Dhimari Air Force F-4F Phantom II For SF2 Full 5-merged(or at minimum SF2 and SF2:E)
Just before the start of Desert Fury 2 in 1981,extremists in Dhimar tried to bring about a political as well as a religious revolution.The revolution was easily put down due to a lack of support by the local population.However,the idea of the revolution had indoctrinated Dhimari military leaders and senior officers as they would have greater freedom than they could ever imagine,if the revolution had succeeded.Immediately after the end of Operation Desert Fury 2,the Dhimari Monarch ordered a reshuffling of his military's command structure.However,the problem was found to be so widespread that this did not yield any significant results.This was proven just two months later when three high ranking generals were found to be plotting a coup to overthrow the Monarch and his government.The United States,Dhimars largest supplier of military hardware,was now facing a crisis.The United States could go with Two options:
A)Assassination and/or abduction of all radical military as well as civilian elements.This option would cause a political fallout and the revolution,could begin again and reach it's conclusion,as a possible consequence.
B)Control all military Aid to Dhimar and deploy US ARMY Psychological operations elements to change the mindset of ther Populace.This option,though a less effective one could control the situation in the long run.
President Ronald Reagen and his administration were divided on which option to take.However,Ronald Reagen gave the order to hold any decision until his direct permission was given.
Paran's independence as well as National day.On this day the local populace were to be treated to a parade and an aerial display by the Parani Air Force's Display team made up of MirageIIIP aircraft left over from the war.Exactly 11 minutes after take off,the flight of mirages went into formation to perform 'The Piercing Heart'.As the aircraft were pulling down,three of them were struck by AIM-7F Sparrow Radar Guided Missles fired at long range by Dhimari F-4E and F-4D aircraft.This caused a chain reaction of events.The destroyed aircraft collided with other aircraft in the formation,causing more crashes and some of the debris fell on the ground parade.The total death toll numbered 70(13 pilots,10 civilians and 47 Troops involved in the parade).
This was the biggest violation of peace after the war.The paranis,still suffering from the after effects of the war were unable to retaliate.For them,this was a day of Tragedy and sorrow.A month of mourning for the Paranis was announced by their government.Sadly,they also were unable to recover the remains of one of their pilots whose Mirages had fallen near the Dhimar-Paran Border and were now in possession of the Dhimari Army.
After the news of the attack had gone worldwide,the Reagen administration had made up it's mind and had decided on plan A.However,Ronald Reagen,knowing that such action could accelerate to a full scale war, gave the order to deploy the US Army's 101st and the Rangers to Dhimar to take control of all their main Airbases.This force would be further assisted by a US Marines MEU(Marine Expeditionary Unit) for their infiltration into Dhimar.
Elements of the US Army's Rangers and the Marines,stationed in Kuwait and Saudi Arabia were ready to leave for the States.Suddenly,they were given the drill command and after everything was ready,were briefed on their new assignment.
The Marines were to enter Dhimar through the coast while the 101st was to be deployed by 3 MC-130P cargo/transport Aircraft.The invasion was a success with only 12 casualties,a Dhimari tank team which refused to surrender.The Monarch,whose palace had been under siege for the past 5 hours was now free.On his command,the traitors were executed,publicly.
The United States now initiated a plan to control Dhimar's military aid.The US Army set up a base where a Psyops Battalion was stationed.US pilots were flown to Dhimar from where they flew most of the Dhimari Phantoms to the AMARC at Davis Monthan-Airforce Base in Arizona.These Phantoms would be assigned to Air National Guard Squadrons while a select few were to be Converted to The advanced F-4GE Wild Weasel.
Now,the United States needed a new aircraft to allow Dhimar air defence capabilities only inside it's own borders.Since Dhimar was under sanction by many European nations,it could not get a new aircraft type.Germany,which was in the process of replacing her fleet of Phantoms with the Tornado F3 offered to donate two squadrons of stripped watered down F-4Fs.These Phantoms could only be armed with short range AIM-9 sidewinder missiles and a single ALQ-101 ECM pod.This aircraft was the ideal replacement to keep Dhimar under control and to prevent any other violations such as the one on 18 September 1983.
The problem of the rogue Dhimari military may be over but,the mindset of the populace is still at large.
