  1. Kuwaiti Skyhawks - A-4KU/TA-4KU for SF2

    Kuwait Scooters - A-4KU/TA-4KU for SF2 - v1.0
    ==================================================
    *** any SF2I that has the KfirC1_77 for the cockpit and DLC005 required for the A-4K model ***
    This mods represents the A-4KU and TA-4KU Skyhawks used by Kuwait between 1977 and 1992.
    In the 1970s Kuwait purchased 36 Skyhawks (30 single-seater + 6 two-seater). These planes were based upon A-4M, that were delivered to the USMC at that time. So they got the same engine, the larger canopy, the brakechute and the squared off fintip. Equipment needed to deliver nuclear weapons, aswell as Shrike- and Walleye were deleted. The TA-4KU were unique in having the same engine as the single-seater, aswell as the avionics hump. Apart from some aerials their appearance is similar to that of the OA-4M.
    When Iraq invaded Kuwait in 1990, many of the pilots flew with their planes to Saudi Arabia. They were included in the Royal Saudi Air Force and flew 1361 sorties with the loss of only 1 plane.
    With the end of the Gulf War they were placed in storage and replaced by F/A-18 Hornets. After failed attempts to sell the surviving 23 planes to Bosnia and the Phillipines, they were finally sold to Brazil in 1997 to serve aboard the Aircraft Carrier Minas Gerais as AF-1 and AF-1A.
    Infos
    =====
    - cockpit used is the modified KfirC1_77 cockpit, that is already used for my A-4M-mod. I only made small modifications to fit it the A-4KU.
    - Pilotmodel is a stand-in, until someone comes up with a Kuwaiti Pilot :)
    - Fakepilot-stuff like hump and the antennas are made with MUEs new Blender-exporter - as I already said and always will: Thank you, great job, mue!
    - Skin resolution is 4096x4096
    - Skins are set up for "No9SQN" as I only found the general info, that planes were used by "No. 9 and No. 25 squadrons" and both squadrons didn't
        use any special markings it seems.

  2. SF2 TA-4F Vietnam FastFACs - Revamp

    SF2 TA-4F Skyhawk "Vietnam FastFACs" - Revamp
    =============================================
    *** SF2V required for the A-4F Cockpit, that is used here. Tested in full 5-merged installation ***
    This is a revamp of Wrenchs Update of 331Killerbees TA-4F FastFAC-Pack. ;)
    Skins have been redone in greater resolution with more details. Decals are new (although original Decals are still there). Some bits of the plane are removed by ini-edit and exchanged by FakePilot-Addons to add more details and get rid of the shadow-issue caused by the outer wing pylons.
    5 new Droptanks are added (2x 150gal, 2x300gal, 1x400gal).
    BuNos are always correct for the squadron and many are also correct for the plane, although sources and pictures are very rare.
    H&MS-11 comes in 3 variations (CAG, Large Stripe + Bunny on Tail and Small Stripe without Bunny) that were used side by side as it seems
    H&MS-12 has CAG-Bird
    H&MS-13 has 2 Skins - The one from the original pack was used after Vietnam, but I redid it and included it. The one used in Vietnam has no special markings and a different Tailcode-style. I only found 1 pic as reference, so maybe other variation are possible too.

    Installation
    ============
    1. unzip to a temporary folder
    2. open "Put_Content_In_Your_MOD folder" and do as you were told, if asked to overwrite, say 'yes' :P

  4. SF2 TA-4F Skyhawk "Fast FACs"

    SF2 TA-4F Skyhawk "Fast FACS" by 331Killerbee & Co.
    This is the full package (all necessary parts included), originally created by 331Killerbee in 2008. It has been fully updated to SF2 standards, with various small changes to the aircraft and the data ini.
    As with my other SF2 "fixes" for the TA-4 series, some components have been 'removed' to stop the shadow tractor beams. The FM is at the latest SF2 standard (latest patch level) Other changes include (but not limited too):
    resetting all hit boxes
    randomization of decals
    "fake insignia" decal to activate Nation displayed name.
    All weapons used are stock 3W.
    Killerbee's original readme (well, actually this document!) is included for historical purposes, and it's historical background on the Fast FACs.
    Have fun!!

  5. Malaysian Skyhawks - A-4PTM/TA-4PTM

    Malaysian Scooters - A-4PTM/TA-4PTM for SF2 - v1.0
    ==================================================
    *** any SF2 that has the A-4F for the cockpit and DLC019 required for the A-4L model ***
    The Tentera Udara Diraja Malaysia (TUDM, or Royal Malaysian Air Force) ordered 88 surplus Skyhawks (25 A-4Cs and 63 A-4Ls) in 1980. The TUDM wanted these planes refurbished into 54 single-seaters and 14 two-seaters. However, the US government placed a temporary hold on the sale, and escalating costs due to inflation resulted in a cut in the order to only 40 aircraft.
    Grumman Aerospace at St. Augustine, Florida was given the contract to perform the rework on the TUDM Skyhawks. The rework included a complete rewiring, plus two extra underwing hardpoints similar to A-4E and later Skyhawks. A refurbished J65-W-20 engine was fitted. Updated electronics were also fitted, including the AN/ARN-118 TACAN, a SAAB RGS-2A lead computing weapons sight, a Lear Siegler altitude heading reference system, and an AN/ARC-164 UHF transceiver. The A-4Cs were fitted with the dorsal avionics hump. aswell as wing spoilers. A drag chute was installed below the tailpipe. A new canopy was fitted, which was slightly bulged at the sides. Some of the aircraft received preparations for the Hughes AN/ASB-19 Angles Rate Bombing System, aswell as provisions for AGM-65 Maverick missiles, but both were actually never used with these planes. Provisions for the use of AIM-9 Sidewinders were incorporated on the outer wing pylons. In the end, Grumman modified 34 aircraft. They were assigned the designation A-4PTM (where PTM stood for Peculiar to Malaysia, other sources say Persekutan Tanah Melayu - Federation of Malay States). The A-4PTM flew for the first time on April 12, 1984 and modified planes were assigned the TUDM serials of M32-07 to M32-40.
    Six A-4C/A-4L airframes were converted into two-place Skyhawks. This was done by inserting a 28-inch plug into the fuselage. Canopy and tandem seating arrangements were generally similar to those of the Douglas-built TA-4s. These planes were designated TA-4PTM. The TA-4PTM also featured five underwing pylons. The first TA-4PTM took off on its maiden flight on August 28, 1984. The six TA-4PTMs were given the TUDM serials of M32-01 to M32-06. Since they were based on the earlier A-4C/L, the 6 planes were among the few two-seaters, that used the J65 engine (together with early TA-4S from Singapore).
    Deliveries began in 1985 and were completed by February 1986. A-4PTMs served with No 6 and 9 Squadrons, both based at Kuantan AB, while TA-4PTMs served only with No 6 Squadron. Their service with the TUDM was quite brief. In 1989, it was announced that they were going to be withdrawn from service and replaced by British Aerospace Hawk Mk.208s in late 1994. Six Skyhawks were retained as tanker aircraft, using a centerline Douglas D-704 external buddy tank.
    By September 1999, the TUDM Skyhawks were no longer operational, and were derelict at the Royal Malaysian Air Force Base at Kuantan.
    Little information are available about those planes, so I tried to come as close as possible to the real ones. Cockpit is a heavily modded A-4F-cockpit modded around the fact, that the radarscreen was deleted and many intruments were rearranged to fill the space. According to Lt. Khoo those planes didn't have any countermeasures (no ECM, no Chaff/Flare-Dispensers) and probably no RWR. To add some survivability I deceided to leave RWR in the mod. ECM and Dispenser is commented out in the data.ini, so if you want to add those, just remove the //-bits.
    If you now ask, why the hell do we need a mod of this plane, if it barely can survive in the timeframe it was used? We do not, but I made it, because I could :P I like this plane, because it always was one of the lesser known variants of this well-known plane and for me it is one of the best-looking Skyhawks out there. So, I hope you have some fun with the Jungle Scooter. :)

  8. SF2 Scooters! Vol.2 - Aggressors for TW A-4 and Fractures TA-4 Skyhawks

    Scooters! Vol.2 - Aggressors for TW A-4 and Fractures TA-4 Skyhawks
    ========================================================
     
    *** DLC A-4G Skyhawk required. Tested in full 5-merged installation ***
    *** SF2 or SF2V for the A-4E cockpit and A-4F model ***
     
    This pack contains 14 Aggressor-Skins for the Scooter as used during it's career as plane for DACT - Dissimilar Air Combat Training. These planes were used to simulate enemy aircraft vs. regular Squadrons.
    Although a certain camouflage was applied often to 1 plane only, I decided to do 8 planes per skin for playability reasons. To difference the real planes and the "filler" I added the BuNos for the real planes in the loadout menu. The ones without BuNo are fictional.
     
    This pack contains skins depicting the following planes/squadrons:
     
    A-4E/F Mongoose without Hump
    - A-4E/F of VF-43 Challengers, 1992 in a light gray/gray wraparound camo.
    - A-4E/F of VF-126 Bandits, 1992 in white/gray/blue with light blue bottom
    - A-4E/F of VF-126 Bandits, 1991 in tan with brown stripes and gray bottom.
    - A-4E/F of VF-126 Bandits, 1991 in tan/brown/green with gray bottom.
    - A-4E/F of VFC-12 Fighting Omars, 1993 in an overall glossy engine gray camo.
     
    A-4E/F Skyhawk with Hump
    - A-4E of VF-45 Blackbirds, 1987 in brown with green tiger stripes ("Brown Tiger")
    - A-4E of VF-101 Grim Reapers, 1972 in 2 shades of bluegray with light blue bottom.
     
    TA-4J Skyhawk
    - TA-4F/J of VFC-12 Fighting Omars, 1989 in an overall glossy engine gray camo.
    - TA-4F/J of VA-127 Cylons, 1986 in a tan/green wraparound camo.
    - TA-4F/J of VA-127 Cylons, 1983 in a light gray/dark gray/blue wraparound camo.
    - TA-4F/J of VC-8 Redtails, 2000 in tan/brown.
    - TA-4F/J of VC-8 Redtails, 2000 in blue/light blue ("Baby Blue").
    - TA-4F/J of VF-45 Blackbirds, 1993 in bluegray/gray wraparound camo.
    - TA-4F of H&MS-31 Aggressors, 1989 in 3 different gray wraparound camo.
     
    Included is a variation of the ACMI-Pod. For that I combined ravenclaws ACMI-Pod model with the data.ini of 331Killerbees CAP-9 to make it a missiletype-store than uses a build-in rail.
     
    New Hangar- and Loadingscreens are also included with a resolution of 1920x1080 as default and 1024x768 as optional.
     
    I changed the cockpit by removing the radar screen. Additional changes are the switched positions of the Accelerometer and AoA-Indicator and Levers for Arresting Hook and Landing Gear are operational now.
     
    As in dtmdragons original mod, I retained the cannons for playability, although they are not visible in game.
     
    I hope you have fun with it!

  10. OA-4M UpdatePack for SF2

    *** SF2+SF2I+V required for the KfirC1_77-Cockpit and optional A-4F_74-Cockpit, that is used here together with bits from the A-7E-Cockpit. Tested in full 5-merged installation ***
     
    This pack contains an update to the previously released OA-4M-Pack by Wrench. All skins and decals are newly done for this pack.
     
    Included are the following "new" planes and Skins:
     
    * OA-4M Skyhawk (2-Tone Gray Camo) - Initial Camo with large insignias and white modex.
    - H&MS-12, MCAS Iwakuni '81-'83
    - H&MS-13, MCAS Yuma, '79-'83
    - H&MS-32, MCAS Cherry Point, '79-'83
     
    * OA-4M Skyhawk (GhostGray Camo) - 2nd Camo-Scheme, differently arranged with small insignias and lowvis modex.
    - H&MS-11, MCAS El Toro, '88-'90
    - H&MS-12, MCAS Iwakuni 1986 (Yosemite Sam on Tail)
    - H&MS-12, MCAS Iwakuni 1989 (Yosemite Sam on Tail, Samurai on Aft Fuselage)
    - H&MS-13, MCAS Yuma, '83-'88
    - H&MS-32, MCAS Cherry Point, '83-'90
     
    * OA-4M Skyhawk (Overall Gray Camo) - There were probably just 2 planes with that camo 154306/DA01 and an unknown 2nd one. Gray overall with black markings.
    - MAG-32, MCAS Cherry Point, '89-'90
     
    * OA-4M Skyhawk (Blue/Green Camo) - Experimental Camo on 154306/DA01. Dark green / dark blue with white bottom and black markings.
    - H&MS-32, MCAS Cherry Point, 1983
     
    * OA-4M Skyhawk (Green/Gray Camo) - Experimental Camo on 154628/DA04. Green / gray with gray bottom and inverse markings.
    - H&MS-32, MCAS Cherry Point, 1985
     
    Planespecific skins for the droptanks are provided (stock A-4 tanks), aswell as a new skin for the stock Mk.20 Rockeye II CBU.
     
    Optional:
    As there's no dedicated OA-4M-Cockpit available, the Pack contains 2 options here:
     
    * KfirC1_77 cockpit by default, from dtmdragons A-4M-pack as stand-in. It "feels" better than the big and roomy A-7-Cockpit from the original OA-4M-pack. I also made refinements over
    dtmdragons version to bring it more towards a modern Skyhawk-Cockpit. Landing Gear-, Arrestor Hook Lever and Rudder pedals are working now, I rearranged and reskinned the weaponspanel,
    to get rid of the hebrew stencils and Kfirs additional weaponsstations and I removed some instruments, that are useless here (Nozzle- and Shockcone Position).
     
    * A-4F_74 cockpit, which is slightly modified by me. It now has a HUD and the Radarscreen is used for the ARBS. Although it was not actually installed in real planes, it is added for playability.
    Also the HUD is rather small, but works.
     
    Included are Hangar- and Loadingscreens in 1920x1080 by default and 1024x768 as option. Just open the planes ini-files and you see what you have to change.
     
    There's a readme included. Feel free to read it! :)

  12. A-4L Skyhawk by Crab_02 & Column5

    A-4L Skyhawk, VC-13 "Fighting Saints" Skin/Decal Pak
    = For SF2 (Full-4 Merged Prefered) and/or SF2:V =
     
    *Can be used in any install that has access to the A-4C_65, which is stock in all merged installs, excepting a stand-alone SF2:I. However, it does use the A-4E_67 Cockpit and Avionics ini, which is only availabe in SF2:V. Hence, the 'Full-4 Merged' tag is applicable*
     
    Complete overhaul of the A-4L Skyhawk as originally released in 2004 by Crab02 and Column5. For historical purposes, their original readme is included.
    This mod makes use of all stock, "in-game" items, excepting for the avionics hump.
     
    All inis have been updated to the latest patch level (August, 2011); the loadout ini has some minor changes for a couple of mission profiles. The data ini has had the landing light added, and (of course!) the canopy activated, via manual animation. Use shift/0 to open and close it.
    All 'standard' Skyhawk mission profiles are retained.
    The avionics hump has been converted to a 'pilot seat' using the fake pilot method (the FakePilot is also supplied, just in case). The mid fuselage upper light position has been adjusted to match that on the hump.
    A new SF2 style hangar screen jpg is also included
    Decal randomization has been set to "TRUE", so be at least at whichever patch level gave this to us.
     
    As always, fairly easy to follow, detailed install instructions are included. So, please read them ....
     
    Happy Landings!
    wrench
    kevin stein
     
    IMPORTANT NOTE:
    If you have the DLC A-4L from Third Wire, do NOT download this mod. It will cause major conflicts. They should not be mixed in any way!!!
    If you do NOT have the 3W DLC A-4L, this is safe for your use.

  13. A-4N Ahit Pack for SF2

    A-4N Ahit Pack for SF2 2.0
     
     
     
    Instillation: As usual simply drop into your mods folder and allow it to override when prompted.
    Strike Fighters 2 Israel plus either Strike Fighters 2 or Strike Fighters 2 Vietnam are required
     
     
     
    A-4N Ahit - Specific model Skyhawk for Israel based on the A-4M with deliveries starting in 1972. The A-4N has the more powerful J52-P-408A Engine, larger canopy, HUD and an advanced weapons delivery/ Nav system.
     
    A-4N Ahit (78) - RWR upgraded
     
    A-4N Ahit (84) - Additional external antenna on the avionics hump and nose of the aircraft are installed.
     
    A-4N Ahit Pave Penny/ LGB - In 1984 some A-4N have their radars replaced with the AN/AAS-35(V) Pave Penny Laser spot tracker and are given the ability to drop GBU-12 and Israeli Griffin laser guided bombs.
     
    A-4N Ahit Pave Penny/ LGB (84) - Additional external antenna on the avionics hump and nose of the aircraft are installed.
     
    A-4N Improved Ahit (Sibat) - Major upgrade of the A-4N in 2005 with a modernised glass cockpit, updated HUD symbology (from the F-16), addition of a Ring Laser Gyro Nav System, plus new Mission and Fire Control Unit.

    I have included modified Yom Kippur and Lebanon War campaigns edited to include the A-4N as it was very active in both wars. You will need to have installed my Third Wire A-4E/H/F Ahit upgrade/ Enhancement for SF2 1.0 for the modified campaigns to work correctly.
     
    http://combatace.com/files/file/14397-third-wire-a-4ehf-ahit-upgrade-enhancement-for-sf2/
     
     
    Gameplay notes:
    - Cockpits are stand-ins however all the HUD displays, radar displays, RWR displays are correct.
     
    - To give the A-4N Ahit Pave Penny/ LGB the ability to use Laser Guided Bombs in the CAS role I created a ghost LP weapon station that can be loaded with a 'Shaldag FAC Laser Designation Team' which is the real life IAF special forces team that designated targets for the A-4N. If you don’t like the way it works just delete it from the weapons folder and stick to dumb bombs for everything except strike missions.
     
     
    Credits:
    - TK for the SF2 series and original Ahits
     
    - Alejandro for external cockpit/ canopy mods and Escapac seat

  15. Third Wire A-4E/H/F Ahit upgrade/ Enhancement for SF2

    This is an upgrade and major enhancement for the stock Third Wire A-4E, H, & F Ahits (Skyhawks). The standard TW Ahits have a few issues with their historical accuracy. This mod corrects those issues and even adds a few more aircraft to the Ahit family.
     
     
    Instillation: As usual simply drop into your mods folder and allow it to override when prompted. (This is important as there are changes to some of the aircraft.ini files etc)
     
    Strike Fighters 2 Israel plus either Strike Fighters 2 or Strike Fighters 2 Vietnam are required.
     
     
     
    Changes include:
     
     
    - The A-4H Ahit was not delivered with a downgraded engine. It had the same J52-P8A engine as the F model Skyhawk. Israel latter upgraded the engines of the H and F Ahits to the P-408A as used in the A-4M and N Skyhawks.
     
    - The 30mm cannons fitted to the A-4H Ahit were fitted at a 2.5 degree downward angle due to the emphasis the IAF placed on strafing after the Six Day war. However in reality it was less than ideal as there was no change to the A-4 gun sight so aiming proved quite difficult until the introduction of the HUD in the Crystal upgrade.
     
    - A-4E Ahit was delivered with the avionics hump of the F model Skyhawk. The hump was installed in US Navy service in anticipation of receiving ECM equipment but these aircraft were delivered to Israel instead. Because it was empty the hump was initially removed in Israeli service.
     
    - The A-4E Ahit was also refitted with 30mm cannons. However due to the problems encountered with the angle of instillation in the H model Ahit they were installed at a 1.5 degree downward angle in the E models.
     
    - US Emergency Aid Skyhawks: During the Yom Kippur war A-4E as well as A-4F Skyhawks were sent to Israel as replacements for IAF A-4 losses during the war. These A-4E Skyhawks had the same standard of avionics as the F models.
     
    - Additional early textures added to the A-4H Ahits with the Star Of David on the rear fuselage and two digit aircraft numbers.
     
    - Additional texture added with the US 'Stars and Bars' and US Navy numbers which the A-4H wore during test flights in the USA.
     
    - Textures modified so there are no squadron colors on the rudder before 1976.
     
    - Textures modified so aircraft numbers are not on both the nose and vertical stabilizer at the same time before 1976. Before then the aircraft number was on either the nose or the vertical stabilizer- not both. Where it was largely depended on which squadron operated the aircraft.
     
    - The hump and corresponding avionics upgrade that appear on the A-4H Ahit (73) and A-4E Ahit (73) were known as the Crystal upgrade. This upgrade was designed to bring the Ahit fleet up to the standard of the A-4N Skyhawk/Ahit so this upgrade also included a basic heads up display with computerized weapons aiming. This upgrade would also be applied to the US Emergency Aid A-4E and F Ahits after end of the Yom Kippur war.
     
    - The triangular antenna behind the normal UHF/VHF antenna on the hump of the A-4H/E Ahits (73) as well as one of the nose antennas did not appear on the aircraft till the mid 80's
     
    - Loadouts: the stock Ahit loadouts are not unrealistic but they certainly aren't the most realistic. As such they have all been redone to include things such as the use of the Walleye in the anti-amour role by particular aircraft etc.
     
    - Opening canopy.
     
    - Landing light.
     
    - Cockpit armor changed to the same as the A-4F which the A-4H is meant to based on.
     
    - Yom Kippur and Lebanon War campaigns edited to include additional aircraft and weapons where appropriate.
     
     
     
    The Ahits will now appear in the game as follows:
     
     
    A-4E Ahit - Delivery of ex US Navy Skyhawks in 1971 fitted with an empty hump, no ECM and no chaff dispenser.
     
    A-4E Ahit (72) - The empty hump is removed in Israeli service, the aircraft are also re-fitted with 30mm cannons at a 1.5 degree downward angle.
     
    A-4E Ahit (73) US Emergency Aid - US Navy A-4E Skyhawks with avionics hump and standard USN avionics rushed to Israel during the Yom Kippur War to replace Ahit losses.
     
    A-4E Ahit (73) Crystal Upgrade - A-4E Ahits upgraded under project Crystal with ECM, RHAW, countermeasure dispensers, updated weapons delivery system, updated navigation system and a HUD. An extended tailpipe is also fitted.
     
    A-4F Ahit US Emergency Aid - US Navy A-4F Skyhawks with standard USN avionics rushed to Israel during the Yom Kippur War to replace Ahit losses.
     
    A-4F Ahit (74) Crystal Upgrade - US Emergency Aid A-4F Ahits are upgraded to the same standard as the project Crystal A-4H Ahits with a HUD, updated weapons delivery system, updated navigation system, 30mm cannons, extended tailpipe and P-408A engine.
     
    A-4H Ahit - Specific model Skyhawk for Israel based on the A-4F with deliveries starting in 1968. The A-4H had a downgraded weapons and avionics capability.

  16. A-4Ku Skyhawk for SF2

    A-4Ku Skyhawk (Kuwait AF) Update Pak
     
    = For SF2, Any & All (Full-4 Merged Reccomended) =
     
    *NOTE: usable in any and all SF2 versions that have access to the A-4F_78 lod and A-7D cockpits. Hence, the Full-4 Merged Reccomendation*
     
    Based "loosely" off dtmdragon's SF1 port.
     
    Completely new skins, from a Home Grown Template ™, and all new BuNum* decals (in fact, as usual, ALL markings are decals). The 2 skins supplied are, well, identical! Excepting the "Free_Kuwait" skin will automatically start in 1991, for ODS, and have the "FREE KUWAIT" fuselage banner decal.
     
    The cockpit used, while not correct, does have pretty much everthing working as the A-4M this is based on should; research has pointed to them having the APR-53 radar, so I added it back. Therefore, 100% accuracy is NOT claimed for this mod.
    Loadouts are pretty standard, dumb bombs and so forth. The aircraft is LGB capable, but no evidence has turned up the KuAF used Paveways. Canopy operates via the Standard Animation Key ™, Shift/0. All loadouts use stock in-game items.
     
    As always, fairly easy to follow, yet detailed install instructions are included. Please read them!
     
    Enjoy!

  17. OA-4M Skyhawk, for SF2

    OA-4M Skyhawk by triplethr3at/pappychksix/Fracture
     
    = For SF2, Full-4/5 Merged (Reccomended/Preferred) =
     
    ** The Full-4/5 Merged is a requirement, as the A-7D_78 cockpit is referenced for the Mod
    (SF2:E??).
    If you don't have these minimum requirements, you shouldn't download this, as you
    will not be able to use it.**
     
    This is an overhaul of triplethr3at's SF2 USMC OA-4M Skyhawk FAC/Attack aircraft. All the
    inis have been brought up to the latest (as of July, 2012) standard. Some modifications to
    the avionics are existant more for 'playability' (meaning: it's far more capable then the
    Real Life ™ aircraft).
     
    Loadouts use all common or garden variety stock 3W weapons. It is set to fly all mission
    profiles as any other standard Scooter (with the exception of carrier basing). Decal
    randomizations is implemented, and all skin maps are jpg.
    The avionics hump, while not fitting quite as nice as I would like, and the
    'probe/antenna/blister combo kit' are attached via the Fake Pilot Method ™*
    New damage textures (dds) and a new SF2-style hangar screen are included. Data ini
    modifications using the 'Remove Component Trick**' eliminate the shadow tractor beams from
    the outer pylons as seen on other mods using the TA-4J LOD.
     
    The Threat Library also makes use of dtmdragons' extensively expanded list (not included). A
    userlist is included, even though the aircraft has only one User (USMC). SF2NA style Carrier
    statements are listed in the Data ini, but commented out; as I was unable to determine if
    these ever were flown from The Boats.
     
    As always, fairly easy to follow, yet detailed install instructions are included. So,
    please read them. Also, give the "Notes" section a read too. More interesting and perhaps
    vital info there, as well.
    Triplethr3at's original readme is included for histerical purposes.
     
    Happy Hunting!

    ** May (ok, probably) Requires SF2:V -hence the Full-4 Merged requirement-, as the A-4E_67 cockpit and avionics are referenced for the Mod. If you don't have these
    minimum requirements, you shouldn't download this, as you may not be able to use it withOUT heavy editing **
     
    This is a overhaul of Fracture/pappychksix' IDF TA-4H Skyhawk trainer/attack aircraft. All the inis have been brought up to the latest (as of July, 2011) standard. Some modifications to the avionics are more for 'playability', as research showed these most likely did not have an RWR (but knowing the Israelies....). The
    standard NAV/Attack radar, yes. Loadouts use all common or garden variety stock weapons. It is set to fly all mission profiles as any other standard Scooter..
    New damage textures (dds) and a new SF2-style hangar screen are included.
     
    Please note, that like the TA-4J recently released, the very same shadow issues =WILL= be present, as it uses the TA-4J's lod. You'll just have to live with that (see Notes below)

  19. Douglas A4D-1 (A-4A) Skyhawk Pak for SF2

    Douglas A4D-1 (A-4A) Skyhawk
    - For SF2 (Any and All, but Full-4 Merged Prefered*) -
     
    *Note: this makes use of the A-4B lods, that are stock in most installs (SF2 & SF2:V).These and the cockpit may not be available in un-mergerd, stand alone SF2:E and most definately not in SF2:I. Hence, the 'Full-4 Merged Prefered' tag.*
     
    The decal sets are taken from the various 1stGen mods of the A-4A, and where necessary I've redone the skin bits, using SF2 A-4B skins to bring them to SF2 standards.
    This package included 4 skin and decal sets:
     
    VA-43 Challangers (Gitmo, 59)
    VA-72 Bluehawks (1956)
    VA-93 Blue Blazers (1956)
    VMA-224 Bengals (MCAS El Toro, 1957)
     
    The VA-72 is my original from (whenever); the others were done by some talented folk I've not be able to ID -- as I lost the original readmes (if any). So, the credit is theirs for those skins/decals. I just edited things to fit. Where needed, created new decals.
    Decal randomization is set to TRUE, so make sure you're at least at the July 2011 patch level (or whichever one it is...).
     
    Data ini edits remove the refueling probe. The inis included herein are the latest, as of the August 2011 patch. All loadouts are stock ala the A-4B. The canopy is activated via manual animation, use Shift/0 to open and close. The landing light has also been added.
     
    As always, fairly easy to follow, detailed install instructions are included. So, please read them .... Of course, the usual "Notes" section. These will give you a nice mid-1950s collection of USN Light Strike aircraft for use in various "hot spots" of the time period.
     
    Catch the 3 Wire!
    wrench
    kevin stein
     
    NOTE:
    with the release of the DLC A-4A, this mod became moot. However, the skins and decals can easily be adapted for use on that DLC.

  23. Top Gun A-4F 'Super Fox/ Mongoose' for Strike Fighters 2 (Mk.II)

    Top Gun A-4F 'Super Fox/ Mongoose' for Strike Fighters 2 (Mk.II)
     
    This an update and replacement of the A-4 Super Fox I have previously released: http://combatace.com...updated-270111/ HOWEVER, this mod uses the DLC A-4G as the base model as it is an F model Skyhawk but without the avionics hump which is what the Super Fox is.
     
    So this means if you don't have the DLC A-4G this will not work and you should stick to the previous version in the above link. If you do have the DLC A-4G delete the old Super Fox from your mods folder and use this one instead.
     
    This aircraft is the modified A-4 Super Fox/ Mongoose used as an Aggressor aircraft by the US Navy Fighter Weapons School (Top Gun) from 74 till 94. The Super Fox was the ultimate adversary Skyhawk as it was equipped with updated J52-P-408 engine giving 11,200 pounds of thrust. The Super Fox also had its avionics hump and associated equipment stripped reducing its weight and giving it an impressive, better than 1:1, thrust to weight ratio. Other modifications included the wing slats being bolted closed and removal of the cannons.I have retained the countermeasure dispensers as I couldn’t find any information indicating they were removed but with no ECM or RWR I would advise you to avoid being engaged at beyond visual range.Best way to enjoy this bird is to set up a guns only dogfight with the mission editor and go head to head with a few Tomcats.
     
    Additional Features:
     
    - 9 different Aggressor skins including US Navy and USMC versions.
     
    - Cannon barrels have been removed from the 3D model. However the cannons will still fire and I have modified the cannons to be more accurate and more reliable in an effort to more accurately simulate combat with an aggressor aircraft. By this I mean all you needed to do in real life was to get the 'enemy' aircraft in your gun sight and call "Guns kill" so jamming guns or inaccurate cannons weren't an issue so I've stoped it happening in the game.
     
    - Top Gun Pilot Skin
     
    INSTILLATION:
     
    1, Delete previous A-4F_Super_Fox from your mods folder.
     
    2, Drop the extracted files in to the appropriate folders.
     
    3, If you have an extracted and modified NATIONS.INI file than add the following to it if you haven't already: (If you haven't, a modified NATIONS.INI file is included)
     
    [NationXXX]

    Mod Has only been tested/used in a merged install of ALL SF2 titles with the DLC A-4G installed.
     
    Third Wire DLC A-4G available here: https://store.thirdw...e_dlc.htm
     
    Credit goes to column5 for their A-4E Super Echo which gave me the idea and various skins which I updated to work in SF2.
     
    Enjoy,

  24. A-4G Skyhawk (VF-805)

    A-4G Skyhawk
    (r1 - 1976 - VF-805)
     
     
    This mod should ultimately cover the whole VF-805 career of the Australian A-4G, however since it started for a very specific project of mine, it will be released as-is and updated whenever (if ever) the rest is done.
    For that reason, if you have an interest on the topic and are willing to correct or complete the set, do feel free to do so, it's a safer bet than waiting for the next release.
     
    It has been built with/for SF2, it requires Thirdwire's A-4E and A-4F to work, there should be no other prerequisite.
     
    r1 includes only the mid-70's skin, as my project focuses on the year 1976.
    The skin and decals are as correct as I'm willing/able to do based on Thirdwire's skin.
    All plane and serial numbers are correctly paired and historically correct (all planes crashed before 1976 are not present).
    The only inaccuracy is the fact that some of the planes present were affected to VC-724, however, in case of conflict and to cope with attrition they would have been transferred to VF-805, hence their presence in this mod.
     
    Gunrunner
     
     
     
    Grey areas :
     
    - On most pictures the A-4G in '76 had the area surrounding the gun muzzle painted black, on some, a square area on the fuselage was painted black and on other, nothing was painted black at all, no text gives any reason for that or precise reference, therefore it's been left as stock.
    - Likewise, most sources claim some A-4G were not fitted with guns, without providing the serial number of those planes or whether this was a temporary or permanent change; Moreover, I couldn't find photographic evidence of a gunless A-4G.
    - The current INI is a hybrid of A-4E and A-4F, uses an A-4F cockpit with A-4E avionics, I lack sources and will to do any better at the moment, it will have to do.
     
     
    Optionnally, you can add VF-805 "Checkerboards" to your SquadronList.ini, however it is only a nicety and the skin doesn't rely on it.
     
    [squadronxxx]
    Name=RAN_805
    DisplayName=805 Sq. "Checkerboards"
    Nation=AustralianNavy
     
     
    TO DO :
     
    - Replace the antennas by accurate ones.
    - Have missile rails for outer pylons use with Sidewinders.
    - Add the late 60's VF-805 skin (without checkerboard).
    - Add the early 70's VF-805 skin (with checkerboard on the rudder).
    - Add the late 70's VF-805 skin (grey camo with knight).

  25. New Zealand A-4K Skyhawk Pack for SF2 Re-dux MAJOR UPDATE 14/02/11

     
    MAJOR UPDATE: 14/02/11
     
    Thanks to alejandro all 3d models are now correct. Squared off tail fin, braking parachute, varies aerials and antenna unique to the New Zealand A-4K Skyhawks have now been added. Due to the way they have been created with the fake pilot method an overhaul was required. I have also re done the markings on all skins, things such as walkway lines, stencils, warning markings etc are now historically accurate. A few other minor faults have also been corrected.
     
    When you re install this mod you will need to delete all previous RNZAF A-4 aircraft folders (A-4_70, A-4_72, A-4G_RNZAF, A-4_Kahu and A-4_Kahu_II) and override all files when you install it.
     

     
    This is the ultimate Royal New Zealand Skyhawk pack updated from my old Royal New Zealand Air Force A-4K Skyhawk package for Strike Fighters 2.After doing some major research for a RNZAF Skyhawk model kit I decided to upgrade my previous RNZAF Skyhawk pack but realising how much needed to be changed I decided to throw it out and create an all new far more historically/ technichally accurate pack.
     
     
    Features:
     
    * 5 different versions with separate models (all stock Third Wire) that cover the major changes to the airframes over the 30 years it was in service.
    - A-4K_70 Original 10 single seater Skyhawks introduced in 1970 with avionics humps (empty) and straight refuelling probes.
    - A-4K_72 Around 1972 the fleet started being retrofitted with angled re-fuelling probes.
     
    - A-4K_85 In 1985 the fleet started being repainted in Euro 1 camouflage.
    - A-4K_Kahu In 1986 a modernisation project was started that saw the removal of the avionics hump, an AN/APG-66NZ radar installed along with a glass cockpit, HUD, ALR-66 RWR, ECM, countermeasures and modern weapons capability.
    - A-4G_RNZAF In 1984 New Zealand purchased 8 A-4G Skyhawks from Australia that were eventually converted to the A-4K Kahu standard.
     
     
    * Over 24 different skins that cover all models of Skyhawk in New Zealand service from 1970 to 2001. Most are for the entire fleet but some are for specific aircraft with an unusual feature/ scheme etc.
     
    * Use of the ‘StartDefaultDate=’ feature ensures a historically accurate skin is automatically selected depending on what year you choose to fly.
     
    * 3 different pilot models that cover the change in flight gear over the years.
     
    * Extensive RWR.TGA files and updated RWR.LST
     
    * Historically accurate serial numbers depending on the time period and aircraft type.
     
    * Files and instructions to integrate the RNZAF A-4K into two of the the NATO fighters campaigns.
     
    * Data.ini files reflect my research into the actual A-4K and it's features.
     
    * Opening cockpits 'shift' + '0'
    * Working landing lights.
     
    * Reflective white strips added to some skins of late model aircraft as seen on real aircraft.
     
     
    Instillation:
     
    Note: Only tested in an all SF2 games merged install however it will work in some of the others as long as they have the right Third Wire A-4 models.
     
     
    * Historical:
     
    -Simply put files from the ‘Main RNZAF A-4 pack’ folder into the appropriate locations in you mods folder. Override when prompted.
     
     
     
    * Extras:
     
    - To add the RNZAF Skyhawk to the 1979 and 1986 NATO fighters campaign put the files from the ‘NATO fighters campaign’ folder into the correct place in your mods folder and override when asked. You will need to back up your campaign files first. You will need NATO fighters IV installed up to the Post-Dec2009 Update Pack # 3. http://combatace.com...-update-pack-3/ You will also need Alternate 1986 Red Storm campaign for NATO Fighters 4+ Dec 2009 Patch and Beyond by Dave installed for the A-4K to work in the 1986 campaign. http://combatace.com...tch-and-beyond/ This is because that is what I had installed when I edited the files to add the A-4K and those are the files I’ve uploaded here.
     
    - Fictional and What if skins: This will add a series of grey, Red flag and desert storm skins. Put the files from the ‘Fictional and What if skins’ folder into the correct locations in your mods folder.
     
    - A-4K II: In the ‘Proposed A-4K II’ folder is an additional aircraft that represents Phase II of the Kahu upgrade project. In 2000 when the F-16 was selected as a replacement for the Skyhawks an alternative option was also put together by the RNZAF which was Phase II of the Kahu upgrade done in the 80’s. These additional upgraded would involve a self designation capability for the LGBs, a new anti-ship missile and a new ejection seat. To this end the Litening pod had been selected and would have been migrated to the F-16 program if it had continued. To install simple put the files from the files from the ‘Proposed A-4K II’ folder into the correct locations in you mods folder and override.
     
     
    Credit: Third Wire for the game, James Fox for his RNZAF skins & decals that I used as a base and wilco for his angled re-fueling probe mode for the A-4K_Kahu & landing lights mods and alejandro for the 3d mods to make it a true K model Skyhawk.
     
    Note: I've deleted the old RNZAF A-4K Skyhawk Pack for SF2 as this replaces it.
     
    Enjoy,
     
    Dan.
