Leight Lights Mod for GWX & NYGM.

Leigh lights weren't operational on Allied aircraft until 6/42. However, GWX and NYGM have them operational much sooner due to each aircraft's .eqp file configuration. This small mod corrects this.
Five aircraft carry the lights in GWX; B-17, B-24, PBY Catalina, Wellington and the Sunderland. The Sunderland never carried the light so it has been eliminated from it's .eqp file.
This mod modifies each aircrafts .eqp file so that it does not have a leigh light installed until 6/42.
It is JSGME ready, assuming you are using SH3 Commander and that Commander is installed in your game installs main folder. See mod file structure for details.
If you don't use Commander, you'll have to install the four aircraft files at the appropriate time via JSGME or manually. To do this, copy each relevant aircraft's .eqp file to a folder you will use on the game date of 6/42 and later. Then, edit each of the aircraft's .eqp files in your installs data\air\<relevant aircraft> directory to elimnate any reference to the Leigh light, renumbering sections as needed.
I did a similar mod for NYGM but didn't hear back about getting permission to release it. If you'd like this function in NYGM, simply apply this mods edits to NYGM's (or any other installs) files. Note that NYGM uses the reference "REF_small01" to denote the Leigh light in it's aircraft .eqp files.
Feel free to post any questions, feedback, etc. on the subsim forum. Made with permission from the GWX team.
