Warning! This mod includes 4096x skins and hi-rez decals. Please backup and restore the backup if you have performance issues with these skins.




You will the need FastCargo's F-15 Super Pack for these skins to work. You can look for it in the Add-on Aircraft section of CombatAce or you can try this link...




Credits: Fastcargo, James Fox, Wrench, USAFMTL et all for the EXCELLENT mods in CombatAce!




This mod contains updated F-15C and Silent Eagle skins for the 48th FW, RAF Lakenheath UK. The 493rd squadron and some variations of their paint schemes. The variations included are Dazzle Eagle (Dazzle), Blue Eagle (Aggressor), SEA Eagle (SouthEast Asia), and many other skins. Also included in this mod are all new decals that span the complete (as far I can tell from my research) serial numbers of the 493rd Fighter Squadron. This mod will replace and add/or some new skins so back up!




To Install, Uncompress the zip file and copy the contents of the uncompressed "To_Mod_Folder" folder into your Saved Game mod folder. Overwrite any conflicts.


Thats it! Enjoy!

Thanks all, I just uploaded v3. In version 3 03/03/2016..I replaced or tweaked almost everything.


All the skins were upgraded to 4096x, so it's very detailed but large for SF2. So I also included the 2048x skins in the "Optional" folder in case the 4096x skins were too much for your computer. My favorite is the lighter F-15C Ghost Rider! It has a lighter (DCS style) paint job. I updated the one on version 2. Still the same plane, but with better resolution. 


I replaced or created ALL new decals, including accurate (as best as I could via internet research) tail numbers for every plane in the squadron!


The placement of the decals have changed some, the main ones being the Wing and Squadron decals. I found that if I placed them where they were suppose to be (as in Version 2), the decal bled thru to the other side and underneath the plane. Took me a long time, trial and error, to place them so they are near the correct locations without bleeding under the plane. They are smaller and less visible, but they don't create the weird smug of color or shapes under the plane.


Thanks and enjoy!

I added the F-15SE (Silent Eagles) to this pack. Those are the F-15s with the cranked vert tails...I don't have any pix of them here (lazy/tired), but they are in this pack starting from V4.


Thanks and enjoy!
