    1. EF-101D Jammin VooDoo. What If...


      I have absolutely no idea what I am doing here...
      The true story behind Jammin VooDoo
      When USAF realized that maintaining expensive RF-101B become problematic for the budget they started to look for potential clients among allied forces. Imperial Iranian Air Force saw an opportunity in this. After closing the deal IIAF immediately asked the Israeli industry to prepare a possible package for 22 airframes. The deal covered the full conversion of existing airframes into electronic countermeasure fighters. RF-101B received ground mapping radar and sophisticated electronics. It was successfully used by IIAF in escort and SEAD missions until 1979. Soon before the revolution, Israel was afraid that Jammin Voodoo electronics will get into the wrong hands. Thanks to diplomatic efforts Heyl Ha'Avir acquired all 22 airframes. Jammin VooDoo stayed in Israel until 1983 where it served in 253 Tayeset as an experimental ECM detachment. In 1983 due to huge expenses with old airframes, EF-101 was sold back to the USA. All aircraft were sent to two National Guard squadrons where they served for 4 more years in "wild Weasel" detachments.
      In 2380 due to a temporal anomaly, USS Titan was sent into 1988. On secret assignment, all 22 aircraft were beamed into the cargo bay where airframes were scrapped and electronics were used to create a time beacon. 
       
       
      Basic modding skills are required t run this mod.

    2. Panavia Tornado F.3 RAF for ODS edition upgrade 1.0.0

      Tornado F.3 RAF Super Skinpack
      The Panavia Tornado Air Defence Variant (ADV) was a long-range,
      twin-engine interceptor version of the swing-wing Panavia Tornado.
      The aircraft's first flight was on 27 October 1979, and it entered
      service with the Royal Air Force (RAF) in 1986.
      The Tornado ADV was originally designed to intercept Soviet bombers
      as they were traversing across the North Sea with the aim of
      preventing a successful air-launched nuclear attack against the United
      Kingdom. In this capacity, it was equipped with a powerful radar and
      beyond-visual-range missiles.
      The type has been replaced by the Eurofighter Typhoon.
      WHAT'S IN:
      - 27 new High Rez skins
      - serial numbers by squadron
      - data.ini taxing fix (same as AMI pack)

      CREDITS:
      - Bobrock: plane & templates
      - Menvra: ODS Edition upgrade

      Note
      Beware, the mod is available only in the ISO format. You can either mount it on a virtual drive, burn it on a DVD like in the good old days, or unzip it with 7-Zip or equivalent software.
      The installer should automatically detect your Strike Fighters 2 installation folder. Make sure that the installation path points to your Strike Fighters 2 game folder, not to a custom mod folder. The installer does not allow you to choose a custom mod folder path at this time. The mod folder will be installed automatically in the proper "X:\Users\YourName\Saved Games\ThirdWire\" path, like any other mod folder created by TW's stock Strike Fighters 2 games. After installation is over, simply run the mod by using the created Desktop and/or Start Menu links.
      If you have the previous 0.9.0 or 0.9.5 version installed, please use the uninstaller to remove it completely. Clean installation is mandatory for version 0.9.6. You might want to make a backup of the Controls folder, so that you can easily restore your controller settings afterwards.
       
      Suggestions for CTD issues
      Make sure that you are using your dedicated GPU. Strike Fighters 2 usually selects Intel's integrated GPU by default, but that one is not supported by this mod. Don't waste your time installing the mod on office laptops, it won't work. Got to Sound and set Sound Channels to 32. We got reports that 16 is not enough and will cause CTDs on some systems, due to the higher quality sounds included within the mod. Set Ground Objects to Medium or Low, Horizon Distance to Near, and Shadows to Medium or Low. These are the most troubling settings. Due to high number of aircraft and objects in the campaign, most featuring high number of polygons and 2k resolution textures, your video card can easily go out of memory in heavy load missions. Unlimited should only be selected for Texture and Effects settings, but only if you have a high-end GPU. The mod currently includes Mue's terrain shaders which increase distance of TOD trees and buildings. These shaders may require more processing power. We might remove them in future releases, if it may help with performance. Pray for TW/TK to work on a 64bit version of Strike Fighters 2, maybe even with support for DirectX 12. With that done, CTD issues would be an old memory.

    4. Panavia Tornado F.3 A.M.I. for ODS edition upgrade

      In the early 1990s, the Italian Air Force (Aeronautica Militare Italiana, or AMI) identified a requirement for
      a fighter to boost its air defence capabilities pending introduction of the Eurofighter Typhoon, expected around
      2000. These fighters were to operate alongside the service's obsolescent F-104ASA Starfighters.
      The Tornado ADV was selected from, amongst others, the F-16. On 17 November 1993, Italy signed an agreement with
      the RAF to lease 24 Tornado F3s from the RAF for a period of ten years.
      First training of AMI pilots began in March 1995 at RAF Coningsby while technicians gained experience at RAF
      Cottesmore and Coningsby. The first aircraft was accepted on 5 July 1995 and flown to its Italian base the same day.
      Delivery of the first batch was completed by 1996; these aircraft were deployed at Gioia del Colle in Southern Italy.
      The second batch was delivered between February and July 1997, these aircraft were of a slightly higher specification.
      They served with 12° Gruppo 36° Stormo at Gioia del Colle AB from 1995 to 2004 and with 21° Gruppo 53° Stormo at
      Cameri AB from 1997 to 2001. In 1999 it joined 36° Stormo at Gioia del Colle AB and in 2001 was disbanded.
      The AMI returned its Tornados to the RAF, with the final aircraft arriving at RAF Saint Athan on 7 December 2004.
      WHAT'S IN:
      - 3 new High Rez skins covering all A.M.I. service
      - All historical group numbers and planes matricole
      - edited data.ini with taxi dancing fixed with Italy export time
      - edited userlist.ini with Italy

      Mirage F1CE (1985-1998)
      This mod is dedicated to BPAO, nothing would have been possible without him.
      In June 1975, with tension growing with Morocco, Spain decided to strengthen its Air Force and bought 15 Mirage F1C that were allocated to Albacete AB. In mid-1976 there was still some tension with Morocco and Algerian and Libyan MiG-25 flights on the Mediterranean, which would lead the Spanish Air Force to purchase ten more Mirage F1C and two years later order 48 Mirage F1C and F1E.
      F1CE_Late specifics:
      - no 550, AIM-9 SW instead
      - extra AIM-9 on P2 stations
      - R530, no S530F, CLB4
      - no radio-altimeter
      - Seat Mk6
      - AN/ALE-40 Chaffs Flares dispenser
      Covered units :
      Ala 14, 141° Escuadron.
      A big thank to all on Combatace and C6 forums that helped us solving issues we encountered.
      Any omission in credits is totally unwanted, if I forgot somebody, let me know, I will correct this.
      This addon is and will in all cases remain freeware.
      Released under CombatAce Fair-Use terms.

    8. Speech Enhancement & Expansion

      Speech Enhancement & Expansion
      February 13th, 2019 (1st Release)
      by Menrva

      >For Strike Fighters 2 games
      This package is my personal enhancement meant to improve the consistency and quality of the in-game English speech. I tweaked the SpeechSystem.ini file to include the additional SF2NA voices ("call the ball" and "Vampire") separately from those of the TACC; the additional SF2NA voices are now meant to be those of a Navy Controller. By chance, I have found and fixed a stock bug in the original SF2 SpeechSystem.ini file.
      With some .wav editing, I created a generic Hawkeye TACC using the original, female Red Crown voice. Additional .wav files have been created so that in-game flights and Departure mention Hawkeye instead of Red Crown.
      I hex-edited the .str file so that subtitles properly display Hawkeye instead of Red Crown. Other little fixes were also made; for instance, you'll no longer see "Call the ball" (capital letter after a comma), now it correctly is "call the ball". You get Hawkeye as TACC when flying for naval aviation services, otherwise you get Red Crown.
      This enhancement is a mixture of Polak's beautiful speech pack for SF1 games, and of SkateZilla's and Rends' improved Hawkeye voices; my thanks for their work!
      As a bonus, correct and complete or mostly complete speech files have been added for other languages: Italian, Spanish, Vietnamese, Arabic, Persian. These languages have been added to the proper aviation services of countries where these languages are official:
      -Arabic is used for Egypt, Syria, Iraq, Jordan, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Lebanon, Somalia, Chad, Yemen, Oman, Algeria, Morocco, Sudan, Tunisia, Bahrain, Qatar, United Arab Emirates, Libya, Djibouti.
      -Spanish is used for Spain, Argentina, Cuba, Colombia, Ecuador, Peru, Venezuela, Bolivia, Chile, Paraguay, Uruguay, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Mexico, Nicaragua, Dominican Republic.
      -Persian is used for Iran, Afghanistan, Tajikistan.
      -Vietnamese is used for North Vietnam only.
      -Italian is used for Italy only.
      It's highly suggested to install this mod on top of my Nations & Medals Expansion package; the included NATIONS.ini file is entirely based on the one from that mod (hence that mod is required), but with additional edits for enabling different speech packs and callsigns where proper.
      Mentioned countries feature correct callsigns as heard by the respective audio files (except for Persian, not possible for me to rework them without a transcription). Only Arabic features correct in-game subtitles (I cannot fully hex-edit them for other languages due to file size limits; please someone create a .STR editor tool).

      >Credits (in no particular order):
      -Polak, for his SF1 mod which enhances all of the original SFP1 speech sound files.
      -Rends and SkateZilla, for the improved SF2NA Hawkeye voices, which I have tweaked a bit.
      -GKABS, for producing the (still in progress) Arabic speech pack started for the development of ODS 30AE.
      -Nguyen Dang Hat and Rhugouvi, for creating the amazing Vietnamese speech pack.
      -FX Interactive, for producing the Italian and Spanish speech packs for their release of Strike Fighters: Project 1.
      I included the original readme files from the mentioned mods, to the end of giving proper credit to everyone involved directly or not.

      >Disclaimer:
      This is a freeware; yet it can be redistributed ONLY in other CombatACE mods/mod packages.
      This mod may NOT in any way, shape or form be used in any payware additions.

    9. F-22A Raptor Skin Pack

      F-22A Raptor Skin Pack
      October 13th, 2021 (1st Release)
      by Menrva

      >For Strike Fighters 2 games
      This is an extra skin pack for the high quality F-22A Raptor aircraft add-on. Most skins are based on ideas and depictions from other videogames. Here below a list of the included ones:
      -YF-22 Paint Scheme (inspired by the real YF-22 prototype)
      -Sea Raptor Livery (inspired by the F-22N Sea Raptor concept)
      -Saudi Grey Camouflage (as depicted in Digital Image Design's F-22 Total Air War)
      -Egyptian Woodland Camouflage (as depicted in Digital Image Design's F-22 Total Air War)
      -USAF Pac West Camouflage (as depicted in Digital Image Design's F-22 Total Air War)
      -Desert Lightning Camouflage (as depicted in NovaLogic's F-22 Lightning 3)
      -Phoenix Livery (from Namco Hometek's Air Combat, as depicted in Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown)
      -Phoenix Livery, Dark (as depicted in Project Aces' Ace Combat Infinity)
      -Scarface One Livery (as depicted in Namco Hometek's Ace Combat 2)
      -Z.O.E., Red Livery (from Namco Hometek's Ace Combat 2, as depicted in Project Aces' Ace Combat Infinity)
      -Mobius One, ISAF Livery (as depicted in Project Aces' Ace Combat 04: Shattered Skies)
      -Abell, Black Livery (as depicted in Project Aces' Ace Combat 04: Shattered Skies)
      -Razgriz Livery (from Project Aces' Ace Combat 5: The Unsung War, as depicted in Project Aces' Ace Combat 6: Fires of Liberation)
      -Pegas, 3-Tone Blue Camouflage (as depicted in Project Aces' Ace Combat 6: Fires of Liberation)
      -Indigo Wing Livery (as depicted in Project Aces' Ace Combat 6: Fires of Liberation)
      -Gryphus One Livery (from Access Games' Ace Combat X: Skies of Deception, as depicted in Project Aces' Ace Combat Infinity)
      -Warwolf Livery (as depicted in Project Aces' Ace Combat: Assault Horizon)
      -Mobius One, IUN Livery (as depicted in Project Aces' Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown)
      -Trigger Livery (as depicted in Project Aces' Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown)
      -JASDF 2-Tone Blue Camouflage (as depicted in Project Aces' Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown)
      As a bonus, different aircraft configuration files are included in the "(Alternative Data)" folder. You'll be able to choose between realistic loadouts (default configuration of the aircraft add-on package) and what-if loadouts inspired by the mentioned F-22 videogames of the late 90s, namely weapons included in F-22 Lightning 3. Both configurations are also available with the addition of invisible skids; those will allow you to perform belly landings, which are a feature of good old F-22 Total Air War.
      Notes:
      -The B61 tactical nuclear bomb is a retarded version, but drop it safely from high altitude at high speed. Take note that it does not damage the stock Runway object, due to the armor values of it. The B61 is meant to be used against naval fleets you may encounter on some custom terrains.
      -You need to tweak the SoundList.ini file in order to fully experience any new sounds. Read "(Add to SoundList)" for further details, and remember to extract the SoundList.ini file from the FlightData.cat archive, if you do not have a custom one in your mod folder already.

      >Credits (in no particular order):
      -yakarov79, for his high quality templates which allowed me to easily put some new paint on the aircraft.
      -ravenclaw_007, for sharing some of his latest weapon 3d models for the bonus what-if loadouts.
      -Astore, for providing me with better Ace Combat themed emblems, and for being one of the few Italian Ace Combat fans like me.
      -godrugalultimate, from DeviantArt, for making incredibly detailed Ace Combat themed decals.
      -RythusOmega, for providing all Ace Combat 7 emblems and whose skins have been used as reference for the Phoenix liveries.
      -Lanzerince, whose Ace Combat 7 skins have been used as reference for the Scarface livery.
      -mue, for his LOD Viewer which helped immensely in the making of the skins.
      -Blade, for sharing info about the purpose of the game's decal levels.
      -My girlfriend, for supporting me in all of my life's endeavours.

    10. F-22A Raptor Add-on

      F-22A Raptor Add-on
      October 13th, 2021 (1st Release)
      by yakarov79, baffmeister, Crusader, guuruu and Menrva

      >For Strike Fighters 2 games
      This is a high quality add-on of the F-22A Raptor aircraft. The original model had been made by Heberth, and it was released in alpha stage.
      Upon noticing room for improvement, yakarov79 helped finalize the 3d model with numerous, additional details; accurate pylons and rail launchers, new external fuel tanks, highly detailed rack and small diameter bomb 3d models, canopy and thrust-vectoring animations, high-res skin with specular and bump maps, updated cockpit model, and so on.
      A realistic, well-thought flight model has been produced by our expert, baffmeister. Moreover, Crusader offered his great expertise to improve upon his previous modification for the Raptor's avionics. All their efforts have raised the quality bar of the project I had started; much credits to them all.
      I further polished the package by adding historically accurate weapon loadouts, my selection of sounds (including authentic engine samples by guuruu), realistic camouflage shapes and colours, reworked decals for the actual USAF's F-22A squadrons, new cockpit textures and other tweaks here and there. Each squadron has got historically correct serial numbers, and they appear in chronological order in the loadout screen; the serial numbers at the bottom of the list are those of aircraft that joined that squadron for last, while the serials at the beginning of the list indicate those aircraft that were available to that squadron for first.
      Like you would expect in an opera omnia, I even reproduced three unique paint schemes of real Raptors; the air superiority camouflage of the EMD 91-4001 Prototype of September 1997, the temporary "Blue Nose" decoration of the "Cripes A'Mighty" Raptor assigned to the 149th Fighter Squadron in April 2010, and a generic Mid-Production livery sporting the markings of the last Raptor ever produced that flew for the first time in March 2012.
      Templates by yakarov79, tweaked by yours truly, are included for your skinning fantasies.
      Notes:
      -The cockpit is not yet accurate, as various details couldn't be reworked due to RL and time constraints. We were working on a brand new cockpit with accurate HUD and displays. Slimers with correct illumination were also planned. Hopefully they will be a thing in a future re-release.
      -The aircraft folder is named "F-22A", just like the one included in a number of mod packages which use an old 3d model by Dels. In order to avoid mismatches and bugs of any sort, it's highly suggested to either remove or rename the aircraft folder using Dels' Raptor 3d model.
      -GPS guidance does not work as intended in SF2, as it brings a lot of issues about the avionics, the use of racks and the AI behaviour. This is why the JDAMs have been set as laser guided bombs. Despite this, they seem to work much like GPS guided bombs; without a targeting pod (which the Raptor does lack), you are still able to lock on the primary target of the strike mission, and the bombs can be used only on that target, as it should be.
      -The AI aircraft usually have issues with guided bombs in SF2, they may not drop them. Strike missions should be accomplished by the players themselves.
      -You need to tweak the SoundList.ini file in order to fully experience any new sounds. Read "(Add to SoundList)" for further details, and remember to extract the SoundList.ini file from the FlightData.cat archive, if you do not have a custom one in your mod folder already.

    12. Dassault/FMA Rafale EA-2/DA

      BACKSTORY: 
      In 2014, with the Mirage retirement in mind, Argentina started a competition to decide wich plane was going to replace it in the near future. Due to the strategic position of the country and the abundance of resources, the contest ended up having various options: the F/A-18E/F, the Tejas MK1 and MK2, the Gripen, the Su-30, the MiG-35, the J-10CE and the Rafale, all with unique variants to fill the needs of the Argentinian Air Force.
      The chosen plane was the Rafale. The Argentinian Ministry of Defence agreed on 18 planes, 12 Rafale EA-2s and 4 Rafale DAs. The Rafale EA-2 is an advanced variant of the Rafale F4, equipped with AESA radar and Conformal Fuel Tanks. It can fire the MBDA MICA missiles, along with some russian ordenance. This is because Dassault, Argentina and Russia agreed to replace the british parts with russian parts in the exchange of Argentina buying and equipping the Rafale with russian precise guided munitions.
      The Argentinian Rafale participated in various exercises with NATO and eastern side countries, like the "ECOAS I", where the Argentinian pilots showed its great ability to fly low, "sinking" the USS George Bush.
      Special thanks to JAT81500, for releasing the Dassault Rafale F4,  wich is used as the Dassault Rafale EA-2
      And ThirdWire, for this amazing sim, that I love and play almost everyday...

      I hope you enjoy this mod as much as I do.
      Have a good flight!
      Good hunting!

    14. F-15C MSIP Cockpit Repaint

      This is a quick repaint of the existing F-15C cockpit released on F-15 Superpack Redux 2016. I believe it has already been repainted by Viper63 back a while, however a few artifacts lead to my decision to redo the color and give it a TW color tone.
       
      Installation
      ________________________________
      Extract the  entire folder to <your SF2 mod folder>/Objects/Aircraft /F-15C    . When prompt to overwrite existing files, choose "Yes"

    18. Mig-31BM Mini Update Pack

      Out of 3 Mig 31 models available in CA (not sure why Mig-31A got removed...) Mig 31BM has the oldest model dated back to 2008, which has problem casting shadows and is over-polygoned.
       
      This package contains models changed late 2010 with multiple level of details and correct shadow casting. So that you can finally ditch the SHD file.
       
      Original creator : jv44
      Skin: jv44
       
       
      Please note the new model is not compatible with any previous skin. This update is released as-is.
       
      You will need to download & install Mig31m/bm pack from Brain32, then update with this mini pack. Find Brain32's file here

    19. Better CCIP mod v1.1

      Better CCIP mod for SF1/2 series.
       
      This mod will prevent the CCIP and Gunsight dot from showing through any solid part of your cockpit. Leading to a much authentic bombing procedure.
       
      In SF1, this is done without any harm.
      In SF2, I have to remove 2 effect shaders which are used when your effect setting is at "Unlimited". So you lose some not-so-obvious effect.
       
      Installation
      ------------
      For SF1, just extract the file to the 'objects' folder
      For SF2, first extract the file in the 'objects' folder in your mod folder, then follow the procedure mentioned in the "Special note for SF2 users" to complete it.

    20. Socotra terrain

      Socotra 1.0
      *****************************************************
      This terrain is written for SF2NA and SF2 Israel.
      +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
      I. Short description:
      Socotra is a relativly big island on the shores of the Horn of Africa. It belongs to Yemen.
      Socotra is an ideal position to control all shipping lines between the Mediterranian Sea and the Indian Ocean.
      The power who controls Socotra can easily block the oil support from the Gulf to Western Europe.
      Socotra is the cork in the bottle neck, like Djibouti, the Suez Canal or Gibraltar.
      From mid 1960th to the fall of the Soviet Union, the soviets had an airbase on Socotra. In the 1980th on the base one regiment (squadron) of Su-24 bombers was active on Socotra.
      This terrain is made for a scenario that the Americans must defeat the soviet forces on Socotra island. They had to operate from carrier positions in the Gulf of Aden. For all guys who love to fly Air Force planes i made a temporary american airfield in Somalia.
      In the timeframe, where the soviets have no own carriers the single missions are focused on Socotra island. When the soviets field carriers the terrain is mostly focused on carrier vs carrier battles. So, if you prefer carrier vs ground battles you must choose missions before 1976. After that date you will have to fight Kiev carrier battle groups.
       
      ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
      II. INSTALLATION:
      To run this terrain you need SF2NorthAtlantic and SF2 Israel or SF2 Europe.

      Unzip all files into your saved game folder ...ThirdWire\StrikeFighters2XXXX

      Thats it.

      If you have SF2Israel installed you must do nothing more.
      If you miss SF2I and have SF2Europe you must open file
      Sokotra.ini
      with Notepad editor and look for the lines:
      CatFile=..\IsraelME\IsraelME.cat
      //CatFile=..\GermanyCE\GermanyCE.cat
      change the entry into:
      //CatFile=..\IsraelME\IsraelME.cat
      CatFile=..\GermanyCE\GermanyCE.cat
      save the file

    21. Improved Ground Gun Accuracy

      The purpose of this mod is to improve the ground gun accuracy especially the AA Guns. It changes the game's default ballistic coefficient entries and make better speed retention for trajectory items. Thus it makes guns perform much better for anything flying straight line.
      I have included 2 types of data in this mod. Please choose the one that works better for you.
      Type A = Ballistic Coefficient changed to 1.1 times, better gun accuracy.
      Type B = Ballistic Coefficient changed to 1.2 times, even higher gun accuracy but may influence AI plane in missions.
       
      Also included the ballisticdata change program which when open in a folder that contains G1.dat, will allow you to change the entries. 
       
      For artillery, in addition to this mod, you can also change the accuracy in the gun data to 125 (yes, you can actually exceed 100)
       
       
      Installation:
      -----------------------------------------
      Extract the G1.dat file under Type A or Type B folder under Objects folder in your mod directory
       
      Uninstallation
      ----------------------------------------
      Delete G1.dat file under Objects folder in your mod directory

    22. [Fictional] Mikoyan-Gurevich Ye-2PFM "Faceplate-D"

      Mikoyan-Gurevich Ye-2PFM "Faceplate-D" for STRIKE FIGHTERS 2 
      Released 'as is', this is Mikoyan-Gurevich Ye-2PFM 'Faceplate' - featuring a 3D model by KnightWolf45 (the artist formerly known as Cocas). 
      In the mid-1950's the MiG OKB was tasked in developing a new lightweight supersonic interceptor fighter for the Soviet Air Force and flight-tested two distinct designs in parallel - one with a thin, swept-wing and one with a tailed delta wing. The tailed delta would eventually win out to become the famous MiG-21 'Fishbed' but it's tantalising to consider 'what if' the swept-wing Ye-2A prototype had either won or was considered good enough to also be procured. Anyway, this is the swept-wing Ye-2 as it might have looked in service with the Soviet Air Force and I've also included Egyptian, Mongolian and Parani skins. 
      Giving the aircraft a service designation is tricky as it was given a provisional designation of MiG-23 but, of course, this conflicts with the swing-wing 'Flogger' that came later. We can't use an even number like MiG-20 or MiG-22 so I've just called it the Ye-2PFM and you can change this to suit your own thoughts on this matter.

      INSTRUCTIONS
      1. From the AIRCRAFT folder drag and drop the Ye-2PFM folder into your Aircraft folder.
      2. From the DECALS folder drag and drop the Ye-2PFM folder into your Decals folder.
      3. From the WEAPONS folder drag and drop the Faceplate-GP-9 folder into your Weapons folder.
      That's it!

      CREDITS
      As always, thanks to Third Wire for a great little game/sim.
      Huge thanks to KnightWolf45 for creating the Ye-2PFM 3D model a few years ago and to the CAF team for any inputs that followed.
      Special thanks also to Coupi for sending me his templates that I've used to create the skins.
      Thanks to Paladrian for the MiG-21 pit.
      And, finally, thanks to everyone in the wider Third Wire community.
      Regards 
      Spinners

    23. Insignias and tactical numbers for stock tanks

      Tactical numbers and insignias for stock tanks
      *****************************************************
      This mod is made for SF2.
      ----------------------------------------------------------
      I.
      In the history it was common that tanks got tactical numbers and showed insignias for better friend and foe identification.
      This package included modded stock tank files, so that the tanks will show numbers and insignias in single missions and campaigns.
      It contains insignias and tactical numbers for:
      Leopard A1 to A5
      Centurion Shot and Shot Kal
      M48 Magach 3
      M60 Magach 6
      M48A2
      M48A3
      M60A1
      T-34-85
      T-54
      T-55
      T-62A
      T-72A
      For M48, M60, T-54 and T-55 i added workable anti-aircraft-machine guns. I also changed the armour of some tanks values to make them closer to real world
       
      -----------------------------------------------------------------------
      II.
      INSTALLATION:
      -Unzip the object folder into your SF2 mod folder
