F-84I 'Sharav' for STRIKE FIGHTERS 1 (WOI c/w Add-On)


Republic Aviation F-84I 'Sharav' for Wings Over Israel c/w Add-On

The Armee de l'Air received its first F-84F Thunderstreaks in 1955 and it was in French service that the Thunderstreak saw its only actual combat during the Suez Crisis of October 1956. French Thunderstreaks from the 3rd Escadre moved to RAF Akrotiri on Cyprus whilst the 1st Escadre were deployed to the Israeli base at Lyddia where they supported the Israeli forces that invaded Sinai on October 29th. Despite seeing intensive action only one F-84F was lost and the tough and rugged aircraft so impressed the Israeli Air Force that they ordered 50 F-84F-70-RE aircraft before the end of 1956. The F-84F-70-RE featured the more powerful J65-W-7 rated at 7,800lbs thrust which helped with the initial climb rate and the combat ceiling and these were among the last Thunderstreak's to roll off the Farmingdale production line in the Summer of 1957.

In 1962 the entire Israeli F-84F fleet was grounded due to the same corrosion of control rods that had affected the F-84F worldwide but they were soon restored to full operational capacity, eventually serving with distinction during the 1967 Six Day War and surviving in Israeli service until 1973 when stress corrosion eventually forced the retirement of the Israeli F-84F fleet.

Ignoring by own backstory I've given the 'Sharav' Suez stripes and a 1956 start date! I've previously released this in SF2 but thought it would be nice to release it in SF1 but please note that it does require both Wings Over Israel and the Add-On Expansion Pack.


INSTRUCTIONS

1. From the AIRCRAFT folder drag and drop the F-84I folder into your Aircraft folder.

2. From the DECALS folder drag and drop the F-84I folder into your Decals folder.

      View File [Fictional] Mikoyan-Gurevich Ye-2PFM "Faceplate-D"
      Mikoyan-Gurevich Ye-2PFM "Faceplate-D" for STRIKE FIGHTERS 2 
      Released 'as is', this is Mikoyan-Gurevich Ye-2PFM 'Faceplate' - featuring a 3D model by KnightWolf45 (the artist formerly known as Cocas). 
      In the mid-1950's the MiG OKB was tasked in developing a new lightweight supersonic interceptor fighter for the Soviet Air Force and flight-tested two distinct designs in parallel - one with a thin, swept-wing and one with a tailed delta wing. The tailed delta would eventually win out to become the famous MiG-21 'Fishbed' but it's tantalising to consider 'what if' the swept-wing Ye-2A prototype had either won or was considered good enough to also be procured. Anyway, this is the swept-wing Ye-2 as it might have looked in service with the Soviet Air Force and I've also included Egyptian, Mongolian and Parani skins. 
      Giving the aircraft a service designation is tricky as it was given a provisional designation of MiG-23 but, of course, this conflicts with the swing-wing 'Flogger' that came later. We can't use an even number like MiG-20 or MiG-22 so I've just called it the Ye-2PFM and you can change this to suit your own thoughts on this matter.

      INSTRUCTIONS
      1. From the AIRCRAFT folder drag and drop the Ye-2PFM folder into your Aircraft folder.
      2. From the DECALS folder drag and drop the Ye-2PFM folder into your Decals folder.
      3. From the WEAPONS folder drag and drop the Faceplate-GP-9 folder into your Weapons folder.
      That's it!

      CREDITS
      As always, thanks to Third Wire for a great little game/sim.
      Huge thanks to KnightWolf45 for creating the Ye-2PFM 3D model a few years ago and to the CAF team for any inputs that followed.
      Special thanks also to Coupi for sending me his templates that I've used to create the skins.
      Thanks to Paladrian for the MiG-21 pit.
      And, finally, thanks to everyone in the wider Third Wire community.

      View File [Fictional] Supermarine Spitfire IXc 'Iran'
      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!

      Extra special thanks to Starfighter2 for the Spitfire cockpit.
