This is, basically, weapons mod for FW-190 A and F-8 series, but also there is some unsignificant exterior and FM fixes.

Chassis inner covers animation fixed for A-4, A-5 & A-5 1.65 Ata. Now inner covers is closed, when chassis in lowered position.


Inner chassis covers removed for A-8, F-8 and A-9, since it has different construction from presented in game. Especially since because inner covers oftenly were removed due to dirty conditions, and especially, on Ostfront. Sliding covers on main gears were clogged with mud.

Overwrite, if prompted. Also, I recommend U to remove folders \RocketX4+backfire and \Mistel_RC, as its obsolete and RC Mistel is part of this mod now.

Viel Gl├╝ck !
-----------------------------

Important fix: AI now can deploy guided missiles against air targets, not only bombers, but also against fighters
                    in appropriate situations, if fire solution exist (no direct order needed for X-4).
                    Also, AI now commits stand-off attacks with X-7 against ground targets in more realistic way,
                    range up to 1200-2000 m, depending on AI skill.

Fix & update: Experimental acoustic homing LT.1B4 Pfau torpedo added to FW-190 A-5 1.65 Ata loadout list.
                   This is anti-ship torpedo, slightly slower than standart LT.F5b, but it homing to closest naval surface target
                   (hostile or friendly) from range about half-kilometer. If it misses target, it goes to another run.
                   Also, important part of this update is a AI fix, improving AI handling of guided missiles, especially in air-to-ground
                   role. Now AI can attack specific ground target it "want", including naval; commit ground attack with X-4 AAM
                   in guided mode; in some cases it will turn missile back or another run, if it missed target.
                   General AI control over X-series missiles in air-to-ground mode also improved and depending on AI skill.

Update:       added droptanks, included radio-controlled Mistel mod:
                   http://www.sas1946.com/main/index.php/topic,7323.msg74912.html#msg74912

Update [2010.11.24]:
- Added Mistel version of FW-190 F-8, works exactly as radio-controlled Mistel mod;
To have new AC available if QMB & FMB, I recommend U to add following line in air.ini file:
 Fw-190F-8Mistel   air.FW_190F8MSTL 2                    NOINFO  g01   SUMMER  #NOQUICK
and another line in plane_ru.properties file (optional): Fw-190F-8Mistel      FW-190 F-8 (Mistel), 1944
- Rewired fire control for new weapons configurations - for these configurations "outer pod on/off" button switches inner wing guns along with outer wing guns. This way it's possible to fire hood MG's independently;
- Rewired ammo counters for A-6 - A-9, now inner ammo counters is for inner MG151/20 (wing root guns), outer ammo counters is for outer guns. For hood MG's is a signal lamps only;
- Added some new weapon configurations for F-8 & A-9.

AI fix
« Reply #3 on: August 28, 2010, 09:26:56 AM »

AI now can deploy not only X-7 against ground targets, but also X-4 & X-7 against air targets, bombers, and, in appropriate situations, against fighters if fire solution exist. No direct order needed for X-4.
If FW-190, armed with X-4, is your opponent, don't fly stright. AI ace & veteran level is pretty dangerous with X-4 at up to 4 - 5 km range.

Both X-4 missiles now on missile key, launches one-by-one.

Also, some loadouts added for F-8 (EDIT: and A-8):
2x Ruhrstahl X-7 + AB 250
2x Ruhrstahl X-7 + SC 250

AI fix for X-7
« Reply #4 on: September 09, 2010, 06:37:30 AM »

I'm glad, somebody appreciates my efforts to improve AI handling of guided weapons.

Looks like improving has no limits, and there is another update, making AI commits stand-off attacks with X-7 against ground targets in more realistic way, range up to 1200-2000 m, depending on AI skill. But, side effect is that, AI now considering X-7 as ground attack weapon, so, order requred to attack air targets with X-7, and, escort needed before strike zone is reached.

Link updated.

FW-190 A/F heavy bombing & night ops. loadouts
« Reply #6 on: October 07, 2010, 03:07:57 PM »

Surfing WWW and come across something like this:

Looks like they usially removed stibilizer ring and even part of tailfins to have guaranteed ground clearance.

That gave me an idea to put some heavy bombs in FW-190A & F loadouts (see first post).


Also, I made some loadouts for FW-190F8 night operations by placing paraflares [4x Luftmarkierungskorper] under wings (not sure this's historically correct).

Amazing, how much can drag this little [butcher]bird.
Any chance of adding drop tanks to all A-8, A-9 variants? I just noticed thanks to Husarderluft (http://www.sas1946.com/main/index.php?topic=9524.msg100511#new) that they come without drop tanks.

 :)
Droptanks? Why not...

================================================================
Twister - do it for me man.

Please add drop-tanks to Fw-190A8, Fw-190A9, Fw-190D Doras, and the Ki-43-I, II's & III's.
and the Me-262A1 and A2 with droptanks and Rocket tubes..
that's all I ask man. No new plane slots.. just modify the original stock aircraft.

Do that, and I'll get you a brand new Tie Fighter and an Imperial Medal .. ::)


=================================================================

Ki-43-I, II & III (w. droptanks)


Fw-190A8 & Fw-190A9 (w.droptanks)


Fw-190D9 (1944 & 1945) (w.droptanks)


Me-262A1 & A2 (w.droptanks / Rocket tubes under the nose racks)

Update: droptanks for FW-190A/F8/9
« Reply #9 on: October 12, 2010, 06:35:26 AM »

Looks like U are so desperate, HusarderLuft,  as trying to bribe me. OPENLY  8)

Ok, I cured a fuel crisys.
Due to lack of required hooks in default models, on loadout screen droptanks looks like its have been just dropped. But its a droptanks after all.


In this update included various weapons combinations with droptanks (awurftanks, in German) for A8/9...


...and for F8. Let's imagine, it is a U1 variant.


For Mistel variant I maked loadout with even 3 droptanks for the long way home.
