 *****************************************************************************

Note: This pack will receive further updates to fix some minor glitches
      (e.g. 3D fixes), but it's ready to use and provides full functionality
      already in it's current state, so feel free to use it now and be
      prepared for updates in the future.
     
Prerequisites (mandatory!):

You must have a modded IL-2 Sturmovik 1946 game patched to 4.10.1m or later
running in order to use this mod.
Furthermore you must have some kind of "DiffFM" mod installed in order to
use this mod.
If you don't know what this is all about, we recommend to use DBW 1.71 or
SAS Modact 5 since this meets all requirements by default.

*******************************************************************************

Installation:

For IL-2 4.11.1m / 4.12m / SAS Modact 4 / SAS Modact 5 / HSFX 6:

Put this folder in your MODS/#DBW/#SAS folder
and add the following lines to air.ini:

SeafireMkXV        air.SEAFIRE15 1                   NOINFO  gb01  DESERT
SeafireFMkXVII     air.SEAFIRE17 1                   NOINFO  gb01  DESERT
SeafireFMk45       air.SEAFIRE45 1                   NOINFO  gb01  DESERT
SeafireFMk46       air.SEAFIRE46 1                   NOINFO  gb01  DESERT
SeafireFMk47       air.SEAFIRE47 1                   NOINFO  gb01  DESERT

*** Additional Step for IL-2 4.10.1m / SAS Modact 3 / HSFX5 / UP3 / DBW1.7: ***

Rename file "SeafireLate_FM" to "SeafireLate_FM_411" then
rename file "SeafireLate_FM_410" to "SeafireLate_FM"

**** Important for DBW users and those who have installed conflicting mods ****

Remove all traces of Seafire duplicates in air.ini, e.g. this line in DBW:
SeafireMkXV       air.SEAFIRE15 1                       NOINFO  gb01  DESERT
must be REMOVED, otherwise you will get duplicate and erroneous entries
in the ordnance selection or even worse, the aircraft in question will not
work at all.

*******************************************************************************
Optional you can add the following properties file entries:

To plane_ru.properties:
SeafireMkXV              Seafire F.Mk XV, 1944
SeafireFMkXVII           Seafire F.Mk XVII, 1945
SeafireFMk45             Seafire F.Mk 45, 1945
SeafireFMk46             Seafire F.Mk 46, 1946
SeafireFMk47             Seafire F.Mk 47, 1947

Would be nice if you could show us what is in your logs.lst, and please don't forget to install this mod: http://www.sas1946.com/main/index.php/topic,19308.0.html in advance because otherwise your log contents will likely be truncated.

Taken from Wikki.
Post war, the Fleet Air Arm replaced its Merlin powered Seafires with Griffon powered aircraft, initially with the Seafire Mk XV and Mk 17 and from 1948 by the definitive Seafire Mk 47. In 1950, Triumph started a tour of the Far East, embarking 800 Naval Air Squadron with Seafire 47s along with 827 Naval Air Squadron equipped with Fairey Fireflys. Following the outbreak of the Korean War, Triumph was diverted to operations to try and stem the North Korean offensive, Seafires flying ground attack and combat air patrols from July until September 1950, when Triumph was replaced by HMS Theseus, equipped with Sea Furys. During operations off Korea, Seafires flew 360 operational sorties, losing one aircraft shot down by friendly fire from a B-29 Superfortress and a second aircraft lost when its arrestor hook failed to extend. The Seafire proved more vulnerable to the stresses of carrier operation with many aircraft suffering wrinkling of the rear fuselage brought about by heavy landings. Following the end of operations, when peacetime airworthiness rules were re-imposed, all but three of 800 Squadron's Seafires were declared unserviciable owing to wrinkling.
