  1. Dassault/FMA Rafale EA-2/DA

    BACKSTORY: 
    In 2014, with the Mirage retirement in mind, Argentina started a competition to decide wich plane was going to replace it in the near future. Due to the strategic position of the country and the abundance of resources, the contest ended up having various options: the F/A-18E/F, the Tejas MK1 and MK2, the Gripen, the Su-30, the MiG-35, the J-10CE and the Rafale, all with unique variants to fill the needs of the Argentinian Air Force.
    The chosen plane was the Rafale. The Argentinian Ministry of Defence agreed on 18 planes, 12 Rafale EA-2s and 4 Rafale DAs. The Rafale EA-2 is an advanced variant of the Rafale F4, equipped with AESA radar and Conformal Fuel Tanks. It can fire the MBDA MICA missiles, along with some russian ordenance. This is because Dassault, Argentina and Russia agreed to replace the british parts with russian parts in the exchange of Argentina buying and equipping the Rafale with russian precise guided munitions.
    The Argentinian Rafale participated in various exercises with NATO and eastern side countries, like the "ECOAS I", where the Argentinian pilots showed its great ability to fly low, "sinking" the USS George Bush.
    Special thanks to JAT81500, for releasing the Dassault Rafale F4,  wich is used as the Dassault Rafale EA-2
    And ThirdWire, for this amazing sim, that I love and play almost everyday...

    I hope you enjoy this mod as much as I do.
    Have a good flight!
    Good hunting!

  2. Lockheed/FMA IA-16 "Serpiente"

    Lockheed/FMA IA-16 Serpiente:
    BACKSTORY:
    The year is 1998. Argentina starts showing its newly acquired A-4AR Fightinghawk, modernized to replace the old A-4Bs. While this was happening, it was clear that the Mirages had to be retired anywhere in a near future. So, the Fabrica Militar de Aviones, also called FMA, joins Lockheed Martin to develop a multirole, supersonic fighter, to fill the space that the Mirage will no longer cover. The result of this alliance is the IA-16 Serpiente, a multirole, supersonic and highly capable aircraft, developed from the F-16. The Serpiente is very similar to the Japanese F-2, but they have some differences that make them unique: while the F-2 has a boom receptor for air refueling, the Serpiente has a fuel probe, being capable of refueling from the KC-130 owned by the FAA. The avionics and a lot of parts from the plane itself are made in Argentina, and after 2008, the plane could be made in Argentinian soil without importing a single manufactured piece. The first plane flew in 2002, and was introduced in the FAA in the year 2005. The plane is equipped with Python 5 and AMRAAM missiles. It also can be equipped with AIM-9Xs and, due to the open architecture, it can be equipped with MICA and Meteor missiles. In 2007, Argentina recieved a first batch of 24 Serpientes, with 12 going to the 5th Fighter Group and the other 12 to the 6th Fighter Group, and in 2015, with the retirement of the Mirages and Neshers, another 24 IA-16 Serpiente Block 2 were ordered, plus the modernization of the existing ones to the Block 1+ standard, matching the avionics of the upcoming versions. The nacionalization of the whole assembly proccess of the plane has opened the opportunity for exports, being offered to small countries, like Uruguay, Paraguay and El Salvador. These 3 countries allegedly planned to buy 12 units of the Serpiente each one, but pressure from the US (even though the Serpiente is a US derived product) made them decline the offer. The Serpiente has seen service in the FAA for 15 years now, and is expected to surpass 2040. The future of this plane looks bright, with several modifications planned for the next year, like a radar-absorbing painting, to have semi-stealth capabilities (coming probably next update).
    Special thanks to: 
    Dels, the creator of the F-2.
    EricJ, who uploaded the F/A-18A and its HUD, which I used for this mod.
    SandMartin, who helped me to remake the cabin.
    ValAstur, who inspired me to make this mod, and for the Nachash, the starting point of this.
    Eagle114th, for the screenshots, which he took while I was isolated, and for taking the time to test  everything (he tested absolutely EVERYTHING and helped me correct it)
    ThirdWire, for this awesome sim.
    CONTENTS:
    Lockheed/FMA IA-16 Serpiente and its decals.
    Rafael Python 5 and Hughes AIM-120-AR, the missiles of this plane.
    Fuel tanks.
    Pilot and refuel probe.
    NOTES: 
    The cabin is bugged, and we couldn't fix it. We corrected the position of the seat, but some things dissapeared, as far as I know, the LOD of the cabin is bugged.

  3. Chengdu J-10AR "Ehécatl"

    Chengdu J-10A-AR "Ehécatl"
    This model is a approximation of how a Chengdu J-10 might look if it was in service with the Argentinian Air Force, being part of the 6to Grupo de Caza y Ataque, belonging to the VI Brigada Aérea. 
    As many of you might know, Argentina is planning to modernize its air force, and one of the jets that has been considered is the J-10, coming along with the JF-17, the MiG-35 and the MiG-29 (I should work on one of those).
    The model, though, is not accurate. The offer made by China considers the J-10CE, an export version of the J-10C.
    This plane can carry Chinese and Russian weapons, and Argentinian Mk-series bombs.
    The aircraft will appear on the list as "Chengdu J-10A-AR "Ehécatl".
    The adding of the -AR is just a formality.
    To install it, you will need to copy and paste the folders in your SF2 mod folder, following basic mod installation proccess.
    In the folder >>J10AR-Final Version<< you will find 4 folders. These are:
    Aircraft >> J-10A
    Decals >> J-10A
    Flight >> FLIGHTENGINE.INI
    Weapons >> KometaTankC // KometaTankW
    Special thanks to:
    Erwin_Hans and InSky, for the fantastic model they made of the Dragon...
    Franconinja14, who made the skin for the plane...
    Stipe, for the MiG-29M3 "Hyper Fulcrum" and its HUD, that I used for this mod...
    Spinners, for the Kometa and its tanks, wich I use in this mod...
    Eagle114th, for the screenshots, giving me tips and helping with everything (this guy is a genius)...
    And ThirdWire, for this amazing sim, that I love and play almost everyday...

    I hope you enjoy this mod as much as I do.
    Have a good flight!
