Marcfighter- for the excellent Mi-8 model, cockpit and for graciously granting permission to mod his Mi-8 into an IAF Mi-8 Rana.
Wrench, the ini master, for his support, encouragement and solving a few issues I was facing with the loadouts

By Lazarus1177Pakistan Army Aviation Corps. Mil Mi-8 pack for SF2(Full 5-merged recommended).
This pack represents the Mi-8/17 Multi role helicopter in service with the Pakistan Army Aviation Corps.These birds have been in service for a long time and have been used in almost every role,from disaster relief to Troop insertion to battling insurgents in the Tribal regions.The Pakistan Army mostly uses the Mi-17,but a few Mi-8 variants are also in service.The following skins are included:
-2 desert camo schemes
-1 green camo scheme
-1 SSG(Special Services Group) scheme
A total of 5 skins are included.The Aircraft was made for SF2 by marcfighters.I have adjusted the loadout to allow it to carry non-soviet weapons.The FM of the Aircraft works perfectly well on the Normal Flight model setting.NOTE:Only ask your wingmen to engage targets within a range of 1.2 Nm or less.Otherwise,they will simply waste all their munitions from a very long range.
NOTE:The skins are in the .BMP format and are sized to 2048x2048.Users with older system may want to resize to 1024x1024 for optimal performance.
After unzipping PA_Mi-8 pack 1.0,place the sounds and the objects folder inside your SF2 mods folder.You must at least know about the SF2 mods folder.
Note:If you do not know anything about the mod folder,the immediately stop the installation,go to the COmbatACE Forums,Go to the Strike Fighters 2 Knowledge Base and take a look at the thread explaining the Strike Fighters 2 mod folder mechanism.
I HEREBY CLAIM NO RESPONSIBILITY FOR ANY OF THE CHANGES THIS MOD MAY RENDER TO YOUR GAME(Even though it doesn't).IF THIS MOD IS INSTALLED,THEN IT IS DONE ONLY BY THE WILL OF THE USER AND I CANNOT BE HELD RESPONSIBLE FOR ANYTHING THAT HAPPENS.INSTALL AT YOUR OWN RISK.(The mod is perfectly safe,but I still claim no responsibility just to be safe!)
You have permission to modify these textures for your own mod(s) as long as I(lazarus1177) am acknowledged as the original author.
If you have any concerns about my mod(s),then I can be contacted here at combatace.
