Mod Information

Features a LIGHTNING replacement with HWP capacity. 
It is the vanilla LIGHTNING, the exception it can bring up to 2 Heavy Weapons Platform (tank) into combat;
Comes in  either 12, 14, or 16 squad versions.

 

The Lightning 97 series has the interior equipment moved over a bit to accommodate up to TWO HWP tanks.
Otherwise the equipment consoles are laid out the same as in vanilla.
The stairs have been doubled as well as the front door to let the tanks out.
The doors allow entry and exit but without animation, however nobody can shoot inside the moment the LIGHTINING lands which is a big positive for that craft.

----------------------------------------------
How glorious it was to discover OPENXCOM.  
What a marvellous achievement to tweak XCOM the way we individually like!

I always liked to edit a bit the LIGHTNING, a beautiful craft
With  at least 1 HWP tank is all it needs, fine otherwise, I think.

I located my original XCOM install and the LIGHTNING I was working on with XcomUTIL back in the 90's.  It was an ongoing struggle since the soldiers kept spawning outside above the craft while the tanks properly positioned inside.
With OPENXCOM things became so much easier with the .rul files 
and soldiers and tanks now spawn as they should!.

The Lightning 97 series has the interior equipment moved over a bit to accommodate up to TWO HWP tanks.
Otherwise the equipment consoles are laid out the same as in vanilla.
The stairs have been doubled as well as the front door to let the tanks out.
The doors allow entry and exit but without animation, however nobody can shoot inside the moment the LIGHTINING lands which is a big positive for that craft.
