SF2E: TSF: The Suomenlahti Skirmishes

By The Scandinavian Front Team


During the summer of 1964, the Finnish Air Force is in the middle of a large buildup. Having been granted possesion of guided missiles and a few Bombers for Maritime Recon duties, the Finnish Air Force is a competent and mobile addition to the Scandinavian Arsenal.


On the first of August, The Soviet Union declared the Finns in voilation of the Paris treaty, limiting the size of their Air Force and decides to patrol the Finnish Skies. The Finns retort that any unauthorized aircraft in Finnish Airspace will be shot down.


The Finns are about to show what they can do with their new MiGs, the loathed Gnat and the venerable Vamppi against five full squadrons of Soviet Aircraft...




The Mod is based around a limited air war between Finland and the Soviet Union. There is no ground conflict, and most of the missions will involve defensive measures taken to ensure Finnish Supremacy over their homeland. If you are a fan of Close Air Support or ground attack, this is probably not the mod for you.



If you are using a mod, or plan to use one, TSF will mess around with settings other mods may be using.


As such, creating a seperate mod

folder for TSF is a good idea. If you only plan to use TSF, then this step can be bypassed.


Go to your installation folder (Usually C:\Program Files\Thirdwire\Strike Fighters 2). Make a copy of Strike Fighters 2.exe / Strike Fighters 2 Europe.exe depending on what you prefer and got installed. Name the Copy Strike Fighters 2 TSF.exe . Start your new .exe once, then close the game.


Now go to your Mod Folders. For Windows 7/Vista, this is located in C:\User \Name\Saved Games\Thirdwire. Unzip the contents of the 7zip file into the mod folder of your choice. Allow any overwrites.


As long as this package is installed last, it can and should be merged with the other The Scandinavian Front packages.
