SF2 AD2/3 Skyraider
= For Your Korean War Flying Pleasure =
= For SF2, Full-4/5 Merged, (Reccomended/Preferred) =
*Note: you MUST have SF2:V as part of your merged install. This aircraft references the A-1H lod from SF2V,
and will =NOT= work without it.*
This is a mod of the 3rdWire A-1H Skyraider, to the earlier AD-2/3 version as used by the USN and USMC
during the Korean War. It was thrown together as an experiment some long time ago, and I thought you all would like to have it, "just because". The aircraft is supplied with 2 skins:
VA-35, "Black Panthers" US Navy, USS Leyte 1950 *
VMA-121 "Wolf Raiders", USMC, Pyongteak, 1950-53
This is a complete aircraft (well, minus the Stock Lod of course!), with a new radar-equipped cockpit
by Dels. Skins are still in bmp format, making it usable in all SF2 merged game installs with access to the
A-1H.lod. The skins are new from my Home Grown Templates , in the 1950s Dark Gloss Navy Blue; all
markings are decals and are Randomized. BuNums are accurate for the aircraft variant depicted, but not for
the actual ones used by the squadrons; consider them 'generic' for that purpose.
The 'USMC50s' pilot figure, AN/APS-4 radar pod and engine sounds are included. The only weapon included is the 120 gallon drop tank. Bombs and rockets reference those WW2 units from the GunnyPak, and are NOT
included (simple edits can make the stock 3W ones usable, if one has Expansion Pak 1).
Wingfold is NOT activated, but the canopy is. Use the Usual Suspect (shift/0) to open and close it. All
lighting is hisotrically correct.
As always, fairly easy to follow, highly detailed install instructions are included. So, please read them.
Also, give the "Notes" section a read too. Please.
*note: VA-35 may have actually used AD-4s as opposed 2/3... my references were a little vague on the point*
