Backstory

The F-201 Sparrowhawk is a fifth-generation, single-seat, twin-engine, all-weather tactical fighter jet. The aircraft was designed by a venture between two American companies, with the goal to build a highly agile and maneuverable air-superiority fighter. The F-201 also has ground attack capabilities, and is able to support various weapons configurations via its conventional pylons, but also its internal weapons bay. The program was marred by accusations of technology theft by the People's Liberation Army Air Force (PLAAF), with claims by criticis that the technology behind the F-201 was used in the J-181 Tiger Hornet.

 

Features

  • Two reskinned Shikra's for the NATO faction
  • Two liveries available in the virtual garage, Camo and Grey
  • Zeus compatability

 

Credits

  • Polpox for helping me out with virtual garage stuff
  • Krytera on A3 Hub for suggesting this

 

NOTES
A BISIGN key is included for those wishing to add the mod to their server or modpacks.
Alternate livery only available in the virtual garage.

UPCOMING

I am currently working on an update that changes the missiles the F-201 uses, from the Opfor missiles to Blufor missiles. I expect it to take my a bit of time, but not too long.

One funny thing i found was because the NATO missiles sometimes have double racks, and with the superior AA missile capacity of the Shikra, you can truly create a SPAMRAAM platform.

Unfortunately CarrierOps compatability requires animation sources for the tailhook, of which there is none to my knowledge, so idk use your imagination.

The stealth varient loadout wise is effectively the same as the non stealth varient with the exception of the wing pylons.

I know, it makes it hard to give CSAT a decent ship based air superiority fighter without just doing a reskin of the BW, or porting something from A2 and reskinning+ changing the model and giving it an animation (I did something similar with the buzzard, *cough* I mean the test plane from the arma 3 samples)

So given that the shikra is not suitable for ship operations and can't be made to be in a believable manner (you could make it vtol, but thats not believable given the model)... Why not just remove the word "Navy" from the texture?
