Thanks to the collaboration among many squad members and with the amazing work of Darkness-of-Enigma, Vic Viper, and all accredited in this release, we present to you, one of the best things to hit your YS folders! This is the official combat aircraft pack for the 49th featuring some of the most impressive technology for one of the most advanced groups in YS Flight, the VFA-49 Ghosthawks!.

We are a futuristic, westernized, naval squadron based in the early 2020's. As such, our pack represents this. We do however, have much love for a variety of aircraft from different eras and branches. As you take a look, you'll notice many classic aircraft, such as the Blackbird, Nighthawk, and A-10. Many of them, however, have been modified with naval capabilities and a futuristic look. Thanks to Darkness and others, we also have many amazing fictional aircraft as well, with influence from games like the Ace Combat series. There is truly something for everyone.


A Brief Note on Stealth: As in previous releases, our pack has a large amount of real world/real modified or fictional stealth aircraft. However, the stealth of the aircraft can change. Any aircraft that carries external weapons will have it's stealth negated to a point, and with some aircraft; B-70B, B-1R, B-2A, R/F-12A, RAH-66, F-35B and F-22N (of which has droppable pylons) will have their RCS go up when the "bomb bay" is open. In addition to this, there are "clean" and "heavy" version of certain aircraft (RAH-66, F/A-18F, F-35B) with the heavy versions featuring external weapon mounts that disrupt the stealth profile of their air-frames. Other aircraft (MQ-92, E-2R, EA-18G, ASFX, and S-38C) feature electronic jammers to reduce the effectiveness of enemy missiles. We aimed for features, fun, and balance, and I hoped we've achieved this with this release.
A big shout out to Darkness of Enigma, not only for all the logos, and most of the aircraft in this pack, but also for bringing new ideas to the table that we had never considered before! As a special treat, you'll also find a preview of his never before released aircraft available as a separate install (SOD)!

Love the MOAB and the Cruise Missile. Excellent work. I hope one day the Grun will have as nice a squad pack as this, but I have a strong feeling that'll be a pipe dream. My Thanks to the developers for making this amazing pack.

A most impressive release. We've been thinking about adding a combat drone to the 171st lineup, so It's nice to see that you added one. My complements to DoE, and everyone who worked on this pack.

You'll have a blast with the A/CM, Swift. It's like a SLAM-ER.
Quick tip for everyon on the A/CM. About a second Before Impacting your target, drop the "fuel tank" to arm the warhead. If you don't, the blast won't kick in and it'll be just as good as a AGM-45.

...quite sure 7z can open zip files. Any filesize savings with 7z would probably be insignificant anyway. Furthermore, people without 7z would be burdened to download and install 7z just to open the file, so the standard compression method here is zip to ensure compatibility across platforms.

Hell I would love to pack OYS in Rar, would save me quite a bit of bandwidth - but I use zip because I care about the end user - also why I added SettingsGUI.exe, because I knew the change would not be perfectly acceptable to all. ;)

Its not correct, RAR is proprietary and non-free format, so you must pay for RAR.
7zip is free and open format, and it have better compression level then RAR and ZIP. (for now almost Linux can use 7zip as zip or tar.gz)
My problem is in file size, and not in format instead. I use mobile and GPRS, so for me size of ZIP is large.
.
Anyway, if somebody will repack this package in 7zip, please give me a link!
