FSX/P3D Heavy Metal Conversions

Post by Greg » 09 Mar 2019, 16:16

The theme of our next round of FSX/P3D AI aircraft conversions is "Heavy Metal" and features no less than eight new conversion packages going from the E-3 over the KC-135 to the Il-78!

Go to the briefing.

Bravo all involved, I know the -135 series was a large set of unique models and great to see them again in sim.

hello,

it's great, for the C-135 French, the No. 473 crashed in 1972 and it lacks the No. 740, then all the French C-135 are in 31-Cx now and it would just miss the model MPRS with the drogue. Apart from that it's perfect.

My Picture on P3Dv4 ( with my repaint, thank you ) :lol: :lol:

We don't create new paints or do new research for these conversion packs, we just assemble what is already available.

on the FS9 / FSX version of the C-135 FAF, the No. 740 is available, I have recovered to put it on these C-135. so it's good now

Ah okay I now see what you mean. That's an issue you have with Matrix, not with the conversion package because all paints are included there.

Indeed, Matrix doesn't have 740 because there weren't enough flightplans. I'll swap out 473 for 740 in the next update for Europe, but in the end you'll still see as many C-135's as before so most users won't even notice. ;)

ah okay.

I did exactly that, I replaced the C-135 n ° 473 by the n ° 740.

I noticed for these C-135, since I work on it :D :D

Does anyone know where I can find flightplans for the RC-135's that are based at Mildenhall? I know someone made them but I can not find them.

PS: Sorry if this question is in the wrong thread. I wasn't sure where to ask it.

There are no RC-135s permanently based at Mildenhall.

There might have been plans having a deployment at Mildenhall, which is setup as a deployment base, but if so they were part of the Offut package - unless somebody released some separately.
