Ki-44-II Pack
« on: October 20, 2015, 06:57:01 AM »

Hi guys!



From Readme: "Modeled Ki-44-II subtypes Ko, Otsu and Hei with their historical armament and loadouts.
It improves historical accuracy of armament and loadouts, setting them respectively as follows: Armament * Ko: two 7.7 mm Type 89 machine guns (synchronized) firing through the propeller with 500 r.p.g. and two 12.7 mm Ho-103 machine guns in the wings with 250 r.p.g. * Otsu: two 12.7 mm Ho-103 machine guns (synchronized) firing through the propeller with 250 r.p.g.. Provisions for two 40 mm Ho-301 cannons in the wings with 10 r.p.g. *Hei: two 12.7 mm Ho-103 machine guns (synchronized) firing through the propeller with 250 r.p.g. and two 12.7 mm Ho-103 machine guns in the wings with 250 r.p.g.. Loadouts * All Ki-44-II models: either two 30-50-100 kg bombs or two 130L drop tanks.

A special mention deserves the Ho-301 40 mm cannon, using caseless ammunition.
Its muzzle velocity was reduced to 220 m/s and rate of fire increased to 400 rounds/min, as historical.


FYI, muzzle velocity was 240 m/s and rate of fire 150 rounds/min. Actually, sources are contradictory and figures respectively vary from 220 to 246 and from 400 to 475; we trusted in Japanese Wikipedia, being probably other sources derived from Allied tests, instead of genuine ones.

Also with "only" 400 rounds per minute, you'll empty your magazine in 1.5 seconds! :o So, choose carefully your target and aim accurately! :D

Default version of Otsu has been correctly modeled without any wing weapon:



and eventually Hei got its historical reflector gunsight!



Tested successfully only with 4.09 + UP2.01! It shouldn't have compatibility issues with any ModAct environment, though, if any other Ki-44-II has been installed. For same reason, modpacks like DBW or HSFX, containing by default Tainan's Ki-44 (IIRC), could cause troubles if this pack is installed. Any feedback would be highly welcomed! ;)

Hi guys!

I'm working on a patch to improve compatibility with "stock" DBW Ki-44 (mainly the Ko version). For now you can install this pack in DBW with some issue only on Ki-44-II-Ko (double loadout entries and bombs/pylons error in bombs+droptanks loadout).

Note: you need to disable hidden Ki-44s for DBW *v2.0* mod from Vampire_Pilot, if installed, in order to avoid incompatibility issue.

Bye!

    Very nice!  Please, is there a way to copy and paste from a PDF file? Can any friend post here the air ini, planes.ru and wepows.ru?
