About This File

PLEASE READ THE README FILE INCLUDED !!!!!

 

The Northrop P-61 Black Widow, named for the venomous spider, was the first operational U.S. military aircraft designed specifically for night interception of opposing aircraft, and was the first aircraft specifically designed to use radar. The P-61 had a crew of three: pilot, gunner, and radar operator.

 

Like the original 1stGen Pak, this mod contains 2 complete aircraft:

P-61A

with 2 skins,

Olive Drab/Neutral Gray

and

Overall Black

The Black will become active using the "StartDefaultDate" switch.

P-61B

Overall Black

The P-61A does NOT have the top turret (as is historicaly correct). The P-61B DOES, and it will engage defensively (well, sorta offensively too) any E/A with range.

As a bonus, an 'experimental' version of the P-61A-1, WITH turret (but locked forward), and some engine modifications is included for those End Users with the skills and talents to try and dial in the WEP statements. The WEP is 'best guess', and historically was used on all Black Widow models (yes, the time IS correct! Right from the Pilot's Manual and other technical resources. But don't use it for longer than 5 minutes at a time!)
