    1. SF2 TMF Mirage 5F Pack

      SF2 TMF Mirage 5F Pack       5/17/2024
      -For SF2, Any and All- (Full 5 Merged Suggested)
      This is a NEW aircraft, based on an pre-existing TMF aircraft LOD, used to (re)create the Mirage 5F fighter-bomber as used by the French Air Force. To let you all know, no "official" 5F was ever created and relased by TMF. So, consider this an "un-official" version <gr>!
      This mod is set up and labeled to cause NO conflicts with the Mirage 5F available from within the game or any others that may exist.  Skins remain in its original bmp format. Most markings are decals, with the exception of the AdA Rudder tri-color bands on the NMF skin. Decal Randomization is TRUE.  All necessary items are provided, serial number decals, weapons (drop tanks), pilots, seats, sounds, effects, and so forth. Some, you've probably got already!!! If I missed any, PLEASE let me know and I'll get it fixed. The canopy operates with the Standard Animations Keystroke (tm), Shift/0 (zero)
      The aircraft is supplied with 2 skins for EC 3/13 Auvergne:
      NMF (start date=1)
      Euro Camo (<1975)
      As indicated, the SF2 "date switch" is active.
      When in-game, on the Aircraft Selection Dropdown you'll see:
      Mirage 5F (TMF)
      So you can't mistake it for anything other than TMF Birds (tm). This will also diferentiate THIS one from the 3W 5F that's stock in game, but is AI only. On that note, the supplied cockpit was originally designed for use with the 3W AI Mirage 5F. For those wishing to do so, I've supplied the needed inis, and the instructional read-me.
      As always, fairly easy to follow, yet detailed install instructions are included. So, please read them. All original readmes, when discoverable, are included. The 'Change Log' is, as always, in the Notes section below.
      Good Hunting & Happy Landings!

    2. F-19 Stealth Fighter

      F-19 Stealth Fighter
      September 13th, 2022 (1st Release)
      by Julhelm, Dels and Menrva
      >For Strike Fighters 2 games
      This is a rework of Julhelm's fantastic F-19 stealth fighter 3d model, now featuring a centre strut canopy structure (thanks to a cheap trick of repainting the bubble canopy glass) and a new cockpit, a purposely modified F-117A cockpit by Dels.
      Among the improvements, it now features proper hit boxes and collision points, proper location for position lights and landing gear lights, reworked skins, aircraft characteristics and loadouts meant to resemble the ones of Microprose's F-19 Stealth Fighter game.
      It still features two internal weapon bays (unlike Microprose's exaggerated four bays), but with properly reworked limits; you can have 4x Sidewinders or 3x AMRAAMs per bay, 2x bombs or AGMs depending on their overall weight and size. A 20mm cannon is on the nose with 680 rounds, and an extra 1,900 lbs fuel cell has been added for a total of 11,800 lbs of fuel; non-afterburning engines are used for stealth reasons. An (invisible) arrester hook has been added as well, since Microprose's version could also operate from aircraft carriers.
      Skins feature the 83-019 serial number and an F letter on the vertical tails; these two details come from a picture of a menu screen in one of the releases of Microprose's F-19 Stealth Fighter game, where you could choose between an F-19 or an F-117A. More serial numbers couldn't be featured as the 3d model of the aircraft does not support decals without decal bleeding issues. Just imagine piloting the only example of F-19 in very black operations!
      Three new skins were created: a Prototype Black skin created from the specular texture Julhelm had made, and Desert and Arctic camo skins made by modifying the USAF Euro camo skin created by kblomkvist.
      NOTE: Strike Fighters 2 has no proper IRST functionality, so for the purpose of launching AMRAAMs a very basic ACM radar mode has been added to the avionics file of the aircraft. Moreover, the default cockpit features an obtrusive front strut which makes the cannon difficult to use. You can activate an alternative cockpit LOD in the relative INI file.
      >What-if Backstory
      During the development of the Have Blue demonstrators, Lockheed's Skunk Works division also conceived a third experimental stealth aircraft featuring an entirely different shape, rounded fuselage and wings, and meant to have air combat capabilities. The CIA got wind of it, classifying it at the highest possible level and using it as a cover-up story for the stealth aircraft that came to be the F-117A Nighthawk. In 1986, the Testor Corporation released a plastic model aircraft kit, calling it the "F-19 Stealth Fighter". Jane's All the World's Aircraft 1987-88 book listed an RF-19 as a Lockheed development project. The conceptual drawings of it were generally similar to Testor's design. In 1988 a combat flight simulator game, F-19 Stealth Fighter by Microprose, was released just moments before the public unveiling of the F-117A Nighthawk attack aircraft, which is said to be what it sought to represent. The reality is that a single F-19 existed and, during secret flights over Groom Lake, this experimental aircraft showed unique strength and was deemed a super-aircraft. Due to its funding and mantaining costs, the project was officially abandoned in 1983. Unofficially, this single example of F-19 took part in black operations all over the world until 1997. It is named F-19A Nightowl, internally nicknamed "Flying Frisbee" for its rounded shape and also referred to as "Ghostrider" for allegedly being affiliated with the 416th TFS Ghost Riders flying the F-117A Nighthawk.
      "The view would have been frightening to most men, there were solid clouds overhead at 4000 feet. He flew through the showers, he more heard than saw on this black night and the dark outlines of the trees appeared to reach up and snatch at his speeding fighter. Only a madman would be so low on such a night. 'So much the better' he smiled in his oxygen mask" - Tom Clancy's Red Storm Rising

    3. 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 bombs (EOGB) do not work as intended in SF2, there are issues about them not locking on target and about AI behaviour. The GBU-39 has been set as an EOGR, so it works like a missile; this is a needed workaround to have them loaded properly on a rack while keeping the GPS guidance property.
      -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):
      -Heberth, for making this (once forgotten) fantastic 3d model.
      -Julhelm, for sharing the files of his superb F-22A cockpit 3d model, allowing yakarov79 to improve upon it.
      -yakarov79, for his invaluable help in finalizing the 3d model and remaking the base textures; you have my gratitude.
      -baffmeister, for his excellent flight model; it's thanks to him if this beauty flies as good as it looks.
      -Crusader, for reworking the avionics enhancement made for Julhelm's F-22A cockpit, and for improving the AIM missiles.
      -guuruu, for sharing his RWR symbols improvement mod and for making better engine sounds.
      -ravenclaw_007, for the AIM missiles from his top notch Weapons Pack 2, the GBU-32 JDAM bomb and the ACES II seat 3d models.
      -viper63a, for his old F-22A USAF Raptors Redux package, from which I borrowed decals.
      -simonmiller416, for his smokeless rocket effects mod.
      -mue, for his LOD Viewer which helped immensely in the making of the skins.
      -Cocas, for further help given to Heberth for the aircraft's 3d model.
      -My girlfriend, for supporting me in all of my endeavours.
      Additional ReadMe files by yakarov79 and baffmeister have been included among few others; be sure to read those to know about their work in better detail.

      >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.

    4. SF2 TMF Mirage 5DE & Mirage 5SDE Upgrade/Remod Pack

      SF2 TMF Mirage 5DE & Mirage 5SDE Upgrade/Remod Pack       5/10/2024
      -For SF2, Any and All-(Full 5 Merged Suggested)
      This is a full upgrade/remod pack for The Mirage Factory's Mirage 5SD of the Lybian Air force, and the Mirage 5SDE as used by the Egyptian Air Force. As you can see, this mod contains 2 aircraft:
      Mirage 5DE:

      No.69 Sqdn (Early)

      So you can't mistake it for anything other than TMF Birds (tm). This will also differentialize these from the 3rd Wire stock & DLC versions.
      As always, fairly easy to follow, yet detailed install instructions are included. So, please read them. All original readmes, when discoverable, are included. The 'Change Log' is, as always, in the Notes section below.

    5. Mirage F1EE (1992-2000)

      Mirage F1EE (1992-2000)
      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.
      F1EE_Late specifics:
      Same as EE_Early plus:
      extra AIM-9 on P2 stations (to be accurate, not sure all aircraft had the modification, maybe just experimental on one) Seat Mk6 Cockpit layout modified (provision for future ALR-300 on left side) Covered units :
      Ala 14.
      This addon is and will in all cases remain freeware.
      Released under CombatAce Fair-Use terms.
      Enjoy

    6. SF2 TMF K'fir C1 & F-21A Lion Upgrade/Remod Pack

      SF2 TMF K'fir C1 & F-21A Lion Upgrade/Remod Pack       5/3/2024
      -For SF2, Any and All-(SF2:I and/or Full 5 Merged Suggested)
      This is a full upgrade/remod pack for The Mirage Factory's IAI K'fir C1 & F-21A Lion as used by the Israeli Defense Force Air Force, and the US Navy and US Marine Corps. The later two were used in dissimilar combat training as adversery aircraft (see Notes).
      Included in this package are the 2 full aircraft, with one or more skins:
      Kfir C1:
      101 Squadron (Camo w/ID Panels)
      F-21A Lion:
      VF-43 "Challengers" (USN) (2-tone Grays)
      VMAT-401 "Snipers" (USMC) (IDF style Desert Camo)
      They are set up and labeled to cause =NO= conflicts with the Kfirs available as stock within the game or any others that may exist.  Skins remain in their original bmp format. National markings are painted on, and my (Patent Pending) fake insignia and SqTail decals are active (when needed), allowing the squadron's name & Nation Name to be displayed on the Loadout screen. Serial number Decal Randomization is TRUE. All serial numbers are 100% historically accurate for their various units (all 32 for the IDF).  All necessary items are provided, serial number decals, weapons (drop tanks), pilots, seats, sounds, effects, and so forth. Some, you've probably got already. If I missed any, PLEASE let me know and I'll get it fixed.
      The canards have been removed from the C1 through the use of the 'remove component trick'. The F-21A retains it's canards. For both models, the canopy operates with the Standard Animation Keystroke (tm), Shift/0 (zero). The animation for the intake shock cones has also been corrected, thanks to Crusader.
      When in-game, on the Aircraft Selection Drop down you'll see:
      Kfir C1 (TMF)
      and
      F-21A Lion (C.1P) (TMF)
      So you can't mistake them for anything other than TMF Birds (tm). Of course, this also removes confusion from the stock 3rd Wire Birds too (although the F-21A IS a DLC).
      As always, fairly easy to follow, yet detailed install instructions are included. So, please read them. All original readmes, when discoverable, are included. The 'Change Log' is, as always, in the Notes section below.

    12. SF2 IAI Dagger (FAA) by The Mirage Factory Upgrade/Remod Pack

      SF2 IAI Dagger (FAA) by The Mirage Factory Upgrade/Remod Pack       4/4/2024
      -For SF2, Any and All-(Full 5 Merged Suggested)
      This is a full upgrade/remod pack for The Mirage Factory's IAI Dagger as used by the Argentine Air Force (Fuerza Aérea Argentina or FAA).
      Skins remain in their original bmp format.  All necessary items are provided, weapons, pilots, seats, sounds, effects, and so forth (most weapons used ARE stock 3W items, with few exceptions). This is a "nationalized" single-user only aircraft.
      This aircraft is supplied with 3 skins:
      Camo with NO ID bands (original skin)
      Camo with Blue ID Bands
      Camo with Yellow ID Bands (both with a 1982 start date)
      All skins use the same 'pool' of 39 ID/serial numbers. All serials are 100% hisorically accurate. As can be expected, the SF2 Date Switch (tm) is active, although the 2 Color Banded Birds (tm) both have the 1982 start date for use during the Falkland War (as best as my research could narrow down)  Also, the Date Switch is used on the Loadout ini, as newer missiles become available.
      When in-game, on the Aircraft Selection Drop-down you'll see:
      Dagger (TMF)
      So you can't mistake them for anything else but TMF Birds (tm). Also. this will diferentiate it from the Other Daggers available
      As always, fairly easy to follow, yet detailed install instructions are included. So, please read them. All original readmes, when discoverable, are included. The 'Change Log' is, as always, in the Notes section below.
      Happy Landings!

    13. Mirage F1EE (1981-1993)

      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.
      F1EE_Early specifics:
      no R550, AIM-9 SideWinder instead R530 and S530F capability but S530F not used by EdA at this time CLB4, no CLB8 Seat Mk4 Inertial Navigation System Sagem UNI43 RWR BF AAR probe AN/ALE-40 Chaffs Flares dispenser (actually introduced after delivery, in ~mid 1980s) Syrel ELINT pod capability Covered units :
      Ala 46, 462 Escuadron.
      This addon is and will in all cases remain freeware.
      Released under CombatAce Fair-Use terms.
      Enjoy
      The Mirage F-1 Team.

    14. SF2 TMF Nesher (IDF) Upgrade/Remod Pack

      SF2 TMF Nesher (IDF) Upgrade/Remod Pack       4/5/2024
      -For SF2, Any and All-(SF2:I and/or Full 5 Merged Suggested)
      This is a full upgrade/remod pack for The Mirage Factory's Dassault Nesher as used by the Israeli Defense Force Air Force. Included in this package are 3 different skins:
      101 Squadron (Camo)
      253 Squadron (Camo)
      117 Squadron (Camo w/Orange ID Triangles <1973)
      They are set up and labeled to cause NO conflicts with the Nesher available as stock within the game or any others that may exist.  Skins remain in their original bmp format. Almost all markings are decals, and Decal Randomization is TRUE. All decals used are stock, in game items (you don't need SF2I for these) As you can see above, the SF2 date switch is active for the later, "Orange ID Triangle" skin. 101 & 253 Squadrons share the same start date (no actual date listed), meaning they're avaliable from the initial date of service, and are available to choose from the drop down menu. All necessary items are provided, weapons (drop tanks), pilots, seats, sounds, effects, and so forth. Some, you've probably got already!!!
      When in-game, on the Aircraft Selection Dropdown you'll see:
      Nesher S (TMF)
      So you can't mistake them for anything other than TMF Birds (tm). This also means, there'll be NO conflict with the other Neshers, of mods thereof, out there.
      As always, fairly easy to follow, yet detailed install instructions are included. So, please read them. All original readmes, when discoverable, are included. The 'Change Log' is, as always, in the Notes section below.
      Happy Landings!

    15. SF2 TMF Mirage IIICZ (SAAF) by PCG Upgrade/Remod Pack

      SF2 TMF Mirage IIICZ (SAAF) by PCG Upgrade/Remod Pack       3/24/2024
      -For SF2, Any and All-(Full 5 Merged Suggested)
      Found in the Archives! Didn't even know there WAS a TMF version! But here it is!!! :)
      This is a full upgrade/remod pack for The Mirage Factory's Dassault Mirage IIICZ by PCG as used by the South AFrican Air Force.
      Even though there is =NOT= a stock 3W Mirage IIICZ per se, this is set up and labeled to cause =NO= conflicts with any (other) Mirages available for the game (including the version built by Ludo M.54 from a stock 3W Mirage). Skins remain in their original bmp format.  All necessary items are provided, weapons, pilots, seats, sounds, effects, and so forth (most weapons used ARE stock 3W items, with few exceptions). This is a "nationalized" single-user only aircraft.
      This aircraft is supplied with 3 skins:
      "NMF"- as originally delivered
      "Camo1" - Tan/Green (<1971)
      "Lo-Viz" - 2-tone Blue & Grey (~1982)
      All 16 CZs served with No.2 Squadron, “Flying Cheetahs”.
      All skins use the same 'pool' of 16 ID/serial numbers. As can be expected, the SF2 Date Switch (tm) is active, and the LoViz skin starts in 1982 (best guess! based upon Ludo's Mirage F1CZ_Late). Also, the Date Switch is used on the Loadout ini, as newer missiles become available.
      When in-game, on the Aircraft Selection Dropdown you'll see:
      Mirage IIICZ (TMF)
      So you can't mistake them for anything else but TMF Birds (tm).
      As always, fairly easy to follow, yet detailed install instructions are included. So, please read them. All original readmes, when discoverable, are included. The 'Change Log' is, as always, in the Notes section below. As an Extra Added Bonus (tm), I've included a bunch of PDFs I found online, documenting the Development & History of the Mirage III & its variants in SAAF service. They are OUTSTANDING docs, and were the basis for some of the changes I've implemented here. Well worth the read!
      Happy Landings!

    16. SF2 TMF Mirage IIIEA (FAA) Upgrade/Remod Pack

      SF2 TMF Mirage IIIEA (FAA) Upgrade/Remod Pack       3/14/2024
       
      -For SF2, Any and All-(Full 5 Merged Suggested)
      This is a full upgrade/remod pack for The Mirage Factory's Dassault Mirage IIIEA as used by the Argentine Air Force (Fuerza Aérea Argentina).
      Even though there is =NOT= a stock 3W Mirage IIIEA, this is set up and labeled to cause NO conflicts with any (other) Mirages available for the game (including the Bandidos version). Skins remain in their original bmp format.  All necessary items are provided, weapons, pilots, seats, sounds, effects, and so forth (most weapons used ARE stock 3W items, with few exceptions). This is a "nationalized" single-user only aircraft.
      This aircraft is supplied with 2 skins:
      Ar1 - 8th Air Brigade, Camo
      LoViz - Grupo 6 (LoViz Grey <1990)
      Both skins use the same 'pool' of 16 ID/serial numbers, although the Lo-Viz only carries it's number on the front nose gear door (probably not historically correct - simply done for playability). These decals are the originals as issued in 2005. As can be expected, the SF2 Date Switch (tm) is active, and the LoViz skin starts in 1990.
      When in-game, on the Aircraft Selection Dropdown you'll see:
      Mirage IIIEA (TMF)
      So you can't mistake them for anything else but TMF Birds (tm).
      As always, fairly easy to follow, yet detailed install instructions are included. So, please read them. All original readmes, when discoverable, are included. The 'Change Log' is, as always, in the Notes section below.

    17. SF2 TMF Mirage IIIEE (EDA) by Macelena Upgrade Pack (v.2)

      This is the variant of the Mirage IIIE employed by the Spanish Air Force. Includes all files needed to run it on SF2, along with loading screens,
      specific loadouts, and an ad hoc pilot model. Install dropping into your mods folder. In doubt, readme included also
       
      Thanks to Wildcat, Espektro and Mirage Factory. I would like to dedicate it to Bpao, recently deceased, the founder of Mirage Factory, but it would be strange
      since this was originally his job, so this is dedicated to the Spanish airmen killed aboard it
       
      Anything wrong with the release, plase contact me here
       
      Esta es la variante del Mirage IIIE empleada por el Ejército del Aire español. Incluye todo lo necesario para funcionar en SF2, así como fondos de pantalla de hangar
      y carga, configuracion de armao específica, y un piloto hecho expresamente. Instalar vertiendo sobre la carpa de mods. En caso de duda, incluye un Léame
       
      Gracias a Wildcat, Espektro y Mirage Factory. Me gustaria dedicarlo a la memoria de Bpao, recientemente fallecido, fundador de Mirage Factory, pero me resulta extraño
      dedicarle lo que originalmente fue su trabajo, así que dedicado a los aviadores españoles muertos abordo.

    21. 52nd Fighter Wing 1994

      52nd Fighter Wing 1994
      This mod brings together all of the aircraft of the 52nd Fightere Wing at Spangdahlem AB, Federal Republic of Germany in 1994. It features historic serials and skins for the era
          Included
      A-10A_93, F-16C/D_B50, F-15C/D_91 aircraft
      Sounds, effects and decals for all of the above
      Assorted Weapons
      Special Fuel Tanks to allow selection from different aircraft.
          Installation
      unzip, add contents of "2 Mod Folder" to the mod folder of your choice. allow overwrites
      NOTE ON SPECIAL TANKS AND MIXED FLIGHTS
      I HAVE SET UP A SERIES OF ROCKET/FUEL TANKS (MINUS THE ROCKETS) SO THAT FUEL TANKS OTHER THAN WHAT IS NATIVE TO THE AIRCRAFT CAN BE SELECTED, ALLOWING MIX FLIGHTS OF AIRCRAFT. THE TANKS FOR EACH AIRCRAFT IS IDENTIFIED BY A NUMBER AT FRONT (IE "370 GAL TANK") WHILE THE NON REGULAR ONES HAVE THE AIRCRAFT NAME IN FRONT (IE F-16 370 GAL TANK). THEY WILL APPEAR FOR THE MOST PART AT THE BOTTOM OF THE MENU SCROLL
      IF YOU CHOOSE TO DO THIS, IT IS HIGHLY RECCOMENDED THAT YOU SELECT THE F-16C, THEN CHANGE TO THE F-15 OR A-10 IN THE LOADOUT MENU SCREEN ( flightname 1-1 IF YOU WANT TO CHANGE THE LEAD). THIS WILL ALLOW YOU TO USE ALL AVAILABLE WEAPONS, AS THE F-16 CAN CARRY ANYTHING THE A-10 OR F-15 CAN.

    22. IAR 80/81 REDUX PACK

      IAR 80/81 PACK.
      I was not originally going to release this pack, as I was unsure of the reaction to a relativley unknown ( unfortunately ) Fighter. but after the relative success of the PZL's I uploaded last week, I though it would be nice to send these IAR's your way too. The IAR's were only ever used by the Romanians, and was in service until the early 50's so that in itself speaks volumes about this rather attractive aircraft. 
      Anyway, this is a slight rework of Pasko's IAR 80A and 81C, I have also included a <cough> alternative and completely "What if" IAR 80P I shall let you look and see at to what  THAT is all about !!! 
       
      So, the details, I have edited the original skins, and have reworked ALL the decals, I have added the stencilling as accurately as I could, but there maybe a few errors here and there in the actual positioning of them, as finding detailed pictures of the type is just not there. The stencilling is very sparse, so I think I have got it mainly right ( I hope !! ) I have updated the sounds, and the weapons loadouts, as for some unknown reason, the original bomb loadouts were wrong, So the 80A now carries ONLY 2, 50Kg bombs under the wings, and the 81C has the centreline 250Kg and 2, 50Kg under wing bombs. The 80P however has the original loadout, because why not, it is a "What if" innit hehehehehe. The "real" IAR's in this pack carry German weapons, and are armed with for the 80A 6,  7.9mm FN Brownings, and the 81C has 2 MG151 20mm,s and only 2 of the FN Brownings . The 90P's are armed with ITALIAN bombs, 50, 100, and 250 KG's and gun armament  comprises of 4,  Breda SAFAT 7.7 mm MG's and a pair of Breda SAFAT 12.7mm MG's.
      All the markings have been replaced from the original ones, which I found too bright and "in yer face" and then I added on the differing markings from later years. 
      Everything is included in the pack, aircraft, decals, guns, pilots, weapons, and sounds. I have boxed everything up so it just a drag and drop kinda deal. One point though, please please PLEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEZE ensure that the  file  GunBarrel20mm is in the Pilots folder, or else you will end up with a very odd looking aircraft ( this is for the 81C. )  I also swapped out the Cockpit, as the faux Spitfire one looked awful, so it is now the YAK 9 one instead, not accurate, as all the dials are in Russian, but it does look better.............Well in my humble opinion it does at least. All the sounds I used are in the sounds folder, including the sounds for the guns. 
      That as they say, is a wrap.
       
      I forgot to credit Starfighter, for the Yak Cockpit, apologies to him for that ommision.
       
      AS ALWAYS...........................ENJOY !!!

    23. SF2 TMF Mirage IIIC (AdA) Upgrade/Remod Pack

      SF2 TMF Mirage IIIC (AdA) Upgrade/Remod Pack       2/21/2024
      -For SF2, Any and All-
      This is a full upgrade/remod pack for The Mirage Factory's Dassault Mirage 3C series as used by the French Air Force. Included in this package are 2 complete versions of the Mirage IIIC:
      Mirage IIIC ("standard" usage)
      1) NMF - EC 1/2 Cigones
      2) AdA Blue - EC 2/10 Seine (<1975)
      Mirage IIICi/SEPR (rocket boosted, single missile armed, no gun, interceptor)
      1) NMF only - EC 2/13 Alpes
      They are set up and labeled to cause NO conflicts with the Mirage III's available as stock within the game or as a DLC from 3rd Wire. Everything needed is supplied, excepting those weapons used that are stock 3W items. Skins remain in their original bmp format. Each skin has 26 letter and number decals, and Decal Randomization is TRUE. Almost all markings are decals. The SF2 date switch is used on the standard IIIC, changing to the Air Defense Blue in 1975. For the most part, the skins are left 'attached' to the squadrons from when originally released 'way back when.
      When in-game, on the Aircraft Selection Dropdown you'll see:
      Mirage IIIC (TMF)
      or
      Mirage IIIC/SEPR (TMF)
      So you can't mistake them for anything else but TMF Birds (tm).
      As always, fairly easy to follow, yet detailed install instructions are included. So, please read them. All original readmes, when discoverable, are included. The 'Change Log' is, as always, in the Notes section below.
      Happy Landings!

    24. Sentry '04: USAF E-3B/C's of the 552nd ACW and PACAF

                                          SENTRY '04:  USAF E-3B/C's of the 552nd ACW and PACAF
          Since 1976 the USAF has used the E-3 Sentry to control the air battlespace it finds itself in. Starting in 1995, the E-3 fleet began to recieve the Block 30/35 upgrade. These upgrades improved its communications, navigation, and electronic support equipment over the older versions. The most visible change was the ESM pods on the cheeks, and additional fairings on the chin and rear of the aircraft. These upgrades continued until the entire fleet was completed in fall of 2001.
         This mod represents the E-3B/C fleet at a time of major restructuring, with the 552nd Air Control Wing having reduced to 3 squadrons and the two PACAF squadrons (961st AACS at Kadena and 962nd AACS at Elmendorf) operating 3 of each.
                  Included
      This mod includes skin for the E-3B aircraft with fake pilot upgrades, skins and decals for all 5 squadrons active in 2004 as well as a 552nd ACW overall skin
                  Installation
      unzip mod, add contents of "2 Mod Folder" to mod folder of your choice. allow overwrites
                  Known Issues
      - The Sentry aircraft pull hard to port (left) when taking off. This only occurs when the player is hand flying the aircraft, when  AI or autopilot flies this is not an issue
      - The cockpit is not a great match for the aircraft, however SF2 does not support any of their (E-3 or CT-49) original missions as player flyable and they were originally intended to be eye candy. Until we get a 3d modeller that wants to do a new E-3 or even 707 proper pit, this is how it will be.
                  Credits

    25. [Fictional] McDonnell Douglas Phantom FGR.3

      McDonnell Douglas Phantom FGR.3 for STRIKE FIGHTERS 2 
      This is a simple mod of the stock Third Wire Phantom F-4E (early - short cannon muzzle fairing)  to create a fictional Phantom FGR.3 in service with the Royal Air Force in the 1969-1972 timeline with markings for No.6 and No.112 squadrons of RAF Middle East Command as they might have appeared during this period when deployed to Dhimar. Both squadrons have an association with the Middle East and Desert areas with No.6 Squadron being 'The Flying Tin Openers' whilst No.112 Squadron were famous for being the RAF's 'sharkmouth' squadron.  

      INSTRUCTIONS
      1. From the AIRCRAFT folder drag and drop the PhantomFGR3 folder into your Aircraft folder.
      2. From the DECALS folder drag and drop the PhantomFGR3 folder into your Decals folder.
      That's it!

      CREDITS
      As always, thanks to Third Wire for a great little game/sim.
      Special thanks to sundowner for the F-4E templates.
      And, finally, thanks to everyone in the wider Third Wire community.
      Regards 
      Spinners
      Version 2 - February 29th, 2024.
