This was originally an AI only aircraft. I added Dels C-130 pit so that it was flyable and I could check my work. That said, it is best to not fly from the cockpit as the Hercules' window frames don't match with the Stratotanker's windows.
As with most of my large aircraft mods, the skins are tga based. this means if you look for a Baby Shamu skin, you will only see a plain grey skin. When you fire it up in game, you will see a mix of ADC Grey and Baby Shamu.
AT THE START OF EACH SERIAL NUMBER IN THE DROP DOWN IS A LETTER, (a) FOR ADC Grey WITH FULL COLOR AND (s) FOR THE CAMO'D Baby Shamu SCHEME WITH SUBDUED MARKINGS
