Operation Desert Storm Skinpack and Updates for B-52G_89



                                                                                                                                            Operation Desert Storm Skinpack and Updates for B-52G_89

    This Mod will add ODS skins for the B-52G_89 found here

some weapon, ini, effects and sound edits are also included to enhance the operation of this classic bomber

    Included:

Updated and reskinned B-52G_89, Decal set that puts multiple camoflages on each skin and at least a dozen Historical aircraft with Unit markings and nose art, updated weapons common to that version of the aircraft, a fake gunpod pylon for use with dual MERs, and updated sounds and effects.

    Historical Notes:

Although you can fly em all, the only accurate skin to fly within ODS would be the Jeddah skin. The others flew from off of the various Iraq terrains available.
Bomb missions markings not included as these are set to represent the beginning of the campaign.
While many other weapons can be carried, the improved ones are the ones carried during Desert Storm, and strategic weapons (nukes)
While ALCM pylon is missing (more below), it only affects the Senior Surprise mission from Barksdale AFB (16-17 Jan 1991). The other Bomb Wings did not employ CALCMs

    Installation:

unzip. put all folders EXCEPT Templates into desired mod folder. Allow overwrites as needed.

    Known Issues:

While there is currently a new Hound Dog pylon selectable in the download menu, there is not an ALCM pylon. While some sources state that the CALCMs were carried on the stub pylons, I find that not too likely.but it is how it is carried in game at this time. Either I will learn Blender and create one in the future, or a volunteer would be welcomed to create one (likely a faster route). But at time of initial release (24/12/2018) the cruise missiles are carried on the stubs.

      View File KC-135 Skin Pack 1: Operation Desert Storm
       
      This skinpack adds in historical aircraft as used in Desert Storm for the A, E and R models KC-135. It is as close as possible with unit markings and features several nose arts.
          Included
      Skins and decals for KC-135A/E/R models
      Cockpit and ini edits to make player flyable

          Required
      you will need the original KC-135 pack available here
       
          Installation
      download and install the above mod per its instructions
      unzip this mod, then install new mod folder categories to your mod folder (Aircraft to aircraft etc)
      allow overwrites
      fire up game, take off and go pass gas
          KNOWN ISSUES
      This was originally an AI only aircraft. I added Dels C-130 pit so that it was flyable and I could check my work. That said, it is best to not fly from the cockpit as the Hercules' window frames don't match with the Stratotanker's windows.
         UNIQUE FEATURES
      As with most of my large aircraft mods, the skins are tga based. this means if you look for a Baby Shamu skin, you will only see a plain grey skin. When you fire it up in game, you will see a mix of ADC Grey and Baby Shamu.
      AT THE START OF EACH SERIAL NUMBER IN THE DROP DOWN IS A LETTER, (a) FOR ADC Grey WITH FULL COLOR AND (s) FOR THE CAMO'D Baby Shamu SCHEME WITH SUBDUED MARKINGS
