What ever happened to the SA-2 missile transporter?


Recommended Posts

One of my interests is recreating realistic SAM sites, and in my browsing I stumbled across some photos of a DCS SA-2 missile transporter model.

This was from an Aprill 2018 newsletter.

I went looking for the model, initially in the mission editor, and then just digging around the DCS files, but couldn't find it. Seems it never made it to release. My question is why? Obviously someone put a lot of time and effort into the model, as it looks fantastic, and it seems sad for that to go to waste. Being a simple transporter, I don't imaging there's really any additional functionality required of it either. (I'm thinking as a static/AI only model, not any Combined Arms functionality.)

 

Obviously not a high priority in any way shape or form, but the images made me curious non the less.

+1 .. I’d love to see it added to the Sim, in two versions: with and without a load 👍

ED has not talk about them from some time ago, but as other stuff pressent on DCS World directories  that require ED build towed / trailer technology first to enable them and after some kind of carrier / replenish ammunition to use as intended.

Ahh, that explains it. Thanks.

 

Still, it’s a shame it couldn’t be released as a static model first, until the relevant tech allows for more. Combined with some nice placeable berms/revetment models (desperately needed in my opinion), you’d really be able to fill out a fixed SAM site nicely with this.

I wholeheartedly agree, there are also many other battery components missing from our SAM sites and it only seems to be the Patriot that's really flushed out.

 

We're even missing the more commonly associated acquisition and height finding RADARs for the SA-2, that being the P-18 "Spoon Rest D" and the PRV-11 "Side Net" we actually have the latter as a very well done 3D model that's been in DCS for ages, only it's non-functional eye-candy (though is animated in the model viewer) which is placed on the Caucasus map with no control by the player or the ME.

 

There's also various operator and electronics cabins - though here an OdAZ-828 would suffice as it seems to be a common platform (also for the SA-3 and SA-5). There's also a slightly different trailer for RADARs such as the P-18 and P-19.

Maybe they could tie it into reloading and even better the warehouse system, for instance after a set time the missile teleports from the transloader to the launcher, provided the 2 are close enough together. You could then set-up convoys to replenish ammunition - though this maybe makes more sense in a dynamic campaign setting.

Sa-5 continue on develop, that require more time to build the missile flight model and the guidance system.

About the other stuff missing, has not a priority and need 3d modelers has been available to make all systems.

ED has actually filling holes add new systems (Sa-5, S-60AAA, KS-19 100mm AAA, WW-2 systems) an update old 3D models (Sa-6, Sa-10).

Are they really adding soviet-era heavy flak? With fire control radar director?

AI Units

New and Updated assets

Because DCS World is built on a project spanning almost two decades, some units now show their age and will be updated throughout the year. It is also important that we add new units to better fill the battlefields. Here are some of the items that we intend to create or update in 2021:

Large Aircraft: B-52H, Tu-95MS, Tu-142, B-1B, IL-38, and Tu-160

Carrier Aircraft: S-3B and SH-60B

Ground Units: M1A2, AMX-56 Leclerc, Wespe Sd.Kfz.124, KS-19 100mm ADA, Son-4 “Flap Wheel” radar, C1 Ariete, Pantsir SA-22 “Greyhound”, and S-300/SA-10 “Grumble”.
