Bell P-39D Airacobra, 93rd FS Skin & Ini Pak
For SF/SFG/WoV/WoE WW2: MTO Installs -06 Patch Levels ONLY!!
This package contains a new skin, and some minor data & cockpit ini mods for Wol257's P-39D Airacrobra. You will be using this pak IN the P-39D, as the external differences between the 'mid-series' K/L/M/N models are really too small notice. If wishing to recreate the L/M models, instructions are in the "Notes" section below.
The skin represents aircraft from the 93rd FS, 81st FG as seen after Operation TORCH, and in other operations in North Africa, Sicily and Italy in the late 1942 through late 1943 time frames. The aircraft carries a 'non standard' camo pattern, similiar to that used on RAF and other USAAF aircraft in North Africa, the 'yellow surround' cockade. Serial numbers ARE accurate for L & M model Airacobras, but I could only find 100% accurate data for aircraft T & V. All other serials should be considered "generic" in nature.
For those that haven't updated their MTO install's Airacobra, I've supplied the inis and cockpit necessary to update to a pit with the reflector gunsight (like as used in my P-400 mod), and corrected all the lighting (again!) -- there are new formation/ID lights under the right wing, tail ID lights have been repositioned to their proper placement. It should be noted these lighting fixes can easily be applied to all other Aircobras via simple text edits of the data inis.
Also, just for fun, is a NEW WoE-style hangar screen, MTO themed for this aircraft.
As always, it's reccomended you unzip this package to a temp folder or your desktop, or somewhere's else that's easy to find to gain access to the rest of this readme for full, detailed install instructions.
