Which unit? The F1/F3/F6 Lightning all use a jet MiG pic. The other lightnings are and should be piston aircraft.

Thats the Jet lightning (the English Electric one) that he posted a picture of, and a model of that would be more suitable than the mig one for the F1/F3/F6.

Maybe you changed it in update 2.2 and he doesn't have the latest update (or you changed it for Update 3 :D )?
I am positive that before update 2.2. UK's interceptors "F.1A Lightning" and "F3A Lightning" and a bomber "F.6 Lightning" used the "F6F-5N Hellcat" pic but at the moment I can't check if this was changed in Update 2.2. :-?

Just checked, in version 7.2.2. before mentioned Lightnings use pic num 604 which is a piston plane as he said, while Mig's (15,17,19) use pic num 481. Balth, maybe you were checking this in the corrected .unit file for the new Update 3? :D

I doubt that BG is going to do any changes to the futuristic units while there are still a lot of work to be done in the cold war era units :wink:

On another point the Westland Wyvern doesn’t use the Wyvern model and the F86 Sabre doesn’t use the sabre model.
The Vulcan was one of those data base items not finished before deadline....but new mdb entries are done involving all three V-bombers,
including the Sky Bolt missile fitted version - and one specially designed for fitting with six Sky Bolt strategic missiles!

Wyvern is a casualty of not having enough BG images - same sort of thing with A2D Skyshark - both turboprop attack designs.

F-86....got dumped into single swept-wing image design, as are a great number of other early-transonic designs.

I would suggest, if you or anyone else decide to make this model to apply the "existing ingame rule". As far as I see, all the towed AA (that have somewhat representable model) are depicted as deployed and ready for combat (like "MIM-23 Hawk" or UK's "Rapier Towed" for example). Not only it will look better when firing on enemy but it will also be easier to model without the truck :lol:

Since you use the SA-2 [S-75 Dvina] Guideline as an example and mention Bloodhound SAM, be aware that BG is not going to model any
fixed SAM site missiles; some of these would include Bloodhound, SA-1 Gammon, BOMARC, Nike-Ajax, and several others.

Only "mobile" SAMs will be in the game, according to Bathagor. In some ways unfortunate, because SAM missiles like the Nike Ajax and SA-1 Gammon were at the heart of defending the U.S., NATO and other allies, and the USSR and its allies during the Cold War....aircraft had to figure out how to penetrate these defenses to be effective (but since we have no ECM, maybe its best that way.).

Sent BG Bluerints.com to them way back when they were first doing SR2020 - and looking for more - images.

Would be interested in why they went to a French cg - but it might be a matter of copyright. Would be interested
to hear Bathagor's input......
