FRENCHPACK VERSION 3 AVAILABLE HERE : https://forums.eagle.ru/showthread.php?t=255035

 

 

To install : Unzip the archive, take the folder which is inside it called "Frenchpack" and copy paste it in your SAVED GAMES/DCS WORLD OPEN BETA/Mods/tech folder. If Mods/tech folder don't exist, create them with the exact same writing

 

Hi everybody, ;)

 

It is a great pleasure for the FrenchPack Team to bring you the Version 0.2 of the French vehicle Pack for DCS World.

 

Version 0.2 contains no less than 17 vehicles coming from the French forces, entirely combined Arms ready, and whose specifications fit at the best the original gear.

 

Playing combined arms or simply missionmaking, you’ll now have at your disposal the capacity to deploy a fully coherent armored group, ranging from heavy armor to anti-aircraft system, anti-tank system, and logistic.

The little new ones ! !

The AMX-10RCR !

Both available in its classic and SEPAR version, which features an IR jammer pod EIREL and additionnal armor kit, the AMX-10RCR est the key model of this update. Featuring a 105 mm canon able to shoot both kinetic penetrator shells and explosives ones (respectively 30 and 12), a 7.62 coaxial MG, and thermal imagery on both the gunner and the commander sight, the AMX-10RCR will get everyone quiet down there. Mounted on a relatively light hull, although the SEPAR version is quite close from the AMX-30, it uses a "tracks-like" steering allowing it to turn in place, and to reach 85 km/h for the RCR and 75 km/h for the SEPAR. You wanted armed recon, here it is !

Artillery is finally here !

With the MO120RT, the french deployment now carries a nice artillery punch capability, up to 15 km in range. Coming in two versions, static and carried by a VAB, its 120 mm shells effect is quite close from 155 mm ones. Lower your head !

 

____________________________________________

 

AAA !

The 53T2 canon, which is the static equivalent to the 20 mm already featuring the VAB T20/13, too arrives on DCS. With a range up to 1500 to 2000 m, it can shoot both 20 mm explosif or AP. It too can be carried on the TRM2000 truck.

 

____________________________________________

 

Logistics !

Yay !

 

The TRM2000 seen above is to declined in an infantry version, and a fuel one, to allow you to rearm your troops on the battlefield (not too close from it still, they are very durable)

The AMX-30B2

 

 

e36127d30b7a495e9ef19f0340b846895b7780e8.jpg

 

 

You always dreamt about rolling on your enemies while shooting everywhere ? The AMX-30B2 should fit you well. With its high pressure 105 mm canon, it is able to neutralize a T-72 tank up to 2500 m thanks to its kinetic penetrator (OFL) flying above 1500 m/sec. But it doesn’t mean that it forgets lighter targets. Having explosive shells, a 20 mm coaxial canon whose elevation is independant from the main gun, as well as a roof mounted 7.62, the AMX-30B2 is the master piece of the battleground, allowing a rapid and deadly fire on the opponent.

 

___________________________________________

 

The ERC-90

281c03efb2f3ff495c12c077100a57ea21318c9c.jpg

 

 

Because recon can sometimes be boring, because you don’t envisage to cross the whole Middle East in a shitty car, the Armée de Terre is proud to bring to you the ERC-90D F4. True heir of the colonial cavalry, it is both quick, light, and carries a huge firepower thanks to its 90 mm canon which shoots a kinetic round able to get through 320 mm of steel from 2000 m, allowing it to destroy any tank up to the T-55 below this range. Still, beware of the recoil ! The ERC-90 only weighs 9 tons, and so is fast and maneuverable, being able to reach a top speed of 110 km/h on road.

 

_____________________________________________

 

The VAB MEPHISTO

725d1bd8b46705897b55a9e6fe96b11983c5d152.jpg

 

Who said that you needed a tank to kill other tanks ? With the VAB MEPHISTO, you’ll have at your disposal a rolling turret which, unfortunately for the bastard who’s facing you, is able to fire up to 4 HOT2 missiles, making it virtually able to kill any tank on the battlefield. Still, beware, as long as guiding those missiles will need a real expertise. Like all VAB except the VIB, it is amphibious, and should be used in couple with the VIB T20/13.

 

_______________________________________________

 

The VIB T20/13

 

7966c0dd60c16ee02b23d6ae6f611dc32cf59de1.jpg

 

 

 

You’re the kind of people who shoots before speaking, enjoying the bloody spectacle of burning villages ? You feel a deep and sadistic pleasure in ambushing helicopters ? You like making suffer ? You like suffer ? The VIB is made for you ! Featuring a 20 canon made by Nexter, the VIB purpose is to ensure an heavy fire support on the battlefield, working in pair with the VAB MEPHISTO. His canon uses two types of ammunition : explosive and penetrating, granting you the ability to destroy most light armored vehicles met on the battlefield. Its anti-helicopter capacity will be a precious help for your heavier units.

The VAB .50 and the VAB.

7f71fd671ac5618c0f585611351a1a28fa837224.jpg

 

Basic versions of the previous vehicles, their purpose is to bring both a light fire support and to bring infantry on site. The classic VAB too features for DCS a logistic capacity allowing it to rearm all the other vehicles. No more will you be left you and your regiment with only one waters. No more. Promise.

 

_______________________________________________

 

The VBL family

 

ed2183f3154903b004a288e18268f1d49eeb6bbd.jpg

 

Yes. I know. Everything needs a beginning, including 3D. The VBL is the Hummer of the rich ! the La Ferrari of the private ! The coffin of the … Heum… Well.

 

The VBL is a light vehicle capable of ensuring light recon and troop transport on the battlefield. Coming in unarmed logistic variant, AANF 7.62 variant, and cal.50 variant, it is the basic car you’ve ever dreamt of when it comes to kick talibans asses.

 

_______________________________________________

 

The TRACMA

 

0b26fc3f7f0da6ba5123dcda96e492075523f4c4.jpg

 

Yes.

 

YES !

 

Contain your tears ! I know you were expecting him ! It’s a pleasure for us to deliver you the first authentic plane tractor simulator on DCS World ! Still without the tracting part but hey… You can… Roll with it ! Up to 35 km/h. And you can crush others player’s planes with it ! You can even act like as a real French and cause a strike on the base with it !

 

____________________________________________

 

Aaaand it’s not yet over ! Soon other iconic vehicles will come on the sim ! You always dreamt of retreating like a boss, having a reverse speed equal to the forward one ? The AMX-10RCR will be for you ! You’re a more sneaky bastard whose sole pleasure is to kill your teammates ? AMX Roland ! You like the authenticity of a real, combat proven, colonial vehicle ? AML-90 ! You spend your nights dreaming of having a bigger one than your girlfriend’s previous dude ? AUF1 and Caesar ! And then. Then, flying things which sound very… Feline.

 

Wishing you all the best and good flights !

 

The FrenchPack Team.

Well I am a bit late to the party and just discovered this new mod. It seems truly amazing and went right away to download it. Unfortunately there's no readme.txt with the actual steps to install it.

 

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks !

computor/c :/ user/ your name/saved games/dcs/mods/tech put the file in there

 

outstanding work guys thanks

 

Well that's odd, this is exactly what I did and the mod does not appears in the installed mod section in DCS. I did transfer the whole archive in the tech folder without unpacking it. Is this the right way to do it ? Thanks for the help)

No. Unzip your archive. Then you get a folder named "Frenchpack" inside it, and this is the one you put in Mods/tech.

 

I'll try that as soon as I'm back. Thanks for your help !

The mod is fantastic !

 

Do you have any roadmap to communicate about future addition to your French Pack ? I wish some Crotale and Mistral systems were included to defend french occupied air bases :x

Glad to know this is a work in progress and that you are planning to add more equipment and vehicules. This is really a very good news for people looking to recreate situations as credible as possible.

I was wondering if you would offer UN skins for the french pack. France has been pretty active with UN mandates in the 80's and 90's.

It may be done this summer. But it is quite time consuming to do skins, it's not simply like with standard DCS skins where you photoshop layers. There I have to go back to the software and create brand new textures. And well, simply have a look to how many files there are in the textures zip to understand ^^

 

For now I'm working on a new leclerc, credits for base model go to OFRP, this is the base I'm going to work on, I will have to remake most of it as there are many many odd things (old file, impressive amount of useless vertices which brings the model to 1.6 million triangles while a DCS model should be around 100-200 k max)

 

https://reho.st/view/self/33e09f86995781ef823b6ebaf573b3a8071da5c9.jpg

 

Difference with the already ingame model would be :

 

- Far better model

- Far better textures

- Real armor datas

- Real shell datas

- Commander sight

 

Then I will remake the VBL, and add an experimental Mistral version, a TRM-2000 Mistral, and finally a Crotale NG.

 

This will be all for the Frenchpack as far as I am concerned.

 

Once all of this will be done, then I will focus on skins.

With the last 3 vehicles (VBL, TRM and Crotale NG), I think this will be pretty much everything we could have ever wanted for DCS.(don't know if this is easy but if you are modeling the mistral tripod on the trm2000, maybe a stand alone mistral tripod is a quick possible add-on? If not, no worry).Thanks Dimi for this awesome work.

That's some impressive work and very time consuming as well. Thank you for providing what should be already in the game.

 

I'll wait for your next updates and if you can't invest time on UN liveries, that's fine, we'll have anyway a very comprehensive french OOB for DCS. The UN liveries would be the icing on the cake))
