About This File

23d Wing Pope AFB 1994

In the 1990s, the USAF experimented with composite wings that would have everything needed within a single unit for deployment into a regional fight.
The 23 Wing was formed in 1992 to bring about this vision, as applied to direct support of US Army forces. By 1994, 4 squadrons were ready at Pope AFB NC
to support the US Army's 82d ABN DIV at neighboring Fort Bragg. The 2d and 41st Airlift Squadrons flying the C-130E Hercules, the 74th Fighter Squadron flying
the F-16C/D Block 40 Vipers, and the 75th Fighter Squadron flying the A-10A Warthog. As is tradition for the 23d Wing, which traces its lineage to the
Flying Tigers of World War 2, every aircraft in the wing sported a sharks mouth.

This mod brings together everything needed to get the 23d Wing into the fight. Complete aircraft (including a newly revamped F-16D Block 40 from ravenclaw007), period specific weapons, sounds and effects.

Included
Viper Team F-16C Block 40 and 75th FS skin
ravenclaw007/Viper Team F-16D Block 40 and 75th FS skin
Dels C-130E_SKE with 2d ALS, 41st ALS Grey and 23d Wing Euro 1 skins
Various period specific weapons (actively in use 1994-1996)

Installation
unzip folder * drop into mod folder of your choice * allow overwrites

Known Issues
The C-130 and its weapons are primarlily eye candy. There are unfortuneatly no paratroop drop missions in SF2, and so if you want to drop say 1/325 INF onto a drop zone,
you will need to select a recon mission and punch those partarooper out by hand
I have been having issues getting the LAPES Sheridan tank to create a "crater" after dropping. it is still included for the visuals of puching a tank out the back of a Herk,
and because there was still an Airborne Armor Bn at Bragg in 1994. But at this time the tank will disappear on contact with the ground

I hope you enjoy this mod. After 12 years total at Ft Bragg (all but 4 of them seeing the Hogs overhead near everyday) this one was a bit more personal than some other mods

Blocks 15, 15 OCU: It wouldnt hurt. but i'm not pushing the one working the models for it. Besides, this mod only has the Block 40s

Blocks 1, 5, and 10 are based off TW stock model. fuss at TK for that one :lol:
