    2. A6M2-N "Rufe" Floatplane Fighter

      A6M-2N "Rufe" WW2 IJN Floatplane fighter
       
      For SF/Wo* or SF2 --
       
      Please note, this aircraft is not fully SF2 compliant! The package, with the exception of the included destroyed model, and SF2-ized 'weapon' (ie: the floats) will need to be converted by YOU -the End User- for SF2 compatibility. The data ini has the added lines for the included destroyed model. It shouldn't change anything for SF/Wo*, except it not showing up after you shoot it down.
       
      It also is in DIRE need of a corrected/Updated 08 and/or SF2 level Flight Model. This mod is released "as is" (meaning as it was in 08). Adjustments/tweeks are encouraged!
       
      The readme included, is in it's original 2008 state. Seperate instructions are included for adding the destroyed model, for SF2 usage
       
      *Note: it will NOT take off or land on water (the game has never supported this), but from land bases. For some reason, the "invisible airfield" as used on several WW2 terrains is NOT working in SF2. BE ADVISED!!*
       
      -----------------
      This is a modification to ArmourDave's A6M2 "Zero" fighter, converting it into the float-plane version as built by Nakajima for the Imperial Japanese Navy. Historically, probably the most successful floatplane fighter ever produced.
       
      There are 2 complete versions of the Rufe included in this package:
       
      1) A6M2-N_Early: this has the light gray skin as used in mid-to-late 1942. This aircraft contains 2 new skins (created from a new template, based off the original skins as seen on some other Zero mods of mine); 11 Kokutai, based aboard the seplane tender 'Kamikawa Maru' in the northern Solomons circa July-August 1942, and 14 Kokutai, also based in the Solomons area. circa 1942 (actually the Shortland Islands, but who's counting?)
       
      2) A6M2-N: this aircraft has the later (ie: early 1943 on) green overall camo. This aircraft ALSO contains 2 new skins (as above); 802 Kokutai based at Jaluit, Marshall Islands circa August 1943; and 902 Kokutai as seen in November, 1943 based at Truk.
       
      Happy Landings!

      Avia B-71 plane for Strike Fighters 2 by ThirdWire
       
      B-71 was license build Tupolev SB-2 used by czechoslovakia
       
      unfortunately it came too late
       
      Czechoslovakian Air Force received 60 Russian-built SB with Hispano Suiza 12Ybrs engines in April and May 1938. Another 101 bombers and 60 reconnaissance aircraft were license-built Avia B-71 but only 101 were built.

      Cockpit used in this package is build by Stary and it is not 100% correct for this plane
       
      but close enough. Thank you Stary

    10. Avro Lancaster MK1 V2K

      The Avro Lancaster is a British four-engined Second World War heavy bomber designed and built by Avro for the Royal Air Force (RAF). It first saw active service with RAF Bomber Command in 1942 and, as the strategic bombing offensive over Europe gathered momentum, it became the main heavy bomber used by the RAF, the RCAF, and squadrons from other Commonwealth and European countries serving within the RAF, overshadowing its close contemporaries the Handley Page Halifax and Short Stirling.The "Lanc", as it was affectionately known,thus became the most famous and most successful of the Second World War night bombers, "delivering 608,612 long tons of bombs in 156,000 sorties."

      Consolidated B-24 Liberator
       
      The Consolidated B-24 Liberator was an American heavy bomber, designed by Consolidated Aircraft of San Diego, California. It was known within the company as the Model 32, and a small number of early models were sold under the name LB-30, for Land Bomber.

    13. B-24J Liberator (Pasko), Indian Air Force, Ver.2

      Consolidated B-24J, Indian Air Force ver.2
       
      For SF2, Full-5 Merged (with Expansion Pak 1 Reccomended, for bombs)
       
      This is Version 2.0 of Pasko's B-24J "Liberator", to recreate those as rebuilt for use by the Indian Air Force.
      Designed for use with in India/Pakistan stand-alone install.
       
      This version is designed to REPLACE the version originally released in 2011 for the Indo-Pak mod.
       
      A brand new skin, in jpg format, from my (finally!) completed Home Grown template ™.
      The decals are 100% historically accurate for the serial numbers. Decal randomization is set to TRUE.
      Flight model, while somewhat tweeked by me is "OK", for a heavy bomber. However it NEEDS to be completly gone through by an FM Guru, as there are many 'issues'. It is NOT advised that is be used by the player, but to let the AI control it.
       
      Some data ini tweeks remove some of the guns, and the lower ball turret, and convert it to a surface-search radar dome (ASV), via the FakePilot method. A new avionics ini is included. Be advised, there is NO radar display in the cockpit .. in Real Life ™ this would have been (probably) in the radio compartment, aft of the bomb bays. All lighting positions have been corrected, and where necessary, new ones added to their proper places.
      The weapons loadout makes use of the stock, Expansion Pak 1 M57 & M64 WW2 era bombs.
       
      As always, fairly easy to follow, yet detailed install instructions are included. So, please read them .... Of course, the expected "Notes" section with comments, suggestions, and whatnots. Be in one's own best interest to read them.
       
      Happy Landings!

    14. Bell P-39 D Airacobra

      The Bell P-39 Airacobra was one of the principal American fighter aircraft in service when the United States entered World War II. The P-39 was used with great success by the Soviet Air Force, which scored the highest number of individual kills attributed to any U.S. fighter type. Other major users of the type included the Free French, the Royal Air Force, the United States Army Air Forces, and the Italian Co-Belligerent Air Force.
      Designed by Bell Aircraft, it had an innovative layout, with the engine installed in the center fuselage, behind the pilot, and driving a tractor propeller via a long shaft. It was also the first fighter fitted with a tricycle undercarriage.Although its mid-engine placement was innovative, the P-39 design was handicapped by the absence of an efficient turbo-supercharger, limiting it to low-altitude work. Together with the derivative P-63 Kingcobra, the P-39 was one of the most successful fixed-wing aircraft manufactured by Bell.

    18. Bf109g-10 JG 11 'Kanonenboot'

      Bf109g-10/U4, I./JG 11, Germany, Early 1945.
       
      By this date, JG 11 was equipped essentially with Bf109g-10 and g-14 aircraft.The yellow JG 11 Reich Defence fuselage band should not be confused with the narrower Eastern Front markings. THe yellow rudder should theoretically be accompanied by a yellow band around the nose - the final type of quick recognition markings introduced in early 1945. Needless to say, by this stage, official directives were not always scrupulously respected!
       
      Despite the fact that MG151/20 gondolas were rarely if ever fitted to g-10 type 109s, this aircraft has them fitted as standard for all air defence missions.

      By this date, JG 53 was equipped essentially with Bf109g-10 and k-4 aircraft, and had been absorbed completely into the Reich Defence organisation. The black fuselage band was attributed on 20/02/1945 in replacement of the earlier rust-red one.

      Bf109g-10/U4, 2./JG 300, Borkheide, September 1944.
       
      JG 300 was originally created in July 1943 as a Wilde Sau free-range night-fighter Geschwader, but owing to the high accident rate and the relative lack of success, was
      transferred at the very beginning of 1944 to daylight operations.

    21. Bf109g-6/AS, JG1, Spring 1944

      Bf109g-6AS, JG 1, Germany, Early 1945.
       
      In April 1944, JG 1 became the first unit to be equipped with the new Bf109g-5/AS and -6/AS with its uprated DB605AS engine. This entailed the introduction of a new streamlined cowling, compared to the original bulged model used on standard G-5 and G-6 aircraft. As the AS series were intended for high altitude operations, the initial production run were finished in overall RLM 76 pale blue-grey.
       
      Jagdgeschwader 1 was based in Northern Germany on Reich Defence duties (Stab was based at Paderborn) and was commanded at this time by Oberstleutnant Walter 'Gulle' Oesau, whose Green 13 is included in this pack. He was killed on 11th May 1944 over St Vith by P-38s of the USAAF.
       
      You will need the AvHistory Guns pack installed.

      The Bloch MB.130 and its derivatives were a series of French monoplane reconnaissance-bombers developed during the 1930s. They saw some limited action at the beginning of World War II but were obsolete by that time and suffered badly against the Luftwaffe. After the fall of France, a few were pressed into Luftwaffe service.

    23. Blohm & Voss BV 141

      The Blohm & Voss BV 141 was a World War II German tactical reconnaissance aircraft. It is notable for its uncommon structural asymmetry. Although the Blohm & Voss BV 141 performed well, it was never ordered into full-scale production, for reasons that included the unavailability of the preferred engine and competition from another tactical reconnaissance aircraft, the Focke-Wulf Fw 189.

    24. C-47/Dakota/R4D

      Pack of C-47/Dakota/R4D for WW2 mods. Most skins by me. Decals are again, mostly by me.
      NO cockpit, sorry!
      Thanks to Thirdwire for the original C-47 3-D model.
      Have fun!

    25. C-60 Lodestar

      SF2 WW2 C-60 Lodestar by Veltro2K        9/15/2014
       -- Something for the WW2 players --
      = For SF2 ONLY, Full-5 Merged (Reccomended/Preferred) =
      **Note: This mod will -NOT- work in 1stGen game installs at any patch level.A Full-5 merged is reccomended.**
      This is a the release of Veltro2K's =NEW= Lockheed/Vega Model 18 Lodestar transport/light cargo aircraft. This represents the C-57 type as used by US airline companies, impressed into military service, and new build C-60s. In reality, this was the first of the type, the Ventura and later the Harpoon being evolutions of this airframe.
      There are 2 skin/decals set(s) in the package:
      AAF (early 42-43, star-and-ball (withOUT red center) )
      AAF43 (star-&-bar)
      both are in standard USAAF OD/NG
      and
      NM (a natural metal finsh for late war, or civilian users)
      The OD skins use the SF2 "date switch", and will change in approx September, 1943. The NM skin is only selectable via the usual drop-down on the Loadout Screen.
      All markings are decals, and Decal Randomization is TRUE. Serial number are accurate for the model depicted, but should be considered 'generic' in nature, as they reprsent no specific unit. 
      Engine sounds, pilot figures are included, but there is NO Hangar Screen, as transports really don't have anything to do in the SF/SF2 series. Operational service dates are rounded to 'whole months', and ARE relatively correct for ALL in-theatre usages.
      Like the Venturas, the cabin door is operated by the Standard Animation Keystroke (tm), Shift/0. It is also set for the parked animation, so as to be Open when sitting on the ramp.
      When in game, you'll see
      C-60 Lodestar (v2k)
      on the Aircraft Selection Drop down menu. As different versions are planned, this will help keep them diferentiated, so to speak.
      As always, fairly easy to follow, yet detailed install instructions are included. PLEASE read them!!!  Give the Notes section a read, too!
      Happy Landings!!
