North American F-100G for STRIKE FIGHTERS 2

 

This is a very simple mod of the stock Third Wire F-100D to create a fictional F-100G for extended service with ANG units into the 1980's. Two units are included;

 

The 125th TFS of the Oklahoma ANG.

 

The 131st TFS of the Massachusetts ANG.

 

Both units are dressed in a 'Euro One' style scheme on the upper surfaces only and with toned down national markings, codes and serials using late model F-100D serials. An additional stock T.O. 1-1-4 Camo skin for the 125th TFS is included in case they get deployed to Dhimar...

 

 

BACKSTORY

 

President James Earl 'Jimmy' Carter started his presidency in January 1977 with a detailed review of the US military budget and his most high-profile decision was the cancellation of the Rockwell B-1A bomber programme in June 1977. But many smaller programmes were cut or cancelled too along with the postponement of the re-equipping of TAC and ANG units with new aircraft types. F-16A and A-10A production was slowed down and many TAC and ANG units were instructed to hold on to their F-100's and F-105's for an indefinate period. In a genuine (but actually insulting) compensatory gesture Rockwell were given a $45million contract to upgrade 90 F-100D's for continued service with the ANG with the aircraft emerging from their Columbus, Ohio plant as F-100G's with refurbished engines, partially re-skinned wings and minor avionics upgrades.

 

The first unit to receive F-100G's was the 131st Tactical Fighter Squadron based at Barnes Municipal Airport in Westfield, Massachusetts who had been scheduled to convert from the F-100D to A-10A's but instead received F-100G's which served until 1986.
