Repaint of the absolutely awesome F-86F Sabre by SECTIONF8 (available at AVSIM), depicting a Canadair Sabre Mk.6 of 1./JG 71 'Richthofen'. This particular plane was flown by its Geschwaderkommodore Erich Hartmann, WWII fighter ace.
These are overdone textures (complete set!) of my previous "sabre_ja111.zip" texture set.
(NOT required to use these textures!)
After considering more sources, I decided to rework my textures, uploaded on November 16th.
In respect of the overwhelming realism of the aircraft rendition, my first attempt of depicting the "JA-111" did not seem adequate anymore to me.
What's changed? "Iron Cross" insignia are changed into the earlier, 'leaner' version, "Richthofen" squadron crest of JG 71 is now beared on both sides, "JA-111" marking without white fringe, corrected rescue and caution markings, added aircraft numbering on the tailfin (not readable, but believe me: it's there!).
