    2. TU-160 Blackjack - Cold War version for SF2

      TU_160 Blackjack - Cold War version for SF2 series project by AngelP & UllyB
       
       

          The Tupolev Tu-160, NATO reporting name: Blackjack) is a supersonic, variable-sweep wing heavy strategic bomber designed by the Tupolev Design Bureau in the Soviet Union in the 1970s. It is the largest and heaviest Mach 2+ supersonic military aircraft ever built and second only to the XB-70 Valkyrie in overall length.It is the largest and heaviest combat aircraft, the fastest bomber now in use and the largest and heaviest variable-sweep wing airplane ever flown.
          Entering service in 1987, the Tu-160 was the last strategic bomber designed for the Soviet Union. As of 2016, the Russian Air Force's Long Range Aviation branch has at least 16 aircraft in service.The Tu-160 active fleet has been undergoing upgrades to electronics systems since the early 2000s. The Tu-160M modernization programme has begun with the first updated aircraft delivered in December 2014.
      *************************************************************************************************************
      TU-160[ColdWar] test package readme (Baffmeister observations & conclusions)
      This test package requires the addition of the Cockpit folder, Skin folder, and Aircraft Lods to work properly.
      MODEL ISSUES:
      No model animation ID for the leading edge flaps. They are presently set up on a rotation axis but they don't look very good so it is probably better to just disable them for the release version.
      The real TU-160 probably used a combination of ailerons, spoilers and differential H-stab deflections for roll control but only ailerons are available at present. The H-stab is built as one piece so no way to get the differential H-stab deflections functioning.
      WEAPON ISSUES:
      Slightly modified KH-15 nuclear tipped missle included. The base quantity was increased from 4 to 6 to match the present capacity of AGM missle bay. The maximum capacity is 12 on the real Tu-160 but considering the effect on frame rates with so many nukes going off 6 might even be to many. Maybe 2 per plane would be enough. The maximum of 12 would be a good option for later versions with conventional warheads.
      When carrying conventional bombs the accuracy is very poor which is typical for Bombers in game. Maybe someone could put together a "semi smart" bomb that the AI can use that would improve accuracy.
      BOMB BAY ISSUES:
      The original was set up with both manual doors and automatic doors to operate the rotary launcher. I don't think that can be made to work so just using manual doors.
      DATE RANGE:
      For testing the start date is set to 1986 so you can fly F-14 intercepts on the TW Iceland NA terrain. The actual service entry date for the first TU-160 version was April, 1987.
      AVAILABILITY:
      Probably should be RARE or VERY_RARE for a release version but set to VERY_COMMON for test version. Should only take a few trys to get an F-14 intercept against the TU-160 on the Iceland NA terrain.
      ANTI-SHIP ISSUES:
      When doing player flown ANTI-SHIP missions I haven't been able to get the AI to successfully "Attack My Target". They can't seem to get within the firing parameters for the KH-15 Missile and end up flying around in circles. It's possible to get them to do an attack if you lead them around first and line them up outside 10KM before giving the "Attack My Target" command.
      FLIGHT MODEL AND DATA INI ISSUES:
      The flight model still needs work as do the min/max extents, damage modeling and collision points.
       
      ***************************************************************************
       
      *The model has Triple dragchute as in the real aircraft and has one historical skin made . Also the model has proper crew windows and proper crew positions inside the plane.

    3. F-35A/B/C Rework?

      TIS IS NOT MY WORK.
      This is basically just me mashing up all the F-35 mods I could find in the SF2 and SF1 section. More than 90% of this is not my work
      The A variant is basically re upload of kblomkvist's SF2 USAF F-35 redux  the B/C Variant is also from kblomkvist. I just tempered with them a bit.
      I added the AGM-158C LRASM By JosefK  
      I also tempered with the data.ini

    6. AMX A-1A, AMX-T A-1B and AMX A-1M Brazilian Air Force

      The AMX International AMX is a ground-attack aircraft for battlefield interdiction, close air support and reconnaissance missions. It was built until 1999 by AMX International, an Italian-Brazilian joint venture. The AMX is designated A-1 by the Brazilian Air Force, and A-11 Ghibli by the Italian Air Force.
       
      The AMX is capable of operating at high subsonic speed and low altitude, by day or night, and if necessary, from bases with poorly equipped or damaged runways. Low IR signature and reduced radar equivalent cross-section help prevent detection, while low vulnerability of structure and systems aid survivability, while integrated ECM, air-to-air missiles and nose-mounted guns provide self-defence capabilities.
       
      AMX-T
      In 1986, development of a two-seat advanced trainer variant was undertaken. This was intended to provide trainee pilots with experience on fast jets, while still retaining the single-seater's attack capabilities. First flying in 1990, the AMX-T equipped both the Italian and Brazilian air forces.
       
      A-1M
      The product of a Brazilian upgrade program of their A-1s; significant features include a Mectron SCP-01 Scipio radar, Embraer BR2 data link, FLIR Systems navigation equipment, Elbit INS/GPS/databus, the adoption of a glass cockpit,[31] a new OBOGS system and HMD DASH IV.
       

      O AMX International AMX, ou simplesmente AMX é um avião de ataque ar-superfície usado para missões de interdição, apoio aéreo aproximado e reconhecimento aéreo. Foi desenvolvido pelo consórcio internacional AMX Internacional. Na Força Aérea Brasileira, ele é designado A-1 (A-1A para a versão monoplace e A-1B para a versão de dois lugares). Com a modernização o A-1 passa a incorporar o M em sua designação na FAB, tornando-se então A-1M. Na Itália, ele tem o apelido de "Ghibli".
       
      O AMX é capaz de operar em altas velocidades subsônicas a baixa altitude, tanto de dia quanto de noite, e se necessário, a partir de bases pouco equipadas ou com pistas danificadas. O caça conta com relativamente baixa assinatura em infravermelho e reduzida secção frontal ao radar, para melhorar seu percentual de sucesso nas missões. A auto-defesa é proporcionada por mísseis ar-ar, canhões integrados e sistemas de contramedidas eletrônicas
       

      including:
      Two versions of skin
      Two fictitious skins (A-1M)
       
      Three models:
      AMX-1A
      AMX-T A1B
      AMX-1M

    8. [Fictional] Hawker Hurricane 'Furacão'

      Hawker Hurricane 'Furacão' for STRIKE FIGHTERS 2 
      This is a simple mod of Raven's radial engined Hawker Hurricane to create a fictional 'Furacão' in service with the Poruguese Air Force in the 19424-1954 timeline.
      BACKSTORY
      The Hawker Hurricane entered service with the Royal Air Force at the end of 1937 when No.111 Squadron re-equipped with the type at RAF Northolt. By late 1938 the production capacity for Hurricanes at the Hawker Siddeley Aircraft group of companies was sufficient not only to meet the needs of the RAF's ambitious expansion scheme but also sufficient to allow exports to Yugoslavia, South Africa, Romania, Persia, Belgium, Poland and Turkey. Belgium and Yugoslavia had both negotiated production licences but only a handful were produced by Avions Fairey in Belgium before the German invasion in May 1940 and in Yugoslavia the Zmaj factory managed to build 20 Hurricanes before the German invasion in April 1941.
      At the start of World War 2, Portugal was keen to both maintain it's neutrality and also bolster it's defences - recognising that the Portuguese mainland was of strategic importance as was it's island territories of Maderia and the Azores. Indeed, both the UK and Germany considered invading the islands but British diplomacy won the day in June 1940 when the UK formally asked for use of the Azores by invoking the Aliança Luso-Britânica (Anglo-Portuguese Alliance) of 1386 which is still the oldest alliance in the history in the world that is still in force. In return, Portugal asked for a wide variety of defence equipment from the UK including "100 modern monoplane fighter aircraft". With the UK facing a desperate struggle the Portuguese 'wish list' was largely unfulfilled until much later in the war but in December 1940 the British government agreed to supply 100 Hurricane fighters by the end of the following year. 
      However, there was an urgent demand for Rolls-Royce Merlin engines for the RAF's day fighters and also for the Boulton & Paul Defiant and Bristol Beaufighter night fighters. In addition, RAF Bomber Command were about to go on the offensive with the Handley-Page Halifax having just entered service and the superlative Avro Lancaster and de Havilland Mosquito were both on the horizon. In February 1941 the British Prime Minister, Winston Churchill, blocked the sale outright but Sydney Camm at Hawker considered that the Hurricane airframe could be adapted to take a different engine and Camm was already aware that Roy Fedden of the Bristol Engine Company had developed a modular engine installation or 'power egg' for the Bristol Hercules radial engine. Fedden and Camm quickly schemed the Hercules powered Hurricane Mk.III and instructed the Gloster Aircraft Company, who had been manufacturing Hurricanes for the RAF on behalf of its parent company since 1939, to slot in 250 Hurricane Mk.III's onto the Hucclecote production line. Whilst there was no Hurricane Mk.III prototype as such, the first two production aircraft were thoroughly tested by Gloster's chief test pilot Gerry Sayer and also by Bill Humble of Hawker's and both praised it's flying characteristics noting that "the aircraft is simple and easy to fly and has no apparent vices" although the stalling speed was 8 knots higher than a standard Hurricane.
      The first 100 Hurricane Mk.III's were crated and shipped to Portugal arriving at Santo Amaro in November 1941. After local assembly, they were flown to Ota Air Base and Sintra Air Base to eventually equip six day fighter squadrons of the Aeronáutica Militar (Army Aviation) although, at the time, these squadrons (typically, with 15 aircraft on strength) were confusingly classed as 'flights' with two-digit flight codes that were used to designate the squadron. 'SU' Flight were the first to be declared operational at Ota in April 1942 followed by 'MP' flight at Sintra. In Aeronáutica Militar service the Hurricane aircraft were locally known as the Furacão and remained in service even after the formation of the Força Aérea Portuguesa in 1952 and it was not until August 1954 that the Furacão finally passed from service.
      INSTRUCTIONS
      1. From the AIRCRAFT folder drag and drop the Furacao folder into your Aircraft folder.
      2. From the DECALS folder drag and drop the Furacao folder into your Decals folder.
      3. From the WEAPONS folder drag and drop the FuracaoTank into your Weapons folder.
      That's it!

    11. Vultee P-66 Vanguard

      The Vultee P-66 Vanguard was a United States Army Air Forces fighter aircraft. It was initially ordered by Sweden, but by the time the aircraft were ready for delivery in 1941, the United States would not allow them to be exported, designating them as P-66s and retaining them for defensive and training purposes. Eventually, a large number were sent to China where they were pressed into service as combat aircraft with mixed results.

      Massive thanks to wpnssgt for the 3D model. Having only joined this community in early 2008 I'm guessing that this predates the Harrier contained in Wings Over Europe and, if so, then fair play - it's a beaut! As I've said before, "there's gold in them thar archives"!
      Thanks also to C5 for the FM and to Sundowner for the skin.

    14. Boeing B-52K Stratofortress B.1

      Boeing B-52K Stratofortress B.1 for STRIKE FIGHTERS 2 
      This is a very simple mod of the stock (non-flyable) Third Wire B-52K to give a fictional and flyable B-52K Stratofortress B.1 in service with No.9 Squadron attached to RAF South East Asia Command.
      Also included are fictional 'Flail' and 'Flambard' bombs with Flail being especially useful against soft-skin targets (or fuel tanks if you get tasked against these in Strike missions) and Flambard being a particularly nasty incendiary bomb. You can, of course, convert it to use nukes but bombing from 12,000m with conventional ordnance is a real challenge but great fun. As we don't have a proper B-52 pit you'll have to make do with the one supplied or go your own way and I mainly prefer to fly this one with cockpit toggle off.

    15. [Fictional] Hawker Hunter F.6M (Falklands)

      Hawker Hunter F.6M for STRIKE FIGHTERS 2 
      Requires SF2 DLC 001: Hunter F.6 (60) Royal Netherlands Air Force
      This is a very simple mod of the above to give a fictional Hunter F.6M in service with RAF South Atlantic Command with markings for No.1435 Flight. You will need to have the new 'DLC' Hunter as this mod will not work with any Hunter that isn't DLC 001 although you are welcome to reverse engineer it to suit what Hunter(s) you have in your install.

      BACKSTORY
      The introduction of the Lightning F.1 and F.1A into RAF Fighter Command in 1960 and 1961 began to free-up Hunter F.6's most of which were earmarked for conversion into ground-attack aircraft for the RAF (as the FGA.9) or for export. But the Falklands Crisis of May 1961 led to the decision to base a detachment of fighter aircraft at RAF Stanley and a batch of 8 Hawker Hunter F.6's were urgently converted into F.6M's a minimum-change conversion armed with the Firestreak missile and improved navigation and radio equipment. The first four Hunter F.6M's were dispatched as deck cargo arriving at Port Stanley in September 1961 to form No.1435 Flight who quickly christened the aircraft Faith, Hope, Charity and Desperation. The second batch of Hunters arrived in December 1961 but, with improving diplomatic relations, they were basically used to keep the original four aircraft airworthy until a rotation policy was adopted. The Hunter F.6M's served until 1972 when they were replaced by Lightning F.2A's.

      INSTRUCTIONS
      1. From the AIRCRAFT folder drag and drop the HunterF6M folder into your Aircraft folder.
      2. From the DECALS folder drag and drop the HunterF6M folder into your Decals folder.
      That's it!

    18. Dassault Mystère IVA

      The Mystère IV was an evolutionary development of the Mystère II aircraft.
      Although bearing an external resemblance to the earlier aircraft, the Mystère IV
      was in fact a new design with aerodynamic improvements for supersonic flight.
      The prototype first flew on 28 September 1952, and the aircraft entered service
      in April 1953. The first 50 Mystere IVA production aircraft were powered by
      British Rolls-Royce Tay turbojets, while the remainder had the French-built
      Hispano-Suiza Verdon 350 version of that engine.
      This plane was "the star" of War of the Stripes over Suez in 1956
      France was the main operator of the Mystère IV and at the peak usage operated
      6 squadrons. Most of the aircraft were purchased under a United States Offshore
      Procurement contract and many were returned to US custody after they were retired.
      In April 1953 the United States government and the United States Air Force placed
      an order for 223 aircraft to be operated by the French. The new Mystère IVs were
      used in the 1956 Suez Crisis and continued in use into the 1980s
      The Mystère IV became Israel's first swept-wing fighter when an order for Mystère
      IIs was changed to 24 Mystère IVs in 1955, which were delivered from April to June
      1956, equipping 101 Squadron. A further 36 were delivered in August 1956, with a
      final aircraft, equipped for reconnaissance duties, delivered in September 1956.
      On 29 October 1956, when Israel attacked Egypt in the opening move of what became
      known as the Suez Crisis, invading the Sinai Peninsula, the Mystères of 101 Squadron
      were deployed on both air-to-air and ground attack mission.
      A second squadron, 109 Squadron was equipped with the Mystère IV in December 1956,
      while 101 Squadron passed its Mystères to 116 Squadron in November 1961. Israel
      planned to replace the Mystère IV with the Douglas A-4 Skyhawk, but 109 and 116
      Squadron still operated the French fighter on the outbreak of the Six-Day War.
      The Mystère was finally retired from Israeli service on 18 March 1971.
      India procured 104 of aircraft in 1957 and used them extensively in the Indo-Pakistani
      War of 1965. The phasing out of the aircraft started soon after the 1965 Indo-Pakistani
      War, though it saw further action in the Indo-Pakistani War of 1971, it was completely
      phased out of the Indian Air Force by 1973.

      This is a big High Res update of my previous and other modders skins and new ones.

    19. [Fictional] Republic F-7C Thunderstorm

      Republic F-7C Thunderstorm for STRIKE FIGHTERS 2 
      This is a very simple mod of the stock MiG-23ML/P to give a fictional Republic F-7C Thunderstorm in service with the 428th and 429th Tactical Fighter Squadrons in the Vietnam SEA style skin with 'Combat Lancer' rudder flashes. 
      The USAF SEA style scheme is a lucky find as it's one of the stock Czech camo schemes! Thanks TK!

      BACKSTORY
      During late 1958 the Langley Laboratory made the breakthrough that led to the realisation of a valid variable-sweep wing and by early 1959 Tactical Air Command (TAC) could see that this massive technological breakthrough could be the key to help them in their search for a tactical strike fighter to replace both the F-100 Super Sabre and the F-105 Thunderchief. Pretty soon however the numerical values for unrefuelled range and payload that TAC had attached to their mission requirements had the effect of turning all the paper studies from F-105 sized machines to much larger tactical bombers with a corresponding increase in cost and price and this reduced affordability was of great concern to TAC.
      In the Autumn of 1959 TAC wisely decided to split their requirement into a smaller tactical fighter to replace the F-100 and a larger tactical bomber to replace the F-105, B-57 and B-66. The larger aircraft would evolve into Specific Operational Requirement No.183 that would launch the important TFX (tactical fighter experimental) programme and eventually lead (via a tortuous route) to the outstanding but highly compromised F-111 family whilst the smaller aircraft would lead to Specific Operational Requirement No.182 or TAX (tactical aircraft experimental).
      Issued in March 1960 SOR182 called for a single-seat tactical fighter aircraft with “reduced dependence of paved runways” and with “the ability to carry a nuclear bomb at supersonic speed at tree-top height”. Requests for Proposals were immediately sent out to industry and Republic Aviation’s proposal soon gained the support of TAC by virtue of its use of a variable-sweep wing but also by the use of the existing J75 turbojet and F-105 avionics. With the end of F-105 production on the horizon Republic Aviation pushed hard for SOR182/TAX and in February 1961 they were rewarded with a contract for 24 prototype and pre-production YF-110 aircraft and 400 production F-110A machines and Republic wasted no time in bestowing the name of ‘Thunderstorm’ to the latest of their long line of fighter aircraft.

      Republic Aviation were fortunate in being awarded the contract before Secretary of Defence Robert S. McNamara had got into his stride and the programme largely escaped McNamara and his whiz-kids. Development moved swiftly and during 1962 the programme was re-designated F-7 under the new tri-service designation scheme and the first prototype took to the air on December 22nd 1962 a full year ahead of the F-111A. Entering service in June 1965 the F-7A was followed by the F-7B two-seat trainer version and the more advanced F-7C version that first deployed to Vietnam in March 1968 when a two-squadron wing transferred to Takhli Royal Thia AFB, Thailand in a deployment called ‘Combat Lancer’.

      INSTRUCTIONS
      1. From the AIRCRAFT folder drag and drop the F-7C folder into your Aircraft folder.
      2. From the DECALS folder drag and drop the F-7C folder into your Decals folder.

    20. [Fictional] BAC Lightning F.53H

      BAC Lightning F.53H for STRIKE FIGHTERS 2 
      This is a very simple mod of the stock Lightning F.53 to give a fictional Lightning F.53H of the Hungarian Air Force.

      BACKSTORY
      The revolutions of 1989 generally had a domino effect across Eastern Europe and Hungary soon followed Poland and in March 1989 the government bravely declared the anniversary of the 1848 Revolution a national holiday and this was soon followed by the reburial of former Prime Minister Imre Nagy (executed after the 1956 Revolution) and calls for Soviet forces to leave Hungary. Popular opposition to the Communist regime continued, eventually leading to Mátyás Szurös declaring Hungary a republic on October 23rd, 1989 and the free elections of March 1990. However. with Soviet forces withdrawing fast the Hungarian Air Force (Magyar Légiero) was soon short of equipment and spares and when the Soviet MiG-29's departed from Tokol in 1991 the air defence of Hungary rested with literally a handful of poorly maintained MiG-21's. 
      During the late 1980's British Aerospace had bought back many of the surviving Saudi Lightning F.53's and had hoped to sell them to Austria (whose air force were hard-pressed to intercept a business jet) but the deal fell through and the Lightnings had continued to lanquish at Warton prompting a tentative offer to sell them to Hungary at a knock-down price. In May 1991 the UK Government bought 26 of the ex-Saudi Lightning F.53's and gifted them to the Hungarian Air Force in a move believed to have orchestrated by President George H. Bush. 
      Arriving in August 1991 the Lightnings were operated by the 59th Tactical Fighter Wing at Kecskemét AFB and served until 1998 when they were replaced by MiG-29's donated from Germany and Poland.
       
      INSTRUCTIONS
      1. From the AIRCRAFT folder drag and drop the LightningF53H folder into your Aircraft folder.
      2. From the DECALS folder drag and drop the LightningF53H folder into your Decals folder.

    21. [Fictional] Nakajima Ki-101 (IJAAF Spitfire IXc)

      Nakajima Ki-101 'Heavenly Lion' for STRIKE FIGHTERS 2
      This is a simple mod of the stock 'AI' Thirdwire Spitfire F.9C to give a flyable 'what if' Nakajima Ki-101 interceptor-fighter of the Imperial Japanese Army Air Force in mid-1945.
      This mod requires you to have Expansion Pack 1 so that you have the necessary Third Wire Spitfire LOD's that are, of course, not included here.

      BACKSTORY
      In February 1943 the unfortunate Pilot Office P. Lonker of No.64 squadron descended through the fog to land his brand-new Spitfire IX at the Luftwaffe airfield near Brest in the mistaken belief that it was his home base of Hornchurch. Whilst the Spitfire was no secret to the Germans this pristine example was gratefully received and sent to the Dornier factory in Altenrhein (Switzerland) where it was studied in detail with production drawings made and tooling fabricated for the proposed production of the Spitfire for the Swiss Air Force. 
      However, during the early Spring of 1944 the decision was made to ship the drawings and tooling to the Nakajima Aircraft Company in Japan for production of the Spitfire for defence against American bombers including the B-29 then just coming into service in forward bases in China and India. Designated as the Ki-101 'Heavenly Lion' production started quickly enough but disaster struck when the Ota factory was bombed (ironically by B-29's) in December 1944 with only a handful of aircraft completed and all without engines as Aichi Atsuta had failed to deliver a single example of the licence-built Daimler-Benz DB605 engine. Miraculously, production restarted in February 1945 with the first Aichi built engines arriving in March allowing the first squadron to re-equip in May 1945. Production records indicate that only 45 Ki-101's were manufactured and there were no recorded incidents of air combat between the 'Heavenly Lion' and allied aircraft

      INSTRUCTIONS
      1. From the AIRCRAFT folder drag and drop the SpitfireF9_IJAAF folder into your Aircraft folder.
      2. From the DECALS folder drag and drop the SpitfireF9_IJAAF folder into your main Decals folder.
      Pilot - Almost certainly you'll have a Third Wire 'Jet Jock' flying your 'Heavenly Lion' so you'll need to swap him out for something more appropriate.
      N.B. Once you installed your aircraft you'll find it named Ki-101 'Heavenly Lion' in the drop-down menu. For best results you will need to manipulate your nations list to include the Imperial Japanese Army Air Force.
      That's it!

      CREDITS
      As always, thanks to Third Wire for a great little game/sim.

    22. F-5GN

      F-5GN Sea Tiger (What if)
      *****************************************************
      This mod is made for SF2.
      ----------------------------------------------------------
      I. History (fiction)
      In 1969 there were decisive elections in West Germany. In reality, the Social Democrats won.
      A new foreign policy followed and a period of reduction of tensions between East and West.
      WHAT IF, the other side had won?
      What if the conservatives had won and Franz Joseph Strauß (an old bavarian Commie eater) would have become Chancellor of the Federal Republic of Germany?
      And so it starts.
      In 1969 Strauß was elected as Chancellor. A period of rising tensions between East and West
       started. To protect the sea lanes between Europe and America the west german parliament Bundestag decided to build up a west german carrier force consisting of 3 carriers.
      The american gouvernment was pleased and offered to sell 3 carriers of the Essex class (subclass Ticonderoga).
      The first ship which was handed over was CV-34 Oriskany in 1969. Renamed in R-22 Theodor Heuss it was core of the first west german carrier group. 1973 CV-38 Shangri-La became R-23 Heinrich Lübke (later renamed in Walter Scheel) and two years later CV-45 Valley Forge became R-24 Gustav Heinemann.
      The americans offered A-4 Skyhawk and F-8 Crusader as planes for the carrier group. The Bundesmarine accepted the A-4, but rejected the Crusader, because the Bundesmarine wanted a more multi role capable plane, not only a pure fighter.
      At this moment Northrop entered the competition and offered a navalised version of the brand new F-5E Tiger. Under the designation F-5GN (German Navy) it should be produced in America and Germany. The west german government accepted the offer and the serial production of the F-5GN started. During flight tests on the way the US Marines decided, that it would be a good idea to replace their old F-8 Crusaders with F-5GN planes. So the F-5GN became a Marine plane.
      Later, when the Marines retired their attack carriers the surviving F-5GN were transfered to Top Gun school.
      The F-5GN stayed in west german service till 1995. Then it was replaced by F-31 Mustang II.

      The Heinkel He 100 was a German pre-World War II fighter aircraft design from Heinkel. Although it proved to be one of the fastest fighter aircraft in the world at the time of its development, the design was not ordered into series production. Approximately 19 prototypes and pre-production examples were built. None are known to have survived the war.

      This is a simple mod of the stock Hunter FGA.9 to create a fictional Hunter FGA.9D in service with Royal Air Force Middle East Command in the 1961-1972 timeline. It's really just a Hunter FGA.9 with a desert camo (two squadrons are featured; No.43 Squadron and No.112 Squadron with a sharkmouth) but it looks cool when on emergency deployment to Dhimar!

      INSTRUCTIONS
      1. From the AIRCRAFT folder drag and drop the HunterFGA9D folder into your Aircraft folder.
      2. From the DECALS folder drag and drop the HunterFGA9D folder into your Decals folder.
      That's it!
