    1. WW2 PTO PV-1 Ventura (Early)

      SF2 WW2 PTO PV-1 Ventura (Early) by Veltro2K        8/30/2014
       -- Something for the WW2 PTO players --
      = For SF2 ONLY, Full-5 Merged (Reccomended/Preferred) =
      **Note: This mod will -NOT- work in 1stGen game installs at any patch level.A Full-5 merged is reccomended.**
      This is a the release of Veltro2K's =NEW= Lockheed/Vega PV-1 Ventura USN Patrol Bomber. This represents the early "glass nosed" version as used in the PTO.  
      There are 4 skin/decals set(s) in the package:
      USN (42-43, NS Blue over NS Grey, star-and-ball)
      USN43 (star-&-bar, 3 tone)
      and
      RNZAF (overall blue/grey mid-war light blue roundels, as used from Henderson Field)
      RNZAF43 (overall blue/grey, roundel-and-bar)
      The skins use the SF2 "date switch", and will change in approx September, 1943
      Although the US Navy skins are tagged for VPB-138, they are representative of pretty much ALL USN PTO Ventura units from Australia to the Aleutians.
      The RNZAF skins, while tagged for No.3 Squadron, are also fairly representative of NZ units in the SoWesPac regions of the PTO.
      All markings are decals, and Decal Randomization is TRUE. Serial number/BuNums are accurate for the model depicted, but should be considered 'generic' in nature, as they reprsent no specific unit. Lighting is as accurate as possible, given the lack of pictures of the bottom.
      Engine sounds, pilot figures, and skin-specific Hangar Screens are included. Weapons, guns, bombs, etc, are NOT; you should have them already.  Operational service dates are rounded to 'whole months', and ARE relatively correct for ALL in-theatre usages.
      When in game, you'll see
      PV-1 Ventura (Early) (v2k)
      on the Aircraft Selection Drop down menu. As different versions are planned, this will help keep them diferentiated, so to speak.
      As always, fairly easy to follow, yet detailed install instructions are included. PLEASE read them!!!  
      Happy Landings!!

      USN (42-43, NS Blue over NS Grey, star-and-ball)

      and
      RNZAF (dark blue over grey mid-war light blue roundels)
      RNZAF43 (dark blue overgrey, roundel-and-bar, various Pacfic Places (tm) )
      The skins use the SF2 "date switch", and will change in approx September, 1943
      Although the US Navy skins are tagged for various VB/VPB squadrons, they are representative of pretty much ALL USN PTO Ventura units from Australia to the Aleutians.
      The RNZAF skins, while tagged for No.3 Squadron, are also fairly representative of NZ units in the SoWesPac regions of the PTO.
      All markings are decals, and Decal Randomization is TRUE. Serial number/BuNums are accurate for the model depicted, but should be considered 'generic' in nature, as they reprsent no specific unit. Lighting is as accurate as possible, given the lack of pictures of the bottom.

      = For SF2 ONLY, Full-5 Merged (Reccomended/Preferred) =
      **Note: This mod will -NOT- work in 1stGen game installs at any patch level. A Full-5 merged is reccomended.**
      This is a the release of Veltro2K's =NEW= Lockheed/Vega PV-1 Ventura USN Patrol Bomber. This represents the late-production solid nosed, with 5 guns (3 in a 'chin pak' under the nose) as used in the PTO.  
      There are 1 skin/decals set(s) in the package:
      USN (star-&-bar, 3 tone)

      Engine sounds, pilot figures, Hangar & Loading Screens are included. Weapons, guns, bombs, etc, for the most part, are NOT; you should have them already. However, a set of HVAR mounts, the rockets themselves, and the drop tank is.  Operational service dates are rounded to 'whole months', and ARE relatively correct for ALL in-theatre usages.

    4. WW2 PTO PV-2 Harpoon Package

      SF2 WW2 PTO PV-2 Harpoon by Veltro2K        9/21/2014
       -- Something for the WW2 PTO players --
      = For SF2 ONLY, Full-5 Merged (Reccomended/Preferred) =
      **Note: This mod will -NOT- work in 1stGen game installs at any patch level. A Full-5 merged is reccomended.**
      This is a the release of Veltro2K's =NEW= Lockheed/Vega PV-2 Harpoon USN Patrol Bomber. 
      There are 2 skin/decals set(s) in the package:
      USN (star-&-bar, 3 tone for WW2)
      DGNB (dark gloss Navy blue overall, post-war)
      Although the 3 tone skin is tagged for VPB-138 (Northern Pacific/Aleutian Islands region), it is representative of pretty much ALL USN PTO Ventura units from Australia to the Aleutians.
      The DGNB skin is tagged for VP-772, a post-war reserve squadron based at NAS Los Alimitos, California circa 1948. The base blue skin can also be used for several of the other post-war users.
      All markings are decals, and Decal Randomization is TRUE. Serial number/BuNums are accurate for the model depicted, but should be considered 'generic' in nature, as they reprsent no specific unit. Lighting is as accurate as possible, given the lack of pictures of the bottom.
      Engine sounds, pilot figures, and a 'box art' Hangar Screen are included. Weapons, guns, bombs, etc, for the most part, are NOT; you should have them already. However, a set of HVAR mounts, the rockets themselves, and the drop tank is.  Operational service dates are rounded to 'whole months', and ARE relatively correct for ALL in-theatre usages.

    5. C-60 Lodestar

      SF2 WW2 C-60 Lodestar by Veltro2K        9/15/2014
       -- Something for the WW2 players --
      = For SF2 ONLY, Full-5 Merged (Reccomended/Preferred) =
      **Note: This mod will -NOT- work in 1stGen game installs at any patch level.A Full-5 merged is reccomended.**
      This is a the release of Veltro2K's =NEW= Lockheed/Vega Model 18 Lodestar transport/light cargo aircraft. This represents the C-57 type as used by US airline companies, impressed into military service, and new build C-60s. In reality, this was the first of the type, the Ventura and later the Harpoon being evolutions of this airframe.
      There are 2 skin/decals set(s) in the package:
      AAF (early 42-43, star-and-ball (withOUT red center) )
      AAF43 (star-&-bar)
      both are in standard USAAF OD/NG
      and
      NM (a natural metal finsh for late war, or civilian users)
      The OD skins use the SF2 "date switch", and will change in approx September, 1943. The NM skin is only selectable via the usual drop-down on the Loadout Screen.
      All markings are decals, and Decal Randomization is TRUE. Serial number are accurate for the model depicted, but should be considered 'generic' in nature, as they reprsent no specific unit. 
      Engine sounds, pilot figures are included, but there is NO Hangar Screen, as transports really don't have anything to do in the SF/SF2 series. Operational service dates are rounded to 'whole months', and ARE relatively correct for ALL in-theatre usages.
      Like the Venturas, the cabin door is operated by the Standard Animation Keystroke (tm), Shift/0. It is also set for the parked animation, so as to be Open when sitting on the ramp.
      When in game, you'll see
      C-60 Lodestar (v2k)
      on the Aircraft Selection Drop down menu. As different versions are planned, this will help keep them diferentiated, so to speak.
      As always, fairly easy to follow, yet detailed install instructions are included. PLEASE read them!!!  Give the Notes section a read, too!
      Happy Landings!!

    6. SF2 RAF Washington B.1 (B-29A) Pack

      SF2 RAF Washington B.1 (B-29A) Pack 4/26/2015
       
      = For SF2, Full-5 Merged (Reccomended/Preferred) =
       
      *Note: This mod will =NOT= work in SF/Wo* 1stGen game installs at any patch level, due to the extensive modifications made to fit them into the SF2 environment. End Users � that attempt it, do so at their own risk. A Full 5 Merged install is reccomened at the LATEST patch level.*
       
      This mod represents B-29 Superfortress bombers used by the RAF in the early 1950s. This is a "country specific" mod, =ONLY= designed for Royal Air Force usage. It is the complete aircraft, including a 'new(ish)' cockpit. All items, excepting weapons are included.
       
      This is a complete revamp of the now no longer available 1st Gen mod by Bob "howling1" Hauser. This mod is dedicated to his memory, both as a Person, and a Modder.
       
      The skin herein represents Washingtons from
       
      No 44 "Rhodesia" Squadron
       
      All markings are decals. Serial numbers, while correct for this model, are to be considered generic in nature. Decal randomization is TRUE. The only 'nose art' is the squadron badge (also a decal!). Other squadron can easily be done by creating a new squadron letters decal. (and nose badge, of course).
      The aircraft carries standard USAAF/USAF WW2 era bombs. The Tallboy stations remain active.
       
      When in game you'll see
       
      Washington B.1 (B-29A)
       
      on the aircraft selection drop down.
       
      As always, fairly easy to follow, yet detailed install instructions are included. So, please read them. Also, give the "Notes" section a read too. There are "Operational Notations" and other important data you should know.

    7. SF2 KAW B-29 Superfortress Pak

      SF2 KAW B-29 Superfortress Pak 4/26/2015
       
      = For SF2, Full-5 Merged (Reccomended/Preferred) =
       
      *Note: This mod will =NOT= work in SF/Wo* 1stGen game installs at any patch level, due to the extensive modifications made to fit them into the SF2 environment. End Users � that attempt it, do so at their own risk. A Full 5 Merged install is reccomened at the LATEST patch level.*
       
      This mod represents B-29 Superfortress bombers used by the USAF during the Korea War. This is a "era specific" mod, ONLY designed for Post-1947 usage. It is the complete aircraft, including a 'new(ish)' cockpit. All items, excepting for the standard bombs (in the KAW Weapons Pack) are included.
       
      Skins included here are for:
      28th BS, 19th BG*
      33rd BS, 22nd BG*
      343rd BS, 98th BG
      372nd BS, 307th BG *
      "USAF2", (a generic NM skin with no squadron/group markings)
       
      (*=indicates Night undersides. others are NM overall)
       
      All markings, excepting squadron/group color bands, are decals. Serial numbers, while correct for this model, are to be considered generic in nature. Decal randomization is TRUE. All skins use the same "pool" of serial numbers. There are NO nose arts.
      A number of new (actually revamped for SF2) weapons are included:
       
      VB-3
      VB-4 RAzon guided bombs
      VB-13 Tarzon guided bomb
      T-10 Tallboy
      A Large Selection of early fission bombs
       
      Please note, that the effects for the nukes (included), do NOT work in some mods folders, for no known reason. They work fine in others. Also, be advised, even with the smallest yields, your chances of surviving are very small. Use of these weapons is not really reccomended. They are included for historical pruposes only.
       
      As always, fairly easy to follow, yet detailed install instructions are included. So, please read them. Also, give the "Notes" section a read too. There are "Operational Notations" and other important data you should know.

    8. SF2 WW2 PTO B-26 Marauder Pak

      SF2 WW2 PTO B-26 Marauder Pak
       
      -- Something for the WW2 PTO players --
      = For SF2 ONLY, Full-5 Merged (Reccomended/Preferred) =
       
      **Note: Having SF2I Expansion Pak 1 is HIGHLY reccomended, as a few of the destroyed models referenced reach over to the stock destroyed C-47A. If you do =NOT= have Exp1, you will NOT have the burning wreck on the ground. You will have to locate some other destroyed model for use. Also, due to modifications to various inis, this mod will probably -NOT- work in 06 level 1stGen game installs. 08 Level 1stGens may have some issues, but this has not/cannot be tested by me.**
       
      This is a reissue of Veltro2K's B-26 Marauder Medium Bomber. It has been reskinned/redecaled and had some tweeking done. This mod ONLY represents Marauders used in the PTO, specificly, in the SoWesPac region (read: New Guinea). It's "representative" of B-26A's used - see Notes below for more information.
       
      This unit represented herein is...
       
      2nd BS, 22nd BG, circa March 1942 through 1943 (before star-and-bar), in OD/Grey (as operated from Australia and New Guinea)
       
      The skin are in jpg format, and have been remade from a new Home Grown ™ 'partial template'. All new, 100% historically accurate serial numbers were created for this squadron. There ARE nose arts for ths aircraf, but they are 'speculative' at best as I could find almost NO references what what they looked like (see Notes for more info). Decal randomization is set to TRUE. Like the ETO version, new DDS format damage textures are included.
       
      It should be noted, do =NOT= use this mod in a ETO or MTO-centric mods folder; these Pacific Marauders are different!!!!
       
      Engine sounds, pilot figures, a Brand NEW Theatre-specific Hangar screen (in SF2 jpg format) are included. Bombs and guns (and the Mk.13 torpedo!) are not; you should have them already. Operational service dates are rounded to 'whole months'.
       
      As always, fairly easy to follow, yet detailed install instructions are included. PLEASE read them!!! PLEASE read the "Notes" section for the change list, and other important notations. Also, the Legal Statement has been changed with regards to this aircraft.
      For those that still have the original releases (and tweeked them for PTO usage), it's advised you delete the aircraft and decals folders for them; this pak is desinged to replace them in total.
       
      **This aircraft herein are released in "AS IS" Condition. The source files have been lost, and there can and WILL be no modifications to the physical model. It 'is as they is' and you must accept it with this caveat in mind. Any and all issues/problems that cannot be solved via ini edits will exist forever, as new models are unlikely to be created**

      SF2 WW2 ETO B-26B/G Marauder Pak
       
      -- Something for the WW2 ETO players --
      = For SF2 ONLY, Full-5 Merged (Reccomended/Preferred) =
       
      **Note: Having SF2I Expansion Pak 1 is HIGHLY reccomended, as the destroyed model referenced reach over to the stock destroyed C-47A.

Also, due to modifications to various inis, this mod will probably -NOT- work in 06 level 1stGen game installs. 08 Level 1stGens may have some issues, but this has not/cannot be tested by me.**
       
      This is a reissue of Veltro2K's B-26 Marauder Medium Bomber. It has been reskinned/redecaled and had some tweeking done. This mod ONLY represents Marauders used in the ETO. As they are (almost) identical aircraft, your in-game displayed name will read "B-26B/G Marauder"
       
      This units represented herein are...
       
      449th BS, 322nd BG, circa 1942 upon initial arrival in the ETO (star/circle) in OD/Grey
      449th BS, 322nd BG, cir3a 1943 til wars end, with 'star-and-bar' insignia, also in OD/Grey
      494th BS, 344th BG, circa 1944 til wars end, in "Natual Metal" (withOUT OD uppers)
       
      All skins are in jpg format, and have been remade from a new Home Grown ™ 'partial template'. All new Squadron Codes, plane-in-group and serial number decals were created. The 449th serials ARE historically accurate (90-95%), matched when possible to call letter. The 494th serials are 'generic' in nature, but are actual B-26G serials. All markings are decals, making in easier for skinners to recrate other ETO (or even MTO) units. There are only 2 nose art decals, both on the 449th skins, one for the 1942 and one for the 1943. None of these skins carry D-Day Invasion Stripes.
       
      It should be noted, do =NOT= use this mod in a PTO-centric mods folder; the Pacific Marauders are different, and will covered in another, theatre-specific upload.
       
      Engine sounds, pilot figures, BRAND new Hangar and Loading screens (in SF2 jpg format) are include. Bombs and guns are not; you should have them already. A user list is included. Operational service dates are rounded to 'whole months'.
       
      As always, fairly easy to follow, yet detailed install instructions are included. PLEASE read them!!! PLEASE read the "Notes" section for the change list, and other important notations. Also, the Legal Statement has been changed with regards to this aircraft.

    10. SF2 WW2 ETO P-47D-40 (Late)

      SF2 WW2 ETO P-47D-40 (Late) Pak 7/23/2017
       
      -- Something for the WW2 ETO players --
       
      = For SF2 ONLY, Full-5 Merged (Reccomended/Preferred) =
       
      The package represents late model P-47D (bubble top) Thunderbolts as used by the 9th Air Force in the European Theatre of Operations. It represents the -40 version with the additional fin fillet (which can and was also retrofitted to earlier marks). This aircraft is also equipped with "compressibility flaps", that first appeared on the D-30 block
      This is a brand NEW version, and can be used to replace any earlier mods of this block, or as a replacement for those "no longer available" for download by everyone.
       
      This is a complete aircraft package, and contains all the items necessary. The Standard Animation Keystroke, Shift/0 (zero) is used to open and close the canopy. The "compressibility flaps" operate with the standard 'airbrakes' key (as that's kind of what they are, sort of).
       
      2 skins are included, both for 9th AF squadrons:
       
      22nd FS, 36th FG (post 6/44, Invasion stripes on bottom only) 3T squadron code
       
      394th FS, 367nd FG (post 1/45) 4N squadron code
       
      The SF2 "date switch" is used on the 394th skin, and will automatically be selected from January 1945. Users that do not wish this feature, can easily disable it in the Textureset.ini.
       
      Both aircraft are in Natural Metal finish, excepting for any squadron color designators, which are painted on. All markings are decals; a pool of serials and 'plane-in-squadron' letters are used on both skins, with decals for the squadron ID numbers/letters. The serial numbers, while correct for this model (D-40) should be considered 'generic' in nature, not representing specific aircraft or units. There are no nose arts. Decal randomization is TRUE.
       
      When in-game, you'll see

    11. SF2 WW2 MTO B-25C/D Mitchell Bomber Pak

      SF2 WW2 MTO B-25C/D Mitchell Bomber Pak 8/2/2017
       
      -- Something for the WW2 PTO players --
       
      = For SF2 ONLY, Full-5 Merged (Reccomended/Preferred) =
       
      *Please note, this aircraft was supposed to be released several years ago (in August, 2014!!), and somehow managed to slip out of sight. I hope this corrects that mistake.*
       
      **Note: This mod will -NOT- work in 1stGen game installs at any patch level. Also, for those End Users ™ attempting to use this aircraft in an SF2 converted version of the DAT's WoA Pak, be advised of probable conflicts.**
       
      This is a "Theatre Specific" release of Veltro2K's =NEW= B-25C/D Mitchell Medium Bomber. This represents the "glass nosed" bomber version as used in the MTO. This is the FULL aircraft, with just about all the necessary parts supplied.
       

      There are 4 skin/decals set(s) in the package:
       
      "Early" - with star/circle
      "Late" - star-and-bar, post September, 1943.
      For the following units:
       
      81st BS, 12th BG
       
      83rd BS, 12th BG
       
      This mods uses the Brain32 trick, with the skinmap in the main aircraft folder. The aircraft is finished in Sand (desert pink) over neutral gray. This represents the 12th BG from it's arrival in theatre to late 1943.
      All markings are decals, and Decal Randomization is TRUE. The aircraft carries the "plain star-in-blue-circle" used until Sept 1943. The SF2 "date switch" will turn on in September, 1943 for the 'star and bar' insignia.
       
      Engine sounds, pilot figures, and skin-specific Hangar Screens are included. Weapons, guns, bombs, etc, are NOT; you should have them already. Operational service dates are rounded to 'whole months', and ARE relatively correct for ALL in-theatre usage (7/42-12/43 although it is likely several served longer, even when the H & J models reached MTO squadron service).
       
      When in game, you'll see
       
      B-25C/D Mitchell (v2k)
       
      on the Aircraft Selection Drop down menu. This will differentiate it from any other B-25s you may (or may not) have.
       
      As always, fairly easy to follow, yet detailed install instructions are included. PLEASE read them!!!
       
      Happy Landings!!

    12. SF2 WW2 PTO Republic P-47D "Razorback" Thunderbolt by Cocas

      SF2 WW2 PTO Republic P-47D "Razorback" Thunderbolt by Cocas 12/24/2014
       
      = For SF2 (Full4/5 Merged RECCOMENDED!)
       
      *This mod will =NOT= work in SF/Wo* 1stGen game installs. It was built for SF2 ONLY!!.*
       
      This is a BRAND NEW aircraft, brought to you by Cocas Aircraft Factory & Co.
      We are calling this "version 0.9", as there exists the possibility of more work being required. But, we wanted to get them out into the hands of our WW2 End Users ™ for their examinations and so forth.
       
      **REMINDER: this pack is for PTO Razorback Jugs -only-!!! And by PTO, this means SoWesPac, NOT CBI, not the Solomons, etc!!! This would include New Guinea, points north and west, and obviously the Philipines. Other theatres will follow as they are completed.**
       
      This pak contains 2 complete aircraft, representing the Razorback P-47D-2/D-10 in early/mid 1943, and the later D-15 thru D-20 Razorback Thunderbolt as seen in late 1943 (November-ish) through (nearly the) war's end, in the SoWesPac regions of the PTO (read: 5th AF).
       
      Skin(s) included are:
       
      P-47D-5 (early model):
      340th FS, 348th FG (SWP, mid-1943 scheme w/star-and-ball)
       
      P-47D-20 (later model):
      340th FS, 348th FG (SWP, late 43/early 44 w/star-and-bar)
      310th FS, 58th FG, (SWP/New Guinea region, late 43/early 44)
       
      All markings are decals, and Decal randomization is TRUE.
      The aircraft is finished in standard 0D/Grey, with Southwest Pacfic markings.
      Please note, SWP Theatre, Squadron and/or Group specific markings -ARE- painted on.
      The serials herein should be considered "generic" in nature, but ARE for the correct model variant. For the most part, there are NO nose arts, with the exception of a few for the 340th, "borrowed" from Major Lee's 348th FG skin set.
       
      All the 1stGen Hangar and/or Loading screens were either rebuilt to SF2-spec, or created new for this package. They are in jpg format, and fit SF2 styling. Damage textures are also new, in DDS format.
      The canopy opens/closes with the Standard Animation Keystroke ™, Shift/0
      Pilots, sounds, weapons are all included.
      Templates for this aircraft will be issued as a seperate release, for those skinners that wish to do other units/theatres.
       
      As there are several P-74D Razorbacks available, when in game you'll see:
       
      P-47D-5 Thunderbolt (CAF)(Mid 43)
      P-47D-20 Thunderbolt (CAF)
       
      on the aircraft selection dropdown menu. This will diferentiate it from any others that are around (Wolf or DAT).
      For those with the SWP/PTO Razorback mods I've done for Wolf's P-47, this mod is designed to compliment, NOT replace it. However... it's your choice to keep them or not.
       
      As always, fairly easy to follow, yet detailed install instructions are included. PLEASE read them!!! Also, as usual, PLEASE!! give the "Notes" section a read, too.
       
      Happy Landings!

      Sikorsky R-4B/HNS-1/Hoverfly Mk.1
       

      This is a third party addon of Sikorsky R-4B/HNS-1 helicopter.
      The original flight model is standard as on many free to download helicopters modified by me. I am not using airbrakes or flaps but flying fast and slow is stil possible, even hovering with little practice.
      It is designed for and works only in SF2 series. And will never work in SF1.

      Templates for pit or skins are available on pm request.
       
      Simple cockpit included.
      Flying.
      As with all my previous helos flying is quite easy. With little practice you can even hoover. Without fake flaps and airbrakes.
      Important here to control is using rudder and vector thrust control.
      Normaly throtle vector control on 88-89 degree increase power 55% wait little and then increase to 100% and helo will take off nicely. 341 version got little less power in engine.
       
       
       
      Skins.
      Each aircraft got one set of skins representing USArmy Air Corps, Royal navy And US Coast Guard.
       
      All serial numbers are historicaly correct.. As far as I know.
       
      Decals for USCG and Royal Navy by Coupi.
      Pilot is from Korea Mod but I don't know who is creator of this model. All credit to him.
       

      Have fun.
      Hope you will enjoy it same as me when working on it.
      Edit and report bugs.

      Thanks for all kind support.

    14. Post War P-63C Kingcobra (*)

      In 1945, 114 P-63C were delivered to the French Air Force (Armée de l'Air), but they arrived too late to see service in World War II.
      They however saw service during the First Indochina War before being replaced in 1951.
      Initially the French Kingcobras were deployed to Algeria.
      Fighter squadron (Groupe de Chasse) 2/6 "Travail", previously equipped with P-39 Airacobras, received their Kingcobras on 18 July at Casablanca;
      the pilots were surprised by the higher landing speed of their new aircraft.
      The Kingcobra were scrambled to Indochina when the insurgency broke.
      Only 60 Kingcobras were operational in Indochina in January 1950, mainly because the Americans refused to supply spare parts.
      Starting in February 1951, the squadrons equipped with Kingcobra started to receive Grumman F8F Bearcats as replacements.
      Most Kingcobras were mothballed by July. The last flight of a Kingcobra in Indochina took place on September 6, 1951.
       
      WHAT'S IN:
       
      - a post war P-63C model remodded and repacked
      - 14 new French Skins and decals added
      - 2 new VVS skins
      - weapons tweaked and fixed
      - steering front gear
      - USAF due very little usage disabled from userlist.
       
      CREDITS:
       
      - A-TEAM/CAPUN model (*) no lod inside this package
      - paulopanz skins factory etc.
       
      INSTALL:
       
      - All in your mod folder
      - add P-63C-R1 taken from A-TEAM site to your new P-63C folder
       
      NOTE:
       
      I'm going to upload a serie of A-TEAM/CAPUN great WWII planes post war remodded.
      I'ld wish again that CA and A-TEAM great sites and people could find a way to be a whole great community, because togheter we will be all richer and stronger.
      So don't post anything against anyone here, please.
      Let's make mods and not mod-wars!
       
      Anyone could build up an Indochina mod? I have some other good pieces to add ...
       
      That's all
       
      Enjoy.

    15. SF2 WW2 F8F-1 Bearcat (PTO)

      SF2 WW2 F8F-1 Bearcat 7/22/2016
       
      "A Somewhat What If aircraft for WW2 PTO '46"
       
      ***Note: Due to massive changes in the skins, decals, and inis, if you have created a WW2 Version of the Bearcat, you ARE advised to move, remove, rename or otherwise hide it from the Game Engine. THIS mod will cause conflicts, due to aforementioned changes, with many of the original parts.***
       
      This full aircraft package includes mods to Geo's F8F Bearcat, (re)creating the original 600-odd F8F-1 versions as deployed from August, 1945, just as the War ended. I've made the assumption, for PTO '46 users, that the A-Bombs, for whatever reason, were not used and the aircraft entered full squadron service for Operations Olympic and Coronet.
      See the 'Changes' section in the "Notes" below.
       
      The package includes 2 skin & decal sets:
       
      VF-19 (USS Langley, CVL-27) as seen in 8/45, enroute to the War Zone, as the war ended)
      VF-3 (USS Coral Sea, if the CVB class carriers had entered the war in the later parts of 1945)
       
      With the exception of the nation marking, which remain painted on, all other markings are decals. Decal randomization is TRUE. Many are by Geo from the original release. Other (modex) are by me. The ship code letters ARE correct for the late 45 thru late 46 time frame. The skins have been partly repained to remove the incorrect "G" system marking used on the orignal VF-19 skin. Skins remain in bmp format. As they carry no markings, this will allow other skinners the freedom to create other carrier air group codes, although new modex numbers will probably be required as well.
      The hangar screen is an SF2 version of my 1st Gen "Box Art" one.
       
      All weapons (drop tanks), sounds and a pilot figure are included. Other weapons used (rocket, bombs, etc) use those you should already have in the WW2 Weapons Pack.
       
      The canopy opens with the standard keystroke, Shift/0 (zero). Wingfold is =NOT= active, as it never was when originally released in 2006. The aircraft is NOT exported, having only the single user, the US Navy.
      The aircraft has been given a Service Start Date of of July, 1945. The data ini contains a new (if somewhat experimental FM, but MUCH closer to stated performances). It may require further fine tuning by experts; to that end I've included the USN BuAer's "Standard Performance" chart PDF within the main aircraft folder. This is for those remaining FM gurus to use, if they wish, to further refine the FM.
       
      As always, unzip this to a temp folder somwhere, and you'll have access to the rest of the readme for it's instructions. PLEASE read it before installing, ok?
      As always, read the "Notes" section for notes and other ramblings
       
      Happy Landings!

    16. SF2 WW2 BT2D "Skyraider" (AD-1)

      SF2 WW2 BT2D "Skyraider" (AD-1) 7/21/2016
       
      "A Somewhat What If aircraft for WW2 PTO '46"
       
      **Note: consider this 'version 3.0', replacing the SF/Wo* version based on MontyCZ Skyraider I'd done many years ago. THIS version replaces that one completely. Delete it if you still have it.**
       
      *Note you =MUST= have SF2:V as part of your merged install, as the mod references the stock A-1H lod for the aircraft.*
       
      The is a semi-what if aircraft, as the BT2D did exist (and was renamed the AD-1 in 1947). This mod assumes that the aircraft WAS deployed to the Western Pacific in WW2, in the event that the development and/or usage of the A-Bombs was curtailed for some reason.
       
      The aircraft comes with three skin/decal sets (although only one actual skin residing in the main folder; the "Brain32 trick".)
       
      VB-14 (USS WASP)
      VT-88 (USS YORKTOWN)
      VB-19 (USS CORAL SEA)
       
      The skin remains in bmp format. All markings are decals and decal randomization is TRUE. All Aircraft carry the new style (post-July 1945) "letter code" ship identification tags. These ARE correct for the time from 7/45 - 12/46(ish). VT88 & VB19 also make use the "hundreds" series modex numbers, which also started usage 7/45. VB14 remains with is double digit modex numbers. Several other ship ID code decal are provided, for those wishing to replace other SB2C & TBM units with the BT2D. Other units can be easily made if one knows their code letters (I do!) Other units may require new, different sequenced modex number decals.
       
      All weapons, sounds and a pilot figure are included. The canopy opens with the standard keystroke, Shift/0 (zero). Wingfold is active, by using it's standard keystroke, Shift/9, but it's not reccomended to fold the wings when loaded, as due to some sort of game limitation, the weapons will NOT move with the wing (no matter how much I've tried to fix that).
      The aircraft has been given a "start date' of of June, 1945.
      The aircraft is equipped with radar, (AN/APS-4) in an external pod, and is speced to carry and deploy just about all USN weapons of the period, including "Bat" glide bombs, and torpedos.
       
      As always, unzip this to a temp folder somwhere, and you'll have access to the rest of the readme for it's instructions.
       
      Happy Landings!

    17. SF2 WW2 MTO Tomahawk IIB (RAF) Pack

      SF2 WW2 MTO Tomahawk IIB (RAF) Pack 5/01/2015
       
      -- Something for the WW2 MTO players --
       
      = For SF2 ONLY, Full-5 Merged (Reccomended/Preferred) =
       
      *Note: this mod is most likely =NOT= usable in 1stGen installs at any patch level. This may be due to the use of a 'late model' cockpit.*
      **Notex2: this mod is designed for use ONLY in a MTO-Centric mods folder**
       
      This package contains a SF2 version of Raven's P-40B/C Tomahawk, as used by the RAF and Commonwealth squadrons in the Western Desert and Palestine. While considered a 'beta', the aircraft is 100% all there. As I understood it, the beta tag is ONLY because the cockpit was never finished. In that light, I've substituted one of Stary's Generic Cockpits ™.
       
      The skins included are:
       
      No 112 Squadron
      No 250 "Sudan" Squadron
      No 4 Squadron (SAAF)
      No 3 Squadron (RAAF)*
       
      As seen in Palestine, Egypt and the Western Desert.
      All but No 3 RAAF are finished in standard "day desert'. *No 3 RAAF is painted in standard "temperate day", as seen in Europe. I was unable to determine when (or even IF) 3 Squadron RAAF repainted their aircraft to the desert scheme, but thought it would be a nice change. One can always swap out the skins for the desert versions.
      No 3 RAAF was one of the earliest in the MTO to use them in Palestine against Vichy forces, but the SF2 date switch is NOT used on it, or any of the others. Other squadrons can be created by simply making a new squadron letters decal.
      Skins maps remain in their bmp format.
      All markings are decals, and Decal Randomization is TRUE. All aircraft use a 'pool' of plane-in-squadron letters and serial numbers. Excepting 112 Squadron, where all serials ARE 100% historically correct. The others, while correct for this mark, are to be considered generic in nature.
      The Hangar screen is a revamped Sf2 version of my original "AvArt". All sounds, drop tank and pilot figure are included. Guns & RAF bombs are not, as they're available in the various WW2 Weapons and Guns Packs. Service dates are rounded to "whole months". The canopy operates with the Standard Animation Keystroke, Shift/0.
       
      When in-game, you'll see
       
      Tomahawk IIB (Raven)
       
      This will diferentiate it from Wolf's Tomahawk mod. In fact, =THIS= mod is designed to replace, completely, any and all earlier versions.
       
      As always, fairly easy to follow, yet detailed install instructions are included. PLEASE read them!!
       
      Good Hunting!!

    18. SF2 WW2 AVG "Flying Tigers" Tomahawk Pack V.2

      SF2 WW2 AVG "Flying Tigers" Tomahawk Pack V.2 5/2/2015
       
      -- Something for the CBI players --
       
      = For SF2, Full-4/5 Merged (Reccomended/Preferred) =
       
      *There is a possibility that this mod will =NOT= work in SF/Wo* 1stGen game installs, due to the excessive modifications made to fit them into the SF2 environment. This mod is designed to REPLACE, in its entirety, the one based on Wolf's Tomahawk. See Install instructions for more information.*
       
      **Notex2: These aircraft should ONLY be used in a seperate CBI-centric mods folder to prevent them from showing up where, historically, they shouldn't. The Aircraft & GroundObject sets for CBI are substantially different from Central or SouthWest Pacific areas.**
       
      This is a re-compilation of Baltika's beautiful P-40B/C Tomahawk "Flying Tigers" Pack for use in CBI-based WW2 installs. It has been converted for use on Raven's P-40B/C. Consider this as 'Version 2'.
       
      It contains 99.9% Historically Accurate ™ serial numbers, Individual aircraft numbers and squadron markings.
      This mod creates a seperate, nationalized version, called "Tomahawk_AVG". Be sure your WW2 Nations ini contains the 'country', AVG!
       
      This pak contains skins/decals for:
       
      1st Pursuit "Adam & Eves"
      2nd Pursuit "Panda Bears"
      3rd Pursuit "Hell's Angles"
       
      All markings, excepting squadron color bands, are decals. Decal Randomization is TRUE. All items, sounds, pilot figure, excepting guns, are included. Provisions have been allowed for use of a drop tank, but all research indicates the AVG never used (or had!) them. Also, no bombs are carried. Any ground attacking will be 'guns only'. The canopy operates with the Standard Animation Keystroke, Shift/0.
      As Raven't Tomahawk is considered a beta, due to the cockpit being unfinished, this mod uses one of Stary's 'Generic Pits'.
       
      Operational service dates for the aircraft have been limited to the actual spread; 12/21/41 - 7/4/42. To that end, Userlist.ini was created to help 'lock them in'. (it is known however, that some of the AVG Tomahawks DID operate with the newly formed 23rd FG, when taken under USAAF control).
       
      When in game you'll see
       
      Tomahawk AVG (Raven)
       
      on the aircraft selection drop down. This will diferentitate it from the original, based on Wolf's Tomahawk.
       
      As always, fairly easy to follow, highly detailed install instructions are included. So, please read them =BEFORE= installing, but (duh!) after unzipping. Also, give the "Notes" section a read too. Baltika's original readme for the Flying Tigers Mod is included for historical purposes.

      = For SF2 ONLY, Full-5 Merged (Reccomended/Preferred) =
       
      *Note: this mod is most likely =NOT= usable in 1stGen installs at any patch level. This may be due to the use of a 'late model' cockpit.*
       
      **Notex2: this mod is designed for use ONLY in a PTO-Centric mods folder**
       
      This package contains a SF2 version of Raven's P-40B/C Tomahawk, in use by the USAAC just before, and during, the opening months of The Pacific War. While considered a 'beta', the aircraft is 100% all there. As I understood it, the beta tag is ONLY because the cockpit was never finished. In that light, I've substituted one of Stary's Generic Cockpits ™.
       
      The skins included are:
       
      47th PS, 15th PG, Bellows Field, Hawaii, December 1941 "Pearl Harbor Defender"
      20th PS, 24th PG, Phillipines, December 1941
      DOD41 - representative of aircraft from August to November 1941
       
      Skins maps remain in their bmp format. The SF2 'date switch' is NOT used on any of these skins.
      All markings are decals, and Decal Randomization is TRUE. The Hangar screen is a revamped Sf2 version of my original "AvArt". All sounds, drop tank and pilot figure are included. Guns are not, as they're stock items. Service dates are rounded to "whole months". The canopy operates with the Standard Animation Keystroke, Shift/0. Be advised, this aircraft has a short service life, as the E models were already in service when the US entered the war.
       
      When in-game, you'll see
       
      P-40B/C Tomahawk (Raven)
       
      On the aircraft selection drop-down. This will diferentiate it from Wolf's P-40B/C mod. In fact, =THIS= mod is designed to replace, completely, any and all earlier versions.
       
      As always, fairly easy to follow, yet detailed install instructions are included. PLEASE read them!!
       
      Good Hunting!!

    20. SF2 AVG Flying Tigers Tomahawk Pak - for WW2 CBI

      SF2 AVG "Flying Tigers" Tomahawk Pak by Baltika
       
      -- Something for the CBI players --
      = For SF2, Full-4/5 Merged (Reccomended/Preferred) =
       
      *There is a possibility that this mod will =NOT= work in SF/Wo* 1stGen game installs, due to the excessive modifications made to fit them into the SF2 environment.*
       
      **Notex2: These aircraft should ONLY be used in a seperate CBI-centric mods folder to prevent them from showing up where, historically, they shouldn't. The Aircraft/GroundObject sets for CBI are substantially different from Central or SouthWest Pacific areas. You'll need the Burma and China WW2 terrains from the 1stGen Terrains Downloads. Be advised, that even though I reworked both terrains some years ago, they need yet another going over to correct many faults; but they ARE perfecly playable as is, with the needed SF2 terrain conversion tweeks that is :)**
       
      This is a re-compilation of Baltika's beautiful P-40B/C Tomahawk "Flying Tigers" Pak for use in CBI-base WW2 installs. This uses Wolf257's Tomahawk as the base aircraft
      It contains 99.9% Historically Accurate ™ serial numbers, Individual aircraft numbers and squadron markings.
      This pak contains:
       
      1st Pursuit "Adam & Eves"
      2nd Pursuit "Panda Bears"
      3rd Pursuit "Hell's Angles"
       
      Like the recently rereleased Tomahawks, it has a new (semi)compliant SF2 FM, and in this case, a new cockpit (albeit NOT correct for P-40s* see Notes below for more explinations). It uses one of Stary's 'Generic Pits', that you can see things in. So, accept this 'poetic licsence'. The original Wolf pit is, however, still included.
       
      It is also HIGHLY advised to add this generic cockpit to the other 2 Tomahawk mods, for SF2 usage.
      Operational service dates for the aircraft have been limited to the actual spread; 12/21/41 - 7/4/42. To that end, Userlist.ini was created to help 'lock them in'. There is no historicl evidence that these Tomahawks, unlike their RAF brethern, ever used any external stores, but research is still ongoing (meaning: I gave them to you anyway, as the D&S book hinted they had them!).
       
      As always, fairly easy to follow, highly detailed install instructions are included. So, please read them. Also, give the "Notes" section a read too. Baltika's original readme for the Flying Tigers Mod is included for historical purposes
       
      Happy Hunting!

    21. SF2 WW2 PTO B-29 Superfortress Pak (Ver 2)

      SF2 WW2 PTO B-29 Superfortress Pak (Ver.2) 4/27/2015
       
      -- Something for the PTO players --
       
      = For SF2, Full-5 Merged (Reccomended/Preferred) =
       
      This is a revamp of the version released in April, 2013. There have been several major and minor changes. See the Change List in the Notes section for what got fiddled with.
       
      This is the complete aircraft, with all the skins, decals, sounds and whathaveyous needed.
      The 2 skins included are:
       
      498th BG 73rd BW (all 60 aircraft)
      509th Composite Group (the Atomic Bombers)
       
      Serials & nose arts for the 509th are 100% historically accurate. The 498th nose arts in some cases are interperative, some are historical. Serials/tail markings =ARE= 100% historical.
      Decal randomization is TRUE for both skins. The skins, due to their small size, remain in bmp format.
       
      As always, fairly easy to follow, yet detailed install instructions are included. So, please READ them. For those users that have the 2013 version, you will be deleting the /B-29 folder from you PTO mods folder's /Aircraft main folder. Again, READ THE INSTRUCTIONS -- in fact, unzp the package FIRST, read them through, and then follow the instructions. If allowed to overwrite, bad things may happen.
      Also, give the "Notes" section a read too. Be advised, the "Leagel Notice" also includes a small change. Which seems to be ignored by some people.
       
      Good Hunting!

    22. SF2 WW2 PTO Douglas P-70 Nighthawk (DAT) Tweeks Pak

      SF2 WW2 PTO Douglas P-70 Nighthawk (DAT) Tweeks Pak 4/24/2015
       
      = For SF2 (Any, but Full 4/5 Merged RECCOMENDED/REQUIRED!) ONLY =
       
      **This mod will -NOT- work in 1stGen game installs.**
       
      This pak contains mods for the Dev A-Teams USAAF P-70 Nighthawk night fighter, as seen in the SoWesPac in 1943 thru 1944.
      This is an INCOMPLETE aircraft mod, as the main aircraft lod is =NOT= included, as per DAT directives. If you cannot access their downloads, don't bother downloading THIS mod, as it will be of no use to you. All other parts are included.
      See "Change Log" in the Notes section for more details and full credits.
       
      This package contains 2 aircraft, each with 2 skins. While tagged for the 6th NFS, 18th FG, they should be considered 'generic' for all the squadrons (4, iirc, with never more than 6-8 aircraft each) operating in SoWesPac. All aircraft are finished in overall Black (or Night, if you will):
       
      The 2 aircraft are:
       
      P-70 (no suffix, with 20mm belly gun pack and 2 cheek 50 cals for sighting the 20s)
      P-70A-1/-2 (with 6-gun A-20G type nose)
       
      The Skins are:
       
      Early, star-and-ball
      Late, star-and-bar (after 10/43)
       
      All markings (insignia, serials, etc) are decals. All skins are in jpg format. There are NO nose arts or other distinctive markings.
      All new, 100% historical serial number decals were created. Both skins for each aircraft use the same pool of 18 serials. Decal randomization is TRUE.
      The serials, while historically correct for the 2 versions depicted, should be considered generic in nature, as it's impossible to run down individual aircraft to a particular squadron.
      The Late skins for both uses the SF2 "date switch", and will automatically turn on in October, 1943 (although, the early A model may have been withdrawn from service eariler, or converted at local modification centers to the 6-gun "G" type nose).
      All skins are tagged as "6th NFS", even though at least 3 other units were operational in SoWesPac. Consider this a 'representative' unit.
      Operational dates have been adjusted to closest whole month. The P-70 has an end date of 1/1944, and the A-1/-2 has a start date 7/1943 through 5/1944 when P-61s were deployed in theatre.
      The radar "arrowhead" transmitter and "H" fuselage and "V" wing antennas have been added via the fake pilot method.
      The cockpit hatch opens with the Standard Animation Keystroke, Shift/0. My 'box art' style Hangar screen is included, now is SF2 format.
       
      When in game you'll see on the Aircraft Selection Dropdown
       
      P-70
      P-70A-1/-2
       
      This is to diferentiate the cannon equipped version from the 6-gun nosed version.
       
      As always, fairly easy to follow, yet detailed install instructions are included. PLEASE read them!!!
      It is HIGHLY suggested you unzip this archive FIRST, and =READ= the install instructions BEFORE installing this mod. So you know EXACTLY what to do. Of course, read the Notes section for notes, enlightments, and so forth.
       
      Good Luck!

      This is a BRAND NEW aircraft, brought to you by Cocas Aircraft Factory & Co.
      We are calling this "version 0.5 beta", as there are a few minor issues with the LOD, and these will repaired as Real Life ™ allows. But, we wanted to get them out into the hands of our WW2 End Users ™ for their examinations and so forth. See Notes below for a more detailed explaination.
       
      REMINDER: this pack contains PTO Bubbletop Jugs =ONLY= !!! Other theatres/users will follow as time permits, and as they are completed.

      Damage textures are also new, in DDS format.
      I'm trying out a 'new style' of hangar screen, so I hope you like it.
      The canopy opens/closes with the Standard Animation Keystroke ™, Shift/0
      Pilots, sounds, weapons are all included.
       
      As there are several P-74D Bubbletops available, when in game you'll see:
       
      P-47D-25 Thunderbolt (CAF)
       
      on the aircraft selection dropdown menu. This will diferentiate it from any others that you may (or may not) have.
       
      As always, fairly easy to follow, yet detailed install instructions are included. PLEASE read them!!! Also, as usual, give the "Notes" section a read, too.

      This pak contains, as stated above, a NEW aircraft, representing the Bubbletop P-47D (-25
      thru -30-ish) Thunderbolt as seen in late 1943 through war's end.
      Skins included are:
       
      8th AF
      56th Fighter Group :
       
      61st FS (early 44, OD/G)
      62nd FS (mid/late 44-45), camo)
      63rd FS (sometime in 44, NM)
       
      and
       
      9th AF:
      379th FS, 362nd FG (full D-Day markings, NM)
       
      All markings are decals. Decal randomization is set to TRUE.
      Please note, Squadron or Group specific markings -ARE- painted on, as are the Invasion
      Stripes. There are some nose arts.
       
      All the 1stGen Hangar and/or Loading screens were either rebuilt to SF2-spec, or created
      new for this package. They are in jpg format, and fit SF2 formatting. Damage textures are
      also new, in DDS format. There are 2 different Loading Screens, and you can swap them as
      you see fit.
      The canopy opens/closes with the Standard Animation Keystroke ™, Shift/0
      Pilots, sounds, weapons are all included.
      Templates for this aircraft ARE included, for those skinners that wish to do other units,
      or other theatres, or Allied users (and see my appeal in the "Notes" section <grin>). The
      template is in the main zip of the package, so don't forget to move it OUT of your mods
      folder or things might get confusing!
       
      As there are several P-74D Bubbletops available, when in game you'll see:
       
      P-47D-20 Thunderbolt (CAF)
       
      on the aircraft selection dropdown menu. This will diferentiate it from any others that
      you may (or may not) have.
      As some units are repeated, those with the mods I built for Wolf's Jugs, can choose to
      keep those, or remove them to storage.
       
      As always, fairly easy to follow, yet detailed install instructions are included. PLEASE
      read them!!! Also, as usual, give the "Notes" section a read, too.
       
      Happy Landings!

    25. SF2 Post-War TB-25J Mitchell Pak

      SF2 Post-War TB-25J Mitchell Pak 4/5/2015
       
      -- Something just for fun! --
       
      = For SF2 ONLY, Full-5 Merged (Reccomended/Preferred) =
       
      **Note: This mod references the stock destroyed Il-28. Also, due to modifications to various inis, this mod will -NOT- work in 1stGen game installs at any patch level. This has not/cannot/will not be tested by me.**
       
      This little mod represents TB-25J (glass nosed) Mitchells in serivce with the USAF in the post-WW2 time frame. Many of these aircraft were retained and converted to personal transports, navigational & multi-engine trainers, or squadron 'hacks' up until the late 1950s. The aircraft is completely unarmed. However, "those that know how" can readily turn the aircraft to it's original status and function. (see Notes for details).
       
      The aircraft is finished in Natural Metal (withOUT the late 50s white fues top or black "anti-soot" nacelles), and carries standard post-1947 USAF marking, including Buzz Numbers. The skin is in jpg format and all markings are decals. Decal Randomization is TRUE. Engine sounds, pilot figures, and a "couple of other things" are included.
       
      When in game, you'll see
       
      TB-25J Mitchell (v2k)
       
      on the Aircraft Selection Drop down menu. This will differentiate it from any other B-25s you may (or may not) have. (even though there ARE no other TB-25s!!)
       
      As always, fairly easy to follow, yet detailed install instructions are included. PLEASE read them!!!
      Remember, an aircraft like this one, saved the world from The Giant Claw!!!
       
      Happy Landings!!
