SF2 WW2 ETO Mitchell Mk.III (B-25J) Bomber Pak 8/2/2014
-- Something for the WW2 ETO players --
= For SF2 ONLY, Full-5 Merged (Reccomended/Preferred) =
**Note: This mod will -NOT- work in 1stGen game installs at any patch level.**
This is a "Theatre/Service Specific" nationalized release of Veltro2K's =NEW= B-25J Mitchell Medium Bomber. This represents the "glass nosed" bomber version used by the RAF in Western Europe. To make installation easier, this is the FULL aircraft, so people don't have to worry about copying files from one mods folder to another.
There are 2 skin/decals set(s) in the package (mind you, only ONE actual skin map, ala the Brain32 trick, residing in the main aircraft's folder):
No. 98 Squadron
No. 320 Squadron (Netherlands)
On the Loadout Screen, the Squadron Badge for each unit is used as the paint chip. The aircraft is finished in standard OD/Grey. All markings are decals, and Decal Randomization is TRUE.
Serials for 98 Squadron are correct for this mark, but should be considered generic in nature, representing no particular aircraft within said squadron.
For 320 Squadron, those marked with a single star (*) are 100% matched to their plane-in-group letter. Those marked with a double star (**), while having served in 320 could not be matched to a letter (or were replacement aircraft taking the letter of one lost on operations). Those without a star, are 'generic'.
There are no ID bands, as the J model became operational several months after D-Day.
Engine sounds, pilot figures, and a Hangar Screen are included. Weapons, guns, bombs, etc, are NOT; you should have them already. Operational service dates are rounded to 'whole months', and ARE relatively correct for ALL in-theatre usages.
When in game, you'll see
Mitchell Mk.III (v2k)
on the Aircraft Selection Drop down menu. This will differentiate it from any other B-25s you may (or may not) have. As this aircraft makes use of the Invader cockpit, it has an operational bombadier station. Included is the PDF giving instructions on "how to use the bombsight". I'd reccomend not only reading it, but practicing it's use on The Range terrain.
As always, fairly easy to follow, yet detailed install instructions are included. PLEASE read them!!!
