  1. P-40T Twin WarHawk

    There’s no record of a twin P-40 ever having been made and the only evidence is a few Pics found on the internet. There were a few variations on the design, so I took a bit from them and add lib'd a few of my own.

  2. Douglas A-1G Skyraider Deutsche Luftwaffe

    Douglas A-1G Skyraider Deutsche Luftwaffe for STRIKE FIGHTERS 2
    Fictional mod of the stock A-1H Skyraider to create a fictional attacker aircraft for the west german air forces.
    Since it's not stock flyable, it uses an aliased A-4C cockpit. Afitting pit is available here at CA.
    In the skin folder "LeKG41", there is a file called "A-1H_TAIL_alt.jpg" which can be used renaming it properly (backup the other if wanted) to move the
    squadron badge from the tailto the front.
    INSTRUCTIONS
    1. Drop the folders into your Objects folder. If asked to overwrite, click yes.

    CREDITS
    Big Thanks to Thirdwire for the games and the superb models they have.
    Also to Nyghtfall for the reworked Skyraider templates from Wrench.

  4. SF2 Mirage 4000BA & BB - Belgian Air Force

    This aircraft mod represents Dassault's what-if Mirage 4000BA fighter and its trainer BB variant in the Belgian Air Force service. Since the company always created several variants of each type based on costumer requirement and evolution of technology, other national oriented types and variants will be uploaded as separate packages.
    This package comes with 1 skin set for each variant, with decals for BA (18 planes), and for BB (8 planes).
    This model is meant for SF2 games only, SF1 variants will be uploaded at the SF1 section.
    Install is the regular dropping the contents in their respective places. In case you have the prototype or French A and B variants you can skip the overwrite prompt of weapons as those 6 items are identical.
    Please note: The model can be quite heavy on FPS in large formations on weaker machines, so if required, either resize skin files or use lower lods(_nd,001,002,003) as lod1.
    The model uses the general french and NATO weapons, either as part of weapon packs or the Mirage 2000 family.
    Important: The BB variant comes with 2 types of cockpit, the basic setup will use a simple pit that has only the pilots cabin instrumented. The other is a fully modeled front and rear compartment, in which you want to fly you should activate the proper line in the AC's.ini file.
    CockpitDataFile=Mirage4000BB_Cockpit.ini <---- basic setup
    ;CockpitDataFile=Mirage4000BB_Cockpit_full1.ini <------ front seat
    ;CockpitDataFile=Mirage4000BB_Cockpit_full2.ini <------ rear seat
    Be aware - the piloting seat position can not be changed during/in game, so chose wisely!
    Make sure to read the manual included with the package.

  5. SF2 Mirage 4000A & B - French Air Force

    This aircraft mod represents Dassault's probable initial Mirage 4000A fighter and its trainer B variant in the French Air Force service. Since the company always created several variants of each type based on costumer requirement and evolution of technology, other national oriented types and variants will be uploaded as separate packages.
    This package comes with 3 skin sets for each variant, 3 squadron specific for A (18 planes), and 3 squadron sets for B (8 planes) and special Tiger Meet skin for a single AC.
    This model is meant for SF2 games only, SF1 variants will be uploaded at the SF1 section.
    Install is the regular dropping the contents in their respective places. In case you have the prototype variant you can skip the overwrite prompt of weapons as those 4 items are identical.
    Please note: The model can be quite heavy on FPS in large formations on weaker machines, so if required, either resize skin files or use lower lods(_nd,001,002,003) as lod1.
    The model uses the general french weapons, either as part of weapon packs or the Mirage 2000 family.

  7. [Fictional] Hawker Hunter F.6 'Red Arrows'

    Hawker Hunter F.6 ' Red Arrows' for STRIKE FIGHTERS 2 
    This is a simple mod of the stock Hawker Hunter F.6 to give my interpretation as to how it might have looked if the famous Red Arrows display team had flown it in the 1960's. I've kept it simple by using a Gnat-esque scheme but I've used white serial numbers instead of blue.

    INSTRUCTIONS
    1. From the AIRCRAFT folder drag and drop the HunterF6ra folder into your Aircraft folder.
    2. From the DECALS folder drag and drop the HunterF6ra folder into your Decals folder.
    That's it!
    BTW the mission editor can be used to select all 9 aircraft leaving you to get some formation screenshots taken!

    CREDITS
    As always, thanks to Third Wire for a great little game/sim.
    A big thank you to Sundowner for releasing his Hunter tempates to allow ham-fisted amateurs like me to get a bit creative.
    And, finally, thanks to everyone in the wider Third Wire community.

  8. [Fictional] Lockheed F-104C 'Getti Tonanti'

    Lockheed F-104C 'Getti Tonanti' for STRIKE FIGHTERS 2
    This is a very simple mod of the stock Third Wire F-104C to create a fictional F-104C of the famous 'Getti Tonanti' aerobatic display team of the Aeronautica Militare who performed at the opening ceremony of the 1960 Olympic Games in Rome. The real 'Getti Tontanti' flew F-84F's in 1960 so this is just my interpretation of how the Starfighter might have looked with those distinctive Olympic Rings coloured tails.
    If you haven't got the F-104C then I'm sure you can hack it to fit the F-104G by changing the skin bitmap names, etc.

    BACKSTORY
    Entering service in February 1958 with the 83rd Fighter Interceptor Squadron at Hamilton AFB, California the F-104A interceptor served only briefly with the USAF Air Defense Command but this was soon followed by the multi-role F-104C which entered service with USAF Tactical Air Command in September 1958 when the 479th Tactical Fighter Wing at George AFB, California began to re-equip with the type. Despite setting a new world altitude record of 103,395 ft (31,515 m) just a few months later in December 1958 the USAF sharply reduced their orders for the F-104 leading Lockheed to urgently seek export orders and they soon gained an export order from the Italian Government in January 1960 for 40 F-104C's for the Aeronautica Militare. 
    With Italy hosting the Olympic Games in the late summer of 1960, the Italian President Giovanni Gronchi personally asked the US President Dwight D. Eisenhower for the earliest possible delivery date as he wanted to use the F-104C's as part of the opening ceremony. Not only did 'Ike' graciously agree but he also authorised the immediate transfer of 10 F-104C's from USAF stocks which were airlifted to Europe during February and March being reassembled at Ramstein Air Base before being flown to Villafranca Air Base by USAF pilots and officially handed over to the 5th Aerobrigata of the Aeronautica Militare. The F-104C's replaced the F-84F Thunderstreaks of the 'Getti Tonanti' aerobatic display team and this elite unit performed a sensational display at both the opening and closing ceremonies of the Games of the XVII Olympiad held in Rome from August 25th to September 11th, 1960.

    INSTRUCTIONS
    1. From the AIRCRAFT folder drag and drop the F-104Cgt folder into your Aircraft folder.
    2. From the DECALS folder drag and drop the F-104Cgt folder into your main Decals folder.
    That's it! 
    BTW the mission editor can be used to select all 6 aircraft leaving you to get some formation screenshots taken!

  11. F-4E(F) Air Superiority Fighter (Luftwaffe)

    Proposed F-4E(F) Air Superiority Fighter (Luftwaffe) addon for the F-4F Pack by ravenclaw_007 and team.
     
    Based on the official McDonnell Douglas report/ sales pitch dated September 1970 detailing the specifications for the proposed F-4E(F) Air Superiority Fighter for the West German Luftwaffe: 
     
    Included:
    - F-4E(F)
     
    Gameplay notes:
    - Due to its lower empty weight this aircraft is slightly faster, more maneuverable, has quicker acceleration and a lower stalling speed than a standard statted or hard wing F-4E.
    - It has a slightly lower (according to McDonnell's specifications,) stalling speed than the F-4F.
    - The radar (APG-120) is the same model as on the F-8E Crusader so has a lower performance than the radar on the F-4E/F with no AIM-7 capability. Cockpit radar display and radar range lights have been changed match the APG-120 radar.
    - Rear cockpit is empty with no WSO or controls etc. If you read the McDonnell report the ability to fit the cockpit controls, displays and ejection seat was to be retained if required. So the glass would not have been faired over etc.
     
    Animation / Function
    - Canopy
    - Hook
    - Gun Vent ______________ automatic when gun is fired or as soon as the landing gear is deployed
    - Brake Chute____________ works with the Air Brake below 150kts

    NOTE:
    You MUST have the F-4F pack installed for this to work: 
     
    Hangar and Loading screens are in 1920 x 1080
     
    Installation:
    - Drop all files into your mod folder the way they are setup in this pack and overwrite if ask to
    - If you are unsure about the way how mods are installed, check the knowledge base at CombatAce!
     
    Credits for F-4F Pack:
    - original model by TW , BPAO , Crab_02
    - cockpits from TW
    - Testpilots , Fanatic Modder , Soulfreak , Crusader
    - new updated model , textures and weapons by ravenclaw_007

  15. [Fictional] Douglas A-4D Skyhawk 'USAF'

    Douglas A-4D Skyhawk 'USAF' for STRIKE FIGHTERS 2
    This is a very simple mod of the stock Third Wire A-4E to give a fictional USAF A-4D with markings for the 416th Tactical Fighter Squadron ('The Silver Knights') in 1967 although the service years are a more generous 1964 to 1985.

    BACKSTORY
    During the Spring of 1961 the incoming Secretary of Defence Robert S. McNamara left no stone unturned in his search for efficiencies in procurement and operational costs and his attention soon turned to the successful Douglas A4D 'Skyhawk' programme. Douglas had already transformed their 'bantam bomber' by replacing the Curtiss-Wright J65 engine with the Pratt & Whitney J52-P6A engine and the forthcoming A4D-5 (A-4E) version was chosen as the baseline for a minimum-change version for the USAF. Designated A-4D (after the introduction of the tri-service 
    designation system) the USAF Skyhawks saw extensive service at home and abroad and, in particular, served with distinction in Vietnam where they replaced a variety of tactical aircraft.

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

  16. [Fictional] North American F-100G Super Sabre

    North American F-100G for STRIKE FIGHTERS 2
    This is a very simple mod of the stock Third Wire F-100D to create a fictional F-100G for extended service with ANG units into the 1980's. Two units are included;
    The 125th TFS of the Oklahoma ANG.
    The 131st TFS of the Massachusetts ANG.
    Both units are dressed in a 'Euro One' style scheme on the upper surfaces only and with toned down national markings, codes and serials using late model F-100D serials. An additional stock T.O. 1-1-4 Camo skin for the 125th TFS is included in case they get deployed to Dhimar...

    BACKSTORY
    President James Earl 'Jimmy' Carter started his presidency in January 1977 with a detailed review of the US military budget and his most high-profile decision was the cancellation of the Rockwell B-1A bomber programme in June 1977. But many smaller programmes were cut or cancelled too along with the postponement of the re-equipping of TAC and ANG units with new aircraft types. F-16A and A-10A production was slowed down and many TAC and ANG units were instructed to hold on to their F-100's and F-105's for an indefinate period. In a genuine (but actually insulting) 
    compensatory gesture Rockwell were given a $45million contract to upgrade 90 F-100D's for continued service with the ANG with the aircraft emerging from their Columbus, Ohio plant as F-100G's with refurbished engines, partially re-skinned wings and minor avionics upgrades.
     
    The first unit to receive F-100G's was the 131st Tactical Fighter Squadron based at Barnes Municipal Airport in Westfield, Massachusetts who had been scheduled to convert from the F-100D to A-10A's but instead received F-100G's which served until 1986.

    INSTRUCTIONS
    1. From the AIRCRAFT folder drag and drop the F-100G folder into your Aircraft folder.
    2. From the DECALS folder drag and drop the F-100G folder into your main Decals folder.
    That's it!

  17. [Fictional] Supermarine Spitfire F.Mk22 'Norway'

    Supermarine Spitfire F.Mk 22 - Royal Norwegian Air Force
    This is a very simple mod of the stock Third Wire Spitfire F.Mk 22 to give a fictional Norwegian Spitfire F.Mk 22 with markings for the following squadrons;
    No.331 Squadron RNoAF in standard RAF Camo.
    No.332 Squadron RNoAF in NMF/Silver finish.
    No.91 Squadron RAF in standard RAF Camo (not a real world user).
    This mod requires AI Plane Pack 2 and should not conflict with the stock Third Wire Spitfire F.Mk 22.
    I have elected NOT to make this Spitfire F.Mk 22 nation specific for the RNoAF but have kept it as RAF so as to allow other future skins to be dropped in.

    INSTRUCTIONS
    1. From the AIRCRAFT folder drag and drop the SpitfireF22 folder into your main Aircraft folder.
    2. From the DECALS folder drag and drop the SpitfireF22 folder into your main Decals folder.
    At this point it might be a good idea to change the pilot to whatever you've got in your install suitable for the early post-war period.

    CREDITS

  18. [Fictional] Lockheed F-104E Starfighter 'ANG'

    Lockheed F-104E for STRIKE FIGHTERS 2
    This is a very simple mod of the stock Third Wire F-104G to create a fictional USAF F-104E with markings for;
    112th TFS of the Ohio ANG in a 'Euro One' style scheme.
    162nd TFS of the Ohio ANG in a 'Euro One' style scheme.
    198th TFS of the Puerto Rico ANG in a 'T.O. 1-1-4' style scheme.
    It goes without saying that you must have the F-104G LOD's in your install.

    BACKSTORY
    Whilst, officially, USAF interest in the F-104 programme began to ebb (leading to only 77 F-104C's being built) they kept a watchful eye on Lockheed's progress into transforming the original hot-rod interceptor fighter into a multi-mission tactical fighter for export to selected 'free world' nations. As negotiations with Federal Germany reached a critical phase in 1958 concern was expressed by the Bonn government that Lockheed were attempting to sell an aircraft no longer wanted by it's home nation. Lockheed cleverly took these concerns back to Washington and claimed that lucrative export orders were at jeopardy leading to a token order for a new version of the Starfighter for the USAF.
    Designated F-104E this new version broadly represented a halfway house between the F-104C and the forthcoming F-104G. Only 60 F-104E's were planned to be produced but the success of the F-104C flown by Capt Charles E. Tofferi in the 1962 William Tell tactical weapons meet, against strong competition from F-100 and F-105 pilots, led to continued low-rate production followed by a larger batch of 240 F-104E's making an eventual total of 336. F-104E's were deployed to Vietnam and surviving aircraft were refurbished for ANG use with the type being finally retired in 1988 when the 112th TFS re-equipped with F-16A's. 

    INSTRUCTIONS
    1. From the AIRCRAFT folder drag and drop the F-104E folder into your Aircraft folder.
    2. From the DECALS folder drag and drop the F-104E folder into your main Decals folder.
    That's it!

  19. [Fictional] Yak-41M 'Freestyle' Ukrainian Armed Forces

    Yakovlev Yak-41M for STRIKE FIGHTERS 2
    This is simple mod of Gabilon's Yak-41 'Freestyle' to create a fictional Yak-41M in service with the Ukrainian Naval Aviation and the Ukrainian Air Force. Gabilon created his Yak-41 in 2007 (his first 3D model - Chapeau!) and Fubar512 improved the FM and those improvements are duly incorporated here along with a few modifications by me.
    Three new Ukrainian skins are included;
    1. Ukrainian Naval Aviation in a blue splinter scheme for maritime operations.
    2. Ukrainian Air Force in a 'Flygvapnet' splinter scheme for tactical operations.
    3. Ukrainian Air Force in a modern (boring) grey scheme. 

    INSTRUCTIONS
    1. From the AIRCRAFT folder drag and drop the Yak-41M folder into your Aircraft folder.
    2. From the DECALS folder drag and drop the Yak-41M folder into your main Decals folder.
    3. From the SOUNDS folder drag and drop both the sound files into your main Sounds folder.
    4. From the WEAPONS folder drag and drop all four weapons folder into your main Weapons folder.
    That's it!

    Thanks to Fubar512 for his FM tweaks.

  21. [Fictional] McDonnell Douglas F-4EZ Phantom

    McDonnell Douglas F-4EZ Phantom for STRIKE FIGHTERS 2
    This is a very simple mod of the stock Third Wire F-4E_78 to create a fictional South African Air Force F-4EZ Phantom in service with No.2 Squadron in the following schemes and timeframes;
    1. 1979-1981 A 'Mirage F.1CZ' style scheme with tricolour fin and 'Springbok' national markings.
    2. 1982-2002 As above but with the later style of national markings.
    3. 2003-2012 Final Grey scheme with toned-down national markings.
    It goes without saying that you must have the F-4E_78 LOD's in your install and you'll also need the Mirage 3CZ DLC for the V3B Kukri and serial number decals although there are some easy workarounds if you don't. 
    The idea for this 'what if' came from Stratos who created the 'Mirage F.1CZ' style skin whilst I did the tank skins, decals and packaging so it's an Anglo-Spanish joint venture and we hope that you enjoy it!

    BACKSTORY
    During the mid-1970's the South African Government made tentative enquiries regarding purchasing the McDonnell Douglas Phantom for the South African Air Force (SAAF) with no success but in February 1977 the incoming Democrat President of the United States, Jimmy Carter, and the South African State President Nicolaas Diederichs agreed to the purchase of 30 F-4EZ's for delivery in 1979 and these were among the very last St. Louis-built Phantoms produced.
    Entering service with No.2 Squadron 'The Flying Cheetahs' of the SAAF the F-4EZ's initially operated from Hoedspruit AFB before moving to Louis Trichardt AFB in early 1993. With SAAF Impalas, Buccaneers and Mirage F.1CZ's operating in the ground-attack role the Phantoms saw limited action in the Border War but at least four Angolan MiG-21's and two Mi-17 helicopters were shot down by No.2 Squadron. The surviving F-4EZ's were finally retired in 2019 when they replaced by Eurofighter Typhoons.

    INSTRUCTIONS
    1. From the AIRCRAFT folder drag and drop the F-4EZ folder into your Aircraft folder.
    2. From the DECALS folder drag and drop the F-4EZ folder into your main Decals folder.
    3. From the WEAPONS folder drag and drop the V3B4 folder into your main Weapons folder. 
    That's it!

    CREDITS
    Thanks to Third Wire for a great little game/sim.
    Muchas gracias to Stratos for the superb SAAF 'Mirage F.1CZ' style skin created with a little bit of help from Ludo on SAAF colours and Sundowner's legendary F-4E templates - thanks guys!

  22. [Fictional] Mikoyan MiG-21bis Parani Air Force

    Mikoyan MiG-21bis 'Paran' for STRIKE FIGHTERS 2
    This is a very simple mod of the stock Third Wire MiG-21bis to create a fictional export version in service with the Parani Air Force during 1978-2002. The skin is by Paulopanz and I've added a matching drop tank and a fictional Parani missile named 'Zulfiqar' (basically a license-built version of the R.550 Matra Magic) with a matching skin. It goes without saying that you must have the stock MiG-21bis in your install but the skin could be renamed to fit most other stock MiG-21's.

    INSTRUCTIONS
    1. From the AIRCRAFT folder drag and drop the MiG-21bisP folder into your Aircraft folder.
    2. From the DECALS folder drag and drop the MiG-21bisP folder into your main Decals folder.
    3. From the PILOTS folder drag and drop the PILOT_PARAN folder into you main Pilots folder.
    4. From the SOUNDS folder drag and drop the SOVIET_DRY and SOVIET_WET files into your main Sounds folder.
    5. From the WEAPONS folder drag and drop the TANK_MiG21BISP and ZULFIQAR folders into your main Weapons folder.
    That's it!

    Thanks to Third Wire for a great little game/sim.
    Thanks to Paulopanz for the excellent camo skin.
    Thanks to Paladrian for the MiG-21 pit.
