Alenia C-27J Spartan for FlightGear - GPL v.2

Postby cobe571 » Mon Jul 29, 2019 8:34 pm

I'm glad to introduce another 3D model,

This Alenia C-27J Spartan take the alpha 0.1 status development in the early of June 2015 with an initial YASim FDM made by Emmanuel Baranger. Its like to fly a cargo right now. Slow as a navy cargo in the same way really stable. Many things needs to be implemented. Instruments first of all. Cause there's none. Just a working Yoke. Even another FDM like JSBSim will be very appreciated for this bird. But I don't know anything about that kind of development as I already said into another post. Has not moving doors. Has not a switch livery system because at that time I don't thought about to create many liveries for this airplanes. The UVmap layout in facts is still inaccurate. Anyway without exceptions I want to give this 3D model to the FlightGear Flight SImulator because I think is the best platform to develop your dreams if you love to fly. And most important thing you can fly alot of good airplanes and helicopters too right now. I want to give some of my 3D models I made over the years to this special community; with the great hope they will be developed many more by entusiast developers in the near future. The Alenia C-29J Spartan is one of them. Into this model I spent alot of time. So is precious to me.

Kind regards

Patrizio

*The Alenia C-27J Spartan is a military transport aircraft developed and manufactured by Leonardo's Aircraft Division (formerly Alenia Aermacchi until 2016). It is an advanced derivative of Alenia Aeronautica's earlier G.222, originally designed by the italian aeronautical engineer Giuseppe Gabrielli (C-27A Spartan in U.S. service), equipped with the engines and various other systems also used on the larger Lockheed Martin C-130J Super Hercules. In addition to the standard transport configuration, specialized variants of the C-27J have been developed for maritime patrol, search and rescue, C3 ISR (command, control, communications, intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance), fire support and electronic warfare and ground-attack missions.

In 2007, the C-27J was selected as the Joint Cargo Aircraft (JCA) for the United States military; these were produced in an international teaming arrangement under which L-3 Communications served as the prime contractor. In 2012, the United States Air Force (USAF) elected to retire the C-27J after only a short service life due to budget cuts; they were later reassigned to the U.S. Coast Guard and United States Special Operations Command. The C-27J has also been ordered by the military air units of Australia, Bulgaria, Chad, Italy, Greece, Kenya, Lithuania, Mexico, Morocco, Peru, Romania and Slovakia.

Nice, thank you! Hopefully someone with a history of this aircraft or a passion for it will help improve it. I'm sure such a beautiful and detailed model will go a long way to encourage someone.

Grazie.

I hope to be able to complete this plane. He has been waiting for several years. When I was much younger I flew a few flights on the G.222 of the 46th Brigata Aerea and I fall in love with this kind of plane. I still remember the din of the engines sitting on those orange nets... Hard to forget.

I will not ask anyone for anything. Only those who want to participate in the project will be part of it. I don't even dare to propose it to other developers I know and I've already met, because I already know very well how busy they are in their respective projects.

Maybe someone will look at it in the future ... For now things are like that and I can't complain. Because I have at least the possibility of being able to show the things I've done in these years and I've never shown here on this Forum.

Are things done right or wrong? It is not for me to say. Certainly they have not yet been completed, and it is for this reason that I put them under the eyes of those who know more than me.

Kind regards

Patrizio.

Hello Dear Josh,
That words said by you are more than a compliment. Sorry if I didn't answer you first. I wrote to you privately to explain the reason. Thanks again.

Patrizio.
