    1. SF2 F-16A Block 1 (TMF) Pack

      SF2 F-16A Block 1 (TMF) Pack       6/28/2024
      -For SF2, Any and All-(SF2:I Required, Full 5 Merged Suggested)
      - Another 1stGen Salvage Operation -
      This is a rebuild of TMF's F-16A Block 1 Fighting Falcon. This is =JUST= the block 1, with its short life span (78-90, including exported/European built versions). Having SF2:I is required, as this mod makes use of the Netz's destroyed model.
      This mod is set up and labeled to cause =NO= conflicts with the myriad of F-16 mods, both based off the Third Wire Netz or any add-on Vipers. Skins remain in their original bmp format, in their original size and resolution. Most markings are decals, with the exception of some painted on national markings. Decal Randomization is TRUE. Each skin is provided with 24 historically correct serial number decals (for the A block 1).  All necessary items are provided; drop tanks. decals, pilots, sounds, and so forth. Weapons used are all stock in-game items. If I missed anything, PLEASE let me know and I'll get it fixed. Please read the "Notes" for how to select the alternative STRIKE loadout.
      The canopy operates with the Standard Animations Keystroke (tm), Shift/0 (zero). The refueling door operates with the Shift/1 (one) keystroke. This also makes use of the expanded RWR listings, and hopefully I've gotten all them tgas together.
      The aircraft is supplied with 3 skins for the original "starting" Air Force users:
      USAF: 16th TFS, 388th TFW
      Belgian Air Force: No.359 Squadron (<1979)
      Netherlands Air Force (KLU) No.322 Squadron (<1980)
      Those squadrons in the stock 3W squadronlist.ini (BAF & KLU) have their displayed name activated via either my (patent pending) fake SqTail decal, or a squadron badge decal, or both.
      When in-game, on the Aircraft Selection Drop down you'll see:
      F-16A Blk 1 Fighting Falcon (TMF)
      So you can't mistake it for anything other than what it is. This will also differentialize THIS one from the many other Falcon mods zipping around, including the stock 3W one.
      As always fairly easy to follow, yet detailed install instructions are included. So, please read them. The original readme is included. The 'Change Log' is, of course, in the Notes section below.
      Good Hunting & Happy Landings!

    2. 3rd Wing Moves North

              3rd Wing Moves North
      The 3rd Tactical Fighter Wing was slated to leave Clark AB in the Phillipines in 1992. However the eruption of Mt Pinatubo in June 1991 caused a much more rapid departure than planned from the Philippines. The 3rd Wing set up shop at Elmendorf AFB, Alaska in December 1991, taking over from the 21st Wing that had been the host unit.
      By January 1994, the 3 Wing had the 19th and 54th Fighter Squadrons operating F-15C and D Eagles, the 90th Fighter Squadron operating the F-15E Strike Eagle, The 517th Airlift Squadron operating the C-130H Hercules and the 962nd Airborne Air Control Squadron operating the E-3A Sentry
      This mod sets up everything you need to send the 3rd Wing or any of its elements into battle in the mid 1990s. While primarily focused on the Pacific theater of operations, the 90th Fighter Squadron did participate in Operation Deny Flight in Europe from October 1995 until start of 1996.
              Included
      Aircraft: F-15C/D_91, F-15E_92, C-130H3, E-3A  as well as the decals and pilots for these aircraft
      Weapons for each aircraft as was available in the mid 1990s
      Effects and sounds as needed to support the aircraft

    3. F-22A Raptor Add-on

      F-22A Raptor Add-on
      October 13th, 2021 (1st Release)
      by yakarov79, baffmeister, Crusader, guuruu and Menrva

      >For Strike Fighters 2 games
      This is a high quality add-on of the F-22A Raptor aircraft. The original model had been made by Heberth, and it was released in alpha stage.
      Upon noticing room for improvement, yakarov79 helped finalize the 3d model with numerous, additional details; accurate pylons and rail launchers, new external fuel tanks, highly detailed rack and small diameter bomb 3d models, canopy and thrust-vectoring animations, high-res skin with specular and bump maps, updated cockpit model, and so on.
      A realistic, well-thought flight model has been produced by our expert, baffmeister. Moreover, Crusader offered his great expertise to improve upon his previous modification for the Raptor's avionics. All their efforts have raised the quality bar of the project I had started; much credits to them all.
      I further polished the package by adding historically accurate weapon loadouts, my selection of sounds (including authentic engine samples by guuruu), realistic camouflage shapes and colours, reworked decals for the actual USAF's F-22A squadrons, new cockpit textures and other tweaks here and there. Each squadron has got historically correct serial numbers, and they appear in chronological order in the loadout screen; the serial numbers at the bottom of the list are those of aircraft that joined that squadron for last, while the serials at the beginning of the list indicate those aircraft that were available to that squadron for first.
      Like you would expect in an opera omnia, I even reproduced three unique paint schemes of real Raptors; the air superiority camouflage of the EMD 91-4001 Prototype of September 1997, the temporary "Blue Nose" decoration of the "Cripes A'Mighty" Raptor assigned to the 149th Fighter Squadron in April 2010, and a generic Mid-Production livery sporting the markings of the last Raptor ever produced that flew for the first time in March 2012.
      Templates by yakarov79, tweaked by yours truly, are included for your skinning fantasies.
      Notes:
      -The cockpit is not yet accurate, as various details couldn't be reworked due to RL and time constraints. We were working on a brand new cockpit with accurate HUD and displays. Slimers with correct illumination were also planned. Hopefully they will be a thing in a future re-release.
      -The aircraft folder is named "F-22A", just like the one included in a number of mod packages which use an old 3d model by Dels. In order to avoid mismatches and bugs of any sort, it's highly suggested to either remove or rename the aircraft folder using Dels' Raptor 3d model.
      -GPS guidance bombs (EOGB) do not work as intended in SF2, there are issues about them not locking on target and about AI behaviour. The GBU-39 has been set as an EOGR, so it works like a missile; this is a needed workaround to have them loaded properly on a rack while keeping the GPS guidance property.
      -You need to tweak the SoundList.ini file in order to fully experience any new sounds. Read "(Add to SoundList)" for further details, and remember to extract the SoundList.ini file from the FlightData.cat archive, if you do not have a custom one in your mod folder already.

      >Credits (in no particular order):
      -Heberth, for making this (once forgotten) fantastic 3d model.
      -Julhelm, for sharing the files of his superb F-22A cockpit 3d model, allowing yakarov79 to improve upon it.
      -yakarov79, for his invaluable help in finalizing the 3d model and remaking the base textures; you have my gratitude.
      -baffmeister, for his excellent flight model; it's thanks to him if this beauty flies as good as it looks.
      -Crusader, for reworking the avionics enhancement made for Julhelm's F-22A cockpit, and for improving the AIM missiles.
      -guuruu, for sharing his RWR symbols improvement mod and for making better engine sounds.
      -ravenclaw_007, for the AIM missiles from his top notch Weapons Pack 2, the GBU-32 JDAM bomb and the ACES II seat 3d models.
      -viper63a, for his old F-22A USAF Raptors Redux package, from which I borrowed decals.
      -simonmiller416, for his smokeless rocket effects mod.
      -mue, for his LOD Viewer which helped immensely in the making of the skins.
      -Cocas, for further help given to Heberth for the aircraft's 3d model.
      -My girlfriend, for supporting me in all of my endeavours.
      Additional ReadMe files by yakarov79 and baffmeister have been included among few others; be sure to read those to know about their work in better detail.

      >Disclaimer:
      This is a freeware; yet it can be redistributed ONLY in other CombatACE mods/mod packages.
      This mod may NOT in any way, shape or form be used in any payware additions.

    4. 52nd Fighter Wing 1994

      52nd Fighter Wing 1994
      This mod brings together all of the aircraft of the 52nd Fightere Wing at Spangdahlem AB, Federal Republic of Germany in 1994. It features historic serials and skins for the era
          Included
      A-10A_93, F-16C/D_B50, F-15C/D_91 aircraft
      Sounds, effects and decals for all of the above
      Assorted Weapons
      Special Fuel Tanks to allow selection from different aircraft.
          Installation
      unzip, add contents of "2 Mod Folder" to the mod folder of your choice. allow overwrites
      NOTE ON SPECIAL TANKS AND MIXED FLIGHTS
      I HAVE SET UP A SERIES OF ROCKET/FUEL TANKS (MINUS THE ROCKETS) SO THAT FUEL TANKS OTHER THAN WHAT IS NATIVE TO THE AIRCRAFT CAN BE SELECTED, ALLOWING MIX FLIGHTS OF AIRCRAFT. THE TANKS FOR EACH AIRCRAFT IS IDENTIFIED BY A NUMBER AT FRONT (IE "370 GAL TANK") WHILE THE NON REGULAR ONES HAVE THE AIRCRAFT NAME IN FRONT (IE F-16 370 GAL TANK). THEY WILL APPEAR FOR THE MOST PART AT THE BOTTOM OF THE MENU SCROLL
      IF YOU CHOOSE TO DO THIS, IT IS HIGHLY RECCOMENDED THAT YOU SELECT THE F-16C, THEN CHANGE TO THE F-15 OR A-10 IN THE LOADOUT MENU SCREEN ( flightname 1-1 IF YOU WANT TO CHANGE THE LEAD). THIS WILL ALLOW YOU TO USE ALL AVAILABLE WEAPONS, AS THE F-16 CAN CARRY ANYTHING THE A-10 OR F-15 CAN.

    5. Sentry '04: USAF E-3B/C's of the 552nd ACW and PACAF

                                          SENTRY '04:  USAF E-3B/C's of the 552nd ACW and PACAF
          Since 1976 the USAF has used the E-3 Sentry to control the air battlespace it finds itself in. Starting in 1995, the E-3 fleet began to recieve the Block 30/35 upgrade. These upgrades improved its communications, navigation, and electronic support equipment over the older versions. The most visible change was the ESM pods on the cheeks, and additional fairings on the chin and rear of the aircraft. These upgrades continued until the entire fleet was completed in fall of 2001.
         This mod represents the E-3B/C fleet at a time of major restructuring, with the 552nd Air Control Wing having reduced to 3 squadrons and the two PACAF squadrons (961st AACS at Kadena and 962nd AACS at Elmendorf) operating 3 of each.
                  Included
      This mod includes skin for the E-3B aircraft with fake pilot upgrades, skins and decals for all 5 squadrons active in 2004 as well as a 552nd ACW overall skin
                  Installation
      unzip mod, add contents of "2 Mod Folder" to mod folder of your choice. allow overwrites
                  Known Issues
      - The Sentry aircraft pull hard to port (left) when taking off. This only occurs when the player is hand flying the aircraft, when  AI or autopilot flies this is not an issue
      - The cockpit is not a great match for the aircraft, however SF2 does not support any of their (E-3 or CT-49) original missions as player flyable and they were originally intended to be eye candy. Until we get a 3d modeller that wants to do a new E-3 or even 707 proper pit, this is how it will be.

    6. Gunfighters! 366th Wing, Mountain Home's Mini Air Force in the 1990s

                                                   Gunfighters!             366th Wing, Mountain Home's Mini Air Force in the 1990s
          In the 1990s, CSAF General Merril McPeak had a concept to test; expeditionary wings that had the entire range of capabilities to wage an air campaign. This lead to change for the 366th Fighter Wing, "Gunfighters", as they transitioned from a F-11 fighter unit to a composite wing, with bomber aircraft, tankers, and fighters specializing in air to air, SEAD and interdiction roles.
          The wing participated in several exercises and combat operations throughout the 1990s to validate the composite wing concept. Ultimately, economics of operating so many different aircraft types in one wing and base led to the consolodation of the Wing as a F-15E Strike Eagle unit.
          But, for about a decade, the Gunfighters hosted an entire mini air force, ready for its' nation's call to action. This mod is a tribute to that experiment.
              Installation
      This package includes everything you need to get into action. Unzip the mod, ope the "2. Mod Folder", and place contents into your chosen mod folder. Allow overwrites as necessary.

    7. SENTRY : Aircraft of the NATO E-3A Component

                                                                                            SENTRY:  Aircraft of the NATO E-3A Component
          Since 1983, NATO has operated international squadrons of E-3A Sentrys, commonly referred to as AWACS from Geilenkirchen AB. Registered in Luxembourg due to international law, the NATO AEW&C Force held watch during the final decade of the Cold War, participated in operations over the Balkans and Libya, and assisted with US homeland defense after the attacks on 9/11/01.
          During the late 1990s, the NATO Sentry fleet gained upgrades in line with the USAF's Block 30/35 upgrades. These included distinctive fairings on the aircraft chin, cheek and tail housing ESM equipment. The aircraft retained their original E-3A designations after the upgrades.
          For several years, retired 707 airliners were also operated as trainers to reduce E-3 flying hours and as transports to support NAEWF missions as well as other NATO missions when available. These aircraft were designated CT-49A and operated unti the mid 2010s.
                  Included
      This mod includes skin for the E-3A, an E-3A_98 aircraft with fake pilot upgrades and CT-49A trainer aircraft, as well as decals and a set of ESM pods for the newer E-3A
                  Installation
      unzip mod, add contents of "2 Mod Folder" to mod folder of your choice. allow overwrites
                  Known Issues
      - The Sentry aircraft pull hard to port (left) when taking off. This only occurs when the player is hand flying the aircraft, when  AI or autopilot flies this is not an issue
      - The cockpit is not a great match for the aircraft, however SF2 does not support any of their (E-3 or CT-49) original missions as player flyable and they were originally intended to be eye candy. Until we get a 3d modeller that wants to do a new E-3 or even 707 proper pit, this is how it will be.

    9. Working Past Retirement: Metrea KC-135R

      Working Past Retirement: Metrea KC-135R
      This skinpack is a representation of the 4 KC-135R operated by Metrea Strategic Mobility. Bought from Singapore in 2019, these contract tankers are supporting USAF as well as NATO operations

              Included*
      KC-135R (Civil) aircraft
      two skins to highlight the blue Shamu scheme (3 serial numbers) and the Agean Ghost Scheme (1 serial number)
      Cockpit and ini edits to make player flyable
      drogue "weapon", addable in the loadout screens

          Required
      a legal functioning install of any SF2 version
          Installation
      unzip this mod, then install new mod folder categories to your mod folder (Aircraft to aircraft etc)
      allow overwrites
      fire up game, take off and go pass gas
          Known Issues
      -This is meant as eye candy. unfortunately, SF2 doesnt support air to air refueling so the best to be done is set up a recon mission and then park it in an orbit.
      -Also, the C-130 cockpit is not too accurate. it is included mainly so that it can be player selected (i had to test it somehow). remember that there is no air to air refueling in game, so these are more eye candy than operational birds
      - there are currently no wingtip MPRS pods for these aircraft. Once some have been sourced (via new aircraft model or pod model) they will be added in
      -the Agean Ghost is not 100% accurate. there were not very good pics of the wings, plus model quirks meant some patches had to be put on each wing ot allow for color onthe airbrakes (all 4 of which were mapped to the two on the left wing)

      *Wagner CD not included

      CREDITS
      TMF- the original 3D modeland original USAF skin.
      Florian- NATO skins and tweeks to USAF. While I prefer decals, these are good enough I only had to do
      serial numbers and nose badges. Also provided the original inspiration for the ESM pods part of the mod
      yakarov79- the fake pilot ESM pods
      Dave- consultation and approvals on the original project
      Daddyairplanes- serial numbers, new arrangement for skins, general ini editing

    12. Israeli T-6 Texan II "Efroni"

      Today (26/4/23) is israel's independence day, so ive decided to release this skin/ modified aircraft:
      This mod represents the T-6 Texan II in Israeli service. I've modified Dels's T-6 to have aerobatic smoke  just like the IAF aerobatics team has.  To activate it you simply need to push your throttle to max.
      To add this mod simply drop the files in the corresponding file locations (Sounds in Sounds, Aircraft in Aircraft, etc).

      YOU MAY
       
      - Have fun with this mod
      - Use it as you see fit once you download it, even modify it as you see fit
      - Create your own textures as you see fit and upload them under your name
       
      IF you wish to send me any modified core files (I don't need to review skins as that doesn't affect any core files) please PM me the modified files and I will check them out. There is no exception to this policy given my attitude towards staying out of jail. I will check them out and yay or nay the decision, but if I can edit any files in order to not go to jail, I will inform you and that will be it. I understand you may have information of a sensitive nature that you may have access to and frankly it does not belong in any files of this download. If that bothers you then please don't send me sensitive information, I think I've made it clear that I'm not going to jail in order to appease to players.

    17. 23d Wing Pope AFB 1994

      23d Wing Pope AFB 1994
      In the 1990s, the USAF experimented with composite wings that would have everything needed within a single unit for deployment into a regional fight.
      The 23 Wing was formed in 1992 to bring about this vision, as applied to direct support of US Army forces. By 1994, 4 squadrons were ready at Pope AFB NC
      to support the US Army's 82d ABN DIV at neighboring Fort Bragg. The 2d and 41st Airlift Squadrons flying the C-130E Hercules, the 74th Fighter Squadron flying
      the F-16C/D Block 40 Vipers, and the 75th Fighter Squadron flying the A-10A Warthog. As is tradition for the 23d Wing, which traces its lineage to the
      Flying Tigers of World War 2, every aircraft in the wing sported a sharks mouth.
      This mod brings together everything needed to get the 23d Wing into the fight. Complete aircraft (including a newly revamped F-16D Block 40 from ravenclaw007), period specific weapons, sounds and effects.
      Included
      Viper Team F-16C Block 40 and 75th FS skin
      ravenclaw007/Viper Team F-16D Block 40 and 75th FS skin
      Dels C-130E_SKE with 2d ALS, 41st ALS Grey and 23d Wing Euro 1 skins
      Various period specific weapons (actively in use 1994-1996)
      Installation
      unzip folder * drop into mod folder of your choice * allow overwrites
      Known Issues
      The C-130 and its weapons are primarlily eye candy. There are unfortuneatly no paratroop drop missions in SF2, and so if you want to drop say 1/325 INF onto a drop zone,
      you will need to select a recon mission and punch those partarooper out by hand
      I have been having issues getting the LAPES Sheridan tank to create a "crater" after dropping. it is still included for the visuals of puching a tank out the back of a Herk,
      and because there was still an Airborne Armor Bn at Bragg in 1994. But at this time the tank will disappear on contact with the ground

      UPDATE 31 DEC 20220
      XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX
      After further research on other Hog units, and closer examination of the TW model, i have included Spectre8750's A-10A_93 model with updated numbers list.
      I also changed several serials after determining that they were at other bases in 1995. The deduction I used to find the C-130 serials didnt work as well
      for the Hogs. But it is fixed and I even discovered two Tiger Shark Hogs that were still in Euro 1 camoflage at the time. The A-10A_93 features two skins for
      the bulk of the gray birds and the two green ones.

    18. F-14A Iranian Bombcat

      "F-14A Iranian Bombcat"
       
      --- !!! Requires SF2NA !!! 
      --- It uses AvionicsF14A.dll, F-14A_77_Cockpit.lod and F-14A_77.lod model by ThirdWire.
      --- This was tested at July 2013 patch level, on an "All 5 Merged" install.
      Modification: 
      Some data of the weapon pylons, loadout, avionics, cockpit, for make it possible to use the F-14A as a fighter bomber through A/G mode with CCIP on HUD.
      Data of the leading edge slats, now movement it's automatic (depends by Angle of Attack).
      I've added vapor effects for the fuselage and air intakes (visible during high g maneuvers).
      Canopy now can be open by pressing shift-1 command.
      I changed orientation of Iran on Nations.ini, from friend to enemy (now you can engage fight with nato and israel air force jets).

    19. EAV-8B

      This is the AV-8B Plus Harrier in service with the Spanish Navy, known as EAV-8B
      Basic modding skills are required to run this mod.  (copy/paste, mod folder structure etc.) A fake pilot is needed to run this mod. 
      It is designed for and works only in SF2 series.
       
      Skin is in 4096x4096 format. So you can easily resize down.  If you have problems running this in game. Resize skins to lower resolutions
      Animations:
      1= canopy open - close
      4= refueling probe - beware of a speed limit
      3= night vision mode - not really helping but it is there - inside and outside animation.
      ************************************************************************************
      You can exlplore ini files for some additional features like in cockpit "FLIR" feed on HUD .
      AAQ-28 can be loaded only on station number 5 and centerline
      AIM-120 can be loaded only on stations 2 and 6.
      ECM also activates RWR on digital display indicator - even if ECM pod is not loaded.
      for proper sound work you should add these lines into soundlist.ini

      SoundFileXXX=Equalizer

    20. Samurai, Headhunters, Panthers and Foxes: PACAF F-16C/Ds in the 1990s pt 1

                                                    Samurai, Headhunters, Panthers and Foxes
                                                          PACAF F-16C/Ds in the 1990s pt 1
      PACAF started transitioning their F-16 fleet in the very early 1990s from the initial F-16A/B models to the more advanced C/D models. 8th Fighter Wing in Korea and 432d Fighter Wing in Japan received Block 30 versions while the 18th Fighter Squadron in Alaska recieved the Block 40s. These units participated in many of the actions the USAF was involved in; including Deny Flight detachments in USAFE's AOR and no fly zone operations over Iraq.

      Included
      F-16C and D,  Blocks 30 and 40
      various period specific weapons and pilots
      various ini edits to match the era
      new hangar and loading screens

      ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
      NOTE: The D models have very few serial numbers to each unit. most units only had one or two family models.the best use for these is to add on as a member of a flight of single seaters. The load outs are the same so you will be
      able to load them out easy

      NOTE 1: The B and D models have very few serial numbers to each unit. most units only had one or two family models. the best use for these is to add on as a member of a flight of single seaters rather than as a flight of their own. The loadouts are the same so you will be able to load the same weapons.
      *************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************
      NOTE 2: The F-16A Block 10s do not have corresponding B models at this time. The existing  Generation 1 models in my opinion need more work than is feasible to bring them to SF2 standards. There are entries in the numbers.lst for B models in the event a new Block 10 two seater becomes available.
      ************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************

      was shot down in June 1995.

    23. Air Defense Vipers: F-16A/B ADF in the 1990s

                        Air Defense Vipers
                   F-16A/B ADFs in the 1990s
      This mod  represents the various units that used the F-16A/B ADF in US Air National Guard service during the 1990s.
      It also includes the ADFs that were provided to the Royal Jordanian Air Force in 1997. Featuring new F-16A/B Block 15 ADF models from ravenclaw_007.

      Included
      new F-16A and B Block 15 ADF variants from ravenclaw_007
      various period specific weapons and pilots
      various ini edits to match the era
      new hangar and loading screens
      NOTE: The B models have very few serial numbers to each unit. most units only had one or two family models. the
      best use for these is to add on as a member of a flight of single seaters rather than as a flight of their own.
      The load outs are the same so you will be able to load the same weapons.
      *****************************************************************************************************************
      LOADING SCREEN NOTE:   I will be including various loading screens with the diferent packs available.  In the          F-16B_B15ADF.ini you will find these lines
              LoadingScreen=F-16B_Loading_114.jpg
              //LoadingScreen=F-16C_Loading_111.jpg
      installing this mod will have default loading screen with the Texas ANG aircraft. if you already had a different version and prefer that one, simply remove the "//" from the one you want and add to the one without.

    24. Charlie Vipers on Guard Part 2: Block 30s in the 90s

                   Charlie Vipers on Guard
                   Part 2: Block 30s in the 90s
      This mod is the second of three to represent the various versions of the F-16C/D in US Air National Guard service during the 1990s. It was a busy time with potential conflicts in Korea and active operations ongoing over Iraq and the Balkans. This mod aims to show the
      units as they were at that time. Included is a  F-16D Block 30 modified from the Aggressor F-16D to cover the two seaters in each unit that had them.

      Included
      Team Viper F-16C Block 30
      Modified Team Viper F-16D Block 30
      various period specific weapons and pilots
      various ini edits to match the era
      new hangar and loading screens
      NOTE: The D models have very few serial numbers to each unit. most units only had one or two family models. the best use for these is to add on as a member of a flight of single seaters. The load outs are the same so you will be able to load teh same weapons.

    25. New canopy structure for the F-35A, F-35B and F-35C

      New canopy structure for the F-35A, F-35B and F-35C v1.1.0

      Important ! At first I would like to thank GKABS who was so kind to create 
      this FakePilot element. 

      Indeed, this mod uses the FakePilot method.

      This is mainly an update for the F-35A/B/C Lightning II V 2.5 for SF2 by 
      FastCargo : 
      https://combatace.com/files/file/9051-f-35abc-lightning-ii-v-25-for-sf2/

      Before using this mod you must install the F-35s.
      The mod contains:
      - the F-35 data.ini files for each 3 versions of the Lightning II fighter.
      - The GKABS mod
      - The FakePilot mod
      - Update by Paulopanz (see NOTAM) 

      NOTAM for v1.1.0 : 
      - the opening canopy animation of the F-35B is deleted 
      and the position of the new structure is updated with new texture.
      - by Paulo :
      - F-35A taxing dancing fixed [Baffmeister's tricks rule ...]
      - F-35B taxing dancing fixed [a better take off like Seaharrier or Yak-36 should nedeed]
      - F-35C taxing dancing fixed; medium carrier set [no LPD LPH etc usage like F-35B]; wingfold and canopy opened on deck [the addon parts are on pilot and not seat entries]

      In order to install it you must put the objects folder into your SF2 
      directory.

      Best regards
      Coupi
