NATO Fighters IV+: Post-Dec2009 Update Pack # 3 The French Connection (as ebruger68 calls it)

-----------------------------------------------

 

This package contains a third update pack for the NATO Fighters IV+ (NF4+) add-on designed for "Strike Fighters 2: Europe" (SF2E) from ThirdWire. It does several things:

 

1) Adds a number of new aircraft and ground objects.

 

2) Makes several aircraft flyable

 

3) Adds several new textures to existing aircraft.

 

4) Adds or updates over 100 weapons and guns.

 

5) Fixes or updates numerous other files in the

original NF4+ mod.

 

This update pack should be applied to SF2E/NF4+ installations that are patched to the Dec2009 or later patch level -- including Feb2010, Mar2010, May2010, or Jun2010 -- and that already have the first and second update packs applied.

 

If you are running SF2E at the Jun2009b patch level and do NOT intend to update to one of the later patch levels mentioned above, you should NOT apply this update pack.
