Its out! Royal Air Force Eurofighter Typhoon FGR4

This addon is intended to represent the Royal Air Force's EuroFighter Typhoon FGR4 only. No other national version is included at this time.

A word about "Realism"
It includes some features and capabilities that current serving aircraft have not been given yet. We've taken the liberty of trying to represent a fully capable aircraft that can support the widest possible range of weapons and roles. For the RAF's FGR4 at least this level of capability should only be 2-3 years away according to media sources.

Typhoon FGR4 Feature List

• Custom Afterburner (3 activation options)
    o Auto - Hit full throttle and the afterburner activates. Close the throttle and it shuts off.
    o Throttle + Action Menu - Full throttle and an action menu option appears. Close the throttle and it shuts off.
    o Manual - Menu Only. This is the classic On/Off option.
• 20 Preset Weapons load outs
• Fully working and Practical HUD
    o Custom layout i.e. not BIS standards
    o Accurate Pitch ladders
    o Barometric and Radar Altimeters
• Fully animated landing gear including dampers
• Fully animated airbrake
• Animated In Flight Refuelling Probe
• Accurately modelled control Surfaces
• Improved Flight model (over BIS stock aircraft)
    o AI Friendly handling
    o Excellent Short Field capability
• Scripted Vapour Effects
• Integrated Chaff and Flares (RKSL Flare system)
• Wheel brakes
• Brake Chute
• Fully functioning "Bitchin' Betty"
• ArmA2:Combined Arms compatible
    o RWR enabled
    o Thermal Image maps
    o Locking tones
• Custom Weapons Pack
    o Supports all current UK weapons
    o Some EU weapons more added later

Planned Future Features
• Cockpit Damage and System Warnings
• Dynamic Damage (Still in concept planning)
• Integrated Litening III Targeting Pod (Still in concept planning)
• Air To Air Refuelling (Still in concept planning)


Some things you should understand before you comment:

• No I wont donate it to ACE
• No I havent tested with ACE
• No I wont convert it to ACE
• Textures are NOT final. This is a BETA its not a polished finished version yet.
• Model Meshes are NOT final. There are some areas that still need some work.
• The Typhoon is really this fast. - On small "islands" like Takistan they may seem too fast. You have to remember that this addon was intended to be used on a 40.9x40.9 map we are working on. (see the RKSL YouTube videos.)
• No I wont reduce the speed to fit on a 5x5km map.
• RKSL Flares & System v2.03 are required addons.
• Modification of this addon for any reason is NOT allowed. You want a change, ask us. We will not support "personal versions".
• The RKSL Weapons pack is not complete and is a work in progress.
    o 500lb bombs now have a larger blast radius - 35m radius
    o 1000lb bombs have a large blast radius - 50m radius
• Other National Versions will follow, most likely as plug-ins.
• A Re-skin template will be released at some point in the future

Fantastic! Absolutely brilliant! Last month I saw a Eurofighter at Cosford and I could hear and feel the thrust from those engines shake my liver. You've done an amazing job at recreating the feel of the plane.

Btw Linda, don't be so disheartened, the F-35 will still be a good performing multi-role fighter. The F-35A should have longer range because of the lack of vertical take-off. I imagine that with the weight savings, it would be more nimble also.

The British Empire, bringing peace and prosperity to the whole world, whether or not they wanted it...

1801 - Battle of Algeciras Bay: Spanish ships Real Carlos and San Hermenegildo mistakenly engaged each other in the dark after a British ship sailed between them and fired at both. 1,700 were killed when the two ships exploded.

@pressytcn

I've spent a couple of hours on this now. I'm not sure what exactly it is but I have narrowed the issue down to the Typhoon addon itself. I had originally thought it was due to the Air Weapons pack but I've tested with all the other aircraft I have that use it and they all function just fine.

So its either a model corruption, duplicating proxies which doesn't seem too likely or its config related. Either way Its still going to take some digging to fix.

If you wouldnt mind can you confirm something for me. Go into the editor and take a look at the Typhoon FGR4 (AGAA1) and AGAA2/3/4 versions and tell me if they work ok for you.

Cheers

Rock

Thanks!

That is interesting because one of the pics on the AGAA4 shows Mavericks...but those mavericks aren't mine. They aren't the ones in the RKSL Air Weapons pack. So it could be something else causing this. Are you using any other addons? GLT weapons or CBA etc?

yes i use the f18 superhornet and the f16 that uses glt air,real air etc i've never disabled those i'll try load it up without those on it i always have cba on but im gonna try loading up only the rksl
and see what happens
also i noticed that some mods looses textures when activating antialiancing so that is off

i still get the texture errors when only running cba and rksl i think it has somthing to do with the new patch i never had it with 159
