SF2: Europe Expansion 2 Campaign Flyable Aircraft tweak 1.1 (NATO)

Recommended Posts

SF2: Europe Expansion 2 Campaign Flyable Aircraft tweak 1.1 (NATO)

Just unzip into your merged Strike Fighters 2 Folder.

You need SF2: Israel Exp 1 for this to work.

Only tested on fully Merged Installation.


I also very much recommend Soulfreaks F-84 Mega Skin Update Pack:


I have not tested this mod without using it, and using it would be a great thing for you to do. Trust me :)


You have to make the aircraft flyable by yourself. To do this, simply copy the line:


into the .ini of the Aircraft you wish to make flyable.

For the Spitfires, I recommend using the P-51D Cockpit:



Contains the Campaign fix for the F-100A Super Sabre.

Warsaw Pact Air Force now also operates a few Squadrons of Spitfires,

used as standins for Soviet Props.


Added Aircraft (All are Flyable in Campaign with abovementioned modification)


USAF: F-84F, P-51D

RAF: Canberra, Spitfire9e, Spitfire 9c, Vampire9

France: F-84F, P-51D

Denmark: Hunter 5, Meteor8

Luftwaffe: F-84F

Netherlands: F-84F, Meteor8, Hunter4

Belgium: F-84F, Meteor8


My Tributes to the NATO Fighters & Mirage Factory teams.


Thanks to:


Its his toys, I only changed their places in the Toybox!



I was no fan of the F-84F, but you converted me in a New York Minute :)

until 1959, the ranks were RAF's style

the F-84F had a Fighter-Bomber role but it's not until 1960 that a nuclear QRA were planned.

From June 1956, all planes were painted to NATO standard and their Sqn code were painted in white on the nose.

Thanks for the Info.


I don´t know if I am planning an update, but if I make one, I will be sure to add your into it.

My sources was actually mainly wikipedia, and was willing to make adjustments for Gameplay.


Interesting reading nevertheless :)
