SF2 WW2 Gloster Gladiator Mk.2 and Sea Gladiator by Cocas
-- Something for the WW2 ETO/MTO players --
= For SF2, Full-5 Merged (Reccomended/Preferred) =
*This mod will most likely =NOT= work in SF/Wo* 1stGen game installs, due to some of the modifications made to fit them into the SF2 environment, expecially in the case of the latest MAX exported user to create them. Users that try, do so at their own risk.*
Some modification, tweeks, reskin and so forth for Cocas's fun little Gladiators; this package contains SF2 =ONLY= versions of his Gladiator Mk.2 and Sea Gladiator.
Skins and decals included are...
112 Squadron, RAF as seen at Helwan, Egypt 1940
1 Squadron, SAAF, in East Africa 1940-ish
1ère Escardrille de Chasse, Belgian AF, 1940
Sea Gladiator, Royal Navy
RN Markings are rather 'generic'; the first 18 serials are those that HMS Eagle dropped off on Malta, and eventually became the Hal Far Fighter Flight. Those 100% historicaly known to have been used on Malta are marked with a star (*).
All skins are in jpg format. Decal Randomization is set to TRUE for all skins. New SF2 hangar screens are included, as is a destroyed model, pilot figure, and engine sound. You shoud have the 303 MGs in your /Guns folder already; it is not supplied herein.
When 'in game', you'll see
"Gladiator Mk.II (KAF)" and
"Sea Gladiator (KAF)"
on the drop down menu. This will differentiate it from any other Gladiators you may (or may not) have. (the KAF stands for Kermit Aircraft Factory )
The canopy opens/closes with the Standard Animation Keystroke, Shift/0. The Sea Gladiator is fully carrier qualified, and has the latest SF2NA statements for carrier basing (on those terrains that have CV Zones built into them)
As an Extra Added Bonus, for use in the Med, some Regia Marina warships,
Cavour Class BB
Condottieri Class CL/CA
Navigatori Class DD
Other Royal Navy ships (UK) can be found in the PTO ships pak.
All are UPconverted for SF2NA-style usage. As with all the ships, they need more work on adding more 2ndary and AAA guns, but at least you'll have something floating around! (please note, they are now named differently from the ones used on the Westen Desert, Tunisia and WW2 Libya maps. Updates for those terrains _types inis are in 'the works' and will be relasesed in the VERY near future. I hope!!)
As always, fairly easy to follow, yet detailed install instructions are included. So, please =READ= them.
Also, give the "Notes" section a read too.
