  1. D-Day Spitfires

    Hello!
    Here's a set of skins for Thirdwire's Spitfires LF Mk. IX's for D-Day campaigns. National markings and D-Day ID bands are painted-on.
    You'll need Strike Fighters 2 Expansion Pack 1 for the Spitfires.
    Just drop in the aircraft folders and fly!
    Thanks to Thirdwire for the 3D models.

  2. EAF Supermarine Spitfire F Mk 22 White DLC 29

    Twenty reconditioned F.22's were sold to Egypt in 1950 and 10 to Syria.
     
    This white skin is a remake of previous Wrench's one. Decals are old ones.
     
    I made this only because I liked so much the original I can't wait to use the new model in DLC 29.
     
    All the credits to Kevin.

  4. Seafire MkIII, Irish Air Corps

    Seafire MkIII (Modified), No.1 Sqn, Irish Air Corps, 1947 - 1955
     
    The Irish Air Corps bought 12 Seafires in 1947; these were denavalised by removing the 'hook' and at least in most cases, locking the wing-fold joints. They were numbered from 146 to 157. There is still considerable debate among the Irish aviation historians as to the precise colour used; they were clearly painted overall with a greenish-grey shade, possibly MAP Light Slate Grey. No detailled information is available. I have simply used one of the stock TW skins, slightly modified, although it is not single colour as it should be.
     
     
    For use ONLY with SF2 including the Israel Expansion Pack. This will NOT work if you do not have the stock TW Spitfires installed and working.

  5. SF2 WW2 & Post-War Spitfire XIV Skin/Ini Pak

    SF2 WW2 & Post-War Spitfire XIV Skin/Ini Pak 3/31/2014
     
    -- Something for the WW2 ETO (and post war) players --
     
    = For SF2 ONLY, Full-5 Merged (Reccomended/Preferred) =
     
    *** DLC #29 REQUIRED for this Mod!!!! ***
     
    A reskinning of the stock 3W DLC 29 Spit XIV (14), adds a WW2 skin, and 2 early
    post-war RAF skins.
    They are:
     
    No 130 "Punjab" Squadron (as seen in the ETO in late 44-thru wars end)
    No 60 Squadron (Malaya, 1946)
    No 28 Squadron (as seen at Tengah, 1948)
     
    The Squadron Crest for each is used as the 'paint chip' seen on the loading
    screen.
    Included are modified data and loadout, userlist & main inis. For you viewing
    pleasure, a brand NEW SF2-style Hangar screen. The assumption (oh! that word!!)
    is being made that you've already made the aircraft player flyable, so no
    cockpit bits are included. However, my "One Click Restore Main Ini" (patent
    pending) is.
    No weapons (bombs and guns) are included, as all stock items are being used,
    but a drip tank is.
    The canopy has been activated via the Standard Animation Keystroke ™,
    Shift/0.
    All markings are decals (excepting SEAC bands), and decal randomization is TRUE
    (but is acting quite "oddly" for some reason).
     
    *Please Note: if you have PauloPanz's EXCELLENT Spit 14 skin pak, you may want
    to backup and compare his data ini to mine. You may also want to create a NEW
    One Click Restore ini ™, after it automaticly adds his skins -- See notes
    for changes.*
     
    As always, fairly easy to follow, yet detailed install instructions are
    included. So, please read them. Also, give the "Notes" section a read too.
    Happy Landings!!

    -- Something for the WW2 ETO players --
     
    = For SF2 ONLY, Full-5 Merged (Reccomended/Preferred) =
     
    A new skin for the TMF/ModMafia Spitfire Mk.1A, representing 602 "City of Glasgow" Squadron around the time of the Battle of Britian (ish).
     
    REMINDER: this is for the TMF/MM Spit 1 ONLY!!!
     
    Like the original release of the TMF/MM Spit 1, it uses a pool of plane-in-group letters and serial numbers, so you MUST have to original release of the TMF/MM Spitfire Mk.1a to apply this pack to. The only thing different is the squadron code decal, LO.
     
    If you don't have this Spitfire, it's available at the following url:
     
    http://combatace.com/files/file/13510-sf2-ww2-spitfire-mk1a-by-mod-mafiatmf/
     
    The skin is in jpg format, Decal Randomization is TRUE. The Squadron Crest is used for the paint chip, as seen on the loading screen

    = For SF2 ONLY, Full-5 Merged + Expansion Pak 2 (Reccomended/Preferred) =
    **SF2:E Expansion Pak 2 =REQUIRED= to have the Spitfire 9c**
     
    A reskinning of the stock 3W Spit 9c to 341 Squadron, FFAF (aka: GC III/4 Alsace) during WW2 in Western Europe.
     
    Skins remain in their 'lorez' 512 size, and are still in bmp format. Decal randomization is set to TRUE. All marking on the aircraft are decals. This will make it exceptionally easy for skinners to create other RAF squadrons of this time period.
    For those with historical tendencies, this is the squadron that Pierre Clostermann served with.

  12. SF2 WW2 ETO, "D-Day" Spitfire IX Blank Skin set

    SF2 WW2 ETO, "D-Day" Spitfire IX Blank Skin set 1/12/2015
     
    -- Something for the WW2 ETO players --
     
    = For SF2, Full-5 Merged (w/whichever Expansion Pak gave us the Spitfire IXc) =
     
    Using my Home Grown Templates ™ for the stock 3rd Wire Spirfire 9c, this skin set adds the D-Day Invasion stripes set.
    This is a "blank" skin, with no marking other than the Invasion Stripes, and can be used with any of the available decal sets for the stock Mk.IXc AND Mk.IXe. A simple rename of the textures will allow it's usage on either one. See "Notes" for more details.
     
    The stripes represented here are the 'full' set, top/bottom of wings and fully wrapping around the fuselage, as used from June 6, 1944 to approx September 44 (ish). The Sky ID band has been omitted, although photographic evidence exists of it having been used, even with the Invasion stripes. Yellow wing IFF bands remain.
     
    REMINDER-- this is not a 'full' ready-to-use skin pak. The folder is just named "DDAY" for convience. You'll have to create specifically named skin folders (ie: 411-DDay, for example) for proper, historical usage.
     
    There is no decals or texture set inis included -- however, a "base" texture set showing the in-game labeling is included, but NOT usable per se. It's just there to show how to set the Displayed Name labeling.
    As the mapping for both the 9c and 9e is identical, as are their respective decal positions, any of the existing Spifire 9 decal sets can be reused with this skin.
     
    As always, fairly easy to follow, yet detailed install instructions are included. So, please =READ= them !!!.
     
    Happy Hunting!

  13. SF2 WW2 FAA, 807 NAS, BEIF, Seafire Mk.IIIC Skinpak

    SF2 WW2 FAA Seafire Mk.IIIC, 807 NAS, BEIF 10/5/2014
     
    -- Something for the WW2 Fleet Air Arm players --
     
    = For SF2, Full-5 Merged (Reccomended/Preferred) =
     
    *Note: this is designed for use in a PTO mods folder built from the SF2NA exe, as it has the proper carrier coding. Also, be advised a correct and proper CBI map with the carrier coding is still in the works.*
     
    The package contains a =NEW= skin for Cocas' Seafire Mk.IIIC as issued to Royal Navy Fleet Air Arm squadrons in British East Indies Fleet. If you don't have the aircraft, you can get it at the following URL:
     
    http://combatace.com/files/file/15028-sf2-ww2-faa-seafire-mkiiic-pak-by-cocas-aircraft-factory-co/
     
    Skin included in this package is:
     
    Royal Navy:
    No. 807 NAS, BEIF, embarked on HMS HUNTER in 1945
     
    The aircraft carries 'standard' SEAC markings for the period. Code and "plane in group" letters (18) are correct for East Indies Fleet use, but I have not found any references if they carried the "D5" code with HUNTER in the Med. Most likely, they did. In that case, a different skin for MTO usage would be needed, and the national markings decals would need replacing. I have included the PSD I used to make the fuselage codes for any other skinners to use for that purpose, or for other FAA aircraft.
    All markings are decals and Decal Randomization is TRUE.
     
    As always, fairly easy to follow, yet detailed install instructions are included. So, please read them.
     
    Good Hunting!

  14. SF2 WW2 MTO Spitfire Mk.IX, Polish Fighting Team Skinpak

    -- Something for the Med players --
     
    = For SF2, Full-5 Merged (Reccomended/Preferred) =
     
    *This mod will NOT work in SF/Wo* 1stGen game installs, at any patch level. One should also have the SF2I expansion pak, that gave us the Spitfires, as this mod REQUIRES the 3W Spitfire Mk.IX,
     
    This package contains a new skin for MTO (specificly Tunisian) based RAF Spitfire Mk.IXs. It represents
     
    "C" Flight, No. 145 Squadron, aka "Polish Fighting Team"
     
    All marking are decals, and decal randomization is TRUE for the 16 plane-in-squadron and serial number decals. Serial numbers marked with a star (*) are 100% historically matched to their plane-in-squadron number. Those marked with a cross (+, ok the plus sign!), while having served with the PFT, could not be matched to a specific aircraft. Those without any markings, are 'generic'. It should be noted, that the PFT used numbers, instead of letter for their individual IDs.
    Please note, this is just the skin/decal set. I've not included any of the bits needed to make the aircraft Player Flyable ™. There's plenty of other mods that do this.
     
    When in game, on the Loadout Screen, you'll see
     
    Polish Fighting Team (145 Sqdn)
     
    in the upper right skin selection drop down.
     
    As always, fairly easy to follow, yet detailed install instructions are included. So, please read them.

  15. Spitfire F.MkIXc, early production, MEF

    Spitfire F.MkIXc, early production, Middle East Forces, late 1942 onwards.
     
    These will add an RAF-specific MkIXc version of the Spitfire included in the SF2 Israel Expansion Pack. Includes serial numbers for early production F.MkIXc ("MkIXA") aircraft, squadron and individual codes and correct RAF markings for the period.
     
    A large number of early MkIX aircraft were conversions from MkV airframes; if you look up the serials of these aircraft, they will fall in blocks attributed to MkVs. All the aircraft represented in this pack were either converted to MkIX standard, or in the earliest MkIX production blocks.
     
    This will run only in SF2I or a merged install including SF2I and the SF2I Expansion Pack.

  17. Spitfire LF.MkVIIIc, SEAC

    Spitfire LF.MkVIIIc, No.607 Sqn RAF, 1944-45
     
    No.607 (County of Durham) Sqn began flying on the Spitfire MkVIII in March 1944.
     
    The serial numbers included all correspond to LF.MkVIIIc aircraft built in late 1943 to early 1944 and shipped out to India.
     
    Credits:

    Cockpit by Kesselbrut

    The canopy is activated by toggling "shift 0" - RAF procedures dictated that the canopy should be open and locked back during take-off and landing.
    As the MkVIII had a retractable tail-wheel, I have removed the MkIX-type fixed tail-wheel.
     
    For use ONLY with SF2 including the Israel Expansion Pack. This will NOT work if you do not have the stock TW Spitfires installed and working.

Includes serial numbers for LF.XVIe aircraft, squadron and individual codes and correct RAF markings for the later part of WW2. The only difference between MkIX and MkXVI aircraft was that the MkXVI substituted a Packard-built Merlin for the original Rolls Royce. HF, F and LF variants were parallel.
     
    This will run only in SF2I or a merged install including SF2I and the SF2I Expansion Pack.

  19. Spitfire Mk22, Southern Rhodesian Air Force

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

  23. Spitfire MkIa, No. 19 Sqn RAF, September 1940

    Spitfire MkIa, No.19 Sqn RAF, Fowlmere, September 1940
     
    No.19 Squadron was the first RAF unit to be equipped with the Spitfire, which entered service in August 1938. The squadron was based at the time at Duxford in Cambridgeshire, now famous for its Warbirds. By September 1940, the squadron had been reissued with 8-gun MkIa aircraft after a month-long rather unsuccessful operational trial of the 20mm cannon-armed MkIb.
     
    Squadron Leader Brian 'Sandy' Lane led 19 Squadron during the later part of the Battle, flying P9386 'K', recognisable by its yellow ex-OTU spinner. Other noteworthy members include Flt Sgt George 'Grumpy' Unwin, one of the original members of the squadron at the time the Spitfire entered service (X4179 'H'); Sgt Bernard Jennings flying X4474 'I' and Flight Lt Walter 'Farmer' Lawson with X4170.
     
    Serial numbers in this pack correspond to aircraft used by 19 Squadron during September 1940, although many of these aircraft were on strength only for some days, for obvious reasons. Where possible, I have tried to ensure that the individual letter and serial number correspond to reality.
     
    For use ONLY with SF2 including the Israel Expansion Pack. This will NOT work if you do not have the stock TW Spitfires installed and working.
     
    Includes 2048 and 1024 size skin sheets.

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

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

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

    Spitfire MkIIa, No.308 (City of Krakow) Sqn, Royal Air Force, Baginton, May 1941
     
    No.308 Squadron was the among first of the Polish fighter squadrons to be equipped with the Spitfire while based at Baginton in March 1941. This made the Poles the first Free Air Force to use the aircraft - a fitting tribute given the way they had performed during the later part of the Battle of Britain; No.303 (Kosciuszko) Sqn for example claimed more German aircraft shot down than any other Hurricane squadron - despite joining the Battle only at the end of August. The Poles, for whom the RAF was their third home after their own Air Force in 1939 and the French Air Force in 1940, had a reputation for extremely aggressive flying which the RAF did not altogether understand - but their results were eloquent, and they were given the Spitfires they craved.
     
    The markings carried in the late spring of 1941 included the Sky 'Fighter Command' band and spinner introduced in December 1940 and returned to the all-Sky undersides again after a brief period from December to April when the port wings of fighter aircraft were once again painted black. At this time, the spinner and band were in fact generally painted not Sky but Sky Blue for some reason; the correct Sky colour appeared more generally in the second half of 1941.
     
    Serial numbers in this pack correspond to aircraft used by 308 Squadron during May 1941, although many of these aircraft were on strength only for some days, for obvious reasons.
     
    For use ONLY with SF2 including the Israel Expansion Pack. This will NOT work if you do not have the stock TW Spitfires installed and working.
     
    Includes 2048 and 1024 size skin sheets.
