Recommended Posts

rksl_pre_rel_typhoon1_4.jpgefa_release_splash_4.jpg

Description:

This addon is intended to represent the Royal Air Force's EuroFighter Typhoon FGR4 only. No other national version is included at this time.

A word about "Realism"

It includes some features and capabilities that current serving aircraft have not been given yet. We've taken the liberty of trying to represent a fully capable aircraft that can support the widest possible range of weapons and roles. For the RAF's FGR4 at least this level of capability should only be 2-3 years away according to media sources.

Features:

  • Custom Afterburner (3 activation options)
    • Auto - Hit full throttle and the afterburner activates. Close the throttle and it shuts off.
    • Throttle + Action Menu - Full throttle and an action menu option appears. Close the throttle and it shuts off.
    • Manual - Menu Only. This is the classic On/Off option.• 20 Preset Weapons load outs

    [*]Fully working and Practical HUD

    [*]Custom layout i.e. not BIS standards

    [*]Accurate Pitch ladders

    [*]Barometric and Radar Altimeters• Fully animated landing gear including dampers

    [*]Fully animated airbrake

    [*]Animated In Flight Refuelling Probe

    [*]Accurately modelled control Surfaces

    [*]Improved Flight model (over BIS stock aircraft)

    • AI Friendly handling
    • Excellent Short Field capability• Scripted Vapour Effects

    [*]Integrated Chaff and Flares (RKSL Flare system)

    [*]Wheel brakes

    [*]Brake Chute

    [*]Fully functioning "Bitchin' Betty"

    [*]ArmA2:Combined Arms compatible

    [*]RWR enabled

    [*]Thermal Image maps

    [*]Locking tones

    [*]Custom Weapons Pack

    • Supports all current UK weapons
    • Some EU weapons more added later

Brilliant addon :D - One though, how does the PW2 (remote) mode work?

Remote mode? I dont understand, do you mean "self designation"? or 3rd Party?

The Paveway 2 all require a 3rd Party to laser designate for you. So either a UAV or someone on the ground with a Designator.

Only the Paveway IV has self (dual mode) targeting out of the LGB family.

I see, normally I use the Mando Missile mod to launch the PW2s so I guess the remote function is for 3rd party laser designation.

Wait, so you can't even use a litening or sniper pod to designate?

Not in the current build no. But in future... maybe

I don't know of any other standalone plane that can do it either.

Meaning that it may be possible to translate the scripts to the likes of the Typhoon and Tornado to simulate the various targeting pods engine limits permitting.

Its a maybe... :twisted:

I'm not a Mando user so I can't comment. Best to ask Mando.

Oh, I thought you meant in real life. lol :oops:

Looking forward to the possibility of having targeting pods in the future. :P

I would highly recommend the Mando Missile addon, it adds targeting pod functionality to pretty much all aircraft with weapons such as the paveway bombs. Allows you to use the camera and laser designate from the aircraft :)

Been there, done that.

NOPE. Mando has too much stupid baggage and lags like all hell to the point that it is unusable. The targeting controls are also pants on head, while it sounds good on paper, it doesn't work.

Ideally it'll be proxy based where you load a sniper pod "magazine" on a pylon and work form there, instead of scripting a camera in an arbitrary location.

Nothing against Mandoble, who has infinitely more skill than I, but I just don't like it.
