    2. MiG-31A_Iran

      /// ------ MiG-31A What if--> Iran got some MiG-31's --------- ///     This is my First Aircraft mod upload so go easy:)    I used the MiG-31BM from the "MiG-BM_update pak" downloaded from Combat Ace SF2 MiG-31 Downloads.  There is no readme file attached just said jv44 is the original creator and want to thank him for the skin and lod file.   I tweaked the Data ini file to make nodes operational along with making the MiG-31A as an attack aircraft. Designed to attack the US Navy I am sure this is what Iran wanted it for. This Aircraft was put together with SF1 and SF2 Freeware Items. This Foxbat will for sure test your fleet and put the pressure on the F-14 Tomcats!!!

    3. SF2 MiG-23MF fighter- Cockpit, working Mig-23MF HUD, and aircraft

      Included is the fully working MiG-23MF 'Flogger-B', cockpit and working Mig-23MF HUD cockpit converted to SFP2.
       
      This MiG-23MF swing wing fighter saw much combat and claimed multiple kills over the years. The Mig-23/Mig-27 was the most important Soviet fighter type from the mid-to-late 1970s. It was designed to replace the famous MiG-21.
       
      The MiG-23MF was a first generation MiG-23 and was not designed for close-in maneuvering. This would come with the later second generation MiG-23ML ("L"  for lightweight).  However, the MiG-23MF was still formidable if used as a hit and run fighter.
       
      Short takeoff and landing was a major consideration in the case of a NATO vs WARSAW Pact confrontation. Also, the Mig-23 was designed to be able to be able to accept or decline combat against western fighters using hit and run tactics- maneuverability being a secondary consideration. As a result, it was designed to be faster in speed, faster accelerating and faster climbing than most western fighters...in which it mostly suceeded. It was much faster climbing than the F-4 Phantom with a reported initial climb rate of 45,000+ feet per minute.
       
      However, it reportedly had an even higher wing loading than the Phantom of about 94/lbs per sq feet at normal takeoff weight and normal wing sweep. One of the contributing results was reportedly a very poor instantaneous turn rate of 11.5 degrees per second at Mach .9 at 15,093 feet and 8.6 degrees per second at Mach .5 at 15,093 feet (Mike Spick-Illustrated Directory of Fighters). The Mig-21 reportedly had a much better maximum instantaneous turn rate of around 18.9 deg/sec. in some configurations. Although a lot of factors are involved in instantaneous turn rates, it does give a general idea.
       
      It equipped more Soviet fighter and attack regiments than any other Soviet fighter then in service in the 1970s. Over a thousand were estimated to be confronting NATO from both Soviet and WARSAW Pact nations.
       
      This is from the original Mirage Factory (although it has been modified by so many people over the years that it is basically a new aircraft).
       
      This Mig-23MF was a major production model after 1978. It could fire beyond visual range (BVR) missiles even for foreign countries and had a standard internal 23mm gun. Its radar was thought to be broadly comparable to the McDonnell Douglas F4J Phantoms' radar...formidable indeed.
       
      Mig-23s emerged victorious against maneuvering Western-trained Mirage F-1s over Africa on 27 September 1987, so the Mig-23's weapons systems could be effective.
      http://www.acig.org/...ticle_184.shtml
       
      You can download the original Mirage Factory Mig-23 SFP1 package here:
      http://forum.combata...p;showfile=5211
       
      The Mig-23MF was the first major production version and also used largely for export. It saw combat in the Middle East with Syria and reportedly had some F-4 and F-16 kills.
       
      It was a much improved export version after the previous MS version. The Warsaw pact, India, Lybia, Syria, Egypt, Cuba and others used the MF version. It fired radar-guided missiles and so was a BVR threat with its AA-7 Apex missiles.
       
      Pilot report http://www.warbirdso...87/Default.aspx
       
      This was so complicated to make work in SFP2, that I had to end up just making it one complete download. If it wasn't loading or blowing up on the runway, then the HUD was not visible, the pilot was out of his seat, the plane was invisible, or the cockpit was invisible, pieces were flying permanently along side you in flight blocking your view, you were flying sideways, and you could not pick weapons. It took pieces from endless airplanes and projects to finally make it work including parts from SFP2.
       
      To my surprise, -the jewel-, the extremely complex Mig-23MF working HUD from Starfighter in SFP1 actually started working!
       
      Directions:
       
      1) Back up your Mig-23MF folder.
       
      2) Just download the whole filefolder Mig-23MF intact into your SFP2 aircraft folder as one folder....ie into the C:\mydocuments\thirdwire\SFP2\objects\aircraft
       
      3) When asked to overwrite say yes.
       
      -Finished!
       
       
       
      MiG-23M 'Flogger-B' First production fighter
      MiG-23MF 'Flogger-B' Improved MiG-23M with a new radar and an infrared sensor pod, major production model after 1978
       
       
      For strengths, it had incredible acceleration that reportedly equalled the later F-16 and F-15s. It also had an incredible climb rate and almost unmatched speed at low altitudes.
       
      For weaknesses, it had a terribly slow turn, slow rate of roll and high angle of attack limitations and vicious stall characteristics in certain situations. Better keep it fast.
       
      Good tactics in the MF are to sneak in fast at a low altitude, shoot and then run or use your fantastic rate of climb and acceleration in a vertical fight.
      ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
      FLIGHT NOTES FROM A MiG-23 PILOT: The Mig-23 had incredible strengths and incredible weaknesses.
       
      WEAKNESSES: For weaknesses, most Mig-23s never could turn or roll very well compared to its enemies and had very heavy controls. Its roll was hurt by its control system (spoilers and a diferential tail and the disconnection of spoilers at any but 16 degrees).
       
      In close combat, the earlier versions in particular were a deathtrap because unless the pilot stayed within certain tight maneuvering limits, it would often lose control and simply crash. Its cockpit visiblility was one of the worst of any fighter. Visibility is life in a dogfight.
       
      It had slushy controls in many areas of its flight regime and its nose would often hunt back and forth. Its unpredictable accelerated stall was often taking ones life into ones hands if attempted. It also had the typical Soviet disadvantage of a very short range. There are reports of its radar not working much of the time and it often not being mission ready.
       
      It is hard to use an aircraft if it is not working.
       
      Red Eagles, Steve Davies "Flying the Mig-23"
       
      http://books.google....result&resnum=4
       
      It is true that later versions had much improved handling/systems. However, I understand that maneuvering limits still existed.

    5. TW_C-130A_2048pixel_Photoshop_Template

      Skin Template for the ThirdWire C-130A Hercules.

      It can be used for SF1 or SF2.

      This template is a .psd file at 2048 pixels. It can be reduced for those with low spec computers.

      It was made using Photoshop.

      Before anyone asks if I can make the lines and rivets darker or lighter, this template allows you to do that yourself by adjusting the opacity of the lines, rivets or any layer of this file. To use it you must have a paint program that reads/modifies .psd files.

      Then you can adjust the specular, glossiness and/or reflection entries in the skin's texture.ini file to get the skin to your liking.

      Add your own dirt and weathering.

      If you just want the Natural Metal / Silver skin depicted in the attached picture, PM me.

      If you need help, PM me.

      INSTALLATION:  Unzip to a folder/place of your choice.  Copy, Move, Drag-n-Drop or do whatever you wish to get the skin folder into your XXX folders.  Choose the desired skin in the loadout section.  Fly.

      I'm releasing this under the Combat Ace Fair Use Agreement. Use it anyway you wish for personal use.  For any other use, please contact me first. 

      If you find any problems with it, please PM me.  If you improve it, please PM me a copy. 

      Thanks to all who are helping me learn to skin by direct involvement and/or by inspiration.

      If I forget or miss anyone who deserves credit for anything I release, I apologize.  I have no intent to abuse or misuse anyone's property or claim it as my own.  Please contact me to correct any error.

    7. SF2 Polish Air Force JAS-39E/F Gripen NG

      In 2014, the Polish MoD decided to replace the fleet of Polish Air Force's ageing MiG-29s, which were becoming more and more obsolete and not suitable with the requirements of modern combat. The new promising Swedish design of an upgraded JAS-39 was chosen and the deliveries began in 2018 with 64 aircraft purcahsed in total, both one- and two-seaters.
      That's the little background story. The mod itself includes the E and F versions of the aircraft. It is generally based on USAF Gripen NG mod by @dtmdragon which you can find here https://combatace.com/files/file/16048-f-39ab-griffin-blk-15-gripen-ng-for-the-us/?tab=comments
      The pack includes:
      JAS-39E
      22 Baza Lotnictwa Taktycznego (Tactical Air Base) skin with the "Knight flagship" paintscheme (aircraft no. 6036) 23 Baza Lotnictwa Taktycznego skin with the "Kosciuszko flagship" paintscheme (aircraft no. 6020) 23 Baza Lotnictwa Taktycznego special NATO Tiger Meet paintscheme JAS-39F
      22 Baza Lotnictwa Taktycznego paintscheme 23 Baza Lotnictwa Taktycznego paintscheme  
      All respective credits go to the creators of the original Gripen model, you will find the list here, many thanks to them: https://combatace.com/files/file/14351-tsf-saab-jas-39-gripen-flygvapnet-package/
      Important note: the aircraft in this pack DO NOT use 100% accurate Gripen NG models but rather modified JAS-39C/D. I am not a 3D modder and I couldn't make one myself.
      To install, unpack the zip archive and paste the contents of "to mod folder" folder into your game's mod folder. Read the Knowledge Base for more instructions. The mod was created and tested with the full 5 install of SF2 with the latest patch.
      You can use and distribute the contents of this mod ONLY as freeware. Remember to give credits to the authors.

    10. SF2 C-54 Skymaster, Arctic Skins Pack

      SF2 C-54 Skymaster, Arctic Skins Pack       6/7/2019
      - For SF2, Full 5 Merged (Reccomended )
      This contains 2 new skins for Veltro2k's C-54 Skymaster. The aircraft itself can be found at the following url, for those that don't have it already:
      https://combatace.com/files/file/14309-sf2-douglas-c-54-skymaster-by-veltro2k/
      These are somewhat generic skins for those USAF units that flew in the high latatudes (Arctic & Antarctic) during the late 1940s through the mid-1950s. Both aircraft carry the nose and tail Military Air Transport Command (MATS) badges, correct for the time. 
      Both aircraft have the standard arctic red tail and wing easy ID markings.
      "Arctic 1" is in all Natural Metal finish. It is badged for MATS Altantic Division
      "Arctic 2" is in NMF with the post-1955 white anti-heat treatment on the upper cabin. It is badged for MATS Pacific Division. No specific units are represented.
      Both skins use a 'pool' of serial numbers and other markings. Serial numbers are generic in nature, but are for the correct model C-54.  Decal randomization is TRUE for both. The SF2 Date switch is =NOT= used on either skin, as this would mess up the standard switching from NMF to NMF/White on the other skins.
      When in game, on the Loadout Screen, in the skin selection window, you'll see:
      Arctic Red (1948-54)
      Arctic Red (1955<)
      This way, you should be able to select the proper skin for the time frame to be flown in.
      As is always reccomended, unzip to a temp folder or your desktop to give easy access to the rest of this readme for it's install instructions. 

      Happy Landings!

    11. SF2 F-86A Sabre, 115th FIS, California ANG Skin Pack

      SF2 F-86A Sabre, 115th FIS, California ANG Skin Pack       6/9/2019
      -For SF2, Any and All (Full Merged Reccomended)
      This is a NEW skin for the F-86A Sabre. It is designed to be used on the SF2 KAW Sabres Pack, for the F-86A-5 available therein. The Sabres are to be found at the following URL:
      https://combatace.com/files/file/13604-sf2-korean-war-era-f-86-sabre-pak/
      Also included is a new data ini, with updated hit and collision boxes, and some meshes now correctly named. Honestly, I'd never noticed they were 'way off' until Mue's LOD Viewer! Please note, that Crusader's fix-its have already been applied to THIS versions' data ini. A backup copy of the original (2012) data ini is supplied, so as to lessen End User (tm) workload, and provide a safety net 'just in case'.
      This skin repesents the 115th Fighter Interceptor Squadron of the California Air National Guard from 1954 through 1959-ish.  The skin is in jpg format, and 26 all NEW serial number decals have been created for it.  While the serial numbers are historically correct for the A model, they should beconsidered generic in nature as they don't actually represent aircraft from this particular unit. However, at least 9 of these ARE actual aircraft used by the 115th; the rest =were= used by other CA ANG units. Decal randomization is TRUE. Squadron color markings are 'painted on' the skin maps. 
      On the skin selection menu, on the Loadout Page, you'll see:
      115th FIS, CA ANG (54-59)
      The SF2 "date switch" =IS= active on this skin. It will automatically be chosen for years of 1954 and later.
      As is always reccomended, unzip to a temp folder or your desktop to give easy access to the rest of this readme for it's install instructions. 

      Happy Landings!

      -For SF2, Any and All (Full Merged Reccomended)
      This is a complete revamp of a 1stGen Sabre skin by Dave "USAFMTL" Slavins from June, 2003. It is designed to be used on the SF2 KAW Sabres Pack, for the F-86E-10 available therein. The Sabres are to be found at the following URL:

      This skin repesents the 144th Fighter Interceptor Squadron of the Alaska Air National Guard from 1955 through 1957-ish, when their mission changed from Air Defense to Airlift.  The skin is in jpg format, and 26 all NEW decals have been created for it.  While the serial numbers are historically correct for the E model, they should beconsidered generic in nature as they don't actually repsent aircraft from this particular unit. Decal randomization is TRUE.
      On the skin selection menu, on the Loadout Page, you'll see:
      144th FIS AK ANG (1954-58)
      The SF2 "date switch" is NOT active on this skin. You'll have to select this skin for your flightmates by hand. However it is easily added by a simple text edit.

    15. SF2 Cold War Prop and Flogger FM Tweaks

      Hello SF2 Flyers,
      For the post-WW2 prop. high-performance aircraft, several tweaks have been applied to the data inis, ranging from lift values for wings and wing tips to the engine section, prop. rpms, flight control section, gears section, flaps, also empty weight, inertia values, ceilings, engine sounds, rudder reversal effect fix, aileron/elevator/rudder sensitivity and movement, etc., depending on the type tweaked. Tweaks are not as extensive as for my FE2 work - but I've tried to get them into the "90% realistic enough" category for SF2 since these high-performance types are difficult to precision peg to within a km or two of historical stats., in contrast to the slower-moving FE2 types. Also included with this package are my minor data ini tweaks for several Flogger types, such as the MiG-23 S, early M, ML, P, MLA, late variant "98," and export variants MF and MS.
      Many thanks to the original FM modders for the late prop. types, including Baffmeister, Wrench, Cocas, MontyCZ, Charles of A-Team, Coupi, Paolopanz, and others I may not have mentioned here. The data inis are for SF2 installs only, tested at hard FM settings (no guarantees that the AI can land them nicely, although they fly them just fine). The Me109 G5 and H0 are variants on the stock G10 package provided on CombatAce (to install simply copy the relevant aircraft folders, rename as per my included folders, and drop in the relevant files). P-47 Sprint upgrades are variants on the ETO P-47D Bubbletop model and PTO P-47D Razorback model. Also included with this package are three sounds for a Pratt-Whitney, Centaurus, and Me109 either Benz or Hisso powered (sound works good for both). Links to the relevant aircraft that correspond with these data ini tweaks are located in the included "Read Me" file with the package. Please go through the Read Me for more thorough info. regarding these FM tweaks.
      Version 1.1 of this package addresses minor errors with prop efficiency data for the prop aircraft that are included.
      Happy flying,
      Von S

    16. SF2 (1937 - 1941) Prop FM Tweaks

      Hello SF2 flyers,
      For several late 1930s and early WW2 prop aircraft, tweaks have been applied to the data inis, ranging from lift values for wings and wing tips to the engine section, prop rpms, flight control section, gears section, flaps, also empty weight, inertia values, ceilings, engine sounds, rudder reversal effect fix, aileron/elevator/rudder sensitivity and movement, etc., depending on the type tweaked. Tweaks are not as extensive as for my FE2 work - but I've tried to get them into the "90% realistic enough" category for SF2 since these higher performing types are difficult to precision peg to within a km or two of historical stats., in contrast to the slower-moving FE2 types.

    17. SF2 CF-100 MK-5 [BAF]

      This package represents the CF-100 MK-5 version as used by the Belgian Air Force in Europe. It's meant for a "typical" SF-2 installation that includes the GermanyCE terrain.
      The date range is historic, from December 1957, to October 1963. Skins for the three BAF squadrons that used the type are included.
      For campaign modders, the CF-100 MK-5 [BAF] date range fits in for the 1962 Red Thunder campaign.
      The skin jpeg's are quite large but I haven't had any frame rate issues on a mediocre Dell I-3 rig. The model does use distance lods.
      To improve the high altitude performance the CF-100 MK-5 had the gun pack removed and wing tip extensions added. On the real MK-5 the gunsight was removed as well. Considering those real life limitations, and the poor hit percentage of the rockets against maneuvering fighters, the aircraft role has been limited to INTERCEPT only.
      Some adjustments have been made to the FFAR and pod so if you have the previous MK-4B [NATO] installed you should remove the previous versions and install the new ones. The sounds and ejection seat are unchanged so you can skip that part of the install.
      After the model was built we found out the MK-5 couldn't carry wing tip tanks with the wing tip extensions installed. Sundowner is too busy to do any model work so the tip tanks have been removed using an ini edit. Bomb and guided missile racks are still available for what if scenarios.
      Check the ReadMe for a bit more information.

    19. SF2 F-89 Scorpion Remod Pack (Ver.3)

      SF2 Northrup F-89 Scorpion Remod Pack (V.3)                         5/25/2019
      *For SF2, Any & All (Full 5 Merged Prefered)*
      This is a repackaging, and MAJOR update of the F-89 Scorpion series of 1950s USAF All-Weather Interceptors. There have been many changes to the various inis, skins/decals, weapons, and whatnots. This is to be considered to be "Version 3", and hopefully the final time the F-89 gets a revamp (unless new models magically appear). This package builds on and improves from the v2 pack dated 3/3/2016. It also replaces that mod completely.
      This package contains ALL the various marks of the Scorpion, including those later variants built from/modded of Monty's original C & D model LODs. There are several new skins, marked with the star (*) You have herein:
      F-89C:
      57th FIS, (Keflavik, Iceland)
      74th FIS, 23rd FIW (Thule AFB, Greenland)
      F-89D:
      75th FIS (Presque Isle AFB, Maine 1955)
      84th FIS (Hamilton AFB 1955-59)
      64th FIS (Alaska Air Command)
      321st FIS, (Paine AFB, WA 1954)*
      F-89H:
      321st FIS, (Paine AFB, WA 1956)*
      75th FIS (Presque Isle AFB, Maine 1957)
      F-89J (Early):
      321st FIS, (Paine AFB, WA 1958)*
      449th FIS (Ladd AFB, Alaska)
      F-89J (Late)
      59th FIS, Goose Bay Labrador (1958-60)*
      178th FIS "Happy Hooligans" ND ANG (1958-66)
      124th FIS, Iowa ANG (1962-69)*
      Several versions also have a "Generic USAF Silver" skin, complete with decals. You may notice several squadrons used the Scorpion in several of it's various incarnations. This is historically correct.
      Due to mesh/node mapping reasons, some marking remain painted on. A large number however, are decals. Serial numbers are 100% correct for the models depicted, but should be considered 'generic' as they don't represent actual aircraft with a given unit. Decal randomization is TRUE for all skins. Squadron's listed in the stock game's SquadronList.ini have their names activated via my 'fake' SqTail decal. Those will display their proper names on the Loadout Screen's Squadron Selection Window. When possible, the SF2 'date switch' has been used to turn on Air National Guard units as they became equipped with F-89s.
      On such aircraft that have operating canopies (those that use the F-89D lod), the canopy works via the Standard Manual Animation Keystroke (tm), shift/0.
      Included also are "Scorpion" specifc weapons (using the "StationSpecifieCode=" statements. Nuke explosion effects are included for the AIR-2 Genie rocket.
      As is always reccomended, unzip to a temp folder or your desktop to give easy access to the rest of this readme for it's install instructions. See "Notes" section for full change log and other  important statements. The various other readmes, from all previous versions remain wherever they were originally residing.

      Good Hunting!

    24. A-1H VNAF

       
      Trâu nước điên
      VNAF A-1 Skyraiders
      Also known as "The Crazy Water Buffalo"
      Hi Rez skins 
      To be used on the stock 3W SF2 A-1H Skyraiders
       
      My next set and final set for the A-1H/J Skyraiders, is the one I  just KNOW you have been waiting for in breathles anticipation !! Oh you giddy young things !! Yes these are the VNAF versions of the Skyraider. 
      The contents are as follows :-
      83 SOG 
      514 FS
      516 FS
      518 FS
      The 514 skins are just a rework of KULBIT80's skin and decal set, I have just updated the skins , the other 3 Squadrons are all new decal sets, and reworked skins, 514's skins are overall grey, 516 & 518 are pretty much standard USAF 3 tone over grey schemes with the usual over the top Vietnamese markings, SOOOOO TACTICAL !! The lack of tail markings on the 516th airframes is correct they just didnt 'ave 'em so there !! I have done the 518th skins as slightly earlier ones so I could do the snazzy white super tactical and camo friendly cowling bands, I have put anti glare panels on these skins even though in reality they didnt have them, but I thought the looked a bit odd like that so anti glare are us deal with it !! harharharhar finally the 83 SOG scheme.....I mean WOW...Really !! hyper tactical or what !! they do look we snazzy though eh chaps !! these aircraft carried no national markings except for the fin flashes, I know the reasons elude me too . 
      Anyhow as with the previous skins I have done everything is all inclusive AT NO EXTRA CHARGE mind you !! 
      All the usual shout outs to all and sundry, youre all groovy froods and you rock !!
       
      Now what are you waiting for, get into your Spad and go kick some Commie bottom !!! and of course, as always ENJOY !!!

    25. A-1J USN

      SPADS !!!
      A-1J Skyraiders of the US Navy
      Hi Rez skins 
      To be used on the stock 3W SF2 A-1J Skyraiders
       
      Continuing my series of Skyraider skins, these ones are for late mark Spads, of the US Navy.
      Included are :-
      VA-25 "Fist of the Fleet" 2 different skins from 2 consecutive cruises the first on USS Coral Sea, and the secon on USS Midway
      VA-115 "Arabs" again 2 different skins, both on the same tour of duty on USS Kittyhawk, the second set are a rework of Wrench's original experimental camo scheme, again mine is not 100% accurate, but I think it conveys the general idea. Only 2 or 3 Airframes were actually painted in this scheme, but it was just easier to do all of the squadron in it, the scheme was an experiment, which was found to be non beneficial, and in fact a bit of a problem for deck crews whilst operating at night or in bad weather, so it was dropped , however it does look pretty cool, the aircraft had only very basic markings and I have tried to replicate this with these skins, the other set of  "ARABS" are in the standard Grey/White scheme.
      VA-145 "Swordsmen" aboard USS Intrepid 
      VA-152 "Friendlies" on the USS Oriskany and they were called the Friendlies at this time NOT the Black Aces, or the Fighting Aces, the Name is correct for the Time period, the Squadron I believe are now known as the Mavericks !!
      As with all my previous uploads, everything you need is in the package ( obviously you need the aircraft in the first place hahahaha ) Again I will give the Gypsies warning about the Data.ini, make sure you DO use it , or you WILL have clipping issues !!!
      I will also say, as mentioned my my friend Mr Wrench, these are not 100% completely new , shiny, you cant bend it, built from the ground up , skins, but rather total reworks of skins that are already available ( in most cases) Hopefully I have improved on previous and older ones, and I hope you enjoy them as much as I enjoyed doing them for you all !!
       
      All the usual shout outs ( you know who you are !! ) 
       
      As always ENJOY !!!!
