  1. Black Knights and the Slobberin' Wolfhounds

    Black Knight and the Wolfhounds: F-15C in the 57th FIS and 32d TFS during the 1980s
    this mod represents the F-15C while in service with the 57th FIS at NAS Keflavik and the 32d TFS at Soesterberg AB. it is semi historical, as good images of all the aircraft were harder to come by especially for the later 80s
        Installation
    get original FastCargo aircraft pack from here
       https://combatace.com/files/file/10443-f-15-super-pack-version-24/
    or the viper63a revamp here
       https://combatace.com/files/file/16186-sf2-f-15-eagle-super-pack-redux-2018/
     the skin should work equally well in either. then....
    select either just the F-15C and F-15C_85 aircraft (and associated decal folders if you wish, they arent needed for this mod)
    unzip, drop "Objects" folder into mod folder. should not be any overwriting necessary
        Included
    aircraft skin folders and decal folders for F-15C and F-15C_85 aircraft
        credits
    viper63a:             limited use of decals, skins, much inspiration on how to proceed
    FastCargo:            original model
    daddyairplanes:         minor skin tweeks, revamp of decal layout, tga work
    TK:                 the whole original game
    note: this started as an improvement to my own install on a new system. as i do not usually fly the two seaters, i have no intentions of doing the D models. if interested, i will gladly share the templates so you can create your own.
    thank you for choosing this mod, i hope that you enjoy it

    UPDATE 24 September 2022
    there is a folder with corrected textures if you encounter your F-15C being blank. this issue was not reported with the
    F-15C_85.
    since i revisited this mod, i also change the filepaths for the decal folders, adjusted the decal inis, and added loading
    screens based on the old TW style but specific to the mod.
     
    big thanks to DEVIL11, who brought the texture issue to my attention.

  2. Samurai, Headhunters, Panthers and Foxes: PACAF F-16C/Ds in the 1990s pt 1

                                                  Samurai, Headhunters, Panthers and Foxes
                                                        PACAF F-16C/Ds in the 1990s pt 1
    PACAF started transitioning their F-16 fleet in the very early 1990s from the initial F-16A/B models to the more advanced C/D models. 8th Fighter Wing in Korea and 432d Fighter Wing in Japan received Block 30 versions while the 18th Fighter Squadron in Alaska recieved the Block 40s. These units participated in many of the actions the USAF was involved in; including Deny Flight detachments in USAFE's AOR and no fly zone operations over Iraq.

    Included
    F-16C and D,  Blocks 30 and 40
    various period specific weapons and pilots
    various ini edits to match the era
    new hangar and loading screens

    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    NOTE: The D models have very few serial numbers to each unit. most units only had one or two family models.the best use for these is to add on as a member of a flight of single seaters. The load outs are the same so you will be
    able to load them out easy

  3. Vipers in Reserve F-16s in the USAF Reserves in the 1990s

                                   Vipers in Reserve
                 F-16s in the USAF Reserves in the 1990s
    This mod is to represent the F-16 in AFRES service in the early 1990s. All units except for the 457th FS and 704th FS are included, these units can be found in the Texas Falcons release.
    Units
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
     89th FS "Rhinos"                    F-16A Block 10         Wright Patterson AFB
     93rd FS "Florida Makos"       F-16A/B Block 15    Homestead AFB
                                                       F-16C     Block 32
    302nd FS "Sun Devils"            F-16C/D Block 32    Luke AFB
    465th FS "Okies"                      F-16A Block 10        Tinker AFB
    466th FS "Diamondbacks"     F-16C/D Block 30    Hill AFB
    706th FS "Cajuns"                   F-16C/D Block 30    NAS New Orleans
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Included
    skins for TW based                       F-16A  Block 10
    DA mod Team Viper                      F-16A/B Block 15 OCU, F-16D Block 30
    Team Viper                                     F-16C Blocks 30,32
    ravenclaw_007                              F-16D Block 32
    various period specific weapons and pilots
    various ini edits to match the era
    new hangar and loading screens
    NOTE 1: The B and D models have very few serial numbers to each unit. most units only had one or two family models. the best use for these is to add on as a member of a flight of single seaters rather than as a flight of their own. The loadouts are the same so you will be able to load the same weapons.
    *************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************
    NOTE 2: The F-16A Block 10s do not have corresponding B models at this time. The existing  Generation 1 models in my opinion need more work than is feasible to bring them to SF2 standards. There are entries in the numbers.lst for B models in the event a new Block 10 two seater becomes available.
    ************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************
    LOADING SCREEN NOTE: I will be including various loading screens with the diferent packs available. 
    different load screens will be available within each aircraft ini
    if you already had a different version and prefer that one, simply remove the "//" from the one you want and add to the one without.

  4. Charlie Vipers on Guard Part 3: Block 40/42s in the 90s

                 Charlie Vipers on Guard     Part 3: Block 40/42s in the 90s

    This mod is the thrid of three to represent the various versions of the F-16C/D in US Air National Guard service during the 1990s. It was a busy time with potential conflicts in Korea and active operations ongoing over Iraq and the Balkans. This mod aims to show the
    units as they were at that time.
    Included
    Team Viper F-16C Block 40 and 42
    new F-16D Block 40 and 42 models
    various period specific weapons and pilots
    various ini edits to match the era
    ********************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************
    NOTE: The D models have very few serial numbers to each unit. most units only had one or two family models. The best use for these is to add on as a member of a flight of single seaters.
    The load outs are the same so you will be able to load teh same weapons.
    ***************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************
    SECOND NOTE: The 124th FS Skin in the Block 40 does only have one serial. This unit only had one Block 40 for a short time before it went to Europe. This serial (89-2032) was the same aircraft that CPT Scott O'Grady
    was shot down in June 1995.

  7. 23d Wing Pope AFB 1994

    23d Wing Pope AFB 1994
    In the 1990s, the USAF experimented with composite wings that would have everything needed within a single unit for deployment into a regional fight.
    The 23 Wing was formed in 1992 to bring about this vision, as applied to direct support of US Army forces. By 1994, 4 squadrons were ready at Pope AFB NC
    to support the US Army's 82d ABN DIV at neighboring Fort Bragg. The 2d and 41st Airlift Squadrons flying the C-130E Hercules, the 74th Fighter Squadron flying
    the F-16C/D Block 40 Vipers, and the 75th Fighter Squadron flying the A-10A Warthog. As is tradition for the 23d Wing, which traces its lineage to the
    Flying Tigers of World War 2, every aircraft in the wing sported a sharks mouth.
    This mod brings together everything needed to get the 23d Wing into the fight. Complete aircraft (including a newly revamped F-16D Block 40 from ravenclaw007), period specific weapons, sounds and effects.
    Included
    Viper Team F-16C Block 40 and 75th FS skin
    ravenclaw007/Viper Team F-16D Block 40 and 75th FS skin
    Dels C-130E_SKE with 2d ALS, 41st ALS Grey and 23d Wing Euro 1 skins
    Various period specific weapons (actively in use 1994-1996)
    Installation
    unzip folder * drop into mod folder of your choice * allow overwrites
    Known Issues
    The C-130 and its weapons are primarlily eye candy. There are unfortuneatly no paratroop drop missions in SF2, and so if you want to drop say 1/325 INF onto a drop zone,
    you will need to select a recon mission and punch those partarooper out by hand
    I have been having issues getting the LAPES Sheridan tank to create a "crater" after dropping. it is still included for the visuals of puching a tank out the back of a Herk,
    and because there was still an Airborne Armor Bn at Bragg in 1994. But at this time the tank will disappear on contact with the ground

    This mod represents the various models of F-16 that were in service in the Air National Guard and Air Force Reserve during the 1990s. These units include the
    - 457th Fighter Squadron (Air Force Reserve) at Fort Worth
    - 704th Fighter Squadron (Air Force Reserve) at Bergstrom AFB
    - 111th Fighter Squadron (Texas ANG) at Ellington ANGB
    - 182d  Fighter Squadron (Texas ANG) at Lackland AFB
    These units have utilized a range of F-16 models over the years and a wider range of missions. The 704th deactivated in 1996, and the 111th converted to MQ-1s in 2009. But the 457th and 182d are still going strong as Viper operators today
    Included
    Team Viper F-16C Blocks 25, 30, 32
    Modified Team Viper F-16A/B Block OCU, F-16D Block 30
    new F-16A/B Block 15 ADF, F-16D Blocks 25 and 30
    various period specific weapons and pilots
    various ini edits to match the era
    new hangar and loading screens
    NOTE: The D models have very few serial numbers to each unit. most units only had one or two family models. the best use for these is to add on as a member of a flight of single seaters. The load outs are the same so you will be able to load teh same weapons.
    Other Note: If there is not a two seater assigned to a unit, there will not be a D model skin for that unit. I have checked about a dozen times to be sure I wasnt missing something

  9. Charlie Vipers on Guard Part 1: Block 25s in the 90s

                 Charlie Vipers on Guard
                 Part 1: Block 25s in the 90s
    This mod is the first of three to represent the various versions of the F-16C/D in US Air National Guard service during the 1990s. It was a busy time with potential conflict in Korea and active operations ongoing over Iraq and the Balkans. This mod aims to show the units as they were at that time. Included is a new F-16D Block 25 from ravenclaw_007 to cover the two seaters in each unit that had them.

    Included
    Team Viper F-16C Block 25 with historical ANG skins
    new F-16D Block 25
    various period specific weapons and pilots
    various ini edits to match the era
    new hangar and loading screens
    NOTE: The D models have very few serial numbers to each unit. most units only had one or two family models. the best use for these is to add on as a member of a flight of single seaters rather than as a flight of their own.
    The load outs are the same so you will be able to load the same weapons.
    ***************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************
    LOADING SCREEN NOTE: I will be including various loading screens with the diferent packs available. In the F-16C_B25.iniyou will find these lines
            LoadingScreen=F-16C_Loading_119.jpg
            //LoadingScreen=F-16C_Loading_111.jpg
    installing this mod will have default loading screen with the New Jersey ANG aircraft. if you already had a different version and prefer that one, simply remove the "//" from the one you want and add to the one without.

  10. Vipers Over Bosnia Pt 1: USAFE F-16C/D Operation Deny Flight

    Vipers Over Bosnia
        Part 1: USAFE F-16C/Ds During Operation Deny Flight
    In April 1993, NATO had documented over 500 unauthorized military flights over Bosnian airspace since the United Nations passed Resolution 781 that prohibited those flights. The Umited Nations then passed Resolution 816 that extended the flight ban to all fixed and rotary wing in the country and authorized memeber states to use all measures need to comply.
    On 12 April 1993, NATO began Operation Deny Flight, combat air patrols to enforce the no fly zone over Bosnia Herzogovina. In June 1993, Resolution 836 allowed NATO to also provide close air support to UNPROFOR on request (This was not often used because requests had to go to the UN in New York, then to NATO then back to the pilots and ground forces involved). As a result, the typical loadout was of air to air missiles as well as a pair of bombs and jaming pod.
    The closest American air base to the conflict zone was Aviano AB in Italy. Many US Fighter units forward deployed there at the beginning, including elements of the 86th Fighter Wing (512th and 526th Fighter Squadrons) which was transitioning from the F-16C Block 30 to the F-16C Block 40. This unit was in the middle of that transition on 28 Feb 1994 when elements of the 526th FS engaged 6 Serbian J-21 jets with the USAF claiming 4 downed (the Serbs claim 5 were lost).
    Later in 1994, the 86th Wing ceased fighter operations and the two squadrons were moved to Aviano to become part of the 31st Fighter Wing (510th FS and 555th FS). These squadrons continued operations over Bosnia through the shoot down incident on 2 Jun 1995 and the air strikes conducted as part of Operation Deliberate Force.
    With the adopting of the Dayton Peace Accords, Deny Flight was determined to no longer be necessary and terminated on 15 December 1995.
    This mod represents the four USAFE main F-16 squadrons that took part, the 512th FS Dragons, 526th FS Knights, 510th FS Buzzards, and 555th FS Triple Nickel. It also covers the two different blocks of F-16 flown at the time (30 and 40)
     
    Included
    F-16C Block 30 and 40, F-16D Block 40
    new F-16D Block 40
    various period specific weapons and pilots
    various ini edits to match the era
    new hangar and loading screens
    NOTE: The D models have very few serial numbers to each unit. most units only had one or two family models. The best use for these is to add on as a member of a flight of single seaters. The load outs are the same so you will be able to load the same weapons.

  11. BOEING B-47E STRATOJET 15th Air Force Skins

     
                BOEING B-47E STRATOJET 15th Air Force Skins by COYOTE AEROSPACE
    This is a semi historical mod to represent the B-47E in service with SAC's 15th Air Force.
    It is semi historical because there were so many variations on equipment and markings across 1300+ aircraft
    over its 12 year career that it is impossible to accurately represent all of them. Instead, a general sampling of 15th AF
    aircraft is shared here.
        INSTALLATION
    get the aircraft here:
     
        INCLUDED
    B-47E(53) and B-47(57) aircraft folders with skins (no aircraft)
    B-47E decals folder
        CREDITS
    veltro2K    ..........................................    aircraft models
    daddyairplanes     ..........................................    skins, tgas, research, ini work on aircraft and weapons, constant nagging on models
    FB B-47 Stratojet (Model 450) Strategic Bomber group .....    very valuable source of information on markings and weapons
        Known Issues
    -several units transferred to 2d AF or 8th AF over the years. there will be some overlap if you get all three packs. just allow overwrites and fly on

  14. B-47E by Coyote Aerospace

     
                BOEING B-47E STRATOJET by COYOTE AEROSPACE
    This is a semi historical mod to represent the B-47E through its career as SACs most numerous bomber.
    It is semi historical because there were so many variations on equipment and markings across 1300+ aircraft over its 12 year career that it is impossible to accurately represent all of them. Instead, all major units that could be represented are (in other skin packs) and the general paint schemes used during the appropriate eras are modded for the forward deployments known as Operation REFLEX. Further, new nuclear weapons have been included.
    To keep file sizes down somewhat, unit skins will be release by numbered air force and available in the SF2 Skins download section

        INSTALLATION
    unzip installation folder
    cut and paste to desired mods folder
    allow overwrites (some effects and weapons mainly)
    IF YOU HAVE THE B28 NUCLEAR WEAPONS ALREADY FROM ANOTHER MOD
    use caution. I have set the nuclear weapons to a specific station code as NUC. Other mods featuring the B28 weapon do not have this yet, although i intend to do a comprehensive ini edit later this year across many weapons and aircraft
        INCLUDED
    B-47E(53) and B-47(57) aircraft
    Operation Reflex skins, and one unit skin for each aircraft)
    Period accurate M64 and M65 bombs
    B28 nuclear weapons, 350Kt and 1.1MT yields
    new Mk15 and MK39 nuclear weapons, 1.69 and 3MT yields

    NightshadeP/R    ..........................................    willing crash test dummy (help figure out what works to use MK15)
    (whomever created them)    ..................................    nuclear effects
    FB B-47 Stratojet (Model 450) Strategic Bomber group .....    very valuable source of information on markings and weapons
        Known Issues
    - At this time there are not models for the RATO pods that were commonly used by the B-47. I have a method figured out for it,
    but we would need someone to model the horsecollar device with 33 JATO bottles
    - Not every upgrade to the Stratojet is modeled. Again, there were 1300+ aircraft built, and 6 phases for upgrades. The (53) roughly represents
    the aircraft after introduction, the (57) in between Phase 3 and 4. Anyone that would like to work any fakepilot mods to represent each of the
    6 phases, as well as modifications like TEE TOWN would be welcomed.
    - while online sources state the 341st Bomb Wing operated Stratojets, veteran and book sources could not even find proof of operation, let alone
    marking information (they came through on all other Wings). Therefore I have not included this Bomb Wing in the mod.
    - The "afterburner" trick to use water injection on take off is in effect, from 99-100%. If you want realism, and to not be visible across the
    continent, dont exceed 97% power in flight.

  15. C-141B Starlifter (by Coyote Aerospace)


        Lockheed C-141B Starlifter  by Coyote Aerospace
    This mod is a new version of the C-141B Starlifter by Veltro2K, with skins by daddyairplanes
    It features several historical skins covering several important periods in the Starlifters B/C model career. European One camoflage is applied as a tga skin, so two varieties of camo on the ramps!
        Installation
    unzip, open the C-141B(v2k) folder, drop contents into desired mod folder
    allow overwrites if needed, weapons may be the only thing needed
        Included
    C-141B Starlifter model
    MAC skins for 1981, 1986, 1987, and 1989
    AMC skins ranging from 1993 through 2006 as well as a special Last Starlifter skin depicting 66-0177, known as the Hanoi Taxi and the last Starlifter to be retired
    Cargo, Jeep, and Paratrooper weapons for the bay
        Known Issues
    - the main cargo doors and paratrooper doors open at the same time. an expert was consulted, and it is not reasonably feasable to seperate the actions.
    - cockpit is an older one, this aircraft is intended more for eyecandy as there are no real transport missions in SF2. anyone who can donate a more modern pit would be greatly appreciated
    - While 63 C-141Bs underwent upgrades to C standard in the late 1990s, the upgrades were internal (glass cockpit, avionics, GPS reciever). as they are not really visible, there is only a B model for here in game. The serials however are accurate and part of the last 63 Starlifters in service after 2002 (when the last McChord based aircraft retired)
    - due to slight mapping issues, there will not be a bare metal version of this C-141B. they dont show up really on the White top, green or gray skins, but would stand out on a bare metal. there were only about 7 that operated unpainted for 9 months during the Desert Shield/Desert Storm timeframe anyhow.
        Credits
    Veltro2K:    main model, intial idea to revamp this plane
    daddyairplanes:    skin and decal work, ini edits
    Killerbee331:     paratrooper, M38 Jeep from weapons pack
    - cargo and pallet are also included although i cannot recall who created those. if it was you or you remember who did it, please let us know so we can fix the credits

    on behalf of the Coyote Aerospace team, thank you for downloading this mod. We hope you enjoy it

        Installation
    unzip, open the 141A(v2k) folder, drop contents into desired mod folder

    Cargo, Jeep, and Paratrooper weapons for the bay
        Known Issues
    - the main cargo doors and paratrooper doors open at the same time. an expert was consulted, and it is not reasonably feasable to seperate the actions.
    - cockpit is an older one, this aircraft is intended more for eyecandy as there are no real transport missions in SF2. anyone who can donate a more modern pit would be greatly appreciated

  17. 1986 Skyblazers European Tour

    In October of 1949, four pilots of the 36th Fighter Wing came together to form the first aerobatic display team in the American zone in Germany. This team and its successors would go on to fly hundreds of demonstrations in front of millions in Europe and Africa, before being disbanded in 1963.
    That team was, .... the Skyblazers.
    This year, Nine Teen Eighty Six, the Skyblazers have finally come home.This reunion, flown in the most advanced fighter aircraft of our time, the McDonnel Douglas F-15C Eagle, brings the Skyblazers out of retirement and back to the 36th Tactical Fighter Wing in Bitburg West Germany.

  20. F-15A 1980s Skinpack for stock 3W Eagles


            F-15A 1980s Skinpack for the Stock 3W Eagles
    This semi historical mod tweeks the stock Third Wire units and adds the Fighter Interceptor Squadrons
    The mod includes tail, unit and nose markings for 17 F-15A squadrons (plus two later sets for the FISs) as operated during the 1980s.
            NOTE
    I say this is a semi historical mod. To save myself research time, it uses modified TW serials. the numbers are the same, i just reduced the opacity to fit the look of the markings better.
            Included
    Objects folder with needed Aircraft and Decal folders
            Required
    StrikeFighters2: Europe for the stock F-15

            Installation
    unzip. move  objects folder to the mod folder of your choice. allow overwrites if needed (shouldnt be any but in case,)

    Credits
    TW:         original serial number, F-15 squadron tail, and innner tail tga, textures
    daddyairplanes:    upscaling, tweeking, and opacity reduction of TW unit markings, new markings, skin folders by unit, and conversion of texture from bmp to jpg

    i hope you enjoy this simple little mod. It satarted with me taking a look in my old mod folders, prior to loading up new installs
    i didnt like what i saw, so i changed it. But maybe you will like this addition too.
