There's just something about the Buccaneer that makes it so.....................sexy. I was lucky enough to see a pair of them racing across the desert in the 1st Gulf War, and I remember thinking they looked like aliens...but man could they move!!!!

Excellent! One can almost smell the burnt AVTUR..

Also hugely nostalgic - did my air movements course in late 1978, culminating with a hands-on practical, moving a Nimrod det from Kinloss to Gib that December.

      View File De Havilland Vampire FB.7
      de Havilland Vampire FB.7 for SF1
      This aircraft mod will create a 'what if' de havilland Vampire FB.7 with colourful post-war markings for No.6, No.8 and No.20 squadrons of the Royal Air Force. 
       
      This is a revised upload that was originally for SF2 but mistakenly got left in the SF1 section when the big SF1/SF2 split happened and as I can't get SFG/WOX to work on my W10 desktop I've not been able to test it. I think I've got the reverse engineering right but the one thing I can't do is sort out the rockets and tanks (it's so much easier in SF2).

      INSTRUCTIONS
      1. Drop the Vampire_FB7 folder into your Aircraft folder.
      That's it!

      CREDITS
      As always, thanks to Third Wire for a great little game/sim.
      Thanks to Pasko for this superb add-on aircraft (one of his many), Gramps for the skins and also Don (C5) for the FM. 
      And, finally, thanks to everyone in the wider Third Wire community.
      Regards

      View File [Fictional] Douglas Dakota C.3 - RAF Desert Camo
      Douglas Dakota C.3 for STRIKE FIGHTERS 2 
      This is a simple mod of the stock C-47A to create a Dakota C.3 in service with the Royal Air Force in the 1948-1967 timeline. Of course, the Royal Air Force were a big user of the Dakota but not in this fictional desert camo scheme which is loosely based on the original Lockheed Hercules C.1 scheme of the very early 1970's (quite an odd scheme for the times). It is flyable and RECON has been added as a secondary role so that you fly low-level recce missions and watch those MiG's stall and crash!

      INSTRUCTIONS
      1. From the AIRCRAFT folder drag and drop the DakotaC3 folder into your Aircraft folder.
      2. From the DECALS folder drag and drop the DakotaC3 folder into your Decals folder.
      That's it!

      CREDITS
      As always, thanks to Third Wire for a great little game/sim.
      Special thanks to gerwin for this lovely desert camo to which I've simply added black undersides and decals.
      Special thanks also to russouk2004 for bringing us the smashing C-47A cockpit.
      And, finally, thanks to everyone in the wider Third Wire community.

      View File [Fictional] McDonnell Douglas Phantom FGR.5
      McDonnell Douglas Phantom FGR.5 for STRIKE FIGHTERS 2
      This is a simple mod of the Third Wire Phantom F-4E_72 to give a 'what if' Phantom FGR.5 fighter with markings for No.23 and No.29 squadrons of the Royal Air Force as they might have appeared at the time of Operation Granby in 'Desert Pink'. Service years have been extended right up to 2010 in case you want to use it in Operation Herrick (from 2001) or Operation Telic (from 2003).

      INSTRUCTIONS
      1. Drop the PhantomFGR5 folder into your Aircraft folder.
      2. From the DECALS folder drag and drop the PhantomFGR5 folder into your Decals folder.
      That's it!
