  15. S-125 Neva. 5P71 & 5P73 Launchers.

    5P71 and 5P73 launchers for S-125 surface to air missiles for SF2 series game. This is mostly eye candy stuff. Just to improve the visual side of the game.
    Required weapon to run this mod is provided. In this case 5W24 and 5W27 surface to air missiles. 
    In this pack, you will find new objects for SA-3 launchers.  But no worries nothing needs to be overwritten. 
    Basic modding skills are required to run this mod.  (copy/paste, mod folder structure etc.) 
    Mostly this mod is for modders, terrain builders.
    Sam launchers are set to network type S-125 and S-125M. So make sure your radars are compatible. Otherwise, the radar family/network type needs to be adjusted and associated with your other SAM objects. SA-3 /S-125 family in this case.
    All ini files are beta....mostly to make the object working.
    I'm hoping someone will do correct ini edits. Only if there are still some modders around here.....
    So do not complain if something is not working- just edit your way. You have working lod and skins...
    Missiles perhaps need some more editing also. But
    Again this is a very basic mod and I am aware (so you should be also) that ini files should be edited further. 
     
    Basic skins green and tan. 
    All skins are in 2048x2048 format. So you have to resize for your own preferred size.
    So play with it, and hope someone will do better ini for this.

  18. Crotale SAM system

        
        CROTALE mod by GKABS

        1) Historical background

       The Development of the Crotale Surface-to-Air Missile system began in 1964.
       The Crotale is a very short range SAM system (Sol-Air à Très Courte Portée or SATCP).
       It was said that South Africa paid 85% (France: 15%) of the first step development 
       costs of this SAM System. The Crotale was named "Cactus" for South Africa.
       Thomson-CSF for the radar and the electronics, and Matra (Engine division) for the 
       R440 missile were the two prime contractors.
       South Africa received the first systems in 1971.
       In 1971 France placed the first order for operational tests: 1 Acquisition Unit and 
       2 Firing Units.
       The Armée de l'Air bought this SAM system in order to protect their airfields.
       The Crotale in this first opérational version (Crotale 1000) was above all engaged 
       for the Egypt-Libya and Angola wars in the 1980s.
       Further developments were launched for several customers among the 15 ones which 
       ordered this system.

        2) Installation in your Strike Fighters 2 installation(s)

       There are 2 options :
        - The "Sand" version in order to put in any "Desert" type SF2 install,
        - The "Green" version for any "European" type SF2 install.

       So you'll find them into 2 separated packs ready to play :)

  20. SA-14 Gremlin / 9K34 Strela-3 MANPADS Pack

    SF2 SA-14 Gremlin / 9K34 Strela-3 MANPADS Pack 1.0
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    This pack features the SA-14 Gremlin. It is a man-portable, shoulder-fired, low-altitude, 
    infrared guided surface-to-air missile system (MANPADS) developed as a response to 
    the limited performance of the earlier SA-7 Grail. The missile was largely based on the 
    earlier Strela-2 and thus development proceeded rapidly. 
    The most significant change over the Strela-2 was the introduction of an all-new infra-red 
    homing seeker head. The new seeker worked on FM modulation (con-scan) principle, 
    which is less vulnerable to jamming and decoy flares than the earlier AM (spin-scan) seekers,
    which were easily fooled by flares and even the most primitive infrared jammers. The 
    new seeker also introduced detector element cooling in the form of a pressurized nitrogen 
    bottle attached to the launcher.
    The effect of cooling was to expand the seeker's lead sulphide detector element's 
    sensitivity range to longer wavelengths (slightly over 4 µm as opposed to 2.8 µm of 
    uncooled PbS elements). In practice this made possible the tracking of cooler targets 
    over longer ranges, and enabled forward-hemisphere engagement of jets under favourable 
    circumstances. The seeker also had better tracking rate, enabling the missile to track 
    maneuvering of fast and approaching targets.
    A negative side effect from the aforementioned improvements was increased missile 
    weight, which caused a slight decrease in the kinematic performance compared with
    Strela-2M (SA-7B). Against relatively slow, low-altitude battlefield air threats the overall 
    effectiveness was much improved.
    The new system was accepted into service in 1974. Strela-3 missiles have been exported 
    to over 30 countries. 
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Known issues:
    - System has limited all aspect capability mostly against slow, low-altitude targets.
     
    - Helicopters have higher survival rate per hit because in some cases missiles hit the tail rotor 
      without causing significant damage. I guess this is another game engine characteristic.
    - Low altitude (lower than 500 meters) performance is downgraded for current missile values. 
      By increasing noise rejection the missile becomes capable of hitting targets in lower altitude 
      but at the same time the single shot hit/kill probability is being increased to an unrealistic level. 
    - Fuze distances are longer compared with the actual lethal and damage radius of the system. 
      In SF2 world the real high explosive warhead quantity is big enough to destroy a fighter size 
      target even in 10 meters! 
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    As always open readme.txt first to see installation instructions and credits.
    Lot of research and hard work was made to make this SAM as realistic as possible.
    More than 2000 launches took place during testing!
    Enjoy as much as you can this mod and leave comments with your in-game experience
    in the support topic!

  21. T-67 main battle tank

    T-67 main battle tank (standard tank) (What if)
    *************************************************************
    This mod is made for SF2.
    ----------------------------------------------------------
    I. History
    What if the soviets would have introduced the Object 167 into service?
    Object 167 was the successor of the T-62 (object 166) with a new suspension system (was later used on T-72) and a new turbo diesel engine with 700 hp instead 580 hp in T-62.
    Top speed of the tank was 65 km/h on road, 40 cross country. Range around 450 km. So it was comparable with a Leopard 1 tank, but had a much better armour.
    There were some versions of object 167. One with gas turbine (helicopter engine), one with 100mm gun D-54TS (comparable with britisch L-7 gun) and one with 115mm smoothbore gun and ATGM Maljutka (AT-2 Sagger)
    The T-67, i present you here, is the version of object 167 with the D-54TS 100 mm gun.

  22. P-15 / P-19 Flat Face pack V.1

    P-15 and P-19 radar objects for SF2 series game. This is mostly eye candy stuff. Just to improve the visual side of the game.
    Pack contains early P-15 Tropa on Zil-157 bed and late P-15 Flat Face P-15M2 Squat Eye and P-19 Dunay on Zil-131 chassis.
    In this pack, you will find new objects. But no worries nothing needs to be overwritten. 
    Basic modding skills are required to run this mod.  (copy/paste, mod folder structure etc.) 
    Mostly this mod is for modders, terrain builders.
    As some radar settings need to be adjusted for proper working with your installs. Radar family/network type needs to be adjusted and associated with your other SAM objects.
    Also, placement on terrains might be strange sometimes because of construction of the lod.  
    Userlist ini is very generic and not really 100% accurate.
    All ini files are beta....mostly to make the object working -  rotate radar mast, bend etc. All stations are set as EW radar and are connected to SA-3 radar network
    I'm hoping someone will do correct ini edits. Only if there are still some modders around here.....
    So do not complain if something is not working- just edit your way. You have working lod and skins...
    Basic skins green and tan. 
    All skins are in jpg format. Tga in 1024x1024. So you have to resize for your own preferred size.
    Play with it, and hope someone will do better ini for this.
