    3. CF-151 (Rafale) * What-If

      Complete aircraft based on JAT81500 terrific Export Rafale Pack v1.0 :
       
       
      Fictional Royal Canadian Air Force Rafale Mod for SFP V2 (CF-151)
      This addon represent the folowing versions of the Rafale :
      - Canada (F3+ version) 
      *** Same version as India ***
      Rafale EH
      Changed the roundel on the skins and the decals on this pack are  made by me.
      Background :
      As the original Lockheed Martin F-35 Lighting II Canadian Procurement have been froze by the Liberal government after their 2011 election. It's been long speculated which fighter would replace the aging CF-188's of the RCAF. In 2017, the Liberal government announced the 18 Boeing Super Hornet would be bought as interim aircraft to fill the holes of the current Fleet of CF-188's so operational status can be maintained at 100%. As the tender for the replacement still went on, many manufacturers when on the line to win the replacement aircraft contract.
      In the year 2017, Boeing sued Bombardier (Canadian Aerospace Company) over a dispute on aircraft sales (CS-100's below cost) to Delta Airline. Many actors in Canada, USA and even Britain went to defend the Canadian Company that their was nothing wrong by doing so as Boeing did it in the pas itself (like Air Canada Boeing 787). The response by the Canadian Government was to initially re-think the 18 Super Hornet's order. On septembre 25th, the US court stated the Bombardier was at fault and a double 80% sale tax was then charged on every CS-100 sale to the US market. The Canadian response was immediate with cancellation of the Super Hornet buying. 
      On september 26th, the Liberal's announced that a new fighter have been chosen for the RCAF. The secret have been well kept in the RCAF and government ranks. The announced was the cancellation of the F-35 Lightning II procurement and the buying of 72 Rafale C (same as EH model of the India Air Force) with armament, support and maintenance for a life span of 30 years. The Rafale C under the RCAF would be called CF-151 Rafale-C and would equipped the 6 Tactical Fighter Squadrons (401, 409, 410, 416, 425 and 433).
      The 12 first planes (serials 151101 to 151112) were delivered as early of 2018 to the 410 Cougars for training and transition of the CF-18 pilots.  Then the other squadrons received their 12 planes each in late 2018- early 2019 time line.
      Here is the 12 serials per squadrons :
      410 Cougars        151101 - 151112
      425 Alouette        151113 - 151124
      433 Porc-Épic        151125 - 151136
      409 NightHawk        151137 - 151148
      416 Lynx        151149 - 151160
      401 Ram            151161 - 151172

      C-130 pack for SF2
       
      ______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
      Based on the C-130 Superpack made by Dels.
       
      Original Dels plane can be found here : http://combatace.com/files/file/16427-c-130-hercules-superpack/

      These skins represent the scheme used by the RCAF on their CC-130's E, H en J models.
       
      The serial numbers in this skin pack along with planes numbers are real one's. Only exception on 2 serials on the ''H'' models. In this pack, serials 130343 and 130344 are as ''H'' model but it was in fact a ''H-30'' variant.

      4 Wing, 436 Transport Squadron :

      sequential number in your file:
       
      [squadronXXX]
      Name=436SQN
      DisplayName=4 Wing, 436 Squadron
      Nation=Canada
       
       
       
       
       
      Two installation choice :

    5. Marcfighters Su-27 Re-Worked

      This is an improvment for Marcelo's Sukhoi Su-27 Flanker B with original Air-to-Ground capabilities that came from the original T-10 prototype.
      Weapons and sounds included.
       
      My very thanks to Yeyeye for the cockpit, Marcfighters for the original model and all other moders of combat ace for the skins, sounds and weapons.
      .INI's editions by me.
       
      This is a freewere add-on and its under combat ace coprights
       
      I'm also working on the Su-27P the interceptor / air superiority version who came from the T-10 prototype, but it can take some time due to the political instability here in South America, I'm an activist too.
       
      Hope you all enjoy.

    6. CT-155 Hawk

      CT-155 Hawk for SF2
       

      ______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
      Entirely based on BAe Hawk T.1A Update Pak made by Wrench that can be found here :
       
      http://combatace.com/files/file/12717-bae-hawk-t1a-for-sf2-by-russouk/
      ______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
       
      This is the CT-155 Hawk as used by the RCAF 15th Wing for the SF2 series of games.
       
      I added rivets and did the skin for the CT-155 Hawks (RCAF) currently used by the NATO Training Center.
       
      You may use the skin files only or use it as an entire aircraft.
       
      Did not tested it on others Hawks. So it might work or not.
       
      ______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
      The CT-155 Hawk was selected for the NATO Flying Training in Canada (NFTC) program because of its similarities to frontline fighter aircraft. Student pilots graduate from the CT-156 Harvard II to this highly advanced jet trainer. Its Rolls-Royce turbofan engine generates more than 6000lbs of thrust and powers the jet to supersonic speeds.
       
      The Hawk’s sophisticated glass cockpit features:
       
      a heads-up display (HUD)
      hands-on throttle and stick (HOTAS) controls
      integrated navigation and targeting systems
      With its superior technology, the jet can perform a wide range of high performance training missions.
       
      NFTC students train on the Hawk during the program’s final stage. Once they’ve logged 125 flight hours, Canada’s student fighter pilots are ready to join 410 Squadron, the Operation Training Unit, which flies CF-188 Hornets.
       
      Canada is not alone in selecting this modern trainer. Fifteen countries, including the British Royal Air Force rely on the Hawk to prepare their pilots for combat. The United States Navy uses its own version—the T-45A Goshawk—as an advanced trainer for carrier operations.
      ______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
       
       
       
      This skin represent the scheme used by the RCAF on their CT-155 trainers.

      You will get the following skins in this package :
       
      NATO Training Center (4 Wing Cold Lake) :

    7. Tornadoes Package

      I used ianh755's updated V4.0 version of Dave & Sundowners original Tornado GR1 & GR4 series and F3 cockpit.
      All included models are optimized for

      1st, the most important thing.
      If you want to enjoy low level flying, you must change missioncontrol.ini file !
       
      BACKUP ORIGINAL VALUES !!!
       
      Then use our missioncontrol, that you can find as archive in our pack.
       
      =======================================================================================
      Patch 2.3 b
      --------------
      We promise this is last patch for GR.1 ;-))
      Now we are going for GR.4 .
      We corrected:
       
      1) some bugs in cockpit
      2) HUD (it's reworked to look more like real Tornado, thx to Fanatic Modder documentation)
      3) AI attacks for british planes
      4) removed Lightening pod from BL755 loadout for german ECR
       
      we added:
      1) open canopy animation for cockpit view (thx ravenclaw for 3d lessons)
      PRESS -> SHIFT + 3 to see animation.
      2) missed oil pressure indicators
       

      Patch 2.3 a
      --------------
       
      We corrected:
       
      1) Problem with wing tip vortex
      2) Rudder secondary input
      3) Landing speed
      4) SPILS system settings
      5) Fuel quantity for Saudi GR.1
      6) Engines altitude power tables.
      7) missing outer wing weapon stations for GR.1 82
      8) ECM for brit and saudi planes moved back to pods from fuselage.
       
      we added:
      1) New Sky Shadow 3d model
       
      We also did some small lift for steering sensitivity.
       
      =======================================================================================
      Fanatic Modder's and Guuruu's Tornado GR.1 version 2.3
      -------------------------------------------------------------------------
       
      So,
       
      This is really serious upgrade .
      Only Tornado GR.1, IDS and ECR are in this pack.
       
      What is new ?
      -------------------
       
      We tried to get flight model as close to real Tornado as possible, so aerodynamic model
      is new .
      All planes have correct (reworked) engines, wing-sweep positions, max G for turning and
      new cockpits (with lots of working lights).
      We tested their acceleration, fuel consumption (it's still not perfect but better it was),
      turning and climb rate.
      We also added correct skin for Italian IDS 81 .
      Weapons are no longer separate download, also missioncontrol.ini is inside of pack.
       
      We decided to remove GR.4 from this files. She is far from finish and will be published
      as separate files.
       
      You will find 11 planes in this pack:
       
      RAF:
      -----
      GR1 82 Early production
      GR1 90 Better engines, more weapons than 82 model (in fact it is GR.1B with Sea Eagles)
      I thought there is no sense to create same plane with only +Sea Eagles.
      GR1 90 DESERT STORM Simply GR1 90 with desert camo (plane and weapons)
      GR1A Recon version of GR1 90
       
      Luftwaffe:
      ------------
      GERMAN ECR HARM armed Tornado with Mk.105 engines
      GERMAN IDS 79 similar to GR1 82
      GERMAN Marineflieger IDS (with Kormorans and HARMs)
      GERMAN IDS 06 which is continuation of Marine IDS after they were transferd to Luftwaffe.
       
      Italians:
      ---------
      ITALIAN ECR as german ECR but Italians didn't replace engines for Mk.105 and they use GPS JDAMS
      ITALIAN IDS 81 very close to german IDS, can use JP233 insteed MW1
       
      Saudi Arabia:
      -----------------
      SAUDI GR1 93 similar to british GR1 90
       
      SKINS:
      --------
      Every plane has only 1 skin.
       
      INSTALLATION:
      --------------------
      We higly recommend to remove/backup all earlier versions of OUR(!) GR.1 or ECR Tornadoes.
      Then unpack this download and copy/paste (overwrite if needed) all files to your
      MODS folder .

    9. TMF F-14 Tomcat Super Pack v1.32

      The Mirage Factory F-14 Tomcat Super Pack V1.32 22 APR, 2017
       
      What it is:
      This is the F-14 Tomcat Super Pack v1.32 Full. It includes addition of Direct Lift Control to the Flight Model, AI AIM-54 Phoenix Missiles, modified Iranian F-14 loadouts and other minor adjustments.
       
      =================
       
      Installation:
       
      =====CAUTION=====
      1. This was tested at July 2013 patch level, on an "All 5 Merged" install, as well as a "vanilla" SF2:NA install. Because it uses AvionicsF14A.dll, will require at least SF2:NA (or a TW F-14) to work! It will not work on Gen 1 sims, nor will it work correctly on pre-April 2012 installs! (Caveat: Avionics70.dll F-14D should work on pre-April patch levels).
       
      2. It is HIGHLY recommended you back up your current F-14s to a back up folder. If you have extra skins installed and wish to keep your current folders, be ABSOLUTELY CERTAIN to delete the cockpit folders from each aircraft folder after backing up, as this install features updated cockpits, and retention of the old folders will lead to artifacting on the RWR, VDI, and other systems. If you have custom skins installed, be sure to back up your F-14(A/A+/B/D).ini to preserve the texture set data.
      =================
       
      1. Unzip the contents of the F-14SP_V132.7z file into a folder.
       
      1a. If you have installed the Avionics70 F-14D, ensure you back up the .ini files if you haven't renamed the bird, since this install will overwrite F-14D_92, 96 and 06!
       
      2. Open your Strike Fighters 2 mod folder (e.g., C:\User\Saved Games\ThirdWire\StrikeFighters2 Europe\...)
       
      3. CAUTION: (ONLY FOR PRE-v1.30 VERSIONS), DELETE THE PRE-1.30 COCKPIT FOLDERS!!! FAILURE TO DO SO WILL CAUSE ARTIFACTING ON THE VDI, HSD, RWR, AND POSSIBLY OTHER SYSTEMS!!!
       
      3.a. IGNORE STEP 3 IF YOU ARE UPDATING v1.30 OR v1.31

      Updated

    10. Updated Boeing 757-200

      Updated 757-200 for SF2
       
      This is an update of YEYEYEs SF1 release for use in SF2. I have applied my usual technique to incorporate multiple airlines on one skin per era, with 4 eras from release in the
      mid 1980s through the mid 1990s. More may become available later but templates are included for those that don't want to wait on me.
       
      Installation
      unzip, open folder titled "Mod Folder" and allow overwrites.
      IF YOU HAVE A PREVIOUSLY MODDED FOLDER
      1. delete flight and terrains from "Mod Folder". 2 open the "Specials Folder", insert the nations txt file into your Nations.ini and the terrain txt file into your
      (whatever)Nations.ini in the needed terrain folder.
      templates to wherever you keep files for modding, or delete if you do not desire to mod it
       
      Known Issues
      - It is a bit slow on the pickup. while it can take off from a smaller airbase, best to stick to larger fields
      - It features the same pit as the 767 and other airliners. we do not have an in house pit that is more appropriate at the moment and so most airliners are stuck looking like generic WWII
      bomber pits
      - It has a seam on the bottom of the model that is very pronounced given the decal based marking system i use. however this should not be to noticeable unless you approach it from below.
      When parked on the ground or viewed from the side or above the seam is not noticeable.
      - for all above faults, remember: it is meant as eye candy, not an operational bird! enjoy taking off from Keflavik or Rhein Main and seeing many airlines parked on one ramp

    11. CF-105

      Entirely based on the CF-105 made by FastCargo that can be found here :
      http://combatace.com/files/file/13267-avro-arrow-cf-105-mark-ii/
       
      I did the panel lines and rivets and did the skin for all 6 aircrafts (initial schemes plus RL-203 extended lines on wings).
       
      You may use the skin files only or use it as an entire aircraft.
       
      No decals as they were pre-production birds so everything is put on the skin itself.
       
      All congrats shall go to FastCargo for putting up a great plane like this and the one's who helped him to make it a reality!

    13. F-14A Tomcat over Iran. SF2.

      This is F-14A Tomcat as after 1979 in Islamic Republic of Iran Air Force.
      This is based on Thirdwire DLC 027. So if you dont have this pack you can't use this mod.
       
      Whats in.
      This is basicly the skin and decals set For F-14A_Iran from DLC027.
      Skin is based on pappychksix templates
       
      All decals are made by me and set to randomization=TRUE.
      Ive put only 72 serial numbers into 3 squadrons that operated F-14A in 79-80.
      Al numbers are historicaly correct, but only few are proper for specific unit.
      During Iran-Iraq war lot aircrafts were transfered from unit to unit or temporary written off so its hard to track proper aircraft placement in units.
      few aircrafts were also serving in testing units. So total aircrafts in service in 1979 was probably around 70.
       
      No weapons / pilots added. It will work with latest ravenclaw weapons for sure.
       
      There is optional folder with INI files. Its is mix of inis based on TMF F-14 pack.
      And also pit is from TMF pack.
      So all credit to them for their work.

      -------------------------------------------------------------
       
      NOTE: It is recommended that you remove any previous version of this pack, older than v1.05, before installing this version. In other words, follow the "Installation" section of this read me file to delete the previous F-15 folders.
       
      This is a full stand-alone pack, no other mod packs are required. This pack is a REPLACEMENT and NOT an upgrade for FastCargo's F-15 Super Pack.
       
      This package contains higher resolution but smaller (space size wise) jpeg skin files. If you over write this mod over Fastcargo's F-15 Super Pack, you will never see the new skins, if you over write Fastcargo's F-15 Super Pack over this mod, you will lose all the latest cahnges to the flight model, weapons loadout and...pretty much everything else in this pack.
       
      Please refer to the Installation section if you have or want to install FastCargo's F-15 Super Pack along with this pack.

    20. SF2 F-15 GAF Eagle Pack Redux 2016 (Fictional)

      SF2 F-15 GAF Eagle Pack Redux 2016 (Fictional) - The Mudhen Team - 2016\07\19
       
      -------------------------------------------------------------
       
      This pack is an add-on for the F-15 Eagle Super Pack. However, it is a full stand-alone pack, no other mod packs are required.
       
      What if West Germany replaced their aging F-4s with F-15s!? I was inspired by Ravenclaw's F-14F ICE Phantoms to build this pack. Infact, I used his squadron info and some of the decals for this pack.
       
      If you are interested in other Mudhen Team F-15 Eagles, you can find them in the following links...

    21. SF2 F-22A USAF Raptors Redux 2016

      SF2 F-22A USAF Raptors Redux 2016
      by Viper63a
       
      -------------------------------------------------------------
       
      The default install of this mod pack requires SF2NA merged in your install. If you don't have SF2NA in your install base, you have to install the files in the "Non_SF2NA_Patch" folder for the avionics to function properly. See installation section for more details.
       
      -------------------------------------------------------------
       
      This is my iteration/update of the F-22A Raptors originally released by the "Raptor Team". The lion's share of the work was done by the "Raptor Team" - so I DO NOT take credit for ANY of their wonderful work. What I did was upgrade the original package with various other packages released over the years (All noted in the credits). Other than that, I've recreated and tweaked the skins to my liking, added some new squadrons, and created all new decals for the planes. Comes complete with new Hangar, Loading and Loadout files as well. The original package can be downloaded with the following and/or the links in the Credits sections...
       
      -------------------------------------------------------------
      What's included in this mod pack?
      -------------------------------------------------------------
       
      Included in this package are the 7th, 14th, 22nd, 27th, 36th, 43rd, 80th, 90th, 94th, 95th, 199th, 411th, 422nd, 433rd, 493rd, and 525th USAF F-22 Squadrons. All squadrons have the complete compliment of tail numbers. Some F-22s were re-deployed from Virginia and Hawaii to Europe (Germany/England) and Asia (Korea) as a deterrence (preparation) force for the current tension in the regions.
       
      Additional Skins for this pack is available here...

      My StrikeFighter2 mod on Win97 64-bit was..(yours may be different)...
       
      C:\Users\<your_id>\Saved Games\Thirdwire\StrikeFighter2...
       
      * If you have a merged SF2NA installed, then you are done...If not, you have one more step...
       
      Open the "\Optional\Non_SF2NA_Patch" folder and copy the contents of the "To_Mod_Folder" folder to your StrikeFighter2 mod folder and Overwrite as required.
       
      * Lastly, please read the "F-22A SoundList Add.txt" to install the sound files.
       
      Now you are done...
       
      Enjoy!
       
      -------------------------------------------------------------
       
      NOTE: The NON-JHMCS Pilot is the default in this pack. If you want to use the JHMCS Pilot, please update the [Pilot] section of the "F-22A_DATA.ini" file. Remove the "//" from the "PilotModelName=F22A_JHMCS" line and add "//" to the "PilotModelName=F22A_Pilot" line. And Save...

    23. SF2 F-22A USAF Raptors Redux 2016 - More Skins and Squadrons

      SF2 F-22A USAF Raptors Redux 2016 - More Skins and Squadrons
      by Viper63a
       
      More F-22 skins and squadrons for the "SF2 F-22A USAF Raptors Redux 2016 Version 2.5" package. Blaze got me thinking about some of the old Raptors from the golden days of flight sim, so I brought some of those "What if" Raptors to SF2 levels!
       
      You will need the original main pack for these skins to work. You can get that with the following link...
       
      http://combatace.com/files/file/15909-sf2-f-22a-usaf-raptors-redux-v3/
       
      Included in this package are the 14th SEA, 22nd Desert, 80th SEA, 433rd Various/Black, 493rd Desert and etc... All squadrons have their complete compliment of decals for their "What If" scenarios. These are considered to be "Show Birds" or Mercenary jets deployed into the USAF mix of some future conflict. There are some other Raptors from Nellis and one special Raptor for Paris.
       
      As always, I recommend that you back up your mod folder before you install any new mod...just in case.
       
      * To install, simply unzip and copy the contents of the "To_Mod_Folder" folder to your StrikeFighter2 mod folder and Overwrite (if needed).
       
      My StrikeFighter2 mod on Win97 64-bit was..(yours may be different)...
       
      C:\Users\<your_id>\Saved Games\Thirdwire\StrikeFighter2...
       
      That's it, Enjoy!

    24. F-16E/F Block 60 REDUX

      F-16E and E Block 60 Desert Falcon's redone!
      I uploaded a older E/F pack that was pretty awful to be honest here is a much better redo!
      Made using the Block 50/52 models now to make it look better in general as well as some updates to the skin!
       
      Built using the Greek and Turkish F-16's as a base so if you have those the E/F should work just fine! You should already have all the weapons and sounds from earlier F-16 packs! Happy Hunting in the Gulf!
       
      Thank you to the Viper Team and everyone else who has worked on the SF2 vipers or this would never have been possible!

      History
       
      Since the early nineties, the Italian Air Force has eagerly been seeking a replacement for its vintage Aeritalia F-104S Starfighters. Its intended replacement is the Eurofighter Typhoon. Since this program has been running behind schedule for a few years, the Italian air force needed a stop-gap solution. Because the AMI possesses a vast number of Tornado IDS planes, they decided to lease 24 Tornado ADV fighters from the RAF for a 10-year period. This lease ended in 2003 so a replacement was sought. At first the AMI opted to extend the lease period with another 10 years. This proved to be too expensive, so the Italian government turned to the US. The requirement was for a fighter that could perform the air defense mission for 5 to 10 years, until the arrival of the Typhoon.
       
      Inventory
       
      Peace Caesar
       
      On March 15th, 2001 the Italian government signed an LoA for a 5-year lease (with an option on another 5 years) of 34 F-16s and four spare airframes, in a deal worth up to $777 million over a 10-year period. The aircraft were delivered between July 2003 and November 2004. In total, 30 F-16A ADFs as well as 1 F-16B ADF and 3 F-16B block 5 & 10's will be delivered. Four more planes will be provided for use as spare parts.
       
      Before delivery to Italy, the aircraft are brought out of storage at Davis-Monthan AFB, Ariz. and transfered to the Ogden ALC at Hill AFB, Utah, where they undergo 220 days of refurbishment and upgrades.
       
      The Falcons are given a complete refurbishment, which complied with all technical compliance-technical orders that have changed since the aircraft was placed in stasis in Arizona. The depot teams at Hill AFB did structural modifications including Falcon-Up, which replaces particular bulkheads and the structural life improvement program, which strengthens holes around the fuel cell panels and wheel wells by compressing the molecules with 30,000 pounds of pressure. The wings were removed and the bulkhead furthest aft that holds the vertical wing was replaced. The landing gear was refurbished and its bulkhead was also replaced.
       
      The flight controls actuators are replaced with new actuators. In addition the computers and instruments that provide the Falcon its technological edge are removed, sent to the appropriate facilities to be tested then repaired if necessary. All equipment that is a time change item and that has less than a full year's worth of service left is changed.
       
      Approximately 100 Italian Air Force maintenance officers, instructors and technicians are receiving F-16 maintenance training at Lockheed Martin facilities in Fort Worth, Texas.
       
      End of service
       
      On May 23rd, 2012 a disbanding ceremony was held at Trapani-Birgi AFB to mark the disbandment of the resident 18 Gruppo, which was the sole surviving F-16 squadron within the AMI. This marked to end of the service life of the F-16 within the Italian Air Force. This means the AMI is the first air force to fly with the F-16 that phases out the type.
       
      Modifications & Armament
       
      The planes provided to Italy have a standard ADF configuration. All aircraft receive the uprated Pratt & Whitney F100-220E engine and undergo the Falcon-Up structural enhancement program. It is confirmed that a number of weapon systems will be released to the AMI to be used in conjunction with the F-16s, including the AIM-120 AMRAAM missile,
