VSN Northrop Grumman EA-6B Prowler


Recommended Posts

Most beautiful western aircraft ever made.... The A-6....

 

I really have been waiting Heatblur get their AI out and wish that they can make it flyable as well. But all variants for AI really are needed for dcs, so thank you!

For your consideration and enjoyment,   I present to you,   The VSN Northrop Grumman EA-6B Prowler   This model was purchased by The Admiral  from Turbo Squid   (Admiral1

Just saw that the air refuel receptacle position was off. Tried to fix it for fun....       The correct position is:         air_refuel_receptacle_pos =     {8.006

I'm working on several Prowler skins. Mostly 1980s/Desert Storm Era.   VAQ-138 Yellow Jackets, 1985:   VAQ-132 Scorpions, 1991 (ODS), with mission markings.

Please, try downloading the file in my post again. There initially was a typo in the aircraft length, the post is updated with corrected file. It should now work properly. Thanks for your feedback!

im hoping to see your lua get put into the main file for this mod, i also hope this mode ends up on the user files section

I've made some additons you can put in your templates. For EA-6B_1.dds and EA-6B_2-dds you have a lot decals in different colors you can choose. I'also added some details.

 

Updated 21/01/17  - Added more decals and details to the decal templates

                               - Removed AN/ALQ-99 template, Urbi made a far better one

 

I've also retextured the pilots so they don't look that shiny and tweaked the Oxi hose so you can see it properly.

That will be done with the fuel tank. I suggested to the EA-6B team to use the 275 liter tank. This is more realistic and has a much better texture. change the following entry for the tanks in EA_6B.lua: "{CLSID =" {0395076D-2F77-4420-9D33-087A4398130B} ", arg_increment = 0.0}, - PTB-275"

The correct position is:


        air_refuel_receptacle_pos =     {8.006, 1.475, 0.115},

 

This belongs in the EA_6B.lua if anybody is interested.

I've made a template for the new fueltank PTB 275.

 

For now i just copied the dds files into a folder i created in ..\Bazar\World\textures named 'AeroWeapons'. It will affect the F-5 tank, just so you know.

 

Here is the dropbox link to the template  -->  https://www.dropbox.com/s/snzfp5ak4gf9i2o/PTB275_template.7z?dl=0

 

To add the tank to the plane, just add this at the beginning to your EA_6B.lua.

  ->  { CLSID = "{0395076D-2F77-4420-9D33-087A4398130B}" ,arg_value = 0.0},     -- PTB-275

Thanks for the work! Nice to see some more liveries have been added. Cant wait to see that Prowler and the improved flight model in action, I just updated a mission I'm gonna use it in.

Since I wanna put that beautiful jet all over my flight decks: Does anyone know how many Prowlers on deck could be considered "normal"?

Great mod!

I noticed when landing in Hama on the Syria map, the prowler bumps in to the hangar when parking since the wings are wider than the hangar. It then explodes. Is there any way to configure it to prevent it trying to enter the hangar?

Amazing model and functionality! KUDOS!

This model will come in handy, once ED finished the ECM feature of the hornet. Maybe we'll have basic electronic warfare capabilities for AI flights soon. *fingersCrossed*

Many thanks to all who made this great model possible.  I noticed that after a carrier takeoff the launch bar does not retract and will protrude out the nose gear cover after the nose gear is retracted.

 
Changing this line in the LaunchBar section of the .lua file will fix the problem.


Change (should be the last line in the LaunchBar section):
{Transition = {"Stage", "Extend"},   Sequence = {{C = {{"ChangeDriveTo", "Mechanical"}, {"Arg", 85, "from", 0.745, "to", 1.0, "in", 0.2}}}}},


To:
{Transition = {"Pull", "Retract"},   Sequence = {{C = {{"ChangeDriveTo", "Mechanical"}, {"Arg", 85, "from", 0.745, "to", 0.0, "in", 0.2}}}}},

To correct wing collision errors.
