  1. 52nd Fighter Wing 1994

    52nd Fighter Wing 1994
    This mod brings together all of the aircraft of the 52nd Fightere Wing at Spangdahlem AB, Federal Republic of Germany in 1994. It features historic serials and skins for the era
        Included
    A-10A_93, F-16C/D_B50, F-15C/D_91 aircraft
    Sounds, effects and decals for all of the above
    Assorted Weapons
    Special Fuel Tanks to allow selection from different aircraft.
        Installation
    unzip, add contents of "2 Mod Folder" to the mod folder of your choice. allow overwrites
    NOTE ON SPECIAL TANKS AND MIXED FLIGHTS
    I HAVE SET UP A SERIES OF ROCKET/FUEL TANKS (MINUS THE ROCKETS) SO THAT FUEL TANKS OTHER THAN WHAT IS NATIVE TO THE AIRCRAFT CAN BE SELECTED, ALLOWING MIX FLIGHTS OF AIRCRAFT. THE TANKS FOR EACH AIRCRAFT IS IDENTIFIED BY A NUMBER AT FRONT (IE "370 GAL TANK") WHILE THE NON REGULAR ONES HAVE THE AIRCRAFT NAME IN FRONT (IE F-16 370 GAL TANK). THEY WILL APPEAR FOR THE MOST PART AT THE BOTTOM OF THE MENU SCROLL
    IF YOU CHOOSE TO DO THIS, IT IS HIGHLY RECCOMENDED THAT YOU SELECT THE F-16C, THEN CHANGE TO THE F-15 OR A-10 IN THE LOADOUT MENU SCREEN ( flightname 1-1 IF YOU WANT TO CHANGE THE LEAD). THIS WILL ALLOW YOU TO USE ALL AVAILABLE WEAPONS, AS THE F-16 CAN CARRY ANYTHING THE A-10 OR F-15 CAN.

    _____________________________________   UPDATE 3 Mar 24    _______________________________ ____________________________
                     data inis on F-16s updated based on work by FANATIC MODDER

  2. Sentry '04: USAF E-3B/C's of the 552nd ACW and PACAF

                                        SENTRY '04:  USAF E-3B/C's of the 552nd ACW and PACAF
        Since 1976 the USAF has used the E-3 Sentry to control the air battlespace it finds itself in. Starting in 1995, the E-3 fleet began to recieve the Block 30/35 upgrade. These upgrades improved its communications, navigation, and electronic support equipment over the older versions. The most visible change was the ESM pods on the cheeks, and additional fairings on the chin and rear of the aircraft. These upgrades continued until the entire fleet was completed in fall of 2001.
       This mod represents the E-3B/C fleet at a time of major restructuring, with the 552nd Air Control Wing having reduced to 3 squadrons and the two PACAF squadrons (961st AACS at Kadena and 962nd AACS at Elmendorf) operating 3 of each.
                Included
    This mod includes skin for the E-3B aircraft with fake pilot upgrades, skins and decals for all 5 squadrons active in 2004 as well as a 552nd ACW overall skin
                Installation
    unzip mod, add contents of "2 Mod Folder" to mod folder of your choice. allow overwrites
                Known Issues
    - The Sentry aircraft pull hard to port (left) when taking off. This only occurs when the player is hand flying the aircraft, when  AI or autopilot flies this is not an issue
    - The cockpit is not a great match for the aircraft, however SF2 does not support any of their (E-3 or CT-49) original missions as player flyable and they were originally intended to be eye candy. Until we get a 3d modeller that wants to do a new E-3 or even 707 proper pit, this is how it will be.
                Credits

  3. Gunfighters! 366th Wing, Mountain Home's Mini Air Force in the 1990s

                                                 Gunfighters!             366th Wing, Mountain Home's Mini Air Force in the 1990s
        In the 1990s, CSAF General Merril McPeak had a concept to test; expeditionary wings that had the entire range of capabilities to wage an air campaign. This lead to change for the 366th Fighter Wing, "Gunfighters", as they transitioned from a F-11 fighter unit to a composite wing, with bomber aircraft, tankers, and fighters specializing in air to air, SEAD and interdiction roles.
        The wing participated in several exercises and combat operations throughout the 1990s to validate the composite wing concept. Ultimately, economics of operating so many different aircraft types in one wing and base led to the consolodation of the Wing as a F-15E Strike Eagle unit.
        But, for about a decade, the Gunfighters hosted an entire mini air force, ready for its' nation's call to action. This mod is a tribute to that experiment.
            Installation
    This package includes everything you need to get into action. Unzip the mod, ope the "2. Mod Folder", and place contents into your chosen mod folder. Allow overwrites as necessary.

  4. SENTRY : Aircraft of the NATO E-3A Component

                                                                                          SENTRY:  Aircraft of the NATO E-3A Component
        Since 1983, NATO has operated international squadrons of E-3A Sentrys, commonly referred to as AWACS from Geilenkirchen AB. Registered in Luxembourg due to international law, the NATO AEW&C Force held watch during the final decade of the Cold War, participated in operations over the Balkans and Libya, and assisted with US homeland defense after the attacks on 9/11/01.
        During the late 1990s, the NATO Sentry fleet gained upgrades in line with the USAF's Block 30/35 upgrades. These included distinctive fairings on the aircraft chin, cheek and tail housing ESM equipment. The aircraft retained their original E-3A designations after the upgrades.
        For several years, retired 707 airliners were also operated as trainers to reduce E-3 flying hours and as transports to support NAEWF missions as well as other NATO missions when available. These aircraft were designated CT-49A and operated unti the mid 2010s.
                Included
    This mod includes skin for the E-3A, an E-3A_98 aircraft with fake pilot upgrades and CT-49A trainer aircraft, as well as decals and a set of ESM pods for the newer E-3A
                Installation
    unzip mod, add contents of "2 Mod Folder" to mod folder of your choice. allow overwrites
                Known Issues

  5. Working Past Retirement: Metrea KC-135R

    Working Past Retirement: Metrea KC-135R
    This skinpack is a representation of the 4 KC-135R operated by Metrea Strategic Mobility. Bought from Singapore in 2019, these contract tankers are supporting USAF as well as NATO operations

            Included*
    KC-135R (Civil) aircraft
    two skins to highlight the blue Shamu scheme (3 serial numbers) and the Agean Ghost Scheme (1 serial number)
    Cockpit and ini edits to make player flyable
    drogue "weapon", addable in the loadout screens

        Required
    a legal functioning install of any SF2 version
        Installation
    unzip this mod, then install new mod folder categories to your mod folder (Aircraft to aircraft etc)
    allow overwrites
    fire up game, take off and go pass gas
        Known Issues
    -This is meant as eye candy. unfortunately, SF2 doesnt support air to air refueling so the best to be done is set up a recon mission and then park it in an orbit.
    -Also, the C-130 cockpit is not too accurate. it is included mainly so that it can be player selected (i had to test it somehow). remember that there is no air to air refueling in game, so these are more eye candy than operational birds
    - there are currently no wingtip MPRS pods for these aircraft. Once some have been sourced (via new aircraft model or pod model) they will be added in
    -the Agean Ghost is not 100% accurate. there were not very good pics of the wings, plus model quirks meant some patches had to be put on each wing ot allow for color onthe airbrakes (all 4 of which were mapped to the two on the left wing)

    *Wagner CD not included

    yakarov79- the fake pilot ESM pods
    Dave- consultation and approvals on the original project
    Daddyairplanes- serial numbers, new arrangement for skins, general ini editing

  8. Israeli T-6 Texan II "Efroni"

    Today (26/4/23) is israel's independence day, so ive decided to release this skin/ modified aircraft:
    This mod represents the T-6 Texan II in Israeli service. I've modified Dels's T-6 to have aerobatic smoke  just like the IAF aerobatics team has.  To activate it you simply need to push your throttle to max.
    To add this mod simply drop the files in the corresponding file locations (Sounds in Sounds, Aircraft in Aircraft, etc).

    Dels: Original mod + templates

  12. 23d Wing Pope AFB 1994

    23d Wing Pope AFB 1994
    In the 1990s, the USAF experimented with composite wings that would have everything needed within a single unit for deployment into a regional fight.
    The 23 Wing was formed in 1992 to bring about this vision, as applied to direct support of US Army forces. By 1994, 4 squadrons were ready at Pope AFB NC
    to support the US Army's 82d ABN DIV at neighboring Fort Bragg. The 2d and 41st Airlift Squadrons flying the C-130E Hercules, the 74th Fighter Squadron flying
    the F-16C/D Block 40 Vipers, and the 75th Fighter Squadron flying the A-10A Warthog. As is tradition for the 23d Wing, which traces its lineage to the
    Flying Tigers of World War 2, every aircraft in the wing sported a sharks mouth.
    This mod brings together everything needed to get the 23d Wing into the fight. Complete aircraft (including a newly revamped F-16D Block 40 from ravenclaw007), period specific weapons, sounds and effects.
    Included
    Viper Team F-16C Block 40 and 75th FS skin
    ravenclaw007/Viper Team F-16D Block 40 and 75th FS skin
    Dels C-130E_SKE with 2d ALS, 41st ALS Grey and 23d Wing Euro 1 skins
    Various period specific weapons (actively in use 1994-1996)
    Installation
    unzip folder * drop into mod folder of your choice * allow overwrites
    Known Issues
    The C-130 and its weapons are primarlily eye candy. There are unfortuneatly no paratroop drop missions in SF2, and so if you want to drop say 1/325 INF onto a drop zone,
    you will need to select a recon mission and punch those partarooper out by hand
    I have been having issues getting the LAPES Sheridan tank to create a "crater" after dropping. it is still included for the visuals of puching a tank out the back of a Herk,
    and because there was still an Airborne Armor Bn at Bragg in 1994. But at this time the tank will disappear on contact with the ground
     
    Credits
    Viper Team               all F-16 models included
    ravenclaw_007         tweeked F-16D model and templates (C and D)

    I hope you enjoy this mod. After 12 years total at Ft Bragg (all but 4 of them seeing the Hogs overhead near everyday) this one was a bit more personal than some other mods

    XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX
    UPDATE 31 DEC 20220
    XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX
    After further research on other Hog units, and closer examination of the TW model, i have included Spectre8750's A-10A_93 model with updated numbers list.
    I also changed several serials after determining that they were at other bases in 1995. The deduction I used to find the C-130 serials didnt work as well
    for the Hogs. But it is fixed and I even discovered two Tiger Shark Hogs that were still in Euro 1 camoflage at the time. The A-10A_93 features two skins for
    the bulk of the gray birds and the two green ones.

    ********************************************************
    DISCLAIMER
    ----------
    This is a third party add on of the F-117A using a model
    and cockpit created by me.
    The original flight model was made by Fubar512 but modified
    by me.
    It is designed for and works in the SF2 series of games.
    VERSION NOTES
    -------------
    This package is as close as I could get to representing the
    F-117A in service with the USAF at the time of Operation
    Desert Storm.
    There are some parts which I have compromised the detail
    on or removed all together in order to achieve an acceptable
    level of detail without reducing game performance or increasing
    development time.
    An example of this is the arrestor hook. The real F-117A has a door
    that jettisons when the hook is deployed. I have modelled the
    door to open and close so consequently, the hook is retractable.
    Animation Key #1 to open/close the refuel door.
    Animation Key #2 to extend/retract the COMM and NAV antennas.
    Animation Key #10 to open/close the canopy.
    Weapon bay doors are automatic on weapon release.
    Brake chute will only deploy while on the ground, below 100kts and
    with the airbrake extended.
    The ejection seat included in this package comes from ravenclaw's
    ACES II Ejection Seat for A-10 vers. 1.0 so all the credit goes
    to him.
    The original package is available for download from:
    http://combatace.com/files/file/12472-aces-ii-ejection-seat-for-a-10/
    INSTALLATION
    ------------
    Very simple, extract the files from the archive to your
    C:\Users\*NAME*\Saved Games\ThirdWire\StrikeFighters2 folder.
    Next,
    You will need to add the following to your Squadronlist.ini
    file which should be in your Flight AND Pilot Data folders.
    This is so the Unit Names show up. (*NOTE* This is not
    essential). Make sure the XXX is replaced with the next
    number in sequence in your file:
    [SquadronXXX]
    Name=415TFS
    DisplayName=415th TFS Nightstalkers
    Nation=USAF
    The 416th TFS should already be in your Squadronlist.ini, but
    if not, add the following:
    [SquadronXXX]
    Name=416TFS
    DisplayName=416th TFS Silver Knights
    Nation=USAF
    *NOTE* If you do not have a Squadronlist.ini file in your Flight 
    folder you will need to extract it from the MissionData001.CAT
    file in your Flight folder using the CatPack utility.
    That's it.
    You will need Diego's MODUSAF pilot skin for the pilot,
    or you can use whatever skin you like by editing the
    F-117A_Data.ini file.
    REMOVAL
    -------
    Reverse the above steps.

  19. E-8A/C Joint STARS

                                  E-8A/C Joint STARS
    This mod builds upon the E-8C found in the original ODS campaign and corrects for an E-8A as used in Desert Storm.
        Included
    E-8A with skins for Desert Storm, Testing (92-95), and Bosnia
    E-8C with skins for the 93d ACW and the 116th ACW Georgia Air National Guard
        Installation
    unzip, cut/copy and paste to mod folder. allow overwrite (should only apply to ODS mod folders), although for best results remove the old E-8C files from aircraft and decals.
        Credits
    the original model and skin was created by The Mirage Factory, based on the 707 model by Bpao
    C-130 pit by dels
    Skin adjustments, tga and ini work by daddyairplanes
    original moddable game by TK
        Known Issues
    dels C-130 pit is used to make the aircraft player flyable. this pit is not very suited to the 707 airframe (alot of extra frame for a 707), but works for its purpose. The aircraft was not originally intended to be player flyable (airborne command and control not being a player mission set) and is best used as eye candy. However, i always put a pit in so i can see how my work progressed, and leave it for you guys to use too.
    I hope you enjoy this mod

  20. RCAF CC-130 Hercules Pack

    C-130 pack for SF2
     
    ______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
    Based on the C-130 Superpack made by Dels.
     
    Original Dels plane can be found here : http://combatace.com/files/file/16427-c-130-hercules-superpack/
    ______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
     
    This is the CC-130 Hercules as used (''E'' models) and current (''H'' and ''J-30'' models) by the RCAF for the SF2 series of games.
     
    To be used on Dels Hercules ONLY.
     
    These skins represent the scheme used by the RCAF on their CC-130's E, H en J models.
     
    The serial numbers in this skin pack along with planes numbers are real one's. Only exception on 2 serials on the ''H'' models. In this pack, serials 130343 and 130344 are as ''H'' model but it was in fact a ''H-30'' variant.
     
    You will get the following skins in this package :
     
    4 Wing, 436 Transport Squadron :
     
    * Note : other squadrons used the Hercules, but the 436 is the only one operating the ''J'' model so this is what makes me select it.
     
    CC-130E :
    - Early scheme 1
    - Early Scheme 2
    - Early Scheme 3
    - Camo Scheme
    - Low-Viz Grey Scheme
     
    CC-130H :
    - Low-Viz Grey Scheme
     
    CC-130J-30 :
    - Low-Viz Grey Scheme (New color)
     
    You will need to add the following to your Squadronlist.ini file which should be in your Flight AND Pilot Data folders. This is so the Unit Name shows up. (*NOTE* This is not essential). Make sure the XXX is replaced with the next
    sequential number in your file:
     
    [squadronXXX]
    Name=436SQN
    DisplayName=4 Wing, 436 Squadron
    Nation=Canada
     
     
     
     
     
    Two installation choice :
     
     
     
    SKINS ONLY for ''H'' model (assuming you have the Dels Superpack Hercules already installed cause only the CC-130H is in his pack):
     
    Copy the FOLDERS of the current pack objects/aircraft/CC-130H folder in your game aircraft/CC-130H folder.
    Copy the FOLDERS of the current pack decals/CC-130H folder in your game decals/CC-130H folder.
     
    Open the Textureset.ini and edit the file by adding the texture.ini lines. Don't forget to change the file path accordingly.
     
    For the ''E'' and ''J-30'' models, follow the complete aircraft installation for the aircraft and decals folders ONLY.
     
     
     
    COMPLETE AIRCRAFT :
     
    Copy the RCAF CC-130'S PACK Objects/aircraft folders content to your game aircraft folder.
    Copy the RCAF CC-130'S PACK Objects/decals folders content to your game decals folder.
    Copy the RCAF CC-130'S PACK Objects/guns folder content to your game pilots folder.
    Copy the RCAF CC-130'S PACK Objects/weapons folder content to your game weapons folder.
    Copy the files in the RCAF CC-130'S PACK Object.
    Copy the RCAF CC-130'S PACK Sounds folder content to your game sounds folder.

  22. Updated Boeing 757-200

    Updated 757-200 for SF2
     
    This is an update of YEYEYEs SF1 release for use in SF2. I have applied my usual technique to incorporate multiple airlines on one skin per era, with 4 eras from release in the
    mid 1980s through the mid 1990s. More may become available later but templates are included for those that don't want to wait on me.
     
    Installation
    unzip, open folder titled "Mod Folder" and allow overwrites.
    IF YOU HAVE A PREVIOUSLY MODDED FOLDER
    1. delete flight and terrains from "Mod Folder". 2 open the "Specials Folder", insert the nations txt file into your Nations.ini and the terrain txt file into your
    (whatever)Nations.ini in the needed terrain folder.
    templates to wherever you keep files for modding, or delete if you do not desire to mod it
     
    Known Issues
    - It is a bit slow on the pickup. while it can take off from a smaller airbase, best to stick to larger fields
    - It features the same pit as the 767 and other airliners. we do not have an in house pit that is more appropriate at the moment and so most airliners are stuck looking like generic WWII
    bomber pits
    - It has a seam on the bottom of the model that is very pronounced given the decal based marking system i use. however this should not be to noticeable unless you approach it from below.
    When parked on the ground or viewed from the side or above the seam is not noticeable.
    - for all above faults, remember: it is meant as eye candy, not an operational bird! enjoy taking off from Keflavik or Rhein Main and seeing many airlines parked on one ramp

    Additional Notes by FastCargo:
     
    Each model of B-1B has the ability to carry the specific weapons it was authorized for during that time frame. Most of these weapons are included in this package...the preset loadouts represent typical arrangements. The weapon stations have been setup so that you can only load the type and number of weapons for each bay in the loadout screen, reflecting real life limitations.
     
    Also, the maximum gross weight for takeoff at sea level is 470000 pounds...you can easily exceed this just with the default loadouts at full internal fuel weight. It is HIGHLY recommended to lower your internal fuel to 75% to get under the gross weight.
     
    At full gross weight, the AI and you will require the whole runway to takeoff...you will probably not 'unstick' until close to 200 knots. At minimum weight, it should only take about half the runway and about 160 knots unstick. Also, do not rotate above 9 degrees pitch on takeoff before you leave the runway...or you will scrape the tail and may crash.
     
    The FM has been through some major rework to get around the limitation that the sim has with large swing wings. The current FM setup is a compromise to allow docile handling with realistic performance. There are some weaknesses with it, mainly during mid altitude cruise flight tends to take more power than the real aircraft needs. You will find that the FM mimics the real thing in most limitations...lower altitude ceiling at full gross weight, faster roll rates with wings swept back, etc. Also, 'at the limit' handling has been much improved...much more difficult to stall at high speed. Handling is fairly carefree, simulating the real aircraft's fly by wire helping you keep the aircraft within limits. It is still possible to overG or stall...with bad consequences for both.
     
    For mission planning and the AI, the sim uses the 'CruiseSpeed' parameter to determine attack speed, and the LevelBombAI, ReleaseAlt to determine how high it's attack run is. Because of this, you may find the parameters for both to be different for each model. Here is the current list for each one:
     
    B-1B_86 - Speed-540 knots / Alt 1500 feet
    B-1B_92 - Speed-540 knots / Alt 1500 feet
    B-1B_96 - Speed-540 knots / Alt 600 feet
    B-1B_98 and 03 - Speed-320 knots / Alt 15000 feet
     
    The 2 later models are high and slow because they mostly do standoff and PGMs, which usually require altitude.
    The 2 earliest models are low alt, high speed for the nuke mission to get away from the blast (btw, you will NEED .9 mach and 1300 AGL to drop a gravity nuke...or you won't make it out of the blast radius).
    The middle model is same speed, but lower altitude because they didn't carry nukes anymore.
     
    We did our best. Enjoy.
