Hawker Hunter FGA.9B for STRIKE FIGHTERS 2
This is a very simple mod of the Third Wire Hawker Hunter FGA.73 (a DLC) to give a fictional Hawker Hunter FGA.9B fighter-bomber aircraft as it might have appeared in service with the Royal Air Force during the 1972-1979 timeline with the tactical markings of that era. No.45 and No.58 Squadrons actually did operate a mix of Hunter F.6's and FGA.9's during the early-mid 1970's so I've used these two squadrons but given them a slightly more advanced 'six pylon' version of the Hunter and with scabbed-on countermeasures. Also included (as a request) is a SEAC skin with markings for No.28 Squadron who operated Hunters out in the Far East during the 1960's.
1. From the AIRCRAFT folder drag and drop the HunterFGA9B folder into your Aircraft folder.
2. From the DECALS folder drag and drop the HunterFGA9B folder into your Decals folder.
3. From the WEAPONS folder drag and drop the AIM-9K folder into your Decals folder.
The AIM-9K is a fictional UK version of the AIM-9G simply created to enable you to carry four Sidewinders without also opening up those pylons to the full range of NATO weapons as I wanted to keep the weapons UK only.
As always, big thanks to Third Wire for creating a great little game/sim.
Special thanks to ndicki for his superb Hunter templates that helped me to create the 'SEAC' scheme.
And, finally, thanks to everyone in the wider Third Wire community.
