    Lockheed S-3 Viking - The Sequel Thread

    Dino said it. Some one has to initiate a new thread on his upcoming S-3.
    I can't wait. Well I guess I'll have to though.

    Thanks for the reminder. It will be great to have a nice Hoover in FSX!

    Ok, above are some screenshots of the project as it is today... for those who do not know, in the past months I have been working on a S-3B Viking for FSX+Tacpack and compatible with P3D... unfortunately (or or fortunately in these times), recently my job is taken most of my time (and life force) and the result is that the S-3 is way beyond schedule: at the moment, the only thing that can be considered complete is the external model, while pretty much everything else is still WIP.

    Long story short: I have no idea when it will be released - but it will take months for sure.

    Real life always takes priority, as FSX development from a homeless shelter tends to be even slower.

    Dino,

    Well said, jmbiii.

    I have thoroughly enjoyed your Tomcat and Goshawk for years. Take your time. I'm sure the S-3 will be top-notch as well.

    Dino, probably you're already a single man with 8 arms: you work at F-14, F-35, S-3, MB-326, and who knows what else more! Don't worry, you're much faster than many producers with a lot of people involved!

    Yes, I am planning for a (limited) set Tacpack functionalities. At minimum it should be able to act as tanker in multiplayer, and release dumb bombs and Harpoons...

    Anticipating the S-3 Viking release. As solid as Dino's other aircraft have been, I know we won't be disappointed.

    It looks great and I suspect that it will come with all the sounds to live up to the name 'Hoover'.

    Latest build (pre-Alpha)

    A couple of images from the latest build.
    I am in the process of going through the NATOPS manual, system by system, in order to complete an Alpha build in one or two weeks (pics taken in P3Dv2).

    Vaawhooop, vawhoooooop, vaaawhooop! (Get it...I'm attempting to give the impression of an S-3 on approach to NAS North Island flying over Coronado Beach.) Looking forward to your model Dino with much anticipation.

    Thanks Dino like always! Do You have plan to do one model of Viking with extended boom (permanent) for TacPack too (for use as AI tanker)?

    I saw this picture, so looks like it will be?

    ...actually this is the way the picture was taken. An AI-tanker model is planned (actually I have one already) but at low priority.

    Looking great Dino; I'm really looking forward to this one!!!

    Your workmanship is first class as always Dino. Any chance of including some Hi-viz schemes when you get that stage Dino?

    There are half a dozen repaints in the works from Groom Lake Simulations... most of them are hi-viz.

    Nice video. I got my one and only carrier landing in one of those. Actually the mail plane version (US-3). We took off from Diego Garcia and 5 hours later landed on the USS Midway. It was cool. Looking forward to this one.

    Same engines as the A-10 but different nacelles. Some sounds are identical in the two types while other sounds are specific to each type.
