    1. SF2 F-4G(B) USN Pack

      SF2 F-4G(B) USN Pack              8/28/2019
      -For SF2, Any and All (Full Merged Reccomended)
      This is a NEW aircraft, the F-4G(B) for the US Navy. There were F-4Bs modified with a automatic carrier landing system during their Oct 1965-June 1966 deployment in South East Asia aboard USS Kitty Hawk. They were painted in an experimental green camoflauge, as were many other aircraft of CVW-11 in this time frame.
      Once upon a time, I know we had this aircraft for 1stGen SF, but have been unable to locate it. So, I rebuilt it, and now present it you all to enjoy. This is a complete aircraft, based off the F-4B_65, so make use you have this bird in your inventory. This aircraft uses all stock 3w items.
      The skin is in jpg format, in 2048x, from Sundowner's templates. 12 100% historically accurate Bunum decals are included. Decal randomization is TRUE. This aircraft is given a full year's operational time frame, "1965-1966" in the data ini, even if not historically correct (read: easier). New, aircraft specific hangar and loading screens are provided.
      Is should be noted, this mod was started in 2011, and got lost. I do NOT remember who created the original skin I worked from, or the decals (which have been refreshed to remove ghosting around the edges), So I cannot take full credit for this mod (see "Notes" for more speculations).
      When in-game, on the aircraft selection drop down, you'll see:
      F-4G(B) Phantom II (USN)
      This will differentiate it from the USAF F-4G Wild Weasel, and make sure you know it's a Navy bird.
      As is always reccomended, unzip to a temp folder or your desktop to give easy access to the rest of this readme for it's install instructions. 

      Happy Landings!

    2. Douglas EB-66C Destroyer (Ver 2)

      Douglas EB-66C Destroyer Update Pak  (Ver.2)                          8/16/2019
      = For SF2, Any & All =
      This is an update/upgrade/Remod of my 2013 pack. This is considered to be "version 2.0" of the EB-66C Destroyer ELINT/Escort Jammer aircraft. It it designed to replace, in total the earlier package from August 2013. If you have the original pack, you are instructed to delete it completly (aircraft, decals, and all), as this one has some major imporvements.
      This remod pack contains 2 skins:
      41st TEWS, 355th TFW, PACAF, Takhli RTAFB, mid-60s thru 1974-ish (RC tail code)
      39th TEWS, 36th TFW, USAFE, Spangdahelm AB 1969-73 (JN tail code)
      Both are new, and are (hopefully!) in the correct SEA 3-tone camoflague colors. 
      All NEW replacement serial number decals were created. Both skins use a pool of 36 100% historical serial numbers. As only 36 of these aircraft were built (in one block of 30 and a second of 6) it was a easy job. While totaly accurate in nature, the 36 numbers are not representative of individual aircraft of any unit or squadrons that used the EB-66C (other than by random happenstance). Decal randomization is TRUE.
      As with the other B-66 mods, a heavily edited cockpit designed to 'fit' within the existing canopy framing is included. Avionics have been upgraded with new jammers, chaff dispensers, and so forth. This aircraft carries =NO= offensive weapons, or defensive guns. FLY ACCORDINGLY!!! A small modification to the data ini also allows for carrying external jammer pods & chaff dispensers in place of the drop tanks.
      As always, fairly easy to follow, yet detailed install instructions are included. Please read them! See "Change Log" in the Notes section for a full-ish list of what's been, well, changed!
      Happy SAM Dodging!!

    3. SF2 Douglas RB-66C & WB-66D Destroyer Update Pak

      Douglas RB-66C & WB-66D Destroyer Update Pak                      8/12/2019
      = For SF2, Any & All =
      This package contains 2 of Bunyap's 1stGen aircraft brought up to a more SF2-ish
      standard. Also, they seemed to be missing from the SF2 downloads, and I thought
      it was time to bring them back. They are the:
      RB-66C Destroyer (Recon & ELINT) aircraft
      WB-66D Destroyer (Weather Recon, ELINT) aircraft
      The units/skins provided herein are:
      RB-66C:
      42nd TRS, 10th TRW (USAFE)
      19th TRS, 66th TRW (USAFE)
      WB-66D: 
      9th TRS, 363rd TRW (ConUS+)
      All markings are decals, excepting the 42nd tailfin flash. All serial and buzz
      number decals (30 for the RB & 36 for the WB) are 100% historicaly correct. They
      represent the full production runs for =BOTH= aircraft. The 2 skins for the RB
      use the same pool of decals. A new Hi-Rez replacement skins were created from
      HGBN's templates. The skins are in jpg format. As with the B-66 and EB-66, a
      highly modified cockpit is supplied to 'fit' within the visible model.
      As always, fairly easy to follow, yet detailed install instructions are
      included. Please read them! See "change List" in Notes for what's been
      modified/changed/adjusted.

    4. SF2 OV-1A 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.

    5. SF2:V RB-57E Canberra "Patricia Lynn" (Remod)

      SF2 RB-57E Canberra "Patricia Lynn" (Remod)              7/25/2019
      = For SF2:V ( or Any & All SF2s, Full-5 Merged Prefered) =
      *note: this mod was started for a CA member in July, 2018. I just recently found it in my archives. Figured I might as well release it!*
      This is a complete rebuild of Anjundair's B-57E, and an update to Migbuster's RB-57E "Patricia Lynn" package for SF2:V.
      The aircraft has 3 full skin and decal sets; all serial number decals are 100% historically correct. These skins depict the 460th TRW, Det 1 at various times in their deployments to Southeast Asia:
      Natual Metal (1963)
      Night 1 (1966)
      Night 2 (1970)
      The skins use the SF2 'date switch', and marking change as needed as per the year in use. Skins remain in their bitmap format.
      The FM has been rebuild using the stock 3W B-57 as a base. The avionics have been upgraded, and you'll now have a full time LLTV set up. As there is no accurate B-57 cockpit, the F-4B is used as a stand in, due to it having scope to display the radar, TFR and LLTV (yes, we know there actually wasn't one in the front cockpit). This (gaming) aircraft remains fully combat capable, unlike the Real Life (tm) versions. See Notes for more information.
      When in game, you'll see
      RB-57E Canberra (AJ)
      on the aircraft selection dropdown window.The "AJ" credits Ajundair, even though there are no other RB-57s available.
      As always, fairly easy to follow, detailed install instructions are included. So, please read them! If you have any earlier versions of this aircraft mod, it is =HIGHLY= suggested you delete the aircraft and decals folders, as THIS mod replaces everything. End users (tm) might also find the Notes section enlightning and informative.
      Good Hunting!

      ***Note: Found in the Archives!!! This was done and should have been uploaded in early 2018!! But I guess  never got around to doing so for whatever reasons. As I don't use my SF2:V mods folder much, there may be other birds that have been hiding in the hangars. I'll be more careful in checking from now on!! ***

    6. SF2 F-84B Thunderjet, 49th FIS, 14th FG Pack

      SF2 F-84B Thunderjet, 49th FIS, 14th FG Pack       7/7/2019
      -For SF2, Any and All (Full Merged Reccomended)
      This is a NEW aircraft, the Republic F-84B Thunderjet, depicted as when it first became operational in 1947. It it based on (one of) RussoUK's F-84s. It represents aircraft of the 49th FS (JP), 14th FG from 1947 through 1949. The 49th was the first USAF squadron to recieve and deploy the Thunderjet into active service (along with it's sister squadrons the 37th and 48th).They served in the "day and good weather" Air Defense role of the Eastern United states from Dow AFB, Maine.
      The skin is in jpg format, and 26 serial and Buzz numbers decals were created. Decal Randomization is TRUE.  On the number list (individual aircraft serial) drop down, any serials marked with a star (*) has been positively identified as having served in the 49th. The others, while some DID serve in other squadrons of the 14th FG, they could not be identified to any of the 3 squadrons. Others, for the B model, are generic in nature. 
      A NEW late 1940s pilot figure is included, as is the "f84" jet sound. Drop tanks, WW2 era bombs, rockets, etc are NOT. You should have these already.
      On the Aircraft selection dropdown menu you'll see:
      F-84B ThunderJet (RUK)
      (This is to differentiate Russ's T-Jet from the as yet uncompleted FastCargo version; if it every gets done!). 
      As is always reccomended, unzip to a temp folder or your desktop to give easy access to the rest of this readme for it's install instructions.

    7. SF2 F-89 Scorpion Remod Pack (Ver.3)

      SF2 Northrup F-89 Scorpion Remod Pack (V.3)                         5/25/2019
      *For SF2, Any & All (Full 5 Merged Prefered)*
      This is a repackaging, and MAJOR update of the F-89 Scorpion series of 1950s USAF All-Weather Interceptors. There have been many changes to the various inis, skins/decals, weapons, and whatnots. This is to be considered to be "Version 3", and hopefully the final time the F-89 gets a revamp (unless new models magically appear). This package builds on and improves from the v2 pack dated 3/3/2016. It also replaces that mod completely.
      This package contains ALL the various marks of the Scorpion, including those later variants built from/modded of Monty's original C & D model LODs. There are several new skins, marked with the star (*) You have herein:
      F-89C:
      57th FIS, (Keflavik, Iceland)
      74th FIS, 23rd FIW (Thule AFB, Greenland)
      F-89D:
      75th FIS (Presque Isle AFB, Maine 1955)
      84th FIS (Hamilton AFB 1955-59)
      64th FIS (Alaska Air Command)
      321st FIS, (Paine AFB, WA 1954)*
      F-89H:
      321st FIS, (Paine AFB, WA 1956)*
      75th FIS (Presque Isle AFB, Maine 1957)
      F-89J (Early):
      321st FIS, (Paine AFB, WA 1958)*
      449th FIS (Ladd AFB, Alaska)
      F-89J (Late)
      59th FIS, Goose Bay Labrador (1958-60)*
      178th FIS "Happy Hooligans" ND ANG (1958-66)
      124th FIS, Iowa ANG (1962-69)*
      Several versions also have a "Generic USAF Silver" skin, complete with decals. You may notice several squadrons used the Scorpion in several of it's various incarnations. This is historically correct.
      Due to mesh/node mapping reasons, some marking remain painted on. A large number however, are decals. Serial numbers are 100% correct for the models depicted, but should be considered 'generic' as they don't represent actual aircraft with a given unit. Decal randomization is TRUE for all skins. Squadron's listed in the stock game's SquadronList.ini have their names activated via my 'fake' SqTail decal. Those will display their proper names on the Loadout Screen's Squadron Selection Window. When possible, the SF2 'date switch' has been used to turn on Air National Guard units as they became equipped with F-89s.
      On such aircraft that have operating canopies (those that use the F-89D lod), the canopy works via the Standard Manual Animation Keystroke (tm), shift/0.
      Included also are "Scorpion" specifc weapons (using the "StationSpecifieCode=" statements. Nuke explosion effects are included for the AIR-2 Genie rocket.
      As is always reccomended, unzip to a temp folder or your desktop to give easy access to the rest of this readme for it's install instructions. See "Notes" section for full change log and other  important statements. The various other readmes, from all previous versions remain wherever they were originally residing.

    8. SF2 F-84F Thunderstreak by The Mirage Factory

      SF2 F-84F Thunderstreak by The Mirage Factory            5/12/2019
      = For SF2, Full-5 Merged (Reccomended/Preferred) =
      This is a rebuild for SF2 of The Mirage Factory's F-84F "Thunderstreak" (swept wing version). It goes again my grain to see such a well done aircraft, albeit originally built for SF/W0* 1st Gens, and many associated skin/decal set languish in obscurity simply due to age and the existence of one from 3rd Wire, albeit in a purchasable DLC. THIS one is free, and won't need any hoop-jumping to keep player flyable. 
      I've scavanged most of the existing skin sets, did various tweaking to make them a bit more SF2 ready. The aircraft FM has been slightly adjusted for SF2, a destroyed model attached, decals randomized, and when necessary, decals and new skins created from the revised TMF Templates by Pappychksix. The templates are included in a separate named folder in this download. For those skins with painted on national markings, my patent pending "fake insigina decal" trick was used to activate the Nation Name displayed. The same trick, with my patent pending "fake SqTail" decal, now activates any and all squadrons that are listed in the stock 3W Squadronlist.ini. Reminder: the Squadronlist ini ONLY has full units, not, for example, the various Staffels of the BLW T-streaks. 
      All new skin specific Hangar screens (SF2 style), and one of my famous "AvArt" style loading screens are included. All drop tanks, pilots, weapons and sounds needed are included (see Notes about camo tanks). The Canopy opens with the Standard Animaiton keystroke (shift/0 -shift/Zero).
      In this pack you have many skins. Most use the 'SF2 date switch' to go from Natural Metal to the End Users (TM) national camoflague finishes. Please note, some skins are in their original "as issued" bitmap format. Some have been rebuilt, or new builds, in jpg format. The skins supplied are:
      = USAF:
      78th TFS, USAFE, RAF Bentwaters
      168th FBS, Illinios Air National Guard (1961 Berlin Crisis)
      4510th CCTS, Luke AFB (called 'USAF_Silver')
      = Belgian Air Force:
      3rd Squadron (NM 1956)
      2nd Squadron (NATO Camo) -switches on in 1958
      = Netherlands KLU:
      311 Sqn, KLU (Camo) -starts 1964, when F-84Fs were recieved
      = France:
      EC 1/1 Corse (1955-1960) -folder called "AdA"; NM. see notes. 
      EC 3/1 Argone (1956 Suez and post-Suez, 1957-ish)
      = West German BLW:
      JaboG 31 2nd Sqn "Alma" (NM 1956) (new by me)
      JaboG 31 2nd Sqn "Alma" Camo
      JaboG 32 3rd Sqn Camo
      JaboG 33 3rd Sqn Camo
      JaboG 34 "Allgäu" 1st Sqn
      JaboG 35
      *Note all except II/JBG 31 NM 56 are Camo, and start in 1962. All BLW skins/decals, except where noted are from Soulfreaks GAF Thunderstreak Pack*
      = Greek Hellenic Air Force:
      348 Sqdn, HAF, NM (1958)
      346 Sqdn, HAF, SEA Camo (1971)
      *Note: in between the NM and SEA, many HAF T-streaks carried NATO 2-tone. That skin is not supplied. See Notes.*
      Also included is a 'generic natural metal' for any other skinners that wish to fiddle with new skins. As many of the NATO 2-tone camo aircraft use all decals for markings, and the template is supplied, it should be easy to create other skins as needed. Even though the header reads "Full 5 Merged", it can be used in any SF2 mods folder.
      When in game, on the aircraft selection drop down menu, you'll see:
      F-84F ThunderStreak (TMF)
      This differentiates it from the stock 3rd Wire version.
      As always, fairly easy to follow, yet detailed install instructions are included. So, please read them. Also, give the "Notes" section a read too. Where possible, I've included the original readme for the various skin sets; the original TMF aircraft readme is in the main aircraft folder.

    9. Convair B-58 Hustler

      The Convair B-58 Hustler was the first operational jet bomber capable of Mach 2 flight.[2] The aircraft was designed by Convair and developed for the United States Air Force (USAF) for service in the Strategic Air Command (SAC) during the 1960s.[3] It used a delta wing, which was also employed by Convair fighters such as the F-102, with four General Electric J79 engines in underwing pods. It carried five nuclear weapons; four on pylons under the wings, and one nuclear weapon and fuel in a combination bomb/fuel pod under the fuselage, rather than in an internal bomb bay.

    10. RAAF CAC Sabre Mk.32 -Version 2

      RAAF CAC Sabre Mk.32 -Version 2.0-
       
      For SF2 (any and all)
       
      Note: this version REPLACES any earlier ones in it's entirety!! You should delete your original, if you have it already. As the skins have been changed to jpg, the original bmp format will cause a conflict.
       
      Some ini modifications and 2 new skins for Zur's Avon-powered Sabre, as used by the RAAF in the 50s-60s.
      The skins are:
       
      3 Squadron
      77 Squadron
       
      Serial numbers are historically accurate; with the sources I used I've tried to match aircraft with the squadron served with ... I've come within about 98%; pretty much as far as possible.
      Decal Randomization is set to TRUE for both skins
      For End Users ™ with the Oz Mirage DLC, I've activated the squadron display on the Loadout Screen via my 'fake' sqtail decal.
       
      Other ini mods added the radar-ranging gunsight, landing lights, etc. Loadouts, however are =NOT= historically correct, due to some LOD issues. (More on that in the "Notes" section). A rather 'generic' SF2 style Sabre hangar screen is included.
      Weapons are =NOT= included - all excepting the drop tank reference stock, in-game items. You can obtain the drop tank in any of the other Sabre Paks or from the Gunny's Weapons Pak.
       
      As always, READ the enclosed readme for full, detailed instructions. This package has been broken down into the various folders that SF2 needs/requires/should have, to make it a LOT easier to install. Also, as usual, the expected 'Notes and Other Nonesense' comments by me.
       
      =================
      Changes for Ver 2.0:
      new large format jpg skins
      new SF2 compliant FM
      new sounds
      dds damage textures
      fixed shadow issue
       
      Happy Landings!!

    13. Grumman F9F-2 Panther Aviación Naval

      The only foreign buyer of the Panther was the Argentine Naval Aviation, which bought 28 ex-USN F9F-2B aircraft in 1957;
      the first 10 arrived in 1958. Only 24 aircraft were put in service, the rest were used as spares.
      The first flight of an Argentine Panther was in December 1958, and the last aircraft was put in service in January 1961.
      The catapults on the then only Argentine carrier, ARA Independencia, were considered not powerful enough to launch the F9F,
      so the aircraft were land-based. However, in July 1963 a Panther (serial 0453/3-A-119) landed on Independencia as part of trials;
      becoming the first jet to land on an Argentine aircraft carrier.
      Argentine Navy F9F-2 Panthers saw combat in the 1963 Argentine Navy Revolt, bombing and strafing a column of the Army 8th Tank Regiment
      which was advancing on the rebelling Punta Indio Naval Air Base. The attack destroyed several M4 Sherman tanks, at the cost of one F9F Panther shot down.
      The Argentine Panthers were involved in the general mobilization during the 1965 border clash between Argentina and Chile but no combat occurred.
      They were taken out of service in 1969 due to the lack of spare parts and replaced with Douglas A-4Q Skyhawks.
      The Argentine Navy also operated the F-9 Cougar.
      WHAT'S IN:
      - a new, dedicated Armada plane [needed to be used from carriers]; 3 Skins

    14. FJ-3M Fury by Zur and Co., for SF2

      NAA FJ-3M Fury
      = For SF2, Any and All =
       
      This is the full, compiled package of Zur/Column5's FJ-3M Fury. I've assembled all theskin/decal sets I could find into one big lump.
       
      Skins included in the pak are:
       
      VF-53 from ??
      VF-62 from USS Essex, ATG-201 during the Beirut Crisis
      VF-73 from USS Randolph, circa 1956/57
      VF-84 from USS Forrestall, crica 1956/57
      VF-142 from USS Hornet, 1956
      VF-211 from USS BonHomme Richard, circa 1956
      VMF-312 (actually an FJ-3 in Natural Metal, circa 1955ish)
       
      Some of the older decals have been replaced by new-builds, and all the positioning has been reset to match photographic and profile evidence. With a little luck, they're right! Decal randomization is also set to TRUE, so make sure you're at least at the July 2011 patch level (or whichever one gave that to us)
       
      Also included is a new drop tank (based off the original Sabre tank), as reskinned by C5 for the original release. I've just did some hex editing and renaming of the tank to create the "new" version just for the Fury.
      Other changes are the addition of the Userlist, a new avionics ini that adds the radar-ranging gunsight. And a revamped SF2 version of my 'artwork' hangar screen. Loadouts use all stock, in-game items.
      The aircraft is fully carrier-capable, via the addition of a 'virtual' arrestor hook. The 'destroyed model' callout has been added, using the closest shape (F-100D). Not perfect, but it works!
       
      As always, READ the enclosed readme for full,detailed, easy-to-follow install instructions. Of course, the usual 'Notes' section for the ravings of a madman!!
       
      Happy Landings!

    15. F-101A & C VooDoo. SF.2 2019 Redux.

      Reworked pack of F-101A and C VooDoo.
      Generally old good VooDoo in new dresses.
      There are some small changes in data.ini files mostly in weapon stations section - so Backup your original file. You might not like it.
       
      Despite VooDoo is extremely sexy aircraft it is much useless. Unfortunately. It was designed to be something different but had to serve in a totally different role. Nuclear Strike Aircraft. 
      Because I'm always doing mods my way - to fit my needs. I wanted to have squadrons that used  "fighting 101". So the thing is...this is one aircraft -  because squadrons contained a mix of A and C versions and this aircraft had very limited use I decided to make one aircraft to cover both A and C version.
      By default, I used A version limits.   Anyway, differences were only in the internal structure of airframe. 
      Airframe 54-1491 served as CO aircraft in 27th TFW. So in the early sixties, it will pop up in special markings for 78th, 91st, and 92nd squadrons. 
      If you want separate aircraft A and C you will have to do it on your own. Decals/serials for C are marked in numbers.lst with 'dot' .  
       
      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 11 skin sets for early use by 27th TFW and then 81st TFW - all squadrons that ever used F-101A / C  (from different time periods to cover years of usage).
      All new decals consisting of 95 serial numbers for block 20-35 of A version and block  40-55 for C version. 

      Backup your original F-101 Folders. Also Decals!
      Pack also includes the Mk.7 Tactical Nuclear Bomb.  New model quickly made for purposes of this pack. 
       
      And an extra thing for squadron/wing geeks - set of skins for squadron hack. 
       
      Credits:
      Original models ErikGen
      yakarov - skins / decals / some small ini tweak / Mk.7 model
      Soulfreak - original skin for an extra thing. 
       
      Have Fun.
      May the VooDoo be with you.

      Reduced the size of the US AIR FORCE markings
      Moved the side door and emblems...
      Fixed loadout - has Jeeps and Pallets in the cargo hold...
      Used one tail decal from daddyairplanes Euro C-5A Galaxy (for his ecellent work see below)...     * Please note - The INI files may be different, so you will get the INI files from the last pack you install.   v.1.2
      Added White over Gray MAC C-5A...
      Converted some skin markings to decals... -------------------------------------------------------------
      Installation:
      -------------------------------------------------------------   >>> Please backup and delete in your mod folders: "C-5A" in \Objects\Aircraft and \Objects\Decals folders...or don't know what will happen...
      Copy the contents of the uncompressed "To_Mod_Folder" folder into your Saved Game mod folder. Overwrite any conflicts...   Enjoy!
      Viper 01/18/2019   ------------------------------------------------------------- Original Readmes:
      -------------------------------------------------------------   SF2 USAF/NATO/Western Cargo Planes by Veltro2K     3/20/2013 -For SF2, Any and All- This is a re-release of these aircraft, as some have stated a desire to have them again.
      This pak includes all my reskins, decals, ini tweeks from the various "upgrade paks" I'd released before the aircraft were disappeared.
      This pak contains =ONLY= those aircraft used by the USAF, our Allies and other NATO powers. The Soviet/Warsaw Pact transports are someplace else.... Included in this pack are: C-141A Starlifer
      C-141B Starlifter
      C-5A Galaxy
      C-17 Globemaster III
      G-222 Spartan (called such in USAF service) Some may be more complete than others, with regards to decals and such. Some are fairly 'untouched', and will need further decaling, etc. Some hangar and loading screens are NOT in SF2 format, and will need redoing (meaning: I never got around to them!).
      All the original readmes from the Upgrade Paks (I could find!) are included within this main folder. I'd reccomend reading them, just for fun! Skin and some decal templates (again, when I could find them!) are included. The decal template is for the "ttag" decal, that is for USAF AMC usage.
      This pak is quite large, as the skins remain in their bmp format. You can convert to jpg at you convience. As always, fairly easy to follow, yet detailed install instructions are included. PLEASE read them!!! PLEASE read the "Notes" section for other important notations. Also, the Legal Statement has been changed with regards to this aircraft.
      For those that still have the original releases, you may not need to reapply this package. But, to be safe, PLEASE check over your aircraft to be sure. Thank You :). **These aircraft herein are released in "AS IS" Condition. There are/may be some issues with the LOD that may not/cannot be resolved. Period. Any and all issues/problems that cannot be solved via ini edits will exist forever, as new models are unlikely to be created. For now.** ------------------------------------------------ =TO INSTALL: As I always reccomend, unzip the "sf2_veltro2k_cargoplanes_pak.zip" to a temp folder or your desktop or somewhere else that's easy to find Then, simply, copy/paste the Objects folder supplied directly =OVER= your existing /Objects folder.
      Copy/Paste the supplied Sounds folder directly OVER your existing /Sounds folder
       
      You'll probably be asked "OVERWRITE?", just say Yes. I've already seperated out the various folders (Aircraft, Decals, etc), so they'll drop right where they're supposed to be. ----------------------------
      Notes: Again, as these are considered "heavies", they are best left under AI control, even though they all have cockpits. What can be done with them, I've not too many clues...however, with the SF2 mission builder, they can be inserted into campaigns, single missions and a host of other opportunities that present themselves. Use you imagination. If there is a HUGE hugh and cry, perhaps I can be moved to locate all the Soviet transports Veltro did....if I can find where I put them!

This package =ONLY= contains the data inis for the aircraft listed below. You will still need to locate the original aircraft. It is highly suggested (read: REQUIRED) that you have SF2NA as part of your merged installs, as several of these reference the stock 3W Tu-95 Bear destroyed model. Some reference the stock 3W An-12, Tu-16 or B-52D (SF2V) destroyed models as well. Flight Models remain "as issued"; they've not been touched by me. All New Data Inis Included in this pack are for: C-5A Galaxy
      C-17 Globemaster II
      C-141A Starlifter
      C-141B Starlifter
      G-222/C-27 Spartan

      Br.1150 Atlantique  (ASW/Martime Patrol)
      PB-1W Navy Fortress (USN 1940s/50s AEW - B-17) DC-8 *
      B-747  Pan Am"Jumbo Jet" *The DC-8 mods are for the package by Daddyairplanes*
      All aircraft have had their data inis reworked to correct, add, move, remove or generally "fix" all the hit boxes, relocate components (ie: fuel tanks, as best as possible inside the airframe) and in general clean up many things that simply escaped notice. The exception here is the Pan Am 747, which gets a partly repainted skin, with all new 100% accurate civil registration number decals (18) AND their matching "Clipper" names. Decal Randomization is "TRUE". The 747 and DC-8s also get an avionics upgrade (GM radar). Some sounds are included; you may have them alread, or not; but I like "to be sure". Please note, some of these aircraft may NOT be in the SF2 downloads section; one will need to Search the SF1/Wo* (1stGen) downloads. Equally important, is to HAVE the aircraft installed =BEFORE= installing this Upgrade Pack. Kinda makes sense, right? <gr> As is always reccomended, unzip to a temp folder or your desktop to give easy access to the rest of this readme for it's install instructions. Happy Landings!

      ==========
      To Install: Another reminder: ****HAVE THE AIRCRAFT INSTALLED TO YOUR SF2 MODS FOLDER OF CHOICE =BEFORE= INTALLING THE UPDATE/UPGRADE PACKAGE.**** As always reccomended, unzip the "sf2_v2k_western_heavies_upgrade_pak" to a temp folder or your desktop or somewhere that's easy to find. Copy/Paste the /Objects folder DIRECTLY into the SF2 game install of choice's /Objects folder. It's already divided into the /Aircraft and /Decals sub-folders. You'll asked to "Overwrite?" , just say yes. It'll change nothing. Copy/Paste the included /Sounds folder DIRECTLY over you existing Sounds folder. Allow the "Overwrite". I've included sounds you may already have, but wanted to be sure that (nearly) everything was available to the End User (tm). That should cover it, go fly! -----------------------------

      Me, for taking on the job.
      TMF for the destroyed 707, used with the DC-8s Sources:
      see original readmes ------------
      Other Notes and Nonsense: Included are the original Data inis, already backed up, in case you End Users (tm) don't appriciate all the hard work that goes into creating, giving, and keeping up the Mods we do. Remember, these mostly exist for "Eye Candy" and Targets (tm), but I felt it was well worth the effort to try and correct the hit boxes. Also, remember they're really not to be Player Usable, even with cockpit, as the Game Engine has no coding for their proper usage. But, have fun anyway! A note about the destroyed model usage: While not 100%, we work with what we have, after all, it's just a burning, dead wreck on the ground. If a 3d Modeler (tm) wants to build crashed birds; go for it, I says! I know the "Clipper **" name decals are in the wrong font, but after spending an hour and half trying to FIND the correct one, just chose to use one of my script fonts. Deal with it <g>. At present, there are NO plans whatsoever to update the individual aircraft packages. End Users are on their own to locate the aircraft in the CombatAce downloads sections and apply this fix-it pack. --------------------------- If you have any problems, questions, comments, I can be reached in the usual places; CombatAce, SimHQ, or p0rn sites.

    18. Operation Desert Storm Skinpack and Updates for B-52G_89


                                                                                                                                                  Operation Desert Storm Skinpack and Updates for B-52G_89
          This Mod will add ODS skins for the B-52G_89 found here
      some weapon, ini, effects and sound edits are also included to enhance the operation of this classic bomber
          Included:
      Updated and reskinned B-52G_89, Decal set that puts multiple camoflages on each skin and at least a dozen Historical aircraft with Unit markings and nose art, updated weapons common to that version of the aircraft, a fake gunpod pylon for use with dual MERs, and updated sounds and effects.
          Historical Notes:
      Although you can fly em all, the only accurate skin to fly within ODS would be the Jeddah skin. The others flew from off of the various Iraq terrains available.
      Bomb missions markings not included as these are set to represent the beginning of the campaign.
      While many other weapons can be carried, the improved ones are the ones carried during Desert Storm, and strategic weapons (nukes)
      While ALCM pylon is missing (more below), it only affects the Senior Surprise mission from Barksdale AFB (16-17 Jan 1991). The other Bomb Wings did not employ CALCMs
          Installation:
      unzip. put all folders EXCEPT Templates into desired mod folder. Allow overwrites as needed.
          Known Issues:
      While there is currently a new Hound Dog pylon selectable in the download menu, there is not an ALCM pylon. While some sources state that the CALCMs were carried on the stub pylons, I find that not too likely.but it is how it is carried in game at this time. Either I will learn Blender and create one in the future, or a volunteer would be welcomed to create one (likely a faster route). But at time of initial release (24/12/2018) the cruise missiles are carried on the stubs.

    19. F-101B VooDoo. SF.2 2019 Redux.

      Reworked pack of F-101B/F VooDoo.
      Generally old good VooDoo in new dresses.
      There are some small changes in data.ini files mostly in weapon stations section - so Backup your original file. You might not like it.
      Pack contains three versions - In reality, IR sensor was applied to different airframes different block build - not really possible to cover in this game engine limits. To make it easier in this game it will be. This is mostly to cover in some right way decals I've made and units.
      VooDoo '59 without IR sensor - block build 65-96.
      VooDoo '65 with IR sensor  - block build - 100-120.
      VooDoo '69 ANG - same as 65 - just different set of skins.  (I have an additional nation in my install: USA Air National Guard - that's why I have it as a separate model - but in this pack, it is set as USAF bird).
      All new skins in 3072x3072 resolution. New bump maps and specular maps. also in 3072.. plus more than 1000 decals so the set is again huge after unpacking.
      Pack contains 17 skins for Air Defense Command - all squadrons that ever used F-101B (from different time periods to cover years of usage).
      and 7 skin sets for Air National Guard from different time periods. 
      All new decals consisting 451 serial numbers for blocks 65-120. Plus some buzz numbers decals - not all -  as Buzzes disappeared in mid 60's.
      Serial numbers cover B and F models. 

      Backup your original F-101 Folders. Also Decals!

      Some time ago (long ago) I started to use specific AIR-2 Genie for Voodoo - to accommodate it in weapons bay it is moded as specific stationcode=AIM4 - so to appear this Genie in a game you have to copy weapon AIR-2_Genie_101 also. Genie has new skin.

      May the VooDoo be with you.

    20. DC-130A US Navy Director Hercules. SF2. 2018.

      This is extra pack of special version of C-130 Hercules used by US Navy DC-130A.
      Basic modding skills are required to run this mod.  (copy/paste, mod folder structure etc.) also pledged allegiance to the Queen and Country - required.
      Install:
      Copy paste specific folders into a correct destination.
      Fake pilot is required to run this mod. 
      Pack contains all required models and it is based on Dels great new C-130 Pack + update available here on Combat Ace.
      http://combatace.com/files/file/16427-c-130-hercules-superpack/
      update here:
      http://combatace.com/files/file/16480-c-130-hercules-superpack-add-on-1/
      All skins are based on my new templates in 3072x3072
      Credits:
      Original model + pit model: Dels
      C-130 fake pilot mods, BQM-drones,  DC-130 pylons, Skins and decals: yakarov
       
      Ive made all decals for all versions covering years of use in USAF service based on available reference materials.
      So all serial numbers are historically correct. 
      National and squadron markings as always in my case are painted on skins.
      As weapons BAQM-34 - is EOGR missile - can be anything it will not work as drone anyway).
      Pylons are set as TLR - to accommodate EOGR  -but somehow there is an option to load one drone - do not use it. as it will appear somewhere in the middle of aircraft.
      Note:
      In this pack (unlike original Dels C-130) JATO is activated by vector thrust control (similar as in latest Tu-22 pack)
      If you have SEA version of DC-130A - probably you will need to rename pylons:
      DC-130_PylonInn
      DC-130_PylonInnBW
      DC-130_PylonOut
      to avoid conflicts with pylons of SEA versions - which have different colors.

    23. B-58A Hustler Redux 2018 (Wrench 2013)

       
      New\Updated 2048x skins, Decals & Reverted F-106 cockpit...
      Added 1920x Hangar and Loading screens...
      New\Updated pilots...   All ini files are mostly the same... All credits to the original creators in the original readme (below)...I just polished it.....   -------------------------------------------------------------
      Installation:
      ------------------------------------------------------------- >>> Please backup and delete your mod folders: "B-58A" in \Objects\Aircraft and \Objects\Decals folder...or you will not see the new skins...   Copy the contents of the uncompressed "To_Mod_Folder" folder into your Saved Game mod folder. Overwrite any conflicts...   Enjoy! Viper   -------------------------------------------------------------
      Original Readme:
      -------------------------------------------------------------   B-58A "Hustler"        7/8/2011   -- For SF2, Any and All -- This is a modification of Pasko's B-58 Hustler, to bring it more in line with SF2 standards.
      If you have the 2009 SF2 Update, just install this directly OVER your pre-existing folders, allowing the overwrite. If you don't, don't worry about it. Two skins are included (the same basic skin used twice), with all new 100% Historicaly Correct (tm) serial numbers, listing each operational aircraft that served with the 43rd and 305th Bomb Wings. Unfortunatly, I was unable to break them down each into which served with each of the 6 Squadrons in the 2 Wings, but this should do nicely.   There are also 2 cockpits included:
      The original SF2 mod by Dave (USAFMTL), that uses the F-106 pit and,
      An extensivelly modified F-4 Phantom pit (stock 3W ini only -as the cockpit exists in all versions of the game). This one makes use of many 'moves' to drop items out if sight, and uses the physical external model for the windshield framing.
      Neither one is perfect ... this is elaborated further in the "Notes" section, with instructions on what to switch or turn off in the various inis; depending on which you choose. Right now, it's using the Phantom pit, as it really is quite a bit closer than the 106's. In the Loadout ini, several alternate loadouts are listed. These can be accessed from the 3rdWire mission editor screen (for post-Expansion Pak 2 users). Other ini edits repositon the running & landing lights, add 'virtual' flaps (as this aircraft made use of drooping elevons -without the original source file this is impossible to duplicate-), minor engine adjustments, and avionics tweeks. It could also stand a slightly improved FM; the changes and other comments are in the "Notes" section. Weapons are included, the nuke explosion effects are =NOT=. YOu should probably have them from the GunnyPak. Speaking of weapons, a "new" 8kt ARM is included; this is a fictional ARM version of the Genie, more in line with "Fail Safe" and the No.6 Decoy/EW/Escort aircraft, and gives you a SEAD load. Kill SAM sites DEAD!!! Since real decoys don't/can't exist....it's just for fun! There's also and EO version, that can be used for STRIKE or SEAD missions. As always, =READ= the enclosed readme for full, detailed instructions. This package has been broken down into the various folders that SF2 needs/requires/should have, to make it a LOT easier to install. Also, as usual, the expected 'Notes and Other Nonesense' comments by me. This =IS= Required reading -- there are some issues that are addressed there.   ---------------------
      To Install: As always, unzip the "sf2_hustler_pak.zip" to a temp folder or your desktop, or somewhere' else that's easy to find. Then, simply copy/paste the /Objects folder directly OVER the /Objects folder of your SF2 install of choice. All the folders have already been seperated out into their correct format that SF2 requires/wants/needs/should have for all mods. That's it ... Off you go!   -----------------------
      Notes and Other Nonsense: Ok, first and foremost of importance ...when carrying the Two Component Pod for Nuke strikes - DO NOT UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES ORDER YOUR WINGMAN TO 'DROP TANKS'!!!!!!!!!!!!!!- 
      This WILL cause the game to lockup/freeze for some reason, and the only way out is C/A/D to start the Task Manager and kill it that way. You, however, can drop your tank, exposing the multi-megation bomb, This is how it would have been delivered ... the tank was kept until the bomb run, jettisoned, and then the bomb dropped. Apparently, when Wingmen are given the 'attack my target' order, they should automatically dump the externals. (Unfortunately, during STIKE mission testing, it seems that giving your wingman ANY orders like - 'attack my target' may also freeze the game. Don't know what's causing it. Something releated to the nukes/TCP maybe??? Just be advised ... and let the AI handle ALL of these aircraft). They're quite fun for high-mach, low level flying.
      Don't forget, too, these aircraft would have operated alone on their missions into the Soviet Union, and NOT in formations. You may want to send you wingmen home on STRIKE, and do the job yourself. Your choice -- but just remember what happens. Also, the aircraft =REALLY= needs a new flight model ... IMO it has too much drag and not enough lift, and has a tendencay to 'tail stall' during hard turns. Of course, it's a frakking BOMBER, and shouldn't be making fighter-like manuvers. There ARE some clipping issues with the Phantom cockpit as used -- the side window frames disappear. As I'm totally opposed to fucking around the the games clipping distances, these have been left alone. You'll just have to not turn you head too far left or right. I've narrowed down the cockpit views to try and prevent this as much as possible, but it's a moot point. Which brings up another point -- my feelings are that even with cockpits and such, bombers should be left under the control of the Games AI -- it does a much better job of putting iron (or uranium/plutonium in this case) on the target. I'm may also update Pete "pappychksix" Fredrico's SEA camo skin, and will release that when it's done. It needs better decals! Howeve, given the excessively SMALL conventional load ... the aircraft may be better used as a Pathfinder, with high-explosive ARMs, LOTS & LOTS of chaff, and super-powerfull jammers. Essentially, and EB-58s, similiar to the EB-66s as used in Southeast Asia. We'll see....   ----------------------
      -Swapping Cockits: If for any reason, you want to go back to the 106's pit, here's what you do: Open the B-58A_DATA.ini, and scroll down to the [NOSE] section. You'll see this:   [Nose]
      ParentComponentName=Fuselage
      ModelNodeName=Nose
      //ShowFromCockpit=FALSE
      ShowFromCockpit=TRUE you'll note I already have the switch in place to turn off the nose, thereby removing the external windows/windshield framing. Simply uncomment the 'ShowFromCockpit=FALSE', and comment OUT the 'ShowFromCockpit=TRUE It would then look like this:   [Nose]
      ParentComponentName=Fuselage
      ModelNodeName=Nose
      ShowFromCockpit=FALSE
      //ShowFromCockpit=TRUE Save and close the data ini. In the B-58A.ini, where the cockpit statements are, you'll see this: [AircraftData]
      AircraftFullName=B-58A Hustler
      AircraftShortName=B-58
      AircraftDataFile=B-58_data.ini
      //CockpitDataFile=B-58_cockpit.ini  <---
      CockpitDataFile=F-4E_COCKPIT.INI    <---
      HangarScreen=B-58_Hangar.bmp
      LoadoutImage=B-58_LOADOUT.bmp
      LoadingScreen=B-58_loading.bmp
      LoadoutFile=B-58_loadout.ini
      AvionicsDLL=Avionics60.dll
      AvionicsDataFilename=B-58_AVIONICS.INI   You do pretty much the same thing, commenting out the F-4E cockpit ini, and uncommenting the B-58 cockpit ini. Thusly:   [AircraftData]
      AircraftFullName=B-58A Hustler
      AircraftShortName=B-58
      AircraftDataFile=B-58_data.ini
      CockpitDataFile=B-58_cockpit.ini
      //CockpitDataFile=F-4E_COCKPIT.INI
      HangarScreen=B-58_Hangar.bmp
      LoadoutImage=B-58_LOADOUT.bmp
      LoadingScreen=B-58_loading.bmp
      LoadoutFile=B-58_loadout.ini
      AvionicsDLL=Avionics60.dll
      AvionicsDataFilename=B-58_AVIONICS.INI   As stated above, NEITHER is a perfect choice .. the Hustler had a rather unique cockpit, and did not have the radar display or RWR in the pilot's compartment. These was handled by the Radar Navigator (aka Bombadaier) and the Defense Systems Operator seated behind him. For gaming purposes, this will have to suffice. You'll also have to rename the 'xCockpit' folder back to just plane Cockpit. This has all the F-106 cockpit bits. Of course, if one wants to convert to totally AI, simple comment out BOTH cockpt inis, and it'll revert to computer/game AI control.   -----------------------

      Original Readme txt
      -------------------------------------------------------------   Boeing B-47B Stratojet (Veltro2k 2015)   The Boeing B-47 Stratojet was a long range, six-engine, turbojet-powered strategic bomber designed to fly at high subsonic speed and at high altitude to avoid enemy interceptor aircraft. The B-47's primary mission was to drop nuclear bombs on the Soviet Union. With its engines carried in nacelles under the swept wing, the B-47 was a major innovation in post-World War II combat jet design, and contributed to the development of modern jet airliners.   The B-47 entered service with the United States Air Force's Strategic Air Command (SAC) in 1951. It never saw combat as a bomber, but was a mainstay of SAC's bomber strength during the late 1950s and early 1960s, and remained in use as a bomber until 1965. It was also adapted to a number of other missions, including photographic reconnaissance, electronic intelligence and weather reconnaissance, remaining in service as a reconnaissance aircraft until 1969 and as a testbed until 1977.
