SF2 WW2 P-47D Bubbletop, 92st FS, CBI, Skin/Decal Pak 12/13/2013
-- Something for the WW2 CBI players --
= For SF2 ONLY (Any and All) =
**Note: this mod is designed for use =ONLY= in a WW2 CBI-Centric mods folder. In fact,
research seems to indicate this unit (81st FG) operated only over China from mid-1944*
New skin and decal set for Wolf257's P-47D-20 Razorback Thunderbolt, recreate the 92st FS,
81st FG as seen in China from mid-1944 thru war's end. Conside this a compaion set for the
91st FS's Razorbacks. The only non-historical bit, is the vertical squadron rudder/fin ID
stripe was solid, not broken so the serial can be seen. In Real Life , the serial
numbers may have been painted over by the stripe.
The included data ini has several changes (listed below in "Change List") for CBI (and
specificly China) usage ONLY!!!
The skin is in jpg format, and decal randomization is TRUE. The serial numbers, while
'generic' in nature, ARE correct for the model variant depicted.
The data ini supplied here in the main aircraft folder, is a theatre-specific data ini,
with the approximated start date/month of P-47 operations in the CBI. I made the assumption
(oh! that word!!) that Bubbletops started appearing within a few months of the Razorbacks.
Which is a different timeframe then the ETO or MTO.
Like the recently released mod for the Razorback, some of these changes and additions can
be used for any of Wolf's Bubbletop Jugs for ETO or MTO usage (after removal of the ADF
loop statements, of course!)
REMINDER!! Jugs in the PTO (ie: SoWesPac and Central Pacific), did =NOT= use the DF loop;
it is a CBI thing only. Once again, making the point of having a CBI-0nly Mods Folder.
As always, fairly easy to follow, yet detailed install instructions are included. PLEASE
