  1. Turkish Air Force F-104S

    Turkey is one of the very first countries to receive the F-104Gs within the MAP program. As a preparation for the new aircraft the 144th Squadron was organised at the 4th AB in Mürted-Ankara. The first 15 aircraft arrived on May 10th,1963 by sea and they were deployed at the newly founded squadron in July. In July 1963 two TF-104gs arrived and they were also assigned to the same squadron. This was followed by Canadair produced 18 F-104Gs and 2 TF-104Gs. The shipment continued in 1965 with 5 more Canadair built F-104Gs. All of these planes were deployed at the 144th Squadron. In 1968 3 pcs F-104G and 1 pc TF-104G were received from USAF.
    The TuAF faced with the US embargo after the Cyprus peace-keeping Operation ordered a batch of 18 F-104S from Italy. 6 of the planes were delivered within the same year and the remainder in 1975 on the basis of the planes per month. In 1975 the purchase was risen to 40 planes all which were received within 1976.
    The CF-104s, F-104Gs, TF-104Gs and the RF-104Gs which were strated being replaced by more modern aircraft were despatched to Turkey. This operation included 17 pcs F-104Gs from Belgium, 43 pcs F-104Gs & 12 pcs TF-104Gs from Holland, 12 pcs RF-104G and one TF-104G from Norway and 165 pcs F-104Gs and 36 pcs TF-104Gs from Germany. Canada also promised to hand over the CF-104s after being replaced by the F-18A/Bs. In 1986 44 pcs CF-104G & 6 pcs CF-104D were received. These planes were allocated to the 181st and to the 182nd Squadrons.
     Within the elapsing time the TuAF F-104Gs started aging and they were withdrawn from active duty one by one. Some were even used as spare parts for those which were still in active duty. The last ones were the CF-104s of the 182nd Squadron when replaced by F-16C/Ds in 1996.

  2. SF2 F-104 Starfighter Super Mega Pack 2016

    SF2 F-104 Starfighter Super Mega Pack 2016 v3.5
    By Viper63a et al!
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    BOTH SF2E AND DLC28 ARE REQUIRED FOR THIS MOD!
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    NOTE1: If you already downloaded version 3.1, you just need to download and install the patch to upgrade from version 3.1 to 3.5 Please read the Read Me in the Patch file.
    NOTE2: This mod WILL replace stock F-104s and may conflict with any other F-104 mod you may have installed - SO BACK UP unless you crave drama! SF2 Europe (merged or not) and DLC28 is REQUIRED, REALLY. If you don't have these, this mod will not work for you.
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    After flying FastCargo's excellent "Classified Mission Mod (Version 1.1)" pack, I got re-introduced to the F-104 Starfighters. So take a look at FastCargo's mod in the link below. Some install work is required, but well worth it....
    http://combatace.com/files/file/11458-classified-mission-mod-version-11/
    Firstly - I take NO CREDIT for the work contained in this pack. I made some of them better (All new skins, decals...etc), but I was not the creator. I am just a reflection of the excellent work that can be found here in CA. So here is my humble contribution to the collective. Thank you all for your mod packs!
    What's in this pack? In a nutshell, I downloaded some F-104 mods to check out the 104s (turned into downloading almost ALL of them, two of the best being Wrench's DLC28 F-104 Pack and MigBusters "Thirdwire F-104A/C Pack 1 1.0 " pack. Then added a bunch of other packs that caught my eye. There were lots of conflicts, broken decal links, leaking LODs...etc etc...So I started merging - fixing - reskinning - re-decaling and generally upgrading all the packs into one merged and hopefully easier to install pack. This is my "Best of the breed" F-104 Super Pack and I thought you may like a copy. Again, SF2E and DLC28 are REQUIRED, but other than that, everything else is in this pack to start flying the F-104 Starfighters.
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    This pack includes F-104 skins, new pilots, hanger, loading, loadout, decals and everything else you need to start flying the F-104s...

  3. SF2 F-104C 1965 Vietnam Pack

    SF2 F-104C Vietnam Pack
    By Viper63a
     
    ------------------------------------------------------------------
    BOTH SF2E AND DLC28 ARE REQUIRED FOR THIS MOD!
    ------------------------------------------------------------------
     
    This pack WILL NOT replace stock F-104s, but it may conflict with any other F-104 mod you may have installed - SO BACK UP unless you crave drama! SF2 Europe needs to be merged with your Vietnam install and DLc28 is REQUIRED, REALLY. If you don't have these, this mod will not work for you.
     
    ------------------------------------------------------------------
     
    This pack contains a small sub-set of the "SF2 C/N/R/F-104A/B/C/D/F/G/J/S Starfighter Super Pack" (see link below). Separated it for users who did not want to install the full F-104 Super Pack just to get the Vietnam era F-104s. You don't need the full pack to use this Vietnam Pack.

    I take NO CREDIT for the work contained in this pack. I made some of them better (All new skins, decals...etc), but I was not the creator. I don't do what I do NOT to take credit, but to give it and appreciate the other contributors who make Combatace a great site for SF2. So here is my humble contribution to the collective. Thank you all for your mod packs!
     
    ------------------------------------------------------------------
     
    This pack includes F-104D (circa 1965) Vietnam era skins, new pilots, hanger, loading, loadout, decals and everything else you need to start flying the F-104s for Vietnam...

    - 2 new plane to fly
    - 4 skins
    - historical decalsets
    - 2 SF-2 Orpheus pods
    - Guns removed & noses restyled

    - Paulopanz skins, decals, screens, data.inis edits & upgrades
     
    Install:
     
    - all in main mod folder (Isn't easy?)
     
    Enjoy.

    F-104A, Pakistani Air Force for SF2
     
    This will work only if you have installed DLC No. 28 AI Aircraft Pack 1, including the F-104A Starfighter. Without this pack installed, you will not have the necessary model files.
     
    Serials include the 12 F-104A aircraft supplied to the PAF, a further 9 loaned by the Royal Jordanian Air Force, and finally two F-104B aircraft of the PAF.

  9. F-104A and C Pack for SF2 by SupGen

    First, read the readmes; all of them! The first two are Spillone104s', this mod is based on his work and those credited in his readmes. Also, as it says in his readmes, you'll need at a minimum SF2E for the stock F-104s. You'll also need to follow the
     
    instructions here: http://combatace.com/topic/57393-flyable-f-104s-for-sf2/ to get the cockpits. This Pack contains six different versions of the Starfighter, three F-104As and three F-104Cs. I felt this was necessary because of the changes that ocurred
     
    over the years; the original A models had no gun and didn't recieve one until 1964, later, in 1967 a number of them recieved the J79-GE-19 engine. The C model was originaly optimized as an interim Nuclear Strike Fighter to fill in until the F-105 came
     
    online, as such it was cleared to carry either the Mk-28 (B28) or Mk-43 (B43) tactical nuclear weapons. Included are dedicated versions of these weapons and Lexx Luthors' Nuke Effects. I've made this an alternate loadout in the later versions(selectable
     
    with the Mission Editor) so if you really want to shake up Uncle Ho, you can. The F-104C also had the ability to carry two more Sidewinders on an under fuselage "Catamaran" ala the F-104G and according to Joe Baugher, while in Viet Nam they did just
     
    that. Raven was good enough to make a version of the "Cat" for both the SEA Camo and standard versions of the F-104C. Batman1978s' Hi-Res Cockpit .Bmps are included, as well as a Radar.bmpfrom Starfighter2s' F-104C Cockpit mod that I cleaned
     
    up a little. Some of the aircraft have benefited from Wrenchs' secondary ADI fix, however, in later versions of the aircraft that had a RWR, the secondary ADI was given over to a visual display. They also use Wrenchs' steerable nose wheel fix, along with
     
    a little bump from Raven. I also modified Spillone104s' "Added 3D Parts" to put the RWR bits on the F-104C_67. I think that's about it; it was a lot of work but if you enjoy it, it's worth it. As always, good luck, good hunting, and give 'em hell!
    SupGen,

  10. F-104J Starfighter SF2

    This is a fast repaint of the F-104G Starfighter.
    It represents an F-104J Starfighters as used by the Japanese Air Self Defence Force, 1962 to 1986. Since the Japanese were forbidden at the time to have have aircraft with an offensive capability, I removed everything except IRM, but any weapons you want can be re-added.
    There squadrons are included, the 302 Hikotai, 206 Hilotai, and the last user of the "J" Starfighter, the Air Proving Wing at Gifu.
    This is not a complete aircraft. There are no LOD's, cockpit or avionics included. To make this work properly, you must have the F-104G Starfighter from SF2 Europe, the cockpit from Strike Fighters and the DLC F-4EJ Phantom II since the serial numbers I used are from that aircraft.
    Thanks to TK and his crew for the Starfighter and the game.
     
    Enjoy, Pappy

  18. QF-104A

    Lockheed QF-104A Starfighter for Strike Fighters 2
     
    The QF-104A was a special modified version of the (Y)F-104A Star-fighter which could be flown remotely controlled. The control was done by F-104 pilots on the ground or inside another aircraft.
    The conversion of the (Y)F-104A to QF-104A was approved on 19 Februar 1960 by the USAF. Testing of the QF was conducted during the period of 9 Januar 1961 to 16 October 1961.
    The reason for converting the (Y)F-104A was the need for high altitude, high mach targets for the development of ground-to-air (BOMARC) and air-to-air (AIM7 - AIM9 - GAR2B - MB1 - AIM4) missiles.
    At the end of the summer in 1972 the QF-104 drone program had come to an end and the F-104D's were handed over to the Puerto Rice ANG which could use them very well. All of the personnel that were in the QF-104 program were reassigned to other duties and bases.
    In total 24 QF-104's have been used by the USAF. Twenthy of them were actually killed as targets and 1 crashed while flying a manned mission. The pilot ejected safely.
    What has happened to the other 3 aircraft is not known but it is very likely that they have been withdrawn from use.
    In total the drone-flight has accomplished 162 unmanned missions. Most of the QF mission were flown at Eglin AFB. However, some were flown at Holloman AFB (NewMexico) and a small number at Point Mugu NAS in California (for the US NAVY).
     
    The QF-104A were of course different from the normal 104’s.
    The most important modifications/changes included (in reality there are a lot more...) :
     
    1 - The QF-104A received anti-skid brakes.
    2 - A smoke-generator was applied (JP-4 pumped into the exhaust).
    3 - Remote control system to fly the aircraft unmanned.
    4 - A dayglow paintscheme was applied. It was an “eyecatcher”.
    Originally the aircraft serial numbers were painted white. This was unsatisfactory as they were not highly visible against the dayglow. For that reason they were changed to black lateron.
    5 - A special system which is able to make in flight air-starts remotely. In fact several were successfully made over the years.
    6 - Due to the high-rate of stall problems with the GE J79 3A engines the QF was repowered by the 3B version of this engine. This solved the stall-problems.
    7 - A self-destruction device was mounted on the QF for emergency reasons. This device was remotely controlled
    8 - A changed cockpit layout to support all typical QF-104 systems.
    9 - Additional gun-bay and case storage fuel tanks.
    10 - Optical (5) camera scoring system. Three camera’s were located in the nose radome and 2 could be found inside the left external fueltank.
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
     
    Pilot Notes:
     
    The default nation for this plane is USAF "friendly plane".
    Inside the QF-104A there is a folder named "For Mescalero Proving Grounds", if you want to use this aircraft with that mod simply replace the data.ini file. Now it will be a "red" target. :'(

  19. F-104S (79)

    ****F-104S (79)****
     
    You have downloaded my version of Aeritalia's F-104S, the final and most definitive version of the Zipper. This particular version
    is a bit curious because when the Italians placed the demand that it be able to engage in the BVR fight with license-built Raytheon
    Sparrow III missile, it required them to add avionics that hadn't originally been intended to be used in the Starfighter.
     
    This forced the engineers at Aeritalia to remove the 20mm M61A1 cannon to make room.
     
    There is one skin and markings for four units:
     
    23° Stormo/5° Gruppo 'Veltro'
     
    21° Stormo/53° Gruppo 'Tigres'
     
    102° Stormo/5° Gruppo
     
    155° Stormo/50° Gruppo 'Pantere Nere'

    A short history...
     
    The ROCAF/Taiwan's secret 34th Squadron's RB-69A/P2V-7U ELINT/SIGINT aircraft flew electronic reconnaissance missions over China and Vietnam. Overall, from 1953 to 1967, 34th Squadron flew 838 missions, 148 Black Bat crew members went down with 15 aircraft. A few were captured after being shot down and later released in Hong Kong. Last squadron's operational mission was flown on Jan. 25, 1967. After 1967, 34th Squadron stopped flying over and near Mainland China, and moved to special ops over Vietnam, until 1972. 12 members of 34th SQ also involved in CIA's Project Main Street in 1971 to 1972, involving tapping North Vietnam's communication link.
     
    The Black Cat Squadron was a squadron of the Republic of China Air Force that flew the U-2 surveillance plane out of Taoyuan Airbase in northern Taiwan, from 1961 to 1974. The formal designation of the squadron was the 35th Squadron, operating under the cover of a high altitude weather research squadron. 26 ROCAF pilots successfully completed U-2 training in the US and flew 220 operational missions, including 102 surveillance flights over the People's Republic of China.
    During the squadron's 14 years of existence, five U-2's were shot down by PRC air defenses, with three pilots killed and 2 pilots captured. One other pilot was killed while performing an operational mission off China coast. Seven other Black Cat U-2s were lost during training missions, killing 6 pilots.
    The squadron usually had only two U-2 assigned to it, sometimes down to just one aircraft. A total of 19 U-2s were assigned to the Black Cat Squadron, over fourteen years.
    The intelligence gathered by the Black Cat Squadron, which included evidence of a military build-up on the Sino-Soviet border, may have contributed to the U.S. opening to China during the Nixon administration by revealing the escalating tensions between the two communist nations. Shortly after Nixon's visit to Beijing, all reconnaissance flights over the People's Republic ceased, and the Black Cat Squadron was officially disbanded in the spring of 1974.

  21. F-104SM_ROCAF

    F-104SM_ROCAF for SF2
     
    This is my modified F-104G to the F-104S series (which I really like). In the late 1960s, Taiwan was looking at purchasing F-104S from Italy, the deal never went through. Only the Turkish Air Froce bought 40 F-104S from Italy.
     
    Please place the appreciate content from each folder into each specific folder base on SF2 format.
     
    F-104G cockpit .LOD is not included. Please follow Wrench's instruction under the knowledge section.

    A short history...
     
    The ROCAF/Taiwan's secret 34th Squadron's RB-69A/P2V-7U ELINT/SIGINT aircraft flew electronic reconnaissance missions over China and Vietnam. Overall, from 1953 to 1967, 34th Squadron flew 838 missions, 148 Black Bat crew members went down with 15 aircraft. A few were captured after being shot down and later released in Hong Kong. Last squadron's operational mission was flown on Jan. 25, 1967. After 1967, 34th Squadron stopped flying over and near Mainland China, and moved to special ops over Vietnam, until 1972. 12 members of 34th SQ also involved in CIA's Project Main Street in 1971 to 1972, involving tapping North Vietnam's communication link.
     
    The Black Cat Squadron was a squadron of the Republic of China Air Force that flew the U-2 surveillance plane out of Taoyuan Airbase in northern Taiwan, from 1961 to 1974. The formal designation of the squadron was the 35th Squadron, operating under the cover of a high altitude weather research squadron. 26 ROCAF pilots successfully completed U-2 training in the US and flew 220 operational missions, including 102 surveillance flights over the People's Republic of China.
    During the squadron's 14 years of existence, five U-2's were shot down by PRC air defenses, with three pilots killed and 2 pilots captured. One other pilot was killed while performing an operational mission off China coast. Seven other Black Cat U-2s were lost during training missions, killing 6 pilots.
    The squadron usually had only two U-2 assigned to it, sometimes down to just one aircraft. A total of 19 U-2s were assigned to the Black Cat Squadron, over fourteen years.
    The intelligence gathered by the Black Cat Squadron, which included evidence of a military build-up on the Sino-Soviet border, may have contributed to the U.S. opening to China during the Nixon administration by revealing the escalating tensions between the two communist nations. Shortly after Nixon's visit to Beijing, all reconnaissance flights over the People's Republic ceased, and the Black Cat Squadron was officially disbanded in the spring of 1974.

  22. Lockheed NF-104A for SF2

    Lockheed NF-104A for Strike Fighters 2
     
    In 1963, three ex-USAF F-104As (56-756, -760, and -762) were taken out of storage at Davis Monthan AFB and modified as NF-104A aerospace training aircraft. All of the military equipment was removed and the original F-104A vertical fin was replaced by the larger fin that was used on the F-104G. The wingspan was increased by four feet (to 25.94 feet) and a set of hydrogen peroxide control thrusters were mounted at the nose, tail, and wingtips. A 6000 pound thrust Rocketdyne LR121/AR-2-NA-1 auxiliary rocket engine was mounted on the tail above the jet exhaust pipe. This rocket engine could be throttled from 3000 to 6000 pounds of thrust, and the burn time was about 105 seconds.
     
    The first NF-104A was delivered on October 1, 1963, with the other two following a month later. They were operated by the Aerospace Research Pilot School at Edwards AFB, which was commanded at that time by Colonel Charles E. "Chuck" Yeager.
     
    On December 6, 1963, the first NF-104A set an unofficial world altitude record of 118,860 feet for aircraft taking off under their own power. The official record at that time was 113,829 feet, set by the Mikoyan/Gurevich Ye-66A, an experimental version of the MiG-21 Fishbed. Later, the same NF-104A flown by Major R. W. Smith reached an altitude of 120,800 feet.
     
    On December 10, 1963, the second NF-104A (56-762), with Chuck Yeager at the controls, went out of control at an altitude of 104,000 feet and fell in a flat spin to 11,000 feet. Yeager managed to eject successfully at that altitude, although he was badly burned on his face by the rocket motor of his ejector seat. The aircraft was destroyed in the ensuing crash. An investigation later showed that the cause of the crash was a spin that resulted from excessive angle of attack and lack of aircraft response. The excessive angle of attack was not caused by pilot input but by a gyroscopic condition set up by the J79 engine spooling after shut down for the rocket-powered zoom climb phase. So it wasn't Chuck's fault.
     
    In June of 1971, the third NF-104A, with Capt. Howard C. Thompson at the controls, suffered an inflight explosion of its rocket motor. Although Thompson was able to land safely, the aircraft's rocket motor and half its rudder were blown away. Since the program was about to end in any case, this aircraft was retired.
     
    The number one NF-104A is currently on display on top of a pylon in front of the USAF Test Pilot School.
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
     
    IMPORTANT!!!
    You need SF2E to have the stock F-104G and SFP1 for the cockpit files.
    or follow these precious instructins: http://combatace.com/topic/57393-flyable-f-104s-for-sf2
    Another thing... there are some minor differences between SFP1 and SF2E models and one of these is a bit different mapping on the nose. So it will be included an optional SFP1 f-104_2.bmp file.
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
     
    Pilot Notes:
     
    -The rocket engine is set to use "Thrust vectoring" as a throttle control to permit separate control from the jet engine. The rocket will operate only with afterburning regime and with only 2 stages, half and full power. From idle to military it will not generate thrust and so will not affect fuel consumption.
     
    -This plane is equipped with hydrogen peroxide Reaction Control System like the real plane. To engage the system simply throttle the rocket a bit over idle.
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
     
    Installation:
     
    Simply copy all the files in the respective directory of your game folder.
