Simple skin pack with a few sets of skins for Navy versions of A-7 Corsair II - A/B/C/E and E_74.

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

It is designed for and works only in SF2 series.

To run this mod you need also access to TW lod files from SF2 Series.

 *.ini files for loadout, avionics, cockpit, or aircraft data - not included.

Skins cover the years 1970-1982 for the Atlantic and Pacific Fleet.  The pack did not cover Vietnam War CVW deployments.

Pack contains skins and decals. I have included also decals from the upcoming pack for low-viz SLUF. This way it is simpler for me, all decals are in one place, save time, and will not harm anything.

Royal Netherlands Air Force NF-5A Freedom Fighter Volume II VERSION 1.0

We are proud to present the NF-5A RNLAF, the Canadair variant of the Northrop F-5a, one of the most enduring American military aircraft designs ever produced during the Cold War period. The Canadair NF-5A was essentially similar to the Canadian AF CF-5 but introduced several modifications, the most important being the more powerful J-85Can-15 engines, Doppler radar navigation system, arrestor hook, two large split air intake doors aft of the main wing trailing edge on both sides of the fuselage to provide extra air to the engines (later also used for F-5E type),  and provision to carry the larger 275 gallon under-wing fuel tanks.  The aircraft also featured maneuvering leading-edge flaps, a strengthened windscreen, and was the only F-5a to operate a two-position nose gear.
It has been our goal to provide to the simmer a highly detailed model and texture base which preserve the beautiful lines of this aircraft; and to engineer flight model files and a cockpit/gauge file-set that are authentic and add to the immersion of the flying experience within the Strike Fighters 2 series.

I'm proud to announce the second official release of Operation Desert Storm: 30th Anniversary Edition, now reaching version 0.9.5.
Six months have passed since the first release (v0.9.0) of January 16th 2021, six months in which the development team did not rest, producing a wealth of tweaks, bug fixes and exclusive, brand new additions to this comprehensive package. Unwanted bugs found their way in the January release, due to time constraints and the team wanting to meet the deadline in time for the 30th anniversary of this historic operation. Now we offer a much more refined and expanded experience, with quality of life improvements and welcome bonuses. Be sure to read the massive (albeit summarized) change log (Operation Desert Storm: 30th Anniversary Edition - Early Access) to learn more about all of the efforts that went into this new release.


The package is free for download to all official Modders and Subscribers of the site. Those whose 2021 6-month subscription plans expired have been granted access to the package at no extra cost. Users who acquired the mod via a 1-month subscription plan will have to renew it for access to this brand new release. CombatACE.com admins thank you for your support towards the monthly costs of the site.

About This File
The breifing screens do not work with this add on. The add on is built for campaign play. Single missions will work 90% of the time depending on the plane used. This is due to some terrain issues, however campaign mode should work flawlessly.
