  2. [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!

    INSTRUCTIONS
    1. From the AIRCRAFT folder drag and drop the F-4E_FACH folder into your Aircraft folder.

  4. [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.

    Thanks also to Gramps for the desert camo skin and also to Don (C5) for the FM which works just fine in SF2.

  5. [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!

  6. [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'

  11. [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!

  15. [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!

    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.

    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.

  21. [Fictional] Hawker Hunter F.6M (Falklands)

    Hawker Hunter F.6M for STRIKE FIGHTERS 2 
    Requires SF2 DLC 001: Hunter F.6 (60) Royal Netherlands Air Force
    This is a very simple mod of the above to give a fictional Hunter F.6M in service with RAF South Atlantic Command with markings for No.1435 Flight. You will need to have the new 'DLC' Hunter as this mod will not work with any Hunter that isn't DLC 001 although you are welcome to reverse engineer it to suit what Hunter(s) you have in your install.

    BACKSTORY
    The introduction of the Lightning F.1 and F.1A into RAF Fighter Command in 1960 and 1961 began to free-up Hunter F.6's most of which were earmarked for conversion into ground-attack aircraft for the RAF (as the FGA.9) or for export. But the Falklands Crisis of May 1961 led to the decision to base a detachment of fighter aircraft at RAF Stanley and a batch of 8 Hawker Hunter F.6's were urgently converted into F.6M's a minimum-change conversion armed with the Firestreak missile and improved navigation and radio equipment. The first four Hunter F.6M's were dispatched as deck cargo arriving at Port Stanley in September 1961 to form No.1435 Flight who quickly christened the aircraft Faith, Hope, Charity and Desperation. The second batch of Hunters arrived in December 1961 but, with improving diplomatic relations, they were basically used to keep the original four aircraft airworthy until a rotation policy was adopted. The Hunter F.6M's served until 1972 when they were replaced by Lightning F.2A's.

    INSTRUCTIONS
    1. From the AIRCRAFT folder drag and drop the HunterF6M folder into your Aircraft folder.
    2. From the DECALS folder drag and drop the HunterF6M folder into your Decals folder.
    That's it!

  24. [Fictional] Republic F-7C Thunderstorm

    Republic F-7C Thunderstorm for STRIKE FIGHTERS 2 
    This is a very simple mod of the stock MiG-23ML/P to give a fictional Republic F-7C Thunderstorm in service with the 428th and 429th Tactical Fighter Squadrons in the Vietnam SEA style skin with 'Combat Lancer' rudder flashes. 
    The USAF SEA style scheme is a lucky find as it's one of the stock Czech camo schemes! Thanks TK!

    BACKSTORY
    During late 1958 the Langley Laboratory made the breakthrough that led to the realisation of a valid variable-sweep wing and by early 1959 Tactical Air Command (TAC) could see that this massive technological breakthrough could be the key to help them in their search for a tactical strike fighter to replace both the F-100 Super Sabre and the F-105 Thunderchief. Pretty soon however the numerical values for unrefuelled range and payload that TAC had attached to their mission requirements had the effect of turning all the paper studies from F-105 sized machines to much larger tactical bombers with a corresponding increase in cost and price and this reduced affordability was of great concern to TAC.
    In the Autumn of 1959 TAC wisely decided to split their requirement into a smaller tactical fighter to replace the F-100 and a larger tactical bomber to replace the F-105, B-57 and B-66. The larger aircraft would evolve into Specific Operational Requirement No.183 that would launch the important TFX (tactical fighter experimental) programme and eventually lead (via a tortuous route) to the outstanding but highly compromised F-111 family whilst the smaller aircraft would lead to Specific Operational Requirement No.182 or TAX (tactical aircraft experimental).
    Issued in March 1960 SOR182 called for a single-seat tactical fighter aircraft with “reduced dependence of paved runways” and with “the ability to carry a nuclear bomb at supersonic speed at tree-top height”. Requests for Proposals were immediately sent out to industry and Republic Aviation’s proposal soon gained the support of TAC by virtue of its use of a variable-sweep wing but also by the use of the existing J75 turbojet and F-105 avionics. With the end of F-105 production on the horizon Republic Aviation pushed hard for SOR182/TAX and in February 1961 they were rewarded with a contract for 24 prototype and pre-production YF-110 aircraft and 400 production F-110A machines and Republic wasted no time in bestowing the name of ‘Thunderstorm’ to the latest of their long line of fighter aircraft.

    Republic Aviation were fortunate in being awarded the contract before Secretary of Defence Robert S. McNamara had got into his stride and the programme largely escaped McNamara and his whiz-kids. Development moved swiftly and during 1962 the programme was re-designated F-7 under the new tri-service designation scheme and the first prototype took to the air on December 22nd 1962 a full year ahead of the F-111A. Entering service in June 1965 the F-7A was followed by the F-7B two-seat trainer version and the more advanced F-7C version that first deployed to Vietnam in March 1968 when a two-squadron wing transferred to Takhli Royal Thia AFB, Thailand in a deployment called ‘Combat Lancer’.

    INSTRUCTIONS
    1. From the AIRCRAFT folder drag and drop the F-7C folder into your Aircraft folder.
    2. From the DECALS folder drag and drop the F-7C folder into your Decals folder.
    That's it!

  25. [Fictional] BAC Lightning F.53H

    BAC Lightning F.53H for STRIKE FIGHTERS 2 
    This is a very simple mod of the stock Lightning F.53 to give a fictional Lightning F.53H of the Hungarian Air Force.

    BACKSTORY
    The revolutions of 1989 generally had a domino effect across Eastern Europe and Hungary soon followed Poland and in March 1989 the government bravely declared the anniversary of the 1848 Revolution a national holiday and this was soon followed by the reburial of former Prime Minister Imre Nagy (executed after the 1956 Revolution) and calls for Soviet forces to leave Hungary. Popular opposition to the Communist regime continued, eventually leading to Mátyás Szurös declaring Hungary a republic on October 23rd, 1989 and the free elections of March 1990. However. with Soviet forces withdrawing fast the Hungarian Air Force (Magyar Légiero) was soon short of equipment and spares and when the Soviet MiG-29's departed from Tokol in 1991 the air defence of Hungary rested with literally a handful of poorly maintained MiG-21's. 
    During the late 1980's British Aerospace had bought back many of the surviving Saudi Lightning F.53's and had hoped to sell them to Austria (whose air force were hard-pressed to intercept a business jet) but the deal fell through and the Lightnings had continued to lanquish at Warton prompting a tentative offer to sell them to Hungary at a knock-down price. In May 1991 the UK Government bought 26 of the ex-Saudi Lightning F.53's and gifted them to the Hungarian Air Force in a move believed to have orchestrated by President George H. Bush. 
    Arriving in August 1991 the Lightnings were operated by the 59th Tactical Fighter Wing at Kecskemét AFB and served until 1998 when they were replaced by MiG-29's donated from Germany and Poland.
     
    INSTRUCTIONS
    1. From the AIRCRAFT folder drag and drop the LightningF53H folder into your Aircraft folder.
    2. From the DECALS folder drag and drop the LightningF53H folder into your Decals folder.
    That's it!
