Brixmis Chipmunk T10 and templates

This was a quick and dirty mod to provide templates for the rerelease of the de Havilland Chipmunk Trainer and a skin to represent the BRIXMIS recon mission.

             Requirements

You will need the original aircraft available here
https://combatace.com/files/file/17262-sf2-dhc-1-chipmunk-pack/
otherwise, this should work in any version of SF2

Installation
unzip main folder.

Place objects folder in the objects folder of your chosen install.

place templates folder wherever you need to, in order to create more skins. templates are available in xcf for Gimp users and psd for Photoshop users


note: the patches layers are set to create a ribbed effect on the pertinent airfoils. they are set so that you should be able to use them with any other design


BRIXMIS History
 The British Commander in Chiefs Mission or BRIXMIS for short was a mission that used the legal ability of a certain number of British servicemembers to roam the
Soviet Zone of Occupation, generally known as East Germany. Reciprocity was enjoyed by the Soviets in the former British Zone of Occupation.

The airborne component of BRIXMIS flew out of RAF Gatow in Berlin. An observer rode in the front and took pictures of Soviet military activities and equipment within
a 20 mile radius of Berlin, flying under cover of "exercising the right to navigate within the flight corridors to and from Berlin".

Serials provided are in pairs for each period of time operated, but in one overall skin

WK303, WK587 from 1956-1966
WP850, WP971 from 1966-1974
WZ862, WD289 from 1974-1988
WG466, WG486 from 1988-1990

I did not know about BRIXMIS, so thank you so much for adding this bit of history to Strike Fighters.
