About This File
At the close of the "Western Infidel War" or the 1939-45 war to the west, Paran had become a wealthy nation, due to it's trade with oil and sand ( for sandbags ) to the everyone who wasn't at war with them ( no one) and disturbing sabre rattling from across the border on Dhimar, the Parani Ministry of Defence, embarked upon a programme of modernisation and re equipping of its various military units. The Navy formed Marine aviation units, with the view to eventually acquiring an Aircraft carrier, however as this was not an option at this time due to the trade in sand ( For sandbags) tailing off, but it was certainly a goal of the Imperial Military to procure at least one carrier at some point.
The I.P.M.N.A. in the meantime needed equipping, the first aircraft purchased was the capable and reliable Yak-9 , named the "NUHAS" or Shrike in Parani service, this aircraft was seen as a dual purpose aircraft filling both the ground attack/CAS capability and also was a capable fighter in its own right, the 2nd Marine Squadron was thus equipped with this aircraft and used them to good effect for many years.
Installation and blah blah
I have included ( I hope) everything needed in one package, ie. the aircraft decals, weapons, pilots, and sounds. I have also included a SQADRONLIST.INI, and a NATIONS.INI to allow these birds to show up as a nation and with the correct markings. I have dropped all the respective files into their correct folders so, all you will need to do is unRAR/ZIP/7Z to your saved game folder, and allow overwrites ( if any) I have tested this on a full merged all bells and whistles SF2 so I assume it will work on unmerged too.as I said everything is there to get her up and running, just drop it all as is into your saved game folder and off you fly.
original files by by Pasko & Wolf257, updated at some point to SF2 standards, with additional work from Wrench and Wilches. If I have missed anyone out I do apologise, you are thanked and credited in absentia. If you have downloaded any of my other Parani aircraft, you will know the drill, everything you require is in this rar file, so unpack it all....blah blah blah ( you know the drill.....I hope) no special instructions for this very nice looking aircraft, fly it, bomb stuff, rocket balst stuff, and shoot down stuff.....wizard prang !!
Credit for the original model and workings to whomsoever was involved in the original aircraft. I have just played around and tweaked a few things. I could not have done this for you to enjoy without the initial hard work by the likes of Mr Wrench, Mr Paulopanz and all the other fantastic modders on here to numerous to mention, I am an amateur just dipping my toe in a very deep pond !!!
keep your mk 1's peeled, for more Parani lovliness................ENJOY !!
