  1. 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 !!

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  5. 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.

    BAC Lightning F.1C for STRIKE FIGHTERS 2 EP2
     
    This is a very simple mod of the Third Wire Lightning F.2A to give a fictional Lightning F.1C in an all black scheme.
     
    Please note that this mod requires you to have the excellent Strike Fighters 2 Expansion Pack 2.
     

    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.

  8. [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.
     
    And, finally, thanks to everyone in the wider Third Wire community.

  10. 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.

  11. 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 !!

  12. 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 !!

  13. La-15 "YAMMAM"

    La-15 "YAMAAM"
     

    HISTORY
     
    Pending the acquisition of Mig-17 / J-3 aircraft for the Parani air Force. a purchase of La-15's was made ( one of the last purchases from the USSR) the capability of this aircraft was similar to the Mig-15/J2 that was in use by the Army (I.P.A.F.A.) and it was felt that until Mig-17/J3 airframes could be acquired, that this aircraft was ideal as a temporary fighter/interceptor, with the additional idea that when the Mig's were in use that this aircraft would make a good primary jet trainer for pilots converting to Jet powered aircraft, so the front line service life of the YAMAAM ( Dove ) was quite short, and many Parani pilots cut their teeth on this type.
     

    Installation and blah blah
     
    Just a quick repaint of the LA-15 originally done by PC-Pilot. As with all my uploads, this is an all in one package, all the bits and bobs are there for you including PilotData ( for the Squadrons) and Nations.ini .So unpack to your saved game folder, it has been tested on a fully merged install. so I assume it will work on any non merged set ups too. So... off you jolly well pop, and go and shoot down some accursed infidel Dhimari !!!

  14. AVIA-CS-199 JANBIYAH

    AVIA-CS-199 "JANBIYAH"
     
    HISTORY
     
    When the Parani Ministry of Defence Purchased Avia-S-199 aircraft for the Air force, they also purchased a Squadron of CS-199's to act as a recce/cas aircraft. This was seen as ideal as it was a 2 seater, dual control aircraft, and was also then useful as a trainer for aircrews converting to the "SAIF" Number 2 Squadron was equipped with this aircraft, which was also reverse engineered to replace the nose mounted guns, as the underwing mounts for the original gunpods were needed to fit bomb racks, and it was felt that the pilots needed guns for strafing attacks , and also in the trainer role, for A-A and A-G training, even though there was a recorded issue with the synchronisation gear for these guns ( The Israeli's had a few incidents of shooting off their own props.....never a good idea !! ) As with the S-199 "SAIF" the JANBIYAH or Dagger, was only intended as a stop gap until the arrival of the expected Migs. however as a primary trainer, the aircraft is still in service, ( even though frontline service terminated in 1975) but the airframes are getting rather tired now, and new replacements are being sort after.

  15. AVIA-S199 "SAIF"

    AVIA-S199 "SAIF"
     

    HISTORY
     
    The Parani Air Force ( I.P.A.F.) had been using ex lufwaffe BF-109 G10's and the Avia S-99 since the end of the "Western Infidel War" and these airframes were getting tired and worn out, as they were usually second and third hand cast off, and ex "hangar Queens" which had been scavenged from many sources, When the IDF started using the Avia S-199 , the Parani Ministry of Defence liked what they had seen ( even though there were certain issues with this aircraft type) Early in 1947 they approached their Czech Military advisors, and acquired brand new airframes direct from Avia. One Squadron (Huntress Squadron) of the Imperial Air Force was equipped fully with the Avia-S-199 which was given the name of Saif, or Scimitar. intended as a stop gap aircraft, until the MIG-17 or J-3 was available, these aircraft actually remained in service up until the mid 70's.

  16. Fi156 "LUQLUQ"

    Fi156 "LUQLUQ"
     

    HISTORY
     
    Paran acquired a lot of Fi-156 Storch aircraft, over the years, and embarked on a programme of refurbishment and restoration, the result was the Fi156 LUQLUQ ( Stork ) this ubiquitous aircraft is in use with all 3 air arms of the Imperial Parani Military, its versatility, excellent STOL capability, and ease of maintenance, ensure its continuing service for the foreseeable future.
     
     
     




    Installation and blah blah
     
    This is just a basic re paint of the Storch , for all the Parani air power enthusiasts out there, there are 3 skins one for each service. 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.
     
    CREDITS !!!
    Credit for the original model and workings to whomsoever was involved in the original aircraft.

  17. YAK-23 "QATRAS"

    YAK-23 "QATRAS"
     
    HISTORY
     
    As the Navy had been using its YAK-9 NUHAS with much success it was deemed after operational evaluation that seiing as the Army was being equipped with JJ-2 ( Mig-15Bis) that the Navy needed a jet powered interceptor/point defence fighter, after evaluating the YAK-15, it was thought that the upgraded YAK-23 FLORA would be more suitable, with its tricycle undercarriage and slight upgrades to other systems, the aircraft was purchased through the Czech military mission based in Paran, as diplomatic ties with the USSR had broken down as mentioned in another description ( stay with the programme folks, download 'em all !! ) this aircraft was introduced into the First Marine Squadron , and was given the name QUATRAS, or Albatross. the aircraft was found to be ideal for the navy's needs as it introduced pilots to jet powered aircraft, and also secret experimentation with carrier landing and take off drills at a secret location deep in the desert , with a full mock up carrier deck. The aircraft was also much loved by its pilots, and was found to be very manoeuvrable and a good gun platform.

  18. YAK-9 "NUHAS"

    YAK-9 "NUHAS"
     

    HISTORY
     
    At the close of the "Western Infidel War" or the 1939-45 war to the west, Paran had become a wealthy nation, due to it's trade with oil and sand ( for sandbags ) to the everyone who wasn't at war with them ( no one) and disturbing sabre rattling from across the border on Dhimar, the Parani Ministry of Defence, embarked upon a programme of modernisation and re equipping of its various military units. The Navy formed Marine aviation units, with the view to eventually acquiring an Aircraft carrier, however as this was not an option at this time due to the trade in sand ( For sandbags) tailing off, but it was certainly a goal of the Imperial Military to procure at least one carrier at some point.
    The I.P.M.N.A. in the meantime needed equipping, the first aircraft purchased was the capable and reliable Yak-9 , named the "NUHAS" or Shrike in Parani service, this aircraft was seen as a dual purpose aircraft filling both the ground attack/CAS capability and also was a capable fighter in its own right, the 2nd Marine Squadron was thus equipped with this aircraft and used them to good effect for many years.
     

    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.
     
    original files by by Pasko & Wolf257, updated at some point to SF2 standards, with additional work from Wrench and Wilches. If I have missed anyone out I do apologise, you are thanked and credited in absentia. If you have downloaded any of my other Parani aircraft, you will know the drill, everything you require is in this rar file, so unpack it all....blah blah blah ( you know the drill.....I hope) no special instructions for this very nice looking aircraft, fly it, bomb stuff, rocket balst stuff, and shoot down stuff.....wizard prang !!

  19. The Other CF-105 (CF-105 Thunderchief)

    This is a what-if mod of the stock F-105D Thunderchief, with Sundowner's new high-resolution skins for the Royal Canadian Air Force/Canadian Armed Forces Air Command.
     
    Backstory
     
    During the late 1950s, Canada agreed to take on a nuclear strike role in NATO. The aircraft that took on this role would replace the Canadair Sabre. The RCAF considered several designs including the Grumman F11F Tiger, the Lockheed F-104G Starfighter, the Northrop N-156F, and the Republic F-105 Thunderchief.
     
    The F-105 variant offered to the RCAF was an F-105D equipped with an Orenda Iroquois engine. Two prototypes were constructed in 1959, using engines that had been constructed for the cancelled Avro Arrow. The marriage of Iroquois to F-105 was not a happy one. The Iroquois was an excellent engine when used operated at high altitude and high speed, the operating environment of an interceptor. When operated at transonic and supersonic speeds at low level, the engine proved unreliable. A catastrophic turbine failure at 400 ft and Mach 0.95 resulted in a fatal crash. This, combined with the escalating cost of developing the Iroquois forced the Government to cancel the Iroquois and opt for a standard F-105D. Canadian content was kept by having Pratt and Whitney Canada built the J75 engines under licence.
     
    With the Cold War heating up fast, the RCAF received its Thunderchiefs quickly. Five RCAF squadrons were equipped including 421, 422, 427, 439. and 441 Squadrons. For nuclear strike, their standard loadout was a Mark 28 nuclear bomb, two or four Sidewinders, and two drop tanks. The Thuds could also carry out conventional strike missions using a variety of bombs, missiles, and rockets.
     
    In 1965, the RCAF deployed 427 Squadron to RAAF Ubon in Thailand to operate beside the F-105s of 2 Squadron RAAF. Between 1965 and 1972, the Canadian and Australian Thunderchiefs bombed thousands of targets across North Vietnam.
     
    Upon their withdrawal from Vietnam, the CF-105 Thunderchiefs returned to Europe. The Trudeau Government removed their nuclear strike mission, leaving them as conventional strike aircraft only. For this reason, all the CF-105s were painted dark green, and given the new "symmetrical" marking scheme. The aircraft were refurbished after Vietnam to give them another ten years of life, and recently retired Thuds from USAF stocks replenished Canadian losses.
     
    The Thuds remained in Canadian Service until 1984, when they were replaced by the CF-18. The CF-105G Wild Weasel continued until 1987.
     
    Skins
    RCAF Natural Metal - Initial skin, natural metal with RCAF Markings. RCAF SEA Camo - Introduced in 1966 for Canadian Thuds deployed to Vietnam. Standard RCAF markings. CAF Natural Metal - Used in Europe & Canada after 1968. CAF marking scheme. CAF SEA - Used in Vietnam after 1968, and introduced in Europe during depot maintenance. CAF marking scheme. CAF Green - Dark Green scheme used in Europe after 1973. Symmetrical marking scheme. Remained until retirement.

    The F-105D has only the RCAF skins. All skins are offered for the F-105D_66
     
    Installation
     
    Copy the contents of ModFolder into your mod folder. Merge/overwrite when prompted.
     
    Notes
     
    This mod contains a Squadronlist.ini file. If you do not wish to alter your own, then you should add the following into your squadronlist.ini:
     
    [squadron569]
    Name=421CAF
    DisplayName=No. 421 Squadron
    Nation=Canada
     
    [squadron570]
    Name=422CAF
    DisplayName=No. 422 Squadron
    Nation=Canada
     
    [squadron571]
    Name=427CAF
    DisplayName=No. 427 Squadron
    Nation=Canada
     
    [squadron574]
    Name=439CAF
    DisplayName=No. 439 Squadron
    Nation=Canada
     
    [squadron575]
    Name=441CAF
    DisplayName=No. 441 Squadron
    Nation=Canada
     
    Should these numbers not correspond with those in your squadronlist.ini, then change the numbers on the file, and the filenames of the SQN decals accordingly.
     
    In order to get the correct roundel and Canadian flag, you can change the active date for Canada in your nations.ini from 1968 to 1965. This means that in the menus, you will see "Canadian Armed Forces" three years early, but in the sim, you will get the present Canadian flag and the stylised maple leaf roundel used today.
     
    To access nuclear weapons for Canada, I recommend making nation specific version of the various US nuclear weapons (e.g. Mk43_Canada), rather than making them exportable.
     
    To make your own F-105 skins, use Sundowner's templates: http://combatace.com/files/file/14427-hi-res-tw-f-105d-templates/
     
    No apologies for being cheeky with the designation CF-105.

  20. F-39A/B Griffin Blk 1/5 - Gripen NG for the US

    Gripen NG for the United States – F-39A/B Griffin Blk 1/5
     
    1.0
     
    Due to a change in US government policy driven by cost overruns, project delays and negative public (aka voter) opinion the USAF F-35A order is halved. To make up the shortfall a cheaper 4.5 generation aircraft is sought to replace the rest of the F-16 fleet.
     
    New built F-16s are considered but ultimately a license built US specific version of the Gripen NG is chosen. To help offset the loss of the cancelled F-35 order Lockheed Martin is awarded the contract to build the F-39 along with the US specific modifications. The most important of which is full data/ sensor integration and cooperative war fighting with the F-35A fleet.
     
    The USAF designate the US built Gripen the F-39A/B Griffin. The first Block 1 Griffins off the Lockheed Martin production line are identical to the JAS-39E/F and equip CONUS Air National Guard units to replace the F-16 in the air sovereignty role. At the same time Lockheed Martin produce a handful of developmental airframes to integrate the full USAF arsenal of weapons and apply some of the technology from the F-35 program. The probe air-to-air refuelling system is also replaced with a flying boom receptacle. The end result is the F-39A/B Block 5 which is used to replace the F-16 in those USAF units that are not going to be equipped with the F-35A. The Block 5 Griffin is fully compatible with the F-35 and shares the same data link technology. This means Griffin equipped units can be used cost effectively in the low intensity warfare role but when required can be ‘force multiplied’ by the F-35A in a modern battlefield. All Block 1 aircraft will be upgraded to Block 5 standard.
     
     
     
    Included in this mod are:
     
    - F-39A Block 1 Griffin
     
    - F-39B Block 1 Griffin
     
    - F-39A Block 5 Griffin
     
    - F-39B Block 5 Griffin
     
    - F-39A Block 5 Griffin Aggressor
     
    - F-39B Block 5 Griffin Aggressor
     
    - 14 different USAF/ANG squadrons
     
    - 22 different skins
     
     
     
    To Install simply un pack and drop into your mods folder.
     
     
     
    Notes:
     
    - The Block 1 aircraft have a reduced weapons capability compared the Block 5 as they can only carry the weapons currently cleared on the Jas-39 Gripin (Aim-9M, Aim-120C etc) this is reflected in the loadout.ini.
     
    - The pilot is a re-skinned JHMCS model to look like the Cobra HMD that is integrated with the Gripin (see last screenshot below).
     
    - F-39B Block 5 Aggressor has a cannon even though the two seater doesn’t have one. This is for game play so it will engage you as an aggressor aircraft.

  21. AN-2 HESSAN

    AN-2 HESSAN
     

    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 HESSAN which means Horse , 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.
     
    This is a quick and dirty repaint of the original AN-2 with marking etc for an aircraft in Parani service, there are 2 different skins for the 2 Army Forward Aviaton Regiments, one of which is a Spec Ops colour scheme, the cargo bay door operates by pressing whichever key you are using for the bombbay doors, I assume you can drop para's out of it, but I have not found anything that does that, so on the load out screen that weapon station is greyed out.

  22. IL-10 "SHAKOSH"

    HISTORY
     
    As the Imperial Republic of Paran moved into a more prosperous, if uneasy peace with their neighbours in Dhimar, it was decided, that an upgrade of the Armed Forces was of paramount importance, up until 1946 the Parani Army, Air Force, and Navy had been equipped with obsolete cast off aircraft from the "Western Infidel " war of 1939 -1945 mainly equipped with old Soviet, and some Italian and German airframes, it was found that as the Dhimari's had started to upgrade their Air Forces, that the present equipment levels were sadly lacking and not overly capable, plus the cost of maintaining these elderly and war weary airframes was prohibitive in the least !
    The Paran Ministry of Defence, had been keeping a close eye on the activities in Korea, and they noted that the use of the upgraded IL-2's used by the Chinese and Korean Forces were very able and reliable weapons systems, as , also the Parani's had Czech Military advisors, the acquisition of Avia B-33 licence built IL-10 airframes was very viable and affordable. So began the long and successful career of the IL-10 (named SHAKOSH which means hammer In Parani ) in service with the I.P.A.F.A.

    I have included ( I hope) everything needed in one package, ie. the aircraft decals, weapons, pilots, and sounds.

    This is a quick and dirty repaint of the original IL-10 Beast with marking etc for an aircraft in Parani service, there are 2 different skins for the 2 Army Forward Aviaton Regiments, the load outs are for a mix of Czech and Soviet weapons, however they are date dependant, so some wont show up at certain dates, but that is not an issue as there are other weapons which are used instead, it helps if you have weapons packs etc in your install, but not 100% needed.

  23. Martin XB-51 Panther

    The Martin XB-51 was an American "tri-jet" ground attack aircraft. It was designed in 1945 and made its maiden flight in 1949. It was originally designed as a bomber for the United States Army Air Forces under specification V-8237-1 and was designated XA-45. The "A" ground attack classification was eliminated the next year, and the XB-51 designation was assigned instead. The requirement was for low-level bombing and close support. The XB-51 lost out in evaluation to the English Electric Canberra which entered service as the B-57.

  24. JJ-2 NIHLA

    JJ-2 "NIHLA"
     
    History
     
    In the late 1940's Paran had been a prolific buyer from the USSR, however, in early 1949, the Soviet Ambassador to Paran was caught in a compromising situation, and as it was seen as an insult to both the Emperor, and to his wifes, the offending party was escorted to the borders of Paran, after having an interview without coffee, with the Chief of Internal Security. Unfortunately this led to a cessation of trade between the USSR and Paran, so the Ministry of Defence was forced to look elsewhere for supplies of weapons, to defend against the dread Dhimar Sultanate . Lukilly the Chinese were making Migs under licence , so trade was opened with the Chinese in short order.
    After the initial success with the J-2 Dabur programme, and with the assistance an advice of the Czech military advisors, work was started on Converting the JJ-2 ( Mig-15 UTI) from merely a training airframe, to something a little more flexible. Thus the NIHLA ( BEE) project was started, the basic JJ-2 was fitted with a reconnaissance suite, and also upgraded to be able to carry the larger J-3 ( Mig-17) drop tanks.
    As the I.P.A.F.A. had already received deliveries of the initial J-2 Dabur's. it was decided that the JJ-2 Nihla would be the perfect aircraft to carry out the reconnaissance role for the Army.
     
     
     
    Installation and blah blah
     
    I have included ( I hope) everything needed in one package, ie. the aircraft ( you will need the Mig-15bis installed already to allow it to work) 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.

    the camera is activated by hitting pg up twice ( or whichever key you have assigned to your radar ) the loadout is defaulted to drop tanks only, as this IS A RECCE bird, and not really ideal as an attack aircraft, however, if push come to shove and panic is ensuing, the Nihla CAN me armed with limited ordanance, in lieu of drop tanks ( so beware, VERY short range) and that's about it, please enjoy. I hope to be doing some more Parani/Dhimari stuff so for all you desert warriors, I hope you enjoy 'em as much as I do

  25. J-2 "Dabur"

    J-2 "DABUR"
    History.
     
    In 1955, the Imperial Parani Defence Ministry placed an order with China to purchase Chinese built Mig15Bis ( J-2 ) At the time they had Czech military advisors, who passed on information about the modification programme to their own S-103 airframes to give more potency, and a better ground attack capability.
    The Parani aerospace bureau, quickly copied the specifications to the new J-2's. The resulting aircraft was designated J-2 " Dabur" (Dabur = Wasp) These aircraft were then passed onto the military for flight evaluation, and the results were mostly positive. It was decided by Parani High Command, that as the Air Force were going to be equipped with the J-3 (Mig 17) in the near future, that the J-2 airframes would be assigned to I.P.A.F.A. (Imperial Parani Army Forward Aviation ) units to supplement their existing fleet of IL-10's .
    These aircraft soldiered on until 1970, when a replacement was being looked into by the Defence Ministry.
