SF2 WW2 French Navy Aircraft and Ships Pak 2/16/2014
= For SF2 (Full 5 Merged REQIRED!)
**This mod -WILL NOT- work in 1stGen game installs. It's designed for the the SF2NA environment**
This is a VERY odd package, probably one of the oddest I've ever done! It contains both historical and "What If..." items.
I really don't know if this belongs in the "What If" Hangar, or the Regular WW2 Downloads Section. But it may increase the "fun factor" of having something different. I'd started this mod in July, 2013, and just never got around to finishing it.
This package contains aircraft and ships of the French Navy for WW2.
Grumman G-36A (Martlet I/F4F-3), Flottile 13 (somewhat real, somewhat What If)
V-156F (Vought SB2U) E/AB-1 (real *model is a stand-in*)
SBD-3 Dauntless Flotille 3 (real, circa 1943/44)
Aircraft (What If...):
Sea Hurrican Ib, Flotille 12
Martlet IVF (F4F-4) Flotille 13
PA Bearn Class CV*
PA Joffre Class CV*
Suffren Class CA
Malin Class DD*
Ships marked with the star (*), while having historical names and numbers, are complete and utter "stand-ins". However, everything DOES work (more or less). The Suffren class CAs are, of course, Foch, and are correctly shaped.
For those aircraft with working canopies (G-36A, Hurricane) and folding wing (just the Martlet IV), the Standard Animation Keystrokes are used; shift/0 for the canopy and shift/9 for the wings.
As always, fairly easy to follow, yet detailed install instructions are included. PLEASE read them!!! Also, you might want to give the (rather extensive) "Notes" section a read for historcal and non-historical backgrounds. The "credits" section breaks down "who has what and where did it come from".
Also, please remember, some of these models are very old, and may have some "issues" in SF2.
