Gearing class FRAM II Destroyer v1.2 beta
« on: December 31, 2017, 09:35:50 AM »

Gearing class Destroyer upgraded by FRAM progam (3D only) based on the Fletcher MkII 1960 by Blazing from here:

https://www.sas1946.com/main/index.php/topic,33000.msg354218.html#msg354218





https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gearing-class_destroyer#FRAM_II_upgrade

About modernization programs "FRAM" (there were several of them) can be read by the link above.

In a nutshell about destroyers of the "Giering" type.

This type was a continuation of the development of the types "Fletcher" and "Allen F. Summer." The main visual differences were the paired artillery in the towers Mk.38 and the length of the ship. What actually and with has induced on "modernization". The basis was taken "Fletcher" MK2 from here:https://www.sas1946.com/main/index.php/topic,33000.msg354218.html#msg354218 (thank you very much Blazing).



As can be seen from the screenshots above, the gun mounts have been replaced with paired ones, the installation sites for SAM have been changed, the masts and radar equipment have been changed, and the guard rails have been added to the medium superstructure and helicopter pad.

The mod was tested in version 4122.

Mod does not have its own slot and for successful installation you must have Fletcher MKII 1960 Destoryer (with Flight Deck) installed:https://www.sas1946.com/main/index.php/topic,33000.msg354218.html#msg354218

Link to Gearing:

Installation method - unpack to your folder with mods and select Fletcher MKII 1960.

From the bugs present at the moment and unsolved problems:
1. Do not work: 2nd twin gun and SAM launchers (or anti-aircraft missiles).
(I have not installed "Clemenceau class, nor" Ship Extension "- respectively, the work of missiles, etc., I can not check.)
2. The possibility of landing on the helipad is preserved, but the helicopter "hangs" over it at some distance.
3. In the existing towers (MK38) only one gun is currently in operation.
4. Possible bugs in the "color" of the damage model of the central superstructure.
5. The flag did not hang; "Gearings" were used not only by the US fleet, but also by fleets of other countries.
6. Radars, phased arrays, "TACAN" antennas "not quite" correspond to reality, but at the moment for "Frankenboat" this is enough.
Perhaps there are other bugs that I did not see or forgot to mention.

Considering that the "Gearings" took part both in the Second World War and in the war in Korea, and in the war in Vietnam,

well, it was just impossible not to try to make such a famous type. 

And in conclusion I want to thank:

1C - Meddox Games - for IL-2
Blazing - for Fletcher MKII 1960
Gio - for ShipGio Pack
mace - for Project 85

And all those whom I did not mention on this list (maybe I forgot someone to mention - please let me know and I will add to the list of credits).

Yours faithfully

Bison_M

P.S.  (EDITED) Happy New Year! ;)

Thanks Bison
A nice looking ship
I have one problem - the ship shows up in FMB but not in game -
Perhaps I have missing guns in ships.ini ?
I will investigate ;)
Thanks anyway - will let you know if I fix it.

Hi Squashman.
Is working properly (if it appears in the game) Fletcher MKII 1960?
If - yes, then "Gearing " will work correctly, too.

The Fletcher MkII 1960 is the same, but I realised that I didn't have the Clemenceau class - Fixed now

Several "fletchers" were modernized according to the program "FRAM":
