    1. Avro Shackleton MR2

      The Avro Shackleton is a British long-range maritime patrol aircraft (MPA) which was used by the Royal Air Force (RAF) and the South African Air Force (SAAF). It was developed by Avro from the Avro Lincoln bomber, which itself had been a development of the famous wartime Avro Lancaster bomber.

    2. Avro Shackleton MK.2 AEW

      During its later life, a small number of the RAF's existing Shackletons received extensive modifications in order to adapt them to perform the airborne early warning (AEW) role. The type continued to be used in this support capacity until 1991, when it was replaced by the Boeing E-3 Sentry AEW aircraft. These were the last examples of the type remaining in active service.

    3. Hellenic Air Force F-5A Volume I

      July 2020
      ===============
      Hellenic Air Force F-5A Freedom Fighter Volume I VERSION 1.0
      ------------------------------------------------------------
      F-5A variants included in the Package:
      HAF F-5A standard version (1965 - 1974)
      HAF F-5A with Martin Baker IRQ-7a ejection seat  (1975 - 1999)
      HAF Rf-5A reconnaissance variant with 4 K-92a cameras
      We are proud to present the F-5A HAF Volume I, the first of many to come, focusing on one of the most enduring American military aircraft designs ever produced during the Cold War period. This first Volume depicts the following Hellenic Air Force variants; the HAF F-5A standard, the HAF F-5A with the Martin Baker IRQ-7a ejection seat, and the HAF RF-5A reconnaissance variant. It has been our goal to provide to the simmer a highly detailed model and texture base which preserve the beautiful lines of this aircraft; and to engineer flight files and a cockpit/gauge file-set that are authentic and add to the immersion of the flying experience within the Strike Fighters 2 series.

       
      INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS:
      --------------------------
      1. Copy the contents of the "To Mods Folder(S)" to your SF2 Mod directory.
      Allow directory merging and overwrites, provided the overwrites pertain to "fake pilot" entries, as well as weapons made by ravenclaw_007, which are included in this and many other releases.
      2. Add the entries of "ADD_TO_SOUNDLIST.txt" to your SOUNDLIST.INI (located in the "user\Saved Games\ThirdWire\StrikeFighters2\Flight" folder).If one does not exist, then you will need to extract it using the 3rdWire CAT extract utility.  You are simply required to substitute the "XXX"s  with the next sequential number in the sound file section of the file.
       
        NOTE    1:
      ------------
      Both Regular and Higher resolution cockpit textures are included in their own distinct folders in the package.
      The user may alternate between the two by "commenting out"
      the relevant line in the F-5A_STANDARD_COCKPIT.ini

      [CockpitData]
      //Directory=cockpit      
      Directory=cockpit_Lo-Fi    <---This is the default

      In order to "activate" the higher resolution textures
      you would decomment the previous line and comment out
      the next line, thus:

      [CockpitData]
      Directory=cockpit          <---This is now Hi-Res
      //Directory=cockpit_Lo-Fi    

        NOTE    2:
      ------------
      Another frame-rate friendly option for those with older hardware is to use the Next level of Detail Model as the primary external model. This simply involves changing the first line in the F-5A_HAF.ini  from this..
      [LOD001]
      Filename=F-5A_STANDARD.LOD
      to this..
      [LOD001]
      Filename=F-5A_STANDARD_002.LOD
      Much effort was made to provide those with lower end systems an alternative lower poly-model to be able to enjoy the F-5a,  so please take advantage of this _002.LOD model should you experience frame-rate issues.  While not as "rounded" as the Higher poly version, it is nonetheless just as detailed and extensive.
       NOTE    3:
      ------------
      For those who may find loading times excessive, the .jpg files in the texture folders can be reduced to 50% of their size without sacrificing too much surface detail.

      ****************************************************************
      FEATURES:
      * Three model set including the HAF F-5A standard version (1965 - 1974), the  HAF F-5A with Martin Baker IRQ-7a ejection seat  (1975 - 1999), and the  HAF RF-5A reconnaissance variant with 4 K-92a cameras; each with their own custom loadouts.
      * Three, highly detailed external 3d models, including the RF-5A, whose nose was graciously modeled by ravenclaw_007.
      * Specular color and Normal (bump) maps on all models
      * Seven Level of Detail models (LODs) for each model, providing an almost seamless transition from distance to distance; and perhaps more importantly, ensuring that the frame-rate "impact" of the aircraft is as low as possible.
      * Two sets of highly detailed external Fuel Tanks by ravenclaw_007; both the Factory variety and the Sargent Fletcher variants.
      * Fine-tuned flight parameters in three distinct aircraft data configuration files  for all 3-D models, emphasizing the F-5A's agile and highly maneuverable characteristics - courtesy of  Baffmeister.
      * 8 high resolution texture sets; thoroughly researched historic depictions of the Aircraft fielded by many HAF Wings and Squadrons.
      * Quality sound-set included. Base sounds, by Guuruu, were sourced from existing recordings of various aircraft at air-shows and were modified  to match the prominent characteristics of the F-5A General Electric turbojets, the "buzz" of the M39 Pontiac 20mm machinegun, and the flap/Air-brake, undercarriage deployment and retraction sequences of the Freedom Fighter.
      * Super detailed  'Virtual Cockpit'  with animated throttle control, rudder pedals, control stick,  landing gear lever, canopy, canopy lever, drag-chute lever, weapons selectors and weapon station arming flick switches.
      *Accurate and functional representation of the Norair F-5A gun sight, with animated Mils selector and accompanying animated combining glass. (Mechanics by Crusader)
      * A full complement of highly (or should I say "insanely" detailed  HAF weapons carried by the HAF F-5A, all by ravenclaw_007.
      * Complex animation of canopy opening mechanism, and animated Turbine blades; both thanks to ravenclaw_007
      * GKAB's superb highly detailed crew figure with authentically modeled oxygen mask and flight helmet.
      * All new afterburner, emitter, and engine smoke effects by Guuruu.

      PILOT NOTES
      -----------

      F-5A Limit and Reference Speeds. [Indicated Airspeeds]
      FLAPS: 300kts for both leading and trailing edge.
             NOTE: The F-5A uses full flaps for take off but due to a game bug you must manually select full flaps for take off when player flown. The        AI will use full flaps although you can hear the flap sound cycling between flap 1 and flap 2.
      LANDING GEAR: 240kts
      DRAG CHUTE: 165kts
      CANOPY: 50kts
      NOSE WHEEL STEERING: 65kts
      MAXIMUM INDICATED AIRSPEED: 710kts [redline]
      MAXIMUM MACH: 1.72 Mach design limit but thrust/drag limited to about mach 1.50 in a 60deg dive from 50,000ft.
      --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
      TAKE OFF ROTATION SPEEDS
          13500lbs: 155kts [full internal fuel and two sidewinders]
          20500lbs: 195kts [about the maximum weight possible with included stores]
          NOTE: Use full flaps for take off! Adding 6kts for every 1000lbs above 13500lbs should give good aft stick/rotation speeds.
      --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
      CLIMB SPEEDS
      Military Power
          13500lbs: 375kts with a transition to mach 0.89

      Maximum Power
          13500lbs: 595kts with a transition to mach 0.93
          20500lbs: 480kts with a transition to mach 0.85
      -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
      FINAL APPROACH SPEEDS
          With 500lbs fuel remaining and some empty racks use 160kts. Add 5kts for every additional 500lbs of fuel.
          NOTE: Target touch down speed is 20kts less than final approach speed.

    4. VL Myrsky II - WW2 Indigenous Finnish Fighter (by Veltro 2K)

      VL Myrsky II 'Storm' for STRIKE FIGHTERS 2 
      The VL Myrsky II ('Storm') was a Finnish World War II fighter designed by the State Aircraft Factory (Valtion Lentokonetehdas) for the Finnish Air Force. Entering service during August 1944 the Myrsky was reasonably fast and manoeuvrable enough to dogfight contemporary Soviet aircraftand and it's wide undercarriage gave it decent ground-handling properties. Myrsky usage ended in May 1947 and the last Myrsky flight was made in February 1948.
      Veltro2K very kindly made this for me back in 2014 and it's another one of the lesser known aircraft that he has brought to Strike Fighters. 
      For this revision we have a much better flight model and working flaps.

      INSTRUCTIONS
      1. From the AIRCRAFT folder drag and drop the Myrsky folder into your Aircraft folder.
      2. From the DECALS folder drag and drop the Myrsky folder into your Decals folder.
      3. From the SOUNDS folder drag and drop the TwinWasp file into your Sounds folder.
      That's it! Although you will need to source a suitable 'prop pilot' for your Myrsky.

      CREDITS
      As always, thanks to Third Wire for a great little game/sim.
      Special thanks to Veltro2K for making the 3D model and allowing me to skin it.
      Thanks also to Charles for some valuable tips now incorporated on Version 2 and 3.
      And, finally, thanks to everyone in the wider Third Wire community.

    5. [Fictional] Hawker Hurricane Mk.1 'Yankee Squadron'

      Hawker Hurricane Mk.1 'Yankee Squadron' for STRIKE FIGHTERS 2 
      This is a simple mod of Raven's early Hawker Hurricane Mk.1 to create a fictional Hurricane Mk.1 in service with 'Yankee Squadron' of the Spanish Republican Air Force in the 1938-1939 timeline.

      INSTRUCTIONS
      1. From the AIRCRAFT folder drag and drop the Hurricane1spr folder into your Aircraft folder.
      2. From the DECALS folder drag and drop the Hurricane1spr folder into your Decals folder.
      That's it!
      Please note that the nation name has been set to 'SPAIN' and you should amend this to suit your install and preferences.

      CREDITS
      As always, thanks to Third Wire for a great little game/sim.
      Special thanks to Raven for his awesome work on the Hawker Hurricane in all it's forms and for generously including his templates.
      And, finally, thanks to everyone in the wider Third Wire community.

    8. (Marcfighters) KC-10A Extender in the 90s

      (Marcfighters) KC-10A Extender in the 90s
      This is a redux of the Marcfighters KC-10 mod. It incorporates each wing that used the KC-10A in the early to mid 1990s. This includes the units that still operated the Extender at the transition from SAC to AMC, as well as the transition to Travis and McGuire AFBs. Also included are the two skins for the KDC-10 tanker version used by the Royal Netherlands Air Force
      Installation:     Unlike many of my mods, i reccommend just deleting the previous mod if you have it on hand. This is a vast leap over the older skin set, and coversall available tankers rather than just 6 for each camo style. Allowing overwrite should not hurt anything, just dont complain about clutter if you go that path.
                                Otherwise, like always, unzip and install into any SF2 mod folder.

      Included:    
          5 skins for the 458th ARG, 22d ARW, 4th Wing, and the 60th and 305th AMWs in 1995
          multi camo decal sets for these skins
          nose art as appropriate
          tweeked skins for the KDC-10 aircraft
          original decals for these aircraft
      Known Issues
          the model and flight model are the same that Marcfighters included in the original (SF1) ODS mod. it was meant as eyecandy, and had no pit. as released i have commented out the cockpit, but had a sitting on the nose pit so i could load it in game
           to check work. there are also no windows for the cockpit, the entire fuselage is one piece (cause marking limitations)
          it is sluggish, and flies nose down.
          given there is a newer model known to be in the pipeline (eta two weeks), i am putting the lipstick on this pig but not working too much ini improvement. over 3/4 of the work on this should transfer easy to the new model when it comes.comments on how she flies will be referred to this warning.
      Credit and Thanks

          Anthony Spencer                                  more detailed reference on the KC-10

    9. KC-10_SAC.7z

      SAC Twilight : KC-10A Extender(Marcfighters)
      This is a redux of the Marcfighters KC-10 mod. It incorporates each wing that used the KC-10A in the last few years of SAC service also included is a El Dorado Canyon skin. While we do not currently have this operation in the game, I was able to find pics of ten Extenders in the UK in the middle of April, 1986. Ten KC-10As were used in the operation. you do the math.
      Installation:     Unlike many of my mods, i reccommend just deleting the previous mod if you have it on hand. This is a vast leap over the older skin set, and covers all available tankers rather than just 6 for each camo style.

          4 skins for the 2d BMW, 22d ARW, 68th ARW, and Operation El Dorado Canyon with historical serial numbers
          multi camo decal sets for these skins
          nose art as appropriate

    10. [Fictional] Sukhoi Su-24P 'Fencer' for SF2

      Sukhoi Su-24P for STRIKE FIGHTERS 2 
      This is a simple mod of Veltro2K's Su-24 'Fencer' to create a fictional Su-24P in service with the Republic of Paran Air Force in the 1980-2020 timeline. 
      Please note that this Su-24P is released 'as is' (in response to a request) and it really needs some additional work on loadouts and the skin. In addition, the 3D model unfortunately has some 'rope' issues so you might want to turn shadows off.

      INSTRUCTIONS
      1. From the AIRCRAFT folder drag and drop the Su-24P folder into your Aircraft folder.
      2. From the DECALS folder drag and drop the Su-24P folder into your Decals folder.
      3. From the WEAPONS folder drag and drop the PTB-3000P folder into your Weapons folder.
      That's it!

    14. [Fictional] de Havilland Vampire FB.7 for SF2

      de Havilland Vampire FB.7 for STRIKE FIGHTERS 2
      This is a simple mod of Pasko's Vampire FB.5 to create a fictional Vampire FB.7 in service with the Royal Dhimari Air Force in the 1950 to 1962 timeline with markings for the following three squadrons;
       
      No.6 Squadron - 'The Eagles'
      No.11 Squadron - 'The Rams'
      No.13 Squadron - 'The Antelopes'
      Whilst we now have Third Wire Vampires I hope this version is of interest to those who don't have that particular expansion pack and it also allows me to use Stary's lovely Vampire cockpit. 

      INSTRUCTIONS
      1. From the AIRCRAFT folder drag and drop the VampireFB7 folder into your Aircraft folder.
      2. From the DECALS folder drag and drop the VampireFB7 folder into your Decals folder.
      3. From the WEAPONS folder drag and drop both folders into your Weapons folder.
      That's it!

      CREDITS
      Thanks to TK for the continuous improvement of a great little game/sim. 
      Special thanks to Pasko for this superb add-on aircraft (one of his many).
      Thanks also to Gramps for the desert camo skin and also to Don (C5) for the FM which works just fine in SF2. 
        
      Thanks to Stary for the Vampire cockpit.
      And special thanks to everyone in the wider Third Wire community.

    15. [Fictional] Dhimari F-4E Phantom

      McDonnell Douglas F-4E Phantom for STRIKE FIGHTERS 2
      This is a simple mod of the stock F-4E to give a Dhimari F-4E Phantom with markings for;
      No.1 Squadron - 'The Panthers'
      No.2 Squadron - 'The Hawks'
      As this mod uses the early 'short cannon' F-4E I have restricted the service dates to 1968 to 1973 inclusive. At some time in the future I'll get a later Dhimari F-4E sorted.

      INSTRUCTIONS
      1. From the AIRCRAFT folder drag and drop the F-4E_Dh folder into your Aircraft folder.
      2. From the DECALS folder drag and drop the F-4E_Dh folder into your Decals folder.
      That's it!

      CREDITS
      As always, thanks to Third Wire for a great little game/sim.
      And, finally, thanks to everyone in the wider Third Wire community.

    16. [Fictional] Douglas Dakota C.3 - RAF Desert Camo

      Douglas Dakota C.3 for STRIKE FIGHTERS 2 
      This is a simple mod of the stock C-47A to create a Dakota C.3 in service with the Royal Air Force in the 1948-1967 timeline. Of course, the Royal Air Force were a big user of the Dakota but not in this fictional desert camo scheme which is loosely based on the original Lockheed Hercules C.1 scheme of the very early 1970's (quite an odd scheme for the times). It is flyable and RECON has been added as a secondary role so that you fly low-level recce missions and watch those MiG's stall and crash!

      INSTRUCTIONS
      1. From the AIRCRAFT folder drag and drop the DakotaC3 folder into your Aircraft folder.
      2. From the DECALS folder drag and drop the DakotaC3 folder into your Decals folder.
      That's it!

      CREDITS
      As always, thanks to Third Wire for a great little game/sim.
      Special thanks to gerwin for this lovely desert camo to which I've simply added black undersides and decals.
      Special thanks also to russouk2004 for bringing us the smashing C-47A cockpit.
      And, finally, thanks to everyone in the wider Third Wire community.

    21. [Fictional] Gloster Javelin F.Mk56 'Dhanush'

      Gloster Javelin F.Mk56 for STRIKE FIGHTERS 2
      This is a simple mod of the Veltro2K's superb Gloster Javelin to give a fictional Javelin F.Mk56 'Dhanush' of the Indian Air Force with markings for the equally fictitious No.36 'Trishula' squadron and, in this revised upload, I've also included markings for No.14 Squadron (Bulls).

      BACKSTORY
      The expansion of the Indian Air Force during the mid-1950's saw the planned procurement of the Hawker Hunter fighter-bomber and the English Electric Canberra bomber in substantial quantities but Indian Air Force planners saw the lack of an all-weather interceptor as a problem and urged the Indian Government for increased funds for a suitable aircraft. Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru initially blocked the idea but soon agreed to allow a delegation from the Gloster Aviation Company to make a presentation to the Indian Government and the Chiefs of the Indian Air Force. 
      With the end of the Javelin production line looming Gloster were proposing two new export version of the Javelin Mk8 to India -  the F.Mk55 (Sapphire-enginned) and F.Mk56 (Avon-enginned) versions. Indian Air Force chiefs were very enthusiastic about the possibility of having its three main combat aircraft use the same jet engine (albeit the Javelin's Mk.205 Avon engines had a simple afterburner fitted) and urged Nehru to proceed with the purchase of 80 aircaft but Nehru demanded to meet the Gloster delegation himself to thrash out terms. Gloster cannily sent Graeme Kimmage, who had attended Cambridge University with Nehru, to conduct the negotiations and eventually secure a deal for 80 Javelin F.Mk56's. 
      Entering service with No.36 'Trishula' squadron based at Pathankot in 1958 the Javelins only really became a complete weapon system when mated with the indigenous 'Baan' (Arrow) air-to-air missile which entered service in 1960. From this time the Javelins quickly earned the most appropriate nickname of 'Dhanush' (bow) and saw  limited service over Goa (in the recconnaisance role) but played a major role in the 1965 war with Pakistan claiming several kills including three F-86's, one F-104 and six B-57's. However, with the MiG-21 entering service the Javelin's days were numbered and the Javelin force slowly faded away and by 1975 the popular and legendary 'Dhanush' had gone for good.
       
      INSTRUCTIONS
      1. From the AIRCRAFT folder drag and drop the Javelin56 folder into your Aircraft folder.
      2. From the DECALS folder drag and drop the Javelin56 folder into your Decals folder.
      3. From the WEAPONS folder drag and drop the 'BAAN' and 'TANK300_JAV' folders to your Weapons folder.
      That's it!

      CREDITS
      As always, thanks to Third Wire for a great little game/sim.
      Special thanks to the prolific Veltro2K for producing 'the harmonious dragmaster'. 
      Thanks also to Paulopanz for the excellent skin used in this revised upload.
      Thanks to ghostrider883 for suggesting the 'Dhanush' and 'Baan' names and for suggesting the serial numbers used.

    23. SF2 F-86L "Lima" Sabre Dog Revamp Pack

      SF2 F-86L "Lima" Sabre Dog Revamp Pack    6/9/2020
      "Quarantine Approved - Essential Mods"
      = For SF2 (Any & All) =
      This package is designed to replace the original F-86L from the pack available from the folowing URL:
      https://combatace.com/files/file/10286-sf2-f-86dl-v10/
      by suhjake from 2009
      It is =NOT= necessary to have the original mod pack, as this =WILL= replace it in total. Everything reusable from that pack will be included with this. If you do have the original installed, you will probably wish to remove, move, or delete it. Overwriting may cause conflicts.
      As the Lima's were mostly used by USAF Air National Guard units, that is what's covered here. The following units are depicted herein:
      146th FIS PA ANG (57-60)
      190th FIS ID ANG (59-64)
      194th FIS, CA ANG (58-64)
      199th FIS, HI ANG (58-61)
      3550th CCTW, Moody AFB, GA (late 50s/early 60s)
      3555th CCTW, Perin AFB, TX (late 50s/early/60s)
      and a
      USAF Silver (Generic) -a blank skin for other skinners to use. It does have the 'day glo' panels on the wings, fuselage and tail.
      As only the 194th is listed in the stock squadron list ini, it uses a level=1 decal to activate the displayed squadron name on the Loading/Skin selection screen.
      All of the Original Skins (PA ANG, 3550 & 3555 CCTWs) have been completely redone, although they remain in bmp format. All other skins are brand new for this package. 26 all new serial and buzz numbers, where used, have been created. While correct for this aircraft; all numbers are from the late-production Ds that were converted to Ls, they should be considered 'generic' in nature. State name identifiers and squadron markings are decals. Decal randomization is TRUE for all skins. 
      All weapons, pilots, etc are included. A backup copy of the original Data ini is already provided, as this new one has many modifications and adjustments. 
      As always, fairly easy to follow, detailed install instructions are included. So, please read them .... they can be accessed after unzipperizing. Please follow the 'usual instructions' 
      Happy Landing!
