SF2 WW2 AVG "Flying Tigers" Tomahawk Pack V.2 5/2/2015
-- Something for the CBI players --
= For SF2, Full-4/5 Merged (Reccomended/Preferred) =
*There is a possibility that this mod will =NOT= work in SF/Wo* 1stGen game installs, due to the excessive modifications made to fit them into the SF2 environment. This mod is designed to REPLACE, in its entirety, the one based on Wolf's Tomahawk. See Install instructions for more information.*
**Notex2: These aircraft should ONLY be used in a seperate CBI-centric mods folder to prevent them from showing up where, historically, they shouldn't. The Aircraft & GroundObject sets for CBI are substantially different from Central or SouthWest Pacific areas.**
This is a re-compilation of Baltika's beautiful P-40B/C Tomahawk "Flying Tigers" Pack for use in CBI-based WW2 installs. It has been converted for use on Raven's P-40B/C. Consider this as 'Version 2'.
It contains 99.9% Historically Accurate serial numbers, Individual aircraft numbers and squadron markings.
This mod creates a seperate, nationalized version, called "Tomahawk_AVG". Be sure your WW2 Nations ini contains the 'country', AVG!
This pak contains skins/decals for:
1st Pursuit "Adam & Eves"
2nd Pursuit "Panda Bears"
3rd Pursuit "Hell's Angles"
All markings, excepting squadron color bands, are decals. Decal Randomization is TRUE. All items, sounds, pilot figure, excepting guns, are included. Provisions have been allowed for use of a drop tank, but all research indicates the AVG never used (or had!) them. Also, no bombs are carried. Any ground attacking will be 'guns only'. The canopy operates with the Standard Animation Keystroke, Shift/0.
As Raven't Tomahawk is considered a beta, due to the cockpit being unfinished, this mod uses one of Stary's 'Generic Pits'.
Operational service dates for the aircraft have been limited to the actual spread; 12/21/41 - 7/4/42. To that end, Userlist.ini was created to help 'lock them in'. (it is known however, that some of the AVG Tomahawks DID operate with the newly formed 23rd FG, when taken under USAAF control).
When in game you'll see
Tomahawk AVG (Raven)
on the aircraft selection drop down. This will diferentitate it from the original, based on Wolf's Tomahawk.
As always, fairly easy to follow, highly detailed install instructions are included. So, please read them =BEFORE= installing, but (duh!) after unzipping. Also, give the "Notes" section a read too. Baltika's original readme for the Flying Tigers Mod is included for historical purposes.
