  1. 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.
    ladies and gentlemen, ........the 36th Tactical Fighter Wing and Bitburg Airbase are proud to present to you, your.... United States Air Forces... Europe........... SKYBLAZERS......

  5. 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.

  15. (Marcfighters) KC-10A Extender in the 90s

    (Marcfighters) KC-10A Extender in the 90s
    This is a redux of the Marcfighters KC-10 mod. It incorporates each wing that used the KC-10A in the early to mid 1990s. This includes the units that still operated the Extender at the transition from SAC to AMC, as well as the transition to Travis and McGuire AFBs. Also included are the two skins for the KDC-10 tanker version used by the Royal Netherlands Air Force
    Installation:     Unlike many of my mods, i reccommend just deleting the previous mod if you have it on hand. This is a vast leap over the older skin set, and coversall available tankers rather than just 6 for each camo style. Allowing overwrite should not hurt anything, just dont complain about clutter if you go that path.
                              Otherwise, like always, unzip and install into any SF2 mod folder.

    Included:    
        5 skins for the 458th ARG, 22d ARW, 4th Wing, and the 60th and 305th AMWs in 1995
        multi camo decal sets for these skins
        nose art as appropriate
        tweeked skins for the KDC-10 aircraft
        original decals for these aircraft
    Known Issues
        the model and flight model are the same that Marcfighters included in the original (SF1) ODS mod. it was meant as eyecandy, and had no pit. as released i have commented out the cockpit, but had a sitting on the nose pit so i could load it in game
         to check work. there are also no windows for the cockpit, the entire fuselage is one piece (cause marking limitations)
        it is sluggish, and flies nose down.
        given there is a newer model known to be in the pipeline (eta two weeks), i am putting the lipstick on this pig but not working too much ini improvement. over 3/4 of the work on this should transfer easy to the new model when it comes.comments on how she flies will be referred to this warning.

  16. KC-10_SAC.7z

    SAC Twilight : KC-10A Extender(Marcfighters)
    This is a redux of the Marcfighters KC-10 mod. It incorporates each wing that used the KC-10A in the last few years of SAC service also included is a El Dorado Canyon skin. While we do not currently have this operation in the game, I was able to find pics of ten Extenders in the UK in the middle of April, 1986. Ten KC-10As were used in the operation. you do the math.
    Installation:     Unlike many of my mods, i reccommend just deleting the previous mod if you have it on hand. This is a vast leap over the older skin set, and covers all available tankers rather than just 6 for each camo style. Allowing overwrite should not hurt anything, just dont complain about clutter if you go that path.
                              Otherwise, like always, unzip and install into any SF2 mod folder.
    Included:    
        4 skins for the 2d BMW, 22d ARW, 68th ARW, and Operation El Dorado Canyon with historical serial numbers
        multi camo decal sets for these skins
        nose art as appropriate
    Known Issues
        the model and flight model are the same that Marcfighters included in the original (SF1) ODS mod. it was meant as eyecandy, and had no pit. as released i have commented out the cockpit, but had a sitting on the nose pit so i could load it in game to check work. there are also no windows for the cockpit, the entire fuselage is one piece (cause marking limitations)
        it is sluggish, and flies nose down.
        given there is a newer model known to be in the pipeline (eta two weeks), i am putting the lipstick on this pig but not working too much ini improvement. over 3/4 of the work on this should transfer easy to the new model when it comes comments on how she flies will be referred to this warning.
    Credits and Thanks

  19. Chipmunk T10 BRIXMIS skin and templates

    Brixmis Chipmunk T10 and templates
    This was a quick and dirty mod to provide templates for the rerelease of the de Havilland Chipmunk Trainer and a skin to represent the BRIXMIS recon mission.
                 Requirements
    You will need the original aircraft available here
    https://combatace.com/files/file/17262-sf2-dhc-1-chipmunk-pack/
    otherwise, this should work in any version of SF2
    Installation
    unzip main folder.
    Place objects folder in the objects folder of your chosen install.
    place templates folder wherever you need to, in order to create more skins. templates are available in xcf for Gimp users and psd for Photoshop users

    note: the patches layers are set to create a ribbed effect on the pertinent airfoils. they are set so that you should be able to use them with any other design

    BRIXMIS History
     The British Commander in Chiefs Mission or BRIXMIS for short was a mission that used the legal ability of a certain number of British servicemembers to roam the
    Soviet Zone of Occupation, generally known as East Germany. Reciprocity was enjoyed by the Soviets in the former British Zone of Occupation.
    The airborne component of BRIXMIS flew out of RAF Gatow in Berlin. An observer rode in the front and took pictures of Soviet military activities and equipment within
    a 20 mile radius of Berlin, flying under cover of "exercising the right to navigate within the flight corridors to and from Berlin".
    Serials provided are in pairs for each period of time operated, but in one overall skin
    WK303, WK587 from 1956-1966
    WP850, WP971 from 1966-1974
    WZ862, WD289 from 1974-1988
    WG466, WG486 from 1988-1990
     
    Credits
        From the Original
    Big Al for the aircraft
    Bobrock for pilot figure (A-26)
    AvHistory for the engine sound
    Raven for the cockpit.
    Wrench for everything else.

  21. SAC Twilight: B-52G/H Stratofortress

                               SAC Twilight B-52G/H Skinpack and Upgrade Package
    This is a package that adds several historical skins with nose arts to the B-52G_89 and B-52H_88 aircraft. Several skins also include my skin as tga method to allow several camo schemes in one skin. It also upgrades the weapons loadouts and data.ini's for better
    historical accuracy
        Included
    - B-52G_89 and B-52H_88 aircraft with new loading screens, data ini, loadout ini, historical serials and nose arts
    - weapons including a new B28FI_350 nuclear bomb and upgraded data inis for others
    - effects and sounds for aircraft and weapons
        Installation
    unzip package, put into mod folder, allow overwrites for items that you already have
        AIRCRAFT NOTES
    several skins have tga based skin to represent SIOP mod, Strategic, and all grey camo. this leads to the decal folder being large (over 3.5GB).
        
        B28 NOTES
    the B28FI weapon included is to represent a laydown delivered weapon. it should not be released lower than 1600 ft AGL and slower than 515kts. the B28RI weapon should not be released lower than 6000ft AGL.
    not responsible for fragging is these guidelines are not met.

  22. Operation Desert Storm Skinpack and Updates for B-52G_89


                                                                                                                                                Operation Desert Storm Skinpack and Updates for B-52G_89
        This Mod will add ODS skins for the B-52G_89 found here
    some weapon, ini, effects and sound edits are also included to enhance the operation of this classic bomber
        Included:
    Updated and reskinned B-52G_89, Decal set that puts multiple camoflages on each skin and at least a dozen Historical aircraft with Unit markings and nose art, updated weapons common to that version of the aircraft, a fake gunpod pylon for use with dual MERs, and updated sounds and effects.
        Historical Notes:
    Although you can fly em all, the only accurate skin to fly within ODS would be the Jeddah skin. The others flew from off of the various Iraq terrains available.
    Bomb missions markings not included as these are set to represent the beginning of the campaign.
    While many other weapons can be carried, the improved ones are the ones carried during Desert Storm, and strategic weapons (nukes)
    While ALCM pylon is missing (more below), it only affects the Senior Surprise mission from Barksdale AFB (16-17 Jan 1991). The other Bomb Wings did not employ CALCMs
        Installation:
    unzip. put all folders EXCEPT Templates into desired mod folder. Allow overwrites as needed.
        Known Issues:
    While there is currently a new Hound Dog pylon selectable in the download menu, there is not an ALCM pylon. While some sources state that the CALCMs were carried on the stub pylons, I find that not too likely.but it is how it is carried in game at this time. Either I will learn Blender and create one in the future, or a volunteer would be welcomed to create one (likely a faster route). But at time of initial release (24/12/2018) the cruise missiles are carried on the stubs.

  23. KC-135 Skinpack 2: Post Vietnam (1975-1987)

    USAF KC-135 Skinpack 2: 1974 through 1987
    This skin pack will feature skins for all USAF KC-135 users from 1974 until 1987. This includes the Air National Guard and Air Force Reserves as the aircraft became available.
    Requirements: any version of Strike Fighters 2, and the KC-135 mod found here
    Installation:     
            first, get the Mirage Factory C-135A/B and KC-135A/E/R 1.0 from the above link (if you dont have it already)
            then unzip this to the mod folder, allowing overwrites.
            
    Known Issues:
             this is meant as eye candy. unfortunately, SF2 doesnt support air to air refueling so the best to be done is set up a recon mission and then park it in an orbit.
            Also, Dels C-130 pit does not line up with the model very well. it is included mainly so that it can be player selected (i had to test it somehow).
            In the skins with ADC tgas, loading more than 8 aircraft on a mission will produce irregularities (like only the front half of the camo showing). So far I have not seen more than 8 on a ramp, and it is doubtful you need to load more than that in one area for a mission. Just be warned if you throw all 16 in at once.
            BTW, this thing is huge!!! over 3 1/2 GB size
    So, Whats Included?:
        Skins with at least two examples from every USAF unit to fly the KC-135 from 1974 - 1987, with separate skins for Active Duty and reserve forces
        Colors represented include silver lacquer, ADC gray, and Shamu dark grey over medium grey.
        Skins from 1987 have a mix of Shamu and ADC grey colors as tga. Same skin, two different paint jobs
        Skins from 1983-1985 have a mix of ADC grey and silver lacquer colors. Skins from the 1970s are all silver lacquer and minimal tail markings
        Engines on the A models were adjusted to produce heavy smoke at max thrust. Burning water, just like the real thing.
        Drogue to simulate refueling probe equipped aircraft. Added in loadout screen

  24. KC-135 Skinpack 3: Late 1980s

    USAF KC-135 Skinpack 3: Late 1980s
    This skin pack will feature skins for all USAF KC-135 users from the late 1980s. This includes the Air National Guard and Air Force Reserves. Many of the skins serials and nose arts are the same as in ODS, which the aircraft would participate in a few years after this period. This also represents the era that the Shamu scheme became more common and that nose art made a comeback on USAF aircraft.
    Requirements:
    any version of Strike Fighters 2, and the KC-135 mod found here
     
    Installation:     
            first, get the Mirage Factory C-135A/B and KC-135A/E/R 1.0 from the above link (if you dont have it already)
            then unzip this to the mod folder, allowing overwrites.

            BTW, this thing is big, coming in over 2 1/4 GB size
    So, Whats Included?:
        Skins with at least two examples from every USAF unit to fly the KC-135 during the late 80s, with separate skins for Active Duty and
        reserve forces
        Colors represented include ADC gray, and Shamu dark grey over medium grey. Shamu is added as tga for a mix within each skin
        Engines on the A models were adjusted to produce heavy smoke at max thrust. Burning water, just like the real thing.

  25. KC-135 Skin Pack 1: Operation Desert Storm

     
    This skinpack adds in historical aircraft as used in Desert Storm for the A, E and R models KC-135. It is as close as possible with unit markings and features several nose arts.
        Included
    Skins and decals for KC-135A/E/R models
    Cockpit and ini edits to make player flyable

        Required
    you will need the original KC-135 pack available here
     
        Installation
    download and install the above mod per its instructions
    unzip this mod, then install new mod folder categories to your mod folder (Aircraft to aircraft etc)
    allow overwrites
    fire up game, take off and go pass gas
        KNOWN ISSUES
    This was originally an AI only aircraft. I added Dels C-130 pit so that it was flyable and I could check my work. That said, it is best to not fly from the cockpit as the Hercules' window frames don't match with the Stratotanker's windows.
       UNIQUE FEATURES
    As with most of my large aircraft mods, the skins are tga based. this means if you look for a Baby Shamu skin, you will only see a plain grey skin. When you fire it up in game, you will see a mix of ADC Grey and Baby Shamu.
    AT THE START OF EACH SERIAL NUMBER IN THE DROP DOWN IS A LETTER, (a) FOR ADC Grey WITH FULL COLOR AND (s) FOR THE CAMO'D Baby Shamu SCHEME WITH SUBDUED MARKINGS
    Credits
    BPAO- original model
    Dave- head of/released original project
    dels- C-130 cockpit, used to make each aircraft player flyable
    daddyairplanes- research, 90% tgas, ini work, touch up skin work
    yakarov79- skin templates, some tgas (saved me a chunk of time photographing from a book so again thank you!)
