SF2 WW2 PTO PBJ-1H Mitchell (USMC) "Gunship" Pak by Veltro2K 7/20/2014
-- Something for the WW2 PTO players --
= For SF2 ONLY, Full-5 Merged (Reccomended/Preferred) =
**Note: This mod references the stock destroyed Il-28. Also, due to modifications to various inis, this mod will probably -NOT- work in 1stGen game installs at any patch level. This has not/cannot be tested by me. Also, some SF2NA 'mission tasking' has been added, so SF2NA is pretty much a requirement.**
This is a "Theatre/Service Specific" release of Veltro2K's =NEW= B-25H Mitchell Medium Bomber. This represents those as used by the US Marines, as the PBJ-1H. This package WILL replace any other PBJ-1H mods you may (or may not) have. If you DO have the version I did based on the DAT's B-25H, you are advised to DELETE it, and it's associated decals folder completly. This =WILL= replace that one totally.
There are 1 skin/decals set(s) in the package:
as used in the Central Pacific (Marshalls, Gilberts -which, unfortunately, we don't have a map for with ground bases..!- I'll put it on the 'to do' list) in 1944 thru the War's End. VMB-613 was the ONLY USMC squadron to be equipped totally with the H model Mitchell with the 75mm gun.
The skin is in jpg format,
All markings are decals, and Decal Randomization is TRUE. There ARE nose arts (ie: names), and all BuNums have been matched to their aircraft Modex number. As seen on the numberlst, those marked with a star (*) are 100% correctly matched to BuNum/Modex/Nose Art. Those named/displayed withOUT the star, could not be matched to their Modex/BuNum.
Included are Engine sounds, pilot figures, and a new Hangar screen. Operational service dates are rounded to 'whole months', and ARE relatively correct for in-theatre usage.
The 75mm gun is included; all other weapons you should have already. Also, provisions for mounting rockets, and the rockets themselves are included. The torpedo station remains active, although research has not turned up any squadrons using them operationally.
The guns have been grouped as follows:
GunGroup=1 -- machine guns
GunGroup=2 -- the Cannon
So, have keys set up accordingly
When in game, you'll see:
PBJ-1H Mitchell (v2k)
on the Aircraft Selection Drop down menu. This will differentiate it from any other Marine Mitchells you may (or may not) have.
As always, fairly easy to follow, yet detailed install instructions are included. PLEASE read them!!! Also, see if you can spot the Easter Egg .
