The V-42/GA Orca was converted for Civilian use in the Blue Zones.
With weapons removed, the Missile bays were converted to hold cargo,
And Instruments for General Aviation purpose were installed.

This unarmed Orca is used as Personal transport craft and for Racing.
While military advance is the main goal of GDI, there exists a need to give the people a way to enjoy and be inspired.

Huge Thank you to:

Thecatbaron for allowing me to use his Radio and Transponder!

V For general help in setting it for VR and other help.

    Updated the XML, the left buttons on the Radio affected Yaw control surfaces I had set to "None"...
    so it made the Orca roll violently.
    fixed now.
    Thank you @Opera for noticing.

    @V2 It's all good, I think the points should go to newer players anyway, or to the makers of the parts I used ;)
    your adjustments to the cockpit and "debugging" little things was more than enough help :)
