USEC F117A Nighthawk
by
Dean Hall


Description:
I have been developing an F117A for use by my gaming group, Unity Security Force, and have decided that I will release it to the ArmA community. I'm keen for feedback and testing. Currently the model has successfully been released privately as an Alpha, and I am anticipating having it available as a public beta for this weekend.

As I have not flown the F117A, nor have I even seen it fly, I have struggled to try and recreate a realistic interpretation. Hopefully, thanks to alot of reading and studying alot of similar addons and CAD drawings, I have come up with something close.


Features:
- Framerate Friendly (highest lod less than 5000 tri's)
- Single body texture and another texture for glass
- Normal Mapped, Specular Mapped
- Deployable Weapons Bay (bay opens, weapons come down)
- Fully animated (including canopy, wheels, elevons, etc...)
- High quality LODing work
- "Stealth", unable to be IR targeted, difficult to spot at night
- BIS Quality Icon and Picture in-game
- Long engagement distances
- Operations Manual


Installation:
Extract the pbo file to your ArmA's Addons folder or (as we always recommend) use mod folders to keep your mods organized and to prevent errors in the future.
Check our FAQ for a clear explanation.
