    2. CT-156 Harvard II

      CT-156 Harvard II for SF2
       
      ______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
      Based on the T-6C Texan II made by dtmdragon (which is based on Dels work).
       
      Original dtmdragon plane can be found here : http://combatace.com/files/file/15102-raytheon-t-6c-texan-ii-for-sf2/
      ______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
       
      This is the CT-156 Harvard II as used by the RCAF 15th Wing for the SF2 series of games.
       
      To be used on dtmdragon T-6C Texan II ONLY. (have not been tested on Dels planes as the PC-9, AT-6B and T-6A, but some if not all MIGHT work).
       
       
       
       
       
      The CT-156 Harvard II is a variant used for pilot instruction in the NATO Flying Training in Canada (NFTC), located at 15 Wing, Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan. They are leased to the Royal Canadian Air Force by the program's administrator, CAE. NFTC's Harvard II aircraft are almost identical in cockpit layout and performance to the American JPATS Texan IIs. Within NFTC, students fly the Harvard II in Phase 2 and 3 of the training program, and some will go on to fly the CT-155 Hawk jet trainer also used by NFTC for Phase 4 (Moose Jaw) and Phase 5 Fighter Lead-In Training (4 Wing, Cold Lake, Alberta). NFTC had 25 Harvard II aircraft owned and maintained by Bombardier, although one was lost following a non-fatal crash in 2011. CAE took over the program in 2015.
       
      Although the CT-156 is a version of the T-6A, i prefered to use the T-6C Texan II in order to get the version with wing hard points, intelligence/ surveillance/ reconnaissance capabilities, a digital glass cockpit that includes a Head-Up Display, six multi-function displays, Hands On Throttle And Stick. Also, you may use weapons with it while the real aircraft is not intended to use some (in the RCAF).
       
       
       
      These skins represent the scheme used by the RCAF on their CT-156 trainers along with the ''vintage'' scheme use on aircraft 120.
       
      The serial numbers in this skin pack along with planes numbers are real one's.
       

      You will get the following skins in this package :
       
      15 Wing :
      Serials 156101 to 156126 (except 156120) : Regular scheme
      Serial 156120 : Vintage scheme
       
       
       

      Two installation choice :
       
      SKINS ONLY (assuming you have the dtmdragon T-6C already installed):
       
      Copy the FOLDERS of the current pack objects/aircraft/CT-156/RCAF AND RCAF(156120) folder in your game T-6C aircraft folder.
      Copy the FOLDERS of the current pack decals/CT-156/RCAF folder in your game T-6C decals folder.
       
      Open the Textureset.ini and edit the file by adding the texture.ini lines. Don't forget to change the file path accordingly.
       
       
       
      COMPLETE AIRCRAFT :
       
      Copy the CT-156 aircraft folder content to your game aircraft folder.
      Copy the CT-156 decals folder content to your game decals folder.
      Copy the CT-156 pilots folder content to your game pilots folder.
      Copy the CT-156 weapons folder content to your game weapons folder.
      Copy the CT-156 sounds folder content to your game sounds folder.

    3. 69th TFS F-16C Block 40

      Hi this was my first attempt to add decals on the "Viper Team's" F-16C Block 40. They have the correct tail numbers for their time in Operation Desert Storm. They were from Moody AFB, GA 347th FW. They served along side with 4th TFS and 421st TFS under the 388th Tactical Fighter Wing Provisional in Desert Storm. Enjoy!!!

      Copy the F-14A_82 decals folder content to your game F-14A decals folder.

    17. Strike Eagle FM and Loadout Enhancement Kit

      3.3- Added F-15I_Raam decals folder as it occurred to me not everyone has that specific Raam decal folder name
       
      3.2-Fixed an error in the F-15I Ra'am's AIrcraftdata section and updated all variant's gross weight's thanks to Fanatic Modder bringing to my attention that the wing pylons weights were added twice to the aircraft's mass. Also more refinements to the AI statements for happy wingmen!
       
      3.0- Best update yet! Redone AI statements for all Strike Eagle Variants, your wingmen and all AI will finally be able to drop dumb bombs on target! Also fixes AI strafing runs and the Strike Eagles will be able to strafe ground targets with accuracy! Also added some nice hanger and loading screens to the F-15SG as some extra eye Candy! Enjoy your new wingies!
       
      Update 2.5-Fixed CBU Attack loadout! Updated FM even more! Suggestions always welcome!
       
      This is a FM and loadout enhancement package first started by Crusader to kinda bring the Strike Eagle family more up to date with recent advances in SF2 modding ability! This mod changes the order of release for the CFT weapon stations and allows for more customized loadouts in the loadout menu before a mission. These changes along with a new STRIKE loadout of MK82's allows the AI to more easily hit a target. The FM changes are just updates to the FM and more realistic gross weights/Loaded weights etc and should help the AI better manage Flying the Strike Eagle and all its variants. Small updates were also made to the LANTIRN systems of all the jets. Also is an updated F-15i skin touched up by me. This pack covers the F-15 Strike Eagle variants from FastCargo's F-15 Super Pack including the
      F-15E
      F-15E_04
      F-15I
      F-15K
      F-15S
      and F-15SG
       
      Now we just need a new strike eagle cockpit!
       
      Thank you especially to Fastcargo for his F-15 pack and crusader for starting the FM mod, and anyone else who has contributed to the F-15's and everyone on CA!
      If I've messed anything up feel free to PM me and I can see what I can do to fix the issue! Happy SCUD Hunting or Iranian nuclear bunker busting!

    23. VF-41 F-14A Sukhoi Killers

      F-14A VF-41 Black Aces Skin by Dave
       
      While on deployment in the Mediterranean Sea on August 19, 1981, during a routine combat air patrol mission over the Gulf of Sidra, two Libyan Su-22 “Fitter” aircraft were shot down by Black Aces aircraft. The incident marked the first Navy air combat confrontation since the Vietnam War and the first ever for the F-14A Tomcat. It was the first time a variable wing geometry aircraft shot down another variable wing geometry aircraft. 1981 was also the first year in which the Black Aces won the COMNAVAIRLANT Battle Efficiency "E", signifying them as the most efficient squadron in the Atlantic Fleet. VF-41 was also awarded the Battle “E” in 1985 and 1989.
       
      The 2 Sukhoi killers are in there too.

    25. Boeing 767 Skin Pack

      Boeing 767 Skin Pack
      by daddyairplanes
       
      This is a mod to add multiple airlines to Veltro2k's 767 airliner. This mod also adds
      the airliner nation and formation so that a stream can be generated in game.
       
      ********************************* NOTICE ************************************
       
      This mod displays several airlines at once on the same skin. I use a few tricks in ini editting and tga work to do this. this mod is partial free use, just do not add a complete other skin to it for a new airlines. Any additional airlines requested I am willing to make within the system i have set up. I set this up mainly to have better eye candy on the ramps, not see a dozen of the same airline.
       
      IF you have a request, pm me and i will knock it out for you asap, or teach you how to make the tgas.
       
      *********************************************************************************
       
      INSTALLATION
      Download V2k's 767 mod available here: http://combatace.com/files/file/15041-boeing-767/
      Download. Unzip. Place into mods folders. Allow overwrites.
       
      Known Issues
      The aircraft is abit slow to accelerate. Also the cockpit leaves much to be desired That said, this is best left as AI eye candy to run intercept or escort on, or be
      pleaseantly suprised when taking off from the airfield.
       
      Stock terrain edits are included so this mod shows. Additional editting will be needed to show in other terrains like Desert3 until the original modder chooses to add it in.
      BE CAREFUL IF YOU HAVE AN EDITTED STOCK TERRAIN!!!
