[WIP] F-35F Standalone
Ex3B posted a topic in ARMA 3 - ADDONS & MODS: DISCUSSIONVery WIP version here: https://steamcommunity.com/workshop/filedetails/?id=1583193287 Still needs: 1) improved textures 2) properly configured hitpoints so that the engine, sensors, controls, etc can be damaged while the plane hasn't been completely destroyed ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- So I noticed, years after Arma 3 has been out, there are still very few mods for an F-35B, and none are standalone. Alternatives: So I decided to try to make my own port, and in the process to modify the model to be a bit more F-35-like and a bit less X-35-like, and also to make some changes to stats that are simply judgement calls So at the moment, I've got a standalone VTOL F-35 with a working targeting camera, sensors suite+stealth properties, dynamic loadout system, and animations working. Hitpoints to allow subsystems to be damaged are partially implemented. I will try to make the textures look better soon (it is way too bright under mid day direct sunlight). Misc. Pics: I'm trying to give it a more versatile weapon's loadout, so that it won't just be limited to a pair of bombs (or SDB racks) and a pair of AMRAAMs. To this end, I've made a 4x Scalpel rack for internal carriage, a 2x AMRAAM rack for internal carriage, and a new type of anti-radiation missile for internal carriage. It also has 2 weapon pylons on the doors that rotate outward when fired (similar to the Blackfoot's pylons), so that it can plausibly employ direct DAR and DAGR rockets. The new missile I'm dubbing the AGM-99 ALARM (Advanced Light Anti-Radiation Missile. It's significantly weaker than the HARM (in terms of damage from a direct hit, as well as indirect blast damage and radius), it takes 3 hits to destroy a Zsu-39 Tigris, but it will take out the static SAM radars and the Nyx Radar variant in 1 hit. I had thought about giving it a 25mm internal gun (files for such are in game, but not well balanced- however for a space and weight limited V/STOL model, a smaller 20mm cannon makes more sense. Also since it can fire 70mm rockets for use in CAS, a heavier hitting cannon isn't needed so much for taking out armored targets. Its getting the same 20mm cannon as the blackfoot (which should be a 3 barrel version of the good old M61 Vulcan, "the world's lightest 20 mm Gatling cannon") with 300 rounds. I've also added a new missile type, a smaller version of the HARM, the AGM-99 ALARM (Advanced Light Anti-Radiation Missile. I'm going to try and tweak its blast so that 1 is not sufficient to take out a Tigris/Cheetah, but it will kill static radars and Nxy recons (Currently its direct and indirect hit damage is 1/3 of the HARM's, and its indirect hit range is just above 1/3... haven't tested if this will knock out a Cheetah/Tigris, or if a 2nd missile is needed yet). Each of the two outer pylons supports: 1x Bim-9x/1xASRAAM/1xAMRAAM D/1xALARM/1x12 DAR Pod/1x12DAGR pod Each of the two inner pylons supports: 1-2x AMRAAM D/1-2x ALARM*/4x SDB/4x Scapel/1x GBU-12/1x CBU-85 *I'm considering removing the 2x ALARM racks, and the 1x ALARM option from the outer pylons, so that it can only carry 2x ALARM, as opposed to up to 6 currently. I'm considering making a 3-4x ASRAAM rack for the inner bays, to be something like a MSDM/CUDA type missile: Example loadouts could be: A2A: 2x BIM-9, 4x AMRAAM CAS: 24x DAR, 4x scalpel, 4x SDB Mixed: 2x BIM-9, 4x scalpel, 4x SDB Mixed: 24x DAGR, 4x AMRAAM SEAD: 24x DAGRs and 4x ALARM Top speed is the same as the Black Wasp for now (I think I'll scale it back a little). Radar stealth and range is the same as the black wasp. Its IR stealth is a 20% reduction in detection range (a 0.8 multiplier). Its IR sensor is the same as that found on the A-164 wipeout, except not limited to view distance settings (I don't know why they do that for vanilla assets ).
