Strike Fighters 2 North Atlantic Is Released!

Recommended Posts

Thirdwire's much anticipated release of Strike Fighters 2 North Atlantic has finally come.

 

Strike Fighters 2 North Atlantic is a jet air-combat game set in hypothetical Cold War Soviet invasion of Iceland. The player flyable aircraft include F-14 Tomcat and A-7 Corsair II.

The campaign is set in 1979 hypothetical "Cold War gone Hot" scenario - what if the Soviet Union had decided to invade West Germany in 1979? The key to Soviet victory in Europe rests in the capture of Iceland and its vital strategic US base located there. With the Soviet in control of Iceland, the NATO forces would not be able to contain the Soviet Northern Fleet, and the American reinforcement fleets would not be able to reach Europe.

Join the US Navy and USS Nimitz Carrier Battle Group sent to reinforce the Iceland defense, protect the carrier from Soviet long-range bombers, and strike the Kiev battle group of the Soviet Northern Fleet!

The game is designed for Windows 7/Vista and DX10 capable video card. It can be merged with other games in the series (Strike Fighters 2, Strike Fighters 2 Vietnam, Strike Fighters 2 Europe, and Strike Fighters 2 Israel) for additional aircraft, maps, missions, and campaigns.

Well, I can say the only terrain that makes use of the new terrain engine is Iceland. Sigh, they have the rest of the maps there, but only the Iceland maps uses the new terrain engine.

That's good. Else 100% of the user made terrains would suddenly be incompatible with the game.

 

I'm installing.

 

Guys, just as a quick reminder, be sure to move any 3rd Party AIM-54s, CVN-68, CVN-65, CG-25, EA-6B, and E-2C files somewhere else before installing just in case the Thirdwire objects use the same names and folders.

I got it and I palyed! I'm worried about long effective range of Phenix AAM. I thought that it may be upset gaming balance.

 

 

On the other hand, file extractor is not working in this version.

the big question to me is: is the tomcat capable of firing multiple AIM-54 at the same time?grin.gif

 

Yes!

 

Sort of.

 

The AIM-54 does not require that you be in Single Target Track mode (radar locked on single target) in order to fire. The target must be selected on the radar but you don't have to lock and the weapon will track. AIM-7s still require STT mode engaged in the radar.

Can you take off from carriers in single missions??

 

(and not only in campaigns and user made missions as until now)

Yes. It's specific to the Iceland terrain for right now, but once we figure out how battlegroups work, we may be able to modify ALL the terrains to allow it.

Really?! I sure would like to know the secret to this gem. I have only ever been able to use a carrier during a naval air campaign. Never inside a single mission.
