Hammaguir is an Algerian little town located at 100 km from the city of Colomb Bechar.
This French launch site was created in 1948.
It has been used from 1947 to 1967 to launch experimental rockets and from 1965 to 1967 to launch the "Diamant" launcher rocket, a satellite carrier.

The first French satellite A-1 named "Asterix" was launched by a "Diamant" rocket on the 26th of November 1965 at 15h47 UT.
It has been put in orbit with a perigee of 527 km, an apogee of 1697 km, and an equatorial inclination of 34.3°

A runway 27/09 of 2700 m with a VOR (freq 112.00 Mhz) can be used.

Très bien ! Les voix ne sont pas d'origine, on dirait paramètres nominaux. Beau travail. Serait-il possible d'avoir les sources du guidage dans le dossier sdk ?
Oups... je m'étais trompé d'add-on... (j'avais confondu avec "Honeymoon"...)

En fait, les fichiers de guidance, tu les trouveras dans ...\Config\Vessels\Diamant

Ce sont les fichiers *(..)guidance.txt et si on les édite, on touve ça (par exemple) :


Ce sont des vaisseaux "multistage2015" et donc ce fichier sert à guider la fusée.
