SF2 AD-4W/AEW.1 "Guppy" 4/1/2014


= For SF2, Full 5 Merged RECCOMENDED! =


**Note: Actually, SF2NA is actually -REQUIRED- in merged installs, due to NA coding used for

this aircraft's operational statements. It is also HIGHLY SUGGESTED!! that this be

=ONLY= used in the NA envrionment (read: in SF2:NA only). It was tested only in the

NA environment, but there are a few issues (see Notes below).***


A rebuild of MontyCZ's A-1H Skyraider give us the AD-4W "Guppy" Naval Airborne Early

Warning aircraft of the 1950s.


Included are 4 skins, representing the aircrft from 1950 through 1960. They are:








British Royal Navy (AEW.1)

No 849 Naval Air Squadron; in 'normal' garb

No 849 NAS, HMS Albion, during the Suez Crisis (with Suez 'Invasion Stripes')


The USN/USMC skins use a painted on fueselage national marking (not enough meshes

for all decals); All other markings are decals. All aircraft are in 'standard' Dark

Gloss Navy Blue. For the RN skins, ALL markings are decals. Serial numbers are 100%

historically accurate for the model depicted, and Decal Randomization is TRUE. As

there is no possible way to run down the US serials, they should be considered

'generic' in nature.

However, you may experience some 'unusual' shuffling' of the CV and Flight letter

codes on the Royal Navy (non Suez) skin. Further explinations for this are in the

'Notes' Section. The Suez skin depicts 849's "C" flight as embarked during Operation

Musketeer, and are 100% correct.


Skins remain in lo-rez bmp format, but new DDS damage textures are supplied (just in

case). Each skins has it's own hangar screen.


As always, fairly easy to follow, yet detailed install instructions are included.

So, please read them. As mentioned above, give the "Notes" section a read too.


Happy Landings!
