*Updated 10/6/2012: re-added missing decals folder*

*Note: as this aircraft was built with the latest TW Exporter, it most likely will NOT work in SF/Wo* 1stGen Game Installs*
This is the Grumman F9F-2 Panther, by Bobrock, as seen during the early 1950s; in partucular during the Korean War.
Skins/Decal sets are included for the following units:
VF-31 "Tomcatters" (USS Leyte, 1950/51)
VF-51 "Screaming Eagles" (USS Valley Forge, 1950*)
VF-52 "Knight Riders" (USs Valley Forge, 1950*)
VF-93 "Blue Blazers" (USS Philippine Sea, 1953)
VF-111 "Sundowners" (USS Philippine Sea, 1950)
VF-112 "Fighting 12" (USS Philippine Sea, 1950)
VF-192 "Golden Dragons" (USS Oriskany, 1/1953)
VF-721 ??? (USS Boxer, 1951)
VMF-311 "Tomcats" (land based, various airfieldz in Korea)
The aircraft is fully carrier-capable, with all the SF2NA coding for deck 'parking'.
Skins are in jpg format, so you MUST be at (minimum) Nov 2011, or the Latest July 2012 patch level. 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.
2 Hangar Screens are supplied (the full color verison being used now), along with a Loading Screen. A new engine sound is also included. Weapons use those from the GunnyPak, or from some of the other recently released KAW aircraft.
For those that don't have it, my (patentpending) back-dated, modified SCB-125_data.ini that will allow those bird farms to operate in the 1950s (until when/if we get a straight-decked Essex).
Standard Animations keystrokes are used for the canopy (Shift/0) and wingfold (shift/9). Be advised, there is a slight positioning issue with bombs/rockets when the wings are folded - I can't fix this with ini edits (must be done in MAX). So, don't fold the wings when the hardpoints are loaded, eh?
As always, fairly easy to follow, highly detailed install instructions are included. So, please read them. Also, give the "Notes" section a read too.
and the whole KAW Team
