  1. F-16XL for SF2 – F-16E Blk 62 Fighting Falcon

    F-16XL for SF2 – F-16E Blk 62 Fighting Falcon 1.0
     
    In March 1981, the USAF announced the Enhanced Tactical Fighter (ETF) program to procure a replacement for the F-111. The program was later renamed the Dual-Role Fighter (DRF) competition. The concept envisioned an aircraft capable of launching deep air interdiction missions without requiring additional support by fighter escort or jamming. General Dynamics submitted the F-16XL, while McDonnell Douglas submitted the F-15E.
     
    As we all know the F-15E was chosen... BUT what if the F-16XL had been chosen instead?
     
    And so I give you the F-16E Block 62 Fighting Falcon.
     
    The designation F-16E/F Block 60/62 would have been used had the XL been selected (The F-16E/F Desert Falcon as we know it today wasn't even on the drawing board in the late 80's).
     
    Included in this mod are:
     
    - F-16E (XL) Blk 62 Fighting Falcon
     
    - F-16EM (XL) Blk 62 Fighting Falcon (CUPID mods)
     
    - 8 different USAF squadrons.
     
    To Install simply un pack and drop into your mods folder.
     
    Notes:
     
    - The weapon stations are quite complicated due to the set up on the real aircraft itself and the limitations in SF2 with the maximum amount of hard-points etc. As such it is best to use the default load out from the loadout.ini. That being said if you do want to change it at the loadout screen you need to follow these rules: If the default loadout uses rail launched weapons (Aim-9/120, AGM-65/88) under the inner wings, only change it for another rail launched weapon and vice-versa. This is because the weapon rails are loaded as an EP class weapon that doesn't show up at the loadout screen.
     
    - The default 'Attack' loadout is designed for the mass anti-armour mission as that is the kind of CAS mission SF2 generates. However in the loadout.ini file under each 'attack' loadout entry is a CAS loadout option with LGB etc.
     
    - There are a ton of different loadout options in the loadout.ini file so check them out with the single mission editor.
     
    - Loadouts are based on the F-16C Blk 40/42 but with an F-15E Strike Eagle flavor e.g. AGM-130

    = For SF2 (Full-4/5 Merged Reccomended) =
     
    *Note: you =MUST= have, as stated above have, at minimum, a Full-4 merged install, as this mod makes use of many items, most importantly, a (heavily) modified version of the stock F-4B cockpit. Therefore, it's vitally important that your game version has access to this cockpit.*
     
    The is the release of a new "What If..." bomber by Cocas, the DH Osprey B.1 for RAF usage. This is 4 jet engined medium bomber for use in the strike, interdiction and recon roles.

    As always, fairly easy to follow, detailed install instructions are included. So, please read them. One can find more fun reading all the Notes section as well!
     
    Happy Landings!

  3. [Fictional] F-104I 'Kohav' (Star) for SF2:Europe

    F-104I for STRIKE FIGHTERS 2
     
    This is a simple mod of the Third Wire Lockheed Starfighter F-104G to give a fictional F-104I 'Kohav' (Star) of the Israeli Air Force with markings for No.119 squadron - "The Bat Squadron". As this download relies on the stock Third Wire F-104G LODs then you must have SF2:Europe where TK has thoughfully left them for us.
     

    INSTRUCTIONS
     
    1. From the AIRCRAFT folder drag and drop the F-104I folder into your Aircraft folder.
     
    2. From the DECALS folder drag and drop the F-104I folder into your main Decals folder.
     

    SKINS/MARKINGS
     
    I wanted to capture the look of the early Mirage IIIC's in Israeli service and saw a photograph of a No.119 squadron machine with red/white rudder stripes and a red fin marking and decided to copy that. As there are no hi-res squadron patch images for No.119 squadron I designed by own, I hope you like it!
     

    CREDITS
     
    Special thanks to guyran for suggesting the Hebrew name of 'Kohav'.
     
    And special thanks to everyone in the wider Third Wire community.
     

    Regards

  4. SF2 Vought TF-8 Crusader Pack (What If...)

    SF2 Vought TF-8 Crusader Pack 4/8/2016
     
    = For SF2 (Full-4/5 Merged Reccomended) =
     
    *Note: you =MUST= have, as stated above have, at minimum, a Full-4 merged install, as this mod makes use of many items, from several versions of the games. A Full 5 with NA is reccomended. There are many "bits" required, most notably the cockpit referenced is from the A-7E Corsair II.*
     
    This package contains a (somwhat) fictional outgrowth of the Vought F-8 Crusader. In the Real World ™, only ONE TF-8 Crusader was built (it's on display in the Naval Aviation Museum at Pensocla, FL). This assumes that Vought and the Navy chose to expand the production/refurbishment of early model Crusaders into the 2 seat variant seen here. The aircraft has expanded capabilites in both Air-to-Air and Air-to-Ground mission tasking (see Notes for more details on the factory modifications, and squadron decals used.)
     
    This package contains the following skin sets:
     
    USN, early (Gull Grey/White
    USMC, early (Gull Grey/White
    USN, Late (TPS low visibility grey)
    French Navy, early (Gull Grey/White)
    French Navy, late (Overall Blue) - both tagged for Flotille 12
     
    The SF2 "date switch" is used for the USN and French Skins. The USMC skin stays in Grey/white for it's service life. All skins are in jpg format. Damage textures are in DDS format.
    All markings are decals, and with few exceptions, reference stock 3W Modex and Squadron tail markings. Decal randomization for all skins is TRUE. All weapons used are also stock items (note: the WalleyeIIIER -may- be an SF2NA only weapon; this has not been confirmed)
     
    As always, fairly easy to follow, detailed install instructions are included. So, please read them. Indeed, one would be well served by reading all the Notes section as well.
     
    Happy Landings!

    History
     
    Whilst the Great War was raging in Europe, the Balkans, and Mesopotamia, Countries not involved in the conflict, started breaking away from the powers that had previously held dominion over their countries, One of these countries was part of the joint occupation by Britain and France since the days of Napoleon, the area of Sharnak in the Middle East. in 1917 , whilst the French and British were other wise occupied, the populace rose up, and wrested power from the foreign administration, in a bloodless coup, as the French and British were heavily occupied with more pressing concerns, this was mostly ignored.
    A government was duly and hastily formed, drawing members from the 2 main tribes of Sharnak. unfortunately, these 2 tribes of mainly nomadic people, were usually more interested in murdering each other, than actually getting along and running the new Nation state, in late 1918, a skirmish brewed up, over the rights to a sand dune mine in central Sharnak ( Sand being the main industry of the country, and as the war was going on sand for sandbags was in great demand, and Sharnak sand was the best sand bag sand in the world) The unrest turned into full scale and very bloody civil war, with the East of the country seceding and claiming sovereignty for the Eastern half of the country. The new country, named themselves Paran, and was ruled by a single and powerful clan of fierce Bedouin. the west of the country then named themselves Dhimar, and was a kingdom as the Shah was in that side and was loved by his people. and a kingdom was kept as the political rulers of the country.
     
    The civil war continued sparodically for 18 months, during which time, both sides had managed to procure aircraft form various sources, There was a core of seasoned pilots, who had learned to fly whilst flying for the British, French, Russians and the Turks..
     
    The Dhimari Army was in dire need of a ground attack and reconnaissance aircraft, much mooting, pondering, and attempts to buy either DH9's or Bristol Fighters from the British, were met with derision, from the British Air Ministry ( also probable annoyance over the coup ! ) So as these excellent aircraft were not available for purchase, they acquired the next best thing........or not, they managed to procure some clapped out Martinsydes which were war weary and rather tatty ( to say the very least ) however, with much time and sterling effort, they restored and refurbished the aircraft to a flying, and operational standard. the Aircraft though outdated, and very slow, dis have some very big teeth, it could carry a very healthy bomb load, was fitted with cameras, and was well armed (One fixed Lewis, and one on a mount behind the cockpit ) although the pilots found the workload to be rather high, as the aircraft was so slow and ponderous, operating 2 different gun groups, the bombs and the cameras all together required the dexterity of a 4 armed sword juggler. However, the aeroplane performed its duties with great fortitude, was reliable, and tough. one of the first true multi role aircraft on the battlefield !

    all files are included in the download, decals, guns weapons are all there, also the updated Nations.ini, and SquadronList.ini to allow the aircraft to show up, this aircraft has been converted from First Eagles , so the guns are new, and will not be in any SF2 weapons packs , so make sure you do install these guns, or else you wont be able to shoot anything !! I have also included a sound file for the Lewis gun as that needs to be installed to give the guns the correct sounds, all other sounds are also included for engines etc. I strongly advise you update your soundlist.ini with new entries ( if you are unsure how to do this, take a quick look at the forums, and there are detailed instructions for this there ) Other than that, just treat this aircraft as you would any other upload to SF2 .
    The aircraft has a very nice bomb load ,but be aware, your wingman and or flight mates may use these at very random intervals, if they use them at all !! BE WARNED !! . The AI does seem to sometimes have a wobbler, and do its own thing, just ignore it, and get on with flying, and rack up some kills. I recommend letting the AI fly this aircraft as you will find your wingman bobbing about all over the sky quite annoying, also the thing is no fighter !! so prepare to be killed....lots.....and repeatedly.....over and over.......many many times.......no, really, trust me !! hahahaha

    Originally the R.D.N.A.S. was looking into the purchase of the Hanriot HD2 as a naval fighter, but the Head of the Marine Aviation division was a firm Francophile, and vetoed the purchase of Hanriots, instead, purchasing a number of N27's from the French , Why this was allowed is not clear, as the N27 wasn't by any means an outstanding aircraft, however it was light and nimble, and with the Vickers/Lewis gun armament, quite effective as an interceptor, however in combad against the Parani DVII's it fared rather badly, but it also gave out punishment , particularly against the AEG's of Parani Forward Aviation.

    Initially the R.D.A.F. purchased this aircraft as an advanced trainer, but due to operational needs it was pressed into front line service in no 2 Squadron R.D.A.F. ( RAVENS ) and although not a very fast aeroplane, it was a joy to fly, and soon became a firm favourite of Dhimari pilots. very nimble, and manouverable, with a good punch from the twin Vickers, many a Dhimari ace was born , flying this delightful little aircraft. powered by the uprated Clerget 9bf rotary it gave many years of sterling and trouble free service. when the venerable aircraft was retired from service in 1930, one was even retained by the Shah of Dihmar for his own personal aircraft.

    As previously mentioned, the head of the Parani Navy, was an accomplished flyer, who had flown for Austro Hungary during the Great War, his last operational type had been the Aviatik Berg DI , so not unsurprisingly he felt that the I.P.N.M.A. would be well suited by this aircraft type. fast, well armed and reliable, a squadron was soon formed, and commenced operations against Dhimar in mid 1919. it continued in service up until 1925 when it was withdrawn to training units as an air to air gunnery training aircraft, and was used into the 30's a such.

    The I.P.A.F.A. had recently purchased Phonix DIIa's for the forward aviation units, but it was felt that a dedicated ground attack medium attack aircraft was also desirable, after casting around, a batch of unassembled AEG CIV aircraft was discovered, and duly acquired ( by foul means !! ) assembled, and pressed into sevice. the Aircraft had a reasonable bomb load, and with adequate air cover from the Forward Aviation Phonix's was most suitable for the task at hand, though not an outstanding aircraft by any stretch of the imagination, it was serviceable ( and very cheap as they had been nicked ) and soldiered on until the late 20's when it was withdrawn from front line service, and was used as a bomber and gunner training aircraft, it could be found as a squadron hack well into the 1930's.....not bad for an aircraft gained by dubious means !!

    When the Parani Air services were formed, there was a lot of infighting between different tribes, all wanting their own little air force, this of course was not a practical solution, so 3 air arms were formed, the Airforce ( I.P.A.F.) the Army ( I.P.A.F.A.) and finally the Navy ( I.P.N.M.A. ) each of these 3 services were self governing, ( although ultimately answerable to the Sheikh) and procured their own equipment independently of the Paran Ministry of Defence ( which merely laid out guidelines for procurement ) the head of the Parani Navy had flown as a mercenary in the Austro Hungarian theatre, and had recently been trained on Avaitik Berg and Phonix aircraft, and he recommended the latter to his Cousin who just happened to be the head of the Army, so representations were made through the Polish and Czech military advisors, and a number of Phonix aircraft were acquired.as the aircraft was of sturdy and robust design, it was ideally suited for the Army and their need for ground support aircraft. Not the easiest aircraft to fly and maintain, but they remained in service until 1930, when newer and more efficient aircraft were needed.
     

    INSTALLATION
     
    all files are included in the download, decals, guns weapons are all there, also the updated Nations.ini, and SquadronList.ini to allow the aircraft to show up, this aircraft has been converted from First Eagles , so the guns are new, and will not be in any SF2 weapons packs , so make sure you do install these guns, or else you wont be able to shoot anything !! I have also included a sound file for the Shwarzlozes, as that needs to be installed to give the guns the correct sounds, all other sounds are also included for engines etc. I strongly advise you update your soundlist.ini with new entries ( if you are unsure how to do this, take a quick look at the forums, and there are detailed instructions for this there ) Other than that, just reat this aircraft as you would any other upload to SF2 .
    The aircraft flies as it should do, there is a very small bomb load ( NOT HISTORICALLY ACCURATE !! ) but be aware, your wingman and or flight mates may use these at very random intervals, if they use them at all, so I would recommend only using them on your own aircraft. The AI does seem to sometimes have a wobbler, and do its own thing, just ignore it, and get on with flying, and rack up some kills,

  12. SF2 Dassault Epervier Upgrade Pack

    SF2 Dassault Epervier Upgrade Pack 4/5/2016
     
    = For SF2 (Full-4/5 Merged Reccomended) =
     
    *You =MUST= have the Mystere IVA avaiable in your merged installs, as the aircraft now references THIS cockpit. SF2:E is also required, at minimum, as the BLW aircraft now reference the stock 3W decals (F-104G), as does the French AdA skins.*
     
    Some modifications and capability upgrades for Cocas's fun little "What If.." Dassault Epervier (Sparrowhawk). If you do not have the aircraft, it's available at the following URL:
     
    http://combatace.com/files/file/15963-sf2-%C3%A9pevier/
     
    Obviously, you'll the need the aircraft to add the mod pack too!
     
    2 new skins have been added:
     
    Natural Metal
    2-tone Brown Desert
     
    Both the new skins carry French Air Force makings, and ALL skins make use of stock 3W decals.
    All markings are decals, making it easy for other nations/users to be created. It should be noted, the userlist ini included ONLY has France and WGermany. Others will have to be added by the End Users ™.
     
    As always, fairly easy to follow, detailed install instructions are included. So, please read them. The "Notes" section contains the full change log.
     
    Happy Landings!

  14. AN-2 "HEMAAR" V 2.0

    AN-2 "HEMAAR"
     
     
     
    HISTORY
     
    The I.P.A.F.A units needed a STOL capable aircraft, to enable resupply to forward units, and also a limited parachute drop capability. the perfect aircraft for this was deemed to be the AN-2 "Colt" The Parani Ministry of Defence, purchased a large quantity of these aircraft, to equip the army units. A small number of these aircraft were blacked out for use by the Parani Special operations Group. This aircraft has been in service with the I.P.A.F.A. since 1947, and is deemed still capable for use into the near future. As an additional role, the AN-2 has been fitted with bomb/rocket racks, and is capable of executing limited nuisance attacks.
    The Aircraft is much loved by its crews, and carries the name HEMAAR which means Donkey , its ease of maintenance and reliability, mean it is a very useful and flexible aircraft.
     
     
     
    Installation and blah blah
     
    I have included ( I hope) everything needed in one package, ie. the aircraft decals, weapons, pilots, and sounds. I have also included a SQADRONLIST.INI, and a NATIONS.INI to allow these birds to show up as a nation and with the correct markings. I have dropped all the respective files into their correct folders so, all you will need to do is unRAR/ZIP/7Z to your saved game folder, and allow overwrites ( if any) I have tested this on a full merged all bells and whistles SF2 so I assume it will work on unmerged too.as I said everything is there to get her up and running, just drop it all as is into your saved game folder and off you fly.
     
    I have made 3 different skins for the 2 Army Forward Aviaton Regiments, one of which is a Spec Ops colour scheme, and also one in civilian markings ( Parani Air America clone ? ) the cargo bay door operates by pressing whichever key you are using for the bombbay doors. the aircraft is able to carry light bombloads under the wings, however, be aware, she is slow lumbering, and very easy to shoot down !!
     
    This is the final update of this aircraft, I would advise removing any previous versions of the HEMAAR before installing this one, as there may be issues as the resolution has been raised slightly, I have also included lo res ( non wide screen ) screens for the hangar and the loading screen
     
    CREDITS !!!
    Credit for the original model and workings to whomsoever was involved in the original aircraft. I have just played around and tweaked a few things. I could not have done this for you to enjoy without the initial hard work by the likes of Mr Wrench, Mr Paulopanz and all the other fantastic modders on here to numerous to mention, I am an amateur just dipping my toe in a very deep pond !!!
     
    This is the 4th Aircraft from the Parani Army and the final one for this set, I shall be doing Navy and Airforce aircraft next, so keep your mk 1's peeled, for more Parani lovliness................ENJOY !!

  15. DHIMAR SABRE PACK

    After seeing the effectiveness of the F-86F Sabres in the hands of the USAF over Korea, the Dhimaris made overtures to the Americans to buy F-86's, however as the Dhimaris had close ties with the UK, they eventually settled on buying the licence built Mk-4 which was in use at the time by the Canadian and British Air forces, they eventually purchased MK-4 airframes for the Ground attack/interdiction role, and later on the MK-6 for a pure fighter /interceptor . They foung the engine and avionics fits , were more suitable for Dhimari needs, and used these aircraft until the early 60's with great success.

  16. Blackburn Shark F.1

    SF2 "What If" Blackburn Shark F.1 3/9/2016
     
    *= For SF2 -ONLY-!! Full-5 Merged Reccomended =*
     
    **NOTE! you MUST have the stock 3rdWire Meteor F8 as part of your merged install; this aircraft references this stock cockpit***
     
    This package contains a NEW "What If..." aircraft for Royal Navy Fleet Air Arm usage in the post-war (1948-1955) time frame. Everything is included, excpeting the cockpit, as noted above
     
    Skins included are for the following FAA units:
     
    No.763 NAS (HMS Victorious)
    No.803 NAS (HMS Ark Royal)
    No.893 NAS (HMS Centaur)
     
    Markings are (pretty much) correct for the late-post WW2 time frame.
    All 3 skins use a 'pool' of plane-in-squadron and serial numbers. There are 24 of each. All markings are decals, and decal randomization is TRUE. In the decals folder are several other "CV tail codes", and a blank create more, if one wished to do so.
    The aircraft is fully carrier certified. All weapons used are stock 3W items - hence the need for Full-5 merged.
     
    As always, fairly easy to follow, yet detailed install instructions are included. PLEASE read them!!! Also, as usual, give the "Notes and Comments" section a read, too.

  18. McDonnell Douglas Eagle F.1 - RAF ('what if')

    McDonnell Douglas Eagle F.1 - RAF ('what if')
     
     
     
    With delays in the Tornado ADV program the RAF desperately needs to replace its aging and out classed air defense Phantom and Lightning squadrons. As a stop gap measure the RAF lease squadrons of F-15A Eagles from the USAF. They are modified to fire Skyflash missiles and given the name 'Eagle F.1' in RAF service.
     
    Mod uses stock TW RAF F-4M decals for squadron markings so you can select other squadrons.

    BACKSTORY
     
    Along with the upgrade of the Lightning F.2's of RAF Germany the earlier Lightning F.1A's and F.1B's were upgraded to a similar standard emerging as the Lightning F.1C. Entering service with No.56 Squadron in 1968 the final squadron to operate the type was No.111 whose aircraft wore this black retirement scheme during 1977.
     

    INSTRUCTIONS
     
    1. From the AIRCRAFT folder drag and drop the Lightning1C folder into your Aircraft folder.
     
    2. From the DECALS folder drag and drop the Lightning1C folder into your Decals folder.

  21. [Fictional] Hawker Hunter FGA.9A RAF 'Desert Pink'

    Hawker Hunter FGA.9A for STRIKE FIGHTERS 2
     
    This is a very simple mod of the stock Third Wire Hawker Hunter FGA.9 to give a fictional Hawker Hunter FGA.9A fighter-bomber aircraft as it might have appeared in service with the Royal Air Force during the 1960's to early 1970's period with RAF Middle East Command and 'what if' markings are included for;
     
    No.8 Squadron
     
    No.20 Squadron
     
    No.43 Squadron
     
    In reality, all three squadrons have an association with operating the FGA.9 in the Middle East area during the 1960's but I've banged them together as a three-squadron wing and clad them in this 'Desert Pink' scheme initially adopted in 1961 for the Kuwait Crisis and then kept for their extended operations in Aden and Dhimar.
     

    INSTRUCTIONS
     
    1. From the AIRCRAFT folder drag and drop the HunterFGA9A folder into your Aircraft folder.
     
    2. From the DECALS folder drag and drop the HunterFGA9A folder into your main Decals folder.
     

    CREDITS
     
    Special thanks to ndicki for his superb Hunter templates used by me to create this 'Desert Pink' scheme.

  23. Fiat G55 "RAHMI"

    FIAT G55 "RAHMI"
     
    HISTORY
     
    While the "Western Infidel War " was in progress tensions between the Imperial State of Paran, and the Dhimari Principality, were at a high level, with small skirmishes and clashes on the borders. Paran managed to acquire some Fiat G55's from various sources ( not all of them legal) and equipped its number 1 Squadron, named the Huntress squadron, with these aircraft. 1 Squadron used these Fiats until 1947 when they re equipped with the S-199 SAIF, the remaining G 55's going into storage. Along with these aircraft and the S-99 ( Bf-109 G10) Parani fighter pilots learned their trade, and to great effect. The aircraft was given the name RAHMI or Lancer
     
    Installation and blah blah
     
    I have taken the existing Fiat G 55 and repainted it, you will noticed that the original marking ( Italian ) have been over painted and the Parani markings placed over the top, this has been done on purpose, to make these aircraft look like they were ex Italian airforce, and still retained their original markings, personally I think it looks pretty good done this way, so if you can see the original Italian insignia on the wings and tail, this is done on purpose, and not because of any rubbish painting on my behalf. I wasn't going to be doing any early aircraft for Paran/Dhimar, but a couple of people have expressed an interest in earlier aeroplanes, so this is the first one. As with all my uploads I hopefully have included everything you need , including the guns, as apparently some of you guys have had issues with guns not working, so now you have 'em, they will work !! I also advise you update your Soundlist files to reflect the sounds I have included with this package.

  24. LI-2 "HESSAN"

    LI-2 "HESSAN"
     

    HISTORY
     
    Whilst the I.P.A.F.A. had been equipped with the AN-2 HESSAN, it was felt the requirement for the I.P.A.F. was more important and in need of a larger aircraft. So licence built copies of the C-47 Skytrain were purchased, from the USSR this aircraft the LI-2 CAB was issued to 2 squadrons of the I.P.A.F. Number 6 Squadron being a special ops unit, strangely, the name HESSAN was retained for this aircraft, mening that 2 different aircraft types bore the same name , although the were completely different airframes, it was felt the nomenclature HESSAN, or Horse, was applicable in both case ( In reality I cocked up, and forgot I already named the AN-2 the HESSAN, and I'm too lazy to change the names over !! ) As we all know the C-47 and its derivatives, are a long lived and popular aircraft still in wide use today.
     
     
     
    Installation and blah blah
     
    A repaint of the LI-2 with 2 skins for 5 and 6 Squadron of the I.P.A.F. No special information is needed for this aircraft, as with all my other uploads hopefully I have included all you need. ENJOY !!

  25. Avia S-92 "SAQR"

    AVIA S-92 "SAQR"
     

    HISTORY
     
    When the Parani Ministry of Defence approached the Avia company to purchase its S-199 and CS-199's, mention of purchasing Jet powered aircraft was made. The Avia Company, had acquired the plans and technical details of the ME-262, and had commenced production of their own version of this aircraft. The Parani MOD realised that this would be a cheap and cheerful way of breaking into jet powered machines, and, so, purchased a batch of the Avia S-92's they however asked for the original 4 gun pack to be replaced as they felt that just the 2 guns as fitted in standard S-92's was inadequate. The aircraft entered service in 1946 , and were in operational service up until the mid 50's with number 4 Squadron I.P.A.F. The Aircraft was given the name SAQR or Falcon, and was held in great admiration by the pilots that flew this aircraft.
     

    Installation and blah blah
     
    A repaint of the Avia S-92 no special information is needed for this aircraft, as with all my other uploads hopefully I have included all you need to make the Stormbird fly. ENJOY !!
