Douglas A4D-1 (A-4A) Skyhawk
- For SF2 (Any and All, but Full-4 Merged Prefered*) -
*Note: this makes use of the A-4B lods, that are stock in most installs (SF2 & SF2:V).These and the cockpit may not be available in un-mergerd, stand alone SF2:E and most definately not in SF2:I. Hence, the 'Full-4 Merged Prefered' tag.*
The decal sets are taken from the various 1stGen mods of the A-4A, and where necessary I've redone the skin bits, using SF2 A-4B skins to bring them to SF2 standards.
This package included 4 skin and decal sets:
VA-43 Challangers (Gitmo, 59)
VA-72 Bluehawks (1956)
VA-93 Blue Blazers (1956)
VMA-224 Bengals (MCAS El Toro, 1957)
The VA-72 is my original from (whenever); the others were done by some talented folk I've not be able to ID -- as I lost the original readmes (if any). So, the credit is theirs for those skins/decals. I just edited things to fit. Where needed, created new decals.
Decal randomization is set to TRUE, so make sure you're at least at the July 2011 patch level (or whichever one it is...).
Data ini edits remove the refueling probe. The inis included herein are the latest, as of the August 2011 patch. All loadouts are stock ala the A-4B. The canopy is activated via manual animation, use Shift/0 to open and close. The landing light has also been added.
As always, fairly easy to follow, detailed install instructions are included. So, please read them .... Of course, the usual "Notes" section. These will give you a nice mid-1950s collection of USN Light Strike aircraft for use in various "hot spots" of the time period.
Catch the 3 Wire!
with the release of the DLC A-4A, this mod became moot. However, the skins and decals can easily be adapted for use on that DLC.
