  1. SF2_MiG19SK

    The MiG-19SK by CAF team, 3d work by Cocas, skins by Nyghtfall, other work by Coupi, testing by Stratos, Coupi, Wrench, Nyghtfall.
    Some Background:
    After the success of the Soviet Union’s first carrier ship, the Moskva Class (Projekt 1123, also called „Кондор“/„Kondor“) cruisers in the mid 1960s, the country became more ambitious. This resulted in Project 1153 Orel (Russian: Орёл, Eagle), a planned 1970s-era Soviet program to give the Soviet Navy a true blue water aviation capability. Project Orel would have resulted in a program very similar to the aircraft carriers available to the U.S. Navy. The ship would have been about 75-80,000 tons displacement, with a nuclear power plant and carried about 70 aircraft launched via steam catapults – the first Soviet aircraft carrier that would be able to deploy fixed-wing aircraft.
    Beyond this core capability, the Orel carrier was designed with a large offensive capability with the ship mounts including 24 vertical launch tubes for anti-ship cruise missiles. In the USSR it was actually classified as the "large cruiser with aircraft armament".
     
    Anyway, the carrier needed appropriate aircraft, and in order to develop a the aircraft major design bureaus were asked to submit ideas and proposals in 1959. OKB Yakovlev and MiG responded. While Yakovlev concentrated on the Yak-36 VTOL design that could also be deployed aboard of smaller ships without catapult and arrester equipment, Mikoyan-Gurevich looked at navalized variants of existing or projected aircraft.
     
    While land-based fighters went through a remarkable performance improvement during the 60ies, OKB MiG considered a robust aircraft with proven systems and – foremost – two engines to be the best start for the Soviet Union’s first naval fighter. “Learning by doing”, the gathered experience would then be used in a dedicated new design that would be ready in the mid 70ies when Project 1153 was ready for service, too.
     
    Internally designated “I-SK” or “SK-01” (Samolyot Korabelniy = carrier-borne aircraft), the naval fighter was based on the MiG-19 (NATO: Farmer), which had been in production in the USSR since 1954.
    Faster and more modern types like the MiG-21 were rejected for a naval conversion because of their poor take-off performance, uncertain aerodynamics in the naval environment and lack of ruggedness. The MiG-19 also offered the benefit of relatively compact dimensions, as well as a structure that would carry the desired two engines.
     
    Several innovations had to be addresses:
    - A new wing for improved low speed handling
    - Improvement of the landing gear and internal structures for carrier operations
    - Development of a wing folding mechanism
    - Integration of arrester hook and catapult launch devices into the structure
    - Protection of structure, engine and equipment from the aggressive naval environment
    - Improvement of the pilot’s field of view for carrier landings
    - Improved avionics, esp. for navigation
     
    Work on the SK-01 started in 1960, and by 1962 a heavily redesigned MiG-19 was ready as a mock-up for inspection and further approval. The “new” aircraft shared the outlines with the land-based MiG-19, but the nose section was completely new and shared a certain similarity to the experimental “Aircraft SN”, a MiG-17 derivative with side air intakes and a solid nose that carried a. Unlike the latter, the cockpit had been moved forward, which offered, together with an enlarged canopy and a short nose, an excellent field of view for the pilot.
    On the SK-01 the air intakes with short splitter plates were re-located to the fuselage flanks underneath the cockpit. In order to avoid gun smoke ingestion problems (and the lack of space in the nose for any equipment except for a small SRD-3 Grad gun ranging radar, coupled with an ASP-5N computing gun-sight), the SK-01’s internal armament, a pair of NR-30 cannon, was placed in the wing roots.
     
    The wing itself was another major modification, it featured a reduced sweep of only 33° at ¼ chord angle (compared to the MiG-19’s original 55°). Four wing hardpoints, outside of the landing gear wells, could carry a modest ordnance payload, including rocket and gun pods, unguided missiles, iron bombs and up to four Vympel K-13 AAMs.
    Outside of these pylons, the wings featured a folding mechanism that allowed the wing span to be reduced from 10 m to 6.5 m for stowage. The fin remained unchanged, but the stabilizers had a reduced sweep, too.
     
    The single ventral fin of the MiG-19 gave way to a fairing for a massive, semi-retractable arrester hook, flanked by a pair of smaller fins. The landing gear was beefed up, too, with a stronger suspension. Catapult launch from deck was to be realized through expandable cables that were attached onto massive hooks under the fuselage.
     
    The SK-01 received a “thumbs up” in March 1962 and three prototypes, powered by special Sorokin R3M-28 engines, derivatives of the MiG-19's RB-9 that were adapted to the naval environment, were created and tested until 1964, when the type – now designated MiG-SK – went through State Acceptance Trials, including simulated landing tests on an “unsinkalble carrier” dummy, a modified part of the runway at Air Base at the Western coast of the Caspian Sea. Not only flight tests were conducted at Kaspiysk, but also different layouts for landing cables were tested and optimized as well. Furthermore, on a special platform at the coast, an experimental steam catapult went through trials, even though no aircraft starts were made from it – but weights hauled out into the sea.
     
    Anyway, the flight tests and the landing performance on the simulated carrier deck were successful, and while the MiG-SK (the machine differed from the MiG-19 so much that it was not recognized as an official MiG-19 variant) was not an outstanding combat aircraft, rather a technology carrier with field use capabilities.
    The MiG-SK’s performance was good enough to earn OKB MiG an initial production run of 20 aircraft, primarily intended for training and development units, since the whole infrastructure and procedures for naval aviation from a carrier had to be developed from scratch. These machines were built at slow pace until 1965 and trials were carried out in the vicinity of the Black Sea and the Caspian Sea.
     
    FROM NOW ON IS MY WORK. STRATOS.
     
    With the reception of the first new carrier in late 1965, the new aircraft began sea trials during the spring of 1966 and for summer the first planes were permanently deployed on board. The ship and it's planes began a cruise around the world doing good will port visits showing the flag and the new capabilities of the Soviet Navy. The carrier was permanently escorted by USN info gathering ships monitoring the capabilities of the new vessel and its air component.
    The first real deployment with combat ocured in the Pacific Ocean in 1969, in a dare move, the carrier slipped into the Yellow Sea during the night and launched it's aircraft at first light, the planes strike several military facilities in China mainland, specially around Shangai, and the first A-A combat took place when a pair of SK's engaged intercepting J-6 of the PLAAF while escorting strike armed SK's. All the soviets returned to the carrier that was already steaming to get out of the South China sea trough Tsushima straits.
    By early 1972, new models are being introduced into the fleet and the SK's started to show their age in the fast pace of aviation during Cold War, so as soon as the new models completed the air component the SK's were passed to train new naval pilots on the fleet training installations in Crimea, were it served with distinction until the last cells were too worn out to be safely operated beyond 1980.
    So the SK's story came to an end with the honor of being the first real combat aircraft onboard soviet carriers, and the plane that first tasted the blood for carrier based pilots.

  4. DH Osprey B.II

    De Havilland Osprey B.II by Cocas (what if...) 28/07/2017
     
    Some time ago I requested some updates to the original Osprey by Cocas, a refuelling probe, airbrakes, antenna on the fuselage... cocas made the mod and I made a new skin for strategical use with the RAF in AntiFlash white. As the Osprey B.II does not differ wildly from the I, I retained the original readme and completed with some historical background. As the plane was never used on the desert being based only in UK and Germany, I not included the desert scheme, but the one in the original Osprey will work. For the Malvinas campaign, the green euro cammo should be used.
     
    Model by cocas, new antiflash white skin by Stratos on cocas template, decals by Spinners. Thanks a lot guys!
     
    Background:
     
    Following the exit of the first version of the new De Havilland bird, the RAF aproached De Havilland with a request for a improved variant with Strategic bombing as its designed mission. The requirements were clear, a better range, a refuelling probe and a long range communication radio.
     
    De Havilland felt it was pretty easy to complete the task, as the requested features were already imagined for the Osprey, and added another one, big air brakes on the wings. the refuelling probe was a bit more complicated, as it was tested first on the starboard wing, but it was hard to use in flying, specially in bad weather conditions, so a reuleing probe over the cockpit was installed and tested. It came with the risk of spilling gas on the cockpit glass, but simplified the refueling maneuvers a lot, so it was finally selected as the choosen one. The new communication array was based on a dorsal antenna and new radio equipment to be controlled by the copilot, as the plane retained the three man crew.
     
    Finally bigger fuel tanks were installed and the new brakes air tested, those brakes improved maneuvers and shortened the landing run quite a bit, and then the prototype was sent to the RAF for testing. Plane was well liked by its crews and the RAf operated 49 of the birs in the nuclear bomber role, both based on UK and in RAf stations in Germany. During the first years the Osprey B.II used the classic Anti Flash white scheme, before converting to a regular cammo scheme as it was seen in the Malvinas campaign before retirement.
     
    On the following pics, we can see a recently delivered Osprey B.II in anti flash white belonging to the squadron flying low over the Mach Loop in Wales, training for low level nuclear attack runs on Warsaw Pact targets.

  5. F-4VS Phantom (What If..)

    SF2 McD F-4(VS) Phantom II (What If...)
     
    = 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 stock items, most importantly, F-4J cockpit. Therefore, it's vitally important that your game version has access to this cockpit.*
     
    The is the release of a new "What If..." aircraft by Cocas. This represents the F-4X (VS) variable geometry (or swing wing) Phantom if it had been constructed as a supplimentry aircraft to the F-14 Tomcat, for use on smaller carriers.
     
    The aircraft comes with the following skin/decal sets:
    USN Grey 1 (standard Gull Grey/White
    USMC Grey 1 (standard Gull Grey/White
    USN Lo Viz (TPS grey, semi-subdued markings)
    FAA Blue (standard Royal Navy Blue/White)
     
    All markings are decals, and decal randomization is TRUE. Weapons used are all stock 3W items. Skins are in jpg format, and damage textures are DDS.
     
    As all squadron markings, for the USN & USMC are decals, you may choose any Phantom squadron from the "squadron drop down" on the load out screen. Be Advised, however, some of the tail markings WILL fit better than others
     
    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!

    Comet KSK-aircraft "K". Experimental aircraft- analog cruise missile ?S-1. Comet Stalin.
    History:
     
    ...The first flight carried out analog test pilot Amet-Khan Sultan from the Air Force Institute Chkalov airfield in January 4, 1951, then the test was moved to the Crimean Air Force test site. From May began air starts counterpart aboard the Tu-4. Total participated in the testing of four aircraft "K", which Amet-Khan, S.Anohin, F.Burtsev, V. Pavlov and P.Kazmin completed 150 flights. With the transition to working out starts on the real target was adjusted guidance and control system "Comet" - an analog of relief after walking on the target, like a combat missile, and only in the final section of the pilot shut off homing, took it over and come back to the airfield. All flights went well, although the pilots consider them extremely difficult. In one such flight analogue Amet-Khan escaped suspension with an inoperative engine that could only run at the water, the other - at Burtsev turning off the autopilot and he hardly overpowering servos, barely able to turn away from the target ship...

  7. Fictional Romanian F-5E

    This is my first mod, so excuse the mistakes!
    Works in SF1&SF2 if you have the stock Mirage Factory F-5E installed, skins updated after Paulopanz Austrian skins.
    The aircraft is a What if... plane, supposedly the USA agreed to the Romanian request to sell F-5E Tiger II to SRR (Socialist Republic of Romania, the official name then) back in 1974-1975.
    At the time relations between Soviet Union and Romania were cold, the soviets were suspecting that SSR might jump in the PRC lap or even worse, defect to the USA sphere of influence.
    This ”what if” is based on an official Romanian request made in June 1975, after the exposing of the F-5E in the hands of the soviets due to the fall of South Vietnam.
    North Vietnam captured more than 50 such aircraft and 4 or 5 were shipped immediately to Soviet Union, the rest were used by VPAF.
    This give the arguments to the Romanian delegation to request the aircraft, motivating that the plane is now no longer a secret to the communist world.
    In the real life USA said no ...

  17. F-4T Phantom II Air Superiority Fighter - Ghost Grey Phantoms

    F-4T Phantom II Air Superiority Fighter 1.0
     
     
     
    The F-4T was a late 1970s proposal by McDonnell for a stripped F-4E optimized for the air superiority role. All air-to-ground capability was to be eliminated and associated equipment removed. The armament consisting solely of the built-in M61A1 cannon, the four belly-mounted AIM-7 Sparrow missiles, and the four wing-mounted AIM-9 Sidewinder missiles, or an alternative warload of six AIM-7. A digital computer was to have handled the weapons system.
    By the late 1970s, the Phantom was clearly old technology, and no customers ever expressed any interest in the F-4T. The project was abandoned before anything could be built. It was never clear but it was suspected that the proposal had been aimed at a particular potential export customer.
     

    BUT what if the F-4T had entered production, either in foreign service, or to supplement the F-15A, or even as a potential alternative to the F-16A ADF?
     

    And so I give you the F-4T Phantom II Air Superiority Fighter:
     
    - Base aircraft is the 'F-4E_79 TISEO & ARN-101' from Ravenclaw and co’s awesome F-4E USAF pack.
    - Deleted all air to ground weapons capability.
    - Each inner wing weapon station can carry either 2x AIM-9 or 1x AIM-7 or an ECM pod.
    - Empty weight, empty inertia and stall speed lowered to that of the stripped out Third Wire F-4F. This makes it probably the most maneuverable and best dogfighting F-4 Phantom models, other than the IAF Super Kurnass 2000 prototype.
    - Retained AN/ARN-101 antenna for long range navigation.
    - Retained TISEO for target identification.
    - Higher 'G' HPC center drop tank.
    - Cleaned up the ‘noises’ and shadows on the radar display to better represent the digital filtering of the Digital Scan Converter Group (DSCG) radar display later model F-4E were equipped with.
    - Added Pulse Doppler look-down function to the AN/APG-120 radar, as later model F-4E Phantom’s upgraded with the AN/AWG-10A digital fire control computer had this feature.

  18. [Fictional] English Electric Lightning F.3S Flygvapnet

    English Electric Lightning F.3S for STRIKE FIGHTERS 2
     
    This is a very simple mod of the stock Third Wire Lightning F.3 to create a fictional export version in service with the equally fictional 'Acro Blixt' aerobatic display team (based on the real world Acro Deltas) of the Swedish Flygvapnet. This little update simply introduces a regular squadron (F13) and adds a screenshot.
     
    It goes without saying that you must have the stock Third Wire Lightning F.3 in your install meaning that you must have Expansion Pack 2 for Strike Fighters 2 Europe.
     
    INSTRUCTIONS
     
    1. From the AIRCRAFT folder drag and drop the LightningF3S folder into your Aircraft folder.
     
    2. From the DECALS folder drag and drop the LightningF3S folder into your main Decals folder.
     
    3. From the PILOTS folder drag and drop the PILOT_ACRO folder into you main Pilots folder.
     
    4. From the WEAPONS folder drag and drop the Rb22 & Rb25 folders into your main Weapons folder.
     
    CREDITS
     
    Thanks to TK and Third Wire for the continuous improvement of a great little game/sim.

  20. 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

  21. SF2 DH Osprey B.1 Pack (What If...)

    SF2 DH Osprey B.1 Pack (What If...) 4/15/2016
     
    = 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, 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.
    The aircraft comes with 2 skins:
     
    RAF Euro
    RAF Desert
     
    All markings are decals, and decal randomization is TRUE. Weapons used are all stock 3W items. Skins are in jpg format, and damage textures are DDS. All other parts (pilots, seats) are supplied.
     
    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!

  22. [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.

  23. 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!

  24. MARTINSYDE G102 (D)

    MARTINSYDE G102 (D)
     
    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 !
     
    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 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.

So maybe best only to issue them to your self. 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.
