About This File
The KC-97 Stratofreighter was an aerial refueling tanker variant of the C-97 Stratofreighter (which was itself based on the Boeing B-29 Superfortress), greatly modified with all the necessary tanks, plumbing, and "flying boom." The cavernous upper deck was capable of accommodating oversize cargo accessed through a very large right-side door. In addition, transferrable jet fuel was contained in tanks on the lower deck (G-L models). Both decks were heated and pressurized for high altitude operations.
Serial numbers, while generic in nature, ARE for the model depicted (KC-97G converted to L model). 18 serial decals are included. Decal randomization is true. All markings are decals.
Damage texture is in DDS.
A new userlist is included for the 2 main users (USAF, and Spain -3 aircraft)
Crew entry door is operated by the Standard Animation Keystroke , Shift/0 (zero). The standard bomb bay keystorke, Cntl/0 (oh) operates the refueling boom.
For skinners, within the Decals folder is a PSD to assist in the creation of other USAF ANG tail badges, as well as some base bmps for other decals to be made from.
A new combo "jet/recip" engine sound (borrowed from the P-2H Neptune) is included, as is the usual "4 engine piston" for those that find the other too loud.

?? for P2V-7 (Neptune) engine/jet sound (Argentinian Modder Group - Sucidal? Torno?)
