  1. SF2 Vichy French Air Force, Tiger Moth Skin UPgrade

    SF2 Vichy French Air Force, Tiger Moth Skin UPgrade    2/25/2020
     -- Something for Fun --
    = For SF2 Any and All=
    A small upgrade for LloydNB's Vichy French Tigermoth, as used in Indochina in the early 1940s. It is, obviously, for use on RussoUK's DH Tigermoth. The aircraft itself is available at the following URL:
    https://combatace.com/files/file/14081-sf2-ww2-dh-tigermoth-by-russouk/
    This is a very simple mod; just a quickie repaint to remove the original painted on fuselage number, and the addition of 18 "plane-in-squad" numbers. No historical accuracy is claimed, as I've only found one image of the aircraft, and it had the number 5 on it.
    As said above, something just for fun!
    Enjoy!

  2. SF2 WW2 ETO Bristol Blenheim Mk.IV Skin Pak

    SF2 WW2 ETO Bristol Blenheim Mk.IV Skin Pak (DAT)
     
    -- Something for the WW2 ETO players --
    = For SF2 ONLY, Full-5 Merged (Reccomended/Preferred) =
     
    This pack contains 2 new skins for the Dev A-Team's Bristol Blenhiem Mk.4.
    *Note you MUST have access to the DAT downloads to get the aircraft. If you do not have access, do NOT download this mod, as you'll be unable to make use of it.*
     
    New skins, from a (not so fantastic) Home Grown Template �, now give you standard RAF European Day Scheme camo from the 1940-late 41 time frame. The aircraft is finished in the standard Light Earth/Dark Green with Sky Unders.
     
    Squadrons represented:
     
    No. 105 (code GB)
    No. 107 (code OM)
     
    Skins remain in their bmp format (and are a bit on the LARGE size -2048x). End users that wish to may convert to jpg or resize as necessary. Decal randomization is set to TRUE. Both skins make use of a 'pool' of plane-in-group letters and serial numbers. Serials ARE historiclly accurate for the Mk.IV, but represent no particular unit.
    Also included, never before released Hangar and Loading screens.
     
    REMINDER: there is nothing in here but skin maps, decals and their associated inis. You'll need the aircraft itself from the DAT downloads, either the seperate aircraft, or the one in the Wings Over Africa all-inclusive mod.
     
    As always, fairly easy to follow, detailed install instructions are included. Please READ them.
     
    Good Hunting!!

  3. Nigerian Air Force Tiger Moth

    Nigerian Air Force Tiger Moth skin for SF, WoV, WoE
     
    This is a re-skin of RussoUK's excellent little Tiger Moth into those used (???) by the Nigerian Air Force, in their never ending battle for freedom against the aggressors from it's evil neighbor, Togo
    (also reccomended is the weapons modification pak for the Moth available both here at CA and my site)
     
    This little gem stems from the never ending, good natured ribbing amongst many of us that follow El Presedentie-for-Life, Sparkomatic.
    I'd actually made, and finished this, over a year ago, and promptly forgot about it.
    But with renewed intrest in the Nigerian money-schemes (as posted at C5s), I realized it was time for it's release.

  4. Grumman TBF/TBM Avenger & FAA Tarpon Update/Upgrade Pak

    Grumman TBF/TBM Avenger & FAA Tarpon Update/Upgrade Pak
    -For the Dev A-Teams Avenger/Tarpons-
     
    For SF2, Any and All (full 4/5 Merged Prefered)
     
    *Note: may also for in 1stGen SF/Wo* WW2 Installs. This has NOT been tested!*
     
    *Note Deux: You =MUST= have the DATs original Avengers to apply this pak to!! If you do not or cannot access those downloads, -DO NOT DOWNLOAD THIS MOD- as you'll be unable to use it!!!
     
    This pack is a complitation of several other mod packs I've released for the Avenger ... it replaces any and all previous versions.
     
    Some relatively minor tweeks for the Dev A-Team Avenger/Tarpon WW2 carrier based torpedo bomber.
     
    Ini tweeks add my corrected lighting, switch the canopy and wingfold to manual animation keys (wings: shift/9 canopy: Shift/0 -the Usual Suspects). Those equipped with ASV or Yagi radars get a new avionics ini for the surface-search radar. Most other things remain pretty
    unchanged.
    All decal inis have been corrected for the proper pathways, and decal randomization is set to TRUE.
    New textureset & decal inis are included for those skins originally created by Gramps, as are a couple of new skin bmps that add the 'visible internal bulkheads' when the wings are folded.
    The new SF2NA carrier statements HAVE been added, but until we get all the terrains have been upgraded with the new/correct/proper water bmps, it may be a moot point. However, in campaigns when carrier-based, they should work fine.
    New Userlist.inis have also been created & supplied. It may not contain all users, as it's basiclly designed for USN/USMC usage. RNZAF can be added easily; if there's a skin for them!
     
    To soften that blow, I've done up a new skin for the TBM-3; VT-82 from USS Bennington in G system markings.
     
    To make things easier (and to pad the download), I've included ALL the skin and decal sets previously seen in the 1stGen downloads, or on my recently closed site that I've done. The readme for that is pak is included, just for historical purpses, as it has some "What If' background.
     
    As always, fairly easy to follow, yet detailed install instructions are included. Please read them! As well as the usual "Notes" section.
     
    Good Hunting!

  6. SF2 P-47D-40 Thunderbolt Upgrade/Update Pack

    SF2 P-47D-40 Thunderbolt Upgrade/Update Pack       2/5/2020
    -For SF2, Any and All (Full 5 Merged Reccomended)
    This is a small update for the P-47D-40 Thunderbolts used in the last year of WW2, and into the Post-War Era. It is designed for use on the -40 Jug that Cocas and I built. You can find the full aircraft at the following URL:
    https://combatace.com/files/file/16542-sf2-ww2-eto-p-47d-40-late/
    The package is built to just "drop in" over the existing inis (overwrite), and included updated data, loadout and user lists to futher reflect the P-47Ds use in the Post-War world. Loadout changes add "date switched" CAS/AR loads from WW2s 'Triple Bazooka' to HVAR rockets. All weapons are included. It has been tested in both the WW2 and Post-War environments. 
    Several new or updated skins are also included:
    525th FBS ~1947/49 as part of the Occupation Forces in Germany
    1º Grupo de Caca, Brazilian AF, in their post-war (1946-57) scheme 
    GC II/20 "Ouarsenis" Armée de l'Air as seen/used in Algeria in the late 1950s
    All aircraft are in NMF and With the exception of painted on special squadron or national markings, all others are decals. Decal Randomization is TRUE. The Serials on the FAB Jug are 100% historically correct. The AdA skin can be used as a basis for other units that served in Algeria (or France) during the post-war timeframe.  All 3 new skins have their own Hangar Screens.
    As is always reccomended, unzip to a temp folder or your desktop to give easy access to the rest of this readme for it's install instructions. The "Notes" section has more information on proper usage of these Post-War skins. Please =READ= them!!
    Happy Landings!

  7. SF2 RA-5C Vigilante Pack v.2

    SF2 RA-5C Vigilante Pack v.2       9/27/2019
    -For SF2, Any and All (Full 4/5 Merged Reccomended)
    This is a revamp of Julhiem's RA-5C "Vigilante" carrier based recon aircraft. It has has several updates/upgrades/changes to make it more SF2 compliant. This is the complete aircraft, with everything included. If you have any earlier version(s) it is suggested you delete BOTH the aircaft and decals subfolders, as this version replaces them it toto. Or at least, remove or store them elsewhere.
    The aircraft comes with 6 skins, including the original released single skin. These skins are:
    RVAH-1 'Smokin' Tigers (USS Independence 1965, CVW-7, SEA, first combat cruise)
    RVAH-5 'Savage Sons' (USS Ranger CVW? 19??) **
    RVAH-6 'Fleurs' (USS Kittyhawk 1971, CVW-11 SEA)
    RVAH-7 'Peacemakers' (USS Ranger, 1978/79, WesPac, Squadron's Final Cruise)
    RVAH-9 'Hoot Owls' (USS Saratoga 1967, CVW-3 Med cruise)
    RVAH-11 'Checkertails' (USS constellation, CVW-9 SEA 1971/72)
    **= original release skin
    Almost all markings are decals, excepting some painted-on squadron insignia. Serial/BuNums are 100% historically accurate (by unit) Decal randomization is TRUE. Skins remain in bmp format, as they're not that large. The SF2 "date switch" is active.
    The canopy opens/closes with the Standard Animation Keystroke (tm), Shift/0 (zero).
    As is always reccomended, unzip to a temp folder or your desktop to give easy access to the rest of this readme for it's install instructions. See "Notes" for list of changes. 
    If there's anything missing or "off", please let me know and I'll try to find it. This mod got lost in the shuffle with several other large projects.

    Happy Landings!

  8. SF2 VF-114 F-4B (65) Phantom Skin/Decal Pack by Mytai

    SF2 VF-114 F-4B (65) Phantom Skin/Decal Pack by Mytai         9/4/2019
    = For SF2 (Any & All, Full-5 Merged Prefered) and/or SF2:V =
    *Can be used in any install that has access to the F-4B_65 which is stock in all merged installs, excepting SF2:I (well, actually it's probably there as well!). 
    This a new build of Mytai01's 1stGen skin for VF-114 Aardvarks durning 1965/66 Southeast Asia cruise about USS Kittyhawk as part of CVW-11 (tail code NH). This is within the time frame of the camo experiments the USN was conduction, as many of the aircraft aboard were using this 2-tone green camo. Records seem to indicate VF-114 did not. The aircraft remains in the standard Gull Gray/White scheme. With this skin set, you should have all the strike/fighter/attack aircraft of CVW-11 for this cruise.
    The skin is in jpg format, 2048x, from Sundowner's templates. Mytai's original decal have been 'refershed' to remove any oddites or edge 'ghosting'. Decal randomization is TRUE.  Also included, within the skin folder, are all of Mytai's original research material that came with the 1stGen Package. This includes photos and other text files.
    Also included are slightly modified data and loadout ini that correct a few little faults. Wingfold and canopy are now manually activated, using the Standard Animations Keystrokes (tm); shift/9 for wings, shift/0 (zero) for canopy. Lighting has been tweeked so the wing lights follow the wing when folding/unfolding. A landing light and the 3 approach lights have also been added (see "Notes" for more details).
    When in-game, on the Loadout Screen, on the skin selection dropdown you'll see:
    VF-114 Aardvarks 65 (Mytai)
    As the Aardvarks are a unit listed in the stock squadron list ini, decals are set to make the displayed name active.
    As always, fairly easy to follow, detailed install instructions are included. So, please read them ....

  9. SF2 A-4C(65) VA-113 'Stingers' Camo Skin Pack

    SF2 A-4C(65) VA-113 'Stingers' Camo Skin Pack             9/4/2019
    -For SF2, Any and All (Full Merged Reccomended)
    This is a new skin for the A-4C_65 Skyhawk, representing VA-113 "Stingers" during their Oct 1965-June 1966 deployment in South East Asia aboard USS Kitty Hawk. They were painted in an experimental 2-tone green camoflague, as were many other aircraft of CVW-11 at this time.
    The skin is in jpg format, in 2048x, from Nyghtfall's templates. 12 95% historically accurate Bunum decals are included. Decal randomization is TRUE. On the number list, those marked with a star (*) represent a combat or operational loss. The single number marked with the cross (+) is  "best guess", as the squadron listing did =NOT= have a BuNum for A/C 305. The SF2 Date switch is NOT used; you will have to select this skin for each member of you flight. 
    When in-game, on the aircraft selection drop down, Skin selection window you'll see:
    VA-113 (Camo 1965-66)
    As is always reccomended, unzip to a temp folder or your desktop to give easy access to the rest of this readme for it's install instructions.

  10. SF2 F-4G(B) USN Pack

    SF2 F-4G(B) USN Pack              8/28/2019
    -For SF2, Any and All (Full Merged Reccomended)
    This is a NEW aircraft, the F-4G(B) for the US Navy. There were F-4Bs modified with a automatic carrier landing system during their Oct 1965-June 1966 deployment in South East Asia aboard USS Kitty Hawk. They were painted in an experimental green camoflauge, as were many other aircraft of CVW-11 in this time frame.
    Once upon a time, I know we had this aircraft for 1stGen SF, but have been unable to locate it. So, I rebuilt it, and now present it you all to enjoy. This is a complete aircraft, based off the F-4B_65, so make use you have this bird in your inventory. This aircraft uses all stock 3w items.
    The skin is in jpg format, in 2048x, from Sundowner's templates. 12 100% historically accurate Bunum decals are included. Decal randomization is TRUE. This aircraft is given a full year's operational time frame, "1965-1966" in the data ini, even if not historically correct (read: easier). New, aircraft specific hangar and loading screens are provided.
    Is should be noted, this mod was started in 2011, and got lost. I do NOT remember who created the original skin I worked from, or the decals (which have been refreshed to remove ghosting around the edges), So I cannot take full credit for this mod (see "Notes" for more speculations).
    When in-game, on the aircraft selection drop down, you'll see:
    F-4G(B) Phantom II (USN)
    This will differentiate it from the USAF F-4G Wild Weasel, and make sure you know it's a Navy bird.
    As is always reccomended, unzip to a temp folder or your desktop to give easy access to the rest of this readme for it's install instructions.

  11. Douglas EB-66C Destroyer (Ver 2)

    Douglas EB-66C Destroyer Update Pak  (Ver.2)                          8/16/2019
    = For SF2, Any & All =
    This is an update/upgrade/Remod of my 2013 pack. This is considered to be "version 2.0" of the EB-66C Destroyer ELINT/Escort Jammer aircraft. It it designed to replace, in total the earlier package from August 2013. If you have the original pack, you are instructed to delete it completly (aircraft, decals, and all), as this one has some major imporvements.
    This remod pack contains 2 skins:
    41st TEWS, 355th TFW, PACAF, Takhli RTAFB, mid-60s thru 1974-ish (RC tail code)
    39th TEWS, 36th TFW, USAFE, Spangdahelm AB 1969-73 (JN tail code)
    Both are new, and are (hopefully!) in the correct SEA 3-tone camoflague colors. 
    All NEW replacement serial number decals were created. Both skins use a pool of 36 100% historical serial numbers. As only 36 of these aircraft were built (in one block of 30 and a second of 6) it was a easy job. While totaly accurate in nature, the 36 numbers are not representative of individual aircraft of any unit or squadrons that used the EB-66C (other than by random happenstance). Decal randomization is TRUE.
    As with the other B-66 mods, a heavily edited cockpit designed to 'fit' within the existing canopy framing is included. Avionics have been upgraded with new jammers, chaff dispensers, and so forth. This aircraft carries =NO= offensive weapons, or defensive guns. FLY ACCORDINGLY!!! A small modification to the data ini also allows for carrying external jammer pods & chaff dispensers in place of the drop tanks.
    As always, fairly easy to follow, yet detailed install instructions are included. Please read them! See "Change Log" in the Notes section for a full-ish list of what's been, well, changed!
    Happy SAM Dodging!!

  12. SF2 Douglas RB-66C & WB-66D Destroyer Update Pak

    Douglas RB-66C & WB-66D Destroyer Update Pak                      8/12/2019
    = For SF2, Any & All =
    This package contains 2 of Bunyap's 1stGen aircraft brought up to a more SF2-ish
    standard. Also, they seemed to be missing from the SF2 downloads, and I thought
    it was time to bring them back. They are the:
    RB-66C Destroyer (Recon & ELINT) aircraft
    WB-66D Destroyer (Weather Recon, ELINT) aircraft
    The units/skins provided herein are:
    RB-66C:
    42nd TRS, 10th TRW (USAFE)
    19th TRS, 66th TRW (USAFE)
    WB-66D: 
    9th TRS, 363rd TRW (ConUS+)
    All markings are decals, excepting the 42nd tailfin flash. All serial and buzz
    number decals (30 for the RB & 36 for the WB) are 100% historicaly correct. They
    represent the full production runs for =BOTH= aircraft. The 2 skins for the RB
    use the same pool of decals. A new Hi-Rez replacement skins were created from
    HGBN's templates. The skins are in jpg format. As with the B-66 and EB-66, a
    highly modified cockpit is supplied to 'fit' within the visible model.
    As always, fairly easy to follow, yet detailed install instructions are
    included. Please read them! See "change List" in Notes for what's been
    modified/changed/adjusted.

  13. SF2 OV-1A Bronco, Remod Pack

    SF2 OV-1A Bronco, Remod Pack       7/27/2019
    -For SF2, Any and All (Full Merged Reccomended)
    This is an remod of the North American OV-10A Bronco FAC and light attack aircraft, previously available. While there are still several issues (documented in "Notes"), it is in as good a shape as possible for SF2 without having someone build an entirely new LOD. If you have ANY previous versions, you are STRONGLY advised to back them up or delete them from you Mods folder(s). This includes the aircraft, decals, etc.
    There are 9 skin and decal sets in this package. Skins remain in their original bmp format. Many decals have been refreshed to remove any "ghosting" around their edges. The SF2 "date switch" =IS= active on several skins. Included are the pilot figures, the drop tank and sounds. All weapons used on the aircraft are STOCK 3W items.
    The skins included are:
    USAF:
    20th TASS Overall Gray (1969<)
    19th TASS (USAF Camo1) 
    19th TASS Euro 1 (3-tone Gray/Greens)
    USN:
    VAL-4 "Black Ponies" (1969-72 SEA)
    USMC:
    HMLA-267 (1968-71)
    VMO-2 (1968-1979)
    VMO-2 (Desert Camo)(1990<)
    VMO-6 (1968-77)
    USMC Camo1 (3-tone Gray)
    As is always reccommended, unzip to a temp folder or your desktop to give easy access to the rest of this readme for it's install instructions. Please read the notes section for more information and the change log. USAFMTL's original 2009 readme is included, in the main aircraft folder, for historical purposes.

  14. SF2:V RB-57E Canberra "Patricia Lynn" (Remod)

    SF2 RB-57E Canberra "Patricia Lynn" (Remod)              7/25/2019
    = For SF2:V ( or Any & All SF2s, Full-5 Merged Prefered) =
    *note: this mod was started for a CA member in July, 2018. I just recently found it in my archives. Figured I might as well release it!*
    This is a complete rebuild of Anjundair's B-57E, and an update to Migbuster's RB-57E "Patricia Lynn" package for SF2:V.
    The aircraft has 3 full skin and decal sets; all serial number decals are 100% historically correct. These skins depict the 460th TRW, Det 1 at various times in their deployments to Southeast Asia:
    Natual Metal (1963)
    Night 1 (1966)
    Night 2 (1970)
    The skins use the SF2 'date switch', and marking change as needed as per the year in use. Skins remain in their bitmap format.
    The FM has been rebuild using the stock 3W B-57 as a base. The avionics have been upgraded, and you'll now have a full time LLTV set up. As there is no accurate B-57 cockpit, the F-4B is used as a stand in, due to it having scope to display the radar, TFR and LLTV (yes, we know there actually wasn't one in the front cockpit). This (gaming) aircraft remains fully combat capable, unlike the Real Life (tm) versions. See Notes for more information.
    When in game, you'll see
    RB-57E Canberra (AJ)
    on the aircraft selection dropdown window.The "AJ" credits Ajundair, even though there are no other RB-57s available.
    As always, fairly easy to follow, detailed install instructions are included. So, please read them! If you have any earlier versions of this aircraft mod, it is =HIGHLY= suggested you delete the aircraft and decals folders, as THIS mod replaces everything. End users (tm) might also find the Notes section enlightning and informative.
    Good Hunting!

    ***Note: Found in the Archives!!! This was done and should have been uploaded in early 2018!! But I guess  never got around to doing so for whatever reasons. As I don't use my SF2:V mods folder much, there may be other birds that have been hiding in the hangars. I'll be more careful in checking from now on!! ***

  15. SF2 F-86A Sabre, 1st Fighter Group Skin Pack

    SF2 F-86A Sabre, 1st Fighter group Skin Pack       7/24/2019
    -For SF2, Any and All (Full Merged Recommended)
    This is a NEW skin pack for the F-86A Sabre. It is designed to be used on the F-86A-5 available from SF2 KAW Sabres Pack. The Sabre(s) are to be found at the following URL:
    https://combatace.com/files/file/13604-sf2-korean-war-era-f-86-sabre-pak/
    **Be advised! These are for CONUS based Sabres ONLY!! Do =not= use this set within your KAW mods folder! You are advised to have the aircraft installed into another mods folder for proper year-span & theatre usage.**
    This skin set represents the 3 squadrons of the 1st Fighter Group in 1949 when they received the first operational F-86A Sabres at March AFB, and later based George AFB here in California. In the 1950s, the squadrons were dispersed across the US in the Air Defence role, but that's another story. 
    The squadrons are:
    94th FIS "Hat in the Ring"
    27th FIS "Fighting Eagles"
    71st FIS "The Ironmen"
    The skins are in jpg format, and each have 26 all NEW serial number decals.  On the number list for each squadron (individial aircraft serial) drop down, any serial marked with a star (*) has been positively identified as having served in that squadron. Those marked with a cross/plus sign, (+) have been identified as having been assigned to the 1st FG. Those without any markings are generic F-86A serials. It should be noted, due to a lack of a full squadron roster, some of the serials will be repeated across all three squadrons. This could not be helped. ALL markings are decals, expecially the squadron flashes on the fuselage. Other squadron markings, the tail bands, are painted on for each squadron.
    On the skin selection menu, on the Loadout Page, you'll see:
    94th FIS, 1st FG (49-54)
    27th FIS, 1st FG (49-54)
    71st FIS, 1st FG (49-54)
    As the game tends to order things by number in the aircraft main ini (F-86A.ini), you may want to edit them into the order shown above. The 94th was the first operational unit, followed by the 27th, and lastly the 71st.
    The SF2 "date switch" =IS= active on this skin. It will automatically be chosen as the default skin(s) from 1949. As these units were never deployed outside the Continental US, it is NOT reccomended they be used in your KAW install. 
    As is always reccomended, unzip to a temp folder or your desktop to give easy access to the rest of this readme for the install instructions. For more information on the 1st FG, you are encouraged to look up it's long and distinguished history from World War 1 to the Present Day.
    As an added bonus, a one sheet "expliotation" comic-style jpg is enclosed in the main aircraft folder. It's from one of the Hollywood "newspapers" (read: tabloids) of the time. I stumbled across it, and now share it with you all!! 

    Happy Landings!

    SF2 Yak-14 Mare (What If) Pack       7/21/2019
    -For SF2, Any and All (Full 4/5 Merged Reccomended)
    This package contains a "new" aircraft, the Yak-14 (NATO Codename "Mare") advanced jet trainer and light attack aircraft.
    It is based on, and rebuilt from, Pasko's T-33 T-Bird as this was the aircraft (suitably repainted and rebadged) used in the 1949 motion picture "Jet Pilot". This represents the aircaft flown (#58) by Lt. Anna Marladovan (aka Olga Orlief) as played by Janet Leigh.
    The aircraft is finished in "Soviet Dark Green", and all markings are decals. Skin maps remain in lo-rez bitmaps. All marking are decals, and decal Randomization is TRUE. New era specific Soviet pilot figures are included (the newer 'RedAir1' figure). It uses all stock 3W Soviet/WP weapons, but 'new' drop tanks are included. The canopy operates with the Standard Animation Keystroke (tm), Shift/0 (zero).
    On the aircraft selection drop down, you'll see:
    Yak-14 "Mare" (P)
    The (P) designates that this was built from Pasko's old T-33.
    As is always reccomended, unzip to a temp folder or your desktop to give easy access to the rest of this readme for it's install instructions. 
    Please see the "Notes" section for a list of changes to make the aircraft more SF2 compliant
    This one was done purely for fun!! Enjoy it in that spirit!
    Happy Landings!

  17. SF2 P-47N Thunderbolt Post WW2 USAAF/USAF & Air National Guard Skins Pack

    SF2 P-47N Thunderbolt Post WW2 USAAF/USAF & Air National Guard Skins Pack       6/20/2019
    -For SF2, (Full 5 Merged Reccomended)-
    This is a package for post-WW2 and Air National Guard squadrons that flew the P/F-47N Thunderbolt in the years from 1946-1954. These are for V.2 of Russ's N-Jug. All skins are in jpg format.
    You can find Version 2.0 of Russ' P-47N at the following URL:
    https://combatace.com/files/file/13202-p-47n-157z/
    The skins included herein for Regular USAAF/USAF units are:
    37th/48th/49th FS, 14th FG
    99th/100th/301st FS, 477th CG/332nd FG
    The other skins included here are for the Air National Guards of the following states: 
    Connecticut
    Delaware
    Georgia
    Hawaii (Territory of)
    Massachusetts
    Pennsylvania
    Puerto Rico (Territory of)
    The USAAF/USAF had divided the country at the Mississippi River, and had P-51 Mustang ANG units in the west, and P-47D/N units in the east. This is why this set only has Thunderbolts, and all are Eastern States. 
    They are displayed on the Squadron Selection Drop-down window on the Loading Screen, as below:
    37th/48th/49th FS 14FG (1946-48)
    99th/100th/301st FSs 332nd FG (1945-48)
    118th FS, 103rd FG (CT ANG 1946-52)
    142nd FS (DE ANG 1946-54)
    128th FS (GA ANG 1947-51)
    199th FS (HI ANG 1946-54)
    101st FS (MA ANG 1947-51)
    146th FS, 112th FG (PA ANG 1947-51)
    198th FS (PR ANG 1947-55)
    Operational dates are rounded to the closest full year. The SF2 'date switch' is =NOT= used on any of these skins, as they overlap each other. End users (tm) will have to make any changes manually on the Loadout Screen for their flightmates.
    A new data ini, with vastly improved FM and engine parameters (Now! With WEP!) is included. Some minor adjustments in hit boxes, armor, fuel tanks, etc have been performed. The operational years remain the same, so WW2 PTO users need not worry. Just drop it in. A backup copy of the original data ini is included, as a safety measure. It should be noted, Stary's superb Late WW2 cockpit -HIGHLY reccomended for this bird- is NOT included. If there is enough interest, I can add it to this, and upload an update. Or update the basic WW2 aircraft package.
    Other than special squadron markings (color bands and the like) all  markings are decals. Decal randomization is TRUE. Each squadron has 26 serial and 'Buzz number' decals. On the individual aircraft select drop down, for all skins, any marked with a star (*) are been 100% positively identified as having served in that unit. Any not marked should be considered generic in nature as they don't actually represent aircraft from any particular unit, but are late production block P-47Ns. Please see the "Notes" section for information regarding the 332nd & 14th FGs. They are treated as special cases. A reminder -- this package =ONLY= contains American users (USAF & ANG). None of the export customers are included. Nor are any weapons or pilot figures included. You should have them already.
    As is always reccomended, unzip to a temp folder or your desktop to give easy access to the rest of this readme for it's install instructions. As there exists an eariler version of these skins/decals, you will want to delete them or back them up to a different location entirely =BEFORE= installing these. Also, PLEASE read the "Notes" for further explainitory words on hows and whys.

    Happy Landings!

  18. SF2 F-84B Thunderjet, 49th FIS, 14th FG Pack

    SF2 F-84B Thunderjet, 49th FIS, 14th FG Pack       7/7/2019
    -For SF2, Any and All (Full Merged Reccomended)
    This is a NEW aircraft, the Republic F-84B Thunderjet, depicted as when it first became operational in 1947. It it based on (one of) RussoUK's F-84s. It represents aircraft of the 49th FS (JP), 14th FG from 1947 through 1949. The 49th was the first USAF squadron to recieve and deploy the Thunderjet into active service (along with it's sister squadrons the 37th and 48th).They served in the "day and good weather" Air Defense role of the Eastern United states from Dow AFB, Maine.
    The skin is in jpg format, and 26 serial and Buzz numbers decals were created. Decal Randomization is TRUE.  On the number list (individual aircraft serial) drop down, any serials marked with a star (*) has been positively identified as having served in the 49th. The others, while some DID serve in other squadrons of the 14th FG, they could not be identified to any of the 3 squadrons. Others, for the B model, are generic in nature. 
    A NEW late 1940s pilot figure is included, as is the "f84" jet sound. Drop tanks, WW2 era bombs, rockets, etc are NOT. You should have these already.
    On the Aircraft selection dropdown menu you'll see:
    F-84B ThunderJet (RUK)
    (This is to differentiate Russ's T-Jet from the as yet uncompleted FastCargo version; if it every gets done!). 
    As is always reccomended, unzip to a temp folder or your desktop to give easy access to the rest of this readme for it's install instructions.

  19. SF2 P/F-61B Black Widow, 319th F(AW)S Skins Pack Post-WW2

    SF2 P/F-61B Black Widow, 319th F(AW)S Skins Pack       7/2/2019
    -For SF2, (Full 5 Merged Reccomended)-
    This is a new skin & decal set for Veltro2K's P-61 Black Widow Night/All Weather interceptor. 
    This skin represents the 318th Fighter (All Weather) Squadron from 1946-1948. They were (originally) based at Mitchell Field (AFB) Long Island, NY, as part of the newly formed Air Defence Command. They and several other night/all weather and day fighter squadrons were responsible for the defence of the northeastern United States. In 1948, they moved to McChord AFB, Washington, transistioned to F-82 Twin Mustangs, and took on Northwest Air Defense duties.
    The skin is in jpg format. All markings are decals. 26 new P-61B serial and Buzz numbers were created for this mod. The serials ARE for late production block 61Bs, but should be considered generic in nature as they represent no particular aircraft from any specific unit. Decal randomization is TRUE. Included is a hangar screen for this skin, too! The SF2 'date switch' is used to turn on this skin in 1946.
    Also included is a new data and avionics inis. A new more compliant FM has been built, and many engine parameters have been adjusted (NOW! With WEP!!). The avionics ini, given game limitations, should be more in line with the actual workings of the SCR-720 air intercept radar. A backup copy of the data ini is included, for safety's sake. (always back up!!). See "Notes" below for a complete listing, and explainitions.
    You must have the original P-61B from either you WW2 installs or a new download from the following URL to apply this skin set to:
    https://combatace.com/files/file/14739-northrop-p-61-black-widow-pack/
    Remember, this is a POST-war skin. The data ini has operational dates adjusted (corrected) accordingly.  
    As is always reccomended, unzip to a temp folder or your desktop to give easy access to the rest of this readme for it's install instructions. Might want to give the "Notes & Other Nonsense" section a once over, as well! :)
    Good Hunting!

  20. SF2 P-47N Thunderbolt 36th FBS, KAW "What If" Skin Pack

    SF2 P-47N Thunderbolt 36th FBS, KAW "What If" Skins Pack       6/22/2019
    -For SF2, (Full 5 Merged Reccomended)-
    This is a 'What If' skin for the P-47N Thunderbolt by RussoUK. It represents the
    36th FBS, 51st FG if said unit had been equipped with Jugs during the Korean War.
    It is to be applies to V.2 of Russ's Jug. If you don't have it, You can find
    Version 2.0 of Russ' P-47N at the following URL:
    https://combatace.com/files/file/13202-p-47n-157z/
    The aircraft is painted in "silver lacquer" and carries the same style of tail
    markings as seen on their Real Life (tm) F-80C Shooting Stars used in Korea. All
    new serial and buzz number decals were created. The serials, while generic in
    nature, are correct for the late model P-47Ns. Decal randomization is TRUE.  Let it
    be known that the SF2 Date Switch is =NOT= used on this skin*. A new more "chewed
    up looking" damage tga is also included. When in-game, on the Loadout Screen's Skin
    Selection Dropdown window, you'll see:
    36th FBS (What-If, KAW 1950)
    Remember, you'll have to change the skin for all members in your flight.
    Once upon a time, there was a 1stGen version of this aircraft/skin that I did (mid
    2000s???) but it dosen't seem to exist in the CA downloads anymore. So, this is a
    full replacement. If any of you End Users (tm) still have it, you are instructed to
    delete both the original skin and decals.
    As is always reccomended, unzip to a temp folder or your desktop to give easy
    access to the rest of this readme for it's install instructions. Might want to give
    the "Notes & Other Nonsense" section a once over, as well! :)

  22. T-33A Shooting Star, Skin & Ini Pak: Footbal City AF


    T-33A Shooting Star, Football City Air Force, Skin & Ini Pak


     

    -- For SF2, Any and All (also usable in SF/Wo* 1stGens as well) --


     
    Another 'just for fun' aircraft mod, for the universe described in the novel series "The Wingman"
     
    This is a skin/ini package for Pasko's T-33A. It adds the new FBCAF skin, and the inis update a few items closer to SF2 Standards. Included is a new main, data ini, and a new Userlist.ini. A quick note on the userlist - it may not be fully accurate, and may not reflect ALL users.
    The canopy has also been switched to a manual animation key: use Shift/0 to open and close it. All weapons are stock (excepting the use of the F-86 drop tanks for RECON), so none are included. However, the 'newish' cockpit IS. Landing lights have also been added.
     
    As this is NOT a Complete Aircraft Mod, you'll need to have Pasko's T-33A first, of course, before installing this mod. You can get it at the following URLs:
     
    CombatAce:
    http://combatace.com/files/file/1627-lockheed-t-33-shooting-star/
     
    Column5:

    As always, =READ= the enclosed readme for full, detailed instructions. This package has been broken down into the various folders that SF2 needs, to make it a LOT easier to install (read: drag and drop).
    For SF/Wo* users, there's a note for you as well.
    As usual, the expected "Notes and Other Nonsense for extra fun reading.
     
    Now, go watch The Game!!

  23. F-4B Phantom II, VMFA-58 "Wildcards"


    F-4B Phantom II, VMFA-58 "Wildcards" Skin/Decal set (A "What If.." skin)


     

    = For SF2, any/all versions with access to the F-4B Phantom, merged or not =


     
    A complete rebuild of my "What If..." Phantom skin from 2006.
     
    This is a reskinning and redecaling of the stock, plane-jane F-4B (no year suffix), using Sundowner's templates (what a masterpiece!!!). New serial numbers and all new BuNum decals have been created. BuNums ARE 100% accurate, in that they are for F-4Bs. Since this is a fantasy skin ... they're purly there for looks. Many new decals, for crew names have been created and added to the canopy rails (these are characters and production staff from the Space: Above and Beyond TV show, with a few 'just for funs' thrown in).
    What is unusual for me, is the fact that most of the generic national/service markings are painted on, as opposed to my prefrence for decals. This was done to "open up" some meshes for other decals, thereby greating imporving the historical "look", and accuracy (!), of the aircraft.
     
    This skin/decal set is perfectly usable for ANY of the other F-4Bs (F-4B_65 and F-4B_67), and possibly even the F-4J. Renaming of the skin bmps will be required for use on the other aircraft, however, but their mapping is identical (this =HAS= been tested!). See below for more details & instructions.
     
    The skins are 2048x2048, so users with older, slower machines may need to resize them down one step to 1024; expect some detail loss, but they're still quite beautiful, even at the the smaller size.
    NOTE: I've supplied 2 different _1.bmps for use. The one being used right now has the ship name "USS SARATOGA"* above the squadron name. If you do not wish to use that, use the 'no-ship-name_F-4B_1.bmp'. Instructions for switching are in the 'To Install' section below.
     
    Included as well are modified data and loadout inis; the data ini has a new landing light added and the canopy activated via a manual animation key. Use Shift/0 to open and close it. The loadout ini removes the non-existant reconpod,from RECON missions, and replaces it with the 600 gallon tank. All other loads remain stock. The landing gear's RollingRadius has also been adjusted, as I've gotten sick and tired of the 'flat tire' look. The numbers I used can also be used on all the other Phantoms. Other improvements are some additional armor over vital internals. No other changes have been made.
     
    * the SARA was the space carrier The Wildcards was assigned to in the TV show; just keeping continuity <grin>
     
    As always, detailed, step-by-step install instruction are in the enclosed Readme. It's required you actually read it ...
     
    Good Hunting and Happy Landings!

  24. F-20B Tigershark, Quickie Skin/Decal Tweek Pak

    F-20B Tigershark Quickie Skin & Decal UPgrade Pak for SF2
    =For SF2, Any and All (but Full-4 Merged Prefered/Reccomended*)
     
    *Note: at minimum, you =MUST= have SF2:E, as the decals ini makes references/callout pointers to the stock F-15A serials. If you don't meet these minimium criteria, don't D/L this, as you wont be able to use it*
     
    Just a quickie pak with slightly modified skin bmps and decal pointers to use stock in-game decals for Veltro2k's F-20B Tigershark.
    You =MUST= have the F-20B to apply this pak to; it's just a skin, a few decals and a couple of inis for said skin and decals.
     
    It's a rather generic skin, with tail code markings for the 56th FW, at Luke AFB, Arizona. The "LF" code is a new decal, as are the intake warnings. The rescue tags are borrowed from somewhere I can't remember (an F-104???).
     
    As always, fairly easy to follow, detailed install instructions are included. So, please read them!! The usual "Notes" section for other interestering details and stuff, explinations, and general musings and things.
    To make it easier, I'd reccomend (highly!) you unzip this archive first, and read the install instructions BEFORE installing, as without following them, you'll have a conflict.
     
    *note: this is the correct tail code; the one shown in the "What if..." screenshots thread was not*
     
    Happy Landings!

  25. SF2 C-54 Skymaster, Arctic Skins Pack

    SF2 C-54 Skymaster, Arctic Skins Pack       6/7/2019
    - For SF2, Full 5 Merged (Reccomended )
    This contains 2 new skins for Veltro2k's C-54 Skymaster. The aircraft itself can be found at the following url, for those that don't have it already:
    https://combatace.com/files/file/14309-sf2-douglas-c-54-skymaster-by-veltro2k/
    These are somewhat generic skins for those USAF units that flew in the high latatudes (Arctic & Antarctic) during the late 1940s through the mid-1950s. Both aircraft carry the nose and tail Military Air Transport Command (MATS) badges, correct for the time. 
    Both aircraft have the standard arctic red tail and wing easy ID markings.
    "Arctic 1" is in all Natural Metal finish. It is badged for MATS Altantic Division
    "Arctic 2" is in NMF with the post-1955 white anti-heat treatment on the upper cabin. It is badged for MATS Pacific Division. No specific units are represented.
    Both skins use a 'pool' of serial numbers and other markings. Serial numbers are generic in nature, but are for the correct model C-54.  Decal randomization is TRUE for both. The SF2 Date switch is =NOT= used on either skin, as this would mess up the standard switching from NMF to NMF/White on the other skins.
    When in game, on the Loadout Screen, in the skin selection window, you'll see:
    Arctic Red (1948-54)
    Arctic Red (1955<)
    This way, you should be able to select the proper skin for the time frame to be flown in.
    As is always reccomended, unzip to a temp folder or your desktop to give easy access to the rest of this readme for it's install instructions. 

    Happy Landings!
