Always, shopping for more air frames due to long running conflict with neighbor Paran, in 2008 the Dhimar Air Force began operating a squadron of Atlas Cheetah Cz acquired from South Africa.
I'd unzip the file into a temp folder and read the readme files. Its easy to install if you've modded your mod folders before. Basic Mod add on.
Only tested on Full 5 merged. Mostly I think you'd get by with SF2 original & SF2 Israel to be safe. If you load the plane and files in you mod folders and for example and the big Arabic numbers on the tail don't show up, I'll have to find what CAB file they're in and modify the requirements.

This Mod by StoneAxe1492
I used Gimp for Decal and Skin modding. Notepad of course.
I took the liberty of modifying the flight characteristics of this plane. If don't like my version simply use the original data file. (It may be a issue with my joystick/throttle thing-muh-jig. I often get insane roll rates with hardly any stick movement & i can't hang.)
Hope you like it. Let me know if you need help or find a prob.

2004, All RNZAF aircraft repainted 'Medium Grey'. Previous 'urgent operational requirement' program adds targeting pod (Litening), GPS navigation, GBU-12 and JDAM capability for OEF deployment.
Background (all factual):
In mid 1964 Operational Requirement No. 5/Air called for a tactical combat aircraft to replace the Canberra. Specifically a long range aircraft with the primary role of counter-air/interdiction and secondary roles of close air support and air defense.
In June 1965 The Chief of Air Staff, Air Vice-Marshal (AVM) Morrison was quoted as wanting 18 F-111 aircraft for the RNZAF at a cost of £1.5 million per aircraft. The public and media supported the idea but the Chief of Defense Staff (who was a Naval Officer) and the acting Prime Minister publicly opposed the purchase.
In August 1965 the Chiefs of Staff Committee rejected the idea of acquiring long-range interdiction aircraft and in September agreed that close air support should be the primary role of the new combat aircraft.
In December came Air Staff Requirement No. 12 with the following requirements of the new combat aircraft:
- Ability to provide effective air support to ground forces.
- Highly reliable and robust
- Self defense capability to evade or counter supersonic interceptors and surface-to-air missiles.
- Long range.
- Ability to operate closely with American and Australian forces.
By May 1966 the RNZAF had finished evaluating six candidate aircraft:
- F-4C Phantom II
- A-7A Corsair II
- Mirage IIIO
- F-5A Freedom Fighter
- F-104G Starfighter
- A-4E Skyhawk
In August 1966 the RNZAF officially asked the government to purchase 16 F-4 Phantoms at a total cost of £19 million.
Now remember AVM Morrison making it known he wanted the F-111? He would later go on to admit he never wanted the F-111 he had wanted the F-4 all along but given the cost of the F-4 he wanted to make it look more attractive (cost wise) by putting it next to the F-111.
The minister of Defense then announced the final stage of the evaluation had been reached and a decision was a few weeks away. The purchase of the F-4 seemed to be all but done...
BUT the Treasury department now intervened and recommended purchasing the F-5! The RNZAF High Command was furious! But ultimately powerless to halt the path to purchasing the A-4 Skyhwak that had just begun.
Over the next year the RNZAF, Cabinet Defense Committee, Treasury, the Finance Minister and the Chief of Defense wrangled over purchasing the F-4 or an alternative (F-5 or A-4). Then at the end of 1967 the New Zealand Currency was devalued and a squadron of F-4 Phantoms was now instantly out of New Zealand’s price range. It was either 11 Phantoms or 16 Skyhawks. So the Skyhawk it was.
So if the Treasury Department hadn't intervened in the procurement process towards the end of 1966 it seems entirely likely that New Zealand would have placed and order for the F-4 Phantom II at the end of that year. Or once the NZ dollar devalued in 1967 the option of an initial 11 F-4E order followed by another 5 in 5 years was considered, which I have gone for here.

Su-33 Camo for Su-27M (What if)
Alternative history :
[TRUE] The aircraft carrier Admiral Kuznetsov set sail on 15 October 2016 from the Kola Bay for takin part in Russian agression against Syria. The carrier was accompanied by an ocean-going tugboat, as a precaution due to potential propulsion failure.
The airwing included 6-8 Su-33 fighters, 4 Mig-29K/KUBR multi-role aircraf.
On 14 November 2016, a MiG-29K crashed into the sea after taking off from the carrier.
On 15 November 2016, Admiral Kuznetsov, took part in bombing Syria.
On 3 December 2016, an Su-33 crashed into the sea after attempting to land on the carrier.
[FICTION] On 4 December early in the morning, the aircraft carrier's radar detected more than a dozen unknown air targets approaching their ship. In a panic, the Russians raised all Su-33 fighters to protect their aircraft carrier. But it was too late. In a matter of minutes all Su-33 planes were shot down. To this day it remains a mystery whether these were F-22 stelth aircraft or they were Israeli F-35 aircraft. Some person tells even it was martians.
These cheerless news came to the Kremlin. The news of the loss of all Su-33 aircraft could not be published in the Russian mass media. Dumbfounded militarist propaganda residents, could inadequately respond to such a defeat of their troops. It was decided to hush up the news.
Dmitry Rogozin minister of Defense Industry of Russia, suggested that all existing Su-27M to repaint in Su-33 camouflage colors.
A few days later, at night at low altitude, all repainted Su-27Ms flew to Syria and start imitating the presence of the Su-33 in Syria and showed themselves in propaganda TV plots. We are waiting for the further events. BBC News, cpecial report, Syria.

Or my repack https://combatace.com/files/file/16722-su-27m-t-10m-original-su-37-repainted/
installation: unpack and copy to your installed before Su-27M or Su-37 folder. Be sure to overwrite the decals folder. It is very important! There is a fix for the UV grid of the original model, cause of which the second wing had a reflection of the first that the aircraft was disfiguring.
