SF2 WW2/Post-War Lockheed P-38L Lightning

SF2 WW2/Post-War Lockheed P-38L Lightning 4/9/2014


-- Something for, well, Anyone! --


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


Some mods for Wolf257's P-38L Lightning give you a version for late WW2 and the early Post War Time frame.

While keeping the standard WW2 start date, the service time has been extended to include some use by the newly formed USAF (post October, 1947). Meaning, retirement date is December 1949 (approximately true!). This is =NOT= a "What If..." aircraft.


2 skins are included, both are in Natural Metal. They're names are:


NM (a generic type, with plane-in-group numbers)

USAF (with post-1947 markings)


There are no squadron or unit markings for either skin. There is litterally NO data available.

The NM skin can be used pretty much anywere for WW2. The USAF skin will automtically "switch on" in 10/1947.

All new skins (now with rivets!!) are in jpg format. Both aircraft use a 'pool' of Serial numbers and they should be considered 'generic' in nature, but ARE for the model variant depicted. The post-1947 skin has the addition of "Buzz Numbers", that have the correct letter prefix assigned to P-38s

All markings are decals, and decal randomization is TRUE. All weapons, sounds, and a pilot figure are included. Both skins have individual Hangar Screens.


When in game, you'll see:


P-38L Lightning (Post War) (w)


This, and the folder being name "P-38L_pw" will seperate it from any WW2 types you may have. The "PW" is for "Post War". The "W" is for Wolf, further diferentiating this from other Lightnings that you may or may not have.


As always, fairly easy to follow, yet detailed install instructions are included. So, please read them!


Good Hunting!

Kevin, this is a very good idea!


May I suggest to You to upgrade to actual SF-2 standard the original Spitwulf skins here http://combatace.com/files/category/179-p-38/ to complete the postwar P-38L collection?


.... sometimes we have a real gold mine in older SF-1 uploads to re-discover.
