  1. [Fictional] Fiat G.55 Centauro for Strike Fighters 2

    Fiat G.55 Centauro for STRIKE FIGHTERS 2 
    This is a simple mod of Veltro2K's Fiat G.55 Centauro to create a fictional Fiat G.55 Centauro in service with the Turkish Air Force in the 1944-1949 timeline. Also included is a Parani Army Air Force skin (in fact, this mod is set up as a Parani aircraft).

    INSTRUCTIONS
    1. From the AIRCRAFT folder drag and drop the Centauro folder into your Aircraft folder.
    2. From the DECALS folder drag and drop the Centauro folder into your Decals folder.
    3. From the SOUNDS folder drag and drop the Bf109G folder into your Sounds folder.
    4. From the WEAPONS folder drag and drop all three folders into your Weapons folder.
    That's it, although you might want to use the WW2 pilot of your choice. Please note that the 3D model has a tiny bit of 'decal bleed' on the port side of the nose.

    CREDITS
    As always, thanks to Third Wire for a great little game/sim.
    Thanks to Veltro2K for making the G.55 Centauro 3D model.
    Thanks to Charles for the original skins and also for the flight model.
    Thanks to Kesselbrut and Capun for the cockpit.

  2. B-42A Mixmaster for Strike Fighters 2

    Douglas B-42A Mixmaster for STRIKE FIGHTERS 2 
    This is the B-42 Mixmaster by veltro2k with some fictional 'in service' operational USAAF/USAF B-42A schemes using Third Wire's date switch to give you the USAAF starbar in 1944 to 1947 and then the USAF starbar (and nation name) from 1948 onwards. You can fly the prototype in 1944 and for gameplay reasons we've placed it in service from 1945 onwards with service years allowing for use in the Korean War (check out the night scheme) and all operational schemes have new nose art decals.
    The unique feature of the B-42 is, of course, it's twin bubble canopies and this caused some problems when 'in cockpit' as panning to starboard cannot accurately show a real world view of the right-hand canopy, the co-pilot and his cockpit so it's a bit of a compromise which we trust you will accept. If anyone can suggest any improvements in the cockpit view then let us know.
    It's likely some of you will want to do your own skins for favourite squadrons or perhaps for export versions so a template is included and we'd love to see your results!

    The B-42A Mixmaster is brought to you by;
    B-42 3D Model - veltro2k
    B-42A Skins/Decals - Spinners
    B-42A FM and ini's - Wrench

    INSTRUCTIONS
    1. From the AIRCRAFT folder drag and drop the B-42A folder into your Aircraft folder.
    2. From the DECALS folder drag and drop the B-42A folder into your Decals folder.
    3. From the WEAPONS folder drag and drop the enclosed folders into your Weapons folder.
    4. From the SOUNDS folder drag and drop the enclosed sound file into your Sounds folder.
    That's it!

    CREDITS
    As always, thanks to Third Wire for a great little game/sim.
    Huge thanks to veltro2k for not only tackling this aircraft but also cranking in improvements along the way.
    Thanks to russouk2004 for his help with the 3D model.
    Thanks also to Capun for the Do-335 used as the damaged model. 
    Thanks to Wrench for his work on the flight model and ini work.

  3. [Fictional] RAF SEPECAT Jaguar FGR.3

    SEPECAT Jaguar FGR.3 for STRIKE FIGHTERS 2
    This is a simple mod of the excellent 'The Mirage Factory' Jaguar GR.1 to give a 'what if' Jaguar FGR.3 tactical fighter with markings for No.45 and No.58 squadrons of No.38 Group, RAF Strike Command. This revision now also includes a desert camo skin for No.112 squadron and uses a revised 3D model.

    BACKSTORY
    In 1974 a cancelled export order for 50 Jaguar Internationals left the SEPECAT consortium with a headache as many 'long lead' items had already been ordered and assembly was already underway on the first 12 airframes. At this time the RAF were keen to order more Jaguars to form a second wing of No.38 Group, RAF Strike Command and, with the delays in the Tornado production programme meaning a shortage of work at BAC's Warton factory,  BAC pushed the Labour government into accepting a deal for all 50 aircraft. Some consideration was given to standardising the aircraft to match the RAF's GR.1 force but the uprated Adour engines and different avionics saw the aircraft confusingly designated as the Jaguar FGR.3.
    Entering service in early 1977 the Jaguar FGR.3's served with No.45 and No.58 squadrons as part of No.38 Group and also with a reformed No.112 Squadron detached to RAF Near East Air Force. The FGR.3's uprated Adour engines and early introduction of overwing missile rails made them something of an elite element within the RAF's Jaguar force and they were deployed to many hot-spots around the world until their somewhat premature retirement in 2002.

    INSTRUCTIONS
    1. From the AIRCRAFT folder drag and drop the JaguarFGR3 folder into your Aircraft folder.
    2. From the DECALS folder drag and drop the JaguarFGR3 folder into your Decals folder.
    3. Empty the contents of the WEAPONS folder into your Weapons folder
    4. Empty the contents of the PILOTS folder into your main Pilots folder.
    5. From the SOUNDS folder drag and drop the Adour sound file into your Sounds folder.
    That's it!

    CREDITS
    As always, thanks to Third Wire for a great little game/sim.
    Massive thanks to everyone at 'The Mirage Factory' (RIP Oli).
    Special thanks to sundowner for both skins used in this revised upload and also for his permission to use his revised LOD with built-in drop tanks.

  4. SF2 Mirage 4000M and M2

    This aircraft mod represents Dassault's what-if Mirage 4000M naval figthter and its dual seat M2 variant in the French Navy service.
    This package comes with 2 skin sets for each variant, 2 squadron specific for M (15 planes), and 2 sets for single squadron (6 planes) for M2.
    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 previous variants you can skip the overwrite prompt of weapons, effects and flight folder contents as those 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 lod(_nd) as lod1.
    The model uses the general french weapons, either as part of weapon packs or the Mirage 2000 family.
    Important: The M2 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=Mirage4000M2_Cockpit.ini <---- basic setup
    ;CockpitDataFile=Mirage4000M2_Cockpit_full1.ini <------ front seat
    ;CockpitDataFile=Mirage4000M2_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. Fictional Mikoyan Ye-8 family

    This aircraft mod represents a fictional evolution/upgrade of the Mikoyan-Gurevich's Ye-8 experimental fighter. There are several wing designs, systems and weapons that were under experiment during the 60-70-s though these are not actual replications of them  and the pits are pure fictional using equipment/instruments of that given time frame.
    This package comes with 1 or 2 skin set for each variant, with decals for Soviet aircraft.
    This model is meant for SF2 games only.
    Install is the regular dropping the contents in their respective places. In case you have the previous Ye-8/M pack the contents of the Effects, Decals, Guns and Pilot folders not need to be copied over.
    Please note: The model might gets heavy on FPS in large formations on weaker machines, so if required, either resize skin files or use lower lod "_nd" as lod1.
    New weapons are provided - some type specific - beside these the model uses the general Soviet weapons.
    Be aware - In the 1970's and later when AA-8 can be selected, manually double loadout of these can happen. 
    Make sure to read the manual included with the package.

  6. [Fictional] Hawker Hurricane Mk.1 'Yankee Squadron'

    Hawker Hurricane Mk.1 'Yankee Squadron' for STRIKE FIGHTERS 2 
    This is a simple mod of Raven's early Hawker Hurricane Mk.1 to create a fictional Hurricane Mk.1 in service with 'Yankee Squadron' of the Spanish Republican Air Force in the 1938-1939 timeline.

    INSTRUCTIONS
    1. From the AIRCRAFT folder drag and drop the Hurricane1spr folder into your Aircraft folder.
    2. From the DECALS folder drag and drop the Hurricane1spr folder into your Decals folder.

  7. [Fictional] Sukhoi Su-24P 'Fencer' for SF2

    Sukhoi Su-24P for STRIKE FIGHTERS 2 
    This is a simple mod of Veltro2K's Su-24 'Fencer' to create a fictional Su-24P in service with the Republic of Paran Air Force in the 1980-2020 timeline. 
    Please note that this Su-24P is released 'as is' (in response to a request) and it really needs some additional work on loadouts and the skin. In addition, the 3D model unfortunately has some 'rope' issues so you might want to turn shadows off.

    INSTRUCTIONS
    1. From the AIRCRAFT folder drag and drop the Su-24P folder into your Aircraft folder.
    2. From the DECALS folder drag and drop the Su-24P folder into your Decals folder.
    3. From the WEAPONS folder drag and drop the PTB-3000P folder into your Weapons folder.
    That's it!

  9. [Fictional] de Havilland Vampire FB.7 for SF2

    de Havilland Vampire FB.7 for STRIKE FIGHTERS 2
    This is a simple mod of Pasko's Vampire FB.5 to create a fictional Vampire FB.7 in service with the Royal Dhimari Air Force in the 1950 to 1962 timeline with markings for the following three squadrons;
     
    No.6 Squadron - 'The Eagles'
    No.11 Squadron - 'The Rams'
    No.13 Squadron - 'The Antelopes'
    Whilst we now have Third Wire Vampires I hope this version is of interest to those who don't have that particular expansion pack and it also allows me to use Stary's lovely Vampire cockpit. 

    INSTRUCTIONS
    1. From the AIRCRAFT folder drag and drop the VampireFB7 folder into your Aircraft folder.
    2. From the DECALS folder drag and drop the VampireFB7 folder into your Decals folder.
    3. From the WEAPONS folder drag and drop both folders into your Weapons folder.

  10. [Fictional] Dhimari F-4E Phantom

    McDonnell Douglas F-4E Phantom for STRIKE FIGHTERS 2
    This is a simple mod of the stock F-4E to give a Dhimari F-4E Phantom with markings for;
    No.1 Squadron - 'The Panthers'
    No.2 Squadron - 'The Hawks'
    As this mod uses the early 'short cannon' F-4E I have restricted the service dates to 1968 to 1973 inclusive. At some time in the future I'll get a later Dhimari F-4E sorted.

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

  11. [Fictional] Douglas Dakota C.3 - RAF Desert Camo

    Douglas Dakota C.3 for STRIKE FIGHTERS 2 
    This is a simple mod of the stock C-47A to create a Dakota C.3 in service with the Royal Air Force in the 1948-1967 timeline. Of course, the Royal Air Force were a big user of the Dakota but not in this fictional desert camo scheme which is loosely based on the original Lockheed Hercules C.1 scheme of the very early 1970's (quite an odd scheme for the times). It is flyable and RECON has been added as a secondary role so that you fly low-level recce missions and watch those MiG's stall and crash!

    INSTRUCTIONS
    1. From the AIRCRAFT folder drag and drop the DakotaC3 folder into your Aircraft folder.
    2. From the DECALS folder drag and drop the DakotaC3 folder into your Decals folder.
    That's it!

    CREDITS
    As always, thanks to Third Wire for a great little game/sim.
    Special thanks to gerwin for this lovely desert camo to which I've simply added black undersides and decals.
    Special thanks also to russouk2004 for bringing us the smashing C-47A cockpit.

    No.7 Squadron - 'The Rattlesnakes'

    Please note that this updated package now requires you to have SF2 Expansion Pack 2 as the stock B-57B was revised (much nicer - check it out).

  16. [Fictional] Gloster Javelin F.Mk56 'Dhanush'

    Gloster Javelin F.Mk56 for STRIKE FIGHTERS 2
    This is a simple mod of the Veltro2K's superb Gloster Javelin to give a fictional Javelin F.Mk56 'Dhanush' of the Indian Air Force with markings for the equally fictitious No.36 'Trishula' squadron and, in this revised upload, I've also included markings for No.14 Squadron (Bulls).

    BACKSTORY
    The expansion of the Indian Air Force during the mid-1950's saw the planned procurement of the Hawker Hunter fighter-bomber and the English Electric Canberra bomber in substantial quantities but Indian Air Force planners saw the lack of an all-weather interceptor as a problem and urged the Indian Government for increased funds for a suitable aircraft. Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru initially blocked the idea but soon agreed to allow a delegation from the Gloster Aviation Company to make a presentation to the Indian Government and the Chiefs of the Indian Air Force. 
    With the end of the Javelin production line looming Gloster were proposing two new export version of the Javelin Mk8 to India -  the F.Mk55 (Sapphire-enginned) and F.Mk56 (Avon-enginned) versions. Indian Air Force chiefs were very enthusiastic about the possibility of having its three main combat aircraft use the same jet engine (albeit the Javelin's Mk.205 Avon engines had a simple afterburner fitted) and urged Nehru to proceed with the purchase of 80 aircaft but Nehru demanded to meet the Gloster delegation himself to thrash out terms. Gloster cannily sent Graeme Kimmage, who had attended Cambridge University with Nehru, to conduct the negotiations and eventually secure a deal for 80 Javelin F.Mk56's. 
    Entering service with No.36 'Trishula' squadron based at Pathankot in 1958 the Javelins only really became a complete weapon system when mated with the indigenous 'Baan' (Arrow) air-to-air missile which entered service in 1960. From this time the Javelins quickly earned the most appropriate nickname of 'Dhanush' (bow) and saw  limited service over Goa (in the recconnaisance role) but played a major role in the 1965 war with Pakistan claiming several kills including three F-86's, one F-104 and six B-57's. However, with the MiG-21 entering service the Javelin's days were numbered and the Javelin force slowly faded away and by 1975 the popular and legendary 'Dhanush' had gone for good.
     
    INSTRUCTIONS
    1. From the AIRCRAFT folder drag and drop the Javelin56 folder into your Aircraft folder.
    2. From the DECALS folder drag and drop the Javelin56 folder into your Decals folder.
    3. From the WEAPONS folder drag and drop the 'BAAN' and 'TANK300_JAV' folders to your Weapons folder.
    That's it!

  20. [Fictional] Hawker Hurricane 'Furacão'

    Hawker Hurricane 'Furacão' for STRIKE FIGHTERS 2 
    This is a simple mod of Raven's radial engined Hawker Hurricane to create a fictional 'Furacão' in service with the Poruguese Air Force in the 1942-1954 timeline.
    BACKSTORY
    The Hawker Hurricane entered service with the Royal Air Force at the end of 1937 when No.111 Squadron re-equipped with the type at RAF Northolt. By late 1938 the production capacity for Hurricanes at the Hawker Siddeley Aircraft group of companies was sufficient not only to meet the needs of the RAF's ambitious expansion scheme but also sufficient to allow exports to Yugoslavia, South Africa, Romania, Persia, Belgium, Poland and Turkey. Belgium and Yugoslavia had both negotiated production licences but only a handful were produced by Avions Fairey in Belgium before the German invasion in May 1940 and in Yugoslavia the Zmaj factory managed to build 20 Hurricanes before the German invasion in April 1941.
    At the start of World War 2, Portugal was keen to both maintain it's neutrality and also bolster it's defences - recognising that the Portuguese mainland was of strategic importance as was it's island territories of Maderia and the Azores. Indeed, both the UK and Germany considered invading the islands but British diplomacy won the day in June 1940 when the UK formally asked for use of the Azores by invoking the Aliança Luso-Britânica (Anglo-Portuguese Alliance) of 1386 which is still the oldest alliance in the history in the world that is still in force. In return, Portugal asked for a wide variety of defence equipment from the UK including "100 modern monoplane fighter aircraft". With the UK facing a desperate struggle the Portuguese 'wish list' was largely unfulfilled until much later in the war but in December 1940 the British government agreed to supply 100 Hurricane fighters by the end of the following year. 
    However, there was an urgent demand for Rolls-Royce Merlin engines for the RAF's day fighters and also for the Boulton & Paul Defiant and Bristol Beaufighter night fighters. In addition, RAF Bomber Command were about to go on the offensive with the Handley-Page Halifax having just entered service and the superlative Avro Lancaster and de Havilland Mosquito were both on the horizon. In February 1941 the British Prime Minister, Winston Churchill, blocked the sale outright but Sydney Camm at Hawker considered that the Hurricane airframe could be adapted to take a different engine and Camm was already aware that Roy Fedden of the Bristol Engine Company had developed a modular engine installation or 'power egg' for the Bristol Hercules radial engine. Fedden and Camm quickly schemed the Hercules powered Hurricane Mk.III and instructed the Gloster Aircraft Company, who had been manufacturing Hurricanes for the RAF on behalf of its parent company since 1939, to slot in 250 Hurricane Mk.III's onto the Hucclecote production line. Whilst there was no Hurricane Mk.III prototype as such, the first two production aircraft were thoroughly tested by Gloster's chief test pilot Gerry Sayer and also by Bill Humble of Hawker's and both praised it's flying characteristics noting that "the aircraft is simple and easy to fly and has no apparent vices" although the stalling speed was 8 knots higher than a standard Hurricane.
    The first 100 Hurricane Mk.III's were crated and shipped to Portugal arriving at Santo Amaro in November 1941. After local assembly, they were flown to Ota Air Base and Sintra Air Base to eventually equip six day fighter squadrons of the Aeronáutica Militar (Army Aviation) although, at the time, these squadrons (typically, with 15 aircraft on strength) were confusingly classed as 'flights' with two-digit flight codes that were used to designate the squadron. 'SU' Flight were the first to be declared operational at Ota in April 1942 followed by 'MP' flight at Sintra. In Aeronáutica Militar service the Hurricane aircraft were locally known as the Furacão and remained in service even after the formation of the Força Aérea Portuguesa in 1952 and it was not until August 1954 that the Furacão finally passed from service.
    INSTRUCTIONS
    1. From the AIRCRAFT folder drag and drop the Furacao folder into your Aircraft folder.
    2. From the DECALS folder drag and drop the Furacao folder into your Decals folder.
    3. From the WEAPONS folder drag and drop the FuracaoTank into your Weapons folder.
    That's it!

  24. [Fictional] Hawker Harrier Mk.59 'Argentina'

    Hawker Harrier Mk.59 for STRIKE FIGHTERS 2
    This is a very simple mod of wpnssgt's cracking little AV-8S 'Matador' to give a fictional Harrier Mk.59 as it might have appeared in service with the Comando de Aviación Naval Argentina and fictional markings are included for 3ra Escuadrilla Aeronaval de Caza y Ataque (3rd Fighter/Attack Squadron).

    2. From the DECALS folder drag and drop the Harrier59 folder into your Decals folder.

    Massive thanks to wpnssgt for the 3D model. Having only joined this community in early 2008 I'm guessing that this predates the Harrier contained in Wings Over Europe and, if so, then fair play - it's a beaut! As I've said before, "there's gold in them thar archives"!
    Thanks also to C5 for the FM and to Sundowner for the skin.
    As always, thanks to Third Wire for a great little game/sim.

  25. Boeing B-52K Stratofortress B.1

    Boeing B-52K Stratofortress B.1 for STRIKE FIGHTERS 2 
    This is a very simple mod of the stock (non-flyable) Third Wire B-52K to give a fictional and flyable B-52K Stratofortress B.1 in service with No.9 Squadron attached to RAF South East Asia Command.
    Also included are fictional 'Flail' and 'Flambard' bombs with Flail being especially useful against soft-skin targets (or fuel tanks if you get tasked against these in Strike missions) and Flambard being a particularly nasty incendiary bomb. You can, of course, convert it to use nukes but bombing from 12,000m with conventional ordnance is a real challenge but great fun. As we don't have a proper B-52 pit you'll have to make do with the one supplied or go your own way and I mainly prefer to fly this one with cockpit toggle off.

    INSTRUCTIONS
    1. From the AIRCRAFT folder drag and drop the B-52K folder into your Aircraft folder.
    2. From the DECALS folder drag and drop the B-52K folder into your Decals folder.
    3. From the WEAPONS folder drag and drop the FLAIL and FLAMBARD folders into your weapons folder.
