Sud-Ouest Farandole II for STRIKE FIGHTERS 2
This is a simple mod of the stock Third Wire MiG-15bis masquerading as a fictional Sud-Ouest competitor and rival to the Dassault Mystere IIC. Naturally, you will need the Strike Fighters 2 Expansion Pack One as it contains the MiG-15bis and also the Mystere IV pit.
When the straight-wing Sud-Ouest Farandole I lost out to the Dassault Ouragan they quickly schemed an improved swept-wing version known as the Farandole II utilising the same Hispano-Suiza Nene 104B engine. Working at speed the Sud-Ouest team flew the first prototype in October 1950 and the scintillating performance soon attracted the Armee de l'Air who ordered 150 production aircraft almost immediately (leading to the cancellation of the Dassault Mystere IIC). Entering service in November 1952 the Farandole II soon became considered as an interim type (as Dassault had got his own back by getting the Mystere IV selected by the US Government for off-shore procurement) but served until 1960 with the Armee de l'Air and
until 1974 with the Heyl Ha'Avir of Israel (the only export customer).
1. From the AIRCRAFT folder drag and drop the Farandole_II folder into your Aircraft folder.
2. From the DECALS folder sprinkle the contents into your main Decals folder.
3. From the WEAPONS folder move the FARANDOLE_TANK folder into your Weapons folder.
Please note that this mod uses the Mystere IV cockpit as it is single-enginned and French.
BIG THANKS to TK for the continuous improvement of a great little game/sim.
And, finally, thanks to everyone in the wider Third Wire community.
