SF2 WW2 PB4Y-1 (B-24J) USN Liberator, PTO Pak by Veltro2K 6/4/2014
(Full 5 Merged Reccomended)
This pack contains a NEW aircrft by Veltro2k; the US Navy's PB4Y-1 (B-24J) Liberator as seen in the Pacific. This aircraft uses some SF2NA 'mission statements'.
It is designed for use ONLY in the PTO (Central Pac, Solomons, Phillipines, Home Island, etc). Research has not turned up any data about thes models being used in SoWesPac (particularly New Guinea, although some DID operate over Borneo). Of course, these also replaced the eariler "D" version in the Atlantic.
The unit represented herein are:
VPB-102, based in the Solomons in 1943
The aircraft is finished in standard USN 3-tone camo, and while 'assigned' to VPB-102, is representative of pretty much all USN VPB Liberator units as seen from the Aleutians to Australia, and (almost) all points in between. The same goes for Atlantic squadrons, fron the Arctic Ocean to the South Atlantic (although with a different paint job).
The skins are in jpg format. All markings are decals (excepting the wing national markings). The BuNums are 'generic' in nature, as they represent no particular aircraft within a specific unit, but ARE for the model variant depicted. Decal randomization is set to TRUE. There are NO nose arts.
Weapons, pilot figures and guns are NOT included; you should have them already.
Damage textures are in DDS format.
When in game you'll see
PB4Y-1 (J) Liberator (v2k)
The (J) expresses that this version is based of the B-24J model, NOT the D, L, or M. All USN/USMC/USCG versions were called PB4Y-1, regardless of what sub-variant. It will also further diferentiate it from any built from Pasko's B-24J.
As always, fairly easy to follow, yet detailed install instructions are included. PLEASE read them!!! PLEASE read the "Notes" section for other important notations, in particular for in-game usage.
