You MUST install this aircraft first, before applying this skinpak.
This is a fictional skin, representing the 45th TFW's 3 squadrons, as seen in the
Richard Herman novel "The Warbirds". The novel tells the story of a fictional
Persian Gulf war, wherein the 45th are (basically) the only US Air Power in
the region. I won't go into the storyline, but since it all revolves around a
Phantom unit (the book says it's the last USAF Phantom unit, btw), and EVERYONE
love Phantoms ... it's a no brainer, eh?
The 3 Squadrons of the Wing are represented. They are:
They carry the tail badges as when assigned to RAF Stonewood. After much
discussion with the Resident Experts , it was decieded that the 45th's
deployment to Ras Assanya was just that -a deployment-, and they would still
carry the codes from their parent unit or base. Each squdron also has it's own
tailfin color flash.
A slightly modified Loadout ini is included, with some weapons changes (back to
Iron Bombs ). In reality, these late-model aircraft were used more on PGM
delivery (ie: laser guided bombs) than 'dumb-bombs'. The Dumb Bombs fit more with
the descriptions in the book.
As always, READ the enclosed readme for full, detailed instructions. This package
has been broken down into the various folders that SF2 needs, to make it a LOT
easier to install (read: drag and drop).
Don't forget to read the "Notes & Other Nonsense" for various and sundry
ramblings of a madman, and Full Credits.
