I finally decided that I am going to get some of the DLC however I am setting myself a $20 limit for this month.

 

These are the DLC that I am looking at right now.

 

AI Plane Pack 2

 
AI Plane Pack 1
 
F-21A Lion United States Navy and Marines
 
Hunter FGA.73 (75/82) Sultan of Oman's Air Force
 
A-4K Skyhawk Royal New Zealand Air Force
 
Any advice on whether or not I should swap any of the above DLC for another and if so which ones and why?

AI packs 1 & 2 are WELL worth it (for the Spitfires alone!) and it adds some new commie birds, too.

 

The Lion may be needed for the upcoming Top Gun mod (see missions and campaings forum)

 

Others I would recommend is the Oz Mirage IIIC  and the F-4N (which I don't have! and need to get too!)

Hunter FGA.73 (75/82) Sultan of Oman's Air Force

 

Both are awesome and the later Hunter can be nasty.

The F-4N is a must. AI packs are good too. As for the rest, me thinks there is better here on site, BUT..... get the DLCs that interest you to support TW. Its why i got the F-4 skinpacks, even though i like Sundowners better

I like "Oz Mirage" cause it's alliterative. just rolls off the tounge

I swapped the F-21A Lion for the F-4N. I'll get the F-21A and the Mirage IIIO Royal Australian Air Force next month. Thank you.

 

Do I have to worry about the DLC installation overwriting anything?

Of all phantoms, F-4N is the best there is around. F-4Ks are, in many regards, not too much to offer beyond Ms at times. F-4EJ may be hard to place, but the skins are a work of art.

 

Mirage III, all are must have. The Belgian one, is great and adds much needed variety to Euro79 campaign, the same applies to the MirageIIIC and Euro62. 

 

The AI packs rock too, and you can always make them flyable. 

 

Kiwi and Aussie Skyhawks are cool, but in the end, you may not fly them too often. A-4L and A-4A are even worse in that regard

 

Also, i would be careful with Hunters. Dutch and Omani are cool, but Swedes and Swiss, not so much.

 

F-21A kicks ass, but is late and perhaps too short a timeframe,

 

I would avoid Corsairs altogether. French Crusaders are cool, but realistically, much less capable than their US counterparts. And F-8K is not worth it.

 

 

EDIT: Summarizing, i would get the F-4N, one of the Mirages (3O, 3C and/or 5BA) and the AI packs

The Kfir and F-4N are my favorites. The F-4K and Belgian Mirage 5 are close seconds.

 

Now that I'm on a stable internet connection I'll be able to get the AI packs and the Sultan's Hunters.

      Hi everybody,
      I just got interested in the Operation Desert Storm mod, which is amazing imho.
      I haven't bought SF2 yet, and i see some planes (like the Tomcat) are not in the standard edition, but i should buy DLCs (North Atlantic expansion in this case).
      I've seen the Tomcat, among many other planes that are not included in the vanilla SF2 in the OP Desert Storm mod.
      Now i was wondering: do i need North Atlantic expansion or all DLCs for SF2 to get OP Desert Storm mod to work? Or even if i got no Tomcat in the vanilla game, as soon as i download the mod i'll get it together with all other planes and assets?
      Are all those things included in the mod, so i just need to install it, without having all SF2 DLCs bought?   Or all the "extra" planes and assets i see in the mod are there thanks to DLCs and expansion packs?
      Thank you very much for helping me out guys

      View File Enhancement Pack for TW DLC 23 - F-4N Phantom II
      DLC 23 F-4N PHANTOM II ENHANCEMENT PACK
       
       
      This is a mod to enhance the DLC F-4N. It includes data.ini's for smoky engines,
      realistic weapons and drooping ailerons. It also features many skins that have been
      touched up using Sundowners templates. Finally it has 100 historic BuNo's, and
      several styles and colors for modexes. It covers a wide spread of N users without
      becoming completely OCD.
       
      Included are:
       
      -3 F-4N aircraft (N, N_77, N_80) to help keep some order and smallness of file size. skins covered include USN/MC Grey, Overall Gloss
      Gloss Gull Gray(circa 1980), Lo Viz Grey (1981) and TPS (1983). Ferris and Heater Ferris were not used for the most part on N models.
      -my expanded squadronlist.ini. tho many units are stock in here, several will not show without this. Plus it's got room for anybody you
      can think of and then some more.
      -an expansive NavalF4 decal folder to cover all years after Vietnam (EXCEPT 1976). not all will be full right now, but
      they will be filled up with some future planned mods.
      -a Numbers folder with Buno's for the N, and several styles of Modex's
      -smokier engine effects for the J-79s.
      -J-79 engine sounds
       
      REQUIRED: The TW F-4N Phantom II, DLC 23.
       
      INSTALLATION:
      same as any other mod. unzip the file, paste into your mod folder, allow overwrites for old copies
      of the smoke effects and the F-4N.ini.
       
      CREDITS
       
      First is a HUGE THANK YOU to mytai01. much of this work is based off of his model for decalling the F-4 Phantom.
      Some of the nn tgas are even lifted off his B model skins and adjusted into N models BuNos. Those that have seen
      his work will recognize much influence in this mod.
       
      Thanks to Sundowner for his templates. With a Sundowner template, you have to work hard to screw up a skin!!!!!
       
      As with all my Phantom mods, thank you to Spillone104 for his J-79 effects. I do like them so, and hope
      you will as well.
       
      thanks to JSF_Aggie for his drooping aileron edit for the data.ini. although TK fixed that in the July
      2013 patch, i have not patched there yet and know that many still haven't. for the time being the mod
      uses JSF_Aggie's work.
       
      Thanks to Gerwin, Blade, Wrench, Dave, mppd, Ghost531 and many others who have given me answers and resources
      to many technical questions the last year and a half I've been working this.
       
      special thanks to Ghost531 and CrazyHorseB34 for getting me off my fourth point of contact when stalled
      on this project
       
      and as always thanks to TK who developed both the game and the particular DLC, then left enough work for
      likes of me to fill in.
       
       
       
       
      again thank you for downloading this mod and i hope that you enjoy it!
