F-4D Phantom II in ANG Service.


This is a skin/decal set for Phabulous Phantom. 

Basic modding skills are required to run this mod.  (copy/paste, mod folder structure etc.) 

Pack contains skins and decals representing all F-4D users amid Air National Guard units. Skins are made for stock F-4D_78. F-4D was used between 1977 -1990 in ANG and these skins are fitting in 13 years of service. 

Mostly all serial numbers are correct for specific dates and units. If you will find some errors please feel free to send correction notes.

No ini files for this as this is only skin sets. Just simply add skin folders to your favorite F-4D_78. Or create a new, specific one for ANG use. 

You will find that some aircraft wear kill marks as in real life. If you want to have your own kill marks you have to modify decal.ini file. 

To fully enjoy this skin set you need to have ThirdWire F-4D_78. 

 

All skins are done in 2048x2048 based on Sundowners and Ravenclaw's work. 

Brand new Bump files in 2048x2048.

All decals made by me. 

Enjoy.

Regards.

Jarek Hereda

      View File [Fictional] McDonnell Douglas F-4S 'COAN' for STRIKE FIGHTERS 2
      McDonnell Douglas F-4S 'COAN' for STRIKE FIGHTERS 2
      This is a simple mod of the F-4S by 'The Mirage Factory' to give a fictional Phantom F-4S 'COAN' as it might have appeared in service with the Comando de Aviación Naval Argentina during the 1980-2010 timeline. Also included are three fictional Argentine aircraft carriers; the ARA Bernardino Rivadavia (V-3), the ARA Hippolyte Bouchard (V-4) and the ARA Guillermo Brown (V-5).

      INSTRUCTIONS
      1. From the AIRCRAFT folder drag and drop the F-4S_COAN folder into your Aircraft folder.
      2. From the DECALS folder drag and drop the F-4S_COAN folder into your Decals folder.
      3. From the GROUND OBJECTS folder drag and drop all three folders into your Ground Objects folder.*
      4. From the PILOTS folder drag and drop the PILOT_COAN into your Pilots folder.
      5. From the WEAPONS folder drag and drop both folders into your Weapons folder.
      * You'll really need to add 'ArgentineNavy' to the limited nations section of the ICELANDNA_NATIONS data.ini (which you'll need to extract). Doing this yourself will allow you to align the Argentine Navy to a 'colour' of your choice.

      CREDITS
      As always, thanks to Third Wire for a great little game/sim.
      Special thanks to 'The Mirage Factory' for permission to modify the F-4S and also to Sundowner for the F-4S templates which really helped in adapting the Third Wire F-4J skins to fit.
      Thanks to Ravenclaw007 for the AM39 Exocet missile - as soon as I saw the textures I knew who to thank!
      Thanks also to the creator of the AR_BRP_250-Kappa_E bomb. It's been in my install for ages but I honestly don't know who to thank.
      And, finally, thanks to everyone in the wider Third Wire community.

      View File [Fictional] McDonnell Douglas F-4DA for SF2
      McDonnell Douglas F-4DA Phantom (Argentina) for STRIKE FIGHTERS 2 
      This is a simple mod of the stock Third Wire F-4D to create a fictional F-4DA in service with the Argentine Air Force in the 1979-2010 timeline.

      BACKSTORY
      During the early 1960's the Fuerza Aérea Argentina (FAA) began an ambitious plan to replace the F-86F Sabre then in service as their main interceptor-fighter. The British English Electric Lightning was briefly considered but was quickly dismissed on account of it's very short range. The Swedish Saab Draken was successfully evaluated and FAA pilots submitted a very favourable report as was the French Dassault Mirage III and it seemed likely that a decision would be made between these two competing aircraft. However, the end of the Frondizi government in 1962 and the subsequent turmoil over the next few years saw the FAA's plans put on hold but the Israeli's successful use of the Mirage III in the 1967 Six-Day War saw the FAA finally decide on the French aircraft. However negotiations with the French Government came to an abrupt end in May 1968 when Juan Carlos Onganía, fearful of a coup d'état, dismissed the leaders of the Armed Forces and cancelled the Mirage order.
      The 1973 elections (the first general elections for ten years) saw Dr. Hector Cámpora elected as President with a campaign based on a platform of national reconstruction. For the FAA this meant that it's F-86 replacement plans could finally continue but with an aircraft from an unexpected source. Despite the turmoil of Argentina's recent history, the US State Department saw Argentina as a bulwark of anti-Communism in South America and US President Richard Nixon sanctioned the export of 28 ex-USAF F-4D's with deliveries to Grupo 4 de Caza starting in August 1973 and deliveries to Grupo 8 de Caza starting in January 1974. The 1976 US Presidential elections saw incoming President Jimmy Carter highlight issues of human rights and eventually secure a congressional cutoff of all US arms transfers to Argentina and the FAA found it increasingly hard to support Phantom operations except by clandestine support. The FAA used the Phantom during the 1982 Guerra de las Malvinas as a long-range strike aircraft but the FAA's lack of aerial refueling capability and the long distance from their bases dramatically reduced their ability. After 1982 the FAA's Phantom force was increasingly supported by Israel Aircraft Industries and although no additional aircraft could be sourced the remaining 17 aircraft remained in service until 2010.

      INSTRUCTIONS
      1. From the AIRCRAFT folder drag and drop the F-4DA folder into your Aircraft folder.
      2. From the DECALS folder drag and drop the F-4DA folder into your Decals folder.
      That's it! For Argentine weapons I recommend you get them from the excellent SF2 Falklands Mod (Redux) by eburger68.
