SF2 French Navy F6F-5 Hellcat and F4U-7 Corsair

SF2 French Navy F6F-5 Hellcat and F4U-7 Corsair


= For SF2, Full-4/5 Merged (Full-5 Reccomended/Preferred) =


This pak could also be called "Post-War French Naval Aviation".


*Note: There is a distinct probability that this mod will =NOT= work in SF/Wo* 1stGen game installs. However, some data ini and other statements will =NOT= be in effect in 1stGen SF/Wo* at any patch level (with the possible exception of WoI plus it's ExpansionPak -this has not been tested, as I ONLY mod for SF2). It is designed for use in SF2/SF2NA, at the most CURRENT patch level. Your milage will vary!*


*Note x2: built/tested in the SF2NA Environment; Again, your milage will vary*


The pack contains the following aircraft, skin/decal sets:


F6F-5 Hellcat:

Flotille 1, aboard Arromanches, early 1950s in Indochina


F4U-7 Corsair:

Flotille 14, aboard Arromanches 1950s, Indochina

Flotille 15, circa 1956, with Suez yellow/black 'Invasion Stripes'


FMs have been adjusted as per the KAW Corsairs, and the WW2 USN Hellcat. Skins on the Corsair have been conveted to jpg format; the skin for the Hellcat remains in tga format. Decal randomization is TRUE for all.

Both aircraft are "stand alone versions", nationalized for French Navy usage.

All sounds, weapons, pilot figures, etc are included. New SF2-style hangar screens were created for both aircraft.


The canopy for both works via Standard Animation Keystroke; Shift/0. The wingfold on the Hellcat does NOT work; however, the Corsair's does (I didn't break this one!). Use it's Standard Animation Keystroke; Shift/9.

Both aircraft are fully carrier capable in the SF2/SF2NA environment.


When in-game, you'll see


F6F-5 Hellcat (FN)


F4U-7 Corsair (FN)


in the Aircraft Selection Drop-down window.


As a bonus, included are also Optional modifications to the following terrains:





These have modified _water.bmps that have the 'green CV Zones' added. V-SEA has them approximatly for Yankee & Dixie stations. IME has them approximately for Operation Musketeer (56 Suez Crisis). Both terrain's main and nations' ini have been expanded to include 'FrenchNavy'.

Also, you'll be needing to extract the Game's Nations.ini, and make one small adjustment to it. Instructions are below, in the "To Install" section.


And.. by downloading now, an extra added bonus!!! a couple of FN ships:

R95 Arromanches aircraft carrier, from PauloPanz's "9 Carriers" mod pak (with minor changes by me)

Le Brix class destroyers, based on Hinchbrooks' C-Class DD. A pure stand-in; but something was needed for the CVBG. This will have to suffice for now.


As always, fairly easy to follow, yet detailed install instructions are included. So, please -READ- them. Also, give the "Notes" section a read too for futher explinations, clarifactions, illuminations and so forth.


Happy Landings!
