      F-84F EC 1/1 "Corse", Suez Crisis 1956
       
      Because of the shortage of trained Israeli pilots, the French Air Force brought in Israeli-designated aircraft with French pilots, in great secrecy. The F-84s of EC 1/1 were attached to 200 Tayeset at Lod AB and flew offensive missions against Egypt from Israel.
       
      The F-84F for SPF1 was designed by: Sony Tuckson, Thierry-As, BPAO, Column5
      and Crab_02.

      Hi!
       
      Another skin I "made".
      Thirteen aircraft of 311 Squadron Royal Netherlands Air Force,
      all with matching serial numbers .
       
      Might be a nice addition in any European campaign.
       
      Thanks to:

    18. WOE Mirage 4000 prototype (What-If)

      This aircraft mod represents the probable workout of Dassault's Mirage 4000 and also the first member of an aircraft family as the company always created several variants of each type based on costumer requirement and evolution of technology. Other types and variants will be uploaded as separate packages.
      This package comes with 2 skin sets, the white prototype available for 4 AC, and a test squadron skin for 26 planes.
       
      This model is the SF1 version, tested in WOE.
      Using it in SFP1, WOV or WOI may reveal some hidden flaws.
      The FlightEngine.ini file provided comes from WOE. Read the "Readme" file for info.
       
      Install is the regular dropping the contents in their respective places.
      Please note: The model can be quite heavy on FPS in large formations on weaker machines, so if required, either resize skin files or use lower lods(_nd,001,002,003) as lod1.
       
      The model uses the general french weapons, either as part of weapon packs or the Mirage 2000 family.
       
      Make sure to read the manual included with the package.

    20. F-4S_Beta.7z

      Here is an F-4S Phantom II with only 2 skins. I have in my personal stash version more skins, but I need to finish tweaking.
      The completed version will have more skins and I'll include weps and sound files, pilots etc.  If no pilot shows up when u try this one you'll have to edit the 'data' file and change the pilot with one you have.
      I just realized I neglected to change the sound settings in the data file...so i enclosed my j79.wav files.
       
      Be careful not to overwrite what you don't want to loose, so I'd unzip it to somwplace like C:\Temp...the copying to the right folders.

    21. DEUCES Euro Desert Terrain

      Am not sure who created this mod of the desert terrain using Euro Airwar textures other than 'Dueces' but here it is.
      I call it in a couple missions uploaded in my F-4S_F-4N pack to be uploaded today barring tech difficulties.
       
      I modded the 'nations' file, BTW.

    22. Kosovo_beta

      I saw in the forum someone asked about a Kosovo terrain and someone else thought there was one around (albiet this was posted some time back.) Anyway, here is that Kosovo terrain. Unfortunately, somehow ( i ) apparently overwrote the planning maps with the 'desert' planning maps at some point so i put in blank bitmaps to substitute. If you take one of your msn files and substitute 'kosovo' for lets say 'desert' it should work. If you use the kmd mission editor you can see where the targets are located and move your planes where you want of course.
      Perhaps, I will get some sort of map plotted at some point, but the only way i know how to do that is to trial and error with the kmd mission editor and starting the game up to see where i end up. Someone with more experience with some other util could prob whip something up.
      If, you like the F-4S in the image I will try to get the skins finished and up load it soon.
      I uploaded a couple mission files, but you'll still have to edit them unless you have the same planes and ground objects. My CV-41 USS Midway is in da ocean in at least one of these missions. (They're just samples...some planes some 'groundObjects' no planning just samples)
      I do not know who created this Kosovo terrain to give credit to or if they mind me loading it here. Have no clue where and when i got it. Must have been years ago. Its pretty simple terrain. Very frame rate friendly, tons of mountains and hills, plus the ocean (the adriatic i suppose its called.) Not up; to modern standards. You might like the 'Black Sea' terrain better if you want detail and fly in that neighborhood.

    23. [Fictional] McDonnell Douglas A-4E Skyhawk 'Greece'

      McDonnell Douglas A-4E Skyhawk, Hellenic Air Force for STRIKE FIGHTERS 1
      This is a simple mod of the Third Wire A-4E Skyhawk to create a fictional A-4E in service with the Hellenic Air Force during the 1967 to 1991 timeline. It should work with any Series One game with the A-4E LOD's and 'What If' markings are included for 330 Mira in an 'as delivered' USN scheme and also 339 Mira and 340 Mira in wrap-around camo schemes made by me using the template uploaded by BUFF.

      INSTRUCTIONS
      1. From the AIRCRAFT folder drag and drop the A-4E_HAF folder into your Aircraft folder.
      That's it!

      CREDITS
      Thanks to TK for a great little game/sim.
      Thanks to BUFF for uploading the A-4E template from which I've used the lines and rivets layer.
      And thanks to everyone in the wider Third Wire community.

    24. SF1: Nanchang Q-5A 'Fantan' Mongolian AF (What If)

      Nanchang Q-5A 'Fantan' for Strike Fighters 1
      This is a simple mod of the excellent Nanchang Q-5/A-5 Fantan brought to us by 101tfs, Erwin_Hans and friends back in 2008 to make a fictional export version for the Mongolian Air Force. This mod uses the famous 'ordway' MiG-19S pit and the original cockpit 'read me' is included in the aircraft folder - it's certainly worth a read.

      INSTRUCTIONS
      1. From the Aircraft folder drag and drop the Q-5A into your Aircraft folder.
      That's it! I like to keep things simple so I use stock weapons and effects.

      CREDITS
      Thanks to TK for a great little game/sim.
      Big thanks to Erwin_Hans, 101tfs and friends.
      Big thanks also to Richard Pitts2A Ordway for the Mig-19 cockpit.
      And special thanks to everyone in the wider Third Wire community.

    25. Avro Canada CF-103 Archer

      Avro Canada CF-103 Arrow for Strike Fighters 1
      This is a simple mod of the excellent Shenyang F-8IIM 'FinBack-B' brought to us by Erwin_Hans back in 2008 to make a fictional Canadian cold-war interceptor with markings for the following RCAF squadrons;
      No.409 Squadron (Blue & Yellow Rudder Stripes)
      No.410 Squadron (Red & White Rudder Stripes)
      No.414 Squadron (Black & Red Rudder Stripes)
      No.416 Squadron (Black & Yellow Rudder Stripes)
      No.425 Squadron (Black & Silver Rudder Stripes)
       
      N.B. 1960's RCAF markings are a bit of a challenge as they changed so often so I've just gone for a mid-1960's snapshot!

      BACKSTORY
      Serving with no less that nine front-line RCAF squadrons at its peak in the mid-1950's, the Avro Canada CF-100 Canuck provided all-weather defense against Soviet intruders and the four Canuck squadrons based in Europe from 1956 to1962 were, for some time, the only NATO fighters capable of operating in zero visibility and poor weather conditions. However, recognising the fact that the Soviet Union was working on newer jet-powered bombers the RCAF began looking for a missile-armed replacement for the CF-100 even before it had entered service and in January 1953 the RCAF's All-Weather Interceptor Requirements Team submitted a report to the Canadian Government outlining their requirements.
      In response, Avro Canada came up with three distinct proposals;
      1. A subsonic CF-100 development with a thinner swept wing and tail surfaces and with external missile stores (CF-100S).
      2. A single-seat supersonic delta-winged aircraft with twin engines and external missile stores (CF-103).
      3. A large two-seat supersonic delta-winged aircraft with twin engines and an internal missile bay (CF-105).
       
      After a full year of reviewing Avro Canada's proposals the RCAF announced in February 1954 that they considered that the CF-103 represented the optimum balance between cost, efficacy and in-service date and requested that Avro Canada should be awarded a production contract for 200 CF-103's. To keep costs down the RCAF stipulated the use of two key 'off the shelf' items; the Hughes MA-1 fire control system (from the Convair F-102A) and the Rolls-Royce Avon afterburning turbojet (from the English Electric Lightning). Whilst both items were actually still under development themselves, they were considered to be a safer choice than any home-grown paper project and likely to reach maturity for the projected in-service date of 1960. The only area of risk was the decision to arm the CF-103 with the radical British ADEN 230 twin-barreled cannon in a streamlined semi-conformal installation carrying the cannon and with a 500 round ammunition drum stored immediately above and inside the fuselage.
      The CF-103 used the then fashionable delta-wing configuration but with slab tailplanes and, in order to house a large radar set, the CF-103  used a solid nose with variable geometry air intakes on the fuselage with intake ramps and splitter plates which proved to be a perfect match for the Avon RB.146 turbojet engines each rated at 12,500 lbs thrust dry and 16,500 lbs thrust with afterburner. The aircraft was intended to be built directly from the production line thus skipping the traditional hand-built prototype phase and luckily very little re-design was required as testing progressed. On October 4th 1957, the same day as the launch of Sputnik 1, the first CF-103A was rolled out at Avro Canada's facility at Malton, Ontario eventually making it's first flight on December 30th, 1957 with Chief Development Test Pilot Janusz Zurakowski at the controls. Flight testing quickly demonstrated excellent handling and overall performance, reaching Mach 2.1 in level flight. Development was slowed slightly due to problems with the Hughes MA-1 Fire Control System and the ADEN 230 twin-barreled cannon but the first two CF-103A's entered service with No.425 Squadron on August 15th, 1961 in a ceremony at RCAF Namao, Alberta becoming fully operational by the end of the year.

      INSTRUCTIONS
      1. From the Aircraft folder drag and drop the CF-103A and CF-103B folders into your Aircraft folder.
      That's it! But why are there two aircraft?
      Firstly, I wanted to show this aircraft with AIM-4D Falcons so chose the CF-103A for that but to get Falcons to appear in 1963 I've had to use 'USAF' as the nation name in both the data.ini and textureset.ini which allows a 1963 in service date instead of the 1966 (the allowable export year of the AIM-4D).
      Secondly, I like the look of the black intakes used on the CF-103B which are an affectionate nod towards the mighty CF-105 Arrow. So all five CF-103B skins have black intakes whilst the CF-103A has grey intakes and the continuous 'cheat line' but you can swap things around to suit your own preferences.

      CREDITS
      Thanks to TK for a great little game/sim.
      Enormous thanks to Erwin_Hans, olo007 and 101tfs and the Inksy Group for bringing us the Shenyang F-8IIM.
