FSX SP-2 Acceleration
EMBRAER A-29B SUPER TUCANO
Modern Brazil made trainer and light attack aircraft.
FSX SP-2 model has two paint schemes, front seat VC, and selectible underwing stores.
 NOT tested in Vista or DX10.

1)After downloading the zip, locate it, and extract the file to a temp folder.

2)Copy the A-29B Folder over to your FSX Aircraft folder.

3)Copy the cab.a29b  gauges file over to your FSX gauges folder.



NOTAMS:
The underwing stores are controlled by two switches in the VC. For the drop tanks, click on the INT-EXT switch on the left console,
just behind the throttle. In a second or two, the tanks will appear or disappear. Don't forget to reconfigure your fuel levels!

For the rocket pods, the master arm switch is on the panel, just to the left of the HUD unit. Flip up the red cover, then flip the switch underneath.

Yeah, I know the arming switch doesn't move. Couldn't find a switch action and a visibility function that wanted to play together.
On the right MFD, the needles and pointers won't disappear then power is turned off. Something else I could not figure out.

If you don't have the Acceleration add-on, the HUD and UFC displays will not show up. A third-party HUD should fill in nicely.
Rest of the gauges should show up.



CREDITS:
Special credit goes to Josef Sesek, who saved my butt when he gave me the drawings I so desprately needed!

To all who download and enjoy my planes:-)
And to all of the makers of all the tutorials, utilities, tips, like Airwrench, DXTBMP, How-to's  etc. Couldn't do it without you!!


This aircraft was tested in FSX, with Acceleration Add-on
This aircraft was built using the FSX SP-2 SDK

NOT TESTED IN VISTA/DX10!

Flight Model set to HARD
Plane Textures set to HIGH
Screen res set to 1280x1024

2.0GB RAM
19" NEC 1970GX LCD Flat Monitor
NVIDIA GeForce 8600 512MB Vidcard

Enjoy!
This model was built to the best of my skills, knowledge, and simply to my own tastes and standards.
If something is "missing", or "wrong", oh well, you got it for a good price:-) No need to email me about bugs, I know 'em!

DO NOT post or upload to any site or CD, or any other media. And in any event DO NOT try to make money on this package. That means NO fees or charges to access!

I ONLY upload to Sim-Outhouse.com, and Flightsim.com. If you find and download my planes from anywhere else I WILL NOT support it!
Better to ask who ever uploaded  my plane.
 
I have nothing against other sites,(well, just the pirate assholes!) I just want to keep things simple, and easy to track.
Good Luck,

Editorial

The Super Tucano is one of those aircraft that immediately caught my attention, especially as soon as I get the chance to try it out with this mod. It’s an aircraft that I always had a lot of time for, so how did I find this latest incarnation of it?

Designs

The overall quality of the design and how it looks is not – or it should not be – in dispute. The detail of the model is excellent and although I never got to try it with DX10, it still looked pretty damn excellent. This Brazilian aircraft was one that carries a rather distinctive look and it comes across excellently here.

From the shape of the rocket pods to the way that the underwing stores look – and are managed – this aircraft is very easy to look at and nice & simple to fly.

This comes with a really specific look and this helps to sell the whole image of the aircraft as a whole. Not only does it fly with the same style that you would expect from a fighter jet – nippy and powerful – it looks like it could go a few rounds in a dog fight, as well!

I was really impressed by its overall look and composition. It felt fitting for an aircraft that spends so much time in the air doing war to have such a cutting, bruising look to it.

By the way, make sure you have Acceleration if you want to use this or you will have major compatibility problems with the HUD and UFC displays – they just won’t appear. You could use a third-party mod, but the originals are excellent and perfect for this mod.

Performance

I tested this out on a pretty decent rig and found that it seemed to manage itself OK throughout, with very few performance troubles. It’s relatively easy to use but I did have to make sure that I used high level texture settings in the flight simulator settings themselves to make sure that the model gets the right level of justice.

I would have to say that it flies just as you may expect – it looks excellent, it flies with precision and it can be quite fearsome at the best of times. I would happily recommend that both fans of the model and people without any knowledge of the Super Tucano take the time to download this and try it out.

Again, it’s a bit over the top at first, but you should have no problems in getting used to it thanks to a rather welcoming learning curve.

Unfortunately, the sound of engines don't work on P3D V4.5 but to make the HUD work just put the gauges files on the gauges directory of the game.

Fantastic model. I had no expectations and downloaded because externals were so well done. Blown away by the flight model though, wonderful work. Only thing for me running P3d is no HUD but that's easily sorted.

Can you gyus make this plane integrated with VRS TacPack? Sorry for my bad english

Wanaka109Mon, 18 May 2015 13:17:15 GMT

This is an excellent plane and I love flying it.

However, I've found someone who has ripped this plane from FSX and is selling it in a game called Second Life. You can view images of it here: https://marketplace.secondlife.com/p/A29-B-Super-Tucano-v12/5988507

Such a sad individual that would steal something that's free and awesome, and then make profit from it. I hope Piglet does something about it.

This device is amazing truth and deserves my deepest thanks to the author, who was generous enough to provide the excellent work that we are enthusiasts.

Again thank you very much. Kind regards friendly.
