Lightbulb Model Request: NITKA sky jump for CATOBAR carrier takeoff training

Dear 3d modelers,

maybe someone of you has the skill and time to model a NITKA sky jump as static object? It would be great to train takeoffs (yes it is possibe from the Kuznetzov too) for us Su-33 and Harrier pilots on existing airfields. Maybe it's fun for others too since the several other types where tested on sky jumps as well: MiG-27, MiG-29, Su-25, Su-27S, Su-27UB, J-15, F-14A, F-18 (yes its true), F-35, inline skater.


Here are some pics for reference of the NITKA / Saki sky jump on the crimean penisula.

Looks pretty cool, would like to see in DCS. I have no idea how to code a static object like this, but I would be happy to take the modeling aspect as a challenge.

Last time I did a ski jump not all airframes could use it, but that was a few years back.

Will try again sometime soon.

It may be a limitation from the collision model, damage model, and/or the FM used.

True

The A10C could use it but the A10A could not, This was when the A10A got it's AFM.

Cool you guy's looking into it! If you post the EDM file i try to figure out how to register it as a static model in the lua files!

Interesting that not all planes could use the ski jump you mentioned. Did they go thou the 3d model / ignore the collision model of the ski jump? I hope the DCS engine changed since your last attempt.

I'll check out some reference images and maybe attempt a mockup model of this.
