SF2 WW2 PTO PV-2 Harpoon by Veltro2K 9/21/2014
-- Something for the WW2 PTO players --
= For SF2 ONLY, Full-5 Merged (Reccomended/Preferred) =
**Note: This mod will -NOT- work in 1stGen game installs at any patch level. A Full-5 merged is reccomended.**
This is a the release of Veltro2K's =NEW= Lockheed/Vega PV-2 Harpoon USN Patrol Bomber.
There are 2 skin/decals set(s) in the package:
USN (star-&-bar, 3 tone for WW2)
DGNB (dark gloss Navy blue overall, post-war)
Although the 3 tone skin is tagged for VPB-138 (Northern Pacific/Aleutian Islands region), it is representative of pretty much ALL USN PTO Ventura units from Australia to the Aleutians.
The DGNB skin is tagged for VP-772, a post-war reserve squadron based at NAS Los Alimitos, California circa 1948. The base blue skin can also be used for several of the other post-war users.
All markings are decals, and Decal Randomization is TRUE. Serial number/BuNums are accurate for the model depicted, but should be considered 'generic' in nature, as they reprsent no specific unit. Lighting is as accurate as possible, given the lack of pictures of the bottom.
Engine sounds, pilot figures, and a 'box art' Hangar Screen are included. Weapons, guns, bombs, etc, for the most part, are NOT; you should have them already. However, a set of HVAR mounts, the rockets themselves, and the drop tank is. Operational service dates are rounded to 'whole months', and ARE relatively correct for ALL in-theatre usages.
When in game, you'll see
PV-2 Harpoon (v2k)
on the Aircraft Selection Drop down menu. As several versions are planned, this will help keep them diferentiated, so to speak.
As always, fairly easy to follow, yet detailed install instructions are included. PLEASE read them!!!
All hit boxes reset or newly created for those components without
Small adjustment to some FM parameters.
Destroyed model referenced to a stock 3W aircraft, available in all versions
