SBD-2/3 Daunless, VS-6, USS Enterprise, Pearl Harbor

SBD-3 Dauntless Skin, VS-6, USS Enterprise; for SF/WoV/WoE PTO installs


"Pearl Harbor Defenders" - American Bombers


This skin and Ini Update Pak for Wolf257's SBD Dauntless dive bomber represents VS-6 (Scouting Squadron 6) as based aboard USS Enterprise in December, 1941.


Coloring and Decals represent the standard type markings as seen on Naval/Marine aircraft of the time, and include NEW BuNums and aircraft type name on the tail. BuNums are accurate, as they ARE from -2 & -3 Dauntless', but my research has only turned up 6 actual numbers as used by VS-6 that day. Unfortunately, they are the aircraft that were lost...

A new decal is also used for the arrestor hook; it finally gets some color :)


Ini mods include (yes, yet again!) some small lighting corrections from my pervious release of several years ago, modification of the StartYear; I've made it earlier, and the addition of a seat for the pilot to 'park it' on. The cockpit ini has a replacement 'ring-and-bead' type sight that is closer to the reticle in the (then) standard telescopic site used on all the early model (up until the -5 variant) Dauntless.



-= NOTE: You MUST have the Bunyap Weapons Pak of 6/06 to get the WW2 weapons and guns and such =-

-== This aircraft has been tested in SF/WoV/WoE and post-patch WoI (8/08) as well as post 9/08 & 10/08 SF/WoV/WoE. There still are some 'issues' with prop-plane flight models, but there has been a MARKED improvement!! You use it in these Post Patch Environments at YOUR own risk ==-


As always, unzip this to a temp folder somwhere, and you'll have access to the rest of the readme for it's instructions.


Good Hunting!

ps: this was supposed to be released in Feburary, 2009, but somehow got mislaid the shuffle! So, here it is now!
