About This File

                           SAC Twilight B-52G/H Skinpack and Upgrade Package

This is a package that adds several historical skins with nose arts to the B-52G_89 and B-52H_88 aircraft. Several skins also include my skin as tga method to allow several camo schemes in one skin. It also upgrades the weapons loadouts and data.ini's for better
historical accuracy

    Included
- B-52G_89 and B-52H_88 aircraft with new loading screens, data ini, loadout ini, historical serials and nose arts
- weapons including a new B28FI_350 nuclear bomb and upgraded data inis for others
- effects and sounds for aircraft and weapons

    Installation
unzip package, put into mod folder, allow overwrites for items that you already have

    AIRCRAFT NOTES
several skins have tga based skin to represent SIOP mod, Strategic, and all grey camo. this leads to the decal folder being large (over 3.5GB).
    
    B28 NOTES
the B28FI weapon included is to represent a laydown delivered weapon. it should not be released lower than 1600 ft AGL and slower than 515kts. the B28RI weapon should not be released lower than 6000ft AGL.
not responsible for fragging is these guidelines are not met.

    Huge Thank You
to the FaceBook B-52 Stratofortress group as a whole. This group is predominantly BUFF veterans, and was a tremendous help to finding out a lot of information on BUFF markings, loadouts, and operations in the late 1980s. special mention goes out to

Jay Scales, Andrew Ferguson, John Mueller, Anthony Spencer

 

I  hope you enjoy this mod

First of all Kev I want to thank you for doing an aircraft that I have hundreds of hours in, B-52 SN 1013 (Real TA), one of the more risque nose art selections that could be found at KI Sawyer if you went to the Charlie ramp about 1990. The 644th BMS took great pride in maintaining and flying these aging (even back then) jets. It's been ages since I have seen it, as all the beautiful nose art was simply painted over with gunship grey when SAC went to ACC in 1992. But we did fly that very hull number in the final SAC bomb comp in 1992 and scored in the top three for the Air Force, so it had a great "last hurrah"..  Here is another nose art that was probably the most popular and talked about at KIS during that period, "Bridesmaid Becky", and the story behind it (a certain aircrew member was trying to woo a distant lover he met at … you guessed it … a wedding)..
