"Quarantine Approved - Essential Mods"
This package contains a new aircraft, the McDonnell F2H-2 Banshee, as used by the US Navy during the Korean War. That being said, this package =ONLY= contains those units that participated in the conflict. There are 4 units (skins) included in this package. In chronological order:
VF-172 Blue Bolts (USS ESSEX, 1951)
VF-11 Red Rippers (USS KEARSARGE, 1952)
VF-22 Cavaliers -
VF-62 Gladiators (both aboard USS LAKE CHAMPLAIN, 1953)
The textureset inis for all skins has a listing of the exact dates of deployment.
All markings, excepting squadron color bands, are decals. Decal Randomization is TRUE. 24 Modex numbers are supplied for each unit. The 24 'data plaque" BuNums are a pool shared among all the aircraft. Those units that are listed in the game's Squadron List, have their Displayed Name activated by my Patent-Pending 'Fake SqTail' decal. All weapons, sounds, and a pilot figure are supplied. New "box-art" style hangar and loading screens are also included, as is a spare "photo" style loading screen if you get bored with the painting.
Wingfold and canopy operations are the Standard Animation Keystrokes (tm), Shift/0 (zero) for the canopy, and Shift/9 for the wings.
When in-game, you'll see
F2H-2 Banshee (V2K)
on the aircraft selection drop-down list. This will diferentiate it from any other Banshees you may, or may not, have.
As is always recommended, unzip to a temp folder or your desktop to give easy access to the rest of this readme for it's install instructions. Also, =PLEASE= read the 'Notes' section for other IMPORTANT information on in-game operations.
