History

 

The RAN ordered the Phantom to replace the de Havilland Sea Vixen FAW.22 which had served on Australia's Audacious class carrier HMAS Melbourne R21 (ex-HMS Africa). They were delivered in 1969, and served with two squadrons, 805 Squadron, which was the operational squadron embarked on HMAS Melbourne, and 724 Squadron, which served as a training unit. Both were homeported at HMAS Albatross in Nowra, NSW. Where necessary, additional training was provided in RAAF Phantom FGR.22s with 2 OCU at RAAF Williamtown.

 

The RAN's Phantom FG.21s served with Commonwealth forces in the Far East and the Indian Ocean for many years, including sporadic skirmishes with Indonesian aircraft and ships. In 1982, HMAS Melbourne was assigned to aid the British effort to liberate the Falklands from Argentine occupation.

 

After the Falklands War, the Phantom FG.21 continued to serve. HMAS Melbourne was paid off in 1987. The surviving Phantom FG.21s were turned over to the RAAF to provide spares for the RAAF's Phantom FGR.22 force. The final flight of a Phantom FG.21 in RAN markings was at the Australian Bicentennial Airshow in 1988.

 

Installation

 

Install the contents of ModFolder into your mod folder. Overwrite as necessary. You must have the F-4K DLC from the ThirdWire DLC Store to use this mod.

 

Notes

 

There is also an RAN F-4K available wearing US-style schemes and a camouflage scheme based on that used by the RAN's A-4Gs late in their service. It can be integrated with this mod. Note that this mod has a different aircraft name. The name of this mod is "F-4K Phantom FG.21 (RAN)", while the US-style version is named "F-4K Phantom II (RAN)".

      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.

      >Disclaimer:
      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.

      View File [Fictional] Dhimari F-4E Phantom
      McDonnell Douglas F-4E Phantom for STRIKE FIGHTERS 2
      This is a simple mod of the stock F-4E to give a Dhimari F-4E Phantom with markings for;
      No.1 Squadron - 'The Panthers'
      No.2 Squadron - 'The Hawks'
      As this mod uses the early 'short cannon' F-4E I have restricted the service dates to 1968 to 1973 inclusive. At some time in the future I'll get a later Dhimari F-4E sorted.

      INSTRUCTIONS
      1. From the AIRCRAFT folder drag and drop the F-4E_Dh folder into your Aircraft folder.
      2. From the DECALS folder drag and drop the F-4E_Dh folder into your Decals folder.
      That's it!

      CREDITS
      As always, thanks to Third Wire for a great little game/sim.
      And, finally, thanks to everyone in the wider Third Wire community.
      Regards

      McDonnell Douglas Phantom FGR.5 for STRIKE FIGHTERS 2
      This is a simple mod of the Third Wire Phantom F-4E_72 to give a 'what if' Phantom FGR.5 fighter with markings for No.23 and No.29 squadrons of the Royal Air Force as they might have appeared at the time of Operation Granby in 'Desert Pink'. Service years have been extended right up to 2010 in case you want to use it in Operation Herrick (from 2001) or Operation Telic (from 2003).

      INSTRUCTIONS
      1. Drop the PhantomFGR5 folder into your Aircraft folder.
      2. From the DECALS folder drag and drop the PhantomFGR5 folder into your Decals folder.
      That's it!

      CREDITS
      As always, thanks to Third Wire for a great little game/sim.
      Thanks also to Sundowner for the F-4E templates.
      And, finally, thanks to everyone in the wider Third Wire community.
