This is a SF2 version of my eariler 1stGen A-24 Dauntless; like the recently rereleased SBDs, it has a (semi)complitant SF2 FM, and may need further adjusting by experts.
It represents aircraft as used by the 8th Bombardment Squadron (Dive) in New Guinea in mid 1942. These aircraft had a very short operational career in combat (read: disastrous). Most later variants were regulated to Stateside training squadrons.
The skin is in jpg format; decal randomization is set to TRUE. Serial numbers are correct for this model Banshee, as I was not able to run down exact usage for this squadron. It also uses the original Wolf cockpit, as these are the equlivant of SBD-3, with the telescopic sight (ring-and-bead used here). The 'fakepilot method' (patentpending) is used to add the 2 wing station pylons. This tweek can also be used on the recently released SBD Dauntless pak, if one has the ini editing skills
As always, fairly easy to follow, highly detailed install instructions are included. So, please read them.
All readmes from the original releases, are included where discoverable from the archives. Remember, also, this is a very old model, and like all the others, "it is as it is".
