Polychop Sa342 Gazelle module data:

http://forums.eagle.ru/showpost.php?...61&postcount=1
Quote:
The module simulates the Airbus Helicopter SA-342M Gazelle Viviane HOT for DCS World.
Systems and Flight model.

All systems and the flight model have been simulated from available data in the manuals and tuned to fit real pilots and technicians feedbacks.

Rotor System
Normal flight phases and autorotation are simulated.
The OA209 airfoil has been taken as a reference and then tweaked to fit the real blades lift and drag. Lift and drag coefficients of the OA209 airfoil have been recorded from a wind tunnel simulation. Then the rotor lift and drag are calculated in real time in game.
Blades flapping is simulated regarding the real time flight parameters.
Rotor Rpm fits the charts when in autorotation.

Fuel System
The fuel system follows the available charts from the manuals.
Fuel consumption is calculated depending on aerodynamics (external loads),
weight, atmosphere density, temperature and altitude, flight phase ...

Flight model
All flight phases are simulated : Hover, Linear flight, turns, autorotation
Vortex effect during hovering is functional.
Ground effect is functional.

Navigation System
All real Gazelle navigation devices are simulated : NADIR, ADF Radio, ADF/Sight/NADIR gauge (horizontal situation, ADF and waypoint indications)

Radio communication system
The AM radio and the Intercom are simulated
The FM radio (PR4G) is also simulated with custom datas and procedures due to its classified aspect.

Sounds
Sounds of the cockpit have been extracted from original videos recorded by a Gazelle technician. Sounds of the Turbine and the rotor are original as well.

Weapons
This gazelle simulation features the HOT3 missile and the needed devices to fire it.
Video display : The TV displays a moving map and the Viviane sight datas
Video command : The Video command allows to use the moving map or to display
the Viviane sight datas.
HOT missile console : it allows to make the missiles up to fire and is linked to the Video command console.
Viviane (APX 397) sighting device : external camera linked to the weapon system.
HOT3 missile : wire guided missile, the user has to guide the missile manually to the target until the impact.

Warning Receiver
The warning receiver system is simulated through the sensors and a display (DRAXX 33)
The real symbology is not used due to its classified aspect, a custom symbology is used instead.

Flare dispenser
The Flaredispenser system includes the Flaredispenser cockpit command (MATRA B0) and the external launcher.

Lights system
Cockpit lights and external navigation/anti-collision lights are simulated.

Damage system
The damage system is simulated and includes external visual damages
(rotor and blades, fuselage, main cockpit glass...)
The effects of the damages are taken in count and change the flight conditions
(aerodynamics, lift, speed ...)
All systems include the damage effects too (electric, fuel, engine ...)

Multi-Crew
The player can swap from the pilot position to the board commander position.
Missiles can be fired only from the board commander position.

Performances
Maximum speed during linear flight fits the charts.
Ceiling fits the charts.
Maximum vertical velocity fits the charts.

The start-up procedure follows the pilot manual.

Autopilot
More than a real Autopilot, the Gazelle features a SAS (Stability Augmentation System)
This feature is simulated as well in the module, and follows the real functions.

Lights
All available lights systems from the real model have been simulated, including navigation lights, formation lights, strobe light, extend-able landing light.
The cockpit features instruments internal light, UV light and a roof lamp with a move-able red lens so you can have a white or a red light.

All this is subject to change and will be updated in time.

New pilot update of the Sa342 Gazelle

http://forums.eagle.ru/showpost.php?...82&postcount=5
Quote:
Hi guys.

Here is a little update of the pilot. The last 2 days I worked on the facial texture. I think right now I have hit the right color tone and placed the first basic color blocking of the helmet.

Next step, details on the helmet and at last the mic.

After that is done I will add some ageing and scratches to the objects.
In basic you see there the internal view, which will be used for the external too, so the textures will stay the same and only be reduced in scale so it does not hit the gpu to much.

cheers
Sven

Polychop Sa-342 Gazelle campaign details.

http://forums.eagle.ru/showpost.php?...92&postcount=2
Quote:
Hi

Yes you will have a fully voiced campaign with the Gazelle.

It's called Operation Dixmude.

It features : 400 audios and 1000 triggers (for the ones who like numbers )
12 missions
Complete pdf scenario and briefing, with maps and all the stuff.
The first chapter (7 first missions) will too be playable in multiplayer up to 4 gazelles.

It's a fully scripted and scenarized campaign, was quite hard to edit.

80% of the missions are night ops missions.

Type of missions :

Night helicopter assault with up to 20 helicopters (french gazelles and UK apache)
Some T/O from the fleet
Covering of an allied armored assault.
Few urban combat
Very low altitude insertion inside the ENI lines, below their SAM radar, in order to strike a precise target.
Recon missions
Escort missions
Daily patrol missions
Special "Survive" missions (you'll see ^^)

Well, everything you can do with the Gazelle is currently in it.

You'll work in pair with an UK apache, callsign Meatboy-1, and will be part of the command wing of the helicopter deployment.

By the way, having created it, I urge you to read twice the pdf and mission briefings, and more than all to already know how to use all your Gazelle systems. It's not a rookie campaign, and missions are not linear at all, which means that a mission won't usually be : T/O from A, destroy on B, come back on A. Many surprises, scenario tricks etc etc. Your really need to know how to fly the helicopter to have a chance to finish the missions. Many beta testers died to provide you this campaign, the goal was to provide you an immersive and (relatively) hard experience. Missions are quite complicated, so again, study your briefings pdf

Sorry for my bad english, happily, I didn't make the translation from french to english

Nicolas

Hello Gents
Happy Easter to everybody, we are on vacation for the Easter hollidays.
We do plan more weapons than the HOT and are working on them already, although only the HOT version will be available at release. We will update the gazelle weapons step by step for free after the release.
About licenses, we got an official approval by the manufacturer AIRBUS HELICOPTERS, which should answer the license question.
