ETO Spitfire Mk.VA by TMF for SF2

SF2 WW2 Spitfire Mk.VA by Coupi/Mod Mafia/TMF            5/10/2018

= For SF2, Full-4/5 Merged (Reccomended/Preferred) =

*Note: This mod may not work in SF/Wo* 1stGen game installs at any patch level, due to the excessive modifications made to fit them into the SF2 environment. End Users (tm) that attempt to do so, do so at their own risk.*

This is a modification of the TMF Spitfire MK.1A to the early VA version; this mark uses the "A" wing with 8 303 caliber machine guns.

This is the Vickers/Supermarine Spitfire Mk.VA. This pak contains skins/decal set for the following RAF Squadrons:

No. 92

There are 2 skins; one Dark Earth/Dark Green/Sky (pre-1942) and Medium Sea Gray/Dark Green/light grey for post-1942. The SF2 Date Switch is used to turn on the later skin in November, 1941

All skins are in jpg format, Decal Randomization is TRUE. Serial numbers, while not matched to plane-in-squadron letters, are all correct for Mk.Vs used by 92 Squadron. Those marked with a star (*) fall into the correct sequencing for those aircraft built as the 8-gunned Va version.

The canopy/entry door open with the Standard Animation Keystroke (tm), Shift/0. For those RAF Squadron listed in the game's SquadronList.ini, my 'fake sqtail' decal will activate their "Displayed Name" on the LoadoutScreen.

When 'in game', you'll see 

"Spitfire Mk.Va (TMF)" 

on the aircraft drop-down selection window.  The Official Squadron Crest (tm) is used for the 'paint chip' for each skin.

As always, fairly easy to follow, highly detailed install instructions are included. So, please READ them. Also, give the "Notes" section a read too for futher explinations, clarifactions, illuminations and so forth. 

Good Hunting!



As I always reccomend, unzip the "sf2_ww2_eto_spit5a_tmf_pak.zip" to a temp folder or your desktop or somewhere else that's easy to find

Then, simply, copy/paste the Objects folder supplied directly =OVER= your existing /Objects folder.

Copy/Paste the Sound folder over your existing /Sounds folder.

Odds are, you have the engine sound already, but I like to upload as complete as possible products
You'll probably be asked "OVERWRITE?", just say Yes. 

I've already seperated out the various folders (Aircraft, Decals, etc), so they'll drop right where they're supposed to be.


Historically, No.164 Argentine-British also flew the Va. They used the "FJ" code on their aircraft. I'm sure there are other units, but haven't been able to run them down accurately. So, it's easier to just stay with No.92, as the Vb & c cannon armed versions were soon in service.

As this aircraft LOD lacks the hardpoints the Mk.V had, I've used  the Fake Pilot Method (tm) to add ONLY the centerline station for a drop tank.

Coupi for the idea and all major ini work (Many thanks to Wrench!!!)
Bpao for the aircraft
Kesselbrut for the cockpit
PappaRomeo for the modded EAW gunsight pak, the RAF Mk II used here
AVHistory for the Merlin engine sound
Me ("Bob") for some new serial decals and ini Work, and the MSG/DG skin

I'm not even gonna try to find all my RAF Spit books....


Happy Hunting!

Legal BS:

RAF units that used the Spit V.a with operational dates, short info and sqn codes:

No 26 Sqn: Mar-Nov 1944        Artillery spotters for the Royal Navy, RM
No 54 Sqn: May-Nov 1941        Fighter, KL
No 66 Sqn: Feb-Mar 1942        Fighter, LZ
No 116 Sqn: Oct-Dec 1942    Anti Aircraft Calibration Unit, II
No 130 Sqn: Oct-Dec 1941    Fighter, PJ
No 133 Sqn: Jan-Mar 1942    Fighter (Eagle Squadron), MD
No 134 Sqn: Dec 1941-Feb 1942
No 154 Sqn: Feb-Apr 1942    Fighter, HT
No 164 Sqn: Apr-Sep 1942    Argentine-British Sqn, FJ
No 165 Sqn: Apr-Jun 1942    SK
No 332 Sqn: Jun 1942-Apr 1942    AH (should be Jan instead of Jun...?)
No 349 Sqn: Jun-Sep 1943    Belgian, GE

These are what I have found so far. There may be others (though not likely due to the limited number this version was built in).

Here is one more:

No 421 Sqn: Apr-May 1942    Canadian, AU

Interesting fact: In 1941, the personal plane of Douglas Bader was a Spit Va, even though the wing he commanded flew the cannon-armed Vb. He thought that the machine-gun armament was more effective against fighters (especially at close range) than the then-troublesome cannons.

Bader's Spit
