SF2 WW2 PTO RNZAF P-40E/K/M/N Kittyhawk Pack


SF2 WW2 PTO RNZAF P-40E/K/M/N Kittyhawk Pack

 

 

A total of 301 P-40s were allocated to the RNZAF under Lend-Lease, for use in the Pacific Theater, although four of these were lost in transit. The aircraft equipped 14 Squadron, 15 Squadron, 16 Squadron, 17 Squadron, 18 Squadron, 19 Squadron and 20 Squadron.

 

RNZAF P-40K/N/M squadrons were successful in air combat against the Japanese between 1943 and 1944 (RNZAF P-40E never saw combat). Their pilots claimed 100 aerial victories in P-40, whilst losing 20 aircraft in combat. Geoff Fisken, the highest scoring British Commonwealth ace in the Pacific, flew P-40s with 14 Squadron, although half of his victories were claimed with the Brewster Buffalo.

 

The overwhelming majority of RNZAF P-40 victories were scored against Japanese fighters, mostly Zeroes. Other victories included Aichi D3A "Val" dive bombers. The only confirmed twin engine claim, a Ki-21 "Sally" (misidentified as a G4M "Betty") fell to Fisken in July 1943

 

From late 1943 and 1944, RNZAF P-40s were increasingly used against ground targets, including the innovative use of naval depth charges as improvised high-capacity bombs. The last front line RNZAF P-40s were replaced by Vought F4U Corsairs in 1944. The ex combat P-40s joined the P-40E in New Zealand OCU Squadrons relegated to use as advanced pilot trainers.

 

The name Kittyhawk was generally retained throughout the aircraft's' service with the RNZAF, even when the later models' official name was Warhawk.

 

 

 

Included are 4 Royal New Zealand Air Force specific aircraft with a total of 11 skins.

No problem mate, as a kiwi I'm embarrassed to admit it but I didn’t really know that much detail about RNZAF service in the Pacific until I started putting together this pack and doing the skins. After the humiliating axing of our air combat wing in 2001 and massive budget cuts that followed the Air Force tends to skim over the history of its fighter squadrons in its publications or museum content/ books etc. It’s a real shame but I guess it’s quite raw for them still and they tend to focus on New Zealanders that served in RAF squadrons or our Article XV squadrons within the RAF. Fortunately the internet and a few New Zealand aviation forums are rich with information because personally I much prefer a P-40, Corsair or Dauntless with Kiwi markings than an Article XV aircraft in boring old RAF markings hehe wink2.gif.pagespeed.ce.DG-_ZgrqXc.gif

Sorry guys but I had the wrong data.ini files in the P-40N and M with the old FM. The correct FM will stop the wingmen crashing shortly after takeoff.  I’ve also included the damaged.lod and textures in case they weren’t already in your PTO install.

      Timor, North Oceania (1950-2018) Terrain
      August 13th, 2018 (1st Release)
      by Menrva

      >For Strike Fighters 2: Vietnam, Recommended Full-5 Merged
      This is a complete remake of the Modern Darwin terrain made by Wrench.
      A better and more complete tileset has been added, improving the looks of Northern Australia with the introduction of desert and barren valleys. Various rivers and lakes have been hand-tiled and mimic Real World courses. Now the island of Timor has a lot of bases to take-off from. Numerous target areas, such as emergency airstrips and civilian airports, have been added in order to expand playability, targets of opportunity and year range.
      This terrain features a fresh new 250m resolution heightmap (instead of the stock 500m resolution), allowing for greater details and precision in elevation changes; overall it provides the whole terrain with a better look.
      The terrain spans from August 17, 1950 (when President Sukarno proclaimed a single unitary Republic of Indonesia) to December 31, 2018; it is designed for fictional clashes between ANZUS/SEATO forces (namely Australia and New Zealand) and a random pool of Red Side countries (namely Indonesia and China).
      Targets reflect Real World events as accurately as possible; for instance, some airfields will appear only after a certain year, according to historic changes. If you have SF2NA, naval fleets might spawn in the Timor Sea. Also, Off Map Airbases have been added and long range AI flights can be generated from them. All main targets have been placed accurately in their Real World locations.
      Ground Objects are not included. You can obtain the most needed from Wrench's original Modern Darwin terrain release.

      >Credits (in no particular order):
      -Wrench, for he had the idea of recreating such a scenario in the Strike Fighters world.
      -swambast, who provided me with invaluable help in tracking and fixing common and uncommon bugs.
      -gerwin, whose TFDtool has proved to be essential in today's terrain making. If the terrain is pretty accurate to RL it's also because of him. I included his very nice Airfield 7+8 Addon Pack, too.
      -mue, for the improved shaders he made, which I have included and reworked for the terrain, and for the tools he made for SF2 modding.
      -luk1978, for the waternormal bitmap he shared at the SF2 screenshots thread. Your mods are very interesting!
      -MigBuster, I have included some of his great hi-res textures for runways.
      -Stary, for the hi-res PTO tileset he made, which I have reworked and expanded.
      -Brain32, for the gorgeous VietnamSEA tileset repaint he made, from which I borrowed a few tiles.
      -Centurion-1, Spudknocker and tiopilotos, for the impressive tileset they made for the Angola terrain, from which I borrowed some tiles.
      -Gepard, for his great tutorials about terrain making, in the SF1 Knowledge Base at CombatACE. It's a gold mine!
      -krfrge, who has produced a tutorial for recreating SF2-like planning maps, which prompted me to work on templates and my own high quality planning maps. Thank you very much!
      -comrpnt, for his Approach and Airfield Lighting Pack mod packages for SF1 series, which I reworked and included.
      Because the original terrain was made and tweaked numerous times by Wrench, I included the ReadMe files from his original packages, to the end of giving proper credit to everyone involved directly or not.

      This is a freeware; yet it can be redistributed ONLY in other CombatACE mods/mod packages.
      Any changes to the terrain package's files and/or any copy-and-paste attempts of their contents are NOT authorized if you plan to release them in other mods. But permission might be granted to those who request it to me at CombatACE.
      This terrain may NOT in any way, shape or form be used in any payware additions.

      If you look closely at Mustang in the Foreground, mounted dorsally behind the normally included antenna you should note the inclusion of a directional loop antenna. Other pics have the loop installed on other CBI/PTO 'Stangs. Its unusual but I believe had downloaded files where a pic in the 'outer' opackage had the mod, but inside the pack at the 'plane level the 'loadnig' or 'hanger' screen (of the same plane) does not have the loop. Obviously, the pic could be 'modded.' Maybe the fake pilot method was utilized.
      If anyone could clear up the mystery, thanks. An double thnks if you know how to get this mod.
      I finally bit the bullet and got me some YAP. I wanted to fly from le Shima escorting the YAP B-29 to the home islands with skinned TW P-51D/Ks etc

      Just as the operation Desert Thunder began, the confident and proud forces of Dhimar and USA launch into the battlefield over Paran. An enormus aluminium cloud composed by F-4s, A-4s and B-57 crossed the frontline to bomb the heart of Parans military infrastructure, not knowing what was waiting for them...

       
       
      Within minutes, all squadrons that didn't drawn quickly from the strike, dissapeared from the radar. Those who managed to return to allied soil witnessed enormus explosions, planes vanishing... After hearing what intelligence reports had to say, a new installarion of extraordinary cannons was built deep in Paran soil, cappable of accelerating rounds to enormus speeds and tear down any air unit in a 80km range. Something must be done about it if they want to win the war...
      Thats what happened when I put this experiment in the desert terrain and played a campaign hahaha. Here is more footage of it for the ace combat fans:
