This repaint pack is for Milton Shupe's FSX/P3D v4+ converted CDF (Cal Fire) S-2T (not the S-2T Firecat). This repaint pack represents the entire current fleet of S-2Ts in service with Cal Fire. 23 aircraft and another fictional repaint I included of T-100. The Marsh version is not to be confused with the Firecat powered by the infamous Pratt-Whitney PT-6 turboprops. The Marsh version is powered by the more powerful Garrett TPE331-14GR turboprop and has aerodynamic modifications that easily differentiate the two models. The S-2F3AT or S-2T for short boasts greater performance than Cal Fire's radial powered S-2As. The S-2T can carry 1,200 gallons of fire retardant over the S-2As 800 gallons. In the early 2000s Cal Fire replaced all of it's radial powered S-2As with the S-2F3ATs. California has 23 Turbo Trackers strategically stationed throughout the state to allow for most of the state to have initial attack missions flown on fires in 30 minutes or less. Infamous, "South Ops" in Southern California boasts 2 of the busiest air tanker bases in the country (if not the world) Ramona and Hemet-Ryan, where Cal Fire has S-2Ts actively stationed nearly 365 days a year. Repaints were constructed in P3D v4.5, and should work into earlier versions of P3D and FSX, but may require file modification. Repaints by: Nicholas Mitchell.

This is a repaint pack for Greg Pepper's CV-580 pack that's been converted to FSX Native. (also works in P3D v1-4), the air tanker version in particular. This pack holds 9 repaints in total. The Convair CV-580 was developed from the CV-240/340 family of aircraft. The CV-240/340s were originally radial powered transports from the 1950s. As the airframes aged, the want for increased performance and reliability out of the aircraft was needed. The CV-580 came to existence due to this need. The 580 differs little from it's earlier variants. However, it's largest most noticeable difference being was the retrofitting of a version of the infamous Allison T56 turboprop engine. Most notable for it's performance on aircraft such as the C-130 Hercules, P-3 Orion, and L-188 Electra. Due to the 580's similar shape and powerplant of the P-3/L-188 aircraft, some have dubbed it the "mini-P-3" or "Mini-Electra." Currently the CV-580 is operated as an air tanker only by two operators. Conair and the Government of Saskatchewan, both are operators in Canada. This pack represents 5 of Conair's CV-580s, T-42, 44, 47, 54, and 55. As well as Saskatchewan's T-471, 473, 474, and 475. These aircraft spend most of their operation in Canada. They do however, come down into the lower 48 states of the US on rare instances, and Alaska. Some were briefly contracted by the USFS to remedy a very large aircraft shortage in the US due to it's policies that crippled most of the private air tanker operators immediately following the horrific 2007 fire season. The CV-580 is capable of carrying up to 2,000 gallons of fire retardant or water. Repaints were constructed in P3D v4.5, so they shouldn't have issues in all earlier versions of FSX or P3D. FSX users will have custom thumbnails. Repaints by: Nicholas Mitchell.

The Viking (formerly Bombardier/Candair) CL-215/415 has been an infamous symbol of aerial firefighting for decades. Operators around the world have used the 215/415 platform to success. Interestingly, a part of the world that never saw much use of the 415 was the United States. Many have speculated it was one of a few reasons, the very high cost of the CL-415 and the US' already large and diverse air tanker fleet. All that changed when Aero-Flite of Spokane, Washington acquired 4 CL-415s and became the first US owned fleet of the CL-415s. With competition for more air tankers in the US has allowed for the successful integration into the USFS' contract system. The CL-415 is capable of over 3 hour loiter times and can deliver over 1,600 gallons of water, with an additional foam additive injected into it's scooped water load. Which makes for a very unique initial attack platform as well as extended attack. The 415 has been used successfully in the US before. Los Angeles County has leased 2 aircraft from Canada quite frequently in the past and present to bolster is's large rotary wing fleet. This pack represents all 4 of Aero-Flite's CL-415s as of late 2019. T-260, 261, 262, and 263 respectively. Repaints by: Nicholas Mitchell
