BAC Lightning F.Mk 52 for STRIKE FIGHTERS 2 (EP2)
This is a very simple mod of the stock Third Wire BAC Lightning F.2 to make the little-known F.Mk 52 version that was exported to Saudi Arabia as part of 'Operation Magic Palm' an early UK supplied defence package that also saw the supply of Lightning T.Mk 54 trainers, Hawker Hunters and Thunderbird SAM's. Four F.Mk 2's were withdrawn from RAF stocks and were refurbished at BAC Warton to F.Mk 52's before being delivered to the Royal Saudi Air Force in 1966 with a fifth F.Mk 52 joining them in 1967. Rather confusingly, four of these five aircraft were re-serialled so there are nine serial numbers included here.
1. From the AIRCRAFT folder drag and drop the Lightning52 folder into your Aircraft folder.
2. From the DECALS folder drag and drop the Lightning52 folder into your main Decals folder.
3. From the SOUNDS folder drag and drop the Avon_Dry and Avon_Wet files into your main Sounds folder.
Thanks to Third Wire for the continuous improvement of a great little game/sim.
And thanks to everyone in the wider Third Wire community.
