SF2 WW2 PBY-5A Catalina by Veltro2K
= For SF2, (Full 5 RECCOMENDED!!!) =
**NOTE: due to the EXTENSIVE modifications performed on the various inis, this mod will !!Absolutely!! =NOT= work in SF/Wo* game at any patch level. A FUll 5 Merged install is required, due to the use of SF2NA statements in the data ini, pertaining to Naval Search and Naval Strike.**
This is a Re-release of the Veltro2k's WW2 PBY-5A Catalina flying boat patrol bomber aircraft.
While the Game Engine dosent support amphidexterious operations off water, the wing floats extend/retract with the H (arrestor hook) key.
This pack contains just the single skin, USN42. This is a rather 'generic' skin, and represents USN VP squadrons from approximately May 1942, when the red ball and rudder stripes were removed. This also -more or less- coincides with the the arrival in greater strentgh in squadron service, of the -5A amphibibian version (which this is), replacing the -4 and -5 seaplane only variant.
Other skins ARE needed; the template for this aircraft should be available still in the SF/Wo* 1stGen downloads section. If not, I'll upload my copy. (we could use RNFAA, RNZAF, USN 3-tone and overall Black for the "Black Cats")
As always, fairly easy to follow, detailed install instructions are included. PLEASE read them!!! Also, give the "Note" section a read, too
The Legal Statement has been changed with regards to this aircraft.
For those that still have the original releases, you SHOULD redownload this pak; . There HAVE been MANY changes and additions in several of the inis, in respect to SF2NA.
**These aircraft herein are released in "AS IS" Condition. Any and all issues/problems that cannot be solved via ini edits will exist forever, as new models are unlikely to be created**.
