McDonnell Douglas A-4K Skyhawk 'BAF' for STRIKE FIGHTERS 2
This is a very simple mod of the stock Third Wire DLC A-4K to give a fictional Belgian A-4K with markings for No.1, No.2 and No.42 squadrons of the Belgian Air Force with service years ranging from 1970 to 1991. If you haven't actually got the A-4K DLC you'll quickly be able to hack the contents to suit whatever you've got available to you. Please note that for simplicity (i.e. laziness) I've used the stock Mirage 5BA serial numbers.
In early February 1968 the outgoing Belgian Paul Van den Boeynants announced that the Dassault Mirage 5 was to be purchased as the desperately needed Thunderstreak replacement for the Belgian Air Force. However, within days, massive student unrest and questions of discrimination against the ethnic Flemish population led to the bringing down of the Van den Boeynants government and a new incoming government led by Gaston Eyskens. The new government immediately cancelled the order for the Mirage 5BA and instead purchased the American A-4K Skyhawk in a reduced purchase of 48 A-4K single-seaters and 12 TA-4K two-seat trainers.
