A great one, so was also the A-4 and A-7 made recently. But unlike the A-4 that could have fit the Carriers the RCN had in the sixties, the F-8 could not have fit in my opinion :) But like you did on your screenies, the RCN opted for a new carrier :)

 

Would be fun to have had those. 

 

Do you know if someone is planning to model the CF-100 (could be a great add-on for the European theater as the RCAF deployed them in Europe and the Belgian had some... 

 

Once again, your skins are great Spinners! Maybe in the future those could be skinned like the RCAF scheme of the time (white under, grey above separated by the red/white line) or even the 2 grey tone (light grey under, dark grey above).

      Supermarine Spitfire IXc 'Iran' for STRIKE FIGHTERS 2 
      This is a simple mod of the stock Third Wire Spitfire IXc to create a fictional Spitfire IXc in service with the Imperial Iranian Air Force in the 1946-1951 timeline.

      BACKSTORY
      When Iran ordered Hawker Hurricanes from the UK in 1940 there was never any real hope of the order being immediately fulfilled due to the urgent wartime demands of the Royal Air Force although 10 war weary Hurricanes were transferred from RAF Middle East Command stocks during 1943. When hostilities ceased the Iranian government asked the UK government for more advanced fighters and this was agreed leading to the transfer of 26 Supermarine Spitfire IXC's from RAF Mediterranean and Middle East Command. All 26 Spitfires were delivered to the Advanced Fighter Training Group of the Flying Training School at Doshan Teppeh during 1946.

      INSTRUCTIONS
      1. From the AIRCRAFT folder drag and drop the Spitfire9cIIAF folder into your Aircraft folder.
      2. From the DECALS folder drag and drop the Spitfire9cIIAF folder into your Decals folder.
      That's it!

      CREDITS
      As always, thanks to Third Wire for a great little game/sim.
      Extra special thanks to Starfighter2 for the Spitfire cockpit.
      And, finally, thanks to everyone in the wider Third Wire community.
