  2. F-105D/F Thunderchief ANG and AFRES skinpack

    This mod extends the in game life of the F-105 to match the real 1981 through 1984 retirements. It
    features skins for the early 70's, late 70's, early 80's and a special skin featuring the noseart of the
    149th TFS of the Virginia ANG. The markings are as accurate as I can find through several days of searching
    the web for photos of the listed units.
     
    - Required: You will need SF2, SF2 Europe or SF2 Vietnam for the stock F-105D_66.
     
    - Included: Skins for 4 ANG and 3 AFRES F-105 operators. I have not included the Georgia ANG as that is
    represented in the F-105G mod.
    Also Included is an F-105F_66 aircraft. While the majority of F's were
    used as Weasels, conversion and proficiency traning still had to take place. Every Thud fighter squadron
    had at least 1 F on the books.
    Data.ini's have been edited also to reflect proper service years.
     
    - Credits: The Wrench, for his rerelease of ArmourDave's F-105F pack, as well as a few parts of TGAs that I
    used from his F-100D ANG skinpack.He even answered a stupid question by yours truly.
     
    TK, for the stock Thuds and ability to mod this game we call SF2.
    and me? well i just
     
     
    //////////////////////////////// THUD ANG AND AFRES UNITS ////////////////////////////////////////////////
     
    - 119th TFS, New Jersey ANG 1970-1973
    - 127th TFS, Kansas ANG 1971-1978 (RTU for F-105s in USAF after 71)
    - 128th TFS, Georgia ANG 1979-1983 (only ANG Weasel unit, flew G, not represented in this pack)

    - 149th TFS, Virginia ANG 1971-1981
    - 457th TFS, AFRES Carswell AFB 1971-1978 (flew the Thunderstick II model)
    - 465th TFS, AFRES Tinker AFB 1971-1981 (was originally the 305th TFS for first 13 months. Due to short
    timespan, left as 465th)
    - 466th TFS, AFRES Hill AFB 1971-1984 (initially flew B models, moved on to D in 1981)
     
    //////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////

    = For SF2, Full-4/5 Merged (Full-5 Reccomended/Preferred) =
     
    *Note: the destroyed model referenced herein 'looks' for the stock destroyed F-105D lod. So, at the very least you MUST have either SF2E, or SF2V to gain access to said destroyed model. Hence the Full 4/5 Merged reccomendation*
     
    Some major upgrades to ArmorDave F-105G "Wild Weasel" Thunderchief, bring it in line with SF2 at the Full-5 Merged/Latest Patch level (as of July 2012).
     
    This mod is desinged to REPLACE any eariler SF2 update/upgrade versions of AD's aircraft that may be availalbe.
     
    Skins remain in bmp format (as they're not excpetionally large in size), and Decal Randomization is TRUE. Damage textures are the older tga versions.
    The data ini has all new FM parameters, loadouts have been 'adjusted' for Game usage (and may not reflect Real World situations, but =WILL= reflect Game World situations). New engine sound, and some other small tweeks. A new SF2 version of my 'box art' Hangar screen is included.
    No weapons are included, other than the drop tanks, as I've referenced all stock 3W items.
    See the "Notes" section for more info on the changes.
     
    When 'in game', you'll see on the Aircraft Selection Drop-Down Menu
     
    F-105G Thunderchief WW (AD)
     
    This will differentiate this aircraft from any others you may (or may not) have.
     
    As always, fairly easy to follow, yet detailed install instructions are included. So, please -READ- them. Also, give the "Notes" section a read too for futher explinations, clarifactions, illuminations and so forth. And notes about any SF2V campaign that may use this aircraft; some slight editing of the campaign ini WILL be necessary due to the 'name change'.
     
    A full listing of credits, as always, is below the Install Instructions.
     
    Good Hunting!

    This mod is desinged to REPLACE any eariler SF2 update/upgrade versions of AD's aircraft that

    The package contains 2 complete aircraft:
     
    F-105F (standard NM finish)
    EF-105F Wild Weasel II (SEA camo)
     
    Skins remain in bmp format (as they're not excpetionally large in size), and Decal

    Although the F-105F as used in the Wild Weasel configuraion never actually "officially"
    recieved the "EF" moniker, I've done so here to diferentiate it from the standard or garden
    variety F model.

    ***********************************
    F-105F and G Thunderchief introduction & History
    ***********************************
     
     
    The F-105F was heavily committed to combat over Southeast Asia. Some were quickly adapted for the "Wild Weasel" air-defense suppression role, fitted with electronics to detect enemy radars and target air defense sites for destruction in advance of strike packages. The original Air Force "Wild Weasel I" was a modified two-seat North American F-100F Super Sabre, but the F-100 wasn't fast enough to keep up with F-105 strike packages, and so the F-105F was selected for the role.
     
    The major elements of the modification were addition of the "APR-25 Radar Homing And Warning (RHAW)" system, which picked up and located radar sites; the "APR-26 Launch Warning Receiver (LWR)", which provided warning of a missile launch; and an "IR-133 Scan Receiver" to search for emitters. The back-seat "electronics warfare officer (EWO)" controlled these devices and had a cockpit CRT to help locate targets.
     
    The first such F-105F "Wild Weasel II", sometimes informally known as an "EF-105F", performed its first flight on 15 January 1966, and the Wild Weasel Thuds were engaged in active combat by the spring of that year. A total of 86 Wild Weasel F-105F conversions were performed.
     
    The Wild Weasel F-105F was armed with the new "AGM-45 Shrike Anti-Radar Missile (ARM)", a modified Sparrow AAM with a radar-homing head, to destroy radar transmitters, and attacked air-defense sites with CBU-24 cluster bombs and other munitions. Sometimes Wild Weasel F-105Fs worked with F-105Ds in "hunter-killer" teams, with the Wild Weasel Thud pinpointing the target and the F-105Ds destroying it.
     
    While other aircraft could avoid air-defense sites when possible, Wild Weasels actually had to attract their attention and take them on. This led to the Wild Weasel motto, which was "YGBSM", standing for "You Gotta Be s**ttin' Me!" Apparently this was the reaction of the first Wild Weasel aircrews when they were told what they were getting themselves into.
     
    Wild Weasel crews were generally gutsy sorts, and they evolved tactics for outflying SAMs launched at them. They would watch for a missile launch, and then fly straight at the SAM at high speed, turning at the last moment. The fast-moving SAM would not be able to turn quickly enough to bring the fighter into the blast radius of its warhead.
     
     
    Two Wild Weasel F-105F pilots won the highest American military award, the Congressional Medal of Honor. On 10 March 1967, Captain Merlyn F. Dethlefsen was piloting one of four Wild Weasel Thuds paving the way for a strike package. The leader was shot down by anti-aircraft fire, and North Vietnamese MiG-21 fighter made repeated passes on the survivors, trying to force them to dump their ordnance. Dethlefsen pressed home the attack anyway and destroyed the site. All three surviving Wild Weasels returned home with severe damage. Dethlefsen was personally awarded the medal by President Johnson.
     
    On 19 April 1967, Lieutenant Colonel Leo K. Thorsness had completed a Wild Weasel strike when his wingmates were shot down. He was low on fuel but stayed around to cover the air rescue operation, driving of a flight of MiG-17s that tried to interfere. Thorsness shot down one MiG and damaged another. He passed up an opportunity to refuel from a tanker when another aircraft breathing fumes showed up, and landed safely at Ubon, a forward base in Thailand.
     
    On 30 April, Thorsness' F-105 was hit and badly damaged. He and his EWO ejected, Thorsness being badly injured in the process, and were captured by the North Vietnamese. They spent over six years in a North Vietnamese POW camp.
     
    * 56 Wild Weasel F-105Fs were later updated to an improved "Wild Weasel III" configuration with the designation "F-105G", featuring improved avionics, as well as jammer pods that were faired into the forward fuselage, freeing up the underwing pylons for other stores. 14 of the F-105Gs were further modified to carry the big AGM-78 "Standard Anti-Radar Missile (STARM)", an air-launched variant of the US Navy's "Standard" SAM.
