FS2004 Type 42 Class Destroyers FS9 (1)

Type 42 Class Destroyers for FS9. As someone who is interested not only in aviation, but also in matters maritime, I naturally gravitated towards carrier aircraft. There are a number of aircraft carriers readily available, both freeware and payware, but a dearth of escort vessels. Aircraft carriers rarely sail alone, if at all. I therefore decided to make some escort vessels, originally for my own use. My efforts to date are Leander Class Frigates, County Class Destroyers, Tiger Class Cruisers, Type21 Amazon Class Frigates, and Type22 Broadsword Class Frigates. What follows here are Royal Navy Type 42 class Destroyers. They are not intended to be super accurate models, but rather to be used together with an aircraft carrier as a group of vessels. Included here are four Type 42 Class Destro

They were produced using FSDS 3. 5. 1, and compiled using the FS9 SDK. They have been tested using FS9, and Windows 7 Home edition. The four ships are. HMS Newcastle (D87) a Batch 1 vessel shown in original form with 4. 5in gun, Sea Dart, ships boats, 2 triple torpedo tubes, decoy launchers, and a twin Type 965 AKE-2 radar.. HMS Cardiff (D108) a Batch 1 vessel, shown as later modified with 4. 5in gun, Sea Dart, ships boats replaced with RIB s, two 20mm Oerlikon, two twin 30mm Oerlikon, 2 triple torpedo tubes, decoy launchers, and a Type 1022 radar. HMS Exeter (D89) a Batch 2 vessel, shown with 4. 5in gun, Sea Dart, ships boats, 2 triple torpedo tubes, decoy launchers, two old style 20mm Oerlikons as an interin measure, and a twin Type 965 AKE-2 radar. HMS Edinburgh (D97) a Batch 3 vessel with lengthened hull, shown as later modified with 4. 5in gun, Sea Dart, ships boats replaced with RIB s, two 20mm Oerlikon, two Phalanx CIWS, 2 triple torpedo tubes, decoy launchers, and a Type 1022 radar. Unlike my FSX models these do not have navigation lights, smoke effect or wake effect. These vessels as depicted are probably not historically accurate. I have used information and photographs readily available on the net as a guide. If some of you who have a more detailed knowledge, or even served on them, are concerned at the inaccuracies, then I am sorry, but to me they adequately achieve what I set out to produce. Credits. Produced using FSDS 3. 5. 1 from Abacus. Compiled using Microsoft FS2004 SDK. Static bgl compiled using Library Maker from Instant Scenery 2 by Flight 1 Textures compiled using DXTBmp by Martin Wright. The forums at both www. fsdeveloper. com and www. freeflightdesign. com from which I gained much information without which this could not have been completed. Installation. I have provided separate installation notes. Finally this is provided as freeware. The copyright in the design model is mine. It is not to be used for commercial gain, nor to be uploaded to any site that extracts payment. If anyone wishes to provide repaints please feel free, but ensure that you upload the textures only and not the model. I would also appreciate a copy. If by any chance you wish to use these models in scenery that you create and upload yourself, you may do so freely provided no person or company derives any commercial gain, due credit is given, and they are used unaltered. These files should not harm you or your computer, but you use them entirely at your own risk! Mike Hudson mike. s. hudsonatbtinternet. com Show less...
