'What if' KAW Hawker Hunter F.1 with Campiagn


'What if' KAW Hawker Hunter F.1A & F.1B with campiagn 1.0

 

 

The back story:

 

In order to meet the Mig-15 threat over Korea and with no capable fighters currently in the RAF inventory the British Ministry of Supply instructs Hawker Aviation to undertake a crash production program of its P.1067 fighter. Project ‘Huntsman’. In less than a year since the prototype flew and two years ahead of schedule the Hawker Hunter is deployed to the Korean Theatre in early 1952. Since the Hunter F.1 designation was already assigned to the first full production Hunters due into service in 1954, the Hunters produced under program ‘Huntsman’ are (unusually) designated Hunter F.1A

 

These aircraft are basically identical to the future production Hunter F.1 the most obvious difference being that they are finished in High Speed Silver. However the lack of paint means these Hunters are 21 Mph faster and 53Kg lighter than the full production F.1 Hunters.

 

Operations over Korea immediately highlighted the Hunters inherent shortcomings. Of most concern was its lack of fuel and endurance with barely an hour’s flight time. Also of concern was the damage done to the fuselage caused by the ejection of spent cartridge links. These concerns (among others) would be addressed in time by future models of the Hunter, but in the skies of Korea in 1952 the lack of range and endurance had to be immediately mitigated. And thus the Hunter F.1B is born with the addition of wing mounted drop tanks installed in theatre.

 

 

What's in it:

 

 

- Hawker Hunter F.1A

 

- Hawker Hunter F.1B

 

- Various RAF 43 and 222 Squadron Skins in Camo and High Speed Silver.

 

- NOTE: The camo skins are included as a bonus but the aircraft data.ini files are set up to reflect the high speed silver skins as I have included the weight reduction and increased speed that comes without using camo paint. I found the figures I used in an article about the trial OD green Sabres in Korea.

 

- sounds

 

- pilot

 

- Modified Korea Campaign using the Hunters. This will not change the original campaign in any way, you will see an additional campaign called 'Korean War Hunters Over Korea' that you can select. Missions will be similar to the Sabre, No 43 Squadron is based at Suwon AB (K-13) and No. 222 Squadron at Kimpo AB (K-14).

 

- NOTE: this mod can be added to the Wings Over Korea mod without any change what so ever to the original game play. You will never see these Hunters show up over Korea unless you play the above included campaign or start a single mission with a Hunter.

 

 

Operations:

 

 

- canopy open key=10 automatic closing at take off

 

 

To Install:

 

 

- Designed to be used with the Wings Over Korea mod but should work without it.

 

- Put everything in you main StrikeFighters2 KAW mods folder

 

- Get the Wings Over Korea mod here:

I'm intrigued, because the RAF did not deploy entire units in Korean, only exchange pilots on secondment to the USAF and RAAF. The Fleet Air Airm *did* deploy the Hawker Sea Fury though. The frontline RAF fighters of the time would have been the Meteor F Mk 8 (used by the Aussies), the DH Vampire FB Mk 5 and, from 1952, the Venom FB Mk. 1. At the time of Korea, the RAF were more heavily engaged in their own operations in Malaya, and were stretched my meeting commitments in Europe.

Delays to getting the Avon running with adequate surge margin in the Hunter meant buying in interim solutions, including the Venom, and the Canadair Sabre IV, which was deployed almost entirely with 2ATAF in West Germany. The SF2 version of the Venom FB4 is *interesting*, it has lower wing loading than the MiG-17, and, at low level, is more than capable of out-turning it. Performance in the vertical plane isn't great though. Venom vs. MiG-15 is an interesting one. The two major shortcomings of the J-47 powered Sabres were a lack of firepower (and why the USAF never fitted them with cannon is a mystery to me) and too low power/weight ratio at altitude. The Venom has the same kind of power limitations, but has a much better offensive kick with 20mm Hispanos.

      What is it?
      It's a paint scheme for the Su-27 Flanker of the Belkan Air Force, 5th Air Division, 23rd Tactical Fighter Squadron, "Gelb" Team from the game Ace Combat Zero
      The Gelb Team, of the Belkan Air Force's 23rd Tactical Fighter Squadron, consists of a two-plane formation of two Su-37 Terminators. The squad's leader, Major Orbert Jager, and his wingman, Lieutenant Rainer Altman, were the pilots assigned to the Gelb Team. They were commonly assigned to interception missions along the Hydrian Line, the southern defence line. Due to their flawless and synchronized flying style, the two pilots became known as the "Coupled Cormorants".
      In the beginning of the Belkan War in 1995, the Gelb Team was a large part of Belka's air and ground superiority, despite their odd formation. It was the flexibility their formation provided which allowed them to be more effective than a classic fighter squadron. However, when the Allied Forces went on the offensive, the Hydrian Line was stretched thin. The Gelb Team was forced to sortie five times a day in order to maintain the line, but due to the sudden attack, were left with little logistics support and not receiving even basic maintenance for their aircraft.
      Despite being overused, the "Coupled Cormorants" maintained the battle-line, until they were sent to the Ustian capital, Directus, in order to stop the city from being retaken by the Allied Forces. However, they arrived late into the battlefield, but did engage the Ustian 6th Air Division, 66th Air Force Unit "Galm Team" and were shot down. The flight leader was killed in action, but Gelb 2 his wingman ejected safely and later went on to settle in the city where he was shot down over.
      **I've used Marcfighter's Su-27 Flanker instead due to it being more commonly used, in addition to the fact that the template is actually available.**

      What is it?
      It's a paintscheme for the SAAB J-35J Draken  and Dassault Rafale-M F1of the Sapin Air Force, 9th Air and Land Division, 11th Tactical Fighter Squadron "Espada" from the game Ace Combat Zero
      Espada Team, formerly members of the 9th Air and Land Division, 11th Tactical Fighter Squadron, is a fighter squadron from Sapin that participated in the A World With No Boundaries uprising.
      The operational history behind the Espada Squadron is unknown, but it is known that Marcela Vasquez held a relationship with her commander, Alberto Lopez. In October of 1995, Lopez defected to A World With No Boundaries movement that rose in central Osea after the Belkan War, abandoning their base in Sapin and disappearing without a trace. They were not the only soldiers from Sapin to join the group, as Air Force commander Ramos Gonzales and his Suerte Squadron followed suit. 
      On 25 December of 1995, the squadron accompanied the XB-0 Hresvelgr during the bombing of Lumen in the coup d'etat, along with other rebel pilots from the movement, and carried out airstrikes on Valais Air Base later that day. Galm Team pursued the XB-0 to the Waldreich Mountains, where it clashed with Espada. Vasquez and Lopez were shot down, and the squadron was disbanded.

      I forgot to mention, I didn't create all of these...didn't mean to imply I made them all...I collected them from all over...here and the net...
      I could not find the source (CombatAce Links) for some of the items, (didn't remember where I got it from) so I removed them...sorry about that...
