SF2 WW2 Royal Navy Corsair Mk.1 by Mod Mafia/TMF

-- Something for the ETO --
*Note: There is a distinct possibility that this mod =MAY= work in SF/Wo* 1stGen game installs. However, due to the excessive modifications made to fit them into the SF2 environment. End Users that attempt to do so, do so at their own risk. A Full 4/5 Merged install is reccomened; at very minimum, SF2:V is required, as this aricraft references the A-1H's destroyed model. Also, some of the SF2 only "switches" will NOT work in 1stGens.*
A brand "new" model that was never completed when Bpao passed away a few year back. I've been fortunate enough to be allowed to complete his work, as a member of the Mod Mafia.
This is the Royal Navy Fleet Air Arm Corsair Mk.1 as seen 1943-ish, when first issued to RN squadron. It should be noted, that almost NONE of the Mk.1s were used in combat, but mostly for training as the Mk.II followed right on it's heels. Essentially, this is the "Birdcage" Corsair. Unlike the Mk.II and Mk.IV, these never got the "clipped wings", and had very limited use aboard RN Carriers. Like the USMC/USN Birdcage, it is fully combat-capable, but in Real Life was rarely used so.
Skin/Decals are included are for:
1830 Squadron, as seen at New Brusnwick, Maine (USA) before transport to the UK.
All skins are in jpg format. Decals are used for all markings, and Randomization is TRUE. A "new" SF2 style hangar screen was created for this aircraft. Damage textures are the old tga versions.
A user list is included; operational service dates have been rounded to the closest whole Year (ie: 1943), even though its a "Nationalized" version.
The aircraft is fully carrier capable. The canopy operates via the Standard Animation Keystorke of Shift/0. Breaking with Modder Tradition, the wingfold operates via the "airbrakes" key. I didn't change to the standard Shift/9, as the last time I did it, I broke it!. So, it is as it was originally set by Bpao.
All lighting is historically accurate. WW2 weapons (ie: bombs, rockets) are NOT included. You should have them already. The drop tank is, as is the pilot figure and engine sounds (which you may also have already!).
when 'in game', you'll see "Corsair Mk.I "Birdcage" (TMF)" in the aircraft selection drop-down window. This will diferentiate it from any other RN Corsairs you may (or may not) have. (or that are still to come!)
As always, fairly easy to follow, highly detailed install instructions are included. So, please READ them. Also, give the "Notes" section a read too for futher explinations, clarifactions, illuminations and so forth.
