SF2 WW2 ETO RAF Catalina (PBY-5a) Skin/Ini Pak 11/11/2013
-- Something for the WW2 ETO players --
= For SF2 ONLY, Full-5 Merged (Reccomended/Preferred) =
A new skin, and some ini updates for Veltro's Catalina. This skin is for No.210 Squadron, RAF Costal Command as seen approx late 1941. This is an ETO =ONLY= skin, so install the aircraft accordingly!!!
This skin/ini package is to be applied to the PBY-5A Reissue Pak, available at the following url:
You are =exceedingly= advised to back up some of the inis, and these are listed in the "To Install" section. Also, see the "Notes" section for historical comments.
All new 100% historically accurate serials numbers are included. It should ben noted, that although the serials ARE aircraft used by 210 Squadron, there was no way to match plane-in-group letter to serial. Also, as stated in the "Notes" section, these are for Catalina II/IIa/III Flying Boats.
Decal Randomizations is TRUE. ALL markings are decals, making it extra easy for other skinners to create other squadrons.
The skin itself is in jpg format. An RAF-only Catalina hangar screen is also included (making use of the skin-specific type allowed in SF2).
To fly the aircraft, select the PBY-5A from the drop-down, and choose "Royal Air Force" for the service.
Included are updated data, loadout and userlist inis. Also included are 2 version of the Mk.XII British torpedo - one a standard torp, the other an experimental "cruise missile" type, ala SF2NA (hence, the Full-5 merged requirement).
As always, fairly easy to follow, yet detailed install instructions are included. PLEASE read them before installing!!! PLEASE read the "Notes" section for the change list, and other stuff that might be interestering in general.
