Carrier Missions Pack (SFP1/SFG/WOE) V2.10


Carrier Missions and Training Pack for SFP1/SFG

Welcome to the ‘Pack’ for Strike Fighters Project 1(SFP1)/Strike Fighters Gold(SFG)*, which provides basic carrier training and operations missions using (mostly) stock aircraft.

 

*Although only tested in SFP1/SFG, it has been reported to me that these missions and the Libyan terrain work equally well in Wings Over Europe (WOE).

 

Updated to V2.00

This mission pack has had a major update.

1. Re-vamped US fleet to be defined as types and also targets, to greatly simplify mission file contents and make it quicker to load missions.

2. Re-wrote ReadMe to point at currently available ships from the A-team - ReadMe is now also in HTML to make it easier to link to all pre-reqs.

3. Renamed mission files to make it easier to distinguish between carrier training (CT) and carrier operations (CO) missions.

 

Updated v2.10

This mod has been updated on request to remove direct links to any Capun and A-team prerequisite models. Instead, please contact Capun for access - details enclosed.

 

Acknowledgements & Disclaimer

Thank you to all those modders that have provided the prerequisites I have used in my mission packs. If there are any problems with these missions and my own mods, then please contact me directly, not the authors of the prerequisites. Many thanks.

 

Missions Included in this Pack

This Mission Pack contains 16 missions per Stock SFP1/SFG aircraft and a few specialist missions for the A-5A. That's over 100 training and operations missions in total!

 

The stock aircraft provided for are: A-4B, A-4C, A-4F, F-4B and F-4J.

 

The Mission Pack also includes bonus missions written as a special request for the A-5A that include a long-range low-level Nuclear strike mission.

 

The naming conventions used for each mission are described as follows:

 

Stock Aircraft (using A-4B as example):

 

CT-LB A-4B© = Carrier Training Mission (simple take-off, circuit, land), Libya Terrain (CTF-60 6th Fleet in the Mediterranean), A-4B aircraft, Daylight, in good clear weather, Mission time is ~20 minutes

CT-LB A-4B(CN) = As above but at night*

CT-LB A-4B(CBW) = As above but in bad weather** (low thick cloud, rain)

CT-LB A-4B(CBWN) = As above but in bad weather at night

 

CT-LB A-4B® = Refueling mission with KA-6D Intruder, RV with tanker, fly a long circuit and then land, Daylight with good clear weather, Mission time is ~30 minutes

CT-LB A-4B(RN) = As above but at night

CT-LB A-4B(RBW) = As above but in bad weather

CT-LB A-4B(RBWN) = As above but in bad weather at night

 

CO-LB A-4B(AS) = Carrier Operations - Anti-ship mission, Scramble to meet incoming enemy patrol boats, Daylight (dawn) in good clear weather, Mission time is ~20 minutes

CO-LB A-4B(ASBW) = As above but in bad weather

CO-LB A-4B(AS2) = As above but fly as part of the 2nd flight, Attack similar targets approaching from a different direction

CO-LB A-4B(ASBW2) = As above but in bad weather

 

CO-LB A-4B(I) = Carrier Operations - Intercept, Scramble to intercept enemy Migs approaching the fleet, Daylight (dawn) in good clear weather, Mission time is ~20 minutes

CO-LB A-4B(IBW) = As above but in bad weather

CO-LB A-4B(I2) = As above but fly as part of the 2nd flight, Attack similar targets approaching from a different direction

CO-LB A-4B(IBW2) = As above but in bad weather

 

A-5A Bonus Missions (including Nuclear Strike Mission):

 

CT-LB A-5A© = Carrier Training Mission (simple take-off, circuit, land), Libya Terrain, A-5A aircraft, Daylight, in good clear weather, Mission time is ~20 minutes

CT-LB A-5A(CN) = As above but at night, in good clear weather

CT-LB A-5A(CBW) = As above but daylight in bad weather (low cloud, rain)

CT-LB A-5A(CBWN) = As above but at night in bad weather (low cloud, rain)

 

CO-LB A-5A(S) = Carrier Operations, Strike mission deep into Libyan territory. Knock out a Nuclear weapons research site, Daylight in good clear weather, Mission time is ~2.5 hours

...Watch out for multiple SAMS and AAA en route – stay low and fast

...Watch your fuel supply – avoid using AB - you'll be on vapours on final approach!

CO-LB A-5A(SN) = As above but at night. (Landing is just after dawn)

CO-LB A-5A(SBW) = As above but in daylight in bad weather

CO-LB A-5A(SBWN) = As above but at night in bad weather

 

*Night is depicted by just before dawn (~05:00) so that landings are in twilight (because the fleet is not illuminated in Stock SF and I wanted to make it at least possible to have some idea where to land after the mission is complete).

 

**Bad weather is depicted by heavy low cloud and rain.

 

Read the enclosed Mission Briefing .jpgs for more details about each operations and refuelling mission.

 

Waypoints are provided to guide you to the tanker or target, then onto approach and home, landing back on the carrier.

 

Pre-requisites are listed in the README, together with installation instructions.

As always, great. Thanks

Any chance to do something like the raid over lybia in 1986?

Hi Canadair, yes, sure. I'll add it to my list - will take a while though I expect, my in-tray is filling up with mission requests ;-)

 

I'll read up on it to get the story right. In fact I remember it well as I was working up near Lakenheath (UK) at the time when the F-111s went in from there. It was a pretty tense time around the base during that week in April '86.

 

Cheers, regards, comrpnt.

Don't forget the Frogs required US strike pak to fly some 11 hours overwater around France instead of allowing overflight which would have made the flight some 4 hours shorter. That political decision cost us a brave F-111 team that hit the water on low-level egress from Libya. Can't tell me that fatigue was not part of that mishap. At the time I was on Attache duty in Brazil and the French Air Attache at the time, a good man in a Frog outfit, apologized to me for his country's actions, off the record. I told him in my best diplomatic manner, that, on the record, his country could kiss my red, white, and blue buttocks........not a very good diplomat was I?

very, very nice.

 

works well in WOE.

 

I don't think in reality we ever took the carrier quite that far south...........

 

I've been playing with a few mission sets in that area based on stuff that "could have" (almost) happened around that time frame. I'll stay away from the '86 events and stick with some missions loosely based around 88 on for both there and the Bekka Valley "almost invitational".

Hi Typhoid, thanks for the feedback. You know, I never thought to try it out as an alternative terrain for WOE (doh!). Sometimes these things need another perspective in order to see their potential. Much appreciated :-)

 

I've got a good write-up for Operation El Dorado Canyon so will put something together soon - everything I think I need is out there, just need to bring it all together for the 14th/15th April '86.

 

Cheers, regards, comrpnt.

The missions seem to work great, just two questions, guys:

I put all the .msn files in missions folder, but only the Viggie's missions show up in the selection screen....Why???

And....Where do I have to place the mission briefings??? I can't find the briefings folder anyway, so I guess I shall create one..but where do I place it???

Thanks in advance!

Hi there Hide86, the missions show up for all those aircraft you have installed in your game, so for example, in SFP1/SFG you'll see just the one's you have in the objects/aircraft folder. In WOE you'll see a lot less as it doesn't come with any carrier-based aircraft.

 

Go to here (http://www.column5.us/aircraft.shtml) or here (http://forum.combatace.com/index.php?autoc...&showcat=23) to add aircraft that match the other missions you want to try.

 

In most cases I tended to use Stock carrier-based aircraft if they were available in the game already and their supplied skins. If you change the missions to use variants of the Stock aircraft I used (e.g add another variant of, say, the A-4E) then you'll need to edit the mission to use the new skins that come with that variant.

 

As for mission briefings, the game does not support them in-game. Read them before-hand (or Alt-Tab to go back to the desktop to read them). I put my Mission Briefings folder in the main game's folder (i.e SFP1/Mission Briefings) to keep them close to the game to which they're associated.

 

Hope this info helps. Let me know if you're still having problems.

 

Kind regards, comrpnt. :-)

I'll try to get the a/c I need ASAP, thank you so much for the tips!

Incidentally, if you wait a couple of weeks I should have finished a WOE-specific set of missions with carrier support that uses only add-on carrier-based aircraft (as WOE doesn't come with any by default). So, the missions will therefore be set to use just those addon aircraft already. So far it looks like there will be the option of flying the A-6E, EA-6A and FA-18A from the carriers, then F-111F, Harrier GR3 (Stock), A-10A (Stock), F-4C Wild Weasel IV (and probably a few others) from the mainland. Read parts of 'Red Storm Rising' if you want an idea what's coming (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Red_Storm_Rising).

 

Like I said, if you're a WOE user then this should give you plenty to play with. The next mission Pack will be posted here as usual.

 

Regards, comrpnt.

All right, I managed to grab my old WoV CD and import all the A-4s and F-4s, plus the VietnamSEA terrain, now the mission pack works like a swiss clock, great addon, mate!

I even got to feel the adrenaline pumping in route for the Paul Doumer Bridge with the FOTI A-6A, YEEEEEEEEHAAAAAAAAA

SO GO DOWNTOOOOOWN!!!!!!!!!!!

Thank you again!

Cheers!

I have a problem with the pack: I can't take-off properly from the CV-59 carrier with any aircraft.

At the beginning of each mission the aircraft simply crashes into the sea,falling down from the carrier (as if the carrier wasn't there!). I can see the carrier but the aircraft falls as if the carrier is invisible.

I use SFG with the latest pack (nov 08).

Thank you for any help.

:rofl::rofl::rofl:

 

This is why you need to have several versions of the game, each patched to a different Service Pack. That way you can play the mods you want without all the hassles of using a Service Pack that is incompatable with what you want to do.
