2 'what if' repaints for the XF-11 Redux package. A 1946 RAF requirement for a long range, high altitude
strategic recconiassance aeroplane to supplant war-weary Mosquito's, resulted in a small number of R-11A's being taken on charge,
as Athena PR.Mk.I, and Mk.IA's with special electronic equipment, pending introduction of the Canberra.
With a pressurized cockpit, service ceiling in excess of 49,000 ft, 4000 miles+ range, and a 400kt groundspeed at altitude,the
20 or so Athena's roamed at will across the Iron Curtain, providing targeting data,weather,ELINT and strike route information
for RAF Strike Command, and remained in RAF service untill 1958. 2 aeroplanes are depicted in standard dinural and nocturnal schemes of the day.
Not without precident, as a small number of RB-45C's were bailed to the RAF for clandestine overflights of the East Bloc in the early'50's.
Also includes 2 revised Config.files, adding landing light,beacon,strobes and position light, one standard FS lights, and one for ShockWave payware
lights.Contrails added at -29 F, airshow smoke moved to position on #2 engine exhaust, red VC lighting, exhaust flame effect (on cockpit light key-
CTRL-L) and start-up effect. Tested in FSX SP1.
