McDonnell Voodoo FAW.4 for STRIKE FIGHTERS 2
This is a simple mod of erikgen's superb McDonnell F-101B Voodoo to give a fictional Voodoo FAW.4 (Fighter All Weather 4) in the markings for the famous 'Treble One' Squadron of the Royal Air Force during the 1960's.
Delays in the English Electric Lightning programme and the rather pedestrian performance of the Gloster Javelin encouraged the McDonnell Aircraft Company to offer various versions of their outstanding Voodoo aircraft to the RAF initially with the F.1 single-seater and FAW.2 two-seater for RAF Fighter Command and followed by the FR.3 single-seater reconnaisance aircraft for RAF Germany and the improved FAW.4 two-seater for Fighter Command.
Entering service in 1961 the Voodoo FAW.4 served with three squadrons of RAF Fighter Command and supplemented the earlier FAW.2's in the air defence role. Normally armed with two De Havilland 'Skystorm' radar-guided missiles and two Fairey 'Firestorm' infra-red heat-seeking missiles the Voodoo FAW.4's were a quantum leap in performance over the Javelins and remained a popular type in RAF service right up until their retirement in 1981.
1. From the Aircraft folder drag and drop the VOODOO_FAW4 folder into your Aircraft folder.
2. From the Weapons folder drag and drop the 'AIM-4K' and 'SKYSTORM' folders to your Weapons folder.
3. Sprinkle the contents of the Decals folder into your main Decals folder.
BIG THANKS to TK for the continuous improvement of a great little game/sim.
Special thanks to the legend that is erikgen for producing the Voodoo in all its variants and to Column5 for the FM.
Thanks also to the creators of the Genie and Falcon missiles that I've tweaked and rebadged (just for a giggle).
And, finally, thanks to everyone in the wider Third Wire community.
