Default Playable Type IIb WAC 5.2

Please Read First!!! ( no readme in the early Betas )
First I credit past Authors of work on the IIa that became the Type IIa in
Ahnenerbe's TKSS18 U-boat compilation Mod.
I made these for GWX 3.0 over 2 1/2 years ago but I never released them.
I now have converted these for WAC 5.2 ( which has the most comprehensive Black Sea Campaign Yet Encountered) and with the approval
of HanSolo78 Release these early release betas for testing.

What These U-Boats are:
I stretched them to Type IIb Dimensions and changed/added details to
their appropriate positions where necessary on both the Early Type(s)
and the 1943 Wintergarten Types. ( U-9 early 99%complete, the rest to follow )
they entered service as Built, and received their wintergartens and weapons upgrades ( including two Flakzwillings and two auxiliary Luftwaffe MG-15s )
in the summer of 1943.
No the MG-15s do not work on the 1943 types but are there for absolute Historical Accuracy like the Black Sea Type IIbs.
What they are not: It is problematic to cut into existing models in a way
that gives good results without having texture problems, or a less then
appealing look in the sim. So I did not do it, but added the best I could
small 3d details to the hull to give the closest approximation to the Type IIb.
I only take credit for these original meshes resizing and editing not the Boats themselves or meshes/textures used to meet my goals, ( if you see something you did and want credit please tell me for the final release
readme )
I need WAC 5.2 Beta Testers to try these out!
Note: as these are 99% done you will notice on the early type IIb no turm eagle, and on all, no crew on deck. Those will be implemented on the final releases.
U-Boats by the Numbers and differences:
U-9 Early/1943 ( the Ritterkreuz Boot ) The RDF Antenna is external to the turm. The Funkraum is on the Starboard side in front of the control room
Bulkhead. Navigation Lights are default.
U-23 has the RDF in the inner turm as the FunkRaum/HorchRaum was moved into the command room port side. U-23 has a reduced low profile navigation light set-up.
No Read Me is included in these early releases!!! JSGME Ready!
they have a "Z" Prefix so they ( should )appear last in the MOD folder, enable last and overwrite when prompted.
U-Boats Type IIb nearly finished/ready U-9, U-18, U-19, U-23, U-24.
all with correct Navigation Lights and Turm Emblems ( as far as I can tell )

Default [TEC] U9 early

This mod is based on the original mikey117us files where reflections in the water of some Turm elements were fixed and the crew was added to the deck. Periscopes earlier version without the deflector and emblem of the Museum with the
actual U9.
