About This File

Socotra 1.0

This terrain is written for SF2NA and SF2 Israel.


I. Short description:

Socotra is a relativly big island on the shores of the Horn of Africa. It belongs to Yemen.
Socotra is an ideal position to control all shipping lines between the Mediterranian Sea and the Indian Ocean.
The power who controls Socotra can easily block the oil support from the Gulf to Western Europe.
Socotra is the cork in the bottle neck, like Djibouti, the Suez Canal or Gibraltar.
From mid 1960th to the fall of the Soviet Union, the soviets had an airbase on Socotra. In the 1980th on the base one regiment (squadron) of Su-24 bombers was active on Socotra.

This terrain is made for a scenario that the Americans must defeat the soviet forces on Socotra island. They had to operate from carrier positions in the Gulf of Aden. For all guys who love to fly Air Force planes i made a temporary american airfield in Somalia.

In the timeframe, where the soviets have no own carriers the single missions are focused on Socotra island. When the soviets field carriers the terrain is mostly focused on carrier vs carrier battles. So, if you prefer carrier vs ground battles you must choose missions before 1976. After that date you will have to fight Kiev carrier battle groups.




To run this terrain you need SF2NorthAtlantic and SF2 Israel or SF2 Europe.

Unzip all files into your saved game folder ...ThirdWire\StrikeFighters2XXXX

If you have SF2Israel installed you must do nothing more.
If you miss SF2I and have SF2Europe you must open file
