK-23-250 gunpods and compare the sounds with the main cannon in the cockpit. They sound pretty similar with the obvious difference being you have 2 UPK-23-250's firing at once. It seems like it was just the external sound that was bugged.

Edit: It seems like the in-cockpit GSh-23 gun sound is the GSh23.wav sound being passed through a filter, so to summarise:

Without the mod:
  • MiG-21bis GSh-23 In-Cockpit Sound - Correct
  • MiG-21bis GSh-23 External Sound - Incorrect
  • UPK-23-250 In-Cockpit Sound - Correct
  • UPK-23-250 External Sound - Correct


With the mod:
  • MiG-21bis GSh-23 In-Cockpit Sound - Correct
  • MiG-21bis GSh-23 External Sound - Correct
  • UPK-23-250 In-Cockpit Sound - Correct
  • UPK-23-250 External Sound - Correct
