  1. EF-101D Jammin VooDoo. What If...


    I have absolutely no idea what I am doing here...
    The true story behind Jammin VooDoo
    When USAF realized that maintaining expensive RF-101B become problematic for the budget they started to look for potential clients among allied forces. Imperial Iranian Air Force saw an opportunity in this. After closing the deal IIAF immediately asked the Israeli industry to prepare a possible package for 22 airframes. The deal covered the full conversion of existing airframes into electronic countermeasure fighters. RF-101B received ground mapping radar and sophisticated electronics. It was successfully used by IIAF in escort and SEAD missions until 1979. Soon before the revolution, Israel was afraid that Jammin Voodoo electronics will get into the wrong hands. Thanks to diplomatic efforts Heyl Ha'Avir acquired all 22 airframes. Jammin VooDoo stayed in Israel until 1983 where it served in 253 Tayeset as an experimental ECM detachment. In 1983 due to huge expenses with old airframes, EF-101 was sold back to the USA. All aircraft were sent to two National Guard squadrons where they served for 4 more years in "wild Weasel" detachments.
    In 2380 due to a temporal anomaly, USS Titan was sent into 1988. On secret assignment, all 22 aircraft were beamed into the cargo bay where airframes were scrapped and electronics were used to create a time beacon. 
     
     
    Basic modding skills are required t run this mod.

  2. Dassault/FMA Rafale EA-2/DA

    BACKSTORY: 
    In 2014, with the Mirage retirement in mind, Argentina started a competition to decide wich plane was going to replace it in the near future. Due to the strategic position of the country and the abundance of resources, the contest ended up having various options: the F/A-18E/F, the Tejas MK1 and MK2, the Gripen, the Su-30, the MiG-35, the J-10CE and the Rafale, all with unique variants to fill the needs of the Argentinian Air Force.
    The chosen plane was the Rafale. The Argentinian Ministry of Defence agreed on 18 planes, 12 Rafale EA-2s and 4 Rafale DAs. The Rafale EA-2 is an advanced variant of the Rafale F4, equipped with AESA radar and Conformal Fuel Tanks. It can fire the MBDA MICA missiles, along with some russian ordenance. This is because Dassault, Argentina and Russia agreed to replace the british parts with russian parts in the exchange of Argentina buying and equipping the Rafale with russian precise guided munitions.
    The Argentinian Rafale participated in various exercises with NATO and eastern side countries, like the "ECOAS I", where the Argentinian pilots showed its great ability to fly low, "sinking" the USS George Bush.
    Special thanks to JAT81500, for releasing the Dassault Rafale F4,  wich is used as the Dassault Rafale EA-2
    And ThirdWire, for this amazing sim, that I love and play almost everyday...

    I hope you enjoy this mod as much as I do.
    Have a good flight!
    Good hunting!

  3. [Fictional] Mikoyan-Gurevich Ye-2PFM "Faceplate-D"

    Mikoyan-Gurevich Ye-2PFM "Faceplate-D" for STRIKE FIGHTERS 2 
    Released 'as is', this is Mikoyan-Gurevich Ye-2PFM 'Faceplate' - featuring a 3D model by KnightWolf45 (the artist formerly known as Cocas). 
    In the mid-1950's the MiG OKB was tasked in developing a new lightweight supersonic interceptor fighter for the Soviet Air Force and flight-tested two distinct designs in parallel - one with a thin, swept-wing and one with a tailed delta wing. The tailed delta would eventually win out to become the famous MiG-21 'Fishbed' but it's tantalising to consider 'what if' the swept-wing Ye-2A prototype had either won or was considered good enough to also be procured. Anyway, this is the swept-wing Ye-2 as it might have looked in service with the Soviet Air Force and I've also included Egyptian, Mongolian and Parani skins. 
    Giving the aircraft a service designation is tricky as it was given a provisional designation of MiG-23 but, of course, this conflicts with the swing-wing 'Flogger' that came later. We can't use an even number like MiG-20 or MiG-22 so I've just called it the Ye-2PFM and you can change this to suit your own thoughts on this matter.

    INSTRUCTIONS
    1. From the AIRCRAFT folder drag and drop the Ye-2PFM folder into your Aircraft folder.
    2. From the DECALS folder drag and drop the Ye-2PFM folder into your Decals folder.
    3. From the WEAPONS folder drag and drop the Faceplate-GP-9 folder into your Weapons folder.
    That's it!

    CREDITS
    As always, thanks to Third Wire for a great little game/sim.
    Huge thanks to KnightWolf45 for creating the Ye-2PFM 3D model a few years ago and to the CAF team for any inputs that followed.
    Special thanks also to Coupi for sending me his templates that I've used to create the skins.
    Thanks to Paladrian for the MiG-21 pit.
    And, finally, thanks to everyone in the wider Third Wire community.

    Supermarine Spitfire IXc 'Iran' for STRIKE FIGHTERS 2 
    This is a simple mod of the stock Third Wire Spitfire IXc to create a fictional Spitfire IXc in service with the Imperial Iranian Air Force in the 1946-1951 timeline.

    BACKSTORY
    When Iran ordered Hawker Hurricanes from the UK in 1940 there was never any real hope of the order being immediately fulfilled due to the urgent wartime demands of the Royal Air Force although 10 war weary Hurricanes were transferred from RAF Middle East Command stocks during 1943. When hostilities ceased the Iranian government asked the UK government for more advanced fighters and this was agreed leading to the transfer of 26 Supermarine Spitfire IXC's from RAF Mediterranean and Middle East Command. All 26 Spitfires were delivered to the Advanced Fighter Training Group of the Flying Training School at Doshan Teppeh during 1946.

    INSTRUCTIONS
    1. From the AIRCRAFT folder drag and drop the Spitfire9cIIAF folder into your Aircraft folder.
    2. From the DECALS folder drag and drop the Spitfire9cIIAF folder into your Decals folder.

  11. Lockheed/FMA IA-16 "Serpiente"

    Lockheed/FMA IA-16 Serpiente:
    BACKSTORY:
    The year is 1998. Argentina starts showing its newly acquired A-4AR Fightinghawk, modernized to replace the old A-4Bs. While this was happening, it was clear that the Mirages had to be retired anywhere in a near future. So, the Fabrica Militar de Aviones, also called FMA, joins Lockheed Martin to develop a multirole, supersonic fighter, to fill the space that the Mirage will no longer cover. The result of this alliance is the IA-16 Serpiente, a multirole, supersonic and highly capable aircraft, developed from the F-16. The Serpiente is very similar to the Japanese F-2, but they have some differences that make them unique: while the F-2 has a boom receptor for air refueling, the Serpiente has a fuel probe, being capable of refueling from the KC-130 owned by the FAA. The avionics and a lot of parts from the plane itself are made in Argentina, and after 2008, the plane could be made in Argentinian soil without importing a single manufactured piece. The first plane flew in 2002, and was introduced in the FAA in the year 2005. The plane is equipped with Python 5 and AMRAAM missiles. It also can be equipped with AIM-9Xs and, due to the open architecture, it can be equipped with MICA and Meteor missiles. In 2007, Argentina recieved a first batch of 24 Serpientes, with 12 going to the 5th Fighter Group and the other 12 to the 6th Fighter Group, and in 2015, with the retirement of the Mirages and Neshers, another 24 IA-16 Serpiente Block 2 were ordered, plus the modernization of the existing ones to the Block 1+ standard, matching the avionics of the upcoming versions. The nacionalization of the whole assembly proccess of the plane has opened the opportunity for exports, being offered to small countries, like Uruguay, Paraguay and El Salvador. These 3 countries allegedly planned to buy 12 units of the Serpiente each one, but pressure from the US (even though the Serpiente is a US derived product) made them decline the offer. The Serpiente has seen service in the FAA for 15 years now, and is expected to surpass 2040. The future of this plane looks bright, with several modifications planned for the next year, like a radar-absorbing painting, to have semi-stealth capabilities (coming probably next update).
    Special thanks to: 
    Dels, the creator of the F-2.
    EricJ, who uploaded the F/A-18A and its HUD, which I used for this mod.
    SandMartin, who helped me to remake the cabin.
    ValAstur, who inspired me to make this mod, and for the Nachash, the starting point of this.
    Eagle114th, for the screenshots, which he took while I was isolated, and for taking the time to test  everything (he tested absolutely EVERYTHING and helped me correct it)
    ThirdWire, for this awesome sim.
    CONTENTS:
    Lockheed/FMA IA-16 Serpiente and its decals.
    Rafael Python 5 and Hughes AIM-120-AR, the missiles of this plane.
    Fuel tanks.
    Pilot and refuel probe.
    NOTES: 
    The cabin is bugged, and we couldn't fix it. We corrected the position of the seat, but some things dissapeared, as far as I know, the LOD of the cabin is bugged.

  12. Lightning f.53dh 1974/1987 "Super Lightning" - Dhimar

    A simple mod of stock TW Lightning F.53.  It gives you two fictional variants of dhimari Lightnings,  armed with Sparrow and Sidewinders, with 1987 version equipped with modern HUD and radar from F-16A.  It's the first SF2 mod i decided to share.    Obviously,  Strike Fighters 2 Expansion Pack 2 is required. 
     
    --------------------------Background Story
    In 1966, Kingdom of Dhimar, worried about Parani supersonic Tu-22 bombers and Su-7 strike aircraft, ordered 34 F.53 Lightning interceptors from BAC.
    While Dhimari air force pilots were more than satisfied with its performance, speed and rate of climb, its missile armament was not really adequate for the task. This has become even more apparent after kingdom started to receive its first batch of US made F-4 Phantoms, armed with radar guided, all aspect missiles.
    In 1972, decision was made to upgrade the Dhimari Lightnings to more modern standards.  Working together with Ferranti and Raytheon, Royal Dhimari Research and Development Bureau managed to successfully modify the AI.23 radar allowing it to guide new AIM-7 sparrow missiles.  Both hull and wing hardpoints were modified in order to mount US provided AIM-7s and AIM-9s.  The upgrade program also added (audio only) RWR and countermeasure launchers.  The modifications decreased the volume of ventral fuel tank, however this was considered to be acceptable trade-off, and between 1974 and 1976 all dhimari lightnings were converted to this variant.
    In 1986 BAe offered further 22 Lightnings to Dhimar - all ex-Saudi F.53 airframes, together with supply of spare parts and engines.  Soon after that, further 10 Lightnings were bought from Kuwait.  At first, all airframes were intended to be simply refurbished and upgraded to the same standard as rest of dhimari fighters,  but - mostly because of personal insistence of Dhimari Prince Fa'ad, the decision was made to modify them even further, completely replacing 60s era avionics with significantly more advanced systems - most important of them being latest AN/APG-66 radar, together with Marconi HUD (displayed directly on pilot's windshield, like in F-14, rather than on separate glass panel).
    In October 1987 first such modified Lightnings entered Dhimari service.  The program was deemed successful enough that in early 90s it was extended to 1972 modified airframes as well.
    While 1972 and 1987 variants retained the ground attack capabilities of F.53, Dhimari air force preferred to keep them as pure air defence fighters.  However, few airframes transferred to mercenary Special Operation Wing were sometimes used as strike aircraft - despite being armed only with unguided weaponry.
     
    --------------------------Installation
    Just unpack and drop it into mod folder.

  13. Chengdu J-10AR "Ehécatl"

    Chengdu J-10A-AR "Ehécatl"
    This model is a approximation of how a Chengdu J-10 might look if it was in service with the Argentinian Air Force, being part of the 6to Grupo de Caza y Ataque, belonging to the VI Brigada Aérea. 
    As many of you might know, Argentina is planning to modernize its air force, and one of the jets that has been considered is the J-10, coming along with the JF-17, the MiG-35 and the MiG-29 (I should work on one of those).
    The model, though, is not accurate. The offer made by China considers the J-10CE, an export version of the J-10C.
    This plane can carry Chinese and Russian weapons, and Argentinian Mk-series bombs.
    The aircraft will appear on the list as "Chengdu J-10A-AR "Ehécatl".
    The adding of the -AR is just a formality.
    To install it, you will need to copy and paste the folders in your SF2 mod folder, following basic mod installation proccess.
    In the folder >>J10AR-Final Version<< you will find 4 folders. These are:
    Aircraft >> J-10A
    Decals >> J-10A
    Flight >> FLIGHTENGINE.INI
    Weapons >> KometaTankC // KometaTankW
    Special thanks to:
    Erwin_Hans and InSky, for the fantastic model they made of the Dragon...
    Franconinja14, who made the skin for the plane...
    Stipe, for the MiG-29M3 "Hyper Fulcrum" and its HUD, that I used for this mod...
    Spinners, for the Kometa and its tanks, wich I use in this mod...
    Eagle114th, for the screenshots, giving me tips and helping with everything (this guy is a genius)...
    And ThirdWire, for this amazing sim, that I love and play almost everyday...

    I hope you enjoy this mod as much as I do.
    Have a good flight!
    Good hunting!

  16. [Fictional] McDonnell Douglas F-4S 'COAN' for STRIKE FIGHTERS 2

    McDonnell Douglas F-4S 'COAN' for STRIKE FIGHTERS 2
    This is a simple mod of the F-4S by 'The Mirage Factory' to give a fictional Phantom F-4S 'COAN' as it might have appeared in service with the Comando de Aviación Naval Argentina during the 1980-2010 timeline. Also included are three fictional Argentine aircraft carriers; the ARA Bernardino Rivadavia (V-3), the ARA Hippolyte Bouchard (V-4) and the ARA Guillermo Brown (V-5).

    INSTRUCTIONS
    1. From the AIRCRAFT folder drag and drop the F-4S_COAN folder into your Aircraft folder.
    2. From the DECALS folder drag and drop the F-4S_COAN folder into your Decals folder.
    3. From the GROUND OBJECTS folder drag and drop all three folders into your Ground Objects folder.*
    4. From the PILOTS folder drag and drop the PILOT_COAN into your Pilots folder.
    5. From the WEAPONS folder drag and drop both folders into your Weapons folder.
    * You'll really need to add 'ArgentineNavy' to the limited nations section of the ICELANDNA_NATIONS data.ini (which you'll need to extract). Doing this yourself will allow you to align the Argentine Navy to a 'colour' of your choice.

    CREDITS
    As always, thanks to Third Wire for a great little game/sim.
    Special thanks to 'The Mirage Factory' for permission to modify the F-4S and also to Sundowner for the F-4S templates which really helped in adapting the Third Wire F-4J skins to fit.
    Thanks to Ravenclaw007 for the AM39 Exocet missile - as soon as I saw the textures I knew who to thank!
    Thanks also to the creator of the AR_BRP_250-Kappa_E bomb. It's been in my install for ages but I honestly don't know who to thank.
    And, finally, thanks to everyone in the wider Third Wire community.

  19. [Fictional] Yakovlev Yak-130F for Strike Fighters 2

    Yakovlev Yak-130F for STRIKE FIGHTERS 2 
    This is a simple mod of the Yak-130 by UllyB to create a fictional Yak-130F in service with the Finnish Ilmavoimat in the 2016-2030 timeline.

    BACKSTORY
    At the end of the Cold War the Finnish Air Force relaxed it's policy of alternating it's combat aircraft purchases between Soviet and Western types and replaced both the Saab Draken and the MiG-21 with American F-18C and D Hornets with the F-18C's being assembled by Valmet in Finland. Soon after Finland declared that all the provisions of the Paris Peace Treaties, including those limiting the size and scope of it's armed forces, were nullified. This closed the door on Russian exports to Finland until September 2011 when, unexpectedly, the Libyan National Transitional Council cancelled Libya's order for six Yak-130 advanced jet trainers. Almost immediately, the Russian Government instructed the Irkut Corporation to offer these aircraft to Finland at a discounted and allegedly heavily subsidised price.
    The six Yak-130's were delivered to the Finnish Air Force Academy in Tikkakoski with the first aircraft arriving in November 2012. Finnish Air Force officials were so impressed with the Yak-130 that they recommended to the Finnish Ministry of Defence to make a further purchase of the Yak-130 but specifically tailored to the light attack role and with the benefit of reducing the number of aircraft required for the Hornet replacement programme (later re-named as the HX Fighter Program). With input from the Irkut Corporation and the Finnish Air Force a new export version of the Yak-130 was quickly drafted and offered to the Finnish Government as the Yak-130F (F=Finlyandiya). In March 2013 Finland ordered 14 Yak-130F's for delivery during 2015 and 2016. Entering service with the newly re-formed Fighter Squadron 21 at Pirkkala in May 2016 the aircraft operate in the light attack role with a recent upgrade allowing them to use GBU-32 and GBU-38 precision guided munitions.

    INSTRUCTIONS
    1. From the AIRCRAFT folder drag and drop the Yak-130F folder into your Aircraft folder.
    2. From the DECALS folder drag and drop the Yak-130F folder into your Decals folder.
    3. From the WEAPONS folder drag and drop all files into your Weapons folder. This simply adds some weapons to give you the loadout I've chosen but you can select whatever you want.
    That's it!

    As always, thanks to Third Wire for a great little game/sim.
    Special thanks to UllyB & team for bringing us the Yak-130. His original read me is included.

  20. [Fictional] McDonnell Douglas F-4DA for SF2

    McDonnell Douglas F-4DA Phantom (Argentina) for STRIKE FIGHTERS 2 
    This is a simple mod of the stock Third Wire F-4D to create a fictional F-4DA in service with the Argentine Air Force in the 1979-2010 timeline.

    BACKSTORY
    During the early 1960's the Fuerza Aérea Argentina (FAA) began an ambitious plan to replace the F-86F Sabre then in service as their main interceptor-fighter. The British English Electric Lightning was briefly considered but was quickly dismissed on account of it's very short range. The Swedish Saab Draken was successfully evaluated and FAA pilots submitted a very favourable report as was the French Dassault Mirage III and it seemed likely that a decision would be made between these two competing aircraft. However, the end of the Frondizi government in 1962 and the subsequent turmoil over the next few years saw the FAA's plans put on hold but the Israeli's successful use of the Mirage III in the 1967 Six-Day War saw the FAA finally decide on the French aircraft. However negotiations with the French Government came to an abrupt end in May 1968 when Juan Carlos Onganía, fearful of a coup d'état, dismissed the leaders of the Armed Forces and cancelled the Mirage order.
    The 1973 elections (the first general elections for ten years) saw Dr. Hector Cámpora elected as President with a campaign based on a platform of national reconstruction. For the FAA this meant that it's F-86 replacement plans could finally continue but with an aircraft from an unexpected source. Despite the turmoil of Argentina's recent history, the US State Department saw Argentina as a bulwark of anti-Communism in South America and US President Richard Nixon sanctioned the export of 28 ex-USAF F-4D's with deliveries to Grupo 4 de Caza starting in August 1973 and deliveries to Grupo 8 de Caza starting in January 1974. The 1976 US Presidential elections saw incoming President Jimmy Carter highlight issues of human rights and eventually secure a congressional cutoff of all US arms transfers to Argentina and the FAA found it increasingly hard to support Phantom operations except by clandestine support. The FAA used the Phantom during the 1982 Guerra de las Malvinas as a long-range strike aircraft but the FAA's lack of aerial refueling capability and the long distance from their bases dramatically reduced their ability. After 1982 the FAA's Phantom force was increasingly supported by Israel Aircraft Industries and although no additional aircraft could be sourced the remaining 17 aircraft remained in service until 2010.

    INSTRUCTIONS
    1. From the AIRCRAFT folder drag and drop the F-4DA folder into your Aircraft folder.
    2. From the DECALS folder drag and drop the F-4DA folder into your Decals folder.
    That's it! For Argentine weapons I recommend you get them from the excellent SF2 Falklands Mod (Redux) by eburger68.

  22. [Fictional] AMD/BAC Taranis FGA.1

    AMD/BAC Taranis FGA.1 for STRIKE FIGHTERS 2
    This is a simple mod of the stock Third Wire Kfir C1 to give a fictional AMD/BAC Taranis FGA.1 fighter-bomber with markings for No.1, No.6 and No.54 squadrons of the Royal Air Force in the late
    1960's and 1970's.
    BACKSTORY
    The RAF's search for a Hunter replacement took many twists and turns but by 1962 the focus had come back to a more basic and austere fighter-bomber but still with supersonic performance. 
    Dassault had previously proposed the promising Avon-Mirage (first flown in February 1961) to the RAF and had also unsuccessfully offered it to both Australia and Switzerland but by 1963 Rolls-Royce and SNECMA were offering their outstanding Sequanna turbofan to Dassault with the potential for 12,000lbs of dry thrust and 18,000lbs with reheat.
    However it was not until the cancellation of the TSR.2 in April 1965 that BAC and Dassault could formally combine to offer a version of the Mirage IV delta-winged bomber to the RAF and also the 
    proposed Mirage 'Angleterre' fighter-bomber, both powered by the Sequanna and both immediately accepted by the UK Labour government with a formal order issued in 1965. BAC's involvement was
    clearly politcal (and initially confined to the production of the UK versions of both aircraft) the BAC Warton team threw themselves into both projects being just grateful to actually have something
    on the assembly line after the Lightning.
    Whilst based on the proposed Mirage V (to meet an Israeli requirement for a simplied Mirage III) the Sequanna powered version of the Mirage required slightly larger intakes and also an additional air 
    inlet installed at the base of the vertical stabilizer for additional cooling air needed for the SNECMA designed afterburner. In June 1965 the 'Taranis' name was bestowed upon the aircraft and development moved swiftly during 1965 and 1966 culminating with René Bigand flying the first prototype from Istres in early December 1966 whilst the second prototype flew from Warton in the following March flown by Roland Beamont.
    The Taranis entered service with EC 1/2 'Cigognes' Armée de l'Air in August 1968 and with No.1 Squadron of the Royal Air Force in January 1969.
     
    INSTRUCTIONS
    1. From the AIRCRAFT folder drag and drop the TARANIS_FGA1 folder into your Aircraft folder.
    2. From the DECALS folder drag and drop the TARANIS_FGA1 folder into your Decals folder.
    That's it!

  23. SF2 NAA B-45B Tornado "Gunship" What-If by Veltro2k

    SF2 NAA B-45B Tornado "Gunship" What-If Pack by Veltro2k      3/27/2021
    -For SF2, Any and All (Full 4/5 Merged Reccomended)
    "Quarantine Approved - Essential Mods"
    This is the release of a "What If..." variant of the North American B-45B "Tornado" light jet bomber. This version is totally fictional, but the model itself is based on some modifications performed on a few "C" models (ie: the solid nose).
    This aircraft represents those as if they had entered service with the 84th Bomb Squadron of the 47th Bomb Wing. Historically, all bomber versions only served with the 47th in it's 3 squadrons.
    All markings are decals, and decal randomization is TRUE. All serial numbers are spurious, but are taken from another aircraft (also a bomber) of the same year vintage. There are 12 serial/buzz numbers. Squadron color markings ARE historically correct for the 84th.
    All necessary parts have been provided, with one caveat. The Mk.7 (61kt) nuclear bomb does =NOT= include the nuke explosion effect. As there are several around, you End Users (tm) may need to do some editing/renaming. I use the one from the Gunny Ordinance Pack. Other weapons include under-wing 5" HVAR rockets & rails, GP bombs, and torpedos. There are 4 20mm cannon in the solid nose. Unfortunately, due to needing a real gunsight (K-14), the bombsight won't/doesn't work. You may have to 'glide bomb' or best guess it.
    When in-game, you can identify this aircraft by it's Displayed Name on the aircraft Drop Down Selector. You'll see:
    B-45B Tornado (WI)
    The "WI" standing for "What If". 
    As is always recommended, unzip to a temp folder or your desktop to give easy access to the rest of this readme for it's install instructions. PLEASE READ THEM!!! Also, please read the "Notes" for other info, "historical" notes and some operational suggestions.
    Happy Landings!

  24. [Fictional] Lockheed F-104H Starfighter for SF2

    Lockheed F-104H Starfighter for STRIKE FIGHTERS 2 
    This is a simple mod of the stock Third Wire F-104G to create a fictional F-104H in service with the Fuerza Aérea Argentina in the 1968-2006 timeline and with markings for;
    Grupo 8 (SEA Camo) 
    Grupo 6 (Lo-Viz Grey N.B. StartDefaultDate=1983)
    Grupo 4 (Green/Grey Camo)

    BACKSTORY
    During the Spring of 1965 the Fuerza Aérea Argentina formally issued an operational requirement for a supersonic fighter-bomber to supplement and eventually replace it's F-86 Sabre force and to operate alongside the Douglas Skyhawks that were just entering service. The BAC Lightning was quickly ruled out as being short on range and undeveloped in the air-to-ground role and by the end of 1965 Fuerza Aérea Argentina officials declared that the choice was between the Dassault Mirage III and the Lockheed F-104 Starfighter. Lockheed had proposed a new variant, the F-104H, a projected export version based on the F-104G but with an optical gunsight and simplified equipment. Following a visit by Lockheed representatives to the Casa Rosada in Buenos Aires in early July 1966 the newly inaugurated President Juan Carlos Onganía announced that 36 F-104H's would be procured for the Fuerza Aérea Argentina. Entering service in March 1968 with Grupo 8 de Caza at the Military Air Base Mariano Moreno the F-104H's served until 2006 when the last Starfighters operating anywhere in the world were finally retired.

    INSTRUCTIONS
    1. From the AIRCRAFT folder drag and drop the F-104H folder into your Aircraft folder.
    2. From the DECALS folder drag and drop the F-104H folder into your Decals folder.
    That's it! I've kept the loadouts to basic stock weapons but if you have Argentine weapons in your install then it's worth editing the F-104H_Loadout.ini to suit what you have.

    BACKSTORY
    Delays in the UK's Tornado ADV programme lead to the RAF upgrading 38 Lockheed Starfighter FGR.2's to a new F.3 standard featuring the uprated J79-GE-19 engine (developing 12,000lbs dry thrust and 17,900lbs with afterburner) and the improved NASARR R-21G/H radar with moving target indicator and continuous wave illuminator for the Skyflash semi-active radar homing missile. Entering service with No.29 Squadron in 1980 the Starfighter F.3's remained in service until 1991.
