Here is my New Flight Model and Performance Rework for DC Designs F-15C/D Eagle & F-15E/I Strike Eagle aircraft.
I designed New Flight Model for F-15C/D Eagle and F-15E Strike Eagle and F-15I Ra’am, because the default is too strange and mess. Therefore, I decide to start this flight model and performance reworks.
Here is rework list what I can remember
◈ Completely reworked and redefined Flight Model & Characteristics
◈ Reference Performance Target of Reworked New Flight Model
: Real-Life F-15C/D/E/I (A-A Loadout Drag Profile)
▷ Take off and Landing Performance Simulation
▷ Level Flight Acceleration above 10,000 feet
▷ Combat Maneuvering Capabilities
▷ Aerodynamic Center, Weight Distribution, Moment of Inertia Characteristic
▷ Maximum Take Off Weight and Loadout Weights
▷ Angle of Attack and Stall Characteristics
▷ Plus, Stability and Recovery
◈ Almost reworked Engine Performance and Characteristics
▷ Performance reworked as F100-PW-220 & F100-PW-229 (Thrust and Fuel Consumption)
▷ Simulate Military Thrust (90% RPM in the game, but 94% to 96% RPM in real-life F100-PW-220, and 97% in real life F100-PW-229)
▷ Simulate Afterburner (Thrust and Fuel Consumption increasing)
▷ Simulate Fuel Consumption for 60% Idle RPM to 90% MIL RPM, plus Afterburner
▷ JFS Engine Startup Time
▷ Response times and ETCs
◈ Also, others fix and reworked
▷ Flight Path Marker Location Redefine
▷ Landing Gear reworked to solve unstable taxing
▷ Add Landing/Taxing Light (This can see in the cockpit)
▷ Plus tons of fixes…but I can’t remember everythings…
◈ Reference Data
▷ Technical Order Documents about F-15A/B/C/D/E
▷ NASA Research Reports
▷ USAF Flight Test Reports
▷ Other Technical Research Papers and Reports
▷ + Personal Experience
*Served over 2 Years in Air Force for F-16C/D Block 52 Maintenance Department (Ret. Staff Sergeant)
**Ph.D of Aerospace Engineering
It is F-15E only, not yet for F-15C.
Now It supports New Flight Model and Engine Simulation Model for F-15C/D Eagle and F-15E Strike Eagle and F-15I Ra’am.
Have a nice day everyone.
