Hi, awhile ago I posted a bunch of requests for fixes to Soviet nuclear weapons platforms and said I needed to ask for a few more things. I have finally gotten around to getting the info together.
I originally said I would request some changes to the Tu-95Ks, but they are rather miniscule and have a small effect on performance so I won't for now.
I also said I needed to research the fuel loadouts for the Tu-4 and Tu-95M. I haven't been able to find any info on it, so I will leave it up to the DB manager for the loadouts I requested. One thing to make sure though is that the Tu-95M has enough range to get from Anadyr to the entire continental US. It is available in the DB3000 import/export files that come with the game, so if you load it up you can measure the distance.
I also said I would ask for different variants of the Tu-95 and Tu-16 due to one having nuclear weapons capability and the other being a conventional bomber. However there is little tangible difference in the game apart from the loadouts, so this is not necessary. The Tu-16 bomber we have in game should become the Tu-16A and the Tu-95M should become the Tu-95MA however.
Here is my request for the R-9 ICBM.

Mobile Units (Soft)
Weapon Release Authorization [DEFAULT], Propulsion, and Performance Details are identical to DBID #1590 SS-7 Sapwood [R-7]
Fuel should be amended so as to allow for the range given in the General Data section
Default carrier platform is only the one I suggested
Now, DBID #81 MiG-17 Fresco A has an ahistorical issue. It has too much speed. It uses a VK-1F engine, which in real life was not used until the MiG-17F variant. The version DBID #81 represents is the MiG-17 with no letter suffix, the first production variant that was also the most widely produced. It used a VK-1 engine (also with no suffix). However the MiG-15bis also used the VK-1 engine, and because the way CMO models aircraft performance is based on the engine and not the airframe this creates a problem. So I propose that DBID #81 be changed to the MiG-17A. This version was virtually identical to the MiG-17 with no suffix and had identical performance. It used a VK-1A engine which had a better lifetime. This would allow for the MiG-17 to have its historical speed without messing up the MiG-15bis. The following changes will be made-
Rename DBID #81 MiG-17 Fresco A -- Soviet Union [-1991] (Frontal Aviation [VVS]), 1952 to MiG-17A Fresco A -- Soviet Union [-1991] (Frontal Aviation [VVS]), 1952, MiG-17
Create a copy of the Klimov VK-1 #1 engine from DBID #797 MiG-15bis B Fagot, renamed to Klimov VK-1A #1. The data for this new engine is- type is turbojet, and the max speed should be 602 knots. This engine should replace the current engine on DBID #81.
Everything else is unchanged, apart from one thing- the 8x S-21 rocket loadout should be reduced to 2x S-21s.
All of these requests are needed for scenarios I plan to make.
