I had to Google for it. You learn something new everyday.


"An elephant walk is a USAF term for the taxiing of military aircraft right before takeoff, when they are in close formation. Often, it takes place right before a Minimum Interval Takeoff.(...) The term elephant walk dates to World War II when large fleets of allied bombers would conduct attacks in missions containing 1,000 aircraft. Those who observed this said that the taxiing of these large numbers of aircraft to takeoff in single file in nose-to-tail formations said that they looked like elephants walking to the next watering hole. Over time, it was incorporated into the lexicon of the United States Air Force to identify a "maximum sortie surge"." (wikipedia)

      Hi! Im pretty new in the community, but i am into sound and the game its actually really eazy to mod in that regard!

      So, im making a big sound mod with high quality samples from other games like BF4 and DCS. I´ve replacing a lot of sounds using a existing mod (Strike Figthers 2 Sounds)
      But maybe some of the sounds are still in the CAT files and i cant find them.

      Can someone help me extract all the stock Sound files from the Cat?
      Thank you.
      PD: also i plan put the Ace Combat Voices in the game but that sounds files are there.
