Operation Desert Storm Skinpack and Updates for B-52G_89
This Mod will add ODS skins for the B-52G_89 found here
some weapon, ini, effects and sound edits are also included to enhance the operation of this classic bomber
Updated and reskinned B-52G_89, Decal set that puts multiple camoflages on each skin and at least a dozen Historical aircraft with Unit markings and nose art, updated weapons common to that version of the aircraft, a fake gunpod pylon for use with dual MERs, and updated sounds and effects.
Although you can fly em all, the only accurate skin to fly within ODS would be the Jeddah skin. The others flew from off of the various Iraq terrains available.
Bomb missions markings not included as these are set to represent the beginning of the campaign.
While many other weapons can be carried, the improved ones are the ones carried during Desert Storm, and strategic weapons (nukes)
While ALCM pylon is missing (more below), it only affects the Senior Surprise mission from Barksdale AFB (16-17 Jan 1991). The other Bomb Wings did not employ CALCMs
unzip. put all folders EXCEPT Templates into desired mod folder. Allow overwrites as needed.
While there is currently a new Hound Dog pylon selectable in the download menu, there is not an ALCM pylon. While some sources state that the CALCMs were carried on the stub pylons, I find that not too likely.but it is how it is carried in game at this time. Either I will learn Blender and create one in the future, or a volunteer would be welcomed to create one (likely a faster route). But at time of initial release (24/12/2018) the cruise missiles are carried on the stubs.
