Ace Combat Nations
December 13th, 2020 (1st Release)
>For Strike Fighters 2 games
This mod is a fork of my nations expansion mod of the stock ThirdWire _nations.ini file. It includes only the nations and respective aviation services of the Ace Combat universe, AKA Strangereal. All roundels are based on official sources and references from all Ace Combat games. Here below a summary of the included services:
-Generic Mercenary faction, using the logo of Ace Combat's developer, Project ACES, as insignia.
-Osean Air Defense Force and Osean Maritime Defense Force (as seen in Ace Combat 5, Ace Combat Zero and Ace Combat 7).
-Yuktobanian Air Force and Yuktobanian Navy (as seen in Ace Combat 5).
-Erusean Air Force and Erusean Navy (as seen in Ace Combat 04 and Ace Combat 7).
-Free Erusea Air Force (available since 2006, as seen in Ace Combat 04, Ace Combat 5 and Ace Combat 7).
-Independent State Allied Forces Air Force and Independent State Allied Forces Navy (available since 2003 until 2006, as seen in Ace Combat 04 and Ace Combat 5).
-International Union Peacekeeping Force (available since 2007, as seen in Ace Combat 7).
-Belkan Air Force and Belkan Naval Aviation (as seen in Ace Combat 5 and Ace Combat Zero).
-Ustio Air Force (available since 1989, as seen in Ace Combat Zero).
-Sapin Air Force (as seen in Ace Combat Zero).
-Republic of Emmeria Air Force and Republic of Emmeria Navy (as seen in Ace Combat 6).
-Estovakian Air Force and Estovakian Naval Aviation (as seen in Ace Combat 6).

-USEA Unified Air Force and USEA Unified Navy (available since 1996 until 2002, as seen in the remake of Ace Combat 2, that is Ace Combat 3D).
-Voslage Air Force (as seen in Ace Combat 7).
-Nordennavic Royal Air Force (from Ace Combat: Northern Wings).
Other aviation services are known to exist in Strangereal, such as the Rectan Air Force, FATO Air Force and Valka Royal Air Force. However, there are no infos concerning such countries with no established flag and culture at the moment. Those are not included in the mod for the time being.
This mod removes the Real World aviation services included in Strike Fighters 2, as such it is not compatible with any mod out of the box. Modders and users are advised to tweak _userlist.ini files and _data.ini files for aircraft and ground objects, to make use of the new services added by this mod.
