Why is it called a `hack pack`?

?? It's focus is hack aircraft

Hacks are aircraft that stand in for another. During the war, a 'hack' was a plane to tool around in and make short trips. Like a taxi cab, also known as a hackney carriage, or 'hack' for short. But in skinning, it's just a substitute aircraft

For example: The AVG didn't have P-40Cs, but in this pack of skins, I make skins for the P-40C, which are substitutes for the H81A-2 in a few missions, so the player can carry bombs. It is a hack that simulates jury-rigged bomb racks on AVG aircraft

The 'Empire Flying Boat' is a hack made from the H8K

The 'Ki-48s' are hacks made from the SB 2m100A

The remaining skins were included to try and keep down the number of downloads needed. For instance, I'd hate to make a download pack for three pilot skins. Seems like a waste of time. So they got put into the hackpack, instead of getting their own download. Same for the single C-47 skin and the Hurri skins
