Hawk 75A-C7, ML-KNIL
=for SF2, (Full4/5 merged reccomended)
-Something for the PTO players*-
*even if we don't have an NEI map; at least you'll have the aircraft.*
This is a revamp for SF2, a modification of Wolf257's P-36/Mohawk into the Hawk 75 export version, as used by several Allied nations
It represents aircraft from the ML-KNIL during the opening days of the War in the Pacific, in the defense of the Netherlands East Indies (Java and Sumatra, for those that don't know)
This creates a country specific version for use in your World War 2: PTO installs ONLY!! As such, all the loadout have been adjusted to fit KLU aircraft of the time. The 'fake pilot method" (patentpending) is used to add the 2 underwing pylons for light bombs (either RAF50 or US 100 pounders)
This is the complete aircraft; serial numbers are historically correct, but I could not determine which squadron used what number; consider them generic in this respect. A new cockpit (one of Stary's WW2 pits) replaces the original, as the gauge needles have disappeared due to a material issue. This cockpit MAY be more historicaly correct; French Hawk75s used a reflector gunsight -so perhaps they were also used on other export versions.
I've also adjusted the operational service years/dates; they historically were all destroyed by February, 1942; in the 1stGen version we couldn't have the mm/dd/yyyy but now in SF2 we can have them end on the 28th of Feburary.
As always, fairly easy to follow, highly detailed install instructions are included. So, please read them. Also, give the "Notes" section a read too. Remember -- these are very old models, so they "are as they is". All original readmes, when discoverable, are included.
