3. [ About the installation ]
The airframe must copy the JAS39A Gripen folder as it is in the Aircraft folder of FS2002 or FS2004.
Please copy all files in the gauges folder onto the gauge in the Gauges folder of FS2002 or FS2004.
A general gauge is saved for the gauge bundled this time.
The Gauges of KingAir and GPS are not bundled.
Please set up it by yourself.
4. [ About the operations ]
Shift+"E" = Canopy Open/Shut
Throttle(F1 - F4 Key) = After burner Open/Shut
!! A special key operation !!
Concorde Nose Key = Refuel Probe Out/In
This key is an arbitrary key that you are setting as key for Concorde Nose operation.
* for special key operation, *
* It is likely not to operate according to a set method of *
* your FS or the state of other Add-on tool. *

2.Please neither reverse-assembly nor never remodel(convert) it of the aircraft model.
3.Please don't bundle my airframe(MDL file) in the package of your works when you open the repaint to the public.
(Please open only the texture to the public. )
4.Don't use DXT format for making texture.
Please make it by the format that everyone can change.
It is necessary to be able to read and change with usual drawing software.
5.It is prohibited to bundle and to open a new panel to the public to my aircraft model.
(Please open only the panel to the public.
It is included in this file, and remodeling the panel that uses the panel background and the change in the panel background are prohibited. )
6.I maintain the copyright of the aircraft model and the panel background.
7.The copyright of the gauge belongs to the author.
6. [ About the directions point in FS2004 ]
This aircraft model is made by using FSDS Ver2.24.
Therefore, it is possible to play basically in FS2004(FS9).
For a wide large-scale aircraft, the distortion is caused and the phenomenon of the aerofoil tip's disappearing happens in the spot shooting mode.
If this phenomenon happens, Please switch to the spot shooting mode by using other small aircraft.
Afterwards, if this aircraft is selected, it is normally displayed.
Please give mail to the following mail address when there is a recommendation of making the opinion and the thing that doesn't come.
