    4. F-5GN(Soviets)

      F-5GN(Soviets)  (What if)
      *****************************************************
      This mod is made for SF2.
      ----------------------------------------------------------
      I. History (fiction)
      In 1969 there were decisive elections in West Germany. In reality, the Social Democrats won.
      A new foreign policy followed and a period of reduction of tensions between East and West.
      WHAT IF, the other side had won?
      What if the conservatives had won and Franz Joseph Strauß (an old bavarian Commie eater) would have become Chancellor of the Federal Republic of Germany?
      And so it starts.
      In 1969 Strauß was elected as Chancellor. A period of rising tensions between East and West
       started. To protect the sea lanes between Europe and America the west german parliament Bundestag decided to build up a west german carrier force consiting of 3 carriers.
      The american gouvernment was pleased and offered to sell 3 carriers of the Essex class (subclass Ticonderoga).
      The first ship which was handed over was CV-34 Oriskany in 1969. Renamed in R-22 Theodor Heuss it was core of the first west german carrier group. 1973 CV-38 Shangri-La became R-23 Heinrich Lübke (later renamed in Walter Scheel) and two years later CV-45 Valley Forge became R-24 Gustav Heinemann.
      The americans offered A-4 Skyhawk and F-8 Crusader as planes for the carrier group. The Bundesmarine accepted the A-4, but rejected the Crusader, because the Bundesmarine wanted a more multi role capable plane, not only a pure fighter.
      At this moment Northrop entered the competition and offered a navalised version of the brand new F-5E Tiger. Under the designation F-5GN (German Navy) it should be produced in America and Germany. The west german government accepted the offer and the serial production of the F-5GN started. During flight tests on the way the US Marines decided, that it would be a good idea to replace their old F-8 Crusaders with F-5GN planes. So the F-5GN became a Marine plane.
      Later, when the Marines retired their attack carriers the surviving F-5GN were transfered to Top Gun school.
      1973 the government of South Vietnam demanded more F-5E Tigers to fight the communist forces. Because there was a shortage of F-5E the american leaders decided to send the first batch, which was intended for the Marines, to the Republic of Vietnam. So 40 F-5GN were handed over.
      On May 1st 1975 Saigon was taken by the communist forces. the war was over. 36 surviving F-5GN were captured by the north vietnamese. To pay war depts  Vietnam handed all 36 F-5GN and 12 F-5E to the soviets.
      In the USSR the planes were tested very hard. Finaly the decision was made to use the F-5GN in the Soviet Navy. The canceled carrier project Oriol was revitalized and in 1976 the first soviet carrier squadron was formed. The soviets modified only the RWR and the air to air missiles. Air to ground weapons were taken from captured stores in Vietnam.
      The US Navy realized very soon that the soviets had a new plane. Analysts believed, that the soviets copied the F-5GN and gave her the designation MiG-28.
      The F-5GN alias MiG-28 had only a short service time in the Soviet Navy.
      1982 the F-5GN was withdrawn from service. The reason was missing spare parts.
      Afterwards the planes were sold to Iran.

    5. Third Wire F-8 Crusader Upgrade & Enhancement

      This has been a labor of love for my all-time favorite fighter aircraft. The service period of this aircraft fits perfectly with the time period that the Strike Fighters 2 game engine gives its best: Gun armed jet fighters with short range missiles and early/ limited avionics.

      Changes:
      -    The ‘SF2V Air & Ground War Expansion v.2.0 Gold’ and ‘F-8 DATA & LOADOUT v1.0 update’ here at CA were used as a starting point for this project.
      -    Maximum G has been changed to 6.3 which is the airframe structural limit in all NATOPS publications.
      -    There are automatically operating ‘fake’ leading edge droops (slats) that simulates the pilot being able to lower them a few degrees with a button on the throttle for cruising flight and manoeuvring flight (aka dog fighting). By ‘fake’ I mean they are not player operated in SF2 or linked to the 3D model but the aerodynamic effect is realistically simulated. You will notice the droop indicator in the cockpit will change with them however. If they were manually controlled in the game the AI would not use them correctly.
      -    Single AIM-9 missiles and rails can be loaded instead of the Y-racks on all F-8 variants. This is done at the loadout screen (and by the loadout.ini file) it is set up so you cannot load single missiles/ rails and double missiles/ Y-racks at the same time.
      -    Cannons harmonized as per NATOPS manual and gun accuracy adjusted to real world levels.
      -    Adjustment to most decal positions and inclusion of Squadron codes on the wings.
      -    Additional details added to most stock skins.
      -    Additional squadron specific higher resolution skins with more accurate markings for that particular squadron.
      -    Included for F-8J (69) is a proposed SEA camo overpaint for the VF-211 aircraft on detachment at Udorn in early 1972 to school USAF pilots in Dogfighting. The repaint was initially agreed to but it would have added 1200lbs so it was abandoned. If you wish to use it and fly DACT against USAF Phantoms you can load the extra 1200lb at the load out screen via a unique station specific hard point.
      -    Overhaul of each data.ini and avionics.ini to bring them in line with the information in the F-8 NATOPS manuals, NATOPS supplements and F-8 Tactics manual.
      -    More detailed pilots and ejection seats.
      -    Fully compatible with ‘SF2V Air & Ground War Expansion v.2.0 Gold’ or Third Wire SF2V campaigns. 
      -    Additional year specific aircraft to better reflect physical and avionic changes. As well as correcting a few mistakes and omissions by Third Wire.
      -    Below is the list of aircraft and a few of the specific major changes you may notice in addition to the list above:

      F-8C 
      -    Missing radar symbology added and radar performance/ parameters corrected. The radar cursor for selecting a target is a long horizontal line that moves up from the bottom of the scope and is only adjustable in range and not azimuth to select a specific radar contact.
      F-8C (66)
      -    Same as above plus:
      -    This is the TW F-8D model modified into a F-8C in order for it to have the Y-rack Fuselage weapon rails.
      F-8D
      -    Missing radar symbology added including steering circle, aiming dot, break X and missile max range.
      F-8D (66)
      -    Same as above.
      F-8E
      -    Radar frame lock, range and shoot cue lights all completely changed and now function correctly. See screenshot for more information.
      -    Missing radar symbology added including range rate circle, which also doubles as the steering circle, aiming dot, break X and missile max range.
      -    Missile firing order and cockpit weapon station section dial corrected.
      F-8E (66)
      -    Same as above plus:
      -    Significant use of the AIM-9C as after a lot of research it turns out they were commonly carried over Vietnam in this period, notably by VF-211.
      F-8E(FN)
      -    Equipped with the nose mounted IRST system like the USN F-8D and E.
      -    This is the TW F-8J model modified into a F-8E(FN) as are all the below French Crusaders so the DLC is NOT required.
      -    Radar frame lock, range and shoot cue lights all completely changed and now function correctly. See screenshot for more information.
      -    Location of Matra R.530 missile rails corrected.
      F-8E(FN) (70)
      -    Same as above plus:
      -    The nose mounted IRST system is removed from all French aircraft.
      F-8P(FN)
      -    Same as above plus:
      -    17 F-8E(FN) are upgraded to extend their service life, included is the Sherloc RWR system.
      F-8P(FN) (94)
      -    Same as above plus:
      -    F-8P(FN) are fitted with a GPS navigation system and antenna.
      F-8H
      -    Retains the AN/APQ-83 radar from the F-8D but uses the physically larger and higher resolution cockpit radar display from the F-8E.
      -    Missing radar symbology added including steering circle, aiming dot, break X and missile max range.
      -    Radar frame lock, range and shoot cue lights all completely changed and now function correctly. See attached for more information. 
      -    Retains ALQ-51 ECM from the F-8D.
      -    Missile firing order and cockpit weapon station section dial corrected.
      F-8H (69)
      -    Same as above plus:
      -    Improved AN/APQ-149 radar fitted in place of the AN/APQ-83.
      -    Additional missing radar symbology added including separate larger range rate circle and separate smaller steering circle. 
      -    A lot of fleet F-8H around this period have had their Nose IRST system (temporarily?) removed.
      F-8H (74)
      -    Same as above plus:
      -    After the Vietnam war F-8H has the improved ALQ-100 ECM in a larger pod installed, and full cannon ammo capacity restored.
      F-8J
      -    Improved AN/APQ-124 radar installed.
      -    Radar frame lock, range and shoot cue lights all completely changed and now function correctly. See screenshot for more information.
      -    Missing radar symbology added including separate larger range rate circle, separate smaller steering circle, aiming dot, break X and missile max range. 
      -    Missile firing order and cockpit weapon station section dial corrected.
      F-8J (69)
      -    Same as above.
      F-8J (75)
      -    Same as above plus:
      -    In 1975 the remaining fleet F-8J (along with the RF-8G) receive the ALQ-126 ECM and ALR-45/50 RHAW RWR. The nose mounted IRST system is permanently removed.
      F-8J (75) [w RWR]
      -    Same as above except:
      -    The cockpit radar display functions as a Vector RWR and not a radar. This is because in real life the pilot could change the radar scope from displaying radar images or displaying the RWR images. The F-8J did not have a separate RWR display. There was a setting in which it would be displaying radar images but if a missile launch was detected the threat bearing line would be displayed flashing over top of the radar images. Not possible in SF2 unfortunately.

      To install:
      1, Unpack and drop into your main mods folder.
      2, Override when prompted.

      "Quarantine Approved - Essential Mods"
      This package contains a new aircraft, the McDonnell F2H-2 Banshee, as used by the US Navy during the Korean War. That being said, this package =ONLY= contains those units that participated in the conflict. There are 4 units (skins) included in this package. In chronological order:

      All markings, excepting squadron color bands, are decals. Decal Randomization is TRUE. 24 Modex numbers are supplied for each unit. The 24 'data plaque" BuNums are a pool shared among all the aircraft. Those units that are listed in the game's Squadron List, have their Displayed Name activated by my Patent-Pending 'Fake SqTail' decal. All weapons, sounds, and a pilot figure are supplied. New "box-art" style hangar and loading screens are also included, as is a spare "photo" style loading screen if you get bored with the painting.
      Wingfold and canopy operations are the Standard Animation Keystrokes (tm), Shift/0 (zero) for the canopy, and Shift/9 for the wings.
      When in-game, you'll see
      F2H-2 Banshee (V2K)
      on the aircraft selection drop-down list. This will diferentiate it from any other Banshees you may, or may not, have.
      As is always recommended, unzip to a temp folder or your desktop to give easy access to the rest of this readme for it's install instructions. Also, =PLEASE= read the 'Notes' section for other IMPORTANT information on in-game operations.
      Happy Landings!

    7. SF2 Lockheed RC-121D Pack by RussoUK

      SF2 Lockheed RC-121D Pack by RussoUK       8/20/2020
      -For SF2, Any and All (Full 4/5 Merged Reccomended)
      "Quarantine Approved - Essential Mods"
      This package contains a new aircraft, the Lockheed RC-121D Warning Star Airborne Early Warning and Control aircraft as used by the US Air Force.
      This aircraft comes complete with everything needed, and has skins that represent the following units, as is my habit one East Coast and one West Coast based units:
      960th AEW&C Sqdn, 551st AEW&CW, Otis AFB, MA
      963rd AEW&C Sqdn, 552nd AEW&CW, McClellan AFB, CA
      The aircraft is presented in two finishes; overall NMF for the 963rd, and NMF with Arctic Red (orange?) wing, nose and tail sections. Both aircraft share a pool of 26 serial number decals, and decal randomization is TRUE. I was unable to run down individual serials for the units, so these should be considered 'generic' in nature, although they ARE correct for this aircraft.
      When in game, on the Aircraft Selection Dropdown menu, you'll see:
      RC-121D Warning Star (R)
      Hopefully, will diferentiate it from any other RC-121s that you may (or may not) have, or be available. The "R" stands for RussoUK, the model maker.
      As is always reccommended, unzip to a temp folder or your desktop to give easy access to the rest of this readme for it's install instructions. Also, the credits list all the original FSX model & skin creators.

    8. SF2 OV-10A Bronco, Remod Pack

      SF2 OV-1A Bronco, Remod Pack       7/27/2019
      -For SF2, Any and All (Full Merged Reccomended)
      This is an remod of the North American OV-10A Bronco FAC and light attack aircraft, previously available. While there are still several issues (documented in "Notes"), it is in as good a shape as possible for SF2 without having someone build an entirely new LOD. If you have ANY previous versions, you are STRONGLY advised to back them up or delete them from you Mods folder(s). This includes the aircraft, decals, etc.
      There are 9 skin and decal sets in this package. Skins remain in their original bmp format. Many decals have been refreshed to remove any "ghosting" around their edges. The SF2 "date switch" =IS= active on several skins. Included are the pilot figures, the drop tank and sounds. All weapons used on the aircraft are STOCK 3W items.
      The skins included are:
      USAF:
      20th TASS Overall Gray (1969<)
      19th TASS (USAF Camo1) 
      19th TASS Euro 1 (3-tone Gray/Greens)
      USN:
      VAL-4 "Black Ponies" (1969-72 SEA)
      USMC:
      HMLA-267 (1968-71)
      VMO-2 (1968-1979)
      VMO-2 (Desert Camo)(1990<)
      VMO-6 (1968-77)
      USMC Camo1 (3-tone Gray)
      As is always reccommended, unzip to a temp folder or your desktop to give easy access to the rest of this readme for it's install instructions. Please read the notes section for more information and the change log. USAFMTL's original 2009 readme is included, in the main aircraft folder, for historical purposes.

      Good Hunting!

      This package contains a new aircraft, the Lockheed WV-2/EC-121K Warning Star Airborne Early Warning and Control aircraft as used by the US Navy.
      This aircraft comes complete with everything needed, and has skins that represent the following units, as is my habit one Atlantic and one Pacific based units:
      VW-1 "Typhoon Hunters", based at Barbers Point HI & NAS Agana, Guam
      VW-11, based at NAS Argentia, NFLD
      The aircraft is presented in two finishes; overall DGNB (VW-11), and DGNB with the anti-heat white upper fuselage (VW-1). Both aircraft have 18 BuNum (serial number) decals, and decal randomization is TRUE. On the Numbers.lst, any marked with a star (*) are 100% historicaly correct for that unit, and have been matched to their Modex number. Those not marked should be considered 'generic' in nature.
      When in game, on the Aircraft Selection Dropdown menu, you'll see:
      WV-2/EC-121K Warning Star (R)
      Hopefully, will diferentiate it from any other EC-121s that you may (or may not) have, or be available. The "R" stands for RussoUK, the model maker. The "WV-2" was the original designation when the aircraft was placed in service in 1954. It was renumbered to "EC-121" in the early 1960s, during the "Great McNamara Renaming & Consolidation" of all US military aircraft.

      "Quarantine Approved - Essential Mods"
      This package contains a new aircraft, the Lockheed L-1049 Super Constellation airliner.
      The aircraft is presented in the livery of Trans World Airlines (TWA) as seen in the 1950s; the heyday of the properller-driven airliner.
      Company markings are painted on, but 18 100% historical registration number and aircraft name ("Star of ***") decals are provided. Decal randomization is TRUE. The aircraft has a cockpit, so you can fly it if you wish. But as with all the TRANSPORT aircraft, leaving them in AI hands is reccommended. All sounds, pilots, etc have been included. 
      When in game, on the Aircraft Selection Dropdown menu, you'll see:
      Lockheed L1049 Constellation (R)
      Hopefully, will differentiate it from any other civil Constellations that may (or may not) be available. The "R" stands for RussoUK, the model maker.

      We are proud to present the F-5A HAF Volume I, the first of many to come, focusing on one of the most enduring American military aircraft designs ever produced during the Cold War period. This first Volume depicts the following Hellenic Air Force variants; the HAF F-5A standard, the HAF F-5A with the Martin Baker IRQ-7a ejection seat, and the HAF RF-5A reconnaissance variant. It has been our goal to provide to the simmer a highly detailed model and texture base which preserve the beautiful lines of this aircraft; and to engineer flight files and a cockpit/gauge file-set that are authentic and add to the immersion of the flying experience within the Strike Fighters 2 series.

       
      INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS:
      --------------------------
      1. Copy the contents of the "To Mods Folder(S)" to your SF2 Mod directory.
      Allow directory merging and overwrites, provided the overwrites pertain to "fake pilot" entries, as well as weapons made by ravenclaw_007, which are included in this and many other releases.
      2. Add the entries of "ADD_TO_SOUNDLIST.txt" to your SOUNDLIST.INI (located in the "user\Saved Games\ThirdWire\StrikeFighters2\Flight" folder).If one does not exist, then you will need to extract it using the 3rdWire CAT extract utility.  You are simply required to substitute the "XXX"s  with the next sequential number in the sound file section of the file.
       
        NOTE    1:
      ------------
      Both Regular and Higher resolution cockpit textures are included in their own distinct folders in the package.
      The user may alternate between the two by "commenting out"
      the relevant line in the F-5A_STANDARD_COCKPIT.ini

      [CockpitData]
      //Directory=cockpit      
      Directory=cockpit_Lo-Fi    <---This is the default

      In order to "activate" the higher resolution textures
      you would decomment the previous line and comment out
      the next line, thus:

      [CockpitData]
      Directory=cockpit          <---This is now Hi-Res
      //Directory=cockpit_Lo-Fi    

        NOTE    2:
      ------------
      Another frame-rate friendly option for those with older hardware is to use the Next level of Detail Model as the primary external model. This simply involves changing the first line in the F-5A_HAF.ini  from this..
      [LOD001]
      Filename=F-5A_STANDARD.LOD
      to this..
      [LOD001]
      Filename=F-5A_STANDARD_002.LOD
      Much effort was made to provide those with lower end systems an alternative lower poly-model to be able to enjoy the F-5a,  so please take advantage of this _002.LOD model should you experience frame-rate issues.  While not as "rounded" as the Higher poly version, it is nonetheless just as detailed and extensive.
       NOTE    3:
      ------------
      For those who may find loading times excessive, the .jpg files in the texture folders can be reduced to 50% of their size without sacrificing too much surface detail.

      ****************************************************************
      FEATURES:
      * Three model set including the HAF F-5A standard version (1965 - 1974), the  HAF F-5A with Martin Baker IRQ-7a ejection seat  (1975 - 1999), and the  HAF RF-5A reconnaissance variant with 4 K-92a cameras; each with their own custom loadouts.
      * Three, highly detailed external 3d models, including the RF-5A, whose nose was graciously modeled by ravenclaw_007.
      * Specular color and Normal (bump) maps on all models
      * Seven Level of Detail models (LODs) for each model, providing an almost seamless transition from distance to distance; and perhaps more importantly, ensuring that the frame-rate "impact" of the aircraft is as low as possible.
      * Two sets of highly detailed external Fuel Tanks by ravenclaw_007; both the Factory variety and the Sargent Fletcher variants.
      * Fine-tuned flight parameters in three distinct aircraft data configuration files  for all 3-D models, emphasizing the F-5A's agile and highly maneuverable characteristics - courtesy of  Baffmeister.
      * 8 high resolution texture sets; thoroughly researched historic depictions of the Aircraft fielded by many HAF Wings and Squadrons.
      * Quality sound-set included. Base sounds, by Guuruu, were sourced from existing recordings of various aircraft at air-shows and were modified  to match the prominent characteristics of the F-5A General Electric turbojets, the "buzz" of the M39 Pontiac 20mm machinegun, and the flap/Air-brake, undercarriage deployment and retraction sequences of the Freedom Fighter.
      * Super detailed  'Virtual Cockpit'  with animated throttle control, rudder pedals, control stick,  landing gear lever, canopy, canopy lever, drag-chute lever, weapons selectors and weapon station arming flick switches.
      *Accurate and functional representation of the Norair F-5A gun sight, with animated Mils selector and accompanying animated combining glass. (Mechanics by Crusader)
      * A full complement of highly (or should I say "insanely" detailed  HAF weapons carried by the HAF F-5A, all by ravenclaw_007.
      * Complex animation of canopy opening mechanism, and animated Turbine blades; both thanks to ravenclaw_007
      * GKAB's superb highly detailed crew figure with authentically modeled oxygen mask and flight helmet.
      * All new afterburner, emitter, and engine smoke effects by Guuruu.

      -----------

      F-5A Limit and Reference Speeds. [Indicated Airspeeds]
      FLAPS: 300kts for both leading and trailing edge.
             NOTE: The F-5A uses full flaps for take off but due to a game bug you must manually select full flaps for take off when player flown. The        AI will use full flaps although you can hear the flap sound cycling between flap 1 and flap 2.
      LANDING GEAR: 240kts
      DRAG CHUTE: 165kts
      CANOPY: 50kts
      NOSE WHEEL STEERING: 65kts
      MAXIMUM INDICATED AIRSPEED: 710kts [redline]
      MAXIMUM MACH: 1.72 Mach design limit but thrust/drag limited to about mach 1.50 in a 60deg dive from 50,000ft.
      --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
      TAKE OFF ROTATION SPEEDS
          13500lbs: 155kts [full internal fuel and two sidewinders]
          20500lbs: 195kts [about the maximum weight possible with included stores]
          NOTE: Use full flaps for take off! Adding 6kts for every 1000lbs above 13500lbs should give good aft stick/rotation speeds.
      --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
      CLIMB SPEEDS
      Military Power
          13500lbs: 375kts with a transition to mach 0.89

    12. (Marcfighters) KC-10A Extender in the 90s

      (Marcfighters) KC-10A Extender in the 90s
      This is a redux of the Marcfighters KC-10 mod. It incorporates each wing that used the KC-10A in the early to mid 1990s. This includes the units that still operated the Extender at the transition from SAC to AMC, as well as the transition to Travis and McGuire AFBs. Also included are the two skins for the KDC-10 tanker version used by the Royal Netherlands Air Force
      Installation:     Unlike many of my mods, i reccommend just deleting the previous mod if you have it on hand. This is a vast leap over the older skin set, and coversall available tankers rather than just 6 for each camo style. Allowing overwrite should not hurt anything, just dont complain about clutter if you go that path.
                                Otherwise, like always, unzip and install into any SF2 mod folder.

      Included:    
          5 skins for the 458th ARG, 22d ARW, 4th Wing, and the 60th and 305th AMWs in 1995
          multi camo decal sets for these skins
          nose art as appropriate
          tweeked skins for the KDC-10 aircraft
          original decals for these aircraft
      Known Issues
          the model and flight model are the same that Marcfighters included in the original (SF1) ODS mod. it was meant as eyecandy, and had no pit. as released i have commented out the cockpit, but had a sitting on the nose pit so i could load it in game
           to check work. there are also no windows for the cockpit, the entire fuselage is one piece (cause marking limitations)
          it is sluggish, and flies nose down.
          given there is a newer model known to be in the pipeline (eta two weeks), i am putting the lipstick on this pig but not working too much ini improvement. over 3/4 of the work on this should transfer easy to the new model when it comes.comments on how she flies will be referred to this warning.

    13. KC-10_SAC.7z

      SAC Twilight : KC-10A Extender(Marcfighters)
      This is a redux of the Marcfighters KC-10 mod. It incorporates each wing that used the KC-10A in the last few years of SAC service also included is a El Dorado Canyon skin. While we do not currently have this operation in the game, I was able to find pics of ten Extenders in the UK in the middle of April, 1986. Ten KC-10As were used in the operation. you do the math.
      Installation:     Unlike many of my mods, i reccommend just deleting the previous mod if you have it on hand. This is a vast leap over the older skin set, and covers all available tankers rather than just 6 for each camo style.

          4 skins for the 2d BMW, 22d ARW, 68th ARW, and Operation El Dorado Canyon with historical serial numbers
          multi camo decal sets for these skins
          nose art as appropriate
      Known Issues

    15. SF2 F-86L "Lima" Sabre Dog Revamp Pack

      SF2 F-86L "Lima" Sabre Dog Revamp Pack    6/9/2020
      "Quarantine Approved - Essential Mods"
      = For SF2 (Any & All) =
      This package is designed to replace the original F-86L from the pack available from the folowing URL:
      https://combatace.com/files/file/10286-sf2-f-86dl-v10/
      by suhjake from 2009
      It is =NOT= necessary to have the original mod pack, as this =WILL= replace it in total. Everything reusable from that pack will be included with this. If you do have the original installed, you will probably wish to remove, move, or delete it. Overwriting may cause conflicts.
      As the Lima's were mostly used by USAF Air National Guard units, that is what's covered here. The following units are depicted herein:
      146th FIS PA ANG (57-60)
      190th FIS ID ANG (59-64)
      194th FIS, CA ANG (58-64)
      199th FIS, HI ANG (58-61)
      3550th CCTW, Moody AFB, GA (late 50s/early 60s)
      3555th CCTW, Perin AFB, TX (late 50s/early/60s)
      and a
      USAF Silver (Generic) -a blank skin for other skinners to use. It does have the 'day glo' panels on the wings, fuselage and tail.
      As only the 194th is listed in the stock squadron list ini, it uses a level=1 decal to activate the displayed squadron name on the Loading/Skin selection screen.
      All of the Original Skins (PA ANG, 3550 & 3555 CCTWs) have been completely redone, although they remain in bmp format. All other skins are brand new for this package. 26 all new serial and buzz numbers, where used, have been created. While correct for this aircraft; all numbers are from the late-production Ds that were converted to Ls, they should be considered 'generic' in nature. State name identifiers and squadron markings are decals. Decal randomization is TRUE for all skins. 
      All weapons, pilots, etc are included. A backup copy of the original Data ini is already provided, as this new one has many modifications and adjustments. 
      As always, fairly easy to follow, detailed install instructions are included. So, please read them .... they can be accessed after unzipperizing. Please follow the 'usual instructions' 
      Happy Landing!

    16. SF2 F-86D Sabre Dog Revamp Pack

      SF2 F-86D Sarbre Dog Revamp Pack    5/19/2020
      "Quarantine Approved - Essential Mods"
      = For SF2 (Any & All) =
      This package is designed to replace the original F-86D/L pack available from the folowing URL:
      https://combatace.com/files/file/10286-sf2-f-86dl-v10/
      by suhjake from 2009
      It is NOT necessary to have the original mod pack, as this WILL replace it in total. Everything reusable from that pack will be included with this. On a side note, the F-86L "Lima" Sabre will be covered in a a seperate release. Even though the folder is named "F-86D-45" it represents =ALL= production blocks of the Sabre Dog, for those users included in the mod package.
      The following units are depicted herein:
      101st Hikotai (56-68) - JASDF
      16th FIS (51-59) - PACAF, Misawa Japan
      37th FIS (53-58) - Ethan Allen AFB, VT
      97th FIS (51-55) - Wright-Patterson AFB, OH
      431st FIS "Red Devils" (55-58) - Wheelus AFB, Lybia
      469th FIS (53-58) - McGhee Tyson AFB, TN
      520th FIS (54-55) - Geiger Field, Spokane WA
      146th FIS Pa ANG (57-60) -they used the F-86L congruently with the F-86D
      and a
      USAF Silver (Generic) -a blank skin for other skinners to use.
      All of the Original Skins have been completely redone, although they remain in bmp format. Several of the orignal decals have been reused, but modified from level 2 to level 0 (tail squadron markings). 26 all new serial and buzz numbers have been created. The 101 Hikotai and the 97th FIS & 431st do NOT use this same pool of numbers. They needed they're own for reasons that will become apparent during game play. The 431st is the ONLY unit in the pack that is listed on the stick squadronlist ini, and is tagged accordingly.
      Most marking are decals; in some cases wing and squadron marking had to be painted on due to mesh issues (tail). Decal randomization is TRUE for all skins. On the individual number lists, any number marked with a star (*) is 100% correct for that unit.
       All weapons, pilots, etc are included. A backup copy of the original Data ini is already provided, as the new one has many modifications and adjustments. 
      As always, fairly easy to follow, detailed install instructions are included. So, please read them .... they can be accessed after unzipperizing. Please follow the 'usual instructions'

    17. F-5GN

      F-5GN Sea Tiger (What if)
      *****************************************************
      This mod is made for SF2.
      ----------------------------------------------------------
      I. History (fiction)
      In 1969 there were decisive elections in West Germany. In reality, the Social Democrats won.
      A new foreign policy followed and a period of reduction of tensions between East and West.
      WHAT IF, the other side had won?
      What if the conservatives had won and Franz Joseph Strauß (an old bavarian Commie eater) would have become Chancellor of the Federal Republic of Germany?
      And so it starts.
      In 1969 Strauß was elected as Chancellor. A period of rising tensions between East and West
       started. To protect the sea lanes between Europe and America the west german parliament Bundestag decided to build up a west german carrier force consisting of 3 carriers.
      The american gouvernment was pleased and offered to sell 3 carriers of the Essex class (subclass Ticonderoga).
      The first ship which was handed over was CV-34 Oriskany in 1969. Renamed in R-22 Theodor Heuss it was core of the first west german carrier group. 1973 CV-38 Shangri-La became R-23 Heinrich Lübke (later renamed in Walter Scheel) and two years later CV-45 Valley Forge became R-24 Gustav Heinemann.
      The americans offered A-4 Skyhawk and F-8 Crusader as planes for the carrier group. The Bundesmarine accepted the A-4, but rejected the Crusader, because the Bundesmarine wanted a more multi role capable plane, not only a pure fighter.
      At this moment Northrop entered the competition and offered a navalised version of the brand new F-5E Tiger. Under the designation F-5GN (German Navy) it should be produced in America and Germany. The west german government accepted the offer and the serial production of the F-5GN started. During flight tests on the way the US Marines decided, that it would be a good idea to replace their old F-8 Crusaders with F-5GN planes. So the F-5GN became a Marine plane.
      Later, when the Marines retired their attack carriers the surviving F-5GN were transfered to Top Gun school.
      The F-5GN stayed in west german service till 1995. Then it was replaced by F-31 Mustang II.

      CREDITS:
      The F-5GN based on Centurions 2014 released F-5E package.
      A lot of files i have taken from this package. Thanks for this files!
      The skin:
      ~~~~~~~~~~~
      The blue skin is a modification of a grey skin available in Centurions package
      The Marines skin is a mod of the Southvietnames skin available in Centurions Package
       

      The flight model :
      ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
      There are 2 flightmodels. One is a modified FM from package. I made the plane able to land on a carrier.
      The other FM i made by using parts of the stock F-16A FM made by TK.

      You find both FM in the folder "Goodies". You may change them as you want.

    18. F-5GN (Marines)

      F-5GN(Marines) Sea Tiger (What if)
      *****************************************************
      This mod is made for SF2.
      ----------------------------------------------------------
      I. History (fiction)
      In 1969 there were decisive elections in West Germany. In reality, the Social Democrats won.
      A new foreign policy followed and a period of reduction of tensions between East and West.
      WHAT IF, the other side had won?
      What if the conservatives had won and Franz Joseph Strauß (an old bavarian Commie eater) would have become Chancellor of the Federal Republic of Germany?
      And so it starts.
      In 1969 Strauß was elected as Chancellor. A period of rising tensions between East and West
       started. To protect the sea lanes between Europe and America the west german parliament Bundestag decided to build up a west german carrier force consiting of 3 carriers.
      The american gouvernment was pleased and offered to sell 3 carriers of the Essex class (subclass Ticonderoga).
      The first ship which was handed over was CV-34 Oriskany in 1969. Renamed in R-22 Theodor Heuss it was core of the first west german carrier group. 1973 CV-38 Shangri-La became R-23 Heinrich Lübke (later renamed in Walter Scheel) and two years later CV-45 Valley Forge became R-24 Gustav Heinemann.
      The americans offered A-4 Skyhawk and F-8 Crusader as planes for the carrier group. The Bundesmarine accepted the A-4, but rejected the Crusader, because the Bundesmarine wanted a more multi role capable plane, not only a pure fighter.
      At this moment Northrop entered the competition and offered a navalised version of the brand new F-5E Tiger. Under the designation F-5GN (German Navy) it should be produced in America and Germany. The west german government accepted the offer and the serial production of the F-5GN started. During flight tests on the way the US Marines decided, that it would be a good idea to replace their old F-8 Crusaders with F-5GN planes. So the F-5GN became a Marine plane.
      Later, when the Marines retired their attack carriers the surviving F-5GN were transfered to Top Gun school.
      In west german service the F-5GN stayed till 1995. Then it was replaced by F-31 Mustang II.

    19. RF-101A & C VooDoo. SF.2 2020 Redux.

      Reworked pack of RF-101A and C VooDoo.
      Generally old good VooDoo in new dresses.
      There are big changes in FM model thanks to baffmeister  in data.ini files - so Backup your original file. You might not like it.
       
      In game you will find new aircrafts under names
      *RF-101A VooDoo
      *RF-101C VooDoo '58
      *RF-101C VooDoo '66
      note that RF-101C '58 uses non-RWR - VooDoo A cockpit.
       
      All new skins in 3072x3072 resolution. New bump maps and specular maps. also in 3072.. plus decals to cover A and C models serial numbers.
      Pack contains several skin sets for both models. With all research, I was trying to be correct as much as possible.
      RF-101A have also one skin/decal set which contains few decal skin sets to cover experimental camo trials conducted in mid 60s. 
      Regarding colorful aircraft serial numbers: 
      54-1513 some say it was dark green some that really black. more info goes towards black so I painted it black (like Rolling Stones in 1966)
      54-1514 first was painted similar as represented in this pack, then it was repainted with adding some brown colors.
      54-1512 green/black camo with added brown during tests. 
      All this skin set with experimental camo trial is quite complicated and hard to put correctly in-game but I hope it will work fine for you.
      I did not include skin sets for VooDoo operated over Vietnam. This will come in a separate package. Eventually. One day.

      All new decals consisting of serial numbers for block 20-35 of A version and block  45-75 for C version. 

      Backup your original RF-101 Folders. Also Decals!
       
      Credits:
      Original models ErikGen
      yakarov - skins / decals / some small ini tweak 
      baffmeister -new flight model.
      Soulfreak - original skin for an extra thing. 
       
      Have Fun.
      May the VooDoo be with you.

    20. North American RF-100A 'Slick Chick'

      North American RF-100A for STRIKE FIGHTERS 2
      This is a very simple mod of the stock North American F-100A to create an RF-100A 'placeholder' until something better comes along.
      You'll need to have Expansion Pack 2 to access the F-100A.
      This little known Cold War warrior today can lay claim to being the world's first supersonic recconnaisance aircraft and I'd encourage you to read what you can about the handful of RF-100A's starting here;
      http://www.spyflight.co.uk/f100.htm
      Now I'm not a 3D modeller so I've done the best I could using MiG-21 recon pods to create the broadly similar shapes seen on the real RF-100A. To get them to load I've classified them as non-jettisonable fuel tanks so don't worry about dropping your tanks on the return dash - your precious wet film will still be there for the CIA boffins to examine. The RF-100A's carried no armament so I've deleted the 20mm cannon and removed the gun smoke but unfortunately the gun troughs are still there but you'll soon forget about that.
       
      INSTRUCTIONS
      1. From the AIRCRAFT folder drag and drop the RF-100A folder into your Aircraft folder.
      2. From the DECALS folder drag and drop the RF-100A folder into your Decals Folder.
      3. From the WEAPONS folder drag and drop the SLICK_CHICK folder into your Weapons folder.
      That's it!
       
      CREDITS
      As always, big thanks to Third Wire for the continuous improvement of a great little game/sim.
      A thank you to whoever created the MiG-21 Recon Pod and I hope you don't mind it being used here.
      And, finally, thanks to everyone in the wider Third Wire community.
      Regards
      Spinners

      SF2 E\F-111\A\D\E\F USAF Combat Lancers\Aardvarks\Ravens Redux 2016
      by Viper63a, dtmdragon, Lel and Fanatic Modder!
      -------------------------------------------------------------
      This mod was intended as an update to FastCargo's Super Vark Package (See link below), but it can be a standalone mod if you just want the USAF F-111s included in this pack. If you want to install both packs, FastCargo's pack must be installed first as that is the older pack.
      You can get FastCargo's pack here...
      http://combatace.com/files/file/10425-f-111-super-vark-pack-version-24/
      -------------------------------------------------------------
      What's included in this mod pack?
      -------------------------------------------------------------
      This mod includes the updated individual E/F-111A/D/E/F mod packs + other excellent contributions! I had some requests to put them all into one pack for it would be easier to download. So here they are. All the F-111s in this packs are also available for individual downloads in the following links...if you just want a certain model. The F-111D updates from dtmdragon, Lel and Fanatic Modder are only available in this mod pack.
      * F-111A Jets for Vietnam: The 428th, 429th and 430th TFS from Tahkli RTAFB!

      Installation:
      -------------------------------------------------------------
      I recommend that you back up your mod folder (or just the Effects, \Objects\Aircraft\F-111* folders). I just make a copy the mod folder, try the mod, if I like it, I delete the backup. If I don't, I delete the new/updated mod folder and rename the old backup/copy back to the original names to reset to my original setup.
      * To install, simply unzip and copy the contents of the "To_Mod_Folder" folder (the uncompressed "Effects and Objects" folders only) to your StrikeFighter2 mod folder and Overwrite.
      My StrikeFighter2 mod on Win97 64-bit was..(yours may be different)...
      C:\Users\<your_id>\Saved Games\Thirdwire\StrikeFighter2 Europe\
      Note: You should be able to install this mod into any SF2 series, it doesn't have to be StrikeFighter2 Europe.
      * To remove, simply delete the active "Effects and Objects" folders and replace with the back up copies you made prior to the install.
      -------------------------------------------------------------
      Add F111 SoundList
      -------------------------------------------------------------
      Lastly, Read the "Add F111 SoundList.txt" readme file on updating your your "Flight\SoundList.ini" file with the custiom F-111 sound files included in this pack.
      -------------------------------------------------------------
      Thats it - Enjoy!

    22. Convair F-106 Delta Dart pack upgrade

      F-106A Delta Dart
      The Convair F-106 Delta Dart was the primary all-weather interceptor aircraft
      of the United States Air Force from the 1960s through to the 1980s. Designed
      as the so-called "Ultimate Interceptor", it proved to be the last dedicated
      interceptor in U.S. Air Force service to date. It was gradually retired during
      the 1980s.

      F-106A Project Six Shooter 1972
      In 1972 F-106As were upgraded in Project Six Shooter that involved fitting
      the F-106 with a new canopy without metal bracing which greatly improved pilot
      visibility. Also added was an optical gunsight, and provision for a single M61
      Vulcan 20 mm cannon. The M61 Vulcan had 650 rounds of ammunition in the center
      weapons bay and it replaced the AIM-26 Super Falcon or Genie.
      QF-106A Drone Pacer Six
      Between 1 June 1983 and 1 August 1988 the Delta Darts were incrementally retired
      and sent to the Military Storage and Disposition Center in Arizona.When the need
      for a high performance Full Scaled Aerial Target Drone was required the USAF began
      withdrawing Delta Darts from storage. Starting in 1986, 194 (F-106A and B) of the
      surviving surplus aircraft were converted into target drones and these were
      designated QF-106As and used for target practice vehicles under the Pacer Six Program
      by the Aerial Targets Squadron. The last was destroyed in January 1998.The drones
      were still capable of being flown as manned aircraft, such as for ferrying to a test;
      during the test they were flown unmanned.The QF-106 replaced the QF-100 Super Sabre
      drone; the last shoot down of a QF-106 (57-2524) took place at Holloman AFB on 20
      February 1997 after which the QF-106 was superseded by the QF-4S and QF-4E Phantom II
      drone.

      - F-106A repacked
