  1. P-38L Operation Kadesh What If WOI/SFP1

    1956 Operation Kadesh 
    P-38L Lightning Israeli Air Force (101 Squadron) 'What If?'
    A simple Israeli Air Force Skin for Wolf257's P38. This is a 'what if' skin (Israel never purchased or operated the P38 AFAIK) so this is just for fun! Tested on Wings Over Israel only but I imagine it will work on SFP1/SFG although you might need to play with the decals first!
     
    Enjoy!

  2. P-38F Lighting, 94th FS, MTO 42-43

    P-38F Lightining, 94th Fighter Squadron; for SF/SFG/WoV/WoE MTO Installs
     
    This is a new skin for Wolf257's Lightinig, and my mod of it into the P-38F Lightning. It is desinged to replace the "Generic OD1943" skin for use in your MTO-themed WW2 game install.
     
    This skin is based off Wolf's original templates that came with his "WW2 Planes Pak", that I've made a few little enhancements too. New panel lines, weathering and some detail work to the interior sections have been added (look around, and you'll find them!)
    All new decals for serial and ID letters have been created, to represent aircraft from the 94th Fighter Squadron "Hat In The Ring", 1st Fighter Group as they appeared when in service in North Africa/MTO during late 1942 through late 1943. Hence, the use of the Operation Torch yellow-outlined fuselage star, and the plane star roundel on the wings. Research seems to indicate the yellow-outline was used by the 94th well into 1943, until replaced by the red-outlined star-and-bar, which only lasted a few months itself before being replaced by the blue-outlined star-and-bar. Then they moved up to later model Lightnings, in OD/Gray and then to Natural Metal finish.
    Serial numbers ARE accurate for F model Lightnings, but I was unable to match ID letters to serials, excepting for UN-Q; that one IS the correct serial. Consider the serials as "generic" for this usage.
     
    As always, it's reccomended you unzip this package to a temp folder or your desktop, or somewhere's else that's easy to find to gain access to the rest of this readme for full, detailed install instructions.
     
    Happy Landings!

  5. Lockheed P-38L - Aeronautica Militare Italiana

    Lockheed P-38L Lightning - Italian Air Force - 3^ Stormo Caccia (1948-1954)
    Forgotten Lightnings Part 1
    ---skin for P-38L by Wolf257---
    size: 2048x2048 (main .bmp, others in 512x512 and 256x256)
     
     
    -------------------Historical notes-----------
    In the 1946, 100 Lightnings, parked in open storage at Napoli-Capodichino airfield, were assigned
    to newborn Aeronautica Militare Italiana. The IMM (Industrie Meccaniche Meridionali, later Aerfer)
    overhauled a total of 93 planes (including 20 recon F-5.) The first unit to receive the Lightings was the 4^ Stormo Caccia (June 1946-April 1948). In 1948 the 4^ Stormo was rearmed with the P-51D, and the P-38s were assigned
    to 3^ Stormo Caccia (1948-1954). From September 1948 to July 1952, four F-5s were assigned to Nucleo Sperimentale Volo at Roma-Guidonia (later "Reparto Sperimentale Volo"), and used in 34 "ferret" flights over Yugoslavia and Albania. The Lightning was finally retired from servince in July 1956.
     
    Others units equipped with the P-38L:
    Reparto Volo 4a ZAT (Zona Aerea Territoriale)
    SCOT, Scuola Caccia Ognitempo (All-weather Fighter School)
    Sezione Aerofotografica, 56th TAF (Tactical Air Force)
     
    65 P-38L (L-5 and L-10 version, one in Droop Snoot configuration?)
    2 P-38J (not confirmed)
    20 F-5E-4, F, G recon Lightnings. (including a single F-5B?)
    6 P-38DC double-seater advanced trainers, modified under FIAT design. (DC= Doppi Comandi. First flight: April 29, 1948)
     
    30 planes were lost in service due to engines failures, undercarriage crashes and pilots mistakes.
     
    Note about skin: light decals distortions under the nacelles.
    No solution at this time, sorry...
     
    -------------------Installation:----------------------
    Unzip the skin in a temporany folder.
    Drop the "3^Stormo" folder in your P-38L installation
     
    Please see the readme for others details and stuffs.
