About This File

Strike Fighters 2: North Atlantic

- The RSR Edition

 

This is an add-on package for the "Strike Fighters 2: North Atlantic" (SF2NA) Expansion Pack available at CombatAce. The "SF2NA: RSR Edition" (SF2NA-RSR) add-on offers a new campaign that is markedly different from the default "Northern Sabre" campaign that ships with SF2NA as well as fourteen stand-alone missions that can be flown independently of the campaign. Also included are eleven new aircraft and a four new ground objects to fill out the campaign and missions. Please note that while the campaign and missions are inspired by a certain popular novel from the 1980's, they are not designed to faithfully re-create down to the last detail episodes from that book.

 

This add-on package is designed to be applied over the top of an existing installation of the SF2NA Expansion Pack. You can download the three main Expansion Pack files here:

Requirements

~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

The minimum requirements for this add-on package are the same as for the SF2NA Expansion Pack.

 

REQUIRED: Strike Fighters 2 North Atlantic (SFNA), plus

Strike Fighters 2 (SF2), plus

Strike Fighters 2 Europe (SF2E), plus

Strike Fighters 2 Vietnam (SF2V)

 

PATCH LEVEL: Mar2012 or higher

 

As this mod is an add-on to the SF2NA Expansion Pack, you must have that earlier mod already installed and working.

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~

Installation

~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

Here's how to install this add-on package:

 

1. Ensure that SF2NA, SF2V, SF2, and SF2E are all properly installed & updated as part of a

merged install.

 

2. Ensure that the SF2NA Expansion Pack is properly installed and working. (See above for

links to all the download components.)

 

3. Unpack SF2NA_RSR.7z to a safe place on your drive.

 

4. Open the \To_Mod_Folder directory. Drag and drop all the files and folders from within

the \To_Mod_Folder sub-folder to your SF2NA Expansion Pack Mod Folder, overwriting as

prompted.

 

At this point the SF2NA-RSR add-on is installed and you're ready to play the new campaign.

 

For information on the individual missions that are also included as well as some optional items that you can install, please see the following two sections.

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Optional Items

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

This add-on package includes files to support the use of Gerwin's alternate IcelandNA terrain as well as Baltika's Iceland02 terrain. These optional files are contained in the \_Optional directory.

 

\_Optional\Baltika:

 

This directory contains files to update the version of Baltika's Iceland02 terrain that is included in the SF2NA Expansion Pack (also as an Optional install). It also contains a custom version of the new campaign for use with Baltika's terrain.

 

To use these updated optional files you must install Baltika's Iceland02 as directed in the SF2NA Expansion Pack documentation for that terrain as well as the updates for it included in the SF2NA Expansion Pack.

 

Once the terrain and original updates are installed, you can install the additional updates for the terrain included in this directory. You can also install the alternate version of the new campaign (which will overwrite the standard version of the new campaign that works on the IcelandNA terrain).

 

\_Optional\Gerwin:

 

This directory contains files to update Gerwin's alternate IcelandNA terrain, which is included in the SF2NA Expansion Pack. To use these updated files you must have Gerwin's terrain installed as instructed in the documentation for the SF2NA Expansion Pack.

 

To use Gerwin's alternate terrain with the new campaign, you will need to edit the new campaign's main .INI in the same way you did the campaigns included in the SF2NA Expansion Pack. See Step 7 of the installation instructions for Gerwin's alternate terrain in the SF2NA Expansion Pack.

Summary of New Campaign

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

This add-on supplies a new campaign set in June 1986 for the SF2NA Expansion Pack. This campaign is markedly different from the stock "Northern Sabre" campaign in that the Soviets control all of Iceland at the start of the campaign.

 

A large USN/USMC naval convoy approaches from the southwest to re-take the island from the Soviet forces entrenched on the island. That convoy consists of two carrier groups (led the Independence & the America), two amphibious groups (led by the Tarawa & Peleliu), and a naval gunfire support group (anchored by the USS Iowa & USS New Jersey). USAF, USN, and RAF aircraft based in Scotland fly from off-map air bases in support of the convoy.

 

The first few days of the campaign are spent striking Soviet targets on the island, fending off Soviet long range recon aircraft searching for the naval convoy, and searching for Soviet naval units thought to be moving towards Iceland. The Marines land at two points near Mt. Snaefllsjokull on the western side of the island north of Reykjavik.

 

The new campaign appears in the campaign list as: 1986-0618 Northern Sabre (RSR).

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Individual Missions

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

As noted earlier, this add-on includes fourteen missions that can be flown independently of the campaign. These missions are located in the \_Missions directory. For instructions on how to install and play the individual missions, please see the ReadMe for the missions included there.
