SF2 WW2 PTO Republic P-47D "Razorback" Thunderbolt by Cocas 12/24/2014
= For SF2 (Full4/5 Merged RECCOMENDED!)
*This mod will =NOT= work in SF/Wo* 1stGen game installs. It was built for SF2 ONLY!!.*
This is a BRAND NEW aircraft, brought to you by Cocas Aircraft Factory & Co.
We are calling this "version 0.9", as there exists the possibility of more work being required. But, we wanted to get them out into the hands of our WW2 End Users for their examinations and so forth.
**REMINDER: this pack is for PTO Razorback Jugs -only-!!! And by PTO, this means SoWesPac, NOT CBI, not the Solomons, etc!!! This would include New Guinea, points north and west, and obviously the Philipines. Other theatres will follow as they are completed.**
This pak contains 2 complete aircraft, representing the Razorback P-47D-2/D-10 in early/mid 1943, and the later D-15 thru D-20 Razorback Thunderbolt as seen in late 1943 (November-ish) through (nearly the) war's end, in the SoWesPac regions of the PTO (read: 5th AF).
Skin(s) included are:
P-47D-5 (early model):
340th FS, 348th FG (SWP, mid-1943 scheme w/star-and-ball)
P-47D-20 (later model):
340th FS, 348th FG (SWP, late 43/early 44 w/star-and-bar)
310th FS, 58th FG, (SWP/New Guinea region, late 43/early 44)
All markings are decals, and Decal randomization is TRUE.
The aircraft is finished in standard 0D/Grey, with Southwest Pacfic markings.
Please note, SWP Theatre, Squadron and/or Group specific markings -ARE- painted on.
The serials herein should be considered "generic" in nature, but ARE for the correct model variant. For the most part, there are NO nose arts, with the exception of a few for the 340th, "borrowed" from Major Lee's 348th FG skin set.
All the 1stGen Hangar and/or Loading screens were either rebuilt to SF2-spec, or created new for this package. They are in jpg format, and fit SF2 styling. Damage textures are also new, in DDS format.
The canopy opens/closes with the Standard Animation Keystroke , Shift/0
Pilots, sounds, weapons are all included.
Templates for this aircraft will be issued as a seperate release, for those skinners that wish to do other units/theatres.
As there are several P-74D Razorbacks available, when in game you'll see:
P-47D-5 Thunderbolt (CAF)(Mid 43)
P-47D-20 Thunderbolt (CAF)
on the aircraft selection dropdown menu. This will diferentiate it from any others that are around (Wolf or DAT).
For those with the SWP/PTO Razorback mods I've done for Wolf's P-47, this mod is designed to compliment, NOT replace it. However... it's your choice to keep them or not.
As always, fairly easy to follow, yet detailed install instructions are included. PLEASE read them!!! Also, as usual, PLEASE!! give the "Notes" section a read, too.
