CF-110M Phantom II for the Royal Canadian Air Force
This is a reskinning and ini edit of TK's F-4M Phantom II from SF2: Europe.
Two skins are provided, a South East Asia skin for hypothetical Canadian participation in the Vietnam War, and an Aerospace Defence Command Grey skin for NORAD service.
The idea for this aircraft comes from my alternate history site. It was first operated by this alternate Royal Canadian Air Force in 1969 (in this timeline, there was no unification in the Canadian Armed Forces)
The RCAF originally did not want the Phantom, being content to stick with the Thunderchief and the Voodoo until the TFX (CF-111C) and FX (CF-15) were ready during the 1970s.
Canadian participation in the Vietnam War changed that. Canada committed Voodoos to defend the social democratic North Vietnam from Nazi German forces operating from the South and from Burma. The CF-101's inability to dogfight, and unreliability in the harsh tropical conditions of North Vietnam made early replacement necessary. The only aircraft available was the CF-4K, being introduced to the RCN as its strike fighter. McDonnell and Avro Canada devised a land-based version with minimal changes. This entered service in 1969 and quickly went to Vietnam. After the war ended in 1975, the Phantom replaced the Voodoo entirely in the RCAF.

In the Decals/F-4M_RCAF folder, you will find four files named "SQN402.tga", "SQN403.tga", "SQN404.tga", and "SQN405.tga". You will need to change the numbers in these names to correspond to the numbers in your squadronlist.ini
