MiG-17PF 'Fuerza Aérea Argentina' for STRIKE FIGHTERS 2

This is a very simple mod of the stock MiG-17PF to give a fictional export version for the Fuerza Aérea Argentina with markings for Grupo 6 De Caza.


The Argentinian elections of 1958 saw Arturo Frondizi become President and with some support from Peron's followers to introduced various policies to encourage investment and make the country self-sufficient in energy and industry. One major issue was Argentina's chronic trade deficit and in early 1960 Frondizi cancelled the order for 28 refurbished F-86F Sabres on cost grounds and announced the procurement of 36 MiG-17PF interceptors from the Soviet Union for an undisclosed sum "to be funded solely by beef exports". Entering service with Grupo 6 De Caza in 1961 and armed with the indigenous 'Espada' radar-guided air-to-air missile the MiG-17PF's served in frontline service until 1979 and thus played no part in the 1982 Falklands/Malvinas conflict but did remain on reserve status until 1983. 


1. From the AIRCRAFT folder drag and drop the MiG-17PF_FAA folder into your Aircraft folder.

2. From the DECALS folder drag and drop the MiG-17PF_FAA folder into your Decals folder.

3. From the WEAPONS folder drag and drop the TANK400_MIG17_FAA folder into your Weapons folder.


As always, thanks to Third Wire for a great little game/sim.

And, finally, thanks to everyone in the wider Third Wire community.
