SF2 Westland Whirlwind HAR Upgrade Pack 4/19/2021
-For SF2 =ONLY= (Full 4/5 Merged Reccomended)
**NOTE: this is for the British built versions -0NLY-!!**
This is major upgrade of the Westland Whirlwind (piston powered) as released by Strahi. Please be advised, if you have the original download, you will unfortunately have to delete it from your mods folder(s). THIS version is highly modified, with many additional items. If left as "drag & drop" over the original, there will be conflicts that might be unresolvable. Thus, the need for complete removal of the original. This has been approved by Strahi, to whom I extend great thanks!!
The following services/units are covered. The first listing is the name of the skin folder itself. The rest is the description you will see on the skin selection dropdown on the Loadout Screen:
Royal Air Force:
RAF1 - No.22 Sqdn, 55-62, overall yellow
RAF2 - No.28 Sqdn, ?? date, Eurocamo*
RAF3 - No.110 Sqdn, 1954, Kuala Lampur*
JHU - Joint Helicopter Unit, HMS Ocean, Suez, 1956
RN - 848 NAS, DGNB overall, early 50s
RN2 - Ship's Flight, HMS Protector, 55-65, Antarctic Patrol
RN3 - 848 NAS, HMS Bulwark, 1960s
RN4 - 781 NAS, RNAS Yeovilton (Green Parrot)
Suez - 848 NAS, HMS Albion, Suez 56
YU - Soko Whirlwind, Yugoslavian Air Force, 1961
*= be advised, these units MAY have had the later, turbine power marks. It's also possible some of those listed above, while still having serving piston-powered Whirlwinds, would have also recieved turbine power aircraft.
The SF2 'date switch' is =NOT= used on any of the skins. I felt it would cause too many issues and confusions.
Many painted on insignia and service markings remain as such. This is due to the minimal amount of meshes used to build the aircraft. All new serial number decals have been made for all included versions (up to 26 each). As is to be expected, while all are correct for the aircraft & services depicted, they are 'generic' in nature. When a unit's or service's serials HAVE been found, you'll see the star (*) in the number list dropdown. Decal randomization is TRUE. When possible, the RAF & RN squadron badges are used at the "patch" for viewing on the Loadout Screen
On the aircraft selection drop down list, you'll see:
Whirlwind HAR/HC (st)
The (st) is for Strahi, and will diferentiate this Whirlwind for any others that may or may not exist.
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. PLEASE read them, before installing!!!
added missing Decals folders!!
