Avro 730 Vigilant B.IA/SR. I/II supersonic bomber. One of the many projects axed by Duncan Sandys in the wake of the disasterous 1957 defence white paper was an advanced M=3 stainless steel strategic strike-reconnaissance bomber, the impressive Avro Type 730. A set of three repaints for Kazunori Ito's Avro Type 730 (AVRO730_T1.ZIP), V/C functional and de-blurred as much as posible, FSX compatable (probably FS2004 too) gauges, radio, radar/MTI (this shows AI air and sea targets), autopilot works, all from freeware sources. Afterburners and smoke system effects added. Reworked .air and FDE file with contact points added in the right places for all wheels. Dimensions, weights, MOI, fuel and payload (one station, it's a bomber), range (intercontinental) and canard configuration set per AVRO estimates. M=2.5 cruise, M=3.2 dash at combat weight, combat ceiling 70, 000 ft+. Reverse thrust added to simulate drag chute. Ballanced field performance per Air Staff requirement OR/AST53, aircraft can use 6500 foot runways at AUW and landing at 10% fuel and 15500 lbs bring back. The repaints are 2 9sqn Waddington wing machines, V Force white and late 60's camouflage, and a raspberry ripple RAE machine.

WE177A Target marker dropable object by Chris Skyes, modified with freeware detonation effect by 37charlie. A target marker marks the target with a kiloton range blast and mushroom cloud. This is well, as Kaz does not want his models dropping bombs. So it doesn't. It drops target markers. The...umm.. marker may be utilised in Hi-Hi-Hi level...ummm, marking, Hi-Lo-Hi Dive-toss...marking, and Lo-Lo-Lo laydown..aah...marking strikes.

Install: you will require Kazunori Itos Avro730. You will require this package. Unzip the enclosed zip to your main fsx folder. It is structured to place the right bits in the right places. unzip Kazunori Itos Avro730 to desktop, open it and move the model folder (model.I) inside to microsoft flight simulatorX/simobjects/airplanes/Avro730 Vigilant B.I-SRII
There is a saved flight included, starting in Sadinia, with markers on board. Look in your documents folder for a ' Flight Simulator X Files' folder. The contents go in there. You will also need the freeware IRIS F-35 JSF for effects textures- I do not know which ones they are in my install. Too much crap.
Thats it.

For external use only. Do not use on broken glass or pregnant sheep. Keep away from the presidents of Iran and North Korea.

These files were labouriously recovered after a HD crash, now I`m P-O'd at the whole project, so its as is where is. Modify or what ever all you like, its your problem now.

Only tested in FSXA.
