      Peace Marble IV
      As payment for restraint during the 1991 Gulf War, Israel was provided with 50 surplus USAF F-16A/B's, 
      all Block 10 aircraft. Contrary to earlier deliveries, these aircraft retained their 
      USAF air superiority gray color scheme at that time. The aircraft are called Netz II locally. 
      The first of these (ex- 'DO' 907th FG and 'MI' 127th FW aircraft) were delivered on August 1st, 1994 
      under the Peace Marble IV program. The delivery was completed in late 1994. 

      Install:
      You need the stock F-16A Netz (Strike Fighters 2 Israel)
      extract the 7z file and then drop the objects folder (and all what¬īs in) into your mod folder.
      Go Fly.

      View File [Fictional] Gloster Javelin F.Mk56 'Dhanush'
      Gloster Javelin F.Mk56 for STRIKE FIGHTERS 2
      This is a simple mod of the Veltro2K's superb Gloster Javelin to give a fictional Javelin F.Mk56 'Dhanush' of the Indian Air Force with markings for the equally fictitious No.36 'Trishula' squadron and, in this revised upload, I've also included markings for No.14 Squadron (Bulls).

      BACKSTORY
      The expansion of the Indian Air Force during the mid-1950's saw the planned procurement of the Hawker Hunter fighter-bomber and the English Electric Canberra bomber in substantial quantities but Indian Air Force planners saw the lack of an all-weather interceptor as a problem and urged the Indian Government for increased funds for a suitable aircraft. Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru initially blocked the idea but soon agreed to allow a delegation from the Gloster Aviation Company to make a presentation to the Indian Government and the Chiefs of the Indian Air Force. 
      With the end of the Javelin production line looming Gloster were proposing two new export version of the Javelin Mk8 to India -  the F.Mk55 (Sapphire-enginned) and F.Mk56 (Avon-enginned) versions. Indian Air Force chiefs were very enthusiastic about the possibility of having its three main combat aircraft use the same jet engine (albeit the Javelin's Mk.205 Avon engines had a simple afterburner fitted) and urged Nehru to proceed with the purchase of 80 aircaft but Nehru demanded to meet the Gloster delegation himself to thrash out terms. Gloster cannily sent Graeme Kimmage, who had attended Cambridge University with Nehru, to conduct the negotiations and eventually secure a deal for 80 Javelin F.Mk56's. 
      Entering service with No.36 'Trishula' squadron based at Pathankot in 1958 the Javelins only really became a complete weapon system when mated with the indigenous 'Baan' (Arrow) air-to-air missile which entered service in 1960. From this time the Javelins quickly earned the most appropriate nickname of 'Dhanush' (bow) and saw  limited service over Goa (in the recconnaisance role) but played a major role in the 1965 war with Pakistan claiming several kills including three F-86's, one F-104 and six B-57's. However, with the MiG-21 entering service the Javelin's days were numbered and the Javelin force slowly faded away and by 1975 the popular and legendary 'Dhanush' had gone for good.
       
      INSTRUCTIONS
      1. From the AIRCRAFT folder drag and drop the Javelin56 folder into your Aircraft folder.
      2. From the DECALS folder drag and drop the Javelin56 folder into your Decals folder.
      3. From the WEAPONS folder drag and drop the 'BAAN' and 'TANK300_JAV' folders to your Weapons folder.
      That's it!
