      Built with the extraordinary expertise and dedication of modders from CombatACE.com, Operation Desert Storm – 30th Anniversary Edition promises to be the most complete total conversion ever made for Strike Fighters 2 by ThirdWire.

      Fly with more than 50 aircraft ranging from Cold War relics to the most advanced platforms. Gain air superiority in the mighty F-15C Eagle or challenge the Coalition with the agile Fulcrum. Support troops with the A-10A Thunderbolt II, bomb strategic targets with the stealthy F-117A Nighthawk, lead airfield denial operations in the iconic Tornado.

      Enjoy a beautifully rendered scenario on a scaled and accurate terrain. Fly over the lakes and rivers of Mesopotamia, the oil-rich fields of Kuwait, the mountains of Iran and Turkey. Take-off from aircraft carriers stationed in the Persian Gulf to watch over Kuwaiti oil rigs. Perform landings and patrols in more than 90 airports and air bases in the Middle East.

      Take part in different campaigns including the Iraqi blitzkrieg on Kuwait and the US-led liberation of the Kuwaiti Emirate. Discover how the Iraqi Army was one of the biggest in the world, through the eyes of American, British, Canadian, French, Italian and Arab pilots. Test your skills and abilities flying for the Iraqi Air Force during all stages of the conflict.

      Thirty years after, Operation Desert Storm still remains the largest air operation of modern warfare to date. Modders and flight sim enthusiasts at CombatACE teamed up to bring you a unique product in the lite flight sim world. Exquisitely detailed aircraft and paint schemes are delivered in a well-researched and thorough order of battle.

      January 13th, 2019 (1st Release)
      by Menrva

      >For Strike Fighters 2 games
      This is my sky enhancement mod. It also combines the work of many other modders, to provide a realistic, better-looking sky. Here below a quick summary of the changes:
      -Tweaked sky colors, something in between Cellinsky's wide sky and the stock SF2 colors
      -More realistic Night colors, sky and ambient are much darker
      -More atmospheric, reddish transition from Twilight to Night
      -New "dark blue" High Altitude colors (fly near space with a NF-104)
      -Moon produces a yellowish light instead of the default purple
      -Sky is "wider" much like Cellinsky's widesky mod (background horizon clouds are bigger and more noticeable)
      -Added beautiful cloud graphics made by Cellinsky and ShrikeHawk, tweaked for each weather type
      -Added a small number of stray clouds to Clear weather
      -Added noticeable clouds to Overcast weather and Inclement weather, "fixing" a known SF2 "bug"
      -Combined various mods to produce a more interesting Rain Effect under Inclement weather
      -Added Stary's lens flare effects from the SARCASM 2 mod, in place of Cellinsky's wide sky effects
      -Added Cloud Layer graphics by Stary, Fubar512 and Brain32
      -Reworked secondary atmospheric effects, such as contrails and wingtip vortexes

      In addition, the package includes alternative environment configuration files in the Alternative Weather folder; they enable different effects for the Inclement weather. You can choose between thunderstorms (default, adapt for most terrains), snowstorms (for cold, icy terrains) and sandstorms (for hot, desert terrains)
      For those who wish not to change the effect globally, I highly suggest trying the included terrain-specific environment files, provided for both stock terrains and custom ones I released; the default global effect is thunderstorm, while terrains with their own environment file either use sandstorm or snowstorm as appropriate. Use this as a basis to customize other terrains
