    1. SF2 WW2 ETO Spitfire 9e, 401 Squadron Skin Pak

      SF2 WW2 ETO Spitfire 9e, 401 Squadron Skin Pak
       
      -- Something for the WW2 ETO players --
       
      = For SF2 ONLY, Full-5 Merged (Reccomended/Preferred) =
      **SF2:E Expansion Pak 2 REQUIRED to have the Spitfire 9c**
       
      A reskinning of the stock 3W Spit 9e to 401 "City of Westmount" Squadron, RCAF during WW2 in Western Europe.
      Skins remain in their 'lorez' 512 size, and are still in bmp format. Decal randomization is set to TRUE. All marking on the aircraft, excepting the Sky fuselage band are decals. This will make it exceptionally easy for skinners to create other RAF squadrons of this time period.
       
      Included are modified data and loadout inis. See 'changes' in the Notes section for full listing. And, for you viewing pleasure, a brand NEW SF2-style Hangar screen. The assumption (oh! that word!!) is being made that you've already made the aircraft player flyable, so no cockpit bits are included. Neither is my "One Click Restore Main Ini" (patent pending).
       
      The canopy has been activated via the Standard Animation Keystroke ™, Shift/0
      No weapons or pilot figures are included; you should have them already.
       
      As always, fairly easy to follow, yet detailed install instructions are included. So, please read them. Also, give the "Notes" section a read too.
       
      These 2 Mk.IX skin sets should give the recently (re)relased FWs something to contend with!
       
      Happy Landings!!

    2. SF2 WW2 ETO BoB Hurricane 1A, 303 Squadron Skin

      SF2 WW2 ETO BoB Hurricane 1A, 303 Squadron Skin
       
      -- Something for the WW2 ETO players --
       
      = For SF2 ONLY, Full-4/5 Merged (Reccomended/Preferred) =
       
      *Note: it's quite possible it can be used in 1stGens, but this has not been tested. Those that
      do, well, let me know if worked!! <grin>**
       
      This pak contains the decals necessary to (re)create the Hurricane Mk.1A as used by No. 303
      Squadron (Polish) during the Battle of Britain.
       
      This ini/decal pak (as there's no skin included) is for Raven's Mk.1, available at the
      following url:
       
      http://combatace.com/files/file/13646-sf2-ww2-hawker-hurricane-ia-etobob-by-raven/
       
      As stated in the original aircraft release, it uses Brain32's "Multiple Use Skin Trik", and
      references the skin maps and other decals included in the above pak. Therefore, NO skin maps
      are included in THIS pak. So, you MUST have the original aircraft listed above to add this pack
      to.
      All that's really included in this pak are the inis, Squadron Code letter and squadron badge
      decals. Decal randomization is set to TRUE.
       
      As always, fairly easy to follow, yet detailed install instructions are included. PLEASE read
      them!!!
       
      Good Hunting!!

      A new skin for the TMF/ModMafia Spitfire Mk.1A, representing 603 "City of Edinburgh" Squadron around the time of the Battle of Britain.
       
      Like the original release of the TMF/MM Spit 1, it uses a pool of plane-in-group letters and serial numbers, so you MUST have to original release of the TMF/MM Spitfire Mk.1a to apply this pack to. The only thing different is the squadron code decal, XT.
       
      If you don't have this Spitfire, it's available at the following url:

      *There is a distinct possibility that this mod will work in SF/Wo* 1stGen game installs. After all, it's just a skin and decals!! However, the decal radomization will not be functional in SF/Wo* 1stGen game installs*

      This skin is still in bmp format, so it's usable in SF/Wo*. Decal randomization is TRUE. All the markings are decals, most of which (serials, plane-in-group letters) are reused from other skins sets
       
      As always, fairly easy to follow, highly detailed install instructions are included. So, please =READ= them.
      Also, give the "Notes" section a read too.

    7. Spitfire Mk22, Southern Rhodesian Air Force

      Spitfire F.22, Southern Rhodesian Air Force for SF2
       
      This will work only if you have installed DLC No. 29 AI Aircraft Pack 2, including the Spitfire F.22. Without this pack installed, you will not have the necessary model files.
       
      The SRAF received 22 Mark 22 Spitfires from Britain in 1951, and these were used to form two fighter squadrons until 1954 when they began to be replaced with Vampires. The final Spitfire was withdrawn in 1956; most aircraft were sold on to Syria, although SR64 and SR65 remained in Rhodesia. SR64 was subsequently rebuilt and restored to airworthiness but crashed in 1982, killing its pilot.
       
      This uses an essentially unmodified data.ini and loadout.ini as supplied in the initial DLC pack.Nationality entries have been changed to read 'Rhodesia' but are otherwise unchanged.
       
      Serials include 20 of the known serials for the two batches of Spitfires.
       
      There is some disagreement about the actual colour of these aircraft; some say High-Speed Silver, others pale grey-blue. I believe both are probably correct, as the aircraft will have been delivered in RAF Silver and may subsequently have been painted pale blue.
       
       
      Credits:
       
      The cockpit is by Kesselbrut and used with gratitude in accordance with the CA fair use agreement.
       
      I have no idea where the pilot came from, but thank you anyway!

    8. Spitfire PR.MkXI, RAF, 1943-45

      Spitfire PR.MkXI, RAF, 1943-45
       
      The unarmed MkXI photographic reconnaissance Spitfire came into service in early 1943, and was basically a modified MkIX airframe with a MkVIII retractable tailwheel and fittings for three cameras. Further modifications included leading edge fuel tanks and a larger oil tank in an enlarged chin fitted below the Rolls-Royce Merlin 61, 63, 63A or 70 engine. Early aircraft kept the original rounded rudder, while the second production batch had the later pointed type.
       
      The serial numbers included in this pack correspond to early production MkXI aircraft with the rounded rudder, all built during late 1942 or early 1943. As such, they can be used for missions dating from February 1943 until the end of the War. As PR Spitfires did not carry squadron codes, any PRU/PR Squadron may be represented.
       
       
      For use ONLY with SF2 including the Israel Expansion Pack. This will NOT work if you do not have the stock TW Spitfires installed and working.

    15. Spitfire MkIXe S-89, Czech Air Force, late 1940s

      Spitfire MkIXe S-89, 10th Air Regiment, Czech Air Force, Praha-Kbely, 1949
       
      When the Free Czech squadrons of the RAF (Nos. 310, 312, 313) returned to Czechoslovakia after the end of the War, they took their aircraft with them, specially repainted in Czech colours before their departure from RAF Manston. These aircraft were supplemented by a number of others bought from Britain, but with the arrival of the Communists in power in 1947, the S-89 as the Spitfire was known locally fell out of favour and was phased out in favour of Soviet types. Many Czech Spitfires were sold on to the new State of Israel.

    17. Spitfire MkVb, Op. Spotter, March 1942

      Spitfire MkVb, No.249 Sqn RAF, Takali, Malta, March 1942
       
      Malta stands in a key position in the middle of the Mediterranean, between Sicily and Libya, right on the main supply route for Axis forces in North Africa. For this reason, it came under constant attack from mid-1940 until late 1942 when the Allies took the initiative in North Africa. This is the longest siege in both British and Maltese history, and on 15th April 1942 King George VI awarded the island with the George Cross as a token of respect for its dogged and determined resistance.
       
      Initially, Malta was defended only by a handful of worn out Hurricanes which nonetheless gave a good account of themselves, but they were clearly not a match for the latest Bf109F fighters deployed by the Luftwaffe. The choice was simple - supply the island with Spitfires, or lose it.
       
      The difficult part of the operation involved actually getting the Spitfires to Malta in the first place. Shipping was being lost at an alarming rate, yet with the limited range of the Spitfire, flying them from Gibraltar was impossible. Finally, an underbelly slipper tank was designed, and a plan began to come together. The aircraft would be carried aboard HMS Eagle to a point off the Algerian coast from which they would be able to reach Malta with their last drops of fuel.
       
      The Spitfires were shipped to Gibraltar, assembled and made ready. The Eagle took them aboard and sailed to the fly-off point, dangerously close to a hostile coast... Only to find that the extra fuel tanks would not work owing to an undetected air-lock. The Navy was furious...
       
      On the second attempt on 7th March 1942, however, all aircraft bar one with fuel feed trouble took off successfully under the command of S/L Stan Grant, and flew the 660 mile journey to Malta without mishap. The way was open and Malta would survive.
       
      By the time the next delivery of a further 9 Spitfires took place two weeks later, only two of this initial batch were still airworthy.
       
      Serial numbers in this pack correspond to the aircraft used in Operation Spotter. All 16 were newly-built MkVb(T) aircraft, which explains their consecutive serial numbers. They were delivered in the typical Desert scheme of Midstone, Dark Earth and Azure Blue, and at the time of their epic flight, they did not yet carry individual letters. I have assigned these letters on a purely hypothetical basis as I have not been able to determine if they were in fact carried during service with 249 Sqn or not.
       
      For use ONLY with SF2 including the Israel Expansion Pack. This will NOT work if you do not have the stock TW Spitfires installed and working.
       
      Includes 2048 and 1024 size skin sheets.

    18. Spitfire MkVb, No.401 Sqn RAF, 1942

      Spitfire MkVb, No.401 (Canadian) Sqn RAF, Gravesend, May 1942
       
      Originally No.1 Sqn RCAF, the squadron became operational on Hurricane at Northolt in August 1940 after a period of in-theatre training. After the Battle of Britain, in which it was reasonably successful, it was moved to Prestwick in Scotland. Shortly after returning to the South to Digby in February 1941, it was renumbered to No.401 to avoid confusion with No.1 Sqn RAF. Spitfire MkIIs replaced the Hurricanes in September 1941, and were themselves replaced by MkVbs before the end of 1941. These aircraft remained until their replacement, in turn, with the new MkIX in the course of the late summer of 1942, making 401 one of the first squadrons to operate the MkIX. In October 1941, 401 had moved from Digby to Biggin Hill, carrying out offensive sweeps over Northern France.
       
      Serial numbers in this pack correspond to MkVb aircraft used by 401 Squadron during 1942, although many of these aircraft were on strength only for some days, for obvious reasons. Where a pilot has been identified as having flown a particular aircraft (The Royal Air Force did not attribute aircraft to particular pilots, although many did tend to have their favourites) that pilot has been listed in the menu. Aircraft of note are Pilot Officer Don Blakeslee's BL753 'H' and Pilot Officer Don Morrison's BM373 'F'. Aircraft appearing in the menu without an asterisk carry the correct individual letter for that aircraft.
       
      This Ocean Grey/Dark Green/Medium Sea Grey Day Fighter Scheme was introduced wef August 1941, although its implementation lasted up until at least the end of 1941. This original shade of Ocean grey, not to be confused with the shade standardised in mid-1942, was ordered to be mixed from seven parts Medium Sea Grey to one part Night and applied on-squadron. In practice, while it could vary wildly, it was generally darker than the later, factory-produced shade, and lacked the blueish hue. It is typical of the period running from late 1941 until the autumn or even winter of 1942.
       
      For use ONLY with SF2 including the Israel Expansion Pack. This will NOT work if you do not have the stock TW Spitfires installed and working.
       
      Includes 2048 and 1024 size skin sheets.

      After fighting throughout the Battle of Britain, during which it produced a number of noteworthy aces, No.92 stayed at Biggin Hill during the summer of 1941. This was the time when the RAF began its 'lean forward' into occupied France, effectively turning the tables on the Luftwaffe and finally taking the fight back to the Continent. In February 1941, No.92 was the first squadron to receive the new MkV Spitfire.
       
      The markings carried throughout 1941 included the Sky 'Fighter Command' band and spinner introduced in December 1940 and returned to the all-Sky undersides again after a brief period from December to April when the port wings of fighter aircraft were once again painted black. At this time, the spinner and band were in fact generally painted not Sky but Sky Blue for some reason; the correct Sky colour appeared more generally in the second half of 1941.
       
      Serial numbers in this pack correspond to MkVb aircraft used by 92 Squadron during 1941, although many of these aircraft were on strength only for some days, for obvious reasons. Where a pilot has been identified as having flown a particular aircraft (The Royal Air Force did not attribute aircraft to particular pilots, although many did tend to have their favourites) that pilot has been listed in the menu. Pilots of note included such well-known types as Brian Kingcome, Neville Duke, Titch Havercroft, Don Kingaby, Geoff Wellum, Trevor Wade and many others.
       
      For use ONLY with SF2 including the Israel Expansion Pack. This will NOT work if you do not have the stock TW Spitfires installed and working.
       
      Includes 2048 and 1024 size skin sheets.

    20. Spitfire MkIIa, No.308 (Polish) Sqn RAF, 1941

      Spitfire MkIIa, No.308 (City of Krakow) Sqn, Royal Air Force, Baginton, May 1941
       
      No.308 Squadron was the among first of the Polish fighter squadrons to be equipped with the Spitfire while based at Baginton in March 1941. This made the Poles the first Free Air Force to use the aircraft - a fitting tribute given the way they had performed during the later part of the Battle of Britain; No.303 (Kosciuszko) Sqn for example claimed more German aircraft shot down than any other Hurricane squadron - despite joining the Battle only at the end of August. The Poles, for whom the RAF was their third home after their own Air Force in 1939 and the French Air Force in 1940, had a reputation for extremely aggressive flying which the RAF did not altogether understand - but their results were eloquent, and they were given the Spitfires they craved.
       
      The markings carried in the late spring of 1941 included the Sky 'Fighter Command' band and spinner introduced in December 1940 and returned to the all-Sky undersides again after a brief period from December to April when the port wings of fighter aircraft were once again painted black. At this time, the spinner and band were in fact generally painted not Sky but Sky Blue for some reason; the correct Sky colour appeared more generally in the second half of 1941.
       
      Serial numbers in this pack correspond to aircraft used by 308 Squadron during May 1941, although many of these aircraft were on strength only for some days, for obvious reasons.
       
      For use ONLY with SF2 including the Israel Expansion Pack. This will NOT work if you do not have the stock TW Spitfires installed and working.

    21. Spitfire MkIIa, No.609 Sqn RAF, 1941

      Spitfire MkIIa, No.609 (West Riding) Sqn, Auxiliary Air Force, Biggin Hill, May 1941
       
      After fighting throughout the Battle of Britain, during which it was based at Middle Wallop and produced a number of noteworthy aces, No.609 moved to Biggin Hill in February 1941. This was the time when the RAF began its 'lean forward' into occupied France, effectively turning the tables on the Luftwaffe and finally taking the fight back to the Continent.
       
      The markings carried in the late spring of 1941 included the Sky 'Fighter Command' band and spinner introduced in December 1940 and returned to the all-Sky undersides again after a brief period from December to April when the port wings of fighter aircraft were once again painted black.

      Serial numbers in this pack correspond to aircraft used by 609 Squadron during May 1941, although many of these aircraft were on strength only for some days, for obvious reasons. Where a pilot has been identified as having flown a particular aircraft (The Royal Air Force did not attribute aircraft to particular pilots, although many did tend to have their favourites) that pilot has been listed in the menu. Two pilots of particular note were operational with the Squadron in May 1941; Australian ace F/L John Curchin usually flew P8098 'Z', the Enfield presentation Spitfire, and F/O John Bisdee P8264 'H' which carries his family's fleur-de-lys arms below the cockpit.

    22. Spitfire MkI, No.66 Sqn RAF, 1939

      Spitfire MkI, No.66 Sqn, Royal Air Force, Duxford, September 1940
       
      Operating from Duxford, No.66 was the second squadron after No.19 to convert to the Spitfire in November 1938. During early 1939, the highly coloured Type A1 roundels on the fuselage and mainplanes (see my 19 Sqn 1938 Spitfire) were toned down and replaced by more discreet Type B markings as here. Squadron codes were initially "RB" but during the reshuffle which took place in the course of 1939, these became the "LZ" codes which were subsequently carried throughout the War.
       
      The markings are typical of the period from early 1939 up until early 1940; although the uppersurfaces roundels remained of Type B until late in the War, fuselage roundels changed yet again at the beginning of 1940 to move back to red-white-and-blue Type A roundels. Black-and-white undersides were replaced by Sky according to AM Signal X915 of 6th June 1940. In common with many of the early Spitfires which were delivered with undersides painted Aluminium, this aircraft's ailerons were left in aluminium paint when the black-and-white scheme was applied. This was ostensibly to prevent "balancing problems" and is commonly seen on many fighter types of the immediate pre-War period.
       
      Serial numbers given in the menu list correspond to aircraft used by 66 Squadron during 1939.
       
      For use ONLY with SF2 including the Israel Expansion Pack. This will NOT work if you do not have the stock TW Spitfires installed and working.

    23. Spitfire MkI, No.19 Sqn RAF, October 1938

      Spitfire MkI, No.19 Sqn, Royal Air Force, Duxford, Autumn 1938
       
      The first operational RAF Spitfire was K9787 which arrived at Duxford airfield on 4th August 1938, followed by K9792 on 16th. 19 Squadron was tasked with getting up to 400 hours as quickly as possible onto these two airframes, in order to test the Spitfire's long-term serviceability. Other than some trouble caused by weak undercarriage legs, there was very little to report, other than a number of cases of a phenomenon called "Spitfire knuckle" - sometimes severely grazed on the inside of the fuselage while pumping the undercarriage up!
       
      These initial batches of Spitfires were finished on the uppersurfaces in the Temperate Land Scheme of Dark Earth and Dark Green, with Aluminium undersides. (It is worth noting that in the RAF, aircraft are systematically painted with Aluminium paint rather than left natural metal.) Unfortunately the SF game engine does not allow for specular layers, and so the undersides appear simply pale grey. The Type A1 roundels were soon replaced by more sombre blue-and-red B Types. Finally, the figure '19' in flight colours on the tailfin was applied only briefly, possibly only for a series of air-to-air photographs taken on 31st October 1938. Underwing serials were carried in the normal way.
       
      Serial numbers given in the menu list correspond to aircraft used by 19 Squadron during late 1938 and early 1939. Where a pilot has been identified as having flown a particular aircraft (The Royal Air Force did not attribute aircraft to particular pilots, although many did tend to have their favourites) that pilot has been listed in the menu.
       
      For use ONLY with SF2 including the Israel Expansion Pack. This will NOT work if you do not have the stock TW Spitfires installed and working.
       
      Includes 2048 and 1024 size skin sheets and new loading screen sounds.

    24. Spitfire MkI, No.54 Sqn RAF, May 1940

      Spitfire MkI, No.54 Sqn, Royal Air Force, Hornchurch, May 1940
       
      Operating from Hornchurch in Essex, No.54 was one of the Fighter Command squadrons tasked with defending the BEF and Royal Navy in Northern France, especially during Operation Dynamo, the withdrawal from Dunkirk. At this time, the squadron was led by S/L James Leathart, and included two Pilot Officers from New Zealand who were to make quite a name for themselves, namely Alan Deere and Colin Gray. Alan Deere's autobiography "Nine Lives" is well worth reading, and gives a clear idea of what it was like to be one of the Few, before, during and after the Battle.
       
      The markings are typical of the period and include the fin flash and underwing roundels which were used at the time only on those Home-based aircraft operating over the French mainland. Black-and-white undersides were replaced by Sky according to AM Signal X915 of 6th June 1940, although it would be mid-August at the earliest before significant quantities of this new shade were generally available.
       
      Serial numbers given in the menu list correspond to aircraft used by 54 Squadron during May 1940. In common with a number of fighter squadrons in 1939 and early 1940, however, 54 Sqn painted out the serial numbers on the aircraft, and the corresponding decals are therefore not included in this pack. Where a pilot has been identified as having flown a particular aircraft (The Royal Air Force did not attribute aircraft to particular pilots, although many did tend to have their favourites) that pilot has been listed in the menu.

    25. Spitfire MkIa, No.610 Sqn RAF, August 1940

      Spitfire MkIa, No.610 (County of Chester) Sqn, Auxiliary Air Force, Biggin Hill, August 1940
       
      No.610 Squadron received its Spitfires during late September and early October 1939, and moved to Biggin Hill on 8th July 1940 in time for the Battle of Britain. The Squadron stayed at Biggin until the very end of August, and bore the full brunt of the German offensive. By the end of August, it was utterly played out, and moved up to Acklington in Northumberland on 31st August.
       
      Serial numbers in this pack correspond to aircraft used by 610 Squadron during September 1940, although many of these aircraft were on strength only for some days, for obvious reasons. The individual letters and serial numbers of each aircraft correspond. Equally, where a pilot has been identified as having flown a particular aircraft (The Royal Air Force did not attribute aircraft to particular pilots, although many did tend to have their favourites) that pilot has been listed in the menu.
       
      The list is eloquent. Only two of the pilots listed survived unharmed. They majority of these men were under 25 years of age at the time of their deaths, and they made the ultimate sacrifice to ensure our freedom and independence today.
       
      This assumes that you have already installed the AvHistory Guns for SF2 and my 19 Squadron Spitfire MkI.
