      View File [Fictional] Lockheed F-104C 'Getti Tonanti'
      Lockheed F-104C 'Getti Tonanti' for STRIKE FIGHTERS 2
      This is a very simple mod of the stock Third Wire F-104C to create a fictional F-104C of the famous 'Getti Tonanti' aerobatic display team of the Aeronautica Militare who performed at the opening ceremony of the 1960 Olympic Games in Rome. The real 'Getti Tontanti' flew F-84F's in 1960 so this is just my interpretation of how the Starfighter might have looked with those distinctive Olympic Rings coloured tails.
      If you haven't got the F-104C then I'm sure you can hack it to fit the F-104G by changing the skin bitmap names, etc.

      BACKSTORY
      Entering service in February 1958 with the 83rd Fighter Interceptor Squadron at Hamilton AFB, California the F-104A interceptor served only briefly with the USAF Air Defense Command but this was soon followed by the multi-role F-104C which entered service with USAF Tactical Air Command in September 1958 when the 479th Tactical Fighter Wing at George AFB, California began to re-equip with the type. Despite setting a new world altitude record of 103,395 ft (31,515 m) just a few months later in December 1958 the USAF sharply reduced their orders for the F-104 leading Lockheed to urgently seek export orders and they soon gained an export order from the Italian Government in January 1960 for 40 F-104C's for the Aeronautica Militare. 
      With Italy hosting the Olympic Games in the late summer of 1960, the Italian President Giovanni Gronchi personally asked the US President Dwight D. Eisenhower for the earliest possible delivery date as he wanted to use the F-104C's as part of the opening ceremony. Not only did 'Ike' graciously agree but he also authorised the immediate transfer of 10 F-104C's from USAF stocks which were airlifted to Europe during February and March being reassembled at Ramstein Air Base before being flown to Villafranca Air Base by USAF pilots and officially handed over to the 5th Aerobrigata of the Aeronautica Militare. The F-104C's replaced the F-84F Thunderstreaks of the 'Getti Tonanti' aerobatic display team and this elite unit performed a sensational display at both the opening and closing ceremonies of the Games of the XVII Olympiad held in Rome from August 25th to September 11th, 1960.

      INSTRUCTIONS
      1. From the AIRCRAFT folder drag and drop the F-104Cgt folder into your Aircraft folder.
      2. From the DECALS folder drag and drop the F-104Cgt folder into your main Decals folder.
      That's it! 
      BTW the mission editor can be used to select all 6 aircraft leaving you to get some formation screenshots taken!

      Thanks to Third Wire for a great little game/sim.
      And thanks to everyone in the wider Third Wire community.

      View File [Fictional] Lockheed F-104E Starfighter 'ANG'
      Lockheed F-104E for STRIKE FIGHTERS 2
      This is a very simple mod of the stock Third Wire F-104G to create a fictional USAF F-104E with markings for;
      112th TFS of the Ohio ANG in a 'Euro One' style scheme.
      162nd TFS of the Ohio ANG in a 'Euro One' style scheme.
      198th TFS of the Puerto Rico ANG in a 'T.O. 1-1-4' style scheme.
      It goes without saying that you must have the F-104G LOD's in your install.

      BACKSTORY
      Whilst, officially, USAF interest in the F-104 programme began to ebb (leading to only 77 F-104C's being built) they kept a watchful eye on Lockheed's progress into transforming the original hot-rod interceptor fighter into a multi-mission tactical fighter for export to selected 'free world' nations. As negotiations with Federal Germany reached a critical phase in 1958 concern was expressed by the Bonn government that Lockheed were attempting to sell an aircraft no longer wanted by it's home nation. Lockheed cleverly took these concerns back to Washington and claimed that lucrative export orders were at jeopardy leading to a token order for a new version of the Starfighter for the USAF.
      Designated F-104E this new version broadly represented a halfway house between the F-104C and the forthcoming F-104G. Only 60 F-104E's were planned to be produced but the success of the F-104C flown by Capt Charles E. Tofferi in the 1962 William Tell tactical weapons meet, against strong competition from F-100 and F-105 pilots, led to continued low-rate production followed by a larger batch of 240 F-104E's making an eventual total of 336. F-104E's were deployed to Vietnam and surviving aircraft were refurbished for ANG use with the type being finally retired in 1988 when the 112th TFS re-equipped with F-16A's. 

      INSTRUCTIONS
      1. From the AIRCRAFT folder drag and drop the F-104E folder into your Aircraft folder.
      2. From the DECALS folder drag and drop the F-104E folder into your main Decals folder.
      That's it!
