The JKPFA LIB with Mods includes the russian T-50 PAK-FA stealth fighter aircraft and shape
& the US F-35 stealth fighter aircraft and shape too...

There're also - russian sams designation like S-300PMU2 FAVORIT (NATO reporting name SA-20 Gargoyle)
and S-400 TRIUMF (NATO reporting name SA-21 Growler)
Pantsir-S1 (NATO reporting name SA-22 Greyhound) can be driven by the player
- chinese sams designation like HQ-9 and HQ-16...and much more...

I invite you to try this LIB who may be regarded as a serious update of the JKPFA LIBS series from ZEPHYR

Lots of work there...

Those new shapes are great for JKPFA Lib.

However further work is require to truly represent the correct shapes of those aircraft or vehicles...

The angles need to be corrected, as well as the visibility of some of those polygons, and the F-35 shape has no afterburner. I dont think that can be corrected because the base shape didnt have one...

Skins need vast improvements. They are very low detailed and not visibly correct for some of the vehicles or aircraft...

Still... new is good. And its a heck of a lot better than what was used previously to represent new items...

I like alot of the mods made as well as the shapes. Some things that may need to be addressed I caught.

The F-14D is armed with the NR-30 instead of the M61.

The F-35 is powerful on full burners but really lags on even 100% military thrust. Dry thrust for the F135 is around 28,000 I believe. Not sure if that's the number used.

The F-20 Tigershark should have TWS for BVR combat.

The tanks are alittle too aggressive with Anti-Air. I was surprised to be getting tagged by tank fire at beyond visual range.

I miss the F-15C Golden Eagle. : P

While failing F-22A bought in sufficient numbers, the F-15C/D Eagle air defense will have to remain in service at least until 2030 to ensure a critical missions of the US Air Force, protection of the national airspace.

A great feat for a device that has made its first flight at the beginning of the seventies .US Air Force has already commissioned several studies to determine to Boeing until end how it is possible to extend the life of the F-15C , from the factory with a potential estimated at 8,000 flying hours.

180 Golden Eagles would be affected by this initiative.
Their weapons system (radar, missile, tamper) will be upgraded to enable them to remain credible face the new generation of combat aircraft from Russia and China.

You can simulate the F-15C Golden Eagle putting AIM-120D & AIM-9X missiles...

Certainly this LIB is perfectible, but I do not think Zephyr has time to change some missing features...

Doesn't the Golden Eagle include AESA so it could technically fry an opponents radar? I just remember the F-15C GE having the EM attack like the F-22 Block 30.

The Chinese Stealth fighter is also supposed to have it, but since it isn't in production yet we cant be certain which radar it will install on the assembly line...

At the heart of the modernization program of the F-15C/D Golden Eagles, the installation of a new radar.By replacing the current radar APG-63(V)1 to mechanical scanning, Raytheon has developed the APG-63(V)3, a system with an active electronically scanned antenna (AESA).

A new technology that will increase the radar range, while making them more discreet emissions and possibly to jam enemy electronic systems.

By 2000, 18 F-15C based in Elmendorf, Alaska, were already equipped with a preliminary version of this radar, called APG-63(V)2; this project had allowed for a first phase of operational evaluation and refine the needs of pilots of the USAF.

For three years, these aircraft were based on Kadena Air Base, Japan.
It is on this American base Pacific that will be delivered the first F-15C/D modernized.
About fifty of them should be available by 2013, according to the USAF.
This location is not by chance: Kadena hosts regular detachments F-22 that come to train to fight against future threats that could represent the new Chinese aircrafts.

This might help...

AN APG-63(V) & APG-82(V)
David Rockwell
5 May, 2015

AN APG-63(V) & APG-82(V)
The AN/APG-63(V) is the fire control radar for the F-15A/B/C/D Eagle fighter. A modified version, the AN/APG-70, superseded the APG-63 on the F-15E Strike Eagle, but was then itself to be replaced with the APG-63(V)1, as part of a comprehensive APG-63 upgrade. The APG-63(V)1 LRIP contract was awarded in August 1997, with full rate production beginning in 2002. Japan and South Korea also chose the APG-63(V)1 (Japanese license production by MELCO was just beginning in2006).

Image

In 2004 the Air Force changed its plans to upgrade 400 F-15s with the APG-63(V)1, and instead (following the success of the Active Electronically Scanned Array [AESA] APG-63 (V)2) decided to add the APG-63(V)3, essentially a combination of the APG-63(V)1 with an AESA antenna. However, production of (V)3 upgrades for the USAF and Air National Guard (ANG) has been limited, with Singapore’s new F-15SGs getting the (V)3 first.

U.S. Forecast
The USAF has long planned to keep its F-15C/Ds in service until at least 2025, alongside the F-22. In March 2014, the Air Force proposed retiring 51 additional F-15Cs, leaving about 179 F-15C/Ds in service, but final numbers (which will also include about 48 US Air National Guard F-15C/Ds), as well as retirement dates, are still uncertain pending future budget decisions. All these aircraft are funded in the February 2015 (FY16) budget or planned to get the new APG-63(V)3. With the F-22 dead, the Air Force can ask for F-15 AESA radar funding without any fear of it jeopardizing its highest priority.

The 220 F-15Es the Air Force plans to keep in service through at least 2030 will get an even newer radar which entered development in FY09, the APG-63(V)4 Radar Modernization Program (RMP) radar, now designated AN/APG-82(V)1, which replaces the APG-63(V)1 back-end with a modified AN/APG-79 radar back-end from the F/A-18E/F Super Hornet, and also adds an AESA antenna. APG-82 test flights began in January 2011, and APG-82-equipped USAF F-15Es began flying in July 2014.

International Forecast
Internationally, despite the political fallout over recent events in the region, the Saudis have wanted a new batch of F-15s for some time. Saudi Arabia’s F-15SA order has now been confirmed and production has begun with the APG-63(V)3. Thus, our radar production forecast lines will continue in force for both the APG-63(V)3 (Saudi Arabia and the USAF/ANG) and the APG-82(V)1 (USAF F-15Es).

Teal Group no longer sees a good possibility for new F-15 buyers. We have also removed major follow-on orders for existing customers. But though Boeing’s new-platform production line may be shutting down, there is more than a decade ahead of major Raytheon radar upgrades. South Korea was offered the APG-63(V)3 as part of Boeing’s stealth enhanced F-15SE Silent Eagle bid for the F-X III program, so Teal Group expects the new AESA radars will be releasable to all current F-15 users.

Japan has reportedly expressed interest in a fleet-wide radar upgrade for its F-15J (F-15C/D); today this would be the APG-63(V)3, but a few years out the APG-82 may prove to be the superior radar (thought probably still more expensive).

Near-term radar upgrades are also likely for Saudi Arabia – probably already planned and probably to be produced in parallel with or immediately following F-15SA radar production. The APG-82 would be the likely replacement for the F-15S’s APG-70, as for the USAF F-15E radars. In early 2015, unconfirmed reports indicated the Israeli Air Force would upgrade (or planned to upgrade) its Boeing F-15I strike aircraft, including replacement of the APG-70 radar, also moswe t likely with Raytheon’s APG-82. The remaining F-15 customers – Israel (earlier versions), Japan, and South Korea – are also likely to begin upgrades to AESA antennas in the next decade, and have included a healthy “Undetermined” forecast line.

Note that all our international AESA upgrade Production Forecasts are speculative – no schedules have been publically announced – and actual production schedules will likely vary from our forecasts. Unless AESA transmit/receive (T/R) module costs decrease drastically, all the various APG-63 and APG-82 upgrades will be worth about $6 billion in our forecast period. This will make F-15 radars one of the world’s largest radar programs over the next ten years – much more valuable than what may eventually be a greater number of (less expensive) F-16 AESA upgrades.
