The latest version that is labeled with SFM

Hi man! is there any chance you have tried to make making flyable helicopter AI? Like Cobra with A-10A cockpit or Mi-28 with Su-25 cockpit?

Probably possible, not sure though why you want to

 

1) have a helicopter fly like a jet

 

Or

 

2) have a different cockpit over the one from the helicopter (ka50, huey or hip)

Many people don`t mind having Frogfoot cockpit in Mi-28. and Warthog cockpit in Cobra. They`d still love to fly them. Wonder if your F-15E mod would work on the server.So that people who dont have this mod installed still could connect.(There is a trick to allow for that and still have clean protected server) And if your F-15E flyable mod splashes something would server display F-15E in kill message? Those couple of questions i`ll have to investigate)

But they probably would mind if a helicopter flew like a jet instead of a helicopter or if all the screens are at the wrong location. 

Could this Cobra flyable mod have A-10A avionics would that allow for  having screen at the same place as A-10A screen?

So if Cobra made flyable wih AI flight model, but using Cockpit and avionics from A-10A.

If you use it with A10 avionics it will most likely also use A10 flight model. 

 What is the most simple way?  With all screens at the wrong place? What kind of screens are they? I mean so that FC3 user could fly Cobra. Is there any way? 

So you are concearned mainly with flight characteristics rather than with weapon employment?

The simplest way would be to replace the model. But that most likely causes issues with animations. And since we dont have the source model, solving it would be time consuming or impossible. 

 

And besides that, yes. Having a helicopter behave like a jet is very questionable.

Oh that. I thought of keeping Cobra AI SFM. and giving it a cockpit from A-10A. But i guess  that  would bring  some implications. what if not to give it FC3 cockpit at all  would it make things any easier?

How to hang M-117 bombs on all pylons in F-105 ?

I tried this by adding them to all the pylons in the appropriate file, but in the M-117 game they were still only on the outer nodes. In addition, I noticed that with the A-10 avionics, bombing in the CCIP mode proved impossible, at least with the Mk-83 bombs. Thank you for any help!

VSN F-84 is out now and the level of details in the model is amazing. Nice work guys.

 

Thanks for the heads up 👍 .. the download link is:

Its author says that it isnt finished yet, but to me it is not a problem because I will most likely use it as AI only and as background eye candy on my F-86 & Mig-19 missions:

it certainly looks gorgeous, pity that it has just a single livery for now 😞

Thanks a lot @cdpkobra for providing so many interesting cold war aircrafts for DCS, I truly enjoy having them available on my missions  🙂

Very nice mod indeed. But seems it is not possible to fire the sidewinders in any way, only guns work. Any suggestions? Thanks

The F-84G never mounted Sidewinders, using a realistic loadout is a good workaround. 🙂

This aircraft has been very fun to paint recently! I've been working on an old Thunderbirds livery used from 1953-1955 before they transitioned to the F-84F Thunderstreaks. It's been turning out quite alright so far! 😀

Maybe because of:

 

"Current version 2.5.7.01 WIP

The mod is unfortunately not finished yet, at the moment I'm still busy on other projects.
Most of it should work correctly."

Does this help? 🙂 (WIP)

 

We really need a '50s NATO/Warsaw Pact map...

Hi.  Where did you get the M117s on the C/L hardpoint?

Usual load going up north was 6 M117s C/L and one on each wingtip until they started running out and loaded less.   Have to find some new skins also I see.

I do not understand the question correctly, the bombs are defined in the "VSN_F105D.lua".

I tried to do something myself so that I could hang the 6 x M117 on the central weapons node, but it didn't work out. Once I was able to do it with the Su-17M4 plane, but not in the case of the F-105. I even wrote to the mod's creator but he didn't answer me.

You need to find the appropriate .edm name of the dispenser unit and the weapon you want to use. Then declare a loadout in the lua.  The loadout delaration will need the appropriate data filled in such as names, CLSID, weights, number of elements, position of the elements on the dispenser, etc.   After that is done you need to place the loadout information under the pylons details you want to have the weapons mounted on.

 

Sometimes there is already a CLSID listed in the aircraft lua and that will save you the trouble of declaring a loadout.   One picture is a Thud during load testing, the other is the VSN F-105 (coincidently, also during load testing)

 

Information is being sent to the VSN team on what I did to load up the M117's on their fantastic mod.
