Big update to East German faction.
Some changes off the top of my head:
-Fixed some unit icons (T-72Ms now look like T-72Ms and not "T-72BV" with ERA the East Germans didn't have)
-Fixed some formation errors
-MFRW RM-70 now correctly has an extra 40 rockets, instead of an extra 40 launchers over the BM-21.
-S-8KOM and S-8OFP2 (HEAT and HE-Frag versions respectively) named accordingly
-The LuftStreitKräfte has been completely reformatted:
-MiG-17F and MiG-17PF introduced but are only available until 1983.
-MiG-21 loadouts adjusted: MiG-21MF with 96x S-5K, MiG-21MF with 4x S-24B, MiG-21F with 64x S-5K, MiG-21M with 32x S-5K and 2x AS-7 Kerry, MiG-21PFM with 2x 250kg bombs, MiG-21PFM with 2x PB-250 retarded bombs, MiG-21PFM with 2x S-24, MiG-21SPS/K with Gsh-23L, 2x AS-7 Kerry and 32x S-5K, MiG-21Bis with Gsh-23L, 2x AS-7 Kerry, and 2x 250kg bombs, MiG-21Bis with Gsh-23L, 2x AS-7 Kerry, and 2x PB-250 retarded bombs.
-Overabundance of MiG-23 variants simplified
-Four loadouts now exist for MiG-23s: MiG-23MF with 4x AS-7 Kerry, MiG-23ML with 128x S-5K, MiG-23BN with 2x AS-7 Kerry and 2x 500kg bomb, and MiG-23BN with 4x 500kg bomb
-Su-7s of all variants removed: none were present in 80's Frontal Aviation.
-Su-17s have been universally renamed Su-22.
-Su-22 (Strike) loadouts: Su-22 with 6x RBK-500 CBU, Su-22 with 288x(?) S-5K,Su-22 with 9x S-24B.
-Su-22 (SEAD) loadout: Su-22 with 4x AS-12 Kegler
-Su-22 (Level Bomber) loadouts: Su-22 with 6x 500kg bombs, Su-22 with 6x PB-250 retarded bombs, Su-22 with 6x RBK-500 Cluster Bombs
-IL-28 (Level Bomber) loadouts: IL-28 with 4x 500kg bombs, IL-28 with 8x 250kg bombs, IL-28 with 8x PB-250 retarded bombs, all IL-28 aircraft are only available until 1984.
-MiG-29 9-13s have been removed: they would have been used strictly in an air defense role. This also eliminates your only Night-Capable, All-Weather aircraft option! Good luck!
-(Some) Dates corrected
-Introduced SC/CV Mi-9
-Introduced UH Mi-8T
-Removed UH Mi-17
-Reintroduced AH Mi-24Ds.
-Mi-24D loadouts: Mi-24D with 4x AT-2b Swatter and 64x S-5K, Mi-24D with 4x AT-2b Swatter and 40x S-8KOM, Mi-24D with AT-2b Swatter and 20x S-13OF, Mi-24D with 80x S-8OFP-2
Vanilla Helicopter Squadron removed.
The Helicopter formations have been replaced by their real-world formations, per Relikte.
By 1990 there were two East German Attack Helicopter Squadrons, or Kampfhubschraubergeschwader, KHG-3 and KHG-5, each assigned to their respective districts (3. Armee and 5.
Armee). The template you obtain in game includes 4x Mi-9, 4x Mi-2, 24x Mi-24D, and 12x Mi-8TB.
To get KHG-3 from this template, spawn the Kampfhubschraubergeschwader, delete one flight of Mi-24D, then remove two more subunits from the remaining Mi-24D flights.
Then, add two more Mi-8TB flights and delete a single subunit from each for a total of 19x Mi-24D and 16x Mi-8TB.
In 1990, KHG-5 obtained a new Squadron, or Staffel of 12x Mi-24P. FCRS takes place in 1989, but it's reasonable to believe this sale would be pushed faster as the Soviets prepared for war in the alternate timeline.
To get KHG-5 from this template, spawn the Kampfhubschraubergeschwader, then spawn four flights of Mi-24P, subordinating three of them under the first to create the squadron.
Lastly, delete two Mi-8TB subunits.
Finally, Transporthubschraubergeschwader 34 is represented in it's entirety with 22x Mi-8T transport helicopters.
East German updated faction is included. To install, simply extract to the Data folder.
