F-105D Hill AFB updated skins





Updated Hill AFB skins for the SF2 F-105D


This is an update for Daddyairplanes´ Hill Afb Skins (http://combatace.com/files/file/13741-f-105d-hill-afb-skins/) that I did, and are uploaded with DAs permission. The main changes from the previous version are added details and weathering as well as restoring missing rivet and panel lines.


So 90% of the credit goes to Daddyairplanes, I only did a visual tuneup.


Happy flying,

Semi Historical Hill AFB F-105D Skins


The 466th TFS, USAF Reserve, was lhe last operator of the F-105 Thunderchief.

They flew their last mission before converting to the F-16A in 1983. Due to how

long they flew the 'Thud' and their proximity to Ogden Air Logistics Center,

where many aircraft go to be repainted, they flew 3 Thuds in colors other than

the traditional SEA camo. Those schemes (SEA Wraparound, European 1, and a one

off Desert scheme based on the pattern of the first two) are represented here.

Also provided are black tailcode for the 466th ('HI') and 50 black serial numbers.

Sorry only 50 as the Thud was getting rarer by that time. The first 10 serials are

historical with the first 3 being the ones used by the aircraft so painted. the other

40 numbers are redone TW serials spanning FY59-62.


This is not a completely accurate rendition, the pattern is different than T.O. 1-1-4

states for SEA Wraparound and Euro 1. What I did was to wraparound the stock skin, then

swap the colors (as was done IRL). I also did not do the nose art's for the aircraft

due to other commmitments, and lack of time.


Much credit goes to :

ludo.54m for his templates, which allowed me more freedom to color while keeping the

panel lines and rivets

Soulfreak, both for the idea and material support with references

TK for the stock bird and decals

the greater CA community for support and education over the years


Included in the mod are


Desert, Euro 1 and SEA Wraparound skins

my Expanded Squadronlist.ini, which puts 466th TFS as selectable in menu

the Photoshop templates I used to create this mod.



unzip the files, copy and paste to the appropriate folders. Allow merging of

Aircraft and Decal folders. Enjoy



Thank you for downloading this mod!

      StrikeFighters2 Desert Storm Hi-Res 1920x1080 Menu Screens
      By Viper
      This mod includes custom 1920x1080 "StrikeFighters2 Desert Storm" themed menu, pilots and Campaign screens. You should unzip the file and preview the new screens before installing them. I recommend doing this as there are some alternate screens I have in there that you might like better.
      I recommend that you back up your CAMPAIGNS, FLIGHT, MENU and PILOTDATA folders in the SF2 Mod folder you're installing this mod into. Just in case you want to go back to your original setup.
      To install, simply unzip and copy the uncompressed CAMPAIGNS, FLIGHT, MENU and PILOTDATA folders to your StrikeFighters2 Desert Storm mod folder.
      My StrikeFighters2 Desert Storm mod on Win97 64-bit was..(yours may be different)...

      Republic F-105B Thunderchief (Stand in)

      Uses the TW F-105D model as a stand in with the following mods:

      - Removed nose pitot tube and added one to the left outer wing via fakepilot method.
      - Data.ini edits (weight, thrust, service year etc).
      - Ranging radar only.
      - Re-painted and re-panel lined the nose to re-shape it into that of the F-105B.
      - Moved cannon port.

      - Canopy can open.
      - Removed bombay fuel tank.
      - Cockpit is from the F-84F as the F-105B did not have the 'tape' style instruments or a radar scope like the F-105D
      - Added 'fighter sweep' mission as if a shooting war had developed during the Cuban Missile Crisis some of the 4th TFW F-105B Squadrons were tasked with an Air Superiority role.
      - One generic USAF silver skin using stock decals and another for the 335th TFS, 4th TFW that forward deployed to Macoy AFB during the October 1962 Cuban Missile Crisis.

      To Install:

      - Un-pack and drop into your mods folder.


      - TW for the F-105D.
      - Sundowner for the template.
      - Zurawski & Gunrunner for the cockpit.

      Background on the Rivet Haste project:
      With the soft (slatted) wing, the pinkie switch (basically the very first HOTAS), and the TISEO modifications for the F-4E, the USAF realized it had the tools to make its fighter pilots more lethal. In the late summer of 1972, the Rivet Haste program was established. Rivet Haste would be the Air Force's acknowledgement that years of substandard training and poor doctrine had to be reversed. Rivet Haste combined the slatted wing, TISEO, and 556 mod of the F-4E and teamed them up with handpicked crews with combat experience over Vietnam. They were assembled at Nellis AFB and here the key of Rivet Haste would take place- intensive training with the new F-4Es against the secret MiG force that Air Force flew out of Tonopah north of Las Vegas. Each Rivet Haste crew were paired up to stay together through training to deployment for combat- this allowed the pilot and his WSO to develop their own system of coordination in the cockpit and carry that to combat. Six pilots and six WSOs were in each Rivet Haste group and each pilot/WSO would fly at least three missions against the MiGs at Tonopah. Each month, a new group of six pilots and six WSOs were assigned to Rivet Haste. Crews assigned to Rivet Haste saw it as a quantum leap in air combat training that the USAF had never had before. Unfortunately they arrived in Vietnam to late to score any air-to air-kills and only flew a handful of Linebacker II missions before the end of the war.

      View File F-16E/F Block 60 REDUX
      F-16E and E Block 60 Desert Falcon's redone!
      I uploaded a older E/F pack that was pretty awful to be honest here is a much better redo!
      Made using the Block 50/52 models now to make it look better in general as well as some updates to the skin!
      Built using the Greek and Turkish F-16's as a base so if you have those the E/F should work just fine! You should already have all the weapons and sounds from earlier F-16 packs! Happy Hunting in the Gulf!
      Thank you to the Viper Team and everyone else who has worked on the SF2 vipers or this would never have been possible!

      Sea Harrier FRS.2 Aim-120 AMRAAM fuselage station update/ correction.
      This is an update to the Sea Harrier FRS.2 for SF2 V1.1 that replaces and corrects the fuselage Aim-120 weapon pylons and positioning.
      Simply place in your mods folder and OVERRIDE when prompted.
      The pylon is set up as a weapons station the same before but it is used 4 times instead of 2 to get the right length.
      You must have the Sea Harrier FRS.2 for SF2 V1.1
      Credits for the SF2 Shar FA.2:
      Wrench - also for the 'new' weapons pylon.
